Beat this Tempo Mage Deck

3 posts in this topic

I'm constantly fighting the deck in the picture. It's a Tempo Mage GVG a bit modified from this deck.

Here it is:


I'm constantly losing to this deck and I'd love some hints on how to beat it.

It will have to have cards to disrupt the strategy of tempo mages.

Zombie Chow can be pretty strong against Tempo mages and since your opponent does not run any Arcane Missiles or Arcane Blasts, Zombie Chow is even a better choice.

Kezan Mystic is a strong inclusion against Tempo Mages (the ones with secrets, of course).

Cabal Shadow Priests is a reasonable card as well, but only if you wish to play priest against this class.

Because your opponent runs Kezan, you might not want to play a class with secrets.

Sludge Belcher makes Face Hunter a bad choice, even though he is usually favoured.

Two Flamestrikes mean no flood decks, such as Zoo.

Because the deck runs 2 7+ attack minions, BGH is a strong card.

To counter Pyroblast, you need to run heals or Counterspell. Since your opponent has Kezan, heals are better.


Now, it seems that Control priest, Demon handlock, Renolock or Midrange Pally are the best choices out there. I would personally choose Control priest. Keep your Museum curators in hand to trigger Mirror Entity, try not to waste Circles (so you can trigger Counterspell). Run 2 Cabals (in place of one Lightbomb), 1 Kezan (in place of Deathlord) and try not to overextend.

      Hey everyone, mediocre deck builder here. I love experimenting with new decks and wanted to try a new totem shaman deck after Blizzard´s patch reworking shaman/aggro cards.
      Note: This deck is made for AFTER Blizzard´s next patch.
      2x Totemic Might
      1x Evolve
      2x Lightning Bolt
      2x Primal Fusion
      2x Spirit Claws
      2x Flametongue Totem
      2x Totem Golem
      2x Hex
      2x Tuskarr Totemic
      2x Mana Tide Totem
      2x Thunder Bluff Valiant
      1x Bloodlust
      2x Thing from Below
      2x Master of Evolution
      2x Azure Drake
      2x Fire Elemental
      If you hadn´t noticed already, its a very cheap deck to make because of the lack of epic and legendary minions.
      Flood the board with totems early game and control the board with Totem Golem, Spirit Claws, Lightning Bolt, etc.
      Try to buff at least 2 or more totems with Totemic Might Early game to give the totems more survivability. 
      Bloodlust Can get you the early win if you have enough totems on the board.
      Evolve Is a good card for having lots of smallish minions on the board and can sometimes give you a charger to close the game.
      Azure Drake Combines well with Spirit Claws and draws a card. (Who doesn´t love some good card draw?)
      Master of Evolution A master of evolution. Need I say more? Yea, probably. He curves perfectly with Tuskarr Totemic and can turn that 3/2 body into a 4/5 minion or something more useful. What could possibly go wrong?
      Final Additions
      This the first deck I´ve tried to explain on a website, and I´m not too great at building decks so if you have any questions or thoughts put them in the comments so I can reply and add them to the explanation.

      Hey guys, Sottle here. In case you don't know who I am, I am the new person in charge of Icy Veins Hearthstone content, and responsible for all the new deck guides since a little while before GvG.
      I thought it would be nice to have a thread where people can post decks they were working on, or looking for advice on, and i'll take a look at them, suggest possible improvements, and hopefully help you to tear up the ladder.
      To help us out, please try and stick to the following format as much as possible.
      -Deck Image, or Decklist
      -Available Cards (just a general idea is fine, "I have most Rares", "Good Vanilla Set, but few GvG cards" etc.
      - Amount of adventure wings.
      - Your current rank on ladder.
      Go ahead and get posting
      positiv's edit: If you want a 0 dust change (ie. using only the cards you own), you can give me link to your collection uploaded through Innkeeper. Your collection gets uploaded to Hearthpwn, you can find the link somewhere on the site. 
      Also, it would be nice if you wrote the amount of available dust.

      So I don't own Naxxramas, but I do own most cards required for Control Priest. I also don't own Justicar. What cards would you replace Deathlord and Zombie Chow with?
