    That seems pretty insane. the only downside I could see is that you can't always conserve your charges when trying to actually curve out. I guess you keep the weapon in hand until you actually need it.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Can work as a board stabilizer at mid game. More stuff for shadow priest.

    As Shadow Priest, you're going to be casting Shadow spells anyways. Why not throw in a 2 mana consecration in there too?

    I'm not sure how this will work out. It could be helpful for to  clear out aggro boards while you are focusing on your main game plan. I don't see Priest wanting this on a consistent basis though.

    Unfortunately, common sense isn't as common as it should be.

    Yeah it's only 3 damage by itself, but it's UNTARGTED and hits ALL enemies.  This is a really solid PRiest "weapon"

    Could be real interesting. Helping hold off aggression while pinging the opponent down.

    I don't really know how to evaluate this. You're never playing this on curve, and certainly no aggro deck would need this because a minion on curve is better and priest still cant draw decently enough for this to be consistently good.

    Does control priest need this? Maybe not. Most shadow spells aren't cheap except for Raise Dead, and there's so many good shadow spells that you can never get full value of this card  by playing it early in anticipation of destroying a board.

    At first I though this was bad, but Kibler really made it shine in yesterday's livestream. You generally have to try to save it for when you need the AoE burst.

    More fuel for an OTK. Priest is looking scary!

    I can't really complain about a bonus AoE from casting a Shadow spell. Only problem is you might have this equipped, and the opponent might not have that many minions.

    I think it`s decent - very nice against aggro.

    Great against those aggro decks. I am feeling a pattern here. This will really help with th ecurrent aggro domination.

    This can really be busted in a world where Palm Reading exists.

    Condemn (Rank 1) is almost always better

    Shadow Priest: deal damage, fool!

    Auto include in the new Shadow Priest archetype. I will definitely take this weapon for a spin on launch day.

    Interesting, though really needs some spammable Shadow spells, though turning Void Shard into a Swipe might be good enough.
