Deathwing, Onyxia or generate extra value if they stick Ysera, The Lich King. I really need card draw and some finishers. This meant I built my collection for ranked pretty slowly and I spent a lot of my first 10 months or so playing arena. Finally got the Sprint that I needed.
People say Hearthstone is simple but I would almost never play an entire game identically to what another leaderboard player would do. With such low probability, I went with Conceal, which could potentially be useful. Only beasts are above deceit. It is probably also a good idea to change classes to help reset your mentality and get the previous run out of your head. See also: New players are rewarded 3 after reaching Rank 45, 40, 35, and 30.

This appears to depend on the pool of available players at the time, with the matchmaking system accepting looser matches if necessary in order to ensure players are not left queueing for too long. Players have no way of knowing which cards will be offered next, making each choice difficult to make. I agree a deck without any beasts at all will be pretty weak but with around five beasts or so you'll usually do really well.
