Strategy[edit | edit source]
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]
|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 Taunt. Oh hey it's Mirror Image! !egamI rorriM s'ti yeh hO|

|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.|

|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.|
|Explosive Runes||Rare||Mage||3||Secret: After your opponent plays a minion, deal 6 damage to it and any excess to their hero. Sometimes it's safer NOT to read the warning signs.|
|Lesser Ruby Spellstone||Rare||Mage||2||Add a random Mage spell to your hand. (Play two Elementals to upgrade.) The final stone undid its master|
Spun into wards by nameless caster
Azari wailed a savage roar
Now sealed in nether, evermore.
|Mana Bind||Rare||Mage||3||Secret: When your opponent cast a spell, add a copy to your hand that costs (0). Nice spell. YOINK!|

|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.|

|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!|

|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.
