BTW, I don't play Priest, but I've learn how to not lose every game agaisnt them. if you want more tips, just ask.
For an example, if you play a mage. You pop a good minion and attack only once with it, then the priest uses mind control, your first reaction is obviously "OH !@#$". However if you play it smart, you don't play strong minions if you can't polymorph it on the next turn. It's the same on every class, for example execution on warrior or assasinate on rogue.
Ofcourse a better option is to play many minions instead of one big, but if you decide to play that big one you need to be prepared to destroy it before he can use it. If you play many weaker minions, mind control is not worth it anymore, it may be a saver for one round if he takes a taunt or something, but rare minions are worth the 8 mana crystals that it costs.
Use common sense, there is counter-cards for every move on every class, the only question is if you know how to play it smart.
There are several different classes with cards that you have to anticipate. Polymorph, Blessing of Kings, Windfury, Assassinate, Execute, etc. All of a class's tools are events that you need to anticipate in a game. Mind Control is priest's biggest basic trick to pull off with basic cards.
Well played, sir.
