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.

      Blizzard's Lead Mission Designer, Dave Kosak, has released a video discussing how Missions will work in Knights of the Frozen Throne.
      Missions are the replacement for Adventures, which everyone will be able to attempt when the new set is released. The idea behind them is to be able to explain the lore behind the cards, without forcing people to do the content who are not interested in it.
      There is a lot of interesting information in the video, but the key takeaway is that there will be an alternate Paladin Hero, Arthas, awarded to anyone who can defeat the Lich King with all nine classes.
      At the end of the video, three more cards are revealed from the upcoming expansion:

      Bolvar is an interesting card in that it will be a 3/7 after it loses its own Divine Shield. This means that it will need to get very little value from its ability in order to be very large indeed. It does feel like a build-around card however, and it might be that Divine Shield Paladin is just not as powerful as current archetypes. There are already plenty of ways to build that style of deck, and none are seeing regular play. I am not sure that Bolvar, Fireblood improves the Divine Shield archetype enough to force it to the forefront.

      Light's Sorrow has some of the same issues that Bolvar has, although it needs to get very few activations over the course of its lifetime to be a playable weapon. I expect this to be tested heavily in the first few days of the new meta.

      Corpsetaker seems like a fun card. It should be easy enough to gain most of the keywords, which will make it a very difficult card to deal with. It should be noted that the keywords are only gained if those words are on the cards remaining in the deck. Depending on how easy it turns out to be to get every keyword onto the card, this could be a reasonable card in slower decks where the Taunt and Lifesteal are relevant.

      The twenty-third and twenty-fourth cards have been revealed. Both are Epic minions, one for Hunter and one for Druid.
      At seven Mana, Stitches Archer, or Abominable Bowman Archer has to compete with Volcanosaur for the slot. It also seems that Savannah Highmane does the same thing more reliably.

      (Source: Hearthpwn)
      That being said, there are plenty of Deathrattle options available for N'Zoth, the Corruptor to bring back in Hunter now, and if a slow enough deck can be made to work, this would be a great fit in such a deck.
      Fatespinner
      Fatespinner introduces a new mechanic, which should add an element of intrigue to the game. The lack of disguised information has been a complaint of many players since the dawn of Hearthstone. Fatespinner takes a first step into that world, and if successful as a mechanic, it should add a new layer of complexity and bluff to the game.

      As for the card itself, it has poor stats for its Mana cost, and seems to not have the greatest of effects. However, this is Druid we are talking about, and Druid having the ability to deal 3 damage to all minions, albeit slowly, should not be treated lightly. Sherazin, Corpse Flower was underrated by reviewers in the previous set, and is somewhat similar in that it was hard to assess how much value would be gained from its ability. I feel that this card might see play for the first Deathrattle ability, but more importantly, the very existence of a new secret mechanic should be good for the game as the design team explore it further.

      Professor Putricide has been revealed by DDaHyoNi.
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out on our Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion hub.
      Bring it On!

      This card is quite the surprise, and the second in the set seemingly designed to punish spell-heavy/combo decks. Whether this is viable depends entirely on the meta at hand, of course, but there is intricate synergy at play here between Dirty Rat and Shield Slam; pull a minion out, thus avoiding the downside of reducing its cost, then slam it right in for a mighty 10 damage. Could it also be used to bait board swarms for an impending Brawl? I like it.
      Coldwraith

      Considering mages are very lacking in the 3-drop department, we may be looking at a new mage staple here, especially considering how popular Frostbolt and Primordial Glyph currently are. The revealed mage death knight card also seems to promote the use of Water Elemental, furthering your ability to get value out of the Freeze-related effect. Might Freeze mages even consider running this? Probably, since their game plan is all about... well, Freezing and drawing. Pretty cool card, if I may.

      Naiman_hs just revealed Voodoo Hexxer.
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out on our Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion hub.
      Voodoo Hexxer

      Water Elemental's big sister, Voodoo Hexxer is very likely to find a place in any control-oriented shaman deck. Along the new weapon, it seems like the shaman class is being pushed towards Freezing. Stat-wise, Voodoo Hexxer is not all that great for cost, but it fulfills its purpose: it's hard to remove, it'll stall decks that rely on swarming, and even works against weapons. In control matchups, Voodoo Hexxer becomes a form of pseudo removal, especially when coupled with the aforementioned weapon.

      Bearshark and Hadronox were just revealed!
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out on our Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion hub.
      Bearshark

      Houndmaster should probably be renamed to Bearsharkmaster because it curves out just perfectly into an Elusive minion that's going to be difficult to remove. Since hunters don't use spells to buff their own minions, Elusive isn't actually going to be a downside. This seems like it'll make for a solid addition to any hunter deck.
      Hadronox

      The current rendition of Ramp druid runs 5 to 6 Taunt minions, but plays very greedy with cutting long-time staples of the class such as Druid of the Claw. Could this fit the deck? I don't know; Hadronox requires you to have drawn your few Taunters and played them, something Ramp doesn't always get to do by nature. Ramping this minion is actually pretty bad because its Deathrattle simply won't trigger then. Let's see if another Taunt minion ends up being printed for druid; otherwise, I can't say this card will be popular.
