The Post-Grand Tournament Arena Class Tier List
It's now been just over a month since The Grand Tournament released and it's safe to say that the Arena meta has finally settled down. While many debate how influential this expansion was for Constructed, there's no debating that's a solid mark has been left on the Arena scene. The general class rankings have shifted just about everywhere, but here's our own take on which ones you should be prioritizing.
to hate Warriors in Arena. Almost all of its Grand Tournament cards are situational and rely on other cards for them to be worth playing. Only the rares could be considered sometimes playable and those aren't nearly as good as other class rares to begin with. Outside of which you'll maybe see once ever, Warrior only proceeded to get even worse. RIP.
We almost feel like Priest should be ranked higher but the truth is we just can't. Even with a slower Arena meta, there's just not enough grey area with the class. Either you have a board presence and win or you're behind and lose. is a fantastic threat but problems with the class itself means it can't knock Warlock down a peg.
You would think Warlock was ranked higher than this but The Grand Tournament simply wasn't kind to the class. Just about everything it got was mediocre or actually terrible. is the lone exception, especially if you get it from various RNG cards like .
Secrets have always been one of the Hunter's strengths and though has added to that, it's still not the same tier as or . Another common, can be huge if you win the
. Overall, Hunter just didn't get a huge boost to its quality of Arena cards.
Top five after the jump!
