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.

I ran out of cards in my hand by turn #6 and got crushed soon thereafter. Would love to see more card draws.

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

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?

Consider adding a Mr. Jeeves? I always find myself with little to no cards in my hand.

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.

      The Europe Spring Playoffs and Championship took place over the weekend of May 20-21, which decided not only the new Europe Champion, but also the four players who would represent Europe at the Global Spring Championship in Shanghai next month.
      After seven rounds of Swiss, the top eight players cut to a knockout phase. The results of which were as follows:
        Hoej beat   FibEli3
        Neirea beat   INER
        Rdu beat   Casie
        Kolento beat   StanCifka
      This means that Hoej, Neirea, Rdu, and Kolento will represent Europe in the Global Championship. The top eight being so strong is a sign that the metagame is in a healthy place. All of the players were already known to be among the best in Europe, and despite their lineups differing substantially, they were still able to make it through.
      Hoej went on to take the title, beating Kolento 3-0 in the final. Hoej has been touted as one of the best players in Europe for some time, but traditionally has brought Control decks to major events. This time around, he brought a very aggressive lineup, and was rewarded for his willingness to adapt his style to the meta.
      The deck archetypes that each player brought to the event are listed below:
      Hoej: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
      Kolento: Jade Druid, Midrange Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Neirea: Jade Druid, Discover Mage, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Rdu: Aggro Druid, Face Hunter, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      The next four players to qualify for the Global Championship will be decided next week, with the Americas Spring Championships.

      The Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) European Spring Playoffs will take place this weekend, 20-21 May 2017.
      This will be the first playoff event since Journey to Un'Goro was released, and so if anyone has saved any surprise deck tech, this is the event where it will be revealed.
      The top 64 point earners, and ties, from the EU server will be joined by 8 Tavern Hero tournament qualifiers for the event, which will be played in esports bars across Europe. If you want to attend one of the events to cheer on your local favourite, the list of locations can be found here. There will be side events for anyone wishing to attend, with Blizzard prizes available for winners, and the Power Core cardback for all attendees.
      The point standings, showing the top 64, can be found here. As usual the event is stacked with many of the big names from the region. The top four will advance to the HCT Spring Global finals next month.

      There's a new update arriving in the coming weeks and it's going to bring a much requested feature to HS: completing quests while playing with your friends! The other big feature coming with this update is importing decklists, allowing you to easily copy and share your favorite decks without resorting to screenshots or outside sites! No specific ETA has been given and if you want to know all the details check out the announcement post below.
      Blizzard (source)
      Hearthstone’s upcoming update has a lot of cool stuff in it, but we wanted to call special attention to a couple of features that we’re particularly excited about. We think you’ll like them too!

      Friends Forever
      When the new Hearthstone update arrives, you’ll be able to complete quests in Friendly Challenges! Just issue a Friendly Challenge to someone on your Friends list and rack up credit for nearly any quest you can receive.
      Last year, the Friendly Feud allowed players to complete quests when they played with a friend. You gave us a ton of positive feedback about that event, and a lot of you asked us to have Friendly Feuds more often. We thought that was a good idea, so we took it a step further!
      There are some minor caveats. For example, any quests that can’t be completed as part of a Friendly Challenge aren’t eligible, such as those that require you to play vs The Innkeeper or watch a match. Most everything else is fair game though, so now you’ll have a reason to make friends with a recent opponent that isn’t just to send them a compliment.
      Sharing is Caring
      You’ll soon be able to easily copy and share decklists with Deck Importing! No more screen shotting decklists, or staring at a web page as you carefully build a deck, card by card. Trying—and sharing—a new decklist will be as simple as copy and paste!

      Here’s how it works:
      If your deck is already full, when you select the Hero portrait at the top of a deck in your collection, you’ll see a Copy button*. Press that button and your decklist will be copied to your clipboard. If you paste your decklist into a text document, it will look like this:
      Click to view sample decklist. See that conveniently highlighted ‘code’ near the bottom? That code also works on its own, making it easier to share a decklist with friends in chat or social media.
      Importing a decklist is easy. When you go to create the new deck, Hearthstone will “know” when you’ve got a valid decklist on your clipboard, so you’ll be asked if you’d like to create a new deck with the one you’ve got copied. Then you can watch your new deck be built before your eyes. You can also import decklists to Tavern Brawls!
      Don’t have all the cards a deck requires? No worries! In that case, it works just like a deck recipe. Any cards you don’t already own will appear insubstantial and you can select them for suggested replacements. You might also notice that your golden and non-golden cards now stack in decklists too!

      Deck Importing is great for finding and sharing new decks, but it’s also helpful for managing your library of decks. Save the code for decklists you rarely use, and when you’re ready to play one again, just copy and import it.
      The new update including these features will arrive in the coming weeks. We’re super excited about them, and we can’t wait to hear what you think! 
      * Desktop users can use ctrl+c to copy a decklist (you’ll get a confirmation when your copy is successful), then ctrl+v when viewing My Decks to import a decklist.
