  • You want to start off the game on the right foot ideally with Mistress of Mixtures or Jade Claws.

  • Start ramping up your Jade Golems right away and build up some board presence. 

  • Try to use Evolve, Devolve, and Master of Evolution efficiently. Wait for a decent board that will get a lot of value for either one. Remember to trade or otherwise use your minion(s) before you evolve them, and aim to use the effects on mid to high cost minions. Sometimes it may be acceptable to use it on just one or two minions, though. It depends on the situation. Devolve can get you out of many sticky situations, and make them slippery instead.

  • Be aware of the mana costs of minions that exist in the game. Remember you can not Devolve Arcane Giant or Mountain Giant for example, because there are no 11 mana minions in the game.

  • Decide how you want to use Brann Bronzebeard there are several purposes for this card. You can combo it with Jade Claws, Jade Spirit, Jade Chieftain, [/card]master of evolution[/card] and Aya Blackpaw for example, or any sort of card draw also. You could potentially draw cards as well.

Card Breakdown

Card Words
Evolve One of the key cards of this deck that forms part of your strategy. Try to use it efficiently on mid to high-cost minions for best value. It may be fine to use it on fewer minions at times, use your judgement.
Devolve This is a unique form of removal and a very powerful tool to screw with your opponents. This can completely scramble their board an reduce it's value at the same time. 
Jade Claws This is a really cool weapon and i like it more than i thought i would. It's nice to have the damage available and it's a great card to initialize your jade golem progress.
Bloodmage Thalnos This is a very solid and valuable classic legendary. The draw will help cycle and the spell damage will help with clearing the board or lethal. Just make sure you do not evolve it! If you don't have this you should strongly consider crafting it.
Lightning Storm  This is your only aoe that does damage, so use it carefully. Don't forget about spell power.
Far Sight The main purpose of this card is to cycle, but the discount it provides can be unexpectedly amazing by enabling some exciting and powerful evolutionary shenanigans.
Hex A very powerful removal tool that you will want to save for really threatening targets or hard to clear minions.
Jade Lightning This is a really nice damage spell. I like the 4 damage and i love the jade golem. Very nice tool.
Master of Evolution This is a card you never want to have in your mulligan, but otherwise it is a very strong card. You will want to have a decent target and try to get full value out of that target before you re purpose it.
Jade Chieftain This is a very powerful card with awesome synergy. Aside from the obvious battlecry synergy, this 7 mana body is a fantastic target for evolution.
Jinyu Waterspeaker This is a fancy new healing card for shaman and it is actually pretty decent. Previous I had been using Mistress of Mixtures, but the 1 mana minions feel bad in this deck and the battlecry can combo with brann bronzebeard.
Brann Bronzebeard One battlecry is good, why not two?!
Maelstrom Portal This is a good, flexible spending which should aid you with full boards. Try to get spell damage first.
Jade Spirit This contributes to the jade golem effort and is a reasonable combo with Brann Bronzebeard
Azure Drake This is a pretty straightforward inclusion.
Doppelgangster The main purpose for this card is to combo it with evolve and get 3 6-cost minions. Pretty exciting combo!
Aya Blackpaw Definitely an auto-include, in my opinion, for any jade golem deck. I really enjoy this card and it can spawn some great tokens to fight for the board and evolve as well.
