Questline Mage Deck Mulligan Guide

Questline Mage is a spell-based Questline deck. It is important to look for key spell-synergies in the early game in order to have the strongest possible position going into the mid game.

  • General Mulligan (keep regardless of what your opponent is playing)Incanter's Flow, Sorcerer's Gambit.
  • Mulligan against Aggro (also keep if you think you are playing against an aggressive deck)First Flame, Brain Freeze.
  • Mulligan against Control (also keep if you think you are playing against a slow deck)Arcane Intellect.

Questline Mage Deck Strategy

When piloting this deck, your aim should be play Sorcerer's Gambit and then to focus on playing Incanter's Flow to reduce the cost of the remaining spells in your deck. Whilst playing the aforementioned cards, you should also look to weave in cheap Fire and Frost spells, such as First Flame and Brain Freeze to progress your Questline.

Going into the mid game you should continue to use a mix of Arcane, Fire, and Frost spells to keep the board clear of enemy minions, while finishing up the Sorcerer's Gambit Questline.

Once you finally complete your Questline, you should look to play Arcanist Dawngrasp as soon as you have the opportunity to do so. Once played, you should use the bonus spell damage to rapidly burn through your opponent's Health, refilling your hand with Cram Session as required, to close out the game.

Against Aggro, you should put more effort into controlling the board, forgoing Questline progression if necessary. In most cases, game can be won by continuously removing opposing minions until they no longer have any cards left in hand.

Against Control, you should put a much higher priority on drawing cards earlier in the game with Arcane Intellect and Refreshing Spring Water to ensure you have a healthy number of cards throughout the game. When focusing more heavily on drawing cards, you should be deep enough into your deck upon completion of your Questline, allowing you to easily draw and play your Ignites as many times as required to burn down your opponent.
