"Looking for trouble? I'll make it double!"

Khadgar Mage (also known as Conjurer Mage, Hand Mage, or Giant Mage) is a Mage deck type with a heavy focus on minions. Its prime gimmick uses Conjurer's Calling to create a large board. It's best used on a Mountain Giant to fill their board with more Mountain Giants or Grave Horror, the only 12-cost minions in Standard. The deck uses early card draw and Discover effects to maximize their hand size early, namely Book of Specters. Incidentally, their large hand size synergizes with other hand-related effects like Twilight Drake and Astromancer. In all variations, Khadgar is powerful card in these decks, creating huge board swings in combination of these cards. Even without an early Mountain Giant, Khadgar remains a valuable card for empowering other late-game powerhouses like Power of Creation and Jan'alai, the Dragonhawk.
