Hearthstone 20.2 Patch has arrived with a slew of new content, including new Battleground heroes and minions, new Diamond cards, bug fixes and more.
And of course, there are several new things in the shop, including new hero skins, and a brand new type of item: Battle-Ready decks.
For the first time in Hearthstone's history, Blizzard is selling full decks instead of card packs or adventures with cards.
This means that for real money you will be able to get a deck of 30 cards, and all of the offered decks are absolutely competitive in the current meta.
There are 10 Battle-Ready decks currently available in the shop, one for each class.
Battle-Ready decks cost 19,99€ per deck, which is generally a completely fair price, given that meta-ready decks in card games like Yu-Gi-Oh and MTG often cost several hundred dollars.
All Battle-Ready decks are of high quality and the price is really tempting, and probably many free-to-play players are considering buying them.
But the catch is that you can buy only one deck, as Blizzard has put a restriction that only one Battle-Ready deck purchase can be done per account.
If you are having trouble deciding where to invest your money, worry not, we are here to help you!
What is the best Hearthstone Battle-Ready Deck?
Based on the current meta, these are the three best Battle-Ready Decks to buy, and it's up to you to decide which one suits your playstyle.
Barrens Stampede - Hunter (Face Hunter)
It is more or less the exact copy of currently one of the best decks in the meta - Face Hunter - which has a win rate of around ~60%, with a few variations.
It is a really strong deck which is also a lot of fun to play, it works really well against almost any other strong meta deck and the games are often quick which means you will be able to climb the ladder fast.
Rokara’s Rushers - Warrior (Rush Warrior)
People thought that Rokara will be a weak card, but it turns out that it is one of the strongest legendary cards from Forged in the Barrens.
This is a really strong tempo deck that combines hand-buffing with Rush and many cards have great synergy around the Rush mechanic.
You will often overwhelm your opponent with huge minions to which they will not have an answer. Deck's only weakness are classes that have several huge board clears, like Priest and Warlock, but those classes are currently not strong in this meta, so you will not play against them as often.
Holy Secrets - Paladin (Secrets Paladin)
Absolutely the best and safest purchase. Many predicted that the new Secret Paladin deck will be the strongest deck in the Barrens meta, and that's indeed true.
It is a very strong tempo deck that consistently wins the early game board control with efficient minions and annoying secrets that are hard to play around.
And as if that wasn't enough, it also wins the mid and late game with cards like Hammer of the Naaru, Kazakus and Cannonmaster Smythe.
Blizzard confirmed that they don't have plans to nerf these decks anytime soon, so each of these Battle-Ready Decks is currently a safe pick.
These three decks represent the strongest decks in the meta and each comes with 3 Legendary, 6 Epic, and 6 Rare cards. You would need to open a lot of packs in order to construct any of these decks, so if you are planning on spending money on Hearthstone, purchasing any of these Battle-Ready Decks is a no-brainer.

And while Secret Paladin is slightly stronger than Rush Warrior and Face Hunter, all three have well above 60% win rate, and it is entirely up to you and your preferences which one would you like to play.
If you opt strictly for the strongest deck, go with Secret Paladin. On the other hand, we think that Face Hunter has the least chances to be nerfed, so there's that to be taken into consideration as well, though as we've already mentioned, nerfs for these decks are not on the horizon.
