There is an error in paragraph 6; all the cards mentionned are not in the deck !

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.

They're coming, patience my friend! It was easy to get a few GvG decks out that were updates to exisiting archetypes I already had, fresh and exciting stuff will be coming in time :)

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.

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 ?

      The single-player adventure, introduced along with the Rastakhan's Rumble expansion, is now available in all regions.
      The Rumble Run is very similar to the Dungeon Run and the Monster Hunt, in the sense that you will face eight opponents and you will build your deck as you progress using card bundles, passives and powerful minions exclusive to this game mode.
      Your hero will always be Rikkar, a young Troll champion eager to prove himself. In the beginning of your run, you will be offered three different Shrines (more on them in the next paragraph) from three different classes. This initial decision basically equals to you picking a Class for this run. The other eight classes will be your opponents.

      Shrines exist as minions on the board and they have powerful effects. Each class has three different Shrines and each starting Shrine comes with a complementary deck of 10 minions that synergise with it. When a Shrine dies, it goes dormant for 3 turns and its effect isn't active until it comes back to life.
      Subsequently, you will build your deck using card bundles, neutral passive abilities and class-specific minions exclusive to the Rumble Run.
      If you finish the Rumble Run once with any class, you will earn this card back:

      Good luck on this new adventure and we'll soon have a detailed guide on it!
