One of the most interesting tournaments going on this season in Hearthstone esports is MAX League of Nations, a series in which 72 of Europe’s best players, including several Grandmasters, represent their country in Last Hero Standing best-of-three format.
The matches will be streamed every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday on MAX Team’s Twitch channel. The players are allowed to submit new decks each week.
This article features a breakdown of every archetype played in every lineup for the week, highlights of some of the most interesting ones, and the links to get deck codes for all of them.
The meta was drastically altered by the balance changes to Deck of Lunacy, Sword of the Fallen, Jandice Barov, Pen Flinger, and the Watch Posts. And while some matches occurred after the patch went live, other matches were played before. In order to more accurately represent the meta for the week, we’ve broken up the lineups into two groups – lineups that were played before the nerfs, and lineups that were played after the nerfs.
Furyhunter, Crane333 & Hoej
This was the defining lineup of the pre-patch Forged in the Barrens meta. In continuation of the previous week, pre-patch players brought Secret Libram Paladin, Spell Mage, and some flavor of Rogue with little variation. Team Denmark’s lineup is an example of this, with standard lists of each dominant archetype.
J4YOU, iNS4NE & Silvors
The post-patch meta has not settled at all, but the most popular classes brought this week post-patch are Demon Hunter, Mage, and Warlock. Team Ukraine showcases all three classes in their lineup, bringing Midrange Demon Hunter, Spell Mage, and Tickatus Warlock. Midrange Demon Hunter and Tickatus Warlock were non-existent last week, but the changes to the meta have potentially opened the way for these decks to shine. Spell Mage, on the other hand, is still being brought despite the changes to Deck of Lunacy.
