Best Warrior Decks for Scholomance (January 2022) – Standard & Wild!

Warrior is your weapon-based armor class that can do a bit of everything! From the slow-paced Control Warrior to the fast paced aggressive decks it has used in the past, Warrior has been a well-known threat to anyone who stands in their way! We'll be taking a look at the best Warrior decks you'll be able to play with in the Scholomance Academy expansion. The class got some particularly interesting stuff to play with in the new expansion. That means there's hopefully going to be some new options to bring into the Standard or Wild ladder!

Warrior is a class of polar opposites. On one hand it has featured a super slow and controlling style of play that would extend the game to fatigue. On the other hand, there have been decks that are super fast and could have you dead by turn four or five! Pirate Warrior in particular was infamous for this and had multiple metas where it dominated. On the slow side, Control Warrior was a common topic of discussion, with some players loving the slow grinding play style, and others hating have to play long drawn out games that took forever to complete. Then there's Patron Warrior which was one of the higher skill decks that has ever been in Hearthstone! If you mastered it, you could dominate most other decks. The archetype was eventually nerfed, and became a shell of itself soon afterwards. Overall, the Warrior class has many high points, with decks that were on either side of the spectrum.

Best Warrior Decks for Scholomance Standard

The best deck for Warrior in the Scholomance meta right now is the Big Warrior deck! Big Warrior is probably one of the most standout lists of the expansion right now and is doing quite well.

Big Warrior Deck

If you're a fan of Control Warrior then this is about as close to it as you're going to get right now. It follows a similar gameplan, where you are looking to stall your opponent in the early game. Where it differs is that we're seeking to get big threats onto the board and beat our opponent down with them. Typical Control Warriors would just try to outlast the opponents with tons of armor and fatigue. The key to the deck is in Commencement and Dimensional Ripper. These will pull or copy big minions from your remaining cards and throw them on the board. If you can last long enough, you should give your opponent quite a bit of trouble with big powerful minions they have to deal with.

Prior to Expansion: Egg Warrior Deck

Best Warrior Decks for Scholomance Wild

Wild can be a bit difficult to predict, so here's a look at some decks that have been successful on the Wild ladder. You will find that the meta of Wild doesn't fluctuate as much as Standard does when a new expansion is released. This generally only happens if one Standard deck in particular is very dominant. Normally, you will notice that just the most powerful cards out of the set find their way into decks.

Wild Pirate Warrior Deck

Wild has all of those great Pirates that have been released over the years and they clump together very nicely in the Warrior class. This is far and away the best deck for Warrior in Wild, and is a fast and reliable option for anyone to climb the ladder.
