    It would be fun to play an ‘Emerissed’ Leeroy Jenkins!

    This deck looks awesome for the fact that you’ve managed to squeeze FOUR hunter legendaries into a deck. I remember the days when the only hunter legendary worth playing was Savannah Highmane 😉

    Substitution for Harrison? Any?

        Yeah, but Harrison has the draw card, even been situational, hunter has a low draw. I was thinking in the value of draw too.

          You’re already getting a kind of draw from Tracking and Stitched Tracker but you don’t normally want too much draw in a recruit deck because if you draw your big beasts before you play Kathrena she becomes much less powerful. Personally I worry about Tracking in these kinds of decks because of the way you end up removing three cards from your deck by using it. That’s offset a bit by the Dire Frenzy to put some back in again but, even so, I’m curious about the Harrison choice because of that. I guess draw helps with the Emeriss plan in that you want a bigger hand to get the Emeriss buff on and draw will help you pull your Dire Frenzied stuff which will then double the Dire Frenzy buff. It almost seems like two competing win conditions!

    Excellent deck, the mechanics are understood without problems.

      So do u care to give a little hint about which beast will be most benefit buffed within Dire Frenzy?

        One advantage of Frenzy here is that it adds three more beasts in the deck for Kathrena to pull. This can be really useful if you’ve pulled most of your good stuff already. So I would say a Witchwood Grizzly might be a good target if you haven’t activated Kathrena yet. Outside of that it’s usually best on cheap charge minions like the hounds from Unleash.

      And why use Emeriss? You only have total 6 minions in this deck and the chance that having more than 2 in ur hand is minimum.

        It’s not only 6 minions,
        + 2 (from stitched tracker)
        + 6 (from Dire Frenzy)
        + 1 each turn once you’ve played DK Rexar

          Thank you for the reply. But still the Emeriss can only affect the cards in your hand no matter how many buffed cards in the deck. Furthermore, it’s battlecry ability gonna be a wasted if it is dragged on to the board by Katherena.

          I had tried this build against both facing hunter & Taunt Druid, Witchwood Grizzly + Dire Frenzy + Katherena work amazing while I never get Emeriss’s battlecry triggered as exception.

            emeriss is a dragon so cannot be pulled by Kathrena. And yeah emeriss might be a weak card but it just works as an extra win condition against a control match up.

        Emeriss is a meme card that is generally considered too slow but if you can pull it off on even a few good chargers in your hand it can be really good. Buff an unleashed hound with Dire Frenzy and pull a couple before Emeriss and you have two 1 mana 8/8 chargers next round! If you have King Krush in hand he’s a 16/16 charger for 9 and if you have Krush and a Hound then that’s 24 burst. Alternatively, A Witchwood Grizzly is going to be a 24 health as a base before deducting 1 per card in the opponent’s hand so, worst case, a 6/17 taunt!

    Anyone feel like explaining how the emeriss twist works compared to the normal big beast lists with devilsaur? What are the main targets for emeriss?

    This deck is sick. You should make a small tutorial for it. It’s gonna be a good one this meta
