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.
This is the last meta report before some huge shake ups to Hearthstone and more specifically to the Hearthstone meta. Next week, we think the 23rd, expect a lot of reverts to cards that received nerfs a long time ago. This is bound to shake up the meta drastically. This is expected to be a week-long “mini-meta” as the new expansion Forged in the Barrens is set to release on the 30th of March. Until next week we can expect more of the same, which gives people playing Masters Tour Qualifiers one more week to attempt to qualify with refined ‘figured out’ decks/lineups.
The best decks, who would have thought, continue to be the best decks. I personally don’t think the ladder meta is that bad despite it being in a very similar state for the past 3 or so months as there are so many different decks you can play to a high rank. A lot of these tier 1 or 2 decks also have a fairly high skill cap which means there is always something to learn.
Tier 1: March 19 Hearthstone Meta
Tier 2: March 19 Hearthstone Meta
Tier 3: March 19 Hearthstone Meta
I’m looking forward to what is coming to Hearthstone in the next couple weeks as I’m sure you all are too. Until then we shall all struggle to maintain a positive mental attitude (PMA) whilst queuing up the same decks we have been for the last 3 months. May you all high roll more than your opponents!
