As a master hunter player, I think a UtH deck is actually quite fair at higher competitive play.
It is the only viable way for hunters to play right now, nerfing it will nerf the entire class. I honestly think without UtH, there arent much options for us
The deck cruises through platinum and diamond, but once you hit diamond 3 and up, it gets a bit harder to play the deck. When I hit masters, I saw my winning rate go way down dramatically.
People forget that everyone knows most hunters run some form of uth or another. If they see a hunter stock piling cards in their hands, it is obvious what they're running. Most good players I have lost against, either rush me down too hard before turn 6 or 7.
Other good players save their strong taunts for turns 6-7 because they can assume what I am doing.
Any decks without taunts and are really aggressive (such as murloc) just rush me down quickly.
Players of UtH know that the deck can be quite high risk and high reward in higher level play of masters, it is risky to attempt to survive until 7 or 8 or higher in certain games where they can punish you quite severely before then.
Also people who complain about UtH and how op it is, here is a question for you In the most recent big tournaments, this means MLG Open and other big tournaments with big name players, how often do you see UtH decks at the top? Rarely now. Why? Because most competitive players know how to play against it or how to defend against it.
Anyways I would love to hear everyone's thoughts and ideas as well. [b]Please no raging and contribute something meaningful or thought provoking in response, all trolls and those who haven't taken the time to read my points will be ignored
