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.

      I am glad I'm watching Chump because not only he's an inspiration but also because I was browsing through the standard priest deck lists provided here and even though it's a long list they are all pretty much the same (many of them no fun anymore, at least to me and def. no fun to play against) and I get the feeling lately Icy Veins tries to provide the most expensive decks only. No doubt they are effective and successful but as I said, getting bored and it's kind of bad for every new player visiting this page and just seeing (s)he has to play longer than some cards take to rotate out of standard to acquire a viable deck. 
      So, I was wondering why are the no decks like the following in this list, something wrong with adding such decks? Of course you can't add every possible deck type/variation but with a dozen Highlander and Dragon priest decks already being in this list there should be room for at least one or two others.
      All credit goes to Chump for this deck, I'm just posting it as well as his first video with it.
      Budget Aggro Priest: Total dust cost 1600.
      With all of the cards being basic, common or rare we can assume most players have most of the cards maybe a few to craft. Pretty cheap imo.
      2x Emerald Reaver 2x Northshire Cleric 2x Potion of Madness 2x Power Word: Shield 2x Voodoo Doctor 2x Golakka Crawler 2x Radiant Elemental 2x Shadow Ascendant 1x Deathspeaker 2x Happy Ghoul 2x Kabal Talonpriest 2x Auchenai Soulpriest 2x Keening Banshee 1x Darkscale Healer 2x Sunborne Val'kyr 2x Bonemare Deck Code: AAECAa0GAsYEmssCDoQB7QHlBPIMtbsC8LsC2MEC3cIC5MICyMsCzswCn84Cps4ClegCAA==
      He was playing 2 version of this deck with the other being a bit more expensive using Genzo, the Shark and Leeroy Jenkins instead of the 2 Auchenai Soulpriest.
      Have Fun :)
