Wild format

With the start of the Year of the Dragon, Genn Greymane and even-cost related cards rotated to wild, making Even Shaman a wild-exclusive archetype. For more information, see Game format.

Those who thought this deck dead in the water got quite the shock.

Even Shaman is a Shaman deck type. It is a token-based deck which aims to create a wide board while maintaining their board with single-target removal effects. Their reduced Hero Power cost from Genn Greymane lets them continuously summon Totems, which are combined with Attack buffing cards like Dire Wolf Alpha and Earthen Might to use them to attack. If the game goes late, Hagatha the Witch provides them constant value generation while looking for a potential game-ending spell. Coincidentally, with many strong Elemental, Totem, and Jade Golem synergy cards being even-costed, Even Shaman is a surprisingly flexible deck that can use these alternative strategies.
