Just one small non-basic tweak, for people with a little Arcane Dust: You may want to put in Faerie Dragon instead of Bloodfen Raptor. In exchange for losing the Beast type (which admittedly is relevant with almost a third of the deck), the Dragon fares much better against Mage, Hunter, Shaman, and Priest.

tbh i dont really understand this deck at all.

yeah you were very clear that you need to go at the enemy char with alot of damage early game and finish him off mid game.

i have played 5 games atm with this deck and i got slapped every game, early to end game.

and yes i have made every char and used all that you had on your list.

luckily for me 1 of my opponents fucked up big time and i could win 1 late game with a bit of luck.

im sorry to say cause i love icy veins BIG time, i really do but iam not gonna play with this deck 1 more game sorry.

i dont see how this can be good

This deck works quite well actually. I made some personal tweaks such as trackings and flare to speed the deck up and do well against the mirror/rush paladins/mages, and hunter's marks to deal with those huge early taunts that druids seem to love. Hounds to 3 mana has slowed the deck down, but it needed to be done, it was overpowered in the hands of good players. Prior to the hound nerf I won 90% of my games in the rank 7-10 bracket prior to season end. With hound nerf I still win 70% of my games. Still this needs to be revised for nerfs and such.

Hi. I find your decks very interesting and fun to play, and also a good way to better understand how the game works. Are you planning to update for Season 3 also all these Hunter decks and the "Aggro/Rush" Rogue decks? Thank you very much!

All our decks are updated for season 3. If there's something not "modified" for Season 3, it probably means we didn't think any changes were needed.

 

And thanks for your words :)

With the new Maexxna (the new legendary you earn when defeating the first 3 bosses of Naxxaramas) out it would be a great addition to one of the hunter decks as it's counted as a beast and works basically the same way as the Emperor Cobra. The two together could get very dirty and work well in just about any hunter deck. I tried to link the cards from Wowhead but I couldn't figure out how to do it, sorry.

Maexxna is great for control hunters indeed (until you get a Kodo :D)

Finally new decks, after the Buzzard nerf. ^^ Can't wait to try the legendary one. Tho I need to craft The Black Knight and Leeroy Jenkins (disenchanted it). What can I substitute them with? I've put a Reckless Rocketer to substitute Jenkins and Maexxna for Knight, but I think Owl/Spellbreaker or Kodo would be better to replace Knight.

First, I wanna say I am a golden Hunter, so I won more than 500 matches with this class. So I know what I am doing. I was rank 11 when I started playing with this deck, and now I am 10.

 

Hunter Face Aggro/Rush Naxx Deck:

 

9W/11L (20 matches)

Hunter - 4W/4L

Shaman - 1W/3L

Mage - 1W/0L

Paladin - 1W/0L

Warrior - 0W/1L

Rogue - 0W/0L

Druid - 0W/1L

Warlock - 1W/1L

Priest - 1W/1L

 

In my opinion, Undertaker feels a little useless in this deck full of charge and instant damage. What surprised me was the power of the Arcane Shot. I won kinda 4 times because of it! ^^ After 20 matches, I can say this deck is not as strong as it is supposed to be. Because this is supposed to be the strongest Hunter deck from here, right? And with this deck I have advanced only 1 place in the Rank after 20 matches. Hmph, I am gonna still test it. Anyway, I really like how fast I can damage the enemy with this deck. It amazed me how many times I won with the enemy having full board control. Maybe I am making mistakes and that is why I am not winning as much as I should with this deck.

"After 20 matches, I can say this deck is not as strong as it is supposed to be. Because this is supposed to be the strongest Hunter deck from here, right?"

 

What gives you that impression? It's a powerful deck, but it is not necessarily better than the other Legend ranked deck, or even the Undertaker Midrange. It depends on the matchups you face and the state of the meta you are playing in as to which deck is better.

 

I would start by saying just because you've played a lot of Hunter, does not mean you are playing outright Face Aggro correctly. Despite having a reputation for being brain dead and linear, playing outright Aggro is one of the hardest things to do correctly. If you make one small decision wrong, it can lead to losing the games. Where as playing Control often means the game goes longer so you have more time to recover from a mistake.

 

I can vouch for the deck, I've played it successfully in Legend Rank, and it has been used in tournament by many high level players. Looking at your matchup sheet, it seems like you should be performing better than you have been. This deck struggles when up against a lot of Warrior and Priest, but the matchups you've faced seem quite appropriate.

 

Regarding the Undertaker, you need some early game stability in the deck. It's important to get some sort of board position in the opening turns to build a platform to compound damage on. Since like you observed, often you will be hopelessly behind on board in the late-game, it's essentially to get ahead at the start and try and leverage that position for as long as you can.

