Quest Hunter Archetype Guide

Last updated on Apr 12, 2018 at 13:02 by L0rinda 36 comments

Quest Hunter became an archetype with the introduction of the Journey to Un'Goro expansion. Due to the relatively weak support cards for the deck and the inconsistency of the Quest after completion, it did not become a major archetype at that time.

With the rotation of cards associated with The Year of the Raven, Quest Hunter was given a new leash of life. It was given added consistency with Ravencaller which allowed the deck to complete the Quest more regularly.

Below, you will find link to our deck lists for Quest Hunter, starting with our featured deck, which we consider the most common variant.

This version of Quest Hunter aims to rapidly complete The Marsh Queen Quest, while still having enough resources to stay in the game. The deck contains many 1-drop minions, but also employs Prince Keleseth to allow those minions to be able to fight for the board. It is a theorycraft version of the deck, created by pro player J4CKIECHAN. As such, it will change rapidly over the first few days of the new expansion.


Aim of the Archetype of Quest Hunter

This archetype relies on completing the Quest of The Marsh Queen to create a large number of Carnassa's Brood Raptors with which it floods the board to exert relentless pressure on the opponent. It contains cards such as Tol'vir Warden and Ravencaller to accelerate this process.


Strengths and Weaknesses of Quest Hunter

The deck has issues with consistency, both before and after completing the Quest. If your opponent can set up large Taunt minions, they are often able to deal with the Carnassa's Brood minions relatively easily. Against decks that do not run Taunt, the deck can repeatedly set up menacing boards against Control decks, and run them out of resources.


Key Cards and Crafting



The Marsh Queen is the point of the deck, and as such cannot be replaced.

Deathstalker Rexxar can be replaced with an extra 1-drop to add extra speed to Quest completion. This will significantly reduce the power of the deck.
