Introduction – Hearthstone Meta Report – May 27
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.
So after the Nerfs AND Buffs a little over a week ago the meta definitely got shaken up. First the pure aggro and burn decks of Naga DH and Questline Hunter both lost almost 10% in winrate. Second, Decks that were widely considered bad (Curse Warlock, Thief Rogue, and Priest) all started to see more play and become powerful meta decks. Finally, when taking a look at the meta as a whole there is less aggro and more Board Based Decks / Control Decks.
These best decks are based on personal experience in combination with stats from various websites. Overall, I the best decks are decks with a Combo of some sort OR good tempo getting out huge stats as early as possible.
Tier 1 (VERY GOOD)
Tier 2 (Good for Climbing)
Tier 3 (Can climb, but harder)
The Meta is in a fairly healthy spot now. There is a good mix of strong decks with almost every class having some representation (except DH). Some decks need a little more play to know if they are top tier, but the ones that show the most promise that were NOT included were Face Hunter and Mill Warlock. Overall, this slower meta that is more based on board and slower combos is a meta I have always enjoyed and it is more skill expressive than the extremely aggressive metas of the past in my opinion. I hope you all are enjoying this meta as much as I am.
