Wow, this deck is amazing on the early ranks! It pretty much counters all the c'thun decks, they can't even get to 10 mana. Thanks!

What would u suggest as an alternative to mounted raptor?

Try another beast, to keep the beast synergy around the deck.

 

Maybe huge toad?

Druid of the Flame isn't Standard-legal any more, is it?

It is from Blackrock Mountain, so it still can be played in standard.

I like this deck. Just killed a rank 16 priest on turn 5.  I placed a savage combatant right on the first turn (ring & innervate) and only used buffs on that minion, hero power and some removal spells.  Thank you very much for sharing this deck.

Fun deck. I replaced the Darnassus Aspirants with a second Mounted Raptor and a Jungle Panther. Aside from making the deck more beast-y another sticky minion and another stealthy minion can't hurt, given what the deck is trying to do. Can't wait to try Enchanted Raven in this deck!

You must be thinking of Druid of the Fang. That was a pretty good card...

I created a account here just to show my gratitude to the creator of this guide!
Im a new player (2 days ago i got all my classes to lvl 20 xD) and didnt consider ranked yet until yesterday.
Was looking for some low budget decks and this one seemed most interesting, the aggro paladin seemed to have some flaws imo, the others didnt rly catch my interest.

Although i dont follow this build 100% due to not having the adventure cards its still awesome, as u can see from my link i replaced Druid of the Flame and Mounted Raptor with 1x Jungle Panther, 1x Mark of Nature, 1x Fandral Staghelm.
I got Fandral Staghelm from i card pack and  thought it fitted in nicely..

Currently im at 20 win and 4 loses. Thankyou!

Can we quit calling this 'low budget' while we have a beast druid, which is said to be able to reach legend for only 940 dust.

I mean I am not saying this deck is expensive, just saying 'supposedly' more expensive copy of this deck is cheaper.

Low budget doesn't only mean dust, but also in terms of adventures. You need the Curator for the normal version. Since it comes from Karazhan, it is not counted in the dust count, but it still requires purchasing at least 3 wings of the adventure.

Thanks for the great guide! I just started playing hearthstone 2 days ago, got all heroes to lvl 10 and spent all coins on card packs which got me an orange one, so I got the entire deck together except for 1 Druid of the Claw, the Druid of the Flames and Mounted Raptor

They wont let me craft Druid of the Flame and Mounted Raptor because they say I have to do some adventures first and since I spent all my gold and dust on getting the rest of the deck (except for 1 Druid of the Claw), it will take a while before I can aquire these cards.

What cards can you recommend as temporary replacement for these cards? I know they are unique in their own way but there has to be something better than my current 2 Ironfur Grizzly and an Oasis Snapjaw.

I hope you can advise me on what to put in the deck while I save for the required coins to get into the adventures.

Keep up the good work!

Huge Toads, Dire Wolves AlphaJungle Panthers, second Stranglethorn Tiger or Stampeding Kodos. You could also try Ancient of War.
Druid of the Flame should be your priority.

Thanks for the quick response! Decided to sign up on the forum with my HotS username, since I've been over at that part of the forum as well :)

Those cards seem easier to obtain and will get them while I save up coins to do the adventures and get the real deal :)

Thanks again! <3

I decided to go with the Dire Wolves Alpha. I don't see the need of extra stealth and the random 1 damage at death is kinda meh to me. I think the adjacent +1/+1 works really well with Violet Teacher. I just got the 2nd Druids of the Claw and the first Dire Wolves Alpha. When I get the daily 100 gold I have my deck complete for now :)

EDIT: Just completed the chicken dinner for 300 gold. Got my 2nd wolves and put the panter in :))

53 games into it with as only difference having a Jungle Panther instead of the Mounted Raptor (yes I bought some adventures!) and moved from rank 25 (start) to 16, but I am still waiting for my first win against hunter.

Whatever I try, my minions keep either being instakilled by charge+devine shield units and 'if you have a beast do 5 damage instead' and otherwise they just melt to the endless stream of secrets. I'm at the point that I'm afraid to play any minions or attack anything. Minions keep getting sent back to my hand or die to '2 damage to all enemies'.

Do you guys have any hints on how to approach games vs hunter with this deck?

I noticed the Darnassus Aspirants not giving me any great advantage as they are usually taken out instantly and if they remain on the board they have no synchronicity with Mark of Y'saarj. Also I noticed being just a few points of damage short to finish the opponent off. After watching some games played by Kolento (basically the mastermind behind the various Druid Beast decks on this site), I replaced the Darnassus Aspirants by Enchanted Ravens and replaced my Jungle Panther (as I don't own Mounted Raptor yet) by Stranglethorn Tiger. The Enchanted Ravens really give me a bigger edge during the early game and allow me to spend mana way more efficiently than with the 2 drop Darnassus Aspirants which have to compete with Druid of the Saber, Mark of Y'Saarj, Power of the Wild and Wrath.

