Hi Guys, my name is sOdArIk and I’m from Germany.
I’m playing Hearthstone since open beta and hit multiple times legend with homebrew decks.
At the start of the new expansion I thought to myself: If there is a no minion Mage, there has to be a deck with no Spells. And born was the no spells Deathrattle Demonhunter :D
I played the deck since day one of the expansion. The deck survived deck of Lunacy for 2 mana and the horde of paladins which followed after the nerfs.
I played different versions of the deck and want to show the one (v2.4) that got me to legend this season.
Proof of Legend:
These stats include the last season too.
These stats are only from this season.
Because the deck has no spells it is a heavily board focused one. You win by conquering the board and overwhelming your opponents with your army of deathrattle minions.
The average game length is 7 to 8 minutes and 9 to 10 turns.
The best matchups for this deck are vs Demonhunter (all variations), Warlock, Paladin (all variations) and Mage (my stattable doesn't agreee on this O_o)
The hardest matchup by far is vs Priest (all variations)
So every matchup except for Priest feels winnable!!!
Benefits for heaving no spells?
One of the most important cards to conquer the board. Sometimes you have to play it only for one minion. Can be game winning in the right situations.
This is your boardcontrol tool number one. It allows your minions to hit face, trade afterwards and activate your deathrattles in the right moment.
Early game control and for draw
Razorboar (WTF why is that a beast?)
Bread and Butter for early game. Pulls out your Nerubian Egg, Death's Head Cultist and Razorfen Beastmaster. (OK, OK, sometimes it pulls Teron Gorefiend but a free 3/4 is better than nothing ;))
Death's Head Cultist
The only way to regenerate your life. Important vs early aggression from Hunter and Demon Hunter.
Simply for boardcontrol.
Boardcontrol and defensive tool.
Draw tool and one of the best cards in this deck! (OK, OK sometimes it is only a 4/4 for 4 Mana)
Burning Blade Acolyte
Very slow deathrattle. Board protection in control matchups. Defensive tool vs others.
Taelan Fordring (Core Set Legendary)
Defensive tool and draw for your lategame.
Cairne Bloodhoof (Core Set Legendary)
He’s the leader of the Tauren. Enough said.
High Inquisitor Whitemane (Core Set Legendary)
Very good card which can win games on its own.
Death Speaker Blackthorn
He’s the guy that allows us to play this Deck. Best Card in the deck by far!
Lategame control tool and serious threat for the opponent if he's in his rushform on board.
If you can sent a “filled” Teron Gorefiend into a minion with your Trueaim Crescent and have Animated Broomstick as a followup you can really turn the tables and win games that you never thought you would.
High Inquisitor Whitemane
Allows you to whipe the board with your minions, summon them back and put a solid body on the board. Turn 5 into Burning Blade Acolyte is very slow. The opponents often ignore this little 1/1. If you can followup with a High Inquisitor Whitemane you got an 5/8 Taunt and a 5/7 for 6 Mana.
It’s turn 5 and you have a Razorfen Beastmaster in play. The opponent doesn’t want to kill this minion yet on his own and leaves him alone. Now it’s turn 6, you trade the Razorfen Beastmaster into an enemy minion, it pulls Fishy Flyer or Renowned Performer from your hand. You trade that minion too and play High Inquisitor Whitemane. You cleared the board and have a large board on your own.
You trade Taelan Fordring and resummon him and so on…
At worst you play her as a 5/7 on 6 for tempo.
Cards you should always keep with or without the coin:
Death Speaker Blackthorn except vs Hunter (highest priority!)
Trueaim Crescent except for control matchups.
Vengeful Spirit if he’s on the left. Even vs Hunter you keep this guy on the left.
Teron Gorefiend alone except for control matchups.
Death's Head Cultist vs Mage and Hunter
Don’t always coin Death Speaker Blackthorn on 6. Only do so if you are in need to and have a strong followup.
Replays vs different classes:
If you want to see replays vs the other classes tell me and i will add them :)
And now pls try to enjoy the Deck ;)
