Dragon Priest (No Dragonfire) Gadgetzan Standard

I have been playing Reno Dragon Priest a lot this expansion and performed very bad with it...sadly. This deck however performs a lot better, I added Kazakus (Edit: that was stupid...no duplicates...meh...removed Kazakus and added Drakonid Crusher for now, may trade for another Book Wyrm or Dirty Rat if it doesn't work out), Sylvanas and Ragnaros and dropped 1 copy of Wyrmrest Agent, Twilight Guardian and Kabal Talonpriest for them (because I only have 1 copy of those for now). Works rather well so far...but still rather low ranked. Will give more feedback after more plays.

That's quite anti-control, rather than the common anti-aggro tech. How does the deck fare against pirate warriors?

Well, I wish I could give you an answer, but I haven't met any pirates today. For some reason today was mostly priests and everything else BUT pirates. So far my winrate is 100%, but I assume this will not hold forever. xD

Played 7 games with this and am Rank 13 currently. That is not great at all, but I only play so and so often and had a winrate of only 52% in 21 matches with Reno Dragon Priest (for which I spent all my dust... -.- ).

This list has no way of dealing with Sylvanas or Aya or White eyes..  Either entomb or Songstealer is needed .. I play the same deck except I don't run potions and use 2 holy novas ... board is very important for dragon priests ..

Any possible cards to sub for those without the adventures?

Not really. The whole deck relies on BrM and Karazhan cards, and without them, the deck will not stand a chance against any of the currently popular decks.

Yet another suicide dragon deck. Dragon priest is way too weak, simple as that.

That's a very bold statement and you have provided us with nothing to back your opinion. I, on the other, hereby give you a proof that dragon priest is actually a good deck - check this spreadsheet and notice that Dragon Priest is in the top 5 decks in winrate.

Hi i really like your build i got ysera added . But i need an upgrade somehow. The problem i encountered is against mage . Always going on a late game against them and they always get control of my legendary and finish me . Any idea how i could counter that or maybe win before entering a late game . For now i am thinking of sylvana please let me know .

Current dragon priest is faster than previous dragon priests and is played like a faster midrange than slower midrange or control. This means that Ysera is too slow as you want to use faster cards and finish your opponent quite quickly. This means you should not try to get into the late-game, not even against mages. Which card did you swap out for Ysera?

To deal with mage, board control early on, and try to heal as often as possible.

When you talk about always controlling your legendary to finish you are you referring to the mc tech? If so, avoid playing more than 3 minions. If you are talking about enemy sylv, try to make sure the opponent get less value from their own sylv.

When the game reaches late stage, you can always try the brann+netherspire historian or the brann + drakonoid op combo to get enough plays late game or try to steal an ice block to prevent a potential otk
