Un’Goro Jade Druid Deck List Guide (June 2017, Standard) – Season 39

Our Jade Druid guide for the Journey to Un’Goro meta will take you through Mulligans, Gameplay, Substitutions, and Combos!

Jade Druid is an especially strong deck against slower decks because the longer the game goes the more powerful their Jade Golems become. The problem for Jade Druid currently is getting beaten in the early game, and due to the current aggressive meta makes this deck harder to play at times. While the deck isn’t top tier, it can still do amazing things given the right draw.

Update – Un’Goro Jade Druid June 2017, Season 39

No real changes to Jade Druid going into the June season. If you are looking for a tech option, you can cut a Tar Creeper for a Gluttonous Ooze if you are running into a lot of Weapons.

What is the Jade Golem Mechanic?

If you haven’t been following the expansion very closely then you might be a bit confused by the Jade Golem mechanic. This an exclusive mechanic to the Jade Lotus gang which is made up of the Druid, Rogue, and Shaman classes. Each time a Jade Golem is summoned by a card, the following Jade Golem will be +1/+1 stronger. It also increases in mana cost by one all the way up to ten. While the increase in mana stops at ten, the increase in attack and health does not. You can probably now tell that if you start spawning a lot of Jade Golems they can get out of hand pretty quickly.

Un’Goro Jade Druid Mulligan Guide and Strategy

You are looking for your ramp cards to start building your mana towards the late game. InnervateWild Growth, and Jade Blossom are your targets. I probably wouldn’t keep Jade Idol because it isn’t doing you a ton of favors in the early game. Wrath can be an important keep against aggressive decks. People are going to tend to want to pressure your deck, but if you know you’re in for a slower battle you should consider keeping Nourish or even Gadgetzan Auctioneer if you already have ramp cards in your hand.

Jade Druid Play Strategy

Most games you are just looking to ramp up in the early turns. If you are against aggro, then you are looking to remove minions with Wrath while hopefully ramping up. Every turn you can force your opponent to play sub-optimally is better for you. There will be times when you’ll have to throw down Fandral Staghelm on the board against aggro to stop some of the bleeding, but generally you’ll at least want to get one effect from him. This is especially the case in control matchups where you can afford to save him for the later turns.

Jade Behemoth and Primordial Drake can be your saviors against aggro decks which is why it’s so important ramp early. If you have the option to save an Innervate for one of these cards against aggro then it’s best to take it.

Once you start hitting the later turns this is when the deck starts really getting powerful. You can start cycling with Jade Idol and Gadgetzan Auctioneer, you’ll be able to have turns where you drop multiple Jade Golems on the board, and Nourish will help replenish your hand if you end up having to top deck (this is especially great when combined with Fandral Staghelm).

Jade Druid Card Substitutions

Jade Druid Combos and Synergies

Fandral Staghelm and all of the Choose One cards in your deck are amazing. Nourish is fantastic with this card as well as Jade Idol and Wrath.

Gadgetzan Auctioneer is obviously great with all of your spells for chaining draws together. He can be especially good when you’ve got a few Jade Idol cards in your deck and you can start pumping out the Golems.
