So I recently decided to take up Midrange Hunter as my first complete deck, due to the high dust cost of Combo Druid. Unfortunately, I had dusted 2 Highmanes a while ago, sooo I had to spent dust on them again (pain in me bum). Once I go this deck up and running, I had to start from the bottom like Drake (No... not Azure Drake nerds; the rapper).
This meant I had to start grinding from rank 20, despite my bonus stars from my incomplete Combo Druid deck getting me to Rank 16 last season. (I tried SMOrc and it didn't go so well...I was desperate. :( )
In Rank 20 thus-far, I have battled only 3 opponents and went 2-1. The first game I simply did not get my Mulligan's, and eventually board control did no good as I was unable to identify the mage as a burn mage (not the deck's fault).
The next two games I was mentally ready however, and won against a Control Priest (stated as favorable in the guide) AND a Face Hunter (stated as 40/60 matchup in guide). The reason that's bold is because once I got the groove of the deck, it was obvious that to win you simply need to put some damage on the aggressor (hero power when possible), and control the board with traps. I played smart, and eventually had more cards in hand than the Face Hunter about turn 6 (I had 6, he had 3). Freezing Trap and Bear Trap further ensured victory on his last attempted assault (yes...that is a felony kids).
I know it's Rank 20 and it is pitiful, but this is just the beginning. I will edit this post with my Rank and winrate whenever possible as the season progresses. Happy net-decking boys! :D
Rank 18 with 1 star. Winning streak yet to be broken.
Update: Rank 15, 4 stars
