Any other Priest only running 1 SW:D now?

I think most decks have have targets for SW:D, and not having one when you need it is bad. I'm still learning toward sticking with 2. Zoo and hunter have targets for it, and even miracle rogue will sometimes give you a target either through cold blood or a double buffed VanCleef.

one death, thinking of ditching pain completely.

There's very few, if any, minions with exactly 3 attack that need to be removed the turn they drop.
For stuff with lower attack (maexxna, deathlord,sometimes even gurubashi), there's cabal shadowpriest.

miracle rouges generally are smart and only buff VanCleef. to a 4/4, before then buffing with 8/4 on the turn they attack, so there hard to get rid off if played on turn 5 (before you can holy fire) lost against a miracle who did this, then the next turn leeroyed me 3 times fo 24~ damage with the van cleef :(

I am curretly not running SW:P (Smite seems more flexible with Pyro), 2 SW:D and 1 Holy Fire. I am tempted to replace one SW:D with Holy Fire, but I think that there are (currently) too many high HP minions to justify that. I also used to run 1 Shadow Madness, but sadly had to cut it for Dark Cultist.

I thought about replacing one SW:D with BGH, but that seems even more situational than it currently is. In the end I'd rather deal with a 5 creature than having that 4/2 on the board. I don't own CSP, but if I had it I'd certainly use it as a SW:P replacement.

I only run one. It's generally only needed for absolutely major threats. Most of the time I'm able to maintain control of the board until it becomes necessary.
