Ive slagged plenty of cards like this as the reveal went on, and this card is no different.
But it does have one good thing going for it. With the amount of undead support cards being printed there may yet be a genuine undead aggro priest so consistency would only rarely be an issue. The real problem here is to ask whether an aggro deck even need something like this, basically a 5 mana Flamestrike that'll hit face.
The jury is out on this one for me. Because whenever this card works it'll likely win you the game, but on the other hand there's a good chance this card just does nothing more than 4 damage to face for 5 mana. Aside from being a dead card if drawn early, not a nice thing to happen when youre playing aggro.
So at best this is 5 mana 1 sided 4 damage AOE. Poor Chaos Nova crying in the corner. I'm assuming, the way it's worded, this AOE spell will deal 2 damage to all enemies twice, helping to remove divine shields, reborn minions and deathrattle triggers. While this does sound appealing, this spell will only be played in an undead deck coz 5 mana 2 damage AOE is awful.
Honestly would run Clean the Scene over this (if not specifically playing shadow priest).
TREMBLE before.... the most legendary dragon that ever existed!
This is actually pretty strong for a boardclear. 4-damage for just 5-mana that also goes face? That could really push MIdrange Shadow Priest, just because it gives you the ability to actually recover the board.
We've already seen Abyssal Wave perform well in Curse-IMplock despite that deck trying to win the board and this is just straight up better at face value.
I tried having fun once.
It was awful.
I guess this might be a reason to play undead priest. For its mana cost, it is quite effective - if it trigger twiceWe like to call it FUNdeath here!
Struggle with Heroic Galakrond's Awakening? I got your back :
This is a 5 mana double Consecration if you manage to fulfill the likely easy condition. Given that would cost 8 mana, I'm going to assume this is good.
5 mana double Consecration? This will 100% see play. And undead minions seem good for priests, so i think the condition will be easy to trigger.
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.
Spirit Guide tutors this and activates it's condition. This is going in decks.
Hey, you heard about that Mario guy?
Seems like decent removal. Priest is going to get even more annoying now.
