Hearthstone: Fibonacci's Other December Deck Revealed in Blizzard Spotlight

Blizzard have published a spotlight on ladder big hitter, Fibonacci. Fibonacci doesn't get sighted in many tournaments, but all serious ladder contenders will know that his mastery of Warrior is virtually unparalleled. This means that their interview is a rare insight into his thought process when making decks aimed at topping the ladder.

Being top three times, and in the top ten on two other occasions, means that his strategy is worth trying to decipher. What was interesting to me, was that he spends the whole month effectively preparing for the last day. He also mixed up his deck percentages in a 70%/30% split in December. I suspect that's a pattern that works well to make sure he plays the deck he thinks is the best, but is also far less exploitable by potential opponents. I would not be surprised if he uses the 70%/30% split a lot of the time.

His two decks from December are listed in the article. We previously covered his Warrior deck, so I have listed his Freeze Mage deck below.


This deck can be played using Sottle's Legendary Freeze Mage guide. The main changes being that the Malygos replaces Archmage Antonidas, and that Coldlight Oracle replaces Acolyte of Pain. The deck plays in the same way as the one in the guide, but the changes above mean that there is a little less fiddling around with mana to ping your own Acolyte, or to set up Fireballs from Antonidas. These are purely tech choices that suited Fibonacci, and you should be willing to try various versions to see what suits you and the meta you are playing against.

      The latest Hearthstone community contribution allows you to train the skills needed to master Combo Priest: quick thinking, fast mouse movements, strategic decisions and on-the-spot calculations. What's more to ask?!
      Combo or OTK or APM Priest is a reiteration of Combo and Vivid Nightmare Priest that was born with The Boomsday Project thanks to two cards: Topsy Turvy and Test Subject. Dog is credited as the creator and true master of the deck:
      Many have subsequently tried and failed to pilot the deck, which can require almost 100 moves during the 75 seconds of a single turn. Pro players like Trump and Thijs have hilariously failed, while others like Disguised Toast and Kolento kept trying until they got the hang of it.
      Right now, you might be dreading that you don't have the IQ to play this deck. Fear no more: everything can be practiced and Patashu has made the tool for it! Combo Priest Simulator allows you to practice the OTK combo on your browser, while also timing you. You can change the parameters of the starting gamestate, too.
      In all seriousness, the deck's winrate is below average and it's honestly too much trouble for too little gain. Then again, slamming your opponent's face for 100+ damage is quite satisfactory. It would be awesome if someone was brave enough to bring this deck at a tournament: it would be the casters' nightmare!
      Apart from Combo Priest Simulator, we have a guide for Topsy Turvy OTK Priest here on Icy Veins; the guide breaks down the necessary steps of the combo in a useful priority list. Alternatively, you can listen to Aleco trying to explain how the deck works to Patrick (and actually succeeding) in the latest Icy Veins Podcast!
