LoE offers nothing for Hunters?

OK so I just purchased the League of Explorers adventure and have gained some pretty interesting cards. I play a Deathrattle/Beast Hunter and it seemed as though several of the new cards could really offer some interesting new dynamics to my deck. I messed around with a few different combinations but had some difficulty finding just the right arrangement. So naturally I turned to the forums and deck lists to get some ideas and there was nothing. No Hunter decks with LoE cards and no threads addressing this. Thus, i pose unto you, the vast and varying strategic geniuses of Icy-Veins,  these questions. What, if anything, does LoE offer the Hunter class? Has anyone managed to create a successful hunter deck incorporating LoE cards? And if the consensus is that LoE has nothing of significance to offer the hunter class, why the inclusion of so many beast cards with this adventure pack? As always, all opinions are greatly appreciated.

A lot of LoE cards could be used as a budget replacement, but probably not as a "final" card, with the exception of Camel. However, Camel is not usable in aggro meta as it gives you opponent board presence and tempo (because he will be the first to attack with it).

The cards work as a card draw, but card draw isn't actually run in hunter decks. This makes the Discover mechanic rather useless for this class.

i see. well i play a hunter that uses a lot of deathrattle and beast synergies. Ive seen it referred to a few times as a beastrattle deck. cards like undertaker played in combination with the webspinner, haunted creeper or huge toad usually give me some deathrattle board presence into the next few rounds and card gain like jeweled scarab and tomb spider give me a bit more control of my playable options til i draw the Baron Rivendare. and all the while the consistent beast presence allows me to control the board with beast dependent class cards. The card gain also allows for the inclusion of more higher cost minions for the late game since there are almost always 1 or 2 low cost options when "discovering" cards. toss in some cards like Anubisath Sentinel, sludge Belcher, and of course Savannah Highmane not only help to establish a dominating board presence but play into the the overall synergy of the BeastRattle deck. Ice the whole thing off with Dr. Boom and his deathrattle bombs and Kel Thuzad to make sure the deathrattle fun never stops and there isnt enough silence in the word to stop this deck. In theory atleast.

LoE could complement some weird control hunter builds which I like to play for fun, but control has never really worked with Hunter before. My current Hunter is a deathrattle hunter with some LoE.

Yes, control Hunter has never been a popular deck type, especially thanks to Hunter's great aggro cards and his hero power. However, everything can change with the existence of Sir Finley and other cards in LoE. Although I don't think Control hunter will become popular, I think he will become somewhat viable.

In terms of competitive hunter decks, no not really. I suppose finlay is a decent(and debatable) addition to midrange hunter, but it's not like it has warped the class from inside out.

webspinner is a good LoE card... i play a hunter deathrattle deck and its one of the funnest decks ever. Feign Death FTW!

Webspinner is a Naxx card. And yes, it is a good card indeed.

I could see tomb spider being an okay addition to beast focus mid range decks as a 1 off.  It is a tempo loss, but offers a lot of value in quite a few matches.

It is a card that doesn't necessarily need to be played on curve. That means you don't lose as much tempo when you play it in later turns. It even feels like you can't afford to play it one curve because Hunters don't have many ways to regain board control. But yes, I think I still keep undervaluing Discover mechanic and that it can give you high value. Would you share your experience with that card later?

      Hey guys, I was just wondering if anyone knew the best tier combination currently for survival hunter. Are we supposed to be running full 4-set from Antorus and keeping 2-set from Tomb, vice versa, etc. I took a little break from the game for a month, and didn't want to have the same problem coming back I did with ToS.

      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.

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, PUBG, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.
      If you have any further questions please contact us at battletag: Vims#21684

      Hi and, first of all, thanks for your time. 
      I´m back to WoW after around 3 years, and I´m feeling quite confused yet. My main is a Hunter. I left it during WoD as a BM. Now I´m back, still with WoD expansion, and I feel the class has changed a LOT. No traps, quite a different composition, etc. 
      I´d like some help in order to set my talents and rotations. My intention atm, as lvl 100, is to finish questing Draenor (still quite a bit to do here) and then buy Legion and try to level up before the expansion comes. I like soloing (I guess BM should be my choice, but I´m here to hear your opinions!!) and I´ll try to avoid skipping content. I´m not in a hurry, just want to enjoy the whole lore-and-questing all the way up.
      Thanks again for your help!!!!
