I have been playing this deck the whole night and i am having a blast, but a thought went into my mind. Would it be retarded to put Malygos in this deck because i feel like it could help having a bit more late game pressure if you haven't killed your opponent by the time and since it is so heavy on spells and i don't have the flamewaker's and neither do i have the Thalnos

I do not think it will work.

Looking at the spells the deck has, in order to use them with Malygos you either expect him to stick to the board for at least one turn, or have discounted spells with Emperor Thaurissan. The first one has a really small chance to happen, and the second one requires you to remove a second card in order to fit emperor in the deck. Then you are starting to loose the tempo based strategy of the deck and you are slowly transforming it into a spell damage combo mage.

In order for a Malygos to work in a spell damage mage deck, you need spells like Ice Lance. So all in all i think what you are looking for is the Reno Freeze Mage deck with Malygos in it :).

It's a decent swap. This deck is rather lacking in big minions, Medivh can help getting a couple extra threats on the board while you burn your opponent down.

Alternatively, if you often manage to have big hands just waiting to get played, you can try Emperor Thaurissan and get more bang for your mana.

Just to add to what Keiz has said, people are also very unlikely to hold Harrison/Ooze when playing vs. a Mage. You're very unlikely to be running Medivh, so they'll probably burn their weapon removal before you play him.

Anything to replace Arcane Blasts with? Not just here, but in general, everytime I look at a tempo mage deck here, I'm like 'Let me guess, there is an Arcane Blast in the deck, which I don't have'. Card is good probably, but I don't want to craft it.

Since this deck revolves around even cheaper spells and has more aggressive approach, Arcane Blast are hard to replace. You probably should play regular tempo and play second Spellslinger and Bloodmage Thalnos.
