[Archived] S20 Hearthstone Low Budget Mage Mech Aggro GvG

46 posts in this topic

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 next expansion will be Journey to Un'goro. 
      Blizzard have released a short video revealing that, as speculated, the next expansion will be Journey to Un'goro. Four cards from the next set were shown in the reveal video.
      The expansion will be released in early April, and will contain 135 cards. It is set in Un'Goro, an area filled with dinosaurs, with a volcano at the heart of the region. The launch of the set will trigger the start of The Year of the Mammoth.

      Volcano, adding to the flavour of the set, was the first card to be revealed. It is similar to Elemental Destruction, but not as reliable. While on the subject of Elementals, the word Elemental is going to be used as a tribal name. Many cards will be tagged as Elemental, which presumably will allow for cards that interact with them to be printed, along the same lines as Beast has currently.

      The image above only tells half of the story. After Pyros dies as a 6/6, it returns back to hand yet again as a 10/10 that costs 10! This mechanic might imply that there is a focus on value as opposed to tempo, although of course one card is a meaningless sample size! There could also be a Quest to play a certain number of Elemental cards in a game, although it seems unlikely that it would be a Mage Quest.

      Adapt is a new keyword, along the lines of discover. There are ten different powers to choose from. Taunt, Windfury, Divine Shield, Cannot be targeted, +3 Attack, Deathrattle: Summon two 1/1 Plants are the six shown in the video. We've also been warned that plants are not just plants, so we can only speculate on what a 1/1 Plant might do.

      One of the more interesting features of the new expansion is the Quest mechanic. Quests start in your opening hand and have a big reward for completion. It is displayed in the same place as Secrets, however both players can see the Quest, and how close it is to being completed.

      As you can see, the rewards are very powerful
      More reveals will be made on March 17th. Until then, we will just have to speculate as to what else lies in Un'Goro.

      Iksar has confirmed that the Matchmaking in Legend Ranks has been changed.
      As stated in our previous article, Legendary players have been noticing that in the last few days that they have been matched with players much closer to their own rank than usual. There was some confusion regarding this, as Iksar had not been made aware of the changes, but he has now confirmed that there are definitely changes in place.
      It is hard to precisely evaluate community feeling on the the new system, especially as I personally think they're a step in the right direction, but there are some players who are not keen on the changes. RayC and Xzirez have been the two highest profile players so far to disagree with the change. The issues that people against it have can be summarised as follows: Counter-Queuing: Many top Legends do not like counter-queuing, which is where you change your deck to try to counter your opponent. With the new system meaning you can often play the same person several times in a row, counter-queuing will become an important part of the game.
      Early Legend Advantage: People opposed to the changes claim that it overly favours the players who reach Legend early on. The older system made it easier to catch up at the end of the season.
      Win Trading: Due to the increased chance of playing against the same opponent, it is now easier to cover your tracks if you lose to a friend many times in a row to boost their ranking.
      There does seem to be a majority of players who support the new system however. The ladder system has been a cause of much debate for a long time now, and these changes, alongside the recent addition of ladder floors, seem to show that at the very least, ladder is currently a high priority for Blizzard to get right.
