Hey! I have loved freeze mage since I started Hearthstone! I believe Reno makes it even more fun. I have collected every card except for Bloodmage Thanes. As you can guess, my question to you is what I should replace him with in THIS deck. Normally I would put a second loot horder but that wouldn't be great synergy with Reno. I'm thinking that maybe Kobold is better in this deck. Thanks for your time, keep it up and have a great day!

Hey! Isn't it mistake, that this deck contains double cards? I may be wrong but i think Reno works only if you have exactly one copy of each card, and on list that is 2 x Doomsayer, Ice Lance and so on...

Those cards that are in your hand or have been played, are not in your deck, thus Reno can be activated. This is also explained in the deck's description :)

Minor confusion in the card swap section (Loot Horder vs Novice Engineer).

 

Btw: What do you think about coldlight oracle as a sub for either of these?

I can't really see the problem. There is one Hoarder in the deck, no Novice Engineers and the swap part talks about swapping the Loot Hoarder for an Explosive Sheep.

Coldlight Oracle is really risky, but can pay off. I would still prefer Loot Hoarder.

"Novice Engineer and Explosive Sheep are fairly interchangeable. If you are facing more aggression, then the Explosive Sheeps are preferred in order to control the board early. If you are facing more Control, then the Loot Hoarders are more beneficial to help you cycle through your deck faster."

 

The link above goes to the regular freeze mage deck, where there is no novice engineer at all, and not the one with Reno. So the Loot horder should stay in the Reno deck and the question is whether to chance the novice engineer for a sheep. The second sentence is probably a copy paste error from the original deck. As I said, just minor ;-)

Any thoughts what I could replace the Pyroblast with? I do own the card, but almost all the time it is just sitting in my hand doing nothing.

 

Possible candidates i could think of:

- A second Fireball. Probably the option most synergistic with the rest of the deck, it has the disadvantage of reducing Reno Jackson's activation chance.

- A second Forgotten Torch. Nearly the same pros and cons as the second Fireball.

- Azure Drake. Cycles. Might draw some attention away from the hero. If it lives the spell damage bonus is a nice perk.

- Gnomish Inventor. Basic principle as Azure Drake, but cheaper and with less of an upside.

 

Or do I just need to practice more to discover Pyroblast's true potential?

Pyroblast is often really good and if it isn't and justs sits in your hand, you shouldn't really worry about it because you should have full hand of other cards that can be played. I am quite happy with Pyroblast, it is just about using your spells in specific order, but no need to try to play them in a specific order, it is just something that sometimes randomly happens.

If Pyroblast is sat in your hand a lot, you're probably missing opportunities to use it. Spending a turn Pyroblasting your opponent in the face when you have an Ice Block up is one of the key turns in Freeze Mage quite often, i'd find it hard to believe that you haven't run into the situation where it's correct.

Hi Vlad, 

the link does not lead to Reno Jackson Freeze, it leads to usual Freeze Mage instead. Would you please fix it?

Thanks!

Is it wise to play malygos as a replacement for alexstrexa? For i do not own it.

 

I guess, but it definitely feels weird. Not really sure about it. Try it and if it doesn't work, try an Explosive Sheep instead.

I thought I would share some of the card swaps I've done. They work pretty well now that I have Pyroblast, but it's still not great since I don't have 2 big damage cards. (No Alex)

Most of my replacements are just for the 2nd copy of a card. 

 

Ice Block  - replaced with mirror image

Archmage Antonidas - replaced with Saraad

Bloodmage Thalnos - replaced with Azure drake

Doomsayer x2 - replaced with Flame Leviathan & Mad bomber 

 

-Flame Leviathan is a super funny card to have in this deck. Since you are playing conservatively, but drawing thru your deck, this one usually just kills a bunch of their minions. It doesn't help much if you get it in the mulligan though.

Hey guys

Just wondering as I'm missing 1 doomsayer, 1 ice block, bloodmage thalnos and Alexstraza would good substitutes be Explosive Sheep, Animated Armour, Kobold Geomancer and to replace Alexstraza maybe a healbot or Chromaggus? I have all expansions

I have the second doomsayer, ice block and Alexstraza now- what can I replace Pyroblast with? I agree with the above comment saying Azure Drake, Gnomish Inventor or a second fireball are ideal- at this stage thinking the second fireball is the best option

I played this Deck for 4 days now and i am still stuck at Rank 20. Sometimes its fun, most of the time it is really frustrating.

In a case like this, you're most likely doing something very wrong :P You could record your games with plays.tv and we'd be more than happy to review them.

      Four new Mech minions were spoiled as details about the Magnetic keyword were explained and demonstrated in a short video.
       
