Mire Keeper — Druid Card

Table of Contents

Mire Keeper is a Druid-only minion. This card can be obtained from Whispers of the Old Gods packs. Below the card images, you will find explanations to help you use the card optimally in every game mode of Hearthstone.

1. General Comments

Mire Keeper is in keeping with Druid's theme of being able to ramp, and has the added benefit of a choice to create a minion instead. This means that if the Mire Keeper is drawn late in the game, it is still able to provide some value.

2. Constructed Play

In Constructed, Mire Keeper often fits nicely on curve to keep the ramp coming through the mid-game. Ramping to expensive minions with Wild Growth, Nourish, and Innervate has been a popular strategy throughout Druid's history. Ramping has become even more popular with the introduction of Ultimate Infestation in the Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion. Ultimate Infestation is not only a powerful card to play as early as possible, but the cards drawn mean that it replaces any card disadvantage accrued in the process of ramping.

3. Arena

In Arena, Mire Keeper's versatility is key to making it a good card. It has good enough stats split between the two minions to be perfectly acceptable on 4 Mana, and its ability to ramp into the late game, without having to dedicate a specific slot in the deck to that ability, can be of use in heavier drafts, or with clunky opening hands.
