Great build! Played, 5-1 untill now. Just 1 question, why 2 pyroblast and 1 flamestrike, and not 2 flamestikes and 1 pyroblast? Thanks for the reply!

Because Flamestrike is pretty situational. It's so threatening that most players will be very scared of it and do a lot to avoid exposing themselves to it. Most likely, you'll get one good Flamestrike off, but the opponent will never re-build a board to make a second Flamestrike useful.

 

Pyroblast, on the other hand, is pretty much always useful. Once you get to 10 mana, 2 turns will almost always be enough to guarantee a win with your Pyroblasts (and having 2 increases the chances of drawing at least 1 - which also often wins you the game).

What would you play in a legendary mage aggro deck with zero cost restictions..

This deck seems to perform pretty bad in the current meta. Taunts hard counter this build, pretty every other class will be able to establish board presence and overrun you with their minions, so your spells are pretty much useless. 
Have been playing against two mages, in one I got raped, the other one was not close as well. 

A shaman has murdered me as well. 

 

I am in the 14-16 ranks usually and must say, that this deck really underperforms. Even if you have a perfect starting hand, you need the perfect mana curve in the game as well to even have a chance. I will try it out a bit more... but at the moment, I must say, this deck is shit.

Guess we're going to look into this.

I replaced the defender of argus x2 with a blood mage thalnos and Polymorph. This deck has worked really well for me because of it's consistent damage from beginning to late game. I am rank 8, just from this deck. I've played this deck for a long time so I know how to counter each situation, and I think it's a matter of skill when people don't adjust well to the deck after only playing it 6 or 7 times.

May I ask for some suggestions on hoe to use the bloodmage. He always gets killed as soon as I put him out but I'm still new to the game. He just so happened to be I'm the first pack that I received. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

You can always hold on to him and play other cards. Play Bloodmage once you wish to empower a specific spell. However, if you have nothing to play in early game, it will often be better to cycle it.

Should I switch something for Ysera? (I have ysera, onyxia, and a sea giant).  I'm thinking ysera would be a good replacement for pyroblast or something else?

 

Thanks in advance!

I went:

-2 Arcane Intellect

-2 Leper Gnomes

+1 Bloodmage Thalnos

+1 Sylvanas Windrunner

+2 Arcane Explosion (stops the 1-2 hp rush, and it's a mini-flamestrike with bloodmage)

 

I've been using:

-1 Pyroblast

for

+1 Ysera.

 

I'm thinking of swapping something else for Alexstrasza.

 

What do you guys think would work better with my changes?

This deck worked very well up until about a month ago. It seems as if people are just flat out buying build decks now, so the odds of winning if you haven't put money into a top built deck, the chances of winning are kind of slim. It's just what I've noticed, been playing around with the game since the beta key.

I started with a midbuget control warrior deck and I really liked it but it seems people are better prepared for it now. then I made a mid budget agro paladin and hunter deck. I think this one is better than the paladin deck because its easier to plan with this one instead of hoping you get lucky and pull a  sword of justice. the hunter deck is ok too. If you don't spend money on decks those last 3 are good because they share leeroy Jenkins and many of other cards.

does any one know if I cast leeroy Jenkins when I have knife juggler on the board id the 2 whelps I summon for my opponent will trigger my knife juggler since I summoned them?

Hey, Mike

Should you have Knife Juggler on the board, your Leeroy Jenkins will trigger its ability only once for Leeroy, but not for the whelps, which will inflict 1 damage to a random enemy target.

Since you have brought Knife Juggler + Leeroy up, I would like to point out that if your opponent has Juggler, it will do 2 damage when you play Leeroy and it can happen that Juggler can kill your Leeroy :D

Its nasty and it can happen :D

Thanks, that would be so depressing if I killed my own Leeroy. On a side note, I've had pretty good luck with this deck against Priests. I hate Priests! they seem to best me more often than not on my decks.

I'm having trouble against other rush decks like the  mid budget paladin agro deck. It seems they out pressure me even when I get a starting hand with 1-2 mana costing minions. I start to minion trade and end up losing by a little. I also had trouble against shamans. Shamans can usually wipe out my first 2 minions with their 2-3 damage aoe.  any ideas on how to approach shamans especially? IE should I get a starting hand with more spells? I also find myself hardly ever getting a chance to use ice lance since my minion that can freeze Is usually removed quickly.

