The Shattered Sun Cleric is only a 3/2, not a 3/3 monster anymore.

Thank you. Should be fixed now.

Just got to Rank 20 easily by using that deck! I just lost once, but that was due to me playing bad. Thanks for the deck, I'll now set out and get the crafting for the Low Budget deck started. (:

This deck was awful. Just went 1-12 with it. It has no early game what soever and cannot compete with any type of damage dealing. It is only effective if you can get extremely lucky with your cards and the other person has no anti minion. Honestly terrible.

I'm just not sure how you can say that this deck has no early game. 18 out of its 30 cards cost 3 or less mana (and among those, only a few could even be argued to be situational cards).

 

If you went 1-12 with this deck, I can only see two possible scenarios:

 

1) You faced predominantly opponents with very strong decks (with many rare, epic, and possibly even legendary cards). If this is the case, there's really not much you can do. Remember that this is a Basic-only deck, and it does in no way propose to be a rival to decks with access to non-Basic cards.

 

2) You played the deck sub-optimally. This is very often the case, and the cause for a lot of "bad deck" complaints. If you could be a bit more specific, or ideally if you could provide some video footage of a few of your games, I'm sure I could be more helpful.

 

Best regards.

I disenchanted a bunch of epics and my only legendary to build this deck. 

 

Please dont make the same mistake I did. Very luck based deck that will get trumped by 9/10 rush decks. Only case it works is if your opponent fails to counter.

 

 

Very very bad.. thanks for wasting my 600 dust ...

You... disenchanted cards to craft a... basic deck? I don't understand how that's possible. This deck costs 0 (zero) Arcane Dust to craft. Every player who has a level 10 Priest has this deck.

Hi Vlad, ok, so I am going to try this game out.  I am trying to find the deck info, heck any info, but I am not having any luck.  sad.png  I am probably not looking in the correct place.  Please point me in the right direction.  Thanks.

I'm not exactly sure what you are having difficulty with, but I'll try to help you out.

 

First, get the Battle.net launcher thingy (from your battle.net account), which allows you to launch and play Hearthstone.

 

Then, once in-game, follow the tutorial (it's strictly linear so you can't go wrong) until you're done with it. This will have unlocked you the Mage class, and all the Neutral Basic cards in the game.

 

Then, go to "My Collection" and create a new deck for the Mage class. In that deck, include all the cards you have from this deck (replace the ones you are missing with cards such as Senjin Shieldmasta and War Golem). Using this new Mage deck, play against the AI ("Practice") and defeat other classes in order to unlock them too.

 

From then on, it should be fairly obvious how to continue. Use the "My Collection" menu to create and edit decks.

 

If you have any difficulties, don't hesitate to ask.

I think you might have a troll problem...i was also dumbfounded by that poster who supposedly disenchanted cards to build the basic deck that requires 0 dust to create....very suspect. Perhaps he's from a rival website?

Very cool Deck! 

started with it from rank 25 and went easily to rank 10. With only 3 minor changes (no legendary). For starters one of the best decks that you can have!

Thanks a lot

hey all,

 

I first tried this deck a few weeks ago (europe) and found some things lacking, so I changed some (with non-basic cards) and started winning. So far no problem.

Then today trying my improved deck and I lost bigtime! So, I went back to the basic and, voila, apart form extreme adversaries (excelent decks) I fared very well. Mind you, only the basics you guys show here!

Just goes to show that the meta game has some influence on what is a good deck!

 

Good job. The deck is balanced en works very well, dispite changes in the metagame.

Just wondering on what changes would be most optimal when switching in expert cards. I got these expert cards that could be used:

 

Faceless, Knife Juggler, Acolyte, Harvest Golem, Azure Drake x2, Temple Enforcer, Inner Fire, Sunfury Protector x2, Silver Hand Knight and Argent Commander.

 

Already made this switch:

 

Ogre-> Temple Enforcer

 

So all in all, wondering what the better switches would be with my cards.

This is a really fantastic deck, and the first one I'd point any new player to who just finished the tutorials and is looking for the first class to play after Mage.  It's also a good skeleton that's easily tweakable (i.e. Croc -> Sunfury Protector) once the good cards start rolling in.

 

Thanks.

Deck is great but I made a few tweeks. Drooped boulder fist for a storm wind and org magi. Tossed out a few draw cards for +1 spell cards. Its a game changer when holy Nova hits for 3 instead of 2

So after my tweeks I'm running into problems. What can I drop for spell power cards. I think that the #1 spell power cards are more vital then the draw cards. We have the cleric for draw cards during healing. Overall I'm face rolling damn near everyone. Why are priests ranked so low?!!! P.s bump

You can easily take out 1 Mindcontrol and 2 Novice Engineer, however Spellpower in Priests is generally weak - it effects only Holy Smite and Holy Nova. These cards may seem decent with Spellpower, however the minions that provide it will be inferior to your opponent's, which will cause you new problems.

