Table of Contents

Pro player Mr Yagut reached Rank #1 Legend with this build of Jade Druid by focusing on beating the metagame at the time, which was largely comprised of Highlander Priest and CubeLock decks. He did this by adding tech cards such as Spellbreaker at the expense of early defense in the form of Wrath.

3. Comments On Mr. Yagut's Jade Druid

This list does not use Wrath or Fandral Staghelm.

One of the problems that Jade Druid suffers from is the difficulty in beating Cube Warlork archetypes due to the never-ending array of Taunts at the Warlock's disposal. Voidlord gives the Cubelock all the time it needs to set up defense, and as Jade Druid decks win almost entirely by hitting you with minions, the Voidwalkers generated make dealing damage too difficult. Mr. Yagut solved this issue by playing double Spellbreaker. This serves not only to remove the Taunt of the Voidlord, and stop it from spawning Voidwalkers, but also to stop the abilities of Possessed Lackey and Carnivorous Cube. An Acidic Swamp Ooze is also included to deal with Skull of the Man'ari.

This variant of the deck also has ways to deal with other strong decks at the time of Yagut's climb. Branching Paths and Earthen Scales help with Highlander Priest archetypes, while Acidic Swamp Ooze and the Scales help with Secret Mage decks. When playing the deck, try to hold onto Earthen Scales until you can get as much Armor as possible from it by playing it onto the biggest Jade Golem that you can.

4. Pros and Cons of Mr. Yagut's Jade Druid

This deck is stronger than usual against Highlander Priest, Control Warlock, and Secret Mage archetypes. It contains extra Armor and Silence effects to be in a good spot against those decks.

The variant suffers against Aggro decks, due to the lack of Wrath in the early-game. This makes it more reliant on Lesser Jasper Spellstone and Spreading Plague than usual.

5. Quick Mulligan for Mr. Yagut's Jade Druid

You should generally mulligan for the following cards:

The rest of the mulligan is very dependent on what you are playing against. Lesser Jasper Spellstone can be kept against particularly aggressive decks and the main guide should be consulted for other mulligan combinations.
