So this deck just got me from rank 15 to rank 5. I would say this deck is really strong and not too hard. I would recommend for everyone.

I find it extremely depending on the starting hand and on luck (effect of Deathlord, mainly).

 

But sadly that is for most decks in Hearthstone.

Worst deck I've played. Can't get a win at 19. Extremely draw based. If you don't get death lord or chow just quit.

I mean, you're well above 60% to get one of those two cards in your opening hand if you're mulliganing for them. Obviously decks do better when you hit their early game cards.

After playing loads of matches with this deck:

 

- Very depending on starting hand.

- Even with a good starting hand, I get overwhelmed more often than I would like.

- It's kinda rock-paper-scissors. Against some classes it's an almost certain win, against other an almost certain defeat.

- Elise Starseeker looks useless to me. Usually you don't get your legendaries before the very last few turns, and even if you get it, often at the expense of being overwhelmed meanwhile.

Might be true, but I find that Death Lord has an extreme luckfactor. If your opponent manages to kill it right away (most classes can, if they have the right card) and some 7+ minion drops, it's an instant-loss usually.

Is there any replacement for deathlord in these kinds of decks?

 

An early taunt that actually has stats is nice, but its just been bait for hunters mark, power overwhelming etc and it always, always ends up bringing out a challenger/fordring/giant for the opponent

If the opponent is a hunter, he will rarely have a big minion to punish you for playing Deathlord. Same goes for zoo. Additionally, Deathlord is meant for taking the damage, such as from Power Overwhelming.

Challenger is actually something you might even want to take out, because you will "deny" the opponent a few draws and insane synergy. As for Tirion, your run double Entomb and one SW:D, which is enough to deal with Tirion. Same goes for giants. Also, Handlock is a rare sight, and I haven't seen one for the past two weeks.

If you face a high amount of control or slow midrange decks, then you can include a second Shredder and possibly even Dr. Balanced himself.

Yeah Deathlord is brutal sometimes, but it's a necessary evil, it's so powerful when it sticks that it wins you more games than it loses, I can understand the frustration with it sometimes, but you just have to believe me. It's universally agreed upon to be strong in Priest and the stats reflect it, it's a game winning card much more often than it is a losing one.

 

If you don't get the early Deathlord down, you need to try and be a bit more clever with it, hold onto it for a turn or two until the turn before you think you're going to Lightbomb for example, then the extra minion being pulled can work in your favour.

Had fun with this deck, makes a change from classic control priest, easier to play as well.

I have struggled against paladins but I don't have Harrison Jones so perhaps that's why. Great otherwise!

I need replacements for 1 cabal shadow priest, and 2 lightbomb, harrison jones, and justicar trueheart. Idk these cards are just irrelevant to me and like I rarely play priest so..

I've been playing this for a while, and while my winrate isn't the highest (That really is only having to do with my skills as a player) It's been so much FUN! I got my first golden monkey victory and when my hand and deck turned to legendary's, man. That was a great feeling.

I just swapped a museum curator for a crazed alchemist but i havent tried it yet. when those big health monsters attack your taunt monsters, use it with cabal shadow priest to steal them!

remarks?

It can be useful against taunt monster to get them out the way too + you end up having an extra taunt monster?

      Dave Kosak is here in the latest Hearthside Chat video to talk about the lore of Rastakhan's Rumble. He also revealed two Priest cards: the Loa of Death, Bwonsamdi, and his Spirit!
      If you haven't played Battle for Azeroth, the latest WoW expansion, then this video is going to be helpful in understanding the backstory of Rastakhan's Rumble:
      The two Priest cards revealed in the video synergise very well with each other:

      As Peter Whalen and Liv Breeden mentioned in their r/Hearthstone interview, Spirits are meant to be build-around cards and this is pretty apparent with Spirit of the Dead. Apart from the obvious synergy with Bwonsamdi, the Priest Spirit can work wonders in a Clone Priest deck along with Zerek's Cloning Gallery. Spirit of the Dead can also find a spot in other archetypes like Resurrect, Big and Deathrattle Priest. The card itself is quite slow and requires some setting-up, but it looks very versatile.

      Bwonsamdi, the Loa of Death, can be used simiply to draw Spirit of the Dead, then you can kill him while the Spirit is up and shuffle him back to your deck. It's easy to see the Spirit work without Bwonsamdi, but the opposite - Bwonsamdi working without his Spirit - looks like a slim possibility. Given that all Class cards in this expansion are designed to work as a "team", we might see a card (apart from the Spirit) that can make Bwonsamdi more viable. Otherwise, the Hunter Quest never really caught on, so why would it work in a traditionally anti-aggro class like Priest?

      We have a new Tavern Brawl this week and the rules are simple: both players get to have two turns, instead of one.
      This starts from the very beginning of the game, therefore giving a big advantage to Player 1. Don't be surprised if your opponent concedes when he/she finds out that he/she has to go second (or if you have to do it)!
      Doomsayer is a must-have on this Tavern Brawl, since it clears the board immediately. Flappy Bird is also a useful card and Aggro decks are generally favoured. OTK decks also can work great since you have two turns to set up your... one-turn kill. You can also experiment with Open the Waygate and Temporus; both cards work and they give you a third turn!

      The Hearthstone heroes are trying to enjoy Rastakhan's Rumble but a fellow spectator named Belligerent Gnome is annoying Rexxar!
      Wronchi have released the second part of their Rastakan's Rumble series of animations. You remember that in the first part the nine heroes were trying to get into the Gurubashi Arena. Now, we see that Rexxar, Jaina and Anduin are enjoying the games but there's a little fellow that's too loud for Rexxar's taste.
      And here he is:

      No wonder Rexxar is angry since this is definitely a Silverback Patriarch power creep! Although one would expect that Gul'dan would be equally angry, since this is a Vulgar Homunculus with a condition for every class!
      To start the serious discussion on this card, this looks like an anti-aggro tool that can also probably find its place in aggro decks as well. It's hard to see the Battlecry trigger on turn 2 exactly, making this a bit of a slower card. Dragon Priest used to have a similar card in Wyrmrest Agent, which was easier to trigger. Even decks could be a good place for Belligerent Gnome - Even Shaman, in particular, since I don't see Warlocks dropping their beloved Homunculus.
      It's definitely a versatile card with a lot of potential and it seems balanced - for now.
