Wild Meta Deck Tier List Rankings – The Best Wild Decks

If you are curious what the absolute best decks are right now, here’s a list of them below. This list of deck rankings is based on various sources including Vicious Syndicate, HSReplay and our own experience. If you want to see the best decks per class, with short descriptions, keep scrolling down the page!

TIER 1

These are the absolute best decks to take to the Wild ladder right now.

TIER 2

These are very good decks but, usually, have some poor matchups against the best decks in Tier 1.

TIER 3

These decks can fluctuate up and down depending on the meta they are facing.

TIER 4

These decks can find some wins but are heavily dependent on the matchup and potentially unreliable.

The remaining decks may not be well-positioned at the moment, but small shifts in the meta could result in improvements to their position.

Best Wild Decks by Class

Best Wild Druid Decks

Jade Druid is a staple of the Wild format, packaging efficient armor, removal, and card draw alongside the fatigue-immune Jade Idol. However, Jade Druid hasn’t been offered significant support for some time, only making small improvements here and there. Zul'drak Ritualist is the latest over-statted target for Oaken Summons, an upgrade on Ironwood Golem and Hecklebot. Players have also opted to try Ysera, Unleashed, a natural, albeit greedy, inclusion that pairs well with Jade Druid’s immense card draw. Recent trends haven’t been particularly favorable for Jade Druid, as the prevalence of Warlock and OTK strategies has increased over time, however it remains fairly competitive.

Deck Import

Aggro Druid is one of the fastest decks in Wild, having explosive openers utilizing efficient early game minions and buffs. Parachute Brigand is the latest addition to this swarming strategy, able to be summoned for free and add another token on the board. The newly release Embiggen is now the most powerful card in the deck, and has allowed for some more synergistic inclusions such as Echoing Ooze. Aggro Druid’s huge weakness to board clears, taunts, and life-gain has made it difficult for the deck to truly cement itself.

Deck Import

Togwaggle Druid is a combo deck that aims to draw through its deck, then swap it with the opponent’s via King Togwaggle and Azalina Soulthief. The deck makes use of the familiar defensive Druid shell, including cards such as Ferocious Howl, Branching Paths, and Spreading Plague. Players have also experimented with Star Aligner, usually alongside North Sea Kraken and another copy of Juicy Psychmelon, which offers a board clear on the combo turn.

Deck Import

Best Wild Hunter Decks

Mech Hunter is a very aggressive deck, using Mechwarper and Galvanizer to cheat the early mana curve and apply immediate pressure. The Magnetic keyword allows Mech Hunters to create very tall boards, which gives it a particular edge against decks with poor single-target removal. When pushing wide Metaltooth Leaper acts as a powerful finisher, delivering a ton of burst damage. The only new possible inclusion from the recent set is Dragonbane, a heavier minion that provides a bit more finishing power for the deck.

Deck Import

A long-time favorite for many players, Dinotamer Brann and Zephrys the Great were specific Highlander support cards that gave Reno Hunter a much needed boost in power. However, although the deck has greatly improved from where it once was, it has yet to truly establish a foothold. New inclusions from the most recent set are Diving Gryphon and Veranus. These cards are appropriate representations of some of Reno Hunter’s strengths, a deck that is flexible in its ability to play offensively or defensively and able to make solid tempo swings while efficiently removing opponent’s minions.

Deck Import

Beast Hunter is an aggressive Hunter deck built around the highly efficient Master's Call. Beast Hunter has some strong early game minions and is able to make really powerful swing turns. Scavenging Hyena is arguably the MVP of the deck, a snowballing monster that is particularly effective when paired with Springpaw and Desert Spear. Despite some clear synergies and ability to pull off powerful turns, Beast Hunter is still often unable to keep up with many of the hyper aggressive strategies in Wild. Still, it remains a fun throwback deck for some.

