Literally have not won a single game with this deck. What am I doing wrong? It's supposed to be based around getting lots of minions on the board mid game right? I find myself having NO fucking minions to put up in the mid game. Or if I do they just get removed and I get shit on.

I'm on my 7th game with this deck, same results. Can't get anything on the board long enough to do anything. Oh and this deck has no board clearing power either.

There are 20 minions in this deck, not counting the 2 Flametongue Totems. Note also that your hero power summons more minions. So, I'm not exactly sure how you can have issues putting up minions on the board. In fact, 12-14 of the minions are mid-game minions.

 

You are not expected to achieve board superiority by just playing a bunch of minions. You need to do it by carefully and strategically taking out the enemy minions while keeping yours alive. Your healing totem allows your minions that survive to be healed up, and Rockbiter and Flametongue Totems allow your hero power minions to kill actual enemy minions.

 

I'm on my 7th game with this deck, same results. Can't get anything on the board long enough to do anything. Oh and this deck has no board clearing power either.

 

This deck has no board clearing power because there are literally no Basic Shaman cards that allow you to deal damage to more than one target. Likewise, no Basic neutral minions allow you to clear the board either.

 

I'd also like to note that since the patch, competition appears to be much more fierce in constructed mode than before. Prior to the patch, you could do very well at whatever your MMR was with an all-basic deck, but post-patch it seems much more difficult to do so.

 

In any case, we are not recommending this (or any other basic deck) as being "the best" or even "a very good" deck. All we are saying is that if you are building only out of basic cards (because you haven't been playing for long and/or haven't invested any real money into the game), then these basic decks are probably the best you can play with.

This deck is crap. Tried this one and the warlock deck as well. They can barely even touch the opponent. They even get stomped in the Normal AI practice mode. Maybe these guys should go back to what they know best, WoW. Because they definitely don't know Hearthstone.

Thank you very much for your post. It has allowed me to pin-point the issues people are having much better. Let me explain.

 

Your complaint is that this deck is so bad that it "gets stomped" by the Normal AI. That, I grant you, sounds pretty bad. So I went and played some matches with it against the AI. Here are my results.

 

Normal AI:

 

Mage - win

Hunter - win

Warrior - win

Druid - win

 

Expert AI:

 

Mage - win

Shaman - win

Priest - win

Rogue - win

 

So, not only did I not get stomped, but the AI was never a threat at all, even in Expert mode (with the exception of the Shaman, who had a strong start that left me at 14 HP before I recovered and won). In fact, I found the AI to be pretty bad indeed, with the Mage habitually using Fireblast on targets that they then Polymorph, for instance.

 

Now, given that you and I are both playing the exact same deck, against the exact same AI, with completely different results, it is obvious the the problem lies elsewhere. You could make an argument that you had the unluckiest possible draws, and I had the luckiest possible draws, but I think the far more reasonable conclusion is that you're just not very good at the game. And in order to get stomped by the Normal AI with this deck, I think you must be truly inexperienced (or making very poor decisions). And there's nothing wrong with that - don't think that I'm being condescending. We're all here to try to learn, teach, and get better together.

 

It is, perhaps, not ideal that we decided to publish basic deck lists before we published the actual guides that teach people how to improve their gameplay, but since writing guides of that sort is far more time consuming than putting the decks together, we felt that it was better to start with the decks to give people at least some guidance even now.

 

So, yet again, I admit that these decks are not especially strong. They lack many tools that a deck without a basic-only constraint would have. In the case of Shamans, I think that their Basic cards are especially poor, lacking practically any spells worth using. But this doesn't change the fact that the deck we provide here is, I firmly believe, among the best (if not the single best) Shaman deck you can construct using only Basic cards. If you feel this deck is weak, then you should raise the issue with Blizzard, and not with us.

 

Finally, I would like to ask you, and anyone else posting negative feedback about the decks to go ahead and suggest what changes would actually make the decks better. Without such suggestions, there really is not much we can do to improve the decks.

 

Thank you.

