The Place for Your Hearthstone Needs!
I believe everyone is used to the traditional Shaman, where he builds up a strong board control, before unleashing massive damage upon the opponent!
In this week’s ‘Magic Decks’, we will be covering the Spell Power Shaman, which is an unorthodox version used by Kero in last week’s HAT Singapore 2013!
The aim of this deck is to maintain board control with a good usage of spells and minions, before you bring out the hurt with your mid-late game minions. The focus of the deck is Malygos, a legendary minion that is not often seen in constructed decks nowadays.
We will go through the decklist before explaining about it in further detail:
The general lightning spells, Stormforged Axe, Feral Spirit, and Totemic Call (Shaman’s Hero Power) are used to keep the opponent at bay, as the deck slowly picks up the pace in the late game.
Unbound Elemental works well in this deck, due to its ability to pile up the damage from the Overload effects, while the elementals provide another form of resistance; Battlecry Damage or Taunt.
Azure Drake and Defender of Argus help to prop up the field, with their utility and fairly good stats for mid-game minions, while Malygos and Ragnaros the Firelord bring home the bacon, with the insane damage they pack into the deck.
