Spreading Plague full.jpg

Taunt Druid (Also known as Plague Druid or Hadronox Druid) is a Druid deck type. It can be built based on either a Token Druid frame and summon many smaller Taunt minions or a control deck focused around Hadronox, which uses only a few middle to high-cost Taunt minions to get the most value out of Hadronox and get more uses out of it with Witching Hour, Carnivorous Cube, and Da Undatakah.

Master Oakheart is commonly used to activate a Dragon package with Dragonhatcher, Drakkari Enchanter, and a few big dragons such as Ysera and Primordial Drake, this use of Oakheart usually includes lower-cost 3-attack minions such as Greedy Sprite and Bright-Eyed Scout, since usually over 20 mana worth of stats are put on board the turn Oakheart is played. The second use of Oakheart is cheating out Mosh'ogg Enforcer, and Hadronox early, with this package usually including no other 3-attack minions.
