Midrange Beast Hunter Standard

Recommended Posts

The Value vs. Tempo section twice mentions Getaway Kodo instead of Dispatch Kodo.

I'm impressed that you managed to publish this many decks on release day.

Paragraph 3.1.1, should be Dispatch Kodo, not Getaway Kodo.

 

Looks like a fun deck, and relatively cheap to play. I'll be experimenting with this over the weekend.

I suppose you see the downsides of publishing so many decks - there are slight issues with the guide, though they should be resolved soon. Thank you and @Allegro for pointing it out!

It's honestly fairly solid. It finally allows you to play to Knife Juggler's strengths again, rather than watching him die with little to no impact.

Poor pleb who doesn't have Karazhan here. Any suggestions for a Kindly Grandmother swap? I was thinking something like 2x Huge Toad or maybe even one Desert Camel, one Huge Toad (DC to make up some of the Knife Juggler potential lost with no KG).

Huge Toad is a very good swap.

I loose badly to warriors ( 1-5) but everything else is fair enough

I struggle to deal with big minions, like Rag.  Here's an example- https://hsreplay.net/replay/rcTCjkzBMiHfbvForyPQjM what could I have done better so that I would have been able to deal with such a big threat?

Edit: Here's another loss vs. a Jade Rogue- https://hsreplay.net/replay/m35iCcGD2DQosd36pyPyE7

The main thing I would change is the mulligan.  Unleash the Hounds and Knife Juggler are great for regaining the board against a bunch of small/medium minions, but against Druid, you need to be the one leading with tempo and forcing your opponent to respond.  If you can do that successfully, then you'll have enough bodies on the board to either take out a big threat or hit face and end the game before the big threat can be relevant.  Tossing those two cards back would make it more likely for you to have 1-drops like Alleycat, Smuggler's Crate (into a 2-drop), and Fiery bat.

Hi again everyone. First off I want to thank everyone on this site who helped me last season for all the great advice I made it to a solid rank 9 and I am happy with that. 

On the next note I was wondering is anyone else outraged by the fact that hunter is now a dead class? Here is what I mean by this. The hunter class itself is built on 1 of 2 options. Face and midrange. Face is fine because you usually get alot of aggro cards early with hunter decks and are able to rush them out and overwhelm. Midrange is good for a little control until a specific combo is met for the win. Usually damage spells combo. But both of those decktypes face a huge problem now.  There is now ZERO chance of killing anyone early! And by the time the midrange option hits that is when everyone else now flurishes. They have more cards than you and EVERYONE has bigger clear damage spells and creatures. 

I mean look at it this way. The biggest field clear spell that hunter has is the explosive trap card that does a measly 2 damage to all the enemy creatures. Last season this was usefull. This season it is useless. Barely any creatures go out with 4 or less health anymore. Everyone is midrange. Everyone is taunts. Everyone is heals. And EVERYONE is DRAWS. There is a rediculous amount of draw cards for each and every class except 1 and that is hunter. 

I have narrowed down the reason for this major hunter weakness to 2 things. Lack of draws spells and cards for the hunter class (that would go along with the new meta). And a disappointing lack of clear damage spells. Is it really fair to give priests who already have huge clearing spells a card that does 5 damage to every creature except theirs? Especially while hunter got no spells of the sort. Pumping up creatures is fine and dandy but it is of zero use is everyone else is built against them.

Warriors are just rediculous now. Mages have too many spells and draws they out last any face hunter and insta kill anything a midrange throws out. Warlocks are just impossible now. Druids have a million things to throw out early which either counters every single face hunter or just face hunts the midrange decks. Giving the rogues an extra coin when they already had basically 3 in their decks was just rediculous, not needed, and extrememly stupid on the side of blizzard.  Paladins have sort of the same issues as hunters but they were already better equipped. I would guess they are second worst right now with hunters being the worst. Shamans I have not seen many of but I assume they are down here with the hunters and paladins. But at least they have the ability to add windfury and draw to their decks. 

Blizzard has severely screwed hunters and I am hoping against hope the next adventure fixes that. I am think about leaving and not coming back until at least reno leaves standard mainly because that card is the ultimate hunter killer. You waste all your cards face hunting or mid ranging and then reno comes out and with no draw you are dead useless crap just waiting to die. 

Anyways that is my season rant. Not angry just extremely disappointed

Not really. I remember the times when hunter was pretty much the only class on ladder, similar to pre-MSG shaman, which is why I don't really miss him. For the same reason I don't miss paladin as much as I miss rogue.

I wouldn't say outraged, but I agree with a vast majority of what you're saying. I don't think I've won a ranked game against a Kabal class since MSG dropped.

@JonesyyHey, we're glad you're having fun with the deck! If you're having major issues with aggro (assuming those warriors were mostly pirate), you can swap out the Tundra Rhino for one Huge Toad.

I think the biggest dangers playing against pirate warriors are the (buffed) weapons, so I think a more apt change might be Acidic Ooze, although I haven't tried it yet.  I haven't kept strict track, but it feels like I am still winning about 30% of the time against pirate warrior with my midrange hunter. A lot of those wins are probably unlucky draws or poor play by my opponent. The new fast warriors are extremely fast when they draw well.

