I'm sorry, but this deck is absolutely horrible.

It's okay early game, but by turn 7 you're out of cards and there's no reliable way to get more. Truly terrible.

This is a Basic deck. This means that your card-drawing options are limited. Even so, it includes 2 Starving Buzzards, which can draw you a number of cards (just make sure you hold on to the Buzzards until you can play on or more other beasts on the same turn). It also includes 2 Novice Engineers. There isn't really much more card draw you can get beyond that.

 

Just generate and maintain card advantage by wisely using your cards. Do not squander them. For example, never play Kill Command, Arcane Shot, or even the Battlecries of the Elven Archer or Ironforge Rifleman to damage the opponent (unless you can actually kill them). Instead, save these cards to use against the enemy minions, and to protect your own minions.

What is the reason for Tundra rhino in this deck? Especially 2 of them? There are not that many beasts in the deck and on its own its not that good enough imo. Wouldn't Frostwolf Warlord be a better choice? Otherwise the only big minion in this deck will be the champion. What about tundra rhino + core hound?

I cannot agree with this more, I have actually had more success with this deck than I have the Low Budget one (well the pre-March 12 update) and it really comes down to timing and eliminating higher threats with battlecries and spells.

Should you be considering swapping out the Rhinos, you would be better off with Boulderfist Ogre rather than Frostwolf Warlord in this particular deck, however keep in mind that each beast you take out of the deck diminishes the value of your Starving Buzzard and Houndmaster.

You should consider keeping the rhinos, dropping all non beast/non hunter cards and load this with beasts.  Did whoever built this guide even play a hunter deck?

I find that now that my deck has more strategy, I keep drawing cards that buff beast minions, but almost never draw beasts. So, I'll be left sitting there with beast-buffing cards and no beasts drawn. IcyVeins claims luck has little to do with success, but the three most recent practice rounds I played with this deck, I lost because I drew all minion-buffers and no beasts. If it's not luck, then I'm guessing it's the deck build.

 

Will try getting rid of neutral cards and replacing with beasts.

I assume he meant the one you get automatically from the beginning, called "Basic deck". Oh, the confusing names.

Excact same thing. After 2 rounds losing to the computer expert opponent I've given up on this build. There are no beasts in the deck to actually buff. I kept on holding onto my buffs, waiting for the beast cards to drop and they never came. My Starving Buzzards would just sit there useless because I had no beasts to play them along side.

 

I've had success with the Rogue deck but this Hunter deck I just can't get results with.

9/30 changelog updates aren't reflected in the deck itself.

Hey, I had actually messed up the changelog pretty badly tongue.png It should be fixed now ^^

      Dave Kosak is here in the latest Hearthside Chat video to talk about the lore of Rastakhan's Rumble. He also revealed two Priest cards: the Loa of Death, Bwonsamdi, and his Spirit!
      If you haven't played Battle for Azeroth, the latest WoW expansion, then this video is going to be helpful in understanding the backstory of Rastakhan's Rumble:
      The two Priest cards revealed in the video synergise very well with each other:

      As Peter Whalen and Liv Breeden mentioned in their r/Hearthstone interview, Spirits are meant to be build-around cards and this is pretty apparent with Spirit of the Dead. Apart from the obvious synergy with Bwonsamdi, the Priest Spirit can work wonders in a Clone Priest deck along with Zerek's Cloning Gallery. Spirit of the Dead can also find a spot in other archetypes like Resurrect, Big and Deathrattle Priest. The card itself is quite slow and requires some setting-up, but it looks very versatile.

      Bwonsamdi, the Loa of Death, can be used simiply to draw Spirit of the Dead, then you can kill him while the Spirit is up and shuffle him back to your deck. It's easy to see the Spirit work without Bwonsamdi, but the opposite - Bwonsamdi working without his Spirit - looks like a slim possibility. Given that all Class cards in this expansion are designed to work as a "team", we might see a card (apart from the Spirit) that can make Bwonsamdi more viable. Otherwise, the Hunter Quest never really caught on, so why would it work in a traditionally anti-aggro class like Priest?

      We have a new Tavern Brawl this week and the rules are simple: both players get to have two turns, instead of one.
      This starts from the very beginning of the game, therefore giving a big advantage to Player 1. Don't be surprised if your opponent concedes when he/she finds out that he/she has to go second (or if you have to do it)!
      Doomsayer is a must-have on this Tavern Brawl, since it clears the board immediately. Flappy Bird is also a useful card and Aggro decks are generally favoured. OTK decks also can work great since you have two turns to set up your... one-turn kill. You can also experiment with Open the Waygate and Temporus; both cards work and they give you a third turn!

      The Hearthstone heroes are trying to enjoy Rastakhan's Rumble but a fellow spectator named Belligerent Gnome is annoying Rexxar!
      Wronchi have released the second part of their Rastakan's Rumble series of animations. You remember that in the first part the nine heroes were trying to get into the Gurubashi Arena. Now, we see that Rexxar, Jaina and Anduin are enjoying the games but there's a little fellow that's too loud for Rexxar's taste.
      And here he is:

      No wonder Rexxar is angry since this is definitely a Silverback Patriarch power creep! Although one would expect that Gul'dan would be equally angry, since this is a Vulgar Homunculus with a condition for every class!
      To start the serious discussion on this card, this looks like an anti-aggro tool that can also probably find its place in aggro decks as well. It's hard to see the Battlecry trigger on turn 2 exactly, making this a bit of a slower card. Dragon Priest used to have a similar card in Wyrmrest Agent, which was easier to trigger. Even decks could be a good place for Belligerent Gnome - Even Shaman, in particular, since I don't see Warlocks dropping their beloved Homunculus.
      It's definitely a versatile card with a lot of potential and it seems balanced - for now.
