Beast Druid is a Druid deck type. Beast druid is a board-centric deck that focuses on getting early board control and snowballing it into a win, using cards like Savage Roar and Power of the Wild. Unlike pure Aggro Druid, Beast Druid builds a more mid-range style, focusing more on Beast synergy with cards like Menagerie Warden.

The deck's early board presence with cards like Enchanted Raven, combined with Mark of Y'Shaarj gives Beast Druid immediate tempo to start. A collection of sticky minions such as Mounted Raptor and Stranglethorn Tiger, as well as board flood in the form of cards like Violet Teacher in combination with cheap spells, allows the deck to snowball into a strong board advantage mid-game, allowing the Druid to finish off the opponent with Druid of the Claw, Savage Roar or Swipe.

The deck can also run a light Murloc package with Finja, the Flying Star, which brings further value to the inclusion of The Curator in lists.

Beast Druid became a Wild deck due to much of its Beast synergy cards rotating out in the Year of the Raven without suitable replacements.
