Token Shaman (also known as Bloodlust Shaman) is a Shaman deck type. It is a variant of Aggro Shaman that aims to swarm the board and finish off the game with Bloodlust. The deck is built with a surplus of low-cost minions, most of which generate extra minions ("tokens") as well. This allows the deck to very easily flood the board and refill very efficiently. It also runs a light removal package with Jade Lightning and Maelstrom Portal, both of which also generate minions.

The deck can be built in various ways. Doppelgangster and Evolve is a common inclusion, as they together work as a great comeback mechanic that allows the deck to fight into the late game easier. A light Elemental package topped off with Kalimos, Primal Lord can also be run. Another popular build opts to run Finja, the Flying Star alongside Murloc Warleader and Bluegill Warrior as a light and independent Murloc package that can single-handedly snowball the board.