Deck Import

With a hero power that deals three direct damage to enemy heroes, Odd Hunter is one of the most aggressive decks in Wild and only knows one place. Odd Hunter’s major point of support this expansion comes from Toxic Reinforcements, a perfect fit in a deck that is looking to weave in its hero power as often as possible. The list still struggles greatly in many aggressive mirrors, unable to seize board control against these other fast archetypes, but excels at punishing the most greedy lists in the game.

Deck Import

Best Wild Mage Decks

Reno Quest Mage is a flexible deck with a very balanced matchup spread that gives it a shot against everything and makes it very difficult to counter directly. Access to Reno Jackson, Zephrys the Great, Reno the Relicologist, and Kazakus means it is able to have plenty of answers against aggressive and midrange lists. Additionally, the OTK win condition of Open the Waygate and Archmage Vargoth are a nightmare for opposing control or combo lists. Reno Quest Mage made some slight upgrades with the latest set – Violet Spellwing is cheap and consistent quest fodder while Mana Giant has greatly improved the consistency of the OTK.

Deck Import

Secret Mage has numerous high-value and high-tempo early game minions that allow it to efficiently seize control of the board. The secrets themselves are highly disruptive and allow the Mage to snowball quickly, before transitioning to burning the opponent out. The additions of Flame Ward and Arcane Flakmage in Saviors of Uldum shored up a previous weakness Secret Mage had to wide-boards. Although the most recent expansion brought nothing for Secret Mage, the deck continues to perform well and has all the tools to be a dominant deck for a long time.

Deck Import

The non-Quest variations of Reno Mage are highly diverse, a trend continuing from Saviors of Uldum. Players have experimented with lists involving secret-synergies, N'Zoth, The Corruptor packages, and Luna's Pocket Galaxy. Due to the amount of OTK lists around and the overall speed of the meta, the featured list has opted to be built at low mana-cost, with high-tempo secret synergies included and plenty of potential for face damage, however Reno Mage players should feel free to try whatever spin they want to put on the archetype as nothing seems set in stone at this time.

Deck Import

Quest Mage is an incredibly fast combo deck. Mana Cyclone and Sorcerer's Apprentice allow for quick completion of Open the Waygate. The quest reward combined with Archmage Vargoth means players get an extra extra turn that almost always results in a win. However, it is worth noting that some players have opted to cut Vargoth. New card Mana Giant means Quest Mage almost always has multiple Giants available by the time the Quest is played, often allowing for OTKs without the need for Vargoth. While Quest Mage does incredibly powerful things and has immense inevitability, it’s still is very fragile against aggressive decks.

Deck Import

As exciting as it is to hurl infinite Fireballs at an opponent, Exodia Mage suffers from polarizing matchups and the inherent risk of bad draw order. Still, against certain opponents, Exodia Mage is more than capable of accumulating wins on the Wild ladder. Exodia Mage has chosen to lean on Emperor Thaurissan (rather than the Quest) to reduce the cost of at least four out of five combo pieces before going in on the combo.

Deck Import

Best Wild Paladin Decks

Using the buffed Crystology, Mech Paladin aims to follow up with Grimestreet Outfitter and Smuggler's Run to buff a hand full of Mechs. It then cheats these out with Mechwarper and Galvanizer to create huge tempo swings. Mech Paladin has insane refill with Divine Favor, and its not an uncommon sight to see the Paladin reach fatigue while never slowing down at all. “What’s the flight plan” might be the scariest question in Wild Hearthstone if you don’t have a clean response.

Deck Import

Odd Paladin uses its upgraded Hero Power to take advantage of numerous Silver Hand Recruit synergies. Quartermaster and Warhorse Trainer act as powerful buffs for the Recruits, and allow each token to act as a threat. Muster for Battle and Lost in the Jungle are powerful standalone cards that also offer even more Recruit synergy. Odd Paladin is able to apply lots of pressure without running out of resources, and has been one of the stronger decks in the format for a very long time.

