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.

      Dave Kosak is here with a new Hearthside Chat to talk about Dungeon Runs. He also showcased a new legendary card from the new expansion!
      We've already talked about Dungeon Runs, one of the new features that Kobolds & Catacombs will bring. Lead Mission Designer Dave Kosak explains in this latest Hearthside Chat the design process behind Dungeon Runs.
      Dave presented some unique elements only present in Dungeon Runs. For example, there is a card you can pick called Cloak of Invisibility, which has a Passive effect of giving your minions permanent Stealth.
      He also gave some insight on the encounters. Some Dungeon Runs can have thematic encounters, like there's a band of Troggs or Trolls you will have to beat. As far as the Trolls are concerned, Battlecrier Jin'zo has a passive effect that is similar to Brann Bronzebeard, which you and him can both benefit from! Similarly, Spiritspeaker Azun's passive works like Baron Rivendare for both parties, while Voodoomaster Vex combines both of these passive effects!
      The narrator, that will be guiding you through your Dungeon Run, is King Togwaggle - the king of the Kobolds himself! He is also going to be an actual card available in the next expansion:

      Images from Hearthpwn
      Here's the official blog post with everything you need to know about Dungeon Runs:
      Blizzard Entertainment
      What’s a Dungeon Run?
      Dungeon Run is a new insanely fun, single-player “rogue-like” mode where you’ll face deadly encounters and collect incredible Treasures to build a deck worthy of a hero!
      When your Dungeon Run starts, you’ll choose a Hero and receive a starting deck consisting of 10 cards. You’ll use it to overcome eight encounters of increasing difficulty (chosen randomly from a huge pool of 48 possible encounters!) to clear the run.

      That initial deck might be enough to help you squeak by your first opponent, but you’ll need to get stronger if you hope to clear the whole run. Each time you defeat a Dungeon Run encounter, you’ll be given an opportunity to “level up” your Dungeon Run deck with themed sets of three cards appropriate to your class. Occasionally, you’ll also be able to pick from a selection of three incredibly powerful Treasure cards—non-collectible cards and abilities made just for this mode that are too blatantly overpowered to see normal play.
      You’ll need all that power—as well as your wits—because these encounters can be fiendishly difficult. Victory is not assured, and each encounter has its own unique perils. If one of them gets the better of you, defeat is permanent, so you’ll have to start a different run with a whole new deck!
      If you manage to complete a full Dungeon Run with each of the nine Classes—no mean feat!—you’ll add the Candle King card back to your collection.

      In this article, we are covering two new cards: Temporus, a Priest legendary minion, and Benevolent Djinn, a Paladin common minion.
      Benevolent Djinn was revealed earlier today by Thai player Anothersayoran1. The name of the card was officially confirmed by Puffin.

      Image by Hearthpwn.
      It is difficult to judge this card without seeing it in action. It’s comparable to Friendly Bartender: while the Djinn heals for more, its 2 attack value is a bit mediocre for a 3-mana minion. Shaman’s Hot Spring Guardian is slightly better, since it has Taunt and a targeted heal effect. Then again, Djinn also acts like a Taunt, in the sense that your opponent probably has to spend early resources to remove its powerful effect. Both cards, though, are beaten by Tar Creeper.
      This make the Djinn a great anti-aggro tool. Additionally, it synergises well with Blackguard and its Elemental tribe means that maybe we’ll get to see an Elemental Paladin. This is definitely a powerful Arena card. But can it secure a spot in constructed mode? It looks difficult, since Paladin already has some great 3-mana minions.

      This intriguing minion was revealed by Eurogamer. Its sister site, Metabomb, sat down with Peter Whalen and Ben Thompson to talk about this card. Both developers think that Temporus can be run in either the classic OTK Priest (Divine Spirit + Inner Fire) or in two new versions of Dragon Priest: a more midrange one and an OTK one with Malygos. 
      It would be interesting to see what it's interaction is going to be with Brann Bronzebeard. Temporus is a "high risk, high reward" card and, even if you don't like it or it turns out to be bad, you'd still have to commend its design.

      The 2016 Hearthstone World Champion revealed this rare Druid card.
      Grizzled Guardian was unveiled on Pavel's YouTube channel. It's a rare Druid Beast, that costs 8 mana and has 3 attack and 5 health. It has Taunt and Deathrattle: "Recruit 2 minions that cost (4) or less". Pavel's video is in Russian, but you can enable accurate English subtitles to see what the World Champion has to say about that card.
      After watching Pavel's video, I am convinced that Grizzled Guardian isn't as bad as it looks at first sight. Sure, its stats are garbage, but you should also factor in the stats of the minions it pulls from your deck when it dies. Still, it's hard to see it fit into the current meta. Perhaps, it can see play when the Year of the Kraken sets rotate out of Standard. It also weakens the 8-mana slot for Evolve and similar effect.
      What's your opinion on Grizzled Veteran? As always, all the cards of the new expansion can be found in our Kobolds & Catacombs hub.
      PS: Turns out it's not Hogger 3.0 :(

      The newest Legendary Shaman minion has me shaking in my boots. Is this the card that will put Elemental Shaman over the top?
      Chinese Hearthstone streamer Snowkiss has revealed the Legendary Shaman minion from K&C. This bad boy appears to pack quite the punch - my mind is already racing with potential combos and synergies for Grumble, World Shaker:

      Card image courtesy of Hearthpwn.com
      Elementals have plenty of powerful Battlecry triggers which Grumble could play for a second time. Kalimos, Primal Lord, Servant of Kalimos, Blazecaller, and Jade Spirit immediately come to mind as potent synergies for the shaker of worlds. Grumble could also be used to double down of Jade cards such as Jade Chieftain and Aya Blackpaw, or could even be used to recycle the Battlecry triggers of the old gods. All of this on a 7/7 for 6 mana? Sign me up!
      Is this the card that Elemental Shaman has been waiting for? Let us know what you think about Grumble in the comment section, and check out our Kobolds and Catacombs hub for more information on the upcoming set.
