This deck sadly doesn't stand a chance vs most meta decks. Biggest issue is not having cards i guess ;-)

I found myself winning quite a lot with this deck, though only on a somewhat small sample of around 30 games. However, if this deck does not suit you, you should try making some changes mentioned in the Variations section. 

Hunter does not really have any solid card draw, so running out of cards is something you will need to get used to if you use your resources suboptimally. Gaining more experience with the deck will help a lot.

Was excited to try this deck but it disappointed me badly. I have given it quite a bit time to understand how to play it but i rarely win with this deck.

Which deck are you referring to?

I mentioned that before, it may seem more practical but it's confusing to pack all decks of the same type into one comment topic.

People are viewing a specific deck, clicking there on "comments" and just assume it is about the deck they are currently viewing.

Or they assume other ppl who read their post know which deck they are referring to :)

Usually it is clear what deck they are referring to, especially since most of the time there is more info provided than just "this deck sucks" - looking at the post history, this seems to be the average comment from the user though. I remember only two prior cases where I had to ask (could definitely be more, though), which is, at least for me, good enough(TM)

Currently the system is simply awful when it comes to creating threads, so it was decided to go for the system we are using now until we switch to the upcoming content management system, which should happen sometime early 2018 if I recall correctly. Once the system takes places, managing threads should be easier. If it is not, I guess I will have to revert anyway.

I remember someone, Damien maybe I'm not sure, mentioned an overhaul of the site. :)

And I didn't want to say it's terrible just sometimes not very practical :)

It appears to me that when I click on the 'comments' of a deck it continues the previous thread from an older deck. By this I mean I don't think a new thread is created for each deck that is created on the website by admin. It looks like it's retaining the comments from the previous comments sections used from prior versions of decks.

 

It is rather confusing and especially when new cards are introduced makes me actually have to work out if the comment was pre/post new cards aha or even related to the deck currently displayed ...

Wiping threads after each update would actually be detrimental (not to mention the time-consuming nature of it). So, we keep all comments. Since there are post dates, there shouldn't be a major problem with differentiating between what has been posted in the current set/patch, and what had been posted in the previous expansions.

I've been using this deck lately, and I have to say it is very enjoyable (my only change was to replace the contemptible Bittertide Hydra with Professor Putricide)... EXCEPT against anything with stamina, mostly priests.

Granted that Big Priest is currently king of the meta, so I understand getting whomped by it... but even some crabbed together hybrid priest decks are kickin' this thing's butt... and the reasons are twofold:

1) Touched on earlier, no legit card draw in Hunter. Comes with the turf, have to work around it... but, brings to point 2

2) No real late game winners. This deck is an early, aggressive, beatdown stick. Priests especially have the ability to draw the game out to the point where they can use the large, late game tools Priests have to swing the game in their favor.

However, this deck has to conserve resources to provide for a big hit for a finish. It will rarely be able to trade spell for spell, card for card, and maintain advantage, due to the aforementioned lack of replenishment.

I know most of these posts are old, but I have no idea what people are talking about. This deck is quite good. I am extremely new to HS in it's current iteration post a billion expansions it seems since I last played, and I have managed to get to Rank 7 relatively easily(and still going - plan to get legend with it eventually) with a near 60% win rate with a variation of this deck. Like every deck Secret Hunter has it's strengths and weaknesses.

      There's an unexpected balance update coming today with Druid decks getting focused, with 1 mana cost increases for mainstays Wild Growth and Nourish, encouraging more diverse deckbuilding and making the cards feel less mandatory. Paladins also get a bit of a nerf with a similar 1 cost increase on Level Up!, while Leeching Poison gets the opposite treatment, having its cost reduced by one. Finally,  Saronite Chain Gang gets a tweak to make Shudderwock more difficult to play multiple times in a match.

      Check out the full details and developer commentary on the changes below and, as usual, you'll be able to disenchant the non-basic cards that got changed for their full Arcane Dust value for two weeks.
      December 19th Update (source)
      In an update scheduled to arrive December 19 PST, the following cards will be changed.
      Developer’s Note: This balance update is focused on improving the long-term health of both Standard and Wild. We've opted to make these changes earlier in the expansion cycle than we normally consider; we'd like to hear your feedback on the timing of this update, in addition to what you think of all the individual card changes.

       
      Wild Growth – Will cost 3 mana. (Up from 2)

      Nourish – Will cost 6 mana. (Up from 5)

      Wild Growth and Nourish have been present in every mid-range, combo, and control Druid deck since their introduction in the Basic and Classic set. When cards from the Basic and Classic set are too powerful, they can have negative long-term effects on the game. Continuously playing against these cards can start to feel repetitive, and they can feel so mandatory that they stifle creative deckbuilding decisions. By increasing the mana cost of both cards by one, we expect them to be considerations in late-game control Druid decks, but more difficult to fit in strategies that don’t directly take advantage of ramping mana.
      Level Up! – Will cost 6 mana. (Up from 5)

      Odd Paladin has consistently been one of the most powerful and most played decks since its introduction in The Witchwood. By removing Level Up from Odd Paladin, we still expect it to be a competitive board control deck, just with more consistent damage output that should be easier to play around.
      Saronite Chain Gang – Now reads: Taunt. Battlecry: Summon another Saronite Chain Gang.

      Shudderwock brings an interesting combo to the table, but playing Shudderwock multiple times in a single game can be frustrating. Changing Saronite Chain Gang makes playing multiple Shudderwocks in a game much more difficult. Shudderwock should now exist as a powerful one-turn effect rather than constantly copying itself with Saronite Chain Gang’s Battlecry.
      Leeching Poison – Will cost 1 mana. (Down from 2). Now reads: Give your weapon Lifesteal this turn.

      We love the fantasy of building a powerful weapon over the course of a game with Kingsbane, but granting it a permanent Lifesteal effect with Leeching Poison resulted in an endgame with few weaknesses, as well as conflicting with our philosophy that Rogues should not have persistent self-healing effects. Making the Lifesteal effect only active for one turn should address some of the power level issues with Kingsbane Rogue’s late game.
      Once these card changes are live, players will be able to disenchant the changed non-Basic cards for their full Arcane Dust value for two weeks.

      People found out that the yearly event has already began today on Asian servers and it is expected to go live in Europe and the Americas on Tuesday the 18th of December.
      Make sure to have one slot empty in your quest log as you will get a special Winter Veil quest to "Play 100 cards in Play Mode". The reward is 4 The Boomsday Project card packs.
      There is also a new Winter Veil Wonderland Bundle for 20€/20$ that contains 6 packs from each of the following expansions: The Boomsday Project, The Witchwood, Kobolds & Catacombs, Knights of the Frozen Throne and Journey to Un'Goro.
