I have it, I'm not running it (on purpse) don't think it's good in the deck.

Particularly since I don't have micro mummies, so there's basically nothing to magnetize onto.
Snip by itself is good against control, especially if you're running Zilliax.

I mean, the deck is designed specifically to beat control warrior with Mechano-Egg, and Mechanical Whelp as zilliax/hero power targets, and lots of reborn minions just to complete the quest. I'm 100% against control warrior so far.

The deck is looking for more ways to not die, and ways to beat enormous minions early on (like a big High Priest Ahmet board, or conjurer's callinged giants).

Know what card I wish was still in standard? Stoneskin Basilisk. I would run that in this deck unironically. Good target for the hero power.

Dean Ayala, Kripp, and Rania came into my thread. Good times.

Nice!

Kripp didn't post in fairness, but he's said in more than a few videos that he reads any thread she posts in.

Astounding! You had a win streak of 34 games in Tavern Brawl!


Apparently I played a lot of tavern brawl last month.
When someone is giving you his opinion, you should receive it with deep gratitude even though it is worthless.
Huh? Finger!? What the hell?

Yeah, I had a weird one as well:
While playing Warrior you beat Warrior 93.8% of the time in Tavern Brawl.


It looks like they counted the mini Blackrock Mountain adventure in the stats, and I guess all of those games counted as Warrior vs Warrior?

Got Golden Priest Quest from a random pack, very happy to get that I've wanted to try out Quest Priest. But I guess that means I'll probably want to craft High Priest Amet.

Nah, I think Quest makes the High Priest Amet deck worse.

The deck that actually wants Quest is wall Mass Resurrection priest.

Here's a sample decklist:

Which...does probably require Catrina Muerte. (King Pharoris looks pretty cuttable). But typically doesn't run High Priest Amet.

I've been running that deck and Pharois is garbage in it. Cut him for an early drop.

I'm pushing rank 4 with a Highlander Quest Hunter I put together. I'm really pleased with how tuned it feels, though I'm sure there are a couple more optimizations I could make. I feel like i lose to zoolock 9 times out of 10 though, but I haven't run into any other matchups but that one that seem awful and generally feel favored.

So I guess I have a couple of questions.

1) Are there any tech cards that could swing the zoo matchup that aren't terrible for the general goal of quest hunter?

2) failing that, what deck curb stomps zoo in the event that I see so many I need to switch decks?

So far I've just been taking my lumps when I hit zoo and winning most of the rest.

Depends on the variant of zoo. But in general board clears and big taunts, so like Explosive Trap, Baron Geddon, having a decent sized mech on the board and then magnetizing Zilliax onto it.

For context, no hunter deck has a really good matchup against zoo, but the ones with close-to 50-50 are
Highlander, Mech, and Secret Hunter.

(I would also probably mulligan the quest against zoo; you need to get board control and run them out of gas, you probably have the lategame anyway).

2) failing that, what deck curb stomps zoo in the event that I see so many I need to switch decks?


If you want an actual counter deck, the deck that s***s on zoo is control warrior.

Actually, I think full on taunt handbuff warrior with Into the Fray and Infested Goblin probably kills it even harder. Something like this:
