But we also check out what other players are using in-game, as well as feedback from places like the Hearthstone Mercenaries discord server or from the Hearthstone Mercenaries subreddit.

This tier list reflects our opinions. We’re not trying to tell you how to play, and we know that some people might disagree with us. We encourage everyone to play how they want and have fun with their friends.
