Hi! I tried to use this deck but it says it's only available in wild matches. Maybe a card was nerfed or something?

You need to click/tap "Convert to Standard" after hovering your mouse over the portrait of the hero when having the deck open in the collection, or when tapping the portrait (if you are using mobile device). If that doesn't help, delete the deck, create it again, click/tap the button again and it should work. If it does not help, asking the support is your safest bet.

This deck is amazing it gives f2p players a chance to climb ranks.

 

I'm stuck at rank 12 though and was wondering what cards should I upgrade in the deck because Ive got 3k dust.

This deck is pretty much at it's peak so there isn't much to add to it, if any, that would improve it. I have however seen different variants running things like Knife JugglerRavasaur Runt, Raptor HatchlingGolakka CrawlerSavannah Highmane and Leeroy Jenkins. Not sure what you are running into in your meta so I can't help you more than that. Another option is our Midrange Hunter deck. I've been using a slightly different version of this deck and I've greatly enjoyed it.

This deck is not a budget one, and all the cards are final, meaning the only way to "upgrade" the deck is to run tech cards. However, such need should not be felt until ranks 5+, where the competition is getting tougher and every card counts.

As for tech cards, the most common ones atm are hungry crab and golakka crawler against murloc paladin and pirate warrior. These two cards can straight out win a few games. I'm currently rank 3 and half of my games are against pirate warriors.

For the deck, I'm not too sure about the inclusion of firefly x2, since it has no beast synergy at all. Though it's effectively a 2 mana 2/4, they don't match against aoe's well and makes a weak turn 1 play. I would definitely take 1out to tech in a hungry crab/ golakka crawler.

On Turn 1, Face Hunters are often playing a strong 1-drop, as they do have plenty of it, so they often play Fire Fly and Flame Elemental on T2, or coin them both out on T1 if they do not have a better play.
As for the AoE, there aren't many early-game AoEs, especially not reliant or commonly found ones, so you shouldn't need to be worried about it as much.
But indeed, Fire Fly is not as strong as other cards in the deck and are often the first card to be taken out, together with Tundra Rhino.

What are the best opening cards to mulligan for? Or is it not really important as long as you get a mana curve?

Is there a particular 1/2/3 order I should aim for?

This deck is a pretty straight forward so all you are really looking for is a good opening curve.

Played all morning. The worst ft2 Hunter deck I ever played. Even if you survive the beginning, you get crapped over with the many 1/1s and lose miserably long before turn 10.

I do not have such issues with this deck. Would you please upload a few (optimally 3-5) replays?

Face Hunter is one my all-time-classic decks so i decided to have a run with this suggested.Due to lack of some duplicates to complete the deck,i added Amani BerserkerGrimestreet SmugglerGladiator's Longbow, and Carrion Grub.

I was to say the least impressed!!Played against an aggro paladin and splattered his face in the ground without losing a single HP!Makes me want to push for rank!!Thank you guys!

Need some of your wisdom here people...

After 10 runs with this deck results are good but not optimal as i expected. The rate is 6W/4L against a wide variety of opponents, from freeze mage to a Golden secret hunter (whose face btw i bashed pretty easily!).As a consequence the rank advancement is very slow.

Could you suggest anything in order to improve my performance with the deck?

I know positiv2 would prefer some replays but i don't know how to upload them here.I am using Hearthstone Deck Tracker,yet i am not fully practical with its features...

This is the deck in the form i am using it now 

Thank you for your understanding!

Herathstone Decktracker saves your replays on a Server.

On the top right there is a button "replays"

Easiest way to access are the last 10 replays, just pick the wanted replay.

-> A new window in your browser is opened and the replay starts to play.

Copy the link and post it here.

It would be easier for you to tell us what other cards you have, see if you can't swap some of the slower cards for faster ones.

If you can link to your whole collection through Hearthpwn/Innkeeper, it would be easier. But anyway, the cards you might want to cut are, along with a suggestion:

- Amani Berzerker: It's not a bad card, but you have no way to activate it yourself so you need to either "waste a turn" trading or hope on a misplay from your opponent. Get a Ravasaur Runt instead

- Stubborn Gastropod: Again, not a bad card but it does nothing for your deck. Same as above, get a Ravasaur Runt instead. 

- Carrion Grub & Grimestreet Smuggler: Weak cards. Get a second Eaglehorn Bow or a couple of Savannah Highmane in there instead.

- Gladiator's Longbow: Too slow for a face deck. See above for suggestions, or (should you have him) The Team-killing Dumbass

@Karayan7 here's the changes I would make that would help your consistency and output with your deck;

-Gladiator's Longbow

-Grimestreet Smuggler

-Amani Berserker

-Carrion Grub

+Fiery Bat

+Dire Wolf Alpha

+Eaglehorn Bow

+Unleash the Hounds

 

I know you had said that you were short on these double but these will really help your consistency which in turn will help your winrate.

I am saving dust to craft Aya Blackpaw and Archmage Antonidas (need less than 200) and afterwards i am going to craft these other cards you suggested.

