Druid is my favorite class in Hearthstone right now and it saddens me greatly to see it so unpopular and misunderstood.
Since my druid deck got me to top 50 (EU) this week I thought I might share it for those looking for advice or to debate its strengths and weaknesses with the more advanced players.
Before I go into details I'll tell you the main appeal to this deck:
-It wins almost all the time against hunters UTH (thanks to armor, heal and taunting druids of the claw)
-Same thing and same reason (minus taunt, plus charge) for frost mages
-It wins almost all the time against priest, only by letting them draw to death though, control vs control can be a pain.
-It's very solid against super aggro, such as the rogue and warlock decks that dominate the Managrind tournaments. These match ups are not easy though, but at least you've got a fair shot!
-Nobody expects Druids, there's always an element of surprise!
Here is the decklist:
A few notes
-As you can see the deck has a little draw, enough really considering it's high curve, no Nourrish though as it is too slow for the meta I find.
-4 Charge minions to avoid the perma-frost nightmare against control mages.
-Naturalize is good as a one off, use it on Yseras and such. It's also the best card ever against priest. It literally wins me 90% of my match-ups against them, draw them to death!
-There is a little bit of Spell Power in there, use it mainly for your AOE spells, it gets very nasty very fast
-I often hear people belittling Sylvanas, don't listen to that nonsense, she's insane. Just don't let her get mind-controlled, that's awkward!
-Farseer, claw, bite and ancient of lore can all be a form of heal. You WILL need it in certain match-ups to avoid getting in the pyro-range or to recover from the first aggro wave after you've wiped it.
-Cards that could be swapped for something else imo: Bite and Starfire
-Good cards for your opening hand: claw, faerie (or Ooze), wrath, keeper of the grove. Against aggro Swipe is also very cool to have right away, against priests and control Twilight Drake instead.
Hope this will help new druids and that experienced ones will give me brilliant ideas to improve it!
