Hearthstone: The best Wild Hearthstone decks - May 2017 (Season 38)

Our guide to the best decks you can use to climb the Un'Goro Wild ladder.

Now that the Un'Goro launch frenzy is finally behind us, we're able to take a closer look at how things are shaping up for Hearthstone's Wild ladder. One or two of the new expansion's decks have made it into the upper tiers of this month's collection, although for the most part it's a case of old and established favourites becoming even more powerful.

Because so much has changed for Hearthstone recently - and because we're still updating a lot of the Standard content on the site - we're going to take a slightly different approach for the first edition of this month's guide. Instead of breaking down the most powerful decks for each class, we've simply chosen to highlight the ten or so most powerful Wild decks being played right now.

That'll give you something to start playing around with in-game, and we've also included a link to our pre-Un'Goro guide for each deck, and where one exists. Although some of the combos contained within these guides may no longer be relevant, the general strategy advice should still be very useful. We'll be updating these over the coming weeks as well, so we'll be back to normal before too long!

If you have any questions, please let us know in the comments.

    For both the Zoolock deck and Midrange Hunter deck, they differ from the decklists of the guides that are attached right below them. Also, they both appear to be Standard versions of the deck, not Wild versions. (And for Midrange Hunter, the decklist listed here differs from your other Standard Midrange Hunter Guide.)

    Can anyone explain this to me...?

    @BetaMomb Hello there. I possibly didn't explain this well enough in the intro.

    I've not yet had the chance to update those individual Wild guides linked out to, so the deck list is different. The general gameplay advice should, however, still be relevant and useful.

    As for the deck lists themselves, not all Wild deck lists will contain cards that are banned from Standard! Sometimes there are just super-optimised decks out there that work well using the Classic, Basic and current sets.

    It won't happen all the time (and it typically works better with more aggressive decks), but Zoo and Midrange Hunter are classic archetypes where you don't really need to mess with a winning formula.

    Does that make a bit more sense?

    @BetaMomb Quick follow-up to my last reply. I have in fact updated the recommended Wild Midrange Hunter list to something I think is more consistent today!

    @Bedders Yes, this clears up a lot. Thanks for explaining it.
