You mention the wolfrider but it's not being used as part of the deck.

Awesome deck, been winning consistently with this. The combination of windfury and bonus damage is deadly in the least. Just be patience and don't let your enemy get a minion advantage.

I can't win anything with this deck.  My minions are killed before I can get anything going and I'm running out of cards constantly.  There has to be a better basic deck than this.

If you read the feedbacks above you, you can see that this deck, if played correctly can win quite a lot of matches. In fact, the metagame is constantly changing. I have heard that aggro decks are the most usual in the last few days which explains completely why your minions die even if you play it correctly.

I really didn't like the Shaman class at first, especially just using this deck. However with a bit of tweaking I found myself winning a lot more. For instance taking out Windfury and replacing it with Windspeaker.  For 2 more mana you get a 3/3 minion as well. Your unlikely to want to give a basic minion Windfury so I found this much better mid game. I also like the Gnomish Inventor for more card advantage. What most people don't see coming is Bloodlust. If you have 4 minions out that's an extra 12 damage which is pretty deadly. Also make use of your totem special ability. Some people will just ignore them. However if you need to take out a 3 or 4 health minion you can surprise them by giving a totem Rockbiter Weapon.

They're classes are pretty good, I've been winning with them but basic classes tend to be similar due to lack of choices. An addition I would really like to see would be a list of suggested switched cards if you have some card pack-cards but not enough to create the low budget version of a class. Its been annoying me that I've bought card packs but I don't have the required ones for a low-budget version.

Hi, thanks for these guides, great starting place for us new players. If you ever revisit them it would be nice with a section on what areas/cards one should first start looking into upgrading and some potential candidates.

Basic decks are rather limited with card choices and our decks are constructed to get you started within these limitations. Once you move past the basic level, you should easily find a variety of decks available for either your class or budget range.

Should you struggle finding the best candidates to craft, I suggest you decide about the class you wish to play and simply check the deck lists for all budget ranges - some cards will be included in every deck despite its budget.

I could afford to craft a few other cards for this deck, including some neutral minions, would any be able to suggest any replacements to help improve this deck?

If you look at Shaman decks http://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone-shaman-decks they give ones that are steps up from this basic one. Depending on your range I'm still on the basics as I'm trying to reach level 10 with each one still. But once you know what class you want to work with you can pick one of those and work towards the end goal of the really high tier version.

This deck sucks big time, you won't get far with these low cards. No mass removal, too few cards with abilities.

This deck heavily relies on drawing cards in right sequence - might as well go for zoolock deck.

 

I know what I'm saying because I play shaman with rares and legendaries.

I agree with most of the things you've said. However, you seem to be under the impression that we are in some way recommending this deck over decks that have Rares and Legendaries in them. We are not.

 

This is a Basic deck, meaning that it is meant for people who have absolutely no other cards aside from the Basic ones (the ones the game gives you by default for reaching level 10 with a Shaman). The deck is meant to give these players the best chance they can have given their limited card options. Whenever one acquires better cards, these cards should be incorporated into the deck.

I'm certain that all the Basic decks have potential, I personally find the Warlock and Shaman versions extremely hard to play.

It might just be my playstyle, as I find I do quite well with Priest, Paladin, Warrior and Mage, but I too have found in an aggro-heavy meta, the Basic Shaman deck can have an extremely hard time keeping minions on the board.

 

I think it might be handy to have decks listed somewhere between the Basic Decks and the Low Budget versions, as 1000+ dust can be quite a lot for new players who are struggling.

As a beginner I agree with this, so do you guys have any suggestion on some cards that I can replace/add? The only change I did was replace 1 bloodlust with lightning storm and I only have 200 Arcane dust(I always lose in the Arenasad.png )

You can usually look at the higher budget decks and get some card ideas from there (and from the crafting guides we have for each class).

      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.
