Yesterday I reached legend with a homebrew, Dragon Even Mage. Dropping a quick guide here for anybody who has the cards and wants to try something a little different (no stats because mobile). Even Mage is definitely viable right now, though likely not as strong as the other popular Mage decks. The playstyle is very distinct though, with practically no spells.
This version differs from other Even Mage lists with Hemet (destroy all 2-mana cards in your deck) and the dragon package. If nothing else, I think the takeaway is that Hemet is very good in Even Mage – there are a lot of 2 mana cards that are necessary in the early game and dead in the late game. Dropping Hemet puts your opponent on a timer and pits their midgame against your lategame. The dragon package is solid, like physically solid, a wall of really thicc taunts between aggro decks and your face. Past that, it's all about discounting Coldarra, which is meh at 6 mana (where you're mostly praying for it to survive to next turn), but bananas at 4 or less.

Mulligan: Wildfire of course, Starscryer, Spirit of the Dragonhawk, Ice Walker, Reckless Apprentice, Frizz Kindleroost, Varden Dawngrasp, maybe Garrison Commander.
Card choices: The two biggest issues are card draw and the Mage matchup, so it might make sense to tune the deck in that direction. You could probably cut Fallen Hero, Manafeeder Panthara, and a Garrison Commander. You could put in Nerubian Unraveler, Cult Neophyte, Far Watch Post, or Loot Hoarder.
I don't like Book of Specters. Wildfire is the most important card in the deck (such that you don't want to Hemet until you get both usually). Book can discard Wildfire and dilutes Starcryer. Kodorider could be good, but I haven't really tried it. Honestly, you could probably cut Mordresh, but sometimes the burst is good.
Matchups: APM and Flamewaker Mage are the hardest matchups, this is a board-centric deck and they just don't care about the board. Aggro Paladin is tough just because Posts really slow you down and Oh My Yogg! can wreck your Wildfires. Otherwise it's pretty good against anything that relies on board tempo, you can reliably toss out a wave of Hero Powers and build your board at the same. It's also good against control decks because by midgame you can put lots of pressure on the board and also deal lots of damage from hand, so it's very hard to play around.
That's about it. Last month I made legend with wild evolve shaman, and it's probably still good given were in a Watch Post meta. Good luck out there.
