This guide contains detailed strategy, mulligan, and deck-building information to help you improve your Beast Hunter play for The Forged in the Barrens expansion meta.

The Beast Hunter deck relies on the synergy between the many Beasts and other minions in the deck to create a range of dominant Beasts. Through the use of Trampling Rhino and Piercing Shot, the deck can chew through minions while also burning down the enemy Hero, before finishing off opponents with King Krush.

Beast Hunter Deck Mulligan Guide

Beast Hunter utilises a Watch Post package to be able to survive the early game and you should use your mulligan to help consistently find them.

  • General Mulligan (keep regardless of what your opponent is playing)Far Watch Post, Mor'shan Watch Post, and Selective Breeder.
  • Mulligan against Aggro (also keep if you think you are playing against an aggressive deck)Trueaim Crescent.
  • Mulligan against Control (also keep if you think you are playing against a slow deck)Warsong Wrangler.

Beast Hunter Deck Strategy

Your early game should be spent developing Far Watch Posts and Mor'shan Watch Posts to slow opponents down. While doing this, you should use any remaining Mana to play Warsong Wrangler and Selective Breeder to draw, buff, and duplicate the Trampling Rhinos and King Krush in your deck.

As you enter into the mid game, you can use a mix of Piercing Shot and Trampling Rhino to control the board, chipping away at your opponent's Health in the process. This will help soften your opponent to be either later finished off by King Krush directly, or multiple copies of it, and any remaining Trampling Rhinos, being pulled from your hand with Beastmaster Leoroxx.

Against Aggro, you should focus on very defensive play, taking trades whereever possible. The excess damage from Trampling Rhino and Piercing Shots are more than adequate to drop your opponent's Health over time, eventually leaving you in a position where you can safely close out the game.

Against Control, you should focus on assembling an OTK to finish off your opponent. This can be done by using Selective Breeder to exclusively copy your King Krush, ideally duplicating it twice before drawing the real version with Warsong Wrangler. These can eventually all be played in a single turn using Beastmaster Leoroxx, ensuring you play any other Beasts from your hand on prior turns.

Beast Hunter Deck Card Swaps

  • Against Control — Add 1x Dire Frenzy for 1x Wound Prey.
  • Against Aggro — Add 1x Death's Head Cultist for 1x Tame Beast (Rank 1).
