I have been playing Reno Dragon Priest a lot this expansion and performed very bad with it...sadly. This deck however performs a lot better, I added Kazakus (Edit: that was stupid...no duplicates...meh...removed Kazakus and added Drakonid Crusher for now, may trade for another Book Wyrm or Dirty Rat if it doesn't work out), Sylvanas and Ragnaros and dropped 1 copy of Wyrmrest Agent, Twilight Guardian and Kabal Talonpriest for them (because I only have 1 copy of those for now). Works rather well so far...but still rather low ranked. Will give more feedback after more plays.

That's quite anti-control, rather than the common anti-aggro tech. How does the deck fare against pirate warriors?

Well, I wish I could give you an answer, but I haven't met any pirates today. For some reason today was mostly priests and everything else BUT pirates. So far my winrate is 100%, but I assume this will not hold forever. xD

Played 7 games with this and am Rank 13 currently. That is not great at all, but I only play so and so often and had a winrate of only 52% in 21 matches with Reno Dragon Priest (for which I spent all my dust... -.- ).

This list has no way of dealing with Sylvanas or Aya or White eyes..  Either entomb or Songstealer is needed .. I play the same deck except I don't run potions and use 2 holy novas ... board is very important for dragon priests ..

Any possible cards to sub for those without the adventures?

Not really. The whole deck relies on BrM and Karazhan cards, and without them, the deck will not stand a chance against any of the currently popular decks.

Yet another suicide dragon deck. Dragon priest is way too weak, simple as that.

That's a very bold statement and you have provided us with nothing to back your opinion. I, on the other, hereby give you a proof that dragon priest is actually a good deck - check this spreadsheet and notice that Dragon Priest is in the top 5 decks in winrate.

Hi i really like your build i got ysera added . But i need an upgrade somehow. The problem i encountered is against mage . Always going on a late game against them and they always get control of my legendary and finish me . Any idea how i could counter that or maybe win before entering a late game . For now i am thinking of sylvana please let me know .

Current dragon priest is faster than previous dragon priests and is played like a faster midrange than slower midrange or control. This means that Ysera is too slow as you want to use faster cards and finish your opponent quite quickly. This means you should not try to get into the late-game, not even against mages. Which card did you swap out for Ysera?

To deal with mage, board control early on, and try to heal as often as possible.

When you talk about always controlling your legendary to finish you are you referring to the mc tech? If so, avoid playing more than 3 minions. If you are talking about enemy sylv, try to make sure the opponent get less value from their own sylv.

When the game reaches late stage, you can always try the brann+netherspire historian or the brann + drakonoid op combo to get enough plays late game or try to steal an ice block to prevent a potential otk

      Anton "Dvck" Lund found his way out of a jam on the ladder. Can you?
      Dvck and Aleco discuss the importance of planning ahead, understanding the meta, and knowing when to pivot your role in a matchup.
      The player interviews I've done with RayC and TerrenceM have been some of the most fun and informative episodes of "What's the Move?", so I was very excited when Anton "Dvck" Lund reached out to me via reddit with a play from a recent game of his. Playing as Combo Dragon Priest, Dvck was able to find his way out of a tough spot against Murloc Paladin. Can you do the same?
      In this week's episode, Dvck and I discuss the importance of planning ahead, understanding the meta, and knowing when to pivot your role in a matchup. For what ended up being a relatively short episode by "WTM" standards, I was pleasantly surprised by how much we were able to break down together so quickly. The interview with Dvck was as fun as it was informative, so I hope to have him back on the show soon! If you're interested in watching some high-legend gameplay, be sure to tune into Dvck's stream on twitch.tv.
      You can look forward to a few more episodes about the Hearthstone World Championships in the coming weeks, but I always welcome submissions and suggestions for future episodes. Did you have a favorite play from the world championships? Feel free to link me the VOD here on Icy Veins or send me a message on twitter @Aleco_P.
      Thanks for watching!

