Swapping Deathstalker Rexxar for Kathrena Winterwisp.
I say replace replace 1 call pet and 1 buzzard with 2x Dire Frenzy
Had a good fun with this deck from rank 19 till 15/14 and the fun stopped there.
This deck has serious flaws against revive priest and burst mages.
Starving Buzzard is completely useless.
Call Pet is very bad to depend on early game as you will often draw non-beast cards.
Has only 1 crowd control (board clearance) that is Deathstalker Rexxar which means you cant clear boards till you have 6 mana .. which is pretty late vs some paladin decks.
Awesome list, had a total blast playing some casual games at rank 25 in wild! Check them out;(Games start at 2:27)
Would it be ridiculous to play this deck without Rexxar?
Yeah, probably. A lot of the time he is the win condition.
Isn't Jeweled Macaw just staight-up better than Webspinner at this point? Also, Desert Camel doesn't make much sense with only 2 1-drops. Should probably run Alleycat instead, since you're playing Buzzard as well
Because of Desert Camel pulling the card out of your deck. The deathrattle from Webspinner can still trigger in that case, whereas Jeweled Macaw's battlecry would not.
Also, Webspinner is straight up better almost all the time. If you play Jeweled Macaw on 1, it's just a 1/1 beast. If you play Webspinner, it's a 1/1 beast with deathrattle. Certain opponents are less likely to kill a 1/1 deathrattle than simply a 1/1, because they want to delay the deathrattle. Might sound crazy but in a midrange style deck this difference is really big. There's also deathrattle synergy in the deck regardless so it's a good play.
Still Desert Camel with only 2 one drops is pretty absurd.
I agree (though I'm a very unskilled deckbuilder, so my opinion on this point isn't worth much...)
Just pointing out why one card made more sense than the other.
What's the reason behind no Kill Commands? Also, how consistent do you get value from the Desert Camels with only two 1 drops?
There are no Kill Commands because of Call Pet .It's to maximize its efficiency.
Well done Dane! You finally bring the old beast hunter back! Stronger than ever before!
Two games so far, and 2 wins - nice deck, easy win :) thx!
PS Dane is one of my favourite YouTubers or Streamers ;) Didnt miss any video !
I was playing your reno hunter deck and just lost to this deck. I did have some crap draws but it seems this deck has better draws overall in the early to mid game. Also, the tempo is insane. Very nice deck.
6 games = only wins. Rank 8
I started playing this after I saw it on stream, it looked really fun. 10 games later I’m still undefeated. (I’m around rank 15 though)
Thanks for the fun/surprisingly good list. :-)
hi would it not be worh to squeeze N`zoth i n there somewhere? personaly im gonna drop +1 candle for it :D
