Hearthstone Legendary Druid Aggro/Rush LoE

40 posts in this topic

Does Sottle even play with these decks before posting them? This is yet another aggro deck that is completely dependent on getting lucky with your draws. And there's no draw power AT ALL so if you don't get a lucky break at the very beginning you're screwed.

Fel Reaver is not "misunderstood," it's trash. Guaranteed burn of at least 9 cards if its played without Innervate. About a third of your deck is just gone. In my case it seems to be a guaranteed way to lose both Force of Natures.

Do you post these crappy decks just to make it easier for you to win when you play against them?

Look at the opening paragraph, it says that sottie didn't make this deck himself.

Now a few paragraphs down, Sottie explains the strengths of Fel Reaver in this deck. And his points are valid. I think this may be a point of you just misplaying this deck a bit.​

I'm not sure how much did Sottle play with it, you should check him on Twitch if that bothers you. One thing i can tell you for sure, i reached legend with this deck quite easily. Do not expect for a deck to play by itself, you need to learn how to do it properly and yea, play alot smile.png

Yes, he does play with them. This deck was used by many people to reach legend with and has been marked by Tempo Storm as tier 1 deck.

 

You don't care about burning your cards because you will usually burn useless cards such as shredder, raptor or even your mum (yes, absolutely useless). You just go face, it deals 8 damage multiple times and can easily win you the game. Just go face.

 

Do you play the game just to make it easier for us to win?

It depends on your specific matchup. Generally, if you want to kill a minion and it is doable by using hore power, it is better to use it instead of using Keeper.

This deck is top notch on ladder right now, but the shade/arcane golem kindy off the plase.
 May an argent horserider b better replasement 4 the shade than arcane golem? This one is really hard 2 deal with, and it removes annoying 3/2 minions and stays alive. huh.png

Well i just hit legendary rank with this dek. My win rate with this one was jst spectacular-whole legend run took only about 100 games biggrin.png(from 5 2 legend) . I favor this one against midrange secret paly (not anty agro+LOE version), entomb priest, tempo mage(jst a bit), and reno/lock/din etc, and even control warrior!! And those decks are actualy is the whole ladder right now. 

This deck considered as a tier 2 deck by manakost, but  addition of  Mounted Raptor and argent horse riders instead off shades really pushes its win rate far forward.

I'm actualy thinking about swaping leper gnome 4 worgen, becase this one can stay stealthed 4 a long time until it will find 3/2 creature 2 kill-it ph34r.png cant b pinged down, cant b killed with haunted creeper, paladin recruter etc. as  Druid of the Saber doesph34r.png  and this stealth mechanik can really catch by surprise our opponent and allow us 2 trade as wee want. This ninja team works soo well.

I'm using this deck as well and am stuck around tier 4-5. May I ask how many argents are you using? Also do you have any other tips not mentioned in the article? Thanks!

I'm using only 1 argent instead of a shade (and worgens instead leper gnomes). 

But playing this deck is actually preatty deamn tough. Against agro decks i like 2 build a board, trade alot and i'm basikly playing this as midrange deck: removing oponents threat, plaing around board clears. This deck thou can also smork ur opponent preatty damn fast, so u should sometimes take a risc and push extra face damage if u ahead on tempo(trading tempo 4 face damage). This deck should carry you 2 the legend if ladder isn't infested with d*mn zoo, dragon priest and new miracle rogues.

  U should probably check some vods with this deck really 2 emprove ur performance.

Take a look at this one: 

 

Kolento really pushes this deck 2 the limit, and he explains alot of his plays.

I've been playing for a couple of years, honestly.  I don't understand this deck. I've watched videos, talked to people, etc...and I just hover around 15 - 12 with this thing.  I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong at this point.  It -seems- good, but I don't know, it just gets shut down a lot by other aggro decks.

Aggro is just hard to play well. You will need to practice a lot with it. Could be also unfavourable matchups (although the meta is favourable to some extent). You could also try watching streams, but not really sure when the videos didn't help you much.

