Armani or Sun Cleric?

Posts: 32
I play a Control Mage that doesn't instantly die to aggro. The decklist is like so:

2x Mana Wyrm
Arcane Missiles
2x Frostbolt
2x Loot Hoarder
2x Sorcerer's Apprentice
2x Harvest Golem
2x Shattered Sun Cleric
2x Fireball
2x Polymorph
2x Senjin Shieldmasta'
2x Water Elemental
2x Azure Drake
Faceless Manipulator
2x Boulderfist Ogre
2x Flamestrike
2x Stormwind Champion

So, I saw 3 options to change my deck: 1. Keep as is 2. Replace the Shattered Sun CLerics with Armani Berserkers 3. Replace the loot hoarders with armani berserkers, replace the shattered sun clerics with Acolytes of Pain.

What's my best option?

Seems pretty good as is. If you want stronger anti-aggro then consider losing one Flamestrike for an Arcane Explosion (two Flamestrikes is really too much imo). To further help stem early aggro you might want some cheap spellpower (Thalnos or Kobolds) to beef up you Arcane Missiles and Arcane Explosion. Alternatively Pyromancers are good as an AoE generator, but you'd need more early game spells then too, I honestly don't know why you'd skip Frostbolts (as an example of early spells), such good cards.

EDIT: Replacing one Bolderfist with a Sunwalker or Abomination is another good anti-aggro budget option. Defender of Argus (one only probably) could work well in your deck type too.

I'd recommend Trump's f2p mage deck anytime.

Thank you for the advice! I'll probably replace a boulderfist with a sunwalker, and the clerics with armani berserkers. I plan to put in rag for a stormwind, cairne for an ogre and bloodmage for a loot hoarder once I get them. (I already have frostbolts too, but you're right, they are great cards :) )
