Here’s where I will be listing the best decks for you to ladder with in the Hearthstone Standard format. This isn’t a list in order of the best decks, but displays the best decks for EACH class. So, some classes might be weaker than others which means while the deck listed might be the best for it to ladder with, it doesn’t mean it’s a top tier deck in the game.
If you make it to Rank 20 on the Hearthstone ladder, this is the card back you will receive this month:
Best Hearthstone Ladder Decks for Un’Goro in April 2017 (Season 37, Standard)
- Update (4/20/17): Removed Handlock and Quest Shaman and updated a few lists.
- Update (4/13/17): Removed Quest Mage and replaced it with Freeze Mage. Updated a couple of lists to more recent versions.
- Update (4/8/17): Fully updated for the Un’Goro meta. Keep in mind that a lot of these decks are still being refined, and are being viewed as strong in the early stages of the Un’Goro expansion.
Best Standard Druid Decks
A potentially strong aggressive Druid deck that utilizes board floods to overwhelm the opponent.
Jade Druid isn’t being played as much at the moment, but will still be a powerful deck once the meta settles down.
Best Standard Hunter Decks
Midrange Hunter is looking like a strong deck in the early stages of Un’Goro meta. The Quest version of Hunter seems to have immediately fallen out of favor.
Best Standard Mage Decks
Quest Mage is starting to seem like a bit of a bust, but Freeze Mage who we thought might be dead has come back strong!
It’s possible that Tempo Mage is not yet dead in Standard even though it lost the powerful Flamewaker
. A Tempo list that features Elementals is also a possibility.
Best Standard Paladin Decks
Midrange Paladin has burst onto the scene and become one of the most powerful decks in the meta!
Best Standard Priest Decks
Another deck thought dead is Dragon Priest. With Blackrock Mountain gone to Wild, it lost a lot of core cards, but the power of Drakonid Operative
seems to be too alluring and can still be played with a smaller amount of Dragons.
Best Standard Rogue Decks
Eloise hit Rank 1 Legend with Cross7224’s version of Miracle Rogue. It just seems like you can’t take this deck down, even when the deck lost two core cards in Azure Drake
. Sherazin, Corpse Flower
might actually be a playable legendary, but it’s still too early to tell.
A deck that is still in need of refinement but is very powerful in the beginning of the Un’Goro meta. The Quest can be completed by turn 4 or 5, and with cards like Stonetusk Boar
becoming a 1 mana 5/5 charger, the deck becomes extremely hard to beat once the Quest has been played.
Best Standard Shaman Decks
Midrange Jade Shaman was a powerful deck as we went into the Standard rotation, and it seems like the Elemental package has complimented it nicely. We’re still in the early stages of this deck, however, and it’ll be interesting to see if the Jade part of the deck sticks around.
Best Standard Warlock Decks
It seems unlikely early on that the Quest version of Zoo is going to be played. This version of Zoo, however, is very powerful and can deal with a range of different decks.
Best Standard Warrior Decks
Aggro Pirate Warrior is still the premiere aggro deck on the ladder. It lost very little to the Standard rotation, and we’ll see how it evolves as people experiment with some of the new cards.
Probably one of the best decks early in the Un’Goro meta game is the Quest Control Warrior. It is filled with heavy Taunt minions that make it difficult for Aggro to deal with, and finishing the Quest gives it a huge boost against later game Control decks.
