This deck is a beast. It has fewer tools to deal with high HP monsters than its predecessor, so you if you face many of those you should consider slipping in a Crackle or two. I swapped one Dedender of Argus for one Sludge Belcher (can't afford to forge one now since I am saving for Dr Boom), but it worked out fine. I climbed from 18 to 8 in just over an hour, and I dropped only two games (pwnd by Flamestrike and Consecration). I have not used Healing Wave at all, so I am considering using one Crackle in its stead. What do you guys think? I never win the duels anyway.

Can i change mana tide totem for another 3 mana card like feral spirit?

 

The important thing is to replace it with card draw, thats its primary function. Gnomish Inventor or something similar.

Thoughts on swapping Bloodlust with Mistcaller or another chow?

 

Liking mistcaller to get the guaranteed bonus instead of just the one turn from BL.  Helps buff the valiant etc.

Either is ok.

Not a huge fan of Mistcaller personally, it's just too slow the turn that you play it. You're welcome to try it out though.

Replaced 1x Lighting storm and 1x Piloted Shredder with 2x Drainae Totemcarver and it seems to pay off as a 4 mana minion with usually 6/6 or 7/7

Had a tough time countering a druid with Shade of Naxx with this deck, lightning storm came out too late to make a difference. Not convinced it is enough of a problem to swap in an Ogre, but I would like to hear your thoughts.

If you play against druid, try to mulligan for the Storm. Although it only kills the Shade, it can sometimes save you. Druid sometimes let the Shade grown until turn 9 where it does 8 damage with savage roar (total of 22 damage). You also want to have a taunt most of the times (not only because of the shade). Also try not to waste Hex, simple as that. 

 

Sadly, there is not much you can do with a Low Budget deck. Shaman is also one of the worst classes to ladder with and there are better decks to use. Druid, on the other hand, is one of the strongest classes out there. Tempo storm rates it as a Tier 1 deck and I fully agree. If you want to main shaman, I discourage you from doing so.

Honestly, if a Druid player is spending 3 Mana on a Shade and then not attacking with it for several turns, you should be able to use that time to get far enough ahead on board that it doesn't matter. Just focus on development and ignore the Shade if you can't interact with it, at some point if you get yourself far enough ahead, you will force the Shade out of hiding to deal with a Thunder Bluff or Fire Ele or something, at which point you can just Earth Shock it and remove it easily.

 

I would very rarely just Lightning Storm a Shade.

Hello Sottle,

 

Thirst of all thank you for your guide, it is fun to play. I run some combination of this deck and your deck called 'cheap' (with the haunted creepers but no legendaries). My question is: wat is the best strategy against handlock. I loose basically every game without the slightest chance. Already from turn 4 or 5 problems start when an ancient watcher, drake and/or a giant are taunted. It feels like I need a flame tongue totem, a hex and an earthshock, which rarely happens. Is there any gameplan you would advice?

Honestly, your matchup is not that bad against Handlock, your spells line up pretty nicely against them. Earth Shock for Drakes, Hexes for Giants etc. It's not as good as it used to be several expansions ago, but it's still winable.

 

Just try and focus on building an annoying board of sticky creatures and use your inefficient answers when you can, keep the perfect ones for an emergency. What that means basically, if is if you can remove a Giant by trading minions with a Flametongue or other minions, do that first and keep your Hex in hand for when you have no other option. Don't overextend too much into their AoE unless you have plenty of resource to follow up afterwards. There's a lot of small things in the matchup, but those are the main two tips I can give.

Saving dust for a legendary card. What do you suggest me to put in this deck?

Al'Akir or Dr. Boom. Boom will be much more versatile for other decks if you don't have many cards.

Can I replace something with Doomhammer? I think it would replace Bloodlust, just fits better as a finisher IMO, but I want input from someone else.

This is a very sick hand and it does not cost a lot, I have finished many games early with this and also had nice turn a rounds with this.

