[Archived] S8 Hearthstone Mid Budget Mage Antonidas Aggro Deck

23 posts in this topic

I had build an Antonidas deck using the previous mid-cost mage deck that was here as a template. My current mage deck looks like this: 

 

Mage
2x Mirror Image
2x Arcane Missiles
2x Ice Lance
2x Frostbolt
2x Sorcerer's Apprentice
2x Arcane Intellect
2x Ice Barrier
2x Ice Block
2x Water Elemental
2x Blizzard
2x Pyroblast 
1x Archmage Antonidas
 
Neutral
2x Loot Hoarder 
2x Novice Engineer
2x Azure Drake
1x Gadgetzan Auctioneer 
 
What are your thoughts? And if i wanted to build the one you have posted here using the cards I have available to me currently which replaces would you recommend as i seem to be short about 3-4 cards one of them being legendary.

What is the reasoning behind including counterspell in this deck? It seems to me hit-and-miss at best, and I don't think it's worth two slots. I would use two ice barriers if I were throwing in secrets. Please explain the reasoning here. :)

Ice Barriers can be great when playing against aggressive decks as they will help you get past the early stages of the match, however Counterspell will have much greater impact on the match in late stages. 

Also... there is nothing more annoying for your opponent than playing Anotnidas + Counterspell.

Hi, Poyo.

 

Looks like a great deck as the combinations seems to work well. I found this deck since i got one antonidas and want to find any deck building around him. I'm very new to this game, so couple of questions want to ask.

 

1. What would be the best starting card in your opinion (Like mirror image, frost bolt)?

 

2. When i collect the secret card, should i put it onto board as long as i have additional crystal or should i keep it to protect antonidas? 

 

3. Can you give a simple strategy when battling with any other classes, especially fast decks?

 

Thanks a lot~

 

Fay

Hey guys. Long time reader I'm new to hearthstone was wondering if you guys had any tips for grinding out dust I guess to create a legendary. 11000 plus dust seems like it would take months to gather. Any advice for the newbie trying to build a Mage deck. Love mages.

same here.

I'd like to make a suggestion :D

Take out Nat Pagle, 2x Counterspell, 1x Archmage and replace them with 2x Sunfury Protector and 2x Defender of Argus. It will make the deck a bit more mid-range aggressive. The deck works, however getting Archmage to roll is often hard and I know that some players may destroy their game trying to force an Archmage kill.

I've won plenty with this deck. It's not the best deck, of course, but it's very fun to play! The best is when you have double sorc apprentice and Archmage on the board. 3-5 fireballs in 1 turn always feels good. I didn't have nat pagle so I used a sunfury to help with cheesy decks. Replaced one Azure with a Gadgetzan, and the second counterspell with a blizzard.

Hi Poyo,

Hi all,

 

My first contribution to this forum is:

 

Tauren Warrior or Ragen Worgen, for a 3 mana replace of Harvest Golem ?

 

I like the idea of activating the enrage of either with Fireblast, but do you feel that is truly viable? Do any even survive one round to be able to pull that off?

 

For this deck, since it's an agressive deck, I would think the Worgen would be a better fit. 

 

But can you think of other good cards to trade for Harvest Golem for the noobs like me that haven't got one yet in a booster? :)

Hey, WurmD!

I know Enrage minions might be appealing, but you need to consider the impact they will have on the board. Tauren Warrior is absolutely horrible and you should not consider it in any constructed deck - it is simply too expensive and Amani Berserker will always make a much better alternative - it would, however, make your deck heavy on 2 mana drops.

Raging Worgen could work, however you need to understand that it will get taken out by a single spell and you will rarely get to enrage it. Check the new deck list, you might like it a lot with Kirin Tor Mage, can be a really nasty play :)

This deck seriously need some tweaking. I can only reach rank 17-16 with this deck -.- last season i reached rank 10 with a bit weaker deck

Agreed with above poster. Got to rank 14 with my own, bad aggro deck (mage) that is minion heavy. Drew the Archmage and started using this, but I just keep losing almost every game. It feels like this deck loses to nearly all aggro decks (who have far more minions), as well as any shaman control deck.

Nearly all my few victories have been against players who have had weak early or if I had miraculously good early with perfect starting hand and draws. I don't know if it's me doing something really wrong or if thr deck isn't working as intended.

This deck got me down to about rank 14...  then promptly kicked back up to 18 or so, because not everyone is retarded. It's just not an aggro deck with the Secrets and Archmage synergy. Trying to roll a Counterspell with an Archmage, and hoping for an Antonidas by turn 7?

      The new meta is still forming, but even at this early stage it seems that Kazakus will be a large part of it. This article shows all of the available potions, and explains how the ordering of the spells when cast is likely to change.
      The first trick to remembering all of the options is to realise that  in the potion creation stage, nearly all of the choices are fundamentally the same no matter whether the spell costs 1, 5, or 10 mana. The cost of the spell simply powers up the effect. There are ten different effects to choose from, which are outlined below. The spells are remembered more easily when you group the effects by numbers.
      1, 2, 3 effects:
      Icecap: Freezes 1, 2, or 3 enemy minions.
      Ichor of Undeath: Summons 1, 2, or 3 friendly minions that died this game.
      Kingsblood: Draws 1, 2, or 3 cards.
      Shadow Oil: Adds 1, 2, or 3 random Demons to your hand.

      Other effects in number order:
      Felbloom: Deals 2, 4, or 6 damage to all minions. 
      Goldthorn: Gives your minions 2, 4, or 6 extra health. 
      Netherbloom: Summons a 2/2, 5/5, or 8/8 demon.
      Heart of Fire: Deals 3, 5, or 8 damage.
      Stonescale Oil: Gives 4, 7, or 10 Armor.
      Mystic Wool: This card is unique in that it has no effect for 1 mana. It either turns a random enemy minion into a 1/1 Sheep, or all enemy minions into 1/1 Sheep.

      At the moment, many of the pairings work according to the game engine, rather than in the best order, which means that Kazakus is not working as intended. An example of this would be minions that are getting killed by damage are then getting frozen before leaving play. This is correct in terms of how the game works, as deaths are always processed last, but the spells are going to be made to work outside of the regular game engine. This will make them more powerful and intuitive.

      We are already working on this. Feel free to post stuff like this on our bug forums. (source) This reply on Reddit confirms that the idea of the custom Spell is that it will resolve in an order beneficial to the caster, and that it will likely be changed very soon.
