Did you even TRY your own deck?
It doesn't work the way you think it does.
I thought about this for a while -- but no, you don't want to add the Quest here.
If you add Quest, you need cards like Cabalist Tomb and maybe Babbling Book to generate spells to help clear it.
And ultimately, it does NOT help you to win. You still lose if you could not stall long enough or don't draw Antonidas fast enough, even if you clear the Quest OR have the rest of your combo pieces.
I would rather use the slots to put in more stall / card draw, or Hemet to thin your deck further.
Hey Tera! Stumbled upon your Prophet Velen Priest deck while I was looking for ideas here on Hearthpwn on how to make a C'Thun + Prophet Velen Priest deck work, at a friend's request.
I still remember having a lot of fun with your Dragon Warrior deck from a previous season! So I was thrilled to try out your Velen Priest deck -- except with a few alterations as I wanted to make C'Thun + Prophet Velen work.
After some testing with several card replacements, I settled on removing 4 cards from your list to put in some C'Thun minions:
These replacements probably make the deck worse. But when I played a couple of games with it, I realize that people drop their guard when they see a Disciple of C'Thun get played -- they don't expect Prophet Velen or Mind Blast or AOE clears for days. And that's managed to net me quite a few wins -- against Zoolock and Aggro Shockadin even.
While comparing your deck with other Control/Velen/C'Thun Priest decks, I realized that nowadays to make Control Priest even playable in the current meta, you need a core of about 22 cards -- for removal and draw.
That's kinda sad, if you think about it. But it is what it is, and I'm thinking of taking that core of 22 cards and trying different things with the remaining 8.
Thanks for putting out a guide for this deck.
No Bloodhoof Brave?
I think you need to cut 2 cards to fit in 2 Bloodhoof Brave somewhere. Seems like this list will lose to aggro/flood decks quite easily before turn 7.
I would also cut 1 more card for Harrison Jones which is key for Shaman and Paladin matchups IMO. Though without having tried your list I'm not sure which 3 cards I should cut. Which 3 do you feel are the weakest here?
I'm giving your deck a downvote because you do not turn on VIDEO ARCHIVES for your Twitch stream, and thus there is no proof that you reached Legend with this deck.
This is not the first time I've seen one of your decks with a link to your stream and no archives whatsoever. I don't know when the hell you stream. If you don't have video archives, even if I somehow manage to catch your stream, you won't be playing this particular deck anyway -- so what's the point of watching your stream?
Pretty decent list, but it definitely feels like it can be improved IMO.
Only played a few games with it. Generally I like the decklist quite a lot. Especially love the inclusion of Alexstraza here.
However, I do not like Twilight Elder's inclusion. Is there a point to him? He just comes out and dies after 1 turn most of the time.
Feel that I could use a few more spells (to activate Execute, for instance) and a slight bit of draw power.
But overall a really good list. Props for this; it was a lot of fun playing it. :D
You made/copied a deck that isn't viable*, all so you can promote your youtube video. It isn't your hearthstone video using this deck, it is a series of unrelated clips you didn't make. It appears you made an account just a few days ago for the sole purpose of promoting your youtube account. Please stop.
*To be fair, I didn't test this deck, perhaps I'm wrong about it being viable. Doesn't change my point about this deck being used for the sole purpose of promoting an unrelated youtube video.
It's not that I play like shit, I play control priest in ranked and do great, the fact that if your cleric dies, or you can't get the card draw early on, your screwed. And why doesn't this deck run SW:D?? This deck you have to mulligan to soul priest and circle to have a chance. The 3 times I won is when I held those from the start. I pity anyone who plays this bullshit deck. And other comments below say that this deck needs work.
Unless you are playing against a lot of Control, I don't think there is room for Bloodmage. I'd prefer playing a Flametongue Totem but even then, all the other cards are strictly better for an Aggressive shell.
I typically will go for the turn 1 abusive if i have no other plays. Ill especially go for it if I have a solid follow up Im willing to get tempo for.
Holy shit , this deck is awsome !
When I try out decks I ask myself
8 games to me is enough to get a general feel for the deck and I would rather play shaman/hunter if I was playing an aggro deck in comparison to this one.
