Best Druid Decks for Scholomance (August 2020) – Standard & Wild!

Druid is one of the more versatile classes in Hearthstone with a pretty balanced hero power and quite a few different archetypes at its disposal most of the time! In this post, we'll be taking a look at the best Hearthstone Druid decks you'll be playing with in the Scholomance expansion. The class got some new stuff to try, so there's some interesting options to now bring to the standard or wild ladder.

The Druid class has been one of the more powerful classes throughout the history of Hearthstone. It was fairly controversial in the early days due to its ability to ramp its mana up, which allowed for the class to play higher cost stuff a lot sooner. This also included strong card draw and the ability to combo big damage out of hand. A lot of these cards were nerfed, but Druid still has the ability to accelerate its mana total with cards that have been added in newer expansions. The class has also been a common place to find decks that flood the board with tokens! These lists were usually more aggressive, because of some of Druid's board buffing spells.

Best Druid Decks for Scholomance Standard

The best decks for Druid are Dragon, Spell, and Token Druid! Dragon is currently the most popular, but the class is having its struggles. We will see if the Scholomance Academy can bring Druid back to the top of the meta.

Theorycraft: Scholomance Big Beast Druid

Beast Druid has always been a fabled deck in Hearthstone. It has had some moments in the past, but it never quite seems to be good enough to stick around in the meta. Scholomance gives it another chance by throwing it in with some of the powerful BIG card options that Druid has. With Lightning Bloom and Overgrowth, Druid has the capability of getting big beasts out on the board very quickly. One beast that will be particularly problematic for opponent's is the Twilight Runner. The card will draw the Druid player two cards when it attacks, which means it will get some insane value if it manages to get in a couple of attacks. Shan'do Wildclaw gives you some versatility, whether you want to buff a board or duplicate a minion you have already out.

This type of deck also has some crazy ability to close out the game. You've got Guardian Animals which will pump out some minions onto the board, or Survival of the Fittest which gives your battlefield, hand, and deck a huge boost in power!

Theorycraft: Scholomance Big Dragon Druid

Well, it shouldn't be a surprise that a version of Big Dragon Druid is going to be tinkered with and be infused with some Scholomance cards. Lightning Bloom is a standout among these, and is basically pre-nerfed Innervate again but with a downside. The deck is also running the new Forest Warden Omu, who can refresh your Mana Crystals if it's on the board and you cast a spell. This is going to be extremely powerful, especially with stuff like Nature Studies which can reduce your 1-cost spells to 0. Plagued Protodrake also becomes a big problem for our opponent unless they can silence or transform it. A huge body and another possibly problematic minion coming out after it will pose issues for players without removal.

Prior to Expansion: Big Dragon Druid

This is a bit different then traditional "big" decks in the past. The reason is there isn't as much ability to pull things out of our deck that will also pull more things out of our deck. These were the signature of big decks in the past which largely relied on Barnes and Y'Shaarj, Rage Unbound. Big Druid now is more about cost reduction and ramping up into your power turns. However, there's still Strength in Numbers which can get you a big minion on the board early if you can trigger it quickly!

Prior to Expansion: Spell Druid

Somewhat like the Mage class, Druid also got incentivized to run a deck with very few minions. Doing so allows for the use of a powerful card draw spell in Fungal Fortunes. This deck is similar to Big Druid in that it's seeking to ramp up, so it can play larger cost cards quicker. The archetype also shares quite a bit in common with the token deck, that seeks to spread the board with spell created minions!

Prior to Expansion: Token Druid

If you're more of a fan of aggressive decks, then Token Druid might be the option for you! We're looking to spread the board out and overrun our opponent if they can't keep our minions off the board. This decks focuses a bit on treant tokens, but they aren't the only creatures we'll be creating. If our opponent can't clear the board, then we'll usually have a spell that buffs our minions and should hopefully finish the game!

Off-Meta Druid Decks

Prior to Expansion: Malygos Druid

If you're a fan of old school Druid decks then there's not much more old school than Malygos Druid. Fend off your opponent until you can slam down a Malygos and blast them with huge 0-cost Moonfires to finish them off! This isn't your only path to victory, but it's what the deck generally looks to do. You've got some large minions in the deck, so you can always just stall your opponent out and beat them down.

Best Druid Decks for Scholomance Wild

Wild is a bit more all over the place, so here's a look at some decks that have been successful on the ladder.

Prior to Expansion: Wild Jade Druid

This is kind of a mix of a lot of Druid's strategies in that it looks to ramp, create tokens, and runs a whole lot of spells. The deck only has two minions in it, so you can usually get a full Fungal Fortunes off without worrying about discarding anything.
