Hearthstone Midrange Priest LoE

19 posts in this topic

So this deck just got me from rank 15 to rank 5. I would say this deck is really strong and not too hard. I would recommend for everyone.

I find it extremely depending on the starting hand and on luck (effect of Deathlord, mainly).

 

But sadly that is for most decks in Hearthstone.

Worst deck I've played. Can't get a win at 19. Extremely draw based. If you don't get death lord or chow just quit.

I mean, you're well above 60% to get one of those two cards in your opening hand if you're mulliganing for them. Obviously decks do better when you hit their early game cards.

After playing loads of matches with this deck:

 

- Very depending on starting hand.

- Even with a good starting hand, I get overwhelmed more often than I would like.

- It's kinda rock-paper-scissors. Against some classes it's an almost certain win, against other an almost certain defeat.

- Elise Starseeker looks useless to me. Usually you don't get your legendaries before the very last few turns, and even if you get it, often at the expense of being overwhelmed meanwhile.

Might be true, but I find that Death Lord has an extreme luckfactor. If your opponent manages to kill it right away (most classes can, if they have the right card) and some 7+ minion drops, it's an instant-loss usually.

Is there any replacement for deathlord in these kinds of decks?

 

An early taunt that actually has stats is nice, but its just been bait for hunters mark, power overwhelming etc and it always, always ends up bringing out a challenger/fordring/giant for the opponent

If the opponent is a hunter, he will rarely have a big minion to punish you for playing Deathlord. Same goes for zoo. Additionally, Deathlord is meant for taking the damage, such as from Power Overwhelming.

Challenger is actually something you might even want to take out, because you will "deny" the opponent a few draws and insane synergy. As for Tirion, your run double Entomb and one SW:D, which is enough to deal with Tirion. Same goes for giants. Also, Handlock is a rare sight, and I haven't seen one for the past two weeks.

If you face a high amount of control or slow midrange decks, then you can include a second Shredder and possibly even Dr. Balanced himself.

Yeah Deathlord is brutal sometimes, but it's a necessary evil, it's so powerful when it sticks that it wins you more games than it loses, I can understand the frustration with it sometimes, but you just have to believe me. It's universally agreed upon to be strong in Priest and the stats reflect it, it's a game winning card much more often than it is a losing one.

 

If you don't get the early Deathlord down, you need to try and be a bit more clever with it, hold onto it for a turn or two until the turn before you think you're going to Lightbomb for example, then the extra minion being pulled can work in your favour.

Had fun with this deck, makes a change from classic control priest, easier to play as well.

I have struggled against paladins but I don't have Harrison Jones so perhaps that's why. Great otherwise!

I need replacements for 1 cabal shadow priest, and 2 lightbomb, harrison jones, and justicar trueheart. Idk these cards are just irrelevant to me and like I rarely play priest so..

I've been playing this for a while, and while my winrate isn't the highest (That really is only having to do with my skills as a player) It's been so much FUN! I got my first golden monkey victory and when my hand and deck turned to legendary's, man. That was a great feeling.

I just swapped a museum curator for a crazed alchemist but i havent tried it yet. when those big health monsters attack your taunt monsters, use it with cabal shadow priest to steal them!

remarks?

It can be useful against taunt monster to get them out the way too + you end up having an extra taunt monster?

      We have a new Tavern Brawl this week! Its name is Spellbook Duel.
      For this Brawl, you choose your class and then you pick 10 different cards to fill your deck. Instead of drawing cards each turn, you Discover a copy of a card from your deck. If you use card drawing mechanics, like Arcane Intellect, you don't actually draw from your deck. You will, in fact, get a 1-mana spell called Peruse, which again allows you to Discover a copy of a card from your deck.
      Obviously, there are a lot of possible deck combinations you can use to tackle this new Tavern Brawl. The first things that pop into mind are anything that contains Reno Jackson and Kazakus, as well as Jade Druid to extend the possibility of getting these precious Jade Idols. Once again, Mage is the clear winner of this Brawl with cards like Sorcerer's Apprentice, Arcane Intellect and Flamewaker.
      Bear in mind that some cards are not recommended, since they remove cards from your Discover pool. Examples are Fel Reaver and Tracking. Moreover, cards that put another card directly into play, like Mysterious Challenger and Mad Scientist, will also make your Discover pool smaller. Lastly, according to a Reddit user, Renounce Darkness won't deduct 1 mana from the cards you discover throughout the game.
      There are already a lot of disgusting decks for Spellbook Duel out there. We are waiting for your suggestions and any other useful info in the comments!
