As of Dec. 6, Hearthstone’s meta received a massive shake-up via the launch of the game’s new expansion, March of the Lich King.

If you’re familiar with the lore of Hearthstone’s parent game World of Warcraft, then odds are you know the Lich King, Arthas. Though the Lich King has been a part of Hearthstone previously, now we are finally getting to see the long-awaited addition of his class, the Death Knight.

The new March of the Lich King expansion introduced 145 new cards to Hearthstone, alongside the aforementioned Death Knight class. As you might expect, the addition of a new class will have the meta in a state of flux for quite some time.

One thing to keep in mind when considering any deck featured below is the release date of March of the Lich King. Since it is still very early in the expansion’s lifespan, it would be wise to refrain from spending too much dust on any of the lists below.

That being said, if you have the dust to spare, these lists should get the job done. Right now, classes like Warlock, Rogue, Demon Hunter, and Shaman are crushing the ladder, while Death Knight and Warrior flounder with abysmal win rates.

Here are some of the decks dominating the ladder right now in Standard Hearthstone.
