Deck of the Week: Midrange Hunter

by - 6 years ago

Face hunter has been no longer a top tier deck as Patron Warrior, Handlock, and even Malygos Warlock has been dominant on the ladder. Aggro has kind of fallen a bit, but don’t be wrong, hunter is still in that top tier. Now, this deck might look a little similar to face hunter with the cards in it but it plays a bit differently. You have some pieces of of aggro to start up the early game and then you have power to ramp up late game. Cards like Savannah Highmane and Dr. Boom is how you can manage decks like Handlock and Malygos Warlock.

Deck List

Midrange Hunter

Class: Hunter

Hunter (17)

Neutral (13)

Mulligan

Webspinner on turn 1 is the best play you can manage. 2 drops worth keeping is Mad Scientist, Haunted Creeper, and Knife Juggler. Also hold on to Animal Companion as it’s a really strong turn 3 play. If you have a coin and don’t have Animal Companion keeping Piloted Shredder is a good turn 3 with coin play as well.

Strategy

This is a bit different than face hunter. It’s all about keeping board control while also keeping pressure on your opponent. Basically you want to try and keep their board clear and have some minions to still do damage with. With your hero power you’re able to put on more pressure. This deck is all about just putting out the most valuable plays on the mana curve, controlling the board, and then finishing them off. It’s easily one of the more straight forward decks out there.

Also it’s especially fun if you get 2 Savannah Highmane’s with your Webspinners. If that happens you can bet your opponent left in a salty rage and probably quit Hearthstone forever.

If you’re playing this deck on the ladder then let us know in the comments how you did!

    dunno about this deck in particular, but I was playing around with a hunter build and my webspinners kept giving me webspinners… which was sort of useful in having a constant creature to play, and my gosh did the other guy blow loads of cards removing them, so not the worst turnout either!
