This deck idea came to me when I looked at Countess Ashmore and thought about how to maximize her value. Which Lifesteal, Rush and Deathrattle card would be the best to pull out from your deck. The idea for this deck was sparked!

 This is how it works: if you play Countess Ashmore on 7, it will always pull 2x Vicious Scalehide and Kathrena Winterwisp from your deck which you can then play on curve on turn 8 (Kathrena). If you haven't drew King Krush or Charged Devilsaur, you will recruit those. The other way you can go is to Dire Frenzy a Vicious Scalehide before turn 7 and turn them into 4/6 Lifesteal Rush which you can draw with either Countess Ashmore or Kathrena Winterwisp for incredible healing!

The healing provided by the Dire Frenzy + Vicious Scalehide combo is so insane that it will keep you near max health the entire game! The survivability of this decks makes you able to use Deathstalker Rexxar to its fullest potential! The targeted Draw and Recruit from Countess Ashmore and Kathrena Winterwisp makes the deck super consistent!

You MUST hit the Dire Frenzy + Vicious Scalehide combo at some point. Don't play both Vicious Scalehide with no buff!

 The early game consist of the secret package wich is quite efficient. I do recommend keeping Countess Ashmore in your mulligan though as it will make your late game unfold smoothly.

 Sure this deck is a bit expensive but definatly give it a try. It's be by far my favorite deck since year of the Raven has launched!


Mulligan Guide!

Always keep one Stitched Tracker. Your #1 tracking target is Countess Ashmore, #2 is Kathrena Winterwisp or another Stitched Tracker if you don't have countess yet.

If you have Lesser Emerald Spellstone mulligan for secrets.

Against Aggro: Candleshot, Explosive Trap, Unleash the Hounds.

Against Control: Countess Ashmore, Deathstalker Rexxar.


Updated to improve Odd Pally match up.

 

 

Update #2 improving consistency with Stitched Tracker

-1 Houndmaster Shaw

-1 Flare

+2 Stitched Tracker

Houndmaster Shaw felt difficult to play on curve and the payoff of getting rush on spellstone is not even that great so I cut him. Stitched Tracker is a solid addition to the deck where you can make sure you hit Countess Ashmore every game or extend your late game value with more dinosaurs.

 

 

Update #3

-1 Swamp King Dred

-1 Animal Companion

+2 Charged Devilsaur

The deck needed a 3rd dinosaur to recruit so I first added one Charged Devilsaur but then I came to realize that Swamp King Dred is almost always played around by my opponent and I'd rather recruit a 2nd Charged Devilsaur. Also keeping only 6 different minions in the deck helps Stitched Tracker consistency.
