I seem to never pull my moltens even by turn 10-15 sometimes... Dropped 2 ranks today cause of it. When I do pull both moltens I win easy and with style. Should I trade off my entire hand to try and get moltens while sacrificing some early game cards? Or have I just been having a really unlucky streak

No, you should never be mulliganing for Moltens, you're just getting unlucky, but also you should be able to win a decent amount of games without Moltens due the rest of the value of the deck. If you have no Moltens in your hand, look to Echo other things than can keep you alive like Healbot and Belchers.

If you want to play crazy, then swap your sheep or some draw for Feugen and Stalagg.  Wait for the opponent to use its premium removal because they think you're just Echo Giants, then plop down the duo.  You can just feel them saying "What the hell is this nonsense?" as you proceed to make multiple Thaddius tokens.

You can actually keep moltens in hand in some aggro match ups. I have been playing a variant of this deck for a while with really good success. I run double frostbolt instead of arcane intellect and second frost giant instead of sylvanas.

This deck is shit in my opinion, Call it unlucky or maybe I'm bad but there are better decks www.teamarchon.com I made this deck and lost 3 ranks against people who were only rank 17-18. Not worth the 4000 dust I wasted making it.

Tell that to Neviilz who regularly sits in top 10 Legend with it I guess.

One of this deck's weaknesses is dealing with Emperor Thaurissan.  I remember Neviilz puzzling over this months ago, but do you perhaps have a good answer? 

I usually feel like the polymorph should be saved for a bigger target in non-Patron match-ups, though I suppose it would be ideal to have giants out before something like Ysera comes out.

I started winning with this deck, but then i got a losing strike of like 15 games, cannot be coincidence. I reach under 10 rank lvl normally with control decks, so I'm not new to the game. This one seems too luck dependent. And try to line up the doomsayer with the frost nova and manage to keep it alive is a challenge. Not very happy w this one, has too many countersit seems.

Freeze mage is one of the hardest control decks, if not the hardest. Echo freeze can be seen in legend ranks meaning it can surely get you to legend. As it is one of the hardest decks, you are probably just not playing it optimally. Every single little mistake can lose you the game.

I agree that a little mistake can cost you. But losing to hunters with outdated decks is not normal. I'm guessing this deck does well at high ranks due the nature of the game when it reaches those levels but not been able to pass rank 19 is absurd. I'll give it more shots but I'm reluctant to see its usefulness. Is there a better option to doomsayer/frost nova? maybe instead of running with 2 of each just keeping 1 pair and adding some other form of control or removal, specially at turn 6.

You could also build a Freeze mage as it is stronger than Echo Mage. They seem to have the opposite match-ups. While Freeze mage is is favoured against aggro decks, it loses to Patron and Control. Echo is favoured against patron while losing to aggro decks. Now with the beginning of the season, everyone plays aggro decks or midrange hunters, making Echo unplayable.

Yeah I've "compared notes" with friends and all they get is aggro, I started playing this mid to last last season and it was effective. A situational deck it seems. I still feel that double doom+nova is too risky. I trade one pair with 2 frost elementals and got better results against rush.

Hello there,

 

Can I replace the Frost Giant by a Mountain Giant ? Because I've always a big hand.

No, Mountain Giant never gets cheap enough to activate a big Echo turn, the Frost Giant is only in the deck to help against players that try and push you to fatigue, Frost Giant can hit 0, Mountain Giant never will.

 

The best you'll ever do with a Mountain Giant is Giant, Echo, Giant - 2 Giants.

 

Frost Giant, Giant, Echo, Giant, Echo, Giant, Giant - 4 Giants.

Ok, thanks for the reply.

I'm still learning this deck but I've a good win/loss ratio with it.

 

I've cut a duplicate for an Acolyte of Pain like you said. I've some difficulties to manage 4 secrets for 2 Mad Scientists.

 

One last question, is it ok to replace a Flamestrike by a Blizzard  for more Doomsayer combo or it's not worth it ?

 

Thanks.

One mistake I made often when getting used to this deck was being conservative with my Echo of Medivhs.  While getting a bunch of giants is bangarang, spawning endless Sludge Belchers is, I say, the better way to fight aggro decks.

