Our Hearthstone tier list contains a ranked review of the most competitive Hearthstone decks to play in the month of May 2020 (Season 74).
Hearthstone gives us the freedom to harness our creativity and put together ideas to outsmart our opponents and emerge victorious. Some of these ideas end with more success than others, though. With this in mind, it's super useful to have a handy tool which'll help you work out which deck is most likely to shoot you up the ladder, or at least go toe to toe with strong players. This is where our Deck Tier List comes into play, as it breaks down the highest win rate decks in the metagame and guides you through how to play each of them.
For the beginning of Ashes of Outland, we're hoping to see a nice, diverse metagame with a load of decks available to play. Of course, Demon Hunter is the exciting new addition, but other classes are getting some really tasty tools too. The meta should settle soon, but here's how it's looking at the moment.
It’s important to remember: the highest win-rate deck won’t always be the one you see the most success with. We’ve had far more success recently with Albatross Priest than with Highlander Hunter simply because it’s a deck we find more satisfying to play, whereas some might really prefer going for Bomb Warrior. All in all, we recommend you use this Deck Tier List as a guide hub for the decks, but not as gospel on which deck you should always play. It’s about having fun at the end of the day, and when you’re enjoying yourself, you’ll win more. We've also got a handy page for the Best Ashes of Outland Budget Decks, so if you're unsure as to whether to go all in on an archetype, give it a look.
We’ll be keeping this Deck Tier List updated at all times too, so keep an eye over here when meta shifts and updates come about. Given the developers’ recent penchant for making sudden huge changes to the game at the drop of a hat, we’re likely in for a dynamic expansion season in Ashes of Outland.
Our Best Budget Ashes of Outland Decks page is well worth glancing at if you're a casual player who still wants to get stuck into the competitive side of things. What's more, our overview of the new Demon Hunter class page should help you work out whether or not Illidan is for you.
