Wild format

With the start of the Year of the Phoenix, The Witchwood and all synergy cards have rotated to wild, making Hand Druid a wild-exclusive archetype. For more information, see Game format.

Reason to play this deck: 4-mana 7/7s (in Wisps).

Hand Druid is a Druid deck type introduced in The Witchwood expansion, which introduced Druid cards which synergize with a large hand size. Hand Druid shares similarities with Handlock, but with more focus on card generation than card draw and using a midrange style play. Unlike Token Druid, its early turns consists of playing an early LegacyMountain Giant and a powered up LegacyTwilight Drake or The WitchwoodBewitched Guardian, then closes out the game with consistent value generation followed by AoE buffs for burst damage.
