Greetings Sottle. I don´t have Cenarius :´( but I have a Malorne, is that one too bad for this ramp deck? should I just disenchant it? I also have dr. Boom, Ysera,Alex, Ragnar, etc. I don´t know which card should take Cenarius place. I also don´t have ancients of war. Should I replace them with Ancient Protectors? or should I just wait and save some dust

Would Grove Tender be an option instead of Druid of the Flame? For the option of either more card draw or mana? Or does it help the opponent too much? Thank you!

A replacement for 1 Ancient of War? Loatheb? Dr Boom?

I have only one as well and I use Sunwalker in its place. You can also use other late-game cards.

wanna know what's ur guys thoughts on replacing Senjin Shieldmaster with Arcane nullifier x21. As it will force minon trades and cant be trageted by spell removals.

The one attack often decides whether the opponent's minion will die or not. Let's take for example Shredder. The Shredder can double-trade into Arcane Nullifier, then both die, but Shredder actually drops a 2-drop.

Now, Shredder is against Sen'jin. Shredder trades into Sen'jin, dies and drops a 2-drop, which will be used to finally kill the Sen'jin - the board is neutral now,as opposed to losing when you play Arcane Nullifier.

Ah okie that's true so sengin is efficient in trades but what's I'm finiding is ppl uusually use the removal like preists use shadow word pain, or aggro shsmans just use crackle or lava burst ,,hunters are seonv the beast thibgy.

buy I guess then the purpose is also to get these removals used on a lower bali taget like sengin yes?

so ur anci er nts are safe journey

 

would that be a right assumption or does the x21 look like a better choose here

If you play against aggro, you want minions to tank that damage instead of you. Also, Sen'jin should take the damage as he is one of the less important cards in your deck.

I've played 10 games so far with this deck and lost all 10. And how do you even use Kel Thuzad when it is an 8 value cards and most jerks have answers to every minion and your board is almost always empty with this deck?

"However, Innervating the Spider Tank on Turn 1". Spider Tank should probably be Druid of the Flame, with the 2/5 choice. Or a discussion of which choice to make.

Ysera is great, you can play that instead no problem. If you don't have the Wars just play Sunwalkers.

 

To help my fellow budget players here is the list of sub card that you can use and must have card.

 

Must have card (Dust it and play the adventure) dont feel regret if you get one in a pack bec it will serve you worth when farming with a weak druid deck

Druid of the claw

keeper of the grove

wrath

kel thuzad

emperor thaurissan

sludge belcher

 

Sub card

ancient lore = azure drake

ancient of war = ironbark protector

Darnassus aspirant = zombie chow

sylvannas = sunwalker

living root = iron claw

cenarius = sunwalker

 

right now i got 90% of whats on the list of sottle without spending any real money and little dust on important common card bec of this sub card and luck of getting those keycard in a boosters

Hello Sottle Is there are place for Aviana in this deck and is she still a relevant legendary card? 

 

Was there a time when Aviana was relevant?

Aviana is technically a 10-Drop. Playing her on turn 9 is a waste of mana, since you can't play anything else on that turn without an innervate or a coin in your hand and you have a "weak" body on the board for this stage of the game. So since she will be cleaned straight away for most of the time, you need to profit in the turn you play her. And in my opionion, there are very few situations you can make up for her high cost, because as ramp druid, you will use your innervates and the coin in the early game to gain board control and advantage.

I'm having HUGE trouble winning games with this deck. I'm dropping ranks like a golddigger. this and freeze mage (and miracle rogue which is not viable anymore #neverforget) are the only decks I enjoy playing. It's not like I'm doing anything wrong but most of the times I have a crappy hand and I get overwhelmed by enemy minions by the time I'm able to place only one and then they just use a spell to clear him from the board. Can anyone please help me?!

Why would you prefer so many minions with Taunt here? there are almost no fragile minions to protect and if the opponent goes for the hero, he loses board control anyway.

 

This deck will more likely run out of cards than mana, so using 2x3 mana gaining cards might be overkill. Wrath and Ancient of Lore are absolutely a must to get cards, and perhaps swap Wild Growths for Starfire..

