What is your opinion on a good substitution for Imp Master? That's the only one I don't have.

Could you add some comments about cards you left out on purpose? For instance a card like savagery or mark of the wild? Or cards like Ironbard protector or Stormwind Champion?

 

I suspect there is a good reason why you preferred other cards, but it would help me reason about the deck in case I want to replace cards.

That would be quite a long list, don't you think? :D

Savagery is a highly situational, garbage card. Ironbark protector and Stormwind Champion cost too much to be included in an aggro deck. As for mark of the wild, thats more of a control type card, but i suppose its a matter of preference.

Manatee is right in these cases.

 

However, if you'd like to hear about why other cards are not included, you might want to provide us a list. Explaining every single other card in the game, why it isn't in the deck would be indeed too long.

My win percentage with this deck is pretty high. I did switch out the two Yeti's for two Dragonling mechanics.

Can someone tell me why we use imp master in the deck because it gets destroyed to easily by the people I play against and I used savage roar one time to win the game

I didn't have imp master so I switched it out for two wolf riders, also got rid of the azure drakes for twilight drakes, having the azures there to only combo with swipe and wrath seemed a bit to much for me. The card draw would be nice, but being able to play a 4/6 or 4/7 within the first couple of turns generally turns their focus away from my little minions especially if I can taunt it up.

This deck isn't that good. It sucks versus priest and mage. If someone gets out a turn one 0/4 taunt you're done

This is a low budget version of a deck and the fact that you don't have Ancient of Lore will often make your late game suffer when playing against decks outside of your budget range. Once you get your Ancients of Lore, your late game will improve, however for now, you really need to create the board or card advantage with your Violet Teacher and Gadgetzan Auctioneer.

Ancient of Lore is actually what hurts this deck... including epic cards in a low-budget deck means you go up against opponents with epic cards in play mode.  You want to play druid rush in a meta where druid rush is powerful and that means sticking to commons and rares until you have the cards to compete.  I like running leper gnomes, loot hoarders, knife jugglers and power of the wild for my weenies, then wolfriders, yeti, shieldmastas and violet teachers for midrange and card-drawers for the end.

 

Never play ranked mode with weak decks, trust me.  Stick to play mode and nothing rarer than rare and you'll end up against deck archetypes you can handle.

As an addendum, if you limit your rush deck to nothing rarer than rare the most common enemy you'll face is a cheap hunter beast deck.  My last 3 wins finished off the hunter on turns 6, 8 and 6 and none of the games were the same with the exception of the opponent simply not being able to handle how lethal one unchecked minion can be.  On one game turn 5 turned into innervate, wolfrider, savage roar for 18 points since a knife juggler and swamp ooze were also out.  On another an innocent turn 1 swamp ooze turned into a 7/2 for two turns before my opponent could kill it.  Mark of Nature can turn into a mini savage roar if your opponent dares to leave *anything* on the board alive.

 

I'm not a big fan of Wild Growth, I do run with one of them but I don't often have to play it.  I'd rather draw another 3/2 for that 2 mana and keep up the pressure.

I don't think this is correct.  For instance, I have nothing rarer than a rare card in my deck and I just went up against a warrior who pulled out Leroy Jenkins to beat me.

