Hunter Snake Trap

How are you guys getting these. Too craft it it's like 400 Arcane Dust to create. Is this the only method to get that card is to craft it?

Thanks,

If someone wants it bad enough, they'll get the dust for it. Or maybe they just lucked out with a pack. Either way, I'm not sure if it's worth going out of your way to craft. I'm currently using a secret-heavy hunter deck, but I see little point in running Snake Trap. It's not bad, but it doesn't really fit with my strategy.

I think the snake card is a must for the Hunter Deck. to draw 3 Beasts is pretty OP even know they are 1and 1. I have been running without it and doing fine but I think it adds a bit more to your Beast Artillary.

If you're running a dedicated UTH combo, you don't need it. But snake trap is very good in a standard hunter deck, where you have beast synergy - especially buzzards and hyenas. One common play is to play a buzzard and a snake trap on the same turn. If your opponent is not very smart, he will attack the buzzard with a stronger creature, but then the trap triggers and you get to draw 3 cards. High level players don't fall for this, though.

Snake Trap is also great when you have a Buzzard out and they attack it. You draw 3 cards on top of getting 3 beasts on the board.... I started playing Hunter because Snake Trap was my first epic from a booster pack.

I think that for UTH and snake trap is great synergy. It gives a lot of power with unleashing this combo.

Hi!

Biggest problem with ST is that it's really easy to scout out and most of the players will prefer to check the ST last as they know what it can do due the beast aggro being a pain for everyone in early beta. I have tried this trap in aggro, UtH and Control and i must say only thing where i would run it is aggro.

For UtH it sounds pretty amazing. Get 3 1/1 that you can buff up when you do the combo. Problem is that you won't be having any minions on the board that the enemy will hit. It's great when it goes off and they can't AoE them. I still think there isn't room for ST and you are most likely better off just using the Hero Power.

For Control the problem is that the 1/1 minions won't do much for you as you won't have anything to combo them with. What i tried to get off from them was that i can ping the last damages to enemy minions when my other controll cards fail to finish the minion. I also have a bit sceved view as i run Abomination against UtH and other aggro decks and most often than not the snakes get triggeder by them attacking the Abom and the Abom blows the snakes up. I just really like the Abom for AoE controll and i decided to keep it instead of the ST.

For Aggro it's pretty good. Possibilitis for combos are many and this trap can get you more value out of your other cards. You also will be having so many minions on the board that they have to hit them with their minions most likely.

All that said, i wouldn't suggest anyone crafting these. 800 dust is half way to a legendary of your choise and these cards aren't that great!

I got mine from a standard deck, amazing card. Included in all my decks;

Snake Trap + Buzzard = 3 additional cards, drop the +1 to all wolf, unleash the hounds and if any other beasts are present it makes for a great assault. Snakes are great when you can buff them, I usually try and tank and throw some shots in while saving the perfect 3 cards to put down when my mana is up.

I always hold on to ST until i have at least one hyena. I'll play the ST and potentially a buzzard if i have it, let the enemy trigger the ST and then pop down my hyena, suicide all my snakes to take down their enemies, and suddenly i have a very buffed hyena and usually a clear board on their side. Always a fun combo. If they're able to kill it right away, its usually an expensive investment to do so and is still worth it.

I crafted my pair of Snake traps, and had to disenchant several cards to do so, IMO they are must have for any hunter deck. Buzzard + Snake Trap is an incredibly powerful combo that should be baited whenever possible. I like to have a empty board then drop misdirection snake trap and buzzard, next turn drop timber wolves to buff snakes. A deck that revolves around snakes can easily outplay a deck that revolves around UTH, but have both for good measure.

Exactly, it says attacked. Spells are not attacks. Only attacks are attacks.

It's like you've never played a game where words have very specific meanings, and think you can just handwave your way into making any word mean whatever you want it to mean. Just a hint, that doesn't work so well when you're dealing with computers.
