Standard Legend Midrange Hunter
Midrange hunter is a deck that has been around for a while and it is looking strong once again with the Whispers of the Old Gods & Karazhan Cards. Mid-Range Hunter is definitely a deck that has been played a lot in the Standard Legend Ladder and has been peaking at high legend ranks on several occasions.

This deck shines in the midgame and can struggle to keep up versus more aggressive decks in the early game. Use your early game cards such as Huge Toad, King's Elekk to apply pressure / keep up with the board. Once you start entering the midgame you can start cashing in your deck value: developing a Savannah Highmane, Houndmaster (can give you excellent trading potential or even Stampeding Kodo to take over the midgame. Call of the Wild instantly gives you a board to play with and applies pressure immediately in the late game, often used as a finisher as well.
When facing aggro you usually want to take over board and win the game through board control, but keep in mind you are still playing Hunter who can deal tons of damage over just a few turns.
Versus control you’ll most likely come at a point in the game where you want to start applying face damage with your hero power and your other damage cards: Kill Command, Quick Shot, Call of the Wild and the charge with Tundra Rhino.
With Mid-Range Hunter you will always be looking for a strong early game curve. Mulligan for your early game 2-drops: Flame Juggler King's Elekk, Huge Toad and consider keeping Quick Shot versus shaman and Warlock.
Combos & Tips
- Deadly Shot can instantly clear a big threat
- Infested Wolf pretty much guarantees you something to Houndmaster
- Tundra Rhino + a beast guarantees charge (also the deathrattles from Savannah Highmane / Infested Wolf will gain charge with Rhino on board
