(Day 2) So far, this deck has been working out pretty great for me. It's pretty crazy how easy it is to set up one combo or another. And I've used Floop even as an Arcane Tyrant for turns where I play something like spreading plague into tyrant into floop, for a free 3/4, which is not bad against aggro when all you're looking to do is stabilize and prevent them from winning. Taldaram is a must in my opinion. It's the combination of Floop, Taldaram, the Florist, and Biology project that make combos so easy to set up. Just make sure to play your biology project wisely (use it as an innvervate, never waste that extra mana crystal just to ramp. Even against aggro, it's risky if you don't have spreading plague in hand). Just make sure you don't go overbord on ramping and end up with an empty hand without UI to reload: It's ok to use that nourish for draw if your hand is small and you don't have UI, you have enough other ramp.

Example: https://hsreplay.net/replay/Jtfs4B53wM2zpg3MYGvm3h (One of my first games, extreme highroll! Ended on turn 6 with a double (I could have played a triple malygos) turn.)

To prove my loyalty to our impending druid overlords, I have done them the courtesy of theorycrafting their deck.

The core of the deck needs little explanation: Ramp, stall, draw. Equip twig, play maly, break twig, double swipe double moonfire, 30 damage. Gg. Weapon oozed? Found twig too late? Just stall and win cuz you're druid and you're better at armour than warrior anyway. Plus, maly double Moonfire is 12 damage anyway. But not only that, Dr. Boom has given us new toys that allow us to OTK even without the Twig!

So what new tributes do we bring to our druid overlords?

We bring Biology Project, allowing for even better ramping, even earlier Ultimate Infestations, earlier Spreading Plagues, earlier Malfurion the Pestilent. It also works as an Innervate!

We bring the Flobbidinous Floop, that allows you to play maly by itself on a turn. If they don't clear, gg. if they do clear, floop the next turn for a single Swipe and two Moonfires for 21 damage, or even a second Swipe is you have two Biology Projects in hand for 30 damage. You can even Floop the Dreampetal Florist if the first one missed the Malygos.

We bring Dreampetal Florist, that can make Malygos 2 mana if it's the only minion in hand, and there are very  few minions in this deck. With a 2 mana Malygos, double Swipe double Moonfire is possible on the same turn for 30 damage. If it doesn't land on Malygos, well a zero cost Prince Taldaram, 1 cost The Lich King, or free Flobbidinous Floop ain't too shabby. A free floop means a 30 damage combo with the floop plan, and a 1 mana taldaram is just pretty darn good.

We bring a cheaper sprint that also tutors. The super delicious Juicy Psychmelon will pull out that The Lich King, but more importantly, that Dreampetal Florist and Malygos. Ever been late in the game and you simply couldn't find that missing combo peice or combo enabler? Well,  if you can't draw into it, this fruit will do the job! Already drew into it? Then you won anyway, so who cares that this is a dead card.

I tremble before the overlords in uncertainty about these choices:

The oaken summons package was removed to make floop more consistent, but at what cost against aggro?

Ferocious Howl was removed since there seems to be enough draw and sustain, and this was the first thing I replaced to make space for the new cards. Without any three drops, I figured I would add Prince Taldaram. I'm not sure if this was the right decision.

I didn't include Alexstrasza because I needed space for the new cards, and this didn't seem that crucial with all the new backup plans for the otk, as well as the fact that it costs 9 mana, meaning you could draw this with the melon when you're really looking for Malygos.

I'm considering getting rid of Naturalize, but I'm hesitant. I know it's pretty crucial against big minions, but with Biology Project being able to ramp your opponent, maybe it's not the best to have two of.  I'm strongly considering Bloodmage Thalnos to replace it, because it's both card draw and spell damage, which might be important against aggro to enable better removal using Swipe and Moonfire, where the otk plan is not relevant anyway. Wrath is another consideration, but it seems slow and less flexible.

Please let me know what you think of my choices! Did I replace the wrong cards? Do I need more melons? Maybe Faceless Manipulator still deserved a place in the deck? Let me know!
