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

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.

      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!
