Token Midrange Hunter Deck

Last updated on Jun 10, 2017 at 14:08 by L0rinda 28 comments

Many of the best cards in Midrange Hunter are minions that have Deathrattle effects which create more minions. These effects are often used to create powerful situations to use Houndmaster. This build of the deck takes that philosophy a step further and adds Dire Wolf Alpha and Knife Juggler to get even more out of those Deathrattles.

3. Strategy Changes

With the addition of Knife Juggler and Dire Wolf Alpha, the early game can often be played differently from the more traditional Beast Hunter. Although the deck is still about controlling the board with minions, there will be more forward planning in this variant than in the balanced variant. This is because there are more interactions to consider. The considerations for the changed cards are listed below.

3.1. Dire Wolf Alpha

Dire Wolf Alpha is a great card in a token deck as the minions next to the Wolf can be traded away, which means the next minion along gets buffed. With this in mind you should be very aware of positioning. The Wolf should aim to be in the middle of the minions for the large part, but be aware that hounds from Unleash the Hounds and Animal Companion spawn on the right hand side of the board. This means that the Dire Wolf will often be positioned more towards the right of the other minions to prepare for the future.

3.2. Knife Juggler

Knife Juggler is a powerful card to play on turns where Rat Pack or Infested Wolf are going to die. Often, the knives thrown will help to clear your opponent's board. Bear in mind that it is usually best for the knives to hit enemy minions, and not the face, which means you will often want to summon minions before attacking. This allows you to finish off anything that was missed with your minions and keep control of the board.

The Juggler is also very strong to play on the same turn as Unleash the Hounds, especially against aggressive decks that have managed to make a wide board of small minions. Some careful planning can often lead to this combination completely changing the course of a game.