      A new Tavern Brawl has been introduced this week by Ahune the Frost Lord himself.
      In this Brawl, you will play as either Uther or Jaina. They both have premade decks and Uther is reportedly slightly better than Jaina, which is interesting since Mage usually dominates in Tavern Brawls.
      Here is Uther's deck:
      Jaina uses a Reno deck, minus the Reno:
      Both heroes are immune to damage and they cannot be healed nor keep armor. The only way to damage them is by killing the Ragnaros? minions. These are 1/4 minions and there is one of them at each side of the board. They cannot attack and upon death they deal 4 damage to the opponent of the current player. This means that you can kill both minions (the one on your side and the one on your opponent's side) and your opponent will take all the damage. Moreover, once a Ragnaros? dies, a new one will appear thus making it possible to kill multiple of them in one turn.

      Some tips you should know:
      If the game reaches the fatigue stage, in the next round the enemy that has the least amount of health will automatically die and their opponent will be crowned as the winner. At the moment, Ice Block and Eye for an Eye seem to be bugged and they are not working as intended. This will be fixed soon. Bomb Squad and Ancient Curse deal no actual damage to you, so don't be afraid! This is the 110th Brawl and it's part of the Frost Festival. If you want to find out more about the Frost Festival, check our main article on it.

      As Ragnaros' Midsummer Fire Festival has ended, it is time for Ahune the Frost Lord to take over with the Frost Festival! 
      As we explained in our previous post, this is a holiday that celebrates Arena mode. Once you log in the game, you will see that Ahune is giving you a free Arena ticket for this week. This will happen for the entire duration of the festival, so in total you will get three free Arena keys.
      You will also get a free win each time you start an Arena run, whether it's from a free or a purchsed entrance key.
      You will also get a quest to play three Arena games. This weekly quest awards you with a Knights of the Frozen Throne card pack. Once again, you will receive this quest next week and the week after that accounting for a total of three Knights of the Frozen Throne packs (assuming you complete the quests).

      Feel free to check out our Arena guides and card rankings before you step into the Arena!
      As far as the themed Tavern Brawl called Ahune's Superior Brawl is concerned, you can read more about it here.
      The Frost Festival has created speculation for the next expansion. Since it will run for three weeks, it is going to end on August 9. The day after that, August 10, is thought by many to be the date that Knight of the Frozen Throne will be released.

      Well, after the failed interview with Ben Brode and his dreams of being a Hearthstone developer squashed, the Lord of the Scourge decided to prove himself an accomplished entrepreneur and take what he's naturally good at - making ice - and adding cream. And so, behold the new ICC, Arthas' latest wondrous edifice: the Ice Cream Citadel.
      Of course, true to form, Blizzard took this little in-joke all the way and will have the Ice Cream Citadel, an actual ice cream shop, at the Petco Park Interactive Zone in San Diego near San Diego Comic-Con®, featuring two flavors: Villain-illa and Scourgeberry Sorbet.
      Blizzard (source)

      Greetings, mortal whelps!
      As part of my efforts to prove to the accursed Brode that I possess the necessary experience to command the Hearthstone development team, I have decided to expand my efforts to all aspects of mortal enterprise.
      At first I considered peddling power and vengeance, but according to my focus testing, the foremost human craving seems to be for cold, creamy, sweetened sludge. I have decided to create a frozen-cream sugar-ooze unlike any you have ever tasted. You will desire it.
      Prepare yourselves for the grand opening of Ice Cream Citadel, a fortress of refreshment in the scorching heat that afflicts this place. I will be on hand to personally help you conquer the heat with free ice cream. You need spend no money for your first taste of my power.
      Choose from an endless selection of TWO flavors:

      Behold my tasteful brochure:

      Attend the Petco Park Interactive Zone in San Diego near San Diego Comic-Con® and be guided to your just desserts by this map:

      You may also take photographs of me with no immediate fear of retribution. Share proof of your delicious ice cream conquests on social media using the #icecreamcitadel “hashtag,” whatever that means.
      Begin preparations for your journey now. Ice Cream Citadel will receive supplicants between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. PDT July 20 through July 22, and 9:00 am to 5:00 pm PDT on July 23.
