It seems we have at least a plurality - if not a full-fledged consensus - that face hunter is the most annoying deck in the current meta. Certainly that seemed to be 90% of what I saw played between levels 10 - 5 this month. So - what’s the best counter to that 5- turn killer? Anyone?
I’ll happily lose to every other deck for a week or two just to put that particular deck in it’s place.
Galawarrior with the enrage mechanics and armorsmiths do the trick for me. Since they are usually stupid af and just go face I had it several times that they ignored my armorsmith, I got to play out multiple minions and then damage them or trade them into their stupid snakes, on occasion copying a damaged armorsmith to gain upwards of 20 armor. Sometimes they concede right away, sometimes they rage quit a couple of turns later when their hands is empty, my armor intact and my board about to kill them. Either way it makes me happy.

I play most rogue and suffer with endless hunters, 1/2 or 1/3 of the matchs are vs them.
But the match system hates me for some reason, soon I switch my rogue deck for a warrior deck I don't encounter one single hunter anymore, if I play 30 games in a row will be vs priests, rogues or druids.
Priest with two 5 drops that heal for 5, two Ooze, one Jones for weapon removal. two Overconfident Orcs, two Penance etc.....Breath of dreams, and more taunts and healing. Impossible to lose to Face huntrer unless draw shitty. Oh and a mass silence spell is helpfull too.
Just some ideas to counter aggro decks. You can do the same with Paladin. make a dragon focused list with all the healing cards etc....wild Pyro with Lifesteal etc....
