Great deck, exactly the kind of guide I was looking for.

 

I do not own Vol'jin & Chillmaw. What combination of rag/boom/cairne/nef/alex could replace them at best?

I was thinking nefarian & dr boom to keep a steady dragon count as well as a good 7 drop to not impact the curve too much. 

You thoughts?

If you're adding one BGH target, you should definitely add two, so Nefarian and Boom seems right to me as well.

This is the exact kind of deck that I am looking for. Thank you very much!

 

The only card I don't have is Chillmaw and I want to avoid using BGH targets as they seem to be in every deck. Today I was lucky to get the new priest legendary (confessor). Is it a good idea to include her in this deck?  

 

If not what other card can i include. I have these other potential leg inclusions Chromaggus/KT/Emperor/Loatheb. Other possible inclusions i can think of are Dragonkin sorceror and my own BGH. Please help.

Hi Sottle, I'm currently playing with almost your old legendary deck, the differences are Vojin->Thaurissan and Sylvanas Windrunner->Neferian. What I'd like to ask you is, would you suggest me to switch to this deck when I have all cards( and I'm missing almost all of these non BRM/basic cards) or should I upgrade to this deck card by card?

This deck is so cool! Was struggeling around level 15 but immediately got a 13-2 win streak with (95% version of) this deck and got to level 10 for the first time.

 

Here are some changes I made (feel free to give feedback):

  • replaced 1 Cabal Shadow Priest with Rend Blackhand (for extra late game control)
  • replaced vol'jin with Confessor Paletress for more late game power (Ive experienced this one to be a match decider often)
  • replaced one Blackwing Corruptor with Holy Smite

hey sottle, i love love love this deck. unfortunately i feel like it needs one more catchup mechanism, especially against that crazy 10 drop wallet warrior is carrying. What do you think about defender for lightbomb?

I've played this deck for exactly 30 games now.. It's going well, overall win ratio 60%. Problem is mages and shamans. I have 0% win against shaman (0-5) and 4-7 vs mages. Problem with shaman seems to be there is no real way to stop his totemspamming, one Holy nova isn't enough. I doubt a lightbomb would fix that.. I'm thinking mass dispel should work rather well. leaving him with a full board of totems doing nothing. It might also be useful vs secret paladin, mages and other priests. Any thoughts? Maybe replace Dark Cultist; i find that card not doing very much often.

I have noticed that I have problem against aggroplayer, and always loose ground in the beginning.

 

In a lot of cases I come back with this  great late game deck, but in some games its too late.

 

What can you replace to get more control earlier in the game?

You should have plenty to keep yourself stable early in the game, this deck already plays stronger early drops than most Priest decks, but if you really want more, you can replace Dark Cultist with Zombie Chow.

Lightbomb is ok, but i'm not a huge fan of it with this deck, you should be aiming to have minions in play more often than not, and just use those to fight for the board, so Lightbomb is a real double edged sword in this deck.

what about dropping the cultist for another holy nova?

 

It may seem weird, but with the deck as is I often get flooded and lose when my dragons get removed, and often I am desperate for my holy nova.

 

Also what could be replaced for a weapon removal? I find the matchup against warrior extremely hard, because he removes every single early game card I have with his weapons and lategame I get fucked by strong cards and shield slam.

You can do that if you like, personally I like to be the guy being proactive with minions with this deck, not the guy sat around holding removal. If you're finding yourself behind on board too often, it may be that you're not playing the board correctly, you should be able to outvalue other decks easily with minions.

The deck is pretty tight to be able to fit a weapon removal in, you don't really want to be cutting any of the Dragon related cards, and the other cards are just super high value threats.

Hi! Very good deck, I like playing with dragons. smile.png

I only have one Twilight Guardian and I replaced it with Twilight Drake, what do u think?

Also, I don't have Vol'jin and I guess he's there to help remove the big health guys and I have no idea what can I put insead of him.

Any ideas? Maybe Mind Control???

Black knight would probably be a pretty good replacement for Vol'jin, as they will often find similar targets.

