Hearthstone: Aggro Shaman

Hello everybody, Geek Generation here. This time round i tried an aggro Shaman list which is characterized by double Flamewreathed Faceless and double Feral Spirit.

1 x Earth Shock
2 x Lightning Bolt
1 x Patches the Pirate
1 x Sir Finley Mrrgglton
2 x Small-Time Buccaneer
1 x Southsea Deckhand
2 x Spirit Claws
2 x Tunnel Trogg
1 x Bloodmage Thalnos
2 x Flametongue Totem
2 x Jade Claws
2 x Maelstrom Portal
2 x Totem Golem
2 x Feral Spirit
2 x Lava Burst
2 x Flamewreathed Faceless
2 x Jade Lightning
1 x Aya Blackpaw

The single Earth Shock is really important. Against Jades you can hit Aya Blackpaw with it, Druids have Ancient of War, Rogues have Edwin Vancleef and Warlocks generally have Twilight Drake. The low mana cost of Earth Shake is extremely relevant when you coin out Totem Golem. If the opponent responds with Doomsayer, you can Earth Shock but not Devolve.

The thing i didn’t like about the deck was again the pirate package. Sure, pirates sometimes give a really aggressive opening, but to activate the Buccaneers reliably, more weapons is needed. Having so many weapons gives the opportunity to mulligan into triple weapons which would be a really bad starting hand. Plus, drawing a Small-Time Buccaneer late game is as good as drawing a dud.

The other card that i really didn’t like in the deck was Sir Finley Mrrgglton. I see so many shamans playing it, but it has never worked for me. With only one Bloodmage Thalnos to provide spell power to two Spirit Claws, Totemic Call is really important. It seems alot of times i’m hero powering for a chance to activate Spirit Claws when i do not even have Thing From Below in the deck. I feel that Sir Finley Mrrgglton has no place in a deck that runs double Spirit Claws.

Class Win Loss
Druid 1 1
Hunter 0 1
Mage 1 1
Paladin 0 1
Priest 1 1
Rogue 5 1
Shaman 1 4
Warlock 1 0
Warrior 2 3
Total 12 13

No Coin Win/Loss: 7/5 (58%)
Woth Coin Win/Loss: 5/8 (38%)

The win rate wasn’t very good. My matches with Shaman were mostly variations of aggro mirror, which played out to be very frustrating when the rng went against me in most of the cases. I dropped back down to rank 9 from rank 8 playing the deck.

I can’t play very many type of decks, not having the neccessary legendaries. No Leeroy and VanCleef for Miracle Rogue, no Kazakus for reno decks, no Aviana and Kun for control Druid. So i decided to give aggro shaman another try; -1 Sir Finley, -1 Aya, +2 Azure Drakes.

I feel that Azure Drakes outclass Aya this particular deck in all aspects. Sometimes, you just don’t get early jades. An Aya that spawns a 2/2 after it dies is not really very impressive.

Class Win Loss
Druid 0 1
Hunter 0 0
Mage 0 0
Paladin 0 0
Priest 2 1
Rogue 0 2
Shaman 1 1
Warlock 2 0
Warrior 1 0
Total 6 5

Ok so much for now, Geek Generation out.
