Can the author give some more insight on this deck? I'm losing 8 out of 10 games with it.

The basic strategy is to get minions on board, and preserve them using your Hero Power. Healing a minion is usually better than playing a minion if you have a choice between the two. The idea is to create value by having one of your cards deal with 2 or 3 of their's, and just slowly gain an advantage by having more options available than your opponent.

Cards like Thoughsteal play into this, since it gives you more options in your deck than your opponent, Power Word Shield creates bigger Health pools so you can get more value out of your Hero Power, same with Temple Enforcer etc.

Why do you not use Velens chosen? It is a fantastic card if you use it on turn 3 or 4, and can even be used to make a stronger Holy Nova. Also it is just a common card; you could probably switch it out with Spider tank, or even Shattered Sun cleric since it also fits the budget of 1000 dust.

Velen's Chosen is a fine card, and you can definitely include it if you like, I just chose to go the route of more consistent minions in this deck. Velen's can sometimes be a dead card sat in your hand the whole game.

There's a lot, obviously as a deck that is built on a tight budget there are many sub-optimal card choices, but it's impossible to build a comprehensive list without knowing what each specific player has access to. Look at our full budget Priest decks, or the Priest crafting guide if you want to figure out what other cards are good in Priest.

Do you think it would be good to replace the power word: shields with voodoo doctors and the shattered sun clerics with earthen ring farseers?

It is just an mediocre deck that shoudn´t be played above rank 17. It has some bad card choices and needs to be updated to be a good deck. I tried it but just won 30% of the games I played. As a example, it should have valens choosen in it and it needs to dump the clerics. 

I would rate it 3/10 because it´s dosen´t fit with the meta and because it wouldn´t be close to beat the decks in rank 10-12!

Haha!

Thanks for your input buddy.

Yeah, why would I want card draw anyway?

Also, just dropped by to say that I subbed the boulderfist for Onyxia. Randomly got it and I wanted to try it out and it's been great. It's fantastic boom bot fodder.

I replaced Sun Clerics with E.R. Farseers, Azure Drake & Boulder with 2x Sludge Belcher. The deck seems fine and games turn out quite nice, but I seem to lack something which I already figured out.

 

Where could I place silence or silencing owl in this deck?

Guest that one guy

All of the decks on this website boast ranks about 5 levels too high from where they can really get.  There is not a single deck for a priest that can even touch rank 5.  I have played them all out and sadly there is just no chance of any of them.  You need one deck to get to 18, then another to get to 15, then another to get down to 12.  Then you need another deck to get you to rank 8 then you need one of the "legend" decks to get yourself down to rank 6-7.  Each deck is designed to counter a different part of the meta.  This has nothing to do with this website, but very much with how much blizzard has failed to balance this game.  I am really starting to lose faith in what blizzard is able to put out on the market.  Hearthstone has become paper rock scissors just like PVP in Warcraft.  Starcraft has always been this way, just sad thats what they decided to do with all of their games.  Maybe this is just nostalgia, but i like when better players had a better chance of winning at games than lesser skilled players were.  Marketing and trying to make money i guess outweighed the pride of making a good game

So very, very wrong.

Maybe the decks on the site boast ranks higher than *you* can get, that's very different.

Like you're actually telling me that there is no one playing any of the Priest decks on this site that is above Rank 5 right now? Or has ever achieved that rank? You're insane.

Try crafting cards which are not golden. It suddenly becomes 100 dust only.. :)

Hey Sottle, so I'm trying out your Cheap Priest Deck atm, since I'm new to Hearthstone and therefore rather limited on cards. I got a bit lucky with packs though and also crafted some of the cards you use in your more expensive decks, so my question is:

Would it be fine to simply replace cards from the cheap deck with cards used in your more expensive decks, that I think fulfill the same purpose? Or would it be better just to sit on them and wait until I can create on of the higher decks, to not risk doing any stupid exchanges?

 

Was thinking about Cabal Shadow Priest for 1 of the Temple Guards for example. And maybe shadow madness for... 1 of the 3 mana minions?

Another question I forgot: I feel that often if I try to hold back Nortshire, Pyromancer etc. for when I can make use of their abilties, I fall back too far to ever get back in the game... Is there any general advice or a rule of thumb you can give for when to use them as a body, and when to hold them back? Thanks in advance already.

Yeah as a rule you will generally be ok replacing cards with other cards from the higher dust cost decks if they fit the same sort of spot on the curve.

      A new hand-buff Spell for Warrior continues the theme set by Armagedillo.
      A new Warrior card has been revealed on the Chinese streaming platform Douyu: Into the Fray!

      It continues the Taunt Warrior theme set by Armagedillo. It compares favourably to Stolen Goods, Soul Infusion and Smuggler's Run (a card whose archetype, hand-buff Paladin, never quite took off). Into the Fray has the potential to produce a lot of raw stats for 1 Mana, so we won't be surprised if it ends up seeing play.

