Mike Donais has mentioned a counter to Jade Druid in Knights of the Frozen Throne a few times already. Tonight is the night where that promise is finally fulfilled. Meet Skulking Geist, a 6-Cost 4/6 that destroys all 1-Cost spells in both player's hands and decks. Goodbye Jade Idol. Goodbye, Evolve. Get rid of Priest's Power Word: Shield, Potion of Madness, and Pint-Size Potion.
It is worth noting that some opponents would welcome the removal of low-cost minions, helping them ensure their late game cards are drawn instead. In other matchups, Skulking Geist can an overcosted, vanilla card due to no 1-Cost cards existing in your opponent's deck. Control Paladin, Secret Mage, and other decks don't even run spells at that mana cost.
