This is the Muzzy Tempo Mage Ratrace Fast Climb Nov 16. Most seasons there are a group of players who race to legend when a new season starts. I saw Muzzy around 24 hours in, I don’t think he had slept and he had used this deck for most of the climb. He was sitting at rank 3 I think, it’s a good choice to race with as it a fast deck with plenty of burn.
I thought I’d share it if you wanna hit the ladder hard and fast. It’s only going to get easier as more pro players hit legend and the competition drops a little. I think Tempo Mage is going to be popular again this season, so get familiar with it if you want to do well.
This is the Dog Tempo Mage w Rhonin Barnes Sept 16 he was playing on stream. It’s interesting to see a different Tempo Mage list doing well and there is some decent synergy in this deck. Obviously, the dream is to get a 1/1 Rhonin from Barnes, butt here are some other strong combos.
You’re almost going to get some Fireballs from Archmage Antonidas. There is less burn in the core cards than most Mage lists and more card draw to help you get to a big combo turn quicker. I like using Rhonin, the fireworks that go off with Flamewaker and Missiles is too much fun!
Give it a go and see how you do, it was performing well at high legend for Dog.
The resident Hearthstone Tempo Mage expert has been at it again hitting the top spot, this is the Asmodai Cosplaygrill Rank 1 Legend Tempo Mage Sep 16.
Cosplaygrill hit rank one legend last month with his Tempo Mage list. The best decks are always evolving and changing with the META and this list from Asmodai has a few tweaks that make this list even more effective right now.
The Arcane Explosion is an interesting card, but helps vs all the aggro Shamans on the ladder. The double Tome, Emperor, Archamge, greedy top end means this deck can outvalue a lot of control decks. The Forgotten Torch adds even more burn, and after playing it for 20 or so games I can confirm it’s incredibly strong.
I’m having a tough time vs Druids, but have a positive win ratio vs all other classes.
Tired of losing because your Yogg decides to Pyroblast your face? Losing with Mage because a 10 drop is too heavy and you need something big before then? Just don’t have Yogg in your collection?
This Kolento Tempo Mage with No Yogg deck is the answer. He was playing this on stream at high legend, any deck Kolento builds is capable of hanging at the top end of the ladder.
It’s a throw back a little bit to the older lists. There are two Water Elementals, and Ragnaros the Firelord as the highest cost minion. So pure tempo plays all the way up the curve till you hit Raggy.
This is the Thijs High Legend Tempo-Book Mage Deck. It was interesting to see his build with Babbling Book, and it was interesting to see him going on a pretty decent win streak as he ranked up.
Babbling Book has turned out to be a really good card in Tempo Mage and has become an inclusion in all tempo Mage decks now.
This is the latest Forsen Barnes Karazhan Tempo Mage Deck he’s been playing on ladder and doing pretty well with.
I like seeing a Mage deck with Archmage Antonidas and Rhonin. You don’t see these two in the same list often, but the synergy is insane if you can pull it off.
Archmage Antonidas is still a really strong threat. This rank one deck from Rooftrellen made excellent use of this card as a finisher.
Mulligan Guide for Tempo Mage
You always want all or as many of the following cards when doing a mulligan for Tempo Mage depending on your opponent:
- Mana Wyrm
- Mirror Image
- Sorcerer’s Apprentice
- Cult Sorcerer
If you needed any more convincing that Babbling Book is a sick card in Tempo Mage, check out this Rooftrellen Rank 1 Legend Tempo Mage w Babbling Book. Rooftrellen has already hit rank 1 legend on NA with this list.
It looks like a more of a greedy control list with double Cabalist’s Tome and Emperor Thaurissan, but it’s obviously working out perfectly.
This deck has plenty of burn, lots of reload with the Tome’s and Arcane Intellect, some potential for fireworks with Archmage Antonidas and discounted spells, and of course Yogg-Saron.
Here is another Babbling Book Mage deck. This is the CosplayGrill Babbling Book Tempo Mage Deck he was playing on stream and when I was watching he was in top 5 Legend ranks, which is pretty insane so soon after the release of the new card.
I prefer this over the Reynad Babbling Book Mage list. It makes sense to have the Emperor Thurissan and Archmage Antonidas and slow the game down a little.
You can control the board early and reduce a load of spells to do some crazy Archmage turns or just burn away with Flamewakers.
Mulligan Guide for Babbling Book Tempo Mage
Mulligan for those cheap early removal spells, 2 drops, and the Babbling Book. You can drop Babbling Book at any point in the game, the spell is random.
With the release of Babbling Book yesterday I’m checking out all the Pro’s testing this card. This is the Reynad Babbling Book Tempo Mage Deck he was playing on stream.
The card is actually a lot better than I, and a lot of other people thought. You can drop this on turn one, pick up a spell and see where to go from there.
It’s the unpredictability of the spell that has the most impact I think. Tempo Mage can be pretty predictable, but it’s hard to play around a spell that could be anything.
Babbling Book Tempo Mage Mulligan Strategy
Mulligan as you would a normal Tempo Mage, look for the early removal and 2 drop minions. The difference here is that you can keep Babbling Book in your opening hand, you can drop it at any point in the game really, it’s a flexible card.
Some of the best and highest skilled Hearthstone games are streamed by Thijs during the day. He tends to play a different deck or two each day and this is the Thijs Giants Yogg Portal Legendary Mage Deck he was playing recently.
There have been a few Tempo Mage builds with the new Arcane Giants but I like this list best so far. It slows the game down a bit and gives you time to lower the cost of the giants and control the board.
