Wardruid Loti Card Review

It’s the first card with FOUR different forms, which means that is beats just about anything else in terms of flexibility.

You’re playing against Aggro and you need a Taunt? 1/6 Taunt for 3 isn’t best, but it does its job, especially against Odd Paladin.

You’re playing against a slower decks and you’re just before Turn 8, when they will probably drop The Lich King? Play Stealth + Poisonous and wait for it. You can stop him from playing a big minion, or force him to AoE it down.

Your opponent has just dropped a 3-4 health minion that you absolutely want to clear? You got 4/2 with Rush to run into it.

You’re holding Swipe but your opponent has a lot of 2 health targets (or a single 5 health target)? Go for +1 Spell Damage.

While yes, the individual forms aren’t most amazing, the flexibility is what makes this card quite powerful. Powerful enough to see play? Honestly, right now maybe not. Druid has so many overpowered cards that something like this feels underwhelming in comparison. It also wouldn’t be played in any Oaken Summons or Witching Hour deck for obvious reasons. But it would be a great fit into a sort of Spiteful deck (Spell Damage would be useless there, but other 3 forms not), or just a general Midrange Druid build. I could even see it in Malygos Druid and such after rotation happens.

P.S. Wardruid Loti is absolutely broken in the Wild with Fandral Staghelm – it’s a 3 mana 4/6 minion with Taunt, Rush, Poisonous, Stealth and Spell Damage. Crazy.

Card rating: 7/10, but Druid has so many broken cards right now that it will be hard to fit until the rotation

    This card won’t see play in standard. If you could put 2 of this card in your deck, would you? Tough to make the case for Legendary. Even if you arguing the “adaptability” case, I still don’t think this card would help swing the early, mid, or late game for you.

    This card is criminally underrated. People just understand how strong flexible cards are.

    I predict they will introduce a Fandral 2.0 somewhere in the next year’s rotation. It seems kinda wasteful to have these kind of cards only shine in wild, but i can see why they don’t want Fandral to be evergreen either.

    I mean, we don’t want Druid to get more busted tools, but we do get pissed off when they receive unplayable stuff (Duskfallen Aviana, now this). The only time this is a useful card is with Fandral. I think it’s time Druids got a spell that gives your next Choose One card both choices combined (maybe a 2-mana spell? Something like Paladin’s Rebuke with Loatheb). But until then, this is unplayable. I mean, you can still include it if for some reason you want a 3rd copy of Druid of the Scythe, because this is what it is: a worse version of Druid of the Scythe.

    I don’t find this card too fascinating, but on the other hand, it’s about time Druid got the less fascinating cards. It’s just a decent minion with a boring effect worthy of a Legendary.

    Dinos and flexibility. Might not be the best card to use but the point of this card is its flexibiliy and that is what Druid is actually about in the end. To not be a master of any one thing but be able to adapt to the situation and fight accordingly.

    Ok listen a good legendary card is a card you can build your deck around it. This is just a money scam. Its basicly upgraded scarab thats costs 1600 dust instead of 40 in most cases. You may think that the poisonous becouse you get early giant etc. But its not. The reason we didn’t saw poisonous wasp outside of arena was that its very easy to be removed. And people that play Giants on turn 3 usually have hellfire or whatever. So its flexibility comes with giving your turn 7 fandril some value. Although the wild deck that run him can make something more descent out of the 3 mana.
    Its abilities are very weak. It kind of lacks divine shield or lifesteal to be usefull. the 4/2 rush minion is just another coppy of druid of the schythe And you don;t see druid having a need for it despite not being bad. Stonescale basilistc is just much better than the weaker wasp.
    THIS IS NOT A LEGENDARY CARD. It could be some sort of EPIC quallity card. Having 2 of those can make your deck consistent. But having just one sucks. You can’t rely on it and you basicly at later turns you don’t want this drawn. And in early turns it is weaker than cript lord.
    It is not a fun card becouse you can’t build a deck round it. I can see staghelm aggro based decks with 2 of those otherwise its just bad. And considering how strong druid decks are right now and how consistent they are i don’t see them removing pieces of their combo for this. its not better than the stone in terms of removal. it offers no ramp. Being cheep is not a problem for druid. In token druids its not better than cript lord. It is not a treant. Whitch used to be a thing for resto druids back than. being a 3/3 erstore 2 hp to all or give all units 1/1 for a tree form could be usefull. ot just give all your minions 2 hp is nothing you can build a deck around. Otherwise there is no druid deck that can use it. And the new treant archetype is not doing good in this meta. So it could use an extra treant, whitch again could be a thing to build around. Some sort of palm tree to make it like its a zandalary troll woul dbe very creative.
    BUT AGAIN BLIZZARD ARE NOT CREATIVE ANYMORE THEY JST WANT MONEY. So this card is basicly that. Craft it golden it will make them verry happy.

