maybe in Highlander Priest? idk. I hope blizz gives Priest some great cards, so people wont play Ressurect Priest only. Because its only competitive option, well Highlander too, but not many ppl want to play it.
If that is true, it does limit the bad 2 cost minions. Which now that I think about it, makes sense with other class based discover cards.
I am not sure if this is better or worse then. I guess on average, it's a decent card in some decks, but I don't think there is a home for it right now.
I do think the RNG is still too far ranging to give you the confidence to throw this in your deck on purpose. I do think that getting this off of the Lackey that discovers a spell is a great choice many times.
Its 2 cards in one. A random 2 drop combined with the Lackey that gives +2 Health (but in this case +3) in one card. Is that good enough to put in your deck on purpose?
Maybe in a Highlander style deck where you need to generate more value, but no existing Priest decks have room to play this card.
Resurrect doesn't want this because it could dilute their resurrect pool. Inner Fire Combo has better cards and is a highly tuned deck already.
Dragon/Invoke Priest is also too restrictive as it is.
Now if they didn't nerf Discover and it still gave a bonus to Priest minions, I think this card would be very very playable. Perhaps even really good.
For example, getting Lightwell is pretty darned good against aggro.
5 Health is good for a 3 drop, but with the power creep lately and the fact that alot of minions have rush, the minion you find is probably far worse than playing a 3 drop with 5 Health already. Why throw this card into your deck unless you need spell synergy?
3 drops that I would rather play are Injured Blademaster and Circle of Healing.
Bronze Gatekeeper and it has magnetize and taunt so this can get attached to my 2 drop Mech deathrattle if my opponent ignores it.
Hell I could play a Silence Priest and Arcane Watcher instead for a 5/6.
How about Ornery Tortoise and then heal myself with Quest Priest because my opponent hasnt attacked me yet.
