Hello everyone, Piggie here with a first day OTK Shaman deck.
I have watched several videos where a new combo was explained with the new card Bolner Hammerbeak. However, I did not see such a deck in any of the theory crafting streams, which is why I took things into my own hands.
By playing at least one corrupted Circus Medic and Dunk Tank and then playing Bolner Hammerbeak followed up by Y'Shaarj, the Defiler, we can create a loop. If we have one corrupted Circus Medic and Dunk Tank from Y'Shaarj, the Defiler, Bolner's effect ensures we always get back these two cards when we play our Circus Medic. Since we get another Circus Medic and Dunk Tank from the combination of Y'Shaarj, the Defiler and Bolner Hammerbeak, we essentially have inifinite damage. Note that this combo also works with just corrupting only your Circus Medic.
I might hear you think right now: "But this combo costs 12 mana, and by the law of hearthstone, I can only have 10 mana at a maximum". Fear no more, we have multiple ways to ensure we can complete this combo. First up is Lightning Bloom, if we keep one of these for our combo turn, there is no problem. A second way of enabling the combo, if we had to use our Lightning Bloom in the early game, is by the combination of Cagematch Custodian and Auctionhouse Gavel. This means we can reduce our battlecries by a total of 4 mana. If we want to hit our Y'Shaarj, the Defiler with the Auctionhouse Gavel, we do have to make sure our hand is quite empty, because there are a lot of battlecries in this deck.
I put this combo in an elemental package such that we have a chance against aggresive opponents. Against control, we can carry out our combo and win that way.
A great addition to the elemental package are both Canal Slogger and Granite Forgeborn. By first controlling the board with our cheap elementals and then cheating out our higher cost elementals ensures we also have great midgame. If we then go to the lategame, we have got 2 great new cards. The first one is Cornelius Roame, who ensures we are able to get to our combly quickly and is an must-kill for the opponent. The second card is Varian, King of Stormwind. He pulls our Canal Slogger for rush, Earth Revenant for taunt and Taelan Fordring (who tutors our Y'Shaarj, the Defiler) for divine shield. He makes for very efficient removal as well as up to 3 card draw.
I have played this deck for 5 games now, winning all 5 games. I know it is very, very early still, but I thought I'd share this deck because it is a nice new take on Shaman.
Let me know if you have any suggestions or remarks.
Have a nice one,
