Lost 10 games in a row with this deck at rank 20...

 

This might be because you don't check for card like humility, frostbolt or you play Fel Reaver when he was taunts up. You simply are playing the deck badly. If you gave me replay, I would be bale to help you. Next time you criticize, be more constructive.

No, I just don't luck out and get a Mechwarper in my hand during the first half of the deck. This deck is completely dependent on getting lucky with the right starting draw. If you don't get at least 2/3 of the preferred starters then you're basically screwed unless opponent is clueless.

Hello there. I was much of a lurker in the forums. Hope you don't mid this first post.

 

Anyway, I don't have a Piloted Sky Golem. but I have all the other cards. Would there be any viable alternatives?

So, I just build the deck today. I was missing a Loatheb, Fel Reaver, and a Piloted Sky Golem, so I replaced them with some mediocre cards. I got to rank 18 without any loses, I was rank 20, and only drew the mechwarper once.

Edit: Rank 15 without any loses I don't know if that's any good but it destroys any of my other decks.

Great deck. 5 victories in a row. Sweet. I need 2 fel reavers and Loatheb to complete it (so I put medibot and 2 Taz Dingos in deck to replace them, works ok).

i dont have the reavers, but i am stuck on lv 17.

 

i think this deck misses :

1.) some draw ability, cause i tend to run ou of cards in hand and get stuck with regular draw

2.) ablility to deal with high attack/life creatures. i miss polymorph and 2 firebals are not enough.

3.) mass dmg spell. so i added flamestrike.

 

or am i too playing the deck wrong ?

 

what swaps would you suggest  ???

I have to agree this deck just can't compete with the current speed of new decks and doesn't have enough removal or silences to compete with new control decks.

The current meta is really bad for Mech Mages and tech cards really don't matter. Just hope that druid will be more popular and mech mage might even become viable again.

I'm play this deck for a week.

 

It's a nice deck but if my opponent flip the board once im prety much done for.Because in order to gain the advantage i often use most of my card in hand and when they flip the board i can only pray to god to top deck an answer.

 

i think no draw ability is the weakness in this deck.

i started to build this deck some days ago. because i am missing loathe, 1x fel reaver and 1x piloted sky golem, i replaced them with 2x jeeves and 1 micro machine. it worked pretty well for many games! i will keep it like this until i have enough dust for the missing cards.

This deck is no longer viable, especially not for reaching legendary. It has zero board clear and there are better mech cards out there (ex: Gorilla-Bot) that aren't even in this deck. Either keep your deck list updated or remove it from the site... garbage!

Basically- you expect a BUDGET DECK whose deck type is out of meta to easily reach legend? I would call Blastmage's ability a board clear. Also, it is the only board clear any pro player uses when playing mech mage. Also, if Gorillabot is just an example, would you please provide more mechs which would fit in this deck? Also, if you struggle with this deck so much that you need to complain about it, I believe it is your skill what is garbage.

This is not a bad deck, I bottomed out on rank 20 on purpose today, and now I am sitting on rank 10 just by using this. I lacked a second piloted shredder and second Fel Reaver, so I replaced the Shredder with a Mech Yeti, and the Second Reaver with a Kvaldir Raider (I think I might just remove this and add a piloted skygolem until I get the second reaver) . It's pretty sweet, and knowing I am running it with a sub-optimal build makes me want to craft that second Fel Reaver asap. The only difficulty I'm having is in beating druids (and some secrets paladins, if I don't have the fel reaver out by turn 5, they always have dr. boom on turn 7). All in all I look forward to completing this deck, and maybe even adding Archmage Antonidas and Dr. Boom in it to increase its viability, before standard hits

This is a decent deck and definitely wins games!

(Stuck between 12/13 atm.. a win at r12 is lucky and r13 seems to be 50/50)

You don't need to fully copy this deck to win games!

My variation includes jeeves, junkbot and a polymorph... mix it up and find out what works for you, the strategy stays the same!

Board clears are a pain so here's a few tips to keep in mind and hopefully minimise the loss of tempo -

- don't play doubles of important minions!

two mechwarpers is tempting and with the possibility of playing fel reaver on turn 3 is almost irresistible - but if it's doesn't work out you will certainly miss them later. -snowchugger when up against weapon users. -cogmaster too (unless you are able to get them out on turn 1 useing the coin)

- goblin blast mage is your best minion for board control. Use its battle cry like an aoe and don't be afraid to trade it.

