Our Quest Priest deck list guide features the best post-nerf deck list for Season 50 (June 2018). Our Quest Priest guide also contains Mulligan advice, card combos and strategy tips.

Along with every other hero in the game, Priest got a piece of the Quest action last year thanks to the Un'Goro card Awaken the Makers. Once put into play, you're challenged to summon 7 Deathrattle minions onto the board, after which you'll be rewarded with Amara, Warden of Hope. This 5 Mana 8/8 not only has Taunt, but also sets your health pool to 40.

The deck never really took off in the Un'Goro meta, but it looks as though The Witchwood may provide a few tools to help improve this archetypes fortunes. For that reason, we're taking the opportunity to dust this deck guide off a bit and see what's new. You'll find an updated deck list, as well as the usual Mulligan and combo advice.

UPDATE - 25TH MAY 2018

Quest Priest has seen more and more play since the latest nerf patch went live, and so we've overhauled our archetype guide with the latest deck list and insight. We'll keep tracking the deck for developments, and will pop a note in this section if we make any further changes.

Quest Priest deck list and strategy

Here's the Quest Priest deck list that's seeing the most successful ladder play at the moment. As the deck is making a comeback we do expect further revisions in the weeks to come.

Quest Priest Mulligan guide

In general you'll find the following cards to be the best keeps in pretty much every match-up. If the deck takes off we'll provide hero-specific advice on what to look for in your opening hand.

  • Awaken the Makers: This is your core Quest card and one that's always worth getting out in play on Turn 1.
  • Loot Hoarder: A decent enough early-game minion that helps towards your Quest progress, helps you contest the board, and provides you with further fuel when it perishes.
  • Plated Beetle: Like Loot Hoarder, albeit without the bonus card draw. Still, that extra shot of Armour may prove vital in the long run.
  • Crystalline Oracle: Another bit of Quest fuel which can also provide you with an outstanding piece of your opponent's puzzle!
  • Bloodmage Thalnos: Very much in last place, this card is arguably better used when you can make use of the bonus spell damage.

Quest Priest tips, combos and synergies

Here's a quick breakdown of all the combos that power this deck. Take a bit of time to study these before jumping straight into the ladder:

- Every minion you play with Deathrattle after commencing the Quest will count towards its objective.

- All damage dealing spells have their power increased by one point as long as Bloodmage Thalnos is present on the board.

- The choice is random - and you hope to trigger the effect on meatier cards like Rotten Applebaum or Bone Drake - but Twilight's Call will summon minor copies of two Deathrattle minions that died earlier on in the game.

- You need to keep two things in mind with Duskbreaker. First of all, the Battlecry affects minions on both sides of the board. Secondly, you must have another Dragon such as Bone Drake or Primordial Drake in your hand for the damage to go off.

- Primordial Drake is another Battlecry card that affects your own minions as well as your opponent's.

- When Archbishop Benedictus is played, a copy of every card left in your opponent's deck will be shuffled into yours.

- Shadowreaper Anduin destroys all friendly and enemy minions on the board with five or more Attack when played. You'll also gain a new damage-dealing Hero Power which is refreshed every time you play a card.
