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.
There are a lot of aggro decks, like, A LOT. I personally have found that control decks have done pretty well because of the large amount of aggro, but since they are generally less powerful AND greedy decks like Ramp Druid stomp Control I can really put any in the Tier 1 category. The power level of cards is just very high with so many sets in this rotation and the slower control can’t keep up with decks that can win games by turn 4 (Shadow Priest) or get 20 mana a turn (Ramp Druid). However, just because some decks are in Tier 2 doesn’t mean they are bad, and if you play the right matchups they can actually be REALLY strong
Keep in mind, some of the decks I put on this list are in the top generally while others are here because if you play them WELL they can be very strong. For example, OwlTK Warlock is a hard to play deck and the winrate might not be high as other top tier decks, but if you take the time to learn the deck and the matchups it also as the POTENTIAL to be one of the best decks in the game. Same goes for Control Warrior, Bolner OTK Shaman, and Charge Warrior.
Most of the other decks on this list have a simple strategy, go for pure aggro and rush your opponent down or greed for value with Kaz.
Tier 1: March 4 Hearthstone Meta
Tier 2: March 4 Hearthstone Meta
Tier 3: March 4 Hearthstone Meta
This meta is Dominated by either heavy aggro decks or super greedy decks. I think there are a few control decks (most notably from Warrior) that have stood a chance in the last couple of days but generally speaking there are too many value cards and too many aggro cards in the meta right now. This is just because there are 6 sets and 3 or 4 minisets in rotation and control got the short end of the stick in most of them.
That being said, Hearthstone developers have said they want to bring down the power level of cards and bring the meta back to one that is more board based. If that is the case I think next month will be the start of a new more control and midrange meta we have not seen much in the past several months.
