Good Priest deck ideas/tips

6 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

So I want to pick up priest, but I have no clue which deck is somewhat good in the current meta.

I have seen C'thun priests doing good but I already play a C'thun warrior, so i'm not really liking the idea of playing a 2nd one. 

Control priest is kinda meh -.- imo. Anyone got some tips to create a good priest deck?

Priest naturally plays pretty slowly, so its going to lean toward midrange/control decks. I dont think ive seen any aggro or speed priest decks that worked well, but there's always the Divine Spirit / Inner Fire combo if you want to try it.

Dragon priest is pretty viable right now, I think theres a deck on here for it. 

Shadow priest is a combo that went out of favor for a while, but is coming back with the current meta. It uses combinations of Shadowform, Shadow Madness, Thoughtsteal, Cabal Shadow Priest, Mind Control and Entomb. Maybe Mind Control Tech too if it fits. The basic strategy is to steal your opponents minions and just wear them out. Fun to play if done right, but its definitely SLOW.  I found a lot of matches went to fatigue.

I agree with what Allegro said, and I am going to add 3 decks: midrange priest and OTK/Velen combo priest and N'zoth priest.

Midrange priest has more proactive plays than control, and focuses on seizing the board with a bit more minions and less spells. It has been considered to be better than Control priest for some time. Not sure about current situation though.

OTK/Velen priest focuses on using cheap heals combined with Auchenai, and damage spells, all combined with Velen, Malygos, or both. The deck isn't that good, but it can be used as a fun deck.

N'zoth priest focuses on more proactive plays, especially powerful deathrattle minions. You let them die, you use a lot of removal spells and you play N'zoth when the important deathrattle minions died, creating a win condition. 

As for the best deck in meta, I feel like N'zoth priest is the strongest priest deck for now.

c'thun priest and n'zoth are by far your best option in the current meta and cant add anything more to what postiiv2 has mentioned ..even if you have a c'thun warrior the priest counter part in my opinion is just as good so good luck and ofc you can read the guides posted in the priest section by sottle (really detailed  )  for more insight on the decks available here on icy-veins  and hopefully they will help you make the best choice

      ABOUT US
      We are a very social guild LFM for progression/semi-casual raiding and leveling. 
      When we say "semi-casual," we mean that we raid two days for three hours, can laugh about a wipe but are still serious about progression. We plan to do Normal raids (not for long) before going on to Heroic and Mythic.
      New players and all levels welcomed. We are VERY new player and new role friendly and have a few new players in the raid group already. We will work with you and get you trained up. So don't worry! 
      We do have some PvPers and an experienced RBG leader so PvP isn't out of the question.
      We're almost always on Discord and we joke around a lot. Some jokes aren't appropriate so keep that in mind. (Recommended 18+)
      Currently we are using the EPGP system ( The addon EPGP (DKP Reloaded), EPGP Lootmaster, DBM, and GTFO are required to be downloaded and kept up-to-date on raid nights.
      Fridays & Sundays 8pm - 11pm PST. (10pm - 1am Server Time.) NOTE: Flasks, foods, potions, and enchants will be provided for raiders on a first-come first-serve basis. People who contribute to the guild bank will also have preference. Guild repairs provided on raid nights. Trials will be provided with the aforementioned items if we can spare them after the main raiders. CURRENT PROGRESSION
      Emerald Nightmare, [7/7N] [3/7H] OTHER EVENTS
      Saturday is for Mythics/other events. Though we do stuff throughout the week. Most of us have work or school so it depends. We have an event coming up on 10/25 (Saturday) for the release of patch 7.1 Return to Karazhan! WHAT WE HAVE ROOM FOR**
      Shadow Priest Balance Druid Mage Elemental Shaman **In order of what we need the most!!

      Nothing To Lose is recruiting exceptional players for Mythic Emerald Nightmare and Legion progression.
      Raid times are 7-11pm Central Standard Time on Wednesday and Friday nights.

      We are mainly interested in Ranged DPS at the moment, however
      we are always willing to accept talented and experienced raiders.
      The following classes would be highly preferred:
      -Mage (Fire)
      -Priest (Shadow)
      -Druid (Balance)

      For Mythic content, we expect our raiders to be consistent both in their attendance and performance. We are a generally laid back and sarcastic crowd, but our 20 spots will be filled by those who:
      -Show up on time with full consumables
      -Know the ins and outs of their class
      -Know the boss mechanics 
      -Push their numbers to highest possible in their spec.

      <NTL> has been on Cho'Gall since the Burning Crusade, and we intend to be around through Legion and beyond. Join us for some !@#$-talking, meter-whoring, and good old-fashioned purps.

      The easiest way to apply is to contact myself (GM) directly via PM or in-game mail.
