[Archived] S20 Hearthstone Druid Dragon Ramp BrM

19 posts in this topic

Great deck sottle great job :). I'm loving the new decks with the dragon synergy. Blacking corruptor is really good it's like a fire elemental for 5 mana if u have a dragon. Ysera and chromaggus are awesome late dragons and immune to big game hunter which is better in this meta full of big game hunters waiting for dr boom or Ragnaros. Only changed I made is I took out one big game hunter and put a mind control tech to help with fast decks like demon zoolock and mech Mage. I also took out the zombie chow and put sylvanas. Is that ok or will it affect the effectiveness of the deck?

It's ok, you've made one change to strengthen against Aggro, and one change that weakens you. I think I would prefer to have the Chow overall though.

Yeah i think u are right the zombie chow is better and i also made another change and its working better now; i took out the 2 druids of the claws and put 2 blackwing technicians. The reason i did that is because the mana curve of the deck is too high and its hard to overcome fast decks like zoo and mech mage and blackwing technician also synergizes with the dragons and there are already 6 minions with taunts in the deck so the deck wont suffer.

 

It looks like this:

 

2 innervates
1 zombie chow
2 wild growths
2 wraths
1 big game hunter
3 blackwing technicians
1 mind control tech
2 swipes
2 keepers of the grove
2 senjin shieldmastas
2 azure drakes
2 blackwing corruptors
2 sludge belchers
1 emperor thaurissan
2 ancients of lore
2 ancients of war
1 chromaggus
1 ysera

 

The blackwing technicians serve the same purpose as the shades of maxxramas or the druids of the flame and it has the dragon synergy and the azure drakes are in place of the druids of the claw because of the dragon synergy plus the spell damage that helps the swipes and the wraths and the extra card draw.

 

4 deagons and 4 dragons activators in the deck.

I don't like Blackwing Techs in general, they do horrible things to your mulligan strategies, and it turns out getting a turn 3 3/5 isn't as much of a blowout as people thought it would be. That change is definitely not terrible though, and you're welcome to run with it and see how it goes.

So I don't have any ancients of lore and only 1 ancient of war.

I've been using 2 Antique Healbots and Sylvanas in their place. Do you have any better suggestions for replacements?

I would just choose another deck for now, the 4 7 drop Epics are too core to the deck's strategy.

Is there a chance to play this deck with one lore and one war epic? Their place can take Sylvanas and Dr.Boom for now. Any better suggestions?

I only have have one ancient of war. Should I replace him with a nefarian to get more dragon synergy or should I go sunwalker or a spider tank to replace it?

Thanks for another really fun deck Sottle! Always enjoy trying out the various decks you put up here, this one in particular has been a blast as I'm enamored with Ramp Druid to begin with. Having fantastic luck/fun with it so far just as it is !

Sunwalker is probably best for now, having the big wall of Taunts late-game is pretty important.

What do you think about replacing Ysera with Nefarian? I don't have her.

Yes, that's fine. You will be more vulnerable to Big Game Hunter though.

I'm finding hungry dragons work quite well with this deck. Normally not a fan but get early taunts out and the battle cry isn't an issue. A couple extra early big minions is a bonus, especially if they burn any removal.

Yeah I tried Hungry Dragons, they're not bad at all, but didn't quite make the cut for me. You should consider adding in a Mind Control Tech with that change as well though.

Don't know about anyone else but I've been coming up against a lot of rogue decks recently, and haven't been forced to play 2 BGHs in a game for a long time so I swapped one out for Harrison Jones and it's worked really well. I have a second version of the deck with Kel'Thuzad instead of HJ, it can be tricky to get it out and still be mana-efficient, but having it out there with the high-taunts is pretty OP!

Thoughts on replacing both Shieldmastas with Twilight Guardians once TGT comes out?

      So the latest expansion, Mean Streets of Gadgetzan, has been out for more than a month now, and I was curious what everyone´s opinion on it was. Personally, I love the set. It adds more synergy with types of cards that weren´t as popular beforehand. For example, sets like secret mage, demon warlock, taunt warrior, and beast druid/hunter, have all gotten big buffs and can be viable in the meta. I got rank 13 with secret mage and taunt warrior alone, and hope to get to legend with them. What about you?

      The live Q&A with the two well-known Hearthstone devs took place yesterday and we've made a recap of the most interesting points.
      First of all, if you want to watch the whole thing, the VOD can be found here (it starts at 14:10). If you prefer a shorter version, Redditor EpicMelon has made a 10-min video of everything important said. Ultimately, if you don't feel like watching videos, we've made a summary of anything worth noting from yesterday's Q&A.
      Ben started talking about the new player experience, a topic he has discussed again this week. He repeated that most new players start off by playing versus A.I., some go to Casual and a minority goes to Ranked. The team has made it so that in Casual new players are exclusively matched against other new players and their MMR is kept to a 50% winrate.
      One of the currently most discussed hot topics in the Hearthstone community is the Ranked ladder. The team is satisfied with how clear the current system is in how it works. However, they do realise that its grindiness and the monthly reset can be a disadvantage and feel repetitive. To counter that, they are looking into short-term increasing the amount of bonus stars players can gain. This will hopefully increase the number of players in medium and higher ranks and move veterans away from Rank 20. However, they don't want everyone to be a Legend player either, since this would devalue the ranking. New breakpoints are also an idea the Hearthstone team is considering. As far as winstreaks stopping at Rank 5 are concerned, the idea behind this is that they wanted players to get to Legend "legit"; this could change as well, though.
      Moving to the topic of Arena, Dean announced that they are thinking of moving it to Standard format. Moreover, they want to try decreasing the amount of commons you get, as well as the amount of neutral Classic and Basic cards (especially minions). Some of these changes for Arena are already ready to be added to the game they are just waiting for the right time to patch them in. In early February, top 100 rankings for Arena will be published - just like the Ranked season ones. These rankings will be calculated based on highest average wins per run basis with a minimum requirement of 30 runs.
      The guys had a few things to say about the current meta, too. Pirate Warrior represented 30% of the meta game near the launch of Mean Streets of Gadgetzan, while there were also a lot of Pirate Shamans and Rogues. Thankfully, these numbers have dropped as other decks (like Jade Druid and Reno decks) started surfacing. Pirate decks are slightly more popular than Team 5 would like and decks with the pirate package feel same-y. If this persists, they might take a look at Pirates. Hunters and Paladins are having a hard time at the moment because they can't keep up with the aggro pirate decks. Overall, the internal meta report shows a stability in the meta: there is only a 3% difference between the winrates of the top deck and the 11th best deck.
      Lastly, there was mention of the Wild format. Ben admitted that they could do some things better for Wild. For example, it's possible that Blizzard will encourage more Wild tournaments in the future. The upcoming rotation will be interesting since Wild will have more card sets than Standard. Wild is far from dead: it's just half as popular as Standard, although Ben hasn't looked in the numbers recently. Earlier in the stream, Ben also said that the team is considering two options to keep Standard fresh: either nerfing cards or just move them to Wild.
      Lastly, Ben and Dean talked about various other small topics like the possibility of reprinting cards (no actual answer given), more Hunter and Paladin talk, wording inconsistencies and rewriting old cards, how a healthy meta is defined and Team 5 itself.
