Im on rank 6-7 and all I meet are druids and I feel that I have to change deck to improve.
Best counter to druid decks.
Best counter to druids in my experience is Priest. They're just tedious to deal with when you have big creatures then shadow word death/ mind control comes out and neutralise your ironbark, and Keeper of the grove can be shadow word pain'd. I swapped sen'jin out for Yeti and play 4 attack 6 cost creatures just to play around shadow words, but I still lose to priests more often than any other classes.
Paladins are hard to beat as well for Druids. But when I get to late game and drop my big stompy minions that Paladins have trouble against, it's usually my win.
You generally don't want to play rush against Druids, who arguably is tied for best control with mages (Mages have better spells, Druids have more good minions)
Giant Warlocks are really bad matchups for Druids. The new Shaman deck that's being run like crazy is also a good matchup. Aggro decks are okay depending on draw rng.
01/29/2014 04:50 PMPosted by ErreiYeah I'm playing semi aggro/control lock now and its like 40% win chance against druid which sucks. Do you know if a real warrior (not reynad's) is a good match up for a druid?
I would say no. Druid has better card draw than warrior, and better creatures. No way the warrior can win the late game. And unless you are playing a deck like reynads you aren't gonna win early. Though druid does pretty well against the reynad deck too.
Shamans were one of my most fun encounters and I probably had a 50% winrate against them. I didn't have an issue with unbound elementals because I could take it out early, but the other elementals and removal were a big issue.
I don't have too big of an issue with Giant Warlock. I still run Black Knight and BGH, and I save my other removal if I can identify that it is a Giant Warlock early on.
What is the Handlock deck exactly? I've been hearing about it but I can't find any sort of decklist on here or Hearthpwn.
its really good against druid because of hex and Earth Shock. your cheap spells usually takes care of big stuff when they throw Innervate at you
you will have a headache vs hunters though since your hero power is useless. overall druid imo still the best control class op :)
but still its tedious and long, which in my opinion isn't really efficient for ranking up anyway
id rather risk it witha rush deck and concede if i aren't getting a ridiculously lucky card draw and then just go again. Short games the way to go
