PLEASE NOTE: All information is based on personal experience + personal statistics gathered through many hours of high-level gameplay.

Meta Overview | Hearthstone Meta Report August 21
Scholomance Academy has continued to be an interesting meta with so many different decks being viable. With the new nerfs being just released, there has been a slight change in the meta, but nothing too crazy. The game, even though as high roll as ever still rewards good play time and time again, I think it’s clear to most that Scholomance Academy has had a much better start to the meta than the previous two expansions.

Best Decks | Hearthstone Meta Report August 21
Druid may have been the clear best deck in the beginning, but many now question if it’s even tier 1. A massive rise in rogue has recently happened, I expect it to stay around for weeks to come. Priest fans should rejoice as even though they got a nerf, priest is still clearly one of the best. Here is my list of the best decks based on performance in the top ranks, overall matchups, and power level of course.

Closing Thoughts | Hearthstone Meta Report August 21

This week I have seen a huge rise in rogue. The meta seems to continue to develop as things such as Soul DH rise. This has been the first week where I have felt that finally druid isn’t tier 1 anymore. Weeks in and things have constantly been changing, this is from my view an extremely healthy meta.

A couple things to note with my tier list, Libram pally may have a great win rate but is not a good deck in high legend, it can perform very well in other places. Quest shaman I have started to see in top 50 with only a couple expert pilots, I expect this to be popular in the future.
