    Update:
    HSreplay statistics are available now:
    https://hsreplay.net/decks/N8pgyh2wKqLCpHJXFOzWne/#tab=overview

    The deck doesn’t perform in the current meta. Most decks find their powerful stuff faster than we find our combo it seems. Kind of expected that, but I wanted to try the new Cleric of Scales minion and had some hope it might work. I still think the deck is fun and not easy to pilot, but at this point I can’t recommend the deck for ladder this month. So if you want to try the new 1/1 anyways I still think you should start with this list and maybe remove all the Galakrond/Invoke cards and add some of the other regular combo priest cards like Tolvir, Ahmet and maybe Extra Arms.

    good luck testing 😉

    Hey there, butterkase here.

    I saw some people were wondering about this deck, how it works, so here is a replay I played at Legend and might explain things. https://hsreplay.net/replay/YMnViZySeJFWALVhgPpoH9

    This deck is viable? What’s the minion supossed to stick and buff? New Cleric seems good to draw Divine Spirit plus Inner Fire!

      Hey there,

      so I made a very similar list when the expansion came out, but it was just a good meme (scored about 50%). Now with the new adventure cards I hope its a bit more consistent due to the faster cycle/spell discovers. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t claim this deckversion is now good enough to compete with Druid and Rogue, the new cards are 2 days old and I wasn’t able to test it much, but since it is the last days of the month and the deck is really fun to play I wanted to share the list so people can try it out.

      Also you shouldn’t underestimate the power of the deck. With invokes and discovers you keep a good handsize for the Twilight Drakes and often you just win the game on turn 5 if you have combo in hand already. In the current meta decks are pretty fast and I would recommend not waiting too long with the combo, even if it is not lethal yet. If they don’t have silence or removal the game is just over. So combo priest ist never easy to pilot, you need to find the right timing for your combo and need to manage your draw with Clerics and Acolyte well. There is no particular minion you have to use for combo, just anything that has enough health. That can be Dragons or minions you discovered from Invokes/Galakrond.

      In general it is just a really fun deck, that can beat everything if you find combo in time, so as you could say about every combo priest, the deck is really strong, but its a question how consistent you can pull it off. I am going to try to hit legend with the deck upcoming month and if I do I probably write a guide about it.

      I hope that answers your question good enough.

      Cheers

          Well, hsreplay stats are now available and we basically confirmed once more: Galakrond Priest is a meme and s……!

          Therefore I adjusted the list and made it more in the spirit of the already existing combo priest decks, but still keeping the dragon synergy and this version works way better now (71% WR so far). Ahmet is such a huge card against Druid, you wouldn’t believe it! 😀

          Still I am not sure about Matriarch, just testing stuff, but the list really feels good now.

            Nice! I’ll try this version this night. But, how is the performance of it against Rogues? Current meta is full of Galakrond/Deathrattle Rogues or Token/Embiggen Druids 🙁

            @Garotilde

            Well, Rogue is the best class right now, the matchup for sure is difficult (I have about 45%-50% against it), but if you target Rogue specifically, you are weak in other matchups.

            There is a list on hstopdecks now that somebody hit legend with:
            AAECAa0GAqeHA6mlAw74AuUE9geNCKUJ0QrSCvIM0qUD/acD57ADhbEDmLYDmrYDAA==

            The new 3 mana spell instead of extra arms is definitively interesting. Personally I do believe Scorchers have way better synergy with the deck than Evasive Wyrms, not sure what I am missing here. Running Acolyte/Mass Dispel, thats kind of personal preference I guess.

            Anyways, the inclusion of Galakrond was a try on day 1 of chapter 2 to play something fun, but data suggests if you want to build a Dragon Combo Priest competitively you should take the shell from regular Combo Priest and include about 6 dragons and Cleric of Scales. Bwonsamdi, the new 3 mana spell and not running Acolyte, I am not so sure about, but thats all things you can experiment with.
