How to play this deck against Paladins? Especially Secret and Face Rush? So far such encounters are almost always a humiliation for me.

You play your early minions (Chow, Cleric, Deathlord) which are better than their early minions and you make efficient trades, then you AoE them when necessary and survive, that's about it. It's not a particularly difficult matchup.

It just doesn't work, at all. Early minions are efficient but there are few of them and Pal can generate his minions twice faster. Priest has AOE for 5-6 mana, it's quite late and its usually not too much effective because of shields and secrets. Anyway Pal can fill board again many many times per game, and he does (

I beg to differ, there's a good chance you're just making bad decisions without knowing it, if you want to post a video of your games i'd be happy to take a look at them and let you know if you're doing anything wrong.

Best non-legendary or Naxx/FirstWingBrM replacements for Sylvanas and Justicar? Currently Im running Feugen and Stallag... Would you recommend something else?

I have this whole deck except for Justicar. I replaced her with my other legendary, 6-cost card, Thaurissan. (I spent $40 getting packs and still no luck with Justicar...sleep.png) However, I love this deck! Better than my mage mech rush deck I have. I must agree though, it's weakest against Paladins.

Sylvanna is unreplaceable. Justicar can be swapped for Thaurissan or Reno Jackson. Reno is worst, since it's only useful when you are fatigued and most of the games will be a dead card.

I would replace Sylvanna for a second affairs madness, or a second mind control, or Emperor Thaurissan. All options are worse, but have some synergy with this deck

Any LoE updates to this deck? I am sure Entomb and the Curator are very valuable to the grinding style of this deck. But I am not sure what to cut in their favour.

I really enjoyed this deck a lot before LoE and would definitely like to see it much stronger after LoE updates.

 

This is what I think,

-1xSWD  -1xMindControl , +2xEntomb

-1xChow, -1xShadow Madness , +2 Curator

-1xThoughtsteal, +1 Vol'jin

The newly posted Midrange Priest deck actually looks rather similar to this list plus natural LoE updates. 

 

Should the two maybe be merged? Or am I missing some key differences?

I would like to say that this deck isn't very good. The northshire clerics aren't really drawing into anything important in rounds 2-4, and the deathlords often times put me into fatal situations at early turns. The zombie chows are only good if you draw them on your first turn, finding them in turn 15 - 20 is usually fatal. For example, if a warrior were to simply whirlwind (or any low cost clear) into an execute on a deathlord, chances are he's ending up with a high cost (especially since control is popular) minion for FREE allowing him to do massive early damage he wouldn't be able to do otherwise. The clears Holy Nova and Light Bomb are just way to expensive to be used on something he shouldn't have at turn 4-7

That is why you don't play a Deathlord against Control Warrior on turn 3 unless you are already holding Shadow Word: Death. There is no need to do so, either, as Control Warrior can not produce the quick starts against which Deathlord is included in the deck.
