This is by far the most overpriced and the worst deck I've ever had off this website. Losing way more in ranked than winning, can not compete with most decks out there. Such a waste of dust...

I would guess you are playing the deck incorrectly. If burn mage has been used to get Top 100 Legend by multiple players, it is clearly not a terrible deck. Could you upload a few replays?

I think we should point out that you need to add Skulking Geist in order to defeat Jade Druid, if you are loosing to that.

Also the way you handle your late game win condition (Frost Lich Jaina) is essential as well.

I am not a fan of that deck type, at lest more fun to play against it than all the silly secret and/or quest mage decks. But ...

Compared to some other decks these days it's a pretty cheap deck. But just another one showing how hard it gets to have a top tier deck.

Btw. I think Bloodmage Thalnos is great because of his deathrattle but can easily be replaced by a Tainted Zealot, saving you 1600 dest :)

Kobold Geomancer is a better option than Tainted Zealot for a mage deck. Priest and Warlock has AoE for whole board, which makes divine shield better than 2 extra stats, however, all mage spells (except Volcanic Potion) doesn't deal damage to your board anyways, which makes +1/+1 a better option, in general.

To be honest I haven't thought this way, thank you :) but ...

Your opponent may cast some AoE as well to kill some of you minions, this way you can still have the +1 spell damage minion (assuming it still has divine shield). Another situation I had several times is to make use of the divine shield and easily kill a one health minion (that has more than 1 attack) and still have the Zealot, sometimes your extra damage from your hero power is not enough or it's a good way to save the 2 mana :)

I'm not a pro player so I'm not sure, maybe I am wrong with my thoughts but it looks reasonable for me ... at least a bit.

I have tried Kobold Geomancer in the mage deck because i haven't Bloodmage Thalnos and it was kind of slow,mana-wise speaking.The Tainted Zealot might be a weaker card altogether but serves better IMO the purpose of not losing the board easily on the early stages of the game.

That means,with a good mulligan you could have a decent starting hand which could easily contrast aggro decks and bring you to the late stage in very good shape.

How is Kobold Geomancer slow mana-wise, but Tainted Zealot isn't :)

In my opinion, none of these cards is good for early board control. While playing mage, you try to do it with spells, and maybe Mana Wyrm and Doomsayer.

Anyways, whichever 2-mana spell damage card you pick to play, you play it along spells, Bloodmage Thalnos is good because of card draw, other two are not too different, you can try both and see which one suits you better.

In all the combinations i have tried for these cards,none of them have had the functionality of Bloodmage Thalnos. Clearly you cannot build board control over them,especially for mage where spells do the work.It's just that i had the impressions that Tainted Zealot had a gear more because of the divine shield. After all the game sample was short,so no safe conclusions about that!

Sorry, Ihave just got around to replying, but Caldyrvan is very much correct.  The guide references many cards that are strategically relevant but not included in the deck, and Doomguard is no exception.

      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!
