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.

      Blizzard's Lead Mission Designer, Dave Kosak, has released a video discussing how Missions will work in Knights of the Frozen Throne.
      Missions are the replacement for Adventures, which everyone will be able to attempt when the new set is released. The idea behind them is to be able to explain the lore behind the cards, without forcing people to do the content who are not interested in it.
      There is a lot of interesting information in the video, but the key takeaway is that there will be an alternate Paladin Hero, Arthas, awarded to anyone who can defeat the Lich King with all nine classes.
      At the end of the video, three more cards are revealed from the upcoming expansion:

      Bolvar is an interesting card in that it will be a 3/7 after it loses its own Divine Shield. This means that it will need to get very little value from its ability in order to be very large indeed. It does feel like a build-around card however, and it might be that Divine Shield Paladin is just not as powerful as current archetypes. There are already plenty of ways to build that style of deck, and none are seeing regular play. I am not sure that Bolvar, Fireblood improves the Divine Shield archetype enough to force it to the forefront.

      Light's Sorrow has some of the same issues that Bolvar has, although it needs to get very few activations over the course of its lifetime to be a playable weapon. I expect this to be tested heavily in the first few days of the new meta.

      Corpsetaker seems like a fun card. It should be easy enough to gain most of the keywords, which will make it a very difficult card to deal with. It should be noted that the keywords are only gained if those words are on the cards remaining in the deck. Depending on how easy it turns out to be to get every keyword onto the card, this could be a reasonable card in slower decks where the Taunt and Lifesteal are relevant.

      The twenty-third and twenty-fourth cards have been revealed. Both are Epic minions, one for Hunter and one for Druid.
      At seven Mana, Stitches Archer, or Abominable Bowman Archer has to compete with Volcanosaur for the slot. It also seems that Savannah Highmane does the same thing more reliably.

      (Source: Hearthpwn)
      That being said, there are plenty of Deathrattle options available for N'Zoth, the Corruptor to bring back in Hunter now, and if a slow enough deck can be made to work, this would be a great fit in such a deck.
      Fatespinner
      Fatespinner introduces a new mechanic, which should add an element of intrigue to the game. The lack of disguised information has been a complaint of many players since the dawn of Hearthstone. Fatespinner takes a first step into that world, and if successful as a mechanic, it should add a new layer of complexity and bluff to the game.

      As for the card itself, it has poor stats for its Mana cost, and seems to not have the greatest of effects. However, this is Druid we are talking about, and Druid having the ability to deal 3 damage to all minions, albeit slowly, should not be treated lightly. Sherazin, Corpse Flower was underrated by reviewers in the previous set, and is somewhat similar in that it was hard to assess how much value would be gained from its ability. I feel that this card might see play for the first Deathrattle ability, but more importantly, the very existence of a new secret mechanic should be good for the game as the design team explore it further.

      Professor Putricide has been revealed by DDaHyoNi.
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out on our Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion hub.
      Bring it On!

      This card is quite the surprise, and the second in the set seemingly designed to punish spell-heavy/combo decks. Whether this is viable depends entirely on the meta at hand, of course, but there is intricate synergy at play here between Dirty Rat and Shield Slam; pull a minion out, thus avoiding the downside of reducing its cost, then slam it right in for a mighty 10 damage. Could it also be used to bait board swarms for an impending Brawl? I like it.
      Coldwraith

      Considering mages are very lacking in the 3-drop department, we may be looking at a new mage staple here, especially considering how popular Frostbolt and Primordial Glyph currently are. The revealed mage death knight card also seems to promote the use of Water Elemental, furthering your ability to get value out of the Freeze-related effect. Might Freeze mages even consider running this? Probably, since their game plan is all about... well, Freezing and drawing. Pretty cool card, if I may.

      Naiman_hs just revealed Voodoo Hexxer.
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out on our Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion hub.
      Voodoo Hexxer

      Water Elemental's big sister, Voodoo Hexxer is very likely to find a place in any control-oriented shaman deck. Along the new weapon, it seems like the shaman class is being pushed towards Freezing. Stat-wise, Voodoo Hexxer is not all that great for cost, but it fulfills its purpose: it's hard to remove, it'll stall decks that rely on swarming, and even works against weapons. In control matchups, Voodoo Hexxer becomes a form of pseudo removal, especially when coupled with the aforementioned weapon.

      Bearshark and Hadronox were just revealed!
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out on our Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion hub.
      Bearshark

      Houndmaster should probably be renamed to Bearsharkmaster because it curves out just perfectly into an Elusive minion that's going to be difficult to remove. Since hunters don't use spells to buff their own minions, Elusive isn't actually going to be a downside. This seems like it'll make for a solid addition to any hunter deck.
      Hadronox

      The current rendition of Ramp druid runs 5 to 6 Taunt minions, but plays very greedy with cutting long-time staples of the class such as Druid of the Claw. Could this fit the deck? I don't know; Hadronox requires you to have drawn your few Taunters and played them, something Ramp doesn't always get to do by nature. Ramping this minion is actually pretty bad because its Deathrattle simply won't trigger then. Let's see if another Taunt minion ends up being printed for druid; otherwise, I can't say this card will be popular.
