Weekly Legends: Overload Aggro


I spend a lot of time on Weekly Legends covering odd or interesting decks. Due to the way that Hearthstone is built, that is often some kind of cool control list or a strange midrange deck. However, what about aggro? I know it gets a lot of bad rap, but frankly that is due to the ghosts of Hearthstone’s past such as Undertaker Hunter. I am an avid aggro player, and I love when a new build comes to light. It is hard to create a new aggro list because the ones in the game are so well fleshed-out, but that is exactly what has happened with the last wing of LOE. I always knew there would eventually be some new style of build, I just never would of guessed that it would have been Shaman,

This list was originally made popular by Reynad (a man who I have a lot of respect for), but this more-refined version was created by mowmali. Most good aggro decks are going to have a strong mix of creatures and spells, and this does that beautifully. While I hate Firebat’s original Mech Shaman list (which was basically draw the perfect curve or die) this list is a lot more consistent and has a lot more catch up due to the high amounts of burn. While it may seem odd that one card can bring about an entire new deck, that is exactly what happened here. Hearthstone is a game of changes, and this deck shows how subtle, and yet how important, those changes c

    Does anyone have Luffy’s latest decklist?

  2. Tai says:

    Why can’t I see the deck list ?

    I tried him out for a bit, but Sir Finley Mrrgglton really doesn’t do anything for this deck. I have found that the Shamman hero power is exactly what I want when I need to use a hero power.

    At first, this deck when poorly for me, but on subsequent tries it is doing quite well! My biggest problem: Dragon Priest.

    I LOVE playing this deck. It feels totally unexpected on the ladder, really seems to catch opponents off guard. Toughest match ups are taunt Priest or aggro Warrior and Rogue but this deck carves through Druid and Paladin like butter.

    Interesting and strong versus a couple of decks. But I had big Problems against Taunt-Decks, Aggro Decks and Druids / Warrior at all. 5:5 so far.

    I tried an Agro Shaman posted on another site and, frankly, it was terrible. This version looks to be a much more consistent and coherent deck concept. I look forward to trying it out.

    What would you think of teching in Sir Finley Mrrgglton? Perhaps replacing one of the Flametoungue’s with him?

    • thetvsurgeon says:

      Yeah, I agree. This has a much sharper focus. Honestly, while I do like him, he’s probably way too slow for this deck. Unless you are getting Hunter’s hero power its probably not worth it.

    Can you discuss why you don’t include Unbound Elemental?

    • thetvsurgeon says:

      This deck is a little more aggressive than the classic version. With the extra burst you want to run charge minions for good topdecks or damage potential instead of a 2/4 that curves better.

  8. Alias says:

    Hey there, do you think this deck will move to Tier 1? I have 1200 dust, I’m looking to start a deck, should I start Midrange Paladin or this deck?

    League of Explorers is not an issue, as I plan on getting it anyways.

    • thetvsurgeon says:

      That’s a tricky question. I don’t like discussing decks in “tiers” because I think that’s just an arbitrary ranking system made up by other players. However, if I were to discuss this in tiers, I would say I’m not sure if this will climb all the way to tier 1. That being said, it is a deck that you can absolutely take to legend if you’re looking just to make a run. When building also look at Reynad’s original list as well.