Hope this helps and try your own variations of this deck!

      Two new cards from Rastakhan's Rumble were revealed in an official blog post detailing the story of the upcoming expansion.
      The first card revealed is a neutral Pirate:

      It's important to clarify that the Overkill effect triggers only on your turn (ie. when you attack and not when you are attacked) and this minion will draw you cards even if it dies as long as you Overkill something. Other than that, it feels slow for an aggro Pirate deck and its low Health means it can be killed easily. Perhaps it could make for a decent Arena card.
      The awesomely named second card of the day is Heavy Metal!

      Here is a spell with the Geosculptor Yip effect, at a reduced cost and minus the body. Interestingly enough, this card would have been better if it costed 5 or 7 mana since it would fit in Odd Warrior, a deck that heavily utilises armoring up. Even Warrior might become a thing in the future, but still with Yip never really having caught on, it's really hard to see this card fit into any Warrior deck.
      The blog post itself is interesting, since it gives an introduction to the lore of Rastakhan's Rumble. We see Rikkar - the aspiring Troll champion, who is also the protagonist of the Rumble Run - entering the Gurubashi Arena and trying to pick which team he is going to side with. The Tigers - the Paladin team - are described as the returning champions of Rastakhan's Rumble. We are eager to see what's next for this expansion!

      The Hearthstone subreddit interviewed Peter Whalen and Liv Breeden on the upcoming Rastakhan's Rumble expansion.
      You can read the entire interview here.
      Interview Highlights
      Rastakhan's Rumble has been in development for almost a year, from January 2018. Spirits will be appearing in the Arena. We won't see much of old Keywords in Rastakhan's Rumble, but they are open to revisiting them (Hero and highlander cards, Inspire and C'Thun were mentioned). One of the design lessons Team 5 has learned is that they want more build-around cards that have cheap rarity (like the Spirits). With Rastakhan's Rumble, they wanted classes to feel like a team. Captain Hooktusk, the Rogue champion, is an original Hearthstone character. Pirates are mostly in Rogue in this expansion. They are still pretty aggressive, but there are some more expensive pirates in this set.

      The reveal season for Rastakhan's Rumble starts with a Paladin card.
      Every recent Hearthstone expansion has had its own series of funny blog posts and videos. Blizzard collaborated with Wronchi in The Boomsday Project and now they are back for Rastakhan's Rumble.
      Hearthstone's heroes are waiting in line to get tickets to get into the Gurubashi Arena. Everyone has the gold for it, except from poor (literally) Uther. He does get a card reveal though and the story will be continued from what was teased in the end.

      People have been comparing this card to Evasion and Ice Block. It certainly has it pros and cons. You can play it proactively, even at high health and you can combine it perfectly with a weapon swing or powerful healing spells. On the other hand, Time Out! requires more setting-up and better game knowledge of what cards your opponent might have on his/her hand. This card could potentially go into a Control Paladin deck, along with Shirvallah, the Tiger legendary Loa minion.
      What do you think?

      The game client is now ready for the release of Rastakhan's Rumble next month. The new Classic cards have also been patched into the game.
      With the announcement of the Rastakhan's Rumble expansion during BlizzCon, the team was quick to patch it in the game in preparation for the December 4 release.

      Hearthstone is also celebrating reaching 100 million players. Log in between November 7-11 to receive 6 The Boomsday Project packs and repeatable Players Quests that you can complete with your friends.
      This patch finally adds the new Classic cards for Mage, Rogue and Warlock.


      The following card backs have been added to the game:
      Ready to Rumble – Acquired from a Rastakhan’s Rumble pre-purchase bundle.
      Frostwolf – Acquired from winning fives games in Ranked Play, December 2018.
      Good Cheer – Acquired from the Twitch cheer promotion.
      The Third War – Acquired from the Warcraft III: Reforged promotion.
      Lastly, the patch includes improvements to Hearthstone's mobile app and various bug fixes, which you can read here.

      Hearthstone has achieved a truly massively impressive feat, reaching 100 million players worldwide! That's a whole lot of turns being taken, ropes burned, minions summoned etc, so Blizzard are having a party to celebrate. Luckily for us, the party is for everyone! Starting Wednesday, November 7th and ending on the 10th, we're all getting 6 free Boomsday Project packs, as well as a potential 500 gold for playing friendly matches!

      *You’ll need to complete the introductory quests “First Blood” and “The Duelist” to unlock daily quests, (or “Ready for Action” if you’re a returning player).
