well i already have problems dropping from lvl 15 to 16 all the time with this deck, patience or? i switched the 1 mana Smite for Throggzor the Earthinator because i feel like end game is lacking to much,  i got to much games were it is so close late game and i loose when i was ahead early or mid game.

You might just not be facing appropriate matchups for the deck, you're already reacting in the right way, making adjustments based on what you're running into, so just keep it up and i'll sure you'll start to see improvement.

I just can't get this deck going against the mech/aggro-rush decks that are so pervasive now.  Very very frustrating.  I need two Holy Novas to up my chances of drawing them, but by the time you can play them you're just about dead.  You're screwed if you don't draw pain or death cards to clear more obnoxious minions, but the tinkerers are frequently buffed to 4 attack, keeping them safe from shadow words.  So far this season I'm finding this deck is too dependent on an absolutely perfect draw.

Wich card do you suggest to replace Dark Cultist?

 

Spider Tank, but Dark Cultist is really, really important.

You have 3 forms of AoE in the deck, Auchenai Circle combo, Pyromancer Combos, and Holy Nova, against Mech Mage you should pretty much always keep either half of the Auchenai combo in your hand since it's almost a guaranteed board clear any time you draw it. The beauty of Priest is that they usually only need to stabilise once against Aggro decks and then they 

can take over the game, so just focus on that. Any deck is draw dependent, but your mulligan strategy goes a long way to increasing your winrate. Often when players complain about decks needing perfect draws to win, it's because they're mulliganing incorrectly.

Hey man,

Thanks for the deck list, I've been using it to a moderate amount of success (probably around 40% win rate) I'm still learning all the mulligans and wild pyro trading can be confusing.

Do you have any more tips for playing against Aggro (mech Mage and hunter). Like should I trade into piloted shredder? Should I keep Dark Cultist in my opening hand? Would you recommend running a silence for mechwarpers/shredders?

Thank you

Henry

If you don't have Pyro's,, Voljin, Blademasters, Recombobulator, or shadow priests, what would you suggest?

Different deck all together, or what?

Hey Sottle, great deck! Could I just ask if it's viable in the meta or not? Also, what would I sub in instead of the two dark cultists? I've heard Earthen Ring Farseers are viable, but I would like to hear your opinion? Also I don't have one Cabal but I'll probably replace it with a shrinkmeister or something along those lines. Thanks!

Yeah, Earthen is ok, but Dark Cultists are one of the best Priest cards, and you will miss them if you don't have them.

Yeah...  I can't seem to get this deck to work at all in the current meta.  I am about a level 10 player but I can't get this deck out of the 18 range.  Too slow, then it seems to run out of steam trying to catch up.  A few fun combo's but can't tranlate it into more than about 40% win rate.

      This Mage Legendary card was revealed in collaboration with Wronchi!
      If you remember from the expansion announcement video, Hearthstone's developers were sucked into Netherstorm and it's up to Levi the intern to rescue them! As he ventures into Boom Labs, he encounters Stargazer Luna.
      The video was made by Wronchi Animations, who have created many beloved and hilarious Hearthstone cartoons. There's probably going to be a second part, so expect more card reveals!
      Now, let's talk about the card itself.

      With a Netherstorm expansion, one would expect that the magnificent Kael'thas would have been the Mage Legendary. Instead, we get Stargazer Luna which is a very interesting card with a decent statline. She can complement perfectly Aggro/Burn Mage, but you could perhaps find her in Minion-based Mage decks: mostly Murloc Mage, but maybe Elemental Mage as well. She has potentially better tempo than Aluneth, but is more risky. You obviously don't want to play her on turn 3. Let the topdeck wars begin!
      The reveal schedule is unclear at the moment, but it should go as with previous expansions: an initial reveal livestream on July 23, followed by roughly two weeks of card reveals by community sites and personalities, then a final stream before The Boomsday Project releases on August 7.

      New features include Legendary spells, the Magnetic keyword, Omega cards and Project spells.
      The second expansion of the Year of the Raven was indeed related to Netherstorm, home of the unforgettable Dr. Boom, and it's called the Boomsday Project. Apart from the new features, five cards were also revealed.
      The announcement video has an appropriate 80s science fiction movie vibe, featuring notable faces from the Hearthstone team.
      It's Goblins vs Gnomes 2.0 as the Mech tribe is definitely going to return with a vengeance! There's a new keyword called Magnetic: Magnetic minions can either be played on their own or they can be fused with a Mech minion that's on the board to add to their health, attack and ability.

      Omega cards can also be played regularly. However, if you play them at 10 Mana Crystals, you will get a powerful boost. The Battlecry assures that the OP version cannot be cheated out. Druid, the only class that can ramp its Mana up, will surely find a use for this type of minion. Curiously enough, the Omega Defender isn't a Mech, even though it definitely looks like one.

      Projects are powerful spells, that will benefit both players. Assumedly, all classes will have a Project spell. "Research" and "Weapons" Projects were teased, with the latter probably belonging to Warrior.

      We've seen all kinds of Legendary cards: minions, Quests, Weapons, Hero cards. Now it's time for Legendary Spells to make their appearance. I wonder if there are any special rules when it comes to Discovering or playing discounted versions of Legendary Spells, because they can potentially be powerful. Here's the Rogue one:

      That's all with the new features, but don't forget: The Boomsday Project isn't all about mechs and projects. It's also about science, crazy discoveries and the manipulation of elements. Under this thematic, we can find the Shaman Legendary minion:

      It's almost certain that Dr. Boom will be making a grand return for this Hearthstone Expansion; after all, he's the big boss on The Boomsday Project. He was shortly teased in the announcement video: unfortunately, this time around not all classes will be able to enjoy the Dr. Boom goodness as he looks like a Warrior card. Lord Jaraxxus will also reinvent himself as a new Warlock Hero skin: Mecha-Jaraxxus!

      According to the official announcement post, the new expansion will go live on August 7, 2018 - a week earlier than August expansions from previous years. The official site of The Boomsday Project is also up!
      The Boomsday Project will also bring along new PvE Adventure content: The Puzzle Lab! It will go live on August 21 and from the description on the official site, it looks slightly different from the Dungeon Run and the Missions. Players will have to participate in successful experiments against nine bosses. These include goals like "Lethal", which is kill the enemy in one turn; Mirror, which requires you to create a perfect copy of your opponent's board; Board Clear; and Survival, which requires you stay alive from the opponent's attacks! You will earn the following card back for completing The Puzzle Lab:

      Here is the new Boomsday board:

      The login launch reward for The Boomsday Project will be three packs and a random Class Legendary card. A card reveal livestream will be held on July 23 at 10:00 am PST on the official Hearthstone Twitch channel.
      Pre-ordering The Boomsday Project has some additional perks compared to other expansions and two different options. You can preorder the normal Bundle which will contain 50 The Boomsday Project packs, a random Golden Legendary card from the expansion and the Mecha-Jaraxxus card back. Or you can get the Mega Bundle, which contains 80 packs, a random Golden Legendary, the Mecha-Jaraxxus card back and the Mecha-Jaraxxus Warlock Hero skin.
