Meta Overview | October 30 Hearthstone Meta
Following the nerfs to Evocation and Solarian Prime in Mage, the meta has developed but not changed too much. We have seen a significant decrease in the power level and popularity of mage but no new archetypes emerging yet. Paladin seems to gain the most from these nerfs, with Libroom paladin looking strong across all ranks and performing well, warrior stays consistently near the top while shaman stays almost unplayable for the 5th month straight. Despite being weaker, mage is still playable and can still perform well.

Closing Thoughts | October 30 Hearthstone Meta
Recently nerfs seem to end up deleting decks from the game without really adding anything new, the announcement of mini-sets in the future keeps me hopeful that for future expansions this stage of the meta won’t be so stale, however it’s just something that happens 2-3 weeks before a new expansion is released and I personally can’t wait for madness at the Darkmoon Faire.