Deck Import

Best Wild Priest Decks

Reno Priest hasn’t received quite the same love as the other Kabal classes in recent times, however it has seen a small number of really nice additions. Zephrys the Great and Dragonqueen Alexstrasza are huge pick-ups for the deck and improve Reno Priest’s power significantly. Reno Priest can be built in a few ways, but the featured version is a cycle-heavy list using Spawn of Shadows as a finisher, when combined with Shadowreaper Anduin and Raza the Chained.

Deck Import

Big Priest is still able to do what it has always done well, outvalue most control decks. However, the nerf to Barnes and the aggro-combo oriented shift in the meta has left Big Priest in a miserable position. The deck is unlikely to recover and become a powerhouse any time soon, but Big Priest’s ability to cheat out threats with cards such as Shadow Essence and Eternal Servitude is inherently very powerful and the archetype may show a resurgence sometime in the future.

Deck Import

Togwaggle Priest is a new archetype that makes use of the recently released Murozond the Infinite. If your opponent tries to re-swap decks after you have played King Togwaggle, Murozond replays the swap spell, making the switch permanent. The deck is very creative and can combo quite quickly, but is very weak to disruption and has a quite linear game plan. But if you want to try something completely fresh, Togwaggle Priest could be the list for you.

Deck Import

Best Wild Rogue Decks

Rogue’s upgraded Hero Power is capable of generating immense early game tempo for Valeera. Premium early game minions, snowballing threats, value generation, single target removal, and the ability to deal with wide boards… Odd Rogue can do it all. Odd Rogue is one of the safest decks to craft in Wild, looking like a permanent fixture in the format for the foreseeable future.

Deck Import

Since the nerfs to Preparation and Raiding Party Kingsbane Rogue has largely been discarded by the Wild playerbase. Nonetheless, Kingsbane Rogue is one of the most aggressive decks in the format. A pirate package surrounding Ship's Cannon can be devastating in the early game, which was further improved with the additions of Bloodsail Flybooter and Parachute Brigand. The deck does struggle when matched with many aggressive decks but is a decent counter against more passive lists.

Deck Import

Mill Rogue is far from competitive, but still maintains a small, consistent presence on ladder. Mill Rogue uses Coldlight Oracle to mill cards from the opponents deck, and shuffles in extra copies of Coldlight using Lab Recruiter. Brann Bronzebeard and Spirit of the Shark increase the speed of the milling and the number of Coldlights shuffled back into the deck. Mill Rogue is a weak deck overall and does an atrocious job of contesting aggressive decks. Nonetheless, it is a troubling deck for control and combo lists to deal with.

Deck Import

Best Wild Shaman Decks

Even Shaman has undergone some significant changes this expansion. Players are beginning to forgo the Thunderhead led overload packages in favor of a highly synergistic list, built around Splitting Axe. This new approach has looked like a vast improvement. Even Shaman has always been highly consistent, while now having the ability to push ‘all-in’ in the early turns with cards such as Totemic Surge and Totemic Might. Even Shaman is a natural predator of Mech lists due to Devolve, so it’s an excellent choice on ladder if you’re running into plenty of those.

Deck Import

Murloc Shaman is a fairly strong counter against slower decks. Left uncontested Murloc Shaman will quickly flood the board with multiple synergistic Murlocs. A curve of Murloc Tidecaller, Rockpool Hunter, and Murloc Warleader can mean lights out for the opponent. Underbelly Angler gives the deck plenty of reload and Toxfin helps in clearing through large taunts, both previous weaknesses for the deck. The list hasn’t been given much support recently and so it continues to weaken and has seen a huge dip in popularity over the past few expansions.

Deck Import

Best Wild Warlock Decks

Cube Warlock has undergone some changes over the past few expansions. Players have finally began to embrace the egg package, using EVIL Genius, Nerubian Egg, and now Serpent Egg. Cube Warlock aims to cheat out huge demons using Skull of the Man'ari and Voidcaller and then uses Carnivorous Cube to generate multiple copies of the huge demons. Players have experimented with builds using Bad Luck Albatross to fill the opponent’s deck with useless 1/1 birds, however the Doomguard variations are a stronger approach.

