I a 4/3 run with this, think i might've put in too many explosive traps (4) and multi-shot (5) lol they came in really handy for the first couple games and then it went downhill from there

You exaggerated a bit with those picks :) its nice to be lucky and get tons of removal, but you sort of need a solid minion base to keep the pressure up.

Hey, did an awesome 10-3 run. Started off terrible lol was 0-1, then 3-2, and then won 7 in a row. The final game was soo close but never got that darned unleash the hounds to claim card advantage and overrun him. 

 

This was the deck i selected

 

1x Abusive Sergeant
2x Timber Wolf
1x Unleash the Hounds
1x Amani Berserker
1x Bloodfen Raptor
2x Scavenging Hyena
3x Starving Buzzard
2x Deadly Shot
1x Arcane Golem
2x Multi-Shot
1x Oasis Snapjaw
1x Fen Creeper
1x Silver Hand Knight
1x Stranglethorn Tiger
1x Tundra Rhino
1x Savannah Highmane
1x Sunwalker
1x Sylvanas Windrunner
1x Gladiator Longbow
1x Stormwind Champion
1x Sea Giant
 
Basically did a lot of unleash the hounds combos whenever i'd manage to get it. Sea Giant + Unleash the hounds was also pretty nice whenever i pulled that off.

I disagree with many of the cards. Armani berserker on highest tier? what are you thinking? Its an ok card but nothing special. Same with frost elemental on second highest, a card that is average or even bad. These are just some of the many big mistakes i see.

Hey, Candypantz

Sure, Amani dies to any 3/2 minion and is a pretty bad attacker when not enraged, however over the course of 2000 arena wins, I had made too many insanely aggressive starts and 2-for-1 trades with Amani to consider any alternative 2 mana drop.

You are right about the Frost Elemental - its worse than Boulderfist Ogre and it should be bumped down.

Are you sure you wouldn't like to bump the Hyena higher? I mean, with Hunter you should aim for beasts often when drafting, and with Hyenas in the deck, you'll have amazing opportunities. Just did a 12-2 with 3 hyenas (lucky, yes), getting them to at least 6 attack every match. They're awesome even without Hounds.

Hi, am I able to ask why cards are placed in certain tiers? Because there are a couple of cards I feel you are valuing way too high such as the voodoo doctor being in the average tier.

Voodoo doctor is a 1mana 2/1 that heals for 2hp and I do not see a great use for this card. Contrasting it to a 1 mana 1/1 charge in the stonetusk boar, what the boar has that the doctor doesnt is the combo factor. You can combo it with buzzard, timberwolf, cult master even, whereas the doctor has nothing except healing a highmane lategame. Early game it's a free card to many classes and anyone running 2/3 2drops.

Really wondering about the logic here and if it isn't too much to ask, I will ask more.

Hey guys,

Generally when it comes down to Hunter arena, you can get insane synergies which can carry your game and the spreadsheet is bumping most beasts up a tier higher because of it.

I am fairly certain your drafting aspects change dramatically if you already have a buzzard or two.

Also, we should have some more updates coming soon for the arena spreadsheets.

      If you're not a fan of playing huge Legendary minions every turn, then you may need to rethink your approach to Hearthstone.
       
      The Hearthstone team is on a roll with Tavern Brawls! After Top 2, one of the most well-received Tavern Brawls in recent memory, this week's Tavern Brawl is titled  "Cloneball!".
       

       
      Each player's deck is filled with four copies of random Legendary minions, including minions from the Wild format. Players will also receive a number of copies of "Offensive Play", a card which reduces the cost of your next Legendary minion by 3 Mana, as well as all other copies of that same Legendary in your hand:
       

       
      Though it's difficult to game plan for a specific strategy as the Legendary minions you receive appear to be random, I thought it was pretty sweet to play Loatheb into Onyxia into Onyxia into Onyxia. Slamming huge Legendary minions onto the battlefield is one of the most fun things to do in all of Hearthstone, and you'll get to do it again and again in this week's brawl!
      As is true with most brawls where the class cards aren't incredibly important, Warlock is strong by virtue of Life Tap. However, Paladin has some of the strongest Legendary minions in the history of the Hearthstone, so you could also try to high-roll a deck full of Tirion Fordrings and Wickerflame Burnbristles.

