Midrange Demon Hunter

From Hearthstone Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Midrange Demon Hunter (also known as Soul Demon Hunter) is a Demon Hunter deck type that looks to take early control of the board and snowball its lead in the later turns.

The archetype focuses on hero attacks, buffing weapons and using the demon hunter hero power Demon Claws to efficiently control the board and pressure the opponent. Since the hero is used for most trading, Lifesteal is very important for this deck, particularly the healing provided by Aldrachi Warblades. Past the early game, the deck tries to secure the board with large minions such as Priestess of Fury and Imprisoned Antaen, and removal spells like Eye Beam. The deck also boasts great card draw - albeit card draw that requires some hand management - with cards like Spectral Sight, Crimson Sigil Runner, and Skull of Gul'dan.

As of Scholomance Academy, this deck makes heavy use of Soul Fragment synergy cards to control the board and bolster their hero's attack with Marrowslicer, Soulshard Lapidary, and Soulciologist Malicia.
