Considering that netherpsite historian and draknoid operative are rotating, I don’t think dragon priest will survive the rotation. Don’t think any other deck will run dragons either. So this card will probably see no play.
4 mana 5/4 with rush. The stats are not ideal for trading, but I think it is strong enough in Dragon decks (you can dicate the first trade). Without trigger (worst case), 4/4 is still not losing the game. Sometimes Arcane Tyrant is played for 5. So I think it is a playable card if a Dragon deck will be viable.
Cross-tribe synergy? That's a bit uncommon and interesting to see. Not sure if Beast / Dragon synergy will ever be a thing, but not too bad of a card for Arena.
Can't imagine it being played in Constructed, unless they will push for more Dragon support to bring it up in certain classes (which they won't because it has nothing to do with the theme of the expansion).
Hmm, for now many of the rush cards seem to be arena exclusive ones (with the exception of the hunter legendary and probably that dog). Amm, unless we see a card, which synergises with the rush mechanic like crazy, kinda sad to see that the new one, which the devs are hardly pushing, looks very underwhelming and out of place.
Meh, I just imagined, that the player somehow had dragon synergies, how this would be a 4 mana 5/4, which clears a minion and pushes for tempo. You are probably right, but I just didn't see another logical explanation behind this.
Dragon decks have always at the very least been hovering at fringe, if not viable. Either way they're always fun. I am excited to see a nice control card coming out for everyone to test out. I am surprised by all the negativity I am seeing on here today between this and WANTED!.
