Basic deck
Basic decks are pre-made card lists provided for new players, composed entirely of cards from the Basic card set, including neutral cards and class cards available at level 1. There are 9 basic decks in total, one for each class.
Basic decks are the default deck lists provided whenever gaining a new deck slot, offering a quick, simple way of getting to know a class and the game itself without needing to spend time constructing a deck. Basic decks are provided automatically for new players as they unlock each class.
While they provide a reasonable starting point for a new class, once the player has gotten to grips with the basics, and added a few cards to their collection, it is generally recommended to try their hand at constructing their own decks. This not only helps players to learn about the game's deeper strategic elements, but is likely to provide a superior deck to the basic decks available. Players can use their favourite cards from that class' basic deck (or the entire deck) as a starting point for building their new deck.
For those seeking a helping hand in learning to construct effective decks, there are two main options. Online card listings on sites such as Hearthpwn.com provide a constantly updated selection of popular and competitive decks, often accompanied by tips and guidance on using the deck, as well as suggestions for substitutions where the player has not yet collected certain cards.
Alternatively, Deck Recipes can provide a useful bridge into deck building, with the 'Classic <class>' recipes representing an upgraded version of the basic decks, featuring only Basic and Classic cards and mostly lower rarities, but with much stronger synergies and a better chance of victory. Other Deck Recipes are more complex, featuring specific themes and strategies, and requiring cards from various card sets and of higher rarities. Deck Recipes are more accessible than online listings due to a smaller number of options and their integration within the game.
