Control Priest Wild

Recommended Posts

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"?

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.

      Doom in the Tomb is now live and the update comes with all-new 1,000 Win Portrait Rewards and 23 cards that are temporarily stepping out of Wild back into Standard. Note that the cards will remain in Standard until the next major update and exact end dates and times will be announced in the weeks ahead.
      Blizzard (Source)
      A new Hearthstone update has just arrived, featuring the “Doom in the Tomb” Hallow’s End event, Wild cards temporarily returning to Standard, portrait rewards for dedicated Hearthstone players, and much more!
      New Event - Doom in the Tomb!

      Pack your torches and latch your helmets, Heroes. The Headless Horseman has infiltrated Uldum’s deserted desert tombs, outfitted himself with powerful relics, and has set his sights on besting the battling Leagues! The new Doom in the Tomb event starts today, October 8, and will last until October 30. Here’s what’s in store:

      Week 1: Doom in the Tomb, Part 1
      Gear up with your favorite member from the League of E.V.I.L and delve into the Haunted Temple, full of the baddest bosses in Uldum! The clock is running, too – race to set the record for the fastest Temple run! Rewards Complete a run in under 1 hour and earn a Rastakhan’s Rumble Card Pack. Complete a run in under 40 minutes to earn a Golden Common Ancient Mysteries!
      Week 2: Doom in the Tomb, Part 2
      E.V.I.L has their turn, and now it’s up to Reno and the League of Explorers to join the run and flex their Temple diving speed. New enemies and challenges await!

      Rewards Complete a run in under 1 hour and receive a Golden Common Temple Berserker Complete a run in under 40 minutes to earn a Golden Rare Generous Mummy
      Week 3: The Haunted Carousel
      Get ready for the big mix-up! In this Tavern Brawl, you’ll need to strategize around minions constantly rotating board positions – all while controlling the Horseman’s time-shifted Dreadsteeds!

      Rewards Summon 100 Dreadsteeds to earn a Rise of Shadows Card Pack Dual-Class Heroes

      The Dual-Class Arena Hallow’s Eve dress-up party is back! When you start an Arena run during the Doom in the Tomb event, you’ll choose a Hero, then a Hero Power, and card offerings will feature cards from BOTH of those classes, in addition to neutral cards.
      Players who have an active Arena run when this begins will have their current run ended and will receive an Arena Ticket as compensation. To ensure that players have a chance to try out this devilish dual-class deck-building dress-up party, anyone who logs in during each of the first two weeks will receive one Arena Ticket per week! This event coincides with our normal Arena rotation. The new Arena sets in rotation are as follows: Curse of Naxxramas Goblins vs. Gnomes Blackrock Mountain The Grand Tournament League of Explorers Whispers of the Old Gods One Night in Karazhan Mean Streets of Gadgetzan Journey to Un'Goro Knights of the Frozen Throne Kobolds & Catacombs Hex & Flex Bundles

      Hex Bundle
      If you thought the League of E.V.I.L. was securely under wraps, think again! Arch-Villain Rafaam has leveraged his lackeys and put together the Hex Bundle, 20 Rise of Shadows card packs and a random Rise of Shadows Legendary card at the discounted price of $19.99 USD. Flex Bundle
      Reno’s vest just doesn’t have room for bulging biceps AND stacks of card packs. That’s why he’s whipped together the Flex Bundle! Get 20 Saviors of Uldum packs and a random Saviors of Uldum Legendary card at the discounted price of $19.99 USD. Standard Shake-Up

      Starting with today’s patch and lasting until our next major update, 23 cards from across Hearthstone history are temporarily stepping out of Wild and back into Standard. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get straight into the action. These cards will be considered "event" cards, which essentially means that they're temporary copies and not permanent additions to your collection. Even if you already own the cards you'll still receive these event copies, and when the event ends they'll disappear.
      IMPORTANT NOTE: While these cards were re-introduced during the Doom in the Tomb event, they will remain in Standard past the event's conclusion, until the launch of our next major update. More details will be shared, including exact end dates and times, in the coming weeks.
      Card List: Druid: Astral Communion Kun the Forgotten King Mage: Babbling Book Flamewaker Paladin: Mysterious Challenger Avenge Hunter: Lock and Load Call of the Wild Shaman: Evolve Thing from Below Rogue: Shaku, the Collector Swashburglar Priest: Lightbomb Vol'jin Warlock: Imp Gang Boss Renounce Darkness Warrior: Varian Wrynn Bloodhoof Brave Neutral: N'Zoth, the Corruptor Sylvanas Windrunner Ragnaros the Firelord The Curator Emperor Thaurissan 1,000 Win Portrait Rewards

      The time has come for dedicated Hearthstone players to flex their Hero mastery! We’re introducing new portraits earned by achieving 1,000 Ranked or Arena wins with each class. Wins earned before this update goes live will retroactively count towards these totals.