      We take a look back on the first week of the KFT metagame to share everything you can do to dominate the next one.
      With the first week of Knights of the Frozen Throne behind us we are just now starting to glimpse what the upcoming meta has in store for us. It’s still far too early to claim that all the new decks and archetypes have been finely tuned, but we have learned a lot from our first week with the new cards in KFT.
      The first change we encountered in the new meta was the dominance of the dedicated control deck. Towards the end of the Un’Goro metagame the most dominant decks were almost entirely aggressive or midrange in nature, yet nearly all of the most played decks from the first week of KFT have been controlling. Everybody was very excited to try the new Death Knight cards, and since these cards have high mana costs they tended to end up in naturally controlling or midrange decks.
      Once it became obvious that nearly every deck on the ladder was big and greedy, the next few days became a battle to become even bigger and greedier. At one point while watching Dog’s stream I saw him put N'Zoth into his Control Mage deck with only two Deathrattle cards in the entire deck (Pyros and the Frozen Champions from Sindragosa) to get back from N’Zoth’s battlecry! Talk about greedy.
      As fun as it was to have a Control-dominated meta for the first few days of KFT, this kind of greed wouldn’t go unpunished for very long. Thanks to a lack of Aggro decks, the overwhelming popularity of Jade Druid, and the new cards Simulacrum and Ghastly Conjurer, a more consistent Quest Mage deck emerged as a way to punish the slow meta. As players started to gear more and more towards beating slow decks, the pendulum began to swing back towards the aggro side of things. In the past few days the number of Pirate Warriors on ladder has greatly risen, and I haven’t spotted a single Frost Lich Jaina or Uther of the Ebon Blade in over 100 games.
      Towards the end of the Un’Goro metagame no one class was vastly more dominant than the others, but the same is certainly not true for the early days of KFT. Druid has become the most popular by a wide margin. According to the current Reaper Live report a staggering 36% of the Legend meta is made up of Druid decks. Thanks in no small part to the new cards Ultimate Infestation and Spreading Plague, Druid now boasts highly competitive Midrange and Control decks to compliment the Aggro deck which was already top tier in Un’Goro.
      A major reason why all three decks are so difficult to play against is how difficult it is to mulligan against a Druid. You can never know for sure if you should be keeping cards which are strong against Jade Druid or Aggro Druid, which surely plays a part in the success of both decks. Druid might be quite strong at the moment but it is certainly not unbeatable, and according to the Reaper Live report there are multiple decks which have a positive winrate against two of three Druid builds.
      Meta Beaters
      The perfect deck for this early meta will have the defensive tools to outclass Aggro decks such as Pirate Warrior and Aggro Druid in the early game while still being fast enough to kill Jade Druid and Kazakus Priest decks before they get the chance to dominate the late game. Aggro decks make up only 25% of the current meta, which means it’s still much more important to slant your deck towards the speedy end of things so that you can beat up on the slower decks which are still popular. All of these signs point towards an aggressively slanted Midrange deck as the best choice for the current meta, and the data from Reaper Live agrees. The deck with the best winrates across the board is not a Druid deck at all, but an aggressive Midrange Murloc Paladin deck.
      Midrange Murloc Paladin
      2x Murloc Tidecaller 2x Righteous Protector 2x Vilefin Inquisitor 2x Hydrologist 2x Rockpool Hunter 2x Murloc Warleader 2x Rallying Blade 1x Stonehill Defender 1x Wickerflame Burnbristle 2x Blessing of Kings 2x Corpsetaker 2x Gentle Megasaur 1x Bolvar, Fireblood 1x Finja, the Flying Star 2x Spikeridged Steed 1x Sunkeeper Tarim 2x Bonemare 1x Tirion Fordring Shockingly, Midrange Paladin has positive matchups against every deck in the meta except for Token Shaman and Aggro Druid, but even these matchups sit at a very manageable 48%. The deck was already a strong choice in the Un’Goro meta but it picked up some exciting new toys in KFT to build upon its previous success. Defensive minions like Righteous Protector and Corpsetaker allow the deck stall aggressive decks into the midgame, where Midrange Paladin shines. A Bonemare or a Spikeridged Steed on a Skelemancer is commonly a game ending play, and all of the powerful legendary minions the deck had access to in the Un’Goro meta have gone nowhere.
