Hearthstone Meta Analysis: Week of 16/11/14 - 22/11/14

 

Welcome to an ongoing weekly series where I discuss the state of the meta-game in Hearthstone. Which classes are strong? How should you be building your decks to counter them? Which is the best class to be playing right now to climb ladder? These are all questions that I hope to address in these articles. So let’s jump right in.


 

Common Decks and Cards.

 

After many weeks of dominance, this week has finally seen a downswing in the number of Hunters and Zoos terrorizing the ladder. Perhaps as a response to last week's trend of people running Priest to counter these decks, people have responded by running superior late game decks to beat Priest, while still holding their own in those two crucial fast matchups.
 
With Hunter's Mark all but disappearing from the Meta (most Hunters are only running 1, if any), these late game decks are far more likely to be able to dominate the game with their huge minions if they can stabilise to that point. Due in no small part to this, Handlock is making a strong comeback. In any meta where Control is present, Handlock will do extremely well, and with Hunters running limited resources to deal with 8/8 giants that matchup is still extremely winnable.
 
The Hunter deck you are most likely to face right now is the all out Face Rush Hunter, and as such you are more likely to encounter Explosive Trap than any other trap. Again, strengthening the power of Control.
 
The Control Decks being run tend to be running a smooth curve as opposed to greedy lists that stack up on late-game power. Most Warriors are running additional cards such as Whirlwind or Cleave. Even Paladin has started to make a comeback, with lists appearing that run a curve all the way from Zombie Chow and Echoing Ooze, all the way up to Tirion and even Deathwing. Due to this, there is an opportunity to out late game these decks by building greedier lists with more end-game cards if the Hunters and Zoos continue to diminish.
 
Druid has made a strong comeback this week with Ramp Lists appearing that follow the smooth curve outlined above, playing cards like Zombie Chow and Earthen Ring Farseer to stabilise their early game, before following up with the flood of huge taunts Ramp is known for to crush the aggro decks out of the game. Lifecoach's Miracle Druid has also made a splash this week due to a strong matchup against Hunter and Zoo and a great chance to take the game away from Control decks with a strong draw.
 
Rogue remains a dark horse. Miracle Rogue is uncommon but still certainly present on the ladder. If the trend of Control decks continues then Miracle may come back into favour due to the amount of time these decks give Rogues to set up their win conditions.
 

Card Choices

 

Since this week's meta is a healthy mix of Control and Aggro, building a deck against the field seems to be the way to go. Some early-game board presence or removal is required to fend off the Hunters and Zoos, but at the same time you need enough late-game power to not simply get outlasted by the Control Decks. 
 
Following the trend of the Druids and Paladins mentioned above seems to be solid strategy. A smooth curve of early and mid-game cards that top out at a significant late-game presence would appear to give you the best chance of competing against the field right now.
 
However, there is an opportunity to try and get ahead of the meta by running a greedy control deck. This is a calculated bet that Hunter and Zoo will continue to diminish in the coming days and instead going all-in against a Control heavy meta appearing. Predictions like this are what let people really climb to the top of Legend, however, for people simply trying to climb the ladder and achieve Legend, the "smooth curve" strategy seems to be the best.
 

 

Class Power Rankings


 

 

1. Warlock


 

250px-Guldan-f.png?version=4bc860759dd1a

 

Warlock remains unmoved in the number 1 spot. Despite Zoo slightly diminishing in Power this week, it still remains undoubtedly one of the strongest decks in the game. The decrease in power has also been offset by the rise of Handlock to counter the increased numbers of Control decks.
 

 

2. Hunter

 

250px-Rexxar-f.png?version=3f80009401aa5

 

Although Zoo and Hunter retain the 1 and 2 spot this week, the gap between them and the rest of the field has narrowed significantly. Hunter is still included this high due to its ability to beat anything given the right draw. If the Control decks start to get into an arms race to see who can out-late-game the others, then Hunter will be right here to punish them for their greed.
 

 

3. Shaman

 

250px-Thrall-f.png?version=55cd557d01b07

 

Shaman sees a big boost this week. The best periods for Shaman tend to be transitional periods in the meta where there is a decent mix of Aggro and Control since Shaman is a strong deck vs the field with almost no terrible matchups. The strength of Shaman in countering two of the most common control decks in Warrior and Handlock is also taken under consideration, as is the reduction of anti-weapon cards such as Harrison Jones. This power will probably be short lived however, as eventually, the meta tends to skew in one direction or the other and leave Shaman behind.

