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.

      Chinese streamer YiLingShu has revealed a new Rogue card from Saviors of Uldum on the streaming platform Douyu.
       
      Chinese streamer YiLingShu has revealed a new Rogue card from Saviors of Uldum on the streaming platform Douyu: Bazaar Mugger.

      It's a fine addition to Rogue's kit of Burgle-themed cards. The "from another class" text is in keeping with the new design philosophy for the mechanic which enables cards like Vendetta to be active in Rogue mirror matches. Older cards such as Blink Fox and Burgle itself tend to say "from your opponent's class". Pilfer, a Classic set card, was changed in Patch 9.14 to reflect the commitment to the new direction.

      Hunter's latest additions are two massive creepy-crawlies with powerful effects.
       
       
      Two new Saviors of Uldum cards have been revealed via the PlayHearthstone Instagram story. This time, it's a pair of massive creepy-crawlies for Hunter: Wild Bloodstinger and Scarlet Webweaver.

      Wild Bloodstinger is slightly over-statted as a 6 Mana 6/9, but it will have to do battle with a Minion from your opponent's hand before you get to use those stats. This kind of effect has been seen occasionally before in Hearthstone: Dirty Rat was a much-loved (and much-hated) combo disruption card that denied many a Raza the Chained before they rotated to Wild together. Unseen Saboteur is a similar option in the current Standard card pool, but can be wildly inconsistent.
      Scarlet Webweaver is pretty much a Dreampetal Florist for Beasts. You could play King Krush for 4 Mana and do some big damage. You could also play Tundra Rhino for 0 Mana and do some big damage. The possibilities are endless.
      Taken together, these cards suggest Hunter might be playing with some bigger beasts than usual in Saviors of Uldum. This could be a nice change of pace after six months of messing around with Springpaw and various other 1/1s.

      A new Druid Spell has been revealed on Firebat's Youtube channel - and it looks to have a lot of untapped potential.
       
      Firebat has shared his exclusive Saviors of Uldum card reveal on Youtube: Hidden Oasis!

      The card has huge synergy with the new Druid quest, Untapped Potential, and makes it look potentially very strong - the card can be played on turn 6 with both of its Choose One effects combined every time if you're willing to be patient.

      That's all of today's scheduled card reveals - the next one is slated for Sunday at 6.00 AM BST, although it's always possible that we get some surprise reveals in the interim. See you then!

      The Legendary Quest card for Paladin in Saviors of Uldum has been revealed by Spanish Youtuber Atlas (alongside an adorable 1-drop that will help you complete it).
       
      The Legendary Quest card for Paladin in Saviors of Uldum has been revealed by Spanish Youtuber Atlas (alongside an adorable 1-drop that will help you complete it).
      It's all about playing minions with Reborn, the new expansion keyword. Reborn Minions come back with 1 Health the first time they die, making them especially tough to get rid of (and great to copy with Emperor Wraps, the Quest reward.)
      Alongside Making Mummies we also got Murmy, a new 1 Mana 1/1 Murloc with Reborn.

       
      Seems like Paladin's identity in Saviors of Uldum is beginning to take shape: it's playing a lot of dudes with 1 Health, whether drawing them with Salhet's Pride, generating them with Sandwasp Queen, or resurrecting them with the Reborn keyword.
      Murmy has actually been teased already during a Reddit developer AMA. Asked if there were any cute cards forthcoming in Saviors of Uldum, designer Alec Dawson said:
      Alec Dawson (/u/HS_Alec)
      There are definitely a few in this expansion, especially if you like mummies! So there you have it. Murmy. Cute. In an undead, fish monster sort of way.
      (Also quite probably a terror in Murloc Shaman.)

      A new Warlock card has been revealed by the Chinese streamer 瓦莉拉 (Valeera). It's the first of 51 Saviors of Uldum cards to be revealed at scheduled times by community figures and content creators.

      It's a new 2 Mana 2/1 Rare for Warlock. Here's Expired Merchant:

      This kind of targeted discard effect has been seen before on Shriek and Reckless Diretroll - it's a nice way of mitigating the randomness of the discard mechanic. In this case it can be used to duplicate one of your power cards. That could mean an extra copy of Mountain Giant, endless chains of Soulwardens and more.
      Pour one out for the Wild players though - one Bloodreaver Gul'dan was bad enough.
