The Top Ten
1 Mage Mage is a class that is characterized by its powerful spells and ability to control the board through a variety of effects. The Mage's hero power is called "Fireblast", which allows the player to deal one damage to any target. The class is known for its freeze effects, which can stall the opponent's board while the Mage sets up their win condition.

Mage decks are diverse enough to warrant a lot of different play styles. All of them suit me and as such, I choose Jaina/Medivh.

2 Warlock Warlock focuses on sacrificing health in order to gain powerful card draw and minion-summoning abilities. Warlocks have access to a variety of powerful demons, as well as spells that can damage opponents, heal the Warlock, or clear the board of enemy minions. Warlocks also have a unique Hero Power that allows them to draw an additional card at the cost of 2 health points.

Zoo, fairly easy to craft to get it up and running on Ladder (Cost Low-High). Handlock, you punish yourself in the beginning to utterly overwhelm and crush your opposition later on (Cost High). Malylock, survive with board control and use Malygos's Spell Damage +5 to swiftly defeat you opponent (Cost Medium-High). Each of the archetypes are very strong and take practice to master. But once you do, prepare to dominate your opponent.

Very good hero cards and power and quite effective if you are able to manipulate it well

Risky but good

3 Druid Druid is a versatile class capable of playing both aggressive and control-oriented decks. The Druid class has a unique mechanic called Choose One, which allows players to choose between two powerful effects for each of their cards. Druids have access to a variety of minions and spells that can buff their own minions, summon additional minions, or deal direct damage to opponents.

Mana ramp is op

4 Priest Priest is a support-focused class with a variety of spells and abilities that can heal damaged minions or draw additional cards. Priests also have access to a range of powerful minions with unique abilities that can buff other minions or provide powerful effects like resurrection. The Priest class also has a unique Hero Power that can heal a friendly character for 2 health points.

The greatest joy is to watch that one priestly minion of yours reach over 20 attack and over 20 defense.

Basically heals everything. Always helps.

Have yet to lose with my pries deck.

5 Hunter Hunter is an aggressive class with a focus on dealing direct damage to opponents and quickly ending games. The Hunter class has access to a variety of beasts, spells, and weapons that can deal damage to the opponent's face or clear the board of enemy minions.

Hunter has some really good secret spell cards, a good example is snake trap.

Can be played like a tank due to all it's cards that have taunt.

Paladins have access to a variety of minions with powerful abilities, as well as spells that can buff minions, heal damaged characters, or clear the board of enemy minions. Paladins also have a unique Hero Power that can summon a 1/1 Silver Hand Recruit minion.

Such a great ability

Warriors have access to a variety of powerful weapons, as well as spells that can damage opponents, buff minions, or draw additional cards. The Warrior class also has a unique Hero Power that allows the player to gain 2 armor points.

Although the warrior seemingly has the worst spells, he makes up for it with fantastic class based minions, as well as tons of weapons. I also like the fact the warrior is the only class that can go beyond 30 health points!

Warrior has great finisher cards and decent openers to control the game, also the control warriors and agro are very efficient.

Lots of defense

8 Rogue Rogue is a class on stealth, combo-based gameplay, and weapon use. Rogues have access to a variety of powerful spells and minions that can deal damage, draw additional cards, or generate additional resources. The Rogue class also has a unique Hero Power that allows the player to equip a 1/2 weapon called a Dagger Mastery.

It's my absolute favorite hero to play. The possibilities are crazy. Wrecks in arena. The skill required to play certain decks is rewarding especially. Nothing is better than choosing to rush, outtempo, outsmart your opponent, overwhelm. The combos! Been playing rogue since beta and it's never disappointed. Miracle got a little boring after a while though. But now it's back with many different playstyles.

Backrow strategies are my favorite. Rogue is by far my favorite class.

9 Shaman Shaman is a class that focuses on totems, spell synergies, and minion control. Shamans have access to a variety of powerful totems and spells that can buff minions, damage opponents, or clear the board of enemy minions. The Shaman class also has a unique Hero Power that allows the player to summon a random totem with a variety of effects