 

 

4. Warrior

 

250px-Garrosh_Hellscream-f.png?version=a

 

Warrior gets a boost this week as the meta is now much more favourable for its style. As mentioned before with most Hunters now favouring the Face Rush build and cutting Hunter's Mark, the potential for Warrior to outlast them and shut the game down with Ragnaros is extremely high. Warrior also comfortably holds its own in other Control matchups although it suffers against Handlock and the occasional Paladin.
 

 

=5. Druid

 

250px-Malfurion_Stormrage-f.png?version=

 

Druid also sees a big upswing this week. As mentioned previously the smooth curve Ramp decks with additional early game to counter Aggro are posting good results and the Lifecoach Miracle Druid is making a splash as well. Miracle Druid is posting particularly great results against Hunter and Zoo, whilst the Ramp, or Midrange lists are two of the worst matchups in the game for Warrior. The problem keeping Druid out of the top rankings still is there is no one build that has strong matchups against the field of other common decks.
 
 

=5. Rogue

 

 

250px-Valeera_Sanguinar-f.png?version=1f

 

Rogue takes a small hit this week. The decreased number of Zoos reduces its power, as does the increased number of Handlocks, which are a horrible matchup for just about any Miracle Rogue build. Priest being significantly weaker also hurts Rogue as that was another of their most powerful matchups. However, in a meta where Control starts to become more common, Rogue will always have a place. If given enough time to set up and draw cards, Rogue can and will beat anything.
 
 

7. Priest

 

250px-Anduin_Wrynn-f.png?version=dcf2a67

 

Priest is the biggest loser this week, dropping 4 whole places. Without an aggro dominated meta there is little reason to run Priest over other Control decks. Doing so simply means you just get outlasted and out late-gamed by the slower Control decks, like Warrior, Handlock and Paladin. If you do intend to run Priest, then Control Priest is probably preferred over Deathrattle Priest due to it's increased power in Control matchups.
 

8. Paladin

 

 

250px-Uther_Lightbringer-f.png?version=a

 

Paladin is given a small boost this week by the increased amount of Control in the Meta. Although still weak, it is enough to see it lifted off the bottom.
 
 

9. Mage

 

 

250px-Jaina_Proudmoore-f.png?version=8f6

 

 

Mage takes the bottom spot this week, not due to any particular weaknesses of the class, but since there is no Mage build that accomplishes a goal that isn't done better by other classes. The only unique and powerful Mage build available is Freeze Mage, and playing Freeze on ladder requires a very specific meta. This unfortunately is not it.

I would try Control Warrior with extra early game, 1 Whirlwind, 1 Cleave, 1 Unstable Ghoul, 1 Owl Something like that. If you don't have access to all the dust, then Zoo or Hunter are fine too. A more stable Midrangey list like the Hunter one listed is probably better than outright Aggro right now, and for Zoo you should be running Loatheb and Owl instead of Power Overwhelming and Void Terror in my opinion.

Sottle,do you think that this season has been the most difficult one so far? If so, what do you think that has made it so challenging?

Another question, will you be the one to update the arena sections in the future? Even though I can make my own choices most of the time, I sometimes search the internet for the best card choices. I actually think that Icy Veins is better than Trump's Arena Tier List. :O

Sorry for long post and possible mistakes with my grammar, heheh. ^^

I didn't feel like this season was notably more difficult, but I do think the standard of play and quality of decks on ladder has improved has time has gone on. There's a lot more resources now for people to see what the right builds are, a lot more genuine "top players" getting high numbers of stream viewers etc. So the knowledge base for players is really huge right now.

 

Regarding Arena, yes I believe I am tasked with revamping that as well. My priority right now is getting what I view to be the competitive decks done for every class, so far I have Warlock, Hunter, Rogue, Druid and Priest done. After that i'll move on to the Arena section as well as doing guides on some more funky, weird decks that aren't necessarily super competitive.

 

Sottle, what do you think about Miracle Druid? It's a good option for climb rank 5 to legend?

 

Yes! I think it's a great option. Strong results against Hunter and Zoo, decent in Control Matchups as well. One of my team mates on Infused actually took Miracle Druid to the biggest LAN in the UK recently, so we believe it to be a very strong deck. I have a guide up for it if you haven't noticed, it wasn't published when this article went live to be linked in the first post: https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/legendary-miracle-druid-naxx-deck

With Miracle Druid games were too long and some had just lost, I returned to the hunter and I'm rank 4, any idea about add specific cards to Hunter deck and climb legend at this time in EU?

      Doom in the Tomb is now live and the update comes with all-new 1,000 Win Portrait Rewards and 23 cards that are temporarily stepping out of Wild back into Standard. Note that the cards will remain in Standard until the next major update and exact end dates and times will be announced in the weeks ahead.

