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?

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.

      Who are we?
      Volatile are a group of mostly ex-mythic raiders, looking to get back into mythic raiding and for us to be able to do that we need some more people to fill the gaps. 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. But we are also interested in any dps class with a good healing offspec. Even though your class isn't listed below, don't be afraid of getting in contact with us.
      Tanks - Closed
      Healers - Closed
      Ranged DPS - Open
      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)
      Passive#2900, Malenky (ingame)

      A new Tavern Brawl has been introduced this week by Ahune the Frost Lord himself.
      In this Brawl, you will play as either Uther or Jaina. They both have premade decks and Uther is reportedly slightly better than Jaina, which is interesting since Mage usually dominates in Tavern Brawls.
      Here is Uther's deck:
      Jaina uses a Reno deck, minus the Reno:
      Both heroes are immune to damage and they cannot be healed nor keep armor. The only way to damage them is by killing the Ragnaros? minions. These are 1/4 minions and there is one of them at each side of the board. They cannot attack and upon death they deal 4 damage to the opponent of the current player. This means that you can kill both minions (the one on your side and the one on your opponent's side) and your opponent will take all the damage. Moreover, once a Ragnaros? dies, a new one will appear thus making it possible to kill multiple of them in one turn.

      Some tips you should know:
      If the game reaches the fatigue stage, in the next round the enemy that has the least amount of health will automatically die and their opponent will be crowned as the winner. At the moment, Ice Block and Eye for an Eye seem to be bugged and they are not working as intended. This will be fixed soon. Bomb Squad and Ancient Curse deal no actual damage to you, so don't be afraid! This is the 110th Brawl and it's part of the Frost Festival. If you want to find out more about the Frost Festival, check our main article on it.

      As Ragnaros' Midsummer Fire Festival has ended, it is time for Ahune the Frost Lord to take over with the Frost Festival! 
      As we explained in our previous post, this is a holiday that celebrates Arena mode. Once you log in the game, you will see that Ahune is giving you a free Arena ticket for this week. This will happen for the entire duration of the festival, so in total you will get three free Arena keys.
      You will also get a free win each time you start an Arena run, whether it's from a free or a purchsed entrance key.
      You will also get a quest to play three Arena games. This weekly quest awards you with a Knights of the Frozen Throne card pack. Once again, you will receive this quest next week and the week after that accounting for a total of three Knights of the Frozen Throne packs (assuming you complete the quests).

      Feel free to check out our Arena guides and card rankings before you step into the Arena!
      As far as the themed Tavern Brawl called Ahune's Superior Brawl is concerned, you can read more about it here.
      The Frost Festival has created speculation for the next expansion. Since it will run for three weeks, it is going to end on August 9. The day after that, August 10, is thought by many to be the date that Knight of the Frozen Throne will be released.

      Well, after the failed interview with Ben Brode and his dreams of being a Hearthstone developer squashed, the Lord of the Scourge decided to prove himself an accomplished entrepreneur and take what he's naturally good at - making ice - and adding cream. And so, behold the new ICC, Arthas' latest wondrous edifice: the Ice Cream Citadel.
      Of course, true to form, Blizzard took this little in-joke all the way and will have the Ice Cream Citadel, an actual ice cream shop, at the Petco Park Interactive Zone in San Diego near San Diego Comic-Con®, featuring two flavors: Villain-illa and Scourgeberry Sorbet.

      Greetings, mortal whelps!
      As part of my efforts to prove to the accursed Brode that I possess the necessary experience to command the Hearthstone development team, I have decided to expand my efforts to all aspects of mortal enterprise.
      At first I considered peddling power and vengeance, but according to my focus testing, the foremost human craving seems to be for cold, creamy, sweetened sludge. I have decided to create a frozen-cream sugar-ooze unlike any you have ever tasted. You will desire it.
      Prepare yourselves for the grand opening of Ice Cream Citadel, a fortress of refreshment in the scorching heat that afflicts this place. I will be on hand to personally help you conquer the heat with free ice cream. You need spend no money for your first taste of my power.
      Choose from an endless selection of TWO flavors:

      Behold my tasteful brochure:

      Attend the Petco Park Interactive Zone in San Diego near San Diego Comic-Con® and be guided to your just desserts by this map:

      You may also take photographs of me with no immediate fear of retribution. Share proof of your delicious ice cream conquests on social media using the #icecreamcitadel “hashtag,” whatever that means.
      Begin preparations for your journey now. Ice Cream Citadel will receive supplicants between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. PDT July 20 through July 22, and 9:00 am to 5:00 pm PDT on July 23.
