Midrange deck playing around Exalt creatures, tempo cards like Mace of Encumbrance, Icewing Dragon, and Tel Vos Magister, Voice of Balance with Corsair Ship, and finally Haafingar Marauder.

Depending on your draw the deck can play very quickly or it could be forced to play somewhat defensively. Voice of Balance can be prepared by turn 4 with Ring or turn 5 without in a perfect draw (turn 1/2 Firebolt/Ice Spike respectively, turn 3/4 Corsair Ship, turn 4/5 Voice of Balance) for a 4 cost 8-8. If you must play something and are sitting on him it doesn't hurt to play him without setup on curve, especially if you have a turn 5 play in hand (Ayrenn, Haafingar Marauder, or Stronghold Eradicator).

The deck really gets going by turns 5 and 6. If you're fighting a faster deck the previously mentioned tempo cards along with Cunning Ally (who has a high chance of generating a Firebolt in this deck) should keep you in the fight until the 5-6 drops can build a winning attack.

Bringer of Nightmares is great for a multitude of reasons. In particular he can turn a useless body like Temple Conjurer, Wardcrafter, or any card badly weakened after trading into the enemy into something useful, he can remove a guard preventing lethal, or he can try his luck at finding some random game winning card to swing an otherwise hopeless game in your favour.

For a 50 card deck this is a little expensive, sorry. If you're missing some cards I can try to offer some substitutions, but each card in this deck does do something fairly unique.

Voice of Balance is a fairly unconventional card, so I can't really recommend crafting it, but there's no card that does anything similar. If you lack Voice of Balance Corsair Ship is not worth playing, requiring two substitutions. I guess you could swap them out for Piercing Twilight, Mystic Dragon, Royal Sage, and/or Hive Defender.

Dawnbreaker admittedly is definitely not essential, replace it with either a third Firebolt or one the previously mentioned 4-drops.

I think Stronghold Eradicator is worth crafting and running in any midrange deck, but if you don't or can't I would replace missing copies with Phalanx Exemplar.

Tel Vos Magister is definitely worth crafting, a staple in both midrange and some control Intelligence decks. If that isn't possible, I would recommend replacing it with one of the previously mentioned Intelligence 4-drops to maintain the Cunning Ally trigger frequency.

Bringer of Nightmares cannot be replaced, but I also can't recommend crafting it since it has only niche usage. There's no playable non-legendary Intelligence 7 drop either. If you have copies of Mighty Conjuration you could swap those in for missing copies of Bringer, but some scenarios in which Bringer would have found victory will now be losing as result. At least Lava Atronach can protect you from aggression and the following turn run over guards if those are the problems.

Daggerfall Mage and Enamor's Keeper are both wonderful, but are not essential. If you're missing both I would replace them with Clockwork City Pilgrim and High Rock Summoner, favouring the former if you're only missing one.

There's not really an excuse for missing Ayrenn. Any Intelligence 5 drop I would suggest replacing her with is an epic, so you may as well just rethink your life and craft her.

I cannot possibly recommend replacements for Haafingar Marauder; his effect is too pivotal and unique. Even top-decked after your momentum has been completely broken he can turn a random sticking Wardcrafter into a potential threat if she can break a rune, for example. I think he's playable in any Willpower midrange deck, so just craft him.

Everything else is rare or common and thus shouldn't be an issue. Let me know if my substitution options don't work for you due to your collection.
