Yesterday saw the reveal of two Mage cards, Servant of Yogg-Saron and Faceless Summoner. There have now been sixty three cards revealed. Blizzard have announced a live stream on April 21, and it seems likely we will get a mass reveal on that date.

Faceless Summoner is an efficient way to put a lot of stats on the board. Although the summoned card will not trigger Battlecry, the Summoner still represents value in its most raw form. It seems likely that this will be a very highly picked Arena card, especially with it being common, and will see testing in Aggro and Value Mage Standard decks.

Servant of Yogg-Saron is another Mage card with a random effect. For it to be of value, the Battlecry will need to be worth about 1 mana. Although the randomness will be a net positive due to cards that don't target, such as Animal Companion and Force of Nature, it will likely not be consistent enough to see constructed play even if it covers the 1 mana of value.

Deathwing - Dragonlord and Embrace the Shadow Here.
Thistle Tea and Twilight Summoner Here.
Wisps of the Old Gods and Soggoth the Slitherer Here.

inb4 Servant of Yogg-Saron on turn ten, Astral Communion. By the way, using FoN as an example is maybe not good because FoN costs 6, which is more than the cost limit.

Faceless summoner looks like a bit stronger Sky Golem. I believe it will see play in budget decks in constructed as well as in arena. Maybe if Blizz nerfs Doomsayer to 3 mana, things will get interesting.

Why would they nerf doomsayer?

Because Freeze mage loses basically no cards with standard mode. There are multiple cards that can be nerfed to make freeze mage weaker and one of them is Doomsayer. Nerfing Doomsayer by one mana wouldn't ruin the deck, but would weaken it enough to make space for other decks, in my opinion.

      We have a new Tavern Brawl this week! Its name is Spellbook Duel.
      For this Brawl, you choose your class and then you pick 10 different cards to fill your deck. Instead of drawing cards each turn, you Discover a copy of a card from your deck. If you use card drawing mechanics, like Arcane Intellect, you don't actually draw from your deck. You will, in fact, get a 1-mana spell called Peruse, which again allows you to Discover a copy of a card from your deck.
      Obviously, there are a lot of possible deck combinations you can use to tackle this new Tavern Brawl. The first things that pop into mind are anything that contains Reno Jackson and Kazakus, as well as Jade Druid to extend the possibility of getting these precious Jade Idols. Once again, Mage is the clear winner of this Brawl with cards like Sorcerer's Apprentice, Arcane Intellect and Flamewaker.
      Bear in mind that some cards are not recommended, since they remove cards from your Discover pool. Examples are Fel Reaver and Tracking. Moreover, cards that put another card directly into play, like Mysterious Challenger and Mad Scientist, will also make your Discover pool smaller. Lastly, according to a Reddit user, Renounce Darkness won't deduct 1 mana from the cards you discover throughout the game.
      There are already a lot of disgusting decks for Spellbook Duel out there. We are waiting for your suggestions and any other useful info in the comments!
