Best Demon Hunter Decks for Scholomance (August 2020)

Demon Hunter being the first new class added to Hearthstone since the days of beta caused quite a bit of problems in the meta for Blizzard.  It ate more than a few nerfs, but hopefully they've gotten it to a place where it will not be so polarizing. Now with another new expansion on the way, we'll be taking a look at the Best Demon Hunter Decks you can play in the Scholomance Academy! This class can be very versatile, so there should be quite a few viable options available to try. We're taking a look at all of the top deck lists for the Standard and Wild meta.

With all of the new decks that will be coming out at the beginning of the new Scholomance expansion, you will want to be very careful with what you craft. A deck can be dominant one day, and then never heard from again a few days later. The meta will be shifting quite a bit, so don't feel the need to invest in expensive cards right away. Try to build within whatever cards you get out of your packs, and wait to see what decks look best to craft.

Best Standard Demon Hunter Decks

Demon Hunter's best deck in Scholomance is Tempo Demon Hunter. This isn't too much of a surprise early in the game, because the deck has largely just applied some of the powerful new cards from the new expansion.

Aggro/Tempo Demon Hunter

This deck is largely the same as the previous version, but has been powered up a bit again due to some of the new Scholomance cards. Voracious Reader is an aggro deck's dream because it will feed you additional cards early on. These cards encourage you to dump your hand, which is what an aggressive deck really wants to do. You've also got Demon Companion which will get you some potentially powerful board presence early in the game, and then there's Vilefiend Trainer who establishes a mid-game way to get some board presence.

Soul Fragment Demon Hunter Deck

Soul Fragments are one of the big new mechanics added to the game in the Scholomance expansion. The Soul Fragment card itself isn't particular interesting, it restores two health to your hero when it is drawn and casts automatically. The real interest of these is that there are cards that get buffs when you have them in your deck. One such card is Soulshard Lapidary, which destroys a fragment in your deck and gives your hero +5 attack on that turn. That's a pretty large amount of damage, and if you combine that with the weapon Marrowslicer and Glaivebound Adept, you start to see that your opponent is going to be taking a whole lot of damage in the middle turns of the game.

Demon Hunter also got Shadowlight Scholar and Soulciologist Malicia which benefit from Soul Fragments. We'll see if these get thrown into a midrange shell or if they find their way into more of a control based strategy.

Best Wild Demon Hunter Decks

Wild can be a bit difficult to predict, so here's a look at some decks that have been successful on the Wild ladder. You will find that the meta of Wild doesn't fluctuate as much as Standard does when a new expansion is released. This generally only happens if one Standard deck in particular is very dominant. Normally, you will notice that just the most powerful cards out of the set find their way into decks.

Wild Odd Demon Hunter Deck

Not much from Scholomance was required to keep this deck powerful. It looks like Magehunter is the only real current addition from the expansion in the list. The hero power gets you an additional attack power, so you can punch your opponent or take down minions more easily.

  1. I tried to use first deck code but got a message saying that the hero is locked???
    Please make with the first demon hunter hero.

    1. Have you not done the Demon Hunter PVE mode? You need to do that to unlock the hero. The code worked fine for me.

    1. I’m not sure what you mean. If you’re talking about Maiev, you make your opponent’s minion go dormant so you can get to the face!

    1. It cycles through a lot of cards, so later in the game you end up only having singles in your deck which activates it.
