Make it cheap #1 Budget Aggro Priest

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.

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 :)

Since the biggest part of the community, F2P players, were able to improve their collection as time has been going by, their focus changed from budget decks to full decks, and with this change, we had to start focusing on full decks as well, spending less time on budget decks. However, since the change in format, that should no longer be a major issue, as it is easier to provide a big amount of decks,

As for the aggro priest (thanks for the suggestion!), I was told Pesty was going to have a look at it. I'll let you know once I get a yes/no answer from her.

Are there any other budget decks you would like to see? I feel like most of our decks that can have a reasonable budget variation have one, but it's likely I am forgetting something or that we overlooked something, so input is always important for us.

I understand what you mean but on the other hand with the faster release of new expansion a few players might still be happy about some alternative.

If I would start thinking or looking around I would find some other budget decks, I am sure. Maybe I will do that but right now I have none particular decks in mind. 

I know there are some budget versions of high tier decks or a budget version of an existing deck could be easily created and that's ok so far. But I remember when I started and even a while after that when I was looking at the budged version of a high tier deck it always felt a bit like "well, I will try a crappy version of this deck, because I can't do anything else", even after you reach a point where you are able to create a top tier deck you will most likely not be able to afford another one (I know that's how it goes and no one should expect to do so when being a newer player, except for the money-throwers ofc) but you might still have the desire not to play the one deck only and maybe enjoy another class, so I think it would be great to offer a few decks which are entirely different not just a bad copy of an expensive deck. I hope you understand what I mean.

And besides providing affordable decks to newer players or those with less time/money, I think there is a reason why players like Chump try out (and publish videos with) entirely different decks and he usually avoids to show cancer decks on his channel. That's something I really like :)

Personally I'm no longer in need of a budget deck but since I created it, I enjoyed to play that Priest deck here more than any deck I have. Some of the current meta decks have so many epic and legendary cards that you have to take a very close look at them to find the common/rare cards :D

Edit: P.S: That's actually more text then I planned to write.

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      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.
      Healers (Priest, Paladin, Shaman) 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)

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, PUBG, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.
      If you have any further questions please contact us at battletag: Vims#21684
