do you think there's any effective freeze mage variation that doesn't run alex?i have all the other cards listed(including antonidas and thalnos),but not her,and i find the deck very fun to play.

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 HCT Summer Championship took place from 13-15 October 2017. The top four players advanced to the World Championship in January.
      After three days of competition the winner was   Surrender, who joins Planet Odd teammate Hoej at the World Championship. Surrender won a tense final 3-2 against   Orange, with the final game being a Highlander Priest mirror. In that game, Orange chose to mill Surrender for five cards to attempt to burn the combo, but the attempt failed. The VoD of the final can be found here.
      Listed below are the other finishing positions, and the number of packs you will receive for picking each player as your champion in the "Choose your Champion" promotion.
      Finalists, 4 Packs: Surrender, Orange. 
      Semi-Finalists, 3 Packs: JasonZhou, Purple
      Quarter-Finalists, 2 Packs: Empanizado, OldBoy, Pavel, Tom60229
      All other players were worth 1 Pack.
      All of the decks from the event can be found on our new esports section here.

      For the first time, the Hearthstone World Champion won't be determined at BlizzCon.
      It was noticed that European venues weren't getting much love in this year's Hearthstone Championship Tour, but it turns out that the World Championship finals will take place in Amsterdam!
      HCT will finish its journey in the Beurs van Berlage Conference centre, lasting from Thursday 18th January 2018 until Sunday 21st January 2018.
      Anyone who physically attends the World Championship will get the following card back, while they will also be able to participate in on-site tournaments:

      The tournament's format will be the same as all other seasonal Hearthstone Championships. 16 players will fight for a total prize pool of $1,000,000 USD! Eight players have qualified so far from the Winter and Spring Championships: Ant, DocPwn, Fr0zen, Hoej, Kolento, Neirea, SamuelTsao and ShtanUdachi. Four more players will qualify from the Summer Championship, that is currently going on this weekend. And the last four players will be seeded from the highest HCT point earners from each region (Last Call slots).
      A question remains: without the World Championship this year, will there be any e-sports events at BlizzCon? According to its schedule, the answer is yes! There will be a Hearthstone Inn-vitational, where four teams of three Hearthstone personalities each will compete against each other in various formats; there is also the NA Tavern versus Tavern tournament.
