I must say, this build works extremely well, even without the epic/legendary cards. I'm on a 7 in-a-row winning streak in ranked and never had a "sweat" situation. It cost me 700~ dust to get all the core cards and I don't regret it.

 

Thanks for sharing this build

I'm only 5 core cards off the full build, those being Azure, Sky Pilot and Leotheb(sp?), but I replaced those with Sneeds, Ragnaros and Onyxia. Haven't had a problem yet.

 

Thanks so much!

This deck is pretty bad, Flamestrike or Blizzard are MUST HAVE for Mage nowadays.

No one plays Flamestrike or Blizzard in Mech Mage at a high level, those are Control cards, this an Aggro deck, or an aggressively curved Midrange deck if you prefer.

Is card draw a problem?

Well, it is an aggro deck, so you should kill your opponent under X turns. Otherwise, due to your cards being so cheap and synergy dependent, you are going to run out of steam. But, there is a reason why so many people run(/ran) this deck :)

I've been using this deck for the past couple of days, I had to craft a lot of cards.

 

I'm still lacking the dust to craft the Piloted Sky Golems. I've been using a Sunwalker and Force-Tank MAX as replacements.

 

My win rate went up exponentially while using this deck. I was barely able to get past Rank 19 before. I've managed to get to Rank 14 today using the deck without the Sky Golems. When I lose the opponent usually has 1-5 HP left, so it's pretty obvious that I'm lacking the final blow in late game.

 

I am still grinding to get the necessary dust to craft the Piloted Sky Golems.

 

I just wanted to thank the OP for sharing this amazing deck with us!

 

What's the next step after I get those Golems? :P

Any technique to using it against decks with mass minions?

 

I had hard time facing those using violet mage.

Does the total dust cost take into account that you get Loatheb in the Naxxramas storyline?

Well, you don't need dust to cast Loatheb, so why would it be taken into account?

Hello there,

I have the complete deck and find it questionable whether it will do the work after rank 10 at all (I am 12 rank atm).

You could still beat opponents with legendary decks if your cards draw in perfect order and your opponents' one not but those games are not even.

 

So here comes my request - would you be so kind to suggest the closest upgrades for those who got the full deck.

 

Thank you in advance.

Im pretty new to hs (started playing when it came out for phones) and I was wondering if mimiron's head would be a viable replacement for one of the sky pilots?

Holy cow, this deck has kicked much booty for me over the last three days!  It has been completely unstoppable in Casual reeling off win after win, and I have soared from 19 to 15 in Ranked play with only one loss (bad draw).  I didn't have the full deck but even my substitutions seem to be working:

 

Acidic Swamp Oozes instead of Snowchuggers (better weapon control)

Demolisher instead of Harvest Golem (more aggro and serves as a soft taunt)

1 Arcane Nullifier for 1 Mechanical Yeti (helps to have another taunter)

Antique Healbot instead of Loatheb ( has allowed me to outlast opponents)

Windfury Harpies instead of Sky Golems (works really well with Finicky Cloakfield)

 

I had to craft the Goblin Blastmages, but no regrets.  It is a monster on turn four, and especially on turn three with the coin.  Some opponents will simply concede once their board has been cleared by his effect, he's that intimidating.

 

The real key to winning seems to be the mulligan.  Getting low cost cards that can be cast quickly is key to taking control of the board.  Using those cheap minions and the Mage's hero power to clear the board every turn is all it takes to allow a heavy hitter like Yeti, Blastmage or Harpy to finish your opponent.

This deck also seems quite effective against Face Hunter.  An early rush powered by Mechwarper fights fire with fire, and an Antique Healbot seems to be an effective counter to the Hunter's hero power.  Time Rewinder can also be useful in getting the battlecry of the Healbot or Blastmage off more than once in the match.

I don't see how this deck is a 3-5 rank deck.  Its so heavily reliant on your 1 and 2 drops that if you get none you basically are toast before you start.

I started using the deck and my rank instantly got higher.
I have a questoion about Piloted Sky Golems. Is there any suggestions to use as replacements? I don't have those cards and any other good epics/legendaries. Currently I took one more Harvest Golem and also a Sludge Belcher as replacement for those.

 

I haven't lost much yet, I am just wondering, which would be the best replacement for those.

 

Maybe Kel'Thuzad?

