I want to introduce everyone to my new style of Hunter deck. Everybody thinks that Hunter always hits the face and I wanted to prove that other styles of Hunter play are possible. Here is my Reno Jackson Hunter deck. was ranked at 14th place in Asian ladder with this deck. I don't mean that's something I should be too proud of, but maybe it's enough to prove this deck works.
At first, the main theme of playing Reno Hunter is to 'clear the field'. You don't use your weapons to hit the face. Instead, remove the enemy's field using your weapon and heal your hero with Healbot and Reno Jackson. Savannah Highmane, Dr. Boom, and Ragnaros will deal the damage. On the first 4 to 5 turns, your play will be not so different from normal Midrange Hunter, so your opponent will probably want to protect his hero's hp and he or she might waste some good cards such as Execute to clear your field. Then your high-value cards can dominate the field.
Reno Hunter vs other decks
vs Freeze Mage 9:1
Owl, Deadly Shot, Hunter's Mark are all effective versus Doomsayer. You have 2 powerful heal cards, no need to talk about Flare.
vs Tempo Mage 8:2
use Reno after the Mage hits your face with Fireball.
vs Zoo Warlock 8:2
MCT and Unleash the Hounds is very effective. You rarely need to hit the face without the hero power, Somehow you will find the Warlock is dying.
vs Rogue 7:3
rogue's damage is limited but your hero power isn't. Reno is enough to destroy Rogue's will.
vs Face Hunter 6:4
Heal cards will make you win.
vs Druid 6:4
Deadly Shot is really effective versus Druid and Reno is too. But Explosive Trap will do nothing.
vs Secret Paladin 5:5
Flare is good, BGH is good, Deadly Shot is good, Owl is good, Reno is good, MCT is good, but still Secret Paladin is strong.
vs Control Warrrior 5:5
Actually both decks are weak on drawing cards. It depends on luck whether you have the right card you need at the right time Reno is not that effective versus Warrior. Normal Midrange Hunter would be better versus Warrrior.
vs Handlock 4:6
Both decks have similar play themes but Warrlock will be more strong due to the Giants.
vs Priest 4:6
You should use Reno just as 4/6 stat minion.
vs Midrange Paladin 3:7
Opponent also has good heal cards too.
vs Classic Shaman 3:7
Totems will choke your field.
vs Patron Warrior 1
You can neither clear Patrons nor end game before they come. You just cannot win.
I don't claim this new type Hunter will replace the former style of Hunter.
Just it's really fun deck. Really.
