- 3. Strategy
This deck can be used to defeat General Drakkisath on Heroic Mode. It contains numerous high value and high rarity cards and is focused on creating 2-for-1 situations to try and catch up to the Mana disadvantage you face every turn. It should be noted, that most cards in this deck are interchangeable, and Priest is a good choice for this challenge since cards such as Resurrect and Mind Games let you play competitive minions for a lower dust cost than including a Legendary in your deck.

2.1. Mana Curve
This fight can be extremely frustrating. The bosses' ability to simply play twice as many cards as you each turn is very difficult to combat. Priest has a few advantages in this fight that can be exploited, however.
Firstly, they have excellent removal spells for this fight. Both Shadow Word: Death and Lightbomb are extremely strong at controlling the board. If you are able to cast Lightbomb while you have a Force-Tank MAX, or Kel'Thuzad in play, you can often create an overwhelming advantage.
Secondly, Priest has access to two cards in Resurrect and Mindgames that can be included in the deck at a lower cost than simply using high cost Legendary minions, and which have extremely high expected value.
Lastly, Mind Control can help to swing the game in your favour if you are unable to answer a specific minion the opponent plays, by simply stealing it and making the opponent deal with it instead.
This specific decklist simply consists of the cards we had available on the North American server at time of release. If you do not have many of the cards included, you can simply substitute them for whatever high value cards you do have. The most important cards to include however, are Sylvanas Windrunner, Force Tank MAX, Rend Blackhand, Kel'Thuzad, and Ragnaros the Firelord, as these have the highest potential to create the 2-for-1 situations needed to bridge the gap from the Mana deficit.
