02/14/2014 03:44 PM4 cards with very very very low cost to destroy creatures, a lot of healing escapes, a lot of draw cards, "silence all minions...", and a lot of another annoying cards to !@#$ up with your game, that's why priests are op.

Light well, double heath, and mind control are easy to face, but the other players can't construct a deck only thinking to play against priests, that's impracticable.
I think the cards "destroy creture with 3 less / 5 more" needs to change. Maybe a single card, "destroy creature with 3 less or 5 more"....
Or maybe you just need to learn how to play the game.
Light well and double health aren't being used by Priests who want to win games, only ones using that are those that want a to see a janky combo go off, even if it works 1 out of every 10 games or something.
You don't even need to build a deck to beat priests, as long as you build a good deck it will beat priests naturally because:
1) Priests have pathetic early game
2) Priests have glaring weakness to 4 attack minions
3) Priests lack the burst/AOE damage that other control heroes have.
Combine all 3 and you have a recipe for disaster for the priest, you can take control in the early game and kill all of his minions, put down 4 attack minions to make him do unfavorable trades and then finish it off before he can cast his 10 mana mind control....that would only get 1 minion out of the 5 you have on the board.
Oh what's that? You don't play 4 attack minions? Then you just suck, some of the best minions have 4 attack:
1) Chillwind Yeti
2) Azure Drake
3) The other Drake
4) Spell Breaker
9) Dark Iron Dwarf
10) Injured Blademaster
And those are just neutral minions. think about it the only spell a Priest has to get rid of a 4 attack minion is a 6 mana spell, so best case scenario is it's still a favorable trade. Watch the other thread were Artosis (one of the best players in the world) got his !@# handed to him thanks to playing a Priest class in Fight Night. The funny thing is, the commentators were talking about how Shadow Madness is the most powerful Priest card. Shadow Madness! The class is so weak its best card is a temporary MC of an opponent card!
