Shaman's Basic Deck too weak?

Once you get Flametongue and Bloodlust, you can absolutely light up the board - while fighting the AI, I easily did 22 damage, in ADDITION to taking out a Taunter. I recommend adding in a few low-cost taunters so that you can have time to build your totems and buff the everliving crap out of them.
dont rely to much on them, youll have games where you lose boardcontrol and will never get it back
Also, it says I have gotten all of these new cards, but the basic deck never seems to pull any of them. I've yet to pull a Bloodlust or a Flametongue totem.
And the shaman class as a whole feels weak to me, outside of managing to deal 25 damage in one turn if you play your cards right, but I haven't gotten enough cards to judge fully. Although if blizzard wants to balance the deck around the insane windfury+bloodlust combos, I'm not sure Thrall will end up very pleasant to play, and will probably be very gimmicky.
I made a custom deck just to try and get through. I may as well have not been a shaman, I had so few class cards. Now that I've gotten the basic cards, I won't be back to shaman until I win some more packs.

Quoted for truth. Lightning storm is a must have, since it's basically the only board remover we have.
All I know is I'm really put off playing a shaman after this, I might have to try and create a custom deck and rely on the neutral cards seeing as how I only have a couple of shaman cards
