Really proud to submit my entry for the Hall of Legends :) I have been playing since the open beta and listening to the show since pretty much the beginning, but with a 2 year old daughter most months recently have been struggling to find time to even make it ‘Dad Legend’.
Last month I made good progress in the first couple of weeks of the month playing Egg Druid on the wild ladder and decided to make a bit of a push. Getting to rank 5 I had around an 80% win rate but then things definitely got a bit tougher. I ended up making a couple of changes to the deck - originally it had 2 defender of argus, I dropped one initially for a poison seeds (taunts are the thing that just kills this deck and since most of my minions are small I figured it might actually be a buff in some cases). The problem with this was that it doesn’t actually help to push damage through the taunts as the Treants can’t attack straight away. I considered Black Knight but thought it would be too slow so I ended up with a Spell Breaker. This was definitely clutch in some games (particularly good against Spike Ridged Steed, Sludge Belcher and Alley Armoursmith).
I ended up bouncing back and forth between 2 and 1 for a couple of days as the end of the month approached. So I decided to take a day off work to make a final push and managed to hit a 6 game win streak and push over the edge.
I’ve included some stats along with the deck list - Win rate for the season overall was 65% (for the games I tracked) and win rate was positive against most classes (Renolock and Aggro Beast Druid were the only sub 50%)
Keep up the good work on the show, its always a great listen, and good luck to Dan and the rest of the listeners in making it to Legend!
All the Best From the UK,
