Reno-Dragon-Priest-Guide

Don’t let your memes be dreams, Reno Priest is now viable. Thanks to Savjz, who made it to rank 1 Legend and actually stuck around for quite a bit using both his renopriest & renolock. This Reno Dragon Priest makes use of Dragon Synergy and just strong curving cards in general.

Reno Dragon Priest Strategy

This deck shines the most when facing off against aggro decks, due to it’s heavy anti-aggro build: Dirty Rat, Mind Control Tech, Doomsayer,… but still has the ability to generate enough tempo to win versus slower deck archetypes.

You are playing for control of the board & tempo, starting turn 1. Make value trades and use your spells & dragon synergies to efficiently remove the board. Sometimes you might want to hold onto cards that will allow you to get some combos going f.e.: Pint-Size Potion + Cabal Shadow Priest, Brann Bronzebeard + Netherspite Historian / Drakonid Operative.

With Renolock being extremely popular in the current meta, you will often be forced to play aggresively in order to win. You can also often get a “cheese” win when facing off against combo classes by saving your Dirty Rat in order to compeletely ruin their combo.

Reno Dragon Priest Mulligan

Look for your early game: Doomsayer, Dirty Rat, Twilight Whelp, Shadow Word: Pain, Northshire Cleric.

Always keep Reno Jackson, keep Acidic Swamp Ooze versus weapon classes.