 

P.S.: Your claim that "we don't know Hearthstone" is false. First of all, while we certainly don't claim to be top players, we (Damien and I) are both pretty good. We've both achieved 9 wins in Arena on a regular basis (pre-patch), as well as reaching 3-star Master rank in constructed (again, pre-patch, not that that really means very much).

 

Second of all, you should know that our Hearthstone content is created with the very involved participation and assistance of a player who we do believe is a top player. According to this post from Blizzard, they were ranked 9th in all of Europe a few days ago.

Settle this argument by logging your games with Hearthlog and posting the link here.

 

http://www.hearthlog.com/

 

If you think the deck is crap, play a game with it and post the game log.  Then, if others think you didn't play it right, they can show you exactly where you made the wrong play.

 

 

I'm not affiliated with Hearthlog, I just think it's a great tool for settling these kind of silly discussions.

this deck is actually quite nice smile.png

could you tip what expert cards could make it better?

was thinking about master swordsmith, maybe injured blademaster (maybe its cleric only card)

priestess of elune could give a minor heal, and pint sized summoner might also work.

sadly im still a noob so no legenderys in my inventory...

stormforged axe is also an option since i see it everywhere in pro decks, but no real idea what overload rly does

Overload locks some of your mana out on the next turn. Example: If I have 10 mana crystals and I play a card with Overload (2), the next turn I cannot spend 2 mana crystals; I have only 8 mana to spend.

 

Does that make sense?

I think the best cards to start crafting for a Shaman deck are Stormforged Axe, Forked Lightning, and Lightning Bolt. Then, possibly, Unbound Elementals and one Mana Tide Totem, as well as Earth Elementals and Doomhammer (these last two are very good, but they're epic so they'll cost a lot of dust to craft).

 

From the neutral cards, I wouldn't craft any of the ones you said. I'd look into cards like Spellbreaker and Defender of Argus. In the future, we'll be providing a lot more information on this topic.

 

Thank you, and good luck!

Excuse me for using caps lock in this reply.

 

THIS IS A BASIC-ONLY DECK. FORKED LIGHTNING AND LIGHTNING STORM (may want to get the names of the spells right when you're telling someone they don't know what they're talking about) ARE NOT BASIC CARDS.

This is an amazing deck. I had trouble at first, but after getting an idea of it's strong points I started winning a lot more. And the way I win with this deck is usually pretty fun - earlier today I took down a hero from 30 to 0 hp in a single turn with a couple of minions, bloodlust, windfury and I forgot if there was flametongue or rockbiter totem. Anyway, pretty much every game is won like this - just survive and maintain board control until you can dish out bloodlust and windfury and smack him in the face.

 

Also ... totems! I noticed that most players just ignore the totems (except for the snake) in Play mode (not so much in Ranked mode) and it usually gets back to them horribly :)

 

So after playing around with this deck for a few days I got some questions. I have unlocked several expert cards and I'm pretty sure that I have to include them in my deck, but I'm not sure what to remove. Everything is really useful in that deck. So I have:

 

- Earth Shock

- Forked Lightning

- Lightning Bolt

- Dust Devil

- Stormforged Axe

 

I tried putting 2x of each of these in my deck, but it was terrible.

 

Also from the Neutral cards, I was thinking about dropping the 2x Swamp Ooze for Abusive Sergeant and Ironbreak Owl.

 

All in all - which are the weak points in this Basic-only deck and how it can be upgraded?

 

* And may the odds be ever in your favour! *

* And may the odds be ever in your favour! *

 

Regarding the Shaman Expert cards: you should make it a point to fit the Stormforged Axes, Lightning Bolt, and Forked Lightning in (in that order). Earth Shock is pretty nice (makes quick work of minions like the Twilight Drake). Dust Devil is just bad, don't ever take it.

 

Now, as to what to drop from this deck to make room for your cards, I'd say the Wolfriders should be the first to go. They're definitely the weak point of the deck, and they're there mostly as filler since you don't have too many basic options.

