    Weird suggestions... Most of the cards are grossly underpowered, some are overpowered. Pressure Plate is a copy of Death Trap. Beast Form could be too powerful. Sinister Ritual is plain OP. Deal damage to their hero, AND destroy one of their allies? Just for 4 cc? Zombify is UP and so is the first hero. You need to think through your suggestions again.

    Sinister Ritual makes you sacrify your OWN ally. But you're right... I wasn't very original with abilities. I was focused more on how the class would play as a whole. I'll think up some more original content ^.^

    Really? It said target ally, which I thought included your opponent's ally. But with that, it's become UP. Bit of a dilemma... But nice work. How do you keep on making these classes up?

    I think as a class and as an idea it is great!

    I would like Shamans to deal more with spirits.
    Like an ability that removes an ally from graveyard to place in game a protector with 0 attack and health equal to the removed ally's health. Or an ability that allows you to discard an ally from hand to give 1-2 damage reduction to allies you control. Or a class ally that becomes a shaman armor when it dies (1 defense, 2 durability).
    Giving them too much healing would interfere with the priests, unless you plan to make them a shadow class.

    You know it's funny, when you wrote the word UP previously I thought he meant "up" as in already-posted in the forums (and hence unoriginal), not underpowered xD

    With most shadow allies having 4 HP or more, I wouldn't say Sinister Ritual is particularly underpowered. Zombify keeps them healthy too.

    And as far as how I keep making classes up… sometimes I just say "OK. By the time I'm done taking this bath, I'll have laid the groundwork for the ____ class." I take LONG baths :P