Yeah, this is mentioned in the guide I believe, sometimes making extra Healbots, or Belchers, or Emperors, or BGH's is the way forward.

 

I wouldn't include Blizzard in this deck, it's just a little clunky for what this deck wants to do.

Hey Sottle,

I was looking at this deck and I want to try it out. I have everything except for Alex. Is there anything you could recommend for a replacement.

2nd Poly, 2nd Explosive Sheep etc. It's not a card that you can replace directly, so just put another good card in the deck.

Because you only need one, your intention is to Echo it. The card just isn't very good in the deck outside of the Molten Giant situation, you don't want two clogging up the deck.

Hi, love the deck and have loved freeze mage-like decks since I began playing. Is this deck bad against druid, or am I bad at the match up?

It's...better against Druid than standard Freeze Mage is, but the matchup is still quite tough. You want to focus on trying to Dupe high value midrange minions like Belchers and Emperor and be competitive that way. Trying to last all the way through to the big Molten turn is pretty risky.

hi Sottle,

 

eh, I made this build month ago (but didn't post it in forums yet), I was surprised to see someone else made it here tongue.png

 

btw I prefer 2 poly and 1 blizzard (instead of sylvanas and big game hunter) the rest is like my build

      The Europe Spring Playoffs and Championship took place over the weekend of May 20-21, which decided not only the new Europe Champion, but also the four players who would represent Europe at the Global Spring Championship in Shanghai next month.
      After seven rounds of Swiss, the top eight players cut to a knockout phase. The results of which were as follows:
        Hoej beat   FibEli3
        Neirea beat   INER
        Rdu beat   Casie
        Kolento beat   StanCifka
      This means that Hoej, Neirea, Rdu, and Kolento will represent Europe in the Global Championship. The top eight being so strong is a sign that the metagame is in a healthy place. All of the players were already known to be among the best in Europe, and despite their lineups differing substantially, they were still able to make it through.
      Hoej went on to take the title, beating Kolento 3-0 in the final. Hoej has been touted as one of the best players in Europe for some time, but traditionally has brought Control decks to major events. This time around, he brought a very aggressive lineup, and was rewarded for his willingness to adapt his style to the meta.
      The deck archetypes that each player brought to the event are listed below:
      Hoej: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
      Kolento: Jade Druid, Midrange Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Neirea: Jade Druid, Discover Mage, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Rdu: Aggro Druid, Face Hunter, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      The next four players to qualify for the Global Championship will be decided next week, with the Americas Spring Championships.

      The Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) European Spring Playoffs will take place this weekend, 20-21 May 2017.
      This will be the first playoff event since Journey to Un'Goro was released, and so if anyone has saved any surprise deck tech, this is the event where it will be revealed.
      The top 64 point earners, and ties, from the EU server will be joined by 8 Tavern Hero tournament qualifiers for the event, which will be played in esports bars across Europe. If you want to attend one of the events to cheer on your local favourite, the list of locations can be found here. There will be side events for anyone wishing to attend, with Blizzard prizes available for winners, and the Power Core cardback for all attendees.
      The point standings, showing the top 64, can be found here. As usual the event is stacked with many of the big names from the region. The top four will advance to the HCT Spring Global finals next month.

      Fight Promoter is promoting Hearthstone by giving itself away! Ok, that didn't make sense, but the point is everyone gets a fee card for just logging in this Saturday!
      Blizzard (source)
      Yeah, we can get you a card. Really! Log in to Hearthstone on Saturday, May 20, to get a Fight Promoter card for free!

      No catch, just a free card--so don’t miss out.
      We’ll see you in the tavern!

      Who are we?
      Volatile are a group of mostly ex-mythic raiders, looking to get back into mythic raiding. We cleared through Nighthold heroic a number of months ago and need some more people in order to jump into mythic. 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. At this time we are full on tanks and healers.
      Tanks - Closed
      Healers - Closed
      Ranged DPS - MM Hunter, Warlock and Shadow Priest but all classes will be considered
      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:
