Mage's Spellstone card for hints at a potential Elemental theme for the class in the upcoming set.

Mage's Spellstone was revealed today by Chinese Hearthstone streamer LvGe, hinting at a potential Elemental theme for the Mage class in K&C:

The upgraded versions of Ruby Spellstone will provide an additional random Mage Spell for every two Elementals you can play while this card is in your hand, meaning that this card is capable of becoming a two mana Cabalist's Tome! The lesser version of this spell isn't very enticing, but both of the upgraded versions of Ruby Spellstone seem like quite the deal. Unfortunately, the requirement to upgrade Ruby Spellstone is quite prohibitive and will likely hold this card back from seeing widespread play on the ladder.

Let us know what you think about Ruby Spellstone in the comment section, and be sure to check out our Kobolds and Catacombs hub for more information on the upcoming set.

maybe if they bring out another cool mage elemental it would be more attractive. I generally dont like elemental builds though

I am not really impressed by the card and wow another card with "random" effect.

It only fits in an elemental deck which makes it ok, with another (any mage can use) upgrade it would be an auto include.

But I never really like Cabalist's Tome. Too much random, ofc it's likely to get at least one spell you really want but then you could just draw it from your deck instead of losing tempo by playing a card to get it.

If you happen to play a more elemental heavy deck this might be really good because usually you have to cut some spells/tools to make room for elementals. This could give you a nice way to get some extra stuff you had to cut. And if you really like to play ele mage, as a rare card, it's easy to get it out of a pack or still affordable to craft.

Am I really the only one that sees alot of potential here with the mage quest. I dont know how elementals might fit in a mage quest deck but it seems a really strong synergy.

How long until these quests even rotate out?

Actually, the mage quest will rotate in april 2019 as they said, but the base of the Exodia deck is rotating faster: cabalist tome and babbling book are rotating next year. I think that the next build of Exodia mage will be an elemental deck, as nowaday there exist at least 2 elemental that give you spell, and the Death Knight might become necessary if Ice Block will go to Hall of Fame...

      The latest Hearthstone community contribution allows you to train the skills needed to master Combo Priest: quick thinking, fast mouse movements, strategic decisions and on-the-spot calculations. What's more to ask?!
      Combo or OTK or APM Priest is a reiteration of Combo and Vivid Nightmare Priest that was born with The Boomsday Project thanks to two cards: Topsy Turvy and Test Subject. Dog is credited as the creator and true master of the deck:
      Many have subsequently tried and failed to pilot the deck, which can require almost 100 moves during the 75 seconds of a single turn. Pro players like Trump and Thijs have hilariously failed, while others like Disguised Toast and Kolento kept trying until they got the hang of it.
      Right now, you might be dreading that you don't have the IQ to play this deck. Fear no more: everything can be practiced and Patashu has made the tool for it! Combo Priest Simulator allows you to practice the OTK combo on your browser, while also timing you. You can change the parameters of the starting gamestate, too.
      In all seriousness, the deck's winrate is below average and it's honestly too much trouble for too little gain. Then again, slamming your opponent's face for 100+ damage is quite satisfactory. It would be awesome if someone was brave enough to bring this deck at a tournament: it would be the casters' nightmare!
      Apart from Combo Priest Simulator, we have a guide for Topsy Turvy OTK Priest here on Icy Veins; the guide breaks down the necessary steps of the combo in a useful priority list. Alternatively, you can listen to Aleco trying to explain how the deck works to Patrick (and actually succeeding) in the latest Icy Veins Podcast!
