Hey everyone, I'm Gatormatthew. I finish top 500 on NA every month, and I make educational Hearthstone content. Today's guide is on Evolve Shaman. This deck includes a lot of new cards is a hell of a lot of fun. Below, I have a quick guide + a 20-minute video where I play a few games with the deck and explain my choices. Hope you enjoy it!
Mulligan Guide: This sounds absolutely crazy. Only look for Cagematch Custodian. The card blows every other card in the deck out of the water. If you have Cagematch Custodian, you are fine keeping things like Desert Hare, Sneaky Delinquent, and Pit Master.
Specific Card Choices: The most interesting exclusions from this deck in my list are Revolve and Mutate. They both looked horrible in the data, and they both did not have much value. This deck relies entirely on Boggspine Knuckles. Mutate and Revolve are both somewhat side win conditions to Boggspine Knuckles, but who cares? If we don't have the Boggspine, we aren't going to win anyway. Other notable inclusions arePrize Vendor and Novice Engineer. These cards replace themselves in your hand, leading to bigger Derailed Coaster turns, and also draw us towards.... you guessed it, Boggspine Knuckles.
If you want to see me play live on Twitch, I stream every weekend from 1pm-3pm EST and every Mon/Wed/Fri from 1:45pm-3:45pm EST. Link to Twitch
