Hello there,

I have all the cards but Sylvanas, Dr. Boom and Ragnaros.

Would you be so kind to suggest replacements.

Thank you

Tashev, this dbuild ck requires you to have a strong late-game, like every control-like deck. Playing without Legendaries will make you much weaker in the late-game when other decks start dropping their Booms, Rags etc. and this deck usually does enter late game. Without telling what other Legendaries you own. If you have for example, Sneeds and Ysera, it's ok to play them instead , but if you have none of good generic Legendaries, you should probably change the deck and start savng dust for them.

Geoff, thank you for your fast response. Regrettably my 7+ crystal legendaries away from the solo play ones expire with Foe Reaper ....

@shadis86: I'm running this deck, but since I don't have rag I swapped in antonidas.  

 

Its working really well for me thus far.  

 

I also swapped the shredders for mech yetis to try and synergise with antonidas better, but I'm not 100% sure if thats an improvement or not.  Only time will tell.

Not so good, this hand.  I played at rank 10-11 4 times in a row and lost every time.  It starts out great but I ran into card trouble about round 9 or 10 every time.  Needs more draw cards.

If you're running Tony, then Mech Yeti seems reasonable. You can also add in a 1 off Arcane Missiles or Mirror Image to synergise even further, both with your early game and with Tony.

I actually have a more agressive version of this deck that will go up soon that is focused more on that strategy.

Sounds like you're probably not getting enough value out of the cards you do have. This deck, and slight variations of it is being played by many high rank Legend players right now.

I play a deck very similar to this. I am also pretty new to the game, so i am not always aware of deck types or combos that my enemy could be playing. I started using Flamestrike as I seemed to become over run by rush aggro decks. I also subbed in vaporize which helps free up some direct damage and spread it around. This is currently at the expense of Ragnaros the Firelord (which I would use but I just dont have it yet) and Sylvanas Windrunner (same case). Any advice on learning about the game and use of this deck? Usually Shaman and Paladin decks will slip me up if they are fast-moving and I just can't get ahead.

Running Flamestrike to counter heavy aggro decks make little sense, vs real aggro like Zoo, Face Hunter or even Mech shaman you are pretty much going to be dead before you reach 7 mana curve/soona fter that, if you really struggle against aggros. As for learning the deck, I'd give you a link to really nice guide for new era Tempo mage, but I don't think linkink to other sites is ok here.

Thanks tup. I am still messing around in casual with cards to swap. I again got creamed by a faster minion deck. I'll keep trying. It's pretty fun!

Having some trouble handling decks that do Knife Juggler and 1/1 flood early. Too early for Flamestrike and can run over my initial creatures quickly.

 

Swap one Flamecannon for Arcane Explosion maybe? I don't see Arcane Explosion much around, is it good as meta answer to above?

That shouldn't be a problem, if they play a Knife Juggler on 2, the idea is to have a Frostbolt or Flamecannon for it, or contest it with an early Mana Wyrm or Mad Scientist.

Not sure what's the deck type is called, but it's a warlock with a very low curve. Typically runs Knife Juggler, Haunted Creeper, Abusive Sergeant, Ironbeak Owl... Really troublesome to shoot/trade it up fast enough in early game.

Yeah, sounds like Zoo. Like I said, you should have removal for their early drops and then be able to outvalue them later.

In couple of late evenings playing got to rank 12 quite easily, then got destroyed down to 15 in horrible loosing streak, then made it back to 12.

 

Doing pretty bad against aggro. Face Hunter is hard (need a good start). Warlock Zoo is still plain unwinnable for me. There are no answers to Haunted Creepers and Imp-losion, which with other stuff can take out any of my early creatures twice over.

 

Questioning Kirin mage, never manage to get a good play out of it, too few secrets. Currently trying Kezan in its place to help against Face Hunter (tons of them at the moment) and other Mages.

What're some good replacements for Sylvanas? I've been doing good without her, but I need a good replacement, and flamestrike doesn't really seem to fit as one.

Sottle. Love your Mech Mage that tops out with Dr Boom and have been climbing the ladder with it. Would like to play this deck or another recent one, but I don't have Ragnaros or Antonidas. I do have Ysera but she seems a little slow. Are there any subs I could do that would make this deck as strong or better than your Mech Mage? Or should I just stick with that?

Sottle: I've been playing your Mech Mage deck that tops out with Dr. Boom. I like it and have been climbing the ladder with it. I'd like to play one of your newer decks on the Mage page, but I don't have Antonidas or Ragnaros. I do have Ysera, but I think she is a little slow. Are there any substitutions for Ragnaros that I could make or should I just stick with the Mech Mage deck from December?

I want to play this deck but I don't have Ragnaros. Ysera is my only other legendary finisher outside of Nax and BrM cards. Is there a viable sub for Rag or should I continue playing the Mech Agro/Rush deck posted at the bottom of the Mage decks. That deck is working out well for me so far, but just wondering if this one is stronger?

