Frozen Throne Highlander Priest deck list guide - August 2017 - Hearthstone

Our guide to playing the latest Frozen Throne version of Highlander Priest

Our Kazakus N'Zoth Highlander Priest deck guide features the best deck list for Season 41, with Mulligan advice, strategy tips, card combos and synergies.

Highlander Priest was a relatively new Hearthstone archetype to hit the Un'Goro metagame, and is widely tipped to do well in the Frozen Throne era. It's stuffed to the brim with removal options, while key card Raza the Chained ensures a steady stream of free healing is available to you throughout the match. Survive to the end-game, and you've got cards like N'Zoth the Corruptor who'll summon a feast of expired Deathrattle minions back onto the board.

It's not a particularly easy deck to play well, but our Highlander Priest guide contains one of the best deck lists you can make use of right now. We've also got some advice for surviving the Mulligan phase, and a completely breakdown of all the card synergies contained in this particular version of the deck.

FROZEN THRONE UPDATE

We're looking to TicTac's early take on Highlander Priest for the earliest stages of the Frozen Throne meta. Please kind in mind though that this is a deck with a lot of cards in it which only increases the odds that there'll be some pricey ones which don't make the cut.

We'll be monitoring this one closely and will update our recommended deck list if we think there's a better one you should be playing!

Our Frozen Throne: Best Decks and Guides hub contains everything you need to get stuck into the new meta!

Frozen Throne Highlander Priest deck list and strategy

Your objective here is simple on paper but a little trickier in the live game, as you have to be careful to use the right removal option on the right target. In broad terms though, you want to focus on clearing down the enemy's board in the early game, before gradually building out a presence of your own from the mid-game onwards.

As we've mentioned already this is quite tricky to achieve, and you'll need a solid understanding of the current metagame if you're to prosper with what is something of a low tier deck! Study the combo section further down the page for a better idea of what to expect when playing Highlander Priest.

Cards like Radiant Elemental, Shadow Visions, Shadow Word: Pain, Shadow Word: Death, Gluttonous Ooze and Stonehill Defender are going to be important keeps in just about any match-up.

Once the Frozen Throne meta has been established we'll have hero-specific advice for you to follow.

Frozen Throne Highlander Priest tips, combos and synergies

These are the most important card combos you need to be thinking about when playing this particular version of Highlander Priest:

- Bloodmage Thalnos increases the output of all your damage-dealing spells by an extra point of damage.

- When Gluttonous Ooze is played against an opponent wielding a weapon, they'll lose it and you'll gain Armor equal to its Attack value.

- Any healing effects that are applied to your hero will result in Happy Ghoul costing zero Mana to play on the same turn!

- If you can inflict a little damage against your own minions before casting Holy Nova and Northshire Cleric together, you can gain a seriously hefty number of cards for your hand.

- Your spells become cheaper by one Mana for as long as Radiant Elemental remains out on the board. Most notably, this means that the following cards will cost absolutely nothing: Binding Heal, Potion of Madness and Power Word: Shield.

- Every spell you cast while Priest of the Feast is on the board will cause three points of Health to be restored to your hero.

- Take a look at our Kazakus guide for more details on how to craft potions with this character.

- Don't forget that Dragonfire Potion affects your own non-Dragon minions as well as the opponent's!

- When N'Zoth, the Corruptor is put into play, he'll flood the board with Deathrattle minions that expired earlier on in the match.

- The Lich King rewards you with a Death Knight card at the end of each of your turns. It'll be one of the following eight:

CostNameDescription
2Death CoilDeal 5 damage to an enemy, or restore 5 Health to a friendly character.
2Death GripSteal a minion from your opponent's deck and add it to your hand.
2ObliterateDestroy a minion. Your hero takes damage equal to its Health.
3Death and DecayDeal 3 damage to all enemies.
4Anti-Magic ShellGive your minions +2 / +2 and “Can't be targeted by spells or Hero Powers.”
5Doom PactDestroy all minions. Remove the top card from your deck for each minion destroyed.
6Army of the DeadRemove the top 5 cards of your deck. Summony any minions removed.
7FrostmourneDeathrattle: Summon every minion killed by this [5 / 3] weapon.
