Hearthstone: Saviors of Uldum guide

Get the relicolo-gist of the new meta.

The Saviors of Uldum expansion is in full swing, and we’ve been playing it to our heart’s content. Some ingenious new deck archetypes and old favourites alike are shaping the game as we know it. Hearthstone is in the midst of one of the most diverse metagames we’ve had in a while, and the recent card balance changes have helped remove some of the less enjoyable aspects of the metagame.

It’s been a big month, and we’ve kept our deck list guides updated. You can find it all on our Deck Tier List so you can stay in the know about the state of the meta and build your decks accordingly.


Theorycrafting time is over - we’ve got a proper meta now! We’ll be updating our deck tier list as and when changes happen, so if you’re looking for a helping hand, head over there and pick up one of our deck guides!

Tombs of Terror

Uldum is under attack! The Tombs of Terror are coming soon, and we’re keeping an eye out for all the upcoming single-player content, from the unique bosses to the signature treasures. We’ll be keeping our Tombs of Terror guide updated with all the information we get, as well as guides on how to best take on these cursed crypts.
