    I have all the other card other than Second ancient of war and mulch what should i replace them with?

      Maybe raven Idols?

      You could run Gadgetzan Auctioneer.

      You can replace Mulch with Neutralize and the second Ancient of war with Ironbark protector. Thats what i did.

    Replacement for Ancient of War? I only have 1.

    Replacement for mulch?

    • Biscoln

      To achieve a similar effect, probably naturalize. But that card isn’t really that good.

      try big game hunter, mulch is for the big minions anyway, and since shaman i staple ladder deck those 4 mana 7-7s should get BGHed

    A more aggressive Jade Druid?
    Annnnnnnd there goes the meta

    Where did you get the Druid of the Sabre? I thought Kolento was running 1 Innervate instead of it. Otherwise I really like this deck, even without the auctioneer lategame vs control is favored. With Druids of the claw, feral rages and swipes you can sometimes plan a large burst turn when for example warlock doesnt reno yet, cause he thinks he’s ok. The downside is that it’s really weak against miracle rogue.

    kolento update this deck: -2 raven idol +1 feral rage +1 ancient of war

    Kind of surprised it doesn’t run two auctioneers?

    i know it’s a dump question but any replacements of the nature of war ? xd

    • Evident - Author
      December 13, 2016 at 9:05 am

      Maybe a second Feral Rage or Druid of the Claw for a taunt.

    • Simon
      December 21, 2016 at 7:27 am

      I replaced it with a defender of Argus. Little worse against the pirates and stuff, but a good deal better against decks like Reno and rogue that can just burst you dead over 2 turns.

    Replacement for raven idols and brann?

        No point in buying it anymore…

    • Total Hearthstone Noob
      December 6, 2016 at 3:16 am

      Kolento said in the stream that Thalnos, or even second Feral Rage, is a good replacement instead of Brann.

    • Alex
      December 6, 2016 at 8:57 pm

      raven idol: any cheap 1-cost (decent) spell, like claw or naturalize

      brann: kind of essential, but i suppose maybe another feral rage or auctioneer

      • Zuba
        December 6, 2016 at 11:42 pm

        Brann is in no mean essential…

        • TrucEtrange
          December 17, 2016 at 2:42 am

          Jade golems are sooooo slow, brann lets you ramp much faster by spawnning 2 golems at a time with jade spirit, aya and jade behemoth, and it can do a nice combo with the ancient of war

          • Beehan
            December 19, 2016 at 12:28 am

            Be careful with ancient of war. Brann doesn’t do what you want there bc ancient of war is a choose one, not a battlecry.

  10. Sandrock

    i know this is probably a dumb question but, replacement for fandral?

    • Evident - Author
      December 4, 2016 at 4:08 pm

      Second Feral Rage, although it’s weaker without Fandral.

    • Jake
      December 4, 2016 at 6:34 pm

      Barnes is good if you’re running thalnos as well

  11. Paulie D
    December 4, 2016 at 11:46 am

    Great deck. Went from 17-10 in a couple days.
    Took out Brann for a second Feral Rage. Brann felt like a “Win more” piece, whereas FR can stall weapon warrior for a two (sometimes even two) and the synergy with Fandral is just amazing.

    • Alex
      December 6, 2016 at 8:58 pm

      I’d never call Brann “win more”; it’s the hallmark of many control/tempo archetypes

      • Giancarlo
        December 25, 2016 at 8:47 pm

        “win more”, mean that if you are winning, you will probably win easily.
        But if you are a Little bit behind during the game, you will probably still behind with Brann.
        I think he right.

    as for vs agro I haven’t had a lot of problems. Aside from a terrible mulligan once in a while and/or just terrible draw order if you aren’t adjusting your mulligan to the class type than yea it’s probably not working very well. 90% of the time you should be pressing hard for early removal and ramp in mulligan, keeping anything else without those in hand is setting up for failure against faster decks.

