I think this deck is pretty hard to play. You really need to calculate your chances of getting the minions you want and the draw %. It takes practice. There are many plays to make all the time, but often you need to wait a turn or two before throwing things out. You need to think 2-3 turns ahead and know your opponent deck so you can figure out what they'll play on the following turn. Lethal can be done in one turn Lesser Diamond Spellstone into Mind Blast Holy Smite = 34 dmg. Sometimes you need to do it over two turns. You can also Eternal Servitude and ress Malygos -> Vivid Nightmare -> Mind Blast -> 2x Holy Smite = 39 dmg.
The reason for not running Radiant Elemental is simply because of the inability to clear board VS aggro and Wild Pyromancer does a better job. Yes the combo will be harder to pull of, but I haven't had any problems with not getting the dmg done. I've won many games just with one maly or velen, so don't concede if you overdraw or they hex/sheep one of them. You really need early game clear VS aggro and card draw to cycle fast.
Always keep: Wild Pyromancer Acolyte of Pain Power Word: Shield Shadow Essence
VS aggro: Spirit Lash
VS aggro: In some cases keep Psychic Scream
Odd Paladin: (Favoured) 80/20
Save Coin for Wild Pyromancer combo into Power Word: Shield
Keep in mind you can Mass Dispel -> Spirit Lash after he plays Level Up!
Even Warlock: (Favoured) 70/30
Keep Shadow Word: Death.
Cube Warlock: (Favoured) 70/30
Keep Shadow Word: Death.
Spell Hunter: (Favoured) 70/30
Keep Shadow Word: Pain. Try to find Psychic Scream so he gets minions into his deck = no Rhok'delar To My Side!
Clear his 4 wolves turn 5 with Pyro/spirit lash/holy nova combo.
Recruit Hunter: (Favoured) 70/30
Try to find Psychic Scream with or without Shadow Visions
Taunt Druid (Favoured) 70/30
Keep Psychic Scream Shadow Word: Death. They often ramp fast to turn 8 into Lich king.
Token Druid: (Favoured) 70/30
Psychic Scream his 1/1 minions into deck. If he Wispering Woods into Soul of the Forest turn 8 you have the other option with pyro clear.
Even Shaman: (Even) 50/50
Hope for board clear cards and he doesn't have hex on Velen/maly
Shudderwock Shaman: (Favoured) 60/40
You often loose if he has Hemet turn 6 otherwise good win conditions. Save Shadow Word: Death on your Prophet Velen turn 10 to avoid Hex. They tend to hex the 5/5 copies from Shadow Essence.
Rogue's are Unfavoured. (40/60)
If you survive to turn 8 you have good chances of winning. I won a lot of matches VS miracle by Eternal Servitude Prophet Velen -> Holy Nova = 4 dmg to all spiders.
Eternal Servitude malygos into spirit lash = 6 dmg to all and full heal.
They sap maly or velen, hope they kill them instead.
Big mage: Unfavoured. (35/65)
Hope they doesn't sheep maly/velen. They play Skulking Geist so you might need a copy of Mind Blast
Can you post your winrates? I started using this on Rank 9 and now sit at Rank 4 with about 58%.
Also please note what specifically didn't work, I think there are some reasonable suggestions what to substitute when facing certain decks in the comments.
Even being harder to play than a lot of decks you should be able to achieve a higher winrate than 25%.
U probably play aggro all the time
Call it Velygos. Please.
In this deck you will always resummon one of eachwith spellstone. It resummons different minions.
I did just this. I have not had this much fun in HS in a long time
I've been playing your deck for a while and here are my personal edits. I took out the Binding Heal, both Acolyte of Pain, both Wild Pyromancer, and added 1 more Shadow Word: Pain and Shadow Word: Death, 1 more Vivid Nightmare and 2 Radiant Elemental
This deck isn’t going to compete with meta decks. Take out the acolyte and pyromancer, add in radiants and Lyra. Also run another vivid nightmare, those work so well with Lyra and radiants.
My only issue is hitting Wild Pyromancer or Acolyte of Pain off of Shadow Essence is really bad. I'd put in Dragon Soul or Lyra the Sunshard if your casting all of these spells maybe.
Can it work at rank 15-14 against aggro like odd paladin? Europe btw ( in case there is a big difference between NA and EU servers)
I don't think you will win against odd pala with this deck
Odd Pala is one of the best matchups. Because of pyro and Rez effects and spirit lash you can continuously keep recruits off the board. Also scream is insane. I haven’t lost to paladins yet, rogues and druids are much worse.
I had a lot of fun with this deck! I believe everyone should give this deck at least one try. not only is it super satisfying but it also works decently well on the ladder too! Most people are just not expecting this when they see you are playing!
Here's a video showcasing the deck in action which I hope you all enjoy!
I'd see Glenn Close in the role of Malygos and Kevin Spacey in the role of Velen (because you know,he shares the same reputtation as some religious)
Just another mindblast priest.
I tried this the other day and it was amazingly good, but it really depends on luck if you win or not. If you get a good Shadow Essence you mostly win, but if you have both Velen and Malygos in your hand it is really difficult to win.
This deck can not compete in the meta. You need make some changes to get that combo.. Way to many minions. You trying to combo a OTK and big priest deck that has to many minions and no way to survive. I would like to see a video and guide before I would even consider giving a thumbs up here. I can not see you winning with this deck. Concept is there but you need changes to the deck.
I played last season Rank 5 to Rank 2 4 stars with a similar decklist. If u want, i can share some replays from Decktracker.
I'm glad to help, bro!
I'll show u some matches.

interesting deck so far
allows to burn your own cards, while keep the combo
