Hearthstone Druid Minions and Spells

Recommended Posts

There's at least one word missing in Claw's Contructed Play section. The first sentence is "Claw can be great if the meta game is extremely aggressive, especially if are using Wild Pyromancer as well." Considering the card, I think it's supposed to be "you", but less experienced players could maybe think you were talking about the meta using Wild Pyromancer a lot.

I would like to talk about how you talk about Beast Druid in Druid of the Flame's description and also Druid of the Fang's. I understand it mostly says that Beast Druid is totally not worth it, but I'd argue that one can totally make one since the release of TGT. There's enough interesting cards to make something interesting with Beast synergy in Druid and I feel like those descriptions might steer people away from it instead of encouraging them to try it with good synergy cards.

EDIT: You also say something very similar in Savage Combatant's description and I'd like to add that even LoE adds another reason to play Beast Druid with the fantastic Mounted Raptor.

The main problem is that the synergy is not strong enough. You only have Wildwalker and Druid of the Fang. For example, Mech Mage has Mechwarper, Blastmage, Cogmaster, Technician and sometimes even Clockwork Knight. That is what I call synergy. Having two cards that synergise is not enough.

Well Stablemaster is a Hunter card(but there's also Wildwalker and Knight of the Wild) and I don't think you can compare Mech Mage to this, there's just Blastmage that's a Mage exclusive and you could totally make a Mech Druid with the same cards!

What I'm trying to say is that you don't have to put shitty Beasts to be able to make those cards work! You now have good beasts! Savage Combatant is good, Mounted Raptor is good, Druid of the Flame is good, Druid of the Claw is good, Druid of the Saber is good! Malorne is crazy good! Aside from that, you could experiment a little, nobody said that YOU have to ramp you could just curve out with more excellent Beasts like Haunted Creeper(Ironbeak Owl possibly if you REALLY want to not have Keeper of the Grove but I wouldn't recommend it), Tomb Spider, Stranglethorn Tiger, Stampeding Kodo, Mukla's Champion, Captured Jormungar, The Beast. King Mukla can be good if you can apply enough pressure. You could use Fossilized Devilsaur if you want more huge taunts besides Ironbark Protector... There's enough material there! Okay, BGH whatever you want to say that people are using because of the meta. I mean, If they use BGH on a big thingy and you play another, and another, or you just have so many beasts... That's a valid concept to me! I know Force of Nature + Savage Roar is incredibly stupid. That doesn't mean Beast Druid isn't good. It's just not that.

Oh, yeah, I meant Wildwalker, not Stablemaster, sorry! The Knight of The WIld could be good, but if you get a bad draw, he won't be played before turn 6 anyway.

Yes, the beast cards are great, but as long as the synergy cards aren't that strong, you shouldn't focus on the synergy itself and rather build a midrange deck with good cards (and some of them will definitely be beasts). The problem with playing a big thing after another is that if you get BGHed once, you lose tempo (except for Boom, yay) and druids can't play from behind the board. This is one of the reasons why Ramp Druid plays without BGH targets.

Like I said, no need to ramp. Just because ramp Druid is popular doesn't mean you can't try something else

Just because Beast Druid exists doesn't mean you should play it. It is not a competitive deck, at least not as competitive as Ramp druid.

My original complaint was about not discouraging people that wanted to try it. Because it is quite good now. It is not the best, but you don't expect people playing on a budget to actually use the best deck either. I mean I get it that it's weird to want to use really shitty cards like Dalaran Mage. But Druid of the Flame isn't a bad card and a Druid Beast deck is not a bad deck either. Sure you won't explode ladder and crush everyone on legend, but is this a requirement to give tips about it?

I have a guide up for Beast Druid in the Unique decks section, so i'm not really sure what your criticism is.

 

We're not exactly dealing with statements like "You freaking noob! Why would you even think Beast Druid would be a thing! Learn to play before you dare read our site!"

The statements are like "but these decks have so far not proven to be successful." and "Druid Beast decks are also currently a long way from being viable." which are just accurate statements. Then on top of that, I have a guide published for people that want to experiment with it anyway.

So...yeah?

Well, I actually do think that players on budget who visit sites such as this want a good deck, instead of spending dust on decks that do not work as well as the "meta decks". Also, the price difference between Sottle's fast druid and Beast druid is 400 dust. The difference is low enough for newer players to play the meta decks instead. 
As I said previously, the beasts are good, it's the synergy that is not good enough. Druid of the Flame is played in midrange and so are Savage Combatant and Druid of the Claw. You can find Druids of the Saber and Mounted Raptors in aggro. The beast tag just doesn't matter, same as Azure Drake's dragon tag. Dragon decks weren't played either. Although there was some synergy, it just wasn't strong enough (but that got changed with TGT), same as Beast Druid.
 

