Deck Import

Spiteful Summoner Priest (also known as Satellite Priest, in honor of the first player to pilot it to high Legend) is a tempo deck based around it’s namesake, Spiteful Summoner. By excluding any low-cost spells, this deck ensures that Spiteful Summoner will target large spells like Mind Control to create enormous minions much sooner than they would normally hit the board.

Update: Spiteful Summoner Priest (March 2018 – Post Nerf)

Spiteful Summoner Priest has took a hit with the nerfs to Corridor Creeper and Bonemare, as both were common in the lists. However, the core remains unchanged and it’s still one of the better decks to ladder with, especially if you like big minions and swingy turns.

Spiteful Summoner Priest Mulligan Strategy & Guide

VS Everything

Higher Priority (Keep every time)

  • Northshire Cleric – As the only 1-cost minion in the deck, this is an automatic keep in all matchups. While it’s always great to have board presence on turn 1, it’s the only way to have something on the board by turn 2 to get value out of Shadow Ascendant on curve.
  • Netherspite Historian – Good Turn 2 play in every matchup and you should have a Dragon to activate it most of the time. In slow matchups, you’re looking for another Drakonid Operative, while in Aggro matchups getting an extra Duskbreaker can be game-changing.
  • Shadow Ascendant – Amazing 2-drop, can really snowball the game. Most of the time it’s your best Turn 2 play and if it doesn’t die immediately, you’re in for a good game.

Lower Priority (Keep only if certain conditions are met)

  • Kabal Talonpriest – With a 2-drop (especially Ascendant) or Cleric when on a Coin. If you hit something with Talonpriest, anything really, the card’s value is very, very high.

VS Fast Decks

Higher Priority (Keep every time)

  • Duskbreaker – Against aggro, this card is the backbone of your deck. Duskbreaker clears most early boards and leaves behind a minion with pretty decent stats. It is often a good plan to keep another Dragon (or Netherspite Historian) in your hand if you’re keeping Duskbreaker, just to ensure that you can play it to clear the board.
  • Tar Creeper – With great stats for the cost, Tar Creeper is an excellent early game taunt. This early in the game your opponent might not have a way to silence or otherwise remove it, forcing them to trade their early board into it.

VS Slow Decks

Higher Priority (Keep every time)

  • Spiteful Summoner – Against slower opponents you can be fairly confident you’ll survive until turn 6, and on turn 6 you really want to be playing Spiteful Summoner. The strength of this card comes from making enormous minions several turns earlier than they should be played, and keeping it in your opening hand is the best way to ensure you can play it on curve.
  • Drakonid Operative – This is one of the more powerful cards in all of Hearthstone, and before the release of Duskbreaker it was the primary incentive to play Priest decks with Dragon synergy. Operative has fantastic stats for the cost, and allows you to Discover a card from your opponent’s deck, provided you’re holding a Dragon. While the Discover mechanic is usually very strong, choosing only from cards in your opponent’s deck is even better in most cases, as you are much more likely to hit a competitive card. Keeping Operative against Control is safe because you’re likely to survive to turn 5, and helps you activate your earlier Dragon synergy cards.

Lower Priority (Keep only if certain conditions are met)

  • Twilight Drake – Twilight Drake is mostly played in this deck for lack of a better option, but it does have its upsides. Four attack is difficult for most Priest decks to remove, so against other Priest decks, Twilight Drake is often your strongest minion.

Spiteful Summoner Priest Play Strategy

The goal of this deck is to keep tempo throughout the early to mid game until you can play Spiteful Summoner, creating a big minion to hopefully close out the game.

Vs Aggro

One thing is sure – this deck often can have a hard time when playing against Aggro decks. On the one hand, it’s not fast enough so you can dominate the board in the early game. On the other hand, since you can’t run any AoE damage spells, your only board clear is basically Duskbreaker. And while yes, it’s great, not only you have only two (unless you get lucky with Netherspite Historian), but you also can’t always guarantee that it will work on Turn 4, when you often most need it.

That’s why performing a reactive game plan is not a good thing when playing this deck – you need to be as proactive as possible. Get on the board, try to aggressively fight for it, even if you have Duskbreaker in your hand (think of it as of a premium card – if you can get out of a situation without using it, generally it’s better to do that).

The only way to heal up in your deck is Priest’s Hero Power. But should you always heal yourself? Well, no. There are matchups in which indeed healing yourself might be worth more than keeping your minions alive – like vs Tempo Secret Mage, where surviving the initial wave of minions and burst wins you the game as long as they don’t get Aluneth on curve. But at the same time, most of the aggressive matchups are very board-centric. It means that it’s often better ot heal your minion to keep it alive and potentially get an extra trade than to heal yourself. Heal yourself only if you’re getting into your opponent’s potential burn range – like let’s say getting down into Leeroy Jenkins range against Aggro Paladin (or even better, Leeroy + Rallying Blade).

