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.

Now my win ratio is much better now. I start to like this deck. I win a game with just ManaWyrm and spell cards in 5 Mana.biggrin.png

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.

Is there a reason for not having flamestrikes as removal because i have often been caught up when the have way to many cards and they over whelm me and i lose.

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.

      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      We kicked off this new series by analyzing a tricky situation which had only one optimal line of play. In episode two we'll take a look at a very different kind of situation, one where there might not be a perfect move at all.
      Please let us know in the comments what you would have done in this situation! One of the primary goals of this series is to foster improvement at Hearthstone by generating discussions. We would also love to hear your feedback on the video itself, as the series is still very new and has plenty room to improve on its format.

      In the latest Hearthstone update, Blizzard made adjustments to several cards. The patch is now live now on desktop and it should become available on mobile devices in the coming hours.
      Philosophy and reasons behind these changes can be found here.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Card Changes
      Innervate now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2)
      Fiery War Axe now costs 3 mana.  (Up from 2)

      A new Brawl has landed in the Tavern.
      Just like with the previous expansions, it's time to try out the deck recipes of Knights of the Frozen Throne in this week's Tavern Brawl. The archetypes for each deck recipe are the following:
      Druid: I guess the best name for this deck is Midrange Druid. It has Ultimate Infestation and Spreading Plague, so... PROFIT?! Deathrattle Hunter Elemental Mage Divine Shield Paladin Control Priest (you've probably seen variations of it in ladder) Jade Deathrattle Rogue Freeze Shaman Zoolock Control Warrior with Enrage minions This is a good opportunity to try out cards that you don't own. Good luck and have fun!

      The balance patch is arriving in the beginning of the next week.
      The wait is over! The anticipated card balance changes will arrive on September 18th and hopefully freshen up the meta a little bit. As the case always is with balance patches, for the next two weeks if you disenchant Spreading Plague and/or Murloc Warleader, you will get their full value in Arcane Dust.
      Daxxarri
      In the recent Upcoming Balance Changes – Update 9.1 blog, we discussed the details and philosophy behind balance updates that are coming to several Hearthstone cards:
       
      Innervate - Now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2) Fiery War Axe - Now costs 3 mana. (Up from 2) Hex - Now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3) Murloc Warleader - Now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health) Spreading Plague - Now costs 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      This patch is currently targeted for September 18th PDT. Please note that updates for mobile devices may take a few additional hours to propagate.

      Once these card changes are live, players will be able to disenchant cards that are not Basic (Murloc Warleader and Spreading Plague) for their full Arcane Dust value for two weeks. Basic cards cannot be disenchanted and will not be available for an Arcane Dust refund. (source)
