Hey everyone, this is my take on Dragon priest. I used this deck half way through day 1 and had great success with it, climbing to rank 5 by the end of day 2. This guide currently includes the most common match ups for mulligans, but a full mulligan guide will be added in the near future.

Pirate Warrior

Pirate warrior will try to rush you down. Clear the board, you will want to prioritize clearing pirates to prevent card synergy. Try to avoid using Acidic swamp ooze too soon if you think you can handle the early pressure. 

With the coin : Keep Wild Pyromancer, Twilight Whelp, Wyrmrest Agent, Acidic Swamp Ooze, Netherspite Historian Twilight Guardian. If you have Wild Pyromancer : Keep Power Word Shield, Potion of Madness. 

Without coin: Twilight Whelp, Acidic Swamp Ooze, Netherspite Historian, Wyrmrest Agent.

Reno Warlock 

You will want to be proactive in this match up. If the game gets drawn out and he plays Jaraxxus, it will be tough to recover. Try to put pressure on the board early, but do not over commit to the board, as Reno warlock has strong board wipes.

With the coin : Keep Twilight Whelp, Twilight Drake, Shadow Word Pain (For Doomsayer or Imp Gang Boss). You can also keep Wyrmrest Agent and Netherspite Historian, if you already have a dragon in hand.

Without the coin: Keep Twilight Whelp,Twilight Drake, Shadow Word Pain (For Doomsayer or Imp Gang Boss).  You can also keep Wyrmrest Agent and Netherspite Historian, if you already have a dragon in hand.

Priest Mirror

Fight for the board, If you suspect they run Ysera try to save entomb for her.

With the coin: Keep Twilight Whelp,Twilight Drake, Shadow Word Pain (For Kabal Talon Priest, or Twilight Guardian).  You can also keep Wyrmrest Agent, Netherspite Historian if you already have a dragon in hand. If you have a good opener consider keeping Drakonid Operative. This card is great, typically you will want to try and discover  Drakonid Operative or Netherspite Historian, creating a loop of value. 

Without the coin: Keep Twilight Whelp, Twiliight Drake, Shadow Word Pain  (For Kabal Talon Priest, or Twilight Guardian).  You can also keep  Wyrmrest Agent and Netherspite Historian if you already have a dragon in hand. If you have a good opener consider keeping Drakonid Operative. This card is great, typically you will want to try and discover  Drakonid Operative or Netherspite Historian, creating a loop of value. 

Jade Druid

Try to flood the board early and play around swipe when making trades and heals. Put lots of pressure on Jade druid before they can set up a strong late game.

With the coin: Keep Twilight Whelp, Twilight Drake, Twilight Guardian If you are already holding a dragon Keep: Wyrmrest Agent and Netherspite Historian 

Without the coin: Keep Twilight Whelp, Twilight Drake. If you are already holding a dragon Keep: Wyrmrest Agent and Netherspite Historian 

TLDR; Fight for the board. Don't trade unless you feel you have to, since you're not really a control deck. You need to push face damage especially against Jade decks. Try to think of dragon synergy during mulligan phase and throughout the game.
