As nice as it is to see a somewhat different Druid than the norm, i think you should redo this :)

I donīt mind the Grizzly, the Gorgon Archer and the Falcons.
But i would put more Vine Creatures in.

Vine Snapper/Thornlasher is just a ton better than Bitterwood Foxes..

Besides its a lot easier to use Meditation Amulet if you have more Vine Creatures, so you can Meditate and get a
creature out.
I know they canīt move but you can just add 4 Lesser Teleports, else Raptor Vines can move.

I also really like Corrosive Orchid. You only have 1 crumble so it seems good.

Id also take Bloodspine Walls over the Corral Reef - not only to save 3 sbp a piece, but they can be cast by the Vine Tree.

Wispwillow Amulet seems overdoing it - is there any urgent use for it?
Atm your not really getting that much out of Druids Leaf Ring.

Rather than Mend, Minor Heal, Heal and Renewing Rain i would usually go with Meredias Blessing, Renewing Spring, Mohktari in a nature book anyway. Heal on a Mage Wand should be a good way to keep your Grizzly alive though. For the Mage Wand you might add a Cure.

I like Wychwood Ironvine in a Druid book - with that and Barkskin your unlikely to need much more defense early on.

Mana Syphon is cool - and usually very annoying for your opponent, but with your planned opening you are going to play it rather late. Other baller options could be: Banish, Purge Magic, Steal Equipment, Steal Enchantment

Have fun!

Agree with everything biblo has said but would like to add might remove a mage wand, leaf ring and coral wall. Rather blood spine since in school, not fan personally of leaf ring and rather add few more incanjuration instead

I actually think a leather belt serves a Druid for cheaper. She has so many other ways of getting Regrowth I don't see the iron vine mattering.

Thanks guys,

There are some things that I will change after reading your comments and playing it (I lost against my brother the priest). My goal was to make an all-rounder, but it seems not a good idea to let go the strengths of the druid. I will re-do this and go for a more 'standard' druid so I can beat my brother next time!