Ok so i have to say this deck type is dead...just plain dead! Fel reaver is about useless for starters. I get about 1 shot with him per game maybe but i always lose at least 6 to 9 cards in the process of him dying the turn after i summoned him so i dont even get to use him. Also the rush thing is great if the person you are playing either doesnt have spells or does not have any taunts so yeah every other deck kills this. Now i admit i thought this deck was great last season i mean i got to rank 9 last season so yknow it did work. But this season i have lost 25 games in a row and gone down to freakin rank 20 i mean that is just a terrible deck. No drawability, No healing, No winning its as simple as that.  And honestly the deck was supposed to get me to legendary last season and i didnt even get close. Now im sorry but i consider that the site lying to my face. Here are the classes i never beat: Priest, Warlock, Paladin, and Druid...guess what... THATS ALL THE CLASSES EVERYONE ELSE IS IN RANKED!!! Most useless thing ever. I mean every time EVERY TIME i summon Fel reaver turn 1 agains warlock they use the spell where at the start of their next turn he dies so i get one hit ONE FREAKIN HIT! Unless they send in the freakin 1/3 taunt for 1 mana cost then i get nothing and lose 6 cards!

So i have tried and tried and tried and watched the video you gave me over and over again and i still cant get past rank 19 its just no matter how good a hand i get EVERYONE instakills everything I don't know what to do I am in such a rage cause this is pure stupidity I SHOULD NOT be having these problems. The biggest problem is no matter how fast i get someone down to 14 or less health they always have like 25 in healing in there hand or like 8 in healing and 13 in damage spells or something stupid like that. I just had a mage use 6 spells at 8 mana while i had just thrown out Fel reaver and then the final spell was entomb. I mean really stupid crap that like i mean what are you even supposed to do against decks like that. They are invicible at rank 19 RANK 19 that doesn't make any sense everyone at my rank should suck up till i get to like rank 10 then they should be equal with me not gods compared to me at rank 19. Please someone tell me what i'm doing wrong!

A MAGE at 8 Mana uses 6 spells, and one of them is ENTOMB? This means he had to get this via Spellslinger. Plus, there need to be several 1 Mana spells included (and even that requires that he had a sorcerer's apprentice out), probably, in this case some spare parts he generated earlier (so you should know he had those cheap spells). I would say that this is a) a very rare scenario and b ) the Fel Reaver was probably a misplay in that situation.

Do people still can't get around the fell reaver thing? Jesus.

 

It is 100% irrelevant that they burned you any number of cards from your deck if they don't fatigue you, other than the fact that they know you don't have them in hand(which admittedly can be awkward at times, but never so much so that you regret playing an 8/8 for 5 mana).

True it was rare I have not seen that happen often usually it is 2-4 spells but the point is for some reason I always get that kind of unlucky. I suppose i should wait till they have less cards in their hand than me before i play fel reaver but I never get that because they always have at least 4-6 more cards in their hand than me even though they have used cards every turn to counter everything I do. I loved this deck last season even though I only got to rank 9 and I was supposed to get to legendary with it. I will say I don't have all the legendaries that are part of this deck because I don't have much money and have had to get all my adventures via gold. I have half of naxxramas and all of the newest adventure but i havent even started on the dragon one. The sad thing is if that is the main problem and the only reason i don't win then this game is really really pay to win dependent and that is just depressing. Now don't get me wrong if i had money I would instantly get all the adventures like they were going out of style! At any rate can anyone suggest something I can do to improve what I have going. Cause I need to stop losing cause of lucky draws on the other side. Luck cannot be allowed to dictate over skill and a well made deck.

rd or something like that c) because you could have happen to you what happened to me. I threw out fel reaver turn 3 against a paladin and he threw out a card that made fel reaver an 1/8 creatures instead of an 8/8 creature. Fel Reaver was made the death of my deck in an instant!

what it said was the fact that fel reaver burns cards is incredibly relevant! because a) you could burn all the good cards needed to keep him alive or maybe clear taunt cards or things like that! b) Fel reaver can never ever beat a deck by himself no creature can there are too many ways to stop him or freeze him or deal damage to him equal to his atk and or something like that

      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.

