Hearthstone’s Best Wild Ladder Decks (July 2017, Season 40)

With Blizzard focusing more on the Wild Format, we figured it was time to have a place to gather all the best deck lists from Wild. The Wild format provides a unique environment where all cards are playable and numerous decks are viable, so there will always be a few lists and variations that may be missed.

Best Wild Hearthstone Decks for Ladder (July 2017, Season 40)

This is a list of the best Wild decks for EACH class. This isn’t a tiered list of decks, so a class like Hunter that is fairly weak in Wild will not get you as far as a class like Shaman that has multiple higher tier decks.


  • 7/13/17: Updated and included several decks. Roffle added deck descriptions.
  • 6/1/17:  Added Frodan’s Dragon Priest.

Best Wild Druid Decks

An overwhelmingly aggressive deck, Egg Druid leverages mana-efficient buff cards such as Mark of the Lotus and Power of the Wild to turn cheap, token minions into legitimate threats. The deck has been a mainstay since the inception of Wild offers a viable, yet budget-friendly option for newcomers and veterans to the format alike.
While Jade Druid does not perform quite as well in Wild as it does in Standard, it he has good matchups against greedy Reno decks that often pop up on the ladder. Along with some of the new anti-aggro techs from Journey to Un’Goro, the deck regains access to Azure Drake and Living Roots in Wild.

Best Wild Hunter Decks

Midrange Hunter has some useful tools in Wild, including Mad Scientist and Quick Shot, but the deck’s linear game plan make it susceptible to other archetypes. Too many other decks have powerful swing turns that Midrange Hunter is simply not capable of. As such, Hunter falls in the bottom tier of classes in the format, which Midrange builds being the class’s most competitive option.

Best Wild Mage Decks

With several synergistic tools at their disposal, Secret Mage has overtaken traditional Flamewaker lists as the premier Tempo Mage build in the Wild Format. Early game minions paired with synergy cards, like Kirin Tor Mage and Kabal Crystal Runner, allow Secret Mage to out pace numerous decks in the format.
After enabling Highlander decks in the Standard format for a time, Reno Jackson decks are a staple control archetype in the Wild format. Mage is perhaps the most successful home for the mustached explorer, especially when joined by high-value Deathrattle minions and N'Zoth, The Corruptor.
A perpetually tight list with very few flex spots, many Wild Freeze Mages are opting for cards to manage early aggression prevalent in Wild in lieu of the OTK Evolved Kobold package that was common among previous builds. Arcanologist, Medivh's Valet, and Primordial Glyph find a nice home in this version of the popular archetype.
While data suggests that Classic Tempo Mage is perhaps the weakest of the four common Mage archetypes, the deck is still viable thanks to the addition of Primordial Glyph which fits in well with Mana Wyrm and Flamewaker. With this powerful new tool at its disposal, Tempo Mage is still very capable of massive swing turns.

Best Wild Paladin Decks

Since the release of Journey to Un’Goro, Midrange Recruit Paladin has overtaken Pirate Warrior as the top deck in the format. The inclusion of Lost in the Jungle and Lightfused Stegodon in addition to old favorites Muster for Battle and Quartermaster give the deck enough Silver Hand Recruit synergy to make dominate in the format.
When those unfamiliar with the format think about the Wild format, Secret Paladin is a deck that is frequently top of mind. While not quite as dominate a outsiders assume it might be, the power of Paladin’s numerous high-value curve cards followed by a turn six Mysterious Challenger is still a very real threat.

Best Wild Priest Decks

Previously a fringe deck without much competitive viability, Divine Spirit/Inner Fire Combo Priest has tried to be a thing for a long time. With Journey to Un’Goro came enablers in the form of Radiant Elemental and Shadow Visions to make the combo more consistent. In Wild, Deathlord puts up a massive wall against Aggro decks and a great target for the combo.
With a relatively low curve, Wild Dragon Priests can keep pace with the speed of many decks in the Wild Meta while still finding value in the Discover mechanics of Netherspite Historian and Drakonid Operative. The addition of Radiant Elemental and Shadow Visions makes it possible to find an answer to most board states.

Best Wild Rogue Decks

The recent nerf to Quest Rogue makes Miracle the top option for the class at the moment. This traditional Questing Adventurer list takes full advantage of Rogue’s access to Conceal in the Wild format.
In order to combat some of the aggressive decks in the Wild Meta, Tar Creeper is included in this list, putting up a road block to delay the game long enough for Miracle turns to play out discounted Arcane Giants which can threaten the opponent.

Best Wild Shaman Decks

Control Shaman’s ability to hard-counter three of the most popular (and powerful) decks in the format make it well-positioned in the current meta. Numerous AoE Spells and a stable of massive taunts dominate Aggro Decks, while the ability to copy and resurrect large threats allows the deck to out-value other control decks.
In Wild, Shaman regains access to the Tunnel Trogg, Totem Golem curve that was the cause of many sleepless nights for Standard players. The deck has the tools to manage early threats from other aggressive decks, whle having the requisite reach to end matches against Control Decks.
Something of a surprise to Wild purists, the Evolve Token Shaman archetype that is popular among Standard players has been popping up on recent Wild Meta Reports. The deck performs very well in Wild, despite often running zero format-exclusive cards. 

Best Wild Warlock Decks

Eschewing some of the greedy choices in the deck (including N'Zoth, The Corruptor) in favor of a hard anti-aggro approach gives the deck several positive matchups in the current Wild meta. The numerous AoE spells stifle fast starts and including the burst combo threatens to end the game abruptly.
A more traditional approach to Reno Warlock, the N'Zoth, The Corruptor variant churns out a plethora of high-value Deathrattle minions to resurrect later in the game, allowing it to apply consistent pressure throughout the match.
Zoo Warlock received some useful tools in Fire Fly and Ravenous Pterrordax from Journey to Un’Goro. While this isn’t quite enough to vault it up the tier list in the current meta, Zoo Warlock does have a handful of positive matchups it can capitalize on.

Best Wild Warrior Decks

Despite being overtaken as the top deck in Wild, Pirate Warrior continues to be a powerhouse in the format. Exclusive to Wild, Ship's Cannon provides the deck with the opportunity to create massive swing turns. With more decks running large taunts, Spellbreaker fills the only flex spot in the deck to provide a clear path to the opponent’s face.
A deck reminiscent of Control Warriors of old, N’Zoth Control Warrior slowly grinds opponents out of resources, accumulating obscene amounts of armor in the process. When the opponent inevitably runs out of removal and/or threats, N'Zoth, The Corruptor provides a means for closing out the game.
