Standard Legend Aggro Shaman
Aggro Shaman has the potential to do ridiculous amounts of damage and can put any deck on a clock. Whether they are playing against aggro or control some games can be over by turn 5 -6. Aggro Shaman is one of the strongest decks in Whispers of the Old Gods and has had much success in the Legend ladder and in competitive play.

Keep in mind that when playing Aggro Shaman that“the face is the place”, your goal is to rush down your opponent. Try to take control of the early game, a Lightning Bolt can always be used as a removal tool in order to protect your board, minions that stick can deal a lot of damage over time.
Plan your future turns and count your damage, sometimes you have the damage in hand to kill your opponent in two turns. Apply pressure early game with minions and use burn spells and Doomhammer to finish.
In almost every scenario, you want early minions such as Tunnel Trogg, Flame Juggler, Argent Squire, Totem Golem, Flame Juggler and Sir Finley Mrrgglton. When you have no other minion in hand keeping Abusive Sergeant is also reasonable, especially with Argent Squire.
Against control or midrange you’ll want [Feral Spirits] they are great versus weapon classes and protect your board.
When on the coin use [The Coin] + Totem Golem and follow it up with a turn 1 Argent Squire / Abusive Sergeant. You can also use [The Coin] to play your Feral Spirit on turn 2, and have a 3/3 Tunnel Trogg and 2x 2/3 Feral Spirit.
When you have an okay hand keeping Doomhammer versus Priest / Rogue and warrior is also reasonable.
Combos & Tips
- Sir Finley Mrrgglton: What you pick from finley is matchup dependent, but most of the time when you’re close to lethal you pick [Steady Shot] and if it’s not available [Shapeshift] (synergy with Doomhammer)
- Doomhammer + Rockbiter Weapon is 10 Damage
- Flametongue Totem placement is important, you usually want to place your sticky minions (for example: Flamewreathed Faceless, [Totem Golemn]) on the left side of the board and your weaker minions, such as Abusive Sergeant on the right so you can get the most out of your Flametongue Totem
