Looking at the Best Priest Deck January 2017 Season 34 it’s close between Dragon Priest and Reno Priest. I think the Dragon Priest list is a little more consistent overall, and certainly does better in the current META vs all the aggro pirate decks.
This is the Thijs C’Thun Priest Deck Season 31 list. C’Thun Priest has always been a decent deck, it’s not tier-1 of course, but this doesn’t mean it’s a bad deck. Thijs was climbing the ladder with it and had some decent success. It’s actually fairly good in the current META with the nerf hammer just dropping on some aggro mechanics.
It’s a control deck with some late game finishers. So if you can survive the early game from aggro decks and stabilize you’re likely to win the value game. There is loads of healing in the deck, it struggles with direct damage like most Priest decks but that’s where C’Thun comes in.
Use C’Thun wisely, set up a follow-on with the Golden Monkey if you can’t finish your opponent with C’Thun damage.
Here is the Senfglas High Legend Control Priest Deck Season 30. Now the dust has settled after Karazhan I think we can all admit that Priest did pretty well. Priest of the Feast and Onyx Bishop are staple in most Priest decks now and really carry this list.
Senfglas played this list to high legend, it’s strong against other control decks and with a good start can hold out vs aggro. Shamans are hard to beat due to their constant flow of high value cards, but that’s the same for most classes. Other than that it’s a good Priest deck to ladder with.
This is the Thijs High Legend Karazhan Dragon Priest Deck he was playing on stream today. Refreshing to see a Priest deck being played in the top 10 legend ranks, and with the addition of new cards like Book Wyrm and Netherspite Historian, I think Dragon Priest finally has all the tools to be a top-tier deck.
The main area this deck falls short in on direct damage. You can get your opponents painfully low on health and struggle to finish them without minions on board. Play for board control first, then removal second.
Book Wyrm is proving to be insane value. There are almost always targets with 3 or less attack to remove. There aren’t many spells for Dragonkin Sorcerer, I think I’ll swap that for something else.
Who is the best Hearthstone meme deck creator and player on Twitch? Neviilz 🙂 This is his latest creation, the Neviilz Barnes Resurrect Meme Priest Deck September 16. It’s a pretty decent deck too, resurrect Priest decks are really strong and have a lot of good matchups.
Rolling Barnes in this deck is always fun. You can get a 1/1 Ysera, Y’Shaarj, Ragnaros, Sylvanas, there’s loads of minions that can win you the game on the spot.
Here is a solid Medivh the Guardian Yogg Priest Deck. I played a few games with this deck and it’s really strong, there is loads of synergy to out value opponents, it has the control tools to beat down aggro, and of course you can always Yogg for the random win condition.
Medivh, the Guardian is good in the slower control decks, and Priest is one of the strongest classes for control. I didn’t include any higher mana cost spells than 6 mana because they are not really needed. You’re going to have control of the board and one massive minion isn’t what Priest needs to overwhelm an opponent.
This is the Forsen Karazhan Prophet Velen Burst Priest Deck he plays on stream if you want to try it out. It’s a strong list, and it will take opponents by surprise, but it’s not META breaking.
This is more of a fun deck than a solid ladder deck. You can climb with it, and Forsen does. But you will find yourself saying how lucky your opponents are just like he does. 🙂
The main problem with Priest is that you give your opponents time, especially with the burst versions like this one. With so much aggro on the ladder it’s frustrating trying to set up a finishing combo. It’s fun though, give it a go.
Mulligan Guide for Prophet Velen Priest
Playing Mind Vision on turn one when you’re going first is fine. Otherwise look for early removal spells like Shadow Word: Pain, and Shadow Word: Death. Keep Barnes too, three of your four minions are Barnes targets.
Looking for new Priest deck ideas with some of these new Karazhan cards? Try out this Kolento Karazhan Priest w Ysera Ragnaros Barnes Deck. Loads of awesome Barnes targets, plenty of resurrect, and a really strong Priest deck.
This is the Trump N’Zoth Priest w Onyx Bishop Barnes Deck he was playing on stream. The new card Onyx Bishop has brought new life to the Priest class.
It also has N’Zoth at the top end for a solid win condition. You have Sylvanas, Cairne Bloodhoof, and Shifting Shades to bring back from the graveyard.
Priest has a really strong midgame now with Priest of the Feast healing them. It’s not too hard to make it to the late game, even vs aggro. I’m not sure if I like the Moroes in this deck, but it was working out for Trump so it can’t be that bad.
General Mulligan Strategy for Onyx Bishop Priest
Look for Northshire Cleric and removal spells like Shadow Word: Death, and Shadow Word: Pain. You want to protect your Cleric and draw as much as possible early on.
This is the Thijs Resurrect Priest w Onyx Bishop Deck he was playing on stream. It has a lot of the resurrect cards to bring those Injured Blademaster’s back at full health, and some deathrattle minions for a bit N’Zoth finish.
Mulligan hard for those Blademasters, Resurrect, and if you’ve facing aggro get some board clear cards together.
