Battle-Ready Decks Announced, Get Full Viable Meta Decks For $19.99 Instead Of Buying Packs

Right now, the only way to get new cards was through packs, and sometimes adventures (or the recent mini-sets). But one thing missing from the game was an option to buy full meta decks. Don’t worry – that’s no longer the case.

For the first time, Blizzard will be selling full meta decks for $19.99. When buying one, you get all the cards in a the given deck lists – usually including a bunch of Epics & Legendaries. And the good news is that unlike some of the deck recipes, those builds actually look good. They might not be the exact highest WR and most optimal builds, but they represent popular, solid, meta decks. The only caveat is that you’re limited to one deck purchase per account. This is also a limited test-run, so they will only be available for 2 weeks. I guess that Blizzard wants to measure whether people will be interested in them or not before fully committing.

You can find a full list of Battle-Ready decks below. We’ll have another piece analyzing them and picking the ones worth it most soon!

Battle-Ready Decks allow for anyone to jumpstart their Collection and hit the ground running in constructed modes!


Our second piece of news is that, for the first time ever, we’ll be offering curated decks optimized for the most recent expansion through the web and in-game shops! When these Battle-Ready Decks become available, you’ll be able to add a complete deck from the class of your choice to your permanent Collection. Each Battle-Ready Deck is handcrafted using data captured across hundreds of thousands of play sessions to ensure you’re taking home a combat-worthy list! Battle-Ready Decks will be available for purchase for a limited time for $19.99 and will be limited to one per account.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why can’t I buy a Battle-Ready Deck when the expansion launches?
    • We want to make sure we preserve the exploration phase of each expansion when everyone is trying out new and interesting things. We won’t be offering Battle-Ready Decks right after an expansion launches because the meta always needs time to settle at first, and we need time to analyze the resulting data to determine which decks we should offer.
  • Why can I only buy one? Will more Battle-Ready Decks become available for the next expansion?
    • We’re trying this limited run now to gauge community interest before we decide how expansive this should be.
  • How long will Battle-Ready Decks be available after they start showing up in the shop?
    • A Battle-Ready Deck will be purchasable for two weeks after it’s been listed on the shop.
  • What happens if I buy a Battle-Ready Deck but I already have most of the cards?
    • You’ll get those cards again as duplicates, which you can choose to disenchant if you’d like.  
  • There are Core Set cards in these decks, will I get those cards again?
    • If you already have the Core Set cards in a Battle-Ready deck, you will not receive them again. If you don’t, purchasing a deck will automatically level its associated class to 10, unlocking all the Core set cards in the deck list.
  • What happens if cards in my Battle-Ready Deck are nerfed?
    • We always do our best to plan around potential balance changes. As such, we’re not expecting to nerf any of the cards offered in Battle-Ready Decks at this time, but we will extend the usual full dust refund to any eligible impacted cards if it happens.
  • I did not have an open deck slot when I purchased my Battle-Ready Deck, where is it?
    • It’s possible you may not see the Battle-Ready Deck in your deck list if you did not have an open deck slot when you chose your Battle-Ready Deck. If this happens, don’t worry! You will still receive all the cards from that deck. If you would like to delete one of your existing decks, you can then navigate back to this page and use our deck list. From here, you can copy the deck code to automatically assemble the deck in Hearthstone.

    I wonder (because I’m too lazy to do the math myself) if the cost is net positive dust or if you get more dust from $20 of packs. I suspect because of the legendaries you’ll wind up with more dust buying the deck. Probably part of the thought behind the limit 1.

    I have a few viable decks already and a savings of dust for the next update so the timing is probably wrong for me. Would be more of a consideration if it came out with the expansion but I’m sure they don’t want to interfere with the preorders.

    I am very skeptikal about it. I make an exemple:

    1) If you want win the best druid deck Atm it’s token with zero legendary, not clown druid. It was only proposed for its high cost in dust to match the other decks 67 / 5000 so don’t say “it’s the best based on the statistics gathered” that’s not true;

    2) If you want win and you choose the best deck let’s say the evolve shaman of december-january, when one single card got nerfed (the weapon to 4 attack to 3) your entire 20 € deck can crumble like a house of cards and you get only 800 dust in this example…… not a big deal , especially if those cards only synergize with that deck.

    For Gods sake finally this seems more fair to me. Rogue and warlock decks seem good ( 3 legendaries for 20 euro seems a good deal). With packs someone should buy or invest in packs a lot more in order to get specific legendaries.

    isn’t it 5 legendary for mage instead of 4? (without counting makrik)

    Xcuse me for a sec, but..:
    If i already have the lock deck for example, and buy it, will I get any extra dust or refund for my old cards?

      you’ll get the cards again, so you can disenchant them

      The answer for your question is in FAQ section:

      What happens if I buy a Battle-Ready Deck but I already have most of the cards?

      You’ll get those cards again as duplicates, which you can choose to disenchant if you’d like.

    $20 a deck but each deck have different total dust? Why?
    It should be fair to make a suitable price for each rarity inside the deck.
    Besides, for most player, they’re just missing a few cards from the deck, so charging $20 for an extra is too much.
    Hard Pass..

    • Ginnel
      April 29, 2021 at 2:35 am

      It would be easy enough to include extra dust to make up the value of the whole disenchanted deck to be equal to the most expensive deck no matter which one you pay for.

    This may be the nail in the coffin for me in the tavern. Hearthstone was interesting when players experimented and played there own decks. Now the meta is “solved” in 24 hours after any expansion, and too many cards will never see play because the are too bad, though they never even got a chanse. Damn netdecking, damn stats, damn winrates, and damn metadecks that removes the fun of exploring and ecperiencing new decks and archtypes.

      Agree. I guess it’s a way to make Hearthstone more accessible which reminds me of wow. They lost me on the way, now I play wow clasic.

      mtg is always waiting, decks in this game are sometimes found out after like 5 years, cause of how vast and weird the game and the meta are

      April 28, 2021 at 10:33 am

      Well, I don’t think that they’ve planned to nerf Tickatus anyway. And honestly, it seems more like a marketing thing, I can’t imagine them not nerfing any of the cards in those decks if they will actually require some nerfs.

      • Ginnel
        April 28, 2021 at 3:21 pm

        Actually a tweet here makes nerfs on cards in these decks more likely and directly contrary to the marketing spiel
        “Also so that there’s transparency, still planning to do balance changes post MT. We’ll be deciding those sometime next week and they’ll be in game the week after. Those could certainly include cards in the battle-ready decks but as of right now we have not made final decisions.Alec Dawson (@GW_Alec) “
