The Lich King Hunter Deck

Last updated on Aug 25, 2017 at 18:14 by L0rinda 111 comments

The Turn 1 spell that The Lich King uses against Rexxar is The Hunted. This can actually kill you on Turn 1 as it deals 2 damage for every minion in your deck. Note that this does not count the minions in your hand. Due to this restriction, decks using Lock and Load and Barnes are a clear choice for this part of the adventure..

Aim of the Deck

The aim of the deck is to get a powerful Deathrattle effect into play early by using Barnes, and then trigger that effect multiple times.

This version of the deck uses Sneed's Old Shredder and Sylvanas Windrunner, although some players choose to use Y'Shaarj, Rage Unbound. If you wish to use the Rage Unbound version, exchange it for Sylvanas and restart the game if you get it in your opening hand, or if you do not have Barnes by Turn 4. That way is probably more efficient in terms of time to complete the adventure, but we do not consider it very fulfilling.



In the mulligan, you are looking for Barnes and nothing else. If you do not have Barnes, throw away everything apart from Tracking. If you do have Barnes, you should throw away Sylvanas Windrunner and Sneed's Old Shredder and keep every other card. You do not want to draw either of those cards until Barnes has been played.

Early Game

If you have Barnes in hand, the game revolves around that fact until you play it. Try not to play Tracking, as this gets you closer to drawing Sylvanas Windrunner and Sneed's Old Shredder. Other than that, you would prefer to have a clear board, and Play Dead in hand. For this reason, you might delay playing Barnes until Turn 5 so that you can get an activation from Play Dead.

You will spend the rest of the early-game trying to occupy the board, and prevent The Lich King from getting a big board. Freezing Trap should be preserved if possible as it is very good from Turn 7 onwards.

Turn Eight

This is a great turn to get multiple Sylvanas Deathrattles. The Lich King also does not like wide boards, if you can get several minions on the board, The Lich King will make trades rather than hitting you in the face.

Late Game

The hardest part of the game is Turn Eight. After that, try to keep control of the board, and get large amounts of damage through when available. Deathstalker Rexxar is very important during this phase. Your first Build-A-Beast choices will often be large Taunts or LifeSteal if available. After that, you will usually be looking for large amounts of damage. Taking your time over your choices is vital, as often you will have a way out of a tough spot that is not immediately obvious.
