He is right no snake traps nor hounds so mentioning it is pointless. Deck is still very strong tho through my tests of it.

Not trying to troll, but this deck and any deck like it that has the Undertaker, is PURE luck...

If you don't get Undertaker in your first hand or before round 3 you're basically gonna lose, because by then you've accumulated most of your Death cards, which you can't play now because they have cards to instantly remove them from the board, and you also don't wanna play because "what if I get him next draw".

Point is, yes there's "big" cards in the deck, which MAY help later, but all these decks rely too heavily on ONE card, which if you don't get in the first few draws you've taken so much damage, and they've got such a board presence you can't come back from it.

If you got to legendary using JUST this deck, then it was PURE luck, I played 4 games in a row, lost every game... Why? Because I never got undertaker.

Uh, yeah. So that's the kind of attitude that means you're probably never going to improve at this game, and you'll spend all your time losing to players and moaning about how lucky they were.

 

The deck plays 8 1-drops. 8 of them. Any of them are fine to play on turn 1. The idea is to start your momentum by getting on the board early, yes the dream is the Undertaker start, but it's by no means necessary. Especially with new GvG cards like Glaivezooka that help you stabilise bad starts, and the 4-drop Deathrattles that can bring more value to your Undertaker if you draw it later.

 

If you can't win without drawing Undertaker turn 1, that's testimony to you as a player, not the deck.

Nice, but.. it is just the same thing... I.. was looking forward to see a control hunter deck, or at least a deck where I will see... lets say... something else.

How about Feign Death...what could I take out for it? Maybe a Gleave? ....what do you guys think?

Feign Death is really weak in this deck, the Deathrattle effects just aren't that powerful to justify spending a card to activate them. If you want Feign Death in Hunter, then more powerful effects like Cairne, Sylvanas and Nerubian Egg are required. A deck with that concept may come later, but it's not a great idea in this one.

For those without access to the Naxx cards, what cards might be half-decent substitutes for them?

Unfortunately, the Undertaker synergy is pretty much vital to this deck's playstyle. Once you take Undertaker, Mad Scientist, Webspinner etc out of the equation, this isn't really a deck that's going to work too well.

Just so everyone knows, I used this deck to hit Legend today. So no excuses guys :P

Any chance of some play through videos? Can't seem to put this deck into practice :(

Video content is definitely something we want to produce, but I need to make some upgrades to my home setup before I can do it. In the meantime, the best thing you can do is try and catch my stream when i'm live :)

I'm currently missing some of these cards, so I threw in a Baron Rivendare to fill out the final slot. do you think this is a value add in this deck?

Baron is fairly weak for the same reason that Feign Death is, the actual Deathrattles in the deck are not that spectacular, i'd just go for another solid Deathrattle minion like a Harvest Golem or Mech Yeti if you're missing a card around that point in the curve.

This deck is insane. biggrin.png Since I started playing it I am more than 75% wins. I have claimed the ladder from rank 15 to rank 9 as for now.

Just want to tell you that this deck is awesome. started at rank 20, now im at rank 10 with maybe 4 losses total. To everyone saying this is pure luck, its not true,. i won most of my games without even drawing undertaker at all. you just need to know when to hit face (actually most of the time). and DON'T BE AFRAID to use your weapon to hit face even when opponent has minions on board. i won 3/10 games just because few turns earlier i decided to go for face with Glaivezooka.
Im looking forward to more of your guides. this deck opened my eyes and made me buy naxx and play hunter. 
Cheers!

I found this one better: http://www.hearthpwn.com/decks/136213-gvg-face-hunter-season-9-legend-24-na

I mean, with this deck I couldn't go more than rank 10, but with the one from that link I got to 3.

But that is a face hunter deck, this one has a little midrange style. ^^

 

These are some examples how hunter decks can be now. For example the mech cancer from trump(more like zoo type):

http://www.hearthpwn.com/decks/148657-mechanical-cancer-by-trump

or this control deathrattle:

http://www.hearthpwn.com/decks/139249-spark-explosive-snipe-s9

Even I made a deck which is so much fun! Have a look:

http://www.hearthpwn.com/decks/149024-sniping-yah-azz

With this one I won always with Gahz'rilla combos, always 24/48 instant damage to the face. 

 

Hunter is so viable right now. There are so many types of decks we can make. Deathrattle, control, zoo, beast synergy type, not only the same undertaker style always. 

 

I am still looking forward to see the future IcyVeins hunter decks!

By the way, don't take it the wrong way, I don't say this deck is not good. I am just saying that... we really need to let the poor Undertaker take some rest and try something different. It is not a dream now, Hunter is viable as Control atm. I just wanted to show you some examples of decks. I hope you didn't misunderstood. ^^

Well, as I mentioned earlier I made the climb from Rank 4 to Legend in a single day with this deck, which is pretty insane without access to winstreaks, so I still believe it to be extremely powerful.

