MrShine Plays: JulpaFTW’s Control Mage

Happy holidays everyone! It's the season for giving, and JulpaFTW gave us a present a few days ago in the form of a snazzy new control mage decklist.

Happy holidays everyone! It’s the season for giving, and JulpaFTW gave us a present a few days ago in the form of a snazzy new control mage decklist.

I thought the idea was a good one so I decided to spend a few hours on the ladder testing it out. I did have to substitute in The Black Knight in place of Dr. Boom because I didn’t have one yet, and while I think it was a bit weaker taunts are still very prevalent in the meta so it wasn’t terrible.

Take a look at the video above for a quick (more comical) look at some of the fun things I encountered while playing with this deck.  For those of you looking for a bit more “meat”, you can see about 2 hours of less-edited footage from my test below after the decklist.

Ultimately, I felt like this deck had some real strengths, especially against Warrior and Rogue.  It was weakest against more aggressive decks like zoo and Hunter, but I think that could be somewhat remedied by substituting in a few Explosive Sheep. I’ll have to test it out more and get deeper in ranked before forming a more fully informed opinion, but my initial reaction is the deck is both fun and effective.
