you claim this deck is 2080 cost but pyro alone is 1600 each perhaps you meant another deck?

Pyroblast is epic, which means a cost of 400 per card (Legendaries are 1600). There are 4 epic cards + 12 common cards that need to be crafted (the ones with a white gem in the middle). These common cards cost 40. So, 4x400+12x40 = 1600+480 = 2080! :)

You might have checked "Show only golden cards" in the crafting tab, which explains why you have seen 1600 cost.

COOL DECK!!! Verry cheap and I did 11 rank so far on it and still progressing!!! did some small replacements though coused by lack of cards mostly. Using 1 pyro and one Ice block -> Raggy, Dalaran mage(?!, need change it:).

Love this deck! Sure enough most opponents are pressured into getting rid of the minions especially the Mana Wyrm. Then when you hit 10 mana simply hit the pyroblast and it's over.

I noticed you completely changed this deck to exclusion of pyroblast and iceblock. I must say: the new deck feels agressive allright.

 

I was wondering why you mention Kirin Tor Mage? It is not part of the deck. Did you mean that as a replacement? If so, for what?

 

In my American deck I miss the 4 top cards: azure drake and argent commander. I replace them with questing adventurer, knife juggler and 2 owls (for the silence ability). That works too.

 

I tried this deck as is in Europe and found the azure drake less useful. I swapped 2x azure drake and 1x argent commander for 2x ironbeak owl and 1x questing adventurer. Maybe I am just not using the azure drake properly, I just find it dies fast and is targetted first.

 

Another thing is: would it be viable to save old version of this deck?  I have come to rather depend on the info out here.

 

Kind regards, Guus.

Kirin Tor wasn't supposed to be in. I've removed the mentions of it. Thank you!

 

We'll be featuring the "old versions" of our decks in the future, in the changelogs.

this new deck is not so good. I lost consecutive 5 games tonight. If I have no Mana Wyrm in the early stage, then there's no really pressure, which leads to a hard mid-late game. Ice lance have to wait ice bolt or water element, which is not usually happened, because I have to use ice bolt to kill enemy's minion.

I think the June edition of this deck is not so good. I got 5 consecutive lost tonight. My minion is too easy to be killed. If I can't get Mana Wyrm / Knife Juggler /  Mirror Image at the beginning, then early game is hard to build pressure, thus leads to a hard late game.  Ice Lance usually become dead card because I have to use Frostbolt to kill important minion. I think the March edition of "Low Budget Mage Alternative Aggro/Rush Deck" is better. My minion usually stay longer, and I can at least expect a pyroblast to end my enemy.

This deck has gotten me from start to rank 10 easily.I can't see how anyone had 5 consecutive losses.. I was still getting consecutive wins at rank 12. Also, it has never lost to murlocs so far which is a plus. Thanks for this, worked for me

Differences in personal "skill" (decision making, experience, inspiration, playstyle, etc.) as well as the opponents you encounter can influence these things. I will re-state that the decks are created by Poyo, who is a proficient Hearthstone player that's attained Legend rank in several seasons, and that also tests each deck before we put it up on the site. So, the chances for a "bad" deck to go up are very low. But, you can always make specific critiques or ask questions, and we'll try to answer.

That's great to hear. If you've just started out, then you've still got a long way to go and a lot of strategic concepts to learn, but it's not so hard. Many of our guides will probably prove useful to you.

This seems a bit odd. What exactly are you losing to?

Glad to hear it!

I dunno why people would have problems with this deck, it's incredibly quick with nice creature removal.  I run with auctioneers instead of the argents but otherwise mine was based on this one.

I still prefer playing druid now but I've been doing very well with this deck when I get a mage quest, it puts very serious pressure on your opponent from the start and unless they can control the board the game won't see turn 10.  Six useful one-mana and six useful two-mana minions make for very consistent card draws and you'll often find your opponent wasting mana or removal cards on your weenies just to see you stick two more out every turn.  I still think auctioneers are more useful than argent commanders, it's cheaper and if your opponent lets it live your spells on the next turn hit harder and you replenish your hand... and if they take it out they probably wasted most of their turn to do it.  I also tend to run with one polymorph, it's just too darn useful in a speed deck to take out a nasty taunter so your little army can get through for another six or seven points and set you up for some finishing spells.

i won like 10 in a row but now i keep losing. for some reason, i keep getting all the high value cards at the beginning. am i just unlucky? 

i feel like this deck is dependent upon getting certain cards sooner than others. luck dependent almost?

anyways, thanks though. will continue grinding out games with it.

