Meta Overview | Hearthstone Meta Report July 31
The meta will likely continue to be the same until the new expansion Scholomance Academy is released on August 6th. Highlander Hunter continues to prove why most top players are calling it the best deck in the game. It seems as if the best counters to this deck are Murloc Paladin and Control Bomb Warrior.
You will find decks like Tempo Demon Hunter and Zoo Warlock fair well against Highlander Hunter because of their ability to flood the board early on. There are a lot of decks that can be successful in the current meta, it merely depends on what you are playing against at your rank and knowing each matchup.
Best Decks | Hearthstone Meta Report July 31
Here is my list of the best decks based on performance in the top ranks, overall matchups, and power level, of course.
- Highlander Hunter
- Control Bomb Warrior

- Tempo Stealth Rogue

- Highlander Mage
- Murloc Paladin

Closing Thoughts | Hearthstone Meta Report July 31
This may not be the most exciting meta report, but you will be in for a treat with next week’s updates coming soon after the new cards are released. I am sure we will be seeing a whole new breed of decks arising and making waves as qualifiers for Masters Tournament Madrid begin 1 day after Scholomance releases, so stay tuned!
