Update 4/29: List works well at the moment. Midrange Sorcerer has the ability to crush the meta. End of month climbing with this deck from #150 to top 50 went 21-4 (84% win rate).

Who doesn't want to play those shiny tri-color decks post expansion? This is a deck with salt because I built this to punish all those greedy house decks that made proper control unplayable. Went 25-5 (83% win rate) in Rumble for 3 runs and sitting at top 5 on the leaderboard probably because no one has finished 3 runs yet. The lost games were due to bad draws or not having ring in aggro matchup.


Prominent Cards:

Corrupted Shade: It is the Sower of Revenge for Mid Sorcerer. The most tricky and annoying card in this list for your opponent to deal with. Most of the times your opponent can at best break the ward and pray that you don't have an answer to keep it alive, which you always do.

Sixth House Amulet: Battlemage has Battlemace and Assassin has Ritual. This this the Sorcerer equivalent that I long waited. Perfect synergy with Corrupted Shade and can be used with other creatures starting from Young Mammoth. It's only 1 cost which means it's such a low investment for a huge tempo. Just perfect.

Shadowfen Priest: Keeps Corrupted Shade alive if you can't ward it in time. Turn 4 Shade wasting your opponents resources into Turn 5 Priest is the ideal curve you want to see.

Indomitable Ordinator: At worst it's a 5/5 guard for 5 that protects your Corrupted Shade or protects you against other mid/aggro decks. At best it's a 5/5 Nahagliiv. It's particularly strong against yellow control and can make the trading game really awkward for your opponent.

Almalexia: Took out 1 copy of Bone Daddy since I find the meta have grown used to dealing with it efficiently, but feel free to sub in the 3rd Bone Daddy. Usually you want to drop her when there's an exalted Ordinator in play, which makes the Ordinator basically invincible. And trust me the chance of you triggering the combo is just the same as the chance of drawing her. And yes, you can always play her on turn 10 as a huge bomb, especially efficient against lethal archer.

This is the list in action. Despite of my opponent pulling off a strong tempo play to contest the field lane (Nix-Ox into Pathmage pulling 0-cost Schemer), dropping Almalexia enabled us to kill the Nix-Ox for free, eat the Pathmage alive, and leave the Schemer helpless and useless for the rest of the game.

I'll update it when the meta switches back to normal. And feel free to make suggestions. I might find space for Magister if the meta becomes aggressive. For now this works since the meta is a little too greedy for my taste.

This deck brought me to my first time Legend :) Been using it at rank 1-2 with an 11-3 record.

I played sorcerers in the past but this... this is so well rounded, seems to have all the answers at the right time. Pushing early damage or trading for value with surprise wards, this deck can do either very effectively. Even managed to trigger the Almalexia - Ordinator combo a few times for a grand victory (lost Almalexia many more times to the ever present deathpriest though but that's alright, she's just the icing in this deck). As someone else suggested, her disciple is totally worth the inclusion.

Thanks for the list, it was lots of fun playing with it!

Congratulations! I'm really happy to hear your story. Will for sure try Almalexia's Disciple sometime.

Thoughts on adding a 1-2 of Tel Vos Magister? It can straight up win games against aggro decks or race situations. I currently have almost the same deck without Nahagliiv and just 1 copy of Tel Vos.

I've thought of it and mentioned it in the writeup. And in theory it will help a lot against other midrange decks. My concern is that it does very little things against token based aggro, like the prevalent hlaalu at the moment. But yes it is very playable in this deck.