      The targeted cards are Spiteful Summoner, Possessed Lackey, Call to Arms, Dark Pact, Crystal Core and Naga Sea Witch.
      The community's prayers have been answered as nerfs for six problematic cards have been announced.
      UPDATE - The nerfs went live earlier today. You can disenchant the affected cards and get full dust value until June 5, 2018.
      Four of these cards are Spiteful Summoner, Possessed Lackey, Call to Arms and Naga Sea Witch. Even though there were a lot of interesting suggestions as to how these cards could be handled, Team 5 chose the simplest, yet elegant, way to weaken them: increase their mana cost. The first three cards will have their mana cost increased by 1, whereas Naga Sea Witch will jump to an extreme 8 mana!
      Dark Pact will now restore 4 health to your hero, instead of 8. Lastly, Crystal Core will undergo a second nerf in its history: it will now produce 4/4 minions. Do you think it will survive even its second nerf like Unleash the Hounds or Sylvanas Windrunner did?
      Some of the cards that we know the team was considering changing, but will remain unscathed for now are Sunkeeper Tarim, Doomguard, Bloodreaver Gul'dan and Baku Paladin Hero Power.
      These changes will take effect after the end of the HCT playoffs at the end of May.
      Daxxarri
      In an update that will arrive some time after the HCT Playoffs are complete, we will be making balance changes to the following cards:
      Naga Sea Witch – Will cost 8 mana. (Up from 5)
      In update 9.1, we introduced a rule change to increase the consistency of Hearthstone game mechanics. The change affected precisely when Naga Sea Witch’s cost change was applied to cards. This allowed it to be combined with the cost reduction effects on giants, and as a result, it became fairly easy to reduce their mana cost to 0.
       
      We think Hearthstone is better all around when interactions are consistent, and we like the fact that a Naga Sea Witch giants deck archetype exists. That said, we also understand that, with its current functionality, this deck can generate early board states that are unreasonable for most classes to deal with. By increasing the cost of Naga Sea Witch to 8 mana, the deck’s concept remains intact, but the combo is delayed until later in a match when more decks are likely to have the tools to handle the arrival of so many giants.

      Spiteful Summoner – Will cost 7 mana. (Up from 6)
      After set rotation arrived with the Year of the Raven, Spiteful Summoner became more powerful and consistent when used in decks containing 10 mana cost spells. This is because the pool of 10 mana cost minions in Standard is smaller, so players could more reliably count on getting a powerful minion from Spiteful Summoner’s effect. Even considering the deckbuilding sacrifices that an effective Spiteful Summoner deck requires, we think that increasing the card’s mana cost to 7 is more in line with the powerful outcomes that are possible when it’s used alongside cards like Ultimate Infestation.

      Dark Pact – Will restore 4 Health. (Down from 8)
      There are two aspects of Dark Pact that make it powerful. At a cost of 1 mana, it’s easily used alongside cards like Carnivorous Cube, Possessed Lackey, and Spiritsinger Umbra for big combo turns. It also gives Warlocks enough healing potential so that aggressively using Lifetap and playing cards like Kobold Librarian and Hellfire feel less consequential. We left Dark Pact’s cost intact so it can still be used as part of interesting combos, but lessened the healing it provides so Warlocks will need to more carefully consider how much damage they take over the course of a match.

      Possessed Lackey – Will cost 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      Some of the card combos involving Possessed Lackey present situations that are too difficult to deal with in the early-to-mid stages of the game. Increasing its mana cost to 6 delays some of those powerful card combos to turns that are easier for opposing decks to overcome.

      Call to Arms – Will cost 5 mana. (Up from 4)
      Currently, there are three popular Paladin decks: Even Paladin, Murloc Paladin, and Odd Paladin. Among the three decks, Even Paladin and Murloc Paladin have consistently been the most powerful two archetypes over the first few weeks since the release of The Witchwood. Call to Arms moving to 5 mana restricts it from being used in Even decks and reduces its power somewhat when used in Murloc and other Paladin decks.
      We expect that players will experiment with Call to Arms at 5 mana in Odd Paladin decks, but we don’t expect this card to have much of an impact. This is because Odd Paladin can’t access 2 mana minions (meaning Call to Arms could only ever summon three 1 mana minions if played in that deck).

      Note: As a result of this change, we are adjusting the “Greymane’s Alliance” deck recipe. It will now have two copies of Saronite Chain Gang in place of Call to Arms.
      The Caverns Below – The quest reward, Crystal Core, will read: For the rest of the game, your minions are 4/4. (Down from 5/5)
      The Quest Rogue deck uses a strategy that’s strong against slow, control-heavy and fatigue decks, but struggles against most other deck archetypes. There’s a fine line between being powerful against very slow decks and being powerful versus virtually all non-aggressive strategies. By changing the quest reward to make the resulting minions 4/4 instead of 5/5, Quest Rogue should still be a reasonable option versus slow, extreme late-game decks, but offer a less polarized matchup with more moderate control decks.

      (source) Are you happy with these changes? Do you think some cards will still be playable or are all six cards useless now? What's your opinion on the unchanged cards?
