Title says it all. If I don’t have Luna’s early, I feel I don’t stand a chance. Nothing sticks, and the one board of giants is laughable in the face of multiple board clears and Supercollider. Games go to fatigue, where they win due to Elysiana. Anyone have experiences? I have thought of including my own Elysiana or weapon removal just for this matchup, since there are a lot of them on the ladder at least in EU ranks 10-5.
Unfortunately Reno mage has a bad match up vs control warrior, unless you play luna pocket galaxy on curve and immediately top deck some of the big boys, but even then it's not a guaranteed win. Try out Highlander Hunter, the match up is much, much better.
I don't think Elysianna would be the right tech. Even with her you'd probably lose the Ely vs Ely late game because of their 10 times better hero power. You need to win earlier than that.
You can try : Youthfull brewmaster to have 2 wishes with Zephrys, but not sure that'd be enough. Otherwise, if you just want to beat Warrior, just add big boyz to your list : astromancer, mecanical whelp things like that.
I've got a good win rate vs warrior, I usually just burn em down with a bunch of fireballs generated from Tony and I also run pyroblast. Try to get at least 2 - 3 fireballs from Tony.
Also you should focus on card draw early game since there's little pressure. Try to draw into lunas fast as possible. Hard Mulligan for card draw or lunas. At turn 8 that turtle guy can sometimes cast Luna for you
Play lunas before you draw alex is the main thing. First het thema out of armour, then tony + Ray of frost tot at least two fireballs and that should give you enough burst. I think matchup is 55-45 for the mage.