  13. canospam
    December 3, 2016 at 6:32 pm

    been enjoying this deck type. If you draw into your ramp, gg. Otherwise just learning to stall the game till you can build. I did replace I think an azure with Harrison, felt Harrison is mandatory right now and it has been a great swap thus far.

    been testing jade druid decks like this and they are not even close to be playable on such an aggro meta , u need time to develop the jade golems and youre overpaying for them all of the time , the only reason a deck like this can barely compete is because it has the previous pool of cards of the malygod/token druid that protects you like aow and fandrall , but honestly you gain so few from the new cards on the first turns , and u only get real value by turn 7-8 when u are basically screwed.

    Aya or Staghelm?Stahelm is good but i dont really play druid that much and aya is for 3 classes and im rly curious

    • Evident - Author
      December 3, 2016 at 8:46 am

      I would still say Staghelm is the safer craft, but the Jade decks haven’t had enough time to settle into the meta.

    • Bahi
      December 5, 2016 at 1:00 am

      Aya is pretty good, you cant go wrong with crafting her.

  17. FuckLogic
    December 3, 2016 at 6:45 am

    Ok,i replaced the ancient of war with Bog Creeper and i dont really wanna craft both legendaries aya and fandral will try it out now

    • Phantom
      December 4, 2016 at 10:48 am

      If you don’t have the legndaries I tried it with two arcane giants and it worked well

    A weak deck overall. No chance against aggro and C’thun decks. Early game is really weak, and you depend on having good draws. Also, you run out of cards in your hand very fast.

    Mediocre deck, at best.

    • Leroy
      December 6, 2016 at 1:45 pm

      I smashed 5 3 c’thun decks in a row brow

    • Alex
      December 6, 2016 at 9:04 pm

      That’s where your wrong, kiddo… Auctioneer with copious cheap spells fills your hand and combos nicely with fandral to achieve value on two fronts. The ramp up is ridiculous and jade behemoth/ancient of war stall time to increase jade count. Once this is done, top-deck the 100,000 jade idols in your deck from the combo-wombos and flood your board. The tempo is unbearable and the path there is usually quite fluid.

      Second Feral Rage and Auctioneer.

    • Alex
      December 6, 2016 at 9:04 pm

      Um.. effectually, non-existent. Don’t play this deck without those cards.

  21. Genewashy
    December 2, 2016 at 11:18 pm

    For those asking for an Ancient of Lore replacement: Try Sunfury Protector or Defender of Argus. They are more effective in the early game and add taunt activators to your deck. If you don’t want these go with a second feral rage.

  22. EstusFlakon
    December 2, 2016 at 10:47 pm

    garbage actually, so bad against aggro decks, theres is no earlygame , lost few games in a row

    • Gaee
      December 3, 2016 at 11:24 am

      I agree that in most of the time, the early game is not really strong, but I can’t tell how many games I won againts aggro decks by summoning big golens and taunts.

    • johnyDavive
      December 5, 2016 at 11:53 am

      Just beat 4 pirate aggro warriors in a row with that deck without Brann and raven idol, exchange it with loot hoarders and another FR and you will not regret it trust me.

  23. Arvin
    December 2, 2016 at 10:25 pm

    If I were to craft one legendary FIRST, should it be Fandral or Blackpaw?? HALP Evident

  24. Fhritp
    December 2, 2016 at 9:59 pm

    What an u r place Avenue idols with?

  25. Mobius
    December 2, 2016 at 6:14 pm

    If I don’t have staghelm, should I craft him, or is there another card I can use instead?

  26. Lexiles
    December 2, 2016 at 3:06 pm

    Very good deck still I wasn’t convinced by Emperor Thaurissan and I’m not by Brann I play Ragnaros instead and it’s insane in this meta. I tested Arcane Giant but with the ability to summon big jade golems the giants are useless.

  27. SKMojo
    December 2, 2016 at 2:32 pm

    What could I replace Ancient or War with?

    • Evident - Author
      December 2, 2016 at 2:36 pm

      Second Feral Rage could work.

    • Bahi
      December 5, 2016 at 1:03 am

      Dark Arakoa (the 5 7 taunt) can work too, as it costs 1 less mana (that’s Pavel’s idea actually in Malygos Druid)

  28. Blake Arlowe
    December 2, 2016 at 11:14 am

    What can I use to replace Aya and brann? I sadly don’t have those cards yet.