      Blizzard today announced a new event coming to the game on October 8. It's called Doom in the Tomb. Check out what's in store for Hearthstone this month!
      UPDATE
      Placeholder for tweet 1180177096972222464 Blizzard (Source)
      Legends have told of dangers lurking within the Haunted Temple of Uldum and the grand ancient treasures they conceal. Of course, “treasure” was all anyone had to mention to get Reno and Rafaam on board, and now their sights are set on acquiring the temple’s powerful artifacts for their own campaigns!
      It won’t be an easy task, though. While our Heroes and Villains battle to push deeper through the Haunted Temple, the Headless Horseman has resorted to a nefarious contingency and opened a sealed sarcophagus full of WILD terrors. Now it will be up to you to aid the conquests of good, or E.V.I.L, in a race to uncover the tomb’s precious secrets and escape the doom in the tomb!

      Step into the Haunted Tomb
      The spooky spelunking adventures begin at 10:00 AM PT on October 8 and end at 9:00 AM PT on October 30 – three weeks packed full of new activities to participate in:

      Unique Tavern Brawls

      Treasures from the Tomb!

      23 cards from across Hearthstone history have been unsealed from Wild and unleashed by the Headless Horseman!

To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get straight into the action.

      Today we get a look at some of the smaller stuff coming up in Hearthstone's future, including new events like dual-class arenas, 23 old cards returning to standard (Ragnaros and N'zoth were mentioned), new class portraits for 1000 wins, and plenty of quality of life improvements!
      Behind the Doors (source)
      While we’re constantly recruiting lackeys, tinkering with experimental tech, and delving into dusty tombs to bring you new Hearthstone expansions and Adventures, we’re also hard at work on some awesome, albeit less flashy, new stuff. In this blog we’ll shine a light on some of the smaller, but still exciting new features, events, and changes coming to Hearthstone in the near future.

       
      Adding More Events

      After the overwhelmingly positive response to the recent Fire Fest-E.V.I.L. event, we’re looking for more opportunities to introduce even more large-scale in-game events with rewards, themed Tavern Brawls, and changes that could temporarily (or permanently!) create fun new Hearthstone experiences for players.
      We’re starting off with a new event in just a couple weeks featuring Dungeon Run-inspired Tavern Brawls, dual-class Arenas, Legendary quest rewards, and some meta-shifting changes outlined in the “Shaking up Standard Play” section below.
      We’ll have more to share on this sensationally spooky event on October 4, but in the meantime . . . try not to lose your head!
       

      Shaking up Standard Play

      Now that the Saviors of Uldum Standard ladder experience has solidified, we think it’s a great time to throw a wrench or two (or twenty-three) in the gears. We’re going to be pulling some of the most popular and game-changing cards from across Hearthstone history, including
      Ragnaros the Firelord and N'Zoth, the Corruptor, out of Wild and dropping them back into Standard for a limited time. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get them into the action.
      We’ll be sharing more details (including the full list of 23 cards) in a blog update on October 4. Stay tuned!

      1,000 Win Class Portraits
      Looking ahead, we want to continue celebrating personal successes and milestones for all you dedicated Hearthstone players. Our next major update will introduce some really cool new portraits that you can earn by earning 1,000 wins with each class. Wins earned before this update goes live will retroactively count towards these totals. Take a look at a couple of examples below and start stacking up those wins!



      Quality of Life Improvements
       
      Alternate Search Terms
      We want it to be easier to quickly find the cards you’re looking for while deckbuilding, so we’re adding alternate search terms for some hard-to-type cards. We’ll be adding common misspellings and simplified versions of leetspeak card names (found on some Mech minions). For example, searching “snip” or “snap” will now show you SN1P-SN4P. While this feature will only be enabled for a few commonly misspelled cards at first, we’ll be able to add even more alternate search terms as needed.
      This feature will also support languages other than English. For example, SN1P-SN4P in Latin American Spanish is “CL1C-CL4C”, so searching “clic” would return the expected results. Quest Changes
      While not included in our next major update, here’s a preview of some of the changes we’re making to quests a little further down the line.
      We’re cutting some of the less popular daily quests and tuning down some of their requirements to make them quicker and easier to complete. We’ll also be adding some new quests to the pool to mix things up! We split most daily quests into two buckets: Easy (50g) and Slightly More Difficult (60g). Rerolling a Slightly More Difficult (60g) quest (like Play 10 Beasts) always gives you an Easy (50g) quest, so players can be guaranteed to get an Easy quest every day if they want. We love  Murlocs and Pirates as much as anyone, but it should be your choice if you decide to complete their quests.
      We’re excited to be bringing these new features, events, and other changes to Hearthstone soon. Please let us know what you think on social media or the official Hearthstone forums. Until then, we’ll see you in the Tavern!
