Giant Hunter is a wild-exclusive hunter deck featuring Naga Sea Witch and an extensive use of giants. After a Knights of the Frozen Throne patch, Naga Sea Witch's ability applied before all other enchantments on card cost, making giants very easy to play. For example, with Naga Sea Witch, a Molten Giant costs 0 when the player is at 25 health, the Mountain Giant costs 0 when the player has 5 cards in hand, etc. After a nerf to Naga Sea Witch during The Witchwood meta, Giant Hunter is no longer a prominent deck in any format, however, the deck is still playable, often setting up turn 9 lethals. The deck utilizes many tools such as Tracking and Stitched Tracker to find Naga Sea Witch consistently, and King's Elekk is very likely to draw a giant. Other Joust cards are also sometimes used.
