I've switched away from Paladin to the strongest Face Hunter deck, and I hardly ever lose at what is higher upper dumpster legend (10,000 but 14k or 15k is bottom) but I'm there because I wanted to do some experiments and that means some losing/misfires occur.
When I got sick of losing, I saw a pattern -- Druid, Mage, Rogue, Demon Hunter.
What schools those classes? Well, it's Face Hunter.
I must be on a 23-2 streak -- and one of the losses was to a Token Druid that without coin had a full board due to Gibbering and gaining mana and playing 4 spells on Turn 1 no coin.
Although this is definitely NOT the worst meta ever (hello Ashes of Outland and unnerfed Raza Priest/Patches and maybe Descent of Dragons), this one is fairly bad --- and I think if they did different nerfs it might even be worse because a number of classes are just crazy broken.
Rogue vomits minions. But Face Hunter kills them before it matters. No minion mage? Plays Ice Barrier on Turn 5 --- like Face Hunter even needs to hit face at that point. Just hero power and piercing shot. Druid ramping in Guardian Animals? Good luck with that when you have 8 health. Lifesteal Demon Hunter Turn 7 OTK? Face Hunter says Turn 7? What's that? Deathrattle Demon Hunter has a great play around Turn 7. Again, what's Turn 7? Rush Warrior is supposed to beat Face Hunter. And maybe it does. But I'm actually undefeated against them,.
Libram Paladin says "I have a higher winrate than you". Face Hunter says, "By a couple percent sure, but my games take 4 minutes".
To be honest, I've never won so many games so easily.
What's funny is that although I don't enjoy the Face Hunter archetype, I view all the decks except Paladin and Warrior (and possibly Token Druid) as dishonest because they are "from hand" and do not play for board.
So that in itself makes it enjoyable, but I can't wait for tomorrow where I can ladder up with it.
To be honest token druid with an half decent start can easily wipe face hunter from this universe you probably played vs people trying new decks i also really hate hunter because the class is all about putting pressure using every single resource in hand making it completely useless if the opponent finds a way to counter your moves...
Hunter is really good, expecially when mages use the "mask of chtun" desperately to try kill some minion before dying the turn after. I play only for this to happen every time, it feels too good to see mages hopeless
No doubt that face HunTARD is king. Its braindead, simple, can be played by a proboscis monkey & wins games for you. Its perfect for this mouth-breather meta. Bear in mind though: Winning with face hunter doesnt mean you 're good at the game. Not at all. The deck wins for you. Fact.
