This card would be decent as a paladin card, because of the quest synergy. The paladin legendary could have been a decent card if it would belong to priest.
Instead of 2 decent cards, we have got 2 trash-tier legendaries. Thanks Blizz!
It's definitely not great but I will say, I can see a board of these being a real pain in the ass to deal with. Between Resurrect effects and copy mechanics it wouldn't be too hard. But with no Echo spell for priest, it'll be a pain in the ass to get something cast on all of em, then something cast on all of them again after they die.
I'm not all that amazed by the card (though the art is amazing) but strong cards have been overlooked before because of "boring" or "weak" effects. I have a feeling that it would make it's way into meta decks.
Really cool art and effect, doesn't seem that strong right now but with some kind of support it could be really good. I run a one off of quartz elemental in a combo priest deck I play, I could replace that with this I think.
Imagine if priest get a play dead, though? this instantly becomes pretty good. It's possible they'll make that card too with all the deathrattle stuff.
It is obviously weak to silence, but that's true of a lot of cards that still see play, so not necessarily a deal-breaker. Main problem right now is the lack of buff spells for priest, but there are more cards to be revealed of course... Right now a 4/10, but could easily become a 7/10 with one more decent buff spell for priest.
Synergies based on casting spells on minions rarely work, as they require too much setup for too little payoff. Maybe Combo Priest could make use of this effect by having a sticky minion on board, but it is so vulnerable to transform and Silence effects that I don't feel safe using this card.
