"This Midrange Hunter build, put together originally by Team Archon's Orange"

Reading is fun!

The guides on this site are a mixture, some are my own builds, some are from other players. If i can't improve on a build, i'm not going to just change one card to make it "mine", i'm going to post the deck that I think is optimal. The work I do here is putting the time into the guides, and putting the time into testing and verifying that random lists posted on the internet are actually built well.

If you want a random assorted list of people's "original" decks with no standard of quality, no explanations, and no consistency, there's plenty of other sites you can use.

Like I said, no offence intended. Don't take it too personal. But the thing is that on the guide there's written "This deck is presented to you by Sottle, a professional Hearthstone player from the UK who competes for H2k.". You should at least write some credits to the original author of the deck. But, like I said, it is just my personal opinion.

And, by the way, I find it very interesting that, on other guides, sometimes I've been waiting weeks to receive an answer for a question I've write, and for some questions I received no answer 'till today. And after I criticize one time, in some hourse there's already a replay from ya.

"No offence."

My bad, I just saw "This Midrange Hunter build, put together originally by Team Archon's Orange". X_X

Dahh, don't curse me. Didn't saw it. Ignore the credits thing I've said.

I mean, you've missed it in the guides, and missed it when I literally just posted it in my reply? That's a lot of missing dude.

I dunno why you're suddenly on some sort of bizarre crusade against me here, but in regards to the other part of your message, I have over 1000 posts in these forums, if you'd like to go through those and see how many of them are helping people and answering questions, and how many are responding to criticism, be my guest.

Anyway, lets just drop this topic now and let this thread resume being what it's here for, discussing the deck.

Hi,
what can I use instead of Dr. Boom? Another endgame threat?

Hi,

what can I use instead of Dr. Boom? Another endgame threat?

man having finally gotten around to crafting dr boom,i can safely tell you that nothing compares.i used ragnaros as a replacement for quite some time,and it worked fine, but nothing feels the same as dropping boom on turn 7 and making your chances to win the game go up by like 20%.

 

i know everyone knows dr boom is overpowered as hell,but i literally just started playing druid with it yesterday and went straight to rank 1 and 3 stars from rank 3 while having played like 4 or 5 games as a druid before in my hearthstone life.granted,the card might be better in druid than on this deck,but i'm sure the feel of dropping it on turn 7 is still there.

Yeah, Boom is just so good in this deck in particular, you don't want to go too much further up the curve to find a threat. So without Boom, i'd actually just pack in another Beat like 2nd Tiger or Kodo.

I run an extremely similar build, but am personally running between 0-1 Webspinners (depending on my mood), so as to max the chances of Elekk joust. I know, I know, it's sacrilege to warp a deck for joust, especially just one card, but I find Elekk to be basically all-or-nothing, in that he either is amazing probability-wise and fits perfectly in a deck, or he is a useless Crocolisk if there are a bajillion low-cost creatures for him to find. The tempo clips along nicely without the 'Spinners, anyhow. Hunter has ways to create value in the early-game without the use of minions, so if we're using Elekk, it's probably worth only having THE MOST CRUCIAL low (1-3) cost minions in our deck.

Subbing in Feign Death in place of the Webspinner, given our wide range of deathrattles naturally hanging out on the board (creepers, spinners, scientists, shredders, boombots, highmane, and I've a sludge belcher instead of the tiger) - at 1 deathrattle  hit it's a breakeven card, and at 2 we're up in value (though working off boombots or highmane gets the value off a single card). It's free CA in a deck that is essentially stacked for DR.

 

That said, why would I run 1 Webspinner instead of 0 or 2? Because I can't deny that a 1/1 w/CA on turn 1 is a great play, so having one to enable that turn-1 play is nice, and can somewhat offset the negative returns of the Elekk interaction. Since we'd be mulliganing for the early Spinner, the first provides a lot more value than the second, from a "relative probability gain" perspective. Plus, a 1 cost w/DR combos well with that Feign Death I'm using. Still testing whether I prefer one or none in my build, that'll probably just be some playing.

I'm also considering dropping the Creepers. I reallyreally like them as an oncurve 2 play, and they work well with the Feign Death, but again it's coming back to that Elekk interaction, and of all my 2drops I most prize the Mad Scientist. But given that they are such a sticky way to keep a Beast on board, it's hard to justify pulling them.

