Which Legend to craft first

Recommended Posts

I have a decent collection (basically all commons and rares and most epics) and have a "Legend" worthy deck for each class.


Currently I play wit

Token Druid https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/legendary-token-druid-tgt-deck

Midrange Hunter https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/legendary-hunter-midrange-tgt-deck

Mech Mage https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/legendary-mage-mech-midrange-gvg-deck without the Blingtron HJ combo and without Antonidas

Midrange Pala https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/legendary-paladin-midrange-tgt-deck

Dragon Priest https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/legendary-dragon-priest-tgt-deck

with Boom+Nefarian instead of Chillmaw+Voljin

Oil Rogue https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/oil-rogue-brm-deck

Midrange Shaman https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/legendary-shaman-midrange-tgt-deck

Zoo Warlock https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/warlock-zoo-brm-deck

and Grim Patron Warrior https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/legendary-grim-patron-warrior-brm-deck


I have the worst win-rate with Oil and I wonder whether it is still the "best" Rogue deck available.


I would like to try out a control warrior (preferably dragon control) and I would also like to play Tempo Mage https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/legendary-tempo-mage-tgt-deck


I have enough dust for 3 more Legendaries and I kind of narrowed it down to

Alextrasza (mostly for dragon warrior)

Varian Wrynn (dragon warrior)

Chillmaw (dragon warrior and dragon priest)

Vol'jin (dragon priest)

Antonidas (tempo mage)

Rhonin (tempo mage)


I own all other Legends from the linked decklists (except HJ+Blingtron but I'd like to switch to tempo mage anyways)


So my question is which Legendaries would improve my overall win-rate at most.


I feel like Boom+Nefarian is an almost on-par replacement for Chillmaw+Vol'jin (it's more fragile against BGH obviously) so I guess it's not a top-priority.

Antonidas is required in almost every mage deck, but I'm not sure whether Tempo Mage also requires Rhonin.

For Dragon Warrior I guess that Chillmaw is kind of replacable but Varian and Alextrasza not so much, so without better advice I would craft Varian Alextrasza and Antonidas. Is this a good idea?


And is there any good Rogue deck? Should I craft Malygos instead and go for Malygos Combo Rogue? Or is the Edwin VanCleef Oil version strictly better in the post TGT metagame?

Increasing your winrate and trying new decks is different. Decks you haven't tried before will usually have lower winrate than decks you are already used to. 


It depends on your highest winrate deck and your style of play. If you like slow and heavy control decks, you should go for Alex, because she is both used in control warrior and freeze mage, allowing you to "unlock" two decks. If you like faster decks, craft Antonidas and use him in your Tempo and Mech mage. You could also improve your highest winrate deck (if possible) by crafting a legendary that is used in it. This should increase your winrate with it and you should use that deck to continue the grind. 


You should definitely craft Alex and Antonidas. Alex is used in many decks and is also a neutral legendary, making it more useful in terms of trying new decks. Antonidas is basically a must-have for mage decks. I would wait before spending dust on a third legendary in case a very good deck pops up.

Thanks for the advice!


I don't play one specific deck to grind up the ranks, as I do not have enough time. I just do my dailies (and therefore I want to have a deck for each class) in ranked mode and with the new rewards I try to hit Rank 5 to get the Sea Giants Treasure chest.


I rarely have time to play additional games (I cancel all 40 gold quests and ususally save one for the next day in case I'm lucky to get a 50+ gold quest in order to optimize gold so I often have to win 5 games with a specific class which takes me on average like 8-9 games (winrate between 55 and 60%). So even if I guess I could grind my way up to Legend with enough time, this is not my main focus. And playing different decks is fun - I do not inherently prefer control decks, aggro decks or combo decks.
