Hello! I love to play hunter but I haven't prove to be very good at it since all the nerfs, in any case I'm trying as many Hunter decks as I can. I want to give this deck a shot, however I don't have mad scientist, which two cards are recommended to replace it?

Thanks :3

There are no replacements to Mad Scientist, the card is too unique and powerful. If you must play without them, i'd add 2 Arcane Shot, or 1 Arcane Shot and 1 Tracking.

Done testing the deck. ^^ Played 30 matches so far. I have written down the wins/loses.

 

Warrior - 1W 2L

Shaman - 3W 0L

Rogue - 1W 1L

Paladin - 3W 1L

Hunter - 2W 3L

Druid - 4W 1L

Warlock - 0W 2L

Mage - 1W 2L

Priest - 2W 1L

 

30 Matches - 17W 13L - Rank 13 1 Star to Rank 11 1 Star

Warlock - 0W 2L
Mage - 1W 2L

These two seem very odd, All of Freeze Mage, Mech Mage, Zoo and Handlock are extremely good matchups for this deck.

Both Mage loses were against Mech Mage. And both Warlock loses were against handlock.

I am always losing against Mech Mage because they get control over the board too fast. And against handlock, both loses were like, in turn 4 he got 8 hp left, then he put 2 Giants, defender of argus and well played.

I am having some problems with this deck. Should I really never mulligan? Even for those minions that will charge up like Mana Wyrm and Undertaker? What about the card draw cards like Northshire Cleric and Acolyte? I feel like I am losing a lot on card draw because by turn 6 I have no cards left in my hand. Any idea what I may be doing wrong?

Never Mulligan? Do you mean trade?

 

As mentioned in the guide, you should trade only in situations where it's really benificial to do so, so killing a Northshire Cleric or a Mana Wyrm is usually fine. In situations where it's "If I go face, and they have this card in their hand, that's bad", you should usually go face and just make them have it.

 

Using your Weapons to clear minions while your own minions go face is usually the ideal situation.

What is the idea behind Clockwork Gnome? Aren't there any better choices? I did like 30 games with this deck and so far I have not found any good use of clockwork gnome. I mean... it is better to actually use hero power?

Hi

 

I've been using this deck a fair bit (mainly to climb back up the ranks after doing a quest with a

class I have no decent cards for has dropped me down) and its completely brilliant both at winning and at winning fast, which after a few bouts against a fatigue mage is very welocme.

 

My one quibble is - tracking? The great thing about this deck is that all cards are good cards - throwing two away to get one card doesn't seem to help momentum and you waste two decent cards.

 

if I had 4 weapons (2 glaive and 2 eagle) I would run with 4 weaps and see how it goes - but I don't.

 

You sure tracking is that valuable?

Think like this. The opponet has 5 hp left. You have clockwerk gnome in you hand. Only that card. You draw tracking. You need eaglehorn bow, or killing command to kill him. You use tracking and voila!

Yeah, the example that Cioco gave is a good one, but in more simple terms, this deck plays very little card draw, so there is never going to be a game where you use all 30 cards, when you use Tracking, just imagine the two cards you pass over are near the bottom of your deck, it's functionally the same thing, but you're getting to gain an advantage by having some control over your next card draw.

Thanks for your response! Yes, sorry, I meant trade, not mulligan.

 

Getting to rank 8-11 was pretty easy with this deck, but then seemed to hit a wall with druids and mages. The druids were winning mostly on savage roar and the mages were just freezing me too much for the weapon to come into play. Any idea what I might be doing wrong?

Is anyone going to bring up that the mana curve doesn't match the cards?

It matches.

I have everything in the deck list EXCEPT a 2nd Arcane Golem , and a 2nd Eaglehorn Bow, so I subbed them out with 2 kobra shots. The direct damage is very good, and it can kill all the weak taunt monsters like the iron grizzly or those 1 mana cost taunts from warlock. Kobra shot actually won me the match 2 times out of 8 times I played, and I won 7 matches (for my 100 gold quest) Really rocks, although I've never had to test it against a priest or a warrior. I played against 2 shamans, 3 hunters, 2 warlocks, and 1 mage. I forgot who I lost against one of the warlocks who had a much stronger rush than me.

