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!

      The targeted cards are Spiteful Summoner, Possessed Lackey, Call to Arms, Dark Pact, Crystal Core and Naga Sea Witch.
      The community's prayers have been answered as nerfs for six problematic cards have been announced.
      UPDATE - The nerfs went live earlier today. You can disenchant the affected cards and get full dust value until June 5, 2018.
      Four of these cards are Spiteful Summoner, Possessed Lackey, Call to Arms and Naga Sea Witch. Even though there were a lot of interesting suggestions as to how these cards could be handled, Team 5 chose the simplest, yet elegant, way to weaken them: increase their mana cost. The first three cards will have their mana cost increased by 1, whereas Naga Sea Witch will jump to an extreme 8 mana!
      Dark Pact will now restore 4 health to your hero, instead of 8. Lastly, Crystal Core will undergo a second nerf in its history: it will now produce 4/4 minions. Do you think it will survive even its second nerf like Unleash the Hounds or Sylvanas Windrunner did?
      Some of the cards that we know the team was considering changing, but will remain unscathed for now are Sunkeeper Tarim, Doomguard, Bloodreaver Gul'dan and Baku Paladin Hero Power.
      These changes will take effect after the end of the HCT playoffs at the end of May.
      Daxxarri
      In an update that will arrive some time after the HCT Playoffs are complete, we will be making balance changes to the following cards:
      Naga Sea Witch – Will cost 8 mana. (Up from 5)
      In update 9.1, we introduced a rule change to increase the consistency of Hearthstone game mechanics. The change affected precisely when Naga Sea Witch’s cost change was applied to cards. This allowed it to be combined with the cost reduction effects on giants, and as a result, it became fairly easy to reduce their mana cost to 0.
       
      We think Hearthstone is better all around when interactions are consistent, and we like the fact that a Naga Sea Witch giants deck archetype exists. That said, we also understand that, with its current functionality, this deck can generate early board states that are unreasonable for most classes to deal with. By increasing the cost of Naga Sea Witch to 8 mana, the deck’s concept remains intact, but the combo is delayed until later in a match when more decks are likely to have the tools to handle the arrival of so many giants.

      Spiteful Summoner – Will cost 7 mana. (Up from 6)
      After set rotation arrived with the Year of the Raven, Spiteful Summoner became more powerful and consistent when used in decks containing 10 mana cost spells. This is because the pool of 10 mana cost minions in Standard is smaller, so players could more reliably count on getting a powerful minion from Spiteful Summoner’s effect. Even considering the deckbuilding sacrifices that an effective Spiteful Summoner deck requires, we think that increasing the card’s mana cost to 7 is more in line with the powerful outcomes that are possible when it’s used alongside cards like Ultimate Infestation.

      Dark Pact – Will restore 4 Health. (Down from 8)
      There are two aspects of Dark Pact that make it powerful. At a cost of 1 mana, it’s easily used alongside cards like Carnivorous Cube, Possessed Lackey, and Spiritsinger Umbra for big combo turns. It also gives Warlocks enough healing potential so that aggressively using Lifetap and playing cards like Kobold Librarian and Hellfire feel less consequential. We left Dark Pact’s cost intact so it can still be used as part of interesting combos, but lessened the healing it provides so Warlocks will need to more carefully consider how much damage they take over the course of a match.

      Possessed Lackey – Will cost 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      Some of the card combos involving Possessed Lackey present situations that are too difficult to deal with in the early-to-mid stages of the game. Increasing its mana cost to 6 delays some of those powerful card combos to turns that are easier for opposing decks to overcome.

      Call to Arms – Will cost 5 mana. (Up from 4)
      Currently, there are three popular Paladin decks: Even Paladin, Murloc Paladin, and Odd Paladin. Among the three decks, Even Paladin and Murloc Paladin have consistently been the most powerful two archetypes over the first few weeks since the release of The Witchwood. Call to Arms moving to 5 mana restricts it from being used in Even decks and reduces its power somewhat when used in Murloc and other Paladin decks.
      We expect that players will experiment with Call to Arms at 5 mana in Odd Paladin decks, but we don’t expect this card to have much of an impact. This is because Odd Paladin can’t access 2 mana minions (meaning Call to Arms could only ever summon three 1 mana minions if played in that deck).

      Note: As a result of this change, we are adjusting the “Greymane’s Alliance” deck recipe. It will now have two copies of Saronite Chain Gang in place of Call to Arms.
      The Caverns Below – The quest reward, Crystal Core, will read: For the rest of the game, your minions are 4/4. (Down from 5/5)
      The Quest Rogue deck uses a strategy that’s strong against slow, control-heavy and fatigue decks, but struggles against most other deck archetypes. There’s a fine line between being powerful against very slow decks and being powerful versus virtually all non-aggressive strategies. By changing the quest reward to make the resulting minions 4/4 instead of 5/5, Quest Rogue should still be a reasonable option versus slow, extreme late-game decks, but offer a less polarized matchup with more moderate control decks.

      (source) Are you happy with these changes? Do you think some cards will still be playable or are all six cards useless now? What's your opinion on the unchanged cards?

      Confirmed today on the official Hearthstone blog, the upcoming balance patch will go live on May 22nd.
      Though the nerfs had been announced several days ago, a timeline had previously not been provided for when the nerfs would go live. For those who have yet hear, the following cards will be receiving nerfs:
      Naga Sea Witch will have its Mana cost increased from 5 to 8 Mana Spiteful Summoner will have its Mana cost increased from 6 to 7 Mana Dark Pact will restore 4 Health instead of 8 health Possessed Lackey will have its Mana cost increased from 5 to 6 Mana Call to Arms will have its Mana cost increased from 4 to 5 Mana Crystal Core will turn minions into 4/4s instead of 5/5s
