The best Hearthstone decks for June 2018 (Season 51), with deck lists and guides to playing each one to perfection.

Welcome to a new Season of Hearthstone this June. The recent patch nerf has tamed some of the more problematic decks somewhat, while also allowing a few new - or at least revived - inventions to have their moment in the spotlight.

For the most part the nerfs have toned down some of those most difficult decks, rather than crippling them outright. Even Paladin is still a viable way to climb the ladder, for example, while Cubelock has been tamed rather than taken out of the game altogether, and still enjoys something of a Tier 2 status.

Elsewhere we've seen the likes of Even Warlock and Even Shaman rise to the top of the pile, and even Shudderwock Shaman is back for more. All things considered we think the patch has done a good job of rebalancing the meta rather than turning it upside down - good news for those of you who can only play a limited number of decks.

In this article you'll find our usual recommendations for each hero in the game. We've listed them in approximate order of strength, with the most powerful at the top. We'll have another update for you when the next season of competitive play kicks off in just under a month from now.

Best Druid decks for the Standard ladder

Top Rated Decks

Token Druid and Taunt Druid are this hero's most powerful archetypes for the month of June. A new Devilsaur Druid is looking very tasty too, and even Malygos Druid is making a bit of a comeback at the moment. Spiteful Druid's long-term prospects are not looking good at the moment, but we include it here for those of you determined to soldier on with it.

Best Hunter decks for the Standard ladder

Top Rated Decks

Who would have guessed that Spell Hunter would end up as the hero's most competitive deck? If that doesn't take your fancy this month then Big (Recruit) Hunter is probably your next best option. Face Hunter and Midrange Hunter are still seeing competitive play but sit much, much further down the pecking order.

Best Mage decks for the Standard ladder

Top Rated Decks

It's all about Control - or Big Spell - Mage this month, but Secret Tempo Mage continues to be a fighting force on the Standard ladder. Elemental Mage is much more experimental, but you might enjoy it if you've grown tired of the other two.

Best Paladin decks for the Standard ladder

Top Rated Decks

Odd Paladin has taken top spot from Even Paladin although that latter deck is still seeing play in a new and revised - minus Call to Arms - form. Murloc Paladin is the other option, but it's considerably weaker than it was before.

Best Priest decks for the Standard ladder

Top Rated Decks

Combo Priest is proving very popular for the hero at the moment, while a revived take on good old Control Priest is also enjoying a lot of play right now. Finally there's Quest Priest - a bit of a surprise revival but a welcome one nevertheless.

Best Rogue decks for the Standard ladder

Top Rated Decks

Odd Rogue is by far the strongest Rogue deck right now - and is in fact one of the strongest decks in the game altogether - although Miracle Rogue isn't too far behind in the pecking order. Quest Rogue, however, is well and truly muted at this point. It was fun while it lasted though, eh?

Best Shaman decks for the Standard ladder

Top Rated Decks

Have no doubt that Even Shaman is top-dog for the hero right now, but lo and behold it looks like Shudderwock Shaman is back for another bite of...whatever it fancies biting. Those are pretty much the only competitive options for the Shaman in the current meta, however.

Best Warlock decks for the Standard ladder

Top Rated Decks

Even Warlock is a Tier 1 deck right now and comes highly recommended to any Warlock player. Control Warlock and Cubelock are both still in the game despite the recent nerfs, but Zoo has sadly fallen far down the rankings over the last week or two.

Best Warrior decks for the Standard ladder

Top Rated Decks

Go for Quest Warrior if you want to ladder with this hero in June. Alternatively you might want to check out a revived version of Big Warrior. Note, however, that Aggro / Pirate Warrior and Odd Fatigue Warrior are highly experimental, low-ranking decks at the time of publishing this article.
