    Just as reminder, they are ways to change healing into damage.

    I like that its a 0 mana spell. And that's all I will like about it until I start seeing Auchenai Soulpriest back in standard. But because its a 0 mana spell I'm almost certain team5 would never bring it back, so this is just a glorified radiance that also makes it harder for priest to close games with. In other words, no way to deal damage, no way it sees legit entry into decks.

    Interesting card, and synergises well with Nazmani Bloodweaver for mana cheating and IF Gadgetzan Auctioneer is still in the core set Desperate Prayer might make that mana cheat C'Thun, the Shattered deck viable. (Lets hope not, it feels really bad to play against.) I hope that it doesn't synergise with Auchenai Soulpriest and stuff, because that would be a lame way to re-introduce shadow priest.

    Standard: Depending on if Gadgetzan Auctioneer is in the core set, it will be in mana cheat C'Thun, the Shattered priest. Or otherwise it will be in some different mana cheat priest deck with Nazmani Bloodweaver.

    Wild: If Gadgetzan Auctioneer isn't in core, but in the legacy set. Then that deck will be played by a few people in wild. Majority probably keeps playing Raza Priest though... :P

    This will look really stupid if they decide to not include Auctioneer in the core set.

    Either way, the trend of no context 0-mana Priest spells continues. Maybe in 3 years we'll get a payoff

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Nice simple spell. Priest can usually generate a lot of spells and this one is just a free reroll usually with things like Lyra.

    0 mana spells are good cards by itself, and if the spell is for a class that have Nazmani Bloodweaver... Just really good.

    By The Holy Light!

    Can't really complain about a 0-mana spell. And this is a class that can generate tons of value by casting spells repeatedly.

    Guys, maybe now there will finally be a viable control archetype for Priest!

    Ok, but seriously, this could have some traction as a Shadow Priest card.

    I can see some potential, but then again I don't know how the spell types are going to intermingle

    Hmm, maybe?  At least a card I can play if it comes of Lyra :)

    All generalizations are false.

    Thanks for the healing, I guess. 0 mana spells almost never cause problems.

    This needs spell cycling shenanigans or less its just really weak. I suppose if they entirely flipped their views on direct damage it might work with a heal to damage conversion effect but I doubt that will be happening.

    Has some value in a pinch since this is a 0 mana spell. 

    Also as history suggests, 0 mana spells will always find a home in some deck.

    The best part about this card is the cost.  If you are truly desperate then the 5 hp to your opponent wouldn't matter much, but if you are that desperate is this spell really going to save you?  Maybe if it's just used as a combo piece, or rather a cost reduction tool with the Nazmani minion.

    Quick!  Someone give me something clever to write here.

    Auchenai Soulpriest is the first thing that comes to mind.  Other than that, maybe it could be useful in a control deck to stay in the game a little longer, but it seems like there are better options in that regard.
