This is the /r/WildHearthstone Wild Meta TierList. This TierList is modeled after some of the other meta snapshots, but for the wild format of Hearthstone. We feel that having a wild snapshot would be beneficial for anyone interested in playing wild, whether it be someone trying to get #1 Wild legend, or someone trying wild for their first time. So without further ado.
This wild snapshot has been put together by some Wild Expert players who consistently hit top legend in wild, and have a feel on the Meta and how it changes. They have consulted with other wild legend players and using their combined experience have constructed a tier list of which decks are doing the best in the current meta.
With all the talk going on in the Hearthstone community about Meta Reports, we would like to put out a brief disclaimer before continuing. We at /r/WildHearthstone have created this Meta Snapshot as a tool for those who are interested in the wild format and we have created it to the best of our abilities. Our tier list is based off of what we believe is the optimal version of each list. However, there are many ways to build a deck, and example decklists may not line up exactly with the archetype descriptions.
Welcome back to our /r/WildHearthstone TierList! In the past, the wild metagame had been mostly similar to the standard one albeit a few changes. At this point in time the Wild metagame is vastly different than the standard one due to the fact that ~30% of the available card pool is exclusive to wild. Ever since the Un’goro expansion came out earlier this month, the meta has been in flux. Everyone has been trying out different variations of old and new decks, and the overall power level of Un’goro has allowed for a pretty significant shake up in the best versions of the decks available in wild.
With the addition of this expansion it quickly became clear that Pirate Warrior is still the top dog in Wild. Ships cannon keeps the meta in check, preventing the really greedy deck from flooding the ladder. Luckily, Wild has many more support tools than standard at warding off aggro such as sludge belcher and antique healbot, which keeps this deck from staying too far ahead. Additionally in tier 1 we see our old friend Reno in his prime in the Renolock deck. This deck has the versatility to be able to hold off pirate warrior a sufficient amount of the time, while being able to go toe to toe against other control style decks. We also see that egg druid has finally gotten up to tier 1 in this meta. With a fast start, this deck farms pirate warrior, but is a bit weak to decks that run a lot of AOE.
In tier 2, we have some decks that look completely different than their standard counterparts (if standard even has a version of it). The decks that are at the top of the tier consist of Control Shaman, Reno Mage, Aggro Shaman, Control Warrior, and Flood Paladin. These are all very strong decks, and when teched properly can slice through the meta.
Reflecting back on the previous TierList, we feel that Wild has now grown into its own exclusive meta, and is not just a shadow of the standard format. Wild has started to finally become fully “WILD”! We are all looking forward to what the upcoming month will bring, especially with the new race to top 64 legend that blizzard has hinted about.
If you missed it, in the full album there are some write-ups of each deck on the tierlist giving a brief description of the deck, and how it has fared this month in the meta.
We would like to give a big thanks to our team of Wild Experts who put this tierlist together.
Finally, we really enjoyed your feedback from our last TierList. If you have any questions, comments or criticism, we would love to hear it in our comment section below. Thank you to everyone that helped us along the way.
