John is Metabomb's Editor in Chief, and is responsible for all of the Hearthstone news, features and guides content on the site.

On this page you'll find the best Wild Hearthstone decks for August 2017 (Season 41), with guides to playing the most popular.

Although Hearthstone's Wild format continues to stand very much in the shadow of the game's more popular Standard mode, it's increasingly becoming a place we like hanging out in - particular at times likes this when we approach the end of an expansion meta and we need something just a little less boring to do with our time.

Enter our guide to the best Wild decks you can play in Hearthstone right now. From here you'll be able to find a hero-by-hero pick of the top decks you can play in this format, and we've even got a starter guide for the majority of them. We'll fill in the gaps here over time, and add links in this article as and when each remaining guide is completed.

If there are any other Wild decks you'd like to see us cover, let us know in the comments and we'll include them as quickly as we can!


Remember Egg Druid? Well, a reworked version of this deck is proving to be about the strongest option the Druid has on the Wild ladder in the current meta. Not too far behind though is Jade Druid - well worth checking out if the other deck doesn't take your fancy.

Although there are other Wild Hunter decks in circulation, there are few we'd heartily recommend for the ladder above Midrange Hunter. It's admittedly not a very exciting option, but it's as consistent as ever and a good deck for dipping your toes into the uncertain waters of this format.

Secret Mage is as popular in Wild as it is in Standard and it's our biggest recommendation for this hero right now. Tempo Mage is another solid choice if you don't fancy juggling all those spells. We're still working on deck guides for both, but you'll find a snapshot of solid deck lists for Freeze Mage and Reno Mage just below.

Wild Secret Paladin isn't quite as powerful as it used to be - and has given top spot away to Midrange Paladin - but both are pretty reasonable ways of making your ladder climb this month. We're also working on our Murloc Paladin guide - the deck list is just a little further down the page.

Dragon Priest and Reno Priest are the two most common deck types you'll encounter for this hero. A Miracle / Combo deck is also a very strong choice for climbing the ladder and we'll be expanding our deck list below into a full guide in the very near future.

Miracle Rogue is the flagship archetype for this hero in the current metagame. We've kept Quest Rogue here for now, but it's long-term fortunes post-nerf have yet to be determined. Let's see how things stack up when we next review this list in the wake of the Frozen Throne launch.

There are loads of options for the Wild Shaman fan at this moment in time. Control, Aggro and Token are probably your best option but almost all of these are viable for a climb up the Wild ladder right now.

Pirate Warrior is as prevalent on the Wild ladder as it is in Standard, so if you want a smooth transition over you could do a lot worse than start here. Alternatively you have Taunt and Control options to play around with.
