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

What would you suggest to replace Vol'jin if you don't have him?

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

Different deck all together, or what?

Yep, different deck i'm afraid, that's too many core cards to sub.

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.

      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?
