Burza just confirmed that create cards will be in ranked.
That's no surprise.
There were zero chances that after one year of Create in ranked, they would remove it after the PTR. They could have had those cards restricted to Arena, with little to no effort. They could have had reworked during Homecoming, but they didn't. Simply because Create as a mechanic belongs to the simplified version of the game they are building. Gascon fits the new game.
And, they broke their word.
"We heard you discussing the “Create” mechanic. At first, we thought it would be an interesting addition to the game, but — as time passed — we realized that this form of wide RNG is not something that fits our focus on player skill. We will be extra careful with these types of mechanics in the redesign process. That said, if we manage to find some cards interesting enough to include, but ‘too crazy for Ranked’, they will still have their place in Arena and Casual Mode. "
