lol

Don't see why not. You want to ramp up quickly and overwhelm your opponent in the early late-game and if that does not work, simply keep playing the jade cards and win the value game.

Haven't visited this site for a long time due to personal reasons.

So anyone has success with this deck on ladder?

 

The new cards just came out yesterday, so its a little early to tell.

If I remember right, the new Druid Legendary (Kun) was used during the Gadgetzan preview stream in their Jade Druid deck. Why is it not included here?

He isn't beneficial to the deck's goal as much as other cards in the deck can be. The card feels too slow (too expensive) in this deck from my experience. Could be only me though, and the card could work for you quite well. if you decide to try the card out, please tell us your results with it, thanks.

How well would Brann work in here?  Double the golems from Jade Spirit, Jade Behemoth, and Aya.

Brann Bronzebeard should work quite well in theory. I will ask Sottle why the card is not included in the deck.

Supporting this to show it's not only you. Played two mirrors of Jade vs Jade that ran the legendary, by the time they played their refill combo, I was ready to win. From a survival perspective (clutch moment of restoring health) against aggro decks, just compare it to Feral Rage.

I actually played this deck for a while, but I feel that this deck is too slow.
It is very hard to out tempo a midrange shaman or hunter. Not only that, against combo decks like freeze mage or miracle rogue, this deck does not have enough health gain to actually survive their combo, because of how slow the deck play style is.

This deck only shines in a control matchup, which is very unlikely, since all the warriors I've met so far are the new pirate warrior, which just trashes this deck

 

In my opinion, the shaman and rogue version of the jade lotus deck probably will perform much better. In the current meta, provided that the meta isn't swarming with aggro pirates.

That's because this deck isn't supposed to out tempo a deck, but rather out value it. That's why this deck should not be played in a meta swarmed with fast decks, sadly.

You should save your Feral Rage for the turn after mage plays Alexstrasza, or if you feel you are in danger. This way the damage mage deal before it just goes to waste.

I did. I even used both my feral rage for armour. Still does not out last their burn. Pyro,double bolt,double icelance, double fireball, forgotten torch and flaming torch.

In that case you could try the new Druid legendary, Kun. 10 extra health should be more than enough to keep you alive. You should also play more aggressively against freeze mage. I don't really have issues when playing against it with jade Druid.

I have used this deck now for about 25 games.  Its terrible. cant get a win to save my life.  I make a few tweaks to try to improve, adding health buffs, card draws and the like. 

If you can get perfect draws and play a complete idiot or have them go afk you can pull out a win but if they have played the game even once your going to lose. 

Dont waste your time with it.

Imo the shaman or the rogue ones are more consistent.

Rogue ramps their Jade up with total junk. Shaman has a little bit better junk, but they are still mediocre at best. Druid is miles ahead of these two in terms of consistency at least.

You can still play the tempo game pretty well, I'd say even better than Malygos Druid, because you have more mana acceleration and actually things to spend mana on other than removal. And your spells move your Arcane Giant play just as well. If you feel that you struggle against board-centric decks, tech in taunts like Ancient of War of more synergistic Sunfury Protector.

As far as Freeze matchup goes, playing it for 15 turns is a certain death anyways, and responsibility for it is held by either poor draw or poor piloting. Reflect on your games and pick one, but I assure you choosing first gives you no room for improvement.

Please upload a few replays to see whether it truly is the fault of the deck, as you claim, or if the issue lies within you, which is what I claim, since I do not experience issues playing this deck. Until you provide a replay or a constructive criticism, your post is completely useless.

Brann needs to be included in this deck. I took out an Azure Drake for him. Brann and Fandral ramp your Jade Golems very quickly. 

 

I was playing this with Raven Idols instead of Living Roots. Bad idea. Roots give you the ability to deal with early aggro minions. 

I threw in two Moonglade Portals instead of Arcane Giants. I found I needed more healing. There have been close games where I've used both.

Jade spirit is a neutal card, not druid specific

But at the same time it is a (tri-)class card. The decision was to list them as class cards, though we might change it later.

Have played a similar list; like it very much (though I'm at too low of a rank to really estimate the deck's power). 

Happy to see that it's not only me running Feral Rage in this shell; have seen many druids omitting it for reasons not apparent to me.

My list is -2 Arcane Giant, -1 Emperor Thaurissan, -1 Gadgetzan Auctioneer; +2 Raven Idol, +1 Bloodmage Thalnos, +1 Mulch. Arcane Giants were a necessary omission for me as I don't have Karazhan (I had stopped playing for about half a year) and I could see them played over Raven Idols. Thaurissan and Gadgetzan felt too slow to me; the time you use to get them running is better spent doing different things IMO. 

