kel'thuzad in a druid deck?

Anyone tried him yet? (Or will try him, as soon as you acquire him?)

What kind of deck would he work best in?
I'd imagine a taunt heavy druid deck probably?

Yep, taunt heavy ramp.

If you can get down, say, Loatheb or a Sunwalker, next turn Kel'Thuzad allows you to trade the mid cost minion and get it back.

Plus he is out of BGH range, and if they silence him - so what? you have a 6/8 body on the field.

Playing at rank 9, just crushed 2 priest with Kel'thuzad in my ramp druid deck.

This card has just revamped ramp Druid after two weeks of unfriendly meta.
It's really good, if you can loatheb+anything the turn before, as farq said, but also if you have any good board(especially with Caine and others hard-to-kill minions)

Cairne and Sludge Belcher will duplicate twice if you trade them with KT out, right?

Im going to swap my Ysera for KT tonight and give this bad boy a whirl.

Loved his emotes in single player btw - classy guy.!

What do you mean with "duplicate twice"? If you kill Cairne once while Kel is out, at the end of the turn you will have a Baine and a Cairne.

He meant:
Will duplicate twice meaning, that new Cairne will bring out a new Baine "again" (since Baine is also a 4/5, he used the word duplicate). That new Belcher will bring out a new token "again".

I'm using him in a bit of a midrange/ramp. He works best behind taunts.

He works best in a heavy combo deck so I'm also running Azure Drakes for card draw.

Rag was the only bgh target in my deck and was too rng dependant for my taste so i replaced him with KT. So far i'm not missing rag. He is much less situational than i assumed

I'm running a druid taunt deck and I actually never thought of putting Kel'Thuzad in until I read these forum posts. Bringing back all my taunts is just wonderful. Going to go put him in now

I'm in love with Kel, been using him in my dr00d's control deck since last night.

Played smartly, he is pretty much an autowin. your opponent HAS to remove him within 1-2 turns max, or it's over. You won.

Hi there !

since my first sight on KT, i want to use him in a deck, and drood ramp with taunt looks appropriate to put him in :)

But, i have to free a spot for this new card... here is my classic deck : http://www.hearthstone-decks.com/deck/voir/vous-ne-passerez-pas-8694 (sorry, cards name are in french) The first thing that come in my mind is to switch Ragna for KT, but i fear to miss the firelord ^^ Any advice ?

Probably the cairne or one of the sunwalkers/belchers depending on what you face most in ladder. Having deathrattle guys like cairne and belchers increases KT's effectiveness though, probably one of the sunwalkers.

or maybe an ancient of war ? i think he don't work very well with KT and repop as a vanilla 5/5.

How about replacing the two ancient of war for one KT and one sylvanna?

Yes dotc and aow repops as 4/4 and 5/5 so aow is the weak link if your first priority is KT synergy. I like running two aows though.

Played two hours yesterday with kel in my deck, i drew him two times (other than mulliging in opening hand) and i couldn't play him. didn't have a chance to even try it out.

Just the way the games were going in my ramp deck, i don think he would of been helpful.

Perhaps a token deck he is more helpful.

Also FYI, somebody did use Kel on me yesterday in a druid deck.

If you use kel and your ancient of war dies, ancient of war comes back as a 5/5 without taunt..I won the game because of that, if not, i would of lost.

I just had fun with him.

Baine
Cairne
Fuegan
Thallinos
KT

all up at the same time. Was hilarious looking.

Please forgive misspellings of card names.
