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.
A week and a half after the balance changes, the meta is still developing quickly. New decks are still being discovered, while other older archetypes have come back to prominence and look like real contenders again.
There is a real argument that the “best decks” are indistinguishable from others closely behind them. Nothing looks dominant right now, particularly compared to the power of Rogue before the patch. Shaman, Warlock, and Druid all have several archetypes that are performing well, but opinions regarding which are the best may vary.
Tier 1: February 5 Hearthstone Meta
Tier 2: February 5 Hearthstone Meta
Tier 3: February 5 Hearthstone Meta
Tier 4: February 5 Hearthstone Meta
There is plenty of room for experimentation and refinement left in this meta. With the mini-set release date still unknown, it could be several weeks until we see new cards shake things up. For the time being, the decks towards the top of our tier list are great choices for climbing ladder.
