Magic Decks #9 – Control the Rush!

Hearthstone Innkeeper's Invitational Videos LongGetting sick of the Hunter Rush decks that have been appearing in ranked recently?

Well, here is the perfect counter to it; the Watcher Druid deck!

The Watcher Druid deck makes use of the cheap cost of the Ancient Watcher (4/5 minion for 2 cost) before summoning the Sunfury Protector to give it the Taunt ability. Its primary aim is to buy time against the rush decks while you build up to your usual late-game power as the Druid.

We will go through the decklist:

Druid (15):

  • Innervate x2
  • Mark of the Wild x1
  • Wrath x2
  • Savage Roar x1
  • Swipe x2
  • Keeper of the Grove x2
  • Druid of the Claw x2
  • Force of Nature x1
  • Ancient of Lore x2

Neutral (15):

  • Ancient Watcher x2
  • Nat Pagle x1
  • Sunfury Protector x2
  • Harvest Golem x2
  • Tinkmaster Overspark x1
  • Chillwind Yeti x2
  • Defender of Argus x2
  • Cairne Bloodhoof x1
  • The Black Knight x1
  • Ragnaros the Firelord x1

The other cards are about providing value and utility for versatility in games.

Pros

  • Strong against rush decks
  • Versatile

Cons

  • May not be the best option against non-rush decks

What do you think of the Watcher Druid deck? Will it be the best hard counter against the current rush decks?
