Are you sure about wild pyromancers? i really don't like them and don't find 'em so useful

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.

The current strategy mentions chillwind yeti as a good target for the sunfury protector's battlecry

Neither card is in the deck list.

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!

      The team has finally responded to the community's concerns on the new Shaman legendary minion.
      Two weeks after The Witchwood's release, Team 5 has addressed the issues surrounding Shudderwock. Its animation will go faster and it will cap at 20 Battlecries. Hopefully, it will be less of a nuisance now. Lifedrinker will also receive a bump on its animation speed.
      I assume the fix will go live on April 26 along with the Monster Hunt.
      Jesse Hill
      Recently, our players have had feedback regarding the Shaman card, Shudderwock. We understand that the length of its Battlecry animation and other animations spawned from its Battlecry can be frustrating. In a future update, we will be doubling the animation speed of Shudderwock’s Battlecry so it will lessen the impact on the overall pacing of your current Hearthstone match. In addition, the amount of Battlecries Shudderwock can reproduce will be capped at 20.
      We will also be speeding up the animation of Lifedrinker for similar reasons.
      Thank you for your feedback, and we’ll see you in the Tavern.
      Cheers!

      The rewards are different for each rank. You receive the chest for the best rank you achieve, so do not be afraid of dropping a rank. Additionally, after reaching a milestone rank (ranks in bold), you will not fall below them that season again. This means that if you lose a game at rank 15 with 0 stars, you will not drop to rank 16, but rather stay at rank 15 with no stars.
      Rank Reward 25-21 None 20 1 golden common, 5 dust 19 1 golden common, 10 dust 18 1 golden common, 15 dust 17 1 golden common, 20 dust 16 1 golden common, 25 dust 15 1 golden common, 1 golden rare, 5 dust 14 1 golden common, 1 golden rare, 10 dust 13 1 golden common, 1 golden rare, 15 dust 12 1 golden common, 1 golden rare, 20 dust 11 1 golden common, 1 golden rare, 25 dust 10 2 golden commons, 1 golden rare, 5 dust 9 2 golden commons, 1 golden rare, 10 dust 8 2 golden commons, 1 golden rare, 15 dust 7 2 golden commons, 1 golden rare, 20 dust 6 2 golden commons, 1 golden rare, 25 dust 5 2 golden commons, 1 golden epic, 5 dust 4 2 golden commons, 1 golden epic, 10 dust 3 2 golden commons, 1 golden epic, 15 dust 2 2 golden commons, 1 golden epic, 20 dust 1 2 golden commons, 1 golden epic, 25 dust Legend 3 golden commons, 1 golden epic You also receive a card back for winning 5 games during the season.