Deck Import

Few decks can cycle through their cards quite as fast as Mecha’thun Warlock. Even with this incredible draw capacity, the deck maintains consistent defense that frustrates aggressive opponents. The deck has undergone some changes over the past few months. The demon package of Voidcaller and Voidlord has been cut more often than not, in favor of a cycle-heavy list burrowed from the nerfed SN1P-SN4P Warlock. The list now consistently completes its combo on turn ten and has more removal than ever before. Players might also like to try a Quest variation with Supreme Archaeology. This list has also performed quite well and can have some ridiculous highrolls if the Quest Hero Power hits a combo piece, meaning no Emperor Thaurissan tick is necessary.

Deck Import

Darkest Hour Warlock in all its infamy epitomizes highrolls and coinflips. The deck uses token generators in conjunction with Bloodbloom and Darkest Hour to cheat ridiculous amounts of mana. Furthermore, Nerubian Unraveler being summoned by Darkest Hour makes a response very difficult from the opponent. Plague of Flames can further leverage generated tokens and act as as powerful removal, in addition to the a;ready ridiculous board clears that are Defile and Dark Skies. This deck is highly polarizing in its play experience, often ending games with very little either player had control over, and is becoming scarily consistent with new tools picked up each expansion.

Deck Import

Galakrond Zoo Warlock was one of the more underrated decks in Wild prior to the nerf to Fiendish Rites. The nerf has eviscerated much hope for the deck to gain a ton of traction, but it should still be quite solid. Galakrond Zoo Warlock has a very balanced matchup spread. The deck has plenty of resource generation, sticky minions, late game, and burst, meaning it can handle a variety of opponents. In a lot of ways it has a play pattern quite similar to Odd Paladin, but will feel very fresh to players who haven’t tried the archetype in Standard.

Deck Import

Even Warlock has seen a very small resurgence in Descent of Dragons. Players have opted to include a small dragon package, built around Nether Breath. Twilight Drake was already an inclusion and with the amount of draw the deck has you very often find a dragon in hand to pair Nether with, even with a small overall count. Abyssal Summoner has been a strong new tool, a tailor-made minion for the archetype. Even Warlock has been pleased with the slight dip in Secret Mages, but is still far from being a top tier contender.

Deck Import

Reno Warlock continues to tread water. It got a huge boost, as did all highlander decks, in Saviors of Uldum with the release of Zephrys the Great. However, the traditional, control-oriented Reno Warlock list continue to have the game move past it, as the meta surrounding the archetype only continues to speed up over time. The deck is still decent. It still has the ability to beat out plenty of aggressive lists when it hits its key cards, and the addition of Dark Skies is an excellent one. However, until it possesses some real lethality of its own it’s difficult to see it regaining its once-held position atop the Wild format.

Deck Import

Best Wild Warrior Decks

Galakrond Warrior is one of the few new decks to enter the Wild scene. Any Standard players will likely be very familiar with what this deck can do. Galakrond Warrior is a fairly aggressive midrange deck which is excellent at controlling board in the midgame before ending things with a monstrous amount of burst. Despite being nerfed Scion of Ruin is still incredibly strong and dominates board control. The Wild-exclusive Brann Bronzebeard is an excellent addition, too, able to double up on key Invoke cards or the previously mention Scion.

Deck Import

Pirate Warrior is going through a complete resurgence, buoyed by new premium early game minions and resource generation. Right up until last month Pirate Warrior had been playing the same list from early-2017. What a change one expansion can make! Parachute Brigand being cheated into play is obviously a powerful tempo play, particularly when paired with Ship's Cannon. Sky Raider and Ancharrr (despite the nerf), have also been key. The impact of these cards is quite reminiscent of the transformative effect Underbelly Angler had on Murloc Shaman. Pirate Warrior is finally able have a continued flood of threats, often comfortable after board clears that were previously disastrous.

