I absolutely love firelands portal. It an amazing tempo play, if you have an even board or are even slightly behind this card can turn the entire game around on turn 7, gets even better if you can keep azure drake alive.
I replaced a poly with Sorcerer's Apprentice, it's nice early game if you can get off a fireball or frostbolt on the cheap and continue to control board.
An extremely cheap budget deck.
Please post any comments suggestions below!!
Mulligan Strategy: You are absolutely fishing for Mana Wyrm + low cost spells. I always tend to keep frostbolt as well regardless of if I draw Mana Wyrm.
Keep Beckoner of Evil, or Cult Sorcerer. I also tend to hold onto twilight elder especially if I have the coin,
C'thun! So I would only recommend keeping C'thun if you also draw at least a couple early drops. C'thun is the finisher in this deck, but you can easily win games at lower ranks with just the tempo minions and great mage spells.
UPDATED: Here is an upgraded non-budget version for those have been asking.
Deck I made on a free account.
I was able to build this deck using only the dust from the free packs you get and the first free arena run.
If there is enough interest I will make a brief guide on how to play it.

I make these decks to give f2p players some fun decks to try out instead of just druid c'thuns. I sometimes sacrifice making the deck slightly better to put in new and fun cards. Personally I'd rather have fun and win 50% percent of the time then net deck and win 60% of the time.
Trying out 3 different budget decks including this one as of 3/6/18. I will update with my win/loss ratio and rank =)

Can i replace any card for Frost Lich Jaina or isnt worth ? Still new to the game :)
Why is this in the Standard section???
this deck is wild now due to having azure drake,change it please
(i really still don't playing RANKED matches, because i'm a begginer, but i want say u bros my casual xperience after got this deck)
so, i needed create a account here to say 2 u bros, can u really trust in this deck, at least 2 start in game, it's my case, i started today and so i started found somecheap deck builded, and i get this because it's the most rated, so i read that some guys have problems with it, but i need say, after i finish the build, with ALL CARDS LISTED, bros I STILL WITH 0 LOOSES ! I PLAYED LIKE 10 GAMES AND ALL I EZLLY WIN !!
this deck is very usefull to win before 10 mana, and A LOT STRONGER TO 10 MANA!
trusth in this build !!! ( to casual at least ! )
This deck is way too slow now, I think I have 10% winrate with this deck
Maybe because the deck is more than half a year old and was last updated about that long ago as well.
Guys I'm rookie here, but i need to get 5-th rank before season ends.
Can i obtain it with this dec? Pls help.
This is more of a deck to have fun with than to climb ladder with now. The meta has changed. Build something newer if you want to win in constructed.
Need to get to 5th rank? I'm just curious about what was going on in your life that it was necessary for you to achieve 5th rank when you were already 20 days into the season.
I would hazard to say that, if you have to ask what deck will get you to rank 5, then NO deck would be able to get you to rank 5 because you lack the prerequisite knowledge and experience.
C'thun is for dumbasses anyway
Love this deck, awesome. I only replaced one Faceless Summoner for Doomcaller and Sen'Jin Shieldmasta for Blizzard. Works excellent.
does this deck still work in gadgetzan ??
This deck needs a second Flamestrike as the current meta is to aggro oriented.
I agree, and sometimes its not even fast enough. How about the volcanic potion?
This deck looks pretty good but I don't have a few cards.
Someone could tell me what can I use instead?
I have just one Cult Sorcerer, not two
I don't have Sorcerer's Apprentice
I don't have any Disciple of C'Thun
Same goes for Twilight Elder
And I have just one Azure Drake
Basically I don't have everything that it's important. XD
