Save your dust for now.

Hearthstone’s new Forged in the Barrens expansion has finally arrived.

Today, players are getting their first idea of what it feels like to play Hearthstone in the Barrens.

The current set block is one of the most exciting in Hearthstone’s history. Forged in the Barrens makes its debut alongside the highly anticipated Core set. Both of these new sets will change the way Standard Hearthstone is played entirely.

Though it will be gaining some new toys, Standard will also see some popular sets rotate to Wild today. If you’re a fan of the Highlander archetype, don’t get your hopes up for a deck with Forged in the Barrens. All of the cards that make the Highlander archetype tick will be rotating to Wild alongside everything else with Saviors of Uldum.

In actuality, there are a ton of deck types that just won’t work anymore due to all the tools they’ll be losing. Don’t be sad though; Forged in the Barrens and the Core set look like they could set up one of the most exciting metas in Hearthstone’s history. If you want a metagame that feels extremely fresh, there has arguably never been a better time to dive into Hearthstone.

Something to keep in mind for the next week is that there is no meta. Do not craft any of the expensive cards in any of these lists. Instead, use the following list as a framework to make something similar with your collection.
