Hey Hearthpwn, I'm infernO 24 years old italian player for Team Prophecy. I made this decklist with my friend RickM 23 years old player for team DMTK Brawlers.
We wanted to build a meta broker list to climb ladder with an Elemental based Priest with Divine Spirit + Inner Fire combos.
We both achieved legend from rank 4 and 5. This deck is not that easy and direct to play, so we made this guide to explain how to use it perfectly.
Table of contents:
First of all this is kind of Midrange Priest that generates a good board using the elemental sinergy. Is not a deck to play on curve, because you have to optimize the Elementals chain in order to activate their effects. Thanks to Radiant Elemental, Shadow Visions and Lyra the Sunshard it's easy to find out pieces for the combo.
Generally you have to mulligan for the early game, which is Northshire Cleric, Fire Fly, Radiant Elemental and if you already have one of these you can also keep Power Word: Shield and with the coin Kabal Talonpriest.
Against aggro decks is recommended to hard mulligan for Tar Creeper also (with Fire Fly and the coin you can also keep the Tol'vir Stoneshaper).
-Isn't Lightspawn a good value card with Divine Spirit and the Elemental sinergies?
I think Lightspawn is way too slow card and easily tradable because it has always its attack equal to the health and could be weakened by removals and easily traded by the opponent's board.
-Is there any sense to play this deck without Lyra the Sunshard?
Actually Lyra is a very good card, more than we thought at the start, because priest has such nice spells which cost very low that can help you cycle well with Radiant Elementals, she can easily help you to comeback lost games with nice picks (like Gadgetzan Auctioneer). She's also an elemental!
-Why no Ozruk? With that many elementals in the deck, Ozruk plus Inner Fire would just win?
Ozruk costs is way to high, and many times you won't have his body on the board for more than 1 turn since it can easily be removed from all the single target removals (like Hex, Execute, and so on).
-How does this deck perform against taunt warrior?
Against taunt warriors you need to be fast pushing face damage, using Divine Spirit and Inner Fire in the early game, in way to find out lethal using Lyra in the midgame.
Also you can beat taunt warriors using Potion of Madness on their 2-6 or 2-7 taunts to buff them with your spells and otk them!
If you face many pirate warriors and generally aggro decks:
