    Hello everyone! Don't know if anyone else has the same problem, but i always collect the majority of cards in each expansion, but i end up playing the same meta decks over and over. 

    I usually use HSreplay to find competitive decks, but i would like to know what sites you visit in order to find fun decks. I don't want to search for Tier 1 decks, but also not win 1 out of 10 games meme decks. I want something in the middle, like decks that differentiate from the Top decks and use some not so played cards, that can win if you play many games and learn how to pilot that deck.

    ''Lucky Dragon Casino Mage" that was shared in this site, is a good example. Relies too much on RNG to be reliable, but i love Mage and have good results with the deck without it being meta.

    Thank you for your suggestions.

    Always appreciate a fellow meme-seeker!

    In general, I think it would help to know where on the ladder you hope to play these decks.  For instance, I'm proof that with average skill you can navigate to Diamond 10 consistently with memes, but if you want to hit Diamond 5 or Legend it may take more skill or something closer to a Tier 2 or Tier 3 deck (or just a lot patience to grind with a 51% winrate).  Although I guess this also depends on how you define a "meme" deck as you can throw a few meme cards into a competitive archetype and still win a lot of games on the back of the meta cards alone.

    Back on topic, I feel like we gotta start with OOC's resources.

    • There's the meme series by BloodMeFist
    • And then there's the budget series by Sule which always includes ways to improve on the meme if you can afford epic and legendary cards
    • FrostyFeet also regularly compiles deck ideas for Wild as well as Standard decks built around specific cards (e.g. Vol'jin)
    • I'd also give a shout out to MarkMcKz who posts decks here and on other sites.  I've gotten inspiration from a number of his builds and they'll often have a YouTube video where you can hear his mulligan strategy and the like.
    • I'd also check out the deck search feature as you can specify an archetype or even specific cards that you want included.  For meme decks I'd probably filter by those that include guides so you can learn how to play them and there will sometimes be info on how successful they've found the deck to be against the meta.  To ensure you're seeing memes you could filter the Type by "Just for Fun" or "Theorycraft" although sticking to "Ranked" decks will give you ones that the author thinks are ladder-viable.

    As for other sites, back in the day I used to check HearthstoneTopDecks and it looks like it's still going strong.  You can search for decks uploaded based on Streamers who play fun but viable builds (e.g. Kibler) or you can filter something like Top Rated (Month) + Fun (Type) + Pro Players/Community Players to see what people have voted on as being fun and viable.

    Hmm, I just made a lengthy reply with a bunch of links but it showed up in a Red Box when I tried to post and then disappeared when I refreshed the page :(

    Not sure what happened, but in short (without links), check out BloodMeFist and Sule's articles on here + FrostyFeet for Wild ideas and compilations built around specific cards (e.g. Vol'jin).  I'd also look at the decks posted by MarkMcKz on here and Youtube.  For other sites, I used to check HearthstoneTopDecks and you can filter by top rated fun decks by pro players for viable off-meta builds.

    Our spam filter got angry, probably due to the amount of links. The post has now been restored.

    Ahh, sorry about that, never hit the limit before!  Thanks for restoring it and thanks for all of your articles :)

    I use this site called outof.cards, it has some pretty cool meme decks. Would be nice if more people would submit theirs though ;) besides that, Chump on youtube always has great meme decks. RegisKillbin also plays a bunch.
