    My opinion regarding your list:

    • Geist has gotten worse over time, there are better things to run.
    • Benedictus is going to be relevant in too few matches, not worth it
    • There's an alarming lack of 5 drops. Other decks can compensate this by running plenty of 4 drops and 1 drops or 2 drops and 3 drops, but that can't work with your list (because you only have two 1 drops and one 2 drop). Why are you not running scalebane? Not only it's a great 5 drop that suits the style of spiteful decks, but it's also a dragon.
    • In the spirit of the last point, I would also add the second fungalmancer

    Other considerations:

    • The lich king isn't really necessary because you already have 2 copies of free from amber and an archivist (you don't want to make the deck more top heavy than it already is)
    • The DK is kinda spicy but it would be one of the first things to cut imo. 
    • Not sure if 2 copies of cabal shadow priest are necessary, 1 could be good enough (especially considering it's not great vs hunter)

    I decided to go with your suggestion about Scalebane to give it a try: dropping Anduin and Fungelmancer for 2 x Scalebane to increase the number / frequency of dragons.
    I dropped Fungelmancer because it's too clunky a lot of the time - I definitely think Scalebane is better than him, on latter consideration. ^_^
    On a related note, my last game was versus and Odd Warrior. I realised that Skulking Geist is amazing against OW, as it gets rid of the Shield Bashs and Omega Assemblys swinging it heavily in your favour (protects your big minions nicely)

    When i wrote " maybe (wich should imply that i am not aware what is going on at lower ranks) at lower Ranks there are a lot of Hunter, because its easy to pilot. 

    "easy to Pilot" further implys that there are more likely Hunters at lower ranks than at high Legend . 

     

     Perhaps you should look at the actual stats I posted before making incorrect statements like this. Legend rank is swamped by just as many Hunters as most other ranks. 
    If you choose to disbelieve the official stats, then that's up to you. You are allowed to do so.

    Lol this list loses heavily to odd warrior..It's not just hunters in ladder you know.

     Quest warrior perhaps. Straight Odd Control Warrior it absolutely destroys! 
    Archbishop Benedictus makes OW cry salty tears. Trust me, these are my all time favourite matchups! :-)

    Your term is simply misleading and wrong . 

     Well I'd hate to be considered incorrect in my assesment. 
    So let's check the official data report on the actual numbers....
    Hunter - the most played deck in All Ranks, Ranks 4-1 AND rank Legend.

    In fact, if you look at the numbers for All Ranks, across the game, you'll notice that Hunter outstrips all other classes by ~ twice the amount of players (to the next played class). 

    So tell me again how this isn't currently Hunterstone? XD

    WTF??? 

    Why are people still thinking its Hunterstone ? Its not!  

    That's your takeaway from this thread? Lol! XD 
    You're triggered just because someone used the term Hunterstone... oh dear...

    Hunter is way more interactive and fun to play against , and i dont see them nowhere as much as i face Priests.

    I've added my own statistics for you to this comment. Because this is what I got, this must be the same for everyone. right?
    Ooh lookee! 27% for both Hunter and Paladin! Yeah, no Hunters playing right now...
    Yay statistics!  

    If i would be a mod here , i would demand OP to take the post down , since it is clearly not "Hunterstone".

     Good thing you're not then, since you would be asking the OP to do something that is not within their power. Forum users cannot delete a thread once it is created. 
    And demanding a thread be deleted just because your #feels are hurt by a simple term like "Hunterstone" is rather childish - generally not the sort of quality that admins would look for in a Mod, usually.

     My feelings are not hurt. 

    Your term is simply misleading and wrong . 

    Just watch some streamers, all they meet is Priest and Paladin (mostly). Maybe at lower Ranks there are a lot of Hunter, because its easy to pilot.... But we shouldnt focus on those ranks , shouldnt we?

     If you're at such a low rank, then fair enough. I don't know what you're likely to face down there. 
    Up here at Rank 5-legend, there's more Hunters than any other class (except for perhaps Paladin) as the stats show.

    Quote from Joker122 >>

    if i dont have quest, what is warriors win condition??. Priest stalls game and 4 mind blasts to face with velen and malygos, mecha’thun priest or mecha’thun warlock kills the deck so easily, deathrattle hunter crushes it and has insane value.

    Odd Warrior seems so garbage with no win condition

     Control Warrior (assuming you mean, if not playing quest) is actually rather decent if used in the right circumstances. 
    Against decks like Clone Priest and other combo decks, you are basically required to armour up as heavily as possible. Try not to waste your armour with cards like Reckless Flurry if you don't need to. And basically out-tank their damage. 

    Against decks like Meca'thun, I'm afraid your outta luck. This deck will usually wreck you I'm afraid.
    Against aggro, you have the absolute best chance to win. Just keep armour up and clears with Brawls, etc. Don't use them willy-nilly. Think about the best time to use them

    Your main win condition for this deck is basically to stall them to fatigue and let them die to fatigue. If you get a priest playing Archbishop Benedict, it's pretty much concede time though....

