Putting the "Hunter" in Demon Hunter.

Aggro Demon Hunter (Also known as Face Demon Hunter) is a type of aggressive demon hunter deck which focuses on dealing damage directly to the enemy hero.

With a single-minded focus on hero damage, Aggro Demon Hunter seeks to quickly defeat the opponent before they can mount a defense, using constant pressure from their Demon Claws hero power, fast weapons like Umberwing and Aldrachi Warblades, and direct damage from cards like Glaivebound Adept and Metamorphosis. The deck deals heavy damage throughout the early turns, before finishing with burst before they run out of fuel.
