    Reminds me a bit of Desert Camel. Could actually see some play as a deck thinner and a decent 3 drop.

    Yah pretty good analysis. I tried brann but I felt he ultimately didn't add much and so I replaced it with twig atm. I can't wait until the expansion goes live today so I can test out the new taunt and further improve the deck.

    For the people who say why need auto squelch, well I will copy an example reynad used. Lets say every time you start a match of hearthstone, the game sets itself to the resolution you don't want. So everytime you have to go to the option menu and click the resolution you want. Is this easy to do? Yes. Do you want to have to do this every match and remember to do so? no. 

     It's not even the same thing though because you don't have to go into the menu to do anything. You just click twice.

    I want new modes but blitz mode in hearthstone is a poor idea. Mobile users would be at a significant disadvantage and while quick-thinking is a cool skill, the meta would be mostly aggro and just spammy decks.

    I do think a modified version of hearthstone (like battlegrounds) could make for an interesting blitz game.

    This is like the most pointless feature. It takes about a second to squelch and I think emoting adds a lot to the game.

    legend part: I see :) congrats on taking the deck to legend, btw, imo quite a feat.

    first off i need to make sure we have the same footing about the capabilities of our respective highlander druids. leaving dirty rat pulls by you or the opponent aside:
    A) combo decks are our biggest banes. we don't have enough tempo to outmaneuver their defensive moves. all we can hope for is using 1-4 rats
    B) control decks are our best matchup: renolocks, renopriests, renomages, renohunter - unless they have a combo win condition, or a nice rat, they cannot defeat reno druid.
    C) that leaves aggro decks. i.e., basically all non-core cards need to be chosen to beat this archetype

    Hadronox: maybe I just have to try it out myself, but I just don't see it. I mean, to guarantee its protection you need to have H & naturalize in hand, and without mana boosts or ET both come on turn 10. But now you need 2 cards out of your singleton deck....
    If you need a guaranteed N'Zoth, what about adding a melon to your deck, just to tutor N'Zoth? Means of course that you need to waste 4 additional mana when you are fighting for survival.
    I can't tell you with certainty that Hadronox is bad, but back when taunt druid was a thing, Hadronox plays were hard under pressure even with 2 naturalizes in the deck. counting to have both H & your single Nat in hand to refill your defenders seems a lot.

    brann: yes, i noticed the CO combo and the rat. elise? no. zola? whatever you clone with zola either wins you the game with a single copy, or it makes no difference. brann & reno? no. what else?
    brann & CO: if i need to mill, i go for naturalize & elise to create 2+ copies of naturalize.
    brann & rat: that's the best use i can see, tbh. brann & rat and floop sounds awesome against combo :D

    LK: what about the 2 cards that remove cards from the top of your deck? i mean, i didn't try it out, but when you fight your easiest matchup (control), these cards are basically dead in your hand. if you play them you risk to remove a key card like banker from your deck. if you don't play them, then you cannot use elise to copy them. if in the matchup you thus decide not to play LK: well then you have LK dead in your hand.... LK to me is a value card. but elise provides me with infinite value against control and enough value otherwise.

    Plague: You are right. Plague does not prevent you from playing Hadronox and even if a lot of 1/5s are reborn, it's good enough to win the game. i apologize for my shortsightedness :)

    Crawler: I don't have the insight you have, didn't play much the last 4 weeks (vacation). Even a plain 2/3 on turn 2 is often good, so, why not? but i simply had the feeling that mr. no-more-in-charge-now was a rather rare sight.

     

    anyway: i did never take reno druid to legend (and i never will, don't have the time), so i can't compare with your experience. but i still would suggest to possibly try to only run N'Zoth instead of Nzoth & Hadronox. At the same time I might try out running mr. H ;)

     You have some fair points about Brann, I'll have to try the card more until I can reach a conclusion. The Lich King I find to actually be useful against aggro (Pulling 5 cards from your deck is usually game winning against aggro. Plus the other cards are generally pretty helpful as well) and with Hadronox in the deck, Control is practically a guaranteed win. I'm still not sure about DragonQueen yet, it may be to much top end. I was thinking a card like Jeppeto could be pretty crazy in this deck instead of Dragon Queen (although pulling Dragon Queen from Jepetto is a pretty bonkers play).

