Top 10 Hearthstone Best Aggro Decks That Wreck Hard!

Hearthstone Aggro Decks
Leeroy Jenkins

​Many players only play for a limited amount of time and don’t have time to play ladder all day. In such cases, aggressive decks can be very beneficial because the games are shorter, which allows you to play more games. Aggressive decks are great for new players as well because they aren’t hard to play and aren’t expensive to craft.

1.     Mech Paladin

Mech Paladin is currently the best aggressive deck. It only uses staple legendary cards and is extremely cheap to craft. This deck tries to win by playing discounted mechs and magnetizing them together.

What’s good about this deck:

  • It is cheap to craft
  • It has some really strong draw cards, which are really good in aggressive decks
  • It can generate a lot of tempo by discounting its minions

How to play this deck effectively:

  • Always mulligan for your 1-drops, Crystology and Galvanizer
  • Try to reduce the cost of as many minions as possible with Galvanizer. Doing this in the early turns of the game can help you win
  • When playing against aggressive decks, try to control the board and go for value trades
  • When playing against control decks, try to go for as much damage as possible
  • Try to always have at least 1 mech on the board at the start of your turn. This will allow you to  magnetize other mechs onto it and attack straight away

  • # 2x (1) Mecharoo
