Hearthstone Battlegrounds Hero Tier List with Win Rates







Hearthstone Battlegrounds Hero Tier List with Win Rates

This is the Hearthstone Battlegrounds Hero Tier list, with all information powered by stats gathered with our Innkeeper app.

Below you will find all the active Battlegrounds Heroes and their Win percentage (How often did a Hero get 1st place), Pick percentage (How often was a Hero picked) and, new this week, their Average Rank (What rank did this Hero attain on average across all games). We have divided them up into Tiers based on their Win Percentage.

This list will be updated every few days so bookmark and check back if you want the lastest information. The current numbers are based on data since the Battlegrounds Hero changes from last week until today, Thursday the 28th of November.

By popular demand we limited the data to only from players at or above 5000 rating in Battlegrounds.

This does mean that the sample size is smaller, which means the accuracy of everything is less good than it was in the previous itteration. This has also lead to 1 quirk in the data: Pyramad. His Pick % is very low and so is his total number of games played (less than 100). This has thrown his other stats out of whack. We have decided to not rank him for this article. In the total data set, at all ranks, he ranks 19th in Win Percentage, 22nd in Pick % and 17th in Average Rank.

The Top Tier

The highest Win Percentage Heroes, 16.5% Win Rate and above.

Place and Name Win % Pick % Avg Rank
1. Patchwerk 16.71% 6.21% 3.742



Patchwerk's passive Hero Power reads "Start with 60 health instead of 40." This can be a powerful Hero Power when the extra health is used as a resource to survive bad streaks or to outlast opponents. He's also a safe Hero who reaches the Top 4 more often than not.


Place and Name Win % Pick % Avg Rank
2. Brann Bronzebeard 16.60% 8.51% 4.078



Brann Bronzebeard's passive Hero Power reads "After you play a Battlecry minion, give a random friendly minion +1/+1". This plays well with the many Battlecry minions in the game, across archetypes, and grows stronger in the late game when buffing existing minions becomes a priority.


The Contenders

Highly successful Heroes with a Win Percentage between 16.5% and 12.5%

Place and Name Win % Pick % Avg Rank
3. The Rat King 16.04% 7.18% 3.877



The Rat King's other Hero Powers: King of Mechs, King of Murlocs, King of Demons

All the Hero Powers of the Rat King work the same way. You just swap tribe every new turn. They read "Whenever you buy a *Beast/Murloc/Mech/Demon* give it +1/+2. Swaps type every turn.". They make for a powerful buff if you can make use of it at the time the correct type buff is active.


Place and Name Win % Pick % Avg Rank
4. Yogg-Saron, Hope's End 15.28% 6.80% 4.030



Yogg-Saron's Hero Power reads "Hire a random minion in Bob's Tavern and give it +1/+1." This makes for some definite randomness in the game, but if you can put the minions you get to use, it is a powerful Hero. Praise Yogg!


Place and Name Win % Pick % Avg Rank
5. Nefarian 14.35% 6.26% 4.398



Nefarian:'s Hero Power reads "At the start of next combat, deal 1 damage to all enemy minions." Nefarian is the natural counter to Divine Shield abundance in Battlegrounds as he removes them just as the combat phase starts.


Place and Name Win % Pick % Avg Rank
6. George the Fallen 14.29% 3.79% 4.929



George the Fallen's Hero Power reads "Give a friendly minion Divine Shield". This would probably be the runaway best Hero Power if it were not for it's 4 gold cost. As it stands it still is a powerful Hero Power if you use it on worthwhile minions, especially those that are impossible to give Divine Shield otherwise.


Place and Name Win % Pick % Avg Rank
7. The Curator 14.29% 7.51% 4.474



The Curator's passive Hero Power reads "Start the game with a 1/1 Amalgam that has all minion types." Having an extra, free Nightmare Amalgam in a smaller body can be a powerful thing when used with buffs and it fits any type of build you want to take your board.


Place and Name Win % Pick % Avg Rank
8. A.F. Kay 13.58% 7.77% 4.134



A.F. Kay's Hero Power is special. It reads "Skip your first 2 turns. Start with a minion from Tavern Tier 3 and 4." You are guaranteed to lose the first 2 turns, with nothing to show for it, but you then make up for it with the 2 minions you get for free. These are typically far more powerful minions than your opponent has at this point, more than making up for the 2 lost turns.


Place and Name Win % Pick % Avg Rank
9. Shudderwock 13.55% 3.41% 5.041



Shudderwock's Hero Power reads "Your next Battlecry this turn triggers twice" It allows you to double up on powerful Battlecries. This can come in a variety of ways, from buffs on various minions to increasing your Pogo-Hopper.


Place and Name Win % Pick % Avg Rank
10. The Great Akazamzarak 13.31% 2.42% 4.381



Akazamzarak's Hero Power reads "Discover a Secret. Put it into the battlefield" His secrets are very impactful and can make a significant difference in how your turn plays out. They also last between turns, adding to their value. Use this search filter to see which Secrets are available. There's something for every archetype!


