2. Strategy

This Mid Budget Priest Prophet Velen Control Deck offers various means of establishing board control early and bringing the game to the late stages where your cards excel.

The early game can often be played rather passively, unless you are matched against aggressive decks, in which case you can start pushing towards board control from the very start. Northshire Cleric will often be used for card advantage, however if buffed with Power Word: Shield, the Cleric can provide amazing board presence in the early game.

Wild Pyromancer can easily create card advantage and diminish your opponent's pressure, when its ability is triggered with cheap spells, such as The Coin, Power Word: Shield, or Holy Smite.

Circle of Healing is extremely powerful when combined with the right cards.

  • Injured Blademaster healed with Circle of Healing brings amazing value on the board and will often create card advantage as it is extremely difficult to kill, especially when kept alive with your Hero Power.
  • Northshire Cleric can potentially allow you to cycle Circle of Healing if there is a damaged minion on the board (including on your opponent's side). In most situations, however, you will attempt to use your Circle of Healing when there are multiple damaged minions and create card advantage.
  • Auchenai Soulpriest brings decent minion value on the board and turns all your healing into damage. Among other things, this means that your Hero Power can be used to deal damage and Circle of Healing becomes a global 4-damage AoE that can easily wipe out an entire board.

Thoughtsteal provides pure card advantage, however the cards you get are random, which can sometimes make it rather situational.

Sen'jin Shieldmasta excels against aggressive decks, as it brings a lot of defensive value on the board and can easily slow down any aggressive opponent.

Azure Drake is an outstanding minion because of its card efficiency. You will often be able to create card advantage and benefit from the Spell Damage buff it provides.

Holy Nova provides AoE damage and healing, which will often prove to be essential against minion-heavy aggressive decks. It can also create card advantage, if it heals minions and Northshire Cleric is on the board.

Holy Fire can take out most mid-range minions as well as provide valuable healing. Keep in mind that Holy Fire will damage you if you have Auchenai Soulpriest on the board, and should be used with caution in such cases.

Cabal Shadow Priest can be great, as it can often steal decent minions such as Loot Hoarder, Bloodmage Thalnos, Harvest Golem, or Acolyte of Pain, which makes up for its slightly low minion value at its cost.

Prophet Velen can sometimes be used to amplify your Hero Power for emergency healing, however in most situations you will use it as a surprise finisher with your Mind Blast. Prophet Velen presents a substantial threat to your opponent, and they will likely take it out the same turn, which is why you should hold on to it until you can get at least one Mind Blast off. Should Prophet Velen survive a turn, you can easily kill your opponent from full health by hitting them for 30 with Holy Fire + 2x Mind Blast.

2.1. Synergies and Combinations

Northshire Cleric + the healing provided by your Hero Power, Earthen Ring Farseer, Circle of Healing, or Holy Nova will always create card advantage.

Wild Pyromancer + any spell will trigger a 1-damage global AoE that can be used to counter aggressive opponents.

Injured Blademaster + Circle of Healing brings insane value on the board, that can easily create card advantage as well as establish and maintain early board control.

Auchenai Soulpriest + Circle of Healing will often clear the entire board, as it provides a global 4-damage AoE.

Auchenai Soulpriest + Hero Power or Earthen Ring Farseer can be used to take out your opponent's minions as the healing turns into damage.

2.2. Mulligan / Starting Hand

In general you should attempt to keep Circle of Healing, Power Word: Shield, Northshire Cleric, and Injured Blademaster. This means removing any expensive cards as well as all mid-range removal such as Shadow Word: Death and Holy Fire.

Auchenai Soulpriest can be kept if you suspect your opponent is playing a minion-heavy aggressive deck, and you can aim for a turn 4 board wipe with Circle of Healing, however in any other situation you should mulligan it away.

2.3. Card Swaps

Should you often struggle with the early game, you can include Ancient Watcher and Silence in your deck. Silence can be used to trigger your Wild Pyromancer's ability, turn Ancient Watcher into an attacker, or simply silence an enemy minion. Once you decide to include Ancient Watchers, you should also consider a Defender of Argus or two in your deck.
