Why would'nt you run a flamestrike?

This is more of an aggressive archetype and Flamestrike is a bit slow.  Firelands Portal has a spot due to fact that it not only deals damage, it also summons a minion.

It also can go face. That's a huge difference.

The deck is fast enough to deal with most of aggro decks, and against control decks, you don't want a Flamestrike (or any AoE that cannot go face for that matter), but a strong proactive card, such as Kabal Crystal Runner or Water Elemental.

A bit of both. You want to maintain your board while applying pressure to the face which isn't that hard to do with all of mages burn spells and cards like Medivh's Valet

While every version that I have looked up runs Primordial Glyph, each one has different cards that this version doesn't have. A lot of them run Babbling Book while others run Cabalist's TomeFaceless Summoner and some even run Archmage Antonidas and Yogg-Saron, Hope's End. I wouldn't say these are good replacements for Primordial Glyph but it lets you know that there are other options ran in this archetype. I hope this helps.

You should craft them, Primordial Glyph is an incredibly powerful card. You can try to replace them with Babbling Book in the meantime, but it's a much more random and weaker choice.

Some of the issue you may be facing could be the opponents. You may need to tech for certain match-ups yes, or you may need to switch decks all together. We are glad you are enjoying the deck though. :)

Why Ice Block?   I figure another, more offensive spell (I use spellbender in a very similar deck) fits better, if you need Ice Block then something's probably gone wrong anyway IMO, while usually it just sits there all game otherwise.

It's there for a multitude of reason, with the main ones being having a secret up at all times to more consistently enable the battlecry of Medivh's Valet, or to let you try and draw some burn if the opponent is low as well, which has become even more important with the addition of Aluneth to the game.

I found myself replacing Ice block too. Yes, what positiv2 said is right but I rather keep a velet in hand or play it without the battlecry than having a secret that is doing nothing in most games.

But I guess secret mage will not be playable with the next rotation (unless they put new fancy stuff in the next expansion that supports it) ofc there are still a lot of tools which will not rotate out but the loss in speed due to Kabal LackeyKabal Crystal Runner and Medivh's Valet is hard to compensate

Eh lackey is pretty meh in the deck, quite a few versions of this deck don't even run it, the Valet, while nice, is also not necessary, but the crystal runner will hurt, a lot.

The idea behind ice block is that you can go all in and go face with everything you have, knowing that the opponent needs at very least 2 turns to kill me.

Using or not using ice block means that you play the deck a little different: with it you're playing a burn the face deck, and you should use lots of direct damage spell to hit face. Without it, you are playing an aggro/tempo deck where board matters.

      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!
