About John Bedford

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

Our budget Rastakhan decks page includes cheap deck lists for the Druid, Hunter, Mage, Paladin, Priest, Rogue, Shaman, Warlock and Warrior heroes of Hearthstone.

Every time a new Hearthstone expansion rolls into town there's no shortage of new and exciting decks to mess around with. The problem, though, is that a lot of them are typically quite expensive to build and remain out of reach for new or lapsed players. It can be hard to get involved in all the new fun, in other words.

When you combine the crafting economy with a very uncertain meta - and where the cards you craft today could be out of fashion tomorro - you might find yourself tempted to sit out on the sidelines and wait to see how it all shakes out.

We want to help everyone enjoy the expansion though, and so in this article we're highlighting a collection of budget-orientated Rastakhan's Rumble deck lists that will help you get a taste of the meta without risking too much. Do remember though that even the cheaper cards you craft may not feature in the meta over the long-run.

We've still got a couple of blanks to fill in here, but we're hunting high and low to find appropriate deck lists. Check back soon as we expect to update this article again before the end of today.
