Single target Lightbomb that leaves a 4/4 body on board instead. Seems situational, but far from un-playable.
Cool, another card for the infamous Tempo Priest that doesn'T exist
I tried having fun once.
It was awful.
This going to see play, no doubt ; a common card, with a great removal potential, that has a dragon tribe tag - and so can be discovered within that pool - great for an effective tempo swing. Stats aren't impressive, but at this point, its best that way so they won't have to nerf it a week after ^^Edit: Figured I should precise that Wild is an existing play mode, and that Dragon Priest is still a viable tempo oriented option.
Struggle with Heroic Galakrond's Awakening? I got your back :
I think people are sleeping on this card.
It doesn't fit res priest, that's for sure.. but it's a dragon and it's normally kills a minion, I wasn't sold on the card but the dragon tag makes it leagues better.. just need a dragon that is a win condition for priest..
definitely fits a highlander priest deck though.
Barely playable. In the past Priest has been given cards that reduce enemy minions' power so this synergizes quite well with them -- not. Really, Priest needed help in Standard. Especially Galakrond Priest. So far all I've seen is borderline crap. Wake up Blizzard!
It'll not really see much play until rotation, and even then I have doubts.
TBH, it's a perfectly fair card, removal effect paired with a solid body for it's mana cost... And that's why it will not be played.
Papa Nurgle wants to share his gifts.
The Priest Dragon synergy cards recently feel a lot more fair than what some of the other classes have gotten, which while better for the game I guess, really doesn’t do much to help out the class. At least you don’t need to be holding a dragon at the moment for this one? Dunno if that’s gonna be enough for it though
Who needs consistency when you could have fun?
I doubt it will see play unless a tech card against some annoying combo/taunt decks. It's just too expensive.

Solid Tempo/Midrange drop.

I fixed your statement for you. Priest needs a lot more Tempo support cards before this will see much play.

My statement was already correct.
This IS a solid Tempo/Midrange drop.
The fact there is no fitting deck for Priest at the moment does not invalidate the truth of my comment.
As someone else already mentioned, this is a single target lightbomb with a minion attached. Useful for cannot be target minions, a situational substitution for the shadow word spells, possible evolve target with lackeys. It just needs a deck that needs such a card.
Unfortunately, common sense isn't as common as it should be.
That card is like Vilespine Slayer, a good tempo card that kills a minion and leaves a solid body on the board.
But priest doesn't have a viable tempo deck right now, maybe next year that card will shine.
By The Holy Light!
If this were a tempo card, that might matter. This is a control card.
One of the better cards to get randomly off of Galakrond's invoke, maybe a dragon galakrond priest could work?
Gosh dang it, cards bad.
Absolutely underwhelming if you'd ask me. Priest can already remove Minions for less and way more effective. And even though you get a „free" 4-4, guess what? You're still playing Priest! A Class that rarely cares about Tempo. And if they do, they'd rather play cheap Minions with High Priest Amet than a 6 Mana Card.
It's a worse Vilespine Slayer for a Class that doesn't have much support for a Tempo oriented Playstyle.

Any card that doesn't fit res priest is a plus. Hope this helps creates other priest archetypes.
What are you all on about calling this a tempo card? First guy in the thread said it's a tempo card so now everyone is judging it like it's a bad tempo rogue card. Think for yourself please. This is more of a control card. It's closer to Omega Devastator than Vilespine Slayer. You hold it until turn 6....then you keep holding it until it's the right moment to use it, which will often be when there's an 8/8 you need to remove.
