Kobolds and Catacombs Guide
I just read 'spell hunter' somewhere and decided to give it a go. Turns out I used the right cards, although I am sadly missing the legendaries.
In my opinion every taunt-heavy deck is a HUGE pain in the ***, even worse than most priest decks. Sure, priest can just stall the game and then club you to death with rezzes and stuff but something like taunt warrior (especially the nasty kind that goes for penalty win) or taunt druid is virtually unbeatable. Fortunately those are not particularly popular.
I must say I am quite surprised at how well this deck works against most other decks than the problamatic priest/taunt ones. There's seldom a round where I cannot dish out damage to enemy hero because you have a lot of removal.
How do you fight against heavy taunt or priest decks?
So I'm 76% winrate with this deck on ladder right now, but every other "metadeck" I try struggles to stay at 50%.I really don't get it.
Do not invest in the hunter, this shit, it's a shame on the nerves. It's a very weak deck of cards.
Anyone got Mulligan advice?
Pretty much the same as any other deck: try to get a hand that can survive the early game and generate value. If you can take a guess at the sort of deck you're playing against, keep specific cards that would be good against that deck. The main card you need to consider super heavily is the Deathknight because he'll win you games you should never win, but there might be games where a fast draw means he's actively bad to play.
I love to play this deck. I made two adjustments put in barnes and Yshaari rage unbound.
Its fun to play barnes in turn 3 and you get a minion with 10 attack. It gives you the win if your opponent cannot remove it in time.
Disadvantage of these two minions in my deck Rhok delar doesnot work if you don't get the two minions in time. this goes also for To-my-side.
Today a winstreak from 6 in wild until another hunter got me a loss, because he got Kel thousad which i couldn't remove.
Useless against priest
Early season with this deck.
It is faring quite well. I could overcome Aggroadins and Tempo Rogue by efficiently playing control, until the board was in my grip.
Almost defeated even Voidlock, just for few hp.
I find this deck usually wins at turn 8. Any longer decreases the chances, so i think CotW is too slow. It can be replaced by a second Explosive Trap for better Aggro management.
Also, Flare is situational, since Secret Mage can be countered without it. Insteal, a Venomous Strike or Misdirection can give you an extra kick to secure your side of the board.
Overall, i think this deck can be a surprising anti-meta, even tho sometimes poor draw just ruins the plan.
bummer that i krafted all the cards but don't have cat trick, the best secret and no card can really replace its value so can anybody tell me the top two or one thing i can use to replace
Quote from 69stoneHearth >
considering getting rid of tracking for something else, don't really want to be ditching 4-5 cards a game from this deck.
It's actually really nice for thinning your deck. You can dig for key strong cards and toss away the crap.
I'm missing Rhokdelar and Rexxar so I play bestial wrath instead and works flawlessly.
replace for rexar?
There's probably no good replacement for Rexxar... I think he's kind of the top end of the deck after you've finished getting board control. He helps produce your win cons that you'll need passed spellstones/companions
I rarely use rexxar. He helps Vs long control matchup with the zombeast hero power. Alos helps clearing the enemy board and survive a bit with the extra 5armor.
I would probably just put a 2nd hunters mark to replace Dk rexxar.
Hunters mark is good with "candleshot" and "on the hunt"
Fun deck but can’t get it to work at all. It’s too slow against aggro/zoo and too vulnerable to heavy control. It simply runs out of steam. I was even completely shutdown by Psychic Scream. Might be playing it wrong but it’s not often working well. A shame since the concept is fun.
I think the secrets can mess up aggro pretty bad in the beginning, but I'd say priest is this decks worst matchup. I've only played like 10 games with it so far so small sample size but all my losses have been to priest. That on top of the fact that yeah psychic scream will basically just dick over this deck pretty bad.
How can I replace Cat Trick?
Best card ever, nothing will help you
