Overload Burn Shaman

Hey everyone! I'm Funki Monki and all I do is create meta-breaking (hopefully) homebrew decks!  This new creation, [Hearthstone Card (Overload Burn Shaman) Not Found], was inspired by some of the new Descent of Dragons cards: Surging Tempest, Squallhunter and Cumulo-Maximus .  All of these new cards just SCREAM overload burn synergy so it turns a classic shaman favorite into a whole new monster! Of course we use the classic core of Rockbiter Weapon + Doomhammer, Lava Burst, Lightning Bolt, etc but now we have EVEN MORE ways to burst our opponent down!  I've had a lot of fun with this deck on ladder and I hope you do too! 

Full write-up below.  I spent a fair amount of time on this guide to help you learn it, so if this guide is helpful don't forget to upvote to help others see it as well!


General Strategy:

 This is a very aggressive style of deck, that aims to close out games as quickly as possible.  We'll start off by chipping down our opponent with early minions like Sludge Slurper, Surging Tempest and Voltaic Burst.  We might buff up a minion with Earthen Might otherwise we'll just totem for a turn or 2 and wait for turns 3-4.  Thats when we can play our Spirit of the Frog and just cycle our damage spells or we can play our big mid game minions like Squallhunter or Thunderhead.  There is not much draw in this deck besides Spirit of the Frog so we have to maximize every point of damage that we can and draw as many cards as possible when it is on the board.  Our burst spells like Lightning Bolt or Lava Burst are best kept in hand until you're close to killing the opponent, and most of the time you'll want to shoot them at your opponents face unless you believe the opponent can out-race you. Doomhammer and Cumulo-Maximus you want to play ASAP to maximize damage over multiple turns.  To make sure the opponent doesn't build up too big of a board and out-race you we also have a Beakered Lightning to combine with Squallhunter as a board clear or to start the chain with Spirit. 



 Always keep: Zap!, Sludge Slurper, Voltaic Burst, Surging Tempest, Spirit of the Frog

Sometimes Keep: Earthen Might (if you have a turn 1 minion), Thunderhead (if going second against aggro decks)



Electra Stormsurge -> Unbound Elemental

Vessina -> Bloodlust
