Hearthstone: Modified Face Hunter

Hello everybody, Geek Generation here.

After the initial success with the first iteration of Face Hunter, i ran into a streak of losses. There was a sudden boom of Warrior players at rank 6 and 5. I noticed the Patron Warriors were running Shield Block and some were even running Harrison Jones.

I decided to give the Shield Block version of Patron Warrior a try, then decided to retry Face Hunter with a second iteration. Changed cards in italics.

Face Hunter 1.1

1 x Hunter’s Mark
2 x Glaivezooka
2 x Freezing Trap
2 x Quick Shot
1 x Eaglehorn Bow
2 x Animal Companion
2 x Kill Command
2 x Unleash the Hounds

2 x Abusive Sergeant
2 x Webspinner
2 x Haunted Creeper
1 x Ironbeak Owl
2 x Knife Juggler
2 x Mad Scientist
1 x Scavenging Hyena
2 x Arcane Golem
1 x Loatheb
1 x Savannah Highmane

I swapped Leper Gnomes for Webspinners and Wolfriders for Loatheb and Savannah Highmane. This change made a huge reduction on the quick damage output in exchange for minions with more staying power.

Though Leper Gnomes provide more damage, Webspinners aren’t too bad. The extra beasts and/or Webspinner itself helps to activate Kill Command more often. I swapped Flare for Scavenging Hyena. The Hyena doesn’t benefit much from Webspinner as there seem to be a lack of 1 drops with 1 health at these ranks.

The more significant change was from Explosive Trap to Freezing Trap. For some reason, Explosive Traps didn’t seem to be working very well. It gets played around too frequently. While Freezing Trap does get played around too, i feel that their value is slightly higher because it can at times help to protect the minions from dying.

After this change, i got into another win streak. Though i suspect these win and lose streaks are just part of the nature of ranks 6 and 5.

Geek Generation out.
