Rarely a day goes by where I don't play a few matches of Hearthstone. It's a great game and I still find the matches engaging and fun. I recently just got to a point where I have 4 decks that net me consistent wins in Casual and I felt they were worth sharing. Feel free to share your decks too, i'd love to see what people are playing with.

First things first, I am a free to play pleb that's only been seriously playing since the game dropped on mobile. Also these decks are not put together to be competitive on ranked. I play enough ranked to get the new card back but I am not good enough to do well there. Someday perhaps, but not right now.

Paladin Control Deck

My most recently thrown together deck is my Paladin control deck. This is an odd one for me because I don't think like a control player so this is a good deck to practice with. I looked up good Paladin decks and sort of borrowed some elements from other popular control decks and improvised a bit. I feel bad playing this deck because I hate these cards and how they well they work together. I guess another way to say that is that i've been on the other side of this deck and really didn't enjoy it so I feel bad.


Something Awesome - My Longest Running Shaman Deck

I used to have an irrational love for Shaman. It wasn't the best class and didn't stack up well against nearly everything else. After The Grand Tournament and the additions to Shaman I focused this deck on totems and it does way better. This deck wins less that my other decks but it's fun to play and the end of exceptionally long matches can be really satisfying. Plus having a ton of totems on the board and then buffing them all to insane numbers is incredible.


Grim Patron Warrior - What Else Can You Do With Warrior?

So I have a Grim Patron Warrior deck like everybody. I don't enjoy playing this deck but I use it to get Warrior wins for my daily quest gold. I feel dirty typing that because Grim Patron Warrior is both the most played deck and the most hated. It doesn't take that much skill to play and if you get the right card draw it's game for most people in casual mode. Still it's a solid deck and you can't argue with it's effectiveness.


Quick Beast - Not That Quick But It's Deadly

My Quick Beast deck is my second longest lived deck and was also kicked up a few notches after The Grand Tournament. It's somewhere between an aggro deck and mid range deck. It's biggest weakness is it's lack of card draw and it doesn't respond to things as well as my other decks. That said the beast combos are awesome and Webspinner and Ram Wrangler give this deck an incredible amount of random chance to do some very fun things. Some people knock Hearthstone for allowing so much random chance but for someone that loves gambling when it doesn't matter(like a freemium game) I love it. Bringing out a Ram Wrangler for 5 and getting a King Crush is epic shit and everyone should experience that feeling.


So what do you think? Anything recommend? Realize I have a fair amount of cards but not everything so some suggestions I might not be able to pull off. Also, what decks are you running and have you found anything you seriously recommend I try?

I'll post some of mine later, when not at work. But you could try this one in your Pally control deck... pretty cheap/fun board wipe

I don't have a Wild Pyromancer or enough dust to craft one but when I get it i'll definitely add it in!

Testing my link here, I uploaded 5 of my current decks.

Well, finally:


The following balance change will be made in an upcoming patch:

Warsong Commander now reads: Your Charge minions have +1 Attack.

It's a bit overkill, as Warsong Commander goes back to being terrible, I would have liked something like "Your minions with 2 power or less have charge" (and if they get stronger than 2 power, they lose charge). This would nerf the current combo, but still let you do something with it. +1 attack on charge minions seems fairly "meh"

I agree that this wrecks Warsong Commander but something needed to happen to Grim Patron Warrior decks. Buffing charge minions is totally "meh" there are lots of other cards that buff all minions but I guess this is the best Blizz thought they could do.

I wonder how well used Grim Patron will be after this change?
