You have no right to cancer other decks if you play Midrange Shaman, even brutal turn 4 win face aggro pirate. And yes, until Renolock/Goon Paladin and Dragon Priest become meta (if), it should be still easy to win with it.
Nonono) "Cancer" is a deck which goes which strictly goes to face no matter what, like pirates or say aggro hunter at the times of HS beta) Midrange shaman is a deck where you have to think. Time to time :D
It's a bit less autopilot than other people think. From a deckbuilding perspective it's pretty cut and dry, but the gameplay aspects in the mirror are actually skillful at times, overloading a lot on one specific turn so that you have more full mana usage two turns later. At least Mid Sham makes trades, like Zoolock. WoToG-Aggro Shaman, Face Warrior, and Face Hunter are definitely degenerate though.
Aggro Shaman, Face Warrior, and Face Hunter are also extremely all-in because they can't rely on out-valuing their opponent. With the amount of heals and board clears floating around, they're hardly degenerate since you can counter them extremely hard; no more than Midrange is degenerate for being nearly impossible to hard counter, and no more than Jade Golem decks are degenerate because they make Control players cry. On top of that they're still going to make trades (if you don't you're most likely just playing badly), just less of them in a game because your minions will never contest something later in the game; I'm not disagreeing that there are nuances to Midrange Shaman, but it's blatantly ignorant to state aggressive decks aren't on par for nuanced decisions.
People have also made it annoying habit to use cancer to describe any number of things; essentially all it boils down to is what decks are making you salty and if you like them or not personally, which makes for a horrible generic term since what I consider a cancer deck is nothing like what anyone else might.
