link to decklist:


This deck offers an aggressive option for gaining and maintaining board control. This aids us in making it to the later parts of the game where many of the cards excel and the deck is overall strongest.


Through the early game if you against an aggressive deck, you will be looking to trade your minions for their minions.
If they achieve minions you can’t deal with, you can use some removal spells such as Lighting storm, Rockbiter weapon or defend yourself with Feral spirts and Hex however make sure to play your turn careful because of the overload effects of these cards.


In the mid and late game often trades minions is the correct choice or using taunt cards to allow you minions to attack safely. Remember this deck can have a lot of burst combos with the use of cards such as FlameTongue totems, Doomhammer combed with Rockbiter weapons so keep count close of your damage and decide whether to trade or go face.
Use of cards

Earth shock
Is a great card for dealing with cards such as Twilight Drake, Scarlet crusader as well as removing the effects of cards such as Cairne bloodholf and Sylvanus windrunner. Another target we can use the Earth shock for is getting though taunts such as Sludge belcher so that we can burst are opposition down or just maintain board control as Sludge belcher can be a pest to deal with.

Fire Elemental
Is a very strong card as it can trade well with many other cards and it does a heap of damage to face in addition it’s effect can be used as a removal or as added burst damage, when using the effect of Fire Elemental it is often better to use it for removal so we can gain board control.

Lighting storm
Is great board clear for the cost especially vs decks such as hunter and zoo as often their minions have around 2-3 health. Remember when using Lighting storm, unless you have a better play, to use your hero power or play your drake if you can, as you can get additional spell power for Lighting storm.

Mana tide totem
The great thing about this card is it will never cause card disadvantage as it draws a card at the end of your turn. However you want to try and protect this card for as long as you can to be able to get more draws from it you can do this by using cards such as Defender of Argus and Sludge belchers.

Rockbiter weapon
like the effect of the Fire Elemental this card is versatile, you can use it for removal, bursting you opponents by adding it to Doomhammer and it is also great for popping the Nerubain eggs.

FlameTongue totems
Much like the Rockbiter weapon you can use the FlameTongue totems for trading, it combos very well with the spiderlings from the Haunted Creeper, pooping the eggs, and finishing the enemy off with the extra damage.

Defender of Argus
This card is great! Allowing you to taunt up you eggs, or putting up meat shields for the Mana tide totem also again it can be useful for trading, bursting and removal.

Gnomish inventor
First time I saw this card in a shaman vs shaman game I thought I was playing against someone doing an f2p run.
Now I realise this card is very useful especially vs aggressive decks. Not only does it allow you to draw a card which when playing against aggressive decks is very useful because it often allows you to draw into some of your removal. But it also, by having 4 health, trades great against 3/2s which decks such as zoo have many of.

Yes it needs all caps.
This card can be used as removal, great vs cards with 2 health, or burst you opponent down which is best done by combing this card with Rockbiter weapons as DOOMHAMMER has wind fury it will allow you to do 10 damage spilt into 2 attacks on the turn Rockbiter weapons was played.

Sludge belcher
In my opinion this is by far is the strongest card currently in the game and there are very few decks I don’t include this card in.
It trades well with many aggressive early game cards such as flame imps and other 3/2 allowing it to often trade with more than one card and even if the your enemy has a card that can take it out in one shot they still have to deal with the 1/2 meaning that without the use of silences or spells your enemy with have to use at least 2 attacks on the Sludge belcher which will often save from taking a lot of damage to

the face.


Sludge belcher is also great for protecting your minions like your Mana tide totem or your FlameTongue totems allowing this cards to use their effects while safe from the enemy minions.

this card is great for allowing you to get early board control if you drew deathrattles with it, as It can trade into minions if it gets buffed enough for example if this card is buffed twice it can trade nicely into any 3/2s on the board and still survive.
As well as this it can pressure your opposition by dealing damage to the face. Often this card will force your opposition to use removing which is great since this card is only 1 Mana.

Haunted Creeper
This is a another card I greatly underrated but it trades very well with 2/1s such as leper gnomes and 1/1s it also can trade well with also once you pop the Haunted Creeper the 2 spiderlings can trade into 3/2s allowing you to sometimes get a 2 for 1.