      Ben Brode was active on the official forums and on social media these past few days and he had a lot of interesting things to say about various hot topics. Most notably, he noted that it's possible that additional Basic and Classic set cards may be nerfed or rotated out of Standard in the future.
      You probably remember that with the release of the Standard format, something less than a year ago, 12 Basic and Classic cards were nerfed. Now, Game Director Ben Brode revealed that more Basic & Classic card nerfs can happen or at least they may be rotated out of Standard. The reasoning behind this is that the team wants to keep a fresh feeling in Standard and they don't want to see the same core cards appear too frequently. That's why they are also not considering buffing underused vanilla cards, since Basic and Classic cards are already being used a lot and they want new sets to be more impactful.
      Ben Brode
      + Show- Hide The goal with Standard is to keep the meta fresh for each yearly rotation. There are some benefits to keeping Basic and Classic cards in Standard: Returning players have an entry-point to the new format, and new players experience classics like "Hogger" and "Arcane Missiles" that are iconic and great introductions to the game. People take breaks from Hearthstone, and being able to jump right back in with a few cards you already own and understand makes that experience a lot better. That upside has a real downside in working directly against the big goal for Standard. It needs to feel different each year, and if Basic and Classic cards are still appearing in large densities year after year, we will not be achieving our goals for Standard.
      We knew we weren't going to get there when the Year of the Kraken began, so we nerfed 12 basic/classic cards, to put more of the weight of the meta into the rotating sets. We always knew we'd have to watch the meta to see if any future changes would be needed when we got ready for the next year of Standard. If things are looking like they are going to be too same-y for that next year, we could see more nerfs, or we might rotate some additional classic cards to Wild, like we did with Old Murk Eye. No matter what, we're committed to making Standard fresh and exciting each new year. (source)
       
