The Strength and Viability of Skeleton Barrel in the Meta

“It's a Skeleton party in the sky, until all the balloons pop... then it's a Skeleton party on the ground!”

Shipped to the skies on a barrel, these seven scoundrels are on a mission to wreck havoc on the arena..... all in good rowdy fashion. The intention of this post is to create centralized discussion regarding the current state of Skeleton Barrel, whether it needs to be changed, and the current best decks/synergies with it.
