Came up with a pretty interesting alternative that I think some people will enjoy. I've been playing it all morning and I think it's a bit more consistent and a lot less clunky. It uses another raise dead instead of y'shaarj which makes the deck much more flexible and better against aggro. A couple other neat changes too, check it out.
Hey guys, figured I'd share a fun unique deck that I used to get to legend this season. I've had a really good win rate with it, and as someone who enjoys playing priest and control, I know these have been trying times for both. Below is a video of me going over the deck and explaining card choices and synergies.
A little side note -This deck can actually beat tickatus (about 50% of the time), which I talk about in the video briefly...
If you enjoy this deck and or have questions, please comment and like. Thanks and Have fun.

Wanted to post a little update...
So obviously I'm going to keep trying to improve this deck. Today I logged in to do some the weekly quests and figured I'd try some cards that have been on my mind lately, specifically wand maker. I decided to put in wand maker for the flash heal and claw machine. One thing priest struggles with is that a lot of it's cards are reactive. Both flash heal and claw machine are generally pretty reactive cards. Wand maker, is a card you can play whenever you want. Its a pretty clear mulligan target, applies early pressure/ board presence, and the priest 1 mana spell pool is quite small and good. I'm not sure if its "better" yet, but its sure looking promising... I went 7-1 in legend today (small sample size i know). Anyways, if you want to try 2 wand makers in place of a flash heal and claw machine, it's likely a safe bet.
Another thing, I haven't recorded any game play, but I will link some replays from the deck tracker if your interested in seeing how I play this deck. I guess I'll link the games from today.. the game I lost isn't really worth posting, I died on turn 5.

Well I played a little more because I wanted to really test out the wandmakers, and I think it is actually better so I've updated the deck list. I've gone 13-2 today, heres deck tracker with the match ups. Didn't hit much paladin (lost turn 5 to the one i did), but this deck generally performs very well against it. I think wandmakers should make it even stronger against paladin.
