Checking out that doomhammer deck off the front page, looks great.
just got myself zentimo for that and then 2 x henchclan hags for my murloc deck (the shudderwock version) and for carpet shaman. I plan on getting the legendary spell next for carpet/token shaman to get some use from the card in standard before it rotates. would have been a cool one to have in gold.
I'm playing a Control Shaman with Zentimo, Krag'wa, Electra, Shudderwock, Hagatha and Swampqueen, but that's because I love playing with Shaman legendaries. I personally don't recommend it for laddering.
sounds like what I'm playing, only without zentimo. I don't care about laddering tbh mate neither.
going to craft zentimo as soon as I have the dust and will add him as well.
The best shaman deck (Murloc Shaman) doesn't run any of the legendaries you mentioned.
It does run both Hagathas and Shudderwock though, for your shaman legendaries. Some builds even include Scargil.
I've seen some control shaman lists and most of them only run Zentimo, out of the three cards you mentioned. Control shaman's problem is that control warrior does nearly everything better. The only upside that control shaman has over control warrior is that it can consistently pull double Elysiana, which isn't really that relevant anymore, and that it has a better matchup against mech based decks. Problem is that mech based decks are dropping in popularity. Midrange hunter seems stronger in the current meta than bomb hunter, and mech paladin has long been overshadowed by other decks.
So yeah... If you want a good shaman deck, go with the murlocs.
I already have all these cards and decks btw. just wondering what other people are playing.
I have at least 5 different murloc shaman decks right now.
I don't really like playing popular decks, this is why I play like tier 4 krag'wa shaman and more weird decks. More foten than not the decks perform extremely well when piloted correctly, they're just not as straight forward.
I had been hoping to get my HC hags so I can finish the shudder murloc deck, but I ended up playing other things in the end as theres so many options for shaman at the minute.
Been away from the game for most of the month while I've been playing some WoW. Just wanna jump in and grab my card back for the month really.
Wondering what the deal is after the nerfs and such, is everything more or less the same? Was probably going to play an aggressive overload deck with electra, but I'd actually added her to my control deck as well and was having great success using her with haunted visions.
I would like to play some control shaman as well I reckon. Either way I'll definitely be running Electra. Maybe it's because I'd not really messed with shaman since old gods, but electra completely flew under my radar, one of my favourite legendaries in the game right now.
I'm wondering if crafting zentimo might be decent at the minute, is there a lot of call for triple hexes maybe?
Also what you think about Krag'wa? I have found that the card can be invaluable, but it's also really easy to make mistakes and overdraw. Used right it's an amazing card though. I definitely prefer the whole krag'wa/miracle style deck to the pyromancer cycle versions that are probably actually better for sheer winrates alone. I've just never been much of a fan of the cycle playstyle.
What shaman decks you think are good right now? what legendaries you rate?
