Good Priest deck ideas/tips

So I want to pick up priest, but I have no clue which deck is somewhat good in the current meta.

I have seen C'thun priests doing good but I already play a C'thun warrior, so i'm not really liking the idea of playing a 2nd one. 

Control priest is kinda meh -.- imo. Anyone got some tips to create a good priest deck?

Priest naturally plays pretty slowly, so its going to lean toward midrange/control decks. I dont think ive seen any aggro or speed priest decks that worked well, but there's always the Divine Spirit / Inner Fire combo if you want to try it.

Dragon priest is pretty viable right now, I think theres a deck on here for it. 

Shadow priest is a combo that went out of favor for a while, but is coming back with the current meta. It uses combinations of Shadowform, Shadow Madness, Thoughtsteal, Cabal Shadow Priest, Mind Control and Entomb. Maybe Mind Control Tech too if it fits. The basic strategy is to steal your opponents minions and just wear them out. Fun to play if done right, but its definitely SLOW.  I found a lot of matches went to fatigue.

I agree with what Allegro said, and I am going to add 3 decks: midrange priest and OTK/Velen combo priest and N'zoth priest.

Midrange priest has more proactive plays than control, and focuses on seizing the board with a bit more minions and less spells. It has been considered to be better than Control priest for some time. Not sure about current situation though.

OTK/Velen priest focuses on using cheap heals combined with Auchenai, and damage spells, all combined with Velen, Malygos, or both. The deck isn't that good, but it can be used as a fun deck.

N'zoth priest focuses on more proactive plays, especially powerful deathrattle minions. You let them die, you use a lot of removal spells and you play N'zoth when the important deathrattle minions died, creating a win condition. 

As for the best deck in meta, I feel like N'zoth priest is the strongest priest deck for now.

c'thun priest and n'zoth are by far your best option in the current meta and cant add anything more to what postiiv2 has mentioned ..even if you have a c'thun warrior the priest counter part in my opinion is just as good so good luck and ofc you can read the guides posted in the priest section by sottle (really detailed  )  for more insight on the decks available here on icy-veins  and hopefully they will help you make the best choice

      Hello there,

      I am trying to find a character that suits me and 'till now i didn't find it..
      I have a Paladin level 110, a Rogue, DH, Warrior and a Druid. I really enjoyed to play Prot. Paladin but i was overwhelmed with all the knowledge i need to know for raids.I have to say that this is the class that i played the most. I have to say that i usually play in weekends and sometimes in week days.
      I enjoyed playing warrior in PVP but, that was it, nothing else..

      Two days ago i just got my Druid level 110 and played as Feral (with the intention to play Resto or Guard 'cause i want to be a healer and/or a tank but i found the rotations a little off for me..)

      Anyway, my question is, what should i play? I was thinking about a Disc Priest or a Ench/Resto Shaman or a Brew/Mist Monk. I just can't decide what i should play and unfortunately i have to level them from scratch..

      Any advice ?

      I really need a new perspective 'bout what i should play :)

      Maximum Effort is a new guild on Cenarion circle (A). I was the raid leader for my guild for a long time and we built up a strong raid team. Due to do some dis-agreements between me and the guild leader I was forced to leave. But luckly enough a lot of my team followed me! We're working to build a guild focused around team work and group progression. We love doing mythics, raids, talking and theory crafting about the game!
      We have a very strong-core raid group, capable of clearing heroic and doing some mythic but we're just missing a few people to round it out!
      Raid nights.. Tue/wed 6-830pm server (9:30-11:30 est) Off night Monday 6-830pm server (9-11:30 est)
      Looking for.. -Any and all dps specs
      - Non pally or holy priest healer!
      All raid mats and needs are covered by guild, we run personal look just for the ease of it.
      My btag is Hethrus#1504 if you have questions or wish to try out!

      I'm not quite sure what's going on, but for some reason, I have yet to pull ANY Priest cards out of the thirty or so packs of KFT that I've opened so far. The only KFT Priest card that I have at all is Shadowreaper Anduin, which I got for completing the prologue. It's not that I'm getting bad pulls in general - I've pulled multiple legendaries already, and have lots of cards for every other class.
      I suspect that I'm just having an odd run of luck, but it does seem to be a bit anomalous. What -are- the chances of not getting any cards from a particular class out of thirty packs?

      So I just got back into playing hearthstone again, been a little over a year(still consider myself a noob), and I just got enough dust to craft a legendary. I've been playing priest a lot lately due to the shadowreaper anduin drop, and I've really been enjoying it, but can't seem to get past rank 20. Should I craft Lyra, Raza, or Velen to make that deck better, or forgo crafting a legendary and focus more on rares/epics to fill out the deck?
      I think it's a control deck but I'm not entirely sure, still new to building decks.;74:1;232:1;315:2;401:1;415:2;431:2;438:1;544:1;547:1;600:2;641:1;656:1;671:1;35240:1;49630:2;49638:1;55543:2;58722:2;62870:1;62889:1;62951:2
