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.
Masters Tour Ironforge is coming up very soon, so a lot of people expected changes right beforehand. While this has been a typical occurrence in the past year, Hearthstone has decided to hold off on a patch until after the MT because they “ran into some issues affecting their timeline”. We should still expect a patch soon after the MT based on what has been said. Until then, the meta remains “figured out” and the same.
The best decks remain the same over the past weeks since the Alura nerf. You can see a few atypical decks arising on ladder like Highlander Mage and Quest Shaman, but these decks are not the best, I think people are just getting tired of playing the same decks that have been popularized for the past months.

Tier 2: March 5 Hearthstone Meta
Tier 3: March 5 Hearthstone Meta
Tier 4: March 5 Hearthstone Meta
At the moment, there are still a lot of decks to choose from when approaching ladder. To reinforce last week’s meta report, the meta feels like rock-paper-scissors. A lot of decks counters others, it’s all about playing whatever has the best matchup spread amongst your meta. According to Alec Dawson’s Twitter, the next balance patch will go live with the 20.0 update later this month.
