This is my current deck:

Ive been having a lot of success so far with it, but Im looking for ways to make it even better. I have some doubts in lepper gnomes and wolf riders but im unsure what to replace them with.

Any suggestions? also keep in mind i dont have any legendaries or expensive cards yet, only basic and low budget cards to work with.

Try out this one it's cheap and effective vs most opponents unless they have lots of taunts: http://www.hearthpwn.com/decks/45379-saturos-new-meta-aggro-mage

Instead of thalnos you can use geomancer or an extra draw cardsince draw power is really important in these kinds of decks or an extra elven archer(yes it's lame but archer + ping can kill many 2 drops).

i need help myself, so let's exchange some info
i seem to dominate other aggro decks but getting crushed by control decks
have you gotten good results vs druids/shamans?
or do you have any decents results vs control decks in general?

why do you need 2 flamestrikes? does your game constantly go to lategame? in your favor or in theirs?

2 ice lances are kindof a must in aggro
you dont need 2 flamestrikes
i'd get antonidas as fast as i can cos you wont be beating control without it any time soon.
i'd swap out at least one of the wolfriders for arcane golem.
and argent commanders are kinda high on the curve especially two of them.

the rest looks okayish but if i were you i'd play something controlish similar to trumps FTP deck cos without antonidas you'll be struggling a lot vs druids shamans and warriors.

oh and use knife jugglers :P

@Pimpempup

I havent played much ranked because I started playing this game less than 2 weeks ago, but using this deck I went straight to 15 from 25 pretty much

Back then when I used just 1 flamestrike, Ive had many games where i really needed it and didnt get, so having 2 greatly increases my odds of having one at the right moment. It also allows me to be much more flexible on when to use it since i know i will still have the other one for a real emergency.

Maybe when i get better at this game and start winning before turn 7, ill remove them :)

I actually did have 2 ice lances just before making this thread but i ended up removing them because in half my games i had nothing left to combo them with

Two ice lances on the same target will give you 4 damage.

Also drop a flame strike and go with a blizzard

Ye what others have said, you dont need FS or Blizzard. If you need to use them you have no more fire power left to finish them off. You dont need poly either imo.

Check the deck recommended by mmoFan but I havent had much success with that one but my own once is based on it.

Ive always reached Rank 4-5 with my Aggro mage

You need more card draw imo or else you will run out of gas fast. Add a loot or a coldlight oracle..

@PimEmUp If you are doing well your opponent generally will have no or just one minion on board so Arcane explosion isnt very good.

You definitely need 2X Soc Apprentice to dump out your cards like MI/AM/IceLance. Id pick WE over Yeti simply to stop Rogue/Warrior/Druids/Paladin to attack you and your minions. Especially Paladin since that 2 health heal for them is important.

As others already said, 2 Flamestrikes feel completely out of place. Replace them with lower mana costs. If you don't like Ice Lance, you can try with useful early minions like Harvest Golems or Faerie Dragons.

What can I say, just try to be original, you are way to " I watch stream to compensate for the lack of thinking decks" style .
