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!
Because Blizzard is so good at injecting cool ideas and amazing art into Hearthstone, the Thief Priest archetype leaves itself open to lots of creative interpretation of how Lazul would create her deck to defeat her opponents and fight for the League of E.V.I.L.
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 to further emphasize the Thief Priest archetype. However, if you are interested in using cards that don't necessarily fit the Thief Priest archetype, but add more Lazul flavor into the deck, check out my other deck (at the end of the guide) I created for standard after the March 2020 Priest rework.
Update - Descent of Dragons
More support for Lazul and Thief Priest came with the Descent of Dragons release! Envoy of Lazul is great flavor for this deck; however, I found that it is extremely difficult to actually get value from. I think Mindgames is likely the best candidate to be replaced for this deck since it doesn't have the Troll theme and it is just as likely to whiff as Envoy of Lazul.
Update - March 2020 Priest Rework
Blizzard keeps trying to help Lazul and her thieving trolls out! Not only did we get more support for thief priest in the basic set, but we also got buffs to existing thief priest cards in the classic set. Psychic Conjurer is a wonderful new addition to this archetype; Thoughtsteal's reduced cost now gives us a great option on turn 2 that we never had before as priest; and Shadow Madness's cost decrease now opens up the argument that it would better fit in this deck over Mindgames.
This deck is all about the flavor, so if you aren't into that, skip this one! The main goal of this deck is just to have some fun with cards that never see play in competitive Hearthstone. However, don't let that stop you from trolling your opponents!
Good luck, and have fun!
