Deck Tier List (Standard) - June 2017 (Season 39) - Hearthstone

Our latest and updated list of the best decks to play in the current metagame.

Our Hearthstone tier list contains a ranked review of the most competitive Hearthstone decks to play in the month of June 2017 (Season 39).

Over the last few years, Metabomb has focused on producing a monthly round-up of the top decks being played in Hearthstone, complimented by our ever-growing collection of deck guides. While wanting to provide a solid snapshot of the latest metagame, we've previously shied away from producing a hard ranking of these decks, preferring instead to give you an overview of each hero's top three or four options. By taking this approach, we felt we could help you to quickly identify competitive decks for classes that you enjoy playing first and foremost, rather than feeling compelled to pick a particular one in order to climb the ladder effectively.

With all that said and done though, we know that some of you want to see a slightly different approach to our analysis of the current Hearthstone metagame, and do so with a fully ranked tier list that appraises the entire roster of popular decks from top to bottom. Well, back in the summer of last year we decided it was about time we started remedying that, and the end result here represents our twelth (how time flies!) ranked evaluation of the Hearthstone metagame. We'll still provide a looser monthly round-up of the best Hearthstone decks per hero - just as we've always done - but if you're first and foremost looking for a way to climb the ladder quickly, then this should hopefully give you some useful guidance.

A few words on how we've chosen to go about building our own list of the top decks in Hearthstone right now. First of all, we've considered the sort of wisdom-of-the-crowd insight into the metagame that we're all plugged into as avid players. We've also studied a number of the other tier lists that are out there and then made our own tweaks where we feel that certain decks are over or under-valued. We feel pretty confident that the end result represents a deck tier list that reflects the broader state of the metagame, whether you're playing at Legend or still climbing the middling stages of the ladder. Note, however, that decks within each tier are listed alphabetically, rather than in order per tier.

As the metagame changes in the weeks and months ahead, so will the tier list featured in this article. There's an unavoidable element of personal preference and aptitude for playstyle to take into consideration here, and so it's natural that different players will rank certain decks somewhat higher or lower. As always, we believe that you'll win more games using a deck that you've mastered and enjoy playing, rather than one that we say is superior by a single tier. By definition, the deck that you find the most success with is the best one! Nevertheless, we'd love to hear your feedback in the comments section about any additional decks you think should be included here.

With that out of the way, here's the twelfth edition of our Hearthstone deck tier list. We hope you'll enjoy this regularly updated, alternative take on the current metagame, and let us know in the comments if there's anything else you'd like to see us cover in the future!

Editor's note: June Update #2: A few decks have been shuffled up or down a rank but there's nothing dramatically different about our tier list as we hit the middle of the month. We will update this article again in time for the next season of competitive play.

    @cimpeanlukas85 Yeah I think it can arguably be nudged up a tier. Things are still moving around at the top quite a bit.
    @lucasgonçalvesdemelo It absolutely is but if you can't be bothered to provide constructive feedback, I don't feel obliged to extend the courtesy of explaining why.

    I feel like Midrange Paladin and Aggro Druid should be moved up to Tier 1, as they're two of the strongest decks in the game right now. Midrange Paladin has a very flexible gameplan, making it easy to adapt to your opponent's deck while neutralizing their threats, and Aggro Druid has some incredibly powerful early game combos that can make it impossible for your opponent to catch up with you.

    Which deck do you think is the best one you could afford if you are on budget? (Except for midrange hunter)

    @oskarhenriksson12 Definitely Secret Mage! It has two pricey epic cards but other than that most of the legendaries run in the deck are replaceable ^.^

    Quest Rogue vs. Dragon Priest
    Which one do you guys think is the best right now and in the near future?

    @derecksaeyang-lawren We've explained that they're listed alphabetically within tiers.

    @oskarhenriksson12 They're a tier apart in the latest update but it's a very, very close thing. I would caution that Dragon Priest has been around a lot longer than Quest Rogue and so stands a better chance of remaining viable in the next expansion.

    I have to fight my bias a little bit here, as I have always *loved* Dragon Priest. I still think it's probably the better bet for the long run.
