Deck Inspiration

Since Thief Priest is such an intriguing idea with such a laughable execution, I wanted to make a Thief Priest deck with some flavor. For fun! (*cough* I opened a golden Griftah and didn't want to disenchant it... *cough*)

As we all know, Priest has access to many thief cards (e.g. Mind Vision, Thoughtsteal, etc.). In fact, it appears Blizzard really wants this idea to be an actual competitive archetype for Priest in Hearthstone (hence, the basic/classic cards revolving around it). Unfortunately, most of these cards are abysmal. On the other hand, they've got some awesome flavor!

Madame Lazul and Princess Talanji are both trolls that mesh with the Thief Priest archetype and are Priest cards (and a Priest hero!), so I wanted to take the other trolls, thieves, and Lazul themed cards and turn them into a Thief Priest deck.

Drakkari Trickster and Griftah are both trolls from Rastakhan's Rumble that fit the flavor of Thief Priest, so they were my next choices after Madame Lazul and Princess Talanji. The rest of the deck consists of thief cards.

Against aggro, you basically lose. However, against control/combo, you can sometimes out value them for the win (I had a lot of success against Dragon Priests). This deck isn't for those looking to win, but rather for those who want to use cards like Madame Lazul, Princess Talanji, Drakkari Trickster, and Griftah that so rarely actually get used.

 

Good luck, and have fun! This deck is all about the flavor, so if you aren't into that, skip this one!

      Thanks! Since this deck is meant to be a fun deck, substituting anything that "feels" right is probably fine!

      If you want to keep the Thief Priest feeling of Griftah, then Archbishop Benedictus could be a really solid replacement for Griftah. If you want some cheaper options, then Convert or Entomb still keep the "thieving" flavor. Potion of Madness, Shadow Madness, Cabal Shadow Priest, and Mind Control are other options that are more board based for your thieving.

      Perhaps you want to be a little more...aggressive...with your thieving; then adding a Dirty Rat, Deathlord, Unseen Saboteur, or Hecklebot could dig into your opponent's pockets. Maybe you want to be a true thief, like Mischief Maker, and take your opponent's actual card! Or maybe you want to gamble it all on your opponent's hand with Azalina Soulthief.

      If, instead, you are interested in the "troll-ing" aspect of this deck, Mojomaster Zihi works as a control card that "steals" your opponent's mana crystals. Additionally, Da Undatakah is another troll that can copy our thieving deathrattles (from Crystalline Oracle and Shifting Shade) for even more card stealing.

      At the end of the day, this deck is about whatever feels right to you. So, if anything sticks out as an obvious substitute, then go for it!
