Decklist spotlight: Firebat's Patron Druid
[card]Grim Patron[/card] is supposed to be all about Warrior builds, right? Not if you're Firebat and feeling adventurous.
Patron Warrior was once the best deck in the game. After the nerf of [card]Warsong Commander[/card] it lost much of its original strength but continued to be a viable list, especially in tournament metagame. Despite the strength of its namesake [card]Grim Patron[/card] however, no other class really tried to make a Patron deck outside Garrosh's dominion. Why? No reliable activators for the card.
As it turns out, however, Druid has some. With [card]Moonfire[/card] and [card]Wrath[/card], Patrons can easily get out of control, not to mention the combination of cheap Druid spells like [card]Living Roots[/card] and [card]Raven Idol[/card] and [card]Wild Pyromancer[/card].
As with every good deck, a big Patron board is not the only win condition. There's [card]Malygos[/card] and [card]Yogg-Saron, Hope's End[/card] at the end of the curve, giving you an out if the Patrons don't finish the game.