Hey Sottle!

Thank you for this deck, i really start to understand how this works, also im climbing the ladder pretty fast. What is your opinion on Jungle Phanter? I think it is pretty good, being a safe source of damage, with good stats fits the deck perfectly.

Just wanted to thank you!!

Yeah Jungle Panther is right on the fringe of being good enough I think. It's usually an argument of Animal Companion vs Jungle Panther as talked about in the guide, with the addition of Unleash the Hounds in this deck tipping the scales in favour of Companion, but by all means try out Panther and see if you like it better.

No love for Annoy-O-Tron??

Doesn't really fit in the deck, in my opinion. There are far better and more efficient cards than that.

      Will these three new Treant cards see play in the meta? Or will they come up short like the hand-size cards from The Witchwood?
       
      Three new Treant-themed cards were revealed today by PCGamer:
       

       
      First up we have Dendrologist. The floor on this card is solid, as a 2 Mana 2/3 is passable in a pinch. The ceiling on Dendrologist is higher than you might think, as his Battlecry is quite strong. Druid might have more high-quality spells than any other class in the game (Wild Growth, Nourish, Ultimate Infestation, Branching Paths, Naturalize, and Savage Roar to name a few), which leads me to believe that Dendrologist will be a powerhouse if Druid gets sufficient Treant support in this expansion.
       

       
      3 Mana for 4/4 worth of stats is already a great deal on its own, and the added Treant synergy puts this card over the top. The fact that this card creates two bodies makes it even better in aggro decks that look to go wide and finish with cards like Fungalmancer. This is a very reasonable card to curve into on turn 3, and it hints that the Treant deck will likely be quite aggressive.
       

       
      Finally we get Mulchmuncher, a big fat Mech with Rush and a dangerously tempting Mana reduction effect. We know from experience with Corridor Creeper and Giant cards how strong it can be to play big Minions for low amounts of Mana, but it won't be that easy to reduce Mulchmuncher's cost. If the Mana Treants from Living Mana count as Treants for this card, then I can easily see Mulchmuncher as finisher in an aggressive Treant decks.
      Will these new Treant cards turn Force of Nature and Witchwood Apple into playable cards? Or do you think the Treant cards will fall flat like the hand-size cards from The Witchwood? Let us know in the comment section, and be sure to check out our Boomsday Hub for more spoilers from the upcoming expansion.

      The latest Hearthside Chat with Peter Whalen revealed Supercollider, Flobbidinous Floop, and Whizbang the Wonderful from The Boomsday Project.
       
      In the latest Hearthside Chat, Senior Game Designer Peter Whalen explained some of the themes (science) and inspirations (more science) for The Boomsday Project. In doing so, he spoiled three new incredibly exciting cards. If you're interested in watching the video (which is just 4:59 seconds long), you can do so right here:
       
       
      Card Reveals
       

       
      This card gets an "A" for flavor, as I don't think its possible to come up with a better design for a card called "Supercollider" in a science-themed set.
      This Warrior weapon has the potential to be a 2 or 3 for 1, as it can set up trades quite easily if you attack your opponent's largest minion with it. However, attacking your opponent's largest minion means you will also be dealing plenty of face damage to yourself, making high amounts of armor gain a requirement for putting this card in your deck. For that reason, Supercollider plays excellently with Baku the Mooneater, and I expect it to see play in Odd Warrior decks.
       

       
      Next up is another card with an excellent name, Flobbidinous Floop. This guy provides a Faceless Manipulator-style effect for Druid decks for just 4 Mana, which will almost certainly make him a combo piece in a variety of Druid decks. Between Innervate, Twig of the World Tree, and Biology Project, there will almost certainly a few new OTKs with Flobbidinous Floop. He can also be used in Big Druid decks one turn after playing a huge minion, such as Ysera, Hadronox, or The Lich King, to become a 3/4 copy of a card with a powerful effect. Expect to see plenty of Flobbidinious Floop in the new meta!
       

