RDU Tempo Mage Deck Winter Prelims 2017
Tempo Mage is still a decent deck and fun to climb the ladder with. No new cards from the most recent expansion, but with a more mid-heavy list like this one you can advance up the ranks in the current META.
This is one of the more greedy Reno Mage lists. With Tempo mage suffering in the current META this is the best Mage list.
Tempo Mage was the strongest Mage deck for months but was finally dethroned after the release of Mean Streets of Gadgetzan.
Reno Mage lists are much stronger in the current META and although this deck may not be seen as one of the Tier-One lists it’s strong enough to take to legend for sure.
The only real drawback is the lack of card draw, but if you manage your resources well you can climb the ladder with a good win %.
Lifecoach and Thijs has been playing a lot of Reno Mage the last week or so at high legend and this is the list they are working with.
Some different tech choices to other Reno Mages so it’s worth trying out if you’re enjoying the Reno decks.
With the release of Gadgetzan a new wave of Reno decks have emerged using some of the new cards.
This is the Dog Gadgetzan Reno Mage w Kazakus Alexstrasza and few of the other new cards.
Decent list, very strong ladder deck and although the games can take a while you should have a good win rate.
This is a really good Reno Mage deck with Kazakus and some other new cards from Mean Streets of Gadgetzan.
Reno decks received a huge boost with some of the new cards so expect to see plenty of lists with various tech cards.
This is the Freezing Potion HS Mage Card from the upcoming expansion Mean Streets of Gadgetzan.
It’s a Mage class spell and the card text reads: Freeze an enemy.
You can get Freezing Potion by opening packs from the Mean Streets of Gadgetzan set.
This is the Greater Arcane Missiles HS Mage Card from the upcoming expansion Mean Streets of Gadgetzan.
It’s a Mage class spell and the card text reads: Shoot three missiles at random enemies that deal 3 damage each.
You can get Greater Arcane Missiles by opening packs from the Mean Streets of Gadgetzan set.
