Holding onto the Coin from the Gilded Gargoyle can be really helpful in activating Lyra later on.

The faithful cleric prayed at bended knee before the old, rusted altar. “Not many visit our cathedral in Gilneas these days”, he thought to himself solemnly. Suddenly, and without warning, the surrounding candles flickered and died as if all the oxygen had been sucked out of the room. Knowing the dangers that roamed the woods and town alike, he reached for his staff and recalled the incantations of his youth. The Priest slowly rose to his feet, and prepared for whatever lie in wait for him. “But you will never be prepared for me, cleric”, a sinister voice called from outside the windows. Two impossibly humongous green eyes glared in at him from the darkness. “Forsake your pity gods and come with me. Discover what real power is.” 

This is an odd-only Priest control deck. There really isn’t any combo or gimmick here, just a lot of taunts, healing, and odd-cost cards.

—-The Gameplan—-

The beaters of the deck are the Quartz Elemental‘s. The immense healing Baku offers help keep these guys online most of the time. Casing Inner Fire on these bad boys makes them even more of a threat (especially considering silencing them to remove the Inner Fire also removes the “can’t attack” rule). 

Rotten Applebaum and Witchwood Grizzly are no pushovers, either. Same rule with the Elemental applies to the Bear: Inner Fire brings it from “good” to “I win”‘, and if it gets silenced, its still a 3/12. 

The board wipes, Holy Nova and Psychic Scream really help against board flood decks (like odd Paladin). 

Alexstrasza can help finish off the most hardy of opponents, and Lyra the Sunshard can offer solutions, with a little help from RNG. 

—-Replacements & Considerations—-

Zola the Gorgon is not necessary, but is useful for replaying threats/defenses. 

Mind Control Tech is something I’m trying out. It can be played as just a 3-drop, but later on it could be used for so much more. 

I only opened one Nightscale Matriarch, but if I had two I would probably find a second spot, as this card usually needs to be removed quickly. 

—-Conclusion—-

This is a for fun deck, but it has seen some moderate success against competitive decks. Let me know what you think of it, and if you have any suggestions!

    I really like this deck and have had some fun testing it. However, I feel that if you want to run odd priest with Innerfire you should include Glitter Moth. It is a pretty crappy card, but because you run such high health cards and Innerfire, it would make sense to at least include 1 copy. Chameleos is also a really good tech card for this deck!

      Thanks for the ideas! I didn’t think the moth would be very good, but if I open it I’ll put it in the try it! Also, if I had Chameleos I would definitely put it in
