    Kind of good because of the statline, but historically healing your own minions for buffs has never been a viable strategy. It could become one given dedicated support but at the moment the available healing spells are just not there yet.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Seems to be a bit too slow, since you need this + other minions + damage on your minions + a heal, which are a lot of conditionals.

    Effects like these havent been that good, but at least Luminous Geode is a cheap minion. Will probably see play in some kind of Inner Fire, i mean Bless Priest deck.

    Edit: its +2 attack not health. Apparantly i can't read. This card is bad. Aggresive priest decks use shadowform so its hard to heal Minions.

    RNG is only fun as long as there is a 50/50 chance of getting something really good or trash level of bad. If RNG always results in something good, then it's not fun.

    Mana Geode's beother. Probably more of an Arena card than anything.

    Had pyromancer and circle of healing still be in standard this card is just nuts.

    But right now? Not so much. Its suffers from the same problems as with Lightsteed. Just impractical to assume it'll work consistently every game.

    Agreed. We already have Crimson Clergy and it doesn't see play so I doubt this will either.

    Kind of awkward when you consider this is an aggro card that synergises with healing and virtually all healing in Priest is Holy spells, while Priest's only aggro deck excludes those exact healing spells.

    Rating cards on coolness factor rather than predicting power because I like screwing up rating averages (and because I suck at predicting real power levels, but we'll ignore that LUL)

    This is good when combined with Gift of the Naaru. You'd want a dedicated combo/miracle priest deck though but there's not much support for that atm. I'm sure this card will be good in wild, where there's more restore health type cards

    This looks pretty good with Gift of the Naaru. At least it won't buff the other side's minion, even though the other card might heal them.

    Very strong with Gift of the Naaru. Ultimately this feels like something you don't really want to play on curve. Rather, you'd probably want to control the board in the early/midgame, then drop Luminous Geode + Gift of the Naaru for a big burst akin to Savage Roar.

    Just a few more payoff cards and Elemental Priest can be a viable deck!

    Lightsteed synergy.  Now there just needs to be a way for Priest to drop a LOT of minions and draw up your hand quickly to make good on it

    Definitely has priest flavour to it and actually a nice follow-up to 1 mana 1/4 that would ideally traded with enemy's 1 drop.

    I think they are pushing a lot a priest with board control options

    This looks like a great board buff if you can play it with Gift of the Naaru. Even without the AOE buff effects, it can still help ramp up a single target.

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

    This could be really scary, especially in concert with cheap AoE heals. Does Aggro Token Priest have a chance? Probably not, but you can at least try the deck out.

    I have spoken.

    Really missing Circle of Healing now... at least it has Gift of the Naaru to support it instead.
