Big Druid

Recommended Posts

I'm playing this deck with innervate instead of the scouts, I only miss a primordial drake, so I play a random Alextraza instead (big dragon with a usefull battlecry if happen).

I'll try a wild version asap... I can see a jade blossom somewhere, but I don't know what to cut..... Do someone has some suggestion for a wild version?

I just got back into HS after a while, crafted this deck and I'm having a lot of fun with it at low rank trying to get used to it.

The main issue I have at the moment is not ramping up correctly which I feel is a big part of this deck and I'd like to get the hang of it. Most cards are pretty straightforward on this front but I wonder how the Biology Project card is used exactly. Do I use it early? Is it better to use it against control/rush type decks? Do I use it when I can use the 1 mana most efficiently? Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated ?

 

EDIT: I also wonder whether to keep Naturalize and/or Lesser Jasper Spellstone on mulligan or to mulligan hard for the mana advantage when you think you're going against a rush deck.

You should use Biology Project early against aggro if you have your defensive cards ready, or if you have the means to draw into them. If you do not have either, holding onto the card until it can give you a significant benefit will prevent the opponent from getting a hold of the board too early. What this means is that you should use it like an Innervate most of the time, unless the two extra mana can help you ramp into a strong defensive card in the following turn. 

Against control, using this card gives you a bigger advantage than it does for your opponent as long as they run a less greedy deck that you are. Since there are very few decks that require late-game power greater than you do, it is a safe keep. Since control decks can rarely overpower you in the early game, using it similarly to Wild Growth is usually good enough. However, if you have multiple ramp cards in your opening hand, try to navigate through them as efficiently as possible.

Naturalize can be kept against aggro if the deck usually runs a big minion or a single minion that is very important for their strategy, like Scavenging Hyena or Frothing Berserker. Generally, it is not worth keeping, as those archetypes are not too popular these days, though if you face the same opponent two times in a row and you know that they run one of these, you can keep it. 

Against control, keeping Naturalize is not really that great, as you want to use it on your own Hadronox rather than your opponent's minions, and so throwing it away is the better choice most of the time.

Lesser Jasper Spellstone is a fantastic tool against aggro decks and should always be kept in your opening hand in those matchups. Against control, keep it only against board-centric decks, especially those that rely on getting one or two big minions out of hand, though as these are not really that common, you can mulligan the Spellstone away when facing control in hope of draw, ramp or combo pieces.

      Hello everyone! When i downloaded the recent shadowlands expansion, i noticed that my macros no longer worked =0. This is not a single target DPS  macro, this is a Help / Harm selective macro So i did some digging to find out what was goin on, An example of this would be : /cast [help] Innervate ; [harm] Entangling Roots ; Innervate.  This macro utilizes one button for a dual purpose. if i am targeted on friend i innervate them while if i and targeting a opponent it would root them in place. This structure is now broken but has also made things easier in most cases, After doing some digging i discovered some new macros and the new format. Some examples of the new way to write this would be :
       #showtooltip
      /cast [help,nodead][help,nodead]innervate
      /cast [harm,nodead][harm,nodead]Entangling Roots
      #showtooltip
      /cast [help,nodead][help,nodead]Regrowth
      /cast [harm,nodead][harm,nodead]Wrath
      #showtooltip
      /cast [harm,nodead][@target,harm,nodead]Moonfire
      /cast [help,nodead][@target,help,nodead]Rejuvenation
      #showtooltip
      /cast [help,nodead][help,nodead]Wild Growth
      /cast [harm,nodead][harm,nodead]Entangling Roots
      This is what they call a fall through macro, If the first line of code is not available because of a cooldown or if the Help or Harm selection, it will fall through to the next line of code. This works especially well for balance druids, shaman, and hybrid healing classes that use a ton of buttons. You can cut the amount of keys you need press in half which saves space and prevents accidentally pressings the wrong button. I like to pair my spells by the time it takes to cast, Instant casts with instant casts. They also introduces a mouse over macro for heals and rebuffs which is really good for world PVP. One of the better macros iv'e seen is a mouse over Rebirth : 
       #showtooltip Rebirth
      /cast [@mouseover,help]Rebirth;Rebirth
      #showtooltip Remove Corruption
      /cast [target=mouseover,help,nodead][target=target] Remove Corruption
       
      If you are going to try and make your own macro, you should keep in mind
      1: The Global Cool Down or GCD which is the time it takes between 2 casts and
      2: Not all of your spells and trinkets share a GCD, so you are able to cast 2 or 3 spells at the exact same time as long as it doesn't share a GCD.
      I hope this helps!
