You are right. I tired to lvl my mage by loses and switch on pally. It is realy OP after modern mage. Main mage problem is in what most mage spells dont worth to use in common cases. There are spells like sheep, frost nova, mirrow image and another arcane mussles. Also mage specific minions are bad. Rare Kilin Tor Mage and Ethernal arcanist are the worst class-specific expert minions in game. Only warrior's Armorsmith is close to them. Mage power is the weakest power in game. If you use it every 2-3 rounds or often, you do something realy wrong.
So, in common cases mage has to play from neutral minions. You should remember, what mage is just 1 class in game, which can not buff minions. So you need to play from minions what dont need buff and/or can buff themself/another minions. First are lepper gnome and loot hoarder, second - shaterred sun cleric, dark iron dwarf, defender of argus. Enraged - amani berserker, raging worgen, gurubashi berserker. Add to them mage direct damage spells - frost bolt, fireball and pyroblast, and you almost get 30 cards. For last spots you may add some aoe dmg like flamestrike or blizzard, or what ever you want.
And it will be great deck, like deck, presented Bruceder a little earlier. But it will not help you against agro pally or agro warlock or control druid or giant decks or another top epic/legendary decks. To play against them you need same epic/legendary deck, so buy or farm 3k dust, and craft your giants.
