Just a small annoyance, in Timber Wolf's Arena section, Unleash the Hounds doesn't have a link while it does have one everywhere else on the same page.

You gotta love that irony of Freezing Trap being the "go-to" secret for aggressive Hunters when almost every single Face Hunter runs only Explosive Trap because it does 2 damage to face(also sometimes clears the board).

I think you can get Captured Jormungar, Desert Camel, Fierce Monkey, Huge Toad, Jeweled Scarab, King's Elekk, Lost Tallstrider, Mounted Raptor, Mukla's Champion, Pit Snake, Tomb Spider, Armored Warhorse, Core Rager, Jungle Moonkin, King of Beasts, Savage Combatant, Acidmaw, Dreadscale, Gahz'rilla and Malorne along with the beasts already listed in Webspinner's description. Also I'm wondering why a list of every possible card on Webspinner but not on other random spawning cards with a restriction like Piloted Shredder or Tomb Spider.

In the Feign Death's Constructed Play section, you say that Undertaker is a "strong card" to synergize with other Deathrattle cards in the deck. I'm sure this is no longer the case. Also there's a typo as you wrote "synergise".

Maybe it's just me but I think that Ball of Spiders could find its way in the new meta that is a lot more varied than before. Yes we still have Aggro, but also Fatigue Warrior, Mill Druid, that weird Priest that isn't Dragon but has too much removal to be real. I mean, those are REALLY slow decks so Ball of Spiders is less punished for being slow.

It wasn't bad just because the meta was too fast - Hunter was (and still is). Hunters can't really afford to slow down. Midrange Hunters don't run out of cards quickly enough for BoS to be a good addition, especially not with those stats. Face Hunters do run out of cards pretty quickly, but BoS is just too slow to be included.

I don't understand why you'd need to "run out of cards" to wanna play Ball of Spiders... It gives more flexibility, you don't have to make a super aggressive Hunter. You totally can! And the cards to do so are really good, but it's not necessary! I love experimenting, it throws off people and I find it funny!

Hunters have a proactive playstyle and therefore they will almost always have options as long as they have cards in hand. The beasts you can get aren't only good cards, such as Highmane, but laos awful cards such as Stonetusk Boar, Timber Wolf, Core Hound and so on. The value you will probably get will usually be low.

I guess we have to disagree about the possibilities... Just because everyone is doing it doesn't mean it is mandatory. There's a lot of really cool theorycraft decks that are so close to being really good, I believe in Hunter to be able to stalk his prey a little longer than 10 turns!

I'll side with you on this one as I personally like BoS. Depending on the meta I might throw a single copy in from time to time and when I have ran it it has helped more than it hurt. It's not OP in anyway but I do feel its value is a little underrated.

Ram wrangle any King Crushes lately? Great for battle. Terrible for farming. He eats all your livestock.

Gotta love that rng though. Many a concede when you roll that beast out.

Why is Cloaked Huntress missing from the list but the wolf grandma is in the list?

Guides for Karazhan cards are still being worked on. I believe that Kindly Grandmother was added between its reveal and Cloaked Huntress's reveal. It should be added within a few days.

Should I disenchant King crush?

He isn't really viable in this meta and there is no telling if he will be when the "New Year" rolls around. If you need the dust and don't plan on using him then I would say yes.

In the Arena section of Timber Wolf, Snipe, Dart Trap, Lock and Load, Call Pet, Cobra Shot and Starving Buzzard, you might want to take into account that they can't be drafted.

      Im making a telegram bot that can send you new decks and news from https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone.
      It already can send some decks and filter them by class and deck format.
      Im going to open bot for all users in next few weeks. 
      Any suggestions?

      Blizzard have announced that the next Hearthstone year will be called The Year of the Mammoth. Six cards from the Classic set will be moved to a new Hall of Fame set, which can only be played in Wild.
      The announcement explains that the new Hall of Fame set will include cards that are currently in the Reward set, but the big news here is the six cards that will be leaving Standard. You can see Blizzard's reasons on the link above, but I've given a few notes in this article. Those cards are shown below.
      As well as the removed cards, there will be no adventures in 2017. Instead we will be given three full expansions that will be accompanied by a single-player mission, which will be used to enhance flavour, and offer challenges. This sounds like it will be along the lines of an adventure, but optional. I feel this is a great change, as it hurts nobody.

      Azure Drake is simply in too many decks. It is a hard card to nerf without making it weak, but it is pretty much as powerful as a 5-drop can be. Removing this to free up other 5-drops makes sense.

      The reasoning for Sylvanas is similar. Blizzard's words make a lot of sense on this one, and also give an insight into the future:
      Blizzard
      Similar to Azure Drake, it’s hard to see a card at the six mana cost out-value Sylvanas. In addition, Sylvanas has the most powerful Deathrattle effect in the game—as a comparison, the Priest card Mind Control costs 10 mana. We have exciting Deathrattle build-arounds coming soon, and in combination with Sylvanas, they would be too powerful for Standard. This seems to imply that N'Zoth, the Corruptor will be making a big comeback soon!

      I suspect a lot of people will be glad to see the back of Ragnaros. The Random element was often a contentious issue.

      The removal of Power Overwhelming is a bit of a surprise, but it seems that it has mainly been nerfed because of its strength in combinaton with cards like Leeroy Jenkins and Faceless Manipulator. I would also assume that Warlock is going to be getting some fun new toys to replace it.

      Ice Lance has been removed to remove Freeze Mage and allow new strategies to develop. It is also interesting that Blizzard mention it will allow them to make cards that copy cards. That could also apply to Power Overwhelming, so I would expect something along those lines to be in the next set.

      Conceal leaving will make sense to everyone. It allows Gadgetzan Auctioneer to survive as an interesting card, and removes the annoyance of not being able to interact with your opponent.
