3. Miracle Priest Strategy
This deck aims use a broad range of spells in order to main control of the board throughout out the game. It uses a handful of minions with powerful spell synergies such as Lyra the Sunshard, Wild Pyromancer, and Priest of the Feast to take full advantage of the number of spells in the deck. With multiple methods of being able to gain a large number of cards, this variant aims to remove all opponent's threats in long games of attrition.
4. Miracle Priest Mulligans & Matchup Specific Strategies
Northshire Cleric is the most important card to keep in every situation as it enables the deck's powerful card draw engine. In addition to this you should be looking for Wild Pyromancer or Radiant Elemental and spells like Circle of Healing and Power Word: Shield
Against aggressive decks you can additionally keep a copy of Holy Smite or Shadow Word: Pain to slow opponents down. You can also consider keeping cheap AoE effects such as Spirit Lash and Wild Pyromancer to help swing back onto the board if your opponent gains too much tempo in the early game.
4.1. Opening Turns
For the first few turns of the game you should aim to play very reactively by using spells to answer any minions played the by the opponent. Against aggressive decks you can try to be proactive by playing either Northshire Cleric or Radiant Elemental in combination with Power Word: Shield. However, you should be aware of your opponent's potential options, as an efficient answer will leave you with less options in the future. If you have Wild Pyromancer and cheap spells available, or Psychic Scream, you can afford to be more passive and use these cards to clear the board in the mid game.
4.2. Using Your Draw Engine
Once you have successfully navigated the early-game turns, the deck contains many methods to start amassing cards for later in the game. The most common and by far most potent method in the deck involves using a combination of Northshire Cleric, Wild Pyromancer, and Circle of Healing. These cards synergise in such a way that the Pyromancer will damage all minions on the board, followed by Circle of Healing healing them up, allowing your Cleric to draw a card for every single minion on the board. A similar but less effective methods involve using Wild Pyromancer with Circle of Healing and other spells to draw multiple cards from Acolyte of Pain.
The addition of Lyra the Sunshard provides another, less consistent, method of gaining many cards. By combining Lyra with Radiant Elementals and many cheap spells, you will be able add a large number of spells to your hand. When using this combo, it is not particularly important to be efficient with spells due to the cycling effect. Instead, you should prioritise getting rid of weaker situational cards such as Binding Heal or Circle of Healing in an attempt to fill your hand with higher value spells for the following turns.
This particular variant contains an additional way to generate cards in the form of Elise the Trailblazer. Where possible, you should try to play Elise while you have copies of Shadow Visions in hand. This will allow you to potentially generate additional copies of Un'Goro Pack to add an additional 5 cards to your hand each.
4.3. Ending The Game
This variant runs no direct win condition and instead relies on outlasting opponents due to the sheer number of cards that can be generated. That being said, it is still important to remain vigilant of opportunities to end the game. With both Lyra the Sunshard and Elise the Trailblazer in the deck, there are countless possible win conditions that can arise and you should be on the lookout in particular for Inner Fire due to its ability to create burst damage if you manage to get copies of Unidentified Elixir, Divine Spirit, or Power Word: Shield.
With the Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion comes another win condition in the form of Archbishop Benedictus. Using the Archbishop allows you to shuffle a copy of your opponents deck into your own, almost guaranteeing you will never reach fatigue damage and freely allowing you to draw cards as fast as you can play them while your opponent slowly runs out of cards.
5. Miracle Priest Card Swaps
Many of the spells are flexible in the deck. Additional cheap spells such as Mind Vision or Binding Heal can be included for a more powerful Miracle engine or higher value spells such as Holy Nova, Devour Mind, or Free From Amber can be considered instead.
