This budget variant utilises most of the Elemental synergies seen in full-cost Elemental Mage decks. However, the Legendary and Epic options have been swapped for cheaper alternatives to make the archetype more accessible for players on a limited budget.

3. Comments on Budget Elemental Mage

This budget variant plays very similar to the Main Elemental Mage deck. The primary difference is the removal of Primordial Glyph, Blazecaller, Frost Lich Jaina, and Pyros for cheaper alternatives.

The combination of Lesser Ruby Spellstone and Leyline Manipulator is a cheap source of additional cards to make up for some of the missing late-game strength.

Using a second Shimmering Tempest in place of Pyros is a minor change. Overall, it will slightly reduce the late-game potential of the deck. However, in some situations an additional spell may prove to be more useful anyway.

Cauldron Elemental is included as a finisher to turn cheap Elementals like Fire Fly into real threats.
