Post Nerfs Meta Decks - Wild Format - With Decklists!




Post Nerfs WILD Meta Decks

The meta is a nebulous, ever changing thing, that differs from region to region and from rank to rank. Despite that, we still know generally speaking what are good decks and what are the less good decks.

We tried to round up the best WILD ladder decks for you in this post, though obviously these are not the only good decks, nor are they the best at every point in the ladder. It all depends on what you play against as well.

Here's what we have:


Secret Mage

As dire as the situation is for Mage in Standard, it's the exact opposite in Wild, where Secret Mage has a host of different builds, that all perform very well.

The deck relies on cheating out Secrets in various ways for no cost and then building a board as your opponent struggles to get anything going. It's anti aggro tools in new Saviors of Uldum cards Arcane Flakmage and Flame Ward is too much for Aggro and it's Tempo is too much for slower decks.

Mech Hunter

Mech Hunter has both the aggression to start and the longevity to go into the mid range to make for a formidable deck. It mostly relies on getting board and going face, trading where necessary to continue board domination.

Mech Hunter is one of the reasons many Wild decks are teching in Silences, because through their Magnetic effects, they can quickly become devastating.

Mech Paladin

You might think "Boring, we just did a Mech deck" but that would be jumping to conclusions quite a bit. Not all Mech decks are created equal. Mech Paladin is a very different approach then Mech Hunter.

Mech Paladin uses card discounting and hand buffing to succeed, bringing out bigger minions from the start, even before magnetizing them. Mech Paladin is another reason to tech in a Silence if you have the room for it.

Odd Rogue

It's an aggressive meta in Wild, and Odd Rogue decks are right there in it too. Most Odd Rogues will feature a Pirate package, with Patches the Pirate and Southsea Captain among others as part of that aggression.

Odd Rogue has some built in versatility too, often running Vilespine Slayer and old favorite Loatheb as well as sometimes including Violet Illusionist to help against taking damage.

Even Shaman

Even Shaman has more or less pushed out any other pure mid range decks. It was already a good and popular deck and then Saviors of Uldum gave it Vessina as an Even card to add.

Between a constant stream of cheap Totems, the ability to easily Overload for free with Zap! and various high quality mid range Minions, it's hard to keep up with Shaman.

Odd Paladin

From Odd, to Even, and now back to Odd. Odd Paladin that is. A deck that ruled the Standard meta for ages and has found just as much success in Wild, it's got the same basic build it has always had

The differences between the various Odd Paladin decks these days are mostly down to tech choices. Do you include an Ironbeak Owl, do you include Loatheb etc. etc. They are not huge changes, but then why would you change a winning formula?

Big Priest

Big Priest. The final boss. The gatekeeper. If your deck is unable to beat this deck, it is unlikely to get anywhere in Wild. You would think that the Barnes nerf would have stifled it, but much like the Dr. Boom nerf in Standard, it has just slowed the deck down.

The fact it is now slower and less likely to start throwing Big minions at you early has opened the door for aggressive decks however and they are getting past Big Priest decks more easily than they used to. So, rejoice, if you hate Big Priest there's now plenty of decks that fight against it with a lot of success.
