I do not have either Bloodmage Thalnos nor Malygos, can I use the 3/2 c'thun card (+1spelldmg) instead of Bloodmage, and Sylvannas instead of Malygos?

Yes, but the deck will suffer quite a lot.

Umm, this is most certainly not a Reno deck... More than 1 copy of any card means his trigger never goes off? Is this is a mistake in the decklist?

The deck runs very high amount of card draw, so it is quite likely that you will draw your duplicate cards and then drop Reno Jackson

Hi. I was wondering if this deck is viable in terms of reaching legend and being somewhat competitive. Also do you see this deck standing strong in the long run in future expansions? Or is this deck a one hit wonder?

Yes, this deck can reach legend, but is more reliant on luck than the regular freeze mage. As for future expansions, it is really hard to tell. Like, zoo was supposed to lose strength because of loss of Nerubian EggHaunted Creeper, nerf of cards and so on, but it is actually stronger than it was before. My personal guess is that it will weaken a bit because it won't get many (if any) new cards for it, whereas other decks will get cards that make those decks better.

What a waste of time and dust this deck is.

It's too unbalanced.
At round 5 you still need to play Acolyte of Pain for get some cards. In the meanwhile the enemy already have put 6 minions on the board and done 15-20 damage.

And even if you play Frost Nova + Doomsayer on next rounds, the opponent always have some sort of magic card for fuck up this strategy.

When you are good to start playing, you have 5 health.
Also, there are always some sort of duplicate that doesn't show up, doesn't allowing to play Reno.

I was at rank 18 with 2 stars in ladder before start building this deck. Now I'm at 20 with 0 stars.
My winrate is 3 win 13 lose.

I'm playing from just 1 month... but I never tried a deck so weak, it's really horrible.

@AcceleratorFreeze mage is actually one of the hardest decks to play, and that is probably the cause of your problems with the deck. Could you please post some replays of you playing the deck, so we can help you improve with the deck, or know what cards to change to make the deck more effective, in case we won't find any misplays.

Any replacements for archmage or alex?

For both? You might be better off looking at a different type of deck to play. 

If you want replacements, try Pyroblast. Definitely try to get Alexstrazsa though.

I wouldn't bother playing any form of Freeze Mage without Alexstraza. Antonidas, on the other hand, is mostly good for upping your winrate against Warriors from, like, 10% to 40%. Given that Warriorstone is over and we are now living in the age of Shamanstone, I don't feel like Antonidas is worth running anymore. And I haven't had a game where I wished I had Pyroblast in ... forever. Here's my current list:

2 Ice Lance
1 Mirror Image
Bloodmage Thalnos
2 Doomsayer
2 Frostbolt
2 Loot Hoarder
2 Novice Engineer
2 Acolyte of Pain
2 Arcane Intellect
2 Forgotten Torch
2 Frost Nova
1 Ice Barrier
2 Ice Block
1 Cone of Cold
2 Fireball  
2 Blizzard  
Emperor Thaurissan
Alexstraza

Pretty much this. Alex is a HUGE part of the gameplay, both offensively and defensively. She's the card that you sit there and go: "I wish I could draw Alex right now".

Almost everybody can outlast this deck, because of the amount of healing cards. And Malygos is worth nothing since you mostly only get 1 discount out of Emperor. You have to be down right lucky, to actually get any wins out of this deck..

Or, you just need to make sure you are playing around the healing correctly. The only thing that should be able to outheal Alexstrazsa into burst would be Warrior, due to armour. You just need to budget your clears well. If you waste them too early, you'll lose.

Swap suggestion, Malygos -> Evolved Kobold for slightly more flexiblity in terms of burst after ET discount.

You need a much bigger combo to actually win if you make this swap. You can't use spells to clear as freely and you'll probably end up dying before you draw everything. With Maly, you can use Torch/Fireball to clear comfortably.

      The full reveal video can be found below here. Devilsaur Egg & Nerubian Egg have a new friend.

      Warrior's Animated Berserker
      Dog Thief revealed a new Warrior card today. It seems Enrage decks will be popular this expansion (looking at you Grommash Hellscream).