Sadly lacking a Sylvanas (next craft), but I am running this with the following changes (partially from the above):

 -1 Sylvanas / +1 Thaurissan

 -1 Vol'Jin / +1 Holy Nova

 

I just found I want wanting a Nova so many games where I just got swarmed, and I normally found my self lacking a good target Vol'jin he sat dead in my hand a lot of the time (when I did play him it was typically a win more play).

 

Having great fun with it thought.

A good replacement for Vol'jin? I was thinking about a Black Knight to still avoid BGH.

 

Yeah, I think Black Knight is somewhat reasonable in the meta currently.

When I first started playing with this deck I pushed till level 8 without any resistance, then the season ended and ever since my winrate is around 45%..(measured over 70+ games).

 

Is it possible that many have adapted their decks by now and have become more efficient at countering this deck?

Some people have been adding Confessor Paletress to the Dragon deck. How good is that card in this deck and what would yo replace?

      The iconic final boss of Zul'Gurub is one of the neutral Legendaries of Rastakhan's Rumble and it seems slightly underwhelming.
      The reveal was made by Forbes. There's also an interview with Dave Kosak and Liv Breeden on the card, as well as a video with its gameplay.

      It's amazing how faithful this card is to the Corrupted Blood mechanic from World of Warcraft that led to an actual epidemic in the game - which even became a topic of study by the Centre for Disease Control. Hakkar definitely puts a timer on the match once his Deathrattle triggers and could be used to break Combo decks. However, the fact that it's a Deathrattle and not a Battlecry decreases its power and you still have to build a whole deck around it. Then again, a lot of people thought Mecha'thun wouldn't work when it was released and it has proven to be quite successful.
      What do you think about this card? As a reminder, you can find anything related to Rastakhan's Rumble in our dedicated hub.

      The Rogue Legendary Loa has just been unveiled!
      The reveal was made by MKRR3 on YouTube. The video is in Polish.

      Gral, the Shark has a Tutor effect but it quite weak to Silence. Still, Rogue has quite a few ways to trigger the Deathrattle and now with Spirit of the Shark, it can trigger the Battlecry twice as well. At first sight, though, it feels like a weak card: Silence destroys it, high mana cost and Rogue traditionally runs quite a few small minions as well. It also doesn't seem to fit with the Pirate theme Rogue will have in Rastakhan's Rumble, altough perhaps we can see Beast Rogue with Oondasta and the recently revealed "Beast King".

      Two new cards were revealed by Asian streamers: an Epic neutral minion and the Paladin Spirit.
      The first card was unveiled by Chinese streamer LaLaLa on Douyu. The name of the card isn't final.

      The first thought that comes when looking at this card is that it's great support for Quest Hunter. The problem is support cards for this archetype were printed in previous expansions and the result was always the same. Beast King could definitely fit into a Beast deck along with Oondasta - and since they are both Neutral cards, this doesn't necessarily have to be Hunter. Hi'reek, the Warlock Loa, and his copies could benefit from the +2/+2 buff. Beast King could also find its place in a Beast Druid deck with minions like Charged Devilsaur and Tyrantus. These Warlock and Druid combos, though, sound a bit like win-more situations.
      The Paladin Spirit was revealed by Korean streamer (and dancer) Rhdgurwn.

      The text box may not be the final version as "stats equal to its Cost" is a bit vague, since it could mean a 4/4 or a 3/1 or a 1/3 or a 2/2. However, it would make sense that if you cast a 4-mana spell, the Spirit would summon a 4/4 Tiger and that's how we are going to treat it. At 4 mana, this different version of Summoning Stone seems a bit slow and definitely promotes a more Spell Control-oriented playstyle, which is what Paladin seems to be heading to in Rastakhan's Rumble. It definitely makes for a strong combo with Spikeridged Steed.

      The reveal season for Rastakhan's Rumble has kicked off with the customary live stream. This time, the hosts are Senior Game Designer Peter Whalen and Regiskillbin.
      The stream has conculded. All the cards revealed will also be added into our Rastakhan's Rumble hub. The full schedule for the following card reveals can be found here.
      Nine cards were revealed:







      The counter doesn't start over if you bounce Jan'alai!
      The Hero Power hitting adjacent minions counts for Jan'alai's counter! Works with Frost Lich Jaina's Hero Power. However, Ice Walker only freezes the targeted minion and not the adjacent ones with the Spirit present.
