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.

      Various bosses from The Witchwood's Monster Hunt are ready to battle it out in this week's brand new Tavern Brawl.
      This is the first special Tavern Brawl that we will see during this year's Hallow's End.
      You just queue up and you get assigned a random boss from the Monster Hunt. Some of these bosses include:
      Azalina Soulthief (Hero Power: 2 mana - Summon three 1/1 Wisps) Blood Witch Greta (Passive Hero Power: Spells cost Health instead of Mana) Brushwood Centurion (Hero Power: 3 mana - All minions attack random enemy minions) Chupacabran (Hero Power: 1 mana - Give a friendly minion +1/+1 and Lifesteal) Plaguemaster Rancel (Hero Power: 2 mana - Deal 2 damage to a minion. If it survives, give it Poisonous) Shudderwock (Passive Hero Power - All Battlecries trigger twice) Winslow Tobtock (Hero Power: 2 mana - Each player shuffles their hand into their decks and draws that many cards) Wharrgarbl (Hero Power: 2 mana - Draw 3 Murlocs from your deck) Experiment 3C (Hero Power: 2 mana - Destroy a friendly minion and draw 3 cards) It's not sure how many bosses there are available, but they certainly have similar decks as during the PvE adventure. It might be worth checking our Monster Hunt guide to refresh your memory on some of their abilities or just experience them in action!

      Hallow's End is going to last from October 17 until October 31.
      As we've already discussed, you can log in to enjoy the spooky festivities and receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron.
      You will also get a free Arena entry ticket in order to test your mettle in the Dual Class Arena. Pick a Hero, choose the Hero Power of a second Hero and try to make the perfect mix with the combined might of both Heroes' class cards.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end: Monster Smash (October 17-22) and The Headless Horseman Rides Again (October 24 - 29)!
      Lastly, for a limited time you can purchase the new Paladin hero, Sir Annoy-o, as a Bundle along with 20 Witchwood packs at the price of $19.99 or 19.99 EUR. This mighty new hero even has his own backstory which you can read here.
      Later today, we should also see the balance changes go live.
    • By Zadina
      The update will take effect on October 18.
      Well, the balance changes were smaller than expected as only three cards were affected this time.
      As expected, Giggling Inventor was affected as it now costs 7 mana, up from 5. The team actually considered it too powerful for 6 mana, which raises the question why it was 5 mana in the first place. Anyway, it still remains an odd card if this is still relevant.

      Now, a big and unexpected change was Mana Wyrm being raised to 2 mana. The iconic Classic minion has undergone the Tunnel Trogg treatment and after 4+ years of power, it is ready to retire.

      And a Wild change to alleviate the devastating Druid combo: Aviana will now cost 10 mana. This means she can't be played at the same turn as Kun the Forgotten King and Juicy Psychmelon won't be able to draw both Kun the Forgotten King and Aviana with it.

      The update will go live on October 18th with the weekly reset. What do you guys think about the changes?

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!
