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 latest update, Patch 7.1, is live. This update includes changes to Arena, the long awaited balance changes, and the introduction of Un'Goro pre-purchase.
      The entire list for the notes can be seen at the bottom of this post, but here are the highlights.
      Balance and Ladder Changes
      As announced previously, Small-Time Buccaneer is now a 1/1 minion. Spirit Claws now costs 2 Mana. You will no longer be able to fall below certain Ranks on ladder. Those ranks are 15,10, and 5.
      Arena Changes
      Also now live are the announced Arena changes.
      Arena has seen a major overhaul, with the format being Standard only. Commons, and neutral Basic and Classic cards will be less frequent. Spells will be offered more often. If you have Golden cards in your collection, they will appear in your draft.
      Other Changes
      The keyword Poisonous has been added to replace "Destroy any minion damaged by this minion". This will apply to Pit Snake, Emperor Cobra, Maexxna, and Patient Assassin. From the pieces we have seen regarding Un'Goro, it will probably also apply to Plants in the new set, and possibly some other cards as well.
      There have been changes to the matchmaking system. Presumably in line with the discussion with Iksar last week. If so, these changes will mainly impact Legendary players.
      Blizzard
      Ranked Play Upon achieving certain milestones in Ranked Play, it will no longer be possible to lose ranks beyond those milestones for that season. The milestones are Rank 20, 15, 10, 5, and Legend. Arena Creating decks for the Arena will now feature Standard cards only. Arena runs that were started prior to the patch will still include Wild cards. Rares, Epics, and Legendaries will be offered more frequently during Arena deckbuilding. Spells will now show up with a higher frequency. Neutral Basic / Classic cards will appear less often. If you own a Golden version of a card, the first copy you draft will be Golden. If you own multiple Golden copies of a card, all copies you draft will be Golden. Balance Updates Small-time Buccaneer’s health reduced from 2 to 1. The mana cost of Spirit Claws increased from 1 to 2. GeneralNew keyword: Poisonous - Minions with Poisonous will destroy any minion they inflict damage to.  Pit Snake, Patient Assassin, Emperor Cobra, and Maexxna have been updated with the new keyword. Added some memory optimizations. Improved matchmaking for new players. We are testing an update to the account creation process for mobile players. This will minimize the overhead associated with creating a new Battle.net account, and will be available in limited release. Maximum in-game music volume has been capped in order to retain the best audio quality. [Android] We made some optimizations to Android distribution, allowing for a smaller install size and smoother patching in the future. Bug Fixes Resolved inconsistencies in the way that Small Time Buccaneer’s Attack interacts with effects such as those generated by Humility, Keeper of Uldaman, and Crazed Alchemist. Resolved an issue where a Kazakus potion spell cards could appear blank when copied by a minion or spell effect. Knuckles will now correctly use its effect when under the effects of Misdirection. Addressed an issue with the interaction of Wrath’s card draw timing in conjunction with Daring Reporter. Snipe will now correctly trigger after Potion of Polymorph. Djinni of Zephyrs will now correctly copy spells buffed by spell damage. Bouncing Blade will now correctly continue bouncing after clearing a Divine Shield. Resolved an issue where seasonal reward cards could take a while to show up in the Collection Manager. Searching the Collection Manager with a class name will now correctly display Tri-Class cards. Resolved issues that could slow or stop payment authentication when using the in-game Shop. Fixed many minor visual issues and some card text inconsistencies. (source)

      The next expansion will be Journey to Un'goro. 
      Blizzard have released a short video revealing that, as speculated, the next expansion will be Journey to Un'goro. Four cards from the next set were shown in the reveal video.
      The expansion will be released in early April, and will contain 135 cards. It is set in Un'Goro, an area filled with dinosaurs, with a volcano at the heart of the region. The launch of the set will trigger the start of The Year of the Mammoth.

      Volcano, adding to the flavour of the set, was the first card to be revealed. It is similar to Elemental Destruction, but not as reliable. While on the subject of Elementals, the word Elemental is going to be used as a tribal name. Many cards will be tagged as Elemental, which presumably will allow for cards that interact with them to be printed, along the same lines as Beast has currently.

      The image above only tells half of the story. After Pyros dies as a 6/6, it returns back to hand yet again as a 10/10 that costs 10! This mechanic might imply that there is a focus on value as opposed to tempo, although of course one card is a meaningless sample size! There could also be a Quest to play a certain number of Elemental cards in a game, although it seems unlikely that it would be a Mage Quest.

      Adapt is a new keyword, along the lines of discover. There are ten different powers to choose from. Taunt, Windfury, Divine Shield, Cannot be targeted, +3 Attack, Deathrattle: Summon two 1/1 Plants are the six shown in the video. We've also been warned that plants are not just plants, so we can only speculate on what a 1/1 Plant might do.

      One of the more interesting features of the new expansion is the Quest mechanic. Quests start in your opening hand and have a big reward for completion. It is displayed in the same place as Secrets, however both players can see the Quest, and how close it is to being completed.

      As you can see, the rewards are very powerful
      More reveals will be made on March 17th. Until then, we will just have to speculate as to what else lies in Un'Goro.

      Iksar has confirmed that the Matchmaking in Legend Ranks has been changed.
      As stated in our previous article, Legendary players have been noticing that in the last few days that they have been matched with players much closer to their own rank than usual. There was some confusion regarding this, as Iksar had not been made aware of the changes, but he has now confirmed that there are definitely changes in place.
      It is hard to precisely evaluate community feeling on the the new system, especially as I personally think they're a step in the right direction, but there are some players who are not keen on the changes. RayC and Xzirez have been the two highest profile players so far to disagree with the change. The issues that people against it have can be summarised as follows: Counter-Queuing: Many top Legends do not like counter-queuing, which is where you change your deck to try to counter your opponent. With the new system meaning you can often play the same person several times in a row, counter-queuing will become an important part of the game.
      Early Legend Advantage: People opposed to the changes claim that it overly favours the players who reach Legend early on. The older system made it easier to catch up at the end of the season.
      Win Trading: Due to the increased chance of playing against the same opponent, it is now easier to cover your tracks if you lose to a friend many times in a row to boost their ranking.
      There does seem to be a majority of players who support the new system however. The ladder system has been a cause of much debate for a long time now, and these changes, alongside the recent addition of ladder floors, seem to show that at the very least, ladder is currently a high priority for Blizzard to get right.