Since you have quite limited defensive tools, offense is often the way you can win some games. Of course, you need to withstand the early pressure, but when you get to the mid game, you can have quite a lot of swing turns. Especially hitting something like Drakonid Operative into Spiteful Summoner in the mid game – that’s amazing. If you get an overwhelming board lead like that, it’s time to take advantage of your big minions. Try to set-up 2 turns lethal if your life total is good enough. Clear your opponent’s high priority targets like Knife Juggler with the 4/4 and go face with the big guys. The only removal you really need to play around is Sunkeeper Tarim, so if you face Paladin that hasn’t used Tarim yet, try to play around it.

Generally, the games don’t really go long after the explosive mid game. Either you won with your big minions or you lost, because you didn’t have answers for your opponent’s small guys. One more note is that even if you’re in a desperate situation, you can always try going for the RNG roll with cards like Summoner, Grand Archivist or Free From Amber. I had games where I got completely overwhelmed by my opponent, and still won them, because Grand Archivist played Free from Amber and rolled Obsidian Statue. Always try to take your outs, even if the chance is low.

Vs Control

When facing Control decks, your game plan switches to all-in offense in most of the matches. There is no reason to play defensive, as a slow deck won’t put pressure on your anyway. You want to start putting pressure ever since the first turns, but not by completely dropping the value. For example, drawing cards from Cleric is still great. One of the best way for Control deck to win against you is run you out of resources, so try to save some of them. 

Generally, in the early game you can go all-in on the board. One of the ways to win with this deck is actually through the early game aggression, something opponents rarely mulligan for when facing Priest. Shadow Ascendant is the early game MVP – if they have no way to clear it, it can snowball the game in your favor. Try to deal as much face damage as possible, and overextending a bit onto the board is not bad if you have the mid game refill.

As much as your early game are still quite easy to take down by AoEs and removals, your Turn 4+ plays might not be. Twilight DrakeDrakonid Operative and Spiteful Summoner is like a dream curve. Remember that you’re playing the beatdown role, so leave trading for your opponent, as long as you can get away with it. Trading up is okay to protect your bigger minions, but do not trade that 5/6 into let’s say some 2/3. Every point of damage is important.

In the mid game, try to not overextend, because that’s when the big AoE removals come into action. You always want to have some sort of board refill. So if you have one Spiteful Summoner and a big guy on the board already, don’t play another one into e.g. Twisting Nether. Instead, play for example a Curious Glimmerroot – you will still have an extra 3/3 body on the board, but getting AoE’d won’t hurt that much, because you’ve got a card from it already anyway. 

One thing to keep in mind is that Grand Archivist will never cast a spell that doesn’t have a target. So if you play it on an empty board, it will always cast a Free From Amber – you don’t have to worry about burning Mind Control for no reason. At the same time, the minion is most effective when your opponent has a single, bigger minion on the board (e.g. Control Warlock with Voidlord). Him casting Mind Control to steal it is a massive swing, which often leads to a quick victory.

Twilight Acolyte works very well if you need to neutralize a big threat, such as an early Mountain Giant from the Warlock. But there’s nothing wrong about using it on e.g. 3 or 4 Attack minion to just keep the pressure and prevent that minion from killing one of your own.

Spiteful Summoner Priest Card Substitutions

The deck is actually pretty cheap – this specific version doesn’t run any Legendaries, but it does run quite a lot of Epics. Most of them are necessary and irreplaceable, but some of them can be substituted by something else. Check out the whole list below.

  • Netherspite Historian – Karazhan card. If you don’t own it now, it’s probably too late to buy it unless you play Wild too. This card is amazing and one of the best 2-drops a Dragon deck can include. Ability to discover extra value against Control and most importantly extra Duskbreakers against Aggro is very important. But if you don’t have it and still want to play the deck, I guess that you can sub it with Faerie Dragon. Better on-curve, but worse value-wise.
  • Curious Glimmerroot – It’s a really solid 3-drop, but it does not play a key role in the deck, so it can be subbed. Weapon destruction (Acidic Swamp Ooze), Faerie Dragon, another Silence (Spellbreaker or a second Kabal Songstealer), Eater of Secrets or even Vicious Fledgling are some of the potential replacements.
  • Twilight Acolyte – The only way to deal with high health minions (besides trading into them) – plays a quite important role in the deck, but you should still be able to do without it. Play one of the replacements above.
  • Spiteful Summoner – It’s the reason why you play the deck in the first place, absolutely cannot be replaced.
  • Grand Archivist – I’d say that one copy is also a must. But I guess that you COULD possibly play something else, e.g. Cabal Shadow PriestSkulking Geist or even one of the replacements I’ve listed above. But your win rate is going to suffer.

