Hey guy 👋. This deck is a sleeper. It may look like a meme, but that's the point. Your opponent won't know what's going on as you proceed to drop a Banana Man, and win the game. I encourage you to cheak it out and you can always find me live at Watch FloatingManaHS with me on Twitch! https://www.twitch.tv/floatingmanahs?sr=a.
Priest is horrible on ladder and will be for the next two years. It is not viable to play a deck where you have to concede at least 10% or possibly more of your games. The only reason it's viable on high legend is less warlocks. The deck is basically worthless on ladder and can't win. I have tried and tried and gotten great win rates vs meta decks, but having to concede 20% of games is not viable. I have had to concede 5 games against warlocks within 10 games yesterday. Despite winning over 60% vs other decks, I drop from D1 to D5 trying to play priest since of all the warlocks.
You aren't allowed to play priest in this meta and won't be allowed to until they remove jarraxus from the core set, which is at least two years but possibly it stays as it is.
But since I am on D5 and won't bother hitting legend this month until after the nerfs, I may as well try this hot garbage lol.
I accept a loss vs Warlock and fortunately not every opponent is a Warlock. Simple as that.
It’s still enough for Legend.
The problem is that Mage is also almost a 100% chance of losing so you can said "is enough for legend" but actually not. Even kibler quit the deck after trying very hard to stick to it and said that the meta is not good for relay on slow decks without inevitability. Which is exactly what spell mage is. Maybe Corrupt priest can have a little more of chances for the surprise factor but is not really that better. You need to understand that 30% of priest power right now is literally getting soul mirror from renew and palmreading or similar high power spells and your opponent dont playing around it. Maybe can literally bea priest just playing removal and keeping 1 big minion without 5 attack on board. That alone make almost any priest hand useless without overkill plays.
i try a lot of different builds, tech cards. There is not way priest is better than mage or warlock. And those are sadly matches that you need to win atleast 1 of 5 times to progress consistenly. Either you play a million of matches per day or just quit priest. High Rank ladder is Way different from gold, plat or diamond. People just spamm the safest deck in those ranks. In legend or high diamond? they try to do other stuff cause surprise factor again but people dont go into one trick surprise deck. They change of deck constanly. In short: nope Priest is not on a good spot.
Just break my heart everyone 💔. Lmao Priest will rise (don't quote me on that).
It gave me another idea I tried for a few games. It could work. It's mill priest. You run mukla, the 4 drop 5/5 which discovers a card and makes your opponent draw it too, the 2 drop 2/3 that draws a card for both players and the banana dudes. You can mill people. You don't really have a win condition though.
