[Archived] S20 Hearthstone Low Budget Mage Mech Aggro GvG

46 posts in this topic

I must say, this build works extremely well, even without the epic/legendary cards. I'm on a 7 in-a-row winning streak in ranked and never had a "sweat" situation. It cost me 700~ dust to get all the core cards and I don't regret it.

 

Thanks for sharing this build

I'm only 5 core cards off the full build, those being Azure, Sky Pilot and Leotheb(sp?), but I replaced those with Sneeds, Ragnaros and Onyxia. Haven't had a problem yet.

 

Thanks so much!

This deck is pretty bad, Flamestrike or Blizzard are MUST HAVE for Mage nowadays.

No one plays Flamestrike or Blizzard in Mech Mage at a high level, those are Control cards, this an Aggro deck, or an aggressively curved Midrange deck if you prefer.

Is card draw a problem?

Well, it is an aggro deck, so you should kill your opponent under X turns. Otherwise, due to your cards being so cheap and synergy dependent, you are going to run out of steam. But, there is a reason why so many people run(/ran) this deck :)

I've been using this deck for the past couple of days, I had to craft a lot of cards.

 

I'm still lacking the dust to craft the Piloted Sky Golems. I've been using a Sunwalker and Force-Tank MAX as replacements.

 

My win rate went up exponentially while using this deck. I was barely able to get past Rank 19 before. I've managed to get to Rank 14 today using the deck without the Sky Golems. When I lose the opponent usually has 1-5 HP left, so it's pretty obvious that I'm lacking the final blow in late game.

 

I am still grinding to get the necessary dust to craft the Piloted Sky Golems.

 

I just wanted to thank the OP for sharing this amazing deck with us!

 

What's the next step after I get those Golems? :P

Any technique to using it against decks with mass minions?

 

I had hard time facing those using violet mage.

Does the total dust cost take into account that you get Loatheb in the Naxxramas storyline?

Well, you don't need dust to cast Loatheb, so why would it be taken into account?

Hello there,

I have the complete deck and find it questionable whether it will do the work after rank 10 at all (I am 12 rank atm).

You could still beat opponents with legendary decks if your cards draw in perfect order and your opponents' one not but those games are not even.

 

So here comes my request - would you be so kind to suggest the closest upgrades for those who got the full deck.

 

Thank you in advance.

Im pretty new to hs (started playing when it came out for phones) and I was wondering if mimiron's head would be a viable replacement for one of the sky pilots?

Holy cow, this deck has kicked much booty for me over the last three days!  It has been completely unstoppable in Casual reeling off win after win, and I have soared from 19 to 15 in Ranked play with only one loss (bad draw).  I didn't have the full deck but even my substitutions seem to be working:

 

Acidic Swamp Oozes instead of Snowchuggers (better weapon control)

Demolisher instead of Harvest Golem (more aggro and serves as a soft taunt)

1 Arcane Nullifier for 1 Mechanical Yeti (helps to have another taunter)

Antique Healbot instead of Loatheb ( has allowed me to outlast opponents)

Windfury Harpies instead of Sky Golems (works really well with Finicky Cloakfield)

 

I had to craft the Goblin Blastmages, but no regrets.  It is a monster on turn four, and especially on turn three with the coin.  Some opponents will simply concede once their board has been cleared by his effect, he's that intimidating.

 

The real key to winning seems to be the mulligan.  Getting low cost cards that can be cast quickly is key to taking control of the board.  Using those cheap minions and the Mage's hero power to clear the board every turn is all it takes to allow a heavy hitter like Yeti, Blastmage or Harpy to finish your opponent.

This deck also seems quite effective against Face Hunter.  An early rush powered by Mechwarper fights fire with fire, and an Antique Healbot seems to be an effective counter to the Hunter's hero power.  Time Rewinder can also be useful in getting the battlecry of the Healbot or Blastmage off more than once in the match.

I don't see how this deck is a 3-5 rank deck.  Its so heavily reliant on your 1 and 2 drops that if you get none you basically are toast before you start.

I started using the deck and my rank instantly got higher.
I have a questoion about Piloted Sky Golems. Is there any suggestions to use as replacements? I don't have those cards and any other good epics/legendaries. Currently I took one more Harvest Golem and also a Sludge Belcher as replacement for those.

 

I haven't lost much yet, I am just wondering, which would be the best replacement for those.

 

Maybe Kel'Thuzad?

KT is suboptimal, but might be ok. Sky Golem is already in this deck as a budget replacement for the Legendary minions, so downgrading it even further is quite weak, but if you need to make do for the time being, KT is reasonable.

Is Jeeves good in this?  To recoup cards lost.

Jeeves can be ok, it pushes the deck in a more all-in aggressive direction, but that's not necessarily wrong.

Havent bought and played naxxramas adventure yet. Any possible replacements for loatheb in that case? Cards that could be bought with dust, since i havent played blackrock adventure missions either.
