|Year of the Mammoth, and Kazakus at the beginning of the Year of the Raven, Reno Mage became a wild-exclusive archetype. For more information, see Game format.|
Reno Mage is a Mage deck type that utilizes Reno Jackson and Kazakus to outlast opponents. Reno Mage has access to a large variety of high-value cards, and thanks to the variety of cards at their disposal, they are able to tech to practically any matchup. While Mage lacks the power of Reno Warlock's Life Tap, their ability to pack a ton of value and removal into their deck makes them a strong class to carry the Reno package.
To help compensate for their lack of a natural draw engine, Reno Mage lists typically carry extra card draw and cycle, such as Bloodmage Thalnos or Arcane Intellect. The game plan is to survive until you eventually out-value your opponent.
Most modern Reno Mage lists carry N'Zoth, the Corruptor as their eventual win condition, as well as a package of strong Deathrattle minions such as Sludge Belcher, Piloted Shredder and Sylvanas Windrunner.

Optional cards[edit | edit source]
The following cards are commonly included to fill out the rest of the Reno Mage deck. Which of these cards are used depends on the particular variant of Reno Mage, as well as how much deck space the player is willing to invest in teching against aggro decks. For example, late game threats such as Dr. Boom may be replaced with cards that provide an early game board presence such as Mistress of Mixtures if the player is concerned about aggressive decks like Pirate Warrior.
