Bored of ladder, but still want to try out some of the new cards? Don't worry, balance changes are coming soon and we have exactly what you need for a couple days of alternative enjoyment!
For this occasion, we've rounded up a bunch of deck: underplayed archetypes, memes and possible metabeakers: you've got quite the mixed bag here, and we're sure you'll be able to find something you'll love jamming on ladder!
Modmassacre's Deathrattle Demon Hunter
One of the fan favorite archetypes during the reveal season: even though Deathrattles are more of a Rexxar thing, Deathrattle Demon Hunter had all the premises to be a fun (and maybe even competitive) list. However, the top dogs of Barrens leave little to no room to breathe: Devolving Missiles and Libram of Hope are quite the hindrances for this deck.
However, Death Speaker Blackthorn is too good of a card to pass on: even if the archetype isn't great right now, we're still talking about a 7 mana 20/20-ish swing that can't be ignored. There's definitely potential here.
P. S.: Check the deck for a quite interesting guide written by the player himself.
By far the least "meme" and the most performing deck on this list. In a meta where you can't really take on slow matches, killing your opponent through sheer damage before they do their degenerate plays is a solid way to to take home some wins.
Warsong Wrangler into Trampling Rhino is a 5-star combo that grants a solid curve and consistent damage output; Piercing Shot is a great replacement to Kill Command and Barak Kodobane is incredible good at drawing Quick Shot, Olgra, Mankrik's Wife and one of your good 1-Cost spells. This time, going face might be the very needed answer.
LtLabcoat's Hero Tower Mage
Another archetype people were really hyped about. Back in Rastakhan's Rumble, Jan'alai, the Dragonhawk, Pyromaniac and Daring Fire-Eater were enough (combined with Baku the Mooneater) to push Odd Mage on ladder. However, this time Deck of Lunacy No Minion Mage is too good and too consistent to explore something else in the class.
If you're still interested in enjoying a "fair" Mage, this list features a small core of Hero Power cards together with lots of tutors (Taelan Fordring and Starscryer above all), cycle and overall good cards like Jandice Barov and Alexstrasza the Life-Binder for more burn damage.
Zetalot's N'Zoth Priest
The Priest master is back at it with another of his wonderful creations. This time, Zetalot hit legend with this list, featuring the usual control core in Sethekk Veilweaver, Soul Mirror, Mindrender Illucia and Shadow Word: Death. But that's not all: the Lightshower Elemental is basically a +14 health to your hero that can act as a win condition against Rogue's aggression and can be brought back with N'Zoth, God of the Deep. Finally, Xyrella and Condemn (Rank 1) are new and (unsurprisingly) very good cards you'll want to include in your future Priest builds.
Ike's N'Zoth Shaman
Ike never ever disappoints with his crazy creations. This list features lots of healing (Tidal Surge is a solid option, and Mo'arg Artificer + Tidal Wave is expensive but is going to make you... *cough*... rich!) and transform effects (Lilypad Lurker and, possibly,Instructor Fireheart's large pool).
Moreover, you have N'Zoth, God of the Deep for a late game turn swing Al'Akir the Windlord into Diligent Notetaker into double Ysera the Dreamer's Nightmare for a surprise 22 damage to the face.
RegisKillbin's Big PP Shaman
Regis is a genius and an absolute madman, full stop.
Warrior is clearly the loser of the first Barrens meta: Garrosh received lots of good cards, but the current top dogs make it so they can't really leave the mark. Things will probably change soon though: we're not saying that Warrior will become tier 1, but at least the class should be able to have some breathing room and see some experimentation.
In the meantime, let's enjoy some push-ups together!
