This is Boltzmann's take on Freeze Shudderwock Shaman. This deck performs very well against Pirate Warrior. In this video, we go into some depth, on the structure of the deck and justifications for different card inclusions. If you have questions, please post them below, and I am sure Boltzmann will respond.
0:16 Stress relief against Pirate Warrior :-)

I hope everyone had a great Christmas! We go back to Jade Druid - this time with Wildheart Guff! Having more mana to work with is a game changer - and is taking me time to figure out how to play effectively.
31st December update: Copa's Corrupted Reno Shaman, ft. Shudderwock and Y'Shaarj, the Defiler!
Happy New Year everyone! Another interesting off-meta Reno Shaman build, with Y'Shaarj, the Defiler and Freeze effects.
I was rather embarrassed - when part way through the video, I realised that Dunk Tank can target face. After talking to the deck author, I then realised why the Emperor is in the deck (to discount Bolner and Y'Shaarj). At that point, I realised the OTK potential of the deck.
So in conclusion... it would help if I actually read the card text before playing cards I am not familiar with! This was still a great learning experience though and a lot of fun! Beating Pirate Warrior and Odd Hunter is still an awesome achievement for an off-meta deck. I played this as a Reno Shaman deck, rather than an OTK deck. Turns out that works well too! 10 wins and 5 losses is pretty good!
5th January update: GetMeowth's Freeze Shudderwock Shaman, ft. Grumble, Worldshaker!
Another version of Freeze Shaman - but this time with Grumble, Worldshaker. A wonderful start to the January 2022 season - all footage is from day 1 and day 2 of the season. Thanks to GetMeowth for the deck.
9th January update: EnDjinn's Reno Hakkar Paladin: Travelling through the Diamond ladder!
The quote from Gandalf is very relevant at the start: "So do all who live to see such times but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us."
How do we use the time that is given to us? I am glad that I have invested the time to try this great off-meta deck. Thanks to EnDjinn - I am 9-4 with this deck, and it has helped me to traverse the diamond ladder!
27th February update: DannyJi's Shudderwock Shaman, ft. Kazakusan!
More of a fun deck than a competitive deck - but this deck is capable of winning games and getting you through the ladder. Kazakusan from the Onyxia's Lair miniset is more of a fun inclusion - the problem is games not lasting long enough to play him!
3rd April update: Boltzmann's Reno Shudderwock Shaman, ft. Blademaster Okani!
Thanks to Boltzmann for the deck. It has been a while since I have played Reno Shaman! Blademaster Okani continues to feel solid and fun! Reno Shaman has more or less disappeared from the Wild meta. However, it can still be good under certain circumstances... and gives me some hope for the future!
