Hello again, everyone! Kratos coming to you for this week’s latest techs to keep your decklists up to date!
Lets get right to it…
1.The heal package in Zoo Warlock:
This old archetype has seen resurgence the past week, coming out of nowhere! What is new and exciting about this deck is the use of Lightwarden, Voodoo Doctor, Fungal Enchanter and Happy Ghoul! Adding those four to a pretty solid Keleseth Zoo deck made this deck a force to be reckoned with across all ranks of Ladder.
Zoo makes great use of this heal package to out-tempo opposing aggro decks and rush control decks down.
2.The refinement of Malygos Druid:
A lot of pro players have chosen Malygos Druid as their deck of choice to grind the ladder. Specifically, Rdu and Neirea posted good results with it last month and Orange has piloted the deck for some time now. This resulted in the deck getting refined for the current metagame, featuring only one copy of Faceless Manipulator and the addition of Alexstrasza (some people were already playing it but now it is a mainstay).
The deck is quite hard to master, but pays off should you decide to learn how to play it. Its bad matchups are a small part of the metagame, making it a solid option no matter what rank you are trying to achieve.
3.Mossy Horror in Miracle Rogue
This has been around for a few weeks now, without seeing too much play. The past few days though, Druid players seem to switch from Taunt Druid to Spreading Plague and Malfurion; these are the Pestilent archetypes such as Token and Malygos Druid. Mossy Horror is pretty sweet against those decks, and serves you well against Odd Paladin, save those pesky Level Up shenanigans. I expect a rise in play of the card and suggest you try it out!
4.Devilsaur Egg and Terrorscale Stalker in Recruit Hunter:
We’ve seen Recruit Hunter as a strong force in the current Witchwood metagame. People have piloted the deck for good results both in ladder and at tournaments. Recently, as players realized the deck is pretty solid vs control, but needed more techs vs aggro matchups, they opted for a stronger deathrattle package; they adding Devilsaur Egg and Terrorscale stalker to the mix. I guess it’s fair to call it Deathrattle Hunter and not Recruit at this point. The deck seems stronger overall this way and I expect more and more people to switch to this version as the final weeks of the Witchwood meta go by.
With the announcement of the new expansion, expect less people to try to innovate each week as they focus on the new cards and upcoming meta switch. This has been by far the most open metagame in Hearthstone’s history and I expect Blizzard to do an even better job going forward.
That’s it from me this week, see you next time!
