I want to find a way to fit bloodlust in the deck, would make a nice finisher.  Maybe in place of devolve, i haven't used it yet in several games (10+), but it feels like a safety net that i hesitate to lose

If you feel like you need Bloodlust, then you probably don't need Devolve. And it's not like you can't revert the change later if it doesn't work out well for you.

Any advice on how to play this deck vs quest warrior? Maybe it's just a bad matchup, but I lose every time.

Quest Warrior should generally be a good matchup.  Generally you just want to focus on having a strong curve of midrange minions which warriors will typically struggle with.  Servant of Kalimos is also key as it allows you to flexibly pick minions for the situation, generally you will be wanting powerful minions like Blazecaller that can simultaneously remove an opposing minion and put a strong threat on the board.  Even if your opponent manages to get sulfuras, you will still be in a strong position as your hero power effectively counters them, allowing you to flood the board with totems to bait the Ragnaros shots

What are your thoughts on adding in Dirty Rat? The combo with hex is the only solid defense that I can think of against Quest rouge/mage. I just lose so many games against quest rougue, and this deck just isn't fast enough to counter them. I also don't have access to patches so I don't run any of the pirates you recommend, which could absolutely make a difference if I was able to add them in (I'm running two blazecallers and a jade spirit instead). I do have Dirty Rat though.

Dirty Rat goes against the goal of the deck, which is board domination. Dirty Rat is a hit-or-miss card, which is something you cannot afford as a midrange deck.
You can run more jades, such as Jade Spirit, or more elemental cards, such as Stone Sentinel, if you do not have Patches the Pirate.

The deck is not bad, but hasn't received much help this expansion. Luckily the meta so far is favourable for ele mid shaman, but time will tell.

We will rename the threads once we are done with conversion to the new archetype system.

Have made some changes on the suggested deck due to lack of some cards and tried it  with fair results (70% win rate).Do you think it might be used to climb up the ladder?I actually feel quite confident with a deck after trying a few of them!Any suggestion is well accepted!

The best way to find out is to try. I have been playing midrange elemental shaman today on NA and can say that the archetype is still strong. As for your deck, it should be fine. I would swap out Kobold Geomancer for Bloodmage Thalnos, but other than that it looks good.

Believe me,i would too,if i had the guy...!Thanks though,i think i will keep running this for a while longer, i like how it feels even when i lose,because it's never a hands down loss.So,either i have gotten some better as a player or the decks works really good...Or both!

      We have a new Tavern Brawl this week called "BY THE POWER OF RAGNAROS" (emphasis on the capitals)!
      Remember Emperor Thaurissan? Well just like his effect, the cards in your hand will have their mana cost reduced at the end of your turn during this Brawl.
      Other than that, you have to pick a class and make your own deck. We haven't had a Tavern Brawl like that in a while. OTK decks, mostly variations of Exodia Mage with Malygos, seem to have the upper hand so far.
      Let us know if you have any other suggestions for this Tavern Brawl!

      After Overwatch, Hearthstone is the next Blizzard game to get its animated short series.
      A series of Hearthstone animated shorts has premiered today with "Hearth and Home". The protagonist is Ava, a young girl who is lost in the cold woods, until she discovers the warm Hearthstone tavern. We also finally get to know the name of the Innkeeper, which is Harth Stonebrew.
      Other notable characters are Malto, the wise old Mage; Sarge, an adorable mouse; Fewz and Wick, the Goblin brothers; Lou, the most fabulous Paladin ever; Bertie, a female Gnome; Urk, a tough-looking Orc; and Velaris, an arrogant Blood Elf.
      The short features some top quality animation and is quite reminiscent of Pixar Studios works. Enjoy!

      The Supreme Lich King was defeated earlier today at Gamescom. He was the final boss of Hearthstone's very first Raid!
      After the new Fireside Gathering features were announced, it was time to see them in action! You all know that Gamescom is taking place this week and Blizzard has prepared many reveals and surprises. As far as Hearthstone is concerned, we got to see the new Fireside Brawl, a special Tavern Brawl that is available only during Fireside Gatherings.
      Everyone present in Gamescom had the chance to battle against the 1 million health Supreme Lich King! During this Brawl, you choose a hero and you are given a deck. Your hero starts at 9 mana and 20 health. When your hero dies, you discover a second hero and you are given a new deck and so on. Your total damage to the Lich King is shown at a scoreboard, after you defeat him. Obviously, the goal is for everyone participating in the gathering to work together to defeat him.
      The Brawl seems to scale depending on how many people are present. It also features several Brawl-specific cards and hero powers. You can get a better feel of it by watching this detailed video by Thijs:
      Apparently, the Lich King cannot be destroyed by summoning the 4 Horsemen from Uther of the Ebon Blade's hero power, as Amnesiac and Trump discovered.
      The Supreme Lich King was defeated today, Wednesday the 23rd of August. The participants in this Brawl actually got physical rewards, too, as you can see in this clip with Hafu and Dog (language warning).
      What do you think about this new Fireside Gathering feature?

      Maximum Effort is a new guild on Cenarion circle (A). I was the raid leader for my guild for a long time and we built up a strong raid team. Due to do some dis-agreements between me and the guild leader I was forced to leave. But luckly enough a lot of my team followed me! We're working to build a guild focused around team work and group progression. We love doing mythics, raids, talking and theory crafting about the game!
      We have a very strong-core raid group, capable of clearing heroic and doing some mythic but we're just missing a few people to round it out!
      Raid nights.. Tue/wed 6-830pm server (9:30-11:30 est) Off night Monday 6-830pm server (9-11:30 est)
      Looking for.. -Any and all dps specs
      - Non pally or holy priest healer!
      All raid mats and needs are covered by guild, we run personal look just for the ease of it.
      My btag is Hethrus#1504 if you have questions or wish to try out!
