Hey sottle, just started playing this deck and was wondering if an arcane intellect would be a good add or not? Thanks

Arcane Intellect is an anti-Tempo card. It was always needed to an extent in Tempo Mage, because there wasn't enough solid stuff to go in the deck by default. The goal is to cut it from the deck completely and not need it, and I hope we've reached that point, but maybe not. You can use one if you like.

hey sottle what should I replace the shitty spell slingers with? I am not a huge fan of them, they are way too RNG and can fuck you over so much whilst giving you absolute shit that is 2 expensive to ever combo with you stuff. I have played like 30 games with it and im bouncing between rank 3 and 4, I was rank 2 before TGT.

I really dislike both Rhonin and Spellslinger. Rhonin is way too slow and Slinger's insane RNG lost me games that would have been easily won otherwise. Can i replase Rhonin with Ragnaros and the slingers with Kirin Tor and Mirror Images ?

Rag for Rhonin is totally fine.

Spellslinger, if you cut it, you're back to not have a solid 3-drop to play, which was one of the deck's flaws prior to TGT. Kirin Tor isn't it, Flamewaker isn't a card you just want to play on 3 most of the time. So yeah, that's what the card is in the deck for. If you want to cut it, just put some of the cards from the old Tempo Mage back in.

Would it be safe to cut shredder or slinger for Counterspell? Thanks for the hard work guys!

Flamewaker is not a card you want to cut from Tempo Mage.

Any recommendation/room for a flamestrike somewhere?

 

I'm uploading a new build today that runs a Flamestrike, you can try that.

How about replacing Loatheb for Emperor since the synergy with Antonidas would be significant higher?

Yeah you can try that, I thought about that slot really hard before I went with Loatheb.

I ALLWAYS draw the wrong cards! ALLWAYS! Winrate 35% atm.

 

Not really much I can say to that. If it's actually just variance with bad draws, keep playing and it will even out. Otherwise, just try and learn how to improve your usage of the cards you do draw to stay in more games and scrape out some wins.

The more I play tempo mages these days the more I feel like I'm playing control.

Especially with both Antonidas and Rhonin in the deck it feels like a combo deck. Also combo pieces with flamewaker, sorc apprentice. These cards should be hold off one or 2 pieces for the combo in later game. 

I dont run spellslinger. it's been doing more harm than good for me so I run arcane blast and flamestrike instead.

And I switch between emperor and loathb. 

 

So my question is. Maybe add in belchers? 

But card choices are so tight already. I can only think in place of shredders or mech yetis.

I dont see it being good with belchers or healbot either. But the development of this deck is too slow for it to be viable. I'm getting wrecked by aggrodin as I'm typing this reply.

 

I understand the idea is to have constant pressure to the opponent in the early game but it doesn't deliver well. I've been playing tempo mage a whole full day now...

Something like Flamewaker, Arcane Missiles should sweep an Aggro pally board pretty hard, it's not like you don't have the answers in the deck. And don't think that a day playing a Hearthstone deck is enough to think you're playing the deck right or understand how it works, i've been playing variations of this deck for almost a year, and I still learn things when I play :P

By the way, I played this deck to success at a UK Lan last weekend, and that meta was infested with Aggro Paladin and Face Hunter.

What do you think about replacing Shredder with Water Elemental? Not needed due to Frost Bolt?

Greeting

As good as Water Ele is, Shredder is even better in most situations, it also offers great synergy with Effigy, since you get a new 4-drop plus a 2-drop when it dies. Water Ele might be better in the Secretless version I posted though, i'll try it out.

How about Nexus-Champion Saraad instead of Loatheb in this deck? Or would that be too slow?

      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)
      Council:

      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.
