Matchups

Hardest matchups:i think face hunter is the hardest matchup for this deck ,against face hunter,just try to keep the early cards and play aggressively while trying to survive to the late game.Spell druid are also quite difficult but with decent draw there is a chance you can win.

Big druid is also a hard matchup but winnable with a good starting hand ,don't waste your big board clears as some of their minions are not targetable by spells 

Winnable matchups: Highlander Galakrond rogues are an even matchup that requires you to understand the opponent very well ,remember to kill his lackey in turn 6 and play Khadgar with Deep Freeze and Power of Creation to gain big board presence but do not go all in when opponent haven'tZephrys the Great,if not just give pressure on the board while not over committing  your board and setup lethal with a Alexstrasza while having sticky minions on board.Same case for galakrond rogue but for this matchup you can just apply pressure on the board and play much more aggressively but remember to ping his secret on his lackeys and play spells to trigger his secret while his hand is almost full.

Tempo demon hunter is another winnable matchup where you should just keep your early cards and maintain board presence and freeze his face when you can .

 

Easy Matchup:

Priest decks are easy to win as you can outvalue him easily while still maintaining board presence,just remember to maximise the value gain from your cards,Khadgar with power of creation /deep freeze and conjurer's calling combo.When playing Astronomancer Solarian,just kill him with your cheap spells before they try to steal away your prime 

Warlock decks are easy matchups as well ,just play around his Plague of Flames and Dark Skies and you can outvalue him pretty easily with your big board clears,just don't waste your big board clears on small minions.

I don't think i covered everything ,but just ask me in the comment section if you have trouble playing this deck because it definitely needs time to learn.

This is my first time creating a guide ,please correct me if im wrong sometime ,because there is definitely a better mage player out there 

Substitutions:

-Evocation,+Doomsayer (early board clearance)or Water Elemental (good way to freeze weapon attack good against bomb warrior or demon hunter)or Acidic Swamp Ooze(to destroy weapons,not good for bomb warrior as they might get their weapon back)/Kobold Stickyfinger

Update*

People in the comment section pointed out thatEvocation can be replaced for Ice Barrier which i think is a good replacement 

 -Hippogryph,+Twillight Drake/Azure Explorer

 The server i played in is Asia server ,so matchups popularity will be different.

Add me on HS if u want to see me play Sparks#1524(Asia Server)
