Day Nine's Delay Mage Deck in Action

  (Edited: )

I'm new to Hearthstone and card games in general. I am a long time fan of Day9's Starcraft videos even though I don't play Starcract 2. I got into the BETA two days ago. I was using cheap beat down decks that always fizzled our around turn 8 or 9. After watching the second Day9 Daily show about Hearthstone I wanted to play that deck. I was recording myself to learn how to play Hearthstone better and was blessed with my first game being so exciting I'm now hooked. Thanks Day9!

Tell me what you think about the fight. Day Nine explain why he was picking his cards, and I ended up using them for their exact purpose. I don't know much about the game like what crazy card counters and their mana costs that can do combos. I only know simple common deck ideas like beat downs and what not.
