Great to fill the last empty slots in any Mage deck. Not only for a chance of another powerful Fireball or Frostbolt, but also to boost cards such as Mana Wyrm, Arcane Giant and Yogg-Saron, Hope's End.

Possible spells[edit | edit source]

The below table lists all collectible Mage spells in Standard format, representing the range of possible spells generated by Babbling Book. For Wild format listings, see Mage/Wild format.

Name / Desc Rarity Class Cost Description
Arcane Explosion Free Mage 2 Deal 1 damage to all enemy minions. This spell is much better than Arcane Implosion.
Arcane Intellect Free Mage 3 Draw 2 cards. Playing this card makes you SMARTER. And let's face it: we could all stand to be a little smarter.
Arcane Missiles Free Mage 1 Deal 3 damage randomly split among all enemies. You'd think you'd be able to control your missiles a little better since you're a powerful mage and all.
Fireball Free Mage 4 Deal 6 damage. This spell is useful for burning things. If you're looking for spells that toast things, or just warm them a little, you're in the wrong place.
Flamestrike Free Mage 7 Deal 4 damage to all enemy minions. When the ground is on fire, you should not stop, drop, and roll.
Frost Nova Free Mage 3 Freeze all enemy minions. Hey man, that's cold. Literally and metaphorically.
Frostbolt Free Mage 2 Deal 3 damage to a character and Freeze it. It is customary to yell "Chill out!" or "Freeze!" or "Ice ice, baby!" when you play this card.
Mirror Image Free Mage 1 Summon two 0/2 minions with TauntOh hey it's Mirror Image! !egamI rorriM s'ti yeh hO
Polymorph Free Mage 4 Transform a minion into a 1/1 Sheep. There was going to be a pun in this flavor text, but it just came out baa-d.
Breath of Sindragosa Common Mage 1 Deal 2 damage to a random enemy minion and Freeze it. Is it cold in here or is it just Sindragosa?
Cone of Cold Common Mage 4 Freeze a minion and the minions next to it, and deal 1 damage to them. Magi of the Kirin Tor were casting Cubes of Cold for many years before Cones came into fashion some 90 years ago.
Firelands Portal Common Mage 7 Deal 5 damage. Summon a random 5-Cost minion. Come to beautiful Firelands! Where it's "Way nicer than the Abyssal Maw!"'
Flame Geyser Common Mage 2 Deal 2 damage. Add a 1/2 Elemental to your hand. Oh, a wise geyser eh?
Freezing Potion Common Mage 0 Freeze an enemy. This is delicious! Oh no. BRAIN FREEEEEEEZE!
Frozen Clone Common Mage 3 Secret: After your opponent plays a minion, put 2 copies of it into your hand. It's like déjà vu, times two.
Ice Barrier Common Mage 3 Secret: When your hero is attacked, gain 8 Armor. This is Rank 1. Rank 2 is Chocolate Milk Barrier.
Mirror Entity Common Mage 3 Secret: After your opponent plays a minion, summon a copy of it. "You go first." - Krush'gor the Behemoth, to his pet boar.
Shatter Common Mage 2 Destroy a Frozen minion. What's cooler than being cool?
Blizzard Rare Mage 6 Deal 2 damage to all enemy minions and Freeze them. This spell can be very Entertaining.
Counterspell Rare Mage 3 Secret: When your opponent casts a spell, Counter it. What's the difference between a mage playing with Counterspell and a mage who isn't? The mage who isn't is getting Pyroblasted in the face.
Mana Bind Rare Mage 3 Secret: When your opponent cast a spell, add a copy to your hand that costs (0). Nice spell. YOINK!
Molten Reflection Rare Mage 4 Choose a friendly minion. Summon a copy of it. Dang, I'm looking pretty hot!
Potion of Polymorph Rare Mage 3 Secret: After your opponent plays a minion, transform it into a 1/1 Sheep. Tastes like Baaaaananas.
Vaporize Rare Mage 3 Secret: When a minion attacks your hero, destroy it. Rumor has it that Deathwing brought about the Cataclysm after losing a game to this card. We may never know the truth.
Volcanic Potion Rare Mage 3 Deal 2 damage to all minions. The secret ingredient in Kazakus's award-winning chili recipe.
Cabalist's Tome Epic Mage 5 Add 3 random Mage spells to your hand. What's in there? I bet it's cookie recipes!
Forbidden Flame Epic Mage 0 Spend all your Mana. Deal that much damage to a minion. WARNING: This flame is not to be used unless you are a licensed acolyte of the Old Gods.
Glacial Mysteries Epic Mage 8 Put one of each Secret from your deck into the battlefield. The secret is in the frosting.
Greater Arcane Missiles Epic Mage 7 Shoot three missiles at random enemies that deal 3 damage each. Wow, and I thought Arcane Missiles was great!
Ice Block Epic Mage 3 Secret: When your hero takes fatal damage, prevent it and become Immune this turn. Ice is nice, and will suffice!
Meteor Epic Mage 6 Deal 15 damage to a minion and 3 damage to adjacent ones. When you absolutely, positively, have to kill all the dinosaurs.
Primordial Glyph Epic Mage 2 Discover a spell.
Reduce its Cost by (2). It's the Ancient Tol'vir symbol for "Whoops!"
Pyroblast Epic Mage 10 Deal 10 damage. Take the time for an evil laugh after you draw this card.
Simulacrum Epic Mage 3 Copy the lowest Cost minion in your hand. It's like déjà vu, times two.
Spellbender Epic Mage 3 Secret: When an enemy casts a spell on a minion, summon a 1/3 as the new target. While it's fun to intercept enemy lightning bolts, a spellbender much prefers to intercept opposing Marks of the Wild. It just feels meaner. And blood elves... well, they're a little mean.
Open the Waygate Legendary Mage 1 Quest: Cast 6 spells that didn't start in your deck.
Reward: Time Warp. Although powerful, the incantation is simple. It’s just a jump to the left, and then a step to the right.
