Representing the Hunter class, Ol' Barkeye's card pool contains various Hunter playstyles such as Beast synergy, Deathrattles, Mechs, Secrets and spells. His alternate Hero Power Opportunist is mainly suited toward an aggressive minion-centric playstyle, while Pet Training is useful for Quest Hunter or decks which regulate tempo to avoid burning out your card supply.

Ol' Barkeye has synergy for plenty of treasures or Anomalies; cost reduction effects (alongside treasures like The Muscle and Murgatha) allow him to build up his board quickly in one turn, Elixir of Vigor can allow him to complete The Marsh Queen sooner, Deathrattle duplication and Nesting can double the efficiency of his Deathrattle cards, and Stargazing allows him to either deal 4 additional damage to the enemy hero or gain two Shifting Chameleons for 0 mana to stay prepared. Expedite and Reductive can allow him to play 1-mana minions for free, but their reduced cost makes them invalid to make progress on The Marsh Queen.
