Naga Ramp Druid Deck Mulligan Guide

As a Ramp deck, Naga Druid requires early Mana acceleration in order to access its powerful, more expensive cards. The primary focus of the mulligan should be to find cards to aid this.

  • General Mulligan (keep regardless of what your opponent is playing)Dozing Kelpkeeper, Jerry Rig Carpenter, Wild Growth, and Wildheart Guff.
  • Mulligan against Aggro (also keep if you think you are playing against an aggressive deck) — No further cards required.
  • Mulligan against Control (also keep if you think you are playing against a slow deck)Nourish.

Naga Ramp Druid Deck Strategy

The ideal Ramp Druid early game curve should look the same regardless of matchup, Dozing Kelpkeeper followed by Jerry Rig Carpenter, Wild Growth and then Wildheart Guff or Nourish for 2 additional Mana Crystals. If you are missing any of these cards, which is likely the case, you can make use of any other cards to fill out your curve, such as Aquatic Form and Moonlit Guidance to find any cards you are missing, or Wrath to slow down your opponent.

After the early game, which is around 7 Mana Crystals for Ramp Druid, you should begin looking to replenish your hand with Miracle Growth or Nourish for card draw, while making use of your Guff Hero Power to gain additional Mana if possible. If your opponent is beginning to build up a board, you can alternatively play Scale of Onyxia to slow down their board instead.

As you enter the late game, you can begin looking for opportunities to explode onto the board, potentially threatening lethal against your opponent. This can be done by using Oracle of Elune paired with Naga Giants, which will be free if you have spent 20 Mana on spells. Ivus, the Forest Lord can additionally be thrown in if you have an excess of Mana, giving you an additional 2 Divine Shield and Rush minions. While this combination of cards can obliterate many opponents, if you anticipate your opponent having a full board clear, like Twisting Nether, consider splitting your aggression over multiple turns to ensure some of your minions stick to the board.

Against Aggro, getting any minions to stick to the board will usually be enough to turn games in your favour, so try to get your Naga Giants into play as soon as they are almost free. If you wait too long, you are will be likely to take critical damage from your opponent's aggression before you can get minions into play.

Against Control, be careful about committing too many minions to the board at once to avoid being punished by board clears. If your opponent managed to remove all of your large threats, you can finish up by using Kazakusan to repopulate your deck with powerful Treasures to close out the game.
