Came up with this, wouldn't mind some feedback.

x3 Frostwildx3 Wisp
x3 Roar
x3 Packmaster
x3 Gemhide
x3 Prowlers
x3 Rootforged
x3 Restless Wanderers
x2 Bontanimate
x1 Prytobomb

Three card spots left over, accepting ideas for those three, and other suggestions for the deck.

Thoughts?

Spring Dryad is a great addition to this kind of deck; you're trying to put out as many creatures as possible, and Dryad benefits from that.

I personally like Grove Matriarch in this kind of deck, as well as Wildwood Sower.  Both are capable of producing multiple bodies, and Grove Matriarch is a solid chump-blocker (because it dies twice in the same lane).

Also, one warning: this kind of deck is extremely vulnerable to Grimgaunt Devourer/Predator.  You're throwing out a lot of bodies, and that means a lot of creature deaths.  If you find yourself up against those decks, make sure to level your Gemhides and Botanimates aggressively.

In a deck like this, I think Shardplate Delvers are generally better than Spring Dryads.  You've got enough spells and only Echowisp and Phytobomb to fuel the Dryads.  If you add in Grove Matriarchs and/or Wildwood Sowers (which are both good suggestions, btw, though I prefer the Matriarchs to the Sowers), that might push the deck over the edge into Spring Dryad territory.  But the two of them are both highly underrated rares, and I recommend them.

I'd think about Lifeshaper Savant, but it's probably a bit too slow.  Your deck really wants to put out some early beatdown and close the game out fast.  You may also want to consider a singleton Oxidon Spitter to help with robots matchups.

But time flows like a river... and history repeats...

I agree with the Dryads, but for some reason when I added them I couldn't get them off the ground.  They always seemed to be on the low-end when it came to leveling priority.

Not nearly enough spells for sower to be effective….but that could change easily by removing rootforged and doing some extra spell focus.

Matriarch is a solid idea.

Definitely not Phytobomb. That ruins your Echo Wisps. Gemhides you can probably get away with 2 of. I'd suggest going 3 of for Botanimate though. If you're running Frostwild Trackers, I'd suggest putting in Lifeblood Dryads. Between Echowisps and the Trackers, it's likely you're going to fill those lanes up. Deepbranch Ancients too might be an option.

Thanks for the feedback so far, guys  :)

 

Ximane, I tried adding a couple of more spells and adding the Sower (removed Rootforge), and it was good, but not quite the best Dryad engine.  You're right; both cards are underrated.  I think Shardplate would be ideal in the original vision for this deck.

-  Removing a Gemhide makes sense, as that would still effectively be four removal.

-  Hmmm, Ancients and Lifebloods.  I will need to consider them!

Running a comparable deck to great effect.

Added Rageborn helions, 3 of them.

Combined with rootforged avatars and prowlers they are beastly (because the breakthrough when blocked still does dmg)

Add in packmasters, echowhispst lifeblood dryads and ancients. 2 runegrove guardians. and 2 bashers

use echowhisps to fill up the board (rageborn are pretty beefy) then start building the threats

It either forces your opponent to agressively level epidemics/dreadbolts and stall savants. Or get out of level 1 with complete lack of board control. which results in a loss most of the time.

 

Fear GGD though :)
