@ dimsum, Dr. Boom works awesome with Savage Roar, and if you manage to get him out on turn 5 with Innervate you get a huge advantage.

I think a problem you might run into would be having a good combination of ramp cards to get Venture Co out early, only to find its drawback making your remaining minion cards difficult to play. If you ramp out Fel Reaver early, at least it won't be hindering your ability to play out the rest of your hand.

Fel Reaver is for sure the MVP in the deck, Venture Co. doesn't do quite the same job since it slows down your other development so much, can stop you doing like Druid of the Claw + Savage Roar for lethal etc. If you don't have Reavers, then yeah you might just be in trouble, but at that point a couple of Arcane Golems might be the best choice. Mukla is great too but you probably don't have him either.

 

Boom over Leeroy, this isn't an OUTRIGHT Face Deck, it's super aggressive, but you're still trying to build a board, so Boom is much better for pressure than Leeroy.

Been running Loatheb over second Fel Reaver: helps protect your board for a savage roar next turn. Thoughts?

Is there room for an ironbeak owl in here to silence taunts and a fel reaver, if necessary? Perhaps for a druid of the saber?

Thanks Sottle, i just hit Leged with it. My best achievement until now was rank 3 with hunter before they nerfed the undertakers. Altough i'm pretty experienced with Druid (i played with different types of aggro druids for the past 4 seasons), this deck really rocks. Two days from rank 18 to 3 and another two from 3 to legend. Thank you again.

Nah, I think the 2 Silence is plenty. It's one more than a lot of Aggro decks play.

First impressions with this deck aren't good.  Every game I've played Fel Reaver I've lost to fatigue.  It's 8 health works against it allowing my opponents an extra turn to mill me before they can kill it.

If your Fel Reaver is living for multiple turns, you should just be winning the game, the rest of your deck doesn't matter. This deck has been incredibly successful for the last month or so, so its effectiveness isn't really in question at this point.

I have played maybe 75 games with this deck and have never been fatigued once! Remember you want to be attacking face most of the time with fel reaver. The highest rank I hit before this was 9.... I am at 6 and still going!

Hi I was wondering dust value wise what is more valuable in this deck. Fel Reaver or a 2nd Force of nature?

Fel Reaver is pretty crucial, I would say that. Often Savage Roar is enough to clutch out a game with this deck, you don't always go all the way through to the full combo.

Sottle, the deck is simply fantastic, I used to be stuck on rank 14 with my homemade decks, when I spotted this one and went immediately 6 ranks higher. Now a question. My deck is still incomplete, I don't have some cards (2nd Fel Reaver, 2nd Force of Nature, Shades of Naxxramas are the most important), but it's working. I often feel like 1 draw per turn is not enough though and I sometimes end shut down without any possibility to react. Would playing any draw minions or spells make any sense with this deck? If so, which ones would you recommend?

Nah, draw is always something that people jump to with aggro decks like this, but you don't really need it. You just need to be as clean as possible with your use of resources and make sure you stretch out your resources as efficiently as possible. If you're running out of stuff too often, it might just be the case that you're not being aggressive enough and therefore making the games last too long. Some of the cards you're missing are crucial for that consistent aggression though, Fel Reaver and Force.

Hey Sottle started playing your (complete) deck  and was thinking of argent squire (more board and combo potential )  or zombie chow (gives him health but more board combo potential) instead or leper gnome... what do you think?

 

Anyways thanks for posting and the short guide always like to try new droods (not that new... smile.png )

Hey Sottle great deck really fun to play! I was just thinking of argent squire or zombie chow (instead of leper gnome) for more board control and combo potential... Or is the dmg too important to finish quick ?

Nah, this is just a damage deck. Leper Gnome is for sure what you want. You should be prepared to fall behind on board come the mid to late-game and just be looking to deal the damage over the top to clutch it out in a lot of matchups.

Last season I did great with this deck.  I don't have shades so i use argent horse riders, which is okay.  But this season I am struggling to get out of rank 15, :( Any tips? What should i replace the Shades with

      Dave Kosak is here with a new Hearthside Chat to talk about Dungeon Runs. He also showcased a new legendary card from the new expansion!
      We've already talked about Dungeon Runs, one of the new features that Kobolds & Catacombs will bring. Lead Mission Designer Dave Kosak explains in this latest Hearthside Chat the design process behind Dungeon Runs.
      Dave presented some unique elements only present in Dungeon Runs. For example, there is a card you can pick called Cloak of Invisibility, which has a Passive effect of giving your minions permanent Stealth.
      He also gave some insight on the encounters. Some Dungeon Runs can have thematic encounters, like there's a band of Troggs or Trolls you will have to beat. As far as the Trolls are concerned, Battlecrier Jin'zo has a passive effect that is similar to Brann Bronzebeard, which you and him can both benefit from! Similarly, Spiritspeaker Azun's passive works like Baron Rivendare for both parties, while Voodoomaster Vex combines both of these passive effects!
      The narrator, that will be guiding you through your Dungeon Run, is King Togwaggle - the king of the Kobolds himself! He is also going to be an actual card available in the next expansion:

      Here's the official blog post with everything you need to know about Dungeon Runs:
      Blizzard Entertainment
      What’s a Dungeon Run?
      Dungeon Run is a new insanely fun, single-player “rogue-like” mode where you’ll face deadly encounters and collect incredible Treasures to build a deck worthy of a hero!
      When your Dungeon Run starts, you’ll choose a Hero and receive a starting deck consisting of 10 cards. You’ll use it to overcome eight encounters of increasing difficulty (chosen randomly from a huge pool of 48 possible encounters!) to clear the run.