Place and Name Win % Pick % Avg Rank
11. Elise Starseeker 12.84% 4.55% 4.446



Elise Starseeker's passive Hero Power reads "When you upgrade Bob's Tavern get a "Recruitment Map"." This recruitment lets you Discover a minion of the Tier you just upgraded to, but it costs 3 gold to use. This means you are at the mercy of RNG to give you a minion you can use, but you are guaranteed 3 minions from that tier to choose from which may not be the case on normal Tavern refresh.


The Middle Tier

The Heroes between good and bad, with a Win Percentage between 12,5% and 9%

Place and Name Win % Pick % Avg Rank
12. Bartendotron 12.21% 3.72% 4.641



Bartendotron's passive Hero Power reads "Reduce the cost of Tavern Tiers by (1)". This means that you can typically be 1 step ahead of others with upgrading your Tavern, giving you first access to more powerful minions. With a limited amount of minions in rotation that can make all the difference.


Place and Name Win % Pick % Avg Rank
13. Queen Wagtoggle 12.18% 1.72% 4.756



Queen Wagtoggle's Hero Power reads "Give a random friendly Mech, Demon, Murloc and Beast +1 Health." It is a cheap way to get more health on your minions, but it works better if you run a variety of minions or, more usually, some Nightmare Amalgams.


Place and Name Win % Pick % Avg Rank
14. Sindragosa 12.10% 4.90% 4.479



Sindragosa's Hero Power reads "At the end of your turn, Frozen minions get +1/+1." The mechanic refers to the act of freezing Minions in Bob's Tavern until your next turn, typically done when you have an available minion you want to purchase, but no gold left to do it.


Place and Name Win % Pick % Avg Rank
15. The Lich King 11.32% 2.77% 4.824



The Lich King's Hero Power reads "At the start of next combat, give your right most minion Reborn." It can be used in multiple creative ways: use it to get a Deathrattle to trigger twice, use it to protect an important minion from an untimely death. The down side is that the minions come back without buffs.


Place and Name Win % Pick % Avg Rank
16. Trade Prince Gallywix 10.10% 1.73% 5.005



Gallywix's Hero Power reads "Add a Gold Coin to your hand." This means you can use your Hero Power to save a gold you might not use right now till a later turn where it might be used to make an upgrade or purchase you would have otherwise not been able to. This efficiency can be powerful when used right.


Place and Name Win % Pick % Avg Rank
17. Dancin' Deryl 9.89% 5.56% 4.308



Dancin Deryl's Hero Power reads "After you sell a minion, randomly give two minions in Bob's Tavern +1/+1." The randomness of this Hero Power makes it tricky to use, and the further you get into late game the harder it gets to reliably hit the minion you would want. It's still a powerful effect when you are able to make use of it however.


Place and Name Win % Pick % Avg Rank
18. Professor Putricide 9.15% 1.24% 4.810



Professor Putricide's Hero Power reads "At the start of next combat, give your left-most minion +10 Attack." A powerful buff on cleave minions, but otherwise easily wasted on minions or absorbed by a Divine Shield.


The Lower Tier

The Heroes in the rear, with a Win Percentage lower than 9%

Place and Name Win % Pick % Avg Rank
19. Sir Finley Mrrgglton 8.46% 2.27% 4.908



Sir Finley Mrrgglton's Hero Power reads "Give a random friendly minion +1/+1. When you sell a minion, refresh this." A unique, multi-use Hero Power, where play order matters, just like it does in the card game at times.


Place and Name Win % Pick % Avg Rank
20. Ragnaros the Firelord 8.29% 1.89% 4.899



Ragnaros' Hero Power reads "At the start of next combat, deal 8 damage to two random enemy minions." For 2 gold cost this Hero Power is a random way to pop Divine Shields or snipe important minions hidden behind taunt. RNG needs to be at your side however.


Place and Name Win % Pick % Avg Rank
21. Infinite Toki 7.84% 3.23% 5.027



Toki's Hero Power reads "Refresh Bob's Tavern. Add a minion from a higher Tavern Tier." At a changed cost of 2 gold instead of 1, this is a more expensive refresh for Bob's Tavern that will guarantee the presence of 1 minion from a tier up from your current Tavern Tier. This can be powerful but at the now higher cost this is no longer the game breaker it used to be.


Place and Name Win % Pick % Avg Rank
22. Lord Jaraxxus 7.14% 2.56% 4.915



Lord Jaraxxus' Hero Power is one that works extremely well with the Demon tribe. It costs 2 gold to use and reads "Give your Demons +1/+1". This means that you can use this Hero Power to buff your demons, turn after turn, assuming you are building around Demons and have the gold to spare each turn.


Place and Name Win % Pick % Avg Rank
23. Patches the Pirate 6.35% 1.10% 4.960



Patches' Hero Power reads "At the start of next combat, deal 3 damage to two random enemy minions." It is basically the same idea as Ragnaros' Hero Power but cheaper and less prone to sniping important minions.


The Anomaly

With a Pick Percentage so low that it throws the other numbers out of whack.

Place and Name Win % Pick % Avg Rank
(No Rank) Pyramad 16.13% 0.81% 4.559



Pyramad's Hero Power reads "Give a random friendly minion +2 Health". This effect is useful when it can be used on the same set of minions, but the random nature makes this hard to do until the late game.
