"The Golden Rule: If you hit your opponent's face with Highmane, you win!" - Amaz 


The Midrange Hunter specializes in controlling the board in the early game with value minions such as Haunted Creeper, Mad Scientist, and Animal Companion. Cards like Piloted Shredder and Houndmaster further strengthen the Hunter's board. By the point when Savannah Highmane and Dr. Boom are played, your opponent should be at low enough health that Eaglehorn Bow, Unleash the Hounds, and Kill Command will be enough to finish them before the game transitions into the late game.
