Primordial/Spell Damage Shaman?

(Sorry that this post is so big :p) Yeah, so I had been wanting to make a deck with Primordial Protector in it for a while but I don’t have the necessary dust nor cards to make the Druid deck. I decided on Shaman because I already have a good bit of Shaman cards. Not really sure if a deck like this already exists but if it does lmk. The only “big” spell I currently have for this class is Tidal Wave but the fact that this was the only big spell turned out to be a good thing, as you’ll see. I added spell damage at first to increase the value of the Tidal Wave but it turned out that spell damage was absolutely necessary and great for this deck. Okay I’ll go ahead and add the deck list:

The thing about this deck is it’s pretty slow. You pretty much have to spend your first 5-7 turns playing control and just trying not to die. But don’t worry, getting below 10 health in this time is not the end of the world because turns 6/8 usually end up being huge swing turns. On turn 6 you can play Lightning Bloom into Primordial Protector to get two big minions on the board with a guaranteed Tidal Wave on turn 8. If your hero is already pretty close to death then it’s best to play tidal wave first if you have it. If a Lightning Bloom wasn’t an available waiting until turn 8 is still an option. It’s best to play an Imprisoned Phoenix 2 turns before you plan to use Tidal to almost guarantee that you fully heal your hero depending on the number of minions on the board. To top it all off either one of these 8 cost cards can be used to corrupt one or both Strongman’s for an even bigger swing turn. The swing turn as well as overwhelming your opponent with a couple of big minions is the main win condition. I also added in Doomhammer (which works well with Stormstrike), Instructor Fireheart, and Ras Frostwhisper as possible backup plans. I am definitely considering adding Alexstraza for this same purpose, in which case I would probably get rid of a Torrent. Rn I am ranked Diamond 8 and this deck is doing fairly well. I have played 12 games and won 8 of them so far. But one thing is certain: this deck is really fun! There are so many different ways each game could go. It’s also really good at adapting to what your opponent is doing. This is the first deck I’ve played this season where a 7 8/8 carnival clowns on your opponents board is not the end of the world. A few of my opponents have even instantly conceded after my swing turn. I would definitely recommend trying out this off-meta deck as a fun way to end the season, if you already have most or all of the cards. If you don’t or you are looking to craft just one deck to climb the ladder with I would definitely recommend not crafting this deck and instead choosing a less risky, more meta deck bc I am still not completely sure if I’ve just had a few lucky games. Please let me know if there’s any cards that I’m missing or should be in this deck but that’s all for now.
