    Would be great except for the fact that it's a godawful draw as seen on stream....and they didn't give Priest any card draw whatsoever, meaning that you can'T afford to run dead draws.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    It's good early game, but that's the weak point of the Dormant card - if they are not OP OP, they suck if you draw them late. I still have faith that they will add a mechanic to pop them out immediately :)...

    Great card. Play this turn 1, Turn 2 heal or other card, This wakes up right when you need it and the opponent probably starts to get a board. Just overall a good card that might look bad.

    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.

    Pretty low impact, the most thing I love about this card is that you just have to pay 1 mana. Only downside is which deck you will add this card in it? Priest has received a big overhaul too, so I will wait and see how priest works before judging this minion.

    Of course, most dormant minions are bad too anyways, I still have hope in them!

    don't forget they're rotating out priest's main source of card draw Northshire Cleric

    Living like that.

    Priest will be struggling with card draws and cycle, that's (almost) guaranteed

    I'd play Imprisoned Vilefiend over this card any day. Its a 2/5 taunt. The 2 damage is particularly problematic since most good minions have at least 3 health.

    If this card is played on turn 1 it's good, but later in the game this is just a horrible top deck.

    One of the better imprisoned minons when drawn on curve, but absolutely awful when topdecked. Since they removed all card draw from priest, they will need cards that can be good at any point in the game.

    Forgot about this one while reviewing the other dormant cards, this is probably one of the best ones.. a 2/5 taunt for 1 is amazing and a great buff target..

    The question is how priest will look like DH seems too insane..

    Strong card in the first 2 turn of the game, but in late game is almost useless

    I mean, if you have nothing else to do turn 1, this rocks.

    Super good for your turn-1 play - where you might otherwise have nothing to do - but a terrible draw later on as seen in the stream. Probably one of the better Imprisoned minions, though, and that's saying something (...'cause most are trash).

    probably one of my most fav dormant card. cheap and decent stat for a turn 1 play. by the time it becomes active you can get it buffed up with spells or dragonmaw overseer.

    Good 1-drop, terrible topdeck. One of the best imprisoned demons, still won't see play in constructed.

    You could divine spirit + inner fire it, but as with other dormant cards, your opponent can prepare well in advance. Putting up a 2/5 taunt for 1 mana with a 2 turn delay is sacrificing what is usually a dead turn for priests. However, topdecking this against aggro might just kill you. I think it will probably underwhelm more often than not.

    This post is discussing the wild format.

    Great card for a Turn 1 play

    Terrible card for anything else

    Won't see play because 95% of the time, this will be a dead card that you will be angry you drew and will end up losing you the game.

    early turn play this, and buff it when it awakens. Simple enough, hope it works
