Battle-Ready Deck Value Interpretation


Sometimes I calculate things. Usually, I feel like somebody somewhere else has probably already done it and posted it somewhere and I just can't find it. This time, since it's so close to its relevant materials' release, I'm hoping someone will find it helpful.


I calculated the value of a new “Battle-Ready” deck by how much dust you'd get FOR DUSTING the whole thing. This is different than what I believe is the more common practice of valuing based on how much it'd cost TO CRAFT, so please be aware. I thought this could be useful if someone has all the cards, and just wants the most dust for their buck, or wants to feel better about dusting a whole deck later in case they hate it.


Things can get complicated really fast in terms of more general value when it comes to an individual, so this data may only be a stepping-off point for your own calculations, or not helpful to those who really know who they are and what they want. For example, if I know I probably want to use a certain legendary in a bunch of my own custom decks later, that legendary has more value to me than another legendary I won't use, despite yielding the same exact amount of dust when disenchanted.


Opinions are all over the place. I'm mostly just sticking to objective values here.


I was expecting the dust yields of these decks to vary more, so perhaps your take-away will just be that it's not really that big of a deal. At least maybe you won't have to do the work I did to learn that.




Hearthstone May 2021 Battle-Ready Decks: Dust-Yield Values




Normal Yields of Dusting by Rarity:

Legendary 400 dust

Epic 100 dust

Rare 20 dust

Common 5 dust




The Year of the Gryphon Core Set is not dustable, nor is Mankrik, from what I understand. In fact, I believe you're not even actually getting dupes of the Gryphon Core cards listed in the decks regardless, and I don't know if my second Mankrik will mean anything dust-wise later on, or even continue existing on its own. This is a big part of why I decided to put the effort in to actually check the values, since first glance didn't feel precise enough with all those Gryphon Core cards kind of not actually being in the deck — other than for the recipe, but I'm not paying real money for a recipe here; I'm looking for what cards I'm getting.


I've included all my values, so if I've made a mistake it'll be easier for you to see where and help me fix it.

On dust alone (so not weighing for anything other than dustability), the rogue deck has the highest yield, and the priest the lowest. I will again stress that an incomplete collection basically throws all this around as different weight based on your playstyle, your focus, the meta, and what you already have or don't.

EDIT: Sorry, I'm struggling with Reddit's interpretation of my formatting…
