Midrange Demon Hunter (also known as Soul Demon Hunter) is a Demon Hunter deck type that looks to take early control of the board and snowball its lead in the later turns.

The archetype focuses on hero attacks, buffing weapons and using the demon hunter hero power LegacyDemon Claws to efficiently control the board and pressure the opponent. Since the hero is used for most trading, Lifesteal is very important for this deck, particularly the healing provided by LegacyAldrachi Warblades. Past the early game, the deck tries to secure the board with large minions such as Ashes of OutlandPriestess of Fury and Ashes of OutlandImprisoned Antaen, and removal spells like Demon Hunter InitiateEye Beam. The deck also boasts great card draw - albeit card draw that requires some hand management - with cards like Ashes of OutlandSpectral Sight, Ashes of OutlandCrimson Sigil Runner, and Ashes of OutlandSkull of Gul'dan.

In Scholomance Academy, a variant of this deck appeared that makes heavy use of Scholomance AcademySoul Fragment synergy cards to control the board and bolster their hero's attack with Scholomance AcademyMarrowslicer, Scholomance AcademySoulshard Lapidary, and Scholomance AcademySoulciologist Malicia.
