Magic Decks #8 – Hunter Rush

MD004 - Annoy the Opponent LongIn this week’s ‘Magic Decks’, we will be looking at a deck that is very popular in the current meta; the Hunter Rush!

The Hunter Rush deck has a very simple objective; hit the opponent in the face as fast as possible and finish him off. It synergises very well with the Hunter’s hero power; Steady Shot (Deals 2 damage to the enemy hero), as this consistent source of damage will snowball the rush, putting the opponent into a defensive stance early.

We will go through the decklist before explaining about it in further detail:

Hunter (16):

  • Arcane Shot x2
  • Timber Wolf x2
  • Tracking x2
  • Explosive Trap x2
  • Unleash the Hounds x2
  • Kill Command x2
  • Misdirection x2
  • Eaglehorn Bow x2

Neutral (14):

  • Wolfrider x2
  • Abusive Sergeant x2
  • Leper Gnome x2
  • Worgen Infiltrator x1
  • Bluegill Warrior x2
  • Ironbeak Owl x2
  • Arcane Golem x2
  • Leeroy Jenkins x1

This deck consists mainly of Charge minions that will allow for a quick rush to the opponent’s face.

Some form of control is also added to the deck in the form of Secrets; these Secrets however, include a possibility of damaging the opponent hero as well! It is a simple no-brainer deck that melts the opponent in a matter of turns!

Pros

  • Fun
  • Fast games

Cons

  • Susceptible to board clear
  • Weak against Taunt decks

There are variants of this deck, but you can get to see one in action here!

What do you think of this Hunter Rush deck? Will it bulldoze over the opposition?
