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.

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.

      Hallow's End is going to last from October 17 until October 31.
      As we've already discussed, you can log in to enjoy the spooky festivities and receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron.
      You will also get a free Arena entry ticket in order to test your mettle in the Dual Class Arena. Pick a Hero, choose the Hero Power of a second Hero and try to make the perfect mix with the combined might of both Heroes' class cards.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end: Monster Smash (October 17-22) and The Headless Horseman Rides Again (October 24 - 29)!
      Lastly, for a limited time you can purchase the new Paladin hero, Sir Annoy-o, as a Bundle along with 20 Witchwood packs at the price of $19.99 or 19.99 EUR. This mighty new hero even has his own backstory which you can read here.
      Later today, we should also see the balance changes go live.

      Various bosses from The Witchwood's Monster Hunt are ready to battle it out in this week's brand new Tavern Brawl.
      This is the first special Tavern Brawl that we will see during this year's Hallow's End.
      You just queue up and you get assigned a random boss from the Monster Hunt. Some of these bosses include:
      Azalina Soulthief (Hero Power: 2 mana - Summon three 1/1 Wisps) Blood Witch Greta (Passive Hero Power: Spells cost Health instead of Mana) Brushwood Centurion (Hero Power: 3 mana - All minions attack random enemy minions) Chupacabran (Hero Power: 1 mana - Give a friendly minion Lifesteal) Plaguemaster Rancel (Hero Power: 2 mana - Deal 2 damage to a minion. If it survives, give it Poisonous) Shudderwock (Passive Hero Power - All Battlecries trigger twice) Winslow Tobtock (Hero Power: 2 mana - Each player shuffles their hand into their decks and draws that many cards) Wharrgarbl (Hero Power: 2 mana - Draw 3 Murlocs from your deck) Experiment 3C It's not sure how many bosses there are available, but they certainly have similar decks as during the PvE adventure. It might be worth checking our Monster Hunt guide to refresh your memory on some of their abilities or just experience them in action!

      The update will take effect on October 18.
      Well, the balance changes were smaller than expected as only three cards were affected this time.
      As expected, Giggling Inventor was affected as it now costs 7 mana, up from 5. The team actually considered it too powerful for 6 mana, which raises the question why it was 5 mana in the first place. Anyway, it still remains an odd card if this is still relevant.

      Now, a big and unexpected change was Mana Wyrm being raised to 2 mana. The iconic Classic minion has undergone the Tunnel Trogg treatment and after 4+ years of power, it is ready to retire.

      And a Wild change to alleviate the devastating Druid combo: Aviana will now cost 10 mana. This means she can't be played at the same turn as Kun the Forgotten King and Juicy Psychmelon won't be able to draw both Kun the Forgotten King and Aviana with it.

      The update will go live on October 18th with the weekly reset. What do you guys think about the changes?

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!
