I piloted this homebrew Vereesa Hunter deck from Diamond 10 to Legend this season, with a record of 34-11. To be clear, this record is for ONLY the games in which I have used this deck build while in Diamond. I did not use any other deck in Diamond. Scroll further below to see the decks against which I played, as well as the recordings for them!

Mulligans:

  • Always keep Phase Stalker and Rinling's Rifle
  • Aggro: keep Explosive Trap
  • APM/Mozaki: keep Pressure Plate
  • Against most slow decks, keeping Barak Kodobane is fine.
  • Other card(s) to keep in other matchups are at your own discretion, but usually you're good if you get at least a Phase Stalker and/or Rinling's.

Strategy

The deck's win-condition is pretty simple: you'll want to play Vereesa, then in the subsequent turn, attack with the weapon and play all the burn pieces such as Rapid Fire, Wound Prey, Kill Command, etc. The deck can kill from 30, which is where Thaurissan would come in. In some matchups, the Secret package plus Petting Zoo are enough to win.

Based on the games I've played, it has hard matchups against any Reno deck, and also against Warlock (Disco is fine, but Reno, Control, Cube, and Mecha'thun are troublesome; to be honest, I faced only one Warlock in Diamond, but ran into a bunch in Platinum). However, it can hold its own against aggro, and does really well against slow decks like Big Priest.

In general, you will likely have to spend burn pieces (Rapid Fire, Quick Shot, Arcane Shot, etc.) against aggro to keep them at bay. Which is fine, because if you can survive the initial onslaught, you win anyway. It's no good to reserve the burn pieces for the combo if you don't even survive till then.

Flare is specifically for the Mozaki and Secret Mages matchups to kill their Ice Block. Of course, it's nice against Paladin too since Tax and Secret Paly are popular right now.

This deck can get hard countered by Ooze and Stickyfinger, but even if they play those, it's not an auto-lose situation. You still have Thalnos to get explosive burn, and Thaurissan to get the discounts to achieve the win-condition. Thankfully the chance of Ooze/Stickyfinger coming in to ruin your day isn't too likely, since Kingsbane is not very popular right now. It's not unusual for Reno decks to tech these cards so still watch out (I've gotten my spell dmg weapon Oozed once and still won that game, this was in Platinum).

Secret package is intended to stabilise and control the early game, so it's really important to fish for the secrets that will balance the pressure or swing the game in your favour. Rinling's and Phase Stalker are awesome in this regard, since the former allows you to pick the appropriate secret for the situation, and Phase Stalker's deck thinning is extremely important. When you've accumulated many Secrets, playing Petting Zoo is a great way to secure the game against decks that don't have a strong answer to it. It is not a huge deal if they clear the 3/3s.

Pressure Plate is an amazing countermeasure against Mozaki and APM Mages, especially the former. Be careful about APM Mages though. In Platinum back when I wasn't running Flare, I faced an APM Mage against whom I took too long to get my combo off, and they had been dealing damage to my face using spells over many turns despite their SAs/Flamewakers being killed (flamewaker wasn't a significant factor). I "had lethal" (triggered their Ice Block), but lost the next turn. Also, if your RNG sucks, your Pressure Plate may hit an SA rather than Flamewaker. This had happened to me in one of the games where I was on the precipice of hitting Legend. 🙁

That's all I have to say about the deck itself. As mentioned above, if you're interested in seeing the recordings for each match I did in this Diamond run, feel free to access them below! If you made it this far, I appreciate your reading the post!

Recorded Matches

Note that for one of the matches, I lost the recording, and for two of the matches, the recording was corrupted and captured only the last moments. Also, matches #1-27 do not have sound. Apologies for the inconvenience.
