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.

      Dave Kosak introduces us to the Monster Hunt, which will be available in a week.
      The Lead Mission Designer was joined by two of his associates to discuss the newest PvE mode, which will come along with The Witchwood. Paul Nguyen talked about the four heroes. Tess Greymane has a Hero Power that lets her Discover any class card that has been played in a game (by both players) and add it to your hand.
      Darius Crowley has an indestructible cannon minion that can be activated via Darius' Hero Power and fire at the minions across it. Positioning will matter, as you can kill two enemy minions at once and the Hero Power will refresh each time you kill a minion with your cannon. There weren't any details on Houndmaster Shaw or Toki, Time-Tinker, but it was hinted that the former hero will have something to do with Rush (just like its card counterpart).
      Giovanni Scarpati discussed bosses and treasures. The Monster Hunt will feature over 45 unique boss encounters. As Ben Brode had revealed in an earlier interview, each hero will have its own final boss, called "nemesis fight". For Crowley it's Lord Godfrey, for Shaw it's Glinda Crowskin and for Toki it's her own future self! When you clear the Monster Hunt with all four heroes (and win four packs), you get to face Hagatha as the last boss. Ultimately, as far as the treasures are concerned, there are a few returning ones from the Dungeon Run, but most are new. There are also hero exclusive treasures, as well as unique treasures "dropping" from rare boss encounters.
      You should definitely watch the video to get a glimpse of all the new stuff coming with the Monster Hunt. And don't forget: it's release date is April 26 at 10:00 am PDT!
      Daxxarri
      Start stocking up on vials of holy water and cannonballs, because The Witchwood’s free, single-player missions, the Monster Hunt, goes live on April 26 at 10:00 a.m. PDT!
      Join Lead Mission Designer Dave Kosak, along with Mission Designers Paul Nguyen and Giovanni Scarpati, for a Hearthside Chat that will equip you with everything you need to know for a successful Monster Hunt!
      Ready for Action
      If you played the Dungeon Run in Kobolds & Catacombs, the Monster Hunt will be eerily familiar—but much is different! Rather than choosing one of Hearthstone’s nine classes, you’ll take on the role of one of four veteran monster hunters, each with a special ability that you’ll need to make the most of if you hope to survive the hunt.
      Your hunter will venture deep into the Witchwood on Hagatha’s trail, defeating a series of monstrous bosses who dare to cross your path. With each victory, you’ll build a stronger and stronger deck with the items you find. You may encounter some trusty old equipment out in the forest, but much of what you’ll find will be entirely new, including treasures unique to certain foes. Each monster hunter has their own favorite tricks—a special hero power or ability that you’ll need to master if you hope to survive the hunt. Each hunter also carries a grudge against a heinous nemesis in the woods: a unique boss that only they can track down to fight.

      You’ll want to go on a Monster Hunt with every hunter, because each offers a quest that will earn you a Witchwood card pack. And if you’ve got the mettle to complete the Monster Hunt with all four hunters, you’ll finally have a chance to face off with the real witch in the woods: Hagatha! If you can free the wood from Hagatha’s curse, you’ll earn the gratitude of Gilneas and the Monster Hunter card back!

      We hope you enjoyed learning more of what lurks ahead in Monster Hunt! We’re eager to hear your tales of The Witchwood on social media using the #Witchwood hashtag. Learn more about The Witchwood at TheWitchwood.com!
      We’ll see you on the hunt!
