Hey, I just hit rank 5 in wild, so I feel semi-qualified to talk about this now.

Introduction:
Wild is a format where all the coolest, most fun cards from standards past are back to play with. It's also the format where the stupidest, most **** cards from standards past are back on the table.

The meta:
There are a number of viable high-tier wild decks that you'll see on ladder. They are as follows:

"But Cato, I came to this thread because you're so amazing and I want to know what deck YOU'RE playing!"
Thank you, I'm glad you asked. I'm running reno mage, and my list is as follows:

Dirty Rat is Jesus, and your only out in some matchups. Brann Kazakus Zola lets you get quad potion. Dragon's fury is pretty good damage most of the time.

Cato's guide to playing renomage in wild:

Wild is a format where most decks focus on doing one unfair thing really well. What this means is that, in a lot of matchups, only one thing matters, and your job is to figure out what that one thing is, and play to it. Against shudderwock shaman and aviana kun druid, you need to focus on killing them fast, or dirty ratting them. Against other reno decks, what matters is saving boardclears for their gul'dan/n'zoth, not overextending into weepers, and winning fatigue by getting maximum value from all of your cards, and saving kazakus until you can get quad potion with Brann/Zola. Against paladins, tempo mages, and Greymane shamans, all you care about is not falling behind on board. Turn 3 tempo Brann is a legit play in these matchups.
