There’s a lot of Barnes synergy in this deck, but you can also potentially bring back the card you brought out from Barnes with Resurrect and Onyx Bishop.


-2 Mind Vision, +1 Brann Bronzebeard, +1 Baron Geddon

    Constantly getting smashed by hunters. This list is terribly slow and im always too far behind to catch up. Wild Pyro is shit. Bad resurrect target/Barnes target, not to mention I hardly ever get use out of him in the first place. I’d rather run Achy Priest and Circle. Atleast it actuàlly cleans the board

    Refer to Kolento’s, I put bog creeper and shadow word:horror instead of baron and excavated evil. I don’t like baron..

    Is ysera really needed? I have that one card 4/5 legendary where its inspire: add a spell to your hand could i use that?

      It is a decent replacement but Ysera is better, I don’t find her such an important card if you got nexus.

        Wouldn’t call it a replacement by any means, but I still agree, Ysera in this aggressive meta isn’t crucial by any means. But don’t put Nexus in the deck, choose another high mana/high impact card, any strong legendary between 7-10 mana should be enough until the meta slows down, then you can craft Ysera.

        Don’t make Barron, yserj can be more useful but he is a slow card for this meta. I suggest Yserj only if you really really wanna spent dust.

    Stupid question. Can resurrect bring back the 1/1 Barnes minion, or will it be the original minion at full health?

    What could i use instead of baron geddon? Rag LL? also I’m not really a fan of the wild pyromancers as it makes barnes less consistent(any workable replacements here??). what about instead of baron geddon, soggoth? it has better stats and is nice against aggro while also being annoying for control decks to remove. an

    this deck feels so bad

    • Leandro
      August 25, 2016 at 1:39 am

      Well, with 2 replacements (-Brann -Y’shaarj +Bog Creeper +Entomb) I went from rank 5 to 2 in just a day on NA server. So insn’t a bad deck imo.

    baron geddon replacement?

    How to win versus aggro shaman? He kills us in a turn only with weapon and spells.

      Hard mulligan for Excavated Evil against Aggro Shaman

      • Leandro
        August 24, 2016 at 12:08 am

        But the board ins’t the problem. The problem is the Doomhammer and Lava Burst plus Lighting Bolt.

      • Leandro
        August 24, 2016 at 12:14 am

        And also Rockbiter Weapon, for sure.

    Why Brann? As far as I can see there is only one card (barnes) to combo it with?

    • Jan
      August 22, 2016 at 2:17 pm

      Also the onyx dude works wonders with him, injured blademaster on the other hand…

    • f8thsux
      August 22, 2016 at 3:26 pm

      You don’t want to make the mistake of overloading your deck for a specific synergy. Brann works with Onyx (x2) and Barnes. Also, if Barnes pulls a copy of Brann, that sets you up for Onyx. That’s more than enough to justify him being swapped in 🙂

    Replacement for Y’Shaarj?

    • DomonKassui
      August 23, 2016 at 5:52 am

      Run a 2nd Entomb if you don’t have Y’Shaarj yet.

    The deck is good against aggro and control whilst also being fun to play !

    The only card I have a problem with is Ysera, she is too slow and is often a dead card.
    I was thinking of replacing her with Soggoth which could win games if I get it with barnes and resurrect it against an aggro deck.
    Any suggestions for a good replacement ?

    • Bling
      August 22, 2016 at 9:28 am

      She is really good barnes value, and combo that with rez you could just have multiple early Yseras which are crazy PLUS even without rez a 4 mana 3/4 gain a dream card is really good too.She cab also be pulled by a yshaarj pulled by barnes. soggoth on the otherhand is as great. She is also great against a control deck, howver there will be games where she isnt used. If your looking to replace her, maybe a thaursan or carine will suit you better.

      Soggoth can’t be healed though, why not bogchamp instead?

    Been using this deck (minus Y’saraaj, plus emporer t) and have been doing pretty well. A couple of times I’ve been rushed in seconds by hunters, but against most other decks I’ve won most of them. I’ve even done pretty well against zoo loosing only about half, which for a control priest is pretty good. It seems decent on ladder, but most importantly its fun!

    Whats the reason behin mind Vision in the Deck ?

    • Krampus
      August 21, 2016 at 11:13 am

      Cheap spell for priest of the feast I guess

    • Scrylite
      August 21, 2016 at 12:26 pm

      Trigger priest of feast & wild pyromancer and nets you a card

    Would expect feedbacks pls 🙂

    replace for y’shaarj

    Replacement suggestion for Y’Shaarj?

    Options of mine seem to be are Cairne, Emperor T, Kodorider, Bog Creeper… Guess I have to go with Cairne, however underwhelming.

    • sseugg
      August 20, 2016 at 2:45 pm

      I replaced y’shaarj with cairne. I also replaced one wild pyro with an extra entomb b/c Barnes kept grabbing the pyro, which is almost useless then, and I felt it had enough aoe with the one pyro, two novas, and two excavated’s. While it probably won’t hold up to ladder, it has a positive win rate, and is SUPER fun to play. Would reccomend

        I replaced him with an Arcane Giant

        • DomonKassui
          August 23, 2016 at 5:55 am

          Would you be happy if Barnes grabs a 1/1 Arcane Giant? Better run a 2nd Entomb instead.

          • ChibyKnight
            August 24, 2016 at 3:53 am

            Yes you would be happy because of ress and bishop also good when ysera pulls him out. I have 2of them bcs i don t have the legendaries.

          • ChibyKnight
            August 24, 2016 at 3:55 am

            Y shraj pulls him out*

    I JUST played a guy using this, it was over when his Barnes made a ya’shaarg I couldn’t kill for 2 turns and it grabbed Sylvanas and ysera!

    I dont really think this is particularly effective

    • logibox
      August 24, 2016 at 7:53 am

      yeah i agree, it feels very preist

  22. AmbitionStorm
    August 19, 2016 at 2:00 pm

    i made my own version of this deck, using silence for extra 0 mana heal with feast, and to bring the branes summon back to full stats, but this one is way better.
    i recommend it for all the new ress priests popping out 😛
