Thanks Sottle as usual for this great deck.

What card could I use instead of Justicar?

Or would you recommend crafting it? I fell it has limited use in just 3 classes (priest, warrior, Pali) and fell I have higher priorities

Sylvanas or Boom should be fine as a "budget" swap.

Thanks, Boom seems to be doing the job just fine :)

Another question, is the first time that I use deathlord. Any advice on how to use it effectively?

I love vs aggro but what do u do vs midrange or control? Hold it and not play it? When is a good time to use it in these matchups?

Try to hold it back against Paladin and Priest - they have the strongest removals against Deathlord (Equality, Keeper of Uldaman and SW:P) until you check for them.

You can play it against control, as it will often take them a lot of resources to remove it. While the opponent is trying to remove it, build a board to be able to remove whatever it drops. It will often be something around 4-mana minion. The best scenario would be dropping the biggest minion which you will remove with SW:D. But just as against Priest and Pally, check for removals first.

this control deck seems to be weaker against...other control decks. how do you recommend playing against golden monkeys/control warrior/priest? any ‘threats’ i throw against them are easily countered, while i know if i wait there's no way to win. midrange threats like shield maiden/dragons from priest aren't easily either. i lost many ranks going to this deck from before please help

I have tough time using this deck, my win rate somehow just 20~30% for this deck. I often struggle against tempo deck which I not able to built my deck presence and our aoe is not enough to come back. they can have 3 or 4 mobs like 3/4 or 4/5 by the turn we reach 5/6mana where our aoe clearance able to play...

In that case you can swap Naarus and Chows. Zombie Chow can help you gain the early board presence if you don't draw into Auchenai + Circle and he can be played with Auchenai to be useful even in the late-game.

Yes, this trash deck has been taken to only legend. Quite bad, it can't even take you to rank 0 legend, right? 

Also, if you just say "I got completely rekt while playing on noob ranks, this deck is trash, even if people play it in legend". Do you have any idea what constructive criticism means?

This deck seems to be a great deck. However, it needs the addition of zombie chow against aggro decks. It is an amazing starter for priest, and I have won many a game by playing chow, coin, north shire vs. Hunter. Also, Deathlord should be replaced with a stronger card like thoughtsteal, if you are facing control. The great stats are downsides by the ability; if a control deck can destroy it and obtain a huge minion like Ysera from this, then you would be devastated. Other replacements for Deathlord could be a dark cultist, another holy nova or a late game minion like Dr. Boom. Vol'jin can be used to remove large minions, and is a replacement option also.

The deck already runs 2 Deathlord against aggro decks. They are usually enough to stop them. However, if you face serious amount of aggro decks, you can add the Chows as well.

 

So, you want to add Chows, but remove Deathlords in case you face control? Make up your mind. They are included to stop aggro and yes, if you face control, you should remove them. But why the hell do you say that the deck needs addition of Chows to stop aggro, yet needs to get rid of Deathlords because of control? That's simply a contradiction.

This is simply because chows can be used against both aggro and control, while I think death lords can not. I can see how that appears as a contradiction though.

Deathlord is a stronger aggro-stopped than Chow because he is able to trade into multiple 1- and 2-drops, whereas Chow can trade into only one.

So, you wrote "it needs the addition of zombie chow against aggro decks", which is does seems contradictory to "Deathlord should be replaced with a stronger card like thoughtsteal, if you are facing control", but you meant it like "this deck needs to be included to stop aggro, because deathlord is bad in control matchups and therefore should be removed"?

Yeah I most certainly got that mixed up.

This deck is working great for me! I was wondering about replacing ysera with elise. I find elise is better against aggro then ysera due the mana cost of both of them. I have been stuck with ysera in my hand against aggro many times and been frustrated by my inability to play anything.

Maybe you could try Midrange Priest or Dragon Priest.

With Lightbomb, Deathlord, Naaru and Shrink going away, do you think a similar control priest deck like this will be viable after Standard hits? I just unwrapped a shiny new Justicar so I'm gonna learn this just because it looks like A LOT of fun to play.

