to climb you might need to lower the curve:
can remove: faceless / thoughtsteal / mind control
can add: holy smite / sunfury / holy fire / auchenai / earthen / harvest golem

it's nothing fancy, but it might help some of you out.

Harrison Jones? Seems way too situational a card to be useful

I don't think this deck went to Legend. The lack of proof supports my theory.

If it is or not doesn't matter much, I tried it out and it has a lot of interesting synergies and I know I'm not playing the deck anywhere near optimally.

If I sold you a computer and told you that it runs BF4 smoothly, but it didn't - wouldn't it matter much?

There's not even a single removal for big threats, this deck can't work O.o And a 10 mana Mind Control is not what I call a reliable removal.

I found the deck fun to play, and that's the only metric I really go by when playing a game.

Personally the analogy I'd use is that of taking a car out for a test drive. I'm not going to spend the effort and time required to learn how the deck works in and out and then grind ranks with it, but with the games I went through with it I found it an enjoyable experience.

My deck used some of his substitution options, and I don't have a Rag (but that didn't seem to hurt the deck that much), but in the end I found it to have good AoE, draw, and damage potentials; depending on what cards you ended up drawing.

you say to climb.. we might need to lower the curve...

IF you did go to legendary with priest, then you didn't climb with this deck that you posted. For all we know you could have climbed with a Warrior deck..

harrison jones is about sacrificing about 1 mana in stats (out of 5 mana) for its battlecry

another way of looking at it is that 20% of the cost of the card is situational
cabal shadow priest is 33% situational (4 mana is for the 4/5 minion. 2 mana is for the theft)
shadow: word death is 100% situational

I'm not claiming you'll instantly reach my rank by using this deck or that you'll be capable of playing it well enough.

it's just available to refer to, which might be helpful for some people, given how unplayable priest is.

this deck is more about putting threats on the board rather than removing whatever the enemy plays. there just aren't many early big threats that high-level players actually run.

the exception is handlocks, which are too strong for preist. it would be nice if that matchup was fair, but the cost of putting in removal is way too high, especially when jaraxus still wins even if you can neutralize the other threats.

before legend, I used +1 smite, +1 sunfury, -1 faceless, -1 mind control
at times there was also +1 thalnos, -1 alchemist

I needed more wins vs aggro climbing lower ranks and more wins vs control climbing legend.

if I did climb with other classes, I must be the best hearthstone player in the world because my ranked stats are:
13 druid wins
12 warrior wins
2 rogue wins
253 priest wins
0 hunter wins
1 warlock win
0 paladin wins
0 shaman wins
0 mage wins

it definately helps non-legendary players to see the actual deck you climbed with rather then just the end product which is catered towards a bit more late game.