Loot hoarders seem too slow for this deck.

 

You already have too many 2 minions and its hard to find a place for this card to do any board presence.

 

I replaced it with a couple of Deathlords. Works great, buys time for your lowly minions to stay on board and continue attacking face, which is often better than drawing new card.

      Anton "Dvck" Lund found his way out of a jam on the ladder. Can you?
      Dvck and Aleco discuss the importance of planning ahead, understanding the meta, and knowing when to pivot your role in a matchup.
      The player interviews I've done with RayC and TerrenceM have been some of the most fun and informative episodes of "What's the Move?", so I was very excited when Anton "Dvck" Lund reached out to me via reddit with a play from a recent game of his. Playing as Combo Dragon Priest, Dvck was able to find his way out of a tough spot against Murloc Paladin. Can you do the same?
      In this week's episode, Dvck and I discuss the importance of planning ahead, understanding the meta, and knowing when to pivot your role in a matchup. For what ended up being a relatively short episode by "WTM" standards, I was pleasantly surprised by how much we were able to break down together so quickly. The interview with Dvck was as fun as it was informative, so I hope to have him back on the show soon! If you're interested in watching some high-legend gameplay, be sure to tune into Dvck's stream on twitch.tv.
      You can look forward to a few more episodes about the Hearthstone World Championships in the coming weeks, but I always welcome submissions and suggestions for future episodes. Did you have a favorite play from the world championships? Feel free to link me the VOD here on Icy Veins or send me a message on twitter @Aleco_P.
      Thanks for watching!

      Kolento and ShtanUdachi found themselves in nearly identical situations at the world championships - but did they make the same decisions?
      Episode 14 of "What's the Move?" discusses the importance of being mana efficient in the early game, as well as the relationship between speed and value.

      The Hearthstone World Championships were full of incredible plays, sticky situations, and valuable lessons to be learned from the best players on the planet. There were far too many great plays to analyze in a single video, so for the next few episodes of "What's the Move?" I'll be breaking down all of my favorite plays from the World Championship weekend.
      To kick things off we have a pair of Tempo Rogue vs. Highlander Priest matchups featuring Kolento and ShtanUdachi. Both players drew nearly identical opening hands, but did they did make same decisions?
      If you managed to spot a particularly tricky or interesting play from the recent World Championships, please feel free to link it in the comment section below! I'd love to break down as many viewer-submitted topics as I can in the coming weeks and months, and I have little doubt that I may have missed some of the most fascinating plays from the tournament during my initial viewing.
      Wishing you all the best of luck in the post-nerf meta!

      Welcome to the post-Corridor Creeper meta.
      Hearthstone Update 10.2 is now live worldwide and it's a big one!
      The first change it brings are the nerfs to four cards that have terrorised dominated the meta up until now. Bonemare now costs 8 mana, Patches the Pirate no longer has Charge, Raza the Chained makes the Hero Power cost (1) instead of (0) and Corridor Creeper has been butchered down to 2 attack. You can read Aleco's interesting opinion piece on Blizzard's nerf policy here.
      The second big addition of this patch is the Ranked Play update, which will take effect on March 2018. Players will now drop only 4 ranks with each monthly reset, all ranks will have 5 stars and you will only need to win 5 Ranked games to earn the monthly card back.
      The Year of the Mammoth Bundle is also finally available on the Shop. For $19.99 or 19.99 EUR, you can get 30 packs - 10 for each of the Year of the Mammoth expansions (Un'Goro, KFT, K&C). Don't forget that the Quest for Packs event is still ongoing and an addition has been made to the grand prize winner reward: $1.200 (read here for more info)!
      Lastly, the patch introduces the Wildfest event. From February 19 to March 11, Hearthstone is going Wild! Initially, you will be able to draft cards in Arena mode that are exclusive to Wild. Second, even though Tavern Brawl is usually on Wild format, there will be two special Wild Brawls. The first one is called "Venture Into the Wild" and it will just contain premade Wild decks for each class. The second one, "The Wild Brawlisseum", is basically a Wild Heroic Tavern Brawl, but with a major improvement: the first run will be free for everyone. You can read more about Wildfest here.
      Below you can read the patch notes, which describe all the updates as well as various bug fixes. A massive change is that the timer for the first two turns will now be shorter!

