With all the hunter/melee teams, are any mage comps still viable?

Shadow Priest / Mage / Rdruid Still work?

How about Warlock / Mage / Rdruid?

I can't decide what to level after my DK, and it's a toss up between warlock (I only like the afflic playstyle) and mage.

Shadow priest Mage RDruid still works well. Your mage just has to be really good if you want to be competitive with it. I guess you can say the same for any mage comp though, regarding the mage having to be good.

Mage Lock Druid can be.. Okay.. But it has a lot more trouble against hunter cleave teams like jungle, etc, then god comp does. (even with gate), the teams that just train the lock all day. Thats why it isn't so popular anymore.

Best mage comps right now are Mage Spriest Druid, and Mage Ele Healer (Druid or Priest works).

Mage works - but its not fun to play a mage.

Here is why:
You can't play offensive - if you do, a trap will land on your healer and you lose.

A mage does work with a elemental but an elemental works better with a afflic lock and a SP. So he must be stupid to play with a mage or lacking of people on the realm.

This is what mages are like:
Make 0 mistakes and you win the game (every rating)
Make 1 mistake and you lose the game (every rating).

Compare those mistakes with hunter/disx/x comsp - they are still fine.

I like the idea of afflic lock - but they just have way too many fkin binds man. It shouldn't be so tedious to play a damn afflic lock.

I dunno...

Feels bad man

This is real right here.  Everyone is all up in arms about melee and has somehow ignored that godcomp is still pretty badass too.  So if you enjoy playing mage, you have an annoyingly good comp to play if you can find a decent spriest/rdruid to play with.

MLD isn't a really great comp at all. Shattreeplay (since Godcomp surely does not match as name anymore) is still quite good but it takes a lot of coordination to live through hunter teams, they can blow up anyone.

Shatterplay (mage/sp/rshaman) is still great and r1 viable setup.

Definitely shits on hunters.

Only thing we lose to is FPS.  Anyone have tips for shattreeplay vs FPS? I'm convinced the sham should be an easy kill, but it's so freakin hard to set it up.

That's why it's called God Comp, after all.
Bye again! This game isn't fun when you don't know anyone else that still plays.

Is anyone else worried that once hunters get toned down, spell cleaves are just going to shit on everything again?
