Hi people. This looks like a pretty fun and strong Mage deck in current meta. You defeat your opponent by using your enganced* hero power and Brann helps a lot with some cool combos;

Card Choices:

Mage Cards (23); Editing...

Shivering Sorceress: Very nice 1 mana card, strong versus aggro decks. If you get her with a wildfire, it's the most solid start. Don't replace or you'll be weaker vs aggro.

 

Wildfire: Nothing much to say. This is the key card. If you get one on turn 1 it's the best opening. ''Unreplaceable''.

 

Amplified Snowflurry: Another nice and strong class card for mage, and extra good for hero power decks. Just don't forget that you don't have to use the free hero power the same turn you play him. You can play this on turn 2 and use your free hero power on turn 5. It can be a little confusing so be careful. Don't replace this neither.

 

Arcane Intellect: Nothing much to say, Drawing 2 cards for 3 mana was always good, is still good. If you are having trouble getting a Wildfire at start, this one can be very helpful. But don't use this against aggro decks if you have your 1-2-3 mana minions in your hand.

 

Ice Barrier: Classic defensive secret. Very usefull in current meta. That 8 armor can be life saver both early and end game. Nice synergy with Snowblind Harpy as well.

 

Pyromaniac: This is a must card for hero power decks. Very nice combo with Reckless Apprentice, especially if you have enchanted* fireblast. You can draw many cards in a single turn.

 

Neutral Cards (7); Editing...

 

Mulligans:

Most of the decks in current meta are aggro ones and there are some controls. So i won't write a detailed guide for each class for now cos mulligan is pretty much the same for all.

 

Aggro: Try to get a Wildfire for sure. Then a Shivering Sorceress and Amplified Snowflurry. Never keep anything with 3 and 3+ mana. Get your 1-2 mana cards at start.

 

Control: If you think your oppenent has a control deck you can try to get 2x Wildfires and Shivering Sorceress again.

Best Brann Combos:

lf you can use and trade Drakefire Amulet wisely; Brann Bronzebeard + Deepwater Evoker = 20 armor + draw a card (very usefull against aggro decks)

 

If you start with the coin and can keep it for end game; Brann Bronzebeard + The Coin + Mordresh Fire Eye = 20 face and board damage;

 Replacements:

There are some core cards you just shouldn't replace like Wildfire, Pyromaniac, Reckless Apprentice, Magister Dawngrasp, Mordresh Fire Eye and Brann Bronzebeard. If you replace those it will be completely a different deck and you'll lose most of the key plays and the whole fun part itself.

 

But If you don't have enough dust to create some cards like Kalecgos, Rune of the Archmage and School Teacher you can replace them with some tech or taunt cards to counter aggro decks or some other battlecry minions for some extra brann plays. Here is some fitting cards;

 

Legendaries;

 

Commander Sivara: Would be great to get 2 more Wildfires using her before turn 5-6 but it's just too rare to happen. So i don't recommend her in this deck. You can still try if you want.

 

Balinda Stonehearth: I tried her. Cool if you draw Drakefire Amulet and summon 2 big dragons on turn 7. But i usually trade amulets to get my wildfires and get 10 armor with Deepwater Evoker against aggro. You also play amulet free with Kalecgos and it's a strong end game play.

 

Zola the Gorgon: Could be usefull in such situations. Like getting Deepwater Evoker for getting some extra armor against aggro or Reckless Apprentice for clearing the board with enhanced* hero power.

 

Queen Azshara: I tried her but since this is not a spell heavy deck she stayed dead in my hand most of the times. If you are a fan you can add her with some more spells. 

 

Mutanus the Devourer: Tbh i don't have this card but eating two best minions from opponents deck with a Brann combo could be a game winning play. The chance is still too low tho.

 

Epics; Editing...

 Videos: 

I'll share some full gameplay videos on my Youtube channel soon. So you can learn how to play this deck more effectively against any type of opponent.

Update 15.05: I made some cool changes in the list. Now the deck is more defensive against whole those aggro decks around (like spell hunters, dhunters, mech mages). If you manage to eat Tavish, Master Marksman with Mutanus the Devourer, it's a %99 win against spell hunter. I also added one Mailbox Dancer to get a free The Coin. So we can make Brann + Mordresh 20 face damage combo even we go first and don't get the coin at start.

 Some wins with new deck list;

 Going with 90% win rate atm;
