Yeah, wow. What a shitty deck. You have you to be extremely lucky to actually draw all the cards you need to play that taunt combo. Then not to mention my opponent can usually just bring down my wall in just a few turns before I can actually do anything else because of how high cost my cards are. Waste of arcane dust if you ask me. Was doing better with the mid budget hunter aggro deck.

Poyo,

 

I appreciate you fixing some of these Hearthstone decks, However, This one is broken. Please go back to the drawing board and take a look at this one.  Thanks

This deck was initially designed for the meta game that was full of druids and other mid-range / control decks and it performed pretty well, however lately the meta game is extremely aggressive and priest simply doesn't work well in an aggressive environment.

After I've read your comments, I decided to go play and see what could potentially be improved. The deck performed really well as I started with a nice 4:0 win streak, playing against 2 shamans, 1 clueless warrior and a druid, however my odds rapidly changed once I started meeting hunters and other aggressive decks. I dropped below 50% win ratio after 12 games and decided to tech the priest to suit the meta game better and to give you guys a better priest deck.

This is what I've come up with:

2x Circle of Healing
2x Power Word: Shield
1x Shadow Word: Pain 
2x Acidic Swamp Ooze
2x Sunfury Protector
2x Wild Pyromancer
2x Shadow Word: Death
2x Injured Blademaster
1x Shadow Madness

2x Auchenai Shadowpriest

2x Sen'jin Shieldmasta
2x Holy Nova
1x Faceless Manipulator
1x Holy FIre
1x Ragnaros
1x Ysera

The deck started performing really well and I managed to bump my win ratio back - went 15:7 with this version. This deck lost majority of the "taunt" combo, which makes this deck similar to the other version of our legend priest deck and we will most likely be removing one unless I come up with something better in the next few days.

If any of you guys will be trying the decklist that I've posted, let me know how it goes for you and we will update the deck based on the feedback you guys provide.

Thanks,
Regards,
Poyo

What a great answer to some quite unfriendly posts. I applaud your diplomacy as well as your deck building; great job, Poyo!

Poyo,

 

Thanks for the input. I wasn't meaning to be rude if thats how it came off. I'm very appreciative of the work and information you do here on icy veins.  This deck is fairing much better.

Im running the first version of the deck and i have to say it works still, haves a lot of ways to control the game , im right know in a 10/0 ranked winning streak since i made it (yesterday) , i dont know if later on it will get shitty but for me (currently in rank17) works. thanks Poyo (i will also try the other version later on)

I dont have ysera or rags.  any advice on replacements?

i dont have rags  and i sort of replaced it with demolisher, and added a knife juggler, but it really cant compare to a rag, saving the dust for it.

I am using this with exception of substituting 1sunfury protector for defender if argus and 1 shadow word death for shadow word pain. The key for me is to wait until I am generating 4-5 mama before playing cards unless I need to do a quick take out. When I am willing to accept some upfront damage to ensure I have the correct card combos I am wining 4 out of 5. Thanks for the deck build

"Useless Priest Control Deck" is a better name for this deck !

I played Hearthstone for a while and when i tryed this deck i was so disapointed ...

fighting against Hunters or other champions with low hp cards is good. But when you play against players with good builded decks this deck just looks so useless and you just try to outplay the game somehow or trick the enemy player. I found fighting against monsters like Chillwing Yeti, Sen'jin Shieldmasta, Oasis Snapjaw, Gurubashi Berserker, Archmage, Sunwalker and many others to be really annoying. This deck is for people who has the legendary cards. Without them its just pointless to use it. So if you already have a good priest deck and you don't have the legendary cards Ragnaros the Firelord and Ysera just don't go for that useless deck. In my opinion you don't need legendary priest control deck without the legendary cards and just don't waste your time to craft the cards ... Firstly craft the legendary ones and use it on your deck!

If you could provide us with a video of you playing that deck, we would be more than happy to help and point out what you did wrong. Criticising like this does not really help and calling minions "monsters" makes it hard to take you seriously.

      We have a new Tavern Brawl this week called "BY THE POWER OF RAGNAROS" (emphasis on the capitals)!
      Remember Emperor Thaurissan? Well just like his effect, the cards in your hand will have their mana cost reduced at the end of your turn during this Brawl.
      Other than that, you have to pick a class and make your own deck. We haven't had a Tavern Brawl like that in a while. OTK decks, mostly variations of Exodia Mage with Malygos, seem to have the upper hand so far.
      Let us know if you have any other suggestions for this Tavern Brawl!

      After Overwatch, Hearthstone is the next Blizzard game to get its animated short series.
      A series of Hearthstone animated shorts has premiered today with "Hearth and Home". The protagonist is Ava, a young girl who is lost in the cold woods, until she discovers the warm Hearthstone tavern. We also finally get to know the name of the Innkeeper, which is Harth Stonebrew.
      Other notable characters are Malto, the wise old Mage; Sarge, an adorable mouse; Fewz and Wick, the Goblin brothers; Lou, the most fabulous Paladin ever; Bertie, a female Gnome; Urk, a tough-looking Orc; and Velaris, an arrogant Blood Elf.
      The short features some top quality animation and is quite reminiscent of Pixar Studios works. Enjoy!

      The Supreme Lich King was defeated earlier today at Gamescom. He was the final boss of Hearthstone's very first Raid!
      After the new Fireside Gathering features were announced, it was time to see them in action! You all know that Gamescom is taking place this week and Blizzard has prepared many reveals and surprises. As far as Hearthstone is concerned, we got to see the new Fireside Brawl, a special Tavern Brawl that is available only during Fireside Gatherings.
      Everyone present in Gamescom had the chance to battle against the 1 million health Supreme Lich King! During this Brawl, you choose a hero and you are given a deck. Your hero starts at 9 mana and 20 health. When your hero dies, you discover a second hero and you are given a new deck and so on. Your total damage to the Lich King is shown at a scoreboard, after you defeat him. Obviously, the goal is for everyone participating in the gathering to work together to defeat him.
      The Brawl seems to scale depending on how many people are present. It also features several Brawl-specific cards and hero powers. You can get a better feel of it by watching this detailed video by Thijs:
      Apparently, the Lich King cannot be destroyed by summoning the 4 Horsemen from Uther of the Ebon Blade's hero power, as Amnesiac and Trump discovered.
      The Supreme Lich King was defeated today, Wednesday the 23rd of August. The participants in this Brawl actually got physical rewards, too, as you can see in this clip with Hafu and Dog (language warning).
      What do you think about this new Fireside Gathering feature?
