Behold! The tools of creation!  We are going to be creating dragons and lot of them with this deck! Ever draw a 1 mana Ysera, into a 1 mana Alexstrasza, into a 1 mana Crowd Roaster? Well now you can, thanks to Luna's Pocket Galaxy!  This deck is similar to a Spiteful Mage deck in the fact that it primarily runs minions but instead of relying on a big spell to pull out just 1 minion, we're going to make our whole deck cheaper to make a lot of big minions!  The combo is fairly easy to pull off since we also have 2 Grand Archevist in the deck so by turn 7 or 8 most of the time we will have our combo! Full write up below, hope you all enjoy :). 

 

Mulligan:

Aggro / Midrange (Odd rogue, Odd pally, Hunter, Shaman, etc) - Never keep a card above 5 mana. Ideally, we want to be looking for Tar Creeper, Zilliax, Corpsetaker, Nightmare Amalgam, and of course Prince Keleseth.

 Control (Warrior, Priest, etc) - Here we can be a little bit more greedy with our mulligan and go for our Luna's Pocket Galaxy or Grand ArchivistArcane Keysmith, Scaleworm, Zilliax, Corpsetaker and Mojomaster Zihi are all great options as well.

Combo (Druid, Priest, etc) - Mojomaster Zihi.

 

Strategy:

As you can see, there is no card draw in this deck besides Stargazer Luna and no spells besides Luna's Pocket Galaxy.  Therefore, we need to control the board whilst being as efficient as possible with our minions.  It is great to use cards like Scaleworm, Crowd Roaster, Zilliax, etc to regain board control but if you have control of the board be careful not to overextend. A lot of classes have very efficient removals now like Paladin with Equality  or Psychic Scream or Brawl or Dragon's Fury or...you get the idea. Usually 2-4 minions is all you need on the board at a time since most of our minions hit like a truck anyway.  Clearing the board on turns 5-7 is the most important because it gives us a good opportunity to drop our Luna's Pocket Galaxy or Grand Archivist.  The huge swing turns come when we Mojomaster Zihi after we combo since we don't care as much about mana and when we Stargazer Luna after we combo so we can cycle our 1 mana cost big bois. 

 

Notable Mentions:

If you're facing a very aggro meta then possibly swapping out Prince Keleseth and Lone Champion for Plated Beetle and a Firetree Witchdoctor.

Harrison Jones - I would actually recommend this card! Sadly, I do not have him crafted but being able to counter weapons and draw, especially after using Luna's Pocket Galaxy is great. 

Frost Lich Jaina - Can substitute a Grand Archivist if you feel that 2 are overkill or for a Mosh'Ogg Enforcer

Nerubian Unraveler - If you're facing a ton of control decks like Priest, Warrior, etc and feel that 1 Mojomaster Zihi isn't enough

 

I hope you like this deck! As always feel free to ask any questions or leave a suggestion!
