After 25 games, my current win percentage is 73% using a GvG Low Budget version of this deck.

 

Not yet owning Bloodmage Thalnos, I substitute one Explosive Sheep, and swapped out the Haunted Creeper for a Nerubian Egg

 

The Sheep/Egg substitutions provide the following three opportunities:

  1. The Explosive Sheep, played alone and triggered with your hero power can clear the board of low cost minions..
  2. The Nerubian Egg can be played alone to discourage your opponent from casting an AoE.
  3. Egg and sheep be played/triggered together on turn 6 to potentially clear the board of enemy minions while leaving you with a 4/4.
I tried and failed with more exotic versions of this deck, but I'm doing fine with this one. Though, honestly, my opportunities to use any of those strategies listed above have been limited.
 
So any advice you might have about tweaking the deck in a different way would be welcome.
 
I'm a relative noob to HS, but I have leaned a lot and am improving thanks to this site's Decks/write ups. So thanks!

I haven't put a great deal of though into GvG Mage yet, but the absolute first thing you do in any all-in Aggro deck with GvG is add Jeeves. Jeeves is a borderline broken card in decks like this that burn through all their resources quickly and rely on good draws to keep up the pressure.

I really hope you update this for GvG. I had a Mage aggro that was fun to play.. Until Naxramas. It was then ok to play. Now it basically sucks.

But this looks like a reasonable place to start from. Perhaps snow chugger can free up the frost bolts as excellent taunt removal? And that card that's essentially a free magic missile if you have mechs seems like it could work well?

Yeah, there's a mech based Aggro mage that uses the cards you talked about, i'll do a guide on it soon.

Hi there.

 

Right now, I'm playing a modified version of this deck, and beign a casual player, I've been able to hit rank 12, so I'm very happy with it. I don't own Bloodmage Thalnos, so I'm running a Pyroblast instead of it, and most of the time I use it as a finisher. Also, I've swapped the Haunted Creeper for a Blizzard, in order to clean the board or gaining tempo in the late-game. What do you think?

 

My question is: How can I improve this deck, while keeping it at low cost? I already own several interesting cards, such as another copy of Blizzard, 1x Wild Pyromancer, Jeeves, Ancient Mage, Azure Drake, Argent Commander, Faceless Manipulator, Big Game Hunter, Ysera, and 2x Arcane Golem, Sunwalker. I should be able to craft several blue cards, or even a puple card.

 

In short, this is my current decklist:

      Mage Cards Neutral Cards

 

Thank you very much, guys.

Hi there...

 

I've swapped two cards in this deck, a Haunted Creeper for a Blizzard (I was in need of an AoE spell), and a Bloodmage Thalnos (I don't have that card in my collection) for a Pyroblast that I opened in a card pack.

 

Sottle's Mid Budget Mage Aggro Deck:

  • 2x Ice Lance
  • 2x Mirror Image
  • 2x Mana Wyrm
  • 2x Frostbolt
  • 2x Sorcerer's Apprentice
  • 2x Arcane Intellect
  • 1x Counterspell
  • 1x Mirror Entity
  • 2x Fireball
  • 2x Water Elemental
  • 2x Leper Gnome
  • 2x Undertaker naxxramas-icon.png
  • 1x Pyroblast
  • 1x Blizzardnaxxramas-icon.png
  • 2x Knife Juggler
  • 2x Loot Hoarder
  • 2x Mad Scientist

This is the deck without the internet links, I think I made a mistake with the format when I copypasted Sottle's deck, sorry for any inconvenience.

 

So, I was asking for some advice of the community, in order to improve it while keeping it al low-cost.

 

Thank you very much!

I don't like Pyroblast in this deck at all, it justs costs too much. It's only good as a late-game top deck, any other turn you draw it, it's really, really bad. You'd probably be better served by an Arcane Golem.

 

Even better, i'd just work towards playing the Mech Mage deck instead, it pretty much outclasses this older Aggro build in every way, although I understand it's a little more expensive.

Thank you very much for your advice. I think I will give a try to the Mechmage deck, and I will also try the Arcane Golem.

 

Thanks a lot !!!

      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.

      Fight Promoter is promoting Hearthstone by giving itself away! Ok, that didn't make sense, but the point is everyone gets a fee card for just logging in this Saturday!
      Blizzard (source)
      Yeah, we can get you a card. Really! Log in to Hearthstone on Saturday, May 20, to get a Fight Promoter card for free!

      No catch, just a free card--so don’t miss out.
      We’ll see you in the tavern!

      Who are we?
      Volatile are a group of mostly ex-mythic raiders, looking to get back into mythic raiding. We cleared through Nighthold heroic a number of months ago and need some more people in order to jump into mythic. Besides raiding our friendly bunch of members enjoy running mythic+ on daily basis, helping out with world quests among other things. Our discord is usually filled with members for daily banter and weekly fun. If you enjoy all that, you most certainly will enjoy your stay in Volatile.
      Who are we looking for?
      We're primarily looking for ranged DPS to fill out the roster. At this time we are full on tanks and healers.
      Tanks - Closed
      Healers - Closed
      Ranged DPS - MM Hunter, Warlock and Shadow Priest but all classes will be considered
      Melee DPS - Closed
      Overall we're looking for people with a good knowledge of their class/spec who know how to improve their gameplay. Being fairly thick skinned and being able to accept constructive criticism, as well as the occasional jab from some of our more 'outspoken' members, is a big plus too.
      When do we raid?
      We raid two times a week as standard, we often have an additional raid day if necessary. See raid times below. 
      Thursday: 8pm - 11pm (Server time)
      Monday: 8pm - 11pm (Server time)
      Tuesday: 8pm - 11pm (Additional day)
      Application process:
      We believe the best way to get to know if someone is right for the guild is just to have a chat, rather than go through a long application process. So we'll have a chat, look at logs and possibly run some M+ to get to know each other. If you're interested in joining our mythic raid team, contact any of the following:
      Contact us:
