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!

      Winter Veil begins next week on Hearthstone and a special Tavern Brawl will award three Knights of the Frozen Throne card packs.
      Next week's Tavern Brawl will be really similar to the Gift Exchange one back from 2015 and February 2017. There will be some differences though, as the Brawl will have a Kobold flavour and it will have a new name: Wacky Waxy Winter Veil's Brawl.
      As Winter Veil is a frosty season, the reward will obviously be three packs from Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion. It's not sure if the Winter Veil Wreath card back, which was associated with the Gift Exchange brawl during the previous years' Winter Veils, will be available this time to those who don't already have it.
      Blizzard Entertainment
      ‘Tis the season! In celebration of Winter’s Veil—and to give all you adventurers something to do that doesn’t involve taking candles—Greatfather Kobold has prepared a special distraction, er, Winter’s Veil tavern brawl packed with wacky, waxy gifts!
      These treats aren’t just on the game board! The reward for winning your first game of this Tavern Brawl is THREE festively frosty Knights of the Frozen Throne card packs! 
      Greatfather Kobold’s helpers have been busy decorating the Orgrimmar game board for the tavern brawl, but you can also experience the holiday in Stormwind while enjoying other play modes. And no matter how you play, don’t forget to show your opponent some holiday spirit with the return of the Happy Winter’s Veil greeting emote!
      The Rules
      Greatfather Kobold will drop off some tastefully wrapped, candle-bearing gifts on turn one—four on each side of the board, for a total of eight. If you unwrap a gift, you’ll receive a Legendary minion that costs three fewer mana to play! Greatfather Kobold will keep the celebration going by periodically parachuting in more presents. Don’t be greedy, though! You’ll only get a discounted Legendary minion from the gifts Greatfather Kobold left on your opponent’s side of the field.
      How will you build your deck to make the most of these potent presents?
      The Wacky Waxy Winter’s Veil brawl begins December 20 and lasts through December 24, so be sure to drop in and celebrate!
      A very Happy Winter’s Veil to you and yours! (source)
      For now, you can enjoy this week's Tavern Brawl, which is Valeera's Bag of Burgled Spells.

      Following the tradition started with Knights of the Frozen Throne, Kobolds & Catacombs gets its first digital comic.
      "Up Comes Down" is a lighthearted story about two Kobolds, who decide to go off on their own despite the orders of King Togwaggle. In their short adventure in the Catacombs, they encounter many obstacles, but by cooperating they manage to emerge victorious.

      You can read and/or download the comic here.

      Can you find the best move in a deck full of cards from the new set?
      The first episode of WTM since the release of Kobolds & Catacombs, Aleco plays a "Big Spells Dragon Priest" deck full of brand of new cards.
      Kobolds and Catacombs has hit the competitive ladder with a bang, bringing it with it an unprecedented number of impactful new cards. Some cards have come as huge surprises (Spiteful Summoner, Corridor Creeper), others have been performing about as well as expected (Duskbreaker, Twilight Acolyte), and all four of these powerful new KnC cards are featured in the deck I've had the most success with over the past four days - Sattelite's Big Spells Dragon Priest. The deck has a ton of play to it and never fails to produce difficult decisions and interesting situations, such as the one I found myself in here:
      "What's the Move?" is now seeking viewer submissions for the future episodes. If you ever find yourself in a sticky situation on the ladder, please feel free to submit your plays, questions, and feedback to Aleco on twitter.
