Jade Druid is a deck that tries to continuously summon Jade Golems until they become so large that it becomes impossible for the opponent to deal with them. The Druid has access to ramp cards that let you play your cards earlier than they would otherwise be able to. In addition, the Druid has access to heavy card draw with two [Nourish] and two [Ultimate Infestation]. The combination of Jade cards with heavy card draw is so powerful because the extra card draw will draw the Druid into even more Jade cards, which, of course, become more powerful the more of them the Druid has.
In this article, I will explain Jade Druid’s playstyle, core cards of the deck, tech cards, and offer a few example deck lists. In part two of this series, I will go more in-depth about how to play this unique deck.
This isn’t the most original meme, as I’m well aware.
Exodia mage is a deck that aims to win after playing [Archmage Antonidas] and four [Sorcerer’s Apprentice] in one turn, then killing the opponent with a barrage of 0-cost Fireballs. In the Wild format, the Mage has access to [Emperor Thaurissan], a card that allows you to reduce the cost of all the cards in your hand by 1. When you have [Archmage Antonidas], [Sorcerer’s Apprentice], and [Molten Reflection] in your hand, the cost reductions from [Emperor Thaurissan] will be enough to play them all in one turn, and finish the game! Exodia mage is strong against decks that don’t have a lot of minion pressure, like the ever-popular Reno Priest. In this article, I will explain how to create and successfully play an Exodia Mage deck, and explain when not to play Exodia Mage.
Disclaimer: Because I don’t have a 50-game sample size, the contents of this article are my own opinion. I do have a working knowledge of Exodia Mage after playing it in Legend near the beginning of the Frozen Throne expansion.
Are you looking to play a new twist on an old deck archetype? Zoo Warlock is an archetype that has been around ever since the beginning of Hearthstone and has seen play in many different forms, even in the Wild format. Zoo warlock was outclassed by other aggressive decks ever since the release of Patches and the existence of pirate warrior. With the recent nerfs to [Innervate] and [Fiery War Axe] (which saw play in aggro druid and pirate warrior respectively), Zoo Warlock now has more of a fighting chance or even favorable against other aggressive decks. In this article, I will discuss the Demon Zoo archetype, a subarchetype that aims to exploit the power of demon synergy cards like [Voidcaller], [Mal’Ganis], and [Bloodreaver Gul’dan].
