Deck Talk: Moonstar's Tournament MoonMage
In this week's Deck Talk, TheChiv had Moonstar, a popular German Hearthstone player, on the show to discuss his MoonMage Tournament deck. This deck is a tournament grade deck so it may not be very helpful in the current meta which is overloaded with Hunters, but it is a great contender in the popular tournament format where you're able to ban an opponent's class.. like Hunter. No one expects Jaina Proudmoore!
Mad Scientist is a staple of the deck to help fish out your Duplicate and Mirror Entity which will help bring your strong minions back and to give yourself some extra board presence by copying your opponent's minions. Clear the board in the endgame with Flamestrike or hold it still with Blizzard to go for the win, or maybe you'll just need to cast a Pyroblast to the face.
The deck clocks in at 6000 Arcane Dust, and includes a handful of Naxxramas cards which really help round out the Mage's arsenal. Check out Deck Talk Episode 5 below where TheChiv and Moonstar discuss Moon's tournament deck in detail.
Ben Brode was asking for feedback on the Naxxramas adventure over on Twitter, and he had some answers for some of your questions.

Why didn't more bosses have the interactivity of Kel'Thuzad? he has quips for every class, every other boss has a total of 2 lines.
Wanted to make KT feel special. The other bosses had more than 2, though. - Ben Brode (Source)
But why can't we get golden versions of the card from packs? And why can't we use the naxx board?
Don't want to change packs because we don't want you to save them for later. Naxx board helps make naxx feel special (for now) - Ben Brode (Source)
Are you guys okay with how eternally strong zoo is? meta changes just seem to add or remove a few cards :/
We are always looking at it. For now we are ok with it - it's not too out of whack with other strong decks. - Ben Brode (Source)
I have an idea to make Naxx more replayable. Daily quests, using certain classes on certain bosses? Has this been talked about? Like defeat patchwerk with a Mage and hunter. = 40G and mix this in with the quests that are already there.
Yeah - worried that it stops being fun date the 6th time we tell you to beat patchwerk with Mage. - Ben Brode (Source)
