The grand Hearthstone World Championship 2022 is slowly unfolding over this weekend as the fitting finale to the entire competitive esports year. It also marks the return to a larger tournament format with 16 best players fighting for the title, which in turn translates to an impressive number of 64 available decks - with notable similarities and differences all across the field. We've already put all of the lists into our database, so you can give them a try yourself or take a closer look and share your observations with us.
Most notably, the newest Death Knight addition is entirely missing from the competition (just like 4 other classes, to be fair). Even though there was a special rule in place for this edition of Worlds that prevented Death Knight decks from ever being banned, no competitor has deemed the option as worthwhile. 40-card decklists are still with us, courtesy of Prince Renathal; although the latest balance mini-patch has turned most everyone away from including Sire Denathrius (or bringing Hunter, for that matter).
You can decide how expected or surprising some of these choices are - just remember, tournament lineups follow their own set of rules and are best viewed as a cohesive unit!
All Player Decks & Lineups - Hearthstone World Championship 2022
In total, we've got:
- 16 Rogues - XL Thief, Miracle, Deathrattle, plus a varied mix of options.
- 16 Priests - XL Quest and Control, with numerous Boon Priest types closing it out.
- 13 Demon Hunters - The Final Showdown Questline has made its grand return.
- 10 Druids - It's not all Ramp or Alignment; a couple of Aggro picks can be seen.
- 5 Mages - Ping variants, 40-card decks except for one.
- 4 Paladins - Most varied: a couple of Pure Paladins, Control, and Kazakusan!
- Any other classes are sitting this one out.
As for the new March of the Lich King cards? The expansion has definitely left a certain impact on the metagame, so we won't be making any jokes similar to last year's, when the older United in Stormwind completely outshone the newer Fractured in Alterac Valley.

Will Posesi be able to defend his current champion title? Will everyone live up to the hype? Are you disappointed not to see any Death Knights? Any decks or their pilots that stand out above the rest? Share your thoughts with us!
Those priest mirrors man, slowly eating those casters alive.
1 entire hour, 40 card list to fatigue. And the best part is that I only watched one of those things. Plenty more to come.
Excited to see the new class in action 🤣
Keeping with tradition, the winner of World's MUST have a Rogue deck 🤯
Oh, yes. Even as Edwin might not be around, there must always be some form of strong Rogue represented.
