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.

Aggro Demon Hunter Strategy

In the early game, you should try to populate the board as quickly as possible using Battlefiend, Blazing Battlemage, and Demon Companion. If you remove any opposing minions, you should use the attack power of your Hero, provided by Twin Slice and Umberwing, to do so.

You should direct most of your damage directly toward your opponent, stopping only to deal with high-value threats. When pushing aggressively, Bonechewer Brawler is a particularly useful Taunt that can be buffed further using Guardian Augmerchant to create a powerful and awkward wall to protect your other minions.

The low curve of the deck makes it very likely that you will run out of cards very quickly. If you have Voracious Reader in hand, then you can freely play your cards aggressively so that it can be used to quickly refill your hand. Later into the game you may also opt to play Acrobatics for additional card draw, however, you should try to save the card until you have at least 6 Mana to help maximise the chance you can immediately play both drawn cards to activate the cards bonus card draw.

To close out the game you should look to put together any remaining damage from hand, such as Dreadlord's Bite, Stiltstepper, and Twin Slice to finish off your opponent.

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 slightly 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 maximise the value of Voracious Reader and Acrobatics by playing them with an empty hand or while you have plenty of Mana respectively. These additional draw tools should provide you with the additional resources neccessary to take down even the most resilient of Control decks.
