This deck is forcing me to play Wild?  Is that a bug?  I can't figure out which card or cards it thinks is out of date from an older expansion.

Switch the deck to Standard by hovering over or tapping the deck icon while having the deck open and selecting the Convert to Standard option. All wild cards, if any, will turn red.

I played this and lost 5 out of 6.... they are literally beating me up  very quickly or with massive minions towards the end.

To be honest, 6 games is a very small sample, especially for a harder deck like this one. Play the deck more, get more experience with it and you will see your winrate going up.

If hypothetically the meta slows down (because druid), what should I replace the tech cards with? Because this deck loses to a lot of control from the games I've played, simply because they out-value me.

Try The Lich King and/or Obsidian Statue. That should improve your late-game significantly, as The Lich King can be a win condition by himself, and Obsidian Statue will heal you up and clear the board, but the change will obviously weaken your early game.

Tried the deck for a long daily quest and got mixed impressions.It gets beaten up pretty wildly by aggro decks if you can't control the early game with a constant flow of spells or if the mulligan doesn't bring the proper initial cards.In mid- and late game stages it behaves interestingly good but one has to curve out really carefully depending on the opposing deck.Some pleasant draw surprises may win an easy game but altogether i would not recommend it for the ladder if you aren't a keen priest player. 

The sample was around 20 games (11-9 W/L) and i am not so used to priest decks.

Quite some priests I encountred had a different deck then the suggested decks here.

It was with Kazakus too (that is it was a Highlander deck), but it used some High-Value Minions like Ysera + The Lich King + Obsidian Statue

Combined with Barnes and sometimes Shadow Essence. All 3 minions mentioned above are incredible strong even with 1/1. And then they used  Eternal Servitude. it is totally possible of having to deal with something like The Lich King on turn 6 already

And with Shadow Visions they can get Eternal Servitude a second time - and you'll have to face high value minions maybe three times in one game!.

It was always a strong deck against my Jade-Druid and I lost quite some games to it.

I have no idea how it works against aggro (maybe you get slaughtered, I don't have the whole decklist to evaluate that).

But I am curious why I haven't seen this deck in your lists.

Its called "Big Priest" afaik. @WedgeAntilles

Its a luck thing imho, you need to get Barnes and wll otherwise be probably crushed by an aggro deck since you tend to skip the first turns and just heal.

Looking forward to try it out by myself.

Thx for the input - it is a combination of Highlander and Big Priest.

BigPriest runs the minions / spells I mentioned, but uses two of them (and that's why obviously not Kazakus or Shadowreaper Anduin combined with Raza the Chained)

IMO the combination of Shadowreaper Anduin and Raza the Chained is insane. Using your heropower 4 or 5 times in one turn? Dealing 8 or 10 damage to whatever you like? That's huge.

      Dave Kosak is here with a new Hearthside Chat to talk about Dungeon Runs. He also showcased a legendary card from the new expansion!
      We've already talked about Dungeon Runs, one of the new features that Kobolds & Catacombs will bring. Lead Mission Designer Dave Kosak explains in this latest Hearthside Chat the design process behind Dungeon Runs.
      Dave presented some unique elements only present in Dungeon Runs. For example, there is a card you can pick called Cloak of Invisibility, which has a Passive effect of giving your minions permanent Stealth.
      He also gave some insight on the encounters. Some Dungeon Runs can have thematic encounters, like there's a band of Troggs or Trolls you will have to beat. As far as the Trolls are concerned, Battlecrier Jin'zo has a passive effect that is similar to Brann Bronzebeard, which you and him can both benefit from! Similarly, Spiritspeaker Azun's passive works like Baron Rivendare for both parties, while Voodoomaster Vex combines both of these passive effects!
      The narrator, that will be guiding you through your Dungeon Run, is King Togwaggle - the king of the Kobolds himself! He is also going to be an actual card available in the next expansion:

      Here's the official blog post with everything you need to know about Dungeon Runs:
      Blizzard Entertainment
      What’s a Dungeon Run?
      Dungeon Run is a new insanely fun, single-player “rogue-like” mode where you’ll face deadly encounters and collect incredible Treasures to build a deck worthy of a hero!
      When your Dungeon Run starts, you’ll choose a Hero and receive a starting deck consisting of 10 cards. You’ll use it to overcome eight encounters of increasing difficulty (chosen randomly from a huge pool of 48 possible encounters!) to clear the run.

      That initial deck might be enough to help you squeak by your first opponent, but you’ll need to get stronger if you hope to clear the whole run. Each time you defeat a Dungeon Run encounter, you’ll be given an opportunity to “level up” your Dungeon Run deck with themed sets of three cards appropriate to your class. Occasionally, you’ll also be able to pick from a selection of three incredibly powerful Treasure cards—non-collectible cards and abilities made just for this mode that are too blatantly overpowered to see normal play.
      You’ll need all that power—as well as your wits—because these encounters can be fiendishly difficult. Victory is not assured, and each encounter has its own unique perils. If one of them gets the better of you, defeat is permanent, so you’ll have to start a different run with a whole new deck!
      If you manage to complete a full Dungeon Run with each of the nine Classes—no mean feat!—you’ll add the Candle King card back to your collection.

      Mage's Spellstone card for hints at a potential Elemental theme for the class in the upcoming set.
      Mage's Spellstone was revealed today by Chinese Hearthstone streamer LvGe, hinting at a potential Elemental theme for the Mage class in K&C:

      Card image courtesy of Hearthpwn.com
      The upgraded versions of Ruby Spellstone will provide an additional random Mage Spell for every two Elementals you can play while this card is in your hand, meaning that this card is capable of becoming a two mana Cabalist's Tome! The lesser version of this spell isn't very enticing, but both of the upgraded versions of Ruby Spellstone seem like quite the deal. Unfortunately, the requirement to upgrade Ruby Spellstone is quite prohibitive and will likely hold this card back from seeing widespread play on the ladder.
      Let us know what you think about Ruby Spellstone in the comment section, and be sure to check out our Kobolds and Catacombs hub for more information on the upcoming set.

      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.
      Total Arcane 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 :)

      In this article, we are covering two new cards: Temporus, a Priest legendary minion, and Benevolent Djinn, a Paladin common minion.
      Benevolent Djinn was revealed earlier today by Thai player Anothersayoran1. The name of the card was officially confirmed by Puffin.

      Image by Hearthpwn.
      It is difficult to judge this card without seeing it in action. It’s comparable to Friendly Bartender: while the Djinn heals for more, its 2 attack value is a bit mediocre for a 3-mana minion. Shaman’s Hot Spring Guardian is slightly better, since it has Taunt and a targeted heal effect. Then again, Djinn also acts like a Taunt, in the sense that your opponent probably has to spend early resources to remove its powerful effect. Both cards, though, are beaten by Tar Creeper.
      This make the Djinn a great anti-aggro tool. Additionally, it synergises well with Blackguard and its Elemental tribe means that maybe we’ll get to see an Elemental Paladin. This is definitely a powerful Arena card. But can it secure a spot in constructed mode? It looks difficult, since Paladin already has some great 3-mana minions.

      This intriguing minion was revealed by Eurogamer. Its sister site, Metabomb, sat down with Peter Whalen and Ben Thompson to talk about this card. Both developers think that Temporus can be run in either the classic OTK Priest (Divine Spirit + Inner Fire) or in two new versions of Dragon Priest: a more midrange one and an OTK one with Malygos. 
      It would be interesting to see what it's interaction is going to be with Brann Bronzebeard. Temporus is a "high risk, high reward" card and, even if you don't like it or it turns out to be bad, you'd still have to commend its design.