Cards to mulligan for:
The main cards you want to search for are Undertakers, Haunted Creepers and Nerubain eggs I also like to keep Rockbiter weapon and depending on the starting hand will keep Harvest golems.


When against aggressive decks I will look for lighting storms and will sometimes keep Feral spirts depending on my hand, the reason I sometimes would consider not keep Feral spirts is it can often make your turn 3/4 just too weak however it is situation dependent, and usually I would not consider it a mistake to keep them 
Finally when playing against a warlock keeping an earth shock is often a good idea as it is very good when against handlock.
Well I think that’s all thank you very much for sticking with me I how this is useful to you and I look forward to feedback.

A creditable post, but not relevant to World of Warcraft. Moving this to a more appropriate section of the forum...

      ABOUT US
      We are a very social guild LFM for progression/semi-casual raiding and leveling. 
      When we say "semi-casual," we mean that we raid two days for three hours, can laugh about a wipe but are still serious about progression. We plan to do Normal raids (not for long) before going on to Heroic and Mythic.
      New players and all levels welcomed. We are VERY new player and new role friendly and have a few new players in the raid group already. We will work with you and get you trained up. So don't worry! 
      We do have some PvPers and an experienced RBG leader so PvP isn't out of the question.
      We're almost always on Discord and we joke around a lot. Some jokes aren't appropriate so keep that in mind. (Recommended 18+)
      Currently we are using the EPGP system ( The addon EPGP (DKP Reloaded), EPGP Lootmaster, DBM, and GTFO are required to be downloaded and kept up-to-date on raid nights.
      Fridays & Sundays 8pm - 11pm PST. (10pm - 1am Server Time.) NOTE: Flasks, foods, potions, and enchants will be provided for raiders on a first-come first-serve basis. People who contribute to the guild bank will also have preference. Guild repairs provided on raid nights. Trials will be provided with the aforementioned items if we can spare them after the main raiders. CURRENT PROGRESSION

      Hi everyone. Im currently playing enhancement shaman and I love the playstyle but usually when im in a dungeon I cant do as much damage as the others. For example my friend is playing a frost mage and he is doing 5 times my damage. He has heirlooms tho. There are some guys doing 15/20 k dps and im doing 1.5 at max. Im level 70 and I think im following my stats right. Im also trying to do my rotation right and I dont think thats the problem. There is my armory link: . Should I worry about my damage or its normal for this level and gear? :)

      i was wondering about a few trinkets as i'm trying to max my dmg since my guild will be trying myth soon (can't complain atm, dmg is quite good)
      Last night i got
      from Heroic Cenarius. I switched my 825 Devilsaur Shockbaton for it. Other trinket atm is 855 Faulty Countermeasure.
      What i'm wondering is, another Enha is running
      and the proc'd stats difference is quite significant, as CoW procs at 865 with 2,760 Crit/Mastery/Haste whereas Memento on 855 with sth around 4,5k same stats. Duration is different, 10s uptime CoW, 6s Memento. Still i feel like a Memento on 865 could outperform CoW, since it also hast alot Mainstat. Simcraft won't give me contructive feedback, no matter how ofter i run in (more than 10k actions). has anyone some info on these two trinkets?
      Is CoW good, or do i need to farm Maw of Souls again like a mad man (with this weeks teeming/necrotic not that easy)?
      Bonus Question: Couldn't dig up any information about FCM being nerfed for Enha, can someone enlighten me why it's not good anymore?
      Thx in advance!

      I am in need of help. My Doomhammer is currently on 887 itemlevel. From this weeks world boss I got 860 ilvl "Calamir's Jaw" which gives "Each target hit by crash lightning increases damage dealt by my next stormstrike by 2%. (which is semi ok).
      BUT my current one is a 850 ilvl "Torch of shaladrassil" with 10% increased attack speed when stormstrike proccs.
      So the question is, do I switch to the 860 ilvl one? It boosts doomhammer from 887 to 890. BUT i loose 10% attack speed. goes from 40% to 30%. Is it worth it? I feel stormstrike proccs alot and the attackspeed is very useful.
