Lorinda Spell Hunter Deck

Table of Contents

This deck hedges against not drawing Rhok'delar by also including Deathstalker Rexxar. In conjunction with Tracking, the deck can dig to find those two key Legendary cards, as well as some of the other singleton cards in the deck. Lesser Emerald Spellstone can play a big part in this deck, and is fuelled by many Secret cards so as to get the maximum value from it as early as possible.

3. Strategy

3.1. Aim of the Deck

At its heart, Spell Hunter is a Control deck. It aims to survive long enough to safely play one of its two bombs, either Deathstalker Rexxar or Rhok'delar. After playing one of those two cards, the value generated should be enough to wear down most opponents.

3.2. Mulligan and Early-Game

The early-game is all about survival, which means that you will be looking to keep cards that keep you alive. The Secrets are key to this, and to keep the correct Secret it is important that you know the likely archetype that your opponent is playing. As well as keeping the correct Secrets, you can hold on to Eaglehorn Bow, Animal Companion, and Flanking Strike, as all three of these cards help to stem early damage. If you are keeping a Secret in your opening hand, it can often be correct to keep Lesser Emerald Spellstone alongside it, particularly if you have The Coin.

3.3. Mid-Game

The Secrets in the deck rapidly become less strong, and so it is important to get good use out of them as early as possible. As you transition into the mid-game, you should be looking for opportunities to lower your hand size in anticipation of playing Rhok'delar. Many of your spells will help to occupy the board, which in turn will buy more time.

4. Single Card Strategies

4.1. Lesser Emerald Spellstone

Lesser Emerald Spellstone is an extremely powerful card which will often produce 4 3/3s in this deck. You will generally be using these minions to remove the opposing board, but as there is quite a lot of direct damage available in the deck, you should always be aware that you might be able to race your opponent.

4.2. Eaglehorn Bow

Your Eaglehorn Bow will often gain multiple charges over the course of a game, due to the large number of Secrets in the deck. It is important not to waste the first charge, as you will want to keep the bow around to gain a charge from your Secrets, and if you only have one Durability left, you will not want to attack until a Secret has been triggered.

4.3. Tracking

It is best to wait as long as possible before playing Tracking so as to have the maximum information available before choosing your card. In this deck, Tracking is valuable as a way to get through your cards quickly in your search for Rhok'delar.
