Questa paura è dovuta principalmente ai dati raccolti da Vicious Syndicate, visualizzabili in questo grafico.
Gli sviluppatori però non paiono avere la stessa paura, dato che il Principal Game Designer Mike Donais ha risposto così ad un utente su reddit:

I just checked the data, and no one played 17 cubelocks in a row today.
If you are indeed having trouble with Cubelock there are several decks that beat it consistently right now. It is currently the 12th best deck.
I did enjoy the title of your post though.
In seguito a maggiori chiarimenti sulle statistiche lo sviluppatore ha scritto un'altra risposta, chiarendo che non sono contro ad un nerf al Cubelock, ma preferiscono prima vedere come si assesterà il meta dopo le modifiche.

A couple people asked why the stats I mentioned don't metch VS power ranking so I looked up VS 79 and across all rankings Control Warlock is the 10th best deck. I assume they mix control and cube warlock in their stats. We have decks broken out a bit more but 10th gives you the general idea.
Obviously after the nerfs it will be stronger since none of the cards in cubelock are being nerfed and that concerns me but it is a pretty challenging deck with a lot of opportunities to show off player skill. People will eventually get better at playing it, but people will also put in more weapon destruction or silence cards if it gets more popular.
I am excited to see what people figure out after the patch. If Warlock is a big problem after people have some time to adjust and tune the new decks then we will look into it. I have said many times before that win rate is not the most important factor in our nerf decisions. How people feel matters more, so we will listen to players and make decisions based on that, just like we did in the past with Quest Rogue and Patron Warrior.
