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.

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.

      Various bosses from The Witchwood's Monster Hunt are ready to battle it out in this week's brand new Tavern Brawl.
      This is the first special Tavern Brawl that we will see during this year's Hallow's End.
      You just queue up and you get assigned a random boss from the Monster Hunt. Some of these bosses include:
      Azalina Soulthief (Hero Power: 2 mana - Summon three 1/1 Wisps) Blood Witch Greta (Passive Hero Power: Spells cost Health instead of Mana) Brushwood Centurion (Hero Power: 3 mana - All minions attack random enemy minions) Chupacabran (Hero Power: 1 mana - Give a friendly minion +1/+1 and Lifesteal) Plaguemaster Rancel (Hero Power: 2 mana - Deal 2 damage to a minion. If it survives, give it Poisonous) Shudderwock (Passive Hero Power - All Battlecries trigger twice) Winslow Tobtock (Hero Power: 2 mana - Each player shuffles their hand into their decks and draws that many cards) Wharrgarbl (Hero Power: 2 mana - Draw 3 Murlocs from your deck) Experiment 3C (Hero Power: 1 mana - Destroy a friendly minion and draw 3 cards) It's not sure how many bosses there are available, but they certainly have similar decks as during the PvE adventure. It might be worth checking our Monster Hunt guide to refresh your memory on some of their abilities or just experience them in action!

      Hallow's End is going to last from October 17 until October 31.
      As we've already discussed, you can log in to enjoy the spooky festivities and receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron.
      You will also get a free Arena entry ticket in order to test your mettle in the Dual Class Arena. Pick a Hero, choose the Hero Power of a second Hero and try to make the perfect mix with the combined might of both Heroes' class cards.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end: Monster Smash (October 17-22) and The Headless Horseman Rides Again (October 24 - 29)!
      Lastly, for a limited time you can purchase the new Paladin hero, Sir Annoy-o, as a Bundle along with 20 Witchwood packs at the price of $19.99 or 19.99 EUR. This mighty new hero even has his own backstory which you can read here.
      Later today, we should also see the balance changes go live.
    • By Zadina
      The update will take effect on October 18.
      Well, the balance changes were smaller than expected as only three cards were affected this time.
      As expected, Giggling Inventor was affected as it now costs 7 mana, up from 5. The team actually considered it too powerful for 6 mana, which raises the question why it was 5 mana in the first place. Anyway, it still remains an odd card if this is still relevant.

      Now, a big and unexpected change was Mana Wyrm being raised to 2 mana. The iconic Classic minion has undergone the Tunnel Trogg treatment and after 4+ years of power, it is ready to retire.

      And a Wild change to alleviate the devastating Druid combo: Aviana will now cost 10 mana. This means she can't be played at the same turn as Kun the Forgotten King and Juicy Psychmelon won't be able to draw both Kun the Forgotten King and Aviana with it.

      The update will go live on October 18th with the weekly reset. What do you guys think about the changes?

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!
