Control Priest is a Priest deck type that relies on the use of Priest's plentiful removal spells to exhaust and out-value other decks. The deck aims to maintain board control and get a serious card advantage through Northshire Cleric and Circle of Healing to outlast the opponent in the late game.
For the Year of the Raven, the deck use the burst direct damage potential provided by Shadowreaper Anduin, Mind Blast and Alexstrasza to close out the game. The deck also runs a small Dragon package with Duskbreaker, Primordial Drake, and Twilight Drake as well as Alexstrasza, herself, being a Dragon. The Control Priest's ability to survive aggressive strategies in the early and stabilize into the late game makes it ideal to climb with against aggro decks.