    • By L0rinda

      Blizzard's Lead Mission Designer, Dave Kosak, has released a video discussing how Missions will work in Knights of the Frozen Throne.
      Missions are the replacement for Adventures, which everyone will be able to attempt when the new set is released. The idea behind them is to be able to explain the lore behind the cards, without forcing people to do the content who are not interested in it.
      There is a lot of interesting information in the video, but the key takeaway is that there will be an alternate Paladin Hero, Arthas, awarded to anyone who can defeat the Lich King with all nine classes.
      At the end of the video, three more cards are revealed from the upcoming expansion:

      Bolvar is an interesting card in that it will be a 3/7 after it loses its own Divine Shield. This means that it will need to get very little value from its ability in order to be very large indeed. It does feel like a build-around card however, and it might be that Divine Shield Paladin is just not as powerful as current archetypes. There are already plenty of ways to build that style of deck, and none are seeing regular play. I am not sure that Bolvar, Fireblood improves the Divine Shield archetype enough to force it to the forefront.

      Light's Sorrow has some of the same issues that Bolvar has, although it needs to get very few activations over the course of its lifetime to be a playable weapon. I expect this to be tested heavily in the first few days of the new meta.

      Corpsetaker seems like a fun card. It should be easy enough to gain most of the keywords, which will make it a very difficult card to deal with. It should be noted that the keywords are only gained if those words are on the cards remaining in the deck. Depending on how easy it turns out to be to get every keyword onto the card, this could be a reasonable card in slower decks where the Taunt and Lifesteal are relevant.

      The twenty-third and twenty-fourth cards have been revealed. Both are Epic minions, one for Hunter and one for Druid.
      At seven Mana, Stitches Archer, or Abominable Bowman Archer has to compete with Volcanosaur for the slot. It also seems that Savannah Highmane does the same thing more reliably.

      (Source: Hearthpwn)
      That being said, there are plenty of Deathrattle options available for N'Zoth, the Corruptor to bring back in Hunter now, and if a slow enough deck can be made to work, this would be a great fit in such a deck.
      Fatespinner
      Fatespinner introduces a new mechanic, which should add an element of intrigue to the game. The lack of disguised information has been a complaint of many players since the dawn of Hearthstone. Fatespinner takes a first step into that world, and if successful as a mechanic, it should add a new layer of complexity and bluff to the game.

      As for the card itself, it has poor stats for its Mana cost, and seems to not have the greatest of effects. However, this is Druid we are talking about, and Druid having the ability to deal 3 damage to all minions, albeit slowly, should not be treated lightly. Sherazin, Corpse Flower was underrated by reviewers in the previous set, and is somewhat similar in that it was hard to assess how much value would be gained from its ability. I feel that this card might see play for the first Deathrattle ability, but more importantly, the very existence of a new secret mechanic should be good for the game as the design team explore it further.

      Professor Putricide has been revealed by DDaHyoNi.
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out on our Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion hub.
      Bring it On!

      This card is quite the surprise, and the second in the set seemingly designed to punish spell-heavy/combo decks. Whether this is viable depends entirely on the meta at hand, of course, but there is intricate synergy at play here between Dirty Rat and Shield Slam; pull a minion out, thus avoiding the downside of reducing its cost, then slam it right in for a mighty 10 damage. Could it also be used to bait board swarms for an impending Brawl? I like it.
      Coldwraith

      Considering mages are very lacking in the 3-drop department, we may be looking at a new mage staple here, especially considering how popular Frostbolt and Primordial Glyph currently are. The revealed mage death knight card also seems to promote the use of Water Elemental, furthering your ability to get value out of the Freeze-related effect. Might Freeze mages even consider running this? Probably, since their game plan is all about... well, Freezing and drawing. Pretty cool card, if I may.

      Naiman_hs just revealed Voodoo Hexxer.
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out on our Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion hub.
      Voodoo Hexxer

      Water Elemental's big sister, Voodoo Hexxer is very likely to find a place in any control-oriented shaman deck. Along the new weapon, it seems like the shaman class is being pushed towards Freezing. Stat-wise, Voodoo Hexxer is not all that great for cost, but it fulfills its purpose: it's hard to remove, it'll stall decks that rely on swarming, and even works against weapons. In control matchups, Voodoo Hexxer becomes a form of pseudo removal, especially when coupled with the aforementioned weapon.
