Hi guys, this is a small test I'm currently making. I pretty much love the Shaman class but not a big fan of the aggro/burst version. This is a pretty interesting and synergistic deck. It has a really good early game similar to the aggro/burst version but with a few tweaks here and there, continuing with a strong high curve of efficient minions such as Fire Elemental and Dr. Balance.
Give it a shot and give me some suggestions. To my defense I thought of adding a Bloodlust but I'm not that sure it would fit in perfectly since it might be an awkward draw most of the time.
So leave comments with suggestions please. It's the start of the season and now is the time for experiments.
So guys thanks to your feedback I managed to make some modifications and fit in some cards that you have recommended.
1)We'll start with Bloodlust; i have also noticed that in most games i tend to have a really good board control and not really that much damage on board, so bloodlust offers a boost that helps push in some much needed damage to either win the game or make some really favorable trades (worst case scenario).
2) I really felt the need to add a singleton Earth Shock. This card is pretty versatile and can have many uses. Currently we can all see a lot of secret paladin on ladder. Using earth shock we can both deal with high buffed minions with Blessing and kings, and can also help in the cases of Tirion ( a secondary solution, the first being Hex). Plus I still see a few Reno locks and very occasionally handlocks, and earth shocking a Twilight drake is huge value. Also good for mad scientists, shielded minibots and even belchers if needed.
3) Swapping a Crackle for a Lightning Bolt. This is more of a personal preference. I recommend this deck to be played with 2 low mana removals. You can do it however you would like, either 2 Crackle or 2 Lightning Bolt or 1 Crackle and 1 Lightning Bolt. It's up to you how you mix it up, as I said this is more of a personal reference.
TLDR: -1 Mana Tide Totem => +1 Earth Shock; -1 Crackle => +1 Lightning Bolt; -1 Sludge Belcher => +1 Bloodlust
Again guys, thanks for all the support and feedback, this is actually my first deck posted on Hearthpwn and I am amazed of the community how it supports its self. I will constantly post updates and I will do my best to transition this deck into standard when the new format hits the live servers. Good luck on the ladder!
