Haha, that's 'almost' the approach I've used in the past: Use your favorite deck and just swap the hero. Thanks for posting though!

I love playing (Mono) Wisdom, but games have a tendency to take very long compared to other aspects.

Ai stomping decks that mostly play themselves"
Only uncommon/common cards corruption nefarious deck:
4 vermin
4 fumes
4 legioneers
4 consume
4 infected
4 abhorent
4 insatiable
4 mesmerizing
4 bedeviled fiend
3 undead necromancers
1 howl from beyond
2 infernal tribute
3 haunted cemetery
15 shrines

If you need to win games with another hero. Try throwing one or two more howls in it and pull out some vermin.

Obviously it can be made better with rares.(succubus, tombs, words, sculptors)

Ultra mega cheapo 100% common nature/cor. Also doesn't really need neva to win generally, she is more of a "win 30 seconds sooner" , so you can easily hero swap this one too.

4 elf scout
4 gurko shaman
4 elf warrior
4 sharpshooter
4 brothres in arms
3 sunrise fairy
4 moonlight patrol
4 bedeviled fiend
4 ambush strike
3 tornado outbreak
4 noxious fumes
10 nature
8 corruption
Vhatever

why not basic neeva in that deck? comboes well with trackers and helps to push for lethal probably more. Few tornadoes can improve it too imo.

This decks try too get a early win, basic Zash helps a bit more because most times neeva would only help finished while zash could use its power 2-3 times for some extra damage, same reason for ambush over tornado 2-3 atk +2 nearly kill all blockers while outbrake just deny it for 1 turn.

The main version i have used burning rage and fireblast instead of the nature part refilling itself when playing blood fancy and labors.

But that would add too many rares and epics for budget decks.

Okay, since I've been a new player once and it suuucks not to have some decent netdecks, I'll make some budget lists and update this post with new ones as I come up with them.
My considerations when making a budget deck will be:
-Viability on ladder.
-Mostly commons and uncommons, max 4 rares.
-Possible substitutions for some cards.
Anyhow, let's get to it.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
D/R Hybrid Zash:
Hero:
Basic Zash
Minions:
4x Lizard Barbarian
4x Goblin Warrior
3x Tortured Orc
4x Rakhi Berserker
4x Flame Serpent
4x Spoiled Aristocrat
4x Slave Gladiator
4x Bloodseeking Mutant
Spells:
4x Fireball
2x Assassinate
2x Soul Flames
Artifacts:
3x Cloning Vat
Shrines:
9x Rage Shrine
6x Dominion Shrine
3x Stronghold Metropolis

Possible substitutions:

-1x Metropolis, +1 Dominion Shrine
Lizard Barbarian / Faessayan Mercenary
Bloodseeking Mutant / Flamerune Warrior

Summary:
A pretty straightforward semi-aggro deck. Once you run out of stuff to play, you can win the game through infinite value generated by your Cloning Vats, be those usable minions or card draw with Stronghold Memepolis. The only rare in the deck is Flame Serpent, which you kind of need to close out the game vs some stubborn defensive decks in combination with Fireball. You generally cry if your opponent has Cataclysm or other board clears, but Zombies and other cookie-cutter decks not built for the late game should be favourable matchups.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
W/N Goodstuff Daris
Hero:
Basic Daris
Minions:
4x Golem
4x Forcemage Protector
3x Foundry Engineers
4x Militant Automaton
4x Library Guards
4x Gurko Tribe Shaman
1x Venerated Unicorn
4x Moonlight Patrol
4x Sunchaser Aurite
Spells:
2x Ancient Wisdom
4x Ambush Strike
4x Tornado Outbreak
Shrines:
8x Wisdom Shrine
3x Thaumic Laboratory
7x Nature Shrine

Possible substitutions:
-1x Thaumic Laboratory, +1x Wisdom Shrine (deck has lots of draw, but it's nice to have TL in the midgame)
Venerated Unicorn / Elf Warrior
Sunchaser Aurite / Spectral Aurite
Tornado Outbreak + Ambush Strike / Power Discharge + Flash Freeze (better against flyers and aggro, less burst)
Golem/Elf Warrior (Probably better, but weaker against Harpy decks)

