What rank can you reach with this deck?

Legend, though it won't be as easy as dragon warrior or face shaman.

How to replace Ressurect ? It will go to Wild soon.

We don't know what Un'goro has to offer yet, so I'd recommend waiting, especially since Resurrect won't be going sooner than with Un'goro, and that will likely happen during April, so no need to search for swaps yet.

Yeah but I dont have it, that is the problem. I wont buy expanssion now to get it, since it is going to Wild in couple of weeks. 

I am newbie in game, got some dust and trying to built my first non-basic cheap deck. 

I crafted all the card from set except: Ressurect, Darkshire Alchemist, Entomb and Justicar Trueheart. 

It seems that I miss Ressurect the most, bacause I am loosing board control at early stage and cannot catch up without this card.

You can run one Acidic Swamp Ooze, two Excavated Evils, two Cabal Shadow Priests, and one Greater Healing Potion. If you are missing both Darkshire Alchemists, you can include one Holy Smite as well. I've also requested an update to this deck, so maybe you will get better answers from our writers.

Hi it is me Mac, I've signed up to Icy Veins :-)

Thank You for your tips.

What about Kabal Talonpriest? It is higly recommended according this

I've also put two Onyx Bishops to my deck, since it has ressurect abillity, but it costs much more mana than Ressurect spell. Should i stick to that? 

 

And I forgot to mention that I posses Baron Geddon legendary. Should i try to include it to deck? It seems it works simillar as Wild Pyromancer but with bigger damage. Feels like it would be helpful...

Sure, Kabal Talonpriest can be added to the deck, though you won't have as many targets as you would in dragon priest or reno priest, which will make Kabal Talonpriest basically a Spider Tank, which is still acceptable.
Onyx Bishop is an okay card if you do not have Resurrect, but the power of Resurrect is its low cost and its ability to swing board early. You can try that and then make your decision after like 15 game - it's not like the deck cannot be changed at any time. 
The main use of Wild Pyromancer is to clear board early against aggressive decks. Baron Geddon cannot supplement it because his mana cost is too high to affect early board, obviously.

How is this a standard deck? It's running BrM, TGT, and. HoF cards, and it's not even running the medivh it advertised. It looks more like wild ressurect priest.

A wrong decklist was used. Thanks for pointing this out! We'll be fixing this shortly.

How to beat Quest Rogue with this? 80%+ of my opponents play that deck and i am always dead at turn 7 or before.

Sure, you have Dragonfire but they just drop multiple 5-5 minions next turn. And again, and again.

I gave up on the Ungoro version of this deck after going 0-15 with it.

No chance against Quest Rogues. And this deck doesn't "control" anything. I know I wasn't lucky with card draw, but simply got run over by hunters, mages and everything else.

Sadly, quest rogue is control priests worst machup in current meta. You could add a few techs, but the winrate would not reach 50% anyway, so I recommend playing a different deck instead.

Would Kabal Courier work as a more budget replacement for Curious Glimmerroot? Don't really want to fork out the 800 dust (yet).

Aye. I recommend getting Curious Glimmerroot if you intend to play this deck as your main priest deck, though if you aren't planning on making this deck or the miracle dragon your main priest deck, I advise against crafting it, actually.

After playing a bit, came to the conclusion that this deck is unplayable. It doesnt control anything and gets easily  overrun, for example by aggrodruids and hunters. No chance at all against quest rogues and quest warriors because of the lack of pressure. Against pirate warriors its 50-50 and solely decided by mutual card draw. Only against a very limited amount of decks it works well.

Hunters and druids (with the exception of jade) are actually great matchups for control priests. Did you read the guide and are following it? I have no issues against these two classes (again, with the exception of jades) and am able to take them into late-game and win the value fight.

      In the Year of the Pheonix post, we learned more about the Ranked mode overhaul in Hearthstone and Blizzard has now put together a general matchmaking FAQ which hopefully helps answer the most common questions.

      Rank Mode Changes
      The existing ladder in Ranked Mode has been replaced with a new league system. The system has five leagues each made up of 10 ranks. You will start each season at Bronze 10 and slowly make your way to Bronze 1 before graduating to the Silver League and above. Each league also has rank floors at rank 10 and rank 5 where you won't go down in ranks when losing matches. New players will have their own league that runs from ranks 40-1. 
      Stars & Bonuses
      You need to gain 3 starts to be promoted from Gold 10 to Gold 9 for example. You will gain one star for each match you win and lose one for a loss.  Based on your performance in the previous season, you will be rewarded with a star bonus which acts as a multiplier on the starts you get from each win.
      Ranked Rewards
      They've also reworked rewards that you earn at the end of each season or Ranked Play. Reward chest can now contain card packs from the latest expansions, Rare, and even Epic cards based on the rank you achieve. There are also brand new first-time rewards to help new players.

      You can find more details here and check out the FAQ below for more information.

      Hey everyone! We put together a general matchmaking FAQ here for our new ranked system to help answer questions you may have.
      For general description of this new system, please refer to our Year of the Phoenix blog.
      If you want to learn some basic concepts of matchmaking, here is our previous blog about matchmaking in Battlegrounds.
      Q: How does matchmaking work for each season?
      A: There are two matchmaking pools: matchmaking by rating (aka. MMR) and by rank.
      When your star bonus multiplier is bigger than 1, or you are in Legend rank, you are (generally) in the first matchmaking pool; when your star bonus drops to 1, you are in the second pool.
      Q: Why are there two matchmaking pools?
      A: Since each player starts at the bottom of the ladder at start, we want fair matches for everyone (aka. win-rate close to 50%). At that time, your progression on ladder is protected by your star bonus, thus your net expected gain will be positive through the ladder. Once other players run out of star bonuses, matching by rank will allow for good players, or players who want to push themselves a bit, to be able to progress to a higher rank.
      In short, having two matchmaking pools helps players progress in the ladder without having to grind as much, while still making most matches fair.
      Q: If I “tank” my MMR at certain rank floor, will I be matched with easier opponents next season because you are matchmaking by MMR at the start?
      A: No, in general you won’t. At the start of the season we will recover your MMR to certain threshold if it is dropped below that value, which is based on what your rank is in the previous season. Therefore, there would be no benefits to intentionally tank your MMR.
      Q: How many stars bonuses do I get at the start of the season?
      A: It depends on your current MMR and the rank you reached from your previous season, whichever gives a higher value. Generally, the minimal initial star bonuses you get for each rank floor you reached are:
      Best Rank Minimal Initial Star Bonuses Bronze 10 2 Bronze 5 2 Silver 10 2 Silver 5 3 Gold 10 4 Gold 5 5 Platinum 10 6 Platinum 5 7 Diamond 10 8 Diamond 5 9 Legend 10 As you can see, every player starts with at least two stars bonuses.
      Q: Do you reset MMR each season?
      A: No, we do not.
      Q: Will the value of my previous season’s MMR be exactly same as the new season?
      A: Technically no, although the change will be very small and the “value order” will be kept (Player A whose MMR is larger than player B in the last season will still be ordered as such). Mathematically, a re-normalization process takes place at the start of each season to keep the distribution in a nice bell-shaped curve.
      Q: If I missed one season, will I lose my star bonuses when I return?
      A: No, you won’t.
      Q: If I missed multiple seasons, will I lose star bonuses when I return?
      A: Based on how long you are absent, there will be some small decay applied to your MMR. Therefore, you may (or may not) lose some star bonuses.
      Q: Where do the win steak bonuses end?
      A: Diamond 5.