Deck Import

Odd Warrior’s ridiculous armor, paired with relentless removal, makes it an aggro player’s nightmare matchup. But… Odd Warrior is incredibly weak to infinite damage combos or heavy amounts of greed, both not uncommon in Wild. Still, with a fortunate string of matchups, Odd Warrior can take you far on the Wild ladder. Maybe someday Odd Warrior will have access to a reliable end-game win condition itself, rather than purely relying on removal and armor. Until then, it’s difficult to see the deck moving higher than its current position.

    Is the cycle non-quest version of Mechathun warlock really that much better than the quest version?

    There’s no way the quest version is tier 1 but I think it is one of the most fun competitive decks right now. The cycle version just seems like throwing out as many cards as fast as possible until your deck is gone.

    • HLnug
      January 20, 2020 at 8:20 pm

      Yes, it is much better than the quest version. It’s a tier 1 deck that just a couple days ago hit rank 1 legend on EU.

    Descent of Dragons Post-2nd Nerf Patch update done – thanks Corbett! It took so long because of crazy release & patch cycle this expansion, but we’ve finally decided to pull the trigger. Can’t wait forever. If necessary (so if the meta changes), we’ll do another update after Galakrond’s Awakening fully launches.

    Sorry that it took so long, but Roffle couldn’t do it this time around, so we had to look for other writers with Wild experience. We promise that it will be faster next time around.

    I think it serves injustice to many deckbuilders for not having their names credited with the decks they’ve spent many hours building and testing and having success with. I would suggest adding the deckbuilders’ name to the Deck titles. All other reputable websites that release tier lists follow this practice too.

      Hello, i know that my comment may be a little too late but i found a lot of success with Malygos Shaman from rank 10 to legend in Wild beating all tier 1 decks with more than 80% winratio having below 50% only vs kingsbane rogue, just pointing that out because i saw no malygos shaman list while it is a pretty good choice to punish all these big priests, reno/genn/mecha thun locks etc etc

    Trying to get back into hearthstone a little bit; haven’t played in about two years and want to know which streamers I should watch for wild gameplay. Any other info is appreciated. I use to play a lot of GOOD control decks, UNLIKE reno and jade decks, enjoyed secret hunter when it started in standard, and enjoyed aggro paladin and tempo shaman, NO MURLOCKS or PIRATES.

    And go check out gwent: the witcher card game and do yourself a favor if your looking for something extra, more people should know about this game and give feedback

    Hello, I have a few questions:
    1. Is worth to spent dust on wild cards?
    2. I realoy want to start my journey in this format and play aggro decks (because they cheap). I have a dillema about crafting order in Odd Rogue – i dont have Loatheb, Patches, Zilliax and Boom. What should I craft frist? Which of this cards is most important? Also, I want to play Aggro Druid and Pirate Warrior, so IMO Patches is frist craft, right?

    • Yrkomm16
      January 19, 2019 at 2:26 am

      Also, replacemenf for Aya in Even Shaman?

    • Mirza
      January 19, 2019 at 9:40 am

      Craft Patches first, then Loatheb.

      If you want to play Odd Rogue and Pirate Warrior, then you should definitely craft Patches. It provides a lot of sticking power on the board. Aggro Druid May or May not run it, but I find it a good inclusion as it has synergy with boardwide buffs.

      Loatheb is amazing in all Odd decks and other aggressive decks and I would consider it a core 5-drop. It’s just too powerful for its cost.

      Dr. Boom and Ziliax are not core cards. I repeat, they are NOT core cards and in fact, from my experience, they bring down the deck’s winrate. Dr. Boom is too slow and is often a dead card while Ziliax is rarely useful considering the fact that you should be the aggressor in most matchups. Unless you run into Odd Paladin, it’s bad.

      Really, just don’t craft Dr. Boom. He isn’t seen in other decks anyway. Ziliax on the other hand is great in slower decks and can be slotted in if you are going to craft him for those other decks anyway and if you really want to use him for the sake of following this list.

