Aggro Demon Hunter Mulligan Guide

Aggro Demon Hunter is hyper-aggro deck that explodes onto the board. capable of snowballing out of control starting from turn 1. You should use your mulligan to find the fastest possible cards for the strongest opening.

Due to the nature of the Outcast Mechanic, you should prioritise keeping Outcast cards like Crimson Sigil Runner if they are the left-most card in your mulligan.

Aggro Demon Hunter Strategy

In the early game, you should try to populate the board as quickly as possible using Battlefiend, Crimson Sigil Runner, Sightless Watcher, and Umberwing. If you remove any opposing minions you should use the attack power of your Hero, provided by Shadowhoof Slayer and Chaos Strike to do so. Twin Slice should ideally be used in combination with Satyr Overseer to ensure you are able to attack every single turn to generate minions.

You should direct most of your damage directly toward your opponent, stopping only to remove minions if you can protect a high-value minions like Satyr Overseer. This will allow you to minimise the number of turns the games last for quick wins.

Due to the nature of the Outcast mechanic, you should heavily consider playing top-decked Outcast cards the turn you draw them if you can get any value from them that turm, especiallly Skull of Gul'dan. This will often slow down your current turn, but yield a large amount of tempo and value over the next few turns and cannot be underestimated.

To close out the game, you should look to use either Kayn Sunfury to bypass enenmy Taunt minions or you can simply use Metamorphosis to burn down your opponent to finish them off in the mid game.

Against Aggro, you should look to make additional value trades with your minions if your opponent puts additional pressure on the board, before you begin pressuring your opponent. Similarly, if you against a deck that focuses on burn damage, such as Face Hunter you should look to make slighly more trades with your minions instead of your Hero to ensure you maintain enough Health to not die to direct damage.

Against Control, you should expect to play a slighlty longer game due to additional removal tools and healing present in their deck. To account for this you should try to make sure you able access the Outcast effects of Skull of Gul'dan and Crimson Sigil Runner by playing them as soon as you draw them, or forcing them to the far-left of your hand before playing them. These additional draw tools should provide you with the additional resources neccessary to take down even the most resilient of Control decks.
