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.

      The update will take effect on October 18.
      Well, the balance changes were smaller than expected as only three cards were affected this time.
      As expected, Giggling Inventor was affected as it now costs 7 mana, up from 5. The team actually considered it too powerful for 6 mana, which raises the question why it was 5 mana in the first place. Anyway, it still remains an odd card if this is still relevant.

      Now, a big and unexpected change was Mana Wyrm being raised to 2 mana. The iconic Classic minion has undergone the Tunnel Trogg treatment and after 4+ years of power, it is ready to retire.

      And a Wild change to alleviate the devastating Druid combo: Aviana will now cost 10 mana. This means she can't be played at the same turn as Kun the Forgotten King and Juicy Psychmelon won't be able to draw both Kun the Forgotten King and Aviana with it.

      The update will go live on October 18th with the weekly reset. What do you guys think about the changes?

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!

      The details for this year's Hallow's End festivities have been revealed.
      As already known from update 12.2, Hallow's End will return from October 17 until October 31. During that time, upon logging in you will receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron and a free Arena ticket.
      You can use that ticket to enter the Dual Class Arena event. You will choose a Hero, then the Hero Power of another Hero and you will make a deck consisting of both Heroes' class cards and neutral cards. If you have an Arena run in progress when Hallow’s End begins on October 17, then it will be retired and you’ll receive the normal rewards for the number of wins you achieved and a free Arena ticket.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end. During the first week (October 17-22), there will be a new Tavern Brawl called Monster Smash. You will get randomly assigned one of six Monster Hunt villains with a premade deck. The other Tavern Brawl (October 24-29) is the one we saw last year as well, The Headless Horseman Rides Again!
      Lastly, the new Paladin Hero, Sir Annoy-o, will be available as a bundle along with 20 Witchwood card packs. The pricing of the bundle is still unknown.

      It’s the Headless Horseman’s favorite time of year, and he’s returning to the Hearthstone tavern from October 17 through October 31 to host another a blowout Hallow’s End celebration for everyone! If you dare to brave a tavern decked in delightfully dreary decorations, you’ll find that your horrific host has also planned some spine-tingling treats and chilling challenges!
       
      Tempting Treats
      The Headless Horseman is handing out ghoulish goodies just for logging in! Log in between October 17 and 10 p.m. PDT on October 31 to receive a free golden Witch’s Cauldron card and an Arena ticket.

       
      The Great Hallow’s End Arena Costume Party
      During Hallow’s End you can experience dual class Arena* with an added twist: Each of the nine classic Hearthstone Heroes will be attending in costume!

       
      When you start an Arena run during Hallow’s End, you’ll choose a Hero, then a Hero Power, and the cards offered in your picks will feature cards from BOTH of those classes, in addition to neutral cards. And don’t forget, you’ll get a free Arena ticket just for logging in, so there’s no excuse not to attend the party!
       
      TWO Tricky Tavern Brawls!
      Monster Smash is a special Hallow’s End Tavern Brawl that will run from October 17 to Oct. 22.
       
      Wise monster hunters avoid the haunted wood during Hallow’s End, so the creepy creatures of the Witchwood are taking the opportunity to find out which among them is the strongest! Take control of a monster from The Witchwood’s Monster Hunt single-player mission and SMASH the competition!

       
      The Headless Horseman Rides Again is a special Hallow’s End Tavern Brawl that will run from Oct. 24 to 29.
       
      The Headless Horseman has been marauding through the countryside, and it’s up to you to stop him! You’ll go in disguise to catch the fiend by surprise—after the Brawl begins, you’ll get to Discover which costume you’ll wear. Each costume has its own deck featuring cards from several classes and a passive Hero Power that you’ll need to make the most of if you want to succeed at sinking the sinister specter!

       
      Hallow! Hallow! Bundle
      While the creatures of the Witchwood stir, and townsfolk cower during the fearful fun of Hallow’s End, Sir Annoy-o remains ever undaunted! He doesn’t even know what a daunt is! Say HELLO! HELLO! HELLO! to the new Paladin Hero and add 20 The Witchwood card packs to your collection when you buy the Hallow! Hallow! Bundle.
       


       
      There’s a feast of fearsome fun to be had at the Headless Horseman’s Hallow’s End hootenanny. Don’t forget to check out a Hallow’s End Fireside Gatherings Tavern near you and get Nemsy Necrofizzle as the celebration continues!
       
      We hope you’ll join us, and we wish you a HAPPY HALLOW’S END!

       
      * NOTE: If you have an Arena run in progress when Hallow’s End begins on October 17, then it will be retired and you’ll receive the normal rewards for the number of wins you achieved and a free Arena ticket. In the hours just before the beginning and conclusion of Hallow’s End on October 17 and October 31, the ability to purchase a new Arena ticket will be temporarily disabled.
