Weekly Legends: Mech-Bear-Acolyte-Gadgetzan-Cat Druid
Sometimes on Weekly Legends we break down meta decks. Sometimes, we analyze how to tweak existing decks, making small changes and showing how just going one or two cards off of the norm can be invaluable. And sometimes…Sometimes, we take a dive off the deep end. Legend is something that everyone, regardless of your play style or favorite class, can hit. That is something that I try to make clear with my articles, and why I take the time to cover things like Shaman and Priest in a world where everyone thinks they’re dead. Nothing is truly dead, merely sleeping, and if you have a proper deck composition, anything can take you to the orange diamond. To exemplify this, this week we are looking at a Druid list by Yauld, which doesn’t just break from the norm, it takes the norm and crushes it with a steel mallet.
Mech-Bear-Cat is a very strange card. On one hand, it is very aggressively costed, powerful minion that, due to its ability, will almost always get some type of value. On the other hand, it is a minion with low health that doesn’t impact the board immediately and dies to BGH. However, much like the Crusher Shaman deck of old, this is the style of list where you simply want to overpower your opponent with sheer force and then combo them down in the end. However, unlike the Crusher Shaman deck of old, this list has an assortment of very specific tools (listed below) that will enable you to survive the early turns, and push for control in the middle game. Those tools come together very well, and they are what allow the list to really shine. You are a Combo Druid deck at heart, but on top of that you are an amalgamation of strong minions and very powerful spells that all set up your end game plan; which of course is to get your opponent to fourteen health.
