Replacement options?

4 posts in this topic

So I got a lot of jade cards for druid and neutral in the 15-20 packs I've opened, and I wanted to make a jade druid deck, right? But I'm poor, so I look up "Jade Druid Budget Deck". I find one on this site with the following deck list:
 

But I don't have Raven Idol. Or nourish, though I can just craft that since it's in classic. So can anyone suggest an option for replacing the raven idols? I don't want to get all of League of Explorers just to play with it for a month then watch it turn to dust so I can craft other cards for decks in standard. I have one branch, but that's it. I was thinking maybe 1 jeweled scarab, though I know that card is frowned upon for reasons I've never been made aware of, for flexibility, and a loot hoarder for pure draw.

4 months. Next expansion and the rotation are scheduled for April. Note that League contains a big amount of staples, including even Wild mode relevant cards. Your investments will be safe.

Replacing Raven Idol is a tricky task. They are good, and even though you don't have Fandral to push the, over the top, they still move the counter on Arcane Giants, which is a very important job.

I don't know what your meta is, but you can try running Druid of the Claw. He is a long-time staple of Budget Druid decks and will serve you well, especially since Jade Blossom ramps from 3 to 5 so easily. If your metagame is full of Pirates, you can tech in Mistress of Mixtures and stop them in their trails.

If you have the dust for Nourish I suggest to craft them. Its a really good card that can go in almost any Druid deck. 
I myself don't run Raven Idol, since I don't run Giants. And replaced them with one Ancient and one Druid of the Claw. If you don;t have an ancient put two Druid of the Claw's in. :)

Personally, I think the meta is too fast for 2 auctioneers.  I would cut one auctioneer and one feral rage (less useful without fandrel) and add in 2 mistress of mixtures and 2 ooze's.  The nourishes are important.  Craft them.  Super super good.  I would also consider cutting one of the giants for an ancient of war if you have one, since you're not running the idols.

      The single-player adventure, introduced along with the Rastakhan's Rumble expansion, is now available in all regions.
      The Rumble Run is very similar to the Dungeon Run and the Monster Hunt, in the sense that you will face eight opponents and you will build your deck as you progress using card bundles, passives and powerful minions exclusive to this game mode.
      Your hero will always be Rikkar, a young Troll champion eager to prove himself. In the beginning of your run, you will be offered three different Shrines (more on them in the next paragraph) from three different classes. This initial decision basically equals to you picking a Class for this run. The other eight classes will be your opponents.

      Shrines exist as minions on the board and they have powerful effects. Each class has three different Shrines and each starting Shrine comes with a complementary deck of 10 minions that synergise with it. When a Shrine dies, it goes dormant for 3 turns and its effect isn't active until it comes back to life.
      Subsequently, you will build your deck using card bundles, neutral passive abilities and class-specific minions exclusive to the Rumble Run.
      If you finish the Rumble Run once with any class, you will earn this card back:

      Good luck on this new adventure and we'll soon have a detailed guide on it!
