Top Standard Legend Decks From Ashes of Outland – Week 12 – June 2020

In the end, Twin Slice nerf didn’t change much. Yes, it made combos with some cards more difficult, but those cards are still good – and so is Twin Slice. If anything, it made the Demon Hunter builds even more aggressive, to take advantage of a slightly higher damage potential with Twin Slice. Because while it’s harder to pull out e.g. crazy Altruis combos out of nowhere, the new Twin Slice adds a few points of damage to the burst potential (since playing both copies, while it costs mana, is now +2 damage compared to the previous version).

Overall, the meta is still basically the same as it was. Interestingly enough, this week we are featuring a lot of Priests – mostly Galakrond versions, but even some Highlanders. And there was more – we haven’t featured every single Galakrond Priest deck, because there were simply too many of them (and we want to have some diversity in the featured decks section). We’ll see whether it’s a trend that will continue, or maybe just a coincidence.

And like always around that time, we’re having less and less decks to feature. The thing is that people aren’t so eager to share their high Legend climbs when they’re done with the same decks over and over again, so we don’t have nearly as much stuff to post. At the same time – I don’t think that it’s a huge problem, because you probably also don’t need to see literally the same Demon Hunter or Enrage Warrior build for the 100th time.

Luckily, we’re getting closer and closer to the expansion announcement. Historically, those were released either early or in the middle of the month before expansion. E.g. Ashes of Outland was first teased on March 12 and announced on March 16. But then again, Saviors of Uldum was announced on July 1 (I’m not counting DoD, since 3rd expansion of the year was always announced at BlizzCon). Which means that we could start seeing Blizzard dropping some teasers as early as next week, and in ~2 weeks at the very latest. I really can’t wait!

Below, you will find a full list of the Legend decks from last week, sorted by the highest placement.

    Me with the start of the expansion: “Priest dominates and really isnt fun to play against.”
    Everyone on HSTD: “Dude shut up you low tier bronze player have no clue what you are talking priest isnt that strong.”

    The meta now: Every 2nd game against priest, they always pull the same sh*t out and win with basically the same cards on the same turn with the same combination.

    Told you.

      Priest isn’t even dominating right now – it just happened that this specific week we had a lot of Priests in High Legend. The week before we had like 3-4 Priest decks featured. The week before that – 2. One of the main reasons is that Bomb Warrior is pretty popular in high Legend too, because it counters Tempo Demon Hunter, and Galakrond Priest is the best counter for Bomb Warrior. It’s a rock-paper-scissors situation in a pocket meta. In reality, over the last week, the deck has 5-10% popularity depending on the rank. If you really play against it every second game, then you’re incredibly unlucky.

      The deck is still low Tier 2. Decks like Tempo Demon Hunter, Enrage Warrior, Bomb Warrior, Highlander Hunter or Spell Druid are all better. Highlander Mage & Galakrond Rogue are probably on a similar power level. I wouldn’t really call that “dominating”.

      I get it, Priest is not fun to play against, but lots of players have turned the class into some sort of boogeyman for the last few expansions, where in reality it was usually sitting comfortably in T2-T3 and not dominating at all. And the low rank comments usually refer to Resurrect Priest in particular, which was a terrible deck at high ranks and very popular + strong at low ranks. Galakrond Priest is kind of the opposite – it’s a much more difficult deck to play correctly than the Resurrect variant, and it doesn’t counter Aggro so well, so it was never an amazing deck at low ranks (and gets better at higher ranks).

    The meta is stale. Can’t wait for the next expansion.

    Would be cool if each week they rotated like 4 wild cards in. Would definitely liven up the meta!
