New Druid Spell - Survival of the Fittest

    Tried my hand with a little theorycrafting with this as a centerpiece.

    Came up with this.

    A bit of all-in on the ramp to get the big minions out with the Kael'thas Sunstrider and Fluffy Fight combo as the swing turn. I think a big problem of this deck is draw. Not enough draw to build the combo.

    The current meta card draw of druid doesn't fit:

    Settled with Nourish since it gives flexibility of more ramp or card draw.

    I want to try it out but doesn't look great lol. This card might be better as a top end card of a token druid.

    Not sure about this card ... 

    Right now the only thing i can think of that this card will see some play is in Combination with Kael'thas Sunstrider

    I think we might be surprised. The powerlevel of this card is definitely high, so who knows what kind of deck can get build around this.

    True ... and the more i think about it, the more i think this will see play - not only for Kael'thas. Could also work in some sort of Big Ramp Druid.

    Honestly it doesnt have to be a BIG ramp druid, just a midrange/tempo ramp druid that can rely on other things but ramp and when he does ramp, it will play similar to Nautilus and Deep mechanic in Runeterra, making your midrange-y minions into giants.

    I'm so scared of this card. Druid can cheat mana (ramp and innervate like card) plus Kael'thas Sunstrider...

    Big Druid can raise again, but the card is undeniably "slow"...maybe too slow to be used as finisher in some token deck

    If you're playing a Druid deck that cares about buffing your deck, as that's what most targets of Survival of the Fittest will be, why not just run Embiggen instead? Embiggen can be played earlier in the game, allowing for more buffed minions and for those buffs to be more impactful sooner as well as the fact that you don't need a 4 card combo with Kael'thas Sunstrider if you wanted the Survival of the Fittest buffs earlier. Embiggen is just more efficient and consistent for a buff game plan than Survival of the Fittest.

    For glory, honor, and gold!

    I don't know...

    Like, you want this to hit as many Minions as possible, but if you want to make this work with Kael'thas Sunstrider, you'd have to run a considerable Amount of Spells.

    Long, drawn-out Control Match-ups with Boardclears en masse and an unbelievable amount of greedy cards?

    Embigger druid. I get the feeling I'm gonna hate playing against this.

    If this gets crazy, this will finally make Kel'thas get the nerf he deserves.

    Really nice card for slow decks, borderline broken

    All hail the banshee queen.

    Only with Kaelthas can you make this work. Otherwise, you need to basically get a free turn while having ten mana. Or use Lightning Bloom

    I'm afraid for my sanity if this sees play in a competitive deck... or decks.

    Since ramp Druid is currently viable, I'm scared my fears will come true.

    Strong card, but I'm hoping I'm overreacting.

    I'm dreading the day when this gets cheated out really early using Innervate and/orLightning Bloom!

    Powerful effect but I can’t see it being used all that often.

    Damn, I love this card. I think it's probably not going to destroy the meta or anything, but it's something I'll certainly be messing around with. Probably in Wild, where you can better take advantage of the effect.
