Hi Sottle, do you recommend to get at least 1 Bloodlust into mid-shaman? As sometimes I am able to tempo and bring opponent to 10+hp but then get a board-wipe. As mid-shaman looking for tempo nicely and have few minions on board, how about add bloodlust just to serve as 1 finisher? If yes, which card you suggest to replace it with?

Tried it, found it too gimmicky and unnecessary. In a slower deck it might be ok, but this deck is quite fast and wants to have minions on the board so Ele Destruction is counter intuitive.

Not really midrange. Its more like evolve. With that said ive found more success running skull crack in all 4 of my shaman decks (aggro. Midrange. Evolve. Totem) Skull crack is a savage and with totem golem and value C'thun creatures running around in the format. 4 dmg is exactly what you need.

Tunnel Trogg is kind of core and one of the big reasons why Shaman is a successful class again, but Argent Squire is probably the best replacement.

Hello,

 

Thanks for the deck, works great. 3 things. First, how agressive is this deck, should I go face unless my enemy would get a favorable if I dont trade or should I go face all the time like hunter use to or finnaly, should I trade when it's favorable for me and otherwise go face? Second question, would totemcarver be good in this deck? finally, I find that I have a hard time againt the deathrattle combo, anything to help? (should I just play way more agressiv against them)?

 

Thanks for the deck and answering

I feel like this deck could use some more card draw. Maybe an acolyte or loot hoarder.

 

Absolutely not required in my opinion, you curve out so effectively.

Not, not a particularly strong card right now. Stats are too weak and the healing is fairly unnecessary with only Shaman in the meta really dealing a lot of burst damage.

It's fast in comparison to older Midrange Shamans which was a lot of Totem pass turns. This deck curves out aggressively, but you're playing for value on the board.

I play Sylvanas instead one Thing from Below. I find just another pile of raw stats unnecessary, when you already have Faceless. Also even if it gets cheaper, you still rather can't play it before turn 4 and past that point 5/5 isn't anything special. I mean, sure, it's nice when you can play 5/5 for 0 mana in late game, but I prefer something with actual impact on board. I also play play 1 Mana Tide, because it demands immediate answer and if it draws you 2-3 cards, you probably won already. This deck is hilariously strong when it has cards to play with.

Nah, Mistcaller is not a particularly good card, such a huge initial Tempo loss.

I use mistcaller tho. its been working great. boosts all minions. its more the timing when to use him. you should always use him when you have a advantage on the board and think its apropiate.smile.png

That is why he isn't that good. When you have board advantage, you usually have less cards in hand, which means it takes longer to gain the value back. Additionally, if you don't have a strong board position, he is a dead card in your hand.

      Aleco walks through a series of simple early-game decisions while playing an Unstable Evolution deck.
      "Simple early game decisions" and "multi-turn decisions" are the two most common requests I've been receiving since the start of this series, so I decided to do an episode that tackles both! In today's episode I navigate a series of relatively simple early-game decisions against an aggressive Hunter start with my Unstable Evolution Shaman deck.
      If you have any requests for future episodes of "What's the Move?", please feel free to reach out to me here on Icy Veins or via Twitter @Aleco_P. I prefer to always fulfill requests for new episodes if possible, and always love hearing feedback from the community which can help me improve on this series in the future. Don't be shy!

      Choose your champion for the upcoming Hearthstone World Championships to win free K&C packs!
      The biggest Hearthstone tournament of the year, the Hearthstone World Championship, is just around the corner! To help build up excitement for the tournament, players may now select a champion from among the 16 world championship competitors. Each round your champion advances in the tournament will reward you with more Kobolds & Catacombs packs. You can win up to 6 packs of K&C for selecting the winner of the tournament, so choose wisely! Once you've locked in your choice it can not be changed.

All you need to do is follow this link and select one of the 16 competitors. Personally, I'm sticking with Purple because he won me 3 packs at the Summer Championship and appears to be the favorite to win his group. Kolento and Surrender are two of the favorites to win the tournament, which would make them safe bets to win you some packs as well.

      After a couple of repeats, this is 2018's first new Tavern Brawl.
      This is a constructed Brawl, with the novelty that you can build a deck of any size. The rest of the cards will be Shadow Reflections, which is normally generated by the passive Hero Power of the Rogue Death Knight Valeera the Hollow. It should be noted that when you play second, you don't get the coin; you draw an extra card instead.
      Obviously, you don't want to make a deck of 30 cards, since you will have no Shadow Reflections (although people have had success even like this). However, you also don't want to make a deck of only 1-3 cards, given that the Reflections take actual spots in the deck and it will be hard drawing the cards you picked.
      By doing a quick research, it seems that Aggro Paladin and Aggro Druid are good picks. As is usually the case when some good decks surface, their counters are also created: in this case, it's Mage with Ice Lance and Combo Priest. Moreover, Quest Rogue has managed to make a surprise re-appearance from the dead in this Brawl. Lastly, a hilarious deck is the Hunter one with Mechwarper and Metaltooth Leaper.
      Good luck!
