Cutting edge technology is finally upon us!

As much as I loathe Yogg'Saron's very existence, there is simply nothing else for me to say other than "play this deck".

Powerful offensive capabilities? Check.

Reactive enough? Check.

Has a game against Zoo, Shaman and even Warrior? Check, check and check.

Also feats hilarious/frustrating free wins/losses that make our beloved game so exciting. (PJSalt)

For the sake of ladder diversity and your own game experience, play this deck. Or at least give it a try ;)

Im actually getting a bit jealous watching everyone play this deck.

I vowed to never craft yogg since i thought he would never be an actual competitve card. Seems as i was wrong!

 

Praise our lord and savior Yogg Sarron !!!!!!!!

I only have 75 dust and I'm missing 1 arcane blast. Is it better if I substitute it for forbidden flame, forgotten torch, or polymorph?

Polymorph against control, second Flamestrike against aggro.

It's an all-or-nothing deck. If you have manaworm from the start and your opponent cannot counter it, you have a decent chance to win. Otherwise it's a certain loss. All together, it's a very weak deck.

This was the first deck I tried after crafting Yogg-Saron, Hope's End 3 days ago, so I didn't even know how to play it properly, and yet I was able to get 19-14, which is, at least, acceptable. An important thing to know when playing tempo mage is resource management. Many players I face don't really care about it and just spam spells, but that causes them to run out of steam fairly quickly and lose. Try watching a few videos and see when players decide to keep their spells in hand and when they decide to play some spells.

The key thing about this deck as positiv says is resource management. This is a tempo deck not an all in face deck.

When climbing the ranks you will notice a lot of experienced tempo mages holding on to their resources, often passing turn one and just hero powering turn 2, in order to have an explosive turn with Flamewaker which will get them back in the game. Knowing how to handle each matchup is crucial with this deck.

For example against a warrior, having just a Mirror Image on turn one can cancel all the value he can get from a Fiery War Axe and buy you enough time to get back in the game.

That knowledge only comes with experience, and as positiv said, watching pro players play the deck.

      Hey All!
      So I have not figured out simming yet so I am hoping some nice, experienced mages could help me out? So the trinkets I am using currently are an 885 wriggiling sinew and 855 shock-baton for single target. After reading the new BiS trinkets on this site I am a little confused. I'm still using RoP because of sinew but is sinew bad now? My DPS is not bad but I would still prefer to be utilizing my character to the max.
      I have a 875 urn, 870 spiked tongue, and 880 plaguehive. Would either of those be better on ST?
      Really appreciate any comments / help, thank you!

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids.

      We currently raid Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:00-22:00 server time. We run social/alt raids during off days in which all ranks of the guild are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is also welcome to join(LoL, Dota, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with a 3 days a week schedule that you are expected to attend. However we understand things can come up but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons and world quests to gear in preparation for raids. This includes improving your artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared (i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.

      To join into our current main raids
      - 865 ilvl
      - 25 traits at the very least.
      - Experience on 4 or more bosses in EN Mythic.
      You will receive a response within 3 days but probably within 1. The trial process will last 2 weeks, sometimes longer. During the trial period you will not have loot priority over raiders however you may of course still roll.