      A new Hearthstone update has just arrived, featuring the “Doom in the Tomb” Hallow’s End event, Wild cards temporarily returning to Standard, portrait rewards for dedicated Hearthstone players, and much more!
      New Event - Doom in the Tomb!

      Pack your torches and latch your helmets, Heroes. The Headless Horseman has infiltrated Uldum’s deserted desert tombs, outfitted himself with powerful relics, and has set his sights on besting the battling Leagues! The new Doom in the Tomb event starts today, October 8, and will last until October 30. Here’s what’s in store:

      Week 1: Doom in the Tomb, Part 1
      Gear up with your favorite member from the League of E.V.I.L and delve into the Haunted Temple, full of the baddest bosses in Uldum! The clock is running, too – race to set the record for the fastest Temple run! Rewards Complete a run in under 1 hour and earn a Rastakhan’s Rumble Card Pack. Complete a run in under 40 minutes to earn a Golden Common Ancient Mysteries!
      Week 2: Doom in the Tomb, Part 2
      E.V.I.L has their turn, and now it’s up to Reno and the League of Explorers to join the run and flex their Temple diving speed. New enemies and challenges await!

      Rewards Complete a run in under 1 hour and receive a Golden Common Temple Berserker Complete a run in under 40 minutes to earn a Golden Rare Generous Mummy
      Week 3: The Haunted Carousel
      Get ready for the big mix-up! In this Tavern Brawl, you’ll need to strategize around minions constantly rotating board positions – all while controlling the Horseman’s time-shifted Dreadsteeds!

      Rewards Summon 100 Dreadsteeds to earn a Rise of Shadows Card Pack Dual-Class Heroes

      The Dual-Class Arena Hallow’s Eve dress-up party is back! When you start an Arena run during the Doom in the Tomb event, you’ll choose a Hero, then a Hero Power, and card offerings will feature cards from BOTH of those classes, in addition to neutral cards.
      Players who have an active Arena run when this begins will have their current run ended and will receive an Arena Ticket as compensation. To ensure that players have a chance to try out this devilish dual-class deck-building dress-up party, anyone who logs in during each of the first two weeks will receive one Arena Ticket per week! This event coincides with our normal Arena rotation. The new Arena sets in rotation are as follows: Curse of Naxxramas Goblins vs. Gnomes Blackrock Mountain The Grand Tournament League of Explorers Whispers of the Old Gods One Night in Karazhan Mean Streets of Gadgetzan Journey to Un'Goro Knights of the Frozen Throne Kobolds & Catacombs Hex & Flex Bundles

      Hex Bundle
      If you thought the League of E.V.I.L. was securely under wraps, think again! Arch-Villain Rafaam has leveraged his lackeys and put together the Hex Bundle, 20 Rise of Shadows card packs and a random Rise of Shadows Legendary card at the discounted price of $19.99 USD. Flex Bundle
      Reno’s vest just doesn’t have room for bulging biceps AND stacks of card packs. That’s why he’s whipped together the Flex Bundle! Get 20 Saviors of Uldum packs and a random Saviors of Uldum Legendary card at the discounted price of $19.99 USD. Standard Shake-Up

      Starting with today’s patch and lasting until our next major update, 23 cards from across Hearthstone history are temporarily stepping out of Wild and back into Standard. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get straight into the action. These cards will be considered "event" cards, which essentially means that they're temporary copies and not permanent additions to your collection. Even if you already own the cards you'll still receive these event copies, and when the event ends they'll disappear.
      IMPORTANT NOTE: While these cards were re-introduced during the Doom in the Tomb event, they will remain in Standard past the event's conclusion, until the launch of our next major update. More details will be shared, including exact end dates and times, in the coming weeks.
      Card List: Druid: Astral Communion Kun the Forgotten King Mage: Babbling Book Flamewaker Paladin: Mysterious Challenger Avenge Hunter: Lock and Load Call of the Wild Shaman: Evolve Thing from Below Rogue: Shaku, the Collector Swashburglar Priest: Lightbomb Vol'jin Warlock: Imp Gang Boss Renounce Darkness Warrior: Varian Wrynn Bloodhoof Brave Neutral: N'Zoth, the Corruptor Sylvanas Windrunner Ragnaros the Firelord The Curator Emperor Thaurissan 1,000 Win Portrait Rewards

      The time has come for dedicated Hearthstone players to flex their Hero mastery! We’re introducing new portraits earned by achieving 1,000 Ranked or Arena wins with each class. Wins earned before this update goes live will retroactively count towards these totals.

