I haven't played this deck too much but it's been a lot of fun. I don't want to post my win rate as it's a small sample size but I will be back with an update especially if you guys want it. Currently 8 - 4 at low rank but only played at the beginning of the season so far.
- General Mulligan: Keep 1 and 2 drop minions. Don't keep Volatile Elemental against ping classes. I only keep Power Word: Shield if I have the 1 drop minion already or I have a Radiant Elemental. Normally you will only keep your 3 drop if you have the 1 and 2.
Warrior/Rogue/Hunter/Warlock: Feel free to keep a Tar Creeper but mulligan your 2 drop if you don't have the 1 drop going first. Most of these will have an aggro opener and this guy is too good. Potion of Madness is your other saviour.
For Priest and Paladin stick to the general mulligan.
- General Strategy: The finisher is Divine Spirit into Inner Fire with a little wiggle room. You have Lyra the Sunshard and a Lightspawn if having trouble finding an Inner Fire, but Shadow Visions also solves that problem. Win on board, eventually wombo combo. Pretty straight forward.
Lyra the Sunshard: Not a super vital card surprisingly enough. Being generally used as hand refill, help with a finisher or lucky removal, you'd think you couldn't replace her. However, just sub in a Shadow Word: Death or Shadow Word: Pain.
Blazecaller: Again not a critical addition to the deck. Don't get me wrong this card is more important than Lyra in terms of crafting priority and effectiveness (on average, sure Lyra will be amaze balls sometimes.) Again just sub in a Shadow Word: Death or Shadow Word: Pain since he really is just a good Firelands Portal.
- Tech Choices/Subs:
Shadow Word: Pain and Shadow Word: Death: We're gunna start with the obvious two. The reason I'm not running them currently is I believe the other removal to be superior and playing minions in this deck is key, especially turns 2 - 4. With Potion of Madness, Dragonfire Potion and Blazecaller- not to mention all the over-stated taunts.. you'll be fine. However these are probably the two most likely to sub in, especially with Lyra the Sunshard in the deck.
Loot Hoarder: Better than Bloodmage Thalnos in this deck since he only synergizes with a high mana, high dmg spell that we're only running one of. Yes I realize Lyra can pull some miracles but most priest spells don't do damage guys.. come on now. Essentially the 2 attack is better and we need the draw instead of the SW: Pain.
Shadow Visions: I know most of you are like.. "Why one run? Wtf?" Yes, it is an excellent card. Yes, it's overpowered as hell in this deck. But when you have two it can discover itself and most of the time you need the better probability.
Coldlight Oracle: This was the miracle play, however in the current meta you just can't use him.
Lightspawn: Elemental synergy and will OTK for you when not removed. Need I say more?
