Table of Contents

This variant of Elemental Mage takes advantage of Frost Lich Jaina to play long Control games to grind down opponents. It extracts huge value from the Icy Touch Hero Power to summon free Water Elementals to out-value opponents.

3. Comments on the Variation

This variant cuts most of the Elemental synergies in favour of Control tools. Ice Block is a core tool used to aid in reaching the late-game and ensuring Frost Lich Jaina can be played safely in order to gain Lifesteal effects on Elementals. The use of Ice Block also makes Medivh's Valet a very strong choice as it means there will almost always be a Secret in play to enable the Battlecry effect.

Some Freeze synergies are also present to make navigating the early-game easier. Breath of Sindragosa serves are a very cheap removal spell to deal with early-game threats while Ice Walker provides additional Freezing effects to slow opponents down.

As well as outvaluing opponents, the deck also contains many late-game threats. Baron Geddon provides an additional AoE to control the boards, while also gaining the Lifesteal effect from Frost Lich Jaina later in the game. The Lich King and Sindragosa are the main win conditions in the deck, with their ability to generate multiple powerful cards they are more than enough to finish off more opponents.

4. Pros and Cons

As most of the Elemental synergies are cut from this archetype, there is a significant impact on the tempo that can be generated. In most cases it is not possible to develop a strong enough board to be able to win in the mid-game, forcing a late-game strategy right from there start.

Although the deck is forced into late-game strategies, it is very well equipped to do so. It has a good balance of value, survivability and late-game threats that puts it in a strong position to compete with any Control deck.