But, you'll be pleased to hear a Control Hunter deck is submitted, reviewed and now just awaiting posting :)

By the way, sorry for the double-post, but you really should think of including explosiv trap instead of freazing trap in this deck, in my opinion. Because of the meta. I always find myself fighting against too many 2-health guys with no answer to them. Because this deck is not so aggro like the title says. Is more midrange, and without the explosiv removal, you will always find yourself owned by a horde of 2-health minions... like I said, because of the freakin mech-meta.

I don't have Eaglehorn Bow, I replaced it with Harvest golem, like in my previous hunter deck (with which I reached lvl 5 without much effort but I was stuck at lvl 3 when I tried to climb higher). I would like to know if this is the least worst option to replace the bow or do you have another suggestion that would reasonnably compensate this card ?

 

And would still rank this deck legend without the bow ?

      Doom in the Tomb is now live and the update comes with all-new 1,000 Win Portrait Rewards and 23 cards that are temporarily stepping out of Wild back into Standard. Note that the cards will remain in Standard until the next major update and exact end dates and times will be announced in the weeks ahead.
      Blizzard (Source)
      A new Hearthstone update has just arrived, featuring the “Doom in the Tomb” Hallow’s End event, Wild cards temporarily returning to Standard, portrait rewards for dedicated Hearthstone players, and much more!
      New Event - Doom in the Tomb!

      Pack your torches and latch your helmets, Heroes. The Headless Horseman has infiltrated Uldum’s deserted desert tombs, outfitted himself with powerful relics, and has set his sights on besting the battling Leagues! The new Doom in the Tomb event starts today, October 8, and will last until October 30. Here’s what’s in store:

      Week 1: Doom in the Tomb, Part 1
      Gear up with your favorite member from the League of E.V.I.L and delve into the Haunted Temple, full of the baddest bosses in Uldum! The clock is running, too – race to set the record for the fastest Temple run! Rewards Complete a run in under 1 hour and earn a Rastakhan’s Rumble Card Pack. Complete a run in under 40 minutes to earn a Golden Common Ancient Mysteries!
      Week 2: Doom in the Tomb, Part 2
      E.V.I.L has their turn, and now it’s up to Reno and the League of Explorers to join the run and flex their Temple diving speed. New enemies and challenges await!

      Rewards Complete a run in under 1 hour and receive a Golden Common Temple Berserker Complete a run in under 40 minutes to earn a Golden Rare Generous Mummy
      Week 3: The Haunted Carousel
      Get ready for the big mix-up! In this Tavern Brawl, you’ll need to strategize around minions constantly rotating board positions – all while controlling the Horseman’s time-shifted Dreadsteeds!

      Rewards Summon 100 Dreadsteeds to earn a Rise of Shadows Card Pack Dual-Class Heroes

      The Dual-Class Arena Hallow’s Eve dress-up party is back! When you start an Arena run during the Doom in the Tomb event, you’ll choose a Hero, then a Hero Power, and card offerings will feature cards from BOTH of those classes, in addition to neutral cards.
      Players who have an active Arena run when this begins will have their current run ended and will receive an Arena Ticket as compensation. To ensure that players have a chance to try out this devilish dual-class deck-building dress-up party, anyone who logs in during each of the first two weeks will receive one Arena Ticket per week! This event coincides with our normal Arena rotation. The new Arena sets in rotation are as follows: Curse of Naxxramas Goblins vs. Gnomes Blackrock Mountain The Grand Tournament League of Explorers Whispers of the Old Gods One Night in Karazhan Mean Streets of Gadgetzan Journey to Un'Goro Knights of the Frozen Throne Kobolds & Catacombs Hex & Flex Bundles

      Hex Bundle
      If you thought the League of E.V.I.L. was securely under wraps, think again! Arch-Villain Rafaam has leveraged his lackeys and put together the Hex Bundle, 20 Rise of Shadows card packs and a random Rise of Shadows Legendary card at the discounted price of $19.99 USD. Flex Bundle
      Reno’s vest just doesn’t have room for bulging biceps AND stacks of card packs. That’s why he’s whipped together the Flex Bundle! Get 20 Saviors of Uldum packs and a random Saviors of Uldum Legendary card at the discounted price of $19.99 USD. Standard Shake-Up

      Starting with today’s patch and lasting until our next major update, 23 cards from across Hearthstone history are temporarily stepping out of Wild and back into Standard. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get straight into the action. These cards will be considered "event" cards, which essentially means that they're temporary copies and not permanent additions to your collection. Even if you already own the cards you'll still receive these event copies, and when the event ends they'll disappear.
      IMPORTANT NOTE: While these cards were re-introduced during the Doom in the Tomb event, they will remain in Standard past the event's conclusion, until the launch of our next major update. More details will be shared, including exact end dates and times, in the coming weeks.
      Card List: Druid: Astral Communion Kun the Forgotten King Mage: Babbling Book Flamewaker Paladin: Mysterious Challenger Avenge Hunter: Lock and Load Call of the Wild Shaman: Evolve Thing from Below Rogue: Shaku, the Collector Swashburglar Priest: Lightbomb Vol'jin Warlock: Imp Gang Boss Renounce Darkness Warrior: Varian Wrynn Bloodhoof Brave Neutral: N'Zoth, the Corruptor Sylvanas Windrunner Ragnaros the Firelord The Curator Emperor Thaurissan 1,000 Win Portrait Rewards

      The time has come for dedicated Hearthstone players to flex their Hero mastery! We’re introducing new portraits earned by achieving 1,000 Ranked or Arena wins with each class. Wins earned before this update goes live will retroactively count towards these totals.

