Comments on Cheap Mech Mage

This cheap Mech Mage deck is based around the full budget Wild variant. The core Mech package is very similar, however it should be noted that it lacks some of the late-game threats. To compensate for the lack of threats, a slightly more aggressive stance should be taken to ensure you do not run out of cards before you are able to kill your opponent.


Cheap Mech Mage Card Swaps

Obviously, as a Cheap deck, this list has a lot of room for improvement. As you progress with the game and gain access to more cards and Arcane Dust, here are some additions that you may consider.

Arcane Intellect is the weakest card in this budget deck and both copies can be temporarily replaced by Azure Drake if you have it available. Once you have access to a larger collection, these cards will eventually be replaced by Dr. Boom and Archmage Antonidas, or Ragnaros the Firelord as an alternative.

Both copies Flamestrike can be replaced with Unstable Portal to add more consistency to the early-game and while Flamestrike is an extremely powerful spell, it is unable to gain the desired value in an aggressive deck.

Flamecannon can be replaced with Loatheb to provide the deck with a powerful tool to help lockdown the board and to help protect strong board positions developed in the mid-game.

For other strong cards to consider, look at our full budget Mage decks, or our Crafting Guide.
