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. ;)

      We have a huge "in the works" update from the Hearthstone dev team, showing off some of the features coming in the next months for the game. From general information like them being pleased about the state of the Standard meta, to potential Wild changes, new Classic cards, an extended "intro" period for new players with 25 additional ranks and extra rewards (that are skippable), plans for improvements to in-game tournaments, a tweaking of the Welcome Bundle and more.
      We're also getting a preview for this year's Hallow's End and an upcoming new Paladin hero!
      September 18 (source)
      Welcome to Hearthstone’s first In the Works update. Here we’re giving you a brief look at what’s coming in the next few months for Hearthstone—game updates and events, esports, and more!
      There’s a lot to talk about, so read on to find out what’s in store.
      Game Updates
       
      The State of the Meta We’ve seen the meta-game start to stabilize in the wake of The Boomsday Project’s release. Decks like Odd Warrior, Odd Paladin, Token Druid, Tempo Mage, Taunt Druid, Zoo Warlock, Quest Rogue, Secret Hunter, Even Paladin, Deathrattle Hunter, and Even Warlock, have all been top performers.
      While those decks stand out from the pack slightly, there are effective decks from every class. Evolve Shaman and Combo Priest have both seen success, for example.
      Overall we’re happy with the excellent diversity of decks we’re seeing at all levels of Ranked Play.
       
      Cards to Watch Giggling Inventor is hugely popular and shows up in a lot of decks. We intended for Giggling Inventor to be powerful because we’ve found that having powerful neutral Taunt minions tends to make games more interesting. We’ve seen that with cards like Sludge Belcher and Tar Creeper in the past. Cards that fulfill this role need to be strong to get that job done, but there’s a line where they might be too good. 
      We aren’t planning any changes to Giggling Inventor for now, but we’re keeping an eye on it in the meantime. We’d like to know what you think.
       
      Wild Balance There’s been an ongoing discussion within the team regarding how Wild should play. Right now, Wild feels somewhat like Standard but with an elevated power level and a vast library of cards. Should Wild live up to its name more, where we allow really crazy and powerful combos to happen, even in the early game? Generally, it’s harder for any one strategy to be dominant in Wild since everything is so powerful and everyone has access to so many tools, but do we want those strategies to exist? We know that there are players who would prefer to have a mode that offers that kind of gameplay.
      There’s also the point to consider that the reason to have multiple modes in Hearthstone is for them to play differently, so there are downsides to trying to put the reins on Wild too much. But we also recognize that there might be decks like Naga Sea Witch that become too prevalent and simply aren’t fun to play against.
      We’d love to hear your opinions about what you want from Wild. What do you think of how it is now, and what’s the role you see for it in the future of Hearthstone?
       
      New Classic Cards If you’ve been playing Hearthstone for a while, then you already know that with each new Hearthstone year, we’ve chosen certain cards to rotate out of the Standard format. Some of those cards have been part of the Classic format, which is usually an evergreen part of the Standard format.
      A few of the cards that left Standard were Class cards, but we want each Class to have a roughly equal number of cards available in the Classic set. To accomplish that, we’re adding four all-new cards to fill the gap.
      Here are the new Class cards being added to the Classic set. You’ll be able to craft them or open them in Classic card packs next month:
       

      When designing these cards we are thinking about new players’ first experiences playing Hearthstone.  They should be relatively straightforward while still creating some exciting moments. They also give players a chance to see and play with cards that they don't own. At the same time it’s important that they aren’t so powerful that they limit future design or cause problems (since they’ll be in Standard for longer than 2 years.)
      Looking forward, we expect more cards to join the Hall of Fame. There are also still some gaps in Classic where neutral Legendary cards joined the Hall of Fame, so we’re considering adding some new cards to the Classic set in the future.
       
