Today, our dear friend Innervate has been executed for it's recent crimes against humanity by the Blizzgods-
I am here to clean our dear friend's name, and remind you all that he wasn't always the cancerous turn one play it is today.
At the very beginning, Druid was a lot more than an aggro/ anti control class. There were eras where the Token Druid was a midgame deck, instead of what it is today. Once, Druid had many wonderful archetypes! Malygos Druid, Beast Druid, Token (midrange) Druid with Yogg... But it all changed in the Year Of The Mammoth- with Malygos Druid's leave to the wild format and the beginning of the "rise of the Jades".
With Yogg nerfed and Living Roots moved to the wild format, our dear friend became desperate for any possible help- wherever he would find it, and it came from a place unexpected- the frozen waists themselves!
The Lich King himself has turned to manipulate our friend, forcing him to make a decision- join Hunter in the dead classes or shine above all others, with only a little small price of course. Or was it a small price? We see it for what it is, but in our dear friend's desperate eyes, there was no choice to be made- HE JOINED THE DARK SIDE.
The cost of this decision, was the humanity itself.
Joining forces with the darkness of cancer, Malfurion had twisted into a monstrous creature, bringing the power of Ultimate Balance to his side, and Spreading Plagues everywhere, he ruined all that once threatened to ruin him.
Now the Blizzgods have decided to kill him, although the fact he was wonderful to all of the non-dark sided Druid decks... actions had to be made to save the galaxy...
May it "walk the skies" (as a true Skywalker).
There is only one more thing to be mentioned- although there is the new hero-Arthas shouting at Druid he is past redemption, it isn't quite true.
If Anakin could find redemption & peace, why can't Innervate? May it find peace today in it's dying breath- by being played in some fun wild decks like Aviana Kun- Malygos or my Ramp Druid I used to rank up to rank 5 today, or maybe even the new archetype Giants Druid.
Or is it truly dead? I believe our beloved friend isn't truly dead, it is hidden somewhere beneath the darkness of the dark side... I hope that one day it will re-join us in our Druid games, because if Counterfeit Coin saw play then why can't Innervate?
Thank you for reading, and may the RNGISUS be with you! (Or is this to much Star-Wars?).
