I posted a ton of decks from the first day of the Knights of the Frozen Throne launch, so I wanted to call out a few of the decks that stood out from the rest. These might not all be the best decks, but they either saw a lot of play or brought something unique to the table.

Standout Decks of Knights of the Frozen Throne
Probably the most obvious addition to the list. J4CKIE went 23 and 0 with this deck. Warlock seems to be back with a vengeance, or at the very least everyone wants to see it succeed. Out of all the classes I saw played throughout the day it was Warlock that was most well represented.
Defile appears to be one of the keys to Warlock’s early success, while Bloodreaver Gul'dan allows you to swing the game and protect you from lethal.
A lot of people were having success with Jade Druid, but Zalae used it to win 18 in a row on his way to Legend. Ultimate Infestation
was one of the most highly touted cards coming into the release, and early on it seems to be the powerhouse we were promised. A card that was maybe a bit less on the radar was Spreading Plague
which seems to fit nicely into the Jade package.
Mage seemed to be mostly avoided for the most part, but weghuz ran this Jaina Control Mage that did rather well early in the day. I’m guessing people might have had their fill of Mage recently due to all the Freeze/Burn Mage that was being played.
Warrior got a lot of attention in the first day, and one of the main lists I saw running around was various form of Tempo Warrior. Fibonacci put together a version that runs both the Warrior Death Knight and N’Zoth!
Dog seemed hellbent on getting this deck to work. It’s an awesome concept, you can fill the board with Arcane Giant and/or you can go to fatigue with repeating Dead Man’s Hand over and over. One of the problems for this deck for the average player is that it seems to be pretty difficult to play.
One of the decks a lot of people were kind of hoping would make a run is Highlander Priest. I saw many different versions, and they all seemed to have a decent amount of success. TicTac’s version got him to rank 5.
A bit of a familiar build, but Paladin was pretty strong throughout the Journey to Un’Goro meta, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that it continues to impress.
