    Assassinate with an upside

    Galakrond, the Unspeakable's hero power is "Add a random priest minion to your hand."

    So this is Assassinate + Add a random priest minion to your hand. It is not just an upside, it is overpowered i think. Even more with Fate Weaver.

    Except you need to invoke twice to get one additional priest minion. So it isn't as strong as you make it out to be here.

    I don't think you need to invoke twice before you are able to activate galakrond's hero power. All invoke cards activates the hero power regardless galakrond is upgraded or not. At least i saw them in this video;

    Oh wait I completely misunderstood the invoke mechanic. Yeah, my bad. I wasn't even aware that invoke activates Galakrond's hero power.

    Might have to reevaluate some invoke cards then...

    It's likely a good card for priest, but insert standard priest disclaimers here <weak to OTKs, few ways to actually finish games, etc.>

    Heavy card. Replaces SW:D in Galakrond decks.

    Overpowered in Priest, where you have access to SW:D? Not really. This card is totally balanced for 5 mana.

    I really dislike this card, it just seems too good. Destroy a minion, add a random priest minion to your hand, in a class that has historically had trouble with unconditional single target removal. Its not so expensive it feels bad killing something small but dangerous, and killing anything large feels more than fine.

    To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of the women.

    No more problem with 4-attack minions.

    Never netdeck, craft Whizbang instead!

    I don't see this being "bad" as much as "not as good at either of the two things it does vs other cards." I expect I'd rather run other Invokers and other removals rather than just this one expensive spell. However, this is one of those cards I'm fully prepared to be dead wrong about (which tends to happen a lot) since I seem to be in minority on not liking the card

    This one is simple: if galakrond sees play, then this is a possible shadow word: death replacement. Still a little expensive give priest cheap single target removal.

    Im not sold on this one. 

    SW:D is way cheaper, Forbidden Words is more flexible and in wild you have Entomb

    Everyone's comparing it to Assassinate, and that's not a good card either.

    Also 5 Mana clear 1 Minion vs. 5 Mana Boardclear

    Long, drawn-out Control Match-ups with Boardclears en masse and an unbelievable amount of greedy cards?

    Unconditional removal has always been an issue for Priests; there is a slight possibility of seeing this card outside of Galakrond decks, just because they value the ability to eliminate anyone without a restriction. Maybe not, but you never know lel.

    For Wild may be decent if you go with Galakrond, the Unspeakable (of course) but otherwise Entomb still better since you avoid any deathrattle's trigger for you opponent while also adding a resource to your own deck.

    I mean, it is better than Assassinate, but no-one plays Assassinate. However the synergy with Galakrond and especially the invoke dragon could make it playable
