What? A non combo/OTK card for Druid? Of course, the next Druid card will be:
Crystal Dragon - 6 mana 4/6: Battlecry - Reduce the cost of a "random" Dragon with Spellpower in your hand by 5
Non combo? Never underestimate combo potential of 1 mana deal 2 damage cards, Malygos druid is so much better now... FLoop and Florist are still in standard too... I mean sure it is only a minion, but I used spellstone with Malygos a lot too because that sometimes mattered...
That's 2 damage to a minion :/
Still an ok replacement for the spellstone in Malygos deck.
Great in a beast deck with Untamed Beastmaster.
It'll be like Doppelgangster and pre-nerf Saronite Chain Gang with handbuff synergy.
Stag could be insane if midrangy druid becomes a thing and gets more good options to heal 5 on the side...
Remember Flash Heal? Lets print a better one and give it to druid instead because why not.
Class indentity makes as much sense as Power Levels in Dragon Ball Super.
May I remind you, kind Sir, that priest has a wonderful mechanic which turns their healing into damage, which essentially made Flash Heal a (not exactly but you get the point) Choose One - Deal 5 Damage; or Restore 5 Health.
Healing is priest's/paladin's identity and now they're giving Druid a little bit of that. I can't say I dislike it. If you've ever played Warcraft or World of Warcraft, druids are healers, as well. If Rastakan brings out Feral, this brings out Restoration. Which is a pretty big druid thing. Not gonna lie.
Have a good day!
Binding Heal Iron Hide
It's nothing new. Even if it was the exact same card, every class has different ways to use the effect with different power levels
Fair enough. Thats a good argument, i am inclined to agree with you.
Druids have had healing since classic..
Flash Heal only saw play because of Auchenai Soulpriest. Also, healing is part of Druid's identity - they mix armor (for shapeshifter spells) and proper healing (for Druid spells). They just went a little overboard on the armor in the last two years.
Binding Heal though
Good cards with synergy. Actually they can see play together. Only question is what will be druid state after the expansion. Very interesting is that so far I still can't imagine what will be meta in next expansion. Only sure thing is tempo hunter for now imo, because except death stalker rexar he is not losing anything else. All other cards are really very sporadic to build deck for now. Maybe we will see some crazy combos as token lock or treant druid.
Crystallizer, Crystal Stag, Crystal Power. inb4 someone names this deck "Crystal Druid".
It's worth noting that just like Zandalari Templar, you don't have to heal your face in order to get the Stag to activate. Looking forward to seeing if this Druid style has any legs.
There is a deck named "Crystal Beasts" in Yu-Gi-Oh!... Oh wait.
This one would probably be called Amethyst Stag in yugioh :D
Man I love crystal beasts
Glad to see developpers realized than druid should not get more armor than a warrior, so they created new heal cards for the class.
Good tools against aggro.