      The tavern is buzzing with all the stuff that’s packed into this Hearthstone update! There’s a Ranked Play update, a Wild party, card changes, and a chance to save on packs with a new Mammoth Card Bundle! We managed to squeeze in some card backs and bug fixes too!

Players at Legend reset to rank 4, 0 stars. All ranks will have 5 stars. Starting in March, you will no longer earn the monthly card back by reaching Rank 20.

Three losses and your run comes to an end. Your first Brawliseum run is free! Additional runs are available for the same price as Arena tickets. Also like the Arena, prizes are based on number of wins, and follow the Arena reward structure.

      Year of the Mammoth – Acquired from winning five games in Ranked Play, March 2018.
      Bug Fixes & Updates Gameplay
      The turn timer for the first two turns of a match are now shorter, though they should still be significantly longer than most players take on those turns. Switching from Valeera the Hollow to Deathstalker Rexxar will now correctly allow Rexxar’s Battlecry to destroy minions buffed to 2 health by Stormwind Champion or similar effects. Nemsy Necrofizzle’s Hero frame is now golden if you have unlocked the golden Warlock Hero. Removed rarity gems from several summoned minions. Playing multiple copies of Temporus in a row will now queue up sequences of two turns for your opponent and two turns for you. Fixed a bug where the Divine Shield provided by Elixir of Purity could not be silenced. Spectators now see green highlights on playable cards for both players. Fixed an issue that could cause Hearthstone to freeze when a spectated player disconnects and their opponent concedes. Tooltips for Hero Cards now appear correctly when spectating. Resolved a crash that could occur when drawing a Darkness Candle spell after The Darkness is no longer dormant. Grand Archivist can now correctly cast the Darkness Candle spell if it is present in a player’s deck. Resolved a crash that could occur when certain cost reducing cards were played. Resolved an unintended interaction that could occur with Anomalus, Taunt minions, and Commanding Shout. Added missing Collection Manager tooltips to several cards. Resolved an issue that could cause a player to become stuck when reconnecting before the first turn. Resolved an issue that would prevent the progress notification for more than one Daily Quest from being shown after a match is complete.

      Resolved an issue with the Collection Manager that could allow the set filter to be interacted with behind the “Done” button. Scrolling through an Arena deck on a mobile device will no longer generate unnecessary prompts. The “Back” button will now function correctly after an Arena run is complete. History tiles that were queueing up while viewing a history event now populate correctly. Resolved an issue that could cause crafted cards to remain visible over the Collection Manager.

      According to the Principal Game Designer, Cubelock isn't as powerful as it seems.
      Cubelock won't be touched in the upcoming balance changes which, for many people, is a sign that the deck will completely dominate the meta after said changes become active.
      The deck is already prominent enough that people have started making false claims about it. A Reddit user claimed that he faced 17 Cubelocks in a row! However, Mike Donais put the matter into place by saying that there was no such streak in Blizzard's internal data and that Cubelock is currently the 12th best deck.
      He subsequently explained that he expects the deck to rise after the nerfs, but he's not too worried because it's a challenging (and expensive, I would add) deck to master. If the team feels that Cubelock is too powerful, though, they will evaluate it.
      mdonais
      I just checked the data, and no one played 17 cubelocks in a row today.
      If you are indeed having trouble with Cubelock there are several decks that beat it consistently right now. It is currently the 12th best deck.
      I did enjoy the title of your post though. (source)
       
       
      A couple people asked why the stats I mentioned don't metch VS power ranking so I looked up VS 79 and across all rankings Control Warlock is the 10th best deck. I assume they mix control and cube warlock in their stats. We have decks broken out a bit more but 10th gives you the general idea.
      Obviously after the nurfs it will be stronger since none of the cards in cubelock are being nurfed and that concerns me but it is a pretty challenging deck with a lot of opportunities to show off player skill. People will eventually get better at playing it, but people will also put in more weapon destruction or silence cards if it gets more popular.
      I am excited to see what people figure out after the patch. If Warlock is a big problem after people have some time to adjust and tune the new decks then we will look into it. I have said many times before that win rate is not the most important factor in our nurf decisions. How people feel matters more, so we will listen to players and make decisions based on that, just like we did in the past with Quest Rogue and Patron Warrior. (source)
