With enough interest, guide incoming.
Thoughts so far?
Haven't decided to craft Baku myself, so haven't had a chance to try this out, but why 1 Clockwork Automaton and two Blackwald Pixies? It's the same mana cost if you are trying for the 6 face damage, but the automaton can continue to pay out (and has +1 to attack. yippee). I guess pixie is a good 3 drop and the automaton is a terrible 5 drop, but I would think you would be holding onto the pixie and not ever really playing him without using the effect.
You need 2x tracker and tracking for sure, I've won on charge pulls from tracker too often. Wolfrider is often overlooked in these decks, I run it in my list and as a turn 5 deal 6 face play it works well, or used to kill a tar creeper. I've beat 5/6 cubelocks and 4/6 shamans. Mage is the only real concern for the deck, and for some reason I match into stupid mage lists way too often.
what about Faceless Manipulator ?
You know, Odd Hunter had jumped out to me as an idea, but seeing what cards might be in some action... I love hunter and I am excited about the developments to the control archetype, but I am so so excited about hitting for 6 damage a turn with Blackwald Pixie and the automatons. Feeling like this might be my go to ladder deck, especially while the meta settles
If you have Captain Greenskin, might be a fun addition.
Agreed! One Unleash the Hounds or one Bittertide Hydra might be the flex spot, depending on which way the meta swings.
needs wayyy more 1 drops i think, should definitely have some acherus veterans or glacial shards instead of the automatons
I like the burst potential Clockwork Automaton adds to the deck and would really like to try them out. Possibly cut Wolfrider in favor of the 1 drops suggested? 16 3 drops seems a bit much.
Not saying it fits this deck per se, but if you're really giddy about the potential burst, see King Krush and Emeriss combo (works well with Leeroy Jenkins as well).
Yeah, I'm definitely going to also try to make a new Midrange Hunter with the charge combos. Sucks we're losing the Handbuff mechanics of Gadgetzan just as this comes out.
looks interesting! I will happily test it after the release. The most attractive thing for me are all the shenanigans with hero power.
seems good to me, maybe cut tracking for stitched tracker since I cannot see a scenario where you are happy to play tracking.
Cut 2x Tracking for 2x Stitched Tracker. Thanks for the input.
I think stitched tracker is too slow. we want to hit the face, a 2/2 for 3 doesn't hit the face. stitched tracker gives you more value, but who cares about value when u are trying to kill people before turn 7.
Replaced Stitched Tracker with Marsh Drake. More aggressive and possible to kill the 2/1 with Candleshot or a weak minion.
