I am sorry man but in this meta. It is impossible to climb in ranks. If you dont draw some low cost minions on turn 1-2. If you dont, you are screwed.

You can use another deck to adapt to the meta, then? :)

Uh, that's why there's a Mulligan process? You get a pretty good level of control over what's in your opening hand.

Really sweet deck! Having trouble vs. paladin quartermaster and opted for a mass dispel in place of 1 clockwork gnome. Not sure if this is just a stupid move, or if a second holy nova is better?

In the mulligan section of both the full-budget and the low-budget versions of this deck, "Shadowbomber" is mentioned (and linked) instead of "Shadowboxer"...

Reacting to something that is giving you trouble and making changes is never a stupid move. I personally don't think Mass Dispel will show too much value, but if it works for you, let us know!

Tested in myself in Legend last season with a favourable winrate. Zetalot who is widely considered one of the top Priest players in the World was also using very similar lists towards the end of last season in Legend rank.

If you can't get past Rank 15 with this list, the problem lies with you. There's more to the game than just putting the right cards in your deck.

Hello i have been playing this deck and i would like to ask why not tinkertown tec instead of spider tank? Against mech mages my spider tank often loses to their tinkertown tec.

ive been playing with this deck and got to rank 12 then started losing, traded a spider tank for a tinker tech because i was having trouble with preists and mages and replaced mind control with kel'thuzad because he lets you keep board control late game which i found this deck fell off and i finished my climb without to much trouble. cheers all hope this helps

This tempo deck is really really great. I only have one issue with it, although it may just be my playstyle.

 

I really dislike clockwork gnome. Every time I play it, it either gets mortal coiled or fireblasted, or otherwise killed off, so I swapped it with a shadow word pain and a tinkertown technician. are the clockwork gnomes essential?

Why the drakes?

Read the deck description:

 

Your mid-game also contains numerous other cards in order to maintain the tempo strategy of this deck. Azure Drake is great for digging deeper into your deck and ensuring that you always have strong options in your hand to maintain your advantage.

Considering there's only 3 spell dmg cards in the deck, isnt it a waste to have so many +spell dmg cards (2 velens chosen, 2 drakes)? 

I seem to have trouble even getting past rank 15 with this deck.

Why are you talking about Spell Damage in response to a quote that doesn't mention it at all? Drake is mostly just used to drop a decent sized minion on the board and making sure that you have enough resources to keep going, sometimes the Spell Damage is a nice bonus, that's all.

Which deck this one or Legendary Priest Control would you favor?

 

Keep in mind that I also mean for the card swaps as well as I can switch out the MC for Boom for this deck and the other swaps for Legendary Priest Control.

 

Thanks Sottle, I have been using your guides since season 2; much appreciated!

      This week's episode features a fresh take on a popular deck, courtesy of Casie.
      Can you guess the next move?
      Situation #22: Let's Even the Odds
      Picking up where we left off last week, we find ourselves in the middle of an odd/even matchup between Warlock and Shaman. I picked this situation partially because it was an interesting spot with many options available to us, and also because its a ladder situation I highly doubt any of my readers have encountered before:

      Commenters quickly identified several key factors about this matchup, namely that Defile and Hellfire are off the table for our opponent and that the only "board clear" available for our opponent is Despicable Dreadlord. Our opponent is more likely to have single target removal (such as Voodoo Doll) or is looking to play a demon-related 5 drop next turn in Skull of the Man'ari, Possessed Lackey, or Doomguard.
      Bozonik summed up this situation excellently in his comment from last week's thread:
      There seemed to be a consensus among commenters that "Option 1", Hero Power + Sea Giant was the line here. It puts a big nasty minion on the board, applying pressure and forcing our opponent to have Voodoo Doll. In the heat of the moment I went with "Option 2", the full clear, but after looking back on things and reading over the comments I believe Hero Power + Giant was the correct line. Despicable Dreadlord is really the only card which gives us serious trouble next turn (since our opponent won't be able to play Possessed Lackey and kill it) and this line plays around Dreadlord while applying just as much pressure as the other options.
      I was secretly hoping that the tap + Giant wasn't the correct line here (because its the most obvious one), but the obvious solution is often the correct one. If you're ever in a situation such as this where you have no idea what your opponent is up to, it's probably best to go for the "obvious" line and not get cute.
      Situation #23: Broken Mirrors
      Today's deck comes courtesy of Kevin "Casie" Eberlein, who cut the dragon package from Mind Blast Priest to turn the deck into something with much more of a combo/aggro feel to it. Many pros are pegging Mind Blast Priest to be the next "best deck in the meta" after the nerfs drop, and Casie's list has a serious advantage in the mirror match:
      Though I didn't find nearly as much success with the deck as Casie did, it did provide me with plenty of interesting situations for What's the Move! Here's the one I ended up choosing for this week's episode:

      It's turn 2, we're on The Coin, and our ladder opponent just played a Wild Pyromancer. For the purposes of this exercise, we can say that we're 100% confident our opponent is on Mind Blast Priest. However, this isn't a mirror match at all. We have Prophet Velen, Holy Smite, two copies of Holy Fire (most Mind Blast Priests run just one), and Lifedrinker in our deck, which gives us a huge advantage in late-game Anduin vs Anduin races. Knowing that we have an advantage in the late game should color our decision heavily on turn two, where have a surprising number of options available to us.
      So, what's the move?
