This deck is very hard to play, but when you master it, it is truly rewarding. If you aren't experienced enough in Hearthstone, the deck will have a very low winrate due to its difficulty. I recommend either playing the deck over and over until you get sufficient experience with it, or play other decks and then come back to the deck later.

Fun deck, but that's a tough win condition to get consistently.  Maybe when the meta stabilizes it will be more productive, but who knows.  I really want to work in Antonidas with waygate, but can't seem to make him fit in standard.

This deck is very bad against aggro, if somehow u dont get the crucial spells u're done. When rogue gets his 5/5s at turn 6/7, theres literally nothing u can do.

Please don't put coldlight oracles into this deck. Any kind of draw except that. Right now in the meta every single deck benefits as much or more than this deck from draw.

Thats weird, cuz i am actually ranking up with this thing (16th rank only yet tho). That satisfaction smashing opponent like this totally outweights the spent dust/low winrate. I had to switch the 1/1s: draw a card for a volcanic potion, because my hand were constantly full and i have had a really hard time dealing with hunters. Keep trying, totally worth it.

Not really, as it gives you both tempo and the much needed draw. If you do face a ton of aggro decks, you could swap them for second Blizzard and a second Babbling Book.

As others are saying it really does have a high learning curve. I just botched one game but still would have won through the Quest + spell draw set up. In the end I overdrew my cards and got killed from fatigue right after playing Timewarp. A bit more practice and I get how it would be really intense.

I just played against this combo for the first time. I admire your creativity, but this deck is very frustrating to play against. You have successfully combined the time consuming and depressing freeze/ice block mechanics with an infinite fireball one-turn-kill trick. Again, I give you props for your effective strategy, but I honestly hope this gets nerfed like OTK warrior once did :|

Coldlight is only really bad against quest rogue. But as I often struggled with to many cards in hand to play the tome efficiently, I exchanged one copy for a kabal courier for another discover effect that most of the time generates a useful card and sometimes even a very good spell.

I just played my ridiculous ramp druid I use to complete the overpowered quest and played against quest mage. Took my opponent to fatigue to complete the setup. Here is what the win condition looks like if you're having trouble envisioning it

That is a horrific sight if you're on the other side of that barrel.  Thanks for the share and sorry for your lose. :P lol

@KingMe don't be. It was a great game. Just casual and I got to play 9 out of 10 cards to complete the daily quest since it ran so long. I considered it a win. It was also the first time I had seen the infinite fireball. I thought it was hilarious

That's the spirit. :) One day I will sit down and test this deck more thoroughly.

Executing final combo is soooo satisfying. ;) Hard though. ;p Deck is great agains control decks like quest warrior and pretty weak against aggro like pirate warrior, so its hard to mulligan well when you compete against warriors. Matches are long and you need to think much what card do you want to play and how to manage your hand. Thats why its bad deck to climb the ladder.

Yeah, it's more of a fun deck than regular ladder deck. You could tryhard the deck, but there are certainly way better decks to play. Glad you're having fun with it!

      Winter Veil begins next week on Hearthstone and a special Tavern Brawl will award three Knights of the Frozen Throne card packs.
      Next week's Tavern Brawl will be really similar to the Gift Exchange one back from 2015 and February 2017. There will be some differences though, as the Brawl will have a Kobold flavour and it will have a new name: Wacky Waxy Winter Veil's Brawl.
      As Winter Veil is a frosty season, the reward will obviously be three packs from Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion. It's not sure if the Winter Veil Wreath card back, which was associated with the Gift Exchange brawl during the previous years' Winter Veils, will be available this time to those who don't already have it.
      Blizzard Entertainment
      ‘Tis the season! In celebration of Winter’s Veil—and to give all you adventurers something to do that doesn’t involve taking candles—Greatfather Kobold has prepared a special distraction, er, Winter’s Veil tavern brawl packed with wacky, waxy gifts!
      These treats aren’t just on the game board! The reward for winning your first game of this Tavern Brawl is THREE festively frosty Knights of the Frozen Throne card packs! 
      Greatfather Kobold’s helpers have been busy decorating the Orgrimmar game board for the tavern brawl, but you can also experience the holiday in Stormwind while enjoying other play modes. And no matter how you play, don’t forget to show your opponent some holiday spirit with the return of the Happy Winter’s Veil greeting emote!
      The Rules
      Greatfather Kobold will drop off some tastefully wrapped, candle-bearing gifts on turn one—four on each side of the board, for a total of eight. If you unwrap a gift, you’ll receive a Legendary minion that costs three fewer mana to play! Greatfather Kobold will keep the celebration going by periodically parachuting in more presents. Don’t be greedy, though! You’ll only get a discounted Legendary minion from the gifts Greatfather Kobold left on your opponent’s side of the field.
      How will you build your deck to make the most of these potent presents?
      The Wacky Waxy Winter’s Veil brawl begins December 20 and lasts through December 24, so be sure to drop in and celebrate!
      A very Happy Winter’s Veil to you and yours! (source)
      For now, you can enjoy this week's Tavern Brawl, which is Valeera's Bag of Burgled Spells.

      Following the tradition started with Knights of the Frozen Throne, Kobolds & Catacombs gets its first digital comic.
      "Up Comes Down" is a lighthearted story about two Kobolds, who decide to go off on their own despite the orders of King Togwaggle. In their short adventure in the Catacombs, they encounter many obstacles, but by cooperating they manage to emerge victorious.

      You can read and/or download the comic here.

      Can you find the best move in a deck full of cards from the new set?
      The first episode of WTM since the release of Kobolds & Catacombs, Aleco plays a "Big Spells Dragon Priest" deck full of brand of new cards.
      Kobolds and Catacombs has hit the competitive ladder with a bang, bringing it with it an unprecedented number of impactful new cards. Some cards have come as huge surprises (Spiteful Summoner, Corridor Creeper), others have been performing about as well as expected (Duskbreaker, Twilight Acolyte), and all four of these powerful new KnC cards are featured in the deck I've had the most success with over the past four days - Sattelite's Big Spells Dragon Priest. The deck has a ton of play to it and never fails to produce difficult decisions and interesting situations, such as the one I found myself in here:
      "What's the Move?" is now seeking viewer submissions for the future episodes. If you ever find yourself in a sticky situation on the ladder, please feel free to submit your plays, questions, and feedback to Aleco on twitter.
