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.
- General Mulligan (keep regardless of what your opponent is playing) — Battlefiend, Intrepid Initiate, Demon Companion, Blazing Battlemage.
- Mulligan against Aggro (also keep if you think you are playing against an aggressive deck) — Twin Slice.
- Mulligan against Control (also keep if you think you are playing against a slow deck) — Voracious Reader.
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. Alternatively, if you are possession of Skull of Gul'dan instead, you can opt to make use of your Hero Power more frequently to allow your cards to last until you can refill your hand.
To close out the game, you should look to use either Kayn Sunfury to bypass enemy Taunt minions or you can simply use Marrowslicer and Glaivebound Adept's Battlecry 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 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 Skull of Gul'dan by playing them with an empty hand or while Outcast respectively. These additional draw tools should provide you with the additional resources neccessary to take down even the most resilient of Control decks.
