    Back from long HS break, suggest a deck and tips how to get back in the new meta

    Hello,

    Back in the days i've played a decent amount of HS games, reached couple of times rank 1-2 but never legend and then i stopped.

    Now because of my work and not enough time to dedicate to other kind of games i thought of coming back and try to enjoy this game again, while doing ranked games...

    So i stopped shortly after Mean streets of Gadzetan was released and when i came yesterday i didnt even had idea it was so long and there's a lot of new expansions, that said most of my decks and cards i had are gone ( only Wild ) .

    Any suggestions where to start now, and some easy crafted decks so i can start getting back on track , i was surprised from all these new things like lifesteal etc etc ...

    Thanks for all the help

    As pointed out in another thread, Zayle, Shadow Cloak is technically a pretty solid way to start off.

    https://hearthstone.gamepedia.com/Zayle,_Shadow_Cloak

    It's a legendary that just gives you one of five pre-made decks, which are all rather decent themselves.


    You could also try sticking to Wild and see how far it goes, but the rest depends on if you have any preferences for classes and how much dust you have.

    Hearthpwn is still a solid source of information overall.

    Alternatively, you can craft Whizbang and use him for decks too. They're in no way Tier 1 or even Tier 2, but they will give you an idea of the fun of the latest expansion.

    Yeah there was a few mergers since Gadgetzan hah.

    As Stormbringer said Whizbang does basically the same thing too if you want but pulls from a larger variety (The deck recipe lists), so he might be more fickle.


    There has definitely been a lot since then though. Off the top of my head, there's

    Magnetic, which fuses mechs together combining their stats and effects.
    Overkill, which if the card does excess damage to kill a minion, will proc the effect.
    Rush, which replaced Charge basically, minion can attack as soon as played but only another minion.
    Twinspell, which when you play the spell will give you another copy of that spell to play (without twinspell).


    There's a lengthy list of them to glance over if you want here-

    Zayle is the single best catch up mechanic currently in the game. It'll give you a variety of competitive decks to play with and only costs $20, which will also end up netting you a number of card packs if you actually play the solo adventure. Since you're not overly familiar with the current mechanics I'd recommend doing a bit of research into how the various decks are meant to be played.

    token druid/zoo lock are cheap and retard proof, tempo rogue is slightly more expensive and slightly more retard proof, control warr is even more expensive and even more retard proof.

    pick one, play casually, hit rank 5, by then you'll understand the meta and how all the common decks work, easily grind legend with the deck you saw preforming the best, repeat on day 1 of june, stop playing hearthstone until july.

    Here's some more decks.

    great game for killing time.

    I know I'm going to get shit for this but.. I use hearthpwn low cost decks to get the ball rolling on current meta.. but that's because I'm a scrubknight so...

    If you're trying to go for Legend - I'm not your guy fam

    I think the best way to learn the meta is just crafting the best deck available and diving in. I'd go with something like...

    ### Bomb Warrior
    # Class: Warrior
    # Format: Standard
    # Year of the Dragon
    #
    # 2x (1) Eternium Rover
    # 2x (1) Omega Assembly
    # 2x (1) Shield Slam
    # 2x (1) Town Crier
    # 2x (2) Warpath
    # 2x (3) Augmented Elekk
    # 2x (3) Clockwork Goblin
    # 2x (3) Shield Block
    # 1x (3) SN1P-SN4P
    # 2x (4) Militia Commander
    # 2x (4) Omega Devastator
    # 2x (4) Wrenchcalibur
    # 2x (5) Brawl
    # 2x (5) Dyn-o-matic
    # 1x (5) Zilliax
    # 1x (7) Blastmaster Boom
    # 1x (7) Dr. Boom, Mad Genius

    # To use this deck, copy it to your clipboard and create a new deck in Hearthstone

    I've cut Archivist Elysiana from the list for a Sn1p-Sn4p to save on dust and because I don't believe she's a good ladder card.

    I play the deck almost like a tempo list. The curve supports it fairly well too. Get ahead, then get 'em dead.
