    I found someone to cheer on at blizzcon,one of the few who tries to bring something other than mindless retarded aggro decks. And he included priest so he is the underdog. What can I say, go Hamster.

      You realize we have like no aggro decks right? Midrange is the meta right now

    Playtested it for about 10 Matches and it doesnt work very well, like every other Zoth Priest out there. No Chance vs Freez Mage, Tempo Mage, Malygos Druid, Miracle Rogue and Midrange Sham

      Just took down Naiman and his Tempo Mage. EASILY!

      Clearly not true based on Hamster going to Quarterfinals by playing against those decks. Control decks have a lot of options every turn typically, causing the piloting to need to be adjusted.

      For Mages, make sure you save your healing (Priest of the Feast, Alchemist) for the turn after they try to start to burst you. Mages almost always take 2-3 turns to get the kill. You have a very easy time cleaning up their minions, which is what they rely on to get you into kill range.

      Malygos Druid can be a rough matchup, but it just is a matchup where you have to play more aggressively off Shades, Priests, and your Deathrattles. Force them to use the removal/damage before Malygos comes down and they can’t burst you. If they can’t burst you in one turn, you can almost always recover as Priest. Easy matchup to stay at 30 before Malygos hits. Also, they offer almost not early pressure (due to spending time ramping), so keep that in mind when mulling.

      Miracle Rogue should be much easier of a matchup. Getting one turned from 30 is super unlikely without a Malygos, and you can easily clear and recover minions every turn.

      Midrange Shaman is a fine matchup, or at least an even matchup I would wager. You have tons of removal, early doomsayers ruin Troggs and other early threats, all the removal that Shamans load up on are mostly dead in hand, and you have tons hard removal for the only major threats (Thunderbloof, Thing, and Flamewreathed).

    Nice. How about Abomination instead of Alchemist? +1 deathrattle, and often the heal is irrelevant on turn 5

      I feel like that wouldn’t work. Watching Hamster’s games, he never plays it on turn 5 for the board presence, he always has better turn 5s with the deck. He always saves this card for a heal. That heal could be critical in matches like Mage where you have one turn separating their two turn burst sequence.

      As for Abom, you already have ton’s of AoE between Holy Nova/Excavated Evil on 5 drops, and Doomsayers early. Typically you don’t need extra Deathrattles off N’Zoth anyway, since you rarely play it early, since you are playing so reactively to the opponent. When your opponent is out of threats and out of removal is when N’Zoth hits, at which point getting Curator/Shades/Syl/Cairne is way overkill. Plus you don’t want to not be able to summon some of those minions. You already have 6 Deathrattles in the deck in addition to anything you Entomb, Thoughtsteal, or get off Shades.
