I'm looking for some strategic advice here. I just browsed through my recent stats and noticed that during the last few weeks I have had decent to good stats against any class in Arena but Mage, against which I am at a devastating 1-8 record. HSReplay however lists Mage as one of the weaker Arena classes right now, with significantly <50% winrate. So there surely is something I'm doing wrong stategically.
I usually play rather controllish styles in Arena and I think this might be part of the problem. I feel like I have no chance gaining a card advantage over Mage with nearly all of their cards generating other cards and their hero power allowing them to usually take the better trades. So, is early aggression the way to go against them? Or does anyone have other general tips for those matchups?