      Everybody hates Druid right now because it has received some broken tools in too many expansions. Even if Hunter has the strongest archetype right now, Druid has too many good decks that are all too similar because they use the same package of broken cards. So it is obvious that Blizzard will push a shitty archetype that never worked (gaining attack for your hero and then attacking with it is one of those archetypes that NEVER worked in the history of hs) and of course the legendaries will be trash as well. Wardruid Loti sucks, and that is a matter of fact. It is really flexible, but you trade the good flexibility with shitty stats. The poisonus version is a worse wasp, and wasp has never seen play. The spell damage one is the dalaran mage. Yep, the fucking dalaran mage. The rush version is the best version and it is just like druid of the scythe ( a common card btw) and the taunt version is just shitty. Crypt lord had the same stats of the taunt version, but the ability to gain health everytime you summon something was the only thing that made crypt lord playable (and not even in all the token builds…). So what I am trying to say is that this card is boring and shitty at the same time. I don’t mind this course of action because I am a Paladin main and I hate druid so I always thought it needed a terrible expansion to compensate, but I feel every true druid main that has to craft this common card disguised as a legendary.

        i think its too early to put it in the shitty pile of cards. We still have to see what the legendary loa card would be. After all the staghelm version of this card has nice artwork and good potential. And staghelm has some artwork for choose one transformers And this is the only Devilsaur that appears as a class card for now. Summoning it is a bit hard and i think that mimirons head is easyer to assemble and much more rewarding. After all its a 3 combo cards but you can use it on every mech while staghelm loti is a combo of 2 unique cards that don;t give that good outcome. As for unworking archtypes we already have treant druid that is total garbage. Getting it from whizbang is one of the worse decks there. But who know Odd druid has very similar tool to odd rogue in some cases better but i don;t feel like investing 1600 dust just for soem extra consistency there the odd druid deck is quite expensive anyway. And in wild druid is not that much good. Its strongest archtype the jade druid lost value to shudderlock. And mill druid is so much behind on cards compared to mill rogue. Managerie druid is still the best midrange druid out there ( considering token druid as an aggro deck ) We should see for now.

          Of course in my comment I was talking about Standard, because I play more in that format. In these days I am playing more and more Wild because Paladin has a lot of good cards and fun archetypes in there. I experienced both the ranked ladder and the friendly one, and I have to admit that after the nerf Druid has been in a bad spot. The combo decks are really cluncky and the other archetypes just get outclassed by the aggro decks. Of course Loti with Staghelm is really crazy, but is enough? It is not a combo that wins you the game by any mean, so there’s really no point to compare it to the Head of mimiron archetype.

    November 24, 2018 at 7:49 pm

    5/5, probably the most underrated card of the set IMO. It’s basically decent in every single match up, which makes it insanely good. It’s as if drawing this meant drawing hard removal against control, taunt against aggro, tempo against midrange and spell damage if needed. I can’t really see a scenario where this isn’t good.

    2.5 out of 5
    i feel like giving it better stats as
    1/3 poisonous
    1/5 +1 SP
    4/3 rush
    1/7 Taunt
    will be better and makes it more like a legend than a ordinary minion..

    • minti
      November 25, 2018 at 2:24 am

      i feel like 1/2 poisonous and divineshield. that way it trully is a 2 for one card. and it doesnt die off to hellfire and just a one drop defile. 1/3 +2 sp. 4/2 rush lifesteal. And 2/5 taunt. And than its worth its cost and being unique.

