Hi everyone, here it is a cheap mage deck you can craft to win a few ranks in ladder and have a lot of fun. It does not requires naxx nor brm cards, so its perfect to any free to play who's just starting.

 

Mech Mage Deck:

 

2x Clockwork gnome (40 dust each)

2x Flamecannon (40 dust each)

2x Frostbolt (basic)

2x Unstable portal (100 dust each)

1x Sorcerer's apprentice (40 dust)

2x Annoy-o-tron (40 dust each)

2x Snowchugger (40 dust each)

2x Arcane intellect (basic)

1x Mirror entity (40 dust)

2x Harvest golem (40 dust each)

2x Fireball (basic)

2x Polymorph (basic)

2x Water elemental (basic)

2x Goblin blastmage (100 dust each)

1x Ogre Magi (basic)

2x Piloted shredder (40 dust each)

1x Flamestrike (basic)

 

Total dust required: 960 (all craftable)

 

Ogre magi may seem ridiculous but you'll see that may come pretty in handy when you need that extra dmg on flamecannon to kill a belcher and go face to win the game.

 

Sorcerer it's a good two drop minion for early game besides that reduction cost on spells.

 

I'm having great results with this deck, but let me know what you think of it and what changes would you make to improve it.

So from the beginning:

Cogmaster is a way better 1-drop than Clockwork, at least if you don't have Antonidas

Spider Tank is much better 3-drop than Harvest Golem

Mirror Entity makes absolutely no sense without Mad Scientist

No Mechwarper...

Unstable Portal is played in Mech Mage only in conjuction with Mana Wyrm, alone it does nothing

Ogre Magi, App, Water Elemental, Flame Cannon (especially without Wyrm)... I don't even know what they are suposed to do.

 

There is nothing wrong in playing on budget, but do it in sensible way, this is just bunch of random cards and it costs almost 1000 dust already. No Legend and no Adventures? Ok:

2x Cogmaster 

2x Clockwork Gnome (not that important since there is no Antonidas here and there are additional 1 drops in form of 2 Wyrms)

2x Mana Wyrm

2x Frostbolt

2x Portal (because you have them already)

2x Annoy

2x Snowchugger

2x Mechwarper

2x Spider Tank

2x Tinkertown

2x Shredder

2x Mech Yeti

2x Blastmage

2x Fireball

1x Azure Drake

1x Flamestrike

 

Around 1000 dust just like you asumming you don't have anything already (pretty unlikely considering you can easily collect most mechs from gvg packs) and now it's at least playable, while still budget. No adventures or legends included.

      So uhm, first post here and i take the opportunity to take you guys through my fabulous journey into "breaking" the tavern brawl this morning.
       
      So i get on that six-shooter tavern brawl with a mage decklist ( just cause i need them gold from quest ya know :D ) and on my second or third game,
       
      I play Research Project my opponent had then 10 cards in hand and draws for the turn, but no deck refill.... He then plays Barnes, no minion comes up from the battlecry. so it aint a visual bug. start my turn, play another Research Project, my opponent fatigues for 1+2, i can then OTK him with my 0 costs spells due to my 4 copies of Sorcerer's Apprentice.
      Fun fact, the tavern brawl clearly says; Make a six-card deck and duel! Don't worry - when you're out of cards you get a free reload!.
      Can anyone recall to this happening to them or no one had the cojones to mill?
