Just wanted to point out that under the "Synergies & Combinations"  you have Hunter's Mark listed while it's not listed in the deck itself. Other than that the everything looks good. I will be trying this version out and letting you know what I think. So far looks pretty solid. Keep up the good work.

Would yogg still fit somewhere?

 

Not really, if you fall behind on turns 10+, you will usually have a bad time regaining board, even with Yogg-Saron, Hope's End as he won't have huge amounts of spells, unlike from decks that run him as one of win conditions, such as token druid or yogg-and-load. You should rather run a strong nonsituational minion.

That's the statistics view of Hearthstone Deck Tracker (HDT)

Thanks. Got it and it's nice.

Second King's Elekk is fine. Dire Wolf Alpha is also useful, suddenly Fiery Bat and Kindly Grandmother can fight well. Even the vanilla Bloodfen Raptor is good. All of them have Beast type for Houndmaster that's really important, and 2 mana 3/2 is very important for early interaction.

Your Barnes will be slightly weaker, but you'll get more effective in your bad matchups - against aggressive decks where you have to interact - rather than in slower matchups where you have the edge anyways thanks to the best top end in the format.

Thank you very much. Im trying it with additional kings elekk and dire wolf. It seems very good sub.

 Great deck, although I do not have the gold for more than 2 wings of Kharazan yet. Otherwise it looks like a fine cheap to make deck, with lots of removal. Good advice. Thx ALL!!

I'm new to this deck but there are quite a few decks I get completely destroyed by. 

 

Aggro lock is tough but doable, but aggro shaman is insane. Take so much damage so quickly and have to kill all my minions against their huge taunts.

This deck isn't even that different from the old midrange hunter deck, I have no idea why I can't seem to win a single game with it. Even with the perfect starting hand I'm getting annihilated by everything from tempo Mage to ramp Druid. 

I've used midrange hunter to get rank 5-1 the past 6 months and I've fallen all the way back to rank 16. Are there any videos of this deck so I can see what I'm doing wrong?

I made a few adjustments to the deck myself. I took out Abusive Sergeant and Stranglethorn Tiger and replaced them with Tundra Rhino and Ragnaros the Firelord. I haven't played the deck too much on ladder this month, just a few games around rank 9 and 10 but I had roughly 70ish Win rate with it. I'm not sure what the issue you're having with it. Tempo Mage can be rough for Hunter but this deck does pretty well from what I've seen against most Druids. If you can, can you post a video of you playing a few games with it so we can see or maybe you can add someone from the site to help you with it while you play. Hope this helped.

I guess the majority of players have just adapted to the popularity of Hunter. It's such an everpresent deck you'd better a good matchup with it. That's what I did choosing Shaman instead of Warrior, and that's what I assume a big share of reasonable players does. That can be a pretty reasonable explaination for your issues.

I think Princess Huhuran is worse than Savannah Highmane.

Yes, she is. However, she isn't supposed to take place of Savannah Highmane. She should be played together with the Savannah Highmanes, Kindly Grandmothers and Infested Wolves, instead of replacing them.

I think Princess Huhuran would be still good in this deck.

Since the deck does not feature sufficient amount of powerful deathrattle minions, she is not good enough to be included.

I put in N'Zoth instead of Kings Elekk but i never got to play it (played about 10 games).. you think i should try Ragnaros instead (or just Kings Elekk) ? Cause i think against control decks u need another late game threat besides Call of the Wild.. but i'm not sure

If the amount of control decks is significant and you often find yourself in need of a big minion, then yes, you could try Ragnaros the Firelord. However, I do not recommend this change if you face considerable amount of aggro decks.

I see a lot of hunters using ragnaros in this deck to make it better for ranked play, but I'm not sure what to substitute it for. Any tips?

 

Also, what is the secret to Barnes? I get that in theory it would be good to get something like savannah with it, but aside from the occasional big bad wolf I feel like I almost always get a 1/1 tiger or elek or something. How do I make the most out of it?

First of all, factor into your strategy he will pull a vanilla 1/1 whenever you play him. That way, you won't be disappointed when he does so.

Use an add-on that shows what cards remain in your stack, mulligan harder and play Barnes when the odds of him pulling a valuable minion are stacked in your favor. 

Spoiler

Don't rage too much when he still does pull a vanilla 1/1 despite everything.

      Various bosses from The Witchwood's Monster Hunt are ready to battle it out in this week's brand new Tavern Brawl.
      This is the first special Tavern Brawl that we will see during this year's Hallow's End.
      You just queue up and you get assigned a random boss from the Monster Hunt. Some of these bosses include:
      Azalina Soulthief (Hero Power: 2 mana - Summon three 1/1 Wisps) Blood Witch Greta (Passive Hero Power: Spells cost Health instead of Mana) Brushwood Centurion (Hero Power: 3 mana - All minions attack random enemy minions) Chupacabran (Hero Power: 1 mana - Give a friendly minion +1/+1 and Lifesteal) Plaguemaster Rancel (Hero Power: 2 mana - Deal 2 damage to a minion. If it survives, give it Poisonous) Shudderwock (Passive Hero Power - All Battlecries trigger twice) Winslow Tobtock (Hero Power: 2 mana - Each player shuffles their hand into their decks and draws that many cards) Wharrgarbl (Hero Power: 2 mana - Draw 3 Murlocs from your deck) Experiment 3C (Hero Power: 2 mana - Destroy a friendly minion and draw 3 cards) It's not sure how many bosses there are available, but they certainly have similar decks as during the PvE adventure. It might be worth checking our Monster Hunt guide to refresh your memory on some of their abilities or just experience them in action!

      Hallow's End is going to last from October 17 until October 31.
      As we've already discussed, you can log in to enjoy the spooky festivities and receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron.
      You will also get a free Arena entry ticket in order to test your mettle in the Dual Class Arena. Pick a Hero, choose the Hero Power of a second Hero and try to make the perfect mix with the combined might of both Heroes' class cards.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end: Monster Smash (October 17-22) and The Headless Horseman Rides Again (October 24 - 29)!
      Lastly, for a limited time you can purchase the new Paladin hero, Sir Annoy-o, as a Bundle along with 20 Witchwood packs at the price of $19.99 or 19.99 EUR. This mighty new hero even has his own backstory which you can read here.
      Later today, we should also see the balance changes go live.
    • By Zadina
      The update will take effect on October 18.
      Well, the balance changes were smaller than expected as only three cards were affected this time.
      As expected, Giggling Inventor was affected as it now costs 7 mana, up from 5. The team actually considered it too powerful for 6 mana, which raises the question why it was 5 mana in the first place. Anyway, it still remains an odd card if this is still relevant.

      Now, a big and unexpected change was Mana Wyrm being raised to 2 mana. The iconic Classic minion has undergone the Tunnel Trogg treatment and after 4+ years of power, it is ready to retire.

      And a Wild change to alleviate the devastating Druid combo: Aviana will now cost 10 mana. This means she can't be played at the same turn as Kun the Forgotten King and Juicy Psychmelon won't be able to draw both Kun the Forgotten King and Aviana with it.

      The update will go live on October 18th with the weekly reset. What do you guys think about the changes?

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!
