UPDATE 18/09 : This list is outdated. Check this one from my friends Thomas and Chapter : https://legends-decks.com/deck/1954/next-chapter-of-1-control-mage-guide

After talking with some friends of mine (ChapterHouse and Entaro_Thomas), we came up with this list, that I managed to pilot to Rank #1 Legend (as of 15/08/2016).

See also  Deck List

Couple of notable inclusions:

– Daggerfall Mage: playing those cards instead of the Telvanni Arcanists (2 mage and last spot goes to the 3rd Crushing Blow). Daggerfall will most of the time be a 2-for-1 in your advantage. The Tome of Alteration that you get is also better than the average random spell that you get from the Arcanist.

– Nahkriin, Dragon Priest: This card is bonkers. It allows you to play an Odahviing at most 3 turns earlier (if you still have a charge of elixir). The outcome of this play is rather insane: get board control on both lane, draw a card, destroy the opponent’s board. Also very good in combination with Mantikoras to make an insane tempo play on turn 10.

– Desperate Conjuring: Only playing as a 1-of because more would be pushing it (you need to have something relevant on board for the card to work). You can use it on a Mantikora or Nahkriin to get a second Odahviing or even the Iron Atronach. Note: You can Nahkriin + Desperate Conjuring on it to instantly get Odahviing or Iron Atronach.

You can watch the vod of me hitting Rank #1:
PS: I may sound super triggered, rude and salty, but this session (almost 7 hours, pushing for rank #1) was VERY exhausting, and I got some pretty shitty RNG all night long. I am usually very polite ! :)

I am streaming everyday, starting at 10pm EST, right here : https://www.twitch.tv/osblackfall

EDIT 19/08 : Switched the tigers for Fate Weavers, because the meta is filled with control now o/

EDIT 22/08 : Switched back to tigers, meta seems less controly for now !

EDIT 28/08 : Removed 1 tiger for Miraak. Every control deck is playing it now, so we need it in the mirror match up.

I have been trying to refine my control mage list for days, this looks great! Could Miraak be included instead of one Mantikora or is that too greedy?

You can do it, but I believe that Miraak is only good in the control mirror. This card is too slow (and doesn’t give you a guard like Mantikora) against every other deck.

The 1-of Desperate Conjuring was always ok for me. If I wanted a 3rd Daggerfall mage, I would remove the 3rd Crushing blow.

I’ll always run the 3 Mantikoras, this card is just bonkers in the late game, or even with Nahkriin. IMO, Divayth Fyr only seems to be a “win more and more” card. If you can safely play it on the board, you’ve already won the game.

Hey there fellow french/can
When you say you’re GD, just curious, would it be at Ubisoft Montreal by chance ?
Nice stream otherwise :)

Hey Blackfall, I love this deck! The tigers that you took out have saved me, even in control matchups because it is quite a big minion with guard, you really think the deck will still do well with 3 less guards but with a 3/3 draw a card instead? It just seems a bit underwhelming if it doesn’t come off of prophecy. Thanks.

If the meta is super control heavy, yeah, the weavers are better.

Removing tigers is a mistake imo.

As an expert on the control mage, what do you think about Auridon Paladin or Pillaging Tribune as an extra heal in the deck? Also, Cunning ally has only about 60% chance functioning in this deck and I have lost countless games because of it not triggering and that triggers me… What do you think about it and are there any replacements you would consider?

Paladin and Pillagine are way too slow in Control Mage. You usually want to play your cheap spells with a peddler, not with a paladin. Cunning ally is fine, but If I ever were to remove them, I’d probably switch them with Camlorn Sentinel.

Hi there, ty for the decklist. Just a quick question. Im missing the second “Dawn`s Wrath” and am currently using “Indorial Archmage” as a replacement. Is this fine or should i rather craft and use an “Immolating Blast”?
