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

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.

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?

Cabal Shadow Priest should be your priority. Harrison Jones is only a tech card, and if warriors become less popular, he will lose his value.

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.

      Card reveal for Knights of the Frozen Throne continues with Blood Razor, a neutral Legendary and Prince Taldaram.
      If you missed previous reveals or need information about the latest Hearthstone expansion, you can find them in our Knights of the Frozen Throne hub page.
      Warrior's Blood Razor
      The new Warrior card has been revealed via The Legend of Slag. The card makes King Mosh good and battlecry & deathrattle effects make it a flexible choice for many Warrior cards.

      Prince Taldaram
      This is a new neutral Legendary card, revealed exclusively on Hearthpwn. Possible synergies are Malygos, Leeroy Jenkins or Prophet Velen.

      Blood-Queen Lanathel is a new legendary Warlock card that was just revealed via PCGamesN.
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out here.
      Warlock's Blood-Queen Lana'thel
      The new Legendary Warlock card synergizes with Cruel Dinomancer and cards like Doomguard, Soulfire up to Malchezaar's Imp & Silverware Golem. It doesn't even have Charge and due to ist high mana cost it cannot be deployed early.

      Two more cards from Knights of the Frozen expansion were revealed and Blizzard communicated why there was just a single card reveal before that. The cards are Ice Breaker and Plague Scientist.
      Three card reveals were scheduled for today and the reveal for the second and third card was delayed and the reason is that those reveals were all with partners that couldn't make it happen today due to various reasons.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We originally had a few more card reveals for today, but the card reveals were all with partners and they unfortunately couldn't happen today due to a variety of issues. But good news! There will be two more card reveals tonight, so please look forward to them. There will also be more card reveals happening every day this week! The first card that was revealed is the Ticking Abomination and here are the next two:
      Shaman's Ice Breaker
      Ice Breaker will synergize well with Frost Shock and we'll have to see Freeze effects of other cards first to determine its usefulness and full potential. Ice Breaker will be good for minion removal combined with Glacial Shard. For now, the card looks better than Shatter.

      Picture is a courtesy of Hearthpwn
      Rogue's Plague Scientist
      Provides Rogues with much needed board clear (hard removal). Synergizes well with Tentacle of N'Zoth, Wild Pyromancer. On the other hand for Constructed, it competes with Vilespine Slayer and SI:7 Agent that both seem to be better choices.

      The first card since the initial annoucement for Knights of the Frozen Throne has been revealed by C4mlann earlier this morning.
      Let's take a look at the first KotFT card officially revealed by C4mlann.

       
      Blizzard kicks off the reveal with a card that seems unplayable in all currently popular decks, and subpar in arena. Although some players have suggested silence priest as a potential target, Ticking Abomination is actually detrimental to play without a form of silence in hand, unlike other popular silence targets. The caveat here is that since this is one the first card revealed, we don't actually know what's in store. Might there be a way to transfer Deathrattle effects to enemy minions? Will KotFT control decks play no minion before turn 5? One potential use for this one might lie in "forcing" your opponent to trigger your own Deathrattle effects with a high value card, but we'll have to wait and see. We might even see something that gives Deathrattle effects Lifesteal, the expansion's new mechanic, for some minion-based healing.
      For more information, please check out our guide to the new Hearthstone expansion.
