Meta Overview | October 16 Hearthstone Meta

A couple of weeks after the Druid and Turtle Mage nerfs, the meta has started to settle down. The best decks have separated themselves from the rest, and there have not been many new decks that have the ability to compete. With that said, nerfs to Tempo Mage have been announced, a change that has the potential to shake up the meta. It will be interesting to see how the post-nerf meta develops, with Paladin arguably benefiting most from the changes. Until then, this is how my tier list looks.

Closing Thoughts | October 2 Hearthstone Meta

The meta has started to settle, but with the upcoming changes being made to tempo mage, it will be interesting to see how things change in the coming weeks. I expect the nerfs to make the deck significantly worse, likely knocking it out of Tier 1 and opening a spot for a deck to emerge as the new best deck in the game.


I'm McBanterFace and I have been playing Hearthstone competitively for several years. I have hit legend every month for the last few years, hit rank 1 legend on multiple occasions, and finished rank 4 legend in the November 2020 season. I most recently competed at Masters Tour Madrid, where i finished with a 6-3 record.
