What is a good substitute for Ragnaros?? 

 

If you could name a couple of good options that'd be great, he's the only piece of the puzzle that im missing

There is no substitute for Raggy!!!!!11111

But on a serious note, it depends why you have Ragnaros in the deck. Generally its because its a huge threat, can be great finisher and has immediate effect on the game once played. Potentially you could substitute it with Ysera in control decks, however in most cases, you would simply be better off playing an aggressive deck if your control deck lacks end game.

I was disappointed that the shaman aggro deck types wasn't listed, i can never seem to get very far with control version since im missing certain key control cards. 

 

So here's the current shaman deck im playing 

 

SHAMAN
 
2x Earth Shock
2x Lightning Bolt
2x Rockbiter Weapon
1x Windfury
1x Flametongue Totem
2x Hex
2x Lightning Storm
2x Mana Tide Totem
1x Bloodlust 
 
Neutral
2x Leper Gnome
2x Bluegill Warrior
2x Faerie Dragon
2x Novice Engineer
2x Arcane Golem
2x Wolfrider
1x Leeroy Jenkins
2x Argent Commander
 
It's an aggro deck, in current rankings im at 18 with it dangling between 18 and 17 after rank reset. I feel the deck holds together well for the most part and will pull more wins than defeats. It's main drawback is some times not pulling the 'finisher' when you really need it

I just crafted Ragnaros to test this deck. But now I'm missing the Faceless Manipulator and I don't have any arcane dust left :/ Do you have a suggestion, which card I could use instead of the Faceless Manipulator?

Could i replace that windfurry with Alexstrasza? I get nuked all the time, even when i have board control, i desperately need some heals!

Faceless Manipulator is generally a solid choice, however if you are still collecting dust, you can try any of the really strong neutral commons such as Chillwind Yeti, Sen'jin Shieldmasta or Harvest Golem.

You can easily take out Windfury. However if you are really after healing, you should consider getting Earth Ring Farseers in your deck instead, they will work better in your transition to late game.

Against hunters, your Earth Elemental will give you 3 Overload and die to a 1/1 + Hunter's mark.

This deck is horseshit, I played ~20 ranked matches with this and got so far behind in the early game I couldn't recover every single time.

This is something I am having a hard time understanding about Hearthstone in general but I see Ragnaros in pretty much every "mid-budget" deck. How is a legendary mid-budget? I've been playing the game since it's opened and I haven't seen enough dust to craft a single legendary.

At what rank?

I totally agree. It is good for nothing. Not enough synergy with this deck. It should be updated.

Shamans are generally a bit harder to play as you need to manage your overload cards and often think a turn ahead, however I have to admit that I am a bit confused - How exactly can you fall behind in early game against any deck when you run 2x Earth Shock, 2x Rockbiter Weapon, 2x Lightning Bolt, 2x Lightning Storm, 2x Feral spirit?

The only way you could potentially "improve" this deck against most aggressive decks is to include 2x Forked Lightning, however I assure you that this change will make the deck significantly worse against most mid-range or control decks.

I was worried about this deck. I also began using it without the Argent Commanders and Ragnaros to get an idea of how it would go. It was pretty bad. However, today I finally got the dust I needed. I completed the deck in it's entirety and have only lost once. I've won about 6 in a row before I came to post this.

      The Europe Spring Playoffs and Championship took place over the weekend of May 20-21, which decided not only the new Europe Champion, but also the four players who would represent Europe at the Global Spring Championship in Shanghai next month.
      After seven rounds of Swiss, the top eight players cut to a knockout phase. The results of which were as follows:
        Hoej beat   FibEli3
        Neirea beat   INER
        Rdu beat   Casie
        Kolento beat   StanCifka
      This means that Hoej, Neirea, Rdu, and Kolento will represent Europe in the Global Championship. The top eight being so strong is a sign that the metagame is in a healthy place. All of the players were already known to be among the best in Europe, and despite their lineups differing substantially, they were still able to make it through.
      Hoej went on to take the title, beating Kolento 3-0 in the final. Hoej has been touted as one of the best players in Europe for some time, but traditionally has brought Control decks to major events. This time around, he brought a very aggressive lineup, and was rewarded for his willingness to adapt his style to the meta.
      The deck archetypes that each player brought to the event are listed below:
      Hoej: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
      Kolento: Jade Druid, Midrange Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Neirea: Jade Druid, Discover Mage, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Rdu: Aggro Druid, Face Hunter, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      The next four players to qualify for the Global Championship will be decided next week, with the Americas Spring Championships.

      The Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) European Spring Playoffs will take place this weekend, 20-21 May 2017.
      This will be the first playoff event since Journey to Un'Goro was released, and so if anyone has saved any surprise deck tech, this is the event where it will be revealed.
      The top 64 point earners, and ties, from the EU server will be joined by 8 Tavern Hero tournament qualifiers for the event, which will be played in esports bars across Europe. If you want to attend one of the events to cheer on your local favourite, the list of locations can be found here. There will be side events for anyone wishing to attend, with Blizzard prizes available for winners, and the Power Core cardback for all attendees.
      The point standings, showing the top 64, can be found here. As usual the event is stacked with many of the big names from the region. The top four will advance to the HCT Spring Global finals next month.
