Is Harrison replacable with Acidic Swamp Ooze?

Yes, but the quality of the deck will be lower, since you get a smaller body and won't have the draw.

Is one Cabal Shadow Priest enough, since I only got 1? And if so, with what would I be able to replace it with?

And is justicar 100% necessary? Don't really want to craft a card that goes out of standard next year.

Justicar is one of the most versatile legendaries right now, definitely worth crafting. I might not craft it if it was going out of standard in a month or two, but 12?  Absolutely.

is there any card that replaces Harrison Jones? How about an Azure Drake?

 

Acidic Swamp Ooze

Yes, one is enough, though try to save dust for a second copy of her. In the meantime, try Azure Drake.

What would be good replacements for sylvanas and justicar?

Ysera against control or Shifting Shade against aggro, and second Curator. You could also try Azure Drake, but that can be risky with Excavated Evil.

How do i play against zoo with this deck?

You can mulligan for a Circle of Healing and Auchenai Soulpriest and use the combo on turn 4 to clear the board. If you don't have both of those, try to stay alive until turn 5, then use Excavated Evil. Another alternative is to add a Shadow Madness into your deck.

I play Zoo a lot and my biggest fear when playing against this priest deck is Turn 3 Wild Pyromancer + The Coin + Power Word: Shield. Wild Pyromancer is super effective against Zoo.

Why the Acolyte of Pain? Wouldn't another Museum Curator be better?

Allows you to dig more for Golden Monkey and allows you to find more combo parts.

Having Elise instead of Nzoth as your finishing gameplan fascilates the need for simple card advantage over possible deathrattle value. Acolyte of Pain has incredible synergies with Priest in general and Wild Pyromancer in particular. Especially since you eschew Northshire Cleric as a draw engine, he is a very important part of the deck. Surprised to see only one copy, actually.

Harrison Jones is a tech card and can be replaced by Acidic Swamp Ooze. Cabal Shadow Priest is very strong, but is priest only, and you should craft her only if our main class is priest. Sylvanas Windrunner is currently very popular and strong, and can be used in variety of decks for each class. Craft her if you plan to play multiple classes. So, craft Sylvanas Windrunner or Cabal Shadow Priest, add Acidic Swamp Ooze and a second Museum Curator.

Thanks. İ'll craft Sylvanas after i try to craft Cabal Shadow Priest. How can i get craft dust and is Rafaam good in this deck? And why Museum Curator? İts not a deathrattle deck. And is injured blade master good and last question why acolyte of pain? And can i replace acolyte of pain by doomsayer and another cabal by ressurect?

You get dust by disenchanting (preferably useless) cards.
Arch-Thief Rafaam isn't that good in the deck as it runs Elise Starseeker as the main win condition.
You don't need deathrattle synergy to gain advantage of the deathrattle (that's why this deck runs Sylvanas Windrunner).
Yes, when you combo him with Flash Heal or Circle of Healing, you gain massive advantage by having turn on 3 or 4 a 4/7.
Acolyte of Pain has synergy with Power Word: Shield, possibly Auchenai Soulpriest, generally with your hero power, and mainly with Wild Pyromancer.
Yes, you can replace Acolyte of Pain by Doomsayer if you face a lot of aggro. I do not recommend swapping Resurrect and Cabal Shadow Priest as you would get lower value. You run too many small minions, and if you want to include Doomsayer, Resurrect can even lose you the game.

Thank you so much. İ'll replace Harrison Jones by Swamp Ooze and Cabal by Doomsayers. İ have last question. Which one more important? Cabal or Harrison Jones. Which one should i craft first?

This is just too weak. 30% winrate after 30 games

Priest as whole is very weak in current meta, and it will stay this way for some time because Karazhan showed no good (class) cards for priest. Playing priest in standard is simply ill-advised.

      Various bosses from The Witchwood's Monster Hunt are ready to battle it out in this week's brand new Tavern Brawl.
      This is the first special Tavern Brawl that we will see during this year's Hallow's End.
      You just queue up and you get assigned a random boss from the Monster Hunt. Some of these bosses include:
      Azalina Soulthief (Hero Power: 2 mana - Summon three 1/1 Wisps) Blood Witch Greta (Passive Hero Power: Spells cost Health instead of Mana) Brushwood Centurion (Hero Power: 3 mana - All minions attack random enemy minions) Chupacabran (Hero Power: 1 mana - Give a friendly minion +1/+1 and Lifesteal) Plaguemaster Rancel (Hero Power: 2 mana - Deal 2 damage to a minion. If it survives, give it Poisonous) Shudderwock (Passive Hero Power - All Battlecries trigger twice) Winslow Tobtock (Hero Power: 2 mana - Each player shuffles their hand into their decks and draws that many cards) Wharrgarbl (Hero Power: 2 mana - Draw 3 Murlocs from your deck) Experiment 3C (Hero Power: 1 mana - Destroy a friendly minion and draw 3 cards) It's not sure how many bosses there are available, but they certainly have similar decks as during the PvE adventure. It might be worth checking our Monster Hunt guide to refresh your memory on some of their abilities or just experience them in action!

      Hallow's End is going to last from October 17 until October 31.
      As we've already discussed, you can log in to enjoy the spooky festivities and receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron.
      You will also get a free Arena entry ticket in order to test your mettle in the Dual Class Arena. Pick a Hero, choose the Hero Power of a second Hero and try to make the perfect mix with the combined might of both Heroes' class cards.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end: Monster Smash (October 17-22) and The Headless Horseman Rides Again (October 24 - 29)!
      Lastly, for a limited time you can purchase the new Paladin hero, Sir Annoy-o, as a Bundle along with 20 Witchwood packs at the price of $19.99 or 19.99 EUR. This mighty new hero even has his own backstory which you can read here.
      Later today, we should also see the balance changes go live.
    • By Zadina
      The update will take effect on October 18.
      Well, the balance changes were smaller than expected as only three cards were affected this time.
      As expected, Giggling Inventor was affected as it now costs 7 mana, up from 5. The team actually considered it too powerful for 6 mana, which raises the question why it was 5 mana in the first place. Anyway, it still remains an odd card if this is still relevant.

      Now, a big and unexpected change was Mana Wyrm being raised to 2 mana. The iconic Classic minion has undergone the Tunnel Trogg treatment and after 4+ years of power, it is ready to retire.

      And a Wild change to alleviate the devastating Druid combo: Aviana will now cost 10 mana. This means she can't be played at the same turn as Kun the Forgotten King and Juicy Psychmelon won't be able to draw both Kun the Forgotten King and Aviana with it.

      The update will go live on October 18th with the weekly reset. What do you guys think about the changes?

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!
