Hey :)

If your are running low on dust crafting a Legend is always a hard choice. I can't tell you which you should craft but what to think about:

  • Do you enjoy the class enough to invest 1600 dust? (if you want to craft a class legend)
  • In how many different kind of decks does it fit?
  • How long will it stay? (Lyra will be in standard for a while and is still good, Velen and Ysera are timeless but Raza will rotate out somewhere in April)
  • Have you thought about other legends you might use in more decks?

And just for your information you can use the "Import Deck" feature. It auto includes links for the cards and removes the unnecessary stuff ;)

Ok thanks! I've gotten Ysera from Free From Ember and she saved me quite a few times. On the other hand, I've never used lyra before. I'm not sure to get Ysera or lyra. Judging  from my deck, which do u recommend, Ysera or Lyra?

To be honest I'm not the biggest fan of the priest class, especially since that stupid raza+anduin combo came up.

Better you wait for a suggestion made by a more priest competent player :)

But what I can see from your deck list, I have no idea how the rest of your collection looks like, but it's made mostly of common and basic cards. Nothing wrong with that but maybe to invest 1600 into one card might not be the best choice. For the same amount of dust you could get four crucial epic cards like Shadow Visions for example.

I recommend crafting Raza the Chained. I don't see why so many people think that when a card rotates out, it loses all of its value. The stigmatisation of wild is in my opinion mostly unfounded, as time has shown that it is standard that gets out of control, not wild. However, if you really don't want to start playing wild, I'd suggest waiting for the K&C meta to see whether a new deck pops up that appeals to you more than control priest.

I didn't want to say it loses value the cards will still be with us for several months, but for a player (if playing standard) who is new and/or has very limited resources it's worth a thought whether to craft a legend that will rotate out in a foreseeable time or to get one (s)he can use after that time.

For Wild: I agree that standard gets worse. And different players have different preferences and they are all legitimate, imo. My main reason not to play wild is, there are a lot of cards which see a lot of play and I hate them. I was so happy when Reno rotated out and will be happy about the next rotation, especially about MSG rotating out which provided to much cancer and imbalanced stuff. Of course I will miss a few nice cards but overall I will be happy.

      Been loosing to secret mages a lot lately. Anyway to counter them? The spells they have are annoying and they are able to kill of my big minions using fireball, polymorph etc. How do you counter them?

      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 :)

      So, I'm currently maining Blood DK and that's the spec that I've gotten my 4 legends on. I do occasionally use UH and was wondering which of my legends would be most effective for it. Just a foreword, all of the gear that the legends replace is about equal; all 915-920 and don't cause any major stat changes so its not like using one legend over another causes me to use a bad piece. I have Soul of the Deathlord, which is the one I use most on UH, and I have  Shackles of Bryndaor, Archimonde's Hatred Reborn, and Prydaz, Xavaric's Magnum Opus. Does the Shackles passive work on UH, if so, could that be a better boost for Val'kyr[Dark Arbiter Talent] (b/c you can cycle more RP)? Other than that I'm just wondering which out weighs the other, STR or the secondaries?
      Edit: and just in case it makes a difference, my talent build is;

      Hello everyone! I got hooked by the Heathrstone and want to get better at it, but could anyone tell me how to craft more cards? Like I got tired of selling low cards and they dont give me a lot of credits. So far I have build the Secret Mage deck and love it. Could anyone suggest any other hero to begin with? Thank You!
