Greetings everyone, and welcome back to yet another Duels meta report!
It's been a while since the last time we posted one of these, and we hope you'll enjoy the new lists we were able to round up.
Here below you'll find a varied selection of Duels starting archetypes to build around during your run - all of them were brought all the way to 12 wins by their respective creators, so you know for sure that they have some potential - have fun!
VillalobosChamp's Token Demon Hunter
Time passes, but Illidari Strike is still a damn good Hero Power - nothing to do about it. Forged in the Barrens gave Star Student Stelina a handful of new option to improve the archetype's performances overall: Far Watch Post (even though it got it in the recent nerf patch) slows down your opponent's deck, Venomous Scorpid is pretty much another neutral card with some value attached to it and Hog Rancher is just cute, so don't even dare to question it.
Susteve3's Deathrattle Hunter
An already established archetypes gets significantly improve by some addition thanks to the Barrens. While Piercing Shot is arguably a better and universal Kill Command, Burning Blade Acolyte is insane in combination with Death Games: you play a 1/1 with a big body behind, so your opponent doesn't really want to "pop" it and deal with the 5/8; however, if left unchecked you'll be able to go ham with it!
sarantini's Quest Mage
This is a 12-er deck put together by one of our community members. Long story short, you want to combine Embercaster's effect with Open the Waygate's Time Warp to generate multiple turns in a row and therefore win the game.
If you want to know more about this deck and how to play it, sarantini wrote a wonderful guide on the deck page, so you should definitely go there and check it!
Roda's Dude Dragon Paladin
Humble Blessings is good, very good, especially if you fill your deck with big hitters like Alexstrasza, Onyxia the Broodmother and so on. Definitely a polarizing treasure you'd want to play rather than play against.
Disruptor108's Elemental Shaman
In a rather slow Duels meta, the best thing you can do is taking an offensive stance and punishing your greedy opponents with sheer damage to their face. If this is your goal, then Disruptor108's Elemental Shaman is definitely your jam!
ultrarotom's Bomb C'thun Warrior
Talking about a slow meta, nothing describes it better than a Control Warrior with lots of armor gaining effects, a rain of Bombs and the OG C'Thun. If you like boring your opponent to death and want to farm lots of exp, then you should give this deck a spin.
