Background

See more: Hunter

From an early age the call of the wild draws some adventurers from the comfort of their homes into the unforgiving primal world outside. Those who endure become hunters. As masters of their environment, hunters are able to slip like ghosts through the trees and lay traps in the paths of their enemies. These expert marksmen drop foes dead in their tracks with flawless shots from a bow, crossbow or rifle. With the ability to wield two weapons simultaneously, hunters can unleash a flurry of blows against anyone unfortunate enough to stumble into close combat with them.

The art of survival is central to the isolated life of a hunter. Hunters track beasts with ease and enhance their own abilities by attuning themselves to the feral aspects of various creatures. Hunters are known for the lifelong bonds they form with animals of the wild, training great hawks, cats, bears, and many other beasts to fight alongside them.

Main Synergies

  • Unleash the Hounds works well with Timber Wolf and Knife Juggler, dealing extra damage with each hound. Trading them off can buff up a Scavenging Hyena.
  • Oasis Snapjaw + Houndmaster creates a strong 4/9 creature with taunt.
  • Hunter`s Mark + Unleash the Hounds / Arcane Shot can remove any minions.

Common Weaknesses

Hunter decks tend to have a limited amount of direct damage in them, which makes them weak against classes with access to strong healing spells like Warrior (through Armor) and Priest. They also lack healing themselves, so it is possible to get burned down first, if the opponent runs an aggressive deck as well.
