There are three Legendary Priest Decks there and the second one utilizes a tinkmaster overspark. After the nerf I don't think tinkmaster is a good pick. Not sure if it wasn't updated or just a mistake but maybe you could look into it. The other two circle of healing and taunters legendary decks are pretty solid. I have problem deciding which one to use. I tried the taunters legendary deck and I am doing okay. 3 wins out of 7 games in rank 14. Not sure if I should give circle of healing a go.

I see three legendary control priest decks. The circle of healing control deck looks good but I have not tried it. I tried the taunters control deck and it is not able to control the board  early. I lost a lot of game with this deck because i just could control the board early. The legendary control priest seems like a good deck but i think having tinkmaster in the deck after the big nerf is a bad idea. There are many other cards that can be included instead of tinkmaster.

We had a communication problem with Poyo, he provided us with two new Legendary decks and we assumed that they were meant to be added to the website, but one of them (the Taunters one) was supposed to replace our old Legendary deck. Anyway, this is fixed now. Thanks for raising the issue.

Idk, that legendary deck looks a little shakeyto me. It's got 5 cards that cost 7. I don't usually attack first few turns anyways. I usually use minions and boost their health and attack so I can heal rapidly and draw a shit ton of cards. But this deck eschew I don't know what I would do with that.

There are 2 legendary decks. Which one are you referring to?

Also, you can always give it a try. :) Although generally there is a reason why you cannot see THAT many priests in ranked play. If you want to see some gameplays I'd suggest searching for Amaz who plays priest ranked on his streams.

Hey, Sottle! I would love to see a priest mech deck. I know priest is not the class that utilizes the synergy mechs give, but its just so fun to play mech decks with all the classes and all my decks come from icy veins. I just love to see them success! Thanks.

P.S. Also, which server do you play in? If you play in europe can you add me? Ath0ran#2100 :D

Yeah Mech Priest well definitely end up being done at some point, I don't think it's a top class competitive option, but it's good enough to do a guide on for people that want to play it.

I am a little surprised that [card]Wild Pyromancer[/card] isn't on the list. Is it because the card is just too situational to justify crafting them in general?

The Crafting lists are way out of date, and weren't updated by the old writer. I've actually revamped all of them over the course of the weekend and the updates should be up soon.

Hi.  Can you add a comments link to the Dragon Priest guide?  I am struggling with it especially against demonlock, and unfortunately for me, 4 of my 6 matches this morning were against Locks (went 1-5 this morning with it after a quick 3-0 druid start).  Anyhow, I'd appreciate it if you could add a comments section to it because I'd love to discuss what I'm doing wrong.

Sottle, Ty for the update to the priest crafting guide. Looking for advice on what legendary to craft next. Trying to decide between Vol'jin, Boom, Harrison, Chillmaw, and Ysera (or perhaps another card you recommend). I have BrM and Naxx expansion and all of the cards in your priest crafting guide (except Vol'jin and Boom). Priest is my main and I usually run control priest, but have started playing dragon priest occasionally with success. For my control priest, I usually substitute the slot for Boom with my Ragnaros. I don't have Harrison, so I substitute the slot for Harrison with either my Loatheb or Azure Drake. I don't have Chillmaw or Ysera, so for Dragon Priest, I substitute the slots for Chillmaw and Ysera with my Alex and Draknoid Crusher (they seem to combo well together as finisher). I have a fairly well rounded/developed deck for all the characters, unfortunately I have some key holes. Advice appreciated! Don't worry I won't hold you to it. Ty!

hey, yeah I was just asking. i.e. if you thought it needed some tweaks or rebalancing due to the new cards.

 

btw any cheap-ish decks with tgt would be cool to see too!

All the "Cheap" (<1000 dust) decks have been updated to either include TGT cards, or have been approved that nothing from the set improves them. The Basic decks don't really change with new sets as their gameplan is quite straightforward due to the simple nature of the effective Basic cards. Outside of that, there are 6 other decks that have been uploaded for < 2000 dust. Should be plenty for you to be getting on with for now :P

I made a deck surrounding life gain and heal such as : Power word glory, Holy champion and Tournament medic. it has a nice playstyle and to top it of i use Justicar Trueheart and Emperor for the faster plays and bigger heals. Even using Kvaldir and Muklas champion. Seems to work quite fine on ladder  *rank 14* but i would really like some hints to make this into a legit decklist. And im a scrub so i dont know how to punt a print of my decklist here so ^^

Do you have any finishers and enough proactive plays? Does your deck have enough independent cards that can be played if you don't draw into your combos? Do you have a backup if your combo fails (eg. your medic/champion gets silenced)? Is the deck consistent enough? Well, to be honest, getting stuck on rank 14 while not being extremely limited by budget is bad. Either your deck doesn't work "quite fine" or you make bad plays. You should work on your deck more or maybe think about using a working deck such as Grinder priest because it probably is in the same budget group.

If I understand your last sentence, you want to upload your deck to this site. Well, you can't. All the decks are either made and tested by Sottle or netdecked and thoroughly tested by Sottle. This site offers only the best decks (and Randuin Wrynn) and great budget decks. If everyone was able to upload, this site would be simply mess. You can, however, try to upload it to a different site and hope for the best.

      Dave Kosak is here with a new Hearthside Chat to talk about Dungeon Runs. He also showcased a new 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:

      Images from Hearthpwn
      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.

      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.

      The 2016 Hearthstone World Champion revealed this rare Druid card.
      Grizzled Guardian was unveiled on Pavel's YouTube channel. It's a rare Druid Beast, that costs 8 mana and has 3 attack and 5 health. It has Taunt and Deathrattle: "Recruit 2 minions that cost (4) or less". Pavel's video is in Russian, but you can enable accurate English subtitles to see what the World Champion has to say about that card.
      After watching Pavel's video, I am convinced that Grizzled Guardian isn't as bad as it looks at first sight. Sure, its stats are garbage, but you should also factor in the stats of the minions it pulls from your deck when it dies. Still, it's hard to see it fit into the current meta. Perhaps, it can see play when the Year of the Kraken sets rotate out of Standard. It also weakens the 8-mana slot for Evolve and similar effect.
      What's your opinion on Grizzled Veteran? As always, all the cards of the new expansion can be found in our Kobolds & Catacombs hub.
      PS: Turns out it's not Hogger 3.0 :(

      The newest Legendary Shaman minion has me shaking in my boots. Is this the card that will put Elemental Shaman over the top?
      Chinese Hearthstone streamer Snowkiss has revealed the Legendary Shaman minion from K&C. This bad boy appears to pack quite the punch - my mind is already racing with potential combos and synergies for Grumble, World Shaker:

      Card image courtesy of Hearthpwn.com
      Elementals have plenty of powerful Battlecry triggers which Grumble could play for a second time. Kalimos, Primal Lord, Servant of Kalimos, Blazecaller, and Jade Spirit immediately come to mind as potent synergies for the shaker of worlds. Grumble could also be used to double down of Jade cards such as Jade Chieftain and Aya Blackpaw, or could even be used to recycle the Battlecry triggers of the old gods. All of this on a 7/7 for 6 mana? Sign me up!
      Is this the card that Elemental Shaman has been waiting for? Let us know what you think about Grumble in the comment section, and check out our Kobolds and Catacombs hub for more information on the upcoming set.
