Deathrattle Demon Hunter Deck Mulligan Guide

Deathrattle Demon Hunter utilises both Deathrattle minions and Watch Post cards throughout the game. In your mulligan you should look for key cards to enable both of these strategies.

  • General Mulligan (keep regardless of what your opponent is playing)Tuskpiercer, Razorboar, Razorfen Beastmaster.
  • Mulligan against Aggro (also keep if you think you are playing against an aggressive deck)Felrattler.
  • Mulligan against Control (also keep if you think you are playing against a slow deck)Death Speaker Blackthorn.

Deathrattle Demon Hunter Deck Strategy

In the early game, your aim should be to build up a foundation for keeping Deathrattle minions on the board throughout the game. On Turn 1 this largely involves playing and attacking with Tuskpiercer, this can subsequently be followed up by cheap Deathrattle minions like Devouring Ectoplasm and Razorboar.

Throughout this time, the aim is to find key Deathrattle minions in your hand that chain together. Razorboar is the most important minion to look for when assembling these chains as its low Cost means you do not want it to be pulled by another Deathrattle minion, similarly if you have 2 Razorboars it is ideally to try and get them on the board at the same time. In addition to Razorboars, you are also looking to have Razorfen Beastmasters in your hand as it is the ideal target for Razorboar to pull from your hand due to its ability to pull out your higher-Cost Deathrattles. Lastly, you are looking for a 3rd Deathrattle minion to be pulled ideally a 4-Cost Deathrattle like Renowned Performer or a Fel Summoner discounted by Raging Felscreamer. These combos are the backbone of the deck due to the immense difficulty required to remove them from the board.

The deck's Deathrattle plays are more than enough to allow you to comfortably enter the late game, at which point these synergies can be compounded further through the use of the powerful cards like Death Speaker Blackthorn and N'Zoth, God of the Deep. Any remaining follow-up damage can be deal using the combination of Illidari Inquisitor and attacking your opponent directly with your Hero to deal the finishing blow.

Against Aggro, you should look to pull Renowned Performer and Felrattler from you hand to slow down your opponent to help you safely reach the mid game, where the deck hits its stride.

Against Control, you should expect to play a slightly longer game due additional removal being available for your board. To account for this, you should expect to use both copies of Illidari Inquisitor to deal the additional points of burst damage to close out the game.
