Welcome to On the Horizen, your one-stop-shop for everything to know about the current standard meta provided by members of the Hype Horizen team themselves! Every Friday you can expect a detailed report on the meta as a whole and some tips for how to maneuver through it. This will also be a hot spot for other articles written by team members. PLEASE NOTE: All information is based on personal experience + personal statistics gathered through many hours of high-level gameplay.
It has been a few days after the nerfs, which has completely shaken up the meta. Quest warrior’s win rate dropped significantly after the third step of the quest was nerfed from 2 pirates to 3 pirates. Ramp druid is also significantly slower with the mana increase on miracle growth, as well as the adjustment to Kazakusan. Some previously fringe decks, such as mech mage and mech paladin, are seeing more play as those decks were untouched.
The definite best deck is aggro demon hunter. It has early game, control tools, and insane mid to late game damage burst. Control warrior remains the best control deck in the meta despite a Kazakusan nerf. Ramp druid has significantly diminished win rate due to aggro and greedy techs in control decks such as mutanus.

Tier 3: April 29 Hearthstone Meta
Tier 4: April 29 Hearthstone Meta
Meta is still quite unstable from the nerfs. Some of the card choices are still questionable in some developing decks. There might be some more viable decks not yet discovered due to the oppressiveness of demon hunters. Happy climbing.
