How do I beat Control Priest

Posts: 23
I run a control warrior deck. I have lost vs control priest every time I've played them. It's so incredibly frustrating for me. I have no problem beating other decks (disregarding RNG horrible games). Does anybody else have this problem? I'm basically running this deck minus Gorehowl and I have Cairne Bloodhoof added in. http://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone-mid-budget-warrior-control-deck

Priest is the hard counter to super lategame control, so you have to accept your winrate is gonna be low against them.

This is the one that's currently being played in EU Legends. myself included (Copy-cat !@#$s):
http://www.hearthpwn.com/deckbuilder/priest#25:2;33:1;38:2;153:2;209:2;303:1;372:2;401:1;409:2;431:2;495:1;498:1;503:1;539:1;542:2;547:2;600:2;656:2;671:1;

To explain Geddon because it's a bit of a strange pick, he fits the curve better than a second Mind Control and Giants are really hard to play with Priest. He's also really flexible in Priest since you can basically turn your hero power into Hunter's, or keep big stuff on the board, while he can't. I feel he's really good.

EDIT:
Just did testing vs. every other Control Deck, the only one it has a less than 60% winrate vs. is Giants Pally and Druid w/ FoNRoar, against Control Warrior it had 90% over 10 games.

It's a pretty standard Control Priest with A LOT of respect given to Aggro. The deck is performing way above my expectations though.

There would seem to be only 27 card in the link you made?

Yeah, there was just no indication that I could scroll down and it didn't occur to me at first. Sadly, I am short a Baron and a Ysera but it's something to think about at least.

They aren't integral to deck IMO. Ysera can be replaced with a second Mind Control without really changing anything in the decks power, Baron with a second Holy Fire or Holy Nova though this does weaken the deck somewhat against aggro and it's less flexible.
