In just a few days from now we're expecting a new patch to hit Hearthstone. When that patch arrives, it will reduce the health of Small-time Buccaneer to 1, while the cost of Spirit Claws will increase to 2 Mana.
When these changes go live, it's hoped that some of the dominant Pirate and aggro decks will fade in popularity a little, while at the same time Jade decks are predicted to become much more powerful as a result. With that in mind, we wanted to put together a quick reference guide to all of the top Jade decks you can take to the ladder right now.
On this page, you'll find our pick of the very best Jade decks for the Druid, Rogue and Shaman classes. First of all we've got a quick sketch of how the deck works, along with a link to our core guide for each. We recommend starting here, as it's the best way to get up to speed with the basics.
Once you're on top of things though, we thought you'd find some alternative deck lists handy, and so we've included them in this round-up as well. Do explore and try out some of the cool new versions of the archetype once you know what you're doing!
If you have any questions about playing these decks, then just let us know in the comments and we'll all do our best to help you out.
The best Druid Jade decks
The core Jade Druid deck will prove very familiar for those of you who have dabbled in Ramp Druid in the past. The idea here is to dig deeper into your Jade Golems earlier on, and build an intimidating board that you're opponent will struggle to deal with - let alone mount an offensive of their own.
Our Jade Druid deck list and guide has everything you need to know about getting started. The deck was created by Dog.

The best Rogue Jade decks
We currently favour the N'Zoth flavour of Jade Rogue, although there are of course many alternatives and you should absolutely experiment with the others. It's always nice to have a Plan B for victory in your backpocket, and this deck can certainly boast that in spades.
Check out our N'Zoth Jade Rogue deck list and guide, then have a play around with the following alternatives takes on the archetype:
Keep in mind that the alternative deck list we are highlighting here contains Small-time Buccaneer, who may not make the cut post-nerf

The best Shaman Jade decks
Aggro Jade Shaman is obviously not coming out of the next patch in a favourable position, and so you probably want to get started with the Jade Midrange Shaman deck list. You've got plenty of control options to go alongside your Golem-summoning cards, and we're looking forward to seeing whether this is the end of the Shaman's dominance - or just the beginning...
