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.

Muster for Battle is missing.

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)

Murloc Knight should for sure be better than that though, I think that card took nearly everyone by surprise, i'll update soon.

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.

      Card reveal for Knights of the Frozen Throne continues with Blood Razor, a neutral Legendary and Prince Taldaram.
      If you missed previous reveals or need information about the latest Hearthstone expansion, you can find them in our hub.
      Warrior's Blood Razor
      The new Warrior card has been revealed via The Legend of Slag. The card makes King Mosh good and battlecry & deathrattle effects make it a flexible choice for many Warrior cards.

      Prince Taldaram
      This is a new neutral Legendary card, revealed exclusively on Hearthpwn. Possible synergies are Malygos, Leeroy Jenkins or Prophet Velen.

      Blood-Queen Lanathel is a new legendary Warlock card that was just revealed via PCGamesN.
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out here.
      Warlock's Blood-Queen Lana'thel
      The new Legendary Warlock card synergizes with Cruel Dinomancer and cards like Doomguard, Soulfire up to Malchezaar's Imp & Silverware Golem. It doesn't even have Charge and due to ist high mana cost it cannot be deployed early.

      Two more cards from Knights of the Frozen expansion were revealed and Blizzard communicated why there was just a single card reveal before that. The cards are Ice Breaker and Plague Scientist.
      Three card reveals were scheduled for today and the reveal for the second and third card was delayed and the reason is that those reveals were all with partners that couldn't make it happen today due to various reasons.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We originally had a few more card reveals for today, but the card reveals were all with partners and they unfortunately couldn't happen today due to a variety of issues. But good news! There will be two more card reveals tonight, so please look forward to them. There will also be more card reveals happening every day this week! The first card that was revealed is the Ticking Abomination and here are the next two:
      Shaman's Ice Breaker
      Ice Breaker will synergize well with Frost Shock and we'll have to see Freeze effects of other cards first to determine its usefulness and full potential. Ice Breaker will be good for minion removal combined with Glacial Shard. For now, the card looks better than Shatter.

      Picture is a courtesy of Hearthpwn
      Rogue's Plague Scientist
      Provides Rogues with much needed board clear (hard removal). Synergizes well with Tentacle of N'Zoth, Wild Pyromancer. On the other hand for Constructed, it competes with Vilespine Slayer and SI:7 Agent that both seem to be better choices.

      The first card since the initial annoucement for Knights of the Frozen Throne has been revealed by C4mlann earlier this morning.
      Let's take a look at the first KotFT card officially revealed by C4mlann.

       
      Blizzard kicks off the reveal with a card that seems unplayable in all currently popular decks, and subpar in arena. Although some players have suggested silence priest as a potential target, Ticking Abomination is actually detrimental to play without a form of silence in hand, unlike other popular silence targets. The caveat here is that since this is one the first card revealed, we don't actually know what's in store. Might there be a way to transfer Deathrattle effects to enemy minions? Will KotFT control decks play no minion before turn 5? One potential use for this one might lie in "forcing" your opponent to trigger your own Deathrattle effects with a high value card, but we'll have to wait and see. We might even see something that gives Deathrattle effects Lifesteal, the expansion's new mechanic, for some minion-based healing.
      For more information, please check out our guide to the new Hearthstone expansion.
