Hey guys, I'm MoogleMog, a frequent legend player who enjoys brewing and playing off-meta decks.  My friend DuskSculptor and I wanted to build a deck around Snowfury Giant, and this deck is the result of our testing and refining.  DuskSculptor successfully used the deck to climb from Rank 10 to Rank 5.  I started using the deck above 5 and have been hanging around Rank 2-3.  

The list utilizes Shaman's removal cards for survival and then follows it up with huge swing turns and value off of jades, evolve, and discounted fat bodies.  Note that the deck has a high skill ceiling, as overload cards, Doomsayer, Stonehill Defender, Volcano, and Evolve/Devolve shenanigans take a lot of skill to use optimally. 

Updates:

Added Doomsayer usage guide, renamed the deck

Tweaked the deck to improve faster matchups and updated the guide.

Thanks for the responses!  Matchup guides have been added.

How to use Doomsayer effectively:

  • Drop the Doomsayer on turn 2 or 3 (maybe even coin it out on turn 1) to remove the opponent’s 1 or 2 drop(s), while also preventing them from making a meaningful turn 2-3 play and giving you initiative. Example: against another Shaman who coins out Primalfin Totem, playing a turn 2 Doomsayer will remove both the totem and the murloc as well as force him to waste his turn using his hero power.  When it’s your turn again, you can play a Mana Tide Totem or Stonehill Defender on an uncontested board.
  • Follow up a big AOE with a Doomsayer to prevent your opponent from refilling the board after a clear. Example: after using Lightning Storm or Volcano to clear most (if not all) of your opponent’s minions, play a Doomsayer with your remaining mana.  Now your opponent has to deal with the Doomsayer before they can refill the board, which usually means that they simply pass their turn and give you initiative.
  • Contest a board with less than 7 attack. Example: a Warlock plays a 4/10 Twilight Drake on an empty board, you respond with Doomsayer. Now your opponent needs Shadow Bolt or some other removal in order to save his 4/10 minion from a 2 drop.  Keep in mind what your opponent can play and how likely it is that he can clear the Doomsayer.  A taunt totem or Stonehill Defender can help the chances that your Doomsayer survives and clears the board.
  • Play Doomsayer as a soft taunt to soak up damage while you try to draw removal. It can also bait out cards like Devolve and Vilespine Slayer, which makes Earth Elemental safer to play.
