Demons aren't just for hunting...

Big Demon Hunter is a control Demon Hunter deck type that uses late-game Demon minions with Demon synergy effects.

The bulk of the deck's power comes from large, high-cost demons like Hulking Overfiend and Pit Commander, with are helped brought into the board with Raging Felscreamer. They use a number of mid-game AoE spells and Lifesteal minions to stabilize beforehand, such as Immolation Aura and Ashtongue Battlelord. Other late-game threats like Priestess of Fury and Coilfang Warlord continue to add pressure after they've established control of the board with big demons.

Originally, the rampant success of aggro and midrange Demon Hunter made Big Demon Hunter not only generally outclassed, but their popularity resulted in the presence of many Warlock decks running Sacrificial Pact, which countered Big Demon Hunter moreso than any other Demon Hunter archetypes. With their biggest counter and other Demon Hunter cards nerfed, the deck started to see presence in the meta.
