nice deck,currently using it when i feel like cancering people around.

 

 

 

do you think the deck is actually a new hunter archetype or that the reason it's currently working is the "surprise factor" provided by people thinking you are face hunter and wasting removal on your weaker cards and that it will die down when the community gets used to it?

I think it's just the best Hunter deck right now. Whether it will die down as the Meta reacts to it, yes, it certainly will, as any deck does. But it's an archetype that will remain in rotation for time to come, phasing in and out when it's appropriate.

The idea that people are wasting removal on your little guys is valid, but the deck has so much early pressure that they kind of have to. If they sit around waiting for Highmane to appear before spending their removal, they're just going to die to you playing Face Hunter style.

As with most decks that you have constructed I went 1-4. I never seem to get a good win rate with your decks and I end up having to swap out cards or adjusting it before it actually does ok. I lost to two face hunters whose explosive traps clear my board and also put them ahead in damage. It makes me question the value of having freezing trap (ie when I trade a scientist early and get a freezing trap only for it to be wasted on a leper gnome). 

Maybe it's RNG and I'm not playing the deck right but definitely this deck does not work for me out of the 5 games I have played with it.

Face Hunter is a bad matchup, it happens. If you're facing a bunch of Face Hunter play a different deck.

The guide explicitly addresses how to use your Hero Power to stretch out your cards, card draw is just too slow in this kind of deck. If you release your grip on the pressure for one turn to draw cards, your opponent with get to fight back into the game, which is not what you want.

This deck is good if you successfully fool your opponent in thinking you have only normal face hunter cards, but my win rate was really bad against facehuntrs and aggro, so I put in one explosive trap.

 

After some matches, could be my fault or my play style, I noticed a better winning rate adding to a normal face hunter loatheb and one savannah, nothing else

I think I'll use deadly shot instead of quickshot as I have only 1 bow and need the other arcane dust for Savannah Highmanes and arcane golem

I do not have Mad Scientiest, what should i replace them with?

Mad scientist is a key card, you should just craft them.

Yeah, Mad Scientist is stupidly good, there is no viable replacement. It just weakens the deck significantly.

First deck I've used as a hunter just to get a daily reward and it was cheap. Got a win streak and it was fun to play. Thanks.

Don't know if it's just me, but it seems Patron Warrior is a huge Problem for this Deck due to lots of 1- or 2-attack minions the Warrior can exploit. Any suggestions how to play against these Decks?

The deck doesn't need card draw, your Hero Power functions as your card draw. Every turn you draw a spell that deals 2 damage to your opponent's face, that's exactly what you want in this deck, and you should be using it as much as possible to stretch out your cards. This is a point that is addressed in the guide.

i would just add one more owl and save them for taunted up giants.handlock isn't really frequent enough to worry too much about it though.

Having great success with this deck but having trouble w/ control Warlock.  Any suggestions on how to play this deck against that?

It depends on the type of Warlock, there are two main types of Control Warlocks right now, Handlock, and Malygos Lock.

Against Handlock, you should aim to build a board and leave that at a life total where their Molten Giants don't have too much of an impact. So be aware of what you can deal with, how much Mana they have, and how much their Giants will cost. If you can't beat one Molten and Taunt, don't lower them to that life total. If you can beat 1 Giant, but not two, then you can afford to lower them a bit more. Molten Giant and Shadowflame is the other option to keep in mind.

Against Malygos lock (which you can identify early by cards like Imp Gang Boss, Implosion, Blackwing Technician etc.) you just need to be as aggressive as possible, and play the deck more like Face Hunter, since they play a lot less Taunt, and no Molten Giants when compared to Handlock.

Hello, I've been playing this deck for like a month now, but I'm having trouble with certain cards. How are you ever supposed to trade efficiently when Haunted Creeper only has 1 attack? And is it ok to play a turn 1 abusive sergeant on an empty board? By the way I always lose because of drawing Freezing Trap, my starting hand is like 2x Freezing Trap and Mad Scientist and I'm just like facepalm and then concede.

I've had success with dropping Abusive Sargeant turn 1 if thats my only option. 

As far as Haunted Creeper, Coin + haunted creeper turn 1, followed by glaivezooka turn 2 works well.

      A new series of posts in the official forums will shed some light into the inner workings of the Hearthstone team. Welcome to Tavern Talk!
      In this first installment, three questions are answered. The first has to do with additional rewards for players who have earned a Golden Hero with every class. Unfortunately, no extra rewards are planned since the team wants new features or rewards to be obtainable by 10% or more of the playerbase.
      Then, we have an update on the new player experience. Team 5 wants to add additional ranks above rank 25 for new players, so they can mostly face each other in their first steps in the ranked ladder. You will be able to only progress forward in these ranks, similarly to what already happens from rank 25 to 20.
      Lastly, we have a double question about using alternate card art and reprinting cards. The team doesn't like the idea of alternate card art, since it makes sense that players associate and remember a specific card from its art. Reprinting cards is something that has been discussed already and it's something they might do in the not-so-near future after careful consideration.

      Ever wondered what goes on behind the closed doors of the tavern? Ava and the crew’s antics aside, the Hearthstone development team works hard on a myriad of tasks to bring you the game you know and love so well. More than that, we also make the time to read about the different issues and questions the community brings to light each day. Welcome to Hearthstone Tavern Talk, where we’ll share with you answers to some of the questions we see in our community!
      Are there any additional rewards for players who have achieved a Golden Hero in every class?
      Usually when we add new features or rewards we like to make something that can be obtained by 10% or more of our players. Only very few of our players have the 9 Golden Heroes, and we feel that’s already pretty awesome by itself.
      Do you have any changes planned for the new player experience?
      We have some small ladder changes that we would like to do at some point, specifically targeted at new players when they first enter the game. The change will add some additional ranks above rank 25 that new players can play through before having to play more invested players. There will only be forward advancement through those ranks, so even if they lose, no one will be able to drop back down.
      What are your thoughts on alternate card art or reprints of cards from earlier sets?
      Alternate card art is something we have avoided because players almost always use art to recognize a card and instantly know what it does. Good gameplay is very important to us so we have avoided adding multiple pieces of art for a single card.
      Reprints are something that we have discussed in the past, but we would want to do so only after careful consideration. We don’t have any specific plans for this in the near future.
      See you at the next edition of Hearthstone Tavern Talk!

      This is the second time this Brawl appears.
      The trend of Tavern Brawls themed after Death Knight Hero Powers continue: last week we had Rise of the Zombeasts, now we have Shadow Reflection.
      In this constructed Brawl, you can craft a deck of any size with cards from your collection. The rest of the deck will consist of Shadow Reflections. Decks consisted of 30 cards (and thus with no Shadow Reflections) can still work, given that Odd Paladin has reportedly been successful (and a total fun breaker).
      Judging from the previous time this Brawl was around, Aggro and OTK decks seems to be more favoured. Some decks that had success were Aggro Mage or Ice Lance Mage, Combo Priest with Radiant Elemental, Hunter with Mechwarper and Metaltooth Leaper and Quest Rogue. This time around a new Warrior deck, which mostly relies on Bring It On!, has surfaced to counter all the Priest Mind Blast madness.
      Good luck and have fun!