KT is suboptimal, but might be ok. Sky Golem is already in this deck as a budget replacement for the Legendary minions, so downgrading it even further is quite weak, but if you need to make do for the time being, KT is reasonable.

Is Jeeves good in this?  To recoup cards lost.

Jeeves can be ok, it pushes the deck in a more all-in aggressive direction, but that's not necessarily wrong.

      The Europe Spring Playoffs and Championship took place over the weekend of May 20-21, which decided not only the new Europe Champion, but also the four players who would represent Europe at the Global Spring Championship in Shanghai next month.
      After seven rounds of Swiss, the top eight players cut to a knockout phase. The results of which were as follows:
        Hoej beat   FibEli3
        Neirea beat   INER
        Rdu beat   Casie
        Kolento beat   StanCifka
      This means that Hoej, Neirea, Rdu, and Kolento will represent Europe in the Global Championship. The top eight being so strong is a sign that the metagame is in a healthy place. All of the players were already known to be among the best in Europe, and despite their lineups differing substantially, they were still able to make it through.
      Hoej went on to take the title, beating Kolento 3-0 in the final. Hoej has been touted as one of the best players in Europe for some time, but traditionally has brought Control decks to major events. This time around, he brought a very aggressive lineup, and was rewarded for his willingness to adapt his style to the meta.
      The deck archetypes that each player brought to the event are listed below:
      Hoej: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
      Kolento: Jade Druid, Midrange Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Neirea: Jade Druid, Discover Mage, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Rdu: Aggro Druid, Face Hunter, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      The next four players to qualify for the Global Championship will be decided next week, with the Americas Spring Championships.

      The Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) European Spring Playoffs will take place this weekend, 20-21 May 2017.
      This will be the first playoff event since Journey to Un'Goro was released, and so if anyone has saved any surprise deck tech, this is the event where it will be revealed.
      The top 64 point earners, and ties, from the EU server will be joined by 8 Tavern Hero tournament qualifiers for the event, which will be played in esports bars across Europe. If you want to attend one of the events to cheer on your local favourite, the list of locations can be found here. There will be side events for anyone wishing to attend, with Blizzard prizes available for winners, and the Power Core cardback for all attendees.
      The point standings, showing the top 64, can be found here. As usual the event is stacked with many of the big names from the region. The top four will advance to the HCT Spring Global finals next month.

      Fight Promoter is promoting Hearthstone by giving itself away! Ok, that didn't make sense, but the point is everyone gets a fee card for just logging in this Saturday!
      Blizzard (source)
      Yeah, we can get you a card. Really! Log in to Hearthstone on Saturday, May 20, to get a Fight Promoter card for free!

      No catch, just a free card--so don’t miss out.
      We’ll see you in the tavern!

      Who are we?
      Volatile are a group of mostly ex-mythic raiders, looking to get back into mythic raiding. We cleared through Nighthold heroic a number of months ago and need some more people in order to jump into mythic. Besides raiding our friendly bunch of members enjoy running mythic+ on daily basis, helping out with world quests among other things. Our discord is usually filled with members for daily banter and weekly fun. If you enjoy all that, you most certainly will enjoy your stay in Volatile.
      Who are we looking for?
      We're primarily looking for ranged DPS to fill out the roster. At this time we are full on tanks and healers.
      Tanks - Closed
      Healers - Closed
      Ranged DPS - MM Hunter, Warlock and Shadow Priest but all classes will be considered
      Melee DPS - Closed
      Overall we're looking for people with a good knowledge of their class/spec who know how to improve their gameplay. Being fairly thick skinned and being able to accept constructive criticism, as well as the occasional jab from some of our more 'outspoken' members, is a big plus too.
      When do we raid?
      We raid two times a week as standard, we often have an additional raid day if necessary. See raid times below. 
      Thursday: 8pm - 11pm (Server time)
      Monday: 8pm - 11pm (Server time)
      Tuesday: 8pm - 11pm (Additional day)
      Application process:
      We believe the best way to get to know if someone is right for the guild is just to have a chat, rather than go through a long application process. So we'll have a chat, look at logs and possibly run some M+ to get to know each other. If you're interested in joining our mythic raid team, contact any of the following:
      Contact us:
      GM: 
      Xadel#2609, Xadel (ingame)
      Council: 
      Òops#2597, Drainphase (ingame)
