Aggro Druid Archetype Guide

Last updated on Apr 11, 2018 at 22:35 by Kat 13 comments

Table of Contents

Aggro Druid is a very aggressive archetype that aims to flood the board and swiftly kill opponents before they are able to get control of the board.

Druid also has incredibly powerful tools that can take full advantage of strong board positions and allow them to snowball rapidly out of control using cards like Power of the Wild and Branching Paths. To end the game, Aggro Druid decks often use Savage Roar as a cheap source of burst damage when there are many minions in play.

Below, you will find link to our deck lists for Aggro Druid, starting with our featured deck, which we consider the most common variant.

Living Mana Aggro Druid Deck is a fairly standard variant of Aggro Druid. It plays the cheapest minions to flood the board as fast as possible to get the maximum value from Power of the Wild and Branching Paths. If early aggression fails to be sufficient, Living Mana is available to flood the board again and give a second wind.

Finja Beast Druid Deck takes a slower approach to Aggro Druid and uses Beast synergies as the foundation for the deck. It trades away a significant portion of early-game strength in favour of a consistently strong board presence throughout the game. This variant also takes advantage of the power of Finja, the Flying Star to populate the board in addition to the The Curator as strong card draw due to the Beasts, Dragons, and Murlocs available.

Wild Aggro Beast Druid Deck is a Midrange version of Aggro Druid designed to curve out using the most powerful minions in each Mana slot.

Cheap Wild Aggro Beast Druid Deck is a great starting point for players who wish to learn Aggro Druid and are on a budget. This variant cuts the more expensive cards in favour of cheaper ones while aiming to be as competitive as possible.

1. Aim of Aggro Druid

Aggro Druid decks aim to explode onto the board as early as possible and quickly snowball out of control before opponents are able to get comfortable. Despite being one of the most aggressive archetypes in the game, maintaining control of the board is a high priority, making the most efficient trades possible. Making efficient trades allows for the strongest possible board position for cards like Power of the Wild. Furthermore, dealing direct damage to opponents is a very low priority as most games are won by bursting down opponents using Savage Roar with a strong board position.

2. Aggro Druid's Strengths and Weaknesses

The strength and weaknesses of Aggro Druid come down the deck itself and its dependency on draws. With the correct draws, Aggro Druid can be almost impossible to beat due to the explosive starts from numerous cheap minions and the speed with which games can be won. Similarly, if a good board position cannot be developed within the first 2 turns then it is very difficult to get into a strong board position as opponents will have access to more powerful minions and spells to fight for the board, making it almost impossible to win.

3. Key Cards and Crafting for Aggro Druid

Living Mana is the most important card for Aggro Druid decks, if played on Turn 5 or later, it guarantees at least 5 minions for a single card which is excellent for solidifying a board position or for fighting back onto the board after a poor early-game.

Vicious Fledgling is another extremely powerful card in Aggro Druid. Although it does not directly fit the usual board flooding strategy, if it is played early or after a strong opener it can quickly snowball out of control and win games on its own if you can pull off multiple direct attacks.

The minions in Aggro Druid are quite flexible, and there are multiple spells that are great at helping improve your board positions, such as Branching Paths, and Power of the Wild.
