My issue is synergy of resurrect/onyx bishop with loot hoarder. Surely you'd rather avoid it? 

Depends on what you're playing against. 

Vs Control, you'd rather avoid playing a loot hoarder early, so you can resurrect better minions. 

Vs Aggro, loot horder is a decent enough minion on the board and repeatedly resurrecting one will get you more cards

 

I've been playing a version of this deck with Barnes. The 1/1 version of Auchenai Soulpriest, Priest of the Feast, or Sylvanus are great, but even a 1/1 Northshire Cleric or Loot Horder is decent enough; and the resurrected versions come back at full strength.

I've been seeing versions of this in the single digit ranks running Barnes with  Y'Shaarj, Rage UnboundRagnaros the Firelord and Ysera. I lost one match up due to the other player playing Barnes on turn 3 with the coin who pulled Y'Shaarj, Rage Unbound who then in turn pulled Ragnaros the Firelord. That was some beautiful RNG and a very unlikely situation to repeat but it was enough to crush me with the Resurrect synergy and that high of quality of minions that early. What are your thoughts on this set up Sottle?

Resurrected Barnes would suck though.

Found this deck too hard to master, couldn't even get off the ground at rank 20. Just get annihilated by turn 4 by aggro decks (Hunter, Shaman, Warlock), they just push face damage and I can't keep up killing off minions. Maybe worth including pyromancer Idk. 

Is anyone actually at legend rank with this deck? ?

I bet Zetalot is.

Pyromancer is crucial against Aggro, that's for sure. Also stick in Barnes and a couple of big guys like Ragnaros - free wins are cool!

I invested in this deck today. As far as I can see it seems like a fun deck if you dont mind your games lasting a half hour.

That's the key point here. This deck is not ideal for the initial grind, as with every control deck. You can do it, of course, but you'll be playing the game for a lot longer. Generally, it's better to use an aggro/mid deck to blast through everything in the low ranks, then swap to a control deck when the wins start to actually matter more and you start getting closer to legend.

It's a solid deck, but you will definitely struggle vs. the really strong aggro decks that flood the lower ranks, especially if they draw well.

Is there a good replacement for Sylvanas Windrunner ?

Elise? Boulderfist? Emperor Thaurissan? Reno? Stormwind Champion?

Sylvanas Windrunner is just sooo good in this deck. She is good on her own, but the possibility of getting her again for 2 mana is just too good to turn down. I saw some people running Barnes and either Ragnaros the Firelord or Ysera with him. You can also try Cabal Shadow Priest or Excavated Evil/Holy Nova.

That's a shame.

Not sure I want to commit to disenchanting 4 legendary cards just to craft Sylvanas Windrunner for this deck

I have all adventure pack cards, but my legendary cards outside of adventure packs are pretty limited.... Leeroy Jenkins only lol

Sylvanas is one of those legendaries that, at least in my opinion, is worth crafting. She can be used in so many decks it's crazy.

Sylvanas Windrunner is #1 legendary in standard and should have priority over other legendaries. You don't necessarily need to disenchant 4 legendaries. You can simply collect dust from commons and rares over the span of a few months to get her.

Yeah, but doesn't help much right now when you are bored silly of face hunter for weeks on end and want to play a control deck ;)

If there is no suitable replacement card I'll just have to accept the fact that I'll have to either a) disenchant legendary cards b) disenchant duplicates over a few month c) stick to hunter lol

You just have to accept the monotony. On my NA account, I play only C'thun decks (yes, for all 9 classes) and have over 600 games with them. I haven't played any decks that do not contain C'Thun and I am fine with it. It gets the job done and there are never two same games.

You can temporarily use the cards I listed, but they simply won't be as good as Sylvanas Windrunner. So you can either play suboptimal deck, or stick to hunter.

If a deck goes through a major revision, as this one obviously has, do you not even bother with a changelog???

No, it did not go through a revision. I suppose you mistook decks. You might have been looking for regular control priest, or C'thun/N'Zoth priest.

