Not much has changed in the past two weeks.
Hunter is still the best (till the Nerf patch on 22nd September), and as such I don’t have a new deck article since it has been written about a thousand times and is getting nerfed soon. Instead, I want to talk about a recent trend that arose to combat the Hunter menace on ladder that will only get stronger after the upcoming balance patch: control decks. There are four control decks finding success in today’s metagame: Warrior, Paladin (specifically the Tauntadin variant), Priest, and Shaman. Each of these decks has its merits, and I’ll walk through the strengths and weaknesses of each in part 1 and how each plays against the popular metagame and each other in part 2.
