    I'm afraid the in-game macros do not offer that sort of functionality.

    Hunters, Just get a Sporebat, most LFRs will be missing that buff.

    I am assuming you mean Shield Slam and Revenge for that pairing.

    Either way, Blizzard does not allow an addon/macro to make a decision for you. That's why this won't work.

    The ! in a macro is to prevent toggling. For instance, your auto-attack. Many warrior abilities used to not start your auto-attack if you didn't have enough rage to actually use the ability. So if you wanted to macro auto-attack to start generating rage when you were fighting, pressing the ability repeated would turn auto-attack off and on constantly. Using the ! means to turn it on and if it is already on, leave it on. This doesn't work for most things to auto-cast. I believe it was only Auto-attack and the Hunter auto-shot, maybe Wand(which wand may not exist anymore, not sure).

    Edit: Also, not sure that you would want a cleave macro or heroic strike macro at all any more. Rage is a little hard to come by and shield block and shield barrier are a significant part of your damage reduction. If you are using cleave/heroic strike, the odds are you are making your healer have a heart attack.

    Code:
    /cast [@focus,exists,harm,nodead] [exists,harm,nodead] Heroic Throw
    /cast Charge
    This can be a good one. Set a focus just before the pull. Charge one target and heroic throw another in a single move on the pull. If there is no focus, it will hit your target.

    You could use a cast sequence that would not work worth a darn. You would not be able to react effectively to revenge procs or sword and board procs. The only other way I can think of to put them sort of on the same keybind is with a modifier. For instance:

    /cast [nomod, @target] Shield Slam
    /cast [mod:alt, @target] Revenge

    I haven't tested this and the syntax might have been updated for 5.0. The idea is that it casts Shield Slam if you just use the keybind or click it (hint: learn to keybind if you don't already). If you hold down alt, it will use revenge. You can change the mod:alt to a different modifier key if you prefer.

    /cast charge
    /cast heroic leap

    Single click casts both, left click fast to leap during charge for great starting aggro + rage.
