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.

      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: 1 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!
