Meta Overview | Hearthstone Meta October 9
For this week I am going to be looking at the meta from the perspective of GM. Now being a better time than ever with playoffs starting up. Overall, the meta seems solved, and ends up coming to players choice. Most players choose from 4 of the X following Priest, Secret Rogue, Bomb warrior, Demon Hunter, and Mage. Where it gets interesting is when you get into the more interesting decks such as counter Bomb Warrior decks, Highlander Rogue, and players still believing in the nerfed Survival Druid.
Best Decks | Hearthstone Meta October 9
From my point of view, I think a deck to be feared is Soul Demon Hunter. It is too efficient at what it does in the overall meta and is generally only weak to weaker decks such as quest druid and broom pally. Bomb Warrior. Bomb Warrior is stronger than most give credit for, its matchup spread for what people bring in GM is insane. It just gets banned a lot of them time, which is underappreciated as it allows your Soul Demon Hunter to get by. How can one consider this strong when counter bomb warrior is a thing? Simple answer really, counters to Bomb Warrior is very niche.
Small note before we get into the tier list, for this week I will be looking at this from a GM, conquest lineup perspective, and not a ladder perspective.

Closing Thoughts | Hearthstone Meta October 9
I think as a surprise to no one the decks I have on top of this list for GM, would also happen to be the decks I would consider the best on ladder as well. I am expecting that the people with just the good decks, soul dh, Bomb warrior, Secret Rogue, priest, and mage to do the best. I am personally very curious to see how the couple of bomb warrior counter lineups do. I personally think Jarla can easily win Europe as they have 10 bomb warriors, along with the fact Jarla is particularly good.
