The Shattered Sun Cleric is only a 3/2, not a 3/3 monster anymore.

Thank you. Should be fixed now.

Just got to Rank 20 easily by using that deck! I just lost once, but that was due to me playing bad. Thanks for the deck, I'll now set out and get the crafting for the Low Budget deck started. (:

This deck was awful. Just went 1-12 with it. It has no early game what soever and cannot compete with any type of damage dealing. It is only effective if you can get extremely lucky with your cards and the other person has no anti minion. Honestly terrible.

I'm just not sure how you can say that this deck has no early game. 18 out of its 30 cards cost 3 or less mana (and among those, only a few could even be argued to be situational cards).

 

If you went 1-12 with this deck, I can only see two possible scenarios:

 

1) You faced predominantly opponents with very strong decks (with many rare, epic, and possibly even legendary cards). If this is the case, there's really not much you can do. Remember that this is a Basic-only deck, and it does in no way propose to be a rival to decks with access to non-Basic cards.

 

2) You played the deck sub-optimally. This is very often the case, and the cause for a lot of "bad deck" complaints. If you could be a bit more specific, or ideally if you could provide some video footage of a few of your games, I'm sure I could be more helpful.

 

Best regards.

I disenchanted a bunch of epics and my only legendary to build this deck. 

 

Please dont make the same mistake I did. Very luck based deck that will get trumped by 9/10 rush decks. Only case it works is if your opponent fails to counter.

 

 

Very very bad.. thanks for wasting my 600 dust ...

You... disenchanted cards to craft a... basic deck? I don't understand how that's possible. This deck costs 0 (zero) Arcane Dust to craft. Every player who has a level 10 Priest has this deck.

Hi Vlad, ok, so I am going to try this game out.  I am trying to find the deck info, heck any info, but I am not having any luck.  sad.png  I am probably not looking in the correct place.  Please point me in the right direction.  Thanks.

I'm not exactly sure what you are having difficulty with, but I'll try to help you out.

 

First, get the Battle.net launcher thingy (from your battle.net account), which allows you to launch and play Hearthstone.

 

Then, once in-game, follow the tutorial (it's strictly linear so you can't go wrong) until you're done with it. This will have unlocked you the Mage class, and all the Neutral Basic cards in the game.

 

Then, go to "My Collection" and create a new deck for the Mage class. In that deck, include all the cards you have from this deck (replace the ones you are missing with cards such as Senjin Shieldmasta and War Golem). Using this new Mage deck, play against the AI ("Practice") and defeat other classes in order to unlock them too.

 

From then on, it should be fairly obvious how to continue. Use the "My Collection" menu to create and edit decks.

 

If you have any difficulties, don't hesitate to ask.

I think you might have a troll problem...i was also dumbfounded by that poster who supposedly disenchanted cards to build the basic deck that requires 0 dust to create....very suspect. Perhaps he's from a rival website?

Very cool Deck! 

started with it from rank 25 and went easily to rank 10. With only 3 minor changes (no legendary). For starters one of the best decks that you can have!

Thanks a lot

hey all,

 

I first tried this deck a few weeks ago (europe) and found some things lacking, so I changed some (with non-basic cards) and started winning. So far no problem.

Then today trying my improved deck and I lost bigtime! So, I went back to the basic and, voila, apart form extreme adversaries (excelent decks) I fared very well. Mind you, only the basics you guys show here!

Just goes to show that the meta game has some influence on what is a good deck!

 

Good job. The deck is balanced en works very well, dispite changes in the metagame.

Just wondering on what changes would be most optimal when switching in expert cards. I got these expert cards that could be used:

 

Faceless, Knife Juggler, Acolyte, Harvest Golem, Azure Drake x2, Temple Enforcer, Inner Fire, Sunfury Protector x2, Silver Hand Knight and Argent Commander.

 

Already made this switch:

 

Ogre-> Temple Enforcer

 

So all in all, wondering what the better switches would be with my cards.

This is a really fantastic deck, and the first one I'd point any new player to who just finished the tutorials and is looking for the first class to play after Mage.  It's also a good skeleton that's easily tweakable (i.e. Croc -> Sunfury Protector) once the good cards start rolling in.

 

Thanks.

