Hearthstone: Spell Power Druid First Attempt

Hello everybody, Geek Generation here.

Swipe

For a long while, i’ve always believed that Druid’s Swipe with Spell Power (the correct name of the ability is actually Spell Damage -_-“) is a very powerful combination. And i still do. Anyway, i decided to try and make a Spell Damage Druid since Druid has so many spells that benefit from Spell Damage.

Moonfire Wrath Starfire

Starfall too if you have it.

The decklist is as follow:

2 x Innervate
2 x Moonfire
2 x Mark of the Wild
2 x Wrath
2 x Swipe
2 x Starfire

1 x Bloodmage Thalnos
2 x Kobold Geomancer
2 x Earthen Ring Farseer
2 x Keeper of the Grove
2 x Azure Drake
2 x Druid of the Claw
1 x Loatheb
2 x Sludge Belcher
1 x Ancient of Lore
2 x Ancient of War
1 x Kel’Thuzad

As it is now, the deck is not very good with a pretty low win percentage. A good speed bump against aggro deck is to play on turn 2 Kobold Geomancer -> Moonfire. But that’s a two card combo to draw from a narrow range of cards. A Kobold Geomancer by itself isn’t exactly a strong play.

The biggest problem is the deck’s horrendous mana curve. The best a Druid can do is to cast a single fatty every turn. But if the opponent manages to kill the fatty every turn, then there isn’t much you can do. There’s simply no way to turn the tempo around if the fatty does not live.

Mark of the Wild is also kind of bad as, without Haunted Creeper, there tend to be a lack of minions on board. Future iteration would probably see a shift in the mana curve.

  1. Try Shade of Naxxramas or Stranglethorn Tiger?

    • I had a second iteration that included all the mana acceleration cards, Wild Growth and Nourish. Working card draw in the late game really helped alot. Not sure what i took out to put those cards in.

      I haven’t played much with Stealth minions, so i don’t really know the value of the Stealth mechanic. Haven’t seen much of it around the ranks 20 to 15. Usually when i see it it’s Miracle Rogue or some Hunter Beast deck. I’ll give it a try, adding both the Shade and Tiger to see how it works out.
