The New Standard: Control Shaman
This week on The New Standard we take a dive into the meta again and take a crack at Control Shaman. When Mean Streets first dropped I instantly knew I wanted to play Control Shaman. Not only does the deck have some extremely powerful tools at its disposal, but it also has some of the most fun cards in the game. At its core, the deck has everything you need to win. You have healing, you have AOE, and you have some of the strongest spot removal around. That spread gives you a very powerful core that can go toe-to-toe with just about anything else you’ll encounter on the ladder. However, for the longest time I could not get it to work. I initially tried to go into a more spell-based version of this list with big finishers and things like Arcane Giants, but it just wasn’t working. However, after a lot of deliberation and tweaking I finally came to a list that I think is strong enough to take on the ladder.
