The return of Sylvanas Windrunner and N'Zoth, The Corruptor actually marks the first time these two cards are present in a Standard environment for the first time in their history – the former supreme ruler of the Forsaken was pushed into the Hall of Fame just before Whispers of the Old Gods came out, which means their synergy is so strong it was quite literally forbidden knowledge until now for most Hearthstone players! With Lightbomb also returning, Priest has three different AoE cards to include in their deck, enabling a hyper-grindy gameplan with many Deathrattle synergies.
The featured build is partially based on the existing Quest Priest decks in Standard, albeit with a very different gameplan, aiming to re-summon a plethora of high-value Deathrattle minions to outvalue the opposition. One copy of Coffin Crasher is included for increased consistency. Though both Wretched Reclaimer and Psychopomp damage the minion pool of Mass Resurrection, we’ve deemed them worthy inclusions due to their mid-game swing potential.
Divine Hymn and Rotten Applebaum are included as anti-aggro tools, though the former can be replaced with more proactive options like Bone Wraith or Zilliax – however, we’ve preferred the spell to the minions in order to keep the resurrection pool as strong and consistent as possible. For the ultimate greed-lords out there, consider Seance, Vivid Nightmare or Archmage Vargoth to truly drive your opponents crazy!
