Strategy
This deck offers an aggressive option for gaining and maintaining board control. This aids us in making it to the later parts of the game where many of the cards excel and the deck is overall strongest.

 

Through the early game if you against an aggressive deck, you will be looking to trade your minions for their minions.
If they achieve minions you can’t deal with, you can use some removal spells such as Lighting storm, Rockbiter weapon or defend yourself with Feral spirts and Hex however make sure to play your turn careful because of the overload effects of these cards.

 

In the mid and late game often trades minions is the correct choice or using taunt cards to allow you minions to attack safely. Remember this deck can have a lot of burst combos with the use of cards such as FlameTongue totems, Doomhammer combed with Rockbiter weapons so keep count close of your damage and decide whether to trade or go face.
 
Use of cards
 

Earth shock
Is a great card for dealing with cards such as Twilight Drake, Scarlet crusader as well as removing the effects of cards such as Cairne bloodholf and Sylvanus windrunner. Another target we can use the Earth shock for is getting though taunts such as Sludge belcher so that we can burst are opposition down or just maintain board control as Sludge belcher can be a pest to deal with.
 

Fire Elemental
Is a very strong card as it can trade well with many other cards and it does a heap of damage to face in addition it’s effect can be used as a removal or as added burst damage, when using the effect of Fire Elemental it is often better to use it for removal so we can gain board control.
 

Lighting storm
Is great board clear for the cost especially vs decks such as hunter and zoo as often their minions have around 2-3 health. Remember when using Lighting storm, unless you have a better play, to use your hero power or play your drake if you can, as you can get additional spell power for Lighting storm.
 

Mana tide totem
The great thing about this card is it will never cause card disadvantage as it draws a card at the end of your turn. However you want to try and protect this card for as long as you can to be able to get more draws from it you can do this by using cards such as Defender of Argus and Sludge belchers.
 

Rockbiter weapon
like the effect of the Fire Elemental this card is versatile, you can use it for removal, bursting you opponents by adding it to Doomhammer and it is also great for popping the Nerubain eggs.
 

FlameTongue totems
Much like the Rockbiter weapon you can use the FlameTongue totems for trading, it combos very well with the spiderlings from the Haunted Creeper, pooping the eggs, and finishing the enemy off with the extra damage.
 

Defender of Argus
This card is great! Allowing you to taunt up you eggs, or putting up meat shields for the Mana tide totem also again it can be useful for trading, bursting and removal.
 

Gnomish inventor
First time I saw this card in a shaman vs shaman game I thought I was playing against someone doing an f2p run.
Now I realise this card is very useful especially vs aggressive decks. Not only does it allow you to draw a card which when playing against aggressive decks is very useful because it often allows you to draw into some of your removal. But it also, by having 4 health, trades great against 3/2s which decks such as zoo have many of.
 

DOOMHAMMER
Yes it needs all caps.
This card can be used as removal, great vs cards with 2 health, or burst you opponent down which is best done by combing this card with Rockbiter weapons as DOOMHAMMER has wind fury it will allow you to do 10 damage spilt into 2 attacks on the turn Rockbiter weapons was played.
 

Sludge belcher
In my opinion this is by far is the strongest card currently in the game and there are very few decks I don’t include this card in.
It trades well with many aggressive early game cards such as flame imps and other 3/2 allowing it to often trade with more than one card and even if the your enemy has a card that can take it out in one shot they still have to deal with the 1/2 meaning that without the use of silences or spells your enemy with have to use at least 2 attacks on the Sludge belcher which will often save from taking a lot of damage to

the face.

 

Sludge belcher is also great for protecting your minions like your Mana tide totem or your FlameTongue totems allowing this cards to use their effects while safe from the enemy minions.
 

Undertaker
this card is great for allowing you to get early board control if you drew deathrattles with it, as It can trade into minions if it gets buffed enough for example if this card is buffed twice it can trade nicely into any 3/2s on the board and still survive.
As well as this it can pressure your opposition by dealing damage to the face. Often this card will force your opposition to use removing which is great since this card is only 1 Mana.

Haunted Creeper
This is a another card I greatly underrated but it trades very well with 2/1s such as leper gnomes and 1/1s it also can trade well with also once you pop the Haunted Creeper the 2 spiderlings can trade into 3/2s allowing you to sometimes get a 2 for 1.
 

Cards to mulligan for:
The main cards you want to search for are Undertakers, Haunted Creepers and Nerubain eggs I also like to keep Rockbiter weapon and depending on the starting hand will keep Harvest golems.

 

When against aggressive decks I will look for lighting storms and will sometimes keep Feral spirts depending on my hand, the reason I sometimes would consider not keep Feral spirts is it can often make your turn 3/4 just too weak however it is situation dependent, and usually I would not consider it a mistake to keep them 
Finally when playing against a warlock keeping an earth shock is often a good idea as it is very good when against handlock.
Well I think that’s all thank you very much for sticking with me I how this is useful to you and I look forward to feedback.

