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.

      The Americas Region HCT Spring Playoffs will take place over the weekend of 27-28 May 2017.
      The HCT Spring playoffs for the Europe region was completed last weekend, with Hoej, Kolento, Neirea, and Rdu qualifying for the Global Championship next month.
      This weekend is the turn of the Americas region, and the reaction last week is that many players have submitted very greedy control decks in their lists. The players who have submitted the greediest lists will be well placed in the control mirror matches, but those same players will need to dodge the handful of Aggro lineups that are out there.
      To find out if your favourite player has qualified, you can check the standings here. The top 64 and ties made it to the main event, along with 8 Tavern Heroes. The event can be seen on the official Twitch channel from 8am PDT on Day One and 9am PDT on Day Two.

      A new mini-series of funny shorts has started, and we already have 2 episodes out! Mulligans sees an ordinary guy complete the quests that everyday life throws his way with the help of some unusual friends: Uther, Jaina, and Gul’dan. See them battle printer problems and who gets to ride shotgun in the first two episodes:

      The Europe Spring Playoffs and Championship took place over the weekend of May 20-21, which decided not only the new Europe Champion, but also the four players who would represent Europe at the Global Spring Championship in Shanghai next month.
      After seven rounds of Swiss, the top eight players cut to a knockout phase. The results of which were as follows:
        Hoej beat   FibEli3
        Neirea beat   INER
        Rdu beat   Casie
        Kolento beat   StanCifka
      This means that Hoej, Neirea, Rdu, and Kolento will represent Europe in the Global Championship. The top eight being so strong is a sign that the metagame is in a healthy place. All of the players were already known to be among the best in Europe, and despite their lineups differing substantially, they were still able to make it through.
      Hoej went on to take the title, beating Kolento 3-0 in the final. Hoej has been touted as one of the best players in Europe for some time, but traditionally has brought Control decks to major events. This time around, he brought a very aggressive lineup, and was rewarded for his willingness to adapt his style to the meta.
      The deck archetypes that each player brought to the event are listed below:
      Hoej: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
      Kolento: Jade Druid, Midrange Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Neirea: Jade Druid, Discover Mage, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Rdu: Aggro Druid, Face Hunter, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      The next four players to qualify for the Global Championship will be decided next week, with the Americas Spring Championships.

      The Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) European Spring Playoffs will take place this weekend, 20-21 May 2017.
      This will be the first playoff event since Journey to Un'Goro was released, and so if anyone has saved any surprise deck tech, this is the event where it will be revealed.
      The top 64 point earners, and ties, from the EU server will be joined by 8 Tavern Hero tournament qualifiers for the event, which will be played in esports bars across Europe. If you want to attend one of the events to cheer on your local favourite, the list of locations can be found here. There will be side events for anyone wishing to attend, with Blizzard prizes available for winners, and the Power Core cardback for all attendees.
      The point standings, showing the top 64, can be found here. As usual the event is stacked with many of the big names from the region. The top four will advance to the HCT Spring Global finals next month.
