Introduction | September 25 Hearthstone Meta
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 hotspot for other articles written by team members. PLEASE NOTE: All information is based on personal experience and personal statistics gathered through many hours of high-level gameplay. This week is brought to you by coolkid2001.
Meta Overview | September 25 Hearthstone Meta
Not much seems to have changed meta-wise throughout the last week of Hearthstone. The best decks Soul DH, Bomb Warrior, Tempo Mage and Survival Druid (to name a few) continue to be the best decks. This however, isn’t necessarily a bad thing as we see 9 classes, with the rise of paladin this week, each with a playable deck able to do its own broken thing. We saw a few players hit top legend with their own variation of Libram Paladin, most notably ‘Gle’ who hit rank 15 (I believe?) with his Libram Paladin which features cards such as Pen Flinger and Cult Master. The only class that continues to not be featured in high legend is Shaman.
Heroic Brawliseum | September 25 Hearthstone Meta
This week we get something a little different as we see the Heroic Brawliseum entering the game for this week only. The Heroic Brawliseum lets players enter to play some higher than ladder stakes Hearthstone with some insane rewards. It works similarly to how the Arena system works. Players bring 1 standard deck and then battle against other Heroic Brawliseum players, your run ends when you either win 12 games or lose 3 games. As mentioned earlier there are some insane rewards, with them improving the closer you get to 12 wins. If you manage to get to 12 wins in this Brawl you will be rewarded with 50 packs, 1100 gold, 1100 dust and 3 golden legendary cards. However, there is an admission fee for this Tavern Brawl.
To enter the Brawlisuem, it will cost you either 1000 gold or 10USD.
It is hard to know exactly what the Brawliseum meta is going to look like, but it shouldn’t stray too far away from what we see on ladder. They may be a little more room for some more ‘out there’ decks, forexample; If you guess that there are going to be numerous Bomb Warriors and Soul Demon Hunters (which there may very well be) you can tech against that by running cards like Acidic Swamp Ooze or Kobold Stickyfingers. You could also be one step crazier and bring something like Monsanto did to Masters Tour Madrid and hard counter weapon decks. If I had to suggest a single deck for the Brawliseum I would suggest Face Hunter as it fairs well against Druid and Mage.

Closing Thoughts | September 25 Hearthstone Meta
The meta in all seriousness is in my opinion very balanced and makes for a good laddering experience as long as you are dodging Solarian Primes/Puzzle Boxes/Evocations. My suggested deck to play on ladder is the same as I suggested for the Brawliseum, Face Hunter. If you are one of the ‘screw aggro, aggro takes no skill’ kind of people Dragon Control Priest is another very good deck that is extremely enjoyable to play (it does need to be played very well though). Good luck have fun and may the Solarian Prime gods be on your side.
