I am just venting. You guys can talk trash to me. I win against them its a struggle, when I lose to them I feel robbed because I get Ice Block'd and get Combo'd. They're so unfun to face.

Although the statistics illustrate that Mage isn't a problematic class as far as win rates go, I'd agree that they're just not fun to play against.

It's extremely frustrating to spend the whole match playing around Counterspell or Ice Block only to discover that the Mage found one or two more from random effects.

It's also rather unsatisfying to have a long, drawn-out match against a Mage whose OTK deck is either going to draw what it needs or it's not, and all you can do in the meantime is wait while your board is constantly gimped. Very fun and interactive.

My mage deck doesn't run counterspell or combos and kills you with The Darkness. Is that acceptable to you guys?

Costs aside, I wonder if just turning Ice Block into a legendary would just fix everything.

I love playing a Death Mage at this point (Which will be a little less fun once N'zoth goes away, but..), but I'm not using Ice Block, and I'll be fine with it (hopefully) going away from Standard.

I sorely agree about how annoying IB can be, you could have 30 health and 6 minions on the board, and all it takes is quest and IB and it's impossible to beat it. So good riddance to that.

I never really had a problem with mages. They usually feel pretty straightforward to me. When I saw a secret, I could figure out it was Ice Block pretty quickly and it'd get popped before they could do anything.

Yeah, Priest is the tilt king imo. Closest rival might have been Druid back before Spreading Plague was nerfed. Maybe Paladin with Divine Favor, just seeing him draw 5 cards after a board clear into something like Call to Arm tilts me when I'm watching streams.

This so much. Although mage is still in my top 3. But in almost every expansion priest has always had some decks that make me want to jump out a window at times. Warlock would be second and Mage third I think.

I think this is the first time I've seen a topic about hating Mage. Hating Ice Block sure, but Mage itself? All things considered, it's probably one of the more balanced classes.

People would hate on mage all the time, especially when Freeze Mage was a thing. Anytime you can do massive amounts of burst, people will hate you.
