Lifesteal OTK Demon Hunter Deck Mulligan Guide
Lifesteal Demon Hunter is an OTK deck that relies on using very specific card combinations in order to burst down opponents. To facilitate this, looking for a good amount of card draw in your mulligan is essential.
- General Mulligan (keep regardless of what your opponent is playing) — , .
- Mulligan against Aggro (also keep if you think you are playing against an aggressive deck) — , .
- Mulligan against Control (also keep if you think you are playing against a slow deck) — .
Lifesteal OTK Demon Hunter Deck Strategy
Throughout most of the game your aim should be to simply use your Mana efficiently to draw as many cards as possible. Where possible, you should try to prioritise card draw effects that have their Outcast effects active, such as, especially if they are on the right-side of your hand.
Should you come under pressure from your opponent, you can make use of the small number of removal tools in the deck, likeand . Due to the deck having large amounts of Lifesteal to heal you, it is best to use your removal conservatively until you have no other option, unless you happen to have many sources of removal in your hand. If you require stronger removal, extra copies of can be used if absolutely necessary.
When drawing through your deck, the key cards you are looking for areand multiple copies of . Additional copies of Mo'arg Artificer can be generated with if needed. Where possible you should try to avoid copying your Artificers until you have discounted one using or have already drawn both copies as any Mana discounts will also be copies, however it is not necessary to Outcast Felospohy.
Performing your final OTK against your opponent can be done in a multitude of ways, but each time it will have 3 core components:
- Spell Empowerment
- Lifesteal Spells
The first part of any combo is simply to play. Afterwards, you should look to play a mix of s and Spell Damage minions onto the board. For calculation purposes, Spell Damage is always applied before the doubling effect of Artificiers are calculated. Lastly, you require a Lifesteal spell to utilise the previous 2 components. This should ideally be due to Spell Damage having a greater effect on it but can also work, or even a mix of both. This damage can be freely used on enemy or friendly minions to burst down your opponent and the Lifesteal damage will still be dealt to your opponent even if your Artificiers or Il'gynoth die from it.
Against Aggro, you should put a lot more emphasis on simply surviving. The large amount of Lifesteal in the deck can simply be used to overcome your opponent's aggression until they run out of cards. When your opponent is low on cards, you can simply finish them off using any weapons and spells you have available.
Against Control decks, especially those that can gain Armor, you should try to maximise the damage your combo can do. This largely involves using as manys as possible and not wasting any throughout the game as their damage can grow exponentially. For example, using in combination with 3 Artificiers will boost the damage of a to 16 per target, allowing you to do 48 damage with a single spell.
