[Aggro-combo] UG Priest Jul 31, 2015, 12:42 AM
zombie33 This deck was quite a good surprise.
Create by the french player Kiwifou, it was played by Charlee during the online tournament 20/04/15 (5/14).
It's an aggro-combo deck based on the uncommon Tethmos High Priest. This card allowed many interesting recursions, thanks to auras !

You can visualize the deck here (copy/paste).

The interaction between Pilgrim and Cloudshift is very usefull here. Pilgrim is a valuable toolbox for this deck. One of his favorite target is of course Moldervine who is clearly a key-card of this deck which can target priest and fill the graveyard.
The splash red is here against aggro (Deadly Recluse + Arcane Teachings (bolt-proof)) and several blue decks (Pyroblast who can also target Priest !).
