Token Demon Hunter

Creator: SuperiorDavid

Bringing back an archetype long-alluded to but never quite realized, this demon hunter build packs an early-game jab backed up by late-game punches from the new Fractured in Alterac Valley hero card: Kurtrus, Demon-Render.

Dust Cost: 4400

Deck Code:

Aggro-Beast Druid

Creator: Old Guardian

Augmented by some very powerful new beasty inclusions, this familiar druid archetype just got that much more stronger & consistent.
Frostsaber Matriarchs are the stars of the deck.

Dust Cost: 5400

Deck Code:
AAECAZICAomNBJSlBA650gOM5AOI9APJ9QPR9gP09gOA9wOB9wOE9wOsgAShjQTnpATppASXpQQA

Creator: Sidisi

Hunter expert Sidisi takes the efficient new secret-synergy cards & combines them with high-tempo minions in this incredibly disruptive & explosive build.

Deck Code:
AAECAR8G/7oDj+MDu4oE25EEmKAE2aMEDKS5A4LQA4TiA6vsA9vtA6mNBKuNBKmfBOSfBLugBL6gBJmtBAA=

Fractured in Alterac Valley Secret Hunter deck

Tempo Mage

Creator: Nohandsgamer

While most players went with the BIG-Spell route, this GM’s early-game take on mage is both cheap to craft & straightforward to play. Looks to be THE mage list to beat.

Dust Cost: 3400

Deck Code:
AAECAf0ECPjMA8fOA4vnA6iBBKCKBPyeBP2eBPWiBAuFzQPNzgOk0QP30QPQ7AOu9wOKjQSfkgShkgTCoAT7ogQA

Fractured in Alterac Valley Tempo Mage deck

BIG Paladin

Creator: ClarkHELLSCREAM

Content creator ClarkHELLSCREAM is no stranger to quirky, grindy & overlooked ways of playing Hearthstone. It would seem like Fractured in Alterac Valley inspired him to make this delicious lemonade out of some very BIG lemons – we’d buy it.

Dust Cost: 7660

Deck Code:
AAECAZ8FBKeNBPekBOCLBO+kBA3b7gOD3gOL+APO6wOLjQTunwT0pAT34wP4pATS0QP1pASs1AP2pAQA

Fractured in Alterac Valley Big Paladin deck

Ressurect Priest

Creator: Avelline

Streamer & top-legend-player Avelline improved upon existing control priest builds to create this absolute powerhouse late-game monster.
With both N’zoth & the new Fractured in Alterac Valley hero card of Xyrella, how can this deck lose past turn 7?

Dust Cost: 8520

Deck Code:
AAECAa0GBuiLBIujBJvYA8z5A9TtA5nrAwya6wOIowSFowSMgQTXzgPXkgSTugOKowSH9wPezAP73wP44wMA

Fractured in Alterac Valley Ressurect Priest deck

Thief-Deathrattle Rogue

Creator: J Alexander

Rogue sensei Jesse Alexander mashes up burgle & deathrattle synergies in this surprisingly high tempo build. Counterfeit Blade, Sketchy Information & Infiltrator Lilian are some rarely seen cards that make a comeback in this list – count us fascinated!

Dust Cost: 9560

Deck Code:
AAECAaIHBKH5A6vSA/KkBPuKBA33nwS9gASqywPuoASk0QOJ0gS6pATn3QO7pATT8wON9AP31AP7pQQA

Freeze Shaman

Creator: Nohandsgamer

Another intriguing deck from one of the best deck-builders in the industry. This relatively low curve-high tempo list makes tall & wide boards that are difficult to deal with, eventually finishing opponents off with sheer stats or Battlegrounds Battlemaster.

Dust Cost: 8520

Deck Code:
AAECAaoIBJzOA8f5A8KRBMORBA3buAPgzAOq3gPW9QPTgASogQSnkQSxkQS5kQT5kQSVkgTckgTblAQA

OwlTK Warlock

Creator: Feno

This creative build by streamer & previous GM Feno is a powerful mish-mash of removal spells & draw. It eventually harnesses Humongous Owl’s deathrattle effect through Tamsin’s Phylactery for incredible amounts of damage. World title contender Gaby certified.

Dust Cost: 8520

Deck Code:
AAECAa35AwjFgASXoASsywPy7QPypATxkQSwkQTXkgQL184D8pEE1+0DsZ8Eg/sDm80D6b4D4qIEk+QD26MEvfEDAA==

Control-OTK Warrior

Creator: WarShack

Streamer/Youtuber Warshack commits to the full OTK in this very heavily packed build of control warrior. The primary objective? Survive! Once you do trust in Captain Galvangar (aided by To the Front! & friends) to do the rest.

Dust Cost: 13800

Deck Code:
AAECAQcIvrkDk9ADqu4Dj+8Dx/kDvIoErKAEiqUEC7i5A7beA8HeA47tA4/tA9XxA/mMBPqMBJaVBImgBPyiBAA=
