[Archived] Hearthstone Legendary Druid Control Deck

15 posts in this topic

Solid deck but lacks big minion removals. Adding big game hunter to the deck could solve the problem.

Hey, Ssn.

Big Game Hunter is an outstanding card and probably the best solution to all the fatties out there, however including them in the deck should be a decision every player should make based on their experience of the meta game environment.

If you are constantly matched up against control decks with Ragnaros, Giants or other fat minions, you should definitely swap in one or even two Big Game Hunters and they will improve your deck.

I kinda feel this deck, when I play it atleast, that I rarely get an early play. On paper I feel like there is a fine amount of early minions at 2/3 mana but I feel like I don't draw them in games? (No I have not just played one game with this deck) I have kinda thought about adding some early minions at the expense of some of the later ones like DW but I don't know. Maybe I just need to get used to it.

I'm having excellent success in the early ladder stages (L20), winning eight of nine so far. Almost never have a problem getting an early play, but I usually mulligan everything above a three. I make about one mistake per game, but this deck so far has let me overcome almost every one.

 

On the subject of mulligans, there's a new blue post. In the beta, your mulligans were destroyed. Now, your new cards are drawn, then your mulligans are shuffled back into the deck. I mulligan without hesitation.

 

I was getting crushed by hunters, which is why I switched to this. Now I salivate when facing one.

 

Nice work, great deck.

Which card(s) would you consider swapping out?

The text description says the core strategy is based partly on the Twilight Drake, but that card is not in the deck.

You are correct. Twilight Drakes have indeed been swapped out in order to make room for an additional end game Legendary and one Ancient of War. Will be corrected soon. Thanks for pointing it out.

Hello,

 

Can we get a new update of this deck ?

Naxxramas is out so i guess there can be some cards swaped, i am not very sure which card to remove and add for the moment the experiment i did have a very bad curve, so i hope an expert from IcyVeins can take care of it.

 

Thanks,

CurseOfDeath

I'm not a fan of Bloodmage Thalnos. The +1 to spell damage is nice if you can keep it on the board long enough to make it useful. It has no board presence. You can always trust that it will be destroyed the very next turn your opponent gets. Essentially, you end up using it for it's drawing power, which I feel would be better served by Loot Hoarder, Novice Engineer or Acolyte of Pain. Loot hoarder's attack gives it a little removal power and Acolyte of Pain guarantees at least one card draw, more if you can keep it alive long enough.

 

I use Nat Pagle, instead. I like it a lot better. It holds a little more board presence. And paired with Mark of the Wild, you have a shielded 2/6 at early stages.

 

Also for this deck, I recommend Echoing Ooze. When paired with Mark of the Wild or Mark of Nature, you can create 2 very effective taunts for the price of one.

Bloodmage Thalnos is designed so that you can play it on the same turn as a spell that gets +1 damage, since Thalnos is cheap to play (only costs 2 mana). So in turn 6 (for example) you can use Thalnos + swipe for 5 damage to one minion (probably enough to kill) and 2 to all other enemies, destroying an aggro deck's board setup.

 

The draw-card-deathrattle is there because a minion that costs 2 mana can easily be taken out, so you also gain an extra card when Thalnos (inevitably) dies, but not before it has boosted your spell damage the turn you played it. This makes it a better option than an alternative cheap spell-booster such as kobold geomancer because it lets you replace the card you lost by drawing a new card (you don't lose card advantage). Other low-mana spell boosters like geomancer are also easy to kill but give you nothing when they die.

 

Note: Thalnos ISN'T meant to be played early on in the game, since it won't get a chance to boost your spell damage (you don't have enough mana crystals in the early game to play Thalnos along with a boosted spell), so it's a wasted minion.

      YouTuber, Disguised Toast, is never far from the front of Hearthstone science, and his latest video is spectacular. This video investigates the strange interactions caused by Weasel Tunneler's Deathrattle.
      Weasel Tunneler's Deathrattle seems simple enough, it reads: Shuffle this minion into your opponent's deck. However, when tested by Disguised Toast, it turns out that even this simple looking text can result in rather odd results. The ordering of other Deathrattles on the board, and effects by other cards on Deathrattles is what makes it so unpredictable. Take a look for yourself!
      The fact your deck displays as full, no matter how many cards left, is probably the strangest interaction of all. Even Toast doesn't  attempt to describe how that one happens.

      Blizzard have updated the breakdown of the amount each gang's classes are being played.
      On their Gadgetzan page, there is an infographic showing who controls the town of Gadgetzan today. The percentages are worked out by how often each class is being used. Even with the huge amount of Pirate Warrior on ladder at the moment, the Grimy Goons are unable to control the city! That honour goes, currently, to the Kabal. With people having success with Reno Warlock AND Reno Priest, it will be fun to see if they hold that position in the coming days.

      So I got a lot of jade cards for druid and neutral in the 15-20 packs I've opened, and I wanted to make a jade druid deck, right? But I'm poor, so I look up "Jade Druid Budget Deck". I find one on this site with the following deck list:
       
      2x Innervate 2x Jade Idol MSG 2x Living Roots TGT 2x Raven Idol LoE 2x Wild Growth 2x Wrath 2x Feral Rage TOG 2x Jade Blossom MSG 2x Swipe 2x Nourish 2x Jade Behemoth MSG 2x Jade Spirit MSG 2x Azure Drake 2x Gadgetzan Auctioneer 2x Arcane Giant Kara But I don't have Raven Idol. Or nourish, though I can just craft that since it's in classic. So can anyone suggest an option for replacing the raven idols? I don't want to get all of League of Explorers just to play with it for a month then watch it turn to dust so I can craft other cards for decks in standard. I have one branch, but that's it. I was thinking maybe 1 jeweled scarab, though I know that card is frowned upon for reasons I've never been made aware of, for flexibility, and a loot hoarder for pure draw.