Deck is great but I made a few tweeks. Drooped boulder fist for a storm wind and org magi. Tossed out a few draw cards for +1 spell cards. Its a game changer when holy Nova hits for 3 instead of 2

So after my tweeks I'm running into problems. What can I drop for spell power cards. I think that the #1 spell power cards are more vital then the draw cards. We have the cleric for draw cards during healing. Overall I'm face rolling damn near everyone. Why are priests ranked so low?!!! P.s bump

You can easily take out 1 Mindcontrol and 2 Novice Engineer, however Spellpower in Priests is generally weak - it effects only Holy Smite and Holy Nova. These cards may seem decent with Spellpower, however the minions that provide it will be inferior to your opponent's, which will cause you new problems.

Priests in are played in ranked, however compared to some other classes, Priest indeed appears weak sometimes.

A very nice deck, I made some changes due to I have some other cards which I prefer.

 

I took out:

Holy Smite * 2

Novice Engineer * 2

Gurubashi Berserker * 2

Ogre * 2

 

Place in:

Inner Fire * 1

DS * 1

Acolyte of Pain * 2

Injured Blademaster * 1

Lightspawn * 1

Azure Drake * 1

Cairne Bloodhoof * 1

 

I personally prefer acolyte of pain instead of nov eng, this is due to I try to gain early draw power/control power. DS+inner fire works great to buff my mob when I need finisher.

I try to enhance my draw power, both northshire/aop can be play with 3mana in early of game(Usually I can have very good drawing power unless I really have 0 Powerword/AoP/Northshire for 5rounds), I will try to control with spell and low cost mob, MC comes in for late control/finish, DS+IF for finisher.

 

Any suggestion from Mod to further enhance my deck?

I saw someone refer to a budget priest deck - I can create the free deck, but now that I have some more cards, and dust - I'd be curious as to that budget or even a ladder deck. 

 

Is there a central listing of all basic, budget, and ladder decks?  I got here via an article that cited this deck and provided a link to the free deck (eurogamer.net) -- I'd appreciate a more general reference, if there is one?

 

Thank you! smile.png

      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      We kicked off this new series by analyzing a tricky situation which had only one optimal line of play. In episode two we'll take a look at a very different kind of situation, one where there might not be a perfect move at all.
      Please let us know in the comments what you would have done in this situation! One of the primary goals of this series is to foster improvement at Hearthstone by generating discussions. We would also love to hear your feedback on the video itself, as the series is still very new and has plenty room to improve on its format.

      In the latest Hearthstone update, Blizzard made adjustments to several cards. The patch is now live now on desktop and it should become available on mobile devices in the coming hours.
      Philosophy and reasons behind these changes can be found here.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Card Changes
      Innervate now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2)
      Fiery War Axe now costs 3 mana.  (Up from 2)
      Hex now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3)
      Murloc Warleader now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health)
      Spreading Plague now costs 6 mana. (Up from 5)

      A new Brawl has landed in the Tavern.
      Just like with the previous expansions, it's time to try out the deck recipes of Knights of the Frozen Throne in this week's Tavern Brawl. The archetypes for each deck recipe are the following:
      Druid: I guess the best name for this deck is Midrange Druid. It has Ultimate Infestation and Spreading Plague, so... PROFIT?! Deathrattle Hunter Elemental Mage Divine Shield Paladin Control Priest (you've probably seen variations of it in ladder) Jade Deathrattle Rogue Freeze Shaman Zoolock Control Warrior with Enrage minions This is a good opportunity to try out cards that you don't own. Good luck and have fun!

      The balance patch is arriving in the beginning of the next week.
      The wait is over! The anticipated card balance changes will arrive on September 18th and hopefully freshen up the meta a little bit. As the case always is with balance patches, for the next two weeks if you disenchant Spreading Plague and/or Murloc Warleader, you will get their full value in Arcane Dust.
      Daxxarri
      In the recent Upcoming Balance Changes – Update 9.1 blog, we discussed the details and philosophy behind balance updates that are coming to several Hearthstone cards:
       
      Innervate - Now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2) Fiery War Axe - Now costs 3 mana. (Up from 2) Hex - Now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3) Murloc Warleader - Now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health) Spreading Plague - Now costs 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      This patch is currently targeted for September 18th PDT. Please note that updates for mobile devices may take a few additional hours to propagate.

      Once these card changes are live, players will be able to disenchant cards that are not Basic (Murloc Warleader and Spreading Plague) for their full Arcane Dust value for two weeks. Basic cards cannot be disenchanted and will not be available for an Arcane Dust refund. (source)
