Opinions on my Totem Shaman deck?

2 posts in this topic

Hey everyone, mediocre deck builder here. I love experimenting with new decks and wanted to try a new totem shaman deck after Blizzard´s patch reworking shaman/aggro cards.

Note: This deck is made for AFTER Blizzard´s next patch.

Decklist:

2x Totemic Might

1x Evolve

2x Lightning Bolt

2x Primal Fusion

2x Spirit Claws

2x Flametongue Totem

2x Totem Golem

2x Hex

2x Tuskarr Totemic

2x Mana Tide Totem

2x Thunder Bluff Valiant

1x Bloodlust

2x Thing from Below

2x Master of Evolution

2x Azure Drake

2x Fire Elemental

If you hadn´t noticed already, its a very cheap deck to make because of the lack of epic and legendary minions.

Strategy

Flood the board with totems early game and control the board with Totem GolemSpirit ClawsLightning Bolt, etc.

Try to buff at least 2 or more totems with Totemic Might Early game to give the totems more survivability. 

Bloodlust Can get you the early win if you have enough totems on the board.

Evolve Is a good card for having lots of smallish minions on the board and can sometimes give you a charger to close the game.

Azure Drake Combines well with Spirit Claws and draws a card. (Who doesn´t love some good card draw?)

Master of Evolution A master of evolution. Need I say more? Yea, probably. He curves perfectly with Tuskarr Totemic and can turn that 3/2 body into a 4/5 minion or something more useful. What could possibly go wrong?

Final Additions

This the first deck I´ve tried to explain on a website, and I´m not too great at building decks so if you have any questions or thoughts put them in the comments so I can reply and add them to the explanation.

It's always good to experiment, that's how all the great archetypes of the game came to be. As far as this deck goes it looks very similar to a standard Totem Shaman, which isn't a bad deck (I play with it from time to time).  Sottle has a Totem Shaman build on the site that's pretty good if you want to check it out, take notes or get ideas.

      The new meta is still forming, but even at this early stage it seems that Kazakus will be a large part of it. This article shows all of the available potions, and explains how the ordering of the spells when cast is likely to change.
      The first trick to remembering all of the options is to realise that  in the potion creation stage, nearly all of the choices are fundamentally the same no matter whether the spell costs 1, 5, or 10 mana. The cost of the spell simply powers up the effect. There are ten different effects to choose from, which are outlined below. The spells are remembered more easily when you group the effects by numbers.
      1, 2, 3 effects:
      Icecap: Freezes 1, 2, or 3 enemy minions.
      Ichor of Undeath: Summons 1, 2, or 3 friendly minions that died this game.
      Kingsblood: Draws 1, 2, or 3 cards.
      Shadow Oil: Adds 1, 2, or 3 random Demons to your hand.

      Other effects in number order:
      Felbloom: Deals 2, 4, or 6 damage to all minions. 
      Goldthorn: Gives your minions 2, 4, or 6 extra health. 
      Netherbloom: Summons a 2/2, 5/5, or 8/8 demon.
      Heart of Fire: Deals 3, 5, or 8 damage.
      Stonescale Oil: Gives 4, 7, or 10 Armor.
      Mystic Wool: This card is unique in that it has no effect for 1 mana. It either turns a random enemy minion into a 1/1 Sheep, or all enemy minions into 1/1 Sheep.

      At the moment, many of the pairings work according to the game engine, rather than in the best order, which means that Kazakus is not working as intended. An example of this would be minions that are getting killed by damage are then getting frozen before leaving play. This is correct in terms of how the game works, as deaths are always processed last, but the spells are going to be made to work outside of the regular game engine. This will make them more powerful and intuitive.

      We are already working on this. Feel free to post stuff like this on our bug forums. (source) This reply on Reddit confirms that the idea of the custom Spell is that it will resolve in an order beneficial to the caster, and that it will likely be changed very soon.
