Top 500 NA with Leoroxx hunter guide / discussion

Proof

So as well all know post nerfs face hunter and secret paladin are ruling the roost, whilst decks like rush warrior, control warlock, and control priest have also become quite popular.

Leoroxx hunter is a deck that I experimented with pre nerfs but ultimately decided that the libram matchup was so bad it wasn't worth playing (alongside not being fast enough to punish lunacy draws), however post rotation (and having to drop priest due to all the warlocks I've been facing) I've found quite a bit of success with it both between feasting on the control decks and non lunacy equipped mages out there as well as taking advantage of everyone mulliganing for face hunter.

The Core

2x Selective Breeder

2x Warsong Wrangler

2x Trampling Rhino

1x Zixor, Apex Predator

1x Beastmaster Leoroxx

1x King Krush

The central package the deck wins with, leoroxx summons a bunch of massive beasts on turn 7/8 and you immediately win, these are the only beasts we play in the deck so our tutors are consistent and we don't risk the chance of ruining our leoroxx turns, Rhino is played at 2 copies because it's just a stellar card all around right now and is fine to play on it's own or from leoroxx

Good Hunter Cards

2x Tracking

2x Wound Prey

2x Quick Shot

2x Tame Beast

2x Scavenger's Ingenuity

2x Piercing Shot

1x Mankrik

1x Rinling's Rifle

1x Barak Kodobane

All of these cards are irreplaceable and fit into almost every hunter deck right now, mankrik is an honorable hunter card and mankrik into kodobane will just win matchups on it's own.

The Flex

2x Mystery Winner

2x Wandmaker

1x Scrap Shot

1x Taelan Fordring

When playing the HS replay list I often found myself getting ran over in the early game by aggressive decks and passing my turn against control decks, mystery winner actually ends up being stellar vs decks like paladin as the secret pool is very small right now and you can consistently pull either freezing or explosive trap, and alongside rinlings rifle you can setup turns with snake trap + open the cages in conjunction. Wandmaker might seem like a weird card in hunter but right now the 1 mana spell pool is quite strong (worst being lock & load) and this type of hunter likes any early body it can throw on the board (that isn't a beast) as any chip damage you can do early on at all is super significant since your lategame burst and burn is so high. Scrap shot is the 30th card and can definitely be cut but it's been pretty decent for me so far as a form of some extra reach / board control especially leading into a rhino turn. Taelan pulls krush or leoroxx which we need both of to win and between rinlings rifle / mystery winner its very easy to setup taelan + pack tactics which is nuts.

The Mulligan

always keep – mystery winner, wandmaker, leoroxx, mankrik

aggro – wound prey, zixor

control – selective breeder, warsong wrangler, kodobane

Against control your win condition is 2-3 king krushes being pulled from leoroxx, but with the amount of burn and chip damage this deck has you often just setup for raw krush on 9 to kill your opponent.

Against aggro the secrets save your life, absolutely nobody is playing around explosive trap right now and wandmaker almost always pulls a card to help you control the board early.

Cards to consider

Kol'kar pack runner – we all know this card is fucking insane, I just haven't tested it yet, but it could very well be worth just tossing scrap shot and a scavenger's ingenuity (or taelan) to play 2 of these.

Deadly shot – I played one of this pre nerf as you need it against libram of hope but post nerf almost everyone is playing aggro secret, this card is not good against face hunter or aggro secret and the possibility of screwing up the mankrik pull turns me off of playing this.

Matchups

Warlock, Priest – Grouping these together as it's basically an autowin, they don't pressure you at all early and you either kill them with leoroxx or through steady pressure in the later turns as once you start rhinoing their wandmakers and soul jailers to death they take way too much damage to stabilize and control the board at the same time.

Warrior – Freezing trap is an all star here against their handbuffed minions but beware of bumper car tokens that can eat it, this deck doesn't pressure that hard without anything to hit and has no healing.

Paladin – secrets save your life, freezing trap is clean vs goody two shields and wound prey / rinlings rifle + explosive trap lets you setup board clears that ignore avenge, zixor is often clutch in this matchup to let you stabilize and swing the game as they play no board clear. Still definitely the hardest matchup and libram paladin is majorly unfavored.

Mage – Deck gets absolutely dominated without lunacy highrolls, I've never lost to a mage with this deck but I got close once in a game where they pulled 3 ice barriers from ring toss to almost stabilize. Discover as many krush's as possible against this deck as they don't play many minions for you to rhino over and slamming krush not only puts a ton of pressure on them but messes up their mask of c'thun since he's a beefcake

Rogue – No healing and a bunch of weak minions for rhino to plow over, this matchup is really easy outside of them getting an insane octobot -> field scout turn.

Face hunter – the secrets destroy this matchup, explosive trap saves you from nutty kol'kar openings, freezing trap is a direct answer to felmaw and protects your weaklings from rhino, outside of them highrolling mankrik into kodobane this matchup has been pretty easy.

Overall this deck has surprised me big time post nerfs and I'd love to hear some other peoples experiences / ideas for the deck, right now hearthstone is in a dire lack of combo decks and with everyone mulliganing for aggro I think this deck has a sleeper opportunity to excel.
