Hearthstone Ranked is Changing Forever! Play These Decks for End of Season Laddering

We're just a couple days away from the new ladder season and with it, a brand new way to play on the Hearthstone ladder. Before we get to the decks that are going to take you far though, let's recap what's happening with the ladder changes. 

  • Every rank of the ladder before Legend will have 5 star levels.
  • When the season ends, you drop down 4 ranks and keep the same star level.
  • No changes have been made to the win streak mechanic.
  • Rank floors (20, 15, 10, 5) are all still in place.

There's also changes to the rewards structure.

  • Card backs will now be earned after 5 wins for a month instead of by hitting rank 20.
  • Ranked rewards go by your highest ranked earned during the season.

If you missed the original announcement of the ranked play changes, you can find Ben Brode's video on that right here. Now, let's look at some great decks that you should take with you to the ladder for the end of the season.


Silver Hand or Murloc Paladin

There are two different Paladin flavours that are currently at the top of the ladder as far as win rates are concerned. The only question is, do you believe in the dudes or are you at one with the mrglgl?

Secret Mage

An old favourite brought back from the sorta-kinda-not-really-dead. It has some difficulty with Paladins and Spiteful decks, but if you aren't seeing much of that and you're lucky enough to have Aluneth, this is a fantastic pick and a personal favourite.

A small sample of players have found it to be solid against Paladins. Your mileage may vary.

Secret Hunter

It's a trap! Recently brought to us from a Blizzard blog post, this deck is performing exceptionally well provided you don't run into either of the Paladin decks we've featured. It also requires some niche cards which don't see much use elsewhere so we can't recommend crafting them if you're saving dust for the upcoming expansion.

Spiteful Priest

Another deck that isn't doing great if all you see is Paladin, but it's doing great otherwise. It should go without saying you want to mulligan away your high-cost spells to get your Spiteful Summoner value.

Cubelock

New no more! We've been playing around with Cubelock since Kobolds and Catacombs hit and it's still popular. This deck is the main reason why we're seeing a lot of Silence play through Spellbreaker and even the occasional Ironbeak Owl when budgets are tight.