 

So, Lighting Bolt (x2) in for Wolfrider (x2) - LB is basically a superior Wolfrider in almost any situation (bypasses taunt, can be buffed by spellpower, is cheaper), if you consider that the Wolfrider hardly ever survives more than one turn.

 

The other weak part of the deck are the Windfuries. Windfury as an effect is of questionable value to begin with, but it's better to apply it through the means of the Windspeakers, since it also leaves behind a minion with a pretty good body (and 4 Windfuries in the deck are total overkill). Stormforged Axes in for Windfuries.

 

You'll notice that with the Stormforged Axes, you've got an excessive amount of 2-drops. So, you can get rid of a Flametongue Totem and the River Crocolisk, and put in the Forked Lightnings. Flametongue Totem is the sort of card that really only helps you when you're already ahead, or as a finisher. As a finisher, one is enough. Forked Lightning, on the other hand, is the type of card that helps you're behind, which is far more valuable.

 

Also, you can safely drop a Bloodlust to make room for one Earth Shock.

 

As for the Sergeant and Owl in for Oozes, I agree generally, though you should probably keep one Ooze.

 

So, you would have a deck that might look like this.

 

Hope that helped, and let me know if you have any other questions!

No offense, but I really don't understand why you bother posting such comments. It's been stated over and over again in this thread, if you have a complaint to make about the deck, please be specific about it and come up with a way in which the deck can be improved within the basic-only limitation. Otherwise, your comments are completely meaningless, especially since it could well be the case that, like the other person who posted about losing to the AI, you are just playing the deck wrong.

I've won tons of games with this deck, look for the problem elsewhere.

 

@Vlad - I'm just not sure about dropping one Bloodlust, it's a key card for this deck, don't you think?

With the number of Windfury effects I'd definitely recommend having one.  Bloodlust has won me numerous games on my own Shaman deck.  If all you have on the board is a handful of totems and they drop something big, Bloodlust could be your most efficient way to remove the threat.  With 3+ creatures the efficiency of Bloodlust really starts to rise.

One Bloodlust is definitely needed in this deck, but two is probably going to prove unnecessary most of the time.

I kinda like this deck however it seems to me that once you've lost a board control (e.g. due to unlucky starting hand and high-mana cards in the first few deals which happends to me a lot for some reason) you have hard time getting back in the game.

 

I suspect that this is mostly becuase so far I had no cards that would allow me to clean-up the entire borad such as Lighting storm or maybe I am playing the deck wrong.

 

Any suggestions?

Well this happens to most decks, I think. An unlucky draw is an unlucky draw, and you can't just remove all big cards, since you'd run out of steam late-game.

      Anton "Dvck" Lund found his way out of a jam on the ladder. Can you?
      Dvck and Aleco discuss the importance of planning ahead, understanding the meta, and knowing when to pivot your role in a matchup.
      The player interviews I've done with RayC and TerrenceM have been some of the most fun and informative episodes of "What's the Move?", so I was very excited when Anton "Dvck" Lund reached out to me via reddit with a play from a recent game of his. Playing as Combo Dragon Priest, Dvck was able to find his way out of a tough spot against Murloc Paladin. Can you do the same?
      In this week's episode, Dvck and I discuss the importance of planning ahead, understanding the meta, and knowing when to pivot your role in a matchup. For what ended up being a relatively short episode by "WTM" standards, I was pleasantly surprised by how much we were able to break down together so quickly. The interview with Dvck was as fun as it was informative, so I hope to have him back on the show soon! If you're interested in watching some high-legend gameplay, be sure to tune into Dvck's stream on twitch.tv.
      You can look forward to a few more episodes about the Hearthstone World Championships in the coming weeks, but I always welcome submissions and suggestions for future episodes. Did you have a favorite play from the world championships? Feel free to link me the VOD here on Icy Veins or send me a message on twitter @Aleco_P.
      Thanks for watching!

      Kolento and ShtanUdachi found themselves in nearly identical situations at the world championships - but did they make the same decisions?
      Episode 14 of "What's the Move?" discusses the importance of being mana efficient in the early game, as well as the relationship between speed and value.

