I'd like to see this deck in action on twitch. Any chance we can get to see you play it?

I recently crafted this deck and one of the difficulties I'm having is deciding whether to keep waiting for Alexstrassa or to just start using my damage to hit his face. Sometimes by the time I draw Alex, it's better used on myself than my opponent (this is especially true in hunter matchups). Do you find yourself improvising in your matches using this deck, or do you stick to the gameplan of using Alex? Thanks.

Yeah Improvisation is really important. If you get into the situation where you think you can just burn your opponent down from 30, then you should go that route. You're not going to draw Alex every game, and the deck would be too inconsistent if you couldn't win without it. As I kept trying to emphasise in the guide, the key to playing Freeze well is to assess the situation of the game at all times, and map out all the possible combinations of your next few turns. If you think one of those combinations leads to you killing them with straight damage, then by all means go for it.

I had the worst luck when trying out this deck xD Still love it though!

I had 2 good games where just normal, then i lost to a preist because of a injured Blademaster that i never got enough things to kill ( No combos either).

And after that i was really frustrated ( I kinda lose to preists alot) and decided to play one last game, This was where i was up against a Druid who was running a deck that was focused only on making me overdraw. At first i though ''well i'm just getting cards right? but then when i started overdraw i lost Alex, Both fireballs and the illuminator, I lost y Archmage and my pyroblast and finally a mad scientist. and since i had to randomly throw out cards since I'd overdraw even more if i didnt i lots all my damage since i had to use my freeze spells on minions and his face. Therefore i lost all my damage and lost horribly.

This thread is for the legendary freeze deck, but I got here from the page for the legendary fatigue deck. I was pretty confused when people started talking about Alexstrasza in a thread that seemed to be for a deck that doesn't use it.

is there a particular reason why prefering 2 blizzards over 1 blizzard and 1 cone of cold?

Blizzard is more impactful against large boards, Cone of Cold is a little situational and requires a board of exactly 3 minions to get good value.

What do you think about freeze mage without alextraza? I think nowadays people know the freeze mage quite well and are prepared to heal after the alex drop. I tried to make a list without alex that bursts the 30 dmg in 1 turn. Do you think that this could be viable? If not, what would you change?

It's been tried, the problem is that you on average have to stall for longer to draw to the full combo. It is a viable alternative though, I just greatly prefer the Alex version.

Is there any card that could replace Bloodmage Thalnos? Thanks in advance

Hey I was wondering if there is any way to replace mad scientist?

Not very effectively. You can replace them with additional card draw like Novice Engineer to help dig to your Secrets more consistently, but Mad Scientist is incredibly powerful and hard to replace, especially so with this deck.

i know this topic is about freeze mage,but since fatigue's link is directed here i might as well ask it here(you would do well to fix that link by the way).

 

 

do you think fatigue mage is currently still viable at legend ranks?i find the deck incredibly fun to play and i get some pretty good win rates with it,though i haven't managed to hit legend at any season yet mostly due to lack of time and messing around with other decks.

 

 

also about freeze mage do you know of any decent specific build that can do work without alextrasza?i have every card in that deck except for alex,and would like to try it out just for fun.

 

also,your decks rock man.

I have all cards except of the Archmage...what would be you an good alternative in your opinion?

Archmage is somewhat optional in Freeze anyway, you can just replace it with another card draw like Loot Hoarder or Novice Engineer, or with another Freeze option like Cone of Cold.

Finding that this deck suffers horribly to RNG, you've often not got the cards in hand to be able to counter whatever the enemy throws at you. In addition, games are very long, and very boring.

 

Kinda wish I had built in a different direction.

It'd be really awesome if we could get some gameplay commentary of you playing this sottle smile.png as you said it is a harder deck to play and I think it would help us out a ton

This deck is pretty bad in the current meta. You are gonna die before you get anything started.

So, play another deck that fits the meta :)

This deck is pretty bad in the current meta. You are gonna die before you get anything started.

It beats Zoo, it beats Patron Warrior, it's slightly favoured against Face Hunter, it's slightly favoured against Mech Mage. Not sure what aggressive decks in the meta you're losing to, but chances are you're just not playing the matchup well enough.

I just watched Thijs presumably hit Legend with Freeze Mage yesterday (he was at Rank 1 when I stopped watching)

      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:
