Weekly Legends: Y’shaarj Hunter
This week on Weekly Legends, I’m going to do some teaching. While I normally like to cover new and unique decks that are either foreign to me or not well known, today I want to cover Y’shaarj Hunter. For those that don’t know, this is a deck that was created roughly a month ago by AbarHS and it pilots very similar to the old Yogg Hunter lists. The idea here is to play an all-spell Hunter deck that wins the game through gradual damage or pulling out Y'Shaarj, Rage Unbound with Barnes. That may sound inconsistent, but this deck has a ton of power that can stand up to every popular deck in the current meta.
The reason I wanted to cover this is because it is a deck I have a lot of experience with and I think people don’t fully understand the way it pilots. it is a lot of fun, and more people should give it a chance. As a result, this is going to be different from the usual Weekly Legends in that I am going to be giving a lot more specific notes on the deck that I usually do. While I am still going to cover cards in the usual way, I really want to focus on how they slot into everything the bigger picture here. This deck is a ton of fun, and a big part of that is figuring out how it plays (especially when it comes to mulligans). While it looks very weak from the outside looking in, the further you delve into the cards and the more time you spend piloting it, the more you begin to see just what it can do.
