    Arcane Intellect for priest that occasionally creates good memes.

    That's it really. It does what it needs to do - Draw two minions. Maybe that's good enough in the grand scheme of things. The secondary effect will only occasionally be a factor, but I doubt it ever going to do much.

    Draw in Priest is good. Question is if this is a good idea depending on your deck. Wouldn't want to make one of your lategame bombs into a miniature.

    Also, you play this with Stonetusk Boar and The Darkness in Wild

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    This is a interesting card. Priest is bad at drawing cards, so they might just run it because it draws 2 cards.

    In standard this might be good in a Bless priest deck.

    In wild you could play this with Stonetusk Boar and The Darkness into Divine Spirit + Inner Fire for a 40 dmg OTK. I can see Markmckz do this already.

    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.

    It is a combo enabler, which almost always has the potential to be insane.

    Decent Draw for priest - but not sure that this will fit in anything other than meme or fun decks ...

    So do we just ignore the stat switch and treat this as Arcane Intellect for Priest? Does Priest need an Arcane Intellect?

    The shenanigans that will happen in wild... best not to dwell on them, might give you nightmares.

    As for standard, I don't see any minions really that would want their stats swapped, but I'm sure someone will figure out a broken combo

    Ok. Seems really cool for any Priest deck that specifically wants to draw minions, and great for weird combo decks (Silence Priest?!?!) that want to swap stats between one big thing and one small thing. There's gonna be some weird deck on the fringes of the meta (or perhaps it WILL BE THE META?) that runs this card as a key part of its win condition.

    I have spoken.

    I think in most case it won't be that much of a great deal, except for the draw 2, which is nice. There will be some great greedy play too, but mostly just drawing minions ;)

    Would you rather fight one Whale-sized Goldfish, or 100 Goldfish-sized Whales?

    Why yes I would love to make a 0 mana 8/8, in my Naga Miracle Priest, thank you.

    It's a nice card draw, and the effect is interesting. Curious to see what comes of it!

    Either they increase this cost or only health will be switched.

    Did not expect this to be the card I dreaded seeing before the end of week one, but here we are.

    I can tell you: he added 1+1. That seems to be more than the QA is capable of.
