I have no hope for any Priest deck except Silence Priest. Handlock and Murloc Shaman are looking very powerful in the next meta, so Control Priest will be garbage. Resurrect Priest was not dead enough that Blizzard printed Mad Summoner, such a good counter to new rez cards.
At least arena looks decent for Priest since Secret Agent is coming back with Talonpriest and Dark Cultist.
And no i do not play only smorc, i am known as a control player (handlock mostly) and i still hate priest more than any other class since beta. It's the only class which more boring than warrior and that says a lot. Plus in my experience it has the most toxic playerbase in ranked. Heck, even lich king had to silence anduin lol!!!
When I started playing Hearthstone, paladin was my main class and I hated facing priest even more than hunters. Also, I agree the class is boring as f...k to play. I believe the problem lies in the few decision making the class has to offer every turn and, especially, on its little flexibility to adapt to different circumstances during a match, which is the main difference with, for example, a class like warlock when playing control.
Most priest decks are control-combo, which is as flexible as decks can be without being completely broken. As far as decision making goes, Priest decks have as much decision making as any other control deck.
IDK wtf Brode and company were smoking when they designed Priest Classic/Basic cards and Hero Power, so insanely bad compared to other classes. The only priest card that is always good is Cleric, others need lots of support cards to even be tier 2 viable.
