The addition of the Potion of Illusion mage card will potentially lead to the return of the Exodia Mage with the Infinite Fireball Combo (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lgHyoPhCUSA).
- Quest (Sidequests) + Licensed Adventurer (x2) = Coin (x2)
- Antonidas + Coin + Potion of Illusion = Antonidas (1 mana)
- Antonidas (1 mana) + Sorcerer’s Apprentice (2 mana) (x2) + Potion of Illusion (2 mana) + Porcerer’s Apprentice (1 mana) (x2) = 9 mana and Fireball (0 mana) combo
Even the possibility of this combo is a problem, because it is impossible to defend against it at all for slow control and maybe midrange decks.
Boompistol Bully (Neutral) and Glide (DH) or maybe some other existing technical cards just slow down the combo and does not destroy it.
Increase of the mana cost (from 4 to 5) also does not help.
Without fixing this combo it will potentially destroy the control decks during next two expansions (may be even for two years). Probably we will have the agro (DH) meta again for a long period of time, because mage can sucessfully survive againt midrange and slow decks…
There is the first version of the deck, probably it is not optimal and should be improved…hearthstonetopdecks.com/decks/exodia-mage-scholomance-academy/
