Druid Cards Neutral Cards

1.1. Mana Curve


2. Strategy

Our Mid Budget Control "Ramp Up" Druid Deck focuses on sacrificing early game for Mana acceleration in order to get to the late game faster. The term "Ramp" comes from Magic: The Gathering and it essentially refers to a play style relying on Mana acceleration.

As already mentioned, "Ramp" Druids rely on the Mana acceleration provided by Innervate and/or Wild Growth in order to reach the late game faster. Since the deck offers no early pressure, you will rely on defensive play through out early game and attempt to control the board with Wrath, Keeper of the Grove, and Swipe.

Playing an early Sen'jin Shieldmasta, Chillwind Yeti, or even a Druid of the Claw with Wild Growth or Innervate can easily counter any aggressive opponent. You should always attempt to use your Innervate efficiently, which means holding on to it until you can play a high value minion or removal such as Swipe in order to counter your opponent's pressure or setting up your own board.

Most of your minions have Taunt, however when under immense pressure, you can always use Mark of the Wild and turn your Keeper of the Grove, Chillwind Yeti, or any other minion without Taunt into an excellent Taunter. Mark of the Wild can be used aggressively, however keep in mind that if your opponent manages to take the buffed minion out with a single spell, you will give them card advantage.

Speaking of card advantage, most of your minions have a lot of value and when played earlier thanks to the Mana acceleration provided by Wild Growth or Innervate, as they will often force your opponent to dedicate more than 1 card in order to deal with them.

Ancient of Lore can provide necessary healing when running low on health, however in most situations you will use it to draw cards, create card advantage, and pull ahead of your opponent.

Ancient of War should always be played as a Taunter, however keep in mind that your deck offers many excellent targets for The Black Knight, which is why you should always play it carefully and attempt to lure out The Black Knight with another taunter such as Sen'jin Shieldmasta or Druid of the Claw.

Ragnaros the Firelord is an amazing finisher and will always make a huge impact on the board. You should always consider the possibility of a Faceless Manipulator + Big Game Hunter combo and what your possible responses will be if that happens, before it ruins your game.

2.1. Synergies and Combinations

Wild Growth provides Mana acceleration, which allows you to reach the late game faster and play minions with much higher value earlier.

Mark of the Wild will turn any minion without Taunt in to an excellent Taunter, and it can potentially be used on an opponent's minion in order to make it a suitable target for your Big Game Hunter.

2.2. Mulligan / Starting Hand

You should always mulligan for an Innervate or Wild Growth. Mana acceleration is the key in most match-ups and you should always attempt to get it in your starting hand.

Against aggressive decks you should mulligan for an Innervate or decent early game removal. Keeper of the Grove, Wrath, and Swipe will often prove to be essential against minion-heavy aggressive decks.

2.3. Card Swaps

Choosing which cards to replace always depends on the meta game, however in most situations you will be going after additional healing that can be provided by Earthen Ring Farseer or Healing Touch.
