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.

      Players can earn up to three free packs for logging in to Hearthstone during the Hearthstone World Championships.
      The folks over at Hearthpwn.com have learned from data mining of patch 10.0 that the Hearthstone World Championships will offer players three free packs as daily login rewards. The first day of the championships will give players a Journey to Un'Goro pack, the second day a Knights of the Frozen Throne pack, and the third a Kobolds & Catacombs pack. The Hearthstone home screen will also change to sparkling white theme honor the World Championships.

      Along with this week's awesome Tavern Brawl featuring World Championship winning decks, this marks the first time that Blizzard has brought Hearthstone eSports all the way to the Hearthstone client. Given the recent start of the Overwatch League and the choose your champion feature for the World Championships, it seems that Blizzard is supporting competitive gaming now more than ever.

      This week's Brawl honours the 3 previous Hearthstone World Champions!
      The 2018 World Championship is about to begin and Team 5 is celebrating by giving us a very special Tavern Brawl. In this Brawl, you get to play with decks that the previous world champions from 2014, 2015 and 2016 used on their way to the top. Your player name will even change to the respective Champion: Firebat, Ostkaka or Pavel!
      Here are the deck archetypes you can get:
      Firebat's Undertaker Hunter Firebat's Ramp Druid Firebat's Miracle Rogue Firebat's Zoolock Ostkaka's Patron Warrior Ostkaka's Oil Rogue Ostkaka's Freeze Mage Pavel's Tempo Mage Pavel's Malygos Miracle Rogue Pavel's Midrange Shaman Pavel's C'Thun Warrior Pavel's Malygos OTK Druid You might think: "why would I want to play a deck from 2014 with cards that have been nerfed"? Well, all cards are on their pre-nerfed versions, therefore they are basically in the same state as when originally used by each World Champion. So, say hello to pre-nerf Undertaker, Leper Gnome, Hex and many others.
      Amnesiac can never catch a break.
      A slight inconsistency is that cards that generate other cards or tokens, like Piloted Shredder or Babbling Book, can generate cards/tokens from later expansions. For example, my opponent's dead Shredder created Friendly Bartender, a card that neither Champion had encountered at their time.
      Enjoy the Brawl and tune in to the World Championship this weekend!

      Aleco walks through a series of simple early-game decisions while playing an Unstable Evolution deck.
      "Simple early game decisions" and "multi-turn decisions" are the two most common requests I've been receiving since the start of this series, so I decided to do an episode that tackles both! In today's episode I navigate a series of relatively simple early-game decisions against an aggressive Hunter start with my Unstable Evolution Shaman deck.
      If you have any requests for future episodes of "What's the Move?", please feel free to reach out to me here on Icy Veins or via Twitter @Aleco_P. I prefer to always fulfill requests for new episodes if possible, and always love hearing feedback from the community which can help me improve on this series in the future. Don't be shy!
