With a game like Hearthstone its very easy for the meta to narrow. When everyone plays the “best” decks, it becomes a repetitive grind with the same match-ups over and over.
We want to change that. We plan on doing it by offering meta analysis, meta solutions and the deck building skills. This allows you to understand the meta, know how to innovate to counter it, and be able to build a successful deck.
We’re all about creative deck building to counter the meta, improve your skills and win at Hearthstone.
Who we are:
Corey “Irronman” Rhys-Jones
#1 NA on a couple of occasions and promoter of several new deck archetypes.
He’s an old hand at deck-building & excels at meta analysis. Tempo Rogue, Token Druid and Pirate Rogue were all decks he released the first successful build of.
At heart he is a writer, he loves creating guides and useful articles, and now he is writing for you.
He occasionally does coaching, if you’d like to see if a spot is available, contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org
Damo “Runner” Ryan
You might have heard from Damo, he’s our Podcast Host and social media guy. He loves interacting with you, our readers. He hopes you like him, he sure likes you.
Luke “ShamonaHe” Brue
Our streamer partner, ShamonaHe often creates video content to match our articles. He is a semi-pro player pushing for pro, and as such he’s an extremely good player.
He also happens to be very articulate on stream, so if you’re looking to learn, we definitely suggest it. His stream is: Twitch.tv/ShamonaHe
Hi! I’m the admin guy for TheIrronSmith, I take care of the website, business stuff, keeping everything running smoothly and look for feedback on how we can improve.
Have something to offer? We’d love to hear about it, we can’t make this awesome on our own.
Send us a message and tell us what you’d like to contribute and we’ll try to get back to you within a day.
We don’t write budget decks for beginners we write them for experienced players. Why?
Firstly because that’s who this website is for, and trying a new deck type can be expensive, even if you already have a few good decks.
Our aim is to allow you to try out, and win, with multiple deck types easily and without having to spend a lot of money on it.
Our budget lists come in at a very low dust cost (below 1300) but often assume that the user has at least a Naxxramas card base. We believe this will be more useful to our audience.
Meta Solutions are where we help you counter the current meta-game. We’ll deconstruct the current meta, show you how to beat it and post some decks that we think can.
We believe that a narrow meta is boring and frustrating, our goal with Meta Solutions is to give you a fresh perspective on decks you can climb with. Innovation is going to be driving force behind this content, in order to create a more varied and fun experience.
Community Decks of the Week
We love it when you build innovative decks, so each week we’ll showcase the community decks we think are the best and Irronman will give his thoughts on them. Decks will primarily be from Hearthpwn.com & direct submissions.
TempoStorm – We think TempoStorm’s deck builder is the nicest around. Thanks to Reynad for letting us use it for our deck images.
The /r/Hearthstone community – Thanks everyone there for insight into what content to make, useful feedback, kind notes and helping our site take off!
The /r/CompetitiveHS community – We’re so happy we found you! Irronman in particular has loved your intellectual discussion, willingness to engage with our in-depth content and constructive feedback.
