Deck Spotlight: Carbon's Perfect Curve Druid
Today we're taking a look at Team Carbon's Perfect Curve Druid deck which originates from Carbon member, Tsaf. This deck is a fairly new creation, yet took Tsaf from rank 6 to 3 on the ladder. The idea behind the deck is that you should be able to play a minion each turn, which makes it a very minion heavy deck, and to also have room to swap out cards based on how the meta is looking at any given time and still remain reliable. Unfortunately, this deck has a fairly steep crafting cost (10480 arcane dust), which means not everyone will be able to immediately try it out.
Here's an introduction to the deck written by Tsaf. For the full deck guide, visit the Perfect Druid Curve deck page.
Quote from Tsaf
The deck was built with the idea of gaining tempo by dropping a minion every turn of the game, on curve.I spread 30 cards out amongst 7 slots '0 & 1 drops' up to '7+ drops', eventually settling at what I thought was a good quantity on each drop to have a good chance of having that drop in hand on curve.
I then thought about the value in all of the druid class cards and went ahead scrolling through my collection picking the appropriate number of cards for each drop. I had to break my rule on a couple of drops but ultimately I'm happy with the balance and all usually goes to plan.

If you are experiencing performance issues on older iPad devices, notably iPad 2 and the iPad Mini (1st generation), please restart the device and close other apps that might be taking resources in the background. There may still be some slowdown during intense particle effects but you should notice much improved performance.