      The Hearthstone World Championships were full of incredible plays, sticky situations, and valuable lessons to be learned from the best players on the planet. There were far too many great plays to analyze in a single video, so for the next few episodes of "What's the Move?" I'll be breaking down all of my favorite plays from the World Championship weekend.
      To kick things off we have a pair of Tempo Rogue vs. Highlander Priest matchups featuring Kolento and ShtanUdachi. Both players drew nearly identical opening hands, but did they did make same decisions?
      If you managed to spot a particularly tricky or interesting play from the recent World Championships, please feel free to link it in the comment section below! I'd love to break down as many viewer-submitted topics as I can in the coming weeks and months, and I have little doubt that I may have missed some of the most fascinating plays from the tournament during my initial viewing.
      Wishing you all the best of luck in the post-nerf meta!

      Welcome to the post-Corridor Creeper meta.
      Hearthstone Update 10.2 is now live worldwide and it's a big one!
      The first change it brings are the nerfs to four cards that have terrorised dominated the meta up until now. Bonemare now costs 8 mana, Patches the Pirate no longer has Charge, Raza the Chained makes the Hero Power cost (1) instead of (0) and Corridor Creeper has been butchered down to 2 attack. You can read Aleco's interesting opinion piece on Blizzard's nerf policy here.
      The second big addition of this patch is the Ranked Play update, which will take effect on March 2018. Players will now drop only 4 ranks with each monthly reset, all ranks will have 5 stars and you will only need to win 5 Ranked games to earn the monthly card back.
      The Year of the Mammoth Bundle is also finally available on the Shop. For $19.99 or 19.99 EUR, you can get 30 packs - 10 for each of the Year of the Mammoth expansions (Un'Goro, KFT, K&C). Don't forget that the Quest for Packs event is still ongoing and an addition has been made to the grand prize winner reward: $1.200 (read here for more info)!
      Lastly, the patch introduces the Wildfest event. From February 19 to March 11, Hearthstone is going Wild! Initially, you will be able to draft cards in Arena mode that are exclusive to Wild. Second, even though Tavern Brawl is usually on Wild format, there will be two special Wild Brawls. The first one is called "Venture Into the Wild" and it will just contain premade Wild decks for each class. The second one, "The Wild Brawlisseum", is basically a Wild Heroic Tavern Brawl, but with a major improvement: the first run will be free for everyone. You can read more about Wildfest here.
      Below you can read the patch notes, which describe all the updates as well as various bug fixes. A massive change is that the timer for the first two turns will now be shorter!
      Daxxarri
      The tavern is buzzing with all the stuff that’s packed into this Hearthstone update! There’s a Ranked Play update, a Wild party, card changes, and a chance to save on packs with a new Mammoth Card Bundle! We managed to squeeze in some card backs and bug fixes too!

Players at Legend reset to rank 4, 0 stars. All ranks will have 5 stars. Starting in March, you will no longer earn the monthly card back by reaching Rank 20. Instead, you can earn each season’s card back by winning 5 games in Ranked Standard or Wild at any rank. Card Changes – Please read the Upcoming Balance Changes blog on the official Hearthstone site for full details regarding the reasons and philosophy behind these changes. Corridor Creeper – Now has 2 attack, down from 5.

Three losses and your run comes to an end. Your first Brawliseum run is free! Additional runs are available for the same price as Arena tickets. Also like the Arena, prizes are based on number of wins, and follow the Arena reward structure.
      Year of the Mammoth Bundle For a limited time, purchase 10 packs each of Journey to Un’goro, Knights of the Frozen Throne, and Kobolds & Catacombs—a total of 30 packs!—for a special price.

      Year of the Mammoth – Acquired from winning five games in Ranked Play, March 2018.
      Bug Fixes & Updates Gameplay
      The turn timer for the first two turns of a match are now shorter, though they should still be significantly longer than most players take on those turns.

