Hello,

 

What would be a good replacement for Thaurissan? I'm trying Cairne but doesn't seem to work very well. Antonidas would be extremely bad? Do you have any other suggestion or Thaurissan is a must?

 

Ty!

I'm playing this deck and it works honestly well. However, it relies heavily on sunfire and it if it's not drawn on time the situation gets extremely hard. What could be taken out in order to add one extra sunfire?

It doesn't rely on Sunfury at all, you have multiple options to protect yourself when you activate you big Giants turn. Frost Nova, Ice Block etc.

You can cut one Sheep if you really want a second Sunfury

Is it possible to play this deck without alexstraza?

It is, but I guess it will cost you a game here and there. I have been climbing the ladder only with this deck this season. I found that Alexstrasza is really useful against Face Hunter or Zoo, if you manage to stall the game until Turn 9. I have used it to lower the health of my opponent to get them into kill range, but this deck is so strong in the late game, that in this case Alexstrasza becomes more of a winmore card.

So, I would advise replacing it with a card that helps against Aggro deck, like a second Polymorph for the occasional annoying minion (think Savannah Highmane or Doomguard), Blizzard (so you can follow up a turn 5 Frost Nova + Doomsayer that saw Doomsayer get killed or silenced, without having to wait for Turn 7 Flamestrike), or an additional early taunt, like maybe Annoy-o-Tron or Undead Ghoul. How's that for an explanation, Sottle?

I would love to try this deck out. BUT I don't have Sylvannas, and I have only 1 iceblock.. I have enough dust to make an iceblock, but what can I use in place of sylvannas?

A deck cant be a Giants mage, if it doesnt have all 8 Giants, like wtf

 

same as a deck cant be mono-red if it isnt MONO-RED

The title stands for the fact, that this is a variation of the old-school freeze mage deck, with the inclusion of giants.

Does Dragon Paladin play every Dragon?

Does Mech Mage play every Mech?

What on Earth are you talking about?

Blizzard, Acolyte of Pain, Ice Barrier, lot of potentially good cards that you can squeeze in. Even a single Frostbolt or Fireball can come in handy.

Hello, I'm fairly new to the game. I would like to know if blizzard would be a good addition to this deck? And if not, could you give me some examples of why it shouldn't be played?

It's not a matter of it being a bad card in the deck, it's just that you're limited to 30 cards. If you were to include Blizzard, something would have to get cut, and every card in the deck plays a pretty important role at the moment.

What about Antonidas? Seems he'd be useful due to lack of fireballs? Anyway, gonna try the deck out and see how I fair

The deck doesn't rely on burn, or have many cheap spells to combo with Antonidas in the same turn, so it's a pretty weak inclusion.

This deck is awesome, started playing HS at the end of July and I am rank 10 with this deck. What I like about it is that it is end game focused and has the necessary means to deal with all the insane legendaries with poly and bgh. 

 

Really satisfying gameplay, thanks Sottle. Can you recomend a Frost Giant deck for TGT? I feel like moltens maybe too slow in the meta come TGT. Pinging will become a big gameplay mechanic and the minions involved. Thanks.

I've been playing this deck for a few weeks now, and it wrecks just about everything I've encountered.  I love it!

 

What do you think about the inclusion of Kel'Thuzad?  Windrunner is a great minion, but I'm feeling like Kel'ty would be a better match for keeping a couple giants or sticky creeps on the board until I can finish off my opponent.  Similarly, the meta presently seems to not be full of aggro decks to use both Explosive Sheeps on, so I don't think I would miss one if I swapped it.

I think Sylvanas is significantly better than KT in this deck, so I wouldn't make that direct substitution, if you feel comfortable cutting an anti-aggro card for more late-game though, you can definitely try that and see how it goes.

      Quest rewards from today until July 30th will be doubled during the triumphant return of the Midsummer Fire Festival!
       
      Just in time for the upcoming Hearthstone expansion on August 7th, the Midsummer Fire Festival will reward double the gold for all quests completed from now until July 30th.
      Much like last year's festival, Ragnaros has come to "CURE US OF BOREDOM" by bringing us some fresh Hearthstone content. Announced in today's post were new emotes and a new Tavern Brawl, but we can probably also expect a number of daily login surprises if this year's festival is anything like last year's. Expect to hear plenty of amusing dialogue when you log in to Hearthstone over the next few weeks, including plenty of jabs at Ahune the frost elemental.

      A new Shaman card was revealed in today's blog post, which shed light on the backstory behind The Boomsday Project.
      A new Shaman card was revealed today on the official Blizzard blog in a post titled The Boomsday Project: Lab Logs Part 1:

       
      A 2/2 Elemental isn't quite worth 2 Mana, while the Battlecry effect on Menacing Nimbus isn't quite worth 1 Mana. Together, the 2 effects add up to a card which likely provides you with more than 2 Mana of value, which makes Menacing Nimbus a playable card in my opinion. If there's an Elemental Shaman deck in the new meta, I expect Menacing Nimbus to be a valuable curve-filler in it.
       

