Very nice and versatile deck. Still, I find myself overrun by aggressive decks more often than I would like.

Really strong control deck, having a nice win rate. I love all nzoth decks and nzoth is really a strong win condition. Id love to see a cthun priest deck that works like the cthun ramp druid deck. Are you gonna test a cthun deck to see if it works and will u put the deck list soon if it does??? Thanks sottle... :)

Tried it for a while. Getting blown away all the time its too depending on 1-2 cards to deal with aggrodecks. It works fine against many control decks but lacks taunts to slow down rush decks like warlock.

Could this deck still work without the LoE cards? What would be the replacements for them? Other than EE which you already stated could be switched with Holy Nova.

As you said Excavated Evil can be replaced with Holy Nova, but Museum Curator is a very versatile card for this deck that is hard to replace. Harvest Golem maybe??

I would add an entomb and remove acolyte of pain; entomb is super valuable against the increased number of mid hunters - entombing the high mane shuts down half their win conditions, leaving them with Call of the Wild. 

The second entomb is also excellent against N'zoth decks, stealing either their death rattles or N'zoth itself.

I replaced the two shades with Infested Taurens, and two of the more expensive cards with Moat Lurkers and it seems to work better. You really do have to play off the board for the first 3 or 4 turns on order to get this deck to work.

Which two cards did you replace with Moat Lurkers? Just for others that might be struggling.

I posted that last on my phone so I was a bit lazy about looking it up.

 

I dropped the two Cabal Shadow Priests for the Moat Lurkers. I also dropped one of the Darkshire Alchemists for a Holy Nova, to combat zoo and totems even more.

Thanks for coming back and updating that! Seem like decent replacements, hopefully someone can make use of this.

      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!
