I made a deck!  I like it so far: http://www.hearthpwn.com/decks/787797-open-sesame-sorcerers-apprentice-molten-reflection

What I like about this style of Mage is that I have the cards to build it (hehe). It is a pretty slow deck though, so I wonder if you can fit a Doomsayer in there. Are you sure you need Firelands Portal instead of, say, another Blizzard or Doomsayer?

If you get the full 2x Sorceror's Apprentice 2x Molten Reflection for 7 Mana, you can play a Cabalist's Tome hoping for some cheap spells to play in order to achieve the quest and still have some Mana to spare for the Waygate itself.

Edit: Oh yes, and I think the Coin counts as a spell outside your original deck for the sake of the Mage Quest. That seems so wrong.

Yes, the Coin counts!  And maybe I should drop the Firelands Portal.  I've also been considering dropping the Loot Hoarder for Bloodmage Thalnos.

I swapped in a Doomsayer and a Thalnos: http://www.hearthpwn.com/decks/787797-open-sesame-sa-mr-quest-mage

Still going strong!

For my part, I've been trying out Quest Murloc Shaman. My brief experience playing Aggro Shaman suggests that Jade Claws/Lightning plus Flametongue Totem is a nice combination. Here is more or less qhat I've been playing.

Murloc Tidecaller
Unite the Murlocs
Bluegill Warrior x 2
Flametongue Totem x 2
Jade Claws x 2
Maelstrom Portal x 2
Murloc Tidehunter x 2
Primalfin Totem x 2
Rockpool Hunter x 2
Coldlight Seer x 2
Hex x 2
Hot Spring Guardian x 2
Murloc Warleader x 2
Primalfin Lookout
Call in the Finishers x 2
Gentle Megasaur
Jade Lightning x 2

I am not sold on 2x Hot Spring Guardians just yet, but I haven't been seeing too many Pirate Warriors just yet.

Megafin is crazy when it goes off. There are enough different Murlocs that you can't just expect to go "herp derp Warleader + Bluegill" everytime, but getting some utility Murlocs like the six mana AoE one (Corrupted Seer) and the new Hydrologist can give a surprising amount of sustain. Also, Rockpool Hunter letting you choose which Murloc to buff is all kinds of awesome.

I also gave Quest Hunter a shot. The disadvantage of having to play the quest turn one is large enough that I think any Quest Hunter is better off going for broke and stuffing the deck with tons of one drops as well as Tracking to hastily complete the quest. The Reward is mighty strong I'd say. I did make room for some utility cards like Cult Master, Knife Juggler, and Tundra Rhino. The five-mana draw two 1-drops (Tol'vir Warden) is naturally a two-of even in this case.

Quest Rogue seems like it's going to be on of the main decks to beat. It tends to complete the Quest with scary efficiency and enough cards to spare to make use of the reward. I did beat a Quest Rogue that got off the quest by summoning my own Megafin, but it looked like I was at the mercy of my Megafin draws.

Somehow my rank 1 winrate is insane. I just got to legend the third time, and I don't think I've ever gone to rank 1 without hitting legedn after.
This is the second time I went through rank 1 without a single loss, and also the second time the last game was a total blowout where my opponent was basically dead on turn 4.

Hooray for Elemental Shaman!  Fuck you, Pirate Warrior!

The best was when a (turn 3, I think) opponent's Dirty Rat dropped my Al'Akir, and they immediately conceded. :)

So, if you type "missing" in the collection manager, it filters out all cards you have at least two copies of, leaving only cards that you don't have two copies of. I tried this and noticed I'm mostly missing epics and legendaries with the odd missing rare, and that is including the most recent expansion. Kinda makes me feel like not buying any more packs and to just play Arena. Oddly enough, it seems I have no copies of the Druid card "Bite" from the Classic Set. Maybe I should craft Edwin Vancleef one of these days.

I reached Rank 5 this season with Midrange Hunter, and got an excuse to play The Black Knight that I recently opened thanks to Taunt Warrior. The last win I needed to get to Rank 5 was against another Rank 5 player messing around with C'thun Rogue, presumably thanks to the safety net of the Rank 5 floor. I give my thanks to that player.

Now I feel free to mess around with Elemental decks and other wonky stuff.

Nice Tip!

I have several cards where I have one regular copy one gold copy. At some point I may have acquired another regular copy and would like to DE the golden copy. Any hacks for finding these pairs?

I am officially 12 cards away from having one of all the classic set, 9 of which are Legendary and 3 are Epics.

"extra" shows cards you have excess copies of when combining gold and normal.

I tried "old" and well, it gets a lot of cards but since I had reset all the new I'm not sure exactly what the results are. I mean Goldshire footman, kobold geomancer were on the first page but so was Beckoner of Evil.

Typing "old" in the filter seems to show me everthing from Classic and Whispers of the Old Gods, plus cards with "old" in their card text. This includes cards like Netherspite Historian, Drakonid Operative, and Elder Longneck, whose card text refers to cards you are "holding".

Maybe there's a way to be more specific about whether you're referring to names, card text, or tribes.

Yesterday I opened Swamp King Dred. Okay, that was cool.

but today, I got Malygos from my Brawl pack. So much potential opens up with Malygos. Hearthstone has been generous to me lately.

In wild, perhaps, where Emperor Thaurissan still exists. :(

Aren't Tavern Brawls usually wild (the ones where you build your own deck)?

Often they are, yes. I remember using Poison Seeds to great effect in the Christmas Brawl. Also the everything-is-a-shredder Brawl was Wild.
