My echoes are eternal.

Deathrattle Priest, also known as Quest Priest is a Priest deck type. It is a variant of Control Priest that relies Deathrattle minions and deathrattle synergies. The deck features many high value Deathrattle minions, along with tech choices in the form of healing or card draw to help survive into the late game. In the late game, Deathrattle Priest intends to play either Hakkar, the Soulflayer, to outlast the opponent or play Princess Talanji after shuffling minions with Spirit of the Dead to instantly gain an overwhelming board.

Deathrattle Priest runs the Journey to Un'Goro Priest Quest, Awaken the Makers, it also runs cards that can generate extra copies of the quest reward, Amara, Warden of Hope, such as Zola the Gorgon and Seance.

In wild, this deck gains a lot more power due to the Old God, N'Zoth, the Corruptor resurrecting all the deathrattle minions at once, creating big deathrattle minions such as Obsidian Statue.
