Hearthstone Descent of Dragons Deck Guide: Quest Hunter

Hearthstone Descent of Dragons Deck Guide: Quest Hunter

Quite underestimated at the time of its announcement, the Quest Hunter archetype is making a comeback into the ladder. Get ready to Unseal the Vault!

Hearthstone Descent of Dragons Deck Guide: Quest Hunter

Descent of Dragons has finally arrived in Hearthstone and with it the new Invoke mechanic, the new Galakrond hero for E.V.I.L classes and side quests.

While it used to be considered pretty weak with the previous expansion, the Quest Hunter is back with a new decklist that uses the midrange tool brought by Descent of Dragons to the Hunter class.

Quest Hunter


New cards: Unseal the Vault, Diving Gryphon, Faceless Corrupter, Veranas, Shu'ma


Your goal is simple: quickly complete the quest with Springpaw and all the other cards summoning minions (Swarm of Locusts, SN1P-SN4P, Hench-Clan Hogsteed, Desert Spear, etc). Clear the Way, the new Hunter side quest, allows you to add a little more punch to the deck while allowing you to summon an additional minion. Once you've acquired the new hero power, the Unleash the Hounds combo allows you to quickly find the lethal. Don't forget the Sea Giant to support your board, while Veranas gives you the ability to handle your opponent's board much more easily.

Throughout the game and until the quest is complete, you'll need to keep track of the number of minions summoned and when you'll have access to your new toy. Indeed, the quest does mention SUMMONED minions and not PLAYED, which allows all the Deathrattles, Reborn and other board generations like Shu'ma to advance the total. Eventually, you'll soon realize that it's coming to an end sooner than expected.

From now on, go flood the ladder with this deck!
