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?

      We have a new Tavern Brawl this week called "BY THE POWER OF RAGNAROS" (emphasis on the capitals)!
      Remember Emperor Thaurissan? Well just like his effect, the cards in your hand will have their mana cost reduced at the end of your turn during this Brawl.
      Other than that, you have to pick a class and make your own deck. We haven't had a Tavern Brawl like that in a while. OTK decks, mostly variations of Exodia Mage with Malygos, seem to have the upper hand so far.
      Let us know if you have any other suggestions for this Tavern Brawl!

      After Overwatch, Hearthstone is the next Blizzard game to get its animated short series.
      A series of Hearthstone animated shorts has premiered today with "Hearth and Home". The protagonist is Ava, a young girl who is lost in the cold woods, until she discovers the warm Hearthstone tavern. We also finally get to know the name of the Innkeeper, which is Harth Stonebrew.
      Other notable characters are Malto, the wise old Mage; Sarge, an adorable mouse; Fewz and Wick, the Goblin brothers; Lou, the most fabulous Paladin ever; Bertie, a female Gnome; Urk, a tough-looking Orc; and Velaris, an arrogant Blood Elf.
      The short features some top quality animation and is quite reminiscent of Pixar Studios works. Enjoy!

      The Supreme Lich King was defeated earlier today at Gamescom. He was the final boss of Hearthstone's very first Raid!
      After the new Fireside Gathering features were announced, it was time to see them in action! You all know that Gamescom is taking place this week and Blizzard has prepared many reveals and surprises. As far as Hearthstone is concerned, we got to see the new Fireside Brawl, a special Tavern Brawl that is available only during Fireside Gatherings.
      Everyone present in Gamescom had the chance to battle against the 1 million health Supreme Lich King! During this Brawl, you choose a hero and you are given a deck. Your hero starts at 9 mana and 20 health. When your hero dies, you discover a second hero and you are given a new deck and so on. Your total damage to the Lich King is shown at a scoreboard, after you defeat him. Obviously, the goal is for everyone participating in the gathering to work together to defeat him.
      The Brawl seems to scale depending on how many people are present. It also features several Brawl-specific cards and hero powers. You can get a better feel of it by watching this detailed video by Thijs:
      Apparently, the Lich King cannot be destroyed by summoning the 4 Horsemen from Uther of the Ebon Blade's hero power, as Amnesiac and Trump discovered.
      The Supreme Lich King was defeated today, Wednesday the 23rd of August. The participants in this Brawl actually got physical rewards, too, as you can see in this clip with Hafu and Dog (language warning).
      What do you think about this new Fireside Gathering feature?
