Totem Shaman is a aggro Shaman deck type. The deck utilizes totems and totem synergy cards and cheap totem buffing and copying cards to dominate the early game board, with EVIL Totem and Mana Tide Totem reloading cards to maintain momentum. It also includes some Overload cards to push out more aggression early. Its win condition is similar to Token Shaman, using board-wide Attack buffs like Bloodlust and Vessina as a finisher.
Totem Shaman first saw play as a variant of Even Shaman in Wild, which were enabled by the addition of Totemic Surge and Splitting Axe from Saviors of Uldum. Totem Shaman appeared in Standard with the addition of Totemic Reflection from Ashes of Outland.