    Thanks a lot for the information, I had been looking for it for a long time. But I can’t understand why reno priest is tier 3 deck. We can put there skulking geist and jade druids wiil not be a problem anymore. Every aggro deck haven’t got any possibility to deal with all of these removals and heal. Also these is a lot of taunt druids playing in wild, so we can use a combo with confuse(I think it is very usable card) + dk to cope with “fat” creatures. Kazakus potion that transforms enemy creatures into 1/1 sheep can ruin a combo with witching hour + carnivorous cube, often it will be enough to win the game. This is only a theory, but there is smth about it(sorry for my english).

    @Martian @Roffle The Cubelock list is not Dean’s. You mention Sense Demons and Skull but you use a Dooguard build without either of the aforementioned cards.

    May 25, 2018 at 9:53 pm

    We are very much due for an update now that the nerfs to Paladins and warlocks have gone live. I’m particularly curious if Reno lock can exist again or not. I have been out of the loop for some time now, and would definitely welcome some options to get back into Wild. Standard ironically is too expensive for me to play right now.

    • Roffle
      May 30, 2018 at 10:20 am

      Early indications suggest that Renolock is once again one of the better decks in the format. Built properly, it can dominate Even Shamans while still having game against Aggro and builds of slow, combo Druids.

    Are these decks going to change with witchwood or no?

    • Roffle
      April 17, 2018 at 11:42 am

      Some of the decks will likely change a bit after the expansion. Likewise, some new archetypes might pop up. We’re waiting to let things settle a bit before updating the decks/article.

        That’s wise, I’ll go with it.

            I look forward to this section being updated as well, but understand it takes time. Thank you for your work on this! My play so far is that I made it to rank 5 in wild, but am stuck there. Two steps forward, two steps back… so I either haven’t figured out the right deck yet, or maybe the Wild meta is fairly balanced at the moment, which wouldn’t be a bad thing. I’ve tried a variety of decks and am winning/losing equal numbers of games it seems.

    Reno Priest can definitely be better than T4, but you can’t play it the same way as before the nerf to Raza. I’ve had success building a tempo/value build with Awaken the Makers and N’zoth. The curve is pretty nice, and the deck has some solid answers to both aggro and control decks. It’s not perfect, but it’s still quite solid.

      Maybe if you build Reno Priest more like a Tempo/Control deck (so basically the way it was played before Shadowreaper Anduin), it might work better. I guess that most of the players didn’t feel like figuring that out yet, though.

      Would it be a higher tier deck? Really hard to say.

    January 30, 2018 at 3:12 am

    Love this! I play wild almost exclusively now and these updates couldn’t come often enough. I would add combo paladin to the list though. The one with Beardo. It’s excruciatingly fun and quite decent. 😀

    roffle, you recently played Mill Druid on stream. where do you think it is right now?

    • Roffle
      January 30, 2018 at 7:24 am

      I still haven’t played enough games to say for sure, but maybe Tier 3-4? It has the potential to pick up the right matchups, but could still use some refinement.

  46. Cyrusbahraini

    what is better combo priest or dragon combo priest anyone know?

  47. Cyrusbahraini
    January 25, 2018 at 12:58 pm

    Will attempt to watch your stream more for your effort in all this research and time you put in. Respect that you are the one running wild ATM lol.

    is there any way to see stats aginst other decks. I know metastats is working on wild like they have standard at the moment

  48. Cyrusbahraini
    January 25, 2018 at 12:56 pm

    GREAT JOB ROFFLE. Good guide he is right this is what you see rank 5 to legend. the guy is right though you cant escape the standard meta (this is very similar a little quicker). I got to rank 2 this season and dropped down to 5 started playing with standard because there was less guides and thought it would be easier. I was wrong. Games take longer to find also at times. Lots of times you will play the same player back to back so it is good to have a couple of decks to switch things up against opponents real quick if you lost.

    Roffle / Evident, do you find Dragon Priest more effective than traditional Inner Fire?

