Hi there again. In my quest to the golden mage I've been trying several mage decks. While my favorite is Hotform's Tempo Mage, it gets old quick, I mean, for 500 wins, one wants to shake up once in a bit. I created recently an N'Zoth (http://www.hearthpwn.com/decks/564122-nzoth-tempo-mage) list, but it wasn't doing super fine.
I tried re-analizing the main strenghts of current standard tempo lists and it's majorly Spell Damage minions (and not you Faceless Summoner!) to go hand to hand with burn spells which can get you some mana effective removals or face damage in the end of the game.
With the success of Dragon Warrior I tried looking back at these cards, dragon cards, which were my favorite back in the Malylock days, and started creating a new list with them in mind.
This is NOT a tempo list. It has tempo elements which will be your gains from incresingly snowballing spell damage and Brann interactions, and of course Yogg Saron is the icing on the cake. I actually haven't settled for him or Deathwing, as they are somewhat REALLY close in intent: Board clear and huge threat on board. I might switch to Deathwing for the dragon interaction.
I've thought about Malygos but he's very risky without Thaurissan, but I feel Thaurissan is not really fit for this deck to justify only the Malygos interaction.
That's it, enjoy!
EDIT: Currently testing out with Deathwing, so far, it's good, though it doesn't get you from way back behind, like lifepoints, so it's still experimental.
-1 Drakonid Crusher +1 Forbidden Fire
-1 Polymorph +Ooze (disconsider this if you aren't seeing too many warriors)
-Brann +Acolyte of Pain
-Chillmaw +Ragnaros. This was out of too much salt vs Cthun Warriors. As always, if seeing more aggro, Chillmaw. If more control, Ragnaros in this slot.
Now with Karazhan cards! Still in test phase.
