Still using Pyroblast in our decks?

After the nerf, I doubt anyone still keeping Pyroblast in their decks.

10 cost for 10 damage is not worth it, and it takes your whole turn.

Previously when we played a novice engineer in turn 10 there is chance to top deck a Pyroblast to turn the tide.

But now if we draw into 1 Pyroblast in turn 4- 9 it is likely a dead card as you can't use it until turn 10.

For me, I am now trying to utilize Archmage Antonidas with low cost spells to do the same damage at turn 8 -9.

Honestly, I dont think it's worth it. 75% of my games dont make it to turn 10 anyway. Hunter rush deck all day long...

Running 1 pyro is still good after the nerf. 2 is overkill.

But the truth is after all these nerfs mages are not competitive in constructed anymore. It's still good in Arena though.

This patch BUFFED mages, by tuning down the potential of some key aggro minions. The nerf only affected Rush decks, who relied a lot on closing the game around turn 8. Control mages have really an easier time with less DiD Argus and Blood imps around. You can still keep 2 pyros and do fine.
