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

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.

      Various bosses from The Witchwood's Monster Hunt are ready to battle it out in this week's brand new Tavern Brawl.
      This is the first special Tavern Brawl that we will see during this year's Hallow's End.
      You just queue up and you get assigned a random boss from the Monster Hunt. Some of these bosses include:
      Azalina Soulthief (Hero Power: 2 mana - Summon three 1/1 Wisps) Blood Witch Greta (Passive Hero Power: Spells cost Health instead of Mana) Brushwood Centurion (Hero Power: 3 mana - All minions attack random enemy minions) Chupacabran (Hero Power: 1 mana - Give a friendly minion +1/+1 and Lifesteal) Plaguemaster Rancel (Hero Power: 2 mana - Deal 2 damage to a minion. If it survives, give it Poisonous) Shudderwock (Passive Hero Power - All Battlecries trigger twice) Winslow Tobtock (Hero Power: 2 mana - Each player shuffles their hand into their decks and draws that many cards) Wharrgarbl (Hero Power: 2 mana - Draw 3 Murlocs from your deck) Experiment 3C (Hero Power: 1 mana - Destroy a friendly minion and draw 3 cards) It's not sure how many bosses there are available, but they certainly have similar decks as during the PvE adventure. It might be worth checking our Monster Hunt guide to refresh your memory on some of their abilities or just experience them in action!

      Hallow's End is going to last from October 17 until October 31.
      As we've already discussed, you can log in to enjoy the spooky festivities and receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron.
      You will also get a free Arena entry ticket in order to test your mettle in the Dual Class Arena. Pick a Hero, choose the Hero Power of a second Hero and try to make the perfect mix with the combined might of both Heroes' class cards.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end: Monster Smash (October 17-22) and The Headless Horseman Rides Again (October 24 - 29)!
      Lastly, for a limited time you can purchase the new Paladin hero, Sir Annoy-o, as a Bundle along with 20 Witchwood packs at the price of $19.99 or 19.99 EUR. This mighty new hero even has his own backstory which you can read here.
      Later today, we should also see the balance changes go live.
    • By Zadina
      The update will take effect on October 18.
      Well, the balance changes were smaller than expected as only three cards were affected this time.
      As expected, Giggling Inventor was affected as it now costs 7 mana, up from 5. The team actually considered it too powerful for 6 mana, which raises the question why it was 5 mana in the first place. Anyway, it still remains an odd card if this is still relevant.

      Now, a big and unexpected change was Mana Wyrm being raised to 2 mana. The iconic Classic minion has undergone the Tunnel Trogg treatment and after 4+ years of power, it is ready to retire.

      And a Wild change to alleviate the devastating Druid combo: Aviana will now cost 10 mana. This means she can't be played at the same turn as Kun the Forgotten King and Juicy Psychmelon won't be able to draw both Kun the Forgotten King and Aviana with it.

      The update will go live on October 18th with the weekly reset. What do you guys think about the changes?

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!
