I meant it to be used with buff cards and northshire clerics. Having it as a 1 mana 1/1 would be too good, because you can cast power word shield on it and use a northsire cleric, which would make it easier card draw for a low cost.
Ok, but in it's current form it's uplayable. I would argue that in priest this would be an acceptable 1 drop. At a 3 drop no one would ever play this card. It's a 4 mana investment to even get the most basic of buffs by then and doing 4 damage on turn 4 is not hard at all. It's still vulnerable to silence and hard removal as well as just a large chunk of damage. If you are worried about it as a 1 drop than you need to bring up the stat line.