I've uploaded 17 decks since the release of GvG, sorry if the specific thing you're looking for hasn't been uploaded yet, but i'm only one man, and I have to cater to everyone.

Do you think is alright to upload 4 paladin deck, but for Hunters just one NOT new deck? Not to say that rogue has NOTHING new! XD You could at least 1 for each class, then more, not a hundred to one and nothing to other. No offence. Just that I was so looking forward to see a control deck from you guys, because the deck from here were always good. Everyday I refresh the page to see if the thing came up.

Its because Paladin was one of the only classes that Sottle hadn't made a deck for before GvG so it makes sense

Exactly, I hadn't reached Paladin or Warrior at all before the release of the new set, so they took priority when it came to getting GvG decks up.

I am a new player. How exactly is the arcane dust cost calculated when it comes to naxxrammas cards? For example, one aggro/rush deck costs merely 880, but naxxramus cards do not seem to be able to be crafted without earning them in the naxxramas set. I do not wish to spend money on the game, and the first step of the naxxramus quest is 700 gold. This is equivalent to 7 classic packs. Assuming 4 common cards and one rare card, each classic pack is worth at least 40 arcane dust, and 7 classic packs (700 gold) is worth 280 arcane dust. Are calculations like that factored into the deck cost?

Found a little mistake at the Control deck.

There is no loatheb in that deck.

With what would be good to substitute Dr. Boom, Ragnaros and the guy that destroys the weapon? XD Because I do not have them atm. I was thinking of Loatheb instead of that guy, King Krush instead of Ragnaros and for Dr. Boom?

Something with a powerful Deathrattle effect is best, so you can get good value out of Feign Death, which is one of the (many) advantages of Dr. Boom, so Cairne, Sneed's Old Shredder etc.

Hello! First of all I wanna thank you for the awesome decks. And now, my suggestion, I mean.. what I wanna ask for, are 2 decks. I know they don't really fit in the current meta and that you won't be able to get with 'em past rank 5 I think, but still. I'd like to see how would 'em be made by Sottle or someone pro. Let's call 'em "Just for fun decks". First is a control hunter. I know there is one still, but it is out of date, it's not playable anymore (in my opinion). I'd like to see with what will ya come for a control hunter. And the 2nd that I'd REALLY like to see, is a beast synergy deck. Yea, I know the beast synergy is pretty dead, but still. A deck with Gahz, with Krush, idk. A full beast deck with beast synergy. I'd like to see how would it work. Please do it! Thanks a lot for readin'! ^^

      Will these three new Treant cards see play in the meta? Or will they come up short like the hand-size cards from The Witchwood?
       
      Three new Treant-themed cards were revealed today by PCGamer:
       

       
      First up we have Dendrologist. The floor on this card is solid, as a 2 Mana 2/3 is passable in a pinch. The ceiling on Dendrologist is higher than you might think, as his Battlecry is quite strong. Druid might have more high-quality spells than any other class in the game (Wild Growth, Nourish, Ultimate Infestation, Branching Paths, Naturalize, and Savage Roar to name a few), which leads me to believe that Dendrologist will be a powerhouse if Druid gets sufficient Treant support in this expansion.
       

       
      3 Mana for 4/4 worth of stats is already a great deal on its own, and the added Treant synergy puts this card over the top. The fact that this card creates two bodies makes it even better in aggro decks that look to go wide and finish with cards like Fungalmancer. This is a very reasonable card to curve into on turn 3, and it hints that the Treant deck will likely be quite aggressive.
       

       
      Finally we get Mulchmuncher, a big fat Mech with Rush and a dangerously tempting Mana reduction effect. We know from experience with Corridor Creeper and Giant cards how strong it can be to play big Minions for low amounts of Mana, but it won't be that easy to reduce Mulchmuncher's cost. If the Mana Treants from Living Mana count as Treants for this card, then I can easily see Mulchmuncher as finisher in an aggressive Treant decks.
      Will these new Treant cards turn Force of Nature and Witchwood Apple into playable cards? Or do you think the Treant cards will fall flat like the hand-size cards from The Witchwood? Let us know in the comment section, and be sure to check out our Boomsday Hub for more spoilers from the upcoming expansion.

      The latest Hearthside Chat with Peter Whalen revealed Supercollider, Flobbidinous Floop, and Whizbang the Wonderful from The Boomsday Project.
       
