Here are the decks crushing the ladder.

The Hearthstone meta is constantly changing. But no matter what the meta looks like, there will always be some decks that are simply better than others.

Hearthstone‘s Scholomance Academy expansion introduced a ton of new deck archetypes to the game, many of which take advantage of the game’s new dual-class cards. In addition to adding dual-class cards to Hearthstone for the first time, Scholomance Academy also introduced a variety of new keywords and spell types to the game. If you enjoy fresh decks and mechanics, right now is a great time to play Hearthstone.

Here are our recommendations for the best decks in Hearthstone at this time. The tiers are based on win rate data gathered through the Hearthstone deck tracker offered by HSReplay, as well as additional information provided by sources like Vicious Syndicate and the competitive Hearthstone subreddit. The lower the tier number, the better the deck. That means tier one features the best decks.

Below each deck, you’ll find a code you can copy to paste the deck directly into your Hearthstone collection. The meta is constantly evolving, so remember to craft with caution.
