I made this deck with a geomancer in place of thalnos until i acquire him, but I have trouble consistently pulling it off. Could you put up some gameplay of you playing with this deck and giving some tips along the way? it would help a ton haha. When I was able to pull it off it was really fun, but other times i was just kind of helpless. Im pretty sure it has to do with the way I'm playing it, but it would be cool if we could see some gameplay smile.png

You mention a 20 damage combo in the synergy section.  This assumes you have Bloodmage Thalnos on the board already, otherwise it's only 16 damage.

I'm not so good at maths, but 6+3+3+4+4 seems to be equal to 20 to me.

Guide was missing one of the frostbolts previously...

 

As noted by the fact the hyperlink is missing on the second frostbolt:

 

Various combinations of spells can be used together for huge damage in a single turn. For example, the combo of Fireball, Frostbolt, Frostbolt, Ice Lance, Ice Lance is 20 damage.

No changes were made, the second Frostbolt was always there. Cards are only hyperlinked the first time they are mentioned in a paragraph (see Ice Lance in the same sentence), you must have just glossed over it.

I don't have the dust yet for Alexi... would Malygos be a fair replacement dragon to help finish the game in its place?

No not really, there are builds that use Malygos, but they play both Dragons. You can try and make it work with Malygos, but the deck will be weaker.

First time playing this deck I was versing a hunter and I would of died on turn 8 and 9, but ice block saved me. On turn 10 I Axelstrasza into fireball into frostbolt into icelance x 2 and the hunter went from 30hp to 0. Also i had Emperor Thaurissan up for 2 turns to make that play possible.

 

GREAT DECK!

Recommend replacing Thalnos with Malygos. Huge synergy with Thaurissan for a full additional win condition. Seems like it would imbalance the mana curve, but it really doesn't and it's completely worth it.

to anyone who hasn't tried this deck all i have to say is DO IT.

 

 

i crafted alex yesterday after finally putting enough dust together to craft it(somehow got one legendary,one epic and one golden rare off the same pack o.O) and my experience with the deck so far has been GREAT.

 

 

not only is the deck extremely effective against most things you see on ladder right now,its also extremely fun and rewarding to play.you could say i'm a sucker for the mage class(tried pretty much every single mage deck currently on icy veins),but i don't think anyone who tries it will disagree.last time i had this much fun was with fatigue mage.

 

 

seriously,thank you for posting this(i realise the deck is a bit common and that its posted in a lot of other places,but this site is where i found out about it),that's all i have to say right now.

I lack Bloodmage Thalnos, Archmage Antonidas and 1 Doomsayer, but I have around 1200 dust and Gahz'rilla (which I may want to DE). What card is most important, and do you have good substitute for the two other cards? I have Malygos as I have seen it mentioned before.

Doomsayer and Thalnos are the most important, you can play the deck without Antonidas, but it is weaker. There used to be an argument about whether or not Antonidas was even optimal in Freeze Mage, but since Emperor showed up it's definitely right.

Can i play malygos instead of pyroblast? I think malygos is good in this deck and u can get discounts with emperor and pull some crazy damage combo.

You mention a 20 damage combo in the synergy section.  This assumes you have Bloodmage Thalnos on the board already, otherwise it's only 16 damage.

If the combo is fireball+frost ball+frost ball+ice lance+ice lance then:

Without thalnos is 20 damage: 6+3+3+4+4=20

With thalnos is 25 damage: 7+4+4+5+5=25

Note: you need to get the discount from emperor thaurissan to pull this combo since the fireball is 4 mana and frost balls are 3 mana each and ice lances 1 mana, u dont have enough mana to do all this in one turn cuz the total is 12 mana.

With the emperor doscount is only 7 mana and u have 3 mana left to do something else. If u have 2 fireballs instead and thanlnos on board and the discount from thaurissan is 7+7+4+4+5+5=32 damage in one turn (of course this is a dream scenario that never happens lol)

      The update will take effect on October 18.
      Well, the balance changes were smaller than expected as only three cards were affected this time.
      As expected, Giggling Inventor was affected as it now costs 7 mana, up from 5. The team actually considered it too powerful for 6 mana, which raises the question why it was 5 mana in the first place. Anyway, it still remains an odd card if this is still relevant.

      Now, a big and unexpected change was Mana Wyrm being raised to 2 mana. The iconic Classic minion has undergone the Tunnel Trogg treatment and after 4+ years of power, it is ready to retire.