      The Bloodborn is currently a Heroic raiding guild that is trying to break into Mythic progression raiding. We have a talented core and are very enthusiastic about raiding, but unfortunately we lack the numbers to attempt Mythic. We are a mostly adult guild ages 25-35 and would prefer like-aged people.
       
      A little history: The Bloodborn is a guild that has been around since The Burning Crusade. We started on the Lethon server and transferred to Illidan at the start of Warlords in an effort to find more players on a high-pop server.
       
      We have earned AoTC during every raid tier this expansion (and before!). We are a close-knit guild who help boost keys weekly, PvP, achievement hunt, and much more.
       
      We are willing to help people gear up for their tier. Voice is optional, but we use Discord and will require you at a minimum to listen.
       
      Guild Needs:
      DPS (Death Knight, Shadow Priest) are in high demand.
      Accepting applications from all specs/classes.
       
      Raiding Times:
      Monday - Tuesday - Wednesday 9:30pm-12:30am(pst) 11:30pm-2:30am(server-time)

      Kolento and ShtanUdachi found themselves in nearly identical situations at the world championships - but did they make the same decisions?
      Episode 14 of "What's the Move?" discusses the importance of being mana efficient in the early game, as well as the relationship between speed and value.

      The Hearthstone World Championships were full of incredible plays, sticky situations, and valuable lessons to be learned from the best players on the planet. There were far too many great plays to analyze in a single video, so for the next few episodes of "What's the Move?" I'll be breaking down all of my favorite plays from the World Championship weekend.
      To kick things off we have a pair of Tempo Rogue vs. Highlander Priest matchups featuring Kolento and ShtanUdachi. Both players drew nearly identical opening hands, but did they did make same decisions?
      If you managed to spot a particularly tricky or interesting play from the recent World Championships, please feel free to link it in the comment section below! I'd love to break down as many viewer-submitted topics as I can in the coming weeks and months, and I have little doubt that I may have missed some of the most fascinating plays from the tournament during my initial viewing.
      Wishing you all the best of luck in the post-nerf meta!

      Welcome to the post-Corridor Creeper meta.
      Hearthstone Update 10.2 is now live worldwide and it's a big one!
      The first change it brings are the nerfs to four cards that have terrorised dominated the meta up until now. Bonemare now costs 8 mana, Patches the Pirate no longer has Charge, Raza the Chained makes the Hero Power cost (1) instead of (0) and Corridor Creeper has been butchered down to 2 attack. You can read Aleco's interesting opinion piece on Blizzard's nerf policy here.
      The second big addition of this patch is the Ranked Play update, which will take effect on March 2018. Players will now drop only 4 ranks with each monthly reset, all ranks will have 5 stars and you will only need to win 5 Ranked games to earn the monthly card back.
      The Year of the Mammoth Bundle is also finally available on the Shop. For $19.99 or 19.99 EUR, you can get 30 packs - 10 for each of the Year of the Mammoth expansions (Un'Goro, KFT, K&C). Don't forget that the Quest for Packs event is still ongoing and an addition has been made to the grand prize winner reward: $1.200 (read here for more info)!
      Lastly, the patch introduces the Wildfest event. From February 19 to March 11, Hearthstone is going Wild! Initially, you will be able to draft cards in Arena mode that are exclusive to Wild. Second, even though Tavern Brawl is usually on Wild format, there will be two special Wild Brawls. The first one is called "Venture Into the Wild" and it will just contain premade Wild decks for each class. The second one, "The Wild Brawlisseum", is basically a Wild Heroic Tavern Brawl, but with a major improvement: the first run will be free for everyone. You can read more about Wildfest here.
      Below you can read the patch notes, which describe all the updates as well as various bug fixes. A massive change is that the timer for the first two turns will now be shorter!

Players at Legend reset to rank 4, 0 stars. All ranks will have 5 stars. Starting in March, you will no longer earn the monthly card back by reaching Rank 20.

Three losses and your run comes to an end. Your first Brawliseum run is free! Additional runs are available for the same price as Arena tickets. Also like the Arena, prizes are based on number of wins, and follow the Arena reward structure.