    Guess you didn’t play when Raza Priest was so strong they nerfed Raza before rotation so wild would only have to deal with Big Barnes Priest except they nerfed Aviana & Naga Sea Witch , and still allow Barnes to scream

    “Tonight ! a Tale of True Terror, By Fire Be purged, Warriors of the frozen waste , Rise! Gorge your Hatred...” 

    So yeah Priest can fuck itself. It had its time to shine in standard back in 2017 & is still high rolling over people in 2019.  

    I guess you weren't playing further back before that when Priest was consistently the worst class in the game, regardless of the meta and the whole community were crying out for priest to be given a decent set of cards for a change. Of course, once Priest became a good class, you had the usual whiners claiming it was "too OP". That's life.

    Priest is the most hated class even when he is shit tier, imagine if he took over the meta, people will stop playing hearthstone, i want him to be tier 1 just like KFT :(, but everyone else will hate the class more and more. 

     

    Have you tried Spirit of the Dead? your deck is minion heavy, could do wonders with it. 

    That's because you can only play pussy Anduin, unless you got Tyrande from the Twitch promotion ages ago while paladin has 3 hero's to choose from, 4 if you bought the Halloween promotion.

     I don't think he was referring to the class character skin...

    you seem to have very few Duskbreaker activators. A total of 6 dragons seems too little. It seems to want to add different aspects together, taking the Fatigue-approach from the Quest-build, the Control-approach and the Spiteful-approach, which, in my mind, can get messy.

    Thanks - yes, there are few dragons. On one or two occasions I have found myself needing to topdeck one. I suppose that this is the risk when playing a deck that covers other bases like this one does. The reason being that I have found most standard Spiteful decks fall very hard when up against control or late game decks. So the tech is in there to help defeat those matchups (or have a good chance at least)

    That being said, you do mention you've been doing well. But as with all such statements, I would like to know at what ranks you've been piloting this deck, and what your winrate is. Especially in regards to when playing certain classes.

     I played it roughly from rank 9 through the rank 5 up to rank 4. At which point i wanted to try something different thanks to the ledge safety. :-)

    I still disagree about most stuff but oh well, it's your deck after all :)

    Regarding the keleseth thing, funny as it might be, please don't hold it, it's not worth it

     Just to clarify, I'm not telling you that you are "wrong", just that I think there are counter arguments to your points and am putting them forward. I appreciate (and am grateful for) the feedback.
    THank you! :-)

    My opinion regarding your list:

    • Geist has gotten worse over time, there are better things to run.

    Possibly. I've found him to be incredibly good against Hunters using Trackign and Hunter's Mark, etc though.
    Do you have an alternative suggestion?

    • Benedictus is going to be relevant in too few matches, not worth it

    I think this might have to be a subjective decision. I use him frequently myuself - especially against the Control Warriors that are trying to counter the Hunter matchups. Of course, I agree he is not useful for every matchup for sure. But a lot of control mirrors go to fatigue and he is great then. I just played a game against BS Mage and managed to get a copy of his Jaina which saved the game for me. :-)

    • There's an alarming lack of 5 drops. Other decks can compensate this by running plenty of 4 drops and 1 drops or 2 drops and 3 drops, but that can't work with your list (because you only have two 1 drops and one 2 drop). Why are you not running scalebane? Not only it's a great 5 drop that suits the style of spiteful decks, but it's also a dragon.

    I have found Scalebane simply doesn't work very well in this deck. He is very slow and often you are working with a fairly empty board so he doesn't do much to help. The dragon part is certainly useful, of course, but there just isn't room for him from what I've found. I've always got something to play on turn 5, usually.

    • The lich king isn't really necessary because you already have 2 copies of free from amber and an archivist (you don't want to make the deck more top heavy than it already is)

    Granted, he could be removed. I might be more inclined to ditch the archivist though, as the Lich King is simply better than him in most cases. 

    • The DK is kinda spicy but it would be one of the first things to cut imo. 

    Yeah, you could switch him for something. But tbh, he is REALLY good against Hunter when Rexxar comes online, however. He is the go to card for dealing with huge Stealth minions :-)

    • Not sure if 2 copies of cabal shadow priest are necessary, 1 could be good enough (especially considering it's not great vs hunter)

    Definitely need 2 in my opinion, even against Hunter (when Rexxar appears)

    Aside from that:

    Quote from scorpyon>>

    Some other points for strategy:
    - Against aggro, look to play Prince Keleseth early. Against any other deck (especially control), don't play him until you have at least one Twilight Acolyte in hand otherwise it will make your Cabal Shadow Priest a lot worse.

     I find that highly questionable. Spiteful decks are tempo/beatdown decks. Yes, you can switch gameplans, but not playing keleseth just to make your stealing better is most likely going to hurt you more than it will help you.

    Oh I don't know about that - Shaman has held the "most hated" class since Beta, if you played as far back as then. Priest was bottom of the pile for a long time until Dragopn Priest was finally a thing (and then KFT brought the Raza Anduin package)

    Have you tried Spirit of the Dead? your deck is minion heavy, could do wonders with it. 

     I have tried with it occasionally. It seems to be hit and miss a lot of the time, but I might try a bit more fiddling with it to see if it could work.
