"Mana Wyrm Please!" - Turn 1 


If you like casting a lot of spells and gunning down your opponent with fire and ice, then this is the deck for you! Crush and dominate the early game with Mana Wyrm and Mad Scientist. While you have minions on the board, extend your lead with Flamecannon and Frostbolt. The main strategy for this deck is to combo your Flamewaker or Archmage Antonidas with Spare Parts (coming from Clockwork Gnomes and Mechanical Yetis) and to even make them cheaper with Sorcerer's Apprentice and Emperor Thaurissan.


  • STRONG vs.
    • Druid, Midrange Hunter, Priest, Rogue, Handlock
  • WEAK vs.
    • Face Hunter, Zoolock, Control Warrior



  • Get your early minions and lock them out with your spells

  • Flamewaker kills their 1 health creature
  • Flamecannon is super effective against Animal Companion

  • Keep the Clockwork Gnome for Mirror Entity
  • Against Freeze Mage, your Mirror Entity can backfire as their Doomsayer proc's immediately

  • Mirror Image is good against Truesilver Champion, but vulnerable to Consecration

  • Mechanical Yeti and Azure Drake are the 4-attack magical minions to defeat them
  • Don't get Cabal Shadow Priest'd in turn 6
  • Minions hit the face, spells clear the board
  • Frostbolting the face prevents them from attacking
  • Flamecannon is MVP as it kills anything

  • Watch out for Fire Elemental in turn 6
  • Track their overload and coin (if they have it)

  • Keep your burn spells for the face and burst them down in the late game

  • Mirror Image is insane!
  • Freezing their face can limit their options