A creditable post, but not relevant to World of Warcraft. Moving this to a more appropriate section of the forum...

      1. Clemency
      4. High Inquisitor
      7. Zealous Spirit
      10. either one depending on comp
      13. Harsh Discipline
      16. Radiance
      20. if you went with sc at 10, the 20 sc choice is a must-pick. if you went with Divine Reckoning, Purge the Wicked or the 20 ult buff are the two options depending on need. if you need single target burst, go purge. if you want more aoe burst healing, then judgement will hit harder and heal harder. 
      This build revolves around abusing clemency/inquisition's short cooldown to quickly grant zeal to everyone and convert the lost mana back to you with either usage of the spell. 
      The idea behind the build is to build up to three desperation stacks before a fight by spamming your q on each teammate to stack zeal. the last cast if everyone is around will be using clemency to zeal the last hero and reset your stacks which also refunds 225 mana. you can stack zeal on all 5 of your teammates in <2 seconds with no drawbacks. you're essentially playing whitemane the same way you would malfurion. but your zeal works as your "regrowth" so to speak. 
      You take radiance at 16 so you can burst heal your team on command. you should have zeal on AT LEAST the 3 people most likely to take damage. before doing your dps combo (if you took Divine Reckoning) of R-E-W or E-R-W, stack zeal on your teammates, burst heal on the third stack application, then do the combo.
      if DR hits just one hero, the combo gives ~6-700 hps which increases (obviously) as more enemies are in your hurtbox. maiev is an unbelievably pairing for this combo as her ult helps keep the enemy within your reckoning for as long as possible.
      youre able to spam three more q's and your clemency/inquisition should be back up within a second or two. you basically rinse and repeat this without losing any mana whatsoever. shes able to keep up that burst spam combo indefinitely if you manage your stacks correctly. while also refreshing zeal on the person with the lowest timer. divine reckoning provides an absolutely insane amount of burst healing while also softening up anyone sitting in its effect.

      About: I've decided to make a guide on Leveling Heirlooms since I did not find any quick guides for it. This is my first guide, so please feel free to give some constructive feedback   What are Heirlooms: Heirlooms are items which stats scale with your character's level, reducing the need to replace gear whose stats are becoming too low for your level.  
      Heirloom Collections Tab: A new Heirloom system has been introduced in 6.1, adding all your heirlooms to your Collections, where they can be easily accessed without having to mail the heirlooms to other characters. Already earned heirlooms will be added to the collection once you have logged in with the character that has the heirlooms in their bank/bag. Any newly purchased heirlooms will automatically be added to your collection. To use a heirloom, simply find and click on it in the Heirlooms tab, and it will be placed in your inventory, and then equip it. You can also recreate the same heirloom if you want to dual-wield it, or have two trinkets or rings of the same type.
        Categories: Heirlooms can be divided into the following 4 categories, based on what stats they give:    Strength-Haste - Gear for Melee damage dealers that requires more haste than crit. These pieces were the tanking pieces, but the Parry/Dodge stats were changed in 6.0  
      Strength-Crit  - Gear for Melee damage dealers that requires more crit than haste.
      Agility - Gear for Melee+Ranged damage dealers
      Intellect - Gear for Spell-caster Damage Dealers and Healers
      There are also subcategories for armor types, like Cloth, Leather, Mail and Plate.
      There are also subcategories for slots, like Chest, Shoulder, Leggings, Weapons etc
      How to buy Leveling Heirlooms:   Heirlooms can be brought with the following currencies: Gold (g) Burning Blossoms (Midsummer Fire Festival)
      Tricky Treat (Hallow's End)
      Coin of Ancestry (Lunar Festival)
      Mark of Honor (PvP)
      Timewarped Badge (Timewalking)
        Darkmoon Prize Ticket (DPT) Champion's Seals (CS)   From these vendors: Alliance: Krom Stoutarm Horde: Estelle Gendry Guild Vendors: (A) Shay Pressler / (H) Goram

      So uhm, first post here and i take the opportunity to take you guys through my fabulous journey into "breaking" the tavern brawl this morning.
       
      So i get on that six-shooter tavern brawl with a mage decklist ( just cause i need them gold from quest ya know :D ) and on my second or third game,
       
      I play Research Project my opponent had then 10 cards in hand and draws for the turn, but no deck refill.... He then plays Barnes, no minion comes up from the battlecry. so it aint a visual bug. start my turn, play another Research Project, my opponent fatigues for 1+2, i can then OTK him with my 0 costs spells due to my 4 copies of Sorcerer's Apprentice.
      Fun fact, the tavern brawl clearly says; Make a six-card deck and duel! Don't worry - when you're out of cards you get a free reload!.
      Can anyone recall to this happening to them or no one had the cojones to mill?
