I am wandering if there are other players around that have the same feeling i have, concering classes in current arena setup.
Accoring to HSreplay Druid is number 3 class in win rate having only Hunter and Palading above. However, after taking enough arena runs with various classes (mostly Palading, Mage, Hunter and Druid) i can't see how can there be any other class that can make it better than Druid.
Druid has some extraordinary cards in its card pool that can simply devastate almost any other class.
The one that shines above all, at least to my opinion, is Emerald Explorer. It is a card that gives outrageous tempo and control. Needless to say that the fact that the chance to discover another Emerald Explorer while playing one are extremely high.
In addition to that if you have at least one Dragon Breeder in your arena deck value is huge.
Druid has the awesome cards to gain early board pressure in order to reach mid game when he starts taking full control of the game with lots of heavy taunts, dragons (with their synergies), and spells.
Whenever i face a Paladin either on 0-0 or on 5-0 the result is the same. They are getting heavily stomped.
Only decks i find resistance while playing druid are actualy Hunters and Warlocks and ofcourse other Druids.
Do you people experience the same thing?

Believe in potential; the multiverse blesses some beings with extraordinary traits, with the potential to do—to be—great things.
Druid seems to be super strong. Usually all druids I face after 2 wins have Embiggen on turn 1, which can get very nasty quickly if you can't smorc them down. Funnily enough I've never found embiggen myself when drafting, and drawing it on turn 1 seems like crazy luck is needed, but apparently not?
I haven't seen or tried a single warlock game, so I assume that is the worst class. Rogues are also super easy to beat usually always, so they are in the bottom in my opinion.
I have gotten most wins with a priest without any super op cards, so I'm saying that is the strongest. The value is just so high on most cards. And mind control makes people insta-concede usually.
Mage is also incredibly powerful. Very easy wins with that one, assuming I don't pick too many spells and never pick the cheap legendary that spawns 5/5s, unless the other choices are garbage.
Not sure about shaman. Haven't fought against any shamans ever, so I assume it's as bad as warlock.