This deck is absolutely incredible! I love it so much, it reminds me of when i used to play china priest.. i guess this is just a modern china. i have had about an 85% winrate from ranks 11 to 7. if you have the cards, or the dust to make it, do so. all i am missing is one lightbomb and i substituted for an excavated evil and it works wonders

I have all the cards but not entomb. I know that is a key card for the deck, and i'm working to get it, but can i replace it somehow? One more S:D and Holy fire? Or Vol jin?

Entomb is a tech card, and I recommend you to replace it with other tech cards, such as Zombie Chow second Nova against aggro, Vol'jin or SW:D against control or even Ysera could be usable.

      The first card since the initial annoucement for Knights of the Frozen Throne has been revealed by C4mlann earlier this morning.
      Let's take a look at the first KotFT card officially revealed by C4mlann.

       
      Blizzard kicks off the reveal with a card that seems unplayable in all currently popular decks, and subpar in arena. Although some players have suggested silence priest as a potential target, Ticking Abomination is actually detrimental to play without a form of silence in hand, unlike other popular silence targets. The caveat here is that since this is one the first card revealed, we don't actually know what's in store. Might there be a way to transfer Deathrattle effects to enemy minions? Will KotFT control decks play no minion before turn 5? One potential use for this one might lie in "forcing" your opponent to trigger your own Deathrattle effects with a high value card, but we'll have to wait and see. We might even see something that gives Deathrattle effects Lifesteal, the expansion's new mechanic, for some minion-based healing.
      For more information, please check out our guide to the new Hearthstone expansion.

      A new Tavern Brawl has been introduced this week by Ahune the Frost Lord himself.
      In this Brawl, you will play as either Uther or Jaina. They both have premade decks and Uther is reportedly slightly better than Jaina, which is interesting since Mage usually dominates in Tavern Brawls.
      Here is Uther's deck:
      Jaina uses a Reno deck, minus the Reno:
      Both heroes are immune to damage and they cannot be healed nor keep armor. The only way to damage them is by killing the Ragnaros? minions. These are 1/4 minions and there is one of them at each side of the board. They cannot attack and upon death they deal 4 damage to the opponent of the current player. This means that you can kill both minions (the one on your side and the one on your opponent's side) and your opponent will take all the damage. Moreover, once a Ragnaros? dies, a new one will appear thus making it possible to kill multiple of them in one turn.

      Some tips you should know:
      If the game reaches the fatigue stage, in the next round the enemy that has the least amount of health will automatically die and their opponent will be crowned as the winner. At the moment, Ice Block and Eye for an Eye seem to be bugged and they are not working as intended. This will be fixed soon. Bomb Squad and Ancient Curse deal no actual damage to you, so don't be afraid! This is the 110th Brawl and it's part of the Frost Festival. If you want to find out more about the Frost Festival, check our main article on it.

      As Ragnaros' Midsummer Fire Festival has ended, it is time for Ahune the Frost Lord to take over with the Frost Festival! 
      As we explained in our previous post, this is a holiday that celebrates Arena mode. Once you log in the game, you will see that Ahune is giving you a free Arena ticket for this week. This will happen for the entire duration of the festival, so in total you will get three free Arena keys.
      You will also get a free win each time you start an Arena run, whether it's from a free or a purchsed entrance key.
      You will also get a quest to play three Arena games. This weekly quest awards you with a Knights of the Frozen Throne card pack. Once again, you will receive this quest next week and the week after that accounting for a total of three Knights of the Frozen Throne packs (assuming you complete the quests).

      Feel free to check out our Arena guides and card rankings before you step into the Arena!
      As far as the themed Tavern Brawl called Ahune's Superior Brawl is concerned, you can read more about it here.
      The Frost Festival has created speculation for the next expansion. Since it will run for three weeks, it is going to end on August 9. The day after that, August 10, is thought by many to be the date that Knight of the Frozen Throne will be released.
