People seemed to enjoy last week’s standout decks post, so I figured I’d do it again! The meta is starting to settle down a bit, but there’s still a lot of fine tuning of decks, including the teching of Hungry Crab into certain decks because of the popularity of Murloc Paladin (What?!).
Keep in mind that this isn’t meant to be an exhaustive list of every powerful deck on the ladder. It’s just the decks I felt stood out this week.
Standout Decks of the Week
The flavor of the moment is Murloc Paladin, and this is one of the versions that got us there. The deck is starting to literally feel the pressure of the Crab as many decks have tech’d in Hungry Crab to beat it.
This is a mix of Tempo and Freeze Mage which relies more heavily on minions and getting value from Medivh’s staff to help control the board and push damage. This deck has gotten very popular recently as Mage decks continue to evolve.
A bit of that old school Crusher Shaman with some of the new Un’Goro cards makes for a pretty powerful control deck.
A throw back to the once popular Tempo Warrior which is a bit more defensive, and has just enough Deathrattle cards to make N’Zoth viable in the list.
Xixo has returned to the #1 Legend spot! One of the decks he used to get there was this Aggro/Token Druid which features the newly popular Hungry Crab to feed on all of those Murloc Paladins.
