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

      Various bosses from The Witchwood's Monster Hunt are ready to battle it out in this week's brand new Tavern Brawl.
      This is the first special Tavern Brawl that we will see during this year's Hallow's End.
      You just queue up and you get assigned a random boss from the Monster Hunt. Some of these bosses include:
      Azalina Soulthief (Hero Power: 2 mana - Summon three 1/1 Wisps) Blood Witch Greta (Passive Hero Power: Spells cost Health instead of Mana) Brushwood Centurion (Hero Power: 3 mana - All minions attack random enemy minions) Chupacabran (Hero Power: 1 mana - Give a friendly minion +1/+1 and Lifesteal) Plaguemaster Rancel (Hero Power: 2 mana - Deal 2 damage to a minion. If it survives, give it Poisonous) Shudderwock (Passive Hero Power - All Battlecries trigger twice) Winslow Tobtock (Hero Power: 2 mana - Each player shuffles their hand into their decks and draws that many cards) Wharrgarbl (Hero Power: 2 mana - Draw 3 Murlocs from your deck) Experiment 3C (Hero Power: 1 mana - Destroy a friendly minion and draw 3 cards) It's not sure how many bosses there are available, but they certainly have similar decks as during the PvE adventure. It might be worth checking our Monster Hunt guide to refresh your memory on some of their abilities or just experience them in action!

      Hallow's End is going to last from October 17 until October 31.
      As we've already discussed, you can log in to enjoy the spooky festivities and receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron.
      You will also get a free Arena entry ticket in order to test your mettle in the Dual Class Arena. Pick a Hero, choose the Hero Power of a second Hero and try to make the perfect mix with the combined might of both Heroes' class cards.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end: Monster Smash (October 17-22) and The Headless Horseman Rides Again (October 24 - 29)!
      Lastly, for a limited time you can purchase the new Paladin hero, Sir Annoy-o, as a Bundle along with 20 Witchwood packs at the price of $19.99 or 19.99 EUR. This mighty new hero even has his own backstory which you can read here.
      Later today, we should also see the balance changes go live.

      The update will take effect on October 18.
      Well, the balance changes were smaller than expected as only three cards were affected this time.
      As expected, Giggling Inventor was affected as it now costs 7 mana, up from 5. The team actually considered it too powerful for 6 mana, which raises the question why it was 5 mana in the first place. Anyway, it still remains an odd card if this is still relevant.

      Now, a big and unexpected change was Mana Wyrm being raised to 2 mana. The iconic Classic minion has undergone the Tunnel Trogg treatment and after 4+ years of power, it is ready to retire.

      And a Wild change to alleviate the devastating Druid combo: Aviana will now cost 10 mana. This means she can't be played at the same turn as Kun the Forgotten King and Juicy Psychmelon won't be able to draw both Kun the Forgotten King and Aviana with it.

      The update will go live on October 18th with the weekly reset. What do you guys think about the changes?

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!