      Many questions about Magnetic were answered in today's Hearthside Chat as four new Mech cards (three with Magnetic) were revealed in the video:
       
       
      Announced in the video were details on how the Magnetic mechanic will work in game. If a minion with Magnetic is played to right of another Mech minion, then the minion will be played as-is and the two minions will not fuse together. To "activate" Magnetic and fuse two Mechs together, you will need to play a minion with Magnetic to the left of a Mech minion on the board. It was also announced the Hunter, Paladin, and Warrior will be the three classes that focus on the Magnetic keyword, and there will be Neutral Magnetic minions as well.
      So, what kind of giant robots will we be assembling in The Boomsday Project? First, we get Wargear:
       

       
      As Stephen Chang pointed out in the video, 5 Mana for 5/5 worth of stats is the same rate as Blessing of Kings! Wargear will turn any Mech into an instant threat, and will surely be a key card in any aggressive Mech deck. Though the card is far from impressive when played without Magnetic, we've seen time and time again just how powerful it is to add stats to the board which you can immediately use to attack (Bonemare, Fungalmancer).
       

       
      If you're looking for a good target for Wargear's massive stat boost, look no further than Upgradeable Framebot. 2 Mana for 6 total stats is an incredible deal, which should make Upgradeable Framebot a plug-and-play 2 drop in any Mech deck. The fact that this minion has a low Attack should not scare aggro decks away from it, as the 5 Health makes it incredible target for minion buffs.
       

       
      Our first Warrior card with Magnetic is Beryllium Nullifier, which doesn't excite me as much as the previous two cards. Adding 3/8 and "Can't be targeted by spells or Hero Powers" to any minion makes it nearly impossible for anything but a Vilespine Slayer or Voodoo Doll to kill, but 7 Mana is a huge ask for tempo decks. Magnetic appears to be an aggressive ability by nature, which makes me skeptical about the need for a 7 Mana card which only adds 3 attack the turn it comes down. Beryllium Nullifier seems better suited for a "Big Mech" deck, so we'll have to wait and see which other cards get spoiled before writing this one off.
       

       
      Last but not least is Zilliax, the walking keyword! This guy has a keyword for every point of Mana he costs, and a few of these keywords are highly desirable ones. Even if Zilliax didn't have Magnetic, he still might be a reasonable card for the fact that he can trade into any 3 Health minion with his Divine Shield and Rush while gaining you 3 life with his Lifesteal, then stick around on the board with his Taunt after he is done. Is this the card that Town Crier has been waiting for? The Lifesteal and Rush also make him a great target for Countess Ashmore in slower decks. I have a hard time imagining a world where Zilliax doesn't see quite a bit of play in the new meta!
      What do you think about these four new Mech cards? Let us know in the comment section, and be sure to check out our Boomsday Project Hub for more information on the upcoming expansion.

      Quest rewards from today until July 30th will be doubled during the triumphant return of the Midsummer Fire Festival!
       
      Just in time for the upcoming Hearthstone expansion on August 7th, the Midsummer Fire Festival will reward double the gold for all quests completed from now until July 30th.
      Much like last year's festival, Ragnaros has come to "CURE US OF BOREDOM" by bringing us some fresh Hearthstone content. Announced in today's post were new emotes and a new Tavern Brawl, but we can probably also expect a number of daily login surprises if this year's festival is anything like last year's. Expect to hear plenty of amusing dialogue when you log in to Hearthstone over the next few weeks, including plenty of jabs at Ahune the frost elemental.

      A new Shaman card was revealed in today's blog post, which shed light on the backstory behind The Boomsday Project.
      A new Shaman card was revealed today on the official Blizzard blog in a post titled The Boomsday Project: Lab Logs Part 1:

       
      A 2/2 Elemental isn't quite worth 2 Mana, while the Battlecry effect on Menacing Nimbus isn't quite worth 1 Mana. Together, the 2 effects add up to a card which likely provides you with more than 2 Mana of value, which makes Menacing Nimbus a playable card in my opinion. If there's an Elemental Shaman deck in the new meta, I expect Menacing Nimbus to be a valuable curve-filler in it.
       

       
      It's hard to say whether the most exciting part of today's post was the new card, or the amount of backstory, hidden clues, and new art which was provided for The Boomsday Project. I'm sure that someone smarter than myself can decode today's post to discover a number of things about the upcoming expansion.

      This Mage Legendary card was revealed in collaboration with Wronchi!
      If you remember from the expansion announcement video, Hearthstone's developers were sucked into Netherstorm and it's up to Levi the intern to rescue them! As he ventures into Boom Labs, he encounters Stargazer Luna.
      The video was made by Wronchi Animations, who have created many beloved and hilarious Hearthstone cartoons. There's probably going to be a second part, so expect more card reveals!
      Now, let's talk about the card itself.

      With a Netherstorm expansion, one would expect that the magnificent Kael'thas would have been the Mage Legendary. Instead, we get Stargazer Luna which is a very interesting card with a decent statline. She can complement perfectly Aggro/Burn Mage, but you could perhaps find her in Minion-based Mage decks: mostly Murloc Mage, but maybe Elemental Mage as well. She has potentially better tempo than Aluneth, but is more risky. You obviously don't want to play her on turn 3. Let the topdeck wars begin!
      The reveal schedule is unclear at the moment, but it should go as with previous expansions: an initial reveal livestream on July 23, followed by roughly two weeks of card reveals by community sites and personalities, then a final stream before The Boomsday Project releases on August 7.