In Hearthstone, it's not a matter of one deck being stronger or weaker, it's a matter of decks being appropriate for the decks and the meta that you're facing. If Mech Mage is performing well for you, you should absolutely stick with it.

Any suggestions on tweaking this against Grim Patron? Seeing too much of it at the moment and games against it are just... deadly boring. Still lack Ragnaros, so that's probably loses me late game too.

 

Face Hunter collapses pretty well to well placed Kezan Mystic, but I can't think of anything that really ruins Grim Patron party.

      Doom in the Tomb is now live and the update comes with all-new 1,000 Win Portrait Rewards and 23 cards that are temporarily stepping out of Wild back into Standard. Note that the cards will remain in Standard until the next major update and exact end dates and times will be announced in the weeks ahead.
      Blizzard (Source)
      A new Hearthstone update has just arrived, featuring the “Doom in the Tomb” Hallow’s End event, Wild cards temporarily returning to Standard, portrait rewards for dedicated Hearthstone players, and much more!
      New Event - Doom in the Tomb!

      Pack your torches and latch your helmets, Heroes. The Headless Horseman has infiltrated Uldum’s deserted desert tombs, outfitted himself with powerful relics, and has set his sights on besting the battling Leagues! The new Doom in the Tomb event starts today, October 8, and will last until October 30. Here’s what’s in store:

      Week 1: Doom in the Tomb, Part 1
      Gear up with your favorite member from the League of E.V.I.L and delve into the Haunted Temple, full of the baddest bosses in Uldum! The clock is running, too – race to set the record for the fastest Temple run! Rewards Complete a run in under 1 hour and earn a Rastakhan’s Rumble Card Pack. Complete a run in under 40 minutes to earn a Golden Common Ancient Mysteries!
      Week 2: Doom in the Tomb, Part 2
      E.V.I.L has their turn, and now it’s up to Reno and the League of Explorers to join the run and flex their Temple diving speed. New enemies and challenges await!

      Rewards Complete a run in under 1 hour and receive a Golden Common Temple Berserker Complete a run in under 40 minutes to earn a Golden Rare Generous Mummy
      Week 3: The Haunted Carousel
      Get ready for the big mix-up! In this Tavern Brawl, you’ll need to strategize around minions constantly rotating board positions – all while controlling the Horseman’s time-shifted Dreadsteeds!

      Rewards Summon 100 Dreadsteeds to earn a Rise of Shadows Card Pack Dual-Class Heroes

      The Dual-Class Arena Hallow’s Eve dress-up party is back! When you start an Arena run during the Doom in the Tomb event, you’ll choose a Hero, then a Hero Power, and card offerings will feature cards from BOTH of those classes, in addition to neutral cards.
      Players who have an active Arena run when this begins will have their current run ended and will receive an Arena Ticket as compensation. To ensure that players have a chance to try out this devilish dual-class deck-building dress-up party, anyone who logs in during each of the first two weeks will receive one Arena Ticket per week! This event coincides with our normal Arena rotation. The new Arena sets in rotation are as follows: Curse of Naxxramas Goblins vs. Gnomes Blackrock Mountain The Grand Tournament League of Explorers Whispers of the Old Gods One Night in Karazhan Mean Streets of Gadgetzan Journey to Un'Goro Knights of the Frozen Throne Kobolds & Catacombs Hex & Flex Bundles

      Hex Bundle
      If you thought the League of E.V.I.L. was securely under wraps, think again! Arch-Villain Rafaam has leveraged his lackeys and put together the Hex Bundle, 20 Rise of Shadows card packs and a random Rise of Shadows Legendary card at the discounted price of $19.99 USD. Flex Bundle
      Reno’s vest just doesn’t have room for bulging biceps AND stacks of card packs. That’s why he’s whipped together the Flex Bundle! Get 20 Saviors of Uldum packs and a random Saviors of Uldum Legendary card at the discounted price of $19.99 USD. Standard Shake-Up

      Starting with today’s patch and lasting until our next major update, 23 cards from across Hearthstone history are temporarily stepping out of Wild and back into Standard. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get straight into the action. These cards will be considered "event" cards, which essentially means that they're temporary copies and not permanent additions to your collection. Even if you already own the cards you'll still receive these event copies, and when the event ends they'll disappear.
      IMPORTANT NOTE: While these cards were re-introduced during the Doom in the Tomb event, they will remain in Standard past the event's conclusion, until the launch of our next major update. More details will be shared, including exact end dates and times, in the coming weeks.
      Card List: Druid: Astral Communion Kun the Forgotten King Mage: Babbling Book Flamewaker Paladin: Mysterious Challenger Avenge Hunter: Lock and Load Call of the Wild Shaman: Evolve Thing from Below Rogue: Shaku, the Collector Swashburglar Priest: Lightbomb Vol'jin Warlock: Imp Gang Boss Renounce Darkness Warrior: Varian Wrynn Bloodhoof Brave Neutral: N'Zoth, the Corruptor Sylvanas Windrunner Ragnaros the Firelord The Curator Emperor Thaurissan 1,000 Win Portrait Rewards

      The time has come for dedicated Hearthstone players to flex their Hero mastery! We’re introducing new portraits earned by achieving 1,000 Ranked or Arena wins with each class. Wins earned before this update goes live will retroactively count towards these totals.

