No minions? No problem!

Spell Hunter is a Hunter deck type, that was first used after release of Kobolds and Catacombs. This deck has no minions to activate To My Side! and Rhok'delar effects. It relies on minions summoned by Animal Companion, To My Side! and Lesser Emerald Spellstone.

The deck shares similarities with Secret Hunter, where the main bulk of the early game is playing Secrets to power up Lesser Emerald Spellstone. Although it doesn't get the benefits of Cloaked Huntress for huge tempo swings or Subject 9 for massive card draw, as well as being unable to include Neutral tech cards like Spellbreaker or Mossy Horror, To My Side! and Rhok'delar adds great amount of value. Because of its ability to function without minions, it was commonly used to abuse the Barnes and Y'Shaarj combo before they rotated out of the Standard year.
