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.

I've tried this combination. I dont like because win rate is really bad. What can i say no rush just 90 perc. defead. 1/10.

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.

      Dave Kosak is here with a new Hearthside Chat to talk about Dungeon Runs. He also showcased a new legendary card from the new expansion!
      We've already talked about Dungeon Runs, one of the new features that Kobolds & Catacombs will bring. Lead Mission Designer Dave Kosak explains in this latest Hearthside Chat the design process behind Dungeon Runs.
      Dave presented some unique elements only present in Dungeon Runs. For example, there is a card you can pick called Cloak of Invisibility, which has a Passive effect of giving your minions permanent Stealth.
      He also gave some insight on the encounters. Some Dungeon Runs can have thematic encounters, like there's a band of Troggs or Trolls you will have to beat. As far as the Trolls are concerned, Battlecrier Jin'zo has a passive effect that is similar to Brann Bronzebeard, which you and him can both benefit from! Similarly, Spiritspeaker Azun's passive works like Baron Rivendare for both parties, while Voodoomaster Vex combines both of these passive effects!
      The narrator, that will be guiding you through your Dungeon Run, is King Togwaggle - the king of the Kobolds himself! He is also going to be an actual card available in the next expansion:

      Images from Hearthpwn
      Here's the official blog post with everything you need to know about Dungeon Runs:
      Blizzard Entertainment
      What’s a Dungeon Run?
      Dungeon Run is a new insanely fun, single-player “rogue-like” mode where you’ll face deadly encounters and collect incredible Treasures to build a deck worthy of a hero!
      When your Dungeon Run starts, you’ll choose a Hero and receive a starting deck consisting of 10 cards. You’ll use it to overcome eight encounters of increasing difficulty (chosen randomly from a huge pool of 48 possible encounters!) to clear the run.

      That initial deck might be enough to help you squeak by your first opponent, but you’ll need to get stronger if you hope to clear the whole run. Each time you defeat a Dungeon Run encounter, you’ll be given an opportunity to “level up” your Dungeon Run deck with themed sets of three cards appropriate to your class. Occasionally, you’ll also be able to pick from a selection of three incredibly powerful Treasure cards—non-collectible cards and abilities made just for this mode that are too blatantly overpowered to see normal play.
      You’ll need all that power—as well as your wits—because these encounters can be fiendishly difficult. Victory is not assured, and each encounter has its own unique perils. If one of them gets the better of you, defeat is permanent, so you’ll have to start a different run with a whole new deck!
      If you manage to complete a full Dungeon Run with each of the nine Classes—no mean feat!—you’ll add the Candle King card back to your collection.

      In this article, we are covering two new cards: Temporus, a Priest legendary minion, and Benevolent Djinn, a Paladin common minion.
      Benevolent Djinn was revealed earlier today by Thai player Anothersayoran1. The name of the card was officially confirmed by Puffin.

      Image by Hearthpwn.
      It is difficult to judge this card without seeing it in action. It’s comparable to Friendly Bartender: while the Djinn heals for more, its 2 attack value is a bit mediocre for a 3-mana minion. Shaman’s Hot Spring Guardian is slightly better, since it has Taunt and a targeted heal effect. Then again, Djinn also acts like a Taunt, in the sense that your opponent probably has to spend early resources to remove its powerful effect. Both cards, though, are beaten by Tar Creeper.
      This make the Djinn a great anti-aggro tool. Additionally, it synergises well with Blackguard and its Elemental tribe means that maybe we’ll get to see an Elemental Paladin. This is definitely a powerful Arena card. But can it secure a spot in constructed mode? It looks difficult, since Paladin already has some great 3-mana minions.

      This intriguing minion was revealed by Eurogamer. Its sister site, Metabomb, sat down with Peter Whalen and Ben Thompson to talk about this card. Both developers think that Temporus can be run in either the classic OTK Priest (Divine Spirit + Inner Fire) or in two new versions of Dragon Priest: a more midrange one and an OTK one with Malygos. 
      It would be interesting to see what it's interaction is going to be with Brann Bronzebeard. Temporus is a "high risk, high reward" card and, even if you don't like it or it turns out to be bad, you'd still have to commend its design.

      The 2016 Hearthstone World Champion revealed this rare Druid card.
      Grizzled Guardian was unveiled on Pavel's YouTube channel. It's a rare Druid Beast, that costs 8 mana and has 3 attack and 5 health. It has Taunt and Deathrattle: "Recruit 2 minions that cost (4) or less". Pavel's video is in Russian, but you can enable accurate English subtitles to see what the World Champion has to say about that card.
      After watching Pavel's video, I am convinced that Grizzled Guardian isn't as bad as it looks at first sight. Sure, its stats are garbage, but you should also factor in the stats of the minions it pulls from your deck when it dies. Still, it's hard to see it fit into the current meta. Perhaps, it can see play when the Year of the Kraken sets rotate out of Standard. It also weakens the 8-mana slot for Evolve and similar effect.
      What's your opinion on Grizzled Veteran? As always, all the cards of the new expansion can be found in our Kobolds & Catacombs hub.
      PS: Turns out it's not Hogger 3.0 :(

      The newest Legendary Shaman minion has me shaking in my boots. Is this the card that will put Elemental Shaman over the top?
      Chinese Hearthstone streamer Snowkiss has revealed the Legendary Shaman minion from K&C. This bad boy appears to pack quite the punch - my mind is already racing with potential combos and synergies for Grumble, World Shaker:

      Card image courtesy of Hearthpwn.com
      Elementals have plenty of powerful Battlecry triggers which Grumble could play for a second time. Kalimos, Primal Lord, Servant of Kalimos, Blazecaller, and Jade Spirit immediately come to mind as potent synergies for the shaker of worlds. Grumble could also be used to double down of Jade cards such as Jade Chieftain and Aya Blackpaw, or could even be used to recycle the Battlecry triggers of the old gods. All of this on a 7/7 for 6 mana? Sign me up!
      Is this the card that Elemental Shaman has been waiting for? Let us know what you think about Grumble in the comment section, and check out our Kobolds and Catacombs hub for more information on the upcoming set.

      The second of three Unidentified Magic Items to be revealed from Kobolds and Catacombs, will Unidentified Maul be a smashing success on the ladder?
      Kripparrian revealed the second of three Unidentified Magic Items in Kobolds and Catacombs today on his Twitter accounter, Unidentifed Maul:

      A Paladin Weapon, Unidentified Maul begins each game with an unknown effect and will become "identified" upon drawing the card from your deck. The weapon will always be a 3 mana 2/2, but will be randomly bestowed with one of the four following effects when drawn:

      A couple of the potential modes on this card are very enticing. Two Silver Hand Recruits and a 2/2 weapon for 3 mana is a screaming deal, and the other three modes offer some serious value if you're already ahead on board. Given that three of the four potential modes on Unidentified Maul aren't very good when you're behind, I doubt this card will slot in as an instant replacement for Rallying Blade. Unidentified Maul could end up seeing play in token-based strategies, as granting +1 Attack or Divine Shield to a wide board of minions drawn from Small-Time Recruits is nothing to shake a hammer at.
      Will the random nature of Unidentified Maul be its downfall, or will its synergies with token strategies enable it to see some play on the ladder? Let us know what you think in the comments, and be sure to check out our Kobolds and Catacombs hub for more information on the upcoming set.
