Battlegrounds composition cheat-sheet
Battlegrounds Compositions Hearthstone

A simple cheat sheet for all best Battlegrounds Warbands.

Compositions are one of the toughest aspects of Battlegrounds. We hope our guides to all tribes help you learn. (cheat-sheet bonus)

This article is meant as a simple overview to use while in-game to guide your compositions in Battlegrounds. While this cheat sheet wasn’t originally planned, we decided to create one at the request of multiple people. To find all full-length guides and strategies, take a look at the Compositions page instead. Last updated for the August 31 Battlegrounds Revamp.
