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.

      Dave Kosak introduces us to the Monster Hunt, which will be available in a week.
      The Lead Mission Designer was joined by two of his associates to discuss the newest PvE mode, which will come along with The Witchwood. Paul Nguyen talked about the four heroes. Tess Greymane has a Hero Power that lets her Discover any class card that has been played in a game (by both players) and add it to your hand.
      Darius Crowley has an indestructible cannon minion that can be activated via Darius' Hero Power and fire at the minions across it. Positioning will matter, as you can kill two enemy minions at once and the Hero Power will refresh each time you kill a minion with your cannon. There weren't any details on Houndmaster Shaw or Toki, Time-Tinker, but it was hinted that the former hero will have something to do with Rush (just like its card counterpart).
      Giovanni Scarpati discussed bosses and treasures. The Monster Hunt will feature over 45 unique boss encounters. As Ben Brode had revealed in an earlier interview, each hero will have its own final boss, called "nemesis fight". For Crowley it's Lord Godfrey, for Shaw it's Glinda Crowskin and for Toki it's her own future self! When you clear the Monster Hunt with all four heroes (and win four packs), you get to face Hagatha as the last boss. Ultimately, as far as the treasures are concerned, there are a few returning ones from the Dungeon Run, but most are new. There are also hero exclusive treasures, as well as unique treasures "dropping" from rare boss encounters.
      You should definitely watch the video to get a glimpse of all the new stuff coming with the Monster Hunt. And don't forget: it's release date is April 26 at 10:00 am PDT!

      Start stocking up on vials of holy water and cannonballs, because The Witchwood’s free, single-player missions, the Monster Hunt, goes live on April 26 at 10:00 a.m. PDT!
      Join Lead Mission Designer Dave Kosak, along with Mission Designers Paul Nguyen and Giovanni Scarpati, for a Hearthside Chat that will equip you with everything you need to know for a successful Monster Hunt!
      Ready for Action
      If you played the Dungeon Run in Kobolds & Catacombs, the Monster Hunt will be eerily familiar—but much is different! Rather than choosing one of Hearthstone’s nine classes, you’ll take on the role of one of four veteran monster hunters, each with a special ability that you’ll need to make the most of if you hope to survive the hunt.
      Your hunter will venture deep into the Witchwood on Hagatha’s trail, defeating a series of monstrous bosses who dare to cross your path. With each victory, you’ll build a stronger and stronger deck with the items you find. You may encounter some trusty old equipment out in the forest, but much of what you’ll find will be entirely new, including treasures unique to certain foes. Each monster hunter has their own favorite tricks—a special hero power or ability that you’ll need to master if you hope to survive the hunt. Each hunter also carries a grudge against a heinous nemesis in the woods: a unique boss that only they can track down to fight.

      You’ll want to go on a Monster Hunt with every hunter, because each offers a quest that will earn you a Witchwood card pack. And if you’ve got the mettle to complete the Monster Hunt with all four hunters, you’ll finally have a chance to face off with the real witch in the woods: Hagatha! If you can free the wood from Hagatha’s curse, you’ll earn the gratitude of Gilneas and the Monster Hunter card back!

      We hope you enjoyed learning more of what lurks ahead in Monster Hunt! We’re eager to hear your tales of The Witchwood on social media using the #Witchwood hashtag. Learn more about The Witchwood at TheWitchwood.com!
      We’ll see you on the hunt!

      Hey everyone - I'm coming back to WOW after a 3 year break and I'm leveling a mage (fire lvl 33) - something I wanted to do before leaving.  I have read the articles on the addon but is that it?  I'm curious  what addons do you use for leveling, mobs, dungeons, etc...
      thanks
