Hearthstone Best Demon Hunter Decks – Standard & Wild (May 2020)

It's finally here, the first new class added to Hearthstone since the days of beta! We're taking a look at the Best Demon Hunter Decks you can play in the Ashes of Outlands expansion. This class can be very versatile, so there's 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 decks that come out at the beginning of a new 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. This is especially the case in a Standard rotation situation where so much is going to change! Try to build within whatever cards you get out of your packs, and wait to see what decks look best to craft.

If you're looking for even more decks to try, check out our Best Ashes of Outlands Decks post! We've also got a look at the Best Demon Hunter Counters, if you don't want to join in on the fun.

Best Standard Demon Hunter Decks

Demon Hunter's best deck option right now is the Aggro/Tempo archetype. All other options for the class are pretty weak at the moment, so if you want to climb the ladder then that's the top choice. The class is still very popular in the Hearthstone meta, but has experienced a couple of rounds of nerfs that has brought many deck types to lower winrates.

Updated: Tempo Demon Hunter

After the third batch of nerfs it looks like the midrange-tempo based style of Demon Hunter is still the best option for the class at the moment. It's very aggressive, so it straddles that line between aggression and tempo. This is still far and away the best deck for the class right now, and is still worth taking to the ladder even after the second batch of nerfs.

Updated: Highlander Demon Hunter

If you really want to get the full Demon Hunter experience then going singleton is a good idea because you'll literally be playing just about every available card for the class! Demon Hunter has an aggressive hero power, but it also features quite a few strong draw cards that help a deck like this that could be a bit inconsistent.

You can control the board with your various spells and weapons into the late game. Once you've drained their resources, you have quite a few cards that can deal significant damage.

The nerfs have hit this archetype fairly hard, and it's much weaker than it once was. Only give this a shot if you have all the cards available for it, it's probably not worth crafting at the moment.

Best Wild Demon Hunter Decks

There's not a whole lot of difference between the Standard and Wild versions right now, but there's enough of one to take a look at some options! If you want to run the tempo version of Demon Hunter, then it's exactly like the Standard list.

Odd Demon Hunter

This is one of the few decks that actually has a fair bit of Wild cards in it because Demon Hunter's set is so limited. The hero power gets you an additional attack power, so you can punch your opponent or take down minions more easily.

    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.
