Off-Meta Report – June 27, 2018
Looking for a change of pace on the ladder? Maybe you’ve been wanting to try something new, but don’t know where to start. Or maybe you want to play a class you haven’t really tried out before. If you’ve been looking for something different, take a look at our Off-Meta Report and really shake things up with these decks, all of which have been making waves in the rank of Legend!
To find these decks, we looked for players that have been doing well, and picked out some builds from amongst the top performers. We only selected decks that were played in 50 or more games at Legend level.
Odd Hunter – 64.3% win rate/56 games
If “face is the place” then this deck is where it is at! Pan piloted this hyper-aggressive Hunter build across the America servers with outstanding results. Baku the Mooneater brings your hero power damage up from two to three and cards like Blackwald Pixie allow you to take advantage of the damage boost multiple times in a single turn. Hunter’s Mark and Ironbeak Owl help to clear the way and Glacial Shard slows any trades that may look to remove your threats from the battlefield.
Murloc Mage – 66.2% win rate/74 games
Guiyze surfed the America server, looking to flood the board with fishy friends from this Murloc Mage minion deck! Wanting to overwhelm opponents, this deck’s awesome drawing capabilities, from cards like Book of Specters and Aluneth, paired with the likes of Archmage Arugal, help to keep constant pressure on the battlefield, all while setting up for a Murloc Warleader or Gentle Megasaur to end the game!
Rush Warrior – 62.1% win rate/95 games
A modern-day Warrior deck with a mean, mean stride. This Rush style tempo deck brings with it some mean, mean pride. Being able to immediately attack allows for you to always choose favorable trades and keeps up constant pressure until you can close out the game with big plays from Grommash Hellscream or Leeroy Jenkins. Until then, Void Ripper helps to deal with high health taunts, pesky Doomsayers and even adds some surprise burst from Tar Creeper and Acolyte of Pain.
