Totem Shaman (TGT PARTY)

Post #1 by TubeHunter » Wed Aug 26, 2015 5:04 am

Well TGT has been out for a few days, so lets get this thing started with probably my favorite new deck, Totem shaman.

First, my list

[deck=Totem Shaman]
Shaman Cards
1 Earth Shock
2 Rockbiter Weapon
1 Ancestral Knowledge
2 Flametounge Totems
2 Totem Golem
2 Hex
2 Lightning Storm
2 Tuskarr Totemic
1 Mana Tide Totem
2 Thunder-Bluff Valiant
2 Fire Elemental

Non Shaman

2 Haunted Creeper
1 Big Game Hunter
1 Mind Control Tech
2 Defender of Argus
2 Piloted Shredder
2 Azure Drake
1 Dr. Boom
[/deck]


Had anyone here tested this deck as well. Any good tech you would like to share? I have been playing Mind control tech myself and it has been excellent. A lot of decks seem to want to jam as many minons on the board that they can, and Mind control tech has been great as both that and a comeback mechanism to take back the board. His slot could go to Gormok, I have not acquired him, would be excellent to hear about it. I would love to hear about any other small things that you've learned about the deck.

PS: Play your tuskar totemic to the left of whatever minion you would most like a flametounge buff on because of the totem spawning directly to the right of the totemic. It actually cost me a game where i missed out on the 2 free damage.

A few legends and I are testing variations, I'll do a write up over the weekend.

For now, get an Al'akir. If you only want 1 silence, consider Ironbeak owl.

That's not really true - it would be true in a different archetype, but not in Shaman.

Tuskar Totemic has been pretty hit or miss for me. If we ran another 3-drop I'd be willing to accept this, but there are too many times where I need to hit something relevant to maintain board control because rando 3/2 is not doing it. LP mentioned Harvest Golem which I've somewhat liked. Going to keep trying that and Spider Tank short-term. Also I think some sort of hybrid mech midrange could work very well. Powermace is very well positioned ATM.

^ agree with this conclusion. Not sure whether I like Harvest Golem or Spidertank more right now, would need to look the exact meta breakdown, though Harvest Golem is a bit better vs Paladin specifically.