      That initial deck might be enough to help you squeak by your first opponent, but you’ll need to get stronger if you hope to clear the whole run. Each time you defeat a Dungeon Run encounter, you’ll be given an opportunity to “level up” your Dungeon Run deck with themed sets of three cards appropriate to your class. Occasionally, you’ll also be able to pick from a selection of three incredibly powerful Treasure cards—non-collectible cards and abilities made just for this mode that are too blatantly overpowered to see normal play.
      You’ll need all that power—as well as your wits—because these encounters can be fiendishly difficult. Victory is not assured, and each encounter has its own unique perils. If one of them gets the better of you, defeat is permanent, so you’ll have to start a different run with a whole new deck!
      If you manage to complete a full Dungeon Run with each of the nine Classes—no mean feat!—you’ll add the Candle King card back to your collection.

      In this article, we are covering two new cards: Temporus, a Priest legendary minion, and Benevolent Djinn, a Paladin common minion.
      Benevolent Djinn was revealed earlier today by Thai player Anothersayoran1. The name of the card was officially confirmed by Puffin.

      Image by Hearthpwn.
      It is difficult to judge this card without seeing it in action. It’s comparable to Friendly Bartender: while the Djinn heals for more, its 2 attack value is a bit mediocre for a 3-mana minion. Shaman’s Hot Spring Guardian is slightly better, since it has Taunt and a targeted heal effect. Then again, Djinn also acts like a Taunt, in the sense that your opponent probably has to spend early resources to remove its powerful effect. Both cards, though, are beaten by Tar Creeper.
      This make the Djinn a great anti-aggro tool. Additionally, it synergises well with Blackguard and its Elemental tribe means that maybe we’ll get to see an Elemental Paladin. This is definitely a powerful Arena card. But can it secure a spot in constructed mode? It looks difficult, since Paladin already has some great 3-mana minions.

      This intriguing minion was revealed by Eurogamer. Its sister site, Metabomb, sat down with Peter Whalen and Ben Thompson to talk about this card. Both developers think that Temporus can be run in either the classic OTK Priest (Divine Spirit + Inner Fire) or in two new versions of Dragon Priest: a more midrange one and an OTK one with Malygos. 
      It would be interesting to see what it's interaction is going to be with Brann Bronzebeard. Temporus is a "high risk, high reward" card and, even if you don't like it or it turns out to be bad, you'd still have to commend its design.

      The 2016 Hearthstone World Champion revealed this rare Druid card.
      Grizzled Guardian was unveiled on Pavel's YouTube channel. It's a rare Druid Beast, that costs 8 mana and has 3 attack and 5 health. It has Taunt and Deathrattle: "Recruit 2 minions that cost (4) or less". Pavel's video is in Russian, but you can enable accurate English subtitles to see what the World Champion has to say about that card.
      After watching Pavel's video, I am convinced that Grizzled Guardian isn't as bad as it looks at first sight. Sure, its stats are garbage, but you should also factor in the stats of the minions it pulls from your deck when it dies. Still, it's hard to see it fit into the current meta. Perhaps, it can see play when the Year of the Kraken sets rotate out of Standard. It also weakens the 8-mana slot for Evolve and similar effect.
      What's your opinion on Grizzled Veteran? As always, all the cards of the new expansion can be found in our Kobolds & Catacombs hub.
      PS: Turns out it's not Hogger 3.0 :(

      The newest Legendary Shaman minion has me shaking in my boots. Is this the card that will put Elemental Shaman over the top?
      Chinese Hearthstone streamer Snowkiss has revealed the Legendary Shaman minion from K&C. This bad boy appears to pack quite the punch - my mind is already racing with potential combos and synergies for Grumble, World Shaker:

      Card image courtesy of Hearthpwn.com
      Elementals have plenty of powerful Battlecry triggers which Grumble could play for a second time. Kalimos, Primal Lord, Servant of Kalimos, Blazecaller, and Jade Spirit immediately come to mind as potent synergies for the shaker of worlds. Grumble could also be used to double down of Jade cards such as Jade Chieftain and Aya Blackpaw, or could even be used to recycle the Battlecry triggers of the old gods. All of this on a 7/7 for 6 mana? Sign me up!
      Is this the card that Elemental Shaman has been waiting for? Let us know what you think about Grumble in the comment section, and check out our Kobolds and Catacombs hub for more information on the upcoming set.

      The second of three Unidentified Magic Items to be revealed from Kobolds and Catacombs, will Unidentified Maul be a smashing success on the ladder?
      Kripparrian revealed the second of three Unidentified Magic Items in Kobolds and Catacombs today on his Twitter accounter, Unidentifed Maul:

      A Paladin Weapon, Unidentified Maul begins each game with an unknown effect and will become "identified" upon drawing the card from your deck. The weapon will always be a 3 mana 2/2, but will be randomly bestowed with one of the four following effects when drawn:

      A couple of the potential modes on this card are very enticing. Two Silver Hand Recruits and a 2/2 weapon for 3 mana is a screaming deal, and the other three modes offer some serious value if you're already ahead on board. Given that three of the four potential modes on Unidentified Maul aren't very good when you're behind, I doubt this card will slot in as an instant replacement for Rallying Blade. Unidentified Maul could end up seeing play in token-based strategies, as granting +1 Attack or Divine Shield to a wide board of minions drawn from Small-Time Recruits is nothing to shake a hammer at.
      Will the random nature of Unidentified Maul be its downfall, or will its synergies with token strategies enable it to see some play on the ladder? Let us know what you think in the comments, and be sure to check out our Kobolds and Catacombs hub for more information on the upcoming set.
