I am DeadFaith from team House Of Cards, and im here today to present to you my new control mage deck.
When flame lance was first revealed I was mesmerized with the card and i believed it is the card to push control mage into the meta, and so it did.
Up until now we didnt have a real control mage deck to compete with other control decks, and now here it is, my Control Mage Deck.
The deck relies on early game removal and mid game preparation to finish the game on turn 10-13.
In the early game you have your Zombie Chow and Frostbolt along with Mad Scientist to protect yourself against face damage and helps you kill Acolyte of Pains and Knife Jugglers.
In the mid game you want to have your Duplicate out and try to duplicate Emperor Thaurissan, Sylvanas Windrunner or even Piloted Shredder. Ideally you will have a full hand and manage to duplicate Thaurissan to get insane value, he is known to win games himself just when you dupe him once.
In the late game sustain yourself with Ice Block, Ice Barrier, Antique Healbot and Alextrasza until you can pull out Rhonin comboed with Archmage Antonidas as your finisher
Teched in Kezan Mystic and Harrison Jones for paladin, warrior and mage/hunter matchups.
Any questions or needed explanations in the comments below ^^
if this deck gets to 15 upvotes ill write all the matchup and mulligan guides to go with it.
+ 2x Water Elemental
- 2x Piloted Shredder
Reasoning: I've noticed a big decline in weapon usage so i decided to remove Harrison as he was usually just a dead card or a below average body.
In his place i put in Alextrasza. Instead of one Intel i put in Thalnos as he is a draw and a good buff for arcame missiles from Rhonin and Fireballs from Antonidas
Also removed shredders for Water ellies as they are a bigger threat and produce mkre control options with freezing.
Props to VomitFetishist for ideas ^^
