I do not think this is a viable deck, i actually prefer much more sottle 's decks, this is not viable at all, you have no consistent board, no consistent spells to help antonidas. If you loose antonidas or alexastra you can throw everything in the toilet. You meet a paladin or a priest that keep healing themselves you can do nothing.

i had it against at rank 13. not bad at all. this melts you slowly till 15 or 10 Hp. so they can close the game easy with Pyroblast.

i never won against this. in the actual standard meta there aren't many ways to counter Alexstrasza that just don't care if the enemy have healings

This is a viable deck, though it may be hard to pilot. And it is a deck with several important favored matchups, such as rogue (both quest and miracle), and midrange paladin. And these 3 decks are tier 1 decks, meaning you will encounter them more often than not, especially at higher ranks. 

It sucks against both warrior archetypes, one is too fast, other is too 'healthy' for a combo, but that's only fair. Also, this is the most viable mage deck out there. I know, because I tried all of them.

Maybe its about your mindset;

Freeze mage never ever had a consistent board, it is not like an elemental mage, which plays along a curve, and make use of elemental synergies. Freeze mage mainly has Doomsayer to combo with Frost Nova and Blizzard, several minions for card draw, Alexstrasza and  Bloodmage Thalnos. This one also has Archmage Antonidas for extra burn. None of these minions make a board. Rest of the cards are stall and burn.

Yeah, Dirty Rat hurts this deck, quite a bit.

Partially wrong. After Alexstrasza, priest cannot heal for 15 in one turn (Unless Binding Heal is involved), and this means you have like 1 or 2 turns to finish them off. Don't use Alex until you have enough burn for the next several turns. 

For Paladin, you may try to use some of the burn to force them to heal with Forbidden Healing, then you Alex them. However, N'Zoth Paladin is a really bad matchup. If you encounter so many of them, try adding a second copy of Pyroblast

@FanofValeera Disagree about this being the most viable mage deck. I've piloted a  Secrets Mage, and a Control oriented value deck with Medivh just fine.  At times better than Freeze mage.

 

Explain how this is good against quest rogue for me, if you would.  I see the numbers that claim it is, but have had zero success against that deck.  It's just way too slow, and freezing the board doesn't really help as they can just send 5/5's with charge, and/or start hacking away with Evis

Freeze mage used to be the strongest mage deck, but the meta has evolved since the post was made (during the last 2 weeks, that is), making Secret mage the stronger deck.

      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: 2 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!
