Then use something else :)

These cards aren't carved in stone. These are suggestions for you.

Seeing as I have all the requisite cards except Cairne, but happened to draw a certain legendary today: how well would a Nat Pagle substitute?

I'd rather not suggest it. Cairne is a very strong board control card, while Nat is a card draw card in early game. For that, you already have Northshire clerics, PW: Shield, Thought Steal, and you also have Shadow Goodness to gain even more advantage.

 

I'd rather suggest going for a Boulderfist Ogre or Chillwind Yeti. (Ogre is harder hitting, costs as much mana as Cairne, but vulnerable to SW: Death, Druid Mark f the Wild, big game hunter combo etc, while yeti with 4 attacks is just like a single cairne, costs less mana, but you may have a gap in your mana loop at 6)

this deck is horrible, went from level 10 to 14 with no wins. vs early aggro it requires combos, in mid game there are not enough creatures on the board to do anything, and if you manage to get to late game it is generally lopsided, i finally had a win vs another priest...

At around 10 you should already play multiple decks and you should always make adjustments to them based on the meta game. Priest can generally be really powerful and as you mentioned "combo requirement" will often be the only way to destroy most aggressive decks as a Priest.

You could potentially include in 2x Silence, 2x Ancient Watcher and 2x Smite to be more competitive against aggressive decks.

I don't really understand how to play this deck. Would it be possible to elaborate on the matter? Thank you in advance.

Most of your games will rely on a good Circle of Healing. Either with Blademaster so you can get huge value on the board early on and deal with your opponent's minions or if you fall behind, wipe the board with Soulpriest (Soulpriest makes all your healing do damage instead, which will provide nice 4 damage aoe from CoC). As with most control decks, your position on the board is the key to win. Win the board, win the game.

The Wild Pyromancer hampers many aggressive decks as such decks often aim to dish out as much damage as it could early to mid game in order to finish you off easily near the end game.. Best example to show it (also one of it's best uses) was the Pyromancer + Coin + PW:Shield combo. It's hard to pass the benefit of being able to do AOE damage to all creatures for as early as the 2nd turn. Even without running second, that kind of capability often guarantees minimal damage dealt to you by the enemy early game thus giving you enough time to attain your full potential..

 

Just helping to see the usefulness of the said card, either way if you don't like it you can always not use it..

 

===========

 

Currently have a similar deck but with only one Auchenai Soulpriest, two Questing Adventurers instead of Sunfury Protectors and tweaking to fit 2 Holy Smites (to compliment WildPyro and QuestAd), a Twilight Drake (which often has 6-7 health) and 2 Spellbreakers (coz' nowadays silencing something strong is pretty nice)..

The Deck doesn't work for me. I had a lot more wins witch cheaper ones. Not enough removal for control.

Current strategy mentions Chillwind Yeti as a viable target for Sunfury Protector's battecry

The deck list doesn't contain either of those cards.

Thanks for pointing this out. We've fixed it :)

That's not a cool build... I climbed well enough with my own primitive conception, only to fall lamentably after switching to this build... I have revised it a little bit - half of it bit to be more specific - and I'm climbing again... The build lacks "cohesion"; Does not have the "kick"

I guess I'll be the voice of dissent and say I have been enjoying this deck, and am currently on a winning streak with it. I've crawled out of the grave many times thanks to its strong end game. Thanks so much for sharing!

      For the past few days, top players have been discussing the pros and cons of the new MMR change at Legend Ranks. The only problem being, that Game Designer, Iksar, isn't aware of a change.
      There are far fewer Legendary players than usual this season, and as such things might feel a little different to the players, but the sample size across many streams and thousands of games of Hearthstone seems to point to the changing of the matchmaking system. It has been accepted by most that the system has changed so that you only play opponents in a very narrow band, rather than the previous system where you could be matched with someone with a wildly different Legend Rank.
      That alone might not have been enough evidence, but players are also queuing into the same opponent multiple times, to the point that they are having to play mind games on which deck to queue.

      Hoej independently witnessed the same thing, and went to Twitter to check that he was not alone. Several Legendary players agreed that the system has been changed, and people began to discuss what they thought of the changes.
      Placeholder for tweet 834430686325067776 The majority of players like the new matchmaking, although several did voice concerns that the new system heavily favours the players who reach Legend Rank early in the season. Just as the debate was getting interesting, Iksar dropped his bombshell:
        At this point there are several options, and all seem unlikely. Either the entire community is suffering from some kind of huge matchmaking fluctuation, Blizzard have made a major change without informing Iksar, or there is a bug which most people preferred to the actual game. Whatever happens, the reply when Iksar has investigated is sure to be interesting!

      Blizzard have announced that the next update will contain big changes to the way Arena works.
      The newly announced changes will come into force at the same time as the nerfs to Small-Time Buccaneer and Spirit Claws, which we discussed previously.
      The most important change will be that Arena will change from Wild format to Standard. This will help to keep Arena feeling fresh, as well as make sure that card synergies can be drafted more easily.
      Changes have also been made to the distribution of cards. Common and Basic cards will show up less often, and the frequency of spells and class cards being offered has been raised. The full discussion can be found in the announcement link above, but the main reasoning is to allow players to have more opportunities to outdraft and outplay their opponents, rather than just playing the game on curve.
      This philosophy will have some implications in Standard too. If Blizzard are actively trying to reduce the impact of playing on curve in Arena, this could mean that they will carry over the same thoughts into constructed play. I feel that moving away from the style, unaffectionately known as Curvestone, would be good for the game. The changes will almost certainly be welcomed in the Arena community, and it is good to see Blizzard making them now, rather than waiting for the next set to launch.

      Im making a telegram bot that can send you new decks and news from https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone.
      It already can send some decks and filter them by class and deck format.
      Im going to open bot for all users in next few weeks. 
      Any suggestions?
