Why Isn't Shaman Viable?
I remember when I first started playing Hearthstone competitively I chose Shaman as the class that I liked the most. Over the span of a few months I managed to crack into past Rank 15 and felt so very accomplished. It was a rough ride full of frustrating RNG, painful losses, and close wins. It wasn't until some time later that I discovered the joy that was Hunter that I realized exactly how hamstrung I was simply by choosing the Shaman class. Despite three sets of new cards releasing since then, Shaman is still in a very bad spot at the bottom of the meta rankings. Only Priest, which recently got a competitive Dragon archetype is even somewhat close to the numbers that Thrall puts up month after month.
Looking back at it, as someone who's broken Rank 2 a few times, I remember the class fondly in a time where I wasn't worried what was in the meta or even knew what netdecking was. But here and now, with most now being more aware than ever what's good and what's terrible, Shaman struggles to make a case for itself.
After the jump, we take a look at exactly why this class isn't viable.

Mechanized Alternatives: Mech Shaman Deck
Mech Mages are running rampant in Ranked play right now. Their ability to seize control of the board early on with cheap Mech minions, and finish the game with a few well placed s make them one of the most consistent and popular decks to play. But the time has come for the other classes of Hearthstone to make Mech synergy work. One deck in particular that has recently made it’s way into the spotlight is a Mech Shaman deck that had some
legendary results for Team Archon’s Firebat and PurpleDrank
is one of the scariest cards in a Mech Mage deck and it is just as gut-wrenching to play against here. A 2/3 for 2 Mana is a respectable amount of stats, but it’s really in here to allow rapid deployment of the higher end of the Mech curve. This low-attack Mech gets some longer legs in this deck as well thanks to damage-boosting Shaman cards like and .
A lot of the other staple minions of Mech Mage can be found here as well. is a great turn 1 play when you have 2-drop Mech in hand. does its job beautifully here as well, and I would argue does it better since little Mech can got to 3 Attack when placed next to a Flametongue Totem, or go to 4 with a Rockbiter. is wonderful if a Mech is already in play, but there’s only one of him for that same reason. s and s bring the bargain stats. And s bring the Deathrattle value. Read on for more!
