Basic (0 Dust Cost) Decks

These deck guides are aimed for those just starting out and have no cards in their collection besides the basic cards (which can be obtained for free in the game). They are designed to be starter decks for newer players before they spend any money on packs or expansions. Once you are ready to craft or purchase cards, check out the Collection Guide and the Amazon Coins Guide to find out how to buy cheaper Hearthstone Packs!

Innervate a245f0e7

Druid Class

Ramp Druid is a deck that utilizes the mana acceleration from Wild Growth and Innervate to bring out late game minions early in the game.

Hunter Class

A deck whose whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Beasts Hunter relies on the synergy bonuses between Beast minions and spells to mow down opponents (by Spark)

Stormwind champion 6706c4c4

Paladin Class

Token Paladin attempts to maximize the value out of Paladin’s ability to generate cheap 1/1 tokens to swarm opponents. Stormwind Champion is a key card used in this deck to buff small 1/1s into more intimidating 2/2s.

Priest Class

A time-tested Basic Priest deck that utilizes Northshire Clerics, Darkscale Healers, and Holy Novas to run an extremely efficient draw engine.

Rogue Class

An extremely fun to play deck that focuses on Rogue’s cheap spells to generate tempo over our opponents.

Shaman Class

Like Token Paladin, this deck tries to take advantage of Shaman’s ability to generate Totems with his hero power. Bloodlust is the key card in this deck, which can be used in conjunction with our seemingly “useless” totems to burst an opponent down from ~15 health.

Mortal coil 70180db1

Warlock Class

Basic Warlock is built around four primary removal spells available in Warlock’s Basic card set. These are Soulfire, Mortal Coil, Shadow Bolt, and Hellfire. Because Hellfire and Life Tap both deal damage to you, it’s very easy to push yourself carelessly into lethal range for your opponent. However, when these removal spells are used efficiently in conjunction with the spell power bonus from Ogre Magi, they can be amazing.

Warrior Class

Weapons Warrior takes advantage of Warrior’s cheap and effective weapons to control the board, while chargers like Kor’kron Elite help whittle our opponents down.
