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

      A new series of posts in the official forums will shed some light into the inner workings of the Hearthstone team. Welcome to Tavern Talk!
      In this first installment, three questions are answered. The first has to do with additional rewards for players who have earned a Golden Hero with every class. Unfortunately, no extra rewards are planned since the team wants new features or rewards to be obtainable by 10% or more of the playerbase.
      Then, we have an update on the new player experience. Team 5 wants to add additional ranks above rank 25 for new players, so they can mostly face each other in their first steps in the ranked ladder. You will be able to only progress forward in these ranks, similarly to what already happens from rank 25 to 20.
      Lastly, we have a double question about using alternate card art and reprinting cards. The team doesn't like the idea of alternate card art, since it makes sense that players associate and remember a specific card from its art. Reprinting cards is something that has been discussed already and it's something they might do in the not-so-near future after careful consideration.

      Ever wondered what goes on behind the closed doors of the tavern? Ava and the crew’s antics aside, the Hearthstone development team works hard on a myriad of tasks to bring you the game you know and love so well. More than that, we also make the time to read about the different issues and questions the community brings to light each day. Welcome to Hearthstone Tavern Talk, where we’ll share with you answers to some of the questions we see in our community!
      Are there any additional rewards for players who have achieved a Golden Hero in every class?
      Usually when we add new features or rewards we like to make something that can be obtained by 10% or more of our players. Only very few of our players have the 9 Golden Heroes, and we feel that’s already pretty awesome by itself.
      Do you have any changes planned for the new player experience?
      We have some small ladder changes that we would like to do at some point, specifically targeted at new players when they first enter the game. The change will add some additional ranks above rank 25 that new players can play through before having to play more invested players. There will only be forward advancement through those ranks, so even if they lose, no one will be able to drop back down.
      What are your thoughts on alternate card art or reprints of cards from earlier sets?
      Alternate card art is something we have avoided because players almost always use art to recognize a card and instantly know what it does. Good gameplay is very important to us so we have avoided adding multiple pieces of art for a single card.
      Reprints are something that we have discussed in the past, but we would want to do so only after careful consideration. We don’t have any specific plans for this in the near future.
      See you at the next edition of Hearthstone Tavern Talk!

      This is the second time this Brawl appears.
      The trend of Tavern Brawls themed after Death Knight Hero Powers continue: last week we had Rise of the Zombeasts, now we have Shadow Reflection.
      In this constructed Brawl, you can craft a deck of any size with cards from your collection. The rest of the deck will consist of Shadow Reflections. Decks consisted of 30 cards (and thus with no Shadow Reflections) can still work, given that Odd Paladin has reportedly been successful (and a total fun breaker).
      Judging from the previous time this Brawl was around, Aggro and OTK decks seems to be more favoured. Some decks that had success were Aggro Mage or Ice Lance Mage, Combo Priest with Radiant Elemental, Hunter with Mechwarper and Metaltooth Leaper and Quest Rogue. This time around a new Warrior deck, which mostly relies on Bring It On!, has surfaced to counter all the Priest Mind Blast madness.
      Good luck and have fun!
