Hearthstone: Hunter Beast (more)
Hello everybody, Geek Generation here.
I guess i should be more concise with naming my decks. The beast deck i had was a Beast Aggro deck. Basically it wants to be played aggressively, without over-extending. Conceivably, it there could be Beast Control decks. Understandably, a Beast Control deck would have less beasts than a Beast Aggro, since a huge amount of Beasts are cheap efficient minions.
From what i’ve seen, a Hunter Control (with some Beasts) would likely have the following structure.
2 x Timber Wolf
2 x Knife Juggler
2 x Animal Companion
2 x Argent Commander
Some x Savannah Highmane
2 x Unleash the Hounds
2 x Kill Command
2 x Eaglehorn Bow
2 x Multi-Shot
Many x Traps
The basic idea of such a deck would be to play the hero ability as much as possible, every turn if the opponent aggro is not strong or the opponent is a control deck, starting from turn 2.
Speaking of traps, why doesn’t my Beast Aggro use a trap like Explosive Trap?
A fair question considering that the trap is capable of being used as a direct damage, dealing two to the opponent. The reason i don’t use it, aside from there being few cards that i would like to trim, is that the trigger happens only when the opponent attacks you. If your minion is attacked instead, the trap does not trigger. And since you’re the aggro, your opponent is likely to attack your minion whenever you have one out there.
Traps that would be good for the Beast Aggro would be Freezing Trap and Misdirection. Even then, unless i get the second Eaglehorn Bow, i won’t be adding any traps into the deck any time soon.
Until next time, Geek Generation out.