    • Roffle
      January 25, 2018 at 9:07 am

      I don’t have much personal experience with either deck, but I would tend to lean towards traditional Inner Fire combo being more consistent. A few players have reported good matchups against some of the Big decks common at higher ranks.

  50. TAbril
    January 24, 2018 at 9:16 pm

    Wild – tier 1:
    – Aggro Paladin
    – Cubelock
    – Highlander Priest

    Standard – tier 1:
    – Aggro Paladin
    – Cubelock
    – Highlander Priest
    – Tempo Rogue

    You can not escape…

    As far as I understand this list its just about the tiers.

    So this list doesnt mean pirate warrior is better than aggro druid just because pirate warrior is on top of the tier 2 list.

    • Roffle
      January 24, 2018 at 2:13 pm

      In general, yes. But stats suggest that Pirate Warrior performs a little better right now, despite the decrease in popularity.

  52. Vv
    January 24, 2018 at 11:03 am

    What about Aggro Anyfin paladin? The deck is based on aggro paladin, meaning that its deck power is pretty good, and it has an extremely powerful finisher. It absolutely crushes priest & jade druid, good against cubelock, and pretty good against most other decks.

    Isn’t Reno Priest a powerhouse right now?

    • Roffle
      September 4, 2017 at 1:03 pm

      This guide hasn’t been updated yet since things are still settling in the Wild meta after the expansion. That said, Reno Priest has received a massive boost from Shadow Reaper Anduin and appears to be top tier.

    August 18, 2017 at 3:11 pm

    nothing about season 41?

    • Roffle
      August 21, 2017 at 8:47 am

      Wild (usually) shifts a little less during expansion releases. Most of these decks, save for one or two new card upgrades, hold up fairly well in the current season.

      From personal experience, the biggest differences can be found in Reno Warlock (which leans more towards Demons with the DK) and Jade Druid (which is substantially stronger in the format than it previously was).

  66. Reagens
    August 10, 2017 at 1:08 pm

    Odd. I don’t see pirate warrior on the tier list.
    As far as I can tell this should still be classified as a tier 1 strategy?

    • Evident
      August 10, 2017 at 2:02 pm

      Hey, that was a mistake to not have it on there. Sorry about that, thanks for mentioning it! It should be on the list now.

  67. Squirrel

  68. Sparkz
    May 22, 2017 at 6:26 pm

    In my opinion the WIld meta is just so dynamic and I’m confused why miracle Rogue isn’t on this list. Has great power in wild and I’m sad to see it’s not here. Lets also not forget about the Quest Priest.
    Personally I’m just glad Blizzard is starting to care about wild.
    I feel more and more reno decks will become the best decks in wild as they release more cards. Due to the large expanse of cards and value of individual cards.

    • KolenaW
      May 22, 2017 at 9:19 pm

      No, miracle rogue is far from tier 1, From rank 5 to legend meta consists from few reno decks, this awful inner fire priest, aggro shaman, aggro pirate, freeze mage and quest warrior. Also as long as there is aggro in ladder there wont be overload of renodecks.

    • Dudewazzap
      June 1, 2017 at 5:42 pm

      Anyfin control is far from dead my friend. Tarim has turned this game upside down, paladin control is CRAZY thanks to him. Also, the deck deals insane dmg in one turn compared to the combo decks posted here.

      • Sparkz
        June 1, 2017 at 6:18 pm

        Only Problem is how popular murloc paladin/shaman is in wild. Aggro Rogue runs Finja Packages, and all of that disrupts the deck’s combo. It is definitely still a powerful deck against all of the other classes.

        • Robert Easterday
          July 17, 2017 at 8:32 am

          Hey evident. You have two secret mages in your wild list and no reno mage. I’m assuming one of them should be Reno mage.

          • Evident
            July 17, 2017 at 9:04 am

            I see a Secret and a Reno mage? Maybe I’m not understanding what you are referring to.

          • Squirrel
            July 18, 2017 at 2:36 pm

            Under “best decks” it says secret mage. Then under “great decks” it says secret mage.
