Face Hunter is one of Hearthstone’s oldest aggressive archetypes. Back when Leper Gnome, Arcane Golem, and Leeroy Jenkins were full strength it was able to do a ton of damage very early in the game. The archetype saw some hard times after the nerfs to these key cards.

Kobolds and Catacombs has brought this deck back to the high tiers. Candleshot gives this deck the ability to rush out Southsea Deckhand for early damage, while Dire Mole is a great early target for your beast buffs. Corridor Creeper powers your mid-game swing due to all of the small minions that will likely die in the early game. Creeper also has the beast tag which makes it a great target for Crackling Razormaw and Houndmaster.