Mulch is a tech card to get a tempo swing in the mirror or to grab the board against Dragon Priest; it's also the Druid's best answer to stuff like Ragnaros. That being said, I don't feel too strongly about it and Thalnos (though Thalnos' spell damage increase has been really good to me). Brann could be decent I think, but he really needs one of the 7 cards for Golems. Think Brann's better in a Rogue or Shaman version as they might have more useful battlecries.

Brann only has synergy with Spirit and Behemoth, which I believe to be not enough to warrant his inclusion. He also will die a lot and you won't capitalize on him much until it's too late in the game.

Ancient of War is a better defensive option if you do not run Arcane Giant. Portals are good with them.

I vote for neutral, because if we delve in technicalities, they have cross-class applicability, like the neutrals, and they are, in fact, on neutral pages in-game. 

And seeing them on neutral side just makes navigating through decklists more easy. Class cards are, in fact, reserved for that class only.

      The twenty-third and twenty-fourth cards have been revealed. Both are Epic minions, one for Hunter and one for Druid.
      At seven Mana, Stitches Archer, or Abominable Bowman Archer has to compete with Volcanosaur for the slot. It also seems that Savannah Highmane does the same thing more reliably.

      (Source: Hearthpwn)
      That being said, there are plenty of Deathrattle options available for N'Zoth, the Corruptor to bring back in Hunter now, and if a slow enough deck can be made to work, this would be a great fit in such a deck.
      Fatespinner
      Fatespinner introduces a new mechanic, which should add an element of intrigue to the game. The lack of disguised information has been a complaint of many players since the dawn of Hearthstone. Fatespinner takes a first step into that world, and if successful as a mechanic, it should add a new layer of complexity and bluff to the game.

      As for the card itself, it has poor stats for its Mana cost, and seems to not have the greatest of effects. However, this is Druid we are talking about, and Druid having the ability to deal 3 damage to all minions, albeit slowly, should not be treated lightly. Sherazin, Corpse Flower was underrated by reviewers in the previous set, and is somewhat similar in that it was hard to assess how much value would be gained from its ability. I feel that this card might see play for the first Deathrattle ability, but more importantly, the very existence of a new secret mechanic should be good for the game as the design team explore it further.

      Professor Putricide has been revealed by DDaHyoNi.
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out on our Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion hub.
      Bring it On!

      This card is quite the surprise, and the second in the set seemingly designed to punish spell-heavy/combo decks. Whether this is viable depends entirely on the meta at hand, of course, but there is intricate synergy at play here between Dirty Rat and Shield Slam; pull a minion out, thus avoiding the downside of reducing its cost, then slam it right in for a mighty 10 damage. Could it also be used to bait board swarms for an impending Brawl? I like it.
      Coldwraith

      Considering mages are very lacking in the 3-drop department, we may be looking at a new mage staple here, especially considering how popular Frostbolt and Primordial Glyph currently are. The revealed mage death knight card also seems to promote the use of Water Elemental, furthering your ability to get value out of the Freeze-related effect. Might Freeze mages even consider running this? Probably, since their game plan is all about... well, Freezing and drawing. Pretty cool card, if I may.

      Naiman_hs just revealed Voodoo Hexxer.
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out on our Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion hub.
      Voodoo Hexxer

      Water Elemental's big sister, Voodoo Hexxer is very likely to find a place in any control-oriented shaman deck. Along the new weapon, it seems like the shaman class is being pushed towards Freezing. Stat-wise, Voodoo Hexxer is not all that great for cost, but it fulfills its purpose: it's hard to remove, it'll stall decks that rely on swarming, and even works against weapons. In control matchups, Voodoo Hexxer becomes a form of pseudo removal, especially when coupled with the aforementioned weapon.

      Bearshark and Hadronox were just revealed!
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out on our Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion hub.
      Bearshark

      Houndmaster should probably be renamed to Bearsharkmaster because it curves out just perfectly into an Elusive minion that's going to be difficult to remove. Since hunters don't use spells to buff their own minions, Elusive isn't actually going to be a downside. This seems like it'll make for a solid addition to any hunter deck.
      Hadronox

      The current rendition of Ramp druid runs 5 to 6 Taunt minions, but plays very greedy with cutting long-time staples of the class such as Druid of the Claw. Could this fit the deck? I don't know; Hadronox requires you to have drawn your few Taunters and played them, something Ramp doesn't always get to do by nature. Ramping this minion is actually pretty bad because its Deathrattle simply won't trigger then. Let's see if another Taunt minion ends up being printed for druid; otherwise, I can't say this card will be popular.
