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.

      Update 17.0 came with a few bugs that need fixing, so Blizzard outlined a hotfix schedule for the next two weeks.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We are currently in the process of putting out a few hotfixes for issues introduced after the 17.0 update. Please note that these fixes take place on the server side, so you should not need to download anything if you’ve updated to 17.0.
      We’ve identified and fixed an issue that could cause the game to fail to offer some eligible players the Returning Player Experience. Affected players should now receive the appropriate quest line when logging into Hearthstone. Whizbang the Wonderful will no longer offer decks with cards that have moved to the Hall of Fame. Kingsbane will now correctly be destroyed and shuffled into your deck when it reaches 0 durability. Living Roots, when disenchanted, now properly gives the amount of dust of a common instead of an epic. However, its gem rarity will not be updated until Monday (3/30). Invoke cards will now no longer appear from cards that generate other cards. Clever Disguise will now correctly function as intended when played. This coming Monday (3/30), we’re planning to deploy a data-only patch that addresses a couple more issues:
      Darkness Awaits will no longer be incorrectly marked as collectible in the Collection. Basic cards will no longer be incorrectly earned from Arena rewards. Living Root’s gem rarity will be corrected from Epic to Common. There are several known issues that will self-resolve on 4/7 when the Demon Hunter and Ashes of Outland unlock:
      Felfin Navigator will correctly appear in the Battlegrounds minion pool. The Battlegrounds Perks button will correctly function as intended when clicked. The new Priest cards will correctly appear in the Arena card pool. Demon Hunter Initiate cards will no longer be granted by completing Galakrond’s Awakening Chapters. Hallucination and Blink Fox will work correctly when played against Demon Hunter in Practice Mode. Curious Glimmerroot will no longer cause client crashes when played against Demon Hunter in Practice Mode. The Search Bar in the Collection will correctly function as intended, and will no longer jump to the top of the screen. Additionally, there are a few Boomsday Project Puzzles that can no longer be completed now because of card changes introduced in 17.0. We’re planning to deploy a fix for Boomsday Project Puzzles on April 9.
      We are investigating several other reports and will keep you posted as we know more. We’d like to thank everyone for their patience while we get some of these bugs squashed!