    This- right here, is the new cancer.
    Priest player myself,usually rank 5ish, tried all decks, dragon priest got me to rank 18,and after i lost to this deck, well, a mill version of this deck, this deck right here got me to 14 on a win streak 🙂
    I LOVE IT.

    Bug on Jade Behemoth – it has a blue strip in the decklist indicating that it’s a rare, but it’s actually a common card (should be green then).

          December 2, 2016 at 8:42 am

    completely forgot about her 😐

    Would a 2nd ancient of war be good on this deck?

    Decklist not updated, kolento subbed out emperor for brann halfway.

  34. budderboymania552
    December 1, 2016 at 10:27 pm

    I myself have brann over emperor and liking it. I can see why the discount would be good (to help with auctioneer combos) but the brann synergy really helps to accelerate your golems. Super fun deck to play

  35. Pixlh
    December 1, 2016 at 10:07 pm

    My games have never lasted long enough to need thaurisson, but brann is amazing. I dont have the ancient of war but its working just fine without.

    • budderboymania552
      December 1, 2016 at 10:28 pm

      Yeah ancient of war isn’t necessary but it’s SOOOOO good against aggro and aggro warrior is running the meta right now and in a deck with only one healing card I think that 5/10 taunt really helps

  36. Jim
    December 1, 2016 at 9:25 pm

    This deck has a lot of great synergy and game play options, even though the plan is dead simple. I’m still on the fence about Thaurissian over Brann but experimentation puts them on par with each other. I feel brann may be “win more.”

    Overall awesome deck and the addition of auctioneer takes the deck over the top!

    • lance

    Brann is not good in this deck? because i use him

    • Evident - Author
      December 1, 2016 at 7:04 pm

      He’s worth experimenting with, it’s too early to tell if he’s a staple of the deck.

  38. Ryan Desmond
    December 1, 2016 at 6:38 pm

    Is emperor necessary? I have him but I want to throw in a brann for the jade battlecrys. Your thoughts?

    • Evident - Author
      December 1, 2016 at 6:42 pm

      I haven’t had a chance to play this too much, but I did like Emperor because he enabled more draws from Auctioneer. Brann is worth exploring though.

  39. Anarky
    December 1, 2016 at 6:05 pm

    Such an awesome deck! I’m absolutely tearing through others with this! I only had enough for a single legendary, so I got Fandral because it’s more important, and Aya is mostly just insurance that the Jades are big. Works extraordinarily well.

    • Uyeah
      December 1, 2016 at 7:07 pm

      What are you running in her place?

      • budderboymania552
        December 1, 2016 at 10:23 pm

        Uyeah I just tested the deck a bit without Aya it’s REALLY strong. For what I replaced Aya with, I just put in rag. There’s 4 ramping early cards in this deck and so you can get rag out pretty early plus I mean can’t go wrong with rag

    • budderboymania552
      December 1, 2016 at 9:54 pm

      I’m interested a to what you are running in her place as well. I have all pieces to the deck but Aya and it’s too early for me to justify crafting her what’d you replace her with?

  40. TheRobe
    December 1, 2016 at 1:44 pm

    With all this ramp, what are we ramping into? Seems to be missing a bit at the top end like Ragnaros.

    • VTFlav
      December 1, 2016 at 2:21 pm

      ramp/cycle into jade golems. gadgetzan + jade idol, rinse and repeat

    • Obvious
      December 1, 2016 at 2:26 pm

      Auctioneer + jade idol.
      You play 1 mana X/X golems that draw you cards at 1 point.

    Replacement for Fandral Staghelm? I am poor 🙁

    • Evident - Author
      December 1, 2016 at 1:23 pm

      Second Feral Rage maybe, although it’s obviously weaker without Fandral.

    • Paul
      December 1, 2016 at 3:28 pm

      Honestly, without Fandral to abuse the Jade Idol don’t bother.

      • Solomon
        December 1, 2016 at 5:34 pm

        What? This deck works great without Fandral, I don’t even include him in the first place && with great results.

      • Benis
        December 1, 2016 at 7:13 pm

        I just played a game with this deck and i didn’t even draw a Jade Idol until right before I killed him.
