Ready to find Mankrik’s wife? In this article, we will review the new cards, evaluate the strength of each class set and rank the sets against each other. We will also be ranking the classes based on their overall power level to predict the upcoming meta, which is impossible to do because there are too many variables, but we do this for entertainment.
In addition, we will be producing a theory-crafting article in which we will present you with ideas on what kind of decks could be successful from each class in Forged in the Barrens. It will be released on Monday, March 29th, a day before the expansion’s launch.
We’ve assessed cards based on their potential strength and scored them accordingly from 1 to 4 based on the guidelines below.
4- Meta-defining, or an extremely powerful card we have great confidence will see play. Translation: Busted!
3- Very strong card that we’re confident will see play. Translation: Nice!
2- Decent, or niche card with potential to see play. Translation: Okay!
1- A card we don’t believe will see competitive play, for whatever reason. Translation: Meh!
For neutral cards that we believe will see play, we’ve also listed the classes or decks that are most likely to use them.
Each class piece ends in final thoughts regarding the class’ prospects and its rankings.
Forged in the Barrens Set rank: How strong is the class’ new set?
Overall Power Ranking: How strong is the class based on the entire standard card pool?
We’ll see you again soon!
