There are loads of different Dragon Priest lists with different tech cards in but this list has an interesting choice – Defender of Argus.
And, this Thijs Dragon Priest w Defender of Argus went 8-0 at a recent tournament win so it’s proven. A lot of Priest lists lack that little bit of extra burst to trade up or finish an opponent, or stopping aggressive decks going face. This tech choice sorts this out.
There is also a Holy Nova instead of a Dragonfire Potion for a little extra healing and more tempo on board. It’s a really strong deck against all the other META decks, give it a go.
Dragon Warrior was one of the top-tier decks over the past few months and although it was overshadowed by Pirates with the release of Mean Streets of Gadgetzan it’s a still a really strong deck.
This is the deck list Thijs used in a recent tournament he won. It’s really on ladder too.
‘If you build it, they will come.’
Taunt Warrior is an archetype that hasn’t really had all the cards to be a top-tier deck. Blizzard keep pushing new taunt synergy cards out though.
This was a fun deck to watch Thijs playing. It’s pretty strong but is obviously a slow deck so those pesky Pirate Warriors can be a problem if they get a fast start.
I had some fun playing this Thijs N’Zoth Shaman Deck w White Eyes Dec 16. It’s a strong deck and using Ancestral Spirit on White Eyes is fun, I managed around 60% ratio, I feel like it needs a little more early game stability in this aggressive META.
Thijs did well with it, but he’s super-awesome compared to me 🙂 See how you get on.
This is the deck I was watching Thijs climb from around rank 5 to legend with. It’s a Jade Golem Druid deck and uses Gadgetzan Auctioneer to cycle through the deck and gain an advantage on board by dropping bigger, and bigger Jade Golems.
The Jade Behemoth‘s and Feral Rages were enough to beat most Pirate Warriors and aggro decks. Populating more Jade Idols makes this such a strong control deck that you will have more late-game value than most control decks.
This is the Thijs Demon Renolock Gadgetzan Edition he was playing on stream and streaking like crazy. It’s a great counter to all the Pirate Warrior decks!
This is the Thijs Jade Shaman Gadgetzan Deck he was climbing ladder with on stream. Jade Druid has overshadowed Shaman a little, but this is a really strong deck using the Jade Golem synergy.
It’s a control deck, so use the board clears when your opponent over commits and come back with the golems and board presence and out value them.
Pirate Warrior is running a mock over the ladder since Mean Streets of Gadgetzan was released.
This is the Thijs Pirate Warrior Gadgetzan Deck w Patches. Patches the Pirate is really good value, you get card draw, charge, and thin your deck out a little on turn one almost every game.