      Blizzard today announced a new event coming to the game on October 8. It's called Doom in the Tomb. Check out what's in store for Hearthstone this month!
      UPDATE
      Placeholder for tweet 1180177096972222464 Blizzard (Source)
      Legends have told of dangers lurking within the Haunted Temple of Uldum and the grand ancient treasures they conceal. Of course, “treasure” was all anyone had to mention to get Reno and Rafaam on board, and now their sights are set on acquiring the temple’s powerful artifacts for their own campaigns!
      It won’t be an easy task, though. While our Heroes and Villains battle to push deeper through the Haunted Temple, the Headless Horseman has resorted to a nefarious contingency and opened a sealed sarcophagus full of WILD terrors. Now it will be up to you to aid the conquests of good, or E.V.I.L, in a race to uncover the tomb’s precious secrets and escape the doom in the tomb!

      Step into the Haunted Tomb
      The spooky spelunking adventures begin at 10:00 AM PT on October 8 and end at 9:00 AM PT on October 30 – three weeks packed full of new activities to participate in:

      Today we get a look at some of the smaller stuff coming up in Hearthstone's future, including new events like dual-class arenas, 23 old cards returning to standard (Ragnaros and N'zoth were mentioned), new class portraits for 1000 wins, and plenty of quality of life improvements!
      Behind the Doors (source)
      While we’re constantly recruiting lackeys, tinkering with experimental tech, and delving into dusty tombs to bring you new Hearthstone expansions and Adventures, we’re also hard at work on some awesome, albeit less flashy, new stuff. In this blog we’ll shine a light on some of the smaller, but still exciting new features, events, and changes coming to Hearthstone in the near future.

       
      Adding More Events

      After the overwhelmingly positive response to the recent Fire Fest-E.V.I.L. event, we’re looking for more opportunities to introduce even more large-scale in-game events with rewards, themed Tavern Brawls, and changes that could temporarily (or permanently!) create fun new Hearthstone experiences for players.
      We’re starting off with a new event in just a couple weeks featuring Dungeon Run-inspired Tavern Brawls, dual-class Arenas, Legendary quest rewards, and some meta-shifting changes outlined in the “Shaking up Standard Play” section below.
      We’ll have more to share on this sensationally spooky event on October 4, but in the meantime . . . try not to lose your head!
       

      Shaking up Standard Play

      Now that the Saviors of Uldum Standard ladder experience has solidified, we think it’s a great time to throw a wrench or two (or twenty-three) in the gears. We’re going to be pulling some of the most popular and game-changing cards from across Hearthstone history, including
      Ragnaros the Firelord and N'Zoth, the Corruptor, out of Wild and dropping them back into Standard for a limited time. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get them into the action.
      We’ll be sharing more details (including the full list of 23 cards) in a blog update on October 4. Stay tuned!

      1,000 Win Class Portraits
      Looking ahead, we want to continue celebrating personal successes and milestones for all you dedicated Hearthstone players. Our next major update will introduce some really cool new portraits that you can earn by earning 1,000 wins with each class. Wins earned before this update goes live will retroactively count towards these totals. Take a look at a couple of examples below and start stacking up those wins!



      Quality of Life Improvements
       
      Alternate Search Terms
      We want it to be easier to quickly find the cards you’re looking for while deckbuilding, so we’re adding alternate search terms for some hard-to-type cards. We’ll be adding common misspellings and simplified versions of leetspeak card names (found on some Mech minions). For example, searching “snip” or “snap” will now show you SN1P-SN4P. While this feature will only be enabled for a few commonly misspelled cards at first, we’ll be able to add even more alternate search terms as needed.
      This feature will also support languages other than English. For example, SN1P-SN4P in Latin American Spanish is “CL1C-CL4C”, so searching “clic” would return the expected results. Quest Changes
      While not included in our next major update, here’s a preview of some of the changes we’re making to quests a little further down the line.
      We’re cutting some of the less popular daily quests and tuning down some of their requirements to make them quicker and easier to complete. We’ll also be adding some new quests to the pool to mix things up! We split most daily quests into two buckets: Easy (50g) and Slightly More Difficult (60g). Rerolling a Slightly More Difficult (60g) quest (like Play 10 Beasts) always gives you an Easy (50g) quest, so players can be guaranteed to get an Easy quest every day if they want. We love  Murlocs and Pirates as much as anyone, but it should be your choice if you decide to complete their quests.
      We’re excited to be bringing these new features, events, and other changes to Hearthstone soon. Please let us know what you think on social media or the official Hearthstone forums. Until then, we’ll see you in the Tavern!
