Why is antique heal bot so low but the pala healer so high tiered?

Because in arena the stats are more important, than the healing output: Guardian of kings 7 mana 5/6 vs Heal Bot 5 mana 3/3

Where would muster, quartermaster, and aldor peacekeeper fit in here?

They are already in the table.

Blood Sailor slightly underrated(should be above average at least, probably good)

mad scientist is underrated.

dread corsair is super underrated. Terrible? WTF? that's one of the better choices for paladin.

By Blood Sailor, I assume, you mean Bloodsail Raier. Whic get to the good category only, if you already have a weapon. However, without a weapon in your deck, that card is just a 2-3 and there are many better two drops stat-wise.

 

Mad Scientist is only amazing if you already have a secret in your deck, otherwise it's terrible stats.

 

Dread corsair again.. IF you have a weapon, it's ok, otherwise it's jsut going to be a 4 mana 3-3 which is Terrible!

 

Maybe you should also check this topic about how to use and interpret the spreadsheets: http://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/arena-tier-lists

Just to add more clarity to the latter two.

Mad Scientist is weakest in Paladin out of all of the classes that have secrets. It cheats out the least Mana for you, since the Secrets cost 1, and the Paladin secrets are on the whole, pretty weak.

Dread Corsair is great in a deck that has 3+ Truesilvers, but otherwise, weapons like Light's Justice or Sword of Justice just turn it into an Ironfur Grizzly, which is reasonably weak card anyway. Not to mention that you must draw it on one of those turns that you have a weapon equipped, or have it sat dead in your hand until you draw a weapon.

Because it's a 3 mana 2/3. You are very unlikely to get value out of it Arena in terms of it buffing a bunch of 1 attack dudes. Not to mention that 1 attack dudes are generally bad cards as well, so you're forced to fill your deck even further with garbage in the hope that you get the dream draw.

Why is enhance-o-mechano so low? And why is sea giant so high? Maybe my matches are from bizzaroland but I have always done better with enhance than sea giant

Sea Giant has synergy with Paladin's hero power, allowing you to play Sea Giant earlier than with any other class.

 

Enhance-o-Mechano relies on you having somewhat strong minions on board. Having multiple minions on boards usually means that you are winning, making Enhance-o-Mechano a winmore card. In arena, you usually want to have cards that are good when you are behind and Enhance-o-Mechano definitely odes not fall into that category.

Just to add to the above, Sea Giant is great in Arena in every class. It's very realistic to expect to be able to play it for 6-7 Mana, if not even better than that, which makes it an insane card.

Love these tier lists (said it before, but I'll say it again)

I'm not locating Murloc Knight in your common listing nor Cobalt Guardian in the rare listing. Am I missing something?

Murloc Knight is Tier 4 (Above Average) and Cobalt Guardian is Tier 7 (Bad)

Why after playing Arena over 20 times, I have not gotten mage once as a choice, yet 2 out of every 3 times I play paladin, I face a mage?  Doesn't seem very random to me

Actually, one in 3.3 thousand players don't get a certain class as a choice in 20 arena runs. You either were unlucky, or you are simply exaggerating.

      Dave Kosak introduces us to the Monster Hunt, which will be available in a week.
      The Lead Mission Designer was joined by two of his associates to discuss the newest PvE mode, which will come along with The Witchwood. Paul Nguyen talked about the four heroes. Tess Greymane has a Hero Power that lets her Discover any class card that has been played in a game (by both players) and add it to your hand.
      Darius Crowley has an indestructible cannon minion that can be activated via Darius' Hero Power and fire at the minions across it. Positioning will matter, as you can kill two enemy minions at once and the Hero Power will refresh each time you kill a minion with your cannon. There weren't any details on Houndmaster Shaw or Toki, Time-Tinker, but it was hinted that the former hero will have something to do with Rush (just like its card counterpart).
      Giovanni Scarpati discussed bosses and treasures. The Monster Hunt will feature over 45 unique boss encounters. As Ben Brode had revealed in an earlier interview, each hero will have its own final boss, called "nemesis fight". For Crowley it's Lord Godfrey, for Shaw it's Glinda Crowskin and for Toki it's her own future self! When you clear the Monster Hunt with all four heroes (and win four packs), you get to face Hagatha as the last boss. Ultimately, as far as the treasures are concerned, there are a few returning ones from the Dungeon Run, but most are new. There are also hero exclusive treasures, as well as unique treasures "dropping" from rare boss encounters.
      You should definitely watch the video to get a glimpse of all the new stuff coming with the Monster Hunt. And don't forget: it's release date is April 26 at 10:00 am PDT!

      Start stocking up on vials of holy water and cannonballs, because The Witchwood’s free, single-player missions, the Monster Hunt, goes live on April 26 at 10:00 a.m. PDT!
      Join Lead Mission Designer Dave Kosak, along with Mission Designers Paul Nguyen and Giovanni Scarpati, for a Hearthside Chat that will equip you with everything you need to know for a successful Monster Hunt!
      Ready for Action
      If you played the Dungeon Run in Kobolds & Catacombs, the Monster Hunt will be eerily familiar—but much is different! Rather than choosing one of Hearthstone’s nine classes, you’ll take on the role of one of four veteran monster hunters, each with a special ability that you’ll need to make the most of if you hope to survive the hunt.
      Your hunter will venture deep into the Witchwood on Hagatha’s trail, defeating a series of monstrous bosses who dare to cross your path. With each victory, you’ll build a stronger and stronger deck with the items you find. You may encounter some trusty old equipment out in the forest, but much of what you’ll find will be entirely new, including treasures unique to certain foes. Each monster hunter has their own favorite tricks—a special hero power or ability that you’ll need to master if you hope to survive the hunt. Each hunter also carries a grudge against a heinous nemesis in the woods: a unique boss that only they can track down to fight.

      You’ll want to go on a Monster Hunt with every hunter, because each offers a quest that will earn you a Witchwood card pack. And if you’ve got the mettle to complete the Monster Hunt with all four hunters, you’ll finally have a chance to face off with the real witch in the woods: Hagatha! If you can free the wood from Hagatha’s curse, you’ll earn the gratitude of Gilneas and the Monster Hunter card back!

      We hope you enjoyed learning more of what lurks ahead in Monster Hunt! We’re eager to hear your tales of The Witchwood on social media using the #Witchwood hashtag. Learn more about The Witchwood at TheWitchwood.com!
      We’ll see you on the hunt!