       
      Next we get Whizbang the Wonderful, which is one of the most unique and exciting cards in the history of Hearthstone. What does he do? Let me show you:
       

       
      Whizbang the Wonderful replaces your entire deck. He replaces your hero, and he names your new deck "Whizbang is Wonderful". When you enter a game with this deck, you will be randomly handed 1 of 18 recent deck recipes by Blizzard at the start of the game.
      Will Whizbang be competitively viable? Almost certainly not, but I think that question is almost entirely missing the point. By adding Whizbang to the game, Blizzard has offered new players a way to access 18 different for just 1600 dust! Though its unlikely these 18 premade decks will be 100% meta optimal, they will almost certainly be viable enough for newer players to climb the earlier ranks while playing a wide variety of decks and learning new cards. This is the closest thing that Blizzard will probably ever do to selling pre-constructed decks (something that many other cards games do), which in my eyes is a major step forward. Will tryhards be disappointed when they open Whizbang? Probably. But not every Legendary minion needs to be a home run for the hardcore audience. Whizbang is the new player's best friend, and will surely add much more joy to the game of Hearthstone than he takes away.
      What do you think about today's spoilers? Will Supercollider see play? Can you find any new OTKs with Flobbidinous Floop? And are you as excited about Whizbang the Wonderful as I am? Let us know in the comments what you think about these new cards, and be sure to check out our Boomsday Hub for more spoilers from the upcoming expansion.

      A callback to Annoy-o-Tron, this new Mech card could be a serious player in the meta.
       
      Episode 2 of "Enter Boom Labs" has revealed another new Magnetic card from The Boomsday Project, called Annoy-o-Module:
       

       
      A callback to Annoy-o-Tron, this guy gains Magnetic and 1/2 worth of stats for just 2 Mana! The stats and keywords this card instantly adds to another Mech seem quite strong when you compare it to Blessing of Kings, which adds 2 more Attack to a minion but does not add Divine Shield and Taunt. This card isn't awful when played on it's own, and it plays well in a deck with Corpsetaker. Annoy-o-Module checks enough for boxes for me, and I full expect it to see play in the upcoming meta.
      Episode 2 of "Enter Boom Labs" is short but sweet, and you can watch the full video right here:
       
       
      Do you think Annoy-o-Module impact the game as much as Annoy-o-Tron did? Let us know in the comment section, and be sure to check out our Boomsday Hub for more spoilers from the upcoming expansion.

      Use Mini-Rag to destroy enemy minions and level up your"Wow!" emote in this week's Tavern Brawl.
       
      In celebration of The Midsummer Fire Festival, this week's Tavern Brawl is all about Ragnaros, Lightlord. Well, Mini-Rag to be more specific:
       

       
      A 2/3 Ragnaros with Immune will start the game on one side of the board. At the end of each turn, Mini-Rag will deal 1 damage to a random target on the other side of the board for each Attack he has, then swap to the other side of the board. Each time he kills an enemy minion he will gain 1 Attack, growing in power as the game progresses.
       

       
      Due to the sudden pressure that Mini-Rag applies to both players, I highly recommend playing an Aggro deck. I used Odd Rogue in my first game to take down an Odd Hunter. You could also play an anti-aggro deck to try and counter all the aggro decks running around, but be sure to play some self-healing such as Branching Paths or Healing Rain.
       

       
      The Tavern Brawl will track how many minion kills that Mini-Rag racks up. After 8, 30, and 60 Minion kills, you will level up the fireworks in your "Wow!" emote. This is a returning Tavern Brawl from last year's festival, and your running total of Mini-Rag kills from last year's festival carries over to this year. Happy hunting!