Hi, tried this deck for some time now. I do not know what I do wrong but I fail badly. Deck before this one I had more luck with. I was actually up at lvl 8 but now I can not go away from lvl 16-15. I actually have more luck with "Low Budget Mage Alternative Aggro/Rush Deck"

Hey, Mike

Ice lance is a finisher usually and you should simply pair it with Frostbolt. Frost Elemental can indeed provide the freeze, but its main objective is to bring crazy value on the board for its cost.

Against a shaman, you need to keep up with their totems and attempt to squeeze any damage to their hero in early game, trying to push them in kill range. Shaman will always run Lightning Storm and you simply can't over extend on the board: Play a Loot Hoarder or Arcane Intellect instead of further committing to pressure or simply use your hero power if you already offered your opponent a 2-for-1 Lightning Storm.

Hey, Minres

This deck leans towards mid-range which enforces different play style and if you try to play it as you played your Alternative Aggro, you will most likely run out of steam before you can finish your opponent. Go for the kill later, attempt to push for board control early and start nuking your opponent after you have pressured them lower.

I tend to agree about Ice Lance, it tends to be a dead card in my hand.  I'd also be careful about putting Leeroy in the deck, in play mode adding a legendary means going up against legendary-filled decks.  Take him out and you only go up against decks with rares.

I tend to agree about Ice Lance, it needs to be paired with another card to be effective so you *have* to have drawn both by turn 8 and done enough damage for this last 7 to be a finisher... with perhaps a fireball too.  13 damage for only 6 mana is pretty good but ah, what is your opponent doing?  Probably bringing out lots of taunters to force you to go into removal mode with weenies... a first-turn Voidwalker means you can't even afford to put out a soon-to-be-dead Knife Juggler yet.

 

I'd also be careful about having Leeroy in a deck with nothing else that's even Epic... adding a single legendary means Play mode includes all the hardcore decks.  Take him out and you'll play this deck against nothing but rares in Play mode.

      The Americas Region HCT Spring Playoffs will take place over the weekend of 27-28 May 2017.
      The HCT Spring playoffs for the Europe region was completed last weekend, with Hoej, Kolento, Neirea, and Rdu qualifying for the Global Championship next month.
      This weekend is the turn of the Americas region, and the reaction last week is that many players have submitted very greedy control decks in their lists. The players who have submitted the greediest lists will be well placed in the control mirror matches, but those same players will need to dodge the handful of Aggro lineups that are out there.
      To find out if your favourite player has qualified, you can check the standings here. The top 64 and ties made it to the main event, along with 8 Tavern Heroes. The event can be seen on the official Twitch channel from 8am PDT on Day One and 9am PDT on Day Two.

      The Europe Spring Playoffs and Championship took place over the weekend of May 20-21, which decided not only the new Europe Champion, but also the four players who would represent Europe at the Global Spring Championship in Shanghai next month.
      After seven rounds of Swiss, the top eight players cut to a knockout phase. The results of which were as follows:
        Hoej beat   FibEli3
        Neirea beat   INER
        Rdu beat   Casie
        Kolento beat   StanCifka
      This means that Hoej, Neirea, Rdu, and Kolento will represent Europe in the Global Championship. The top eight being so strong is a sign that the metagame is in a healthy place. All of the players were already known to be among the best in Europe, and despite their lineups differing substantially, they were still able to make it through.
      Hoej went on to take the title, beating Kolento 3-0 in the final. Hoej has been touted as one of the best players in Europe for some time, but traditionally has brought Control decks to major events. This time around, he brought a very aggressive lineup, and was rewarded for his willingness to adapt his style to the meta.
      The deck archetypes that each player brought to the event are listed below:
      Hoej: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
      Kolento: Jade Druid, Midrange Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Neirea: Jade Druid, Discover Mage, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Rdu: Aggro Druid, Face Hunter, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      The next four players to qualify for the Global Championship will be decided next week, with the Americas Spring Championships.

      The Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) European Spring Playoffs will take place this weekend, 20-21 May 2017.
      This will be the first playoff event since Journey to Un'Goro was released, and so if anyone has saved any surprise deck tech, this is the event where it will be revealed.
      The top 64 point earners, and ties, from the EU server will be joined by 8 Tavern Hero tournament qualifiers for the event, which will be played in esports bars across Europe. If you want to attend one of the events to cheer on your local favourite, the list of locations can be found here. There will be side events for anyone wishing to attend, with Blizzard prizes available for winners, and the Power Core cardback for all attendees.
      The point standings, showing the top 64, can be found here. As usual the event is stacked with many of the big names from the region. The top four will advance to the HCT Spring Global finals next month.
