I don’t get treespeaker. It seems to be anti tempo. If I can finally get a board to stick it’s usually a win. I can see that there may be a few niche cases where it’ll set you up for a win. Versus warrior they have to have no brawls and has to be before turn 10. Maybe vs rogue it helps??
The way I see it, you aren't gonna be sacrificing your finisher cards like Savage Roar etc. for Treespeaker, so you're just as likely to win the way you describe. He's just another option to make a board more resilient and threatening. Plus, it doesn't really lose you tempo if you send your treants face or trade them into low attack things before transforming them, or if you play him the same turn you play Landscaping/Force of Nature or pop a bunch of Soul of the Forested things.
If my Treespeaker board gets a Brawl or Warpath or Hagatha's Scheme out of my opponent, I consider that a success since that's one less clear they can use on a later wave of tokens. You just don't want to commit MORE things into a board you've already Treespeakered against a Warrior or Shaman, since a 4/4 and a couple of 5/5s is already threatening enough to use their big clears on.
Once i got to rank 9 i started seeing a lot of zoo. Had to put in Swipe x2.
I was already running 2 x swipe. also crystal power makes stelladris a lot better. if you get him in an opening hand you can get use out of him if you need to dump before portal.
I can't remember if you had this stuff in your treant version or not. It's definitely a card I have found amazing right now in my version, but I'm barely seeing anyone else use at all. I think maybe it's one of those cards that is being slept on.
You have good removal Vs. aggro and you have heal as well. if you play with Stelladris the copies you get back are 1 mana as well. makes stelladris into a good early game play.
