Priest is getting a good mana cheaters that set, maybe can take profit of Questing Explorer?
By the way, it's a really good card.
PS. If you reduce the mana of a corruptable card (from 4 to 3) that card will be corrupted if you play a 4 mana card? Or needs to play a card with cost higher than original cost?
By The Holy Light!
It's not great, but I think that this cements that priests will no longer have any problems finding mana for their combos any more. Something to note is that the discount hits anything in hand, so maybe this is not so good for combo decks. I think that most decks that want this effect would rather run Radiant Elemental.
This post is discussing the wild format.

I haven't seen any confirmations, but I would imagine the original cost the be the one to matter. Might be wrong though.
It's a 3 mana 2/5 with a good effect, so it has a chance somewhere, particularly if Miracle Priest is ever a thing which it most likely won't be here, but it might in the future with the right support. I don't see it working too great right now, but this is definitely a card to watch out for in future sets.

Damn that's going to be some weird spaghetti code there x_x
Regardless, this card will see play in different archetypes, coz mana cheating is how you play HS these days... it seems
TREMBLE before.... the most legendary dragon that ever existed!
Priest get good card, me angry >:(
This ain't no place for a hero
Damn priest has so many discounts now. can be exploited in wild I suppose. Now I see why they rotated all the direct damage from priest.

Maybe they will push some spell heavy priest with some strong combo, like miracle build
Certainly helps the Discount Spell Priest that is being pushed, but there still doesn't seem to enough 'oomph' to really get the archetype there. I think this could make a good inclusion in the Tempo Buff Priest that saw some experimentation in Scholomance, but I still think there will be better tempo decks.
It's not quite as efficient in chaining multiple spells as Radiant Elemental, but it is better at cheating out bigger cards. I imagine it will see play, but I don't think it will be anything terribly spectacular.
"Carrion, my wayward grub"
Hmm interesting card. Kinda similar to Radiant Elemental but worse. Radiant Elemental is still a gross card. From what i can tell so far, it seems like were getting mana cheat priest as an archetype. Which is probably very unfun to play against, and that's a perfect description of a priests play-style. Alright i'll stop with the banter...
Nazmani Bloodweaver has one thing over Radiant Elemental though: It's better with expensive cards like Idol of Y'Shaarj. But now we still gotta see what other kind of big pay-off card this archetype will get.. because outside of Idol of Y'Shaarj, what else fits in this architype? What do you even summon a 10/10 copy off?
The only combo i really see is 2x Nazmani Bloodweaver + Sethekk Veilweaver and pretend like your doing a 2x Radiant Elemental + Lyra the Sunshard combo... But in this new combo's case, you are trying to discount big spells instead of chaining small spells into Mind Blasts...
Standard: Pretty sure this goes in some kind of value/control Galakrond shaman. Maybe this new mana cheat priest deck, but i'm too unsure about this archetype so far...
Wild: Pretty much wont see play i'm guessing. Radiant Elemental is a gross card this is in most cases better than Nazmani Bloodweaver.
It's a random card in hand, so you can't really count on it for specific combos unless you are able to pop off hard the turn you play it.
It's still really good, though, even if it just lets you get big stuff out early or chain out one more card in a pinch.

It's worthwhile to note that whichever way the code works, this will benefit Corrupt cards (assuming it's consistent). If only the original mana cost matters, you can discount more expensive cards and play them to Corrupt sooner. If the discounted cost matters, then you can Corrupt by playing cheaper cards and still get those bombs out sooner.
Maybe there's a spell-heavy tempo Corrupt Priest build out there.
This is a seriously good card. The idea that you can reduce the cost of cards in your hand with multiple cards means that some of those rather costly cards could be more viable earlier or at the least, played with other cards in a turn as well. Control is coming back!!
I has high health, aside from that I don't think this is a good card or that it will se play.Most of the time you play only 1 spell besides a minion, and paying 3 for a 2/5 and reducing 1 cost 1 random card feels kinda weak.
Quote From PopeNeiaPriest get good card, me angry >:(
To be fair, it is too random to be that consistent - still somewhat useful - but I wouldn't go as far as goo
Struggle with Heroic Galakrond's Awakening? I got your back :
Pretty good for Raza Priest and Pen Flinger abuse lists. Pretty good for heavier combo lists that need the delay or combo cost reduction.
So it seems spell priest is going to be something to try out this set.
Seems good on paper, doens't fit resurrect priest luckily but a sort of midrange priest maybe? (for the 1000 time it's tried?)
