I am having a blast with this deck. Just finished the legend grind with 23-2 run, so decided to share this version of a deck. It actually feels like playing good old freeze mage.

Blast wave is awesome, Thalnos is replaceable but pretty good. Kalecgos is simply NUTS!

If you wanna advice how to play certain matchup - make sure to ask in comments. This deck is good against almost any matchup. I will be happy to give some tips

Thanks for the questions. I appreciate great responces! So i prepared the guide for the deck

General idea

Freeze mage is an old and cool archetype, it changed a lot. However the idea is still the same. We survive, deal with the board, use Alexstrasza and throw the damage to the face. However this deck has a lot of burn just to kill your opponent without Alex. This is our primary and probably the only win condition.

Card Decisions

Most of card choices are pretty obvious, if you ever played freeze mage. So i'll stop on specific ones.

Sunreaver Warmage - great addition to the deck. Super flexible. You can use it as an extra burn to the face or just to control the board. Probably irreplaceable

Lifedrinker  - not a super great card, however it keeps us alive and deal damage to the face. And this is our win condition, right? Probably replaceable, but can't give a specific advice

Ray of Frost - awesome card. Helps in freezing the board mostly. 10-mana combo Alex + freezing a minion on the board won me couple games, especially with greedy decks that run heavy stuffd

Blast Wave - added it as an extra aoe. Druid is popular, Zoo is gettin stronger, so we need it. It also can give you extra cards, that your opponents can't play around. And it's good with Bloodmage Thalnos, witch is also not a very popular decision. However, pay attention to your hand size if you use the overkill mechanics. If you don't like it, i would replace both of these card with 2x Loot Hoarders

Kalecgos - the best card in the deck by far. This dude can win games by it's own. Most aggressive decks can't deal with it. And against control it can give you extra cards and just be a huge threat

what spells to discover? depends on the situation and choices. If you have enough burn to finish the game - pick something defensive. Other cases - more face damage :)

Why no Power of Creation? I don't really like this card in the deck, mostly because it doesn't fit the main idea of a deck. I played it in the early versions, but it performed really poorly. However if you discover it with Kalecgos and can play it immediately  - do it

Mulligan tips

In general - versus aggro we want to survive. So keep Frostbolt  , Doomsayer   always. If you have both Doomsayer   and Frost Nova - keep them, if you have a coin. Also keep Zilliax on a coin.

Against slower opponents - keep any cycle cards and try to find your win condition

Agains Rogue always keep the Ooze and be careful on turns 3-4. Also they run Sap, so be careful when use Doomsayer.

What about warriors???

Warrior is historically bad matchup for the deck. And nothing changed. We have like 30-40% chanse of winning. Try to keep them without armour with minions and use Alex effectively and you'll have chances. But it's super super tough. If you meet to much warriors and can't deal with them - you probably need to switch the deck. However, i had some good results

What secrets to pick from Arcane Keysmith ?

 A good question.  I cannot give you specific advices, cuz this card is ultra flexible. Against different opponents and game situations it works different ways. Use this card smartly and try to trick your opponents. Keysmith can be very helpful, but you need to analyze the opponents and game situations.


That's my first update guys! Hope you'll find it helpful. If you need more info or have any questions - make sure to hit the comment section. I will be happy to answer!
