Welcome to the Mage forum! We made this thread to be a friendly place in the tavern where new players can come to learn more about the Mage class. Here we will gather guides created by the community designed to help Mage players, and we are always on the lookout for more!

Below are a couple of them to get you started, but if you know of any others, or if you are planning on writing one yourself, let us know! While these are not the only ways to build a deck, they are a good place to start if you want to know who fired first; the Kirin Tor Mage or the Ethereal Arcanist.

Made a post on the forum for my favorite mage deck. More of a conservative play style focused around clearing enemy minions from the board.

Having Mana Wyrms in your deck are really good especially when you are casting lots of spells. Personally I love to have argent commanders, firestricker, arcane missles, and ogars all in my deck.
