Strategy[edit | edit source]
Dreamway Guardians is somewhat similar to Echoing Ooze, swapping out its ability to replicate buffs for Lifesteal. The card has two main uses: using its Tokens for board presence or its healing for healing synergy.
For token decks, the Lifesteal portion of Dreamway Guardians is relatively unimportant, but can be made use of in an aggressive mirror or following up on Crystallizer. However, the two 1/2 bodies are incredibly strong. They're fairly hard to clear if played on the second turn, giving the druid bodies to cast Power of the Wild, Blessing of the Ancients, or Soul of the Forest on. It also synergizes with Crystalsong Portal, functioning as minions without actually being minions in your hand.
For healing-based decks, the Lifesteal is quite valuable. Dreamways Guardians is a cheap source of renewable health gain, potentially awakening Lucentbark multiple times. Like in Token Druid, they benefit nicely from wide buffs, ramping their damage and healing up.
Lore[edit | edit source]
Dreamway Guardians apparently summons crystal dryads, a mysterious form of dryad mainly found in Crystalsong Forest. Next to nothing is known about them, other than their strange crystalline appearance, presumably a result of the magical energies that pervade the forest.
The name "Dreamway" may suggest a link to the Emerald Dreamway, a location within the Emerald Dream from which World of Warcraft druid players can travel to various locations on Azeroth through portals, each of which is guarded by dryad gatewardens. However, Crystalsong Forest is not one of the locations accessible from the Dreamway.
