Hearthstone: Spellpower Druid, 3rd iteration.

Hello everybody, Geek Generation here.

Shade_of_Naxxramas

I tried adding Shade of Naxxramas and i liked it alot. There isn’t much stuff around that can counter the Shades. The only ones i saw were Mass Dispel, Flare. Even dealing damage to all minions like Consecrate, Hellfire sometimes doesn’t work because i tend to play around these cards and playing the Shade only when i can bump it with a Mark of the Wild.

Shade of Naxxramas brings to the Druid table something neat. Playing it early forces control decks to adopt an aggro stance, something those decks are not built for. Against zoo-ish decks, they tend not to be as valuable. But they’ll serve up as meat for damage spells that would’ve gone to your face. Shades of Naxxramas work like soulfire magnets.

2 x Innervate
2 x Moonfire
2 x Mark of the Wild
2 x Wild Growth
2 x Wrath
2 x Swipe
2 x Nourish

1 x Bloodmage Thalnos
2 x Kobold Geomancer
2 x Shade of Naxxramas
2 x Chillwind Yeti
2 x Keeper of the Grove
2 x Azure Drake
2 x Druid of the Claw
1 x Loatheb
1 x Stampeding Kodo
1 x The Black Knight

I’ve taken out the 7 mana slow pokes to bring in the Shades of Naxxramas, Chillwind Yetis and Wild Growths. Since i took out Earthen Ring Farseers and Sludge Belchers, i need to test more to see if the deck can make a stand against aggro decks. But the deck itself has become more aggro, and i kind of like it. It’s working less like a Miracle Druid and more like a mid-range beatdown.

Why is it called Miracle Rogue in the first place?

On a side note, i totally cannot remember the names Earthen Ring Farseer and Sludge Belcher. All i remembered was their stats and what they do. Frankly, i don’t even remember what the cards’ art depict..

Anyway, as a result of the shift in the mana curve, there is not longer a need to hit 7 mana quickly, Nourish is no longer played for mana crystals. It’s always played for card draw. While the card draw is good, sometimes, it’s just costs too much mana. I’m thinking for the fourth iteration, i’ll swap one Nourish out for a Gadgetzan.

Geek Generation out.
