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.

      A callback to Annoy-o-Tron, this new Mech card could be a serious player in the meta.
       
      Episode 2 of "Enter Boom Labs" has revealed another new Magnetic card from The Boomsday Project, called Annoy-o-Module:
       

       
      A callback to Annoy-o-Tron, this guy gains Magnetic and 1/2 worth of stats for just 2 Mana! The stats and keywords this card instantly adds to another Mech seem quite strong when you compare it to Blessing of Kings, which adds 2 more Attack to a minion but does not add Divine Shield and Taunt. This card isn't awful when played on it's own, and it plays well in a deck with Corpsetaker. Annoy-o-Module checks enough for boxes for me, and I full expect it to see play in the upcoming meta.
      Episode 2 of "Enter Boom Labs" is short but sweet, and you can watch the full video right here:
       
       
      Do you think Annoy-o-Module impact the game as much as Annoy-o-Tron did? Let us know in the comment section, and be sure to check out our Boomsday Hub for more spoilers from the upcoming expansion.

      Use Mini-Rag to destroy enemy minions and level up your"Wow!" emote in this week's Tavern Brawl.
       
      In celebration of The Midsummer Fire Festival, this week's Tavern Brawl is all about Ragnaros, Lightlord. Well, Mini-Rag to be more specific:
       

       
      A 2/3 Ragnaros with Immune will start the game on one side of the board. At the end of each turn, Mini-Rag will deal 1 damage to a random target on the other side of the board for each Attack he has, then swap to the other side of the board. Each time he kills an enemy minion he will gain 1 Attack, growing in power as the game progresses.
       

       
      Due to the sudden pressure that Mini-Rag applies to both players, I highly recommend playing an Aggro deck. I used Odd Rogue in my first game to take down an Odd Hunter. You could also play an anti-aggro deck to try and counter all the aggro decks running around, but be sure to play some self-healing such as Branching Paths or Healing Rain.
       

       
      The Tavern Brawl will track how many minion kills that Mini-Rag racks up. After 8, 30, and 60 Minion kills, you will level up the fireworks in your "Wow!" emote. This is a returning Tavern Brawl from last year's festival, and your running total of Mini-Rag kills from last year's festival carries over to this year. Happy hunting!