    The Legend piece came from before I uodated the deck so granted I haven't play tested the current build. I seriously disagree in regards to hadronox. I played plague with hadronox and they work together fine. Hadronox just gives you so many more ways to win and acts as a second/added win con.

    Dragon queen may be a bit much, but I figured it's worth a try as draw in this deck is generally slow. I use to think Brann was relatively pointless too, but combo-ing with cold light can be a game altering play and it has a few other case uses that make it good enough.

    Lich King can never lose you the game. I don't even get what you were trying to say there. Pretty much any card from the Lich King is good in this deck, and the added value from multiple recitations is a nice deck (especially because we lack lots of draw).

    That being said if the meta is more aggressive, I would sub The Lich King for Plague. It doesn't really matter if you get a few spiders from Hadrononx because if you're playing plague you're playing against an aggro deck and against aggro all you care about is protecting your face.

    Pirates are prevalent in just about every aggro deck, certainly not dwindling. Druid, Rogue, Paladin, Warlock, Hunter, Warrior, sometimes even Shaman all run patches in aggro builds. Especially against embeggen druid not being able to deal with a 3/3 + 1/2 body is an instant lose. Crawler is as or even more essential then doomsayer (a card you should really craft. It really is important for early game survival) for early game survival.

    Your deck seems nice enough but it lacks any sort of definitive win condition. The heal package seems tacked on and while your deck may fair slightly better against aggro, I feel you're deck is at a serious disadvantage against control and combo decks.

    Would you mind checking out my list? I've been updating it since I hit legend in November with it and I've played well over 200 games with the deck. I'm curious to see how my list is similar to yours: https://www.hearthpwn.com/decks/1308974-legend-ga-highlander-wall-druid

    Sorry to jump in here but I've been playing highlander druid since last expansion and I've spent well over 200 games tinkering with the deck across multiple expansions. Here is the latest list (using GA cards but still succesfull) and I think it's the best version of highlander druid around: https://www.hearthpwn.com/decks/1308974-legend-ga-highlander-wall-druid

    Just made major changes to a Highlander Taunt Druid deck I hit legend with before DOD released. I just updated the deck with new cards from Galakronds Awakening and to keep it in line with the meta. The deck looks to be super-competitve (tier 2 at least) and you can try it now if you want.

    What's the point of this card? Who wants to run this? Why is this taking a legendary spot?

     Any Quest deck at all!?!?!

     

    This card is good for aggro quest decks as 6/5 worth of stats where 2/3 of the stats protect the 4/2. This is great for Tempo decks as it takes back initiative by using the 4/2 to kill whatever minions on board leaving a 2/3. And with control, you get to remove a minion with the 4/2 and have some health savings with the 2/3 taunt. 

     

    I swear people just post troll comments all the time, but if it isn't a troll comment then god help us.

     When you rate a card, you have to look at the meta and see what is already playable or not. Right now, the control deck that is using Quest is Control Priest. Does this deck want to run this card ? No.

    Tempo one are Quest Druid and Quest Shaman. Quest Druid definitely don't want this, since it have far better options, and Quest Shaman is just doesn't good enough to be played seriously, even with this card in the list.

    Now Aggro Quest is obviously Quest Hunter, and yes this is the perfect card for this archetype, 2 bodies in 1, rush, beast, 4 mana, and leave a taunt behind. 

    This card will be only played in Quest Hunter and it will be one of the MVP, but don't talk about other quest deck. The same decks that are playing Questing Explorer will be playing this.

     Standard isn't the only archetype and the card isn't solely rated based on current meta standings. The card (Like questing adventurer) is insane and an auto-include in all quest decks. It's a great card.