    As a budget (newbie) player I’ve found that I can replace the Historian with Secretkeeper with this deck build and I also dropped the Twilight Drakes for a Bone Mare and a 2nd Kabal Songstealer. I call this a spiteful confusion summoner. It seems to be more affective for early draws while giving the impression that I’m playing a secret priest deck which draws early attacks away from my hero.

    I climbed quite a lot with this today!

    I’m missing some cards, so I had to wing it a little. Climbed from rank 17 to 10 in a few hours. Now I’m kind of stuck again, and you feel the missing cards, and think oh how nice if I had card x now 😀 I’m seriously thinking about dusting cards from other classes to craft some of the missing cards, should I?

      Spiteful Priest was mislabeled as Dragon Priest is this guide and it looked at the win rates for Dragon Priest instead. Sorry, it should be alright now.

    February 20, 2018 at 11:26 pm

    Thanks, great deck and quite cheap. Currently on rank 12, highest i’ve got to before was 15. Usually play shaman so really struggling with lack of early play, sometimes it can get too out of hand before turn 6 – i’ve replaced glimmerroots with 2x Keepers of secrets as a lot of the decks I play against are either secrets mage or hunter. Sometimes murloc paladin has some too.

    • Cruxkid
      March 5, 2018 at 12:32 am

      While I get the inclusion of the water I would only use one and I wouldn’t be removing glimmeroot as he is one of priests strongest cards. I’d probably take out a drake or an acolyte, but that’s just me. And as for the early game, always try to Mulligan for your low cost cards and try keep a duskbreaker vs aggro decks as this card will single-handedly win you those matches

  6. Remus94
    February 20, 2018 at 8:12 am

    Replace 1x Twilight Drake and Harrison Jones with 2x Cabal Shadow Priest to enable the steal combo with Twilight Acolyte, that won me a lot of matches, made some players summon nothing with Bloodreaver Gul’dan several times.

  7. Lemontree
    February 18, 2018 at 10:28 pm

    -1 Harrison Jones, +1 acid swamp ooze because you want to control your draws and have a stronger turn 2 play in case your nether-sprite cant activate

    -1 twilight drake, +1 spell breaker, good for silencing aggro shields and buffs + warlock lackeys, void lord

    -1 curious glimmer root, +1 cabal shadow priest to counter aggro decks and synthesize with twilight acolyte to steal things – especially void lords.

    • Lemontree
      February 18, 2018 at 10:31 pm


      also swamp ooze cost less so you can destroy aggro weapon much earlier.

      Debating on removing the 2nd curious glimmer root for another cabal shadow priest or spell breaker.

  8. Bucky
    February 18, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    Does anyone feel like subbing the Glimmerroot’s for 2 Spellbreaker’s is viable? I’ve been doing this to counter Cubelock and I’ve found it’s been winning me a few games I maybe shouldn’t have.


  9. Matt
    February 17, 2018 at 2:56 pm

    I kind of feel like archivist is old meta and doesn’t address what is going on in this meta’s late game. I like cutting the archivist and ambers for a scream and 2 shadow priests.

    i run this without the Shadow Ascendant or Curious Glimmerroot cards and run stonehill defender and kabal songstealer cards instead.

    • Martian
      February 16, 2018 at 9:44 am

      Prince Keleseth would be the best, you could also go with Faerie Dragon. If you put in Keleseth you have to take out shadow ascendant.

  12. Ken

    • StorM
      February 10, 2018 at 10:52 pm

      You can use Corrosive Sludge, it’s a solid 5/5 body and has a similar effect.

    • Aaron M
      February 11, 2018 at 1:50 am

      Any of the ooze cards that destroy weapons id say. You wont get the card draw effect though.

      • Martian
        February 11, 2018 at 11:06 am

        Acidic Swamp Ooze and Gluttonous Ooze are the other good weapon removal cards, either would be fine. You could also add Kabal Songstealer.

  14. HervyGrizzly
    February 9, 2018 at 10:52 am

    It looks pretty nice. Will you recommend it over Cube Warlock? Just have have dust to craft some missing core cards for this or Cube Warlock and I can’t decide 🙁

    • Martian
      February 11, 2018 at 11:07 am

      I’m partial to Cube Lock.

