Ooh, what do you think of Wild Pyromancer for a Questing Adventurer deck? It'd come out neutral on health but gain attack while AoEing all other minions.

Deff need the Auctioneer then, and possibly play a variation of Mage stalling.

EDIT-ting because I hate doubles:

Still had a decent night yesterday (24 -> 17). while my deck works right against most opponents, it currently lacks something to make me go through late game heavy hitters.

Here's the current setup:

Fearie Dragon * 2
Acidic Swamp Ooze * 2
Argent Protector * 2
Equality * 2

Shattered Sun Cleric * 2
Aldor Peacekeeper * 2
Sword of Justice * 2

Spellbreaker * 2
Defender of Argus * 2
Dark Iron Dwarf * 2
Blessing of Kings * 1
Consecration * 2
Truesilver Champion * 2

Argent Commander * 2
Avenging Wrath * 1

Tirion Fordring * 1
Lay on Hands * 1

What I'm currently considering throwing out:
SSC is still nice, but I really need more oomph later on.
Spellbreaker is nice at times (bu-bye Sylvanas!) but it's really situational and may be worth only rolling one, or none at all
Consec. Current meta doesn't see more than 3 minions on the table. It can help to reset a bad starting board, but it's insanely rare that I can't drop anything worthwhile on turn 2 -> 4
Tirion might fly out for another fattie, depending.

What might make its way in:
Knife Juggler might advantageously replace the SSC, as they're roughly similar early on, but KJ remains useful later on when you can dump him + a minion + HP and still not lose much in case of a sweeper.
Guardian of Kings: I've heard it's a highly valued card nowadays because it annoys Mage as all hell.
I'm starting to think Hammer of Wrath is all around better than Consec for the same price.
If I can lay my paws on it, Sylvanas and/or a couple of Giants could be nice...
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

Yeah, healing is very annoying for a Mage.

Surprised you run no 1-cost minions. They can get you off to a very good start when it comes to your opponents' 2-drops.

Do you really need double Equality?


Me, I'm probably going to try a Frost Giants deck tonight. I have an arena run lined up (good Druid deck), and only need about 60 dust to craft the Giants I need. Will run Pyro instead of Alexstrasza.

Never been a big fan of 1-drops.

Maybe Noble Sacrifice, which can still throw quite a spanner.
My big problem is that Equality is my ONE real way to efficiently deal with fatties for now. Especially in a meta that favor Golems/Legendaries, I would have killed to draw my second Equality in quite a few of my losses.

Big minions can be annoying, but I've managed to cope without Polymorph.

Trying to think of Paladins' options for clearing bigger minions. Blessing of Might, Blessing of Kings, Divine Shield, Hammer of Wrath; Peacekeeper can make them less of a threat before you clear them... That's just off the top of my head, not being all that familiar with the class right now.

That's pretty much it. Humility is Aldor without the minion. Truesilver is also a so-so plan.
I think my own big trouble is the near-absence of big guns on my side, that's why my big priority is those Guardian of Kings, and possibly doubling that BoK.

Hey! I played HS for fun once.

It was awful.

P.S. Actually because the difference in drawn hands made the game a relative no-brainer.

Damit. I had thought of it but didn't write it down. BGH is also a strong value in the current meta.

You're playing Mage with non-spell minions. QED. :lol:

Pretty strong arena deck, actually. But 4/4/4/4/4 is hard to recover from. :P

well, my first guess would be that you didn't meet enough or there just in general aren't enough freezing mages around? most of these self healing cards are not that great in other matchups.

Yeah, I think I saw two tops. I'll probably wait a little more before swapping them back in and push back to my original deck.