       
      It's hard to say whether the most exciting part of today's post was the new card, or the amount of backstory, hidden clues, and new art which was provided for The Boomsday Project. I'm sure that someone smarter than myself can decode today's post to discover a number of things about the upcoming expansion.

      This Mage Legendary card was revealed in collaboration with Wronchi!
      If you remember from the expansion announcement video, Hearthstone's developers were sucked into Netherstorm and it's up to Levi the intern to rescue them! As he ventures into Boom Labs, he encounters Stargazer Luna.
      The video was made by Wronchi Animations, who have created many beloved and hilarious Hearthstone cartoons. There's probably going to be a second part, so expect more card reveals!
      Now, let's talk about the card itself.

      With a Netherstorm expansion, one would expect that the magnificent Kael'thas would have been the Mage Legendary. Instead, we get Stargazer Luna which is a very interesting card with a decent statline. She can complement perfectly Aggro/Burn Mage, but you could perhaps find her in Minion-based Mage decks: mostly Murloc Mage, but maybe Elemental Mage as well. She has potentially better tempo than Aluneth, but is more risky. You obviously don't want to play her on turn 3. Let the topdeck wars begin!
      The reveal schedule is unclear at the moment, but it should go as with previous expansions: an initial reveal livestream on July 23, followed by roughly two weeks of card reveals by community sites and personalities, then a final stream before The Boomsday Project releases on August 7.

      New features include Legendary spells, the Magnetic keyword, Omega cards and Project spells.
      The second expansion of the Year of the Raven was indeed related to Netherstorm, home of the unforgettable Dr. Boom, and it's called the Boomsday Project. Apart from the new features, five cards were also revealed.
      The announcement video has an appropriate 80s science fiction movie vibe, featuring notable faces from the Hearthstone team.
      It's Goblins vs Gnomes 2.0 as the Mech tribe is definitely going to return with a vengeance! There's a new keyword called Magnetic: Magnetic minions can either be played on their own or they can be fused with a Mech minion that's on the board to add to their health, attack and ability.

      Omega cards can also be played regularly. However, if you play them at 10 Mana Crystals, you will get a powerful boost. The Battlecry assures that the OP version cannot be cheated out. Druid, the only class that can ramp its Mana up, will surely find a use for this type of minion. Curiously enough, the Omega Defender isn't a Mech, even though it definitely looks like one.

      Projects are powerful spells, that will benefit both players. Assumedly, all classes will have a Project spell. "Research" and "Weapons" Projects were teased, with the latter probably belonging to Warrior.

      We've seen all kinds of Legendary cards: minions, Quests, Weapons, Hero cards. Now it's time for Legendary Spells to make their appearance. I wonder if there are any special rules when it comes to Discovering or playing discounted versions of Legendary Spells, because they can potentially be powerful. Here's the Rogue one:

      That's all with the new features, but don't forget: The Boomsday Project isn't all about mechs and projects. It's also about science, crazy discoveries and the manipulation of elements. Under this thematic, we can find the Shaman Legendary minion:

      It's almost certain that Dr. Boom will be making a grand return for this Hearthstone Expansion; after all, he's the big boss on The Boomsday Project. He was shortly teased in the announcement video: unfortunately, this time around not all classes will be able to enjoy the Dr. Boom goodness as he looks like a Warrior card. Lord Jaraxxus will also reinvent himself as a new Warlock Hero skin: Mecha-Jaraxxus!

      According to the official announcement post, the new expansion will go live on August 7, 2018 - a week earlier than August expansions from previous years. The official site of The Boomsday Project is also up!
      The Boomsday Project will also bring along new PvE Adventure content: The Puzzle Lab! It will go live on August 21 and from the description on the official site, it looks slightly different from the Dungeon Run and the Missions. Players will have to participate in successful experiments against nine bosses. These include goals like "Lethal", which is kill the enemy in one turn; Mirror, which requires you to create a perfect copy of your opponent's board; Board Clear; and Survival, which requires you stay alive from the opponent's attacks! You will earn the following card back for completing The Puzzle Lab:

      Here is the new Boomsday board:

      The login launch reward for The Boomsday Project will be three packs and a random Class Legendary card. A card reveal livestream will be held on July 23 at 10:00 am PST on the official Hearthstone Twitch channel.
      Pre-ordering The Boomsday Project has some additional perks compared to other expansions and two different options. You can preorder the normal Bundle which will contain 50 The Boomsday Project packs, a random Golden Legendary card from the expansion and the Mecha-Jaraxxus card back. Or you can get the Mega Bundle, which contains 80 packs, a random Golden Legendary, the Mecha-Jaraxxus card back and the Mecha-Jaraxxus Warlock Hero skin.
