Legion Hunter Changes Overview
Understanding Hybrid Hunter
Hunter was previously a very binary class. Either you were going face 100 percent of the time or you were developing your board and prioritizing value with a more Midrange focused deck. And this was the status quo for what seemed like an eternity. Everyone knew that Midrange Hunter was very solid but lost out to its faster paced brother. Then along came this little invention called Hybrid Hunter which merged the two and completely changed everything we thought we knew.
Because of this invention, matches against the Hunter have gotten significantly more difficult. You used to be able to know within the first two turns exactly what your opponent's win conditions were. But Hybrid Hunter slotted s alongside mid game juggernauts like . By doing so it allowed the deck to survive a ton of early game pressure that Midrange was unable to, but it also gave Face a way to stay alive whilst making some trades.
But surely something that merges many strengths also assumes many weaknesses?
Well not exactly.
can beat pretty much any deck it matches up against and that’s partially what makes it so appealing. But while it doesn’t have any inherent Achilles heel, it doesn’t come with as many free wins that its brethren receive.

Hunter: Not Dead Yet
After the nerf to Starving Buzzard many predicted that Hunter was about to fall to the bottom of the totem pole. A lot of people were excited for this shift and what it would mean for the ladder and the overall balance of Hearthstone as Hunter had been on top for quite a while at that point. Hell, I was one of them. The first night after the nerfs went live I played Handlock all night and had a blast. Little did I know that almost instantly Hunters would make their triumphant return. Sure, the deck list has changed and the mid-range Hunter isn't nearly as good as it was with the Buzzard/Unleash combo but the class is going as strong as ever.
In this article we'll take a look at what a modern Hunter deck looks like without Starving Buzzard or Leeroy Jenkins and break down each card and its place in the deck.

Patch 5.1: New Rare Tames
Over 100 low-level rares were also added in the most recent patch--many have distinctive colors that make them unique Hunter tames. In addition, Arcane Wyrms are now tamable serpents, and several received recolors for more variation.
If you're not a Hunter, these new rares don't drop any fancy loot, but they do give a significant amount of experience for killing them. The list is fun just to browse as well because many have clever names, like
, a monkey with a fez.
We've broken down the rares by continent and level, including zone details and 3D models, as well as by pet family. Tames with unique colors/models are marked in italics.
