[Legend #6] - Jade Elemental Shaman Guide
"The Elements will destroy you"

 

 

Zananananan here (https://twitter.com/Zananananhttps://www.twitch.tv/zanananan). I just wanted to share this Jade Elemental Shaman with you. The Caverns Below got nerfed a few hours ago and Jade Spirit turned into an Elemental. I built this deck and hit Legend #6 with it. This list is obviously not refined yet, I'll keep updating it. 

I'm Florian 'Zananananan' Marschner, 18 years old and a German Hearthstone player for PENTA Sports. I've been playing Hearthstone for almost 2 years now, I started tryharding competitively in 2017.

I offer coachings for 20,00 €/hour. If you are interested, please leave me a message on Skype ([email protected]) or Hearthpwn. (2nd hour 15 €, 3rd hour 10 €)

1. Proof

 

 

2. General Strategy

 

Your want to get on board early. In the mid- to late game, you want try and find Bloodlust so that you can kill your opponent.

Double Mana Tide Totem tries to ensure a steady stream of minions. Flametongue Totem is another card that benefits very much from making a big board, since you can usually trade in your minions that are not so useful and get value. Stonehill Defender helps in slower Matchups, 

 

3. Placement

 

Placement is key, it can win or lose you the game. You always want to maximize the efficiency of Flametongue Totem.

  • You usually want big minions, minions with deathrattle or taunt on the side and small minions in the middle.

 

4. General Mulligan

 

If you don't have the coin and you don't have a 1 drop throw everything away, it's in most matchups key to have a turn 1 play

It's a good board clear

Allows value trades and forces your opponent to have an answer

You win if they can't deal with it

 

5. Class Specific Mulligan + Tips

 

Aggro Druid

favored -  You want your 1 drops, Jade ClawsMaelstrom Portal and Devolve. You can play 2x Devolve if you want to improve this matchup.

Always clear their stuff to play around Mark of the LotusPower of the Wild and Mark of Y'Shaarj.

Jade Druid

favored - Mana Tide Totem is insane. Flametongue Totem is good as well. 

It's pretty straight forward, a lot has to go wrong for you to lose. Cards to play around are Swipe and Primordial Drake. It's expensive for them to Wrath or Feral Rage a Mana Tide Totem. You both used a card and you drew one.

Miracle Rogue

slightly favored - I like keeping Devolve if they have The Coin.

Deals with Edwin VanCleef and Questing Adventurer. They don't have a good board clear except Bloodmage Thalnos + Fan of Knives.

Günther Mage

unfavored - Keep Mana Tide Totem

You should keep Volcanic PotionFlamestrikeFrostbolt and Medivh's Valet in mind. Sometimes you can't even play around it. Save Kalimos, Primal Lord for heal, they'll try to burn you at some point.  

Secret Mage

slightly favored -  Early game is very important. 

They don't have an AOE and Mirror Entity is pretty much useless.

Murloc Paladin

favored - 1 drops and Jade Claws are key. Devolve is also really good. I like keeping Jade Lightning if you have The Coin and a good hand, it deals with Murloc Warleader.

Always try to clear his Murlocs, you don't want them to get a huge swing turn with Murloc Warleader or Gentle Megasaur. Save Hex or Devolve for Spikeridged Steed and Tirion Fordring.

Truesilver ChampionRallying Blade and Consecration are cards to play around. Against the Midrange version: They have Primordial Drake in hand if they played The Curator. Make sure to not overextend into Equality + Consecration.

Control Paladin

slightly favored  Mana Tide Totem is a keep.

Play around Equality + Consecration or Wild Pyromancer. Save Hex and Devolve for Tirion Fordring and Cairne Bloodhoof if they are playing the N'Zoth the Corruptor version.

Pirate Warrior

favored - Bloodsail Corsair is insane. Maelstrom Portal, Jade Claws and Devolve are good. Jade Lightning is good if you have a good hand, it deals with Frothing Berserker and Bloodsail Cultist.

It's pretty straight forward, try to deal with their board and survive. 

Taunt Warrior

unfavored - Mana Tide Totem is important.

Devolve or Hex on an Acolyte of Pain is very good, you want to deny card draw. BrawlRavaging Ghoul + Sleep with the Fishes and Primordial Drake are annoying.

Evolve Shaman

slightly favored - Jade Claws and Bloodsail Corsair are key. Devolve and Maelstrom Portalare also fine.

Always try to clear his minions to play around Evolve and Bloodlust. Your deck has more late game, you should win in the long run. The AOE from Kalimos, Primal Lord is really powerful.

Control Shaman

unfavored - Mana Tide Totem is good.

You don't want to play this matchup. Volcano destroys you, a few lists are even running Lightning Storm.

Midrange Hunter

favored - Fire FlyBloodsail CorsairJade ClawsDevolve and Maelstrom Portal.

Try to not give them beast synergy with Crackling Razormaw and Houndmaster. Devolve is really good against buffs or Savannah Highmane.

Silence Priest

heavily favored - Devolve and Hex destroys them. 

Those cards are good against buffed minions and Faceless Shambler. They usually don't run  AOE or Shadow Word: PainFlametongue Totem and Mana Tide Totem are good if you have board.

Make sure that they don't OTK you with Divine Spirit and Inner Fire later on. Clear his Ancient Watcher or Humongous Razorleaf even if they didn't silence it or play a Taunt. 

Control Priest

favored - Mana Tide Totem is good.

Play around Dragonfire PotionCard Name and you should be fine.

 

 Warlock doesn't exist.

 

6. Questions

How does your Coaching work? 

First of all I'll ask you a few questions, e.g. What was your highest rank so far? What are your goals? Then we'll start playing some games. I'll talk about the specific matchup and the gameplan. You'll suggest a play and then we'll talk about the reasoning behind it. We'll also talk about reading the opponent's hand and when you have to take risks.

Ask me a question in the comment section and I'll answer it here.