      Blizzard today announced a new event coming to the game on October 8. It's called Doom in the Tomb. Check out what's in store for Hearthstone this month!
      UPDATE
      Placeholder for tweet 1180177096972222464 Blizzard (Source)
      Legends have told of dangers lurking within the Haunted Temple of Uldum and the grand ancient treasures they conceal. Of course, “treasure” was all anyone had to mention to get Reno and Rafaam on board, and now their sights are set on acquiring the temple’s powerful artifacts for their own campaigns!
      It won’t be an easy task, though. While our Heroes and Villains battle to push deeper through the Haunted Temple, the Headless Horseman has resorted to a nefarious contingency and opened a sealed sarcophagus full of WILD terrors. Now it will be up to you to aid the conquests of good, or E.V.I.L, in a race to uncover the tomb’s precious secrets and escape the doom in the tomb!

      Step into the Haunted Tomb
      The spooky spelunking adventures begin at 10:00 AM PT on October 8 and end at 9:00 AM PT on October 30 – three weeks packed full of new activities to participate in:

      Unique Tavern Brawls

      Treasures from the Tomb!

      23 cards from across Hearthstone history have been unsealed from Wild and unleashed by the Headless Horseman! Until our next major update, these cards are stepping out of Wild and will be playable in Standard matches. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get straight into the action.

      Today we get a look at some of the smaller stuff coming up in Hearthstone's future, including new events like dual-class arenas, 23 old cards returning to standard (Ragnaros and N'zoth were mentioned), new class portraits for 1000 wins, and plenty of quality of life improvements!
      Behind the Doors (source)
      While we’re constantly recruiting lackeys, tinkering with experimental tech, and delving into dusty tombs to bring you new Hearthstone expansions and Adventures, we’re also hard at work on some awesome, albeit less flashy, new stuff. In this blog we’ll shine a light on some of the smaller, but still exciting new features, events, and changes coming to Hearthstone in the near future.

       
      Adding More Events

      After the overwhelmingly positive response to the recent Fire Fest-E.V.I.L. event, we’re looking for more opportunities to introduce even more large-scale in-game events with rewards, themed Tavern Brawls, and changes that could temporarily (or permanently!) create fun new Hearthstone experiences for players.
      We’re starting off with a new event in just a couple weeks featuring Dungeon Run-inspired Tavern Brawls, dual-class Arenas, Legendary quest rewards, and some meta-shifting changes outlined in the “Shaking up Standard Play” section below.
      We’ll have more to share on this sensationally spooky event on October 4, but in the meantime . . . try not to lose your head!
       

      Shaking up Standard Play

      Now that the Saviors of Uldum Standard ladder experience has solidified, we think it’s a great time to throw a wrench or two (or twenty-three) in the gears. We’re going to be pulling some of the most popular and game-changing cards from across Hearthstone history, including
      Ragnaros the Firelord and N'Zoth, the Corruptor, out of Wild and dropping them back into Standard for a limited time. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get them into the action.
      We’ll be sharing more details (including the full list of 23 cards) in a blog update on October 4. Stay tuned!

      1,000 Win Class Portraits
      Looking ahead, we want to continue celebrating personal successes and milestones for all you dedicated Hearthstone players. Our next major update will introduce some really cool new portraits that you can earn by earning 1,000 wins with each class. Wins earned before this update goes live will retroactively count towards these totals. Take a look at a couple of examples below and start stacking up those wins!



      Quality of Life Improvements
       
      Alternate Search Terms
      We want it to be easier to quickly find the cards you’re looking for while deckbuilding, so we’re adding alternate search terms for some hard-to-type cards. We’ll be adding common misspellings and simplified versions of leetspeak card names (found on some Mech minions). For example, searching “snip” or “snap” will now show you SN1P-SN4P. While this feature will only be enabled for a few commonly misspelled cards at first, we’ll be able to add even more alternate search terms as needed.
      This feature will also support languages other than English. For example, SN1P-SN4P in Latin American Spanish is “CL1C-CL4C”, so searching “clic” would return the expected results. Quest Changes
      While not included in our next major update, here’s a preview of some of the changes we’re making to quests a little further down the line.
      We’re cutting some of the less popular daily quests and tuning down some of their requirements to make them quicker and easier to complete. We’ll also be adding some new quests to the pool to mix things up! We split most daily quests into two buckets: Easy (50g) and Slightly More Difficult (60g). Rerolling a Slightly More Difficult (60g) quest (like Play 10 Beasts) always gives you an Easy (50g) quest, so players can be guaranteed to get an Easy quest every day if they want. We love  Murlocs and Pirates as much as anyone, but it should be your choice if you decide to complete their quests.
      We’re excited to be bringing these new features, events, and other changes to Hearthstone soon. Please let us know what you think on social media or the official Hearthstone forums. Until then, we’ll see you in the Tavern!