      Blizzard today announced a new event coming to the game on October 8. It's called Doom in the Tomb. Check out what's in store for Hearthstone this month!
      UPDATE
      Placeholder for tweet 1180177096972222464 Blizzard (Source)
      Legends have told of dangers lurking within the Haunted Temple of Uldum and the grand ancient treasures they conceal. Of course, “treasure” was all anyone had to mention to get Reno and Rafaam on board, and now their sights are set on acquiring the temple’s powerful artifacts for their own campaigns!
      It won’t be an easy task, though. While our Heroes and Villains battle to push deeper through the Haunted Temple, the Headless Horseman has resorted to a nefarious contingency and opened a sealed sarcophagus full of WILD terrors. Now it will be up to you to aid the conquests of good, or E.V.I.L, in a race to uncover the tomb’s precious secrets and escape the doom in the tomb!

      Step into the Haunted Tomb
      The spooky spelunking adventures begin at 10:00 AM PT on October 8 and end at 9:00 AM PT on October 30 – three weeks packed full of new activities to participate in:

      Today we get a look at some of the smaller stuff coming up in Hearthstone's future, including new events like dual-class arenas, 23 old cards returning to standard (Ragnaros and N'zoth were mentioned), new class portraits for 1000 wins, and plenty of quality of life improvements!
      Behind the Doors (source)
      While we’re constantly recruiting lackeys, tinkering with experimental tech, and delving into dusty tombs to bring you new Hearthstone expansions and Adventures, we’re also hard at work on some awesome, albeit less flashy, new stuff. In this blog we’ll shine a light on some of the smaller, but still exciting new features, events, and changes coming to Hearthstone in the near future.

       
      Adding More Events

      After the overwhelmingly positive response to the recent Fire Fest-E.V.I.L. event, we’re looking for more opportunities to introduce even more large-scale in-game events with rewards, themed Tavern Brawls, and changes that could temporarily (or permanently!) create fun new Hearthstone experiences for players.
      We’re starting off with a new event in just a couple weeks featuring Dungeon Run-inspired Tavern Brawls, dual-class Arenas, Legendary quest rewards, and some meta-shifting changes outlined in the “Shaking up Standard Play” section below.
      We’ll have more to share on this sensationally spooky event on October 4, but in the meantime . . . try not to lose your head!
       

      Shaking up Standard Play

      Now that the Saviors of Uldum Standard ladder experience has solidified, we think it’s a great time to throw a wrench or two (or twenty-three) in the gears. We’re going to be pulling some of the most popular and game-changing cards from across Hearthstone history, including
      Ragnaros the Firelord and N'Zoth, the Corruptor, out of Wild and dropping them back into Standard for a limited time. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get them into the action.
      We’ll be sharing more details (including the full list of 23 cards) in a blog update on October 4. Stay tuned!

      1,000 Win Class Portraits
      Looking ahead, we want to continue celebrating personal successes and milestones for all you dedicated Hearthstone players. Our next major update will introduce some really cool new portraits that you can earn by earning 1,000 wins with each class. Wins earned before this update goes live will retroactively count towards these totals. Take a look at a couple of examples below and start stacking up those wins!



      Quality of Life Improvements
       
      Alternate Search Terms
      We want it to be easier to quickly find the cards you’re looking for while deckbuilding, so we’re adding alternate search terms for some hard-to-type cards. We’ll be adding common misspellings and simplified versions of leetspeak card names (found on some Mech minions). For example, searching “snip” or “snap” will now show you SN1P-SN4P. While this feature will only be enabled for a few commonly misspelled cards at first, we’ll be able to add even more alternate search terms as needed.
      This feature will also support languages other than English. For example, SN1P-SN4P in Latin American Spanish is “CL1C-CL4C”, so searching “clic” would return the expected results. Quest Changes
      While not included in our next major update, here’s a preview of some of the changes we’re making to quests a little further down the line.
      We’re cutting some of the less popular daily quests and tuning down some of their requirements to make them quicker and easier to complete. We’ll also be adding some new quests to the pool to mix things up! We split most daily quests into two buckets: Easy (50g) and Slightly More Difficult (60g). Rerolling a Slightly More Difficult (60g) quest (like Play 10 Beasts) always gives you an Easy (50g) quest, so players can be guaranteed to get an Easy quest every day if they want. We love  Murlocs and Pirates as much as anyone, but it should be your choice if you decide to complete their quests.
      We’re excited to be bringing these new features, events, and other changes to Hearthstone soon. Please let us know what you think on social media or the official Hearthstone forums. Until then, we’ll see you in the Tavern!
