One of the greatest joys in Hearthstone is watching players adapt and grow throughout the course of a competitive season. We’re always surprised and inspired by the inventive deck ideas that spring up on the ladder in the face of stiff competition.
Today, we wanted to highlight some of the more unorthodox decks that have seeing success on the ladder at the rank of Legend.
To find these decks, we scoured the rankings for players that did well last week and picked out some interesting builds from amongst these top performers. We only selected decks that were played in 50 or more games at Legend level.
Our first deck comes to us from Growgo on the EU server. Winning 63% of his matches over an amazing 149 games played, Growgo showed true dedication and skill with this build. His take on Warrior looks to gain armor and control the board before eventually winning with Coldlight Oracle and Dead Man’s Hand. That win percentage over 149 games show how consistent this deck can be once you learn its ins and outs.
Next up, we have Makki91 and his Malygos Druid deck. Versions of this deck have been showing up more frequently lately, but Makki91’s use of Twig of the World Tree and Malygos to set up huge Swipe and Moonfire turns helped him reach a 62% winrate over 50 games, bringing this deck into the spotlight.
Last, but certainly not least, we have Mowah from the EU server with a control Paladin deck. Mowah used this deck to set up different victory conditions for different encounters, resulting in a 66% winrate over 84 games. While this Paladin deck can win with minions in the midgame, it can also pull out victories in slower matches by utilizing a combo with Uther of the Ebon Blade and the Four Horseman.
Congrats to each of these players on an awesome showing! Try these decks out on ladder and let us know what you think. These can all take some practice to get the hang of—we’ve seen people’s winrate with these decks start low and slowly increase as they get better at the combos.
Good luck on your climbs, everyone!