I was 99% sure my previous resurrect deck came from here, but you're probably right. The deck I was using had Barnes, Ysera, NZoth, Cairne, Holy Nova, Excavated Evil etc.

It's possible that it was Emb's N'zoth priest (reddit post). Our resurrect priest hasn't been changed since we released the guide.
I personally prefer not to run huge minions in resurrect priest and rather focus on stronger early game, which often surprises opponents, especially with control decks, leading to a victory. Which approach do you personally prefer?

Yes, this is it. Sorry to spout off. I do occasionally get decks from hearthstonetopdecks. I do prefer more early game/better curve.

Not really. Ressurecting Barnes himself isn't really great. If he pulls you a 1/1 Injured Blademaster, then it's one more of them in the ressurection pool, which is nice. But for the same price he pulls you a 1/1 Northshire Cleric, which is less nice. Sylvanas Windrunner is an immediate threat, and managing to resurrect her 2-3 times leads to ragequits.

You'll need some form of board presence against bumrushers, you can't allow to coast on hero power alone until turn 5-6 against Zoo Lock, Face Hunter (or any other Aggro deck beside Mage who doesn't give a fuck about what you have on the board and just melts your face).

Not Entomb. It is way too useful to turn your opponent's late-game threats against him. If you really want a big taunt minion, remove Darkshire Alchemist. Or Entomb your opponent's Ancient of War or Tirion Fordring.

Holy Nova is better, especially if you manage to have some form of board presence.

      A new Tavern Brawl has been introduced this week by Ahune the Frost Lord himself.
      In this Brawl, you will play as either Uther or Jaina. They both have premade decks and Uther is reportedly slightly better than Jaina, which is interesting since Mage usually dominates in Tavern Brawls.
      Here is Uther's deck:
      Jaina uses a Reno deck, minus the Reno:
      Both heroes are immune to damage and they cannot be healed nor keep armor. The only way to damage them is by killing the Ragnaros? minions. These are 1/4 minions and there is one of them at each side of the board. They cannot attack and upon death they deal 4 damage to the opponent of the current player. This means that you can kill both minions (the one on your side and the one on your opponent's side) and your opponent will take all the damage. Moreover, once a Ragnaros? dies, a new one will appear thus making it possible to kill multiple of them in one turn.

      Some tips you should know:
      If the game reaches the fatigue stage, in the next round the enemy that has the least amount of health will automatically die and their opponent will be crowned as the winner. At the moment, Ice Block and Eye for an Eye seem to be bugged and they are not working as intended. This will be fixed soon. Bomb Squad and Ancient Curse deal no actual damage to you, so don't be afraid! This is the 110th Brawl and it's part of the Frost Festival. If you want to find out more about the Frost Festival, check our main article on it.

      As Ragnaros' Midsummer Fire Festival has ended, it is time for Ahune the Frost Lord to take over with the Frost Festival! 
      As we explained in our previous post, this is a holiday that celebrates Arena mode. Once you log in the game, you will see that Ahune is giving you a free Arena ticket for this week. This will happen for the entire duration of the festival, so in total you will get three free Arena keys.
      You will also get a free win each time you start an Arena run, whether it's from a free or a purchsed entrance key.
      You will also get a quest to play three Arena games. This weekly quest awards you with a Knights of the Frozen Throne card pack. Once again, you will receive this quest next week and the week after that accounting for a total of three Knights of the Frozen Throne packs (assuming you complete the quests).

      Feel free to check out our Arena guides and card rankings before you step into the Arena!
      As far as the themed Tavern Brawl called Ahune's Superior Brawl is concerned, you can read more about it here.
      The Frost Festival has created speculation for the next expansion. Since it will run for three weeks, it is going to end on August 9. The day after that, August 10, is thought by many to be the date that Knight of the Frozen Throne will be released.

