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?

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.

 

Do you consider to add earth elemental against to  very common face mindless hunters?

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.

      Adjustments to the weight of Rogue class cards have been made. Also, last week, the current rules for Arena were posted after the release of Rise of Shadows.
      It looks like Rogue may have been a tad too powerful in Arena, after the release of Rise of Shadows. Team 5 is adjusting the weight of Rogue class cards, with overperforming ones being seen less frequently.
      Dylan Bates
      Later today we will be applying an adjustment to the weight of Rogue class cards in Arenas to address some current balance issues. This means that overperforming Rogue cards will be seen less frequently. Additionally, we will be making changes to the card buckets for other classes to create a more consistent drafting experience. You will not need to patch your client or download any additional data to receive this update.
      Please note that after this change some Rogue choices may seem sub-optimal, but we are prepared to address any outstanding issues in a future update. (source)
      Rise of Shadows brought a significant change to the Arena, as it now has a rotating draft pool. Accordingly, Blizzard has posted an update to the current Arena rules:
      Dylan Bates
      Update 14.0 - 04/09/19
      Any given Arena draft pick will offer 3 cards from the same "Bucket". There are currently 13 non-Legendary card buckets and 5 Legendary card buckets.
      On average, Arena draft picks consist of about 79% Common, 15% Rare, 5% Epic, and 1% Legendary cards.
      Your 1st, 10th, 20th, and 30th picks will be guaranteed to offer cards from Bucket 4 or higher.
      Class cards receive an additional +50% increase in their appearance rate.
      Spell and weapon cards OR cards from the latest Expansion receive an additional +50% increase in their appearance rate.
      Neutral cards from the Classic and Basic set appear 50% less often.
      These appearance rate modifiers are multiplicative.
      The following cards are unavailable to be drafted in Arena:
      Ancient Watcher, Mind Control Tech, Klaxxi Amber-Weaver, Dark Arakkoa, Cult Sorcerer, Twilight Darkmender, Hooded Acolyte, Blade of C’Thun, Usher of Souls, Ancient Shieldbearer, Twin Emperor Vek’lor, Disciple of C’Thun, Doomcaller, C’Thun, Beckoner of Evil, C’Thun’s Chosen, Twilight Geomancer, Twilight Elder, Crazed Worshipper, Skeram Cultist, Jungle Giants, Open the Waygate, The Caverns Below, Vicious Fledgling, The Marsh Queen, Fire Plume’s Heart, Awaken the Makers, Unite the Murlocs, Lakkari Sacrifice, The Last Kaleidosaur, Humongous Razorleaf, Bloodreaver Gul’dan, Deathstalker Rexxar, Frost Lich Jaina, Malfurion the Pestilent, Scourgelord Garrosh, Shadowreaper Anduin, Thrall, Deathseer, Uther of the Ebon Blade, Valeera the Hollow, Baku the Mooneater, Black Cat, Genn Greymane, Glitter Moth, Gloom Stag, Hagatha the Witch, Murkspark Eel, Dr. Boom, Mad Genius, Whizbang the Wonderful, Zul’jin, Arcane Watcher
