What about an explosive trap to improve mad scientists & eaglehorn bow to be more aggressive instead of hunter's mark?

The deck already has two Eaglehorns. You can play a third trap if you like, I personally don't like playing more traps than Scientists, but many people do.

I've read a similar comment from you before about not wanting to play more Scientists that Traps/Secrets. Why do you think that? Is it just a personal preference or is there an in-game reason (such as card advantage, etc)? I'm just curious because I prefer to have more Secrets than Scientists so i don't end up with a useless Scientist in my hand after both Secrets have been played (or I end up with both cards in my hand). I know that you're a much better player than me so I wanted to understand why you do that.

If you play more Secrets than Scientists, you draw a Secret before a Scientist on average, that's not what you want to be doing. You want your secrets to be played for free.

Solid deck.  Still trying to decide on the Quickshots.  I tend to like to use 1 Cult Master and 1 Snake Trap.  Between Snake Trap and UTH, you have a good chance for some card draw.

Quick Shot isn't for draw, you very rarely draw a card with it in this deck. It's just for removal/tempo and to add options for burst in the late-game.

You can play a Cult Master if you want some draw, but this deck is most commonly played without any.

something to substitute for quick shot? i am planning on getting the first brm wing but is there like some temporary substitute that i can use? or some other good card to fit in ? like a loot hoarder for draw and a arcane shot for dmg or flare or something?

If you don't have Quickshots, i'd play 2 copies of more early game beasts instead, like Scavenging Hyena, Dire Wolf, or River Croc, then cut one Piloted Shredder and play two Houndmaster instead and go more towards the Beast synergy idea.

i think it's a excellent deck, got me from rank 19 to 13 if you really take your time with it and learn how to play it, then you will get a pretty good win to loss ratio. 5/5 thumbs up smile.png

*wow I keep trying to post while not signed in*

So, as terrible as this idea may be, I want to run double Kezan Mystic in this deck. Are there cards you think would be reasonable swaps for Kezan, or would I be better off building a sub-par control hunter?

My first thought was to remove one Webspinner and one Quick Shot, but I'm thinking that would slow the deck down too much.

Maybe just remove one Webspinner and run a single Kezan? Double may be absurd. Just so many secrets out there. T-T

Any thoughts, by anyone, are appreciated. Many thanks.

EDIT: Would flare be a viable option?

Many people do choose to use a Kezan, just put in on curve in place of a Shredder, you just have to accept having a weaker 4-drop in the matchups where it's not hitting.

Two would definitely be overkill though.

Hi Sottle, I have all the cards except the mad scientists. There's some replacement possible?

 

Greetings.

Not really, Mad Scientist is extremely important. You can play River Croc, Dire Wolf, or Scavenging Hyena, but they are all a lot weaker than Mad Scientist.

I switched the Houndmaster for a BGH, since it wasn't that useful in my first games.
Any thoughts about it?

Excellent deck. Thanks for this!

Able to win against most other decks with this deck.

 

Any tips against handlocks?  If I try to slow down my face damage to reduce the impact of their molten giants, they are able to get back into the game with their healbots and taunted mountain giants/twilight drakes and are quickly overwhelming the board.

 

I am considering adding one of this - Hunter's mark/ BGH/2nd ironbeak owl to overcome this and swapping out the houndmaster. Let me know if this is a good idea and if so which one would you suggest?

Other less favored options I am considering are bestial wrath(on highmane) and cobra shot (more face dmg)

      Anton "Dvck" Lund found his way out of a jam on the ladder. Can you?
      Dvck and Aleco discuss the importance of planning ahead, understanding the meta, and knowing when to pivot your role in a matchup.
      The player interviews I've done with RayC and TerrenceM have been some of the most fun and informative episodes of "What's the Move?", so I was very excited when Anton "Dvck" Lund reached out to me via reddit with a play from a recent game of his. Playing as Combo Dragon Priest, Dvck was able to find his way out of a tough spot against Murloc Paladin. Can you do the same?
      In this week's episode, Dvck and I discuss the importance of planning ahead, understanding the meta, and knowing when to pivot your role in a matchup. For what ended up being a relatively short episode by "WTM" standards, I was pleasantly surprised by how much we were able to break down together so quickly. The interview with Dvck was as fun as it was informative, so I hope to have him back on the show soon! If you're interested in watching some high-legend gameplay, be sure to tune into Dvck's stream on twitch.tv.
      You can look forward to a few more episodes about the Hearthstone World Championships in the coming weeks, but I always welcome submissions and suggestions for future episodes. Did you have a favorite play from the world championships? Feel free to link me the VOD here on Icy Veins or send me a message on twitter @Aleco_P.
      Thanks for watching!

      Hey guys, I was just wondering if anyone knew the best tier combination currently for survival hunter. Are we supposed to be running full 4-set from Antorus and keeping 2-set from Tomb, vice versa, etc. I took a little break from the game for a month, and didn't want to have the same problem coming back I did with ToS.

      Kolento and ShtanUdachi found themselves in nearly identical situations at the world championships - but did they make the same decisions?
      Episode 14 of "What's the Move?" discusses the importance of being mana efficient in the early game, as well as the relationship between speed and value.

      The Hearthstone World Championships were full of incredible plays, sticky situations, and valuable lessons to be learned from the best players on the planet. There were far too many great plays to analyze in a single video, so for the next few episodes of "What's the Move?" I'll be breaking down all of my favorite plays from the World Championship weekend.
      To kick things off we have a pair of Tempo Rogue vs. Highlander Priest matchups featuring Kolento and ShtanUdachi. Both players drew nearly identical opening hands, but did they did make same decisions?
      If you managed to spot a particularly tricky or interesting play from the recent World Championships, please feel free to link it in the comment section below! I'd love to break down as many viewer-submitted topics as I can in the coming weeks and months, and I have little doubt that I may have missed some of the most fascinating plays from the tournament during my initial viewing.
      Wishing you all the best of luck in the post-nerf meta!

      Welcome to the post-Corridor Creeper meta.
      Hearthstone Update 10.2 is now live worldwide and it's a big one!
      The first change it brings are the nerfs to four cards that have terrorised dominated the meta up until now. Bonemare now costs 8 mana, Patches the Pirate no longer has Charge, Raza the Chained makes the Hero Power cost (1) instead of (0) and Corridor Creeper has been butchered down to 2 attack. You can read Aleco's interesting opinion piece on Blizzard's nerf policy here.
      The second big addition of this patch is the Ranked Play update, which will take effect on March 2018. Players will now drop only 4 ranks with each monthly reset, all ranks will have 5 stars and you will only need to win 5 Ranked games to earn the monthly card back.
      The Year of the Mammoth Bundle is also finally available on the Shop. For $19.99 or 19.99 EUR, you can get 30 packs - 10 for each of the Year of the Mammoth expansions (Un'Goro, KFT, K&C). Don't forget that the Quest for Packs event is still ongoing and an addition has been made to the grand prize winner reward: $1.200 (read here for more info)!
      Lastly, the patch introduces the Wildfest event. From February 19 to March 11, Hearthstone is going Wild! Initially, you will be able to draft cards in Arena mode that are exclusive to Wild. Second, even though Tavern Brawl is usually on Wild format, there will be two special Wild Brawls. The first one is called "Venture Into the Wild" and it will just contain premade Wild decks for each class. The second one, "The Wild Brawlisseum", is basically a Wild Heroic Tavern Brawl, but with a major improvement: the first run will be free for everyone. You can read more about Wildfest here.
      Below you can read the patch notes, which describe all the updates as well as various bug fixes. A massive change is that the timer for the first two turns will now be shorter!
