Muzzy decided to race to legend this season (season 31, Oct 16) and within 48 hours had hit rank 1. This is the Muzzy Rank 1 Legend Oct Midrange Shaman Deck he used for most of the climb, in particular the end part of the climb.
I saw him try a few different decks during the climb, but if you want to get the job done Shaman is still the strongest class overall and has the most consistency across the current META.
This is a pretty standard midrange list. Thet Harrison Jones tech is always a good choice and I love including this card. It gives you an advantage in the mirror match, and there are always plenty of Warriors on ladder. You can keep Harrison if you have the coin in a mirror match, you will usually end up sending a Spirit Claws to the museum.
Here is another list that has been played to rank 1 legend. Have a play with this Rank 1 Legend NA Midrange Shaman Season 30 deck if you want to climb the ladder with a decent win ratio.
There have been a number of midrange Shaman ladder lists and they all perform really well. They are not the hardest decks to play either, so if you really can’t ladder up with this deck you need to go over the fundamentals and improve your understanding of the matchups.
If you want a current midrange Shaman list this is the Loyan Karazhan Midrange Shaman Top 100 Legend list he’s using on ladder.
Loyan is well-known for his Shaman lists so you can’t go wrong net-decking off him. This is a pretty standard list. I’m glad he dropped the Flamejugglers, those guys always seem to go face for me. The inclusion of two Maelstrom Portal’s brings some of the new Karazhan flavor to the list and helps vs Zoolock which has always been one of the hardest matchups.
It’s a really strong list in the current META and I don’t see it changing for some time now that we know all the Karazhan cards.
Mulligan Guide for Midrange Shaman
Getting a fast start with Shaman is devastating for opponents. Mulligan hard for Argent Squires and Tunnel Troggs, leading into Flametongue Totem and Totem Golem on turn two. Keep a Maelstrom vs aggo, particularly Zoolock. Try and hold it until they use Forbidden Ritual if you can as it’s the perfect counter.
If you want to use the Best Shaman Deck August 16 Season 29 ladder climb then is has to be this midrange list. I made it to legend with this exact list.
It has some of the aggro Shaman cards for extra burst, while having those strong late game minions and with double Hex you can make some value plays to keep you in the game vs control decks.
If you’re meeting a lot of aggro decks switch the Stormcrack for another Lightning Bolt, and swap a Mana Tide Totem for a Doomhammer. Shaman is Tier one right now, take advantage and race up the ladder.
