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?

My apologies, I mean why Wild Pyromancer isn't on the list for General Crafting guide. It has been used in so many priest list.

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.

      Two new cards were revealed by Asian streamers: an Epic neutral minion and the Paladin Spirit.
      The first card was unveiled by Chinese streamer LaLaLa on Douyu.

      The first thought that comes when looking at this card is that it's great support for Quest Hunter. The problem is support cards for this archetype were printed in previous expansions and the result was always the same. Untamed Beastmaster could definitely fit into a Beast deck along with Oondasta - and since they are both Neutral cards, this doesn't necessarily have to be Hunter. Hi'reek, the Warlock Loa, and his copies could benefit from the +2/+2 buff. Untamed Beastmaster could also find its place in a Beast Druid deck with minions like Charged Devilsaur and Tyrantus. These Warlock and Druid combos, though, sound a bit like win-more situations.
      The Paladin Spirit was revealed by Korean streamer (and dancer) Rhdgurwn.

      The text box may not be the final version as "stats equal to its Cost" is a bit vague, since it could mean a 4/4 or a 3/1 or a 1/3 or a 2/2. However, it would make sense that if you cast a 4-mana spell, the Spirit would summon a 4/4 Tiger and that's how we are going to treat it. At 4 mana, this different version of Summoning Stone seems a bit slow and definitely promotes a more Spell Control-oriented playstyle, which is what Paladin seems to be heading to in Rastakhan's Rumble. It definitely makes for a strong combo with Spikeridged Steed.

      It turns out that Dragon Warrior is definitely going to return in Rastakhan's Rumble and the Warrior Legendary Champion is proof of that!
      The card was revealed in the third episode of the Wronchi Animations series of videos for Rastakhan's Rumble (here is Part 1 and Part 2). Krag'wa the Frog is literally swallowing the opponent Annoy-o-trons, when War Master Voone shows up, astounding Garrosh in the audience.
      The video has an older version of the card, since it looks like the team decided that the final version of Voone is actually a 4-mana 4/3:

      The wording is slightly vague, but the copies are added to your hand. As shown in the video, this could work great with The Boomship. However, if you are playing expensive Dragons, I don't see how useful it would be to have more copies of them unless you are absolutely sure that the game is going to last long enough so you can play them all. There's also the problem that currently in Standard there aren't that many powerful Dragons and we've yet to see any new ones in Rastakhan's Rumble. Other than that, War Master Voone and the newly revealed Firetree Witchdoctor can work great in a Dragon Warrior deck and let it be noted that they are both Even cards.

      The Rogue Legendary Loa has just been unveiled!
      The reveal was made by MKRR3 on YouTube. The video is in Polish.

      Gral, the Shark can potentially draw you a minion but it is quite weak to Silence. Still, Rogue has quite a few ways to trigger the Deathrattle and now with Spirit of the Shark, it can trigger the Battlecry twice as well. At first sight, though, it feels like a weak card: Silence destroys it, high mana cost and Rogue traditionally runs quite a few small minions as well. It also doesn't seem to fit with the Pirate theme Rogue will have in Rastakhan's Rumble, altough perhaps we can see Beast Rogue with Oondasta and the recently revealed Untamed Beastmaster.
      What do you people think about this card?
    • By Zadina
      It seems that Dragons will have a big part in Rastakhan's Rumble as this versatile and cheap Neutral minion can Discover a spell if you are holding a Dragon!
      Hafu revealed this card on YouTube:

      We haven't seen any Dragons revealed so far, but it's safe to assume that they will have some kind of presence in Rastakhan's Rumble. People are already thinking that Dragon Warrior might be a thing, due to the reveal of Smolderthorn Lancer. The Discover component of this card makes it very versatile and probably a staple in Dragon decks to come, since it's undeniable that Dragons will keep being printed in future expansions. The potential is definitely there, but without having seen any other Dragons from the upcoming expansion it's difficult to talk about which classes Firetree Witchdoctor can find a home in.

      As the trend is in latest expansions, we have yet another minion that supports the Healing/Control Paladin archetype.
      The card was revealed by PhenomenGames on YouTube. The video is in Russian.

      (Source: Official Site)
      Paladin gets its own version of Hooked Reaver. It's not clear whether you need to restore Health on your hero or you can just heal any minion for this to work. A lot of cards have been printed in the latest expansions that promote this archetype of Paladin deck (even though Aggro Paladin always ends up winning) and maybe it is its time to shine. Other than that, Zandalari Troll Paladins are soon coming to World of Warcraft and it's good to see them in Hearthstone as well!