    February 8, 2018 at 11:02 am

    What do you think about including stonehill defenders x2 instead of historians (don’t have the adventure). They would provide the deck with another 3rd turn play that has taunt and okey stats against agroo , but most importantly provides you with another taunt

    • ferrafox
      February 9, 2018 at 7:06 am

      No. Historians are essential to discover dragons that will later serve as actvators for your other dragons. Also, discovering an early duskbreaker will win you games

    • Martian
      February 9, 2018 at 10:44 am

      That’s the only reason I’m happy they’re not doing Adventures anymore, so annoying for F2P players to complete decks if they don’t have them. Do you have Keleseth? Unless you play Wild I wouldn’t recommend getting the Adventure this close to rotation, and Keleseth would be fine until then.

      • Spyder9899
        February 14, 2018 at 10:16 pm

        This is a little off topic, but as as mainly a free to play player, I loved adventures. It’s only 700 coins per stage, and you can collect the compete set. We usually knew before hand when new expansions/adventures were coming out and you can save up for it. In regular expansions, no way I can get all epics and legendaries as free to play.

        • Martian
          February 14, 2018 at 11:31 pm

          That is off topic, but I mostly agree.

    Nice write-up,

    I’ve been playing this deck all through January and am now experimenting with substitution for the upcoming nerfs.

    On another note though: Twilight Drake feels super underwhelming and with the amount of silnce that i currently run by everybody it mostly removed way too efficently. I’ve played a couple of games with Hoarding Dragon as a sub. So far it has been ok. What are the mai reasons, that this card never comes up in the discussion?

    • Martian
      February 7, 2018 at 11:28 am

      Thanks! Giving your opponent two mana can be pretty devastating, or in some cases even two cards. Now that Raza has been nerfed it’s probably more playable than it was, but I’d still get excited if someone played it against me.

      • Mirthum
        February 8, 2018 at 9:25 am

        Yeah! for example, lowing Giants cost for warlock, or Arcanes in Druid, give Rogue in general more options, set OTK paladin, In fact u give me the idea to use that card on a mill rogue, maybe works better.

  17. DukeStarswisher
    February 1, 2018 at 11:13 am

    • amirowns
      February 1, 2018 at 5:09 pm

      Creeper is becoming a 2/5 with the same cost and effect, and Bonemare is jsut increasing to 8 mana.

    January 24, 2018 at 3:41 am

    Is doomsayer a viable substitute for any of the cards in this deck? I keep getting destroyed by face hunters and tempo rogues because i don’t draw my duskbreakers in time 🙁

    • Martian
      January 24, 2018 at 10:35 am

      You could try it, but it’s probably a dead card after turn 2. I’d probably go Golakka Crawler before Doomsayer.

  21. Mike
    January 23, 2018 at 4:45 pm

    What do you think of one Book Wyrm? I put it in because I was missing one curious glimmer root. I’ve had pretty good success with it to combat the agro pirate decks. It also does fairly well against priest removing lyra and combos well with turn 7 bonemare.

    • Martian
      January 23, 2018 at 5:28 pm

      Doesn’t sound bad, if it’s working out well you should definitely keep it in!

  22. Prieeteishn
    January 22, 2018 at 6:46 am

    Why not curator? Too many 7 drops?

    • Martian
      January 22, 2018 at 10:59 am

      That’s an interesting idea. Since Corridor Creeper isn’t really a 7-drop the deck could probably tolerate it. It might be good, but maybe playing a 4/6 on 7 is slow for what this deck is trying to do at that stage of the game.

    Would medivh be good in this deck and could zola the gorgon be any good to get another spitfull summoner?

    • Martian
      January 17, 2018 at 11:10 am

      Medivh might be okay, but this deck doesn’t want to actually play it’s spells. It also has a very small draw engine, so I imagine Atiesh would be sitting on the field not getting value a lot of the time. Who knows though, it might help in some of the grindier matchups. Zola might be cool (it could also grab you more Duskbreakers), but this deck already has a lot of value and Zola would hurt your tempo if drawn too early.

      It’s hard because this deck doesn’t have a very strong turn 1 and 2. You have to be really aggressive, and if Highlander plays Raza and Anduin on curve they’re probably going to win. Just try to rush them down.

        It should be Tier 1.

            January 14, 2018 at 8:27 pm

            You’ve got a point there. This site also ranks it at Tier 2.

    January 13, 2018 at 8:04 pm

    I don’t really want to include Shadow Ascendant, but still want to keep Netherspite Historian in the deck. Any good substitutes for Shadow Ascendant other than Faerie Dragon? I really only have two empty slots for this deck and I haven’t even added Spellbreaker.