I have a guide up for Beast Druid in the Unique decks section, so i'm not really sure what your criticism is.


I am not criticising your deck, all I am saying that beast tag is not strong enough to be considered meta. That it is and will stay for some time with the Unique decks.

I'm sorry, I just wanted to give some input, but if you all think it's fine, we're having a discussion. It just feels like it's pushing away from the card rather than actual tips on how to use it like the description says it does, but it is my opinion.

Um, why does the "druid" pictured in the artwork seem to be wearing shaman 25 man T9 Heroic? Seems like a pretty massive mistake for the QC team, or am I just missing something obvious lol.

It would be nice to know which card exactly you're reffering to. Also, a lot of different clothing look alike and maybe the guy making the artwork just felt like it was better like this... I don't think anyone here can really answer that... Unless the guy that made the artwork is here, which I doubt a lot.

I think it might be interesting to tell people which ramp cards will give them excess mana when played at 10 crystals and which ones won't. I didn't check all the cards, but Astral Communion doesn't(not that it really affects the card's playability in that specific case).

Also, in the Arena section of Savagery, Mark of Nature, Astral Communion, Poison Seeds, Soul of the Forest and Tree of Life, you might wanna take into account that they can't be drafted.

AC does give you the draw card, as does Wild Growth. If it is a spell effect that grants a permanent crystal, it will give you Excess Mana.

I'll note down your other points.

No, not all cards that give permanent crystals give Excess Mana at 10 crystals. If I'm not mistaken, only Wild Growth and Astral Communion do. It was a suggestion as I've seen my opponents sometimes picking the crystal option with Mire Keeper at 10 crystals even though it doesn't give Excess Mana and I thought it wasn't that much a useless information in a guide aiming at teaching how to best use the card...

I've made a note of it for Sottle, but let me correct myself slightly:

If there is no other effect on the card that can be generated and it is a spell, it will generate excess mana. Darnassus Aspirant, Mire Keeper can still do things when played on Turn 10 that are not related to the mana increase. AC, Wild Growth do absolutely nothing but generate crystals, so they grant EM.

I'm not sure about this, but it says in the Arena section of Mark of the Lotus that, since you usually only play one minion per turn, you are "likely" to find value out of the card. Isn't it the opposite? I could be wrong on that one.

 

The second sentence in the Arena section of Jade Blossom should be improved because it is quite difficult to read. It is possible to understand but I'm fairly sure it is worded incorrectly and could be faster to understand

I find it very easy to understand. Do not draft ramp in general, but draft this ramp if you have jade golem cards. Is there a specific different wording you'd suggest?

It's not particularly difficult to understand, just difficult to read. Does removing "the card" between "Jade Golem" and "justifies it" preserves the intended meaning? English not being my main language I sometimes have difficulties that might not actually apply to the average English-reader.

It is quite minor, but there's an apostrophe missing in the General Comments section of Lunar Vision. "Being able to draw 2 minions effectively reduces the cards Mana cost to 1"

It's sad to see that you guys consider Savagery one of the weakest cards in the game. I am playing both Bite and Feral Rage in my Druid Jade deck and time after time Savagery allows me to turn the board into a winning state, often even winning me the game with either double Bite/Feral Rage or one of both, using Savagery to eliminate a big taunt, to have a full blown attack at face.

Combined with Gadgetzan Auctioneer it also enables you to draw through your deck even quicker and get to the point where you have only Jade Idol's left in 12-15 moves. It answers cards such as Ragnaros the Firelord and against the current aggressive pirate decks, it allows you to kill 2 minions from your hero, giving you full dominance over the board.

      Doom in the Tomb is now live and the update comes with all-new 1,000 Win Portrait Rewards and 23 cards that are temporarily stepping out of Wild back into Standard. Note that the cards will remain in Standard until the next major update and exact end dates and times will be announced in the weeks ahead.
      Blizzard (Source)
      A new Hearthstone update has just arrived, featuring the “Doom in the Tomb” Hallow’s End event, Wild cards temporarily returning to Standard, portrait rewards for dedicated Hearthstone players, and much more!
      New Event - Doom in the Tomb!