      Diseased Vulture, Neferset Ritualist and Anubisath Warbringer are the latest cards to be revealed from Saviors of Uldum.
       
      Two new cards have been revealed on the Japanese website UDN, in addition to one which was shared by Blizzard ANZ overnight.
      From UDN, we got Diseased Vulture and Neferset Ritualist:

      Diseased Vulture has a similar condition to Duskbat and Nethersoul Buster, but arguably a greater payoff than either. It's also repeatable, rather than being a one-time effect - if you stick this card to the board or combine it with multiple self-damage effects like Spirit Bomb, it can get some major value.
      Neferset Ritualist has solid stats for a 2-Mana Minion and an interesting effect reminiscent of Hozen Healer. Restoring Health to Minions isn't always the most useful effect in Hearthstone, but this card does a lot for its cost.
      Priest already has good incentives to run Minions like Injured Blademaster and Damaged Stegotron which damage themselves thanks to their synergy with resurrect effects (including Psychopomp, a powerful new addition in Saviors of Uldum). It's possible that Neferset Ritualist could be played alongside these minions to restore them to their original stats, although as a 2/3 itself it's a poor addition to the pool of resurrect minions.
      We also saw Anubisath Warbringer revealed by Blizzard ANZ on Twitter late last night.

      It doesn't look like much on its own, but as an expensive Deathrattle minion it could have some utility alongside synergy cards like Coffin Crasher and the new Rogue Legendary, Anka, the Buried. 
      Anubisath Warbringer was revealed with a short video that you really should go and see for yourself. It's a time lapse of the card being sculpted out of sand, and the craftsmanship on display is seriously impressive.

      Polish YouTuber MKRR has revealed two new Rogue cards designed around the Combo mechanic: Hooked Scimitar and Whirlkick Master.
       
      The latest card reveals from Saviors of Uldum have been posted by Polish YouTuber MKRR: Hooked Scimitar and Whirlkick Master!

      Hooked Scimitar looks like a powerful weapon in any Rogue deck - finding activators for the Combo effect has never been problematic, and a 4/2 Weapon for 3 Mana is a very good deal. It will be interesting to see whether decks built around Raiding Party will favour this card over Waggle Pick, which is more expensive but has a potential upside through its Deathrattle.
      Whirlkick Master is a little harder to evaluate. It's potentially a good little value factory, and it can start a chain of generated cards much the same way Lyra the Sunshard and Underbelly Angler can. 2 Mana 1/2s aren't great, but this might be one to keep an eye on.

      GameSpot have revealed a new 1-Mana neutral Minion. It has a huge payoff for those who can complete its elaborate ritual.
       
      GameSpot have revealed the latest card from Saviors of Uldum: Mogu Cultist!

      It's an inauspicious 1 Mana 1/1 until you can complete its "ritual" by getting 7 copies on the board at once. Do that and you'll be rewarded with Highkeeper Ra, a huge threat which should seal your opponent out of the game, if not simply deal lethal damage on the spot. It's a similar challenge to that posed by the recently revealed Desert Obelisk, but more extreme in both payoff and difficulty.

      It will take time to figure out how to achieve this condition. It could be fairly straightforward in Rogue with the use of Lab Recruiter and Togwaggle's Scheme, but will that be a better plan than simply spamming huge Pogo-Hoppers?
      In other classes the options are less obvious. It might be possible in Priest, thanks to Mass Resurrection and a plethora of copy effects like Vivid Nightmare, but nothing immediately leaps out at us. Let us know if you can solve the puzzle in the comments below!
      GameSpot also published an interview with Hearthstone designers Peter Whalen and Alec Dawson to accompany the card reveal, in which they do some light theory-crafting on the new card. Peter Whalen expanded on the fantasy behind it:

      A new Mage card has been revealed by Brazilian YouTuber Nightmare.
       
      A new card from Saviors of Uldum has been revealed by the Brazilian YouTuber Nightmare: Tortollan Pilgrim!

      It's reminiscent of Tortollan Primalist, Grand Archivist and Spiteful Summoner. Like the latter two cards, it rewards you for building a minion-heavy deck with a few high-impact spells at the top of the curve.
      If you've been pining for the return of Yogg-Saron, Hope's End, Tortollan Pilgrim might help scratch that itch in combination with Puzzle Box of Yogg-Saron.

      Other potentially powerful things to do with the card would be Flamestrike. Luna's Pocket Galaxy and Power of Creation. If you can play it on an empty board, it could even cast Conjurer's Calling on itself for two random 8-Drops. And as the card says "Copy", you'll still have the card in your deck available to draw into later, which wasn't the case with Grand Archivist.
