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.

      We have a huge "in the works" update from the Hearthstone dev team, showing off some of the features coming in the next months for the game. From general information like them being pleased about the state of the Standard meta, to potential Wild changes, new Classic cards, an extended "intro" period for new players with 25 additional ranks and extra rewards (that are skippable), plans for improvements to in-game tournaments, a tweaking of the Welcome Bundle and more.
      We're also getting a preview for this year's Hallow's End and an upcoming new Paladin hero!
      September 18 (source)
      Welcome to Hearthstone’s first In the Works update. Here we’re giving you a brief look at what’s coming in the next few months for Hearthstone—game updates and events, esports, and more!
      There’s a lot to talk about, so read on to find out what’s in store.
      Game Updates
       
      The State of the Meta We’ve seen the meta-game start to stabilize in the wake of The Boomsday Project’s release. Decks like Odd Warrior, Odd Paladin, Token Druid, Tempo Mage, Taunt Druid, Zoo Warlock, Quest Rogue, Secret Hunter, Even Paladin, Deathrattle Hunter, and Even Warlock, have all been top performers.
      While those decks stand out from the pack slightly, there are effective decks from every class. Evolve Shaman and Combo Priest have both seen success, for example.
      Overall we’re happy with the excellent diversity of decks we’re seeing at all levels of Ranked Play.
       
      Cards to Watch Giggling Inventor is hugely popular and shows up in a lot of decks. We intended for Giggling Inventor to be powerful because we’ve found that having powerful neutral Taunt minions tends to make games more interesting. We’ve seen that with cards like Sludge Belcher and Tar Creeper in the past. Cards that fulfill this role need to be strong to get that job done, but there’s a line where they might be too good. 
      We aren’t planning any changes to Giggling Inventor for now, but we’re keeping an eye on it in the meantime. We’d like to know what you think.
       
      Wild Balance There’s been an ongoing discussion within the team regarding how Wild should play. Right now, Wild feels somewhat like Standard but with an elevated power level and a vast library of cards. Should Wild live up to its name more, where we allow really crazy and powerful combos to happen, even in the early game? Generally, it’s harder for any one strategy to be dominant in Wild since everything is so powerful and everyone has access to so many tools, but do we want those strategies to exist? We know that there are players who would prefer to have a mode that offers that kind of gameplay.
      There’s also the point to consider that the reason to have multiple modes in Hearthstone is for them to play differently, so there are downsides to trying to put the reins on Wild too much. But we also recognize that there might be decks like Naga Sea Witch that become too prevalent and simply aren’t fun to play against.
      We’d love to hear your opinions about what you want from Wild. What do you think of how it is now, and what’s the role you see for it in the future of Hearthstone?
       
      New Classic Cards If you’ve been playing Hearthstone for a while, then you already know that with each new Hearthstone year, we’ve chosen certain cards to rotate out of the Standard format. Some of those cards have been part of the Classic format, which is usually an evergreen part of the Standard format.
      A few of the cards that left Standard were Class cards, but we want each Class to have a roughly equal number of cards available in the Classic set. To accomplish that, we’re adding four all-new cards to fill the gap.
      Here are the new Class cards being added to the Classic set. You’ll be able to craft them or open them in Classic card packs next month:
       

      When designing these cards we are thinking about new players’ first experiences playing Hearthstone.  They should be relatively straightforward while still creating some exciting moments. They also give players a chance to see and play with cards that they don't own. At the same time it’s important that they aren’t so powerful that they limit future design or cause problems (since they’ll be in Standard for longer than 2 years.)
      Looking forward, we expect more cards to join the Hall of Fame. There are also still some gaps in Classic where neutral Legendary cards joined the Hall of Fame, so we’re considering adding some new cards to the Classic set in the future.
       