      Midrange Paladin also packs an impressive number of early Murlocs which are capable of applying tons of pressure. The dream 1-2-3-4 of Murloc Tidecaller into Rockpool Hunter into Murloc Warleader into Gentle Megasaur has to potential to kill as early as turn 4 against any opponent who doesn't pack interaction for the early game . With Murloc Paladin boasting such high win rates across the board, don’t be surprised if you see Hungry Crab start popping up as the tech card of choice in the near future.
      Big Priest
      2x Forbidden Shaping 1x Silence 2x Pint-Size Potion 2x Potion of Madness 2x Shadow Visions 2x Shadow Word: Pain 2x Shadow Word: Death 1x Barnes 2x Eternal Servitude 2x Priest of the Feast 2x Shadow Word: Horror 2x Dragonfire Potion 2x Shadow Essence 1x Free From Amber 1x The Lich King 2x Obsidian Statue 1x Ysera 1x Y'Shaarj, Rage Unbound In what I consider to be another big surprise, Big Priest is the only other deck with positive winrates against two of the three popular Druid decks . A brand new deck in KFT thanks to Eternal Servitude, Shadow Essence, and Obsidian Statue, the deck boasts a dominant 71% winrate against Midrange Druid and a very respectable 53% against Token Druid. Its 45% win rate against Jade Druid isn’t embarrassing either, which means this deck still has some game against the most popular deck in the format.
      Big Priest seems like a very luck-oriented deck on its surface as it features high-roll cards like Barnes and Shadow Essence to pull powerful minions from its deck at a discounted cost, yet in practice the deck is shockingly consistent. It doesn’t have any true misses off a Barnes, who himself is the only awkward card to hit off Shadow Essence. Even if it doesn’t hit one of these cards early, double Dragonfire Potion and double Pint-Size Potion plus Shadow Word: Horror allows the deck to draw out the game until they can play their huge minions naturally.
      With all that said, the deck still has a tendency to defeat itself by drawing the wrong combination of cards. It gets absolutely run over by Pirate Warrior and Quest Mage and isn’t able to run tech cards like Golakka Crawler or Dirty Rat due to the nature of Barnes and Shadow Essence. Fortunately for fans of Big Priest, these two bad matchups make up just 10% of the meta while the positive matchups for Big Priest account for roughly 40% of the meta, making Big Priest an excellent choice for the early KFT metagame.
      Tech of the Week
      The one piece of technology which has remained consistently powerful throughout the first week of KFT is The Black Knight. Thanks to the extremely widespread play of Bonemare there are almost no decks in the metagame which lack a juicy target for The Black Knight to gobble up. This Aggro Druid list which hit #1 Legend not only runs Bonemare, but also runs The Black Knight to pave the way for its cheaper minions to sneak in those last few points of damage. It doesn’t really seem to matter if your Aggro, Midrange, or Control, The Black Knight is a game winning tech card in the current meta. 
      Deck to Watch
      The success of Midrange Paladin can be attributed to the fact that it is both fast enough to go underneath the current Control decks and defensive enough to go over the top of the current Aggro decks. Any other deck which is capable of accomplishing this same feat would also be very well positioned, which makes me believe that Nostam's Midrange Hunter is poised to take off.
      2x Alleycat 2x Hungry Crab 2x Tracking 2x Crackling Razormaw 2x Golakka Crawler 2x Kindly Grandmother 2x Animal Companion 2x Bearshark 2x Eaglehorn Bow 2x Kill Command 2x Houndmaster 1x Nesting Roc 2x Tundra Rhino 1x Deathstalker Rexxar 2x Savannah Highmane 2x Bonemare This deck has all the tools it needs to blast its way through Jade Druid with the proper draw. Bearshark curves amazingly into Houndmaster, and Bonemare is like a Houndmaster on steroids. It runs a healthy curve of one and two drops to contest the board early, and pack all four crabs so it can steal some free wins off of Aggro decks. Deathstalker Rexxar seems at his absolute best in this style of deck, as he provides the deck with the card draw engine it needs to not run out of steam against controlling decks.
      I still think the list has a bit of room to improve. Hunter is currently the least played class in the entire meta which also means it is the least tested. I’m not sure that double Tundra Rhino shines in this list without Deathstalker Rexxar already in play. The deck also might be in need one more tool to outvalue opposing Midrange decks in the mid to late game, as it doesn’t pack many tools to catch up once it’s fallen behind.
      Conclusion
      Our goal with this report was to get you up to speed on the current trends in the meta and to provide you with the analysis you’ll need to stay ahead of the competition. As this was our first meta report for Hearthstone we would love to hear your feedback on what you felt worked or what you thought might have been missing. Please feel free to tell us in the comments what you found to be helpful and if there if there is anything you’d like to see in the next meta report!
      Until next time,
