This is the newer Version of our all well known "Midrange Combo Druid"
Amaz came up with this list on stream from his close mate "Amnesia".
So here are the few facts, altering this deck from past decklists:
With the addition of Darnassus Aspirant the Druid gets another Tool to curve out even nicer and get better Tempo. And thats the Main difference: We cut our Shade of Naxxramas, making Savage Roar the only 3-Drop and therefore add an additional 4-drop in the Vanilla Chillwind Yeti with very strong statline. So usually with this deck you should be able to put a 4-drop at turn 3 or earlier.
This makes the deck even faster. With our double Combo the enemy has to worry even more about death.
The Addition of a Living Roots give us a tool to fight early aggression such as Knife Juggler etc. while also giving the chance to add additional 2 direct damage to the face after combo for a 16 Health Lethal turn 10.
The deck is working pretty well so far - as usual - since it is around for ages and likely always will be.
Some "tech choices" :
Amaz played 2x Savage Combatant instead of the Chillwind Yeti (so thats another 4-drop to consider) making the hero power more reliable as a removal for Piloted Shredder etc.
UPDATE(26.8.15): So as the first official Tournament comes up with Archon Teamleague we saw this deck played by 3 Teams in Archon, Nihilum and Tempostorm
Coming up with this, the "new" 4-drop Spot is contested by different Creatures:
As mentioned before Savage Combatant is the most aggressive Variation (played by Amaz and Hyped)
Lining up the most solid is the Chillwind Yeti
the more combo oriented is Violet Teacher as an option )as played by ThijsNL
Also you can add Sen'jin Shieldmasta as the most defensive Variation
UPDATE(28.08.15): I decided to cut the Chillwind Yeti and one Darnassus Aspirant for two Violet Teacher and a Mulch. Working pretty good so far. I voted Mulch over Big Game Hunter due to Violet Teacher Value and more Diversity
As Always there is the possibility to add Harrison Jones, but the meta swapped away from patrons while everyone is trying out new stuff (mostly Dragon related lists right now from what i see)
You can also alter an Azure Drake for a Silvanas Windrunner [against control], Sludge Belcher /Ancient of War [Against creature heavy aggro]
Other possibilities, although slow and therefore not recommended that much are Ragnaros the Firelord and Cenarius
So general Gameplan in few sentences is:
1. Ramp up early with Wild Groth, Darnassus Aspirant and Innervate
2. Curve out nicely putting huge minions and draw cards with Ancient of Lore, Azure Drake
3. Find Combo and kill your Enemy
If you have any questions just write it in the comments!
Enjoy and have fun!
yeah that happens from time to time - i mean, when you often get this problem just replace a 4-drop with a shade
Is loatheb a must in this deck? btw is it okay to replace a chillwind yeti with a taunt like sludge for more mid game protection
loatheb is as alwys some kind of tech against patron, oil rogue, freeze mage, etc- anything that is spell heavy
you can replace a chillwind ofc - but i would most likely replace it with a sen'jin shieldmasta then as shown at the tech choice
r there any replacements for loatheb? sadly i don't have it yet
Man you should change that^^
Loatheb is an important tech card against other combo oriented decks like Freeze Mage, Patron Warrior, even Druid Mirror
You could try Sylvanas Windrunner or Toshley - they would fit most likely i guess
Alright thx man
I want to try this deck after work today. But I need to find a good replacement for Dr. Balanced. It's the only card I lack.
Hmm, this is pretty tricky, as always, but you might try Sylvanas Windrunner, Ragnaros the Firelord or maybe even Troggzor the Earthinator
Or if you add Violet Teacher, you could dropDr. Boom for Toshley
Out of those choices, I only have Ragnaros. 90% of the legends I pull, I've never used. Part of me wants to dust some of my useless ones for better ones. But the card collector in me isn't having any of that. lol
hehe yeah i can undestand - but if there was ever a card you should safe and collect your dust for it is and was Dr. Boom
i mean you could also try outPiloted Sky Golem as some kind of sticky minion, but i guess its much worse or you try out Sneed's Old Shredder if you have this one
