SuperiorDavid posted this on Twitter. He had a record of 19-8 in top 1000 legend, managing to peak at 362L NA. And after playing 4 games myself and winning every single one, I'm starting to think this deck has some serious potential.

Mulligan:
ALWAYS KEEP: Mistress of Mixtures, Plated Beetle, Deepwater Evoker, Balinda Stonehearth
SOMETIMES KEEP: Doomsayer (for aggro), Amplified Snowflurry (against DH or to combo w/ Doomsayer), School Teacher (slower match ups), Barbaric Sorceress w/ Big Spell (for greedy gameplan)

Gameplan:
With this deck, it seems that you have one of two gameplans. Set up a massive board your opponent cannot clear, or board lock minion heavy decks and set up a 2 turn kill.

But in order to set up these gameplans, you need to survive, which is why we run Mistress of MIxtures and Plated Beetle for healing. According to David, the DH match up was favorable due to the healing, removal, and giant threats you can generate. You also have Varden Dawndrasp, Blizzard, and even Magister Dawngrasp to set up multiple AOE freeze turns.

When you cannot set up the giant boards due to pressure, Barbaric Sorceress can be a fantastic way to not only speeden your big spell turns, but you can use it as a way to deny your opponent's spells. For example, you can make Fury or Multistrike cost up to 10 mana against Naga DHs, and play 2 huge dragons for 1 mana whenever it's best.

There's a lot of scamming and long term strategies to consider, but these are a few ways you can clutch wins!