      New Player Experience Improvements Even at Rank 25, competition in the Tavern can be fierce, especially if you’ve never played Hearthstone before. We’d like to ease new players into the fray a little more gently, so we’re taking some steps toward improving the new player experience. Here’s what newcomers to the Hearthstone tavern can expect to find:

       
      New players will start at Rank 50. Ranks 50 through 26 will be for new players only, and just like ranks 25 through 20, you can’t lose Stars while ranking up. Once a player achieves Rank 25, they’ll never drop below that rank again. We hope this gives players who are new to Hearthstone a little more time to get used to the Tavern, and we’ll also be giving them a few free gifts along the way to help them get up to speed. If you’re an experienced player making an additional account, there will be an option to skip the New Player Experience (and some loot, so consider carefully!) so you can get back into the competition faster. There are a few more details that we’ll provide in the future, but that’s the gist of it!
       
      In-game Tournaments Update Earlier this year we talked about adding a new feature to Hearthstone that would make it easier to organize tournaments for Fireside Gatherings and private events. The team has been working on this feature for some time, and it was originally slated to arrive this year. Unfortunately, In-game Tournaments are now on hold, so we wanted to take this opportunity to explain why.
      We have a lot of plans to improve many features of Hearthstone, including its social experience, and In-game Tournaments are an important part of that. Tournaments can serve many different audiences, but the implementation we’d arrived at catered to a very specific audience of players. Instead of broadening Hearthstone with an exciting new way to play, it felt “tacked on”, and wasn’t integrating well into the larger Hearthstone experience.
      Ultimately, we were forced to conclude that we needed to think about how and where we want to improve Hearthstone’s overall social experience before we can tackle adding a satisfying and robust implementation of In-game Tournaments that all players can enjoy. As developers, sometimes we have to make the difficult decision to step away from a design that isn’t working. We no longer felt that the end result would deliver on everyone’s expectations or the high standards we have for Hearthstone.
      As a result, while we want to revisit In-Game Tournaments at a later date, the feature is on hold for the foreseeable future.
       
      Fireside Gatherings If you’ve never attended a Fireside Gathering, or organized one of your own, you’re missing one of the most fun ways to enjoy Hearthstone with friends! They’re more fun than ever—including private events in your own home—so drop by the Fireside Gatherings site and check it out.
      Innkeepers are soon going to have even more options to spice up their events. It was already possible to experience Fireside Brawls (Tavern Brawls that can only be experienced at Fireside Gatherings), and now they’ll have a whole menu of Brawls to choose from to offer their attendees. In addition to the rotating monthly Fireside Brawl, Innkeepers will be able to select one additional Fireside Brawl from a curated library of brawls that their patrons will have access to during their Fireside Gathering. 
       
      Esports The 2018 HCT Fall Championship is coming mid-October! Watch it live on stream or live in-person at the Blizzard Arena in Los Angeles.
      It’s going to be a thrilling event to witness, and if you can be there live, it gets even better! You’ll get to meet Hearthstone developers, enjoy pick-up tournaments on-site, snap up cool stuff like Hearthstone and Blizzard Arena merchandise and earn the Thrill of Victory card back just for attending!
      You can get your tickets here. Get them fast before they sell out as seating is limited!
       
      Welcome Bundle’s Roaring Return Okay, it never left, but it IS getting a majestic make-over. It will still offer 10 Classic card packs at a very low price (great time to try to pick up those new Classic Class cards!), but instead of a random Class Legendary card, it will now include one of six Legendary dragons from the Classic set: Alexstrasza, Deathwing, Malygos, Nozdormu, Onyxia, or Ysera!

       
      There’s even better news! What could be better than dragons, you ask? Even if you’ve purchased the Welcome Bundle before, you’ll be able to grab this one too!

       
      Upcoming Game Events
       
      Hallow’s End
      The Headless Horseman returns for another spooktacular Hallow’s End event starting October 17! Just like last year, the Tavern will be decked out in horrific fashion, the dual Class Arena returns, and you’ll face the Headless Horseman in the Tavern Brawl. In the spirit of the season, we’re tossing a few more treats in the bag this year, and we’ll let you know all about them as the Headless Horseman’s return draws nigh.

       
      Hallow’s End also marks the arrival of a friendly new Paladin Hero who will be available for purchase as a part of a special deal!
       


      And that’s what’s In the Works for Hearthstone! Thanks for joining us, and we look forward to hearing what you think, so let us know on social media, or in the comments below.
      New Paladin Hero, new Classic cards, an improved new player experience with more loot and more!
