Jade Druid No Giants Gadgetzan Standard

So, even though Aya has synergy with Brann, is her missing from the decklist intentional? Is it a budget variant?

Was Fandral Staghelm also intentionally left out? He's mentioned in the subsequent paragraphs regarding strategy, however.

 

Also wondering about Aya, I went ahead and crafted her, hoping she would serve some purpose in a variety of decks [eventually].

Looks like it's intentional as this is not a budget variant. Sottle is currently unavailable and L0rinda thinks that it could be because she can be too slow in pirate meta.

Sottle is trying to dish out as many decks as possible, so he sometimes copies paragraphs of decks that have a very similar playstyle to save time without heavily lowering the quality of the guides. As for the Fandral Staghelm missing, it's quite strange. 

 

I, to be completely honest, have no idea why these 2 cards are missing and you will sadly have to wait until Sottle responds, which should be tomorrow. Sorry to keep you waiting.

I take out the ancient of war replace with Fandral and replace one auctioneer with Tharussian.  Two auctioneers doesn't really do much for you except slow your hand down the body is too weak to eat anything useful for 6 mana

Not bad. I'd like to see how you'd justify the second gadgetzan though, even with more chance of drawing him, he's useless if all the spells are gone at the end, and if you get the second one in the midgame, you'd lose too much tempo after playing the first one. In the early game, he's a bit pointless as you can imagine (unless you have a very specific hand and follow up draw).

I strongly agree with the above post, one gadgetzan should be dropped for a thaurissan. He's just more optimal in virtually every situation, a card where the odds are you could just topdeck, play AND get deterrent with on turn 6 if your opponent doesn't have an annoying board first.

I don't think this should be classed a different decktype, but a card swap of the original Giants variant. I feel its stronger however because the giants are just simply not needed in this archetype. 0 mana 8/8 dudes are cool, but odds are you could both do more with the mana by the time they become profitable in terns of control and jade golem management, and at the end it wouldn't matter because they'd get outclassed by jade idols anyway.

As a side note, I am confused by the note about swapping out thaurissan in the card swaps section lol I'm guessing it was a mistake.

It would be a lot easier if you had a page where we could explore the different archetype options as a whole so you could compare and choose which tech cards are better instead of having them listed as a whole new "deck" like this and the Giants varient. Not only would it make it easier to sift through new decks, but It would obviously make your job easier too!

lol Anyway, solid deck overall. Performs really well against everything that isn't excessively fast. I'm a fan of Ancient of war, and I think he's a good fit in this deck, and against some classes it ends up as a big red stop sign that wrecks their tempo/board presence.

As a complete side note, it's nice to have something to laugh in the face of mill rogue with ahaha

Nice deck. Keep it up man.

      Hi everyone! I would like to update you on my new role as a Hearthstone guide writer.
      Hi everyone! I would like to update you on my new role as a Hearthstone guide writer.
      As some of you will know, I've been writing news here at Icy-Veins for over a year. A lot has changed in that year, both personally, and within Hearthstone. I switched from Arena to Constructed with the introduction of Standard, and have started to cast quite a few large events.
      With those things in mind, I've been let loose on writing guides. I won't be touching Sottle's high level content, but instead will be focussing on keep your old decks fresh. I will be updating decks which have dropped out of the meta, and making them playable to somewhere in the region of Rank Five. They will be weaker than the meta decks, but if you have played the older versions you will probably find that you already own many of the cards, and experience, required to play them.
      Hopefully this will fill a gap for some of you. I'll be a little busy for the first few weeks as I get the hang of things and concentrate on producing quality content, but feel free to let me know if there's an archetype you feel has been left out.
