    Nah, it's a pretty big deal since Buc is probably unplayable now which then compromises decks' ability to play Patches. This is about as impactful as it gets for only nerfing 2 cards, and it does make sense to want to nerf as few cards as possible because some people will undoubtedly bitch and...

    The wild growth is really awkward to use because druid rarely has several minions out early and by the time it does the ship has sailed on ramping. In slow matchups where you can afford to spend 3 mana and the ramp is very important you never want to play Living Roots for dudes anyway, at least...

    Not only does Grom not scale but it's also a single hit of damage which means it's completely stopped by any Taunt, whereas druid combo could crash some stuff into the taunts and still hit face with other stuff which made it so much harder to play round. With Grom you can hide behind whatever...

    Token Druid is fucking awesome atm. I went from rank 5 0 stars to Legend yesterday after cutting a Mire Keeper and Cenarius for Arcane Giants and I had some sort of astronomical winrate even though I didn't track it. The deck has an incredibly high power ceiling if you can draw Innervate Nourish...

    Is there less Warrior on NA or something? I'm playing more or less 50% Warrior these days, although a lot of it is Dragon Warrior which isn't actually that bad a matchup. Still, I'd never run Freeze Mage on EU. Also, what's your reasoning for 1 Wolf in Zoo? I always found it to be amazing the...

    I've been playing only Zoo so I haven't been trying to combat it myself but I've found that by far my toughest matchup is Tempo Warrior, purely because of how good Ravaging Ghoul is. Control Warrior isn't great because its AOE isn't cheap enough, but Tempo has 2/3 super cheap AOEs which just eat...

    The problem I have with Dragon Egg (and Archer) is that it's a ridiculous tempo sink in a deck which really needs to start racing out of the blocks because almost every other deck has either early-game minions that instantly need to be addressed (mirror match, Shaman) or lategame minions so good...