Why bother with this at all, instead of just dropping the Elekk? Because Elekk is so very much value, and so very awesome of a play, that I think it's worth tweaking a deck just a hair to make the most of him. If I like the DR theme enough though, I'll get over myself and try pulling the Elekks, so as to max the value of the DR synergy.

How do you feel about ram wranglers? They are run in some of the other midrange lists out there right now.

I see so many guys saying wow King's Elekk is such a good card. But, since I've started including them, I think I won the joust not more than 2 times. And I played many matches. I always, ALWAYS, I SWEAR, get Webspinner. I don't understand why. Just 2 mins ago I played a match. I had coin and 2 elekks. Coined Elekk, got webspinner. Turn 2, Elekk, Webspinner. Enough! It's time to include the Knife Jugglers back. I can get more value out of 'em.

Then Ram Wranglers. Played 'em, got the harpy 1/1, how was it called, 3 times. 3 TIMES!

Either I'm cursed, either the RNG system is broken as hell!

i find it odd to see sottle using joust cards.i mean,if you watch his stream you know that minions with joust are just vanilla minions when he's the one using them.

Even if you don't get to draw a card, it is still a 3/2 beast with Houndmaster and Skill Command synergy, which is good enough to be included. If you win the joust one in five times, it is still a good card.

thoughts on chucking a flare in the deck for secret paladin?

the amount of paladins and shamans going about makes this deck need 2x unleash the hounds and maybe the deadscale.

What about Gormok the Impaler instead of Stranglethorn Tiger?  I think it would make a great addition as it wouldn't be hard to have four minions on the board.

Really interesting deck. I subbed Glaivezooka for Quick Shot (don't have brm) and Gahz'rilla for Dr.Boom and honestly, I'd never expect that it'll replace Dr.Boom so well. If left unanswered, then almost guarantees you to win and if opponent trades it usually kills 3 minions or so.

Great deck, finally you can play hunter without stooping to the level of face hunter smile.png

So far I either win or watch the opposition place loads of minions I can't remove.

Why are there no knife jugglers in this deck?

 

Because I value Elekk more highly right now.

      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.

      The Hearthstone Championship Tour continues this weekend, with the focus shifting to the Asia-Pacific region. In this article I have introduced some of the players, and listed their deck archetypes.
      The APAC region is often regarded as the weakest region, and with some justification. However, although the region lacks a little in depth, the best players are definitely world class. Not only that, but the rest of the pack is rapidly improving, and it would be very negligent to ignore the region in 2017. Staz, from The Philippines recently won the $150,000 first prize at a stacked WESG, which marked the first major tournament won by the region. The top players will be looking to keep the rest of the world on notice, with some high quality play this weekend.
      Below I have listed a few of the key players, along with notes and deck archetypes.
        CaraCute: Tempo Mage, Aggro Rogue, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      CaraCute has been touted by both NeilYo and Staz as having a good chance, and since those comments were made, she has come through the Tavern Hero Qualifier to take her place in the main Swiss. She learned her trade at Guildhouse Fireside gatherings, the same Fireside gatherings where caster Jia Dee also rose through the ranks.
        Che0nsu: Jade Druid, Miracle Rogue, Mid Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      Che0nsu made his name by first winning the Last Call qualifier, and then building on that to finish top four in the World Championship at BlizzCon. 
        ChongGEr: Reno Mage, Aggro Shaman, Reno Warlock, Reno Warrior
      ChongGer is one of the most consistent performers in the South-East Asia scene. He came fourth in the Singapore Major, third in the Thai Major, and second in the Malaysia Major, where he lost two matches in the final to a player he had already beaten in the upper bracket! He also placed consistently high in the preliminaries last year. 
         GundamFlame: Tempo Mage, Aggro Rogue, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      GundanFlame impressed observers in the Japan Summer Championship with his understanding of aggressive play. His understanding of when to ease off the pedal, and when to go all-in, won him the national title. It is no surprise that his lineup for the Playoffs is an aggressive one.

        HandomeGuy (pictured above): Aggro Rogue, Aggro Shaman, Reno Warlock, Pirate Warrior
      HandsomeGuy is regarded as the man to beat whenever he steps foot in an APAC tournament. He finished in second place in the APAC Winter Championship, and that proved to be his worst result, as he went on to win both the Spring and Summer Championships.
        Kranich: Reno Mage, Aggro Shaman (shown below), Reno Warlock, Dragon Warrior
      Kranich played in both the 2014, and 2015 World Championships, finishing top four and top eight respectively. Due to this, and the fact that he was a member of Team Dignitas before they withdrew from Hearthstone, he is one of the best known APAC players in the West. He is not scared to put his own stamp on decks, his RenoLock contains Doomguard and Krul the Unshackled, while his Shaman deck is slower than most Aggro Shamans, and leans towards midrange.

