3. Comments On The Variation

This variant of Big Spell Mage contains more defensive tools such as Ice Barrier, Ice Blocks, and Polymorphs. The variant also contains many tech cards such as Dirty Rat to counter Highlander Priests, Skulking Geist to counter Jade Druids, and Golakka Crawler for use against the many popular Aggro decks that use Pirates in their decks.

In addition to the many extra defensive tools available, this variant does not utilise powerful minions to synergise with spells such as Dragoncaller Alanna, Spiteful Summoner, and Arcane Tyrant.

This removes all mid-game win conditions from the deck, forcing a pure control strategy. Consequently, all spells should be used as efficiently as possible to out-value opponents while trying to minimise all damage taken. Frost Lich Jaina is the sole win condition of the deck, which can be used to slowly overwhelm opponents with Water Elementals from the Icy Touch Hero Power.

4. Pros and Cons

This variant is much better positioned to deal with Aggro decks due to the additional defensive tools and tech cards present. However, the lack of proactive plays can make it incredibly hard to deal with other extremely slow Control decks.

5. Quick Mulligan Guide

You should look for Raven Familiar and Arcanologist in every matchup to provide proactive plays and early-game card draw. You can additionally keep tech cards such as Golakka Crawler, Dirty Rat, and Skulking Geist in your opening hand if your opponent is playing a class that has an archetype vulnerable to these cards.
