What do you think Sottle, which deck is more powerful right now: Fast Druid or Token Druid?

In my honest opinion it depends what your up against in ladder if you're finding more control I would say fast is better, but if you're coming up against aggro or board flooding decks then token is better. Control will out value you if it goes on too long but I only lost a couple of games with token mainly due to miss plays against midrange or face hunter.

I don't like Gormok at all.

I can almost never answer this question directly, it really depends on what you're up against, and it's way too early in a developing meta to know for sure.

I'm enjoying playing this deck. I see some people running savage combatants in it too. What are your thoughts on putting two combatants in place of the shredders? I'm hesitant to do it, but it seems like it might be ok.

The big problem with Combatant is that it dies miserably to Shredder if they come up against each other, Combatant is more of a 6 Mana play to me, not something that competes with Shredder.

Sottle, am grinding out for the first wing of Naxxramas but have been running this deck with a Lowly Squire and an Argent Squire in place of the Haunted Creepers. I know they are crucial components of the early game for this deck but have been getting pretty good results so far when the matchups have been favourable.

 

Any better suggestions for replacement cards while I'm waiting to get the HCs?

Greetings, been using this deck for quite some time now. Currently rank 3 and facing alot of secret paladins, control warriors, and patron warriors. Switched one azure drake and one teacher for a bgh and kezan mystic wich increased my winrate against secret paladin. Still having trouble with the other 2 as i feel like this deck is quite bad against them. Should I just forget about token druid and start playing fast?

Yeah Secret Paladin is just a strong matchup against Druids, it happens. I honestly don't think Kezan Mystic really even does anything in the matchup, stealing an individual secret from them is just such low value.

Warriors you should be doing fine against, but you can bring in more weapon destruction if you really want to take them apart.

Hello there,

 

Do you think it's a good idea to replace 1 Haunted Creeper by Bloodmage Thalnos (Swipe or Living root combo) ?

Hi, I've had a weird expirience playing this deck so far. Actually, I've been far more succesful with the exact decklist, but replaced 2x violet teacher with 2x savage combatant. I know it strays from token idea, but I'd like to hear your thoughts about it. Reached rank 5 with that, I think I could have gone higher but I guess I was satisfied with my end of the season golden epic ^^. It struggles a bit against handlocks and secret paladins, but sometimes I can manage to rush both down. What do you think?

If you're cutting the Teachers for Combatants then you're moving further towards the Aggro Druid list, maybe you should try that out?

Is it better to replase 2xPiloted Shredder with 2xHarvest Golem since we lack of 3-drops?

If I thought it was better, I would have put it in the deck, so obviously no. Turn 3 is often your Innervate turn with this deck, or you play a 2-drop and use Living Roots, or Roots + Power of the Wild etc.

But you wrote:

"Also markedly different from most Druid decks is your usage of Innervate. In most decks, Innervate is best used early, as it tails off in power quickly as the game progresses. However, in this deck, since you play enough early minions to take the board in the early-game anyway, Innervate is better saved to activate an early Ancient of Lore or Dr. Boom, or for combining with Violet Teacher to create huge board states."

 

So we should probably keep Innervate for turn 4-5?

 

And should we keep PotW to buff 3+ minions or we are free to use it even like 3\2 drop? Cause if only first is accepteble, if oponent will chose to kill our second drop, we still don't have turn 3.

 

Asking cause often don't have good turn 3 play, especially if starting first. Maybe expanding this moment in guide will make it more clear to players like me.

I mean, that's consistent right? I'm saying you don't use it straight away to Innervate a 4-drop like you often do in Midrange Druid, you save it to fill the curve on a later turn.

 

PotW is fine to use as a 3/2 if you have no other play, but ideally you should be using it to buff Teacher, Creeper Tokens, Living Roots etc.

Hi Sottle

Let's say I haven't Ancient of Lore, so is Gadzetan Auctioneer good replacement? Or is there some better replacement like Thalnos or Malygos becouse of number of spells in this deck?

Gadgetzan Auctioneer wouldn't be good enough here. A Knife Juggler or a second FoN could be used instead. If you face a lot of control, you can maybe use Cenarius.

Hello, how about Nerubian egg in this deck?

Not enough ways to pop it without using removals. I wouldn't use it.

      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.
