One of the greatest joys in Hearthstone is watching players adapt and grow throughout the course of a competitive season. We’re always surprised and inspired by the inventive deck ideas that spring up on the ladder in the face of stiff competition.

Today, we wanted to showcase a few of the awesome, creative decks that have been successfully climbing through the rank of Legend.

To find these decks, we scoured the rankings for players that did well last week, and picked out some interesting builds from amongst these top performers. We only selected decks that were played in 50 or more games at Legend level.

First up we have Stancifka, running a very creative Quest Mage deck.

Stancifka's deck went through many iterations; however, this version (with an impressive 73% win rate!) seemed to serve him best.


Next up is a deck that created a lot of buzz around the release of Kobolds and Catacombs: Minionless Hunter. On the China server, 小青藤 piloted this deck to a 65% win rate.

Lastly, we have a unique take on the idea of Shaman evolution.

Jambre's Arcane Giants/Unstable Evolution deck went through 15 different revisions during its run, but he achieved a 68% win rate with this version.


Each of these players showed great skill and put up impressive numbers with some awesome deck choices. Congrats to each of these players!