Sadly Acidic Swamp Ooze does not help as much in the other matchups, such as dragon priest. If you encounter a LOT of pirate warriors, then sure, include it, but as long as you are not, Huge Toad is better as it is not bad in other matchups.

Any tips for playing against priests? especially those with the annoying 1-mana potion.

Not many, if you are talking about Potion of Madness, hand buffs maybe help, as they mostly buff your minions over 2 attack. You may add more hand buffs, like Shaky ZipgunnerSmuggler's Crate and Grimestreet Smuggler, just be careful with shadow word cards.

This deck with this list is bad against dragon priest, but if your personal meta game has too many priests, you may take out Unleash the Hounds and Knife Jugglers and add two copies of one of those cards, possibly one of the first two, or both.

Whatever the decklist you are using, this deck will have problems against most popular decks, as far as I have used it.

Having big problems due to lack of card draws. 

So far i won a lot of games but mostly due to the fast that i was lucky in top decking. Any suggestions to prevent this?

You can add 2x King's Elekk, either for cards that you feel like are underperforming, or for 1x Tundra Rhino, 1x Dispatch Kodo.

      In the Year of the Pheonix post, we learned more about the Ranked mode overhaul in Hearthstone and Blizzard has now put together a general matchmaking FAQ which hopefully helps answer the most common questions.

      Rank Mode Changes
      The existing ladder in Ranked Mode has been replaced with a new league system. The system has five leagues each made up of 10 ranks. You will start each season at Bronze 10 and slowly make your way to Bronze 1 before graduating to the Silver League and above. Each league also has rank floors at rank 10 and rank 5 where you won't go down in ranks when losing matches. New players will have their own league that runs from ranks 40-1. 
      Stars & Bonuses
      You need to gain 3 starts to be promoted from Gold 10 to Gold 9 for example. You will gain one star for each match you win and lose one for a loss.  Based on your performance in the previous season, you will be rewarded with a star bonus which acts as a multiplier on the starts you get from each win.
      Ranked Rewards
      They've also reworked rewards that you earn at the end of each season or Ranked Play. Reward chest can now contain card packs from the latest expansions, Rare, and even Epic cards based on the rank you achieve. There are also brand new first-time rewards to help new players.

      You can find more details here and check out the FAQ below for more information.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Hey everyone! We put together a general matchmaking FAQ here for our new ranked system to help answer questions you may have.
      For general description of this new system, please refer to our Year of the Phoenix blog.
      If you want to learn some basic concepts of matchmaking, here is our previous blog about matchmaking in Battlegrounds.
      Q: How does matchmaking work for each season?
      A: There are two matchmaking pools: matchmaking by rating (aka. MMR) and by rank.
      When your star bonus multiplier is bigger than 1, or you are in Legend rank, you are (generally) in the first matchmaking pool; when your star bonus drops to 1, you are in the second pool.
      Q: Why are there two matchmaking pools?
      A: Since each player starts at the bottom of the ladder at start, we want fair matches for everyone (aka. win-rate close to 50%). At that time, your progression on ladder is protected by your star bonus, thus your net expected gain will be positive through the ladder. Once other players run out of star bonuses, matching by rank will allow for good players, or players who want to push themselves a bit, to be able to progress to a higher rank.
      In short, having two matchmaking pools helps players progress in the ladder without having to grind as much, while still making most matches fair.
      Q: If I “tank” my MMR at certain rank floor, will I be matched with easier opponents next season because you are matchmaking by MMR at the start?
      A: No, in general you won’t. At the start of the season we will recover your MMR to certain threshold if it is dropped below that value, which is based on what your rank is in the previous season. Therefore, there would be no benefits to intentionally tank your MMR.
      Q: How many stars bonuses do I get at the start of the season?
      A: It depends on your current MMR and the rank you reached from your previous season, whichever gives a higher value. Generally, the minimal initial star bonuses you get for each rank floor you reached are:
      Best Rank Minimal Initial Star Bonuses Bronze 10 2 Bronze 5 2 Silver 10 2 Silver 5 3 Gold 10 4 Gold 5 5 Platinum 10 6 Platinum 5 7 Diamond 10 8 Diamond 5 9 Legend 10 As you can see, every player starts with at least two stars bonuses.
      Q: Do you reset MMR each season?
      A: No, we do not.
      Q: Will the value of my previous season’s MMR be exactly same as the new season?
      A: Technically no, although the change will be very small and the “value order” will be kept (Player A whose MMR is larger than player B in the last season will still be ordered as such). Mathematically, a re-normalization process takes place at the start of each season to keep the distribution in a nice bell-shaped curve.
      Q: If I missed one season, will I lose my star bonuses when I return?
      A: No, you won’t.
      Q: If I missed multiple seasons, will I lose star bonuses when I return?
      A: Based on how long you are absent, there will be some small decay applied to your MMR. Therefore, you may (or may not) lose some star bonuses.
      Q: Where do the win steak bonuses end?
      A: Diamond 5.