    This year, it will see play in Spiteful Druid and potentially other druid decks that don’t run the Oaken Summons package. Next April when the rotation comes it will probably see play since Druid will be losing nearly all of it’s current shell.

    • minti
      November 25, 2018 at 2:44 am

      When druid loses his shell he still has mallygos. Where it can see play. Although there are rumours that mally is going to get retired. Token druid is the fast druid type and its kind of gone in standart in wild ther is cript lord that beats him got the 3 slot and ther are tons of great 3 slot cards that give token druids more value like the imp master etc. you have treants and big beasts. Since gloop still stays you can see spray and pray and mally where there is no need for card that does not give you card draw. we may see gadgetzan auctioneer replace UI. both in mally and mechathun. Togwaggle is gone so no place there.
      If the raptor loa ia a reprint of staghelm than it may be usefull. I can see odd druid wanting this although odd druid is just another tempo cancer deck with less tools than the rogue.

    Dalaran Mage or
    Crypt Lord with out it’s text

      November 24, 2018 at 6:18 pm

      Without needing to draw all 4 to have access to which ever you need in the moment. Dont prettend access to multiple options on a card isent big. Also losing one attack off of giant wasp is basically no diffrance.

      • Iplitan
        November 24, 2018 at 8:03 pm

        don’t act as if having subpar effects on one card justify crafting a 1600 dust minion when there are better ones for that same cost

          November 24, 2018 at 8:41 pm

          Thalnos? Is he good? No, hes great with 2 combined effects.

          • Pookachu150
            November 25, 2018 at 4:20 am

            Yes but he has 2 COMBINED effects not one of 4. the only good option is the spell damage and why not run thalnos instead for 1 less mana? card draw is worth more than plus 3 hp.

          • Iplitan
            November 25, 2018 at 12:06 pm

            but who runs thalnos these days? again: there are better options for those 1600 dust, even some at just 400 or 100…

    This is my favorite new card in the set. None of the forms are that exciting but they are all Dinosaurs! UnGoro should have had more cool dinosaur cards but at least we’re seeing some more in this set. Also this is nice flexibility without being overpowered. Druid is my favorite class because of their trait of Choose One being making choices and adapting game play, not because of their overpowered cards we see currently. This card fits in the classic Druid theme of choices which is why I like the class.

  17. Jed
    November 24, 2018 at 1:57 pm

    Nice flex, but probably too weak overall. Kind of card you can always throw into a druid deck and it will work.

    But that’s 90% of druid cards


  18. Lluadian
    November 24, 2018 at 1:40 pm

    You know I just thought of something. I don’t know if blizzard would settle for the big form only appearing in wild.

    I’m guessing another card in this or an upcoming expantion will have an effect saying your next/for rest of turn, choose one cards trigger all effects.

    There’s already evidence of cards with similar effects. So this would make sense probably after things like malfuion rotate out.

  19. TheThreather
    November 24, 2018 at 1:26 pm

    This card is 4/5

    It has flexibility and each form can counter aggro in its own way.

    Will it fit in malygos duird? Unlikely. Token druid yes.

  20. Joako
    November 24, 2018 at 1:20 pm

    You can say that this is flexible but it sucks in all of it forms, i can’t see this as more than another case of the community overvaluing an aspect of the card ignoring it’s weak power level (Just like Chameleos).

    Good utility card. However i doubt it’ll see play until the rotation. Druid as it is now doesn’t really want this type of card in deck. After rotation though, i feel this card would be really good.
    2/5 now
    4/5 after rotation

  24. Arachnofiend
    November 24, 2018 at 12:55 pm

    Wouldn’t be surprised if this doesn’t see play immediately. It’s a good card, but not a broken one, which means it doesn’t compete with Standard Druid’s current options. Will probably see play once all of Druid’s current nonsense gets rotated out.

  25. Lam0611
    November 24, 2018 at 12:39 pm

    1/2 poisonous form counter early Gaint in Evenlock
    4/2 rush form guarantee 3 mana 4 dame reactive card (take down Hench-clan Thug in Odd Rogue)
    1/6 taunt form good againt Odd Paladin
    1/4 dame spell dame is actually ok in some situation (good combo with Swipe)
    At least it is good in current meta. Although each invidual form is not strong (common eff) but the flexibility make them become 1 Legendary card.

