2 mana for 2 attack, not really worth it. It is also and anti-aggro deck and if you can't finish your opponent with Leeroy, he either sits dead in your hand or he helps your opponent with 2 damage on the board which can sometimes be deadly. I think it is an OK swap, but if you really want to find a use for him, Aggro Pally runs one and so does the outdated BrM Hunter. You can also swap him for a different card, for example a Lance Carrier that felt like the weakest card in the deck (but of course, I probably was playing that card suboptimally).

If i wanted to replace a card for a misdirection to counter secret paladin, what card would that be, if any card at all?

Why would you think Misdirect counters Secret Paladin? They have 1/1s they can attack with a lot of the time.

Oh. I don't recommend playing Flare, I think it's just awful against every other matchup, and you should already be favoured against Paladin with this deck without it.

Stupid easy to win with this deck. Not a fun deck but it definitely gets the wins.

Would swapping in a Timber Wolf for the hounds combo be reasonable?

Not really. It takes up a space, it requires your UtH to be good and can be used only with UtH.

How far can you go with this build? I'm a fairly new player and just got the cards for this deck and trying it out. Anyone with experience from it?

okay i been playing this deck as my main rank deck. currently im in rank 5 and still feels i can go up the ladder. like every deck this one has a weakness. priest and warrior deck has an upper hand to beat this deck still skills plays a major role to turn around the situation. every time i played both of those deck i keep in my that i need to be more aggressive,you have to be more calculate on your damage get rid of those minions that will keep up the health of the hero and maybe win some games that you shouldn't suppose to win like what I did. about the LEEROY JENKINS actually it saves me a lot in crucial situation where mostly you will find out that 2 damage makes a difference so its okay to include it minus 1 arcane golem. besides if you are good enough you will have the instinct to eliminate its downside of giving away 2 1/1 minion to your opponent by setting him up with explosive traps. against other aggro decks this deck is on top of the food chain, you are beatable but with enough experience playing with it you will have the instinct to anticipate 3 to 4 turns to win the game. So for me this is highly recommended for those who are in tight of budget and wants to be competitive in rank.

Can somebody please explain the strategy of this deck vs secret paladins?

 

I don't understand how this deck is supposed to have the advantage over them. As soon as they get out their secret minion they can just wipe you off the board completely with no possible way to recover.

Don't let them have over 10 hp by the time they can play it. You are playing the most aggressive deck in the game, and you have cards like explosive trap and unleash the hounds, so allowing them to develop a board for the sake of putting out more face damage in the earlier turns is usually a fair trade. Anyway, I suggest playing the other version of the deck present on the website, because this one is a bit outdated.

 

BTW face hunter crushes secret paladin any day of the week if you play the deck right.

Hi just a heads up, but this and the other face decks still include Arcana Golem o.O

Thanks, will fix that ASAP!

There are more decks that still contain Arcane Golem (the list is on the bottom of the page). Sorry if the changes are already on the way.

Great deck. Took me all the way  from 13 to 16.

C'mon. Play the deck before you make outlandish claims.

Please provide us with replays. Saying that the deck took you from 13 to 16, a claim that you haven't provided proof for by the way, does not help anyone here, especially not you.

Played the deck, got to 10, got bored of those easy wins.

Well, had about 45 minutes to spare, why not smorc a bit ;)

Guess the results make it still viable don't they? Around the same ranks as @positiv2

Edit : We have to note that face hunter is still only viable is the wild format. In standard face hunters lost valuable tools that make your early game explosive and not easy to answer.

Agreed. If you want to play face/aggro decks, there are much better alternatives for standard.

      So the latest expansion, Mean Streets of Gadgetzan, has been out for more than a month now, and I was curious what everyone´s opinion on it was. Personally, I love the set. It adds more synergy with types of cards that weren´t as popular beforehand. For example, sets like secret mage, demon warlock, taunt warrior, and beast druid/hunter, have all gotten big buffs and can be viable in the meta. I got rank 13 with secret mage and taunt warrior alone, and hope to get to legend with them. What about you?

      The live Q&A with the two well-known Hearthstone devs took place yesterday and we've made a recap of the most interesting points.
      First of all, if you want to watch the whole thing, the VOD can be found here (it starts at 14:10). If you prefer a shorter version, Redditor EpicMelon has made a 10-min video of everything important said. Ultimately, if you don't feel like watching videos, we've made a summary of anything worth noting from yesterday's Q&A.
      Ben started talking about the new player experience, a topic he has discussed again this week. He repeated that most new players start off by playing versus A.I., some go to Casual and a minority goes to Ranked. The team has made it so that in Casual new players are exclusively matched against other new players and their MMR is kept to a 50% winrate.
      One of the currently most discussed hot topics in the Hearthstone community is the Ranked ladder. The team is satisfied with how clear the current system is in how it works. However, they do realise that its grindiness and the monthly reset can be a disadvantage and feel repetitive. To counter that, they are looking into short-term increasing the amount of bonus stars players can gain. This will hopefully increase the number of players in medium and higher ranks and move veterans away from Rank 20. However, they don't want everyone to be a Legend player either, since this would devalue the ranking. New breakpoints are also an idea the Hearthstone team is considering. As far as winstreaks stopping at Rank 5 are concerned, the idea behind this is that they wanted players to get to Legend "legit"; this could change as well, though.
      Moving to the topic of Arena, Dean announced that they are thinking of moving it to Standard format. Moreover, they want to try decreasing the amount of commons you get, as well as the amount of neutral Classic and Basic cards (especially minions). Some of these changes for Arena are already ready to be added to the game they are just waiting for the right time to patch them in. In early February, top 100 rankings for Arena will be published - just like the Ranked season ones. These rankings will be calculated based on highest average wins per run basis with a minimum requirement of 30 runs.
      The guys had a few things to say about the current meta, too. Pirate Warrior represented 30% of the meta game near the launch of Mean Streets of Gadgetzan, while there were also a lot of Pirate Shamans and Rogues. Thankfully, these numbers have dropped as other decks (like Jade Druid and Reno decks) started surfacing. Pirate decks are slightly more popular than Team 5 would like and decks with the pirate package feel same-y. If this persists, they might take a look at Pirates. Hunters and Paladins are having a hard time at the moment because they can't keep up with the aggro pirate decks. Overall, the internal meta report shows a stability in the meta: there is only a 3% difference between the winrates of the top deck and the 11th best deck.
      Lastly, there was mention of the Wild format. Ben admitted that they could do some things better for Wild. For example, it's possible that Blizzard will encourage more Wild tournaments in the future. The upcoming rotation will be interesting since Wild will have more card sets than Standard. Wild is far from dead: it's just half as popular as Standard, although Ben hasn't looked in the numbers recently. Earlier in the stream, Ben also said that the team is considering two options to keep Standard fresh: either nerfing cards or just move them to Wild.
      Lastly, Ben and Dean talked about various other small topics like the possibility of reprinting cards (no actual answer given), more Hunter and Paladin talk, wording inconsistencies and rewriting old cards, how a healthy meta is defined and Team 5 itself.

      I have a lvl 104 MM hunter currently, with 7.1.5 I have heard BM is more viable. Should I A) switch my spec now for leveling B) keep MM for leveling but dump AP into BM artifact. 
      If "A" what should my basic build look like?
       
      THanks for the help!
