3. Comments On The Variation

This variant aims to use Jungle Giants Quest reward, Barnabus the Stomper, to reduce the cost of all minions to 0 and enable huge amounts of burst damage using a combination of Malygos, Faceless Manipulator, Ixlid, Fungal Lord, and Moonfire.

This variant relies heavily on using Cursed Disciples to complete the Quest due to the Deathrattle effect causing it to count twice towards the completion of the Quest. As Cursed Discipline is the only minion that costs 4 Mana or less in the deck, Oaken Summons can also be used to pull Cursed Disciple from the deck and provide a lot more consistency.

Corridor Creeper acts as another minion to help with easy completion of the Jungle Giants Quest due to getting cheaper throughout the game. The combination of Cursed Disciple and Corridor Creeper will often be enough to complete the Quest, however Ixlid, Fungal Lord can also be played in combination with either of these minions to summon an additional copy to help towards completion of the Quest where necessary.

Where possible, you should try and hold off using your powerful card draw effects, such as Nourish and Ultimate Infestation, as long as possible. This is because Barnabus the Stomper will only reduce the cost of minions in your deck and not those in hand, so it is better to play your card draw after the Cost reduction has taken place.

The deck contains a large number of combo pieces that can be used to finish off opponents, allowing you to be quite flexible with their usage. The most important part of combos is Malygos, which can be used in combination with Faceless Manipulator or Ixlid, Fungal Lord to generate additional copies for even more Spell damage. Moonfire can always be used to deal the final damage due to costing 0 Mana, however it is also frequently possible to add in Swipe if you manage to reduce the cost of Malygos with Barnabus the Stomper. Finally, Alexstrasza can be used to deal a significant amount of damage to opponents before you start hitting them with spells. Alexstrasza can either be used a turn prior to your combo to soften opponents up, or if it has been reduced to 0 Mana, then it can be played in the same turn as Malygos to help bust down unsuspecting opponents.

3.1. Pros and Cons

This combo variant of Quest Druid is excellent at bursting down unsuspecting Control and combo decks that put on minimal pressure while you complete the Quest. However, the lack of early-game board presence can make it harder to deal with aggressive decks.

3.2. Quick Mulligan Guide

In addition to keeping Jungle Giants in your opening hand, you should look for a combination of Mana-acceleration such as Wild Growth and Jade Blossom and your cards that aid completion of the Quest such as Oaken Summons and Corridor Creeper. Additionally, if you keep Oaken Summons in your opening hand, you should never keep Cursed Disciple.
