I have been playing Hearthstone since beta. The most brutally insufferable deck of all time has to be machine gun priest. Fast forward to today. Someone thought it would be a good idea to make machine gun hunter which is much faster… why on earth?!
Because it’s not even the best deck in the game, not even top 5 in standard?
Quest hunter is “faster” to get online, but doesn’t have near the sustain priest had. Priests also triggered from ANY card played, not just spells.
This is a load of turds.
I am not a fan of Quest Hunter, but I got bored of other decks and decided to terrorize Standard with Defend the Dwarven District in the last day.
In numerous games (20?) I am undefeated with 1 loss to a Pirate Warrior.
There was a Druid who I got to 9 health and he played Reno Jackson and said "Well Played". My next turn, I killed both his 5/5 and Reno Jackson and reduced his health from 30 to 11 and killed him the next turn.
Quest Hunter is degenerate with Dragon's Bane shot in particular, but Hunter also has more draw than ever with Furious Howl and a number of discover cards.
A Quest Hunter's deck is almost all spells. In wild, if I play Questline Hunter the deck I use has no minions except Bloodmage Thalnos.
Why I am playing Questline Hunter when I think the deck is degenerate? Because the fact that they haven't nerfed it is comedy.
Hearthstone cards today are all minion hate --- removal, silence, rush, destroy. And they keep giving Mage and Druid 0 mana stuff or massive mana cheat, but I find it funny to play Questline Hunter because those decks need enemy minions to target. Does something have rush if the opponent never plays a minion? Freeze my minions? What minions?
