Human Bloodmage Fast Expansion Build Order

Bloodmage is an unusual first choice as a Hero but has its advantages. 

This build is excellent against Orcs, especially when they go Blademaster.  Take Banish and Siphon on the Bloodmage.   Likewise, it works well against any Hero with Intellect as their primary stat. 

Alternatively, Flamestrike is excellent against any opponent with weak units like Night Elves and Human (especially if they go Archmage)

This is a very challenging build to play, but very enjoyable if you get the hang of it.
