How to Choose the Right Card
Choosing the right card in Arena involves keeping in mind a few simple guidelines. Along with the help of a Tier List to put in perspective the value of a card within a Arena setting.
arena tier list Card Combos should be avoided in Arena Decks since the chance of it being used effectively is low. However there are exception to this.
Example of a Good Combo: Dark Iron Dwarf on drop give a friendly minion 2+ Attack is useful with almost any minion card in Hearthstone make it ideal card for any Arena Deck Draft.
Example if a Bad Combo: Shadow Step Return a friendly minion to your hand. The only way this card would not be a complete waste is if you somehow have and draw a card with a really strong Battle Cry. That’s if you were lucky enough to draft one in the Arena Deck Builder.
You want your Arena Deck to have a balance of Mana Cost Cards. This will help you insure every turn you have a card to play.
Generally in this arena tier list its a good idea to Pick High Cost Mana Cards At First, This will make it more easier to adjust your Mana Curve and balance your Mana Cost of your Arena Deck
Mana Cost 0-1: Avoid (0-2 Cards)
Mana Cost 2-3: Good (5-10 Cards)
Mana Cost 4 : Amazing (10-15 Cards)
Mana Cost 5-6: Good (5-10 Cards)
Mana Cost 7-9: Avoid (2-4 Cards)
As you start building your Arena Deck from the First 5-10 Cards you should have a Deck Theme is mind. If you happen to get a lot of strong Aggro Cards then the rest of your Arena Card choices should be focused more on a Aggro play style.
Recommended Amount of Weapon Cards: 2-3
Weapon Cards are good for clearing the enemy’s board of minions at the cost of just one Card. However this arena tier list advantage is short lived since you can only use a weapon specific amount of times before it will break. On top of the Loss in Health from attacking minions just to clear the board.
Recommended Amount of Secrets Cards: 0-2
I Recommend avoiding Secret Cards in Arena if possible since its very rare these type of Cards will have any real value for the arena tier list.
Recommended Amount of Spell Cards: 10-15
The Type of Spell Cards you DO want: Fireball – Swipe – Eviscerate – Truesilver Champion
The Type of Spell Cards you DONT want: Repentance – Sacrificial Pact – Ice Lance – Sinister Strike
Recommended Amount of Minion Cards: 15-20
The Type of Minion Cards you DO want: Mechanical Yeti – Piloted Shredder – Water Elemental – Fire Elemental – Druid of the Claw
The Type of Minion Cards you DONT want: Mad Scientist – Mogu’shan Warden – Dancing Swords – Druid of the Fang