    • Martian
      January 14, 2018 at 10:29 am

      That’s been Priest’s problem since the game began, never having any good 2-cost minions. It got its first REALLY good one with Radiant Elemental, but for this deck that might as well be River Croc. You could try out Mana Geode but that seems bad to me. There’s also Acidic Swamp Ooze (for Mage and Warlock surprisingly) and Golakka Crawler.

      • WildRage
        January 14, 2018 at 11:06 am

        Good point. Acidic Ooze could work..it would also mess up Aggro Paladin just a bit..and 3 2-cost aren’t bad, so I could just put 1 Acidic Ooze and one Spellbreaker. I guess that’s as good as it goes.

      • Cruxkid
        January 20, 2018 at 3:36 pm

        FYI Mana Geode has the potential for ridiculous value but it would be tough to find it a home in this deck

      I removed a 1x shadow asc and the 2x glimmer for 1x doomsayer 1x mindcontrol tech 1x skulking geist. Doom sayer helps against aggro, mct is very useful both against aggro (pally) and cubelock and geist is very good vs razakus, jade druid warlock and many others. With this changes my winrate went up nicely

        Interesting choices. I’ll test them out. You do have me sold on Doomsayer and Geist.

    There’s a lot of aggro out there and you will consistently lose to it. If you fail to draw Duskbreaker or lack another dragon to activate its Battlecry, I’m afraid it’s over. However, versus control? It’s great.

      Yep, this is especially the case against Paladin. Getting a good draw is the only way I can beat them. Netherspite is a really good card though as it usually gives me Duskbreaker more often than not.

    Cant seem to win with this deck. Aggro pally crushes me, the priest deck that revives everything beats me, mirror matches bea…oh wait I just suck.

    Any suitable card, other than legendary to switch for Netherspite Historian?

      Faerie Dragon is ok but it won’t be as good.

        Alright thanks, I will give it a try.

    Version with pirates and keleseth is more sharp, dynamic. You can take control over the early game through pirates and snowball instead of begging for businesses vs aggressive decks

      Autocorrect. I meant duskbreaker

      You have that backwards. Cutting all your early game doesn’t make your early game stronger. Eventually drawing keleseth makes your end game stronger.

      Could you show me the Keleseth version of this deck?

    Is it bad idea to put one dragonfire potion into this deck instead of one glimmeroot?

      Only because the cost is lower than the deck wants, it will compromise your spiteful summoner. If you want an aoe I’d try psychic scream

    -1 Tar Creeper +1 spellbreaker not considering songstealer as there is too many 5 drops
    If considering 2nd spellbreaker probably -1 free from amber

    • Martian

      Those seem like decent cuts. Yeah I think songstealer is a step too far, but having Spellbreakers is good

    • Bcfrederick39

      Why dropping the star creeper? I was thinking I’d drop a glimmerroot or talon priest instead

      • DConstantine
        January 4, 2018 at 5:41 pm

        Simply because Tar Creeper loses its value later in the game it becomes a bad card which doesn’t even trade 1 for 1.
        Glimmer Roots = value, talon priest lets u make value trade as well

      I’m not sure the deck needs silence. Mind control works great already on the high priority silence targets being played right now (voidlord, valanyr, etc)

      • DConstantine
        January 4, 2018 at 5:59 pm

        Spellbreaker is a staple for me since last expansion and i never regret having it. In fact won me a lot of games. Mind control u have to wait til turn 8 with archivist if u run 2 free from amber and u have 1 mind control in hand u only have 33% chance to cast mind control else u wait til turn 10 to spend your whole turn which you dont want that in best senario, u want to keep playing minions not spells. Cutting 1 free from amber even u have 1 mind control in hand turn 8 archivist becomes a 50% mind control.

        • Matt
          January 4, 2018 at 7:04 pm

          There’s no rush though. This deck can easily hang with almost anything into the mid teen turns and save a mind control for the perfect target.

        • Matt
          January 4, 2018 at 7:09 pm

          Even if you whiff on a voidlord or whatever turn 8 with archivist hitting amber and them being able to kill it off before archivist goes off again you just shrug it off and try to grab a couple of the next 3.

    Nice writeup. I like cutting the glimmerroots for mistress of mixtures to help with agro. The deck has plenty of gas if you can get there and even outvalues most locks. Plus glimmerroot has pretty terrible win% stats in the deck.

    • Martian
      January 4, 2018 at 10:53 am

      That’s a cool idea, the deck is definitely starving for 1 drops
