    This deck beats my zoolock and evo shammie nearly every time. And everyone is playing it with like 5-6 legendaries.

    This is not a good deck and I really wish people would stop duplicating it. It’s nothing more than another duplicate “Big Priest” with a 1 or 2 card difference. It will not get beyond rank 18 in standard play and certainly has no arena value. People need to stop upvoting this garbage.

      Are you trolling? This deck is ridiculously strong. It dominated HCT, and is very prevalent at high ladder. #trollsomewhereelse

        Not trolling. I’ve been playing this deck since the start of the xpac.

        In fact, I just played 4 standard games with it and lost all 4 by turn 5. (Friday, 9/22/2017 – 10pm).

        I don’t know what leads you to believe this deck dominates unless YOU are the troll here which I’m apt to believe. This deck sucks. There are ZERO counters in the first 5 turns, you just sit there waiting for the perfect card to come out. By the time is does you’re already dead.

        Dominated, pffftt.. my ass!

          I use a variant of this deck, all I did was switch out prophet velen for the lich king and I went from rank 18 to rank 5!
          Maybe it’s the way you play the deck that makes you lose, it’s supposed to be really slow.

        Make that 5 out of 5 losses. I just lost to a hunter. 10:21PM

          6 for 6 LOSSES. 10:29 PM, turn 6 to another hunter.

          Your deck sucks! This is basics CASUAL/STANDARD play, not even ranked or arena. Stop misleading people!

            Bro. I know the struggle of copying a deck and not having it work out for you but honestly this is a complex deck. A good rule of thumb is to give yourself around 50 games to learn the ins and outs of the deck. Zalae is not misleading. He is a constant member of the Top 200 legend. I recommend dropping by his stream. Watch how he plays it. Hear from the man himself why the deck is built the way it is. HS is hard. Have realistic expectations for yourself

            11:25PM, I finally won one. I’m 16 losses, 1 win. Great deck!

            Just because you’re bad at it doesnt mean the deck is bad

            As someone who played a variation of this deck to rank 1 last season, I can tell you with 100% honesty that you are clearly just playing the deck wrong. My current standing with Highlander Priest, for the last 2 seasons, is 82 and 46. This is an exceedingly complex deck that requires good game sense and a solid sense of game planing to pooled correctly. I’m sorry if this is hard to hear, but you very clearly have no grasp on this deck if the games are going that poorly for you. Against rogue, one of the most dominant aggressive decks in the meta, I’m 27 and 6.

            Try a jaraxxus control type demon deck with a ton of board clears, I got to legend using that deck, if you have jaraxxus and twisting nether, and a bunch more control cards you should be set. Good luck!

          You do know that this deck requires a good understanding of other decks and also needs much experience in order to make it work. My advice is to be patient and learn the different plays you can do with this deck.

      none of the cards which make big priest what i is are in this deck

      • Penny
        September 23, 2017 at 11:08 am

        Nope, not buying it. I’ve been playing all morning. I have an 18% win rate. I have been maining a priest not only in WoW but also in Hearthstone. I am more than familiar with the way the cards interact with one another.

        I repeat, this is NOT a good deck.

            1) This deck leaves the player sitting in wait for cards to be drawn that may NEVER be drawn.

            2) It has no counter to the Jade deck which is one of the most common decks in the game.

            3) No counter to the high burst Hunter. When a Hunter comes out with Scavenging Hyena to build while you are still playing the draw a card game (Loot Hoarder, Novice Engineer, Northshire Cleric), if you are even lucky enough to be given these cards, he’s already outplayed you by turn 7. The more common scenario is you are sitting there with Prophet Velen and Raza in your hand, sitting in wait for a playable minion or spell.

            4) It is miserably humiliating when a steal priest steal draws from YOUR deck, the playable cards you are sitting there waiting for and beats you with your own deck!

            5) There are far too many 1 cost spells in this deck. Skulking Geist undoubtedly removes them before they come out. If you get one (or two of them, tops) you’re in a game with a deficit.

            4:09 PM – I have played this deck all morning and all afternoon. My win rate is now 6%. If this is such a great deck then someone needs to start questioning Blizzard to find out why so many people claim such a high success with it with the exception of one single player because that would mean Blizzard has singled me out to shit all over and I really doubt a corporation of this size has the time to seek out one single person. There have been a lot of criticisms of Blizzard ethics, specifically some of the devs who have been accused on too many occasions to count, of rigging the game. I am not one of the people saying it and I find it to be the least likely scenario.

            The fact is that no PRIEST DECK dominates ANYTHING right now. Priests do not have cards that stack. It is the ONLY class that doesn’t. Priests do not have a viable set of cards that can be balanced against the two examples I named above; Druid deck and Hunter deck. Heck this deck can even be overtaken by a steal Rogue and a Murloc Shaman!

            Seriously, you say you’ve reached rank 33 with this. I’m not sure why you think that is an accomplishment especially when this site if filled with other classes who are rank 32 and better who all have outplayed and humiliated this deck. I see NO priests in the top ranks.

            If you are willing to settle for mediocre, then by all means, present this deck.

    Velen is a good card for late game burst as a finisher. May put Elise if you need more value for control matchups, or ooze or tat kreeper if you face more agro decks.

    • Core

      You don’t need to put elise to tech against control since you just burst them down with your hero power most of the time, but it can work.

    What is a good replacement for Prophet Velen?

    • Kencho
      September 22, 2017 at 10:18 am

      Technically there isn’t one because Prophet Velen works really well with the zero cost hero power. However, you could replace him with someone like the Lich King or another high cost legendary that makes an impact. Maybe even Alexstrasza. You basically have 5 months until the new rotation hits, so if you want to play this deck in wild I would craft Velen. Otherwise I would consider other Kazakus Priest lists that don’t run him.
