This is a great deck if your opponent goes afk or doesn't play any minions or removal. There's another term for proactive priest, it's called hand lock. Might as well throw molten giant in the list.

Someone is going for the most nonsensical comment on Icy Veins award?

I feel like i've been playing the deck correctly and yet I seem to still struggle against every deck. Is this better than just regular priest control? It plays so few removal spells too. I like the idea of the deck but I feel like it needs more removal maybe?

Great to see a strong dragon deck smile.png

 

If we don't have Vol'jin, how effective is it to replace him with Dr. Boom or other legendaries? Thx!

If I thought it was outright better, I would remove Control Priest from the site. Decks are rarely just better or worse than others in this game.

If you want to play a more reactive deck with removal, then Control Priest is for you.

Yeah, Boom is never a bad call.

This deck likely never gets past rank 16, if that far.

It still consistently baffles me that people feel like they have the authority to make these statements.

I assume it's much better than Dragon Pally? Pally is such a disappointment, but if this works better, then I can see it working.

Yeah, I agree with you, I find Dragon Pally to be strictly inferior to Midange Pally at the moment which is why there's no guide up.

Can I reply voljin with loatheb? or cairne bloodhoof? I'm also changing Ysera for chromaggus

I find this deck to be really good and have decent match up all round - at its heart it is a tempo deck and once it gets going it actually is quite unstoppable. It has more removal than you think - Wild Pyro + heals + spells is an absolute beast against aggro, Auchenai SP + CoH is excellent and you will activate Blackwing Corrupter more than you would think.

 

Lots and lots of options and really fun to play. Once you get rolling people have to answer YOUR minions and thus it's favourable trades all the way. Whether it's better or not but I have put in Chromaggus and Nefarion instead of Vol'jin and Sylvanas and have had some aboslute crazy combos with them late game. They also sit in your hand as additional "dragon" activators.

 

Whether this is Legendary or not I'm not in the right position to say, but I really believe with a very skilled player this can seriously kick some butt!

No love for Twilight Whelp? Is the little guy too slow of conditional for the deck?

Chow is just better. No reason to have a situational 2/3 when you have a guaranteed one.

Loatheb would be the better choice there.

The only reason I don't care for chow is that it can heal the other.   However; I chose to replace wild pyromancer with 2 mind control techs and so far it seems to be working.  Do you believe this to be a wise choice?

Healing the opponent is not important unless you're playing an aggro deck. I wouldn't cut both Pyros, but I can see cutting one for an MCT being decent.

Between Nefarian and Chromagus, which do you suggest in place of Ysera until I can get it?

What's a good replacement for sylvanas, maybe boom or another dragon? I know she's really valuable in a priest deck, unfortunately I don't have her yet. Thanks for all of your help!

Do you think a lightbomb would be better in place of Cabal to counter Handlock, Grim Patron, etc?

      Dave Kosak is here in the latest Hearthside Chat video to talk about the lore of Rastakhan's Rumble. He also revealed two Priest cards: the Loa of Death, Bwonsamdi, and his Spirit!
      If you haven't played Battle for Azeroth, the latest WoW expansion, then this video is going to be helpful in understanding the backstory of Rastakhan's Rumble:
      The two Priest cards revealed in the video synergise very well with each other:

      As Peter Whalen and Liv Breeden mentioned in their r/Hearthstone interview, Spirits are meant to be build-around cards and this is pretty apparent with Spirit of the Dead. Apart from the obvious synergy with Bwonsamdi, the Priest Spirit can work wonders in a Clone Priest deck along with Zerek's Cloning Gallery. Spirit of the Dead can also find a spot in other archetypes like Resurrect, Big and Deathrattle Priest. The card itself is quite slow and requires some setting-up, but it looks very versatile.

      Bwonsamdi, the Loa of Death, can be used simiply to draw Spirit of the Dead, then you can kill him while the Spirit is up and shuffle him back to your deck. It's easy to see the Spirit work without Bwonsamdi, but the opposite - Bwonsamdi working without his Spirit - looks like a slim possibility. Given that all Class cards in this expansion are designed to work as a "team", we might see a card (apart from the Spirit) that can make Bwonsamdi more viable. Otherwise, the Hunter Quest never really caught on, so why would it work in a traditionally anti-aggro class like Priest?

      We have a new Tavern Brawl this week and the rules are simple: both players get to have two turns, instead of one.
      This starts from the very beginning of the game, therefore giving a big advantage to Player 1. Don't be surprised if your opponent concedes when he/she finds out that he/she has to go second (or if you have to do it)!
      Doomsayer is a must-have on this Tavern Brawl, since it clears the board immediately. Flappy Bird is also a useful card and Aggro decks are generally favoured. OTK decks also can work great since you have two turns to set up your... one-turn kill. You can also experiment with Open the Waygate and Temporus; both cards work and they give you a third turn!

The hosts this time will be Dean Ayala and Brian Kibler.
      Rastakhan's Rumble will release a few days afterwards, on December 4.

      The Hearthstone heroes are trying to enjoy Rastakhan's Rumble but a fellow spectator named Belligerent Gnome is annoying Rexxar!
      Wronchi have released the second part of their Rastakan's Rumble series of animations. You remember that in the first part the nine heroes were trying to get into the Gurubashi Arena. Now, we see that Rexxar, Jaina and Anduin are enjoying the games but there's a little fellow that's too loud for Rexxar's taste.
      And here he is:

      No wonder Rexxar is angry since this is definitely a Silverback Patriarch power creep! Although one would expect that Gul'dan would be equally angry, since this is a Vulgar Homunculus with a condition for every class!
      To start the serious discussion on this card, this looks like an anti-aggro tool that can also probably find its place in aggro decks as well. It's hard to see the Battlecry trigger on turn 2 exactly, making this a bit of a slower card. Dragon Priest used to have a similar card in Wyrmrest Agent, which was easier to trigger. Even decks could be a good place for Belligerent Gnome - Even Shaman, in particular, since I don't see Warlocks dropping their beloved Homunculus.
      It's definitely a versatile card with a lot of potential and it seems balanced - for now.
