Legendary Priest C'Thun Control Standard

15 posts in this topic

I've been running a similar deck for the last few weeks, and its working beautifully. I dont use the doomcallers, and a few other minor tweaks. You usually get a very smooth mana curve, with a solid minion available almost every turn, and good responses for whatever they may play.

Any replacements for Vek'lor?

Twin Emperor Vek'lor is a reason why C'thun decks are good. He is arguably the second most powerful card in the deck, and it might not even be worth it to play the deck without him. The swaps would be Doomcaller against control, Sen'jin Shieldmasta against aggro, Shadow Word: Death or Entomb against midrangey decks.

I've got to say i didn't find much use out of the Doomsayer's but perhaps i'm not coming up against enough excessively spammy decks. Surprisingly only had a couple of Zoo matchups to test it in. All in all this is working fairly well. Subbed the Doomsayers out for Museum curators. Especially with the hand synergy they can be utilised with Brann Bronzebeard. Whilst there's better combo's to use him with. Dropping a curator the next turn if you can get away with it is pretty strong too.

this deck gets torn apart by deathrattle decks

The main issue when playing against deathrattle decks is timing and playing around Sylvanas Windrunner. If you face a lot of N'Zoth decks, consider adding a second Entomb in place of Shadow Word: PainShadow Word: Death or Doomsayer, depending on your other matchups.

Worth removing Cabal for Entomb?

Probably worth removing Cabal for almost anything, there's a serious lack of good targets for it in the present meta.

Exactly what I was thinking.

@Blainie If you don't encounter enough decks that have good targets for Cabal Shadow Priest, like dragon warrior, then sure. In the end it's just a tech card.

I'm not derailing I swear!

Are you saying it is good vs. DW or bad? I can't think of any card that you can grab from Dragon Warrior, since they all get buffed above 2

I meant it is a very bad deck to encounter with 2 Cabal Shadow Priests. The only cards you can steal are SlimeFrothing Berserker (sometimes) and Sir Finley Mrrgglton, which is not enough, as only Frothing Berserker has extra value. Additionally, the pressure from dragon warrior is often so high (and the power of priests is so low) that you need to use hero power every turn to stay alive, which makes Cabal Shadow Priest a low value card that is often too slow.
It's fine to run Cabal Shadow Priest against sSlower decks that have low amount of targets, like Control Warrior, since you are not under constant pressure and you often get extra value, such as card draw from Acolyte of Pain or armor from Armorsmith.

Except that they don't run Armorsmith nowadays. For a C'Thun deck it's probably good to steal Acolyte of Pain, if it were a pure Control deck that might be more sketchy (against Control Warrior anyway). Brann Bronzebeard has all but disappeared from the meta, the only really high-value target nowadays is Flamewaker. I suppose Kindly Grandmother is decent too. Taking something low-impact like a Totem or Argent Squire, even an Argent Horserider (if you can find one that still has Divine Shield) just seems too slow nowadays. Well, the entire Priest class seems too slow, so, whatever.

      Blizzard have announced that the next update will contain big changes to the way Arena works.
      The newly announced changes will come into force at the same time as the nerfs to Small-Time Buccaneer and Spirit Claws, which we discussed previously.
      The most important change will be that Arena will change from Wild format to Standard. This will help to keep Arena feeling fresh, as well as make sure that card synergies can be drafted more easily.
      Changes have also been made to the distribution of cards. Common and Basic cards will show up less often, and the frequency of spells and class cards being offered has been raised. The full discussion can be found in the announcement link above, but the main reasoning is to allow players to have more opportunities to outdraft and outplay their opponents, rather than just playing the game on curve.
      This philosophy will have some implications in Standard too. If Blizzard are actively trying to reduce the impact of playing on curve in Arena, this could mean that they will carry over the same thoughts into constructed play. I feel that moving away from the style, unaffectionately known as Curvestone, would be good for the game. The changes will almost certainly be welcomed in the Arena community, and it is good to see Blizzard making them now, rather than waiting for the next set to launch.

      Im making a telegram bot that can send you new decks and news from https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone.
      It already can send some decks and filter them by class and deck format.
      Im going to open bot for all users in next few weeks. 
      Any suggestions?
