Then use something else :)

These cards aren't carved in stone. These are suggestions for you.

Seeing as I have all the requisite cards except Cairne, but happened to draw a certain legendary today: how well would a Nat Pagle substitute?

I'd rather not suggest it. Cairne is a very strong board control card, while Nat is a card draw card in early game. For that, you already have Northshire clerics, PW: Shield, Thought Steal, and you also have Shadow Goodness to gain even more advantage.

 

I'd rather suggest going for a Boulderfist Ogre or Chillwind Yeti. (Ogre is harder hitting, costs as much mana as Cairne, but vulnerable to SW: Death, Druid Mark f the Wild, big game hunter combo etc, while yeti with 4 attacks is just like a single cairne, costs less mana, but you may have a gap in your mana loop at 6)

this deck is horrible, went from level 10 to 14 with no wins. vs early aggro it requires combos, in mid game there are not enough creatures on the board to do anything, and if you manage to get to late game it is generally lopsided, i finally had a win vs another priest...

At around 10 you should already play multiple decks and you should always make adjustments to them based on the meta game. Priest can generally be really powerful and as you mentioned "combo requirement" will often be the only way to destroy most aggressive decks as a Priest.

You could potentially include in 2x Silence, 2x Ancient Watcher and 2x Smite to be more competitive against aggressive decks.

I don't really understand how to play this deck. Would it be possible to elaborate on the matter? Thank you in advance.

Most of your games will rely on a good Circle of Healing. Either with Blademaster so you can get huge value on the board early on and deal with your opponent's minions or if you fall behind, wipe the board with Soulpriest (Soulpriest makes all your healing do damage instead, which will provide nice 4 damage aoe from CoC). As with most control decks, your position on the board is the key to win. Win the board, win the game.

The Wild Pyromancer hampers many aggressive decks as such decks often aim to dish out as much damage as it could early to mid game in order to finish you off easily near the end game.. Best example to show it (also one of it's best uses) was the Pyromancer + Coin + PW:Shield combo. It's hard to pass the benefit of being able to do AOE damage to all creatures for as early as the 2nd turn. Even without running second, that kind of capability often guarantees minimal damage dealt to you by the enemy early game thus giving you enough time to attain your full potential..

 

Just helping to see the usefulness of the said card, either way if you don't like it you can always not use it..

 

===========

 

Currently have a similar deck but with only one Auchenai Soulpriest, two Questing Adventurers instead of Sunfury Protectors and tweaking to fit 2 Holy Smites (to compliment WildPyro and QuestAd), a Twilight Drake (which often has 6-7 health) and 2 Spellbreakers (coz' nowadays silencing something strong is pretty nice)..

The Deck doesn't work for me. I had a lot more wins witch cheaper ones. Not enough removal for control.

Current strategy mentions Chillwind Yeti as a viable target for Sunfury Protector's battecry

The deck list doesn't contain either of those cards.

Neither card is in the deck list.

Thanks for pointing this out. We've fixed it :)

That's not a cool build... I climbed well enough with my own primitive conception, only to fall lamentably after switching to this build... I have revised it a little bit - half of it bit to be more specific - and I'm climbing again... The build lacks "cohesion"; Does not have the "kick"

I guess I'll be the voice of dissent and say I have been enjoying this deck, and am currently on a winning streak with it. I've crawled out of the grave many times thanks to its strong end game. Thanks so much for sharing!

      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!
