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

It can always be tricky knowing where to start in a new Hearthstone expansion, particularly if you have limited crafting dust to play around with, or you don't have the means to open many packs. You may also just want to sit on the sidelines for a couple of weeks, and wait for the new meta to stabilise.

To help you get more out of the new expansion without breaking the bank, we've collected together some of the best budget Rise of Shadows decks we've seen ahead of launch. We've also linked to our core guides in each case, and if you want some helping playing them.

We'll have another update for you after launch, but here's our round-up of decks that will give you a taste of everything Rise of Shadows has to offer.
