As with all Midrange Hunter decks you need to think about the opponent you're facing, and the position that you need to assume in order to overcome them. Up against an aggressive opponent? Take a more controlling position, let them run out of steam, and then take charge of the situation. Against more control-focused opponents, you'll need to wrap up the match a lot more quickly.
Regardless of who you're up against, getting presence on the board from the very first turn will make a huge difference to your overall odds of success. See the Mulligan section for more details on this approach. Having taken charge of the early and mid stages of the game - and established your presence - you should be able to start pushing through for game-ending damage.
