Just a small note: I think pyroblast and torch are not good cards to omit from this version of the deck if you want to add some tech options. They might be optional in regular freeze mage, but they are super important in this particular version, as you are esentially reliant on drawing alex if you don't have them, and that is not good. I would say novice is the most flexible card. I currently run one novice and one loot hoarder, and think it's just a matter of taste, as novice is a better draw late game and loot hoarder can give you some board presence early on to slow down aggro decks a bit and getting in some chip damage with it can help out loads against decks like renolock.

 

By the way, I just faced a druid that used both lores for drawing and loatheb at a completely random turn only to get burned from 25 hp with discounted spells on turn 10. It's sad to see that someone who plays the game that badly can get rank 5 with a druid deck.

I feel like I'm missing something with this deck. Is it just me or does it feel incredibly draw dependent? I've given it a pretty good shot now, but it feels like I'm just loaded up with useless damage spells regardless of my luck in the mulligan. 

 

I've never once played a doomsayer / freeze combo that hasn't just been immediately silenced or burned down. Once that happens, you are completely at the mercy of a full board against you with no way to answer it. 

 

It's not that I've never won with the deck, but it seems to be completely random and the win condition combos just seem incredibly lucky when they actual occur.

 

Can anyone point me to a place where I can see this specific deck being played with a good win ratio?

Against decks that commonly play 2-of silence cards you can't rely on getting a nova sayer combo. It's usually better to just play a tempo sayer early on to prevent them from developing minions and delay them.

 

Also, freeze mage is easily one of the hardest decks in the game, so don't give up if you can't win with it at first. The deck is so complex that even usually favored match ups(secret paladin, zoo,...) are hard to win until you come to grips with the deck.

Would you still consider this version of Freeze mage the best one for the meta now that Mid Range Druid - cited as one of the reasons for this particular build - got nerfed so heavily?

Would anyone have tips on how to play the mirror with this deck?

I run so rarely into it on ladder - probably a good thing - but would like to know what to do when I do. I thing with the more classical versions with Healbot (or even Reno Jackson) the best strategy is to play very defensively, often going to fatigue. Here, though, I am not so sure.

      The Americas Region HCT Spring Playoffs will take place over the weekend of 27-28 May 2017.
      The HCT Spring playoffs for the Europe region was completed last weekend, with Hoej, Kolento, Neirea, and Rdu qualifying for the Global Championship next month.
      This weekend is the turn of the Americas region, and the reaction last week is that many players have submitted very greedy control decks in their lists. The players who have submitted the greediest lists will be well placed in the control mirror matches, but those same players will need to dodge the handful of Aggro lineups that are out there.
      To find out if your favourite player has qualified, you can check the standings here. The top 64 and ties made it to the main event, along with 8 Tavern Heroes. The event can be seen on the official Twitch channel from 8am PDT on Day One and 9am PDT on Day Two.

      The Europe Spring Playoffs and Championship took place over the weekend of May 20-21, which decided not only the new Europe Champion, but also the four players who would represent Europe at the Global Spring Championship in Shanghai next month.
      After seven rounds of Swiss, the top eight players cut to a knockout phase. The results of which were as follows:
        Hoej beat   FibEli3
        Neirea beat   INER
        Rdu beat   Casie
        Kolento beat   StanCifka
      This means that Hoej, Neirea, Rdu, and Kolento will represent Europe in the Global Championship. The top eight being so strong is a sign that the metagame is in a healthy place. All of the players were already known to be among the best in Europe, and despite their lineups differing substantially, they were still able to make it through.
      Hoej went on to take the title, beating Kolento 3-0 in the final. Hoej has been touted as one of the best players in Europe for some time, but traditionally has brought Control decks to major events. This time around, he brought a very aggressive lineup, and was rewarded for his willingness to adapt his style to the meta.
      The deck archetypes that each player brought to the event are listed below:
      Hoej: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
      Kolento: Jade Druid, Midrange Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Neirea: Jade Druid, Discover Mage, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Rdu: Aggro Druid, Face Hunter, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      The next four players to qualify for the Global Championship will be decided next week, with the Americas Spring Championships.

      The Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) European Spring Playoffs will take place this weekend, 20-21 May 2017.
      This will be the first playoff event since Journey to Un'Goro was released, and so if anyone has saved any surprise deck tech, this is the event where it will be revealed.
      The top 64 point earners, and ties, from the EU server will be joined by 8 Tavern Hero tournament qualifiers for the event, which will be played in esports bars across Europe. If you want to attend one of the events to cheer on your local favourite, the list of locations can be found here. There will be side events for anyone wishing to attend, with Blizzard prizes available for winners, and the Power Core cardback for all attendees.
      The point standings, showing the top 64, can be found here. As usual the event is stacked with many of the big names from the region. The top four will advance to the HCT Spring Global finals next month.
