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 just gained a new expansion, Ashes of Outland. This new expansion introduces a plethora of cards as well as a new class called the Demon Hunter. As any Hearthstone tier list you look at will show, Demon Hunter’s debut has been dominant. If you’re a fan of Illidan Stormrage, it’s 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. This 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.

Regardless of which deck you choose, try to pick one that fits your playstyle. If you want something fresh, we recommend Spell Mage or Aggro Demon Hunter. Remember, Ashes of Outland is still early in its lifespan, so as always, craft with caution.
