I was rank #89 legendary last season. I ran Druid. This season I’ve been running every single class and flip-flopping around with different sorts of decks. I occasionally play control Priest at my rank, but I’m really enjoying this new variant that I’ve brewed up.
I was really stuck at rank 4 with 1 star and about to rank down. I shot up to rank 3 with 4 stars today with this deck and I could probably keep going if I were to stay up all night.
*This deck is tried and tested. I’ve shared it with a couple legendary-rank friends who I’ve beaten with it in ranked mode.*
There are two variants. One is the tried-and-true variant, and the other is my test variant that I’m not 100% sure on. I’ll list both. The only difference is the test version is running two shadowforms instead of ragnaros & a blademaster. I also want to test a single shadow madness in the place of one of the shadowforms.
*Note: The deck requires a bit of skill. Don’t pump a 4/5 to a 5/6 when playing against priest. Don’t drop a 3/2 on swamp ooze on board against a warrior with no equips in play unless if you have a good play to back it. Don’t mind blast if you have nothing else to do in a turn & the opponent has a very high amount of life.