      Pack your torches and latch your helmets, Heroes. The Headless Horseman has infiltrated Uldum’s deserted desert tombs, outfitted himself with powerful relics, and has set his sights on besting the battling Leagues! The new Doom in the Tomb event starts today, October 8, and will last until October 30. Here’s what’s in store:

      Week 1: Doom in the Tomb, Part 1
      Gear up with your favorite member from the League of E.V.I.L and delve into the Haunted Temple, full of the baddest bosses in Uldum! The clock is running, too – race to set the record for the fastest Temple run! Rewards Complete a run in under 1 hour and earn a Rastakhan’s Rumble Card Pack. Complete a run in under 40 minutes to earn a Golden Common Ancient Mysteries!
      Week 2: Doom in the Tomb, Part 2
      E.V.I.L has their turn, and now it’s up to Reno and the League of Explorers to join the run and flex their Temple diving speed. New enemies and challenges await!

      Rewards Complete a run in under 1 hour and receive a Golden Common Temple Berserker Complete a run in under 40 minutes to earn a Golden Rare Generous Mummy
      Week 3: The Haunted Carousel
      Get ready for the big mix-up! In this Tavern Brawl, you’ll need to strategize around minions constantly rotating board positions – all while controlling the Horseman’s time-shifted Dreadsteeds!

      Rewards Summon 100 Dreadsteeds to earn a Rise of Shadows Card Pack Dual-Class Heroes

      The Dual-Class Arena Hallow’s Eve dress-up party is back! When you start an Arena run during the Doom in the Tomb event, you’ll choose a Hero, then a Hero Power, and card offerings will feature cards from BOTH of those classes, in addition to neutral cards.
      Players who have an active Arena run when this begins will have their current run ended and will receive an Arena Ticket as compensation. To ensure that players have a chance to try out this devilish dual-class deck-building dress-up party, anyone who logs in during each of the first two weeks will receive one Arena Ticket per week! This event coincides with our normal Arena rotation. The new Arena sets in rotation are as follows: Curse of Naxxramas Goblins vs. Gnomes Blackrock Mountain The Grand Tournament League of Explorers Whispers of the Old Gods One Night in Karazhan Mean Streets of Gadgetzan Journey to Un'Goro Knights of the Frozen Throne Kobolds & Catacombs Hex & Flex Bundles

      Hex Bundle
      If you thought the League of E.V.I.L. was securely under wraps, think again! Arch-Villain Rafaam has leveraged his lackeys and put together the Hex Bundle, 20 Rise of Shadows card packs and a random Rise of Shadows Legendary card at the discounted price of $19.99 USD. Flex Bundle
      Reno’s vest just doesn’t have room for bulging biceps AND stacks of card packs. That’s why he’s whipped together the Flex Bundle! Get 20 Saviors of Uldum packs and a random Saviors of Uldum Legendary card at the discounted price of $19.99 USD. Standard Shake-Up

      Starting with today’s patch and lasting until our next major update, 23 cards from across Hearthstone history are temporarily stepping out of Wild and back into Standard. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get straight into the action. These cards will be considered "event" cards, which essentially means that they're temporary copies and not permanent additions to your collection. Even if you already own the cards you'll still receive these event copies, and when the event ends they'll disappear.
      IMPORTANT NOTE: While these cards were re-introduced during the Doom in the Tomb event, they will remain in Standard past the event's conclusion, until the launch of our next major update. More details will be shared, including exact end dates and times, in the coming weeks.
      Card List: Druid: Astral Communion Kun the Forgotten King Mage: Babbling Book Flamewaker Paladin: Mysterious Challenger Avenge Hunter: Lock and Load Call of the Wild Shaman: Evolve Thing from Below Rogue: Shaku, the Collector Swashburglar Priest: Lightbomb Vol'jin Warlock: Imp Gang Boss Renounce Darkness Warrior: Varian Wrynn Bloodhoof Brave Neutral: N'Zoth, the Corruptor Sylvanas Windrunner Ragnaros the Firelord The Curator Emperor Thaurissan 1,000 Win Portrait Rewards

      The time has come for dedicated Hearthstone players to flex their Hero mastery! We’re introducing new portraits earned by achieving 1,000 Ranked or Arena wins with each class. Wins earned before this update goes live will retroactively count towards these totals.

