Friday Fun Decks! Week 5

Friday Fun Decks

What's better than after a long week of grinding things out at work, school or Ranked Ladder to kick back and relax with some Friday Fun Decks going into the weekend?

Well, we brought you a selection of decks to do just that. There's some standard decks, some wild decks, but most of all these are decks with interesting cards that haven't seen much use, Archetypes that have been forced out by better competition in the same class and combos that are often too unreliable to see play on the Ranked Ladder, but they are FUN. Truth be told though not everyone's idea of fun will be the same, so we cast a wide net and hopefully brought something for everyone.

Let's dive in!


Quest Beast Hunter

It always delights us when someone in the community makes an honest attempt to make a little used card or archetype work and then makes a good guide of their findings and how to play the deck. So kudos to user Julez_Nobelman.

They made a great guide on just how to get the best out of this Standard Quest Beast Hunter deck, and it's been a blast to play. Check it out!

Khartut Wall Druid

This Wild Druid deck caught our eye in the list of decks we were perusing, and we immediately saw the fun potential here. Using Hadronox and N'Zoth, the Corruptor to bring back Khartut Defender and The Lich King? That's some great shenanigans.

Then add to that the ability to bring back Hadronox with Witching Hour and the ability to copy all of the above with Faceless Manipulator and you have shenanigans on shenanigans. Just how we like it!

Trump Highlander Paladin

We wrote this week about how a good Highlander Paladin deck might still emerge, and well... This Standard deck tries to go against the current of Murloc and Quest Paladins and be something different, an actually successful Highlander Paladin deck.

The deck uses some robust early game with Magic Carpet and History Buff and various 1 drops to get an advantage and to press on with quality minions like good old Tirion Fordring and Zilliax.

Silence Priest

Silence Priest went from being one of the biggest memes in the history of the game with Purify to a very valid and respectable deck, to kind of forgotten again in the current meta. This Wild deck brings the good old days back again for a while.

There's not a single new Saviors of Uldum card in this deck, but it has all the old favourites like Humongous Razorleaf and Eerie Statue as well as a smattering of Rise of Shadow cards that supported the archetype.

Overload Token Shaman

We weren't sure what to expect from this Standard deck when we opened it, but it was pretty clear once we had a look through the cards it used.

The aim is to get small minions out and totems and then through the new Saviors of Uldum legendary Vessina and the classic Bloodlust hit for big damage. Straight forward enough, and a nice change from Murloc and Quest Shaman.

Hakar Combo Rogue

We were big fans of Mischief Maker when the card was released, cause it's good fun messing with your opponent a little bit. We were also pretty sure the card was not really going to see any play on ladder ever. But this is the Friday Fun post, and this Standard deck turned Mischief Maker into a vital cog in a hilarious wombo combo.

To paraphrase the mini guide that comes along with this deck: The goal of this deck is to use Mischief Maker to give your opponent both Corrupted Blood cards from Hakkar. We can do this by emptying our deck and reducing Hakkar to 1 mana with Anka, then play 1 mana Hakkar, Backstab it, and Mischief Maker the Corrupted Blood from our deck to the opponent!

Dragonlander Warrior

It's always fun to come across someone's deck idea in our deckslists and realize that their idea is not as crazy as it first sounds. This Standard deck, that tries to combine a control Highlander Warrior deck with a Dragon Warrior deck, is just such a thing.

We decided that this deck would be fun to highlight for the avid deck tinkerers among you. There's a strong enough base with the Control Warrior parts to build other things on top, and building around Dragons is always a fun plan, especially since Dragon Warrior is one of those Archetypes that never quite made it, yet always had so much potential. There's definite arguments to be made to switch this deck to Wild too, and explore the extra options that gives.

That's it for this "Friday Fun Decks", hope you find these decks as fun and interesting as we did when we put this list together. If not, why not post your idea of a fun deck in the comments, for future inspiration to us and the rest of the community!

Cheers and have a good Weekend!
