Playing standard. Priest by turn 4 has discovered about 4 cards, and gotten discount on whole hand twice (palm reading). Two palm readings, 2 renew, 2 draconic studies. Plays 6 cards and still has more cards then started with. Meanwhile in this time I've 3 minions and he's at full HP. Drops a nightmare amalgam then a spell to give it extra HP and attack for free (because cost reduction based on # of spells in hand) then somehow duplicates it next turn and there are two like 12/14 or some retarded stat nightmare amalgans. My board is zixor and 2 other random beasts.
I don't feel like looking up the other card names but this is retarded. Only class that ends up with more cards in hand after playing cards. Discover is retarded and once pally and mage get nerfs priest is going to be even more cancer
When Priest is OP, people complain. When Priest is weak, people also complain. Regardless any meta, people always find ways to complain about the class.
People complain about everything always. It’s a hill I die on. Every meta, of every patch, has nothing but complaining. And it’s because people complaint about stupid stuff, like priest discovering cards for example.
Sounds mean, sounds like trolling, but it’s fact. Priest is anything but oppressive, and this is supported by data, not emotion and a bad experience.
I forget which streamer said it, but they hit the nail on the head. When people lose to something, they think that something is overpowered. Doesn’t matter if it was a bad matchup/the opponent highrolled. I lost=something is overtuned is the mentality of the majority.
What do you expect the class to be good at? The class has no access to card draw, and you want the class to stop having extra discover mechanic. A class without any card draw or card generation should be deleted already.
lol I see a disgusting hunter player complaining about priest finally able to heal out of their face spam. I literally become forced to play priest because every other control deck I'm at 5HP by like turn 4-5 against hunter and get destroyed by illidari inquisitor on DH. Thank god for the current patch priest cuz it keeps the face decks in check.
If you're ever salty against priest, just play warlock with jaraxxus and you're winrate is like 70+% against priest. My recent win-loss against warlocks as control priest after lunacy nerf is like 3-17 or something that's equally depressing.

Have you played against or with Demon Hunter lately?. Literally one of the big problems of priest right now is exactly that you have to relay on discover when other classes have a lot of just straighfoward good cards for any situation. Priest spells are really, really, really situationals and care about the board context. So you cant just main deck most of them, you dont want to draw Holy Nova or Shadow Word: Ruin. Even cards loke Apotheosis or SW: Death (cut to 1 or 0 copy in a lot of decks) that are actually included on the main decks feels so bad when you put them on your hand too early and you dont have any use to them until turn 6 or 7. I am not saying that those cards sucks or most Priest spells sucks, our spells are great but in the right situation or they are just dead cards in other good amoun of cases.
Without the access that Priest has to almost any spell of the class well...the decks would be even worse that they are in this very moment.
Priest is literally the worst class in Hearthstone right now. It's the only class that doesn't have over a 50% winrate. Priest isn't broken. They're probably the more fair class of the current meta. Some Priest cards are OP, like Illucia and Setthek, but Priest as a class isn't OP.
