Current Hearthstone Decks

I am horrible at staying consistent when it comes to putting together decks for Hearthstone. I'm not much of a theorycrafter - but I am someone who likes to take the bare bones of a deck that I find online, mess around with it, and make it something that I will enjoy playing. I usually make modifications along the way, especially because I'm primarily a free to play (F2P) player that has put maybe $30 into the game since it went live last year. I've opened all the adventures with gold (except the last 2 wings of Blackrock) and a majority of the packs I got from arena runs (only with gold).

So, a lot of people have been asking what I've been playing this season when it comes to Hearthstone. Here are my 3 current favorite decks that I've been messing around with.


This is my current set up for my "Dragondin" (dragon paladin" deck. Yes, it's very similar to many of the other Dragondin decks that are out there - I can't remember where I got the base for this from, but I do know that I messed around with it for awhile to get where it's at now. There are lots of replacements that can be made in this deck, but let me tell you, Ysera is something that makes this deck awesome. Chrominius is cool too, but you'll definitely have him if you're putting this deck together because a lot of the cards are from Blackrock. I'm still learning how to play this one effectively, but my win streak with it has gotten a lot better as of recent.

Grim Patron

I used to hate warriors. Then, Grim Patron came along. Seriously, that card changed warriors entirely and it made a new meta that makes it a lot of fun. I will be honest - I've messed up with this deck a lot, and it's not for the faint of heart - you have to do a lot of math to make sure you're getting those big combos. If you don't know what those big combos are, it's getting that Grim Patron out (which duplicates itself when it gets hit and survives the hit) and combining it with things like the Cruel Taskmaster, the Warsong Commander, and things like Whirlwind. If you do it right, you can almost entirely fill up your side with Grim Patrons that have charge. It's amazing!

More Beasts! 

Lastly, I believe that this is called a "Face Hunter"? I just call it "More Beasts!" because of the absurd amount of beasts that come out and take the day. This is all about utilizing your Knife Juggler well, keeping board control while at the same time hitting the opponent in the face as hard as possible. This is the deck I seem to be most successful with at the moment, so I've been playing it to get up the ranks in the ladder. I think my favorite combo is when I put a Snake Trap up with my Sludge Belcher. Then, if I have the mana, I make sure a Knife Juggler is up too - and it ends up being beautiful most of the time. It's a lot of fun to play. I do wish I had a Dr. Boom for it (a lot of people suggest it instead of Rag), but I don't quite have enough dust to craft him yet - he's next on my list!

So yes, that's what I'm playing in Hearthstone at the moment. It's funny, because two of these classes (warrior and pally) used to be classes I hated, but the meta shift makes them a lot more fun to play. What are you playing in Hearthstone at the moment?

On Thursday, I plan on having an article up about Rematch, which is the best addon ever for pet battles. There are a ton of great things you can do with it, so I want to make sure I let you know how it works and why I love it so much.

Well Met!
