Best Saviors of Uldum Decks – The Top Meta Lists So Far!

We're taking a look at all of the best deck lists from the new Saviors of Uldum Hearthstone expansion!

Our Best Saviors of Uldum Decks features the absolute top lists that are being tried out in the new expansion! The meta is going to be raw for a week or two, but we'll be constantly updating this post with the decks that are proving themselves at a higher tier than the rest.

Saviors of Uldum is the second expansion in the Year of the Dragon! Hearthstone has been going through quite a bit of changes lately, this includes buffing cards which was practically unheard during the lifespan of the game. Nerfs have been coming out much quicker, and they even gave players some powerful new cards. There was even a Hall of Fame card rotation in the middle of the year! These changes have brought us to the new expansion, where we're getting brand new Quests and the return of cards that synergize with decks that only contain one of every card. Blizzard appears to be trying to bring players back, so we'll see if this dose of nostalgia will get the job done.

Decks will be filtering in and out of this list as we learn what is working and what isn't. Early on in the expansion, these decks will be very raw and it will take at least a couple of weeks before things are refined and the meta settles in. Always craft cards with extreme caution in the early parts of an expansion.

Standout Decks

Here's a look at the absolute best decks so far! It's very early in the meta, so expect a lot of changes in the near future. We've got the best decks by class further down the page.

Best Saviors of Uldum Decks

We're featuring some of the best pro decks, and along with those we have some deck guides for you to better learn how to pilot some of these new lists.

Druid Decks

Druid walks into Saviors of Uldum with a top tier deck in Token Druid. The class will be getting some interesting cards in the new expansion, and could send Druid towards a slower style of deck. Elise the Enlightened could set the stage for a possible Highlander deck, and the class is getting another chance at a quest deck with Untapped Potential . In the latter case, you've got additional synergy with Crystal Merchant who also rewards you for passing the turn with unspent Mana.

Hunter Decks

Mech Hunter has dominated the ladder for the later parts of the Rise of Shadows meta. It doesn't appear to be getting much additional support for that deck in the new expansion, but is getting some different cards that promote a synergy that revolves around summoning minions. There's also some Beast synergies, and Hunter's Pack which helps the class with its weakness at drawing cards.

Mage Decks

Mage was looking a bit rocky at first, but it found some footing in the meta with Freeze Mage and cyclone Mage carrying it to the end of the Rise of Shadows. It now gets to look forward towards the potential of some Secret based decks, and going all in on some random spell shenanigans!

Paladin Decks

Paladin had an okay recent expansion and was able to leverage Mechs to some success as well as getting some combo play with the Holy Wrath based deck. In Saviors of Uldum, it's looking a bit muddled as to what Paladin will end up focusing on. There's the potential for Murlocs, or they could go towards a small minion based aggro deck. The class also got a pretty powerful singleton card with Sir Finley of the Sands .

Priest Decks

Priest did not have much luck in the Rise of Shadows meta, so we'll be looking to see if they can find a foothold in the new expansion. There's some potential for Deathrattle shenanigans with Wretched Reclaimer , and the class could go the Restore Health route and take advantage of the Activate the Obelisk quest.

Rogue Decks

Rogue had some interesting options throughout the recent meta and even required some nerfs to take it down a peg. With Saviors of Uldum on the way, it looks like the class might have a chance to make some interesting combos happen with Anka, the Buried. They also got some more support for the Thief archetype that always seems to just bubbling under the surface and waiting to make its big splash on the meta.

Shaman Decks

Murlocs have carried Shaman in the recent meta, and I wouldn't be surprised to see them used early on just to steam roll the unrefined decks that appear on the ladder in the early stages of a new expansion. If you've been a Shudderwock fan, the class has gotten some additional Battlecry deck support.

Warlock Decks

Warlock did not have a good time in the Rise of Shadows meta and largely relied on Zoolock to carry it throughout. The new expansion looks to be pushing the class towards a Lackey based style of implementation. Other than that, the Quest makes Plot Twist Warlock more of a possibility.

Deck Guides

Lackey Zoolock

Warlock Neutral
2x - Flame Imp 2x - Abusive Sergeant
2x - Grim Rally 2x - Crystallizer
1x - The Soularium 2x - Mecharoo
2x - Voidwalker 2x - Knife Juggler
2x - EVIL Genius 2x - Serpent Egg

2x - Defender of Argus
2x - Sea Giant

Warrior Decks

Warrior rides into the new expansion with a couple of solid decks in its back pocket. Control Warrior is a powerhouse, but Bomb Warrior looks like it could do well in the meta if singleton decks are popular. There has been a lot of talk about how Bomb Warrior is going to kill the fun of this expansion because sticking those bombs in Highlander decks will shut off the ability to activate the cards! This is a legitimate concern, so we'll see how things end up and if Warrior spoils the party.
