Hello,

 

What would be a good replacement for Thaurissan? I'm trying Cairne but doesn't seem to work very well. Antonidas would be extremely bad? Do you have any other suggestion or Thaurissan is a must?

 

Ty!

I'm playing this deck and it works honestly well. However, it relies heavily on sunfire and it if it's not drawn on time the situation gets extremely hard. What could be taken out in order to add one extra sunfire?

It doesn't rely on Sunfury at all, you have multiple options to protect yourself when you activate you big Giants turn. Frost Nova, Ice Block etc.

You can cut one Sheep if you really want a second Sunfury

Is it possible to play this deck without alexstraza?

It is, but I guess it will cost you a game here and there. I have been climbing the ladder only with this deck this season. I found that Alexstrasza is really useful against Face Hunter or Zoo, if you manage to stall the game until Turn 9. I have used it to lower the health of my opponent to get them into kill range, but this deck is so strong in the late game, that in this case Alexstrasza becomes more of a winmore card.

So, I would advise replacing it with a card that helps against Aggro deck, like a second Polymorph for the occasional annoying minion (think Savannah Highmane or Doomguard), Blizzard (so you can follow up a turn 5 Frost Nova + Doomsayer that saw Doomsayer get killed or silenced, without having to wait for Turn 7 Flamestrike), or an additional early taunt, like maybe Annoy-o-Tron or Undead Ghoul. How's that for an explanation, Sottle?

I would love to try this deck out. BUT I don't have Sylvannas, and I have only 1 iceblock.. I have enough dust to make an iceblock, but what can I use in place of sylvannas?

A deck cant be a Giants mage, if it doesnt have all 8 Giants, like wtf

 

same as a deck cant be mono-red if it isnt MONO-RED

The title stands for the fact, that this is a variation of the old-school freeze mage deck, with the inclusion of giants.

Does Dragon Paladin play every Dragon?

Does Mech Mage play every Mech?

What on Earth are you talking about?

Blizzard, Acolyte of Pain, Ice Barrier, lot of potentially good cards that you can squeeze in. Even a single Frostbolt or Fireball can come in handy.

If I thought it was better, I would have included it in the guide.

Hello, I'm fairly new to the game. I would like to know if blizzard would be a good addition to this deck? And if not, could you give me some examples of why it shouldn't be played?

It's not a matter of it being a bad card in the deck, it's just that you're limited to 30 cards. If you were to include Blizzard, something would have to get cut, and every card in the deck plays a pretty important role at the moment.

What about Antonidas? Seems he'd be useful due to lack of fireballs? Anyway, gonna try the deck out and see how I fair

The deck doesn't rely on burn, or have many cheap spells to combo with Antonidas in the same turn, so it's a pretty weak inclusion.

This deck is awesome, started playing HS at the end of July and I am rank 10 with this deck. What I like about it is that it is end game focused and has the necessary means to deal with all the insane legendaries with poly and bgh. 

 

Really satisfying gameplay, thanks Sottle. Can you recomend a Frost Giant deck for TGT? I feel like moltens maybe too slow in the meta come TGT. Pinging will become a big gameplay mechanic and the minions involved. Thanks.

I'm not into theorycraft, TGT decks will come when i've had time to playtest.

I've been playing this deck for a few weeks now, and it wrecks just about everything I've encountered.  I love it!

 

What do you think about the inclusion of Kel'Thuzad?  Windrunner is a great minion, but I'm feeling like Kel'ty would be a better match for keeping a couple giants or sticky creeps on the board until I can finish off my opponent.  Similarly, the meta presently seems to not be full of aggro decks to use both Explosive Sheeps on, so I don't think I would miss one if I swapped it.

I think Sylvanas is significantly better than KT in this deck, so I wouldn't make that direct substitution, if you feel comfortable cutting an anti-aggro card for more late-game though, you can definitely try that and see how it goes.
