Is there a reason this deck doesn't include a second mirror entity?  With the number of druids you see on the ladder I would think that it would be better then a second flame cannon.

Yes, there a lot of druids, but also face hunters, aggro shamans and whatnot. You can surely include a second Entity if you face a lot of druids though.

There's a note in card swaps stating that you can use any combination of Mirror, Duplicate or Counterspell. I'd prefer Mirror too, but I can see the usefulness of the other two.

Any tips against the current LoE priest deck? That is the only match up that seems impossible. Lightbomb destroys the early minions and I see no way around losing Antonidas and Dr boom to entomb >_<

Two Mad scientist with only two secrets - outcome is like like 75% of the games you are lucky if one of it has its deathratle bonus.

 

The text must be updates properly with the changes:

Counterspell is included as a 3rd Secret

you have 2 secrets in the deck

extra spells generated by Spellslinger

No Spellslinger in the deck.. and etc.

 

I will try swapping one of the Mad scientist for third secret and might swap the Water elemental for Emperor

what can we replace a mad scientist with?

Do you not have it? Because if you do I strongly recommend running him.

If you don't have Mad Scientists, run this deck.

Any replacement for arcane blasts? Only missing them

You can run a second Mirror Entity and either a Mirror Image or A Polymorph: Boar. I'm running a different variation of this and I'm only running one Arcane blast but I have the above cards that I had suggested in mine and it is working fine.

I did very well with this deck last month, but as of this season I am getting completely destroyed by the new decks in the meta. Anybody else experiencing this? Any tips?

As for Secret pally, you will just have to learn how to trigger secrets and when you should use burn spells on face or when to use them to remove minions.

As for Renodecks, don't use burn spells on face until you have lethal. If you just spam spells on his face, he will heal and you will lose.

The deck is useless without them. If you really want to try this deck out though, you could try this deck and add a second Arcane Blast or a Pyroblast in the place of Tony.

i would go for loatheb or emperor thaurissan.

 

Loatheb is situational, depends on what decks u are facing.

Emperor Thaurissan is more standard, he is gonna speed up the fireball harvesting with Archmage Antonidas and let you finish the game quicker, as mrSottle states in the card swap section.

I gotta say, this deck does extremely well.  I have everything except for Dr. Boom (Thaurissan instead) and a 2nd Arcane Blast (Shade of Nax instead) and I've gone to rank 10 in about 3 days.  I'll see how high I can get in the rankings, but this has been great fun regardless.

 

Just wanted to give Sottle kudos.

I'm using tempo mage as listed.  I've been having a lot of problems against all flavors of Warlock lately (~33% win rate). 

Is this a particular weakness for tempo mage or can anyone provide some overall guidance for how I should be approaching zoo and handlock?

I'm having a decent amount of success with this deck (60-70% win rate up to rank 5 last season); however an issue I semi-often encounter is drawing my Secrets before getting my Mad Scientists, resulting in a tempo loss as I am left with a substandard 2-drop which can no longer put secrets into play. Do you think that running two Mad Scientists for two secrets might be too many, or that the tempo gain when they are played in "good conditions" outweighs the tempo loss when the draw works against me?

If I were to aim to drop one of the Mad Scientists, what would be a good substitution? A low cost drop/spell to help with the early game, or Emperor to help gain tempo in the late game?

Edited by Morthasa
Specified that the win rate applied to last season

You can probably play Bloodmage Thalnos or Cult Sorcerer instead, but he truth is Mad Scientist is secretly the strongest card in your deck. It's a 2 mana card that casts a 3 mana card for free and that card is supposed to replicate an effect of even greater cost spell = busted efficiency. 

Thaurissan is a bad idea because you're not stock on cards in the late game, you have a better option in Faceless Summoner and he does not gain you the revered tempo unless very specific circumstances are met.

I agree, that was never in question, my point is that, with only two secrets in the deck, I have equal chance of drawing as secret as a Scientist, and upon drawing a secret, one Scientist has effectively become a (semi) dead card. That is not the case for decks which run multiple secrets (such as 2x Ice Block and 2x Ice Barrier) where there is a good chance you'll still have secrets in your deck upon drawing your Scientists.

@MorthasaLet's say that Mad Scientist himself is worth 1.5 mana. With two Mad Scientist, you have a chance to get both Mad Scientists before your secrets for insane value of 9 mana for just 4 mana. With one Mad Scientist, you get 7.5 for 5 mana if you are lucky. This means you get "free" 5 mana instead of 2.5 mana if you get lucky.
Now, if you draw one of the two secrets before one of 2 Mad Scientists, you still get 9 mana value with 7 mana paid. This is still very good.
The worst case scenario for 2 Mad Scientists is 9 mana value for 10 mana paid, and for one Mad Scientist you get 7.5 mana value for 8 mana paid. One mana loss for a chance of getting 5 mana value is still very good.
If I do some very inaccurate and overly simplified math, I get 146% value from running 2 Mad Scientist, and "only" 131% value from running one Mad Scientist. So, it is better to have 2 Mad Scientists instead of one in terms of secrets value.

      Blood-Queen Lanathel is a new legendary Warlock card that was just revealed via PCGamesN.
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out here.
      Warlock's Blood-Queen Lana'thel
      The new Legendary Warlock card synergizes with Cruel Dinomancer and cards like Doomguard, Soulfire up to Malchezaar's Imp & Silverware Golem. It doesn't even have Charge and due to ist high mana cost it cannot be deployed early.

      Two more cards from Knights of the Frozen expansion were revealed and Blizzard communicated why there was just a single card reveal before that. The cards are Ice Breaker and Plague Scientist.
      Three card reveals were scheduled for today and the reveal for the second and third card was delayed and the reason is that those reveals were all with partners that couldn't make it happen today due to various reasons.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We originally had a few more card reveals for today, but the card reveals were all with partners and they unfortunately couldn't happen today due to a variety of issues. But good news! There will be two more card reveals tonight, so please look forward to them. There will also be more card reveals happening every day this week! The first card that was revealed is the Ticking Abomination and here are the next two:
      Shaman's Ice Breaker
      Ice Breaker will synergize well with Frost Shock and we'll have to see Freeze effects of other cards first to determine its usefulness and full potential. Ice Breaker will be good for minion removal combined with Glacial Shard. For now, the card looks better than Shatter.

      Picture is a courtesy of Hearthpwn
      Rogue's Plague Scientist
      Provides Rogues with much needed board clear (hard removal). Synergizes well with Tentacle of N'Zoth, Wild Pyromancer. On the other hand for Constructed, it competes with Vilespine Slayer and SI:7 Agent that both seem to be better choices.

      The first card since the initial annoucement for Knights of the Frozen Throne has been revealed by C4mlann earlier this morning.
      Let's take a look at the first KotFT card officially revealed by C4mlann.

       
      Blizzard kicks off the reveal with a card that seems unplayable in all currently popular decks, and subpar in arena. Although some players have suggested silence priest as a potential target, Ticking Abomination is actually detrimental to play without a form of silence in hand, unlike other popular silence targets. The caveat here is that since this is one the first card revealed, we don't actually know what's in store. Might there be a way to transfer Deathrattle effects to enemy minions? Will KotFT control decks play no minion before turn 5? One potential use for this one might lie in "forcing" your opponent to trigger your own Deathrattle effects with a high value card, but we'll have to wait and see. We might even see something that gives Deathrattle effects Lifesteal, the expansion's new mechanic, for some minion-based healing.
      For more information, please check out our guide to the new Hearthstone expansion.