      Well, after the failed interview with Ben Brode and his dreams of being a Hearthstone developer squashed, the Lord of the Scourge decided to prove himself an accomplished entrepreneur and take what he's naturally good at - making ice - and adding cream. And so, behold the new ICC, Arthas' latest wondrous edifice: the Ice Cream Citadel.
      Of course, true to form, Blizzard took this little in-joke all the way and will have the Ice Cream Citadel, an actual ice cream shop, at the Petco Park Interactive Zone in San Diego near San Diego Comic-Con®, featuring two flavors: Villain-illa and Scourgeberry Sorbet.
      Blizzard (source)

      Greetings, mortal whelps!
      As part of my efforts to prove to the accursed Brode that I possess the necessary experience to command the Hearthstone development team, I have decided to expand my efforts to all aspects of mortal enterprise.
      At first I considered peddling power and vengeance, but according to my focus testing, the foremost human craving seems to be for cold, creamy, sweetened sludge. I have decided to create a frozen-cream sugar-ooze unlike any you have ever tasted. You will desire it.
      Prepare yourselves for the grand opening of Ice Cream Citadel, a fortress of refreshment in the scorching heat that afflicts this place. I will be on hand to personally help you conquer the heat with free ice cream. You need spend no money for your first taste of my power.
      Choose from an endless selection of TWO flavors:

      Behold my tasteful brochure:

      Attend the Petco Park Interactive Zone in San Diego near San Diego Comic-Con® and be guided to your just desserts by this map:

      You may also take photographs of me with no immediate fear of retribution. Share proof of your delicious ice cream conquests on social media using the #icecreamcitadel “hashtag,” whatever that means.
      Begin preparations for your journey now. Ice Cream Citadel will receive supplicants between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. PDT July 20 through July 22, and 9:00 am to 5:00 pm PDT on July 23.

      Hearthstone Game Director Ben Brode did an AMA on reddit yesterday and here's a summary with the most interesting highlihts.
      Blizzard didn't want to reveal 1 card a day for the new expansion, because the feedback they were getting was that hype was slowing down as they got closer to the expansion. Cards will be revealed on July 24. They would like to make Handlock a thing again, but Brode's worried with their ability to make Handlock insane in Standard going forward, with new cards, without pushing it into insanity in Wild. It can be done in Wild by moving cards that are buffing it, or by making entirely new cards in Standard that are good in both formats.  When asked about free cards on a weekly rotation, Brode said they wouldn't be doing it due to its complexity, but the team is exploring other options with similar, less complex goals. The team internally experiments with various formats to keep the game fresh e.g. by changing the ladder format for the last month of a set. Each class will have a hero card and a legendary minion in Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion. New ladder experience is in the works with the goals to reduce the monthly grind for top-level players, increase progression for bottom 25% of player, better match-making and improve new player ranked experience. Hearthstone won't be coming to consoles anytime soon. Ice Block is a card that matches their red flags for cards that shouldn't be in Standard forever. They will continue to add more features to the collection manager. The team will make a new Druid and Warlock hero. Regarding Tyrande, the goal was to find alternative ways for regions that were not eligible for the offer to get access to Tyrande and they've been working with their regional offices to make it happen. More minion-placement cards will be added to the game. Blizzard's working on a way to provide more stats to players, but Brode doesn't like "profile" pages. The main goals with the upcoming ladder rework are Reduce grind for top-level players Increase progression for players stuck at rank 20-ish Get better matchmaking for bottom 25% players Make experience better for new players The biggest challenging is making those things better without losing what they like about the current system. Specating mode is definitely a place with a lot of room for improvement. New opportunities are on the horizon to earn packs of the new set through upcoming events and single-player missions that will be free with the new set. They're going to bring back Wild cards for sale, which should make Wild more accessible. No plans to add another class, they have plans for more unique things for Warlocks and a 10th class wouldn't be helpful. The time should be spent to make the core classes more fun. Adding the Hall of Fame in Un'Goro and hitting those 6 cards allowed them to see the "freshest" meta yet.  Changes to arena rewards are coming. Details TBA. Hero cards are a new thing that replaces your hero, not transforms them. (Source)
