They're the weakest class in constructed. In Arena though, you run into a lot of slug-fest type situations where players constantly trade minions (due to it being hard to create strong synnergies in Arena decks; you can make some, but no deck-wide synnergies). Warriors have a lot of weapons which trade at least 2:1, which is really strong in a tit-for-tat situation.
Warsong Commander is also really good. It tends to be a bit harder to kill than in constructed, and once it's out, the Charge effect is incredibly dangerous.
Rogue is probably the most consistently good deck, but Shamans and Warriors are probably the two strongest classes when they get the right cards.