Nemsy Necrofizzle’s Hero frame is now golden if you have unlocked the golden Warlock Hero. Removed rarity gems from several summoned minions. Playing multiple copies of Temporus in a row will now queue up sequences of two turns for your opponent and two turns for you. Fixed a bug where the Divine Shield provided by Elixir of Purity could not be silenced. Spectators now see green highlights on playable cards for both players. Fixed an issue that could cause Hearthstone to freeze when a spectated player disconnects and their opponent concedes. Tooltips for Hero Cards now appear correctly when spectating. Resolved a crash that could occur when drawing a Darkness Candle spell after The Darkness is no longer dormant. Grand Archivist can now correctly cast the Darkness Candle spell if it is present in a player’s deck. Resolved a crash that could occur when certain cost reducing cards were played. Resolved an unintended interaction that could occur with Anomalus, Taunt minions, and Commanding Shout. Added missing Collection Manager tooltips to several cards. Resolved an issue that could cause a player to become stuck when reconnecting before the first turn. Resolved an issue that would prevent the progress notification for more than one Daily Quest from being shown after a match is complete. Ice Breaker now correctly destroys Rotface without activating his effect if he is Frozen. Resolved interface issues that could arise when retiring an Arena game. Resolved an issue that would allow the Friends menu to remain active while a Friendly Challenge is active. Fixed various minor visual and text issues. Dungeon Run & Adventures
      The cards that appear in several loot categories have been adjusted slightly. Cards stolen by Gloves of Mugging now appear in history tile when played by an opponent. Resolved a visual issue with Candlebeard’s charge enchantment banner. [Adventures] Atramedes now correctly uses his Hero Power whenever he should. Mobile
      Resolved an issue with the Collection Manager that could allow the set filter to be interacted with behind the “Done” button. Scrolling through an Arena deck on a mobile device will no longer generate unnecessary prompts. The “Back” button will now function correctly after an Arena run is complete. History tiles that were queueing up while viewing a history event now populate correctly. Resolved an issue that could cause crafted cards to remain visible over the Collection Manager. Corrected a visual issue with the search bar in the Collection Manager. [Android] Resolved an issue with the download progress indicator. [iOS] Compatibility now requires iOS 8.0 or later. [iOS] The client will no longer sometimes freeze when a spectated player wins a match.   (source)

      According to the Principal Game Designer, Cubelock isn't as powerful as it seems.
      Cubelock won't be touched in the upcoming balance changes which, for many people, is a sign that the deck will completely dominate the meta after said changes become active.
      The deck is already prominent enough that people have started making false claims about it. A Reddit user claimed that he faced 17 Cubelocks in a row! However, Mike Donais put the matter into place by saying that there was no such streak in Blizzard's internal data and that Cubelock is currently the 12th best deck.
      He subsequently explained that he expects the deck to rise after the nerfs, but he's not too worried because it's a challenging (and expensive, I would add) deck to master. If the team feels that Cubelock is too powerful, though, they will evaluate it.
      mdonais
      I just checked the data, and no one played 17 cubelocks in a row today.
      If you are indeed having trouble with Cubelock there are several decks that beat it consistently right now. It is currently the 12th best deck.
      I did enjoy the title of your post though. (source)
       
       
      A couple people asked why the stats I mentioned don't metch VS power ranking so I looked up VS 79 and across all rankings Control Warlock is the 10th best deck. I assume they mix control and cube warlock in their stats. We have decks broken out a bit more but 10th gives you the general idea.
      Obviously after the nurfs it will be stronger since none of the cards in cubelock are being nurfed and that concerns me but it is a pretty challenging deck with a lot of opportunities to show off player skill. People will eventually get better at playing it, but people will also put in more weapon destruction or silence cards if it gets more popular.
      I am excited to see what people figure out after the patch. If Warlock is a big problem after people have some time to adjust and tune the new decks then we will look into it. I have said many times before that win rate is not the most important factor in our nurf decisions. How people feel matters more, so we will listen to players and make decisions based on that, just like we did in the past with Quest Rogue and Patron Warrior. (source)