      Blizzard today announced a new event coming to the game on October 8. It's called Doom in the Tomb. Check out what's in store for Hearthstone this month!
      UPDATE
      Placeholder for tweet 1180177096972222464 Blizzard (Source)
      Legends have told of dangers lurking within the Haunted Temple of Uldum and the grand ancient treasures they conceal. Of course, “treasure” was all anyone had to mention to get Reno and Rafaam on board, and now their sights are set on acquiring the temple’s powerful artifacts for their own campaigns!
      It won’t be an easy task, though. While our Heroes and Villains battle to push deeper through the Haunted Temple, the Headless Horseman has resorted to a nefarious contingency and opened a sealed sarcophagus full of WILD terrors. Now it will be up to you to aid the conquests of good, or E.V.I.L, in a race to uncover the tomb’s precious secrets and escape the doom in the tomb!

      Step into the Haunted Tomb
      The spooky spelunking adventures begin at 10:00 AM PT on October 8 and end at 9:00 AM PT on October 30 – three weeks packed full of new activities to participate in:

      Unique Tavern Brawls

      Treasures from the Tomb!

      23 cards from across Hearthstone history have been unsealed from Wild and unleashed by the Headless Horseman!

      Today we get a look at some of the smaller stuff coming up in Hearthstone's future, including new events like dual-class arenas, 23 old cards returning to standard (Ragnaros and N'zoth were mentioned), new class portraits for 1000 wins, and plenty of quality of life improvements!
      Behind the Doors (source)
      While we’re constantly recruiting lackeys, tinkering with experimental tech, and delving into dusty tombs to bring you new Hearthstone expansions and Adventures, we’re also hard at work on some awesome, albeit less flashy, new stuff. In this blog we’ll shine a light on some of the smaller, but still exciting new features, events, and changes coming to Hearthstone in the near future.

       
      Adding More Events

      After the overwhelmingly positive response to the recent Fire Fest-E.V.I.L. event, we’re looking for more opportunities to introduce even more large-scale in-game events with rewards, themed Tavern Brawls, and changes that could temporarily (or permanently!) create fun new Hearthstone experiences for players.
      We’re starting off with a new event in just a couple weeks featuring Dungeon Run-inspired Tavern Brawls, dual-class Arenas, Legendary quest rewards, and some meta-shifting changes outlined in the “Shaking up Standard Play” section below.
      We’ll have more to share on this sensationally spooky event on October 4, but in the meantime . . . try not to lose your head!
       

      Shaking up Standard Play

      Now that the Saviors of Uldum Standard ladder experience has solidified, we think it’s a great time to throw a wrench or two (or twenty-three) in the gears. We’re going to be pulling some of the most popular and game-changing cards from across Hearthstone history, including
      Ragnaros the Firelord and N'Zoth, the Corruptor, out of Wild and dropping them back into Standard for a limited time. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get them into the action.
      We’ll be sharing more details (including the full list of 23 cards) in a blog update on October 4. Stay tuned!

      1,000 Win Class Portraits
      Looking ahead, we want to continue celebrating personal successes and milestones for all you dedicated Hearthstone players. Our next major update will introduce some really cool new portraits that you can earn by earning 1,000 wins with each class. Wins earned before this update goes live will retroactively count towards these totals. Take a look at a couple of examples below and start stacking up those wins!



      Quality of Life Improvements
       
      Alternate Search Terms
      We want it to be easier to quickly find the cards you’re looking for while deckbuilding, so we’re adding alternate search terms for some hard-to-type cards. We’ll be adding common misspellings and simplified versions of leetspeak card names (found on some Mech minions). For example, searching “snip” or “snap” will now show you SN1P-SN4P. While this feature will only be enabled for a few commonly misspelled cards at first, we’ll be able to add even more alternate search terms as needed.
      This feature will also support languages other than English. For example, SN1P-SN4P in Latin American Spanish is “CL1C-CL4C”, so searching “clic” would return the expected results. Quest Changes
      While not included in our next major update, here’s a preview of some of the changes we’re making to quests a little further down the line.
      We’re cutting some of the less popular daily quests and tuning down some of their requirements to make them quicker and easier to complete. We’ll also be adding some new quests to the pool to mix things up! We split most daily quests into two buckets: Easy (50g) and Slightly More Difficult (60g). Rerolling a Slightly More Difficult (60g) quest (like Play 10 Beasts) always gives you an Easy (50g) quest, so players can be guaranteed to get an Easy quest every day if they want. We love  Murlocs and Pirates as much as anyone, but it should be your choice if you decide to complete their quests.
      We’re excited to be bringing these new features, events, and other changes to Hearthstone soon. Please let us know what you think on social media or the official Hearthstone forums. Until then, we’ll see you in the Tavern!
