Since 2014 I've been trying to make an effective control hunter, and I made some pretty decent control-oriented decks that I got golden hunter with. I always really liked hunter, and my playstyle is pretty controlish. I went nuts when Gahz'rilla came out, and knew he had potential. I can't even count how many times I won because the enemy left him alive on the board.

 Even without him this deck works. Here are some choices I made:

I don't think there is any space for it, and you don't have that many beasts. I find Arcane Shot better because it can combo with Wild Pyromancer and destroy aggro and zoo decks.

Wild Pyromancer + Hunter's Mark combo is devastating because it can kill big minions such as Dr. Boom and deal damage to all the others, making this useful in lots of situations and in all kinds of matches. Synergizes as well with Acolyte of Pain, and of course, Gahz'rilla.

Better Loot Hoarder, which has spell power for Arcane Shot and Quick Shot.

I used Explosive Trap, but I found out that Kezan Mystic makes you instantly win against Freeze Mage and annihilate our hated brothers, Face Hunters. Explosive Trap proved itself ineffective in many situations due to the enemy be playing around it.


Mulligan hard for 1,2 drops in aggro matchups, and if you already have it, keep 3 drops. Against hunters and mages always keep Kezan Mystic.

In other matches, mulligan for 1,2,3 drops. If you already have a 2 or 3 drop, you can keep 4 drops.


I hope you guys like it, and any question about replacement of cards, comment.

EDIT: This deck is better against control, but you can do anti-aggro approaches:

x2 Zombie Chow instead of x2 Animal Companion

x2 Sen'jin Shieldmasta instead of x2 Piloted Shredder
