Pyroblasting faces feels good, even though it is somewhat cheap.Also, anyone who might spend some time watching popular videos might have seen the horrific Frostbolt plus 4 Ice Lance Arena combo. I think that's more painful to bear than a Pyroblast to the face.

I think that's more painful to bear than a Pyroblast to the face.I don't know, from my experience a balanced, minion based deck is working better for me. Like 1 Frostbolt, 1 Fireball, 1 Poly, 1 Flamestrike is all I need. But then again, you have to pick from weaker minions and mage spells? Woohoo, spells any day (aside of Ice Barrier/Block).Also, I have no idea why people, including arena experts such as Trump keep saying CoC is trash. That card single-handedly wins games. Seriously, it is 4 mana Blizzard, nothing else. I cannot even tell how many times this card wins arena games (way more than flamestrike, because people always play around it).And another HUGE thing about mage is Venture Co. It is one of the most popular arena cards, everyone plays it. And you just freeze it with Nova/Bolt/CoC/Blizz/Lance. And both their hand AND their board are suddenly knee-deep in s**t.
Mages make up 20% of the class picked in Arena, but in reality you'll face them on average a lot more than 20% of the time, especially if you start winning games. The fact is, mages also have more "staying power", meaning a mage deck if built correctly with some luck are likely to go 7 wins or above, therefore facing on average a bigger number of opponents than the rest of the classes. I like to play Rogue in Arena (if Mage is not available), and noticed that usually if I win 3 or 4 games I start facing mages a lot more often than the rest of the classes.
This is a valid point. I spoke about this on the show but I have lately noticed a trend of getting to 8-10 wins without any losses, then facing 3 insane Mage decks in a row and losing all 3. These are the Mages that got the good drafts and they tend to bunch up at the high win totals.However, 20% is the actual number as the majority of people don't win a lot of games and get to this point.
Where is the next Angry Chicken episode? :/
I don't see it on hearthhead but you can find it on amove.tv http://amove.tv/news/2014/6/17/hack-the-dream
I honestly have more problems with rogues in arena than mages. I once beat a mage who had four flamestrikes and it felt wonderful. He was spamming me with threats so it was one of my most exciting wins in Hearthstone. After you win a few games, it is true though that you will see mostly mages, followed by rogues and shamans.
