Strategy[]

When its Battlecry condition is not met, Cryomancer's 5/5 stats are adequate, though not ideal, for its Mana cost. To guarantee optimal value for this card, however, you will need to Freeze an enemy when playing this, which means that this card works best in a deck with many Freeze effects. Most of these cards are spells, such as Frostbolt, though certain minions such as Water Elemental can work as well. In scenarios where your opponent has an empty board, it may be worth considering targeting your opponent's face with a low-value Freeze, such as Glacial Shard, in order to activate Cryomancer's Battlecry.

When using a Freeze effect that deals damage, an enemy target needs to stay alive in order to activate Cryomancer. For example, suppose you have a Frostbolt and a Cryomancer, with 9 mana, against a 5/4 enemy minion. The best order of play would be to Frostbolt the minion, then play Cryomancer, and then finish off the enemy minion with Fireblast. Any other order of play would not leave a Frozen enemy on the board when Cryomancer is played.

Most constructed mage decks, even those with many Freeze effects such as Freeze Mage, have a spell-based win condition. In these decks, even a 5 mana 7/7 provides little value. Therefore, Cryomancer excels mostly in Arena, where she can provide a significant amount of tempo in a deck with enough Freeze synergy.