        NaviOOT: Reno Mage, Aggro Shaman, Reno Warlock, Pirate Warrior
      NaviOOT has built a strong reputation on the back of relentless top 100 finishes, and a consistently popular stream. In recent months he has turned his attention more and more to the tournament scene, making the trip to the Malaysia Open, in which he placed top 8. He has also stated that he will be travelling to DreamHack Austin, which is coming up soon. He managed top four at last Winter's APAC Championship, and is a genuine contender in 2017.
       Pinpingho: Tempo Mage, Mid Shaman, Reno Warlock, Water Warrior
      Pinpingho finished top eight in the 2015 World Championship. He was known for being one of the strongest Shaman players, back before Shaman was regarded as a playable class, so it will be interesting to see how a does now! He qualified for two APAC Championship events in 2016, and so is no stranger to these events.
        Surrender: Reno Mage, Aggro Shaman, Reno Warlock, Pirate Warrior
      Although he is yet to have a big win, Surrender is highly regarded in the community and has numerous good results. He already had Xixo as a playtest partner, and has recently joined Counter Logic Gaming, along with Xixo and Hoej. He will be as well prepared as anyone for this event.
        Tom60229: Reno Mage, Aggro Shaman, Reno Warlock, Pirate Warrior
      One of the most accomplished players in the field, Tom60229 has shown consistent results since the dawn of Hearthstone. His most recent tournament win was the Malaysia Major, but also had good success on the 2015 ONOG Tour. His worldwide tournament experience will stand him in good stead in this event.
       
      The event begins at 3am CET on Saturday 25 February, and coverage will be on the official PlayHearthstone Twitch channel.

      For the past few days, top players have been discussing the pros and cons of the new MMR change at Legend Ranks. The only problem being, that Game Designer, Iksar, isn't aware of a change.
      There are far fewer Legendary players than usual this season, and as such things might feel a little different to the players, but the sample size across many streams and thousands of games of Hearthstone seems to point to the changing of the matchmaking system. It has been accepted by most that the system has changed so that you only play opponents in a very narrow band, rather than the previous system where you could be matched with someone with a wildly different Legend Rank.
      That alone might not have been enough evidence, but players are also queuing into the same opponent multiple times, to the point that they are having to play mind games on which deck to queue.

      Hoej independently witnessed the same thing, and went to Twitter to check that he was not alone. Several Legendary players agreed that the system has been changed, and people began to discuss what they thought of the changes.
      Placeholder for tweet 834430686325067776 The majority of players like the new matchmaking, although several did voice concerns that the new system heavily favours the players who reach Legend Rank early in the season. Just as the debate was getting interesting, Iksar dropped his bombshell:
        At this point there are several options, and all seem unlikely. Either the entire community is suffering from some kind of huge matchmaking fluctuation, Blizzard have made a major change without informing Iksar, or there is a bug which most people preferred to the actual game. Whatever happens, the reply when Iksar has investigated is sure to be interesting!

      Blizzard have announced that the next update will contain big changes to the way Arena works.
      The newly announced changes will come into force at the same time as the nerfs to Small-Time Buccaneer and Spirit Claws, which we discussed previously.
      The most important change will be that Arena will change from Wild format to Standard. This will help to keep Arena feeling fresh, as well as make sure that card synergies can be drafted more easily.
      Changes have also been made to the distribution of cards. Common and Basic cards will show up less often, and the frequency of spells and class cards being offered has been raised. The full discussion can be found in the announcement link above, but the main reasoning is to allow players to have more opportunities to outdraft and outplay their opponents, rather than just playing the game on curve.
      This philosophy will have some implications in Standard too. If Blizzard are actively trying to reduce the impact of playing on curve in Arena, this could mean that they will carry over the same thoughts into constructed play. I feel that moving away from the style, unaffectionately known as Curvestone, would be good for the game. The changes will almost certainly be welcomed in the Arena community, and it is good to see Blizzard making them now, rather than waiting for the next set to launch.

      Im making a telegram bot that can send you new decks and news from https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone.
      It already can send some decks and filter them by class and deck format.
      Im going to open bot for all users in next few weeks. 
      Any suggestions?
