    Sightless Ranger is a cool idea, I added Fungal at some point (need to update the original post).

    Was not a huge fan of Argus or Dire Wolf really. Though that may be that I just don't know how to play the deck well enough.

    i once get a mistake by discarding the buffed card. silly me...

    so Prince Keleseth and other buff cards is a must i suppose?

     I think this card only works with Spirit of the Bat in the deck. A version with Keleseth might work okay, alongside the other generic handbuff card (Spiteful Warlock?) because at 3/3 Hir'eek is pretty good.

    The point is they're nerfing the value and power of those legendaries, but not providing meaningful compensation for those nerfs.

    I'm not sure a full refund is in order and I don't know if it's a conspiracy, but something to compensate for that would be nice.

    I tried something similar. It's not groundbreaking or anything, but it's a nice new version of Zoolock, without the massive highroll on Keleseth or the perfect Heal-opening.

    I put in Knife Juggler and Dire Wolf Alpha. The Wolf helps as another activator for the eggs, lets the Spirit attack and just goes nicely with all the small minions when you need to trade up. Juggler is just generally strong when you can summon multiple minions in one turn, like with the eggs, Doubling Imp and Saronite Chain Gang.

    I'm not so sure about Vicious Fledgling and Sanguine Reveler. Fledgling doesn't look too appealing to me right now (maybe I'm wrong) and I tried out Reveler myself and wasn't impressed by his performance.

     I like Reveler as an activator for Spirit of the Bat and Scarab Egg. Vicious Scalehide hasn't been working out so well so I think I'm gonna swap it for Doomguard who can just end the game.

    All right, so Doomguard didn't work because he would just discard all my handbuffed stuff.

    One issue I'm having with this deck is unless I get a big buffed board early with Grim Rally or something huge with Soul Infusion I really just lose to all the AoE against any control devck. The deck doesn't really play like an aggro deck, or maybe I'm just not playing it aggressively enough. I've been considering adding something like Fungalmancer for some mid game power and to put some of my guys out of range of AoE.

    I'm not sure if this is a deck issue or an issue with my inexperience as a player.

    He's a fine finisher. You only really need to buff him to be a 3/3 for him to be threatening. 4/4 for him to be a good win condition (except against control mage, warrior or priest). I think he's fine in a zoo deck but I don't really see it outside of that.

    Yeah, I'm not as sold on Hir'reek (I think Doomguard might be a better finisher) but Spirit of the Bat is an incredibly cool card.

    Have you had much luck with Scalehide? I find it's a little slow. But it does have nice synergy with grim rally as well. I also don't know if this sort of zoo deck wants healing because the longer the game goes, the more likely you are to lose.

    So this deck is really fun. I got Hir'reek as my free Loa. So I kinda wanted to make him work.

    And at the very least this deck is fun. If I draw Spirit of the Bat this deck can go off.

    posted a message on [Theorycraft] Beast Hunter Marsh Queen

     Halazzi and Springpaw make Timber Wolf a deadly, deadly card. Along with the synergy it already has with Carnassa's Brood.

    This deck is SO much fun to play. It's really aggressive and plays a lot of minions so it's hard for slower decks to handle, but with Rexxar and Carnassa it also has a nice long game plan.

    The lynx cards and the new hunter weapon make it really good against aggro and zoo decks as well.

    Wasn't too sure about Dire Frenzy, but it's just a nice card and it synergizes nicely with the lynx. Helpless Hatchling works reasonably well too. Can get Halazzi or Carnassa out cheaper or play Tundra Rhino for cheaper. Sometimes it hits a 1 drop and that's okay. Hatchling combos nicely with Tundra Rhino too, though.

    Ideally all the AoE 4/5-cost zoo hate cards they've interspersed through out the set will be the death of aggro decks. (Seriously, the number of 3-damage mid-game AoEs added in this set is crazy). A lot of clears for turn 5 spell stones, level ups, or the 3-health boards that zoo locks summon or more decks that just wanna run Witchwood Grizzly.

    Healadin is gonna be really good against combo decks, and honestly most of the new decks are big minion-based or have much bigger mid-game power swings.

    I also think all the new rush stuff that's being introduced is going to have a big impact against aggro. It'll be hard to win the board.

    I dunno what's the best, but the decks I really want to run are:

    Feral Druid, Hand Druid, Zombie Priest (Bwonsomdi Deathrattle), Quest Hunter, Quest Warlock and Elemental Handmage.

    Do not fear power, fear those who wield it!

     But they have rush, they're never going to stick around on the board anyway.

    It's a good card but WEIRDLY designed.

    When you can actually activate this (late game) 2 damage isn't particularly useful. It's great pre-turn 4 but you're unlikely to be able to activate it then.

    Might be good in some weird spell shaman deck that runs a lot of cheap spells, but I dunno what that would look like. Would have been so much better as a priest or mage card.

    5 mana for a 2 mana stated card with no impact on play.

    Sure the value could be good, but Hunter is never been a value class.

    I don't like it

     It's not a card you're playing on turn 5 unless you're ahead I think. (In which case you're refilling to close out the game)

    Gives hunter literally everything it wants. Lots of beasts (synergy with the spirit, timber wolf, wing blast, among many other cards), removal (in concert with a lot of the previously mentioned cards as well as toxmonger) and refill -- which they really don't have otherwise.

    I don't think this fits any current hunter decks or even midrange hunter, but I'm looking forward to playing with a swarm of endless lynx.

    You can get an Emeryss and Duskbreaker :D

     

     Getting Emeriss in a rush-dragon deck in a class like warrior that actually has some longevity is actually crazy. I think the dragon pool right now is really, really solid. Sindragosa generates value.

    The worst dragons I can think of are Marsh Drake and MAYBE Carrion Drake. Marsh Drake can be played around with weapons potentially and carrion drake isn't that bad.

    Addled Grizzly saw no play. Is stealth and crappy stats better? Doubt it.

     We have rush now. And this is in hunter, druid had almost no way to swarm a board back then -- hunter has plenty. And stealth makes it infinitely more playable. As others have mentioned.

    Quote from ColinthePyro >>

    Are 2/2s really that much better than 1/1s from Halazzi or Unleash the Hounds? Not really. This gives me hope that one of the whizbang decks will be quest hunter though

     2 damage is so much more than 1. In Hearthstone damage really works exponentially (i.e. the difference between 3 damage and 4 damage is huge, where the difference between 6 damage and 7 damage is not as significant), and this is across multiple minions. 3 2/2s can kill a 6 health minion. 3 1/1s barely scratch it for example.

    It may actually be the most obvious power creep in the HS history so far besides - spell was changed into 3/2 minion with the same rarity, effect and mana cost (well, if we are not counting Dr 7 era)

    There're advantages to being a spell, though. Auctioneer, Shadow Visions, Lyra. I think in a combo deck you want Embrace the Shadow but in aggro decks you want this. Or really, just a heal-y package could be realised with this. Regenerate, Binding Heal, Circle of Healing.
