They are referring to "Shaman", not "Evolved Shaman". This is because a couple years back, they doubled the damage of Shaman's first 2 skills as well as adding a quite decent HoT for extra surviability, you can just spam the first 2 skills when doing AoE farming and you can kill a lot of things pretty quickly. This also turned it into a good class to kill bigger hp sponges.
Evolved Shaman just got left in the dust due to this change, the change affected both Elemental Embrace and Elemental Grasp, so Evo Shaman got something, but Evo Shaman is just weak in comparison to Shaman now. Evo Shaman can be used as a farming class like Shaman, but it's skill's cost more mana for less damage. In terms of soloing or just single target damage, Shaman also does better than Evo Shaman on that front. You would either use Evo Shaman as support-ish class or in PvP where you can potentially stun lock your opponent with enough good coinflips. You can easily throw Evolved Shaman away if you need the extra space.
You seem to have something for everything, LDK for solo/DPS, Shaman for farming and then some variety classes (as I like to call them), classes that aren't necessarily good, but fun to use every now and then.
Soul Cleaver, Undead Goat and Pyromancer are all bad in their own ways and Oracle is just way too slow for anything, but other than that, all your other classes range from decent to great.
As for classes you should get (in no particular order), I would say Stonecrusher (you already have Arcangrove Rank 10 at the very least, Brightoak and Mythsong are super easy to rep), Blaze Binder (rank 10 Doomwood and Embersea rep + Pyromancer), Scarlet Sorceress (a low% drop from the boss in /Towerofmirrors), Troll Spellsmith (rank 10 Troll, old but still holds up well) and Dragonslayer General, while it's not necessarily the best class, it's quite strong, ESPECIALLY on dragonkin and gets overlooked a lot, requires rank 10 Dragonslayer + farming a quest in /Dragontown for a bit.
I would also love to put Vampire lord and Glacial Berserker on the list, but they will only be available once their seasonal events return, which is Mogloween and Frostvale respectively (October and December).
Top soloing classes with high DPS:
1. Lighcaster/Void Highlord.
2. Legion Doomknight.
3. Glacial Berserker.
Top soloing classes without DPS factored in:
3. Oracle or Scarlet Sorceress.
Top AoE classes:
1. Blaze Binder.
2. Vampire Lord.
Keep in mind these lists are subjective, some people prefer some classes and may put them higher or lower depending on their own point view. In the case of AoE classes, it very subjective, preference and hp range dependent. In a soloing situation, it's more objective, some classes simply deal more damage than others, ergo, they are better.
