Apologies for the potential necro here, but just wanted to say I just found this, and thought the OP remains relevant. Even after forged in fire, many of the points in this thread still stand.

But I suspect AW's strategy overall will be to leave most cards alone, and let the marginal ones fade into the background, as they are replaced by newer, more interesting alternatives.

The only shame is that some of the game's underpowered cards had such interested potential. The gate to hell sounds so groovy. But maybe they ultimately became too complicated to balance.

It'll also be interesting to see whether any of these cards become more useful with some of the new game modes.

Well they fixed garrison post, so I think they just want to do lots of playtesting of fixes to make sure they don't have to errata a card twice.  Also I think warsledge, Bridge Troll, and Akiro's battle Cry are all cards that may not be in top decks but are potentially good cards. 

There's tons of other cards that aren't quite good enough to be playable, such as Susruko, or Tarok the sky hunter, but no one complains about them because the beastmaster isn't a weak mage.  The real complaint of the original post was that the warlord is weak, and that has been fixed.

What about moon glow fairy. I've built a deck around her just so that way I could say she has been used at least once. Other than going out of my way to play her I never would... but just because she isn't good right now she could become as useful as the blue gremlin if they started releasing more incorporeal objects....

Cards can be released to make other cards good.

I actually use her in my air wizard book. It has 3 of her 2 gargoyles 2 whirling spirits and 1 ooze
