Deathrattle Hunter first came to scene in the Year of the Mammoth. This version of Deathrattle Hunter made heavy use of Devilsaur Egg, using Deathrattle activators like Play Dead and Terrorscale Stalker to gain a massive tempo boost afterwards. Later in the game as their power tapers off, other higher-cost Deathrattle minions like Mechanical Whelp and Kathrena Winterwisp are used. Other cards like Candleshot and Witchwood Grizzly provide defense. The goal is to create a very sticky board while maintaining pressure with early Deathrattle activators.
