[Top 5] Hearthstone Best Free Decks Right Now

Hearthstone Best Free Decks
Sometimes it can be very hard to make a strong deck if you play for free. Here are the best decks every free-to-play player can craft.

Totem Shaman

Totem Shaman is one of the most interesting decks on this list. It costs 2000 dust and can be crafted by most free-to-play players. It can surprise many players with its effectiveness.

What’s fun about this deck:

  • It uses one of the weakest minion tribes in the game-totems to win games and OTK opponents
  • It can generate a lot of tempo through cards like Splitting Axe and Serpentshrine Portal
  • It can build wide board and buff all of its minions for a low mana cost

How to play this deck effectively:

  • Mulligan for Blazing Battlemage, Surging Tempest and EVIL Totem
  • Try to duplicate Mana Tide Totem, Flametongue Totem and EVIL Totem with Splitting Axe and Serpentshrine Portal because these are your strongest totems
  • You can include Bloodlust in the deck to make it easier to OTK opponents when you manage to build a wide board
  • If you are going second and have EVIL Totem in hand coin it out as most decks cannot deal with it in the early game and it will generate you a lot of value
  • Including Sludge Slurper and Magic Carpet will slightly up the cost of the deck but are worth it if you have 1000 extra dust

  • # 2x (0) Totemic Surge
  • # 2x (0) Totemic Might

Spell Druid

Spell Druid is the only non-aggressive deck on this list. Its game plan is to summon lots of small minions to overwhelm its opponent.

  • Mulligan for Wild Growth, Overgrowth, Glowfly Swarm and Fungal Fortunes