      In the latest Hearthside Chat, Senior Game Designer Peter Whalen explained some of the themes (science) and inspirations (more science) for The Boomsday Project. In doing so, he spoiled three new incredibly exciting cards. If you're interested in watching the video (which is just 4:59 seconds long), you can do so right here:
       
       
      Card Reveals
       

       
      This card gets an "A" for flavor, as I don't think its possible to come up with a better design for a card called "Supercollider" in a science-themed set.
      This Warrior weapon has the potential to be a 2 or 3 for 1, as it can set up trades quite easily if you attack your opponent's largest minion with it. However, attacking your opponent's largest minion means you will also be dealing plenty of face damage to yourself, making high amounts of armor gain a requirement for putting this card in your deck. For that reason, Supercollider plays excellently with Baku the Mooneater, and I expect it to see play in Odd Warrior decks.
       

       
      Next up is another card with an excellent name, Flobbidinous Floop. This guy provides a Faceless Manipulator-style effect for Druid decks for just 4 Mana, which will almost certainly make him a combo piece in a variety of Druid decks. Between Innervate, Twig of the World Tree, and Biology Project, there will almost certainly a few new OTKs with Flobbidinous Floop. He can also be used in Big Druid decks one turn after playing a huge minion, such as Ysera, Hadronox, or The Lich King, to become a 3/4 copy of a card with a powerful effect. Expect to see plenty of Flobbidinious Floop in the new meta!
       

       
      Next we get Whizbang the Wonderful, which is one of the most unique and exciting cards in the history of Hearthstone. What does he do? Let me show you:
       

       
      Whizbang the Wonderful replaces your entire deck. He replaces your hero, and he names your new deck "Whizbang is Wonderful". When you enter a game with this deck, you will be randomly handed 1 of 18 recent deck recipes by Blizzard at the start of the game.
      Will Whizbang be competitively viable? Almost certainly not, but I think that question is almost entirely missing the point. By adding Whizbang to the game, Blizzard has offered new players a way to access 18 different for just 1600 dust! Though its unlikely these 18 premade decks will be 100% meta optimal, they will almost certainly be viable enough for newer players to climb the earlier ranks while playing a wide variety of decks and learning new cards. This is the closest thing that Blizzard will probably ever do to selling pre-constructed decks (something that many other cards games do), which in my eyes is a major step forward. Will tryhards be disappointed when they open Whizbang? Probably. But not every Legendary minion needs to be a home run for the hardcore audience. Whizbang is the new player's best friend, and will surely add much more joy to the game of Hearthstone than he takes away.
      What do you think about today's spoilers? Will Supercollider see play? Can you find any new OTKs with Flobbidinous Floop? And are you as excited about Whizbang the Wonderful as I am? Let us know in the comments what you think about these new cards, and be sure to check out our Boomsday Hub for more spoilers from the upcoming expansion.

      A callback to Annoy-o-Tron, this new Mech card could be a serious player in the meta.
       
      Episode 2 of "Enter Boom Labs" has revealed another new Magnetic card from The Boomsday Project, called Annoy-o-Module:
       

       
      A callback to Annoy-o-Tron, this guy gains Magnetic and 1/2 worth of stats for just 2 Mana! The stats and keywords this card instantly adds to another Mech seem quite strong when you compare it to Blessing of Kings, which adds 2 more Attack to a minion but does not add Divine Shield and Taunt. This card isn't awful when played on it's own, and it plays well in a deck with Corpsetaker. Annoy-o-Module checks enough for boxes for me, and I full expect it to see play in the upcoming meta.
      Episode 2 of "Enter Boom Labs" is short but sweet, and you can watch the full video right here:
       
       
      Do you think Annoy-o-Module impact the game as much as Annoy-o-Tron did? Let us know in the comment section, and be sure to check out our Boomsday Hub for more spoilers from the upcoming expansion.

      Use Mini-Rag to destroy enemy minions and level up your"Wow!" emote in this week's Tavern Brawl.
       
      In celebration of The Midsummer Fire Festival, this week's Tavern Brawl is all about Ragnaros, Lightlord. Well, Mini-Rag to be more specific:
       

       
      A 2/3 Ragnaros with Immune will start the game on one side of the board. At the end of each turn, Mini-Rag will deal 1 damage to a random target on the other side of the board for each Attack he has, then swap to the other side of the board. Each time he kills an enemy minion he will gain 1 Attack, growing in power as the game progresses.
       

       
      Due to the sudden pressure that Mini-Rag applies to both players, I highly recommend playing an Aggro deck. I used Odd Rogue in my first game to take down an Odd Hunter. You could also play an anti-aggro deck to try and counter all the aggro decks running around, but be sure to play some self-healing such as Branching Paths or Healing Rain.
       

       
      The Tavern Brawl will track how many minion kills that Mini-Rag racks up. After 8, 30, and 60 Minion kills, you will level up the fireworks in your "Wow!" emote. This is a returning Tavern Brawl from last year's festival, and your running total of Mini-Rag kills from last year's festival carries over to this year. Happy hunting!
