Demon Hunter might be underwhelming for early game in Auto Chess. But there are many situations to carry your team by Demon Hunters. Only a Terrorblade or Anti-Hunter will be weak to opponents and friendly chess. Can build Demon-Based build with the two Demon Hunter synergy.
Terrorblade is a powerful piece with ranged attack.
Anti Mage burns an opponent’s mana on each attack. Mana Break deals 50% of the mana burned as damage to the target.
Demon Hunters are control the feel energies. Also, If there are two Demon Hunters on the board, they will protect your all friendly demons’ fel power. So, Demon Hunters, should play with the Demons. Demon Hunters can combined with Shadow Fiend, Chaos Knight, Necropos, Queen of Pain, Alchemist, Tide Hunter. In this case you get 2 Demon Hunters, 3 Warlock, 5 Demons. This way is usually hard to go because many people contest them.
The early game is most important to boost the economy. Demon Hunters will be bad choice for the early game. Warriors, Goblins/Mechs, Druids are the best opening strategies. Even so you can start with some tanks like goblin untill you get Terror Blade and Anti-Mage. When you got these, try to safe and save money to get more interest bonus. On one hand try to update your pieces to keep to be in safe. Also, Anti Mage is not a tank if he isn’t level 3. Should be behind of the tank.