       
      Are you guys considering, besides nerfs, implementing buffs for underused vanilla cards?
      Given the goal of Standard is to keep the game fresh each year, it's important to keep a lot of the power of the cards in the expansions, and not in the basic and classic sets. It's not clear what that balance of power should look like (is it ~10 cards from the basic and classic sets on average?), but we're currently skewed so high towards basic and classic cards in decks, that we are at high risk for 'samey-ness' as the years change in Standard. Buffing Basic/Classic cards *increases* that risk. If the goal is to get more cool cards into the meta, just releasing awesome new cards in expansions should make an impact there, and still keep Standard fresh. (source)
      Obviously, this comment caused a lot of reactions and Ben took to Reddit (specifically this thread) and Twitter, where he answered various questions. A brief summary of his responses is that the Basic set is currently the most powerful in the game (source), while the team intends to keep the vanilla set unchanged (the term used was 'evergreen' - source). Ben repeated that the team's intention behind any future Basic and Classic card nerfs or changes is to keep Standard format fresh and "less same-y". A difficult question was posed to the community: would they prefer the affected vanilla cards to be nerfed, rotated out of Standard format or remain as they are, even if it results in a staler meta?
      On the same Reddit thread, Brode also talked about why the Charge nerf was necessary due to the Grimy Goons synergy and how new/F2P players are currently still able to reach Legend rank - something that he expects to keep happening in the future as well.
      Ben Brode
      + Show- Hide [...] We nerfed Charge (the spell) because we knew the upcoming Grimy Goons mechanic in combination with Enraged Worgen and Charge was not really fair or fun. There have always been F2P players at Legend, and there have continued to be since that change. (source) Ben Brode
      + Show- Hide We did this in 2016 when we nerfed 12 classic cards and it made a huge difference in how much the meta was able to change with the release of Old Gods (instead of just continuing to be Druid Combo). New players were able to reach legend without spending money after that change, and I expect that will be continue to be true if we change a few more cards in 2017. (source) On a somewhat relevant topic, with the end of the Year of the Kraken the end of Reno Jackson is also approaching. Ben excluded the possibility of this game-changing card making it into the Classic set - once again the reason being "keeping the meta fresh".
      Placeholder for tweet 817625802116214784 For consistency's sake, I've also included two Brode blue posts from last week. In the first one, he talks about the new player experience and how it still needs more work. For example. the climb from the introductory quests to actually playing the game feels steep, while getting into Ranked is also difficult. However, for their first games new players actually play in a seperate matchmaking pool designed to match new players with each other. There has also been a 15% increase in new player winrates on Casual.
      Ben Brode
      + Show- Hide Hey there! We agree that the new player experience needs more work. We've been tweaking it for years and have seen significant increases in retention among new players since launch. Most new players start playing against the AI and then take on other players in Casual. The Casual matchmaker has gone through a lot of iteration and new player winrates have increased by ~15%.
      Ranked is a different story. Ranked is becoming more difficult for new players over time. I spoke about some of the challenges we are currently facing with our ladder system before I left for paternity leave here: https://www.reddit.com/r/hearthstone/comments/58pxgt/ben_brode_confirms_the_2_game_win_streak_is_not/
      Something you may not realize is that new players actually play in a seperate matchmaking pool for their first several sessions. In Casual, we match them entirely against other brand new players with similarly-sized collections.
      That all said, we think the introductory missions up through Illidan feel pretty good, and after that it still feels like a bit of a cliff. It's definitely something we're aware of. Thanks for your feedback, and for the feedback of everyone else who's been chiming in on this over the last few months.
      (source) Lastly, Ben made an interesting post about another community hot topic: the ladder system.
      Ben Brode
      + Show- Hide [...] We have been discussing the ladder system a lot recently - we're not 100% happy with it.
      Here are some things we are currently discussing:
      Rank 18 players are higher ranked than 50% of HS players. That number doesn't make you feel like you are in the top 50%, and that's a missed opportunity. We try and counter this by telling you all over the place what the mapping is to the rest of the population, but it'd be better if expectations and reality matched here.
      We've received feedback that the last-minute jostling for high Legend ranks at the end of a season doesn't feel all that great.
      We've received feedback that the ladder can feel like a grind.
      We are reanalyzing the number of ranks, the number of stars per rank, the number of bonus stars given out at the start of the season, and other parts of the system.
      We are developing simulation systems that let us predict what changes to the ladder would do to the population curve. If we inflate too many stars, the whole population ends up in the Legend bucket and while that might feel great for a single month, the entire system falls apart eventually. People who played waaaay back may remember when "3-star master" was the pinnacle of achievement, and it meant nothing because so many people ended up in that bucket. With better simulation tools, we are planning on trying a lot of crazy things. Iteration is important in design, and getting the tools to iterate quickly is very important.
      Something I want to emphasize is that while I think we can improve the ladder, the metric for that improvement isn't necessarily any one player's individual rank increasing. Players want the better rewards (and prestige) associated with high ranks, or the Legend card back, so any change we make that increases the chances of those are likely to be perceived as "good", at least for the short term. But part of what makes the ranked ladder compelling is that exists to rank players. If you want to see how you stack up, ranked is the place to do it. So while some inflation might improve the experience, we need to be careful and make sure we end up with a system that makes people feel rewarded for increases in personal skill or for finding a new deck that breaks the meta.

      Since I talk like an ogre I can as well practice my 3D skills and play around with the hearthstone logo.  Here is a quick render I made this morning.  Maybe I will do some more, wallpaper, t-shirt print or other stuff... I don't know

      I will probably also just play some Hearthstone for myself.  If I am better I will maybe do a "silent" stream tonight! :-D Or at least keep the conversation to a minimum.

      See you around guys and have a good day!
