They really arent , i used to do that vs DH in the early days .. but priests .. well .. try sticking some rogur up their .. boards... and enjoy playing vs them.as a bonus..use a scheme for togwaggle to have fun in the late game or see them autoconcede
Was gonna say I often do it in wild because I cannot stand the res shit they have. I don’t mind playing Reno priests because it’s interesting games but the res stuff just bores the living shit outta me. It’s been around for too many years. Same as jade Druid, as soon as I see that quest being popped I’m outta there, Jade idol has to be the single most broken piece of shit card that ever existed!
There is a warrior deck which is actually favored vs priest (which is a miracle because bomb warrior, enrage warrior, egg warrior and control warrior stand little chance). Quest warrior works quite well since you get a constant stream of 4/3 minions and they just run out of answers usually. The one thing with quest warrior, depending of course how you build it, is a lot of the cards arn't very useful when thought stolen. Naturally kargarth is great if they get that and so is evil quartermaster. However, what are they going to do with questing explorer, corsair cache, upgrade, hoard pillagar, sky general kragg, captain greenskin, armored goon etc etc. Just all rubbish cards for priest.they can get things like brawl or bladestorm vs your board though.
I mean if you want to beat priest though play HL hunter, it's the most favoured vs priest! Just though quest warrior is a cool and maybe fun off meta deck that does alright vs priest.
By the way priest is not the true cancer in this game. Wait until more people learn and start playing quest warlock. The deck is practically unbeatable when played optimally and it's pure cancer. Death is guaranteed, there is really no way to win unless you can kill them on turn 5 (and sometimes they have quest done on turn 4 btw!) and each game is very long. It's probably the best deck in the game and it's probably completely busted. The hsreplay stats might show that HL hunter is favoured vs it but at high legend HL hunter loses most games. I think fast44 is 4-8 vs warlock with HL hunter (although at least one of them was zoolock). Unless both plot twists are the last two cards there is actually nothing you can do unless you are a warrior which can armor up huge. It's even favoured vs DH (but at least DH can fight back a bit). It has over 83% win rate vs priest on the stats but people make mistake. It's closer to 100%. The priest can only win if the warlock gets the worst possible draw. It's also near 100% vs other non-quest warlock decks and near 100% vs shaman.
So yea if you want to hard counter priest and you don't like HL hunter, learn quest warlock and literally always win.
I like long control games. I play the game to play the game, not to get as high rank as possible. Therefore I like playing priest. Although with the 95% losses against rogue, the balance is a bit out of place currently.
