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.

hi, can i replace zombie chow for lightning bolt, or just replace him for annoy-o-trons?

 

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.

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.

      Two new cards were revealed by Asian streamers: an Epic neutral minion and the Paladin Spirit.
      The first card was unveiled by Chinese streamer LaLaLa on Douyu.

      The first thought that comes when looking at this card is that it's great support for Quest Hunter. The problem is support cards for this archetype were printed in previous expansions and the result was always the same. Untamed Beastmaster could definitely fit into a Beast deck along with Oondasta - and since they are both Neutral cards, this doesn't necessarily have to be Hunter. Hi'reek, the Warlock Loa, and his copies could benefit from the +2/+2 buff. Untamed Beastmaster could also find its place in a Beast Druid deck with minions like Charged Devilsaur and Tyrantus. These Warlock and Druid combos, though, sound a bit like win-more situations.
      The Paladin Spirit was revealed by Korean streamer (and dancer) Rhdgurwn.

      The text box may not be the final version as "stats equal to its Cost" is a bit vague, since it could mean a 4/4 or a 3/1 or a 1/3 or a 2/2. However, it would make sense that if you cast a 4-mana spell, the Spirit would summon a 4/4 Tiger and that's how we are going to treat it. At 4 mana, this different version of Summoning Stone seems a bit slow and definitely promotes a more Spell Control-oriented playstyle, which is what Paladin seems to be heading to in Rastakhan's Rumble. It definitely makes for a strong combo with Spikeridged Steed.

      It turns out that Dragon Warrior is definitely going to return in Rastakhan's Rumble and the Warrior Legendary Champion is proof of that!
      The card was revealed in the third episode of the Wronchi Animations series of videos for Rastakhan's Rumble (here is Part 1 and Part 2). Krag'wa the Frog is literally swallowing the opponent Annoy-o-trons, when War Master Voone shows up, astounding Garrosh in the audience.
      The video has an older version of the card, since it looks like the team decided that the final version of Voone is actually a 4-mana 4/3:

      The wording is slightly vague, but the copies are added to your hand. As shown in the video, this could work great with The Boomship. However, if you are playing expensive Dragons, I don't see how useful it would be to have more copies of them unless you are absolutely sure that the game is going to last long enough so you can play them all. There's also the problem that currently in Standard there aren't that many powerful Dragons and we've yet to see any new ones in Rastakhan's Rumble. Other than that, War Master Voone and the newly revealed Firetree Witchdoctor can work great in a Dragon Warrior deck and let it be noted that they are both Even cards.

      The Rogue Legendary Loa has just been unveiled!
      The reveal was made by MKRR3 on YouTube. The video is in Polish.

      Gral, the Shark can potentially draw you a minion but it is quite weak to Silence. Still, Rogue has quite a few ways to trigger the Deathrattle and now with Spirit of the Shark, it can trigger the Battlecry twice as well. At first sight, though, it feels like a weak card: Silence destroys it, high mana cost and Rogue traditionally runs quite a few small minions as well. It also doesn't seem to fit with the Pirate theme Rogue will have in Rastakhan's Rumble, altough perhaps we can see Beast Rogue with Oondasta and the recently revealed Untamed Beastmaster.
      What do you people think about this card?

      It seems that Dragons will have a big part in Rastakhan's Rumble as this versatile and cheap Neutral minion can Discover a spell if you are holding a Dragon!
      Hafu revealed this card on YouTube:

      We haven't seen any Dragons revealed so far, but it's safe to assume that they will have some kind of presence in Rastakhan's Rumble. People are already thinking that Dragon Warrior might be a thing, due to the reveal of Smolderthorn Lancer. The Discover component of this card makes it very versatile and probably a staple in Dragon decks to come, since it's undeniable that Dragons will keep being printed in future expansions. The potential is definitely there, but without having seen any other Dragons from the upcoming expansion it's difficult to talk about which classes Firetree Witchdoctor can find a home in.

      As the trend is in latest expansions, we have yet another minion that supports the Healing/Control Paladin archetype.
      The card was revealed by PhenomenGames on YouTube. The video is in Russian.

      (Source: Official Site)
      Paladin gets its own version of Hooked Reaver. It's not clear whether you need to restore Health on your hero or you can just heal any minion for this to work. A lot of cards have been printed in the latest expansions that promote this archetype of Paladin deck (even though Aggro Paladin always ends up winning) and maybe it is its time to shine. Other than that, Zandalari Troll Paladins are soon coming to World of Warcraft and it's good to see them in Hearthstone as well!
