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?

      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      We kicked off this new series by analyzing a tricky situation which had only one optimal line of play. In episode two we'll take a look at a very different kind of situation, one where there might not be a perfect move at all.
      Please let us know in the comments what you would have done in this situation! One of the primary goals of this series is to foster improvement at Hearthstone by generating discussions. We would also love to hear your feedback on the video itself, as the series is still very new and has plenty room to improve on its format.

      In the latest Hearthstone update, Blizzard made adjustments to several cards. The patch is now live now on desktop and it should become available on mobile devices in the coming hours.
      Philosophy and reasons behind these changes can be found here.

      A new Brawl has landed in the Tavern.
      Just like with the previous expansions, it's time to try out the deck recipes of Knights of the Frozen Throne in this week's Tavern Brawl. The archetypes for each deck recipe are the following:
      Druid: I guess the best name for this deck is Midrange Druid. It has Ultimate Infestation and Spreading Plague, so... PROFIT?! Deathrattle Hunter Elemental Mage Divine Shield Paladin Control Priest (you've probably seen variations of it in ladder) Jade Deathrattle Rogue Freeze Shaman Zoolock Control Warrior with Enrage minions This is a good opportunity to try out cards that you don't own. Good luck and have fun!

      The balance patch is arriving in the beginning of the next week.
      The wait is over! The anticipated card balance changes will arrive on September 18th and hopefully freshen up the meta a little bit. As the case always is with balance patches, for the next two weeks if you disenchant Spreading Plague and/or Murloc Warleader, you will get their full value in Arcane Dust.
      Daxxarri
      In the recent Upcoming Balance Changes – Update 9.1 blog, we discussed the details and philosophy behind balance updates that are coming to several Hearthstone cards:
       
      Innervate - Now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2) Fiery War Axe - Now costs 3 mana. (Up from 2) Hex - Now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3) Murloc Warleader - Now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health) Spreading Plague - Now costs 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      This patch is currently targeted for September 18th PDT. Please note that updates for mobile devices may take a few additional hours to propagate.

      Once these card changes are live, players will be able to disenchant cards that are not Basic (Murloc Warleader and Spreading Plague) for their full Arcane Dust value for two weeks. Basic cards cannot be disenchanted and will not be available for an Arcane Dust refund. (source)
