Rotation Archetype Overview
Aggro Forestcraft is a deck archetype that has been around for as long as one can remember. It utilizes many low-PP followers, such as Fairies, to quickly rush the opponent. This deck is quite unique for an aggro deck, as it also has the potential to control the field using cards such as Wood of Brambles and Insect Lord. This deck may be difficult to manage at first, but with high proficiency, it can take down any deck in the format!

Rotation Core Cards
Wood of Brambles: This single amulet is able to shut down certain matchups and it makes it much more difficult for the opponent to get rid of your followers. This card is searchable via Starry Elf, since this is the only amulet in the deck.
Fairy Driver: This card is the main source of burst damage in the deck and it is often recommended to be played on turns 7 or 8 (or later), accompanied by 3 or 4 fairies, respectively.
Greenglen Axeman: This card has taken the place of Ipiria after the card adjustment as a new finisher. However, this card functions quite differently, sacrificing an explosive, one-hit damage (like by Ipiria) for persistent damage.
Rotation Alternative Options
Rotation Budget Options
Rotation Deck Mulligans
Fairy Whisperer: Although it has very low stats, this card is extremely important in generating Fairies that will be used in future turns for board presence and combos.
Other 2-PP followers: All 2-PP followers in this deck have great effects and it would be good to keep them also.
Insect Lord / Elf Song: These cards are generally only kept as a set with other cards, especially Fairy Whisperer. Try not to keep these if you are missing crucial turn 1~3 plays in your opening hand.
Wood of Brambles: This card, along with Starry Elf that searches for it, is high priority against Forestcraft, Shadowcraft, and Portalcraft (or any decks that utilize a bunch of small followers) opponents.
Rotation General Gameplan and Tips/Tricks
The first few turns are of vital importance. Mulligan aggressively for a 1-PP follower and try to follow the mana curve and flood the board!
Sometimes, it is worthwhile to hold on to a few fairies to use it in combination with Insect Lord or Elf Song.
This is one of few aggro decks that is also proficient in board control, through the use of cards such as Wood of Brambles, Rayne, Elf Smith, and Airbound Barrage.
Use Leaf Man in certain matchups not only as a damage boost, but to protect followers from effect damage.
