Battlecry Shaman with tag ‘ Battlecries to make opponent cry’ is one of the most trending deck nowadays. Battlecry shaman Deck is also known as Quest Shaman. The deck Battlecry shaman comes under the category of mid-range. It is one of the compelling top Hearthstone decks.
Battlecry Shaman Deck Strategy
Initially, Battlecry Shaman deck is not very powerful. However, you are unstoppable after the completion of a quest called Corrupt the Warrior. To complete the quest, use your battlecry minions and cards. Also, try to remove enemy minions whenever possible so that your defence is strong throughout the game.
After the completion of the quest (Corrupt the Warrior), you can follow up with two strategies. The first one would be to use the Heart of Vir’ naal. By doing this, you will be able to provide extra damage to your enemy. The second strategy would be to use the Hero Power along with Galakrond. This would offer you a fantastic opportunity to pressurize your enemy. Although, go for the second strategy only if there is a higher chance of you winning. This is because the ability to use Heart of Vir’ naal, later on, will not be available.
Some particular cards should be used if your opponent has an aggro deck. This is because these cards will have a much adverse effect on your enemy. These cards are Sandstorm Elemental, Weaponized Wasp and Galakrond, the Tempest.
Similarly, there are cards that should be used if your opponent has a control warrior deck. For completing the quest in Battlecry Shaman, use Sandstorm Elemental along with minions. Then, when using a card along with Heart of Vir’ naal you can opt for Sludge Slurper, EVIL Cable Rat and Novice Engineer.
