This deck as simple as it is kicks !@#.I never lost this this deck in the last 15 games and I m currently Gold one star.

I just made a few changes for myself which include some crafting but it IS NOT necesarry,these are just personal preferences:
-Instead of 2 x Ironfur Grizzly I replaced them with 2 x Tauren Warrior
-Instead of 2 x Chillwind Yeti I replaced them with 2 x Lightspawn

This is the proof that you don t need to pay money for cards to win against others who do.
After 2-3 games you will see the potential of this deck

This deck works, but I threw in a lightspawn and Velen instead of the crocolisks, and it works great too. Thanks!

I am trying to find some replacements for crocolisks and novice engineers aswell atm and one card would be Ironbeak owl which is a must have in any deck.
The card Silence would just fill a spot.

Ironbeak > Silence

In my opinion, holy smite is pretty meh. Priests already have an insane amount of board control with the 4 shadow word cards and holy nova, so I drop the holy smites for divine spirit. DS just opens up so many options. It's true that it's vulnerable to silence/poly/hex, but if you DS your Northshire cleric early game, for example, you essentially force your opponent to use silence/poly/hex on a one mana minion, which means you don't have to worry about as much cc on your big taunters. Also, as far as minions, I notice you included quite a few low drops. I would switch both novice engineers to owls (you already have insane draw power with double cleric, and owl battlecry is AMAZING), and then drop 2 of darkscale healer/river crocolisks for temple enforcer/lord of the arena/stormwind champion/prophet Velen (really anything to give some more late game umph).

@stefan Did he do anything to you? It's not like he claimed it to be the best deck. In my opinion it's a pretty good deck for a basic card deck only.
You also have to consider that not everyone is a "Pro" and they just try to help others and enjoy the game. So be thankful instead of trashtalking.

This deck is actually virtually identical to the one I'm using at the moment - as I'm waiting to acquire the rarer cards. The only difference I had, until not long ago, was 2x Lord of the Arena instead of the yetis.

And no, stefan, OP is not trolling - I have an overwhelmingly high win rate with my deck at 3-star masters ^^

I had to make a few changes to it, but overall, it's fairly good.

Thank you sir. I am currently using this deck and have not lost a match. Also before today I had absolutely no experience using a priest so the deck can't be to bad.

This build is no lie. I just won against another priest using very strong cards, even though he got the early advantage with Northshire clerics and such, while I had to wait three turns helplessly. He even had a Ragnaros!

Picking crocolisk over ooze is a mistake.

Started playing Hearthstone 3 days ago. Advanced to Platinum 3 today with this amazing basic deck.

PS. Only had troubles with Hunters. Their beast combos are just too strong.

PPS. Advanced to Master 2 with this deck!

I've managed to obtain 2 Star Master with this deck (I've only made slight variations). Sure, better decks could be made, I have much better cards in my collection...but this deck works and why mess with something that doesn't need fixed? :)
