Main issue I am having right now is whether to cut down luna or not out of the deck. I can't find any suitable replacement, and the card itself is still great agaisn't control Warrior. Without it, Control warrior match-up is near impossible.
As for Conjurer's calling, its still fine IMO, can still do strong plays with it. Luna is the one that hurt the most.
how does a deck i win games with all the time and never play luna affected by a luna nerf? luna is strictly a "i"m bending your ass over and pouring in the sand for good measure" card? The mage highlander deck has so many stupid ass mana tempo gains it isnt funny. here play pilgrim and cast a free 10 mana yogg...seriously wtf. The deck can withstand tempo loss because it makes up for it in so many ways.
hearthbore still the same as ever and so is this website...its literally more fun to troll here than anything... worthless place for info but great to make fun of lames. my pihole kills every ad here to so you dont make shit serving anything to me either....
After playing non-stop today. can be easily concluded that Mage will at most end up being a tier 3 the rest of this expansion. Its too slow to gain momentum to win agaisn't warrior on any of its decks.
Khadgar Mage is too slow and incredibly suspectible to aggro right now.
Cyclone Mage doesn't generate enough value to compete with regular mid-range or control decks.
Secret mage is mostly a meme.
It fucking sucks man, blizzard really can't do any real balancing without killing classes for entire expansions.
You may continue to see Reno Mage in tournament lineups, now that they have switched back to Conquest mode and each player is required to play 4 classes.
On the ladder, mage is heavily disadvantaged against the (seemingly) most popular class, both against Mech Hunter and Reno Hunter. And, while Warrior was hurt as well by the nerfs, Mage was hurt far worse. It used to be a selling point that Mage was favored vs. Control Warrior, and I think that advantage has shrunk or died completely.
It is difficult to imagine having a lot of fun or success with mage on the ladder in this environment.

Helpful Clarification on Forbidden Topics for Hearthstone Forums:
Enjoying Americans winning in the Olympics is forbidden because it is political. A 14 plus page discussion of state-sponsored lawsuits against a multi-national corporation based on harassment, discrimination, and wrongful death allegations is apparently not political enough to raise an issue.
Ridiculous, this whining is so ridiculous. I don't mean to sound like the Joker but really to my dear Mage players in this thread... I mean did... did your balls fall off? Since when was Conj. mage the only way to play!? OP, have you even tried anything creative. new or innovative? It's not been 24hrs since the nerfs, the meta hasn't even settled in yet and already I'm seeing people declaring the class dead. My mind is blown, because I have had zero problems climbing the ladder with Mage every season and I was NEVER running Conj. Calling at all. I've been winning with tempo mage, secret mage, hero power/ragnaros mage and singleton mage (despite not even having Reno) and I'm sure theres more builds I haven't even discovered yet. Come on guys, you have brains, use them. You're lazy, you want to just grab the quick and easy netdecks that are most well known and when that doesn't work your saying "welp, I guess the class is a meme now". Be better.
