12 Win TGT Hunter Arena: Hyenas, Nefarian vs Malorne, Fel Reavers, bluffing Flamestrikes & Ball of Spiders (with analysis and audio commentary)

1 post in this topic

This is my 12 Win Hunter arena run, a tremendous amount of fun.

Points of interest and analysis:  

  

- Watch out for the Warlock game featuring Nefarian and a FEL REAVER (game 6). My strategy paid off. I milled him and tanked 8 damage to the face from the Fel Reaver. The use of taunts to protect the Fel Reaver was theoretically genius. Victory was in sight and then I saw Nefarian. I dropped Malorne and a Freezing Trap to win. I almost lost hope - but managed to still win.  

  

- Game 9 vs a Mage features a fantastic Flamestrike bluff. He even says thanks when I start filling my board. I took the risk and there was no Flamestrike. Tremendous.  

  

- The last game against the Rogue was filled with tension. I may have misplayed a couple of times when considering a Worgen was on board for the Rogue and may interact with the Slime that comes out of my Sludge Belcher. However, the Rogue didn't take advantage of that!  

  

- I was ill when playing these games - so at times, I may have said strange things on commentary (calling cards by the wrong name, etc...) - please forgive me :-)  

  

Other points of interest:  

  

- Scavenging Hyena beast synergy is insane. it wins games. It reminds me of my 12 win Hunter run from August!!  

  

- Glaivezooka gives you such a strong start. Linked to that, Bloodsail Raider Glaivezooka synergy is so strong.  

  

- Webspinner giving you Malorne is hilarious. A Hunter playing a Druid card? I call it justice (considering how often Druid beats me on ladder).  

  

- There are no Highmanes or Animal Companions in this deck! How did we get 12 wins?  

  

- Steamwheedle Sniper can pick off big minions who are low on health. Incredible value.  

  

- In an ideal world, Argent Horserider would have 3 attack.  

  

- Multi-Shot wins games when used in the correct circumstances. A 5 attack charging horse with 3 health? Sure. I'll just use Multi-Shot.  

  

- Sometimes, this deck feels confused - as if it were suffering an identity crisis. Do I go face? Do I trade? Do I want to draw cards or focus on flooding the board? Oh well, it all worked out in the end.

  

- A Mage with Forcetank and Mirror Image is hard to beat. You know that tank is going face at least twice.  

  

- We actually manage to pull off Mechwarper - Metaltooth Leaper synergy at least once. That's all I hoped for.  

  

- Using a Cultmaster do draw one card is fine. It still got value. That's fine. More than one card is preferred. But one card is still fine.  

  

- Ball of Spiders vs Madder Bomber. We all know how that ends. Oh and in general, Ball of Spiders did nothing for me. Nothing.  

  

- Why can't I win jousts?

      So I looked around the forums and couldn't find an answer for this, figured I'd post here and if I missed the answer somewhere else, someone is bound to tell me where it is, either way. During Bestial Wrath should I be keeping up Dire frenzy as normal or should I be focusing solely on Cobra Resets and Kill Command? Also, same question for Titans Thunder.

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting range DPS & Tank. We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 7/11 Mythic Antorus. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:15 PM until 12:15 AM Eastern. Currently, our main goal is to push Mythic progression & finish out the raid before next patch, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us, because we will not be doing Heroic or anything like that.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated. In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
      As far as classes are concerned, at this time, we do not have ANY rogues, DPS warriors, havoc DH, or wind walkers.
      If you are interested, add me to battle tag and we will talk (violentravi#1826), I will accept mostly anyone who wants to be a bench or casual, but for raiding purposes, you must be able to provide logs.  If you cannot get ahold of me in game, I work nights, please shoot me an email, I check it at work often and I can get ahold of other officers via text/discord if it's urgent! violentnacho@gmail.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.
