1. General Comments
Ancient of Lore is a strong value minion. It will usually be used to draw cards to make sure that Druid decks do not run out of resources, but it can also be used to gain life against aggressive decks.
2. Constructed Play
Ancient of Lore is nowhere near as much of a staple as it once was in Druid decks since it was nerfed in the Whispers of the Old Gods expansion. However, it is still a consideration for your deck as it can be used both to cycle deeper into your deck in order to maintain your initiative, or to stabilise in the late-game against aggressive decks by gaining life.
Ancient of Lore is a strong minion in the Arena. The combination of drawing a card and playing a sizable 5/5 body onto the board is a very powerful one, since usually, cards that allow you to draw will cause a significant drop in Tempo to do so.
