Dragon Hunter Deck Strategy
In the early game you should look to get the fastest possible start with early-game minions like Dwarven Sharpshooter, Blazing Battlemage, and Phase Stalker. Once you have have minions in the board, you should make use of your Hero Power combined with Dwarven Sharpshooter and Corrosive Breath to ensure you can stay in control.
As you transition into the mid game, you should make use of Dragon synergies cards like Scalerider, Stormhammer and Rotnest Drake to ensure you can maintain control of the board, while the rest of your minions can do face damage to your opponent.
After dealing moderate damage to your opponent with your early minions, you should use start to focus direct damage sources like Stormhammer and Scalerider towards your opponent's face, in combination with your Hero Power, to deal the remaining points of damage to your opponent and close out the game.
Against Aggro, you should look to get the maximum tempo in the early game to ensure you do not get overrun on the board. This will often include skipping your Hero Power with Phase Stalker to ensure you can develop an additional minion to fight for control of the board. Once in control of the board, you should be able to continue to control the board and chip away at your opponents health.
Against Control, you should look to get slightly more value out of your cards by picking slower midrange Dragons from Primordial Explorer whilst also looking to get the maximum damage out of your Stormhammer. Additionally, Rotnest Drake will often play an essential role in getting your past large taunt minions played by your opponent.