    • Solus
      November 24, 2018 at 1:12 pm

      Just to address those in order.
      1) 1/2 gets removed by either hellfire or librarian into defile, and both of those removal tools are usual dead against druid anyway, so no it doesn’t counter giant, it only delays it a turn.
      2) agreed, honestly this is the only form that’s worthwhile in my opinion, but druid already has that card and it only ever saw play in spiteful druid, which got nerfed.
      3) yeah but I’d rather play a tar creeper any day of the week against odd pally.
      4) true, but Thalnos is strictly better for that effect and he cycles.

      In short, the only way this card sees ANY play is if the sheer flexibility of this card makes in an auto-include in most druid decks based on that flexibility alone, and personally I don’t see it.

        How do you play a librarian in a evenlock?

      • Pindead
        November 24, 2018 at 1:28 pm

        You obviously dony’ know the druid/even warlock matchup. You drop this on turn 3 so your opponent can’t play his Giant on 3 turn 3 when he has the coin or on turn 4 when he doesn’t have it. Hellfire is very important to get rid of the plagues so being able to force him using it on a 3 mana minion is worth it

        November 24, 2018 at 1:38 pm

        1. Only hellfie do it, because librarian is odd mana. If he has hellfire, it will delay giant for 1 turn that mean i take 8 dame less and more time to develop my hand and maybe draw naturalize.
        2. 3. 4. That why i like this card, the flexibility, tar creeper is not good against deathrattle hunter and thanos is useless against odd paladin.

    You know what – it isn’t great. Which is, and I say this as someone who literally owns an entirely gold togwaggle druid deck, in itself – great. Druid is already completely nuts. Making a card that’s literally only particularly good in Wild is a good sign that Blizzard recognises this.

    November 24, 2018 at 12:36 pm

    only if they add spell “Your choose one works combined this turn ” for 1 or 2 mana should be great

  28. Scryer
    November 24, 2018 at 12:35 pm

    So in MTG there exists a series of cards called commands/charms. These cards are considered good not because they are incredibly powerful but because of thier exceptional versatility. Loti is extremely versatile and while none of these forms are particularly powerful. The fact that she can become the minon you need in a variety of situations makes this card worth consideration.

    • Soup And Salad
      November 24, 2018 at 6:54 pm

      Part of what makes the Charms and Commands as powerful as they are is they’re able to be played during either player’s turn at any time, and tend to have effects that would take advantage of such a thing. Heathstone doesn’t really have anything that would be called instant speed, and that tends to hurt they applicability.

  29. ResidentStandard
    November 24, 2018 at 12:31 pm

    1/5, even with Fandral combo.

  30. Soup And Salad
    November 24, 2018 at 12:30 pm

    Wardruid Loti is quite clearly one of, if not the most flexible minions in the game currently. Even with that, decks that play it will have the option to cut it fairly easily. None of the modes are particularly powerful, as they should be, but that will hurt its applicability in constructed.

    Loti is the perfect Arena card as it can be whatever you need it to be at any stage in the game, but unless Spiteful Summoner Druid returns to the forefront in a big way, the class really doesn’t need or want a card that sacrifices power so much for flexibility.

    In Wild, this could be part of a Midrange Druid sort of deck that wants to play this with Fandral Staghelm for a three mana Druid of the Claw. However, Midrange as an archetype will struggle in Wild as long as the format can contain super consistent combo decks, aggro decks that can kill on turn four, and value decks that cannot be outraced.

    Arena could really be the only home for such a card.

    • Warptens
      November 24, 2018 at 6:15 pm

      Druid of the scythe is staple in spiteful druid.
      Loti shares the 4/2 rush form with scythe. Not sure what’s better between 2/4 taunt and 1/6 taunt, 1 less stat but better distribution. The poison form can be useful. So I expect to see Loti in spiteful druid.

      That’s not true. Fandral doesn’t work that way with Branching Paths, so it shouldn’t work that way with this card.

      • OmadonTheRed
        November 24, 2018 at 12:36 pm

        That’s because Branching Paths says “Choose Twice”. Also – note that they’ve literally made the card art/text for the Fandral version.