      New Player Experience Improvements Even at Rank 25, competition in the Tavern can be fierce, especially if you’ve never played Hearthstone before. We’d like to ease new players into the fray a little more gently, so we’re taking some steps toward improving the new player experience. Here’s what newcomers to the Hearthstone tavern can expect to find:

       
      New players will start at Rank 50. Ranks 50 through 26 will be for new players only, and just like ranks 25 through 20, you can’t lose Stars while ranking up. Once a player achieves Rank 25, they’ll never drop below that rank again. We hope this gives players who are new to Hearthstone a little more time to get used to the Tavern, and we’ll also be giving them a few free gifts along the way to help them get up to speed. If you’re an experienced player making an additional account, there will be an option to skip the New Player Experience (and some loot, so consider carefully!) so you can get back into the competition faster. There are a few more details that we’ll provide in the future, but that’s the gist of it!
       
      In-game Tournaments Update Earlier this year we talked about adding a new feature to Hearthstone that would make it easier to organize tournaments for Fireside Gatherings and private events. The team has been working on this feature for some time, and it was originally slated to arrive this year. Unfortunately, In-game Tournaments are now on hold, so we wanted to take this opportunity to explain why.
      We have a lot of plans to improve many features of Hearthstone, including its social experience, and In-game Tournaments are an important part of that. Tournaments can serve many different audiences, but the implementation we’d arrived at catered to a very specific audience of players. Instead of broadening Hearthstone with an exciting new way to play, it felt “tacked on”, and wasn’t integrating well into the larger Hearthstone experience.
      Ultimately, we were forced to conclude that we needed to think about how and where we want to improve Hearthstone’s overall social experience before we can tackle adding a satisfying and robust implementation of In-game Tournaments that all players can enjoy. As developers, sometimes we have to make the difficult decision to step away from a design that isn’t working. We no longer felt that the end result would deliver on everyone’s expectations or the high standards we have for Hearthstone.
      As a result, while we want to revisit In-Game Tournaments at a later date, the feature is on hold for the foreseeable future.
       
      Fireside Gatherings If you’ve never attended a Fireside Gathering, or organized one of your own, you’re missing one of the most fun ways to enjoy Hearthstone with friends! They’re more fun than ever—including private events in your own home—so drop by the Fireside Gatherings site and check it out.
      Innkeepers are soon going to have even more options to spice up their events. It was already possible to experience Fireside Brawls (Tavern Brawls that can only be experienced at Fireside Gatherings), and now they’ll have a whole menu of Brawls to choose from to offer their attendees. In addition to the rotating monthly Fireside Brawl, Innkeepers will be able to select one additional Fireside Brawl from a curated library of brawls that their patrons will have access to during their Fireside Gathering. 
       
      Esports The 2018 HCT Fall Championship is coming mid-October! Watch it live on stream or live in-person at the Blizzard Arena in Los Angeles.
      It’s going to be a thrilling event to witness, and if you can be there live, it gets even better! You’ll get to meet Hearthstone developers, enjoy pick-up tournaments on-site, snap up cool stuff like Hearthstone and Blizzard Arena merchandise and earn the Thrill of Victory card back just for attending!
      You can get your tickets here. Get them fast before they sell out as seating is limited!
       
      Welcome Bundle’s Roaring Return Okay, it never left, but it IS getting a majestic make-over. It will still offer 10 Classic card packs at a very low price (great time to try to pick up those new Classic Class cards!), but instead of a random Class Legendary card, it will now include one of six Legendary dragons from the Classic set: Alexstrasza, Deathwing, Malygos, Nozdormu, Onyxia, or Ysera!

       
      There’s even better news! What could be better than dragons, you ask? Even if you’ve purchased the Welcome Bundle before, you’ll be able to grab this one too!

       
      Upcoming Game Events
       
      Hallow’s End
      The Headless Horseman returns for another spooktacular Hallow’s End event starting October 17! Just like last year, the Tavern will be decked out in horrific fashion, the dual Class Arena returns, and you’ll face the Headless Horseman in the Tavern Brawl. In the spirit of the season, we’re tossing a few more treats in the bag this year, and we’ll let you know all about them as the Headless Horseman’s return draws nigh.

       
      Hallow’s End also marks the arrival of a friendly new Paladin Hero who will be available for purchase as a part of a special deal!
       


      And that’s what’s In the Works for Hearthstone! Thanks for joining us, and we look forward to hearing what you think, so let us know on social media, or in the comments below.
      New Paladin Hero, new Classic cards, an improved new player experience with more loot and more!
