Wild Growth full.jpg

Ramp Druid (also known as Big Druid) is a Druid deck type that takes advantage of Druid's unique ability to gain extra mana as a win condition. It usually builds a huge amount of high value minions and relies on late-game Taunts to stabilize and recover from its slow start. The deck can be very punishing against control decks due to the massive minions it can play, but suffers against fast aggro decks if not given time to stabilize.

The deck often aims to try to cheat out large threats very early through use of cards like Innervate, Giant Anaconda, and Strength in Numbers, as well as naturally being able to play them earlier due to its naturally faster mana growth thanks to Wild Growth, Jade Blossom and Overgrowth.

Ramp Druid is also the best host for the Journey to Un'Goro Druid Quest, Jungle Giants, which can be used to give an extra burst of tempo in the late game.
