Best Cards To Craft In Hearthstone March Of The Lich King
The March Of The Lich King meta is still in its infancy, so take every suggestion here with a grain of salt. There is no way of predicting what new tier-0 decks will spring up in the future, and it is recommended to save your dust until the meta stabilizes. That being said, if you want to start deckbuilding right away, consider spending your precious dust on some of these cards.
Astalor Bloodsworn is a solid neutral legendary minion and one that slots into almost every Renathal deck at the moment. Because it is a neutral minion, it will see play in most decks going forward. It provides a ton of value, especially when paired with Brann Bronzebeard. If you're looking to craft a future-proof legendary minion, Astalor Bloodsworn should be your go-to.
Nerubian Vizier is a neutral common minion that will see play in every Undead-heavy deck from now until doomsday! Not only does it have decent stats for the cost, not only does it discover a spell, but it also reduces the said spell by two mana! Truly, this card is one of the best new additions to this expansion.
While all three of the craftable Death Knight legendaries are incredibly powerful in their respective archetypes, Lady Deathwhisper is a must-include in any Frost deck. Death Knight was not the powerhouse of a class we all thought it was going to be after its initial release. Unlike Demon Hunter, which received heavy nerfs after it debuted, several Death Knight cards were buffed to be more relevant. After the nerf to Renathal, however, Frost Death Knight came out on top as the best of the three archetypes.
Being able to help you not only inflict tons of burn damage to the face but freeze your opponent's entire board is reason enough to start playing this deck. Frost Death Knight has so many amazing tools, and being able to double up on them via Lady Deathwhisper is a godsend.
Another card available via the Path of Arthas mini-set, Frostwyrm's Fury, is so incredibly overpowered it isn't funny. This card enables Frost Death Knight to pull off some ridiculous OTKs by constantly freezing the opponent's board. Even if you don't play Death Knight, it may be worth crafting this card now anyway, in case it gets nerfed. That way, you will either receive an incredibly powerful card or 400 dust when it gets hit with the nerf bat!
More of a niche pick, Hawkstrider Rancher is a great minion in any token or aggro deck. It has phenomenal stats for the cost, considering its effect is also very strong. It not only buffs every minion you play but gives them a deathrattle to summon a 1/1 minion as well. Sticky boards are the bane of any control deck, and Hawkstrider Rancher is how you can achieve this.
Invincible is a solid neutral legendary that, like Nerubian Vizier, slots comfortably into any deck that has a lot of Undead minions. Providing 20/20 in stats through its only stats and its ability, Invincible is a must-include in most control and mid-range decks.
Finally, Souleater's Scythe is a great card to craft for any Demon Hunter mains. The new spell-only cards released in March of the Lich King are incredibly strong but require you to cut out three core minions in Relic Demon Hunter. Souleater's Scythe negates that downside allowing you still to keep your best three minions in a spell-only deck. This card will likely be a must-craft going forward if Demon Hunter receives even more spell-only support.
