Messing around with Chef Nomi Priest in Casual (minus one Lazul's Scheme because I haven't crafted anything for the deck yet).

IDK what the writer was on, cutting a Mass Hysteria. At least, in aggro matchups this makes very little sense; I guess if you are expecting to face mostly warriors due to the tournament setting it's fine. But yeah, run mass hysteria. If you face a control warrior whom you expect to play Saboteur, you can mass hysteria on an empty board to avoid disaster. But yeah, ladder is always aggro happy, so two hysterias make sense.

Deck is hard to pilot as advertised. I'm not sure yet if I like it. TBH, something that's frustrated me before about decks built around gadgetzan auctioneer is that if the auctioneers are the bottom card of your deck you just die. This deck feels a little bit better about it, because you also have pyro+Acolyte of pain, and you can go full northshire. (I once burned six cards on purpose with double northshire circle of healing because I already had Nomi and 2x Seance in my hand). Still though, even with all of that the RNG of drawing vs not drawing Auctioneer is still real.

Doesn't Warrior just board wipe 3 times and not give a s*** though?

They only have two board wipes that full clear.

Two Brawls. After that all they have is Warpath, which deals a maximum of 5 damage, and Chef Nomi fills the board with 6/6s. Their only possible out is to play Saboteur and hope to hit a Mass Hysteria in your hand (which is why Mass Hysteria gets sideboarded out for the warrior match, and why I am willing to Mass Hysteria on an empty board against warrior on ladder).

Oh hey, the entire Q&A was collected in one place and summarized, which is nice cause scrolling through that topic was not the best UI:

Man, Barnes is not the problem with Big Priest. I mean, it is ONE problem, but changing it will not affect the playability of the deck the way people want. There were Barnesless builds going around a while back. They were still good, if not better.
DPOblivion was far more determined than me.

I got Swampqueen hagatha in my last pack and now I'm considering crafting Shudderwock and crafting into control Shaman as I have most of the cards for it (ironic since like just a few weeks before I had no shaman cards). I have Archivist AND the bartender girl already too. I'm not really happy with the game state right now which is why I have not really been playing much in the last few days.

And people still defend these idiots. The only place you'll find more bulls*** is at a rally for democrats.

Literally none of those are actual answers.

I cut Shudderwock from my Shaman deck. Too often it would just sit there in my hand all game doing nothing for me.
When someone is giving you his opinion, you should receive it with deep gratitude even though it is worthless.
Huh? Finger!? What the hell?
So...one of the meta reports had a wild Even Shaman that looked too slow to be a wild deck.

Corpsetaker in Wild, with five eight-drops and no way to cheat them out. This decklist: https://twitter.com/oMTYLPUPxNanyxG/status/1119108391241052160

So...I tried it, and yeah, the deck is performing surprisingly well for me. There's a ton of aggro decks that run up against a lifesteal corpsetaker, and are like "what is this healing nonsense? How should I respond?" Some wild aggro players outright don't seem to know how to deal with it. I faced a pirate warrior, who hit corpsetaker with his weapon to take off divine shield, and then...chose not to trade in his Kor'Kron Elite. I...Earthen Mighted the corpsetaker, and healed for 10 lol.

Seems to deal with slower decks decently well as well. Devolve is a good card, particularly against Spreading Plague.

Is there an English decklist?
