No matter what I try I just cant beat Priest, at all. I have Galakrond for constant pressure, Grom and Alex for possible 2 turn lethal, NOTHING WORKS. I beat everytthing else, but priest just seems impossible. What do you guys tech in to have a chance against it?
Warrior is the only class i bother playing nowadays so if i cant beat the wave of priests on ladder ill probly just quit until new expac, pls help.
It's definitely a head smashing matchup. The biggest problem with Gala priest is the randomness with bomb damage as previously stated - in addition to the discovery of spells. I've actually played bomb warrior up to diamond 2 and will probably stick with it through legend depending on how the nerfs play out this season. Take a break if you're seeing too many priests. I've found the meta to be enough of a mixture that I don't really worry too much about priests and kinda count on them to be unfavorable to 50/50.
Your reference deck looks similar to most bomb decks - give or take. I always like to add some personal flavor to a meta deck or tinker with a tech card here or there. I'm not sure Alex would be great vs anything but priest - not to say it can't work.
You might try enrage warrior as an alternative as the burst is way higher imo.
For what looks more like a midrange deck, you need to increase the quality of your curve. Replace one Bladestorm with a WW for the sake of Battle Rage, Bloodboil Brute and cheap weenie removal. Also replace Deathwing and Alexstrasza with something more immediately assertive - heck, this is a Bomb deck, right? Throw in two Clockwork Goblins! You could even fit in some Transfer Students instead or as well! And these are some pretty good battlecries; throw in a Barista Lynchen too!
Your best bet is put x2 the weapon to get lackeys and pray very hard to RNGesus to get many dragon lackeys, try to discover both versions of Alex and Ysera for the late game and draw the less possible cards with Battle Rage, this match go to fatigue very often.
This don't will turn the match in your favor but at least give you a fighting chance.
Any smart galakrond priest player will just beat bomb warrior almost every time. They can easily fill their hand so they can overdraw bombs over and over again (while getting infinite value from their hero power).
I think I've managed 2 or 3 lucky wins vs priest as bomb warrior, out of 10-15 ish games according to my tracker haha. It's not a great matchup.

Your best bet would be controlling the board in early-mid game, while saving your bomb shuffling cards. Use the bomb shuffling cards only after the opponent used Galakrond so that he can't use his hero power to heal and negate the damage. then you can burst damage with Alex or Grom and hope to get lucky.
Not sure if it's possible with your list but I defeated Galakrond Priests this way (at least twice).
Last three Galrond priests --- i ate them. With wrenchcalibur Warrior ^^. While i use the same weapons my deck list ist's diffrent without Galrond and other expensive cards.Only one six and one seven mana card (which is Boom).
You can´t sit and wait. He will heal too much. Go for tempo or more bombs. Warrior Galrond doesn't feel good enough.
Why DO people think bomb warrior beats priest.... You need to get board pressure and that deck literally only has Blastmaster Boom and Deathwing, Mad Aspect sometimes... I beat priests easily with my highlands warrior plus Gala \Kronx package.
