Hi guys, I'm Yueshen.
Chinese players and their decks are kind of unknown to the world, but there are still some good players and interesting decks. You may heard about the Chinese Priest that Savjz used, and also you may know the Freeze Aggro Mage made by Tiddler that Gosugamers posted before. I will share some interesting decks in CN servers in future. Hope you can get what you what.
The Chinese player called (life is a trip)#5671 used this Mage deck easy climb to Legend #62 in CN Server.
We can see there are a lot of spells to work with Flamewaker.
This Aggro Mage is strange with its playing style. As the Aggro Mage you should clear your opponent's board and go face at the same time. You also can find some Tempo Mage's cards such as Unstable Portal and Mad Scientist-Secret combo in this deck to help you getting advantage early.
Ice Blockcan help you to survive one more turn then you may can draw enough damage to win the game.
I will not say a lot about how to play it, in my perpective it must be better for people to understand after trying it.
Thanks to everyone who took the time to read this. I plan to continue sharing Chinese Decks in future.
"Life is a trip"#5671 changed a little bit and used this hit Legend #7 in CN Server.
Oil Rogue: You have a lot of damage, just think yourself is a Face Mage. Easy win for this. (2-0 100% winrate against Rogue.)
Midrange Druid: You are faster than Druid. If you can play Flamewaker or Antonidas with your cheap spells, you have a huge chance of winning.( 9-2 78% winrate against Druid)
Midrange Hunter/Face Hunter: You can clear Hunter's board and deal damage at same time. 100%winrate against Face Hunter, and Midrange Hunter is much less than Face Hunter in China. (13-3 81%winrate against Hunter.)
Handlock: Easy win. (11-4 73% winrate against Warlock)
Priest: Priest is kind of passive. If you can deal some damage with your minion, it will be easy for you to win the game against Priest. (3-0 100% winrate against Priest)
Grim Patron Warrior, Paladin, Freeze Mage
Not good matchup:
Control Warrior: Too much armor, and it is easy for warrior to clear your board. If Control Wrrior doesn't Draw good, you still have chance to win. (9-6 60% winrate against warrior)
Zoo: Too many minions, some times you will worry about to use spells clear the board or go face.
Mech Mage: Same reason as Zoolock.
Go face as much as you can usually. Try to deal damage with your minions at the early game.
Hope you guys can have fun with this made-in-china deck. haha
Thanks for taking time to read this!
I tell you guys there's some serious algorithms within this deck although I'm only at Rank 10, but I have never destroyed FH and zoos so easily in my life. I personally don't like pyroblast, so I replaced it with a Dr. Boom instead, everything else is identical. I hope this does not disrupt the laws of the deck.
Have any of you had magic happening with the pyroblast in the deck? If a lot of people say so, I might just change it back.
Since I don't have Archmage Antonidas and Pyroblast, I have subbed in a Flamestrike and Polymorph as insurance against bad matchups(?) with this deck, such as Patron Warrior and Taunt Druid. I'm not particularly sure of this but if you have any advice on any other subs?
I'm always skeptical of decks with so many x1s, but this is working out pretty well so far. DESTROYING a face hunter because I got my Flamewaker early is awesome though, but I feel like I would have lost if I didn't get it.
Replacement 1x Piloted Shredder for 1x Water Elemental for synergy ICE lance
Wow this deck is insane I went 3 - 0 making this video and the tempo swings I gained in this video were insane! Not to mention if you all skip to the third game I literally top-decked all the damage I needed to beat this priest the most insane top-decking I have ever seen in my time playing hearthstone... LOL IT'S SO DISGUSTING... BUT WE WON :D ! Thank you for this deck guide I will be playing this deck on ladder for sure! Enjoy the gameplay ;p !
crap deck, not enough creatures & to draw dependant
ok so i know this is probably a bit late but i thought the same thing, but the thing is that this deck runs counterspell and you dont want to just give your opponent a 1 cost spell for them to break your counterspell
You made me spit my drink because I laughed so hard when I read that Bloodmage Thalnos is bad.
Syncesta, they said it's "not that great in this deck". Nowhere do I see them saying Bloodmage is bad. Also, did you really spit your drink? Really?
"And spending 2 mana for an extra damage point is usually not worth when the body attached is a 1/1."
That explicitly says that Bloodmage Thalnos is not worth the cost.
This is a great deck if you're more than familiar with the Mage class. I just started using it and I haven't lost a match in five straight games. It's really fun to play and there is plenty of room for recovery just in case you make a mistake. I'm going to continue testing it, but for the most part it's spot on for an Aggro deck. The best one I've used yet.
With this deck, I'm finding that I can easily out-Face the Face Hunters. It's such an amazing feeling. Zoo Lock is a bit trickier to go against but they are less prevalent than the cancer Hunters. I completely agree, this is a fantastic Aggro deck.
I'm about to recommence testing on jeeves over pyroblast. Unfortunately you lose Archmage, but I'm thinking of -1x Piloted -1x Arcane Intellect, +1 Jeeves +1 ???[Flamecannon?]
Actually on second thought one Jeeves is really strong and I think I just need to practice what I've shown you.
The reason I am down to 2 secrets is that I don't like drawing them. 2 makes it worse when I do draw them (mad scientist becomes vanilla 2/2 instead of 2/2 draw 1 and put into play) but 2 means I draw them 50% less frequently. I think the only change I am going to make from shown is -1 Arcane Intellect +1 Counterspell / Mirror Entity
Nice deck.But i havent Archmage Antonidas and Pyroblast.Create Malywalker.THX
I made a deck similar to this right when Flamewaker was released. It's VERY fun and the burst damage potential is off the charts. I felt like it was too draw-dependent (if you don't draw Flamewaker, gg) but maybe this variant is more robust.
Any room for Bloodmage Thalnos in place of a Loot Hoarder?
any replacement for antonidas?
Decent deck. Once you fall behind it kind of feels like there is no coming back though
It's OK. Those 3 secrets can be really clutch or clumsy
"Chinese Deck" it must be cool! PogChamp