Summary:
Strong midrange deck with tons of draw and value minions, energy flavour. Flyers are a pain to deal with in the default configuration, but it's easy to tech against this weakness. Foundry Engineers + Thaumic Lab guarantees the late game plan, while your excellent minions such as Moonlight Patrol and Library Guards help secure the midgame.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
O/R Buff Zash:
Hero:
Basic Zash
Minions:
4x Steel Host Spearman
4x Dwarf Musketeer
4x Elite Vanguard
2x Descendant of Divinity
4x Tortured Orc
4x Rakhi Berserker
3x Battlescarred Elder
Spells:
4x Touch of Light
3x Angelic Might
3x Ray of Righteousness
4x Fireball
Artifacts:
3x Armory Supplies
Shrines:
9x Order Shrine
9x Rage Shrine

Possible substitutions:

Ray of Righteousness / Pacify, Arrow Barrage, Soul Projection, Dragonfire, other removal
Angelic Might / Boiling Blood, War Fanfares

Summary:
Taking a note from the Zombie playbook, 1 speed buff dudes do work wonders on your opponent's health points. The burst potential of this deck combined with Zash's hero power can close out games quickly in the midgame. Steel Host Spearman and Dwarf Musketeer ensures a favorable matchup vs Chicken decks rampant on the ladder. The inclusion of Ray of Righteousness combined with Fireball helps in turning the board state in your favor. Armory Supplies turns your fragile dudes into slow, but durable beatsticks. Your late game consists of Battlescarred Elders and Descendants of Divinity, the former giving you more resources, the latter providing unmatched blocking potential, both come with huge bodies as an added bonus.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
O/D Soldiers Alexa:
Hero:
Basic Alexa
Minions:
4x Steel Host Spearman
4x Dwarf Musketeer
3x Dwarf Spellbreaker
4x Elite Vanguard
4x Master Tactician
3x Baseborn Recruit
4x Bloodseeking Mutant
Spells:
4x Guards! Guards!
4x Soul Flames
2x Devious Plot
3x Overwhelming Forces
Artifacts:
3x Cloning Vat
Shrines:
2x Stronghold Metropolis
2x Soldiers' Memorial
8x Order Shrine
6x Dominion Shrine

Possible substitutions:
Dwarf Spellbreaker / Faessayan Mercenary (in this case -1 O shrine, +1 D shrine)
Elite Vanguard / Heavy Infantry, Steelnor Bear Rider

Summary:
The evergreen Order/Dominion Soldiers deck, budgetified for your pleasure. The deck is weak to Cataclysm and Advanced Zash's ability, but there's not much you can do about that (including Mind Extortion makes the deck inconsistent in my opinion). The idea is to get board control, and if you get wiped come back with tokens + Overwhelming Forces. Memepolis + your tokens/Vat provide card draw, while Master Tactician/Overwhelming Forces ensures your superior position on board in the mid/late game.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
D/C Tokens Nefaros v2:
Hero:
Basic Nefaros
Minions:
4x Shadowstep Assassin
4x Thunderstorm Titan
4x Bloodseeking Mutant
3x Zombie Legionnaire
3x Death-Curse Shaman
4x Rotting Remains
4x Mesmerizing Spirit
Spells:
4x Soul Flames
2x Overwhelming Forces
4x Noxious Fumes
3x Tombs of the Damned
Artifacts:
3x Cloning Vat
Shrines:
6x Dominion Shrine
3x Stronghold Metropolis
9x Corruption Shrine

Possible substitutions:
Overwhelming Forces / Bloodborne Prince (try this and see if it works better), Raging Minotaur
Basic Nefaros / Enoch (better late game and finishing potential, but Nefaros allows for better early trades)

Summary:
Had to revise this deck a bit since Abhorrent Ghoul got nerfed, and it's pretty hard to stay on top of your early game trades with 1-speed beatdown crap. Now your minions are a bit more focused on stabilizing your early game so you can have a comfortable transition into your mid-to-late game token strategy. With this in mind, you can swap out minions and spells according to your collection and where you feel like the deck needs a bit more 'oomph".
