Rdu's Evolve Shaman Deck

Last updated on Jul 12, 2017 at 08:37 by L0rinda 14 comments

Table of Contents

Rdu and Hoej changed just one card from our featured deck for Evolve Shaman for the HCT championship in China, but it can have a big impact on how the deck plays out. Removing one Stonehill Defender for Barnes gives the potential for Evolve to be more useful in the games where Doppelgangster is not drawn.

1. Card List

This deck costs 5,060 Arcane Dust and it is made up of the following cards.

3. Pros and Cons

This variant of the deck uses Barnes for multiple reasons. It has great synergy with the rest of the deck, with nearly every minion that it can fetch having some use. The minion that is copied also retains its casting cost, which means that Barnes functions as a mini Doppelgangster. Finally, playing two minions with only one card works well within the theme of making as many wide boards as possible.

All of the above advantages of Barnes are useful against Control decks, which are the weak spot for this archetype. However, the removal of a Stonehill Defender does mean that the deck is potentially missing not only the Taunt provided by the Defender, but also the Taunt that you would find from its Battlecry. This means that this build is a little weaker than usual against Aggro lineups.

4. Quick Mulligan

In general, you should keep the following cards in Mulligan:
