Thanks for this. I've been trying it out for a few hours and just melting the faces off the competition. I really like the incorporation of the champions and ogres as late game bruisers. Good job and thanks.

I'd toss out something and put two gurubashi berserkers in.
Priest has good card draw from clerics and PW:S so having 2 engineers and 2 inventors seems excessive. I'd toss engineers out personally.

This is actually (more or less) the same deck I used after hitting lvl 10 and trying out Play mode (casual) for the first time. From what I can recall, I only lost one game with this deck, and that was against someone that had a small handful of Legendary cards, to which I had no answer for. A very solid deck, especially for beginners or those that do not wish to spend $$ on the game!

I also played a variant of this deck that utilized Mind Control, Gurubashi Beserker and Frostwolf Warlord as my "late game" cards. I did very well with that deck, though it was more reliant on your opponent NOT having silence/control cards (or not using them wisely). If you play your cards right, and bait out some CC spells from your opponent, you can easily have a 10/10+ Frostwolf and 14/7+ Gurubashi for less mana than the 7/7 stormwind champ or the 6/7 boulderfist.

Sorry to nitpick on your wording, but best deck? It's a good deck to start with, but some of the choices are debatable.

2x Holy Smite, 2x SW:P, and 2x SW:D, are all underwelming against anything with battlecry, deathrattle, or charge. The chances of playing another all common deck without these is very low.

Playing the big vanilla minions does maximize your potential power on the board, but it also maximizes your opponents removal.

Combine these two and this deck will have trouble with both rush decks and card advantage decks.

Hey thread starter thanks a lot for this great deck list! Me and my roommate have been getting stomped by this deck in ranked for about a week now and I've been trying to find the decklist everywhere.

It's done very well against his hunter agro deck and has destroyed my mage deck and my priest deck which has a lot of rares in it. Very effective budget deck

Thank you for this deck. Awesome ! I'm already at rank 16 thanks to it.

I just tweaked it a bit, replacing the engineers because the drawing combos are already fine.

That cards are like the vertebral spin of almost every basic deck.
You can combo them with the "control" cards of each hero, get fun and win some games :)