If you feel you are struggling playing the first 3 turns mana efficient, I would highly recommend the Aspirants :)

      This Mage Legendary card was revealed in collaboration with Wronchi!
      If you remember from the expansion announcement video, Hearthstone's developers were sucked into Netherstorm and it's up to Levi the intern to rescue them! As he ventures into Boom Labs, he encounters Stargazer Luna.
      The video was made by Wronchi Animations, who have created many beloved and hilarious Hearthstone cartoons. There's probably going to be a second part, so expect more card reveals!
      Now, let's talk about the card itself.

      With a Netherstorm expansion, one would expect that the magnificent Kael'thas would have been the Mage Legendary. Instead, we get Stargazer Luna which is a very interesting card with a decent statline. She can complement perfectly Aggro/Burn Mage, but you could perhaps find her in Minion-based Mage decks: mostly Murloc Mage, but maybe Elemental Mage as well. She has potentially better tempo than Aluneth, but is more risky. You obviously don't want to play her on turn 3. Let the topdeck wars begin!
      The reveal schedule is unclear at the moment, but it should go as with previous expansions: an initial reveal livestream on July 23, followed by roughly two weeks of card reveals by community sites and personalities, then a final stream before The Boomsday Project releases on August 7.

      New features include Legendary spells, the Magnetic keyword, Omega cards and Project spells.
      The second expansion of the Year of the Raven was indeed related to Netherstorm, home of the unforgettable Dr. Boom, and it's called the Boomsday Project. Apart from the new features, five cards were also revealed.
      The announcement video has an appropriate 80s science fiction movie vibe, featuring notable faces from the Hearthstone team.
      It's Goblins vs Gnomes 2.0 as the Mech tribe is definitely going to return with a vengeance! There's a new keyword called Magnetic: Magnetic minions can either be played on their own or they can be fused with a Mech minion that's on the board to add to their health, attack and ability.

      Omega cards can also be played regularly. However, if you play them at 10 Mana Crystals, you will get a powerful boost. The Battlecry assures that the OP version cannot be cheated out. Druid, the only class that can ramp its Mana up, will surely find a use for this type of minion. Curiously enough, the Omega Defender isn't a Mech, even though it definitely looks like one.

      Projects are powerful spells, that will benefit both players. Assumedly, all classes will have a Project spell. "Research" and "Weapons" Projects were teased, with the latter probably belonging to Warrior.

      We've seen all kinds of Legendary cards: minions, Quests, Weapons, Hero cards. Now it's time for Legendary Spells to make their appearance. I wonder if there are any special rules when it comes to Discovering or playing discounted versions of Legendary Spells, because they can potentially be powerful. Here's the Rogue one:

      That's all with the new features, but don't forget: The Boomsday Project isn't all about mechs and projects. It's also about science, crazy discoveries and the manipulation of elements. Under this thematic, we can find the Shaman Legendary minion:

      It's almost certain that Dr. Boom will be making a grand return for this Hearthstone Expansion; after all, he's the big boss on The Boomsday Project. He was shortly teased in the announcement video: unfortunately, this time around not all classes will be able to enjoy the Dr. Boom goodness as he looks like a Warrior card. Lord Jaraxxus will also reinvent himself as a new Warlock Hero skin: Mecha-Jaraxxus!

      According to the official announcement post, the new expansion will go live on August 7, 2018 - a week earlier than August expansions from previous years. The official site of The Boomsday Project is also up!
      The Boomsday Project will also bring along new PvE Adventure content: The Puzzle Lab! It will go live on August 21 and from the description on the official site, it looks slightly different from the Dungeon Run and the Missions. Players will have to participate in successful experiments against nine bosses. These include goals like "Lethal", which is kill the enemy in one turn; Mirror, which requires you to create a perfect copy of your opponent's board; Board Clear; and Survival, which requires you stay alive from the opponent's attacks! You will earn the following card back for completing The Puzzle Lab:

      Here is the new Boomsday board:

      The login launch reward for The Boomsday Project will be three packs and a random Class Legendary card. A card reveal livestream will be held on July 23 at 10:00 am PST on the official Hearthstone Twitch channel.
      Pre-ordering The Boomsday Project has some additional perks compared to other expansions and two different options. You can preorder the normal Bundle which will contain 50 The Boomsday Project packs, a random Golden Legendary card from the expansion and the Mecha-Jaraxxus card back. Or you can get the Mega Bundle, which contains 80 packs, a random Golden Legendary, the Mecha-Jaraxxus card back and the Mecha-Jaraxxus Warlock Hero skin.

There's the simple bundle which contains 50 Boomsday Project packs, a random Golden Legendary card and the Mecha-Jaraxxus card back. Its cost is at 49.99 EUR/USD.