      And a Wild change to alleviate the devastating Druid combo: Aviana will now cost 10 mana. This means she can't be played at the same turn as Kun the Forgotten King and Juicy Psychmelon won't be able to draw both Kun the Forgotten King and Aviana with it.

      The update will go live on October 18th with the weekly reset. What do you guys think about the changes?

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!

      The details for this year's Hallow's End festivities have been revealed.
      As already known from update 12.2, Hallow's End will return from October 17 until October 31. During that time, upon logging in you will receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron and a free Arena ticket.
      You can use that ticket to enter the Dual Class Arena event. You will choose a Hero, then the Hero Power of another Hero and you will make a deck consisting of both Heroes' class cards and neutral cards. If you have an Arena run in progress when Hallow’s End begins on October 17, then it will be retired and you’ll receive the normal rewards for the number of wins you achieved and a free Arena ticket.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end. During the first week (October 17-22), there will be a new Tavern Brawl called Monster Smash. You will get randomly assigned one of six Monster Hunt villains with a premade deck. The other Tavern Brawl (October 24-29) is the one we saw last year as well, The Headless Horseman Rides Again!
      Lastly, the new Paladin Hero, Sir Annoy-o, will be available as a bundle along with 20 Witchwood card packs. The pricing of the bundle is still unknown.

      It’s the Headless Horseman’s favorite time of year, and he’s returning to the Hearthstone tavern from October 17 through October 31 to host another a blowout Hallow’s End celebration for everyone! If you dare to brave a tavern decked in delightfully dreary decorations, you’ll find that your horrific host has also planned some spine-tingling treats and chilling challenges!
       
      Tempting Treats
      The Headless Horseman is handing out ghoulish goodies just for logging in! Log in between October 17 and 10 p.m. PDT on October 31 to receive a free golden Witch’s Cauldron card and an Arena ticket.

       
      The Great Hallow’s End Arena Costume Party
      During Hallow’s End you can experience dual class Arena* with an added twist: Each of the nine classic Hearthstone Heroes will be attending in costume!

       
      When you start an Arena run during Hallow’s End, you’ll choose a Hero, then a Hero Power, and the cards offered in your picks will feature cards from BOTH of those classes, in addition to neutral cards. And don’t forget, you’ll get a free Arena ticket just for logging in, so there’s no excuse not to attend the party!
       
      TWO Tricky Tavern Brawls!
      Monster Smash is a special Hallow’s End Tavern Brawl that will run from October 17 to Oct. 22.
       
      Wise monster hunters avoid the haunted wood during Hallow’s End, so the creepy creatures of the Witchwood are taking the opportunity to find out which among them is the strongest! Take control of a monster from The Witchwood’s Monster Hunt single-player mission and SMASH the competition!

       
      The Headless Horseman Rides Again is a special Hallow’s End Tavern Brawl that will run from Oct. 24 to 29.
       
      The Headless Horseman has been marauding through the countryside, and it’s up to you to stop him! You’ll go in disguise to catch the fiend by surprise—after the Brawl begins, you’ll get to Discover which costume you’ll wear. Each costume has its own deck featuring cards from several classes and a passive Hero Power that you’ll need to make the most of if you want to succeed at sinking the sinister specter!

       
      Hallow! Hallow! Bundle
      While the creatures of the Witchwood stir, and townsfolk cower during the fearful fun of Hallow’s End, Sir Annoy-o remains ever undaunted! He doesn’t even know what a daunt is! Say HELLO! HELLO! HELLO! to the new Paladin Hero and add 20 The Witchwood card packs to your collection when you buy the Hallow! Hallow! Bundle.
       


       
      There’s a feast of fearsome fun to be had at the Headless Horseman’s Hallow’s End hootenanny. Don’t forget to check out a Hallow’s End Fireside Gatherings Tavern near you and get Nemsy Necrofizzle as the celebration continues!
       
      We hope you’ll join us, and we wish you a HAPPY HALLOW’S END!

       
      * NOTE: If you have an Arena run in progress when Hallow’s End begins on October 17, then it will be retired and you’ll receive the normal rewards for the number of wins you achieved and a free Arena ticket. In the hours just before the beginning and conclusion of Hallow’s End on October 17 and October 31, the ability to purchase a new Arena ticket will be temporarily disabled.
