3. Comments On The Variation

This variant of Quest Mage aims to pull off the infamous "Exodia Mage" combo. By getting 4 copies of Sorcerer's Apprentice on the board at the same time as Archmage Antonidas it is possible to constantly play 0 Mana copies of Fireball to burst down opponents from almost any Health total.

This variant takes a slower approach, relying heavily on two copies of Cabalist's Tome to do most of the work towards completing the Open the Waygate Quest. The variant uses efficient card draw in the form of Acolyte of Pain, Coldlight Oracle, and Arcane Intellect to draw the necessary pieces for the final combo, to free up additional slots in the deck.

Simulacrum is a flexible card used to help copy key minions in the deck. Its primary use is to generate an additional copy of Sorcerer's Apprentice in place of Molten Reflection, however it can also sometimes be used to copy Doomsayer to stop Aggro decks and occasionally Acolyte of Pain or Coldlight Oracle for additional card draw.

The variant is very streamlined towards pulling off the final combo and offers no other real win condition as a result. Your primary focus should be to draw cards to get the required combo pieces quickly as possible while also using any spare Mana to cast spells to go towards completing Open the Waygate.

4. Pros and Cons

This variant removes many multifunctional tools like Babbling Book and Alexstrasza that can help create alternate win conditions. This makes the variant more streamlined overall, however it puts a huge dependency on pulling off the final combo that can be potentially countered by cards like Ice Block and Dirty Rat.

4.1. Quick Mulligan Guide

The mulligan strategy for this deck is primarily to get as much card draw as possible. Open the Waygate should always be kept in your opening hand and will always be your Turn 1 play if you do not have The Coin. In addition to this you should look for plays for the following turns such as Arcanologist, Novice Engineer, Arcane Intellect, and Coldlight Oracle. Primordial Glyph can also be kept against Aggro decks to generate cheap removal spells to slow down any early board pressure.
