Deathrattle Hunter is a midrange Hunter deck type that makes heavy use of Deathrattle synergies.

Deathrattle Hunter first came to scene in the Year of the Mammoth. This version of Deathrattle Hunter made heavy use of Journey to Un'GoroDevilsaur Egg, using Deathrattle activators like Knights of the Frozen ThronePlay Dead and Journey to Un'GoroTerrorscale Stalker to gain a massive tempo boost afterwards. Later in the game as their power tapers off, other higher-cost Deathrattle minions like The Boomsday ProjectMechanical Whelp and Kobolds & CatacombsKathrena Winterwisp are used. Other cards like Kobolds & CatacombsCandleshot and The WitchwoodWitchwood Grizzly provide defense. The goal is to create a very sticky board while maintaining pressure with early Deathrattle activators.

In the Year of the Dragon, Deathrattle Hunter decks switched to utilizing high-cost Deathrattle minions instead, hybridizing with Mech Hunter.
