Wispering Woods Card Review

This card is decent, but it has one significant problem. If we had a dedicated (even non-Aggro) Token Druid deck, its hand size would probably not be that high all the time. And the decks with a bigger hand size (like Big Druid or Malygos Druid) wouldn’t really want to play this card.

It would make some sense in a kind of slower Token Druid – we’ve seen some decks like that a while ago, slotting Wisps of the Old Gods. It was often used to summon Wisps, and well, if you have 7 or more cards in your hand, this would be great. I think this card starts to be “good” in such deck when it summons five 1/1’s. 4 might be playable in certain situations, but not great (think Call in the Finishers – the card has seen virtually zero play outside of the Murloc Shaman, a very fringe deck).

I feel like this card might be playable in a Token-style Midrange Druid, like the good old Violet Teacher decks. That said, the fact that Mark of the Lotus rotates out at the same time makes it significantly weaker. 1/1’s are much easier to take down and much less threatening than 2/2’s. It still has synergy with cards like Power of the Wild, Savage Roar and Branching Paths, though.

Right now, I don’t think that such a deck has enough support to work, though. This card is also not enough to push it in the playable territory. If we see more synergies – it might work. If not – the deck, as well as this card, will be unplayable.

Card rating: 4/10

    So one more card directly coppied from Magic:The Gathering? It is a nice one though. I might actually try “hand” druid myself when the expansion hits

    P.S. The magic card I am talking about is spontanious generation – look it up. I find it really cool when HS copies cards from MTG though, I love both games a lot.

    They are making mill/hand druid a thing, and this is a 4 mana 7/7 in it.

    If druids get a chance to lower spell cost, then this and Pilfered Power will be great in wild.

    I can only see this card being useful if you have at least 7 cards in hand, so you’d summon 6 wisps. Putting 12 stats on the board for 4 mana is pretty good, but Living Mana does it better and more reliably.
    Perhaps if they were 1/2s instead, this would be decent if it only summoned 4 of them, but that’s not the card we have.
    Hopefully, the two cards revealed in the stream will be the only total crap cards druid gets.

    Just as nearly all the Druid mass-buffs rotate out … but then again, this would be a terrible fit for aggro-token Druid as you’re never likely to have that many cards in hand when you could play this.

    I suppose it combos OK with Nourish – but then I think I’d rather have a free 4/4 Arcane Tyrant on turn 5 than 6 or 7 1/1s on turn 9 (or Onyxia would be more popular). Unless there’s going to be some good token Druid support this is going to be pretty weak in Standard – I don’t think Soul of the Forest, Evolving Spores or Branching Paths are going to cut it.

    I guess there’s some potential in Wild with Mark of the Lotus or Poison Seeds maybe.

    Even in a Big EZ deck I don’t really see what this does. Against Aggro its just too slow, and against control its a dead card.

    This is supposed to be aggro oriented, but how likely are you to have a big hand in turn 4 as aggro?

        True aggro Druid won’t have many cards in their hand by turn 4
        It works with cards like Twilight drake and mountain giant

      • High as fuck

        YES!
        but maybe this can be a last resort in agrro, when you don’t have many minions and only buffs. You do the 5 card draw and play this next turn.

        Or it can work just as a helping hand in self mil druid that I am going to make.
