3. Comments On Saftall's Taunt Druid

This variant takes the shell of a Ramp Druid and swaps out the big threats for a more token approach. It relies exclusively on Taunt minions, using Druid of the Swarm and Crypt Lord to create a cheap board presence where necessary.

The core strength from this variant comes from Spreading Plague. If you are patient enough to be able to get a decent number of minions from the card it is possible to create a board capable of winning the game. You should aim to combine spreading plague with buff cards like Strongshell Scavenger and Mark of the Lotus in the same turn to gain maximum value.

As there are not many big threats to spent Mana on each turn, this variant uses two copies of Ultimate Infestation. It should be used whenever it is safe to do so and you have room in your hand for 5 more cards. This will greatly increase the consistency of the combos the deck can pull off in addition to how fast they can be played.

4. Saftall's Taunt Druid Pros and Cons

The use of 2 copies of Ultimate Infestation makes this variant very fast to play. It is able to consistently draw the cards to pull off powerful combos each game.

The variant is highly dependent on Spreading Plague it is significantly weaker against archetypes that do not play many minions, like Freeze Mage. In these situations a more standard build of Ramp Druid is stronger where there are more proactive plays available.
