Top Standard & Wild Legend Decks – United in Stormwind Week 6 – September 2021

As you can probably imagine, we don’t have many meta changes compared to last week. The last balance patch has basically killed the Stealer version of Questline Warlock, but – as you can probably imagine – Flesh Giant nerf didn’t have a huge impact on the less combo-oriented build. Yeah, you can no longer drop cheap/free Giants on Turn 5 or something along those lines, but it’s not a problem, the deck can stall long enough. Most of the builds right now focus more on drawing cards to activate Blood Shard Bristleback and Barrens Scavenger as quickly as possible – most of the time a big tempo push combined with amazing defensive capabilities of those two is enough to swing the game in your favor. If you throw in a Giant or two during that turn, most of the decks will just concede. And those who for whatever reason can clear that will still most likely die later after you finish the Quest and start taking fatigue.

Wild has changed a bit, because a new deck popped out (thanks to the bugged Maxima Blastenheimer + C'Thun interaction), but it was hotfixed already so it’s irrelevant at this point. The meta is still dominated by Questline Warlock, although we do have some hope on the horizon.

Another balance patch should be released relatively soon. Last week devs have confirmed that it will contain nerfs and buffs, both for Constructed and Battlegrounds. We don’t have a date for it yet, but I would hope that it drops next week (if yes, then Tuesday is most likely). That’s the last chance for a major meta change before mini-set releases in a few weeks.

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

    I think battlegrounds is surprisingly balanced for the amount of changes that were made. Beast is a little overpowered and Pirates need a buff for sure.

    The real issue is the leapfrogger animation, the amount of time to finish some end game battles gets pretty outrageous especially if you both have LF and a Baron.

    Maybe this has been already asked, but what happened to deck guides? Last one I can find is for Barrens’ Secret Paladin, even before the Wailing Caverns mini-set (!).
    No criticism on this, of course, I get that you guys might be very busy with everything that’s been going on in Hearthstone lately and there’s lots of fronts to cover. I just wonder if you plan to post more deck guides eventually when you have time for it, I really enjoyed them and think they are very useful to get a good understanding of how a deck functions, so it would be great to see them again for some of the new archetypes that have been popping up.

      Deck guides weren’t doing very well (sadly not that many people were reading them) so we’ve decided to cut them and redirect those resources elsewhere. Hearthstone is getting more and more content each year and we have finite amount of time to cover all the articles, guides etc. I would love to get back to them at one point, but it will be difficult now that HS will have even more content with Mercs 🙁

        I was afraid that was going to be your answer, that’s sad to hear, but I guess I still have OldGuardian videos on Youtube xD
        Anyway, keep up the great work guys, you’re definitely my go-to resource for all things Hearthstone and will continue to be 😉

    Well, I think Standard can have a little breather knowing Quest Handlock has a natural counter. Demon Hunter Glide. But I can’t speak for the Wild. Warlock mostly done on Turn 5-7.
    After 2 nerfs hitting support cards instead of the real issue, aka, the fatique damage mechanic, I very much doubting the next one gonna be different.

    I’m gonna laugh at them so hard if they nerf Flesh Giant again to 11 mana instead of The Demon Seed interaction.

      That would be hilarious. But if they nerf it again, they will probably do 12 right away to save them one extra step.

        I get this feeling the nerf (or buffs) won’t come until any soon because I don’t think they wanna disrupt any meta in the middle of Grandmasters.
        With it and the playoffs, 4 weeks total remaining.
        Coincidentally, they didn’t confirm any date, and Mercenary release on 12 oct, exactly 4 weeks after.

        My best guess, all of the updates, nerfs and buffs, and of course the miniset will be happening there. (I could be wrong)