Priests in are played in ranked, however compared to some other classes, Priest indeed appears weak sometimes.

A very nice deck, I made some changes due to I have some other cards which I prefer.

 

I took out:

Holy Smite * 2

Novice Engineer * 2

Gurubashi Berserker * 2

Ogre * 2

 

Place in:

Inner Fire * 1

DS * 1

Acolyte of Pain * 2

Injured Blademaster * 1

Lightspawn * 1

Azure Drake * 1

Cairne Bloodhoof * 1

 

I personally prefer acolyte of pain instead of nov eng, this is due to I try to gain early draw power/control power. DS+inner fire works great to buff my mob when I need finisher.

I try to enhance my draw power, both northshire/aop can be play with 3mana in early of game(Usually I can have very good drawing power unless I really have 0 Powerword/AoP/Northshire for 5rounds), I will try to control with spell and low cost mob, MC comes in for late control/finish, DS+IF for finisher.

 

Any suggestion from Mod to further enhance my deck?

I saw someone refer to a budget priest deck - I can create the free deck, but now that I have some more cards, and dust - I'd be curious as to that budget or even a ladder deck. 

 

Is there a central listing of all basic, budget, and ladder decks?  I got here via an article that cited this deck and provided a link to the free deck (eurogamer.net) -- I'd appreciate a more general reference, if there is one?

 

Thank you! smile.png

      So the latest expansion, Mean Streets of Gadgetzan, has been out for more than a month now, and I was curious what everyone´s opinion on it was. Personally, I love the set. It adds more synergy with types of cards that weren´t as popular beforehand. For example, sets like secret mage, demon warlock, taunt warrior, and beast druid/hunter, have all gotten big buffs and can be viable in the meta. I got rank 13 with secret mage and taunt warrior alone, and hope to get to legend with them. What about you?

      The live Q&A with the two well-known Hearthstone devs took place yesterday and we've made a recap of the most interesting points.
      First of all, if you want to watch the whole thing, the VOD can be found here (it starts at 14:10). If you prefer a shorter version, Redditor EpicMelon has made a 10-min video of everything important said. Ultimately, if you don't feel like watching videos, we've made a summary of anything worth noting from yesterday's Q&A.
      Ben started talking about the new player experience, a topic he has discussed again this week. He repeated that most new players start off by playing versus A.I., some go to Casual and a minority goes to Ranked. The team has made it so that in Casual new players are exclusively matched against other new players and their MMR is kept to a 50% winrate.
      One of the currently most discussed hot topics in the Hearthstone community is the Ranked ladder. The team is satisfied with how clear the current system is in how it works. However, they do realise that its grindiness and the monthly reset can be a disadvantage and feel repetitive. To counter that, they are looking into short-term increasing the amount of bonus stars players can gain. This will hopefully increase the number of players in medium and higher ranks and move veterans away from Rank 20. However, they don't want everyone to be a Legend player either, since this would devalue the ranking. New breakpoints are also an idea the Hearthstone team is considering. As far as winstreaks stopping at Rank 5 are concerned, the idea behind this is that they wanted players to get to Legend "legit"; this could change as well, though.
      Moving to the topic of Arena, Dean announced that they are thinking of moving it to Standard format. Moreover, they want to try decreasing the amount of commons you get, as well as the amount of neutral Classic and Basic cards (especially minions). Some of these changes for Arena are already ready to be added to the game they are just waiting for the right time to patch them in. In early February, top 100 rankings for Arena will be published - just like the Ranked season ones. These rankings will be calculated based on highest average wins per run basis with a minimum requirement of 30 runs.
      The guys had a few things to say about the current meta, too. Pirate Warrior represented 30% of the meta game near the launch of Mean Streets of Gadgetzan, while there were also a lot of Pirate Shamans and Rogues. Thankfully, these numbers have dropped as other decks (like Jade Druid and Reno decks) started surfacing. Pirate decks are slightly more popular than Team 5 would like and decks with the pirate package feel same-y. If this persists, they might take a look at Pirates. Hunters and Paladins are having a hard time at the moment because they can't keep up with the aggro pirate decks. Overall, the internal meta report shows a stability in the meta: there is only a 3% difference between the winrates of the top deck and the 11th best deck.
      Lastly, there was mention of the Wild format. Ben admitted that they could do some things better for Wild. For example, it's possible that Blizzard will encourage more Wild tournaments in the future. The upcoming rotation will be interesting since Wild will have more card sets than Standard. Wild is far from dead: it's just half as popular as Standard, although Ben hasn't looked in the numbers recently. Earlier in the stream, Ben also said that the team is considering two options to keep Standard fresh: either nerfing cards or just move them to Wild.
      Lastly, Ben and Dean talked about various other small topics like the possibility of reprinting cards (no actual answer given), more Hunter and Paladin talk, wording inconsistencies and rewriting old cards, how a healthy meta is defined and Team 5 itself.