      The latest update, Patch 7.1, is live. This update includes changes to Arena, the long awaited balance changes, and the introduction of Un'Goro pre-purchase.
      The entire list for the notes can be seen at the bottom of this post, but here are the highlights.
      Balance and Ladder Changes
      As announced previously, Small-Time Buccaneer is now a 1/1 minion. Spirit Claws now costs 2 Mana. You will no longer be able to fall below certain Ranks on ladder. Those ranks are 15,10, and 5.
      Arena Changes
      Also now live are the announced Arena changes.
      Arena has seen a major overhaul, with the format being Standard only. Commons, and neutral Basic and Classic cards will be less frequent. Spells will be offered more often. If you have Golden cards in your collection, they will appear in your draft.
      Other Changes
      The keyword Poisonous has been added to replace "Destroy any minion damaged by this minion". This will apply to Pit Snake, Emperor Cobra, Maexxna, and Patient Assassin. From the pieces we have seen regarding Un'Goro, it will probably also apply to Plants in the new set, and possibly some other cards as well.
      There have been changes to the matchmaking system. Presumably in line with the discussion with Iksar last week. If so, these changes will mainly impact Legendary players.
      Blizzard
      Ranked Play Upon achieving certain milestones in Ranked Play, it will no longer be possible to lose ranks beyond those milestones for that season. The milestones are Rank 20, 15, 10, 5, and Legend. Arena Creating decks for the Arena will now feature Standard cards only. Arena runs that were started prior to the patch will still include Wild cards. Rares, Epics, and Legendaries will be offered more frequently during Arena deckbuilding. Spells will now show up with a higher frequency. Neutral Basic / Classic cards will appear less often. If you own a Golden version of a card, the first copy you draft will be Golden. If you own multiple Golden copies of a card, all copies you draft will be Golden. Balance Updates Small-time Buccaneer’s health reduced from 2 to 1. The mana cost of Spirit Claws increased from 1 to 2. GeneralNew keyword: Poisonous - Minions with Poisonous will destroy any minion they inflict damage to.  Pit Snake, Patient Assassin, Emperor Cobra, and Maexxna have been updated with the new keyword. Added some memory optimizations. Improved matchmaking for new players. We are testing an update to the account creation process for mobile players. This will minimize the overhead associated with creating a new Battle.net account, and will be available in limited release. Maximum in-game music volume has been capped in order to retain the best audio quality. [Android] We made some optimizations to Android distribution, allowing for a smaller install size and smoother patching in the future. Bug Fixes Resolved inconsistencies in the way that Small Time Buccaneer’s Attack interacts with effects such as those generated by Humility, Keeper of Uldaman, and Crazed Alchemist. Resolved an issue where a Kazakus potion spell cards could appear blank when copied by a minion or spell effect. Knuckles will now correctly use its effect when under the effects of Misdirection. Addressed an issue with the interaction of Wrath’s card draw timing in conjunction with Daring Reporter. Snipe will now correctly trigger after Potion of Polymorph. Djinni of Zephyrs will now correctly copy spells buffed by spell damage. Bouncing Blade will now correctly continue bouncing after clearing a Divine Shield. Resolved an issue where seasonal reward cards could take a while to show up in the Collection Manager. Searching the Collection Manager with a class name will now correctly display Tri-Class cards. Resolved issues that could slow or stop payment authentication when using the in-game Shop. Fixed many minor visual issues and some card text inconsistencies. (source)

      The next expansion will be Journey to Un'goro. 
      Blizzard have released a short video revealing that, as speculated, the next expansion will be Journey to Un'goro. Four cards from the next set were shown in the reveal video.
      The expansion will be released in early April, and will contain 135 cards. It is set in Un'Goro, an area filled with dinosaurs, with a volcano at the heart of the region. The launch of the set will trigger the start of The Year of the Mammoth.

      Volcano, adding to the flavour of the set, was the first card to be revealed. It is similar to Elemental Destruction, but not as reliable. While on the subject of Elementals, the word Elemental is going to be used as a tribal name. Many cards will be tagged as Elemental, which presumably will allow for cards that interact with them to be printed, along the same lines as Beast has currently.

      The image above only tells half of the story. After Pyros dies as a 6/6, it returns back to hand yet again as a 10/10 that costs 10! This mechanic might imply that there is a focus on value as opposed to tempo, although of course one card is a meaningless sample size! There could also be a Quest to play a certain number of Elemental cards in a game, although it seems unlikely that it would be a Mage Quest.

      Adapt is a new keyword, along the lines of discover. There are ten different powers to choose from. Taunt, Windfury, Divine Shield, Cannot be targeted, +3 Attack, Deathrattle: Summon two 1/1 Plants are the six shown in the video. We've also been warned that plants are not just plants, so we can only speculate on what a 1/1 Plant might do.

      One of the more interesting features of the new expansion is the Quest mechanic. Quests start in your opening hand and have a big reward for completion. It is displayed in the same place as Secrets, however both players can see the Quest, and how close it is to being completed.

      As you can see, the rewards are very powerful
      More reveals will be made on March 17th. Until then, we will just have to speculate as to what else lies in Un'Goro.

      Iksar has confirmed that the Matchmaking in Legend Ranks has been changed.
      As stated in our previous article, Legendary players have been noticing that in the last few days that they have been matched with players much closer to their own rank than usual. There was some confusion regarding this, as Iksar had not been made aware of the changes, but he has now confirmed that there are definitely changes in place.
      It is hard to precisely evaluate community feeling on the the new system, especially as I personally think they're a step in the right direction, but there are some players who are not keen on the changes. RayC and Xzirez have been the two highest profile players so far to disagree with the change. The issues that people against it have can be summarised as follows: Counter-Queuing: Many top Legends do not like counter-queuing, which is where you change your deck to try to counter your opponent. With the new system meaning you can often play the same person several times in a row, counter-queuing will become an important part of the game.
      Early Legend Advantage: People opposed to the changes claim that it overly favours the players who reach Legend early on. The older system made it easier to catch up at the end of the season.
      Win Trading: Due to the increased chance of playing against the same opponent, it is now easier to cover your tracks if you lose to a friend many times in a row to boost their ranking.
      There does seem to be a majority of players who support the new system however. The ladder system has been a cause of much debate for a long time now, and these changes, alongside the recent addition of ladder floors, seem to show that at the very least, ladder is currently a high priority for Blizzard to get right.
