If we see many powerful 1-cost minions and if the priest spell Surrender to Madness creates a whole new archtype, then this card will be staple there. However I don't see why people are freaking out over this card. It just a card draw on turn 7. And you draw weak and most likely non-impactful cards.
[edit 2] I didn't see the Spirit card. WoW, with the spirit card Bwosamdi has the potential to create combo priest decks. Interesting.
This could be good with velen and malygos and bownsamdi, you drop this and kill velen and maly from your spellstone, play bwonsamdi, drop you 1 mana velen and maly and gg, this deck is good on its own without Spirit and bwonsamdi, and sees lots of play currently
I'm wondering if this card requires too much setup for it to be good or not. The new Spirit of the Dead card is a great start and if priests find more ways to shuffle powerful 1 mana minions into their deck, I can easily see this being a Tier 2 deck in the upcoming meta.
Will be interesting to see what other cards are added to Priest. At the moment it seems like this would only be playable alongside Spirit of the Dead and even then only if you got decent value from that. It seems like you could easily get some serious shennanigans going with them though, especially once you add in Boomsday's cloning cards.
What I like about this card is that I'm not sure it needs anything else besides Spirit of the Dead and Northshire Cleric to be good.
Four 1-mana minions should probably be enough for this to be a 7-mana draw 2. If you've copied anything with Spirit of the Dead, that becomes even more reasonable.
Seems really good especially with its paired spirit card. Hoping this is indicative of a strong power level for the other cards/classes and lots of new strong decks for the expansion. Last expansion was lacking in power, with pretty much just dr boom 2 being a great new deck introducing card.
This is a strong card and finally one that gives a sense to previously released or revealed cards. It gives sense to Gallery, Reckless Experimenter, Madness, Spirit, Gargoyle, Piper, Banker... and old bois like Velen, Maly... The strength of the card lays in its versatility. It'll be interesting to decksperiment.