Maybe it's not optimal but I found that somecards are week against the meta right now I swap in:

 

-2 Fiery Bat (1 health makes this one drop weak)

-2 Kindly grandmother (Strong but kinda slow for the deck)

-2 Rat pack (Again, is really strong but to slow for the deck)

-1 Thundra Rhino (Turn 5 its kinda the turn when you are going to win anyways, its nice to have it but Leeroy its just better)

For:

+2 Hungry crab (tech card vs Shaman and Paladin, even if opp doesnt have murloc 2 HP makes better for crackling razormaw or another buff like Direwolf alpha or Leokk)

+2 Golakka crawler (tech card vs anything runing pirates, which seems its everyone this days, even if opp has no pirates, 3 health makes this minion survive a lot)

+2 Vicious Fledgling (Flappy bird is OP, really it is)

+1 Leeroy Jenkins (3rd Kill command, also can combo well with unleash the hounds)

 

And I have a 56 win %, I was stuck in rank 10, made the changes and got to rank 5 easily.

I have found this card to be borderline useless against Priest unless I'm playing Priest. ;)

      Competitive Hearthstone fans can look forward to more tournaments and bigger cash payouts in 2018.

      Blizzard announced a set of sweeping changes to the way the HCT Tour will be organized in 2018. The new "Masters System" promises to make it easier than ever for professional Hearthstone players to win prizes and make it out to international events.
      Announced today on the official Hearthstone blog, the Hearthstone Masters System promises to make sweeping changes and improvements to Hearthstone's competitive tournament infrastructure:
      The marquee change to the HCT circuit will be the addition of "Masters Tiers". The rolling total of a player's HCT points for the previous three seasons will determine a player's Masters Tier, and each tier will reward players with increasing benefits. A 3-Star Master, the highest tier, is able to receive a $2500 appearance bonus for attending up to three HCT events per season, which can add up to a $22,500 per year in appearance fees alone! All three tiers will also offer free invitations to monthly online tournaments with cash prizes, as well as "end-of-year commemorative swag", which I can only assume is sweet, exclusive card backs.
       
      Blizzard will also be changing the way that qualification works for HCT Playoff events. Players will automatically qualify for the HCT Playoffs by achieving a single-season HCT Point total. The point total for season one of 2018 is 45 points, but Blizzard noted that this may change based upon the season and region of competition. As part of these changes, HCT Points will now be rewarded for the top three ladder finishes a player posts in each season instead of being handed out each month.
      Players will also be able to qualify for a season's playoffs through the brand new Hearthstone Challengers program, which appears to be a re-branding of the previous Tavern Hero system. Eight players will be able to qualify for the playoffs through the Hearthstone Challengers program each season, but the specific nature of these new qualifying tournaments has yet to be announced.
      In addition to a promising an increased number of HCT tour stops, Blizzard will be giving out additional cash rewards to the top ten Hearthstone teams each season. Each team can lock-in three players per season, and the top ten HCT-point-earning teams on the season will take home a hefty prize. With the prizes for first and second place separated by $3000 per player, this should add a fresh and exciting element of team-focused drama to Hearthstone tournaments in 2018. 

      Though the long-term effects of today's announcement remain to be seen, Blizzard's message of increased commitment to competitive Hearthstone promises to be a massive step forward for the community. A notable increase to the number of competitive events and the size of cash payouts sends a tremendous vote of confidence to members of the competitive Hearthstone scene, and sets 2018 up to be the biggest year in Hearthstone history.

      It was noticed that the Hunter Death Knight's Hero Power doesn't include any Beasts from Kobolds & Catacombs. The Hearthstone team is going to amend that in the near future.
      The Build-A-Beast Hero Power doesn't include any Beasts from the new K&C expansion and subsequently wouldn't include any new Beasts from future expansions. Mike Donais explained that this was done because of issues with translating the Custom Zombeast cards in all of the languages that Hearthstone is available. Obviously, this caused an outrage during the past weekend.
      Thankfully, Team 6 listened to the community's concerns and they agreed to expand the pool of Beasts, from which you can craft your custom Zombeast. This is going to happen for Kobolds & Catacombs at some point in the future - perhaps after the Christmas vacations. There will also be support for Beasts from future expansions, but some of them may be excluded for balance reasons (like King of Beasts).

      Greetings,

      Many players have noticed that Deathstalker Rexxar’s Hero Power does not include any of the new Beasts that were added with the Kobolds & Catacombs expansion.

      Since then, some players have provided constructive feedback regarding the state of Deathstalker Rexxar, and we agreed that a change to the Hero Power was warranted.

      As such, we will be updating Deathstalker Rexxar’s Hero Power to include new Beasts going forward. Please be patient, as this is a fairly complicated endeavor and we may need to start with a smaller change before a more permanent solution is implemented. We don’t have a date for this change to share with you today, but we will provide more information once we have it.

      Please also note that as new Beasts are released, we may need to mark some of them as exempt for various reasons, much like how King of Beasts is currently excluded from the pool of Beasts that Deathstalker Rexxar’s Hero Power can pull from. 

      Thank you for providing constructive feedback. We see your love and passion for Hearthstone and believe that the best way to make Hearthstone better is to do so together.

      See you all in the Tavern! (source)
