Tips on face hunter vs shaman?

HS_Spicey

Face hunter is favorable against elemental shaman and highly favorable against aggro shaman you shouldn't be struggling unless you don't know how to play your deck properly to begin with. Why would you want to trade with a deck designed for "face is the place". If they aren't nearly dead when they can get doom hammer on ... you've done something wrong.

Shaman early turns are very strong too and can constest board and clear till you equip your doomhammer. The matchup , from shaman side , felt even to me 8-5 against hunter so far all games at top 100 so losing to shaman as a hunter doesn't sound crazy imo especially the elemental version.


HS_Spicey

As I said elemental is a bit more close due to the control aspect, aggro though is far more in hunter favour.

Yeah I'm new playing this deck, still learning, i just feel like I'm spending all my cards too fast, never draw barak anyway, i just end up loosing the board and getting without cards in my hand

Then don't just blindly play them, think about what you want to achieve when you play them and what the opponent has to effect what you want to do. The REAL key to being good at this game is knowing your opponents decks so you can predict their plays and plan around them and then even start going down the track of luring them into playing cards early so they don't have them against a bigger threat you have planned later.

Maybe I should see some gameplay of the decks I'm playing against which i have no knowledge, i got frustrated and start playing everything I have, and started beeing baited trying to get lethal,i sometimes feel it's too much rng and my hand has no value but maybe that's just me not developing plays,it doesn't aways happens,but I feel I'm so unluck mostly, but I think everyone says that,right.

Yes yes I'm not native speaker lol


Neufjob

That's fair. I generally don't correct grammar/spelling, but it's a mistake that alot of native speakers make, which annoys me.


Jeyjeyp

I just type based on what I listen people say and write on the internet, never studied grammar lol, it just sounds like "loosing",i think that's why, one more thing I've learned today

Have you watched VODs of people playing the deck you have? I smashed shamans on my way to legend with face hunter

If you go first, it's very easy to just go face and force your opponent to make the trades. Going second is tougher, but try to get a big swing turn with Kolkar Pack Runner, it's hard for Shaman to retake control of the board after losing it once.
