Sad thing, instead boosting mid-range or mech shaman, they are stubborn on trying to make totem shaman playable. And for now I'm gonna call failure on it.
Of course a full-on totem deck will be a failure But that's no different from every other tribe (except mechs). However, it isn't hard to imagine shaman using some of the new totem synergy cards in a midrange decklist.

Are you... serious ?
Um, yes. I love Shaman and unlike others I want it to stop being gimmick. Opting so hard for totems synergy doesn't appeal to me at all and in so powercreeped meta I can't hardly imagine it working.
If you want totems to stop being "gimmick", then you need good totem cards/synergy. Your post doesn't make any sense. The only way for totems to remain gimmick is exactly to buff mech/midrange.
Jesus, can't you really ready? I want Shaman to get better, not totems and gimmick fun decks, which will never see competitive play. Good universal Shaman cards like Golem are what I seek for, not gimmicky totem synergizes which will have no use outisde fun decks.
