Best classes for Arena?
1. Mage, Priest, Druid.
2. Warlock, Shaman, Hunter.
3. Warrior, Rogue.
My list is updated now though:
Top tier (all about the same, but if I HAD to rank them...)
There were a couple classes that were consistently at the top previously: mage is definitely up there, as well as priest.
My best classes are Paladin, Priest and Warrior because I'm consistently able to generate absurd amounts of card advantage with these classes and grind the win out.
On the other hand, I'm not a big fan of Warlock or Hunter in Arena because you have to usually go suicide aggression to win and I don't like hoping my opponent has no board clear.
You might find you're the opposite of me and you hate slow decks - the trick is playing each class so you can discover what playstyle suits you best yourself.
Tier 1: Mage
Tier 2: Warrior, Paladin, Priest
Tier 3: Shaman, Warlock, Rogue, Druid
Tier 4: Hunter
Although I believe the official tiers based on recent statistics would be:
Tier 1: Mage
Tier 2: Warrior, Paladin, Shaman
Tier 3: Warlock, Rogue, Priest, Druid
Tier 4: Hunter
I'm still not entirely sure why Priest has a low win rate and Shaman has a high one in the official statistics. I think perhaps people losing to Priest get it into their head that Priest is overpowered and pick it themselves. I personally cannot get Shaman to work, yet every time I play against it my opponents keep playing cards like Forked Lightning, Lightning Storm, Earth Elemental, Fire Elemental and Flametongue Totem and put up a great fight.

I have the same problem. Finally my fifth Shaman run got to 7 wins and that was with an amazing deck with 2 Axes, 3 Lightning Storms, a Lightning Bolt, Forked Lightning, 2 Fire Elementals and 3 Unbound Elementals. My other runs are two 3s, a 4 and a 6. I feel like Shaman is a cursed class for me, somehow I feel my "luck" is really bad with Shaman and I also tend to make more bad plays with it.
Paladin is the polar opposite, no matter what deck I draft, I seem to get to 9 wins. So on my tier list, Paladin would be number 1 and Mage number 2. And because I like winning, I pick those two classes almost always if they are available. The only exceptions are if I want to do a daily and/or I want to try another class just for fun. Usually it ends badly and I want to "comfort" myself with a couple of good Pally runs. :D
