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.

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

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!

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?

A bit late to the party, would it be a good idea to play Rend Blackhand in this deck?

      The Europe Spring Playoffs and Championship took place over the weekend of May 20-21, which decided not only the new Europe Champion, but also the four players who would represent Europe at the Global Spring Championship in Shanghai next month.
      After seven rounds of Swiss, the top eight players cut to a knockout phase. The results of which were as follows:
        Hoej beat   FibEli3
        Neirea beat   INER
        Rdu beat   Casie
        Kolento beat   StanCifka
      This means that Hoej, Neirea, Rdu, and Kolento will represent Europe in the Global Championship. The top eight being so strong is a sign that the metagame is in a healthy place. All of the players were already known to be among the best in Europe, and despite their lineups differing substantially, they were still able to make it through.
      Hoej went on to take the title, beating Kolento 3-0 in the final. Hoej has been touted as one of the best players in Europe for some time, but traditionally has brought Control decks to major events. This time around, he brought a very aggressive lineup, and was rewarded for his willingness to adapt his style to the meta.
      The deck archetypes that each player brought to the event are listed below:
      Hoej: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
      Kolento: Jade Druid, Midrange Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Neirea: Jade Druid, Discover Mage, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Rdu: Aggro Druid, Face Hunter, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      The next four players to qualify for the Global Championship will be decided next week, with the Americas Spring Championships.

      The Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) European Spring Playoffs will take place this weekend, 20-21 May 2017.
      This will be the first playoff event since Journey to Un'Goro was released, and so if anyone has saved any surprise deck tech, this is the event where it will be revealed.
      The top 64 point earners, and ties, from the EU server will be joined by 8 Tavern Hero tournament qualifiers for the event, which will be played in esports bars across Europe. If you want to attend one of the events to cheer on your local favourite, the list of locations can be found here. There will be side events for anyone wishing to attend, with Blizzard prizes available for winners, and the Power Core cardback for all attendees.
      The point standings, showing the top 64, can be found here. As usual the event is stacked with many of the big names from the region. The top four will advance to the HCT Spring Global finals next month.

      There's a new update arriving in the coming weeks and it's going to bring a much requested feature to HS: completing quests while playing with your friends! The other big feature coming with this update is importing decklists, allowing you to easily copy and share your favorite decks without resorting to screenshots or outside sites! No specific ETA has been given and if you want to know all the details check out the announcement post below.
      Blizzard (source)
      Hearthstone’s upcoming update has a lot of cool stuff in it, but we wanted to call special attention to a couple of features that we’re particularly excited about. We think you’ll like them too!

      Friends Forever
      When the new Hearthstone update arrives, you’ll be able to complete quests in Friendly Challenges! Just issue a Friendly Challenge to someone on your Friends list and rack up credit for nearly any quest you can receive.
      Last year, the Friendly Feud allowed players to complete quests when they played with a friend. You gave us a ton of positive feedback about that event, and a lot of you asked us to have Friendly Feuds more often. We thought that was a good idea, so we took it a step further!
      There are some minor caveats. For example, any quests that can’t be completed as part of a Friendly Challenge aren’t eligible, such as those that require you to play vs The Innkeeper or watch a match. Most everything else is fair game though, so now you’ll have a reason to make friends with a recent opponent that isn’t just to send them a compliment.
      Sharing is Caring
      You’ll soon be able to easily copy and share decklists with Deck Importing! No more screen shotting decklists, or staring at a web page as you carefully build a deck, card by card. Trying—and sharing—a new decklist will be as simple as copy and paste!

      Here’s how it works:
      If your deck is already full, when you select the Hero portrait at the top of a deck in your collection, you’ll see a Copy button*. Press that button and your decklist will be copied to your clipboard. If you paste your decklist into a text document, it will look like this:
      Click to view sample decklist. See that conveniently highlighted ‘code’ near the bottom? That code also works on its own, making it easier to share a decklist with friends in chat or social media.
      Importing a decklist is easy. When you go to create the new deck, Hearthstone will “know” when you’ve got a valid decklist on your clipboard, so you’ll be asked if you’d like to create a new deck with the one you’ve got copied. Then you can watch your new deck be built before your eyes. You can also import decklists to Tavern Brawls!
      Don’t have all the cards a deck requires? No worries! In that case, it works just like a deck recipe. Any cards you don’t already own will appear insubstantial and you can select them for suggested replacements. You might also notice that your golden and non-golden cards now stack in decklists too!

      Deck Importing is great for finding and sharing new decks, but it’s also helpful for managing your library of decks. Save the code for decklists you rarely use, and when you’re ready to play one again, just copy and import it.
      The new update including these features will arrive in the coming weeks. We’re super excited about them, and we can’t wait to hear what you think! 
      * Desktop users can use ctrl+c to copy a decklist (you’ll get a confirmation when your copy is successful), then ctrl+v when viewing My Decks to import a decklist.
