This deck looks like it'd be fun, but without a lucky barnes proc, I can't see it standing up to aggro.  Murloc Shaman, Quest Rogue, and Pirate Warrior all seem like they would annihilate this.  Gonna spend the ~800 or so dust I need to craft and try it - hopefully I'm wrong.

Druid decks have always always historically had their issues and this deck is no different.  As with Druid decks of the past, it typically involves stabilizing at a low life total and as a result the extra few damage taking from sub-optimal play can give your opponent the damage they need, making the match-ups feel worse than they actually are.

I've had some fun with it for sure.  It's not as bad against Pirate Warrior as I thought it would be.  I don't think I've beat a single questing rogue yet, though.  By the time I've ramped up he's already got the cadre of 5/5's out.

If you have enough dust to craft this I don't like you

I have enough dust and cards to make this deck - sorry :P
Don't worry, you will be able to make expensive decks after some time as well. Play a lot, learn arena, and gain massive value from arena games. It's all about patience, as it helps you grind for longer and improve your skill, resulting in the aforementioned arena value.

if you are having trouble with aggro, tech in spreading plague, card is nuts. they will get through the wall of taunts but by then you will be dropping bombs. I removed mulch and feral rage to make space. seems like ultimate infestation might also be a good idea. perhaps in place of aviana.

I really like Safta's Taunt Druid deck! I don't like the Living Mana though; it's too often either dead in hand or when you play it, you have not enough mana to play your combo's the next (few) turns. The double Crypt Lord is problematic. Often, you find yourself playing Druid of the Swarm at turn 2 and to play another 1 attack minion often gives struggle for the board. I swapped one for a Tar Creeper and that runs a lot better against aggro. Also Tar Creeper becomes a 7/9 during opponent's turn after playing Bonemare which makes it kill nearly anything that attacks it.

I have been trying Claw instead of Wrath, as I feel the latter is kinda underpowered with 3 damage for 2 mana and the deck already has way more than enough card draw from Nourish and Ultimate Infestation. In this specific deck Claw gets insane value as many of its great combo's are 9 mana. Claw allows me to further push the board advantage. Example: playing Malfurion the Pestilent for 7, using hero power for 2 mana, playing Claw for the final 1 mana, adding 2 1/5 taunts to the board AND doing 5 damage.

Mire Keeper has been a problematic card in the deck. When you go for the mana, you fall behind on the board too much, waiting to get the cards for a combo going. When you go for the 2/2 slime, both minions are too easy to remove by AoE spells. Basically without Fandral Staghelm the card is kinda useless.

The deck lacks any alternatives for 4 mana, as you need to play Strongshell Scavenger with at least a taunt minion on the board to get same stats for mana as a Chillwind Yeti. And since we played 2 minions with 1 attack, this is often where we'll lose the board. I think it's a flawed approach to ramp to get to your combo's when you can play a strong minion on turn 4 (or at 4 mana) and control the board by trading as if you rely on drawing your combo cards to fight back you will often be down too much before they arrive. I don't own Fandral Staghelm so at 4 mana I have just the Scavengers, 2 Sen'Jin Shieldmasta and a Chillwind Yeti. The Yeti dominates against priest with its 4 attack damage. I tried Saronite Chain Gang but this card is only strong if you can play it and buff it immediately, so it turned out to be a Mire Keeper that slightly sticks to the board better. I tried Violet Teacher but it's counterproductive towards Spreading Plague. I plan to replace the Sen'Jin Shieldmasta's with Shellshifter as it would be a waste to not have the extra option to be 5/3.

I also have been running a single Savage Roar as a finisher, as Spreading Plague and Strongshell Scavenger combo often puts them close to lethal range when having the card available and late game often having 2-4 minions on the board at least. With Savage Roar, Claw and Hero Power, you do 7 damage with hero already.

This deck gave me great inspiration and with > 70% winrate I am shooting upwards through ranks. Thanks a lot!

      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      We kicked off this new series by analyzing a tricky situation which had only one optimal line of play. In episode two we'll take a look at a very different kind of situation, one where there might not be a perfect move at all.
      Please let us know in the comments what you would have done in this situation! One of the primary goals of this series is to foster improvement at Hearthstone by generating discussions. We would also love to hear your feedback on the video itself, as the series is still very new and has plenty room to improve on its format.

      A new Brawl has landed in the Tavern.
      Just like with the previous expansions, it's time to try out the deck recipes of Knights of the Frozen Throne in this week's Tavern Brawl. The archetypes for each deck recipe are the following:
      Druid: I guess the best name for this deck is Midrange Druid. It has Ultimate Infestation and Spreading Plague, so... PROFIT?! Deathrattle Hunter Elemental Mage Divine Shield Paladin Control Priest (you've probably seen variations of it in ladder) Jade Deathrattle Rogue Freeze Shaman Zoolock Control Warrior with Enrage minions This is a good opportunity to try out cards that you don't own. Good luck and have fun!
