What rank can you reach with this deck?

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

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 Mage Legendary from Knights of the Frozen Throne has been revealed, and it is called Sindragosa. It is the seventeenth card to be revealed from the upcoming expansion.
      Sindragosa is an interesting card, and a difficult one to evaluate. It is also worth noting that it is a Dragon.

      Sindragosa provides plenty of value. It is a very slow minion, but we have recently seen with Medivh, the Guardian, that slow value is very playable in the correct deck. Value Mage has been a feature of the Journey to Un'Goro meta under various names, and there is no reason to believe that will change after Knights of the Frozen Throne is released. The main obstacle to it seeing play will be the competition from cards such as Archmage Antonidas and Medivh, and whether there are enough slots available in decks for multiple high Mana cards. 
      This is a card that we can expect to be tested on multiple live streams in the early days of the expansion. At the very least, it is another card that will allow people with smaller collections to play with some of the most powerful cards in the game. What Sindragosa's future is beyond that, is difficult to predict. Feel free to post your predictions in this thread!

      The latest new card to be revealed is a Rogue Common, Vampiric Poison. It is the sixteenth card to be revealed so far.
      Vampiric Poison uses the new keyword Lifesteal. Lifesteal heals the hero for an amount equal to damage done, in the same way as Wickerflame Burnbristle.

      In a vacuum, it seems that this card is not very good. Health totals tend to be a long way behind tempo gain in terms of how important they are to a deck, and playing Vampiric Poison will often throw away a card for no gain in tempo. When put into context of the current meta, Rogue does need a heal fairly urgently. Unfortunately Vampiric Poison is only an effective heal when put on a weapon with either high attack, or with high durability, and current rogue decks play neither.  Anyone looking to try to make this card work would do well to consider Assassin's Blade and work from there.

      Mountainfire Armor and Nerubian Unraveler have been revealed by Tesdey, Reynad, and Eloise.
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out in our Knights of the Frozen Throne guide.
      Mountainfire Armor

      Deathrattle: If it's your opponent's turn, gain 6 Armor.
      Vanilla test? ✓
      Strong effect? ✓

      If we're to learn anything from Shieldmaiden, it's that cards that don't even pass the vanilla test but provide a significant amount of armor will see play and feel amazing in control-oriented warrior decks. Whether control warriors will come back to life given the still-existence of Jade druids and the  like is questionable however, but if it does, this card will certainly be MVP. Value-wise, its Deathrattle, if triggered properly, is worth a bit over 2 mana. Giving this Taunt through Sunfury Protector or Defender of Argus might be one way to ensure it triggers, though its pseudo-area of effect protection is also to be underlined. Would Pirate and Taunt warriors run this guy? Doubtful. It is pretty good for arena however, though it sports an unfortunate rare rarity, meaning you won't see it a lot.
       
      Nerubian Unraveler

      I'm not too sure what to think of this. On one hand, this looks to be some kind of anti combo deck tech card. Unfortunately, its cost seems really prohibitive, making it difficult to drop it in a pinch along something else for a strong turn, and its stats are so underwhelming despite the effect being mirrored that it may end up being a dead draw against anything that doesn't rely on spells. Might decks that don't run many spells such as Ramp druids or more experimental Handbuff paladins be seen running this? Maybe. Innervating this out, or better yet, finding one with Barnes may certainly be annoying to deal with, especially considering the effect stacks; get enough of these out on the field, and nobody has to ever worry about spells again. Though I feel this is unlikely to ever see serious play, I'm sure we'll have plenty of Evolve and Moonglade Portal related occasions to make sure this guy shows up to throw a monkey wrench in your occasional match.

      Real1992 has revealed an upcoming rare Mage card called the Ghastly Conjurer.
      More information about latest reveals and Knights of the Frozen Throne news can be found in our Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion guide.
      Mage's Ghastly Conjurer
      The next rare card that has been revealed is the Ghastly Conjurer. It's a solid card for Quest Mage that may synergize with Archmage Antonidas and Open the Waygate.

      Professor Putricide has been revealed by DDaHyoNi
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out in our Knights of the Frozen Throne guide.
      Professor Putricide

      Good news everyone! Cloaked Huntress just made a new best friend on turn 7 or earlier, if the former is kept alive. Whether hunters will want to play the value game, however, as a class that historically relied on aggro and midrange playstyles, is another story. We'll have to see if hunters receive more Secret support to really understand Putricide's power, but it doesn't currently fit into any competitive hunter deck (if they do exist at all). Still, the statline is appropriate. Let us note that it is the only non-Beast hunter legendary so far, which is interesting.
