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.

      Winter Veil begins next week on Hearthstone and a special Tavern Brawl will award three Knights of the Frozen Throne card packs.
      Next week's Tavern Brawl will be really similar to the Gift Exchange one back from 2015 and February 2017. There will be some differences though, as the Brawl will have a Kobold flavour and it will have a new name: Wacky Waxy Winter Veil's Brawl.
      As Winter Veil is a frosty season, the reward will obviously be three packs from Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion. It's not sure if the Winter Veil Wreath card back, which was associated with the Gift Exchange brawl during the previous years' Winter Veils, will be available this time to those who don't already have it.
      Blizzard Entertainment
      ‘Tis the season! In celebration of Winter’s Veil—and to give all you adventurers something to do that doesn’t involve taking candles—Greatfather Kobold has prepared a special distraction, er, Winter’s Veil tavern brawl packed with wacky, waxy gifts!
      These treats aren’t just on the game board! The reward for winning your first game of this Tavern Brawl is THREE festively frosty Knights of the Frozen Throne card packs! 
      Greatfather Kobold’s helpers have been busy decorating the Orgrimmar game board for the tavern brawl, but you can also experience the holiday in Stormwind while enjoying other play modes. And no matter how you play, don’t forget to show your opponent some holiday spirit with the return of the Happy Winter’s Veil greeting emote!
      The Rules
      Greatfather Kobold will drop off some tastefully wrapped, candle-bearing gifts on turn one—four on each side of the board, for a total of eight. If you unwrap a gift, you’ll receive a Legendary minion that costs three fewer mana to play! Greatfather Kobold will keep the celebration going by periodically parachuting in more presents. Don’t be greedy, though! You’ll only get a discounted Legendary minion from the gifts Greatfather Kobold left on your opponent’s side of the field.
      How will you build your deck to make the most of these potent presents?
      The Wacky Waxy Winter’s Veil brawl begins December 20 and lasts through December 24, so be sure to drop in and celebrate!
      A very Happy Winter’s Veil to you and yours! (source)
      For now, you can enjoy this week's Tavern Brawl, which is Valeera's Bag of Burgled Spells.

      Following the tradition started with Knights of the Frozen Throne, Kobolds & Catacombs gets its first digital comic.
      "Up Comes Down" is a lighthearted story about two Kobolds, who decide to go off on their own despite the orders of King Togwaggle. In their short adventure in the Catacombs, they encounter many obstacles, but by cooperating they manage to emerge victorious.

      You can read and/or download the comic here.

      Can you find the best move in a deck full of cards from the new set?
      The first episode of WTM since the release of Kobolds & Catacombs, Aleco plays a "Big Spells Dragon Priest" deck full of brand of new cards.
      Kobolds and Catacombs has hit the competitive ladder with a bang, bringing it with it an unprecedented number of impactful new cards. Some cards have come as huge surprises (Spiteful Summoner, Corridor Creeper), others have been performing about as well as expected (Duskbreaker, Twilight Acolyte), and all four of these powerful new KnC cards are featured in the deck I've had the most success with over the past four days - Sattelite's Big Spells Dragon Priest. The deck has a ton of play to it and never fails to produce difficult decisions and interesting situations, such as the one I found myself in here:
      "What's the Move?" is now seeking viewer submissions for the future episodes. If you ever find yourself in a sticky situation on the ladder, please feel free to submit your plays, questions, and feedback to Aleco on twitter.
