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!

2-i am the  worst player to run the  mage class

      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.

      Well, after the failed interview with Ben Brode and his dreams of being a Hearthstone developer squashed, the Lord of the Scourge decided to prove himself an accomplished entrepreneur and take what he's naturally good at - making ice - and adding cream. And so, behold the new ICC, Arthas' latest wondrous edifice: the Ice Cream Citadel.
      Of course, true to form, Blizzard took this little in-joke all the way and will have the Ice Cream Citadel, an actual ice cream shop, at the Petco Park Interactive Zone in San Diego near San Diego Comic-Con®, featuring two flavors: Villain-illa and Scourgeberry Sorbet.

      Greetings, mortal whelps!
      As part of my efforts to prove to the accursed Brode that I possess the necessary experience to command the Hearthstone development team, I have decided to expand my efforts to all aspects of mortal enterprise.
      At first I considered peddling power and vengeance, but according to my focus testing, the foremost human craving seems to be for cold, creamy, sweetened sludge. I have decided to create a frozen-cream sugar-ooze unlike any you have ever tasted. You will desire it.
      Prepare yourselves for the grand opening of Ice Cream Citadel, a fortress of refreshment in the scorching heat that afflicts this place. I will be on hand to personally help you conquer the heat with free ice cream. You need spend no money for your first taste of my power.
      Choose from an endless selection of TWO flavors:

      Behold my tasteful brochure:

      Attend the Petco Park Interactive Zone in San Diego near San Diego Comic-Con® and be guided to your just desserts by this map:

      You may also take photographs of me with no immediate fear of retribution. Share proof of your delicious ice cream conquests on social media using the #icecreamcitadel “hashtag,” whatever that means.
      Begin preparations for your journey now. Ice Cream Citadel will receive supplicants between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. PDT July 20 through July 22, and 9:00 am to 5:00 pm PDT on July 23.

      Hearthstone Game Director Ben Brode did an AMA on reddit yesterday and here's a summary with the most interesting highlihts.
      Blizzard didn't want to reveal 1 card a day for the new expansion, because the feedback they were getting was that hype was slowing down as they got closer to the expansion. Cards will be revealed on July 24. They would like to make Handlock a thing again, but Brode's worried with their ability to make Handlock insane in Standard going forward, with new cards, without pushing it into insanity in Wild. It can be done in Wild by moving cards that are buffing it, or by making entirely new cards in Standard that are good in both formats.  When asked about free cards on a weekly rotation, Brode said they wouldn't be doing it due to its complexity, but the team is exploring other options with similar, less complex goals. The team internally experiments with various formats to keep the game fresh e.g. by changing the ladder format for the last month of a set. Each class will have a hero card and a legendary minion in Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion. New ladder experience is in the works with the goals to reduce the monthly grind for top-level players, increase progression for bottom 25% of player, better match-making and improve new player ranked experience. Hearthstone won't be coming to consoles anytime soon. Ice Block is a card that matches their red flags for cards that shouldn't be in Standard forever. They will continue to add more features to the collection manager. The team will make a new Druid and Warlock hero. Regarding Tyrande, the goal was to find alternative ways for regions that were not eligible for the offer to get access to Tyrande and they've been working with their regional offices to make it happen. More minion-placement cards will be added to the game. Blizzard's working on a way to provide more stats to players, but Brode doesn't like "profile" pages. The main goals with the upcoming ladder rework are Reduce grind for top-level players Increase progression for players stuck at rank 20-ish Get better matchmaking for bottom 25% players Make experience better for new players The biggest challenging is making those things better without losing what they like about the current system. Specating mode is definitely a place with a lot of room for improvement. New opportunities are on the horizon to earn packs of the new set through upcoming events and single-player missions that will be free with the new set. They're going to bring back Wild cards for sale, which should make Wild more accessible. No plans to add another class, they have plans for more unique things for Warlocks and a 10th class wouldn't be helpful. The time should be spent to make the core classes more fun. Adding the Hall of Fame in Un'Goro and hitting those 6 cards allowed them to see the "freshest" meta yet.  Changes to arena rewards are coming. Details TBA. Hero cards are a new thing that replaces your hero, not transforms them. (Source)
