    Decent enough i tink because this can give you answers for specific situations. Kinda like Tracking but i guess slightly better.

    So it's a reprint of Cleric of Scales without the dragon requirement. Seems pretty good, as it helps tutor a spell that you need AND it is now a lot more flexible now that you don't need a dragon to get this effect.

    In standard this will surely see play in control priest decks, and in C'Thun, the Shattered priest decks to tutor the C'thun pieces.

    In wild it won't see play, because Shadow Visions is better in almost every way, shape and form. 

     

    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 good as draw for Priest (or cycle rather).

     

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Actually it could with Highlander/Reno decks. This effect is one you would want multiple of in a deck. So having both Visions and Thrive in the deck to make sure you can pull your removals when needed actually makes this a strong inclusion in a Reno deck despite being effective weaker.

    Sometimes reprinting a card, even a weaker version, can still find a use.

    If you need to empty your deck (Chef Nomi, Mecha'thun) that card is better than Shadow Visions. But yes, SV is better on 99% of cases.

    That's true. Completely forgot about reno decks for a second, really weird that i forgot about Raza Priest. Yeah it certainly can see play. Nice catch!

    Its a cycle for 2, which means its technically outclassed by Loot Hoarders and its ilk. But being a spell, and having synergies with Nazmani Bloodweaver and Palm Reading, and the fact that this isn't a minion (which means it wont stuff your Raise Dead), this card is deceptively powerful. A great support card for miracle priest, or in fact any priest that cycles their spells alot.

    Technically you can tutor mankrik's wife out on turn 4 with this, but Im pretty sure that's not the true intention of this card.

    This card can be seen as targeted draw, just like Redscale Dragontamer. It's a good and fair card that will probably see play in a variety of priest decks.

    Lets not forget the Shadow spell school and the possible synergies there will be

    This draws the spell from your deck rather than generating another copy of it, yeah?

    Better call Thrall!

    Yes.

    Tools like this one are extremely valuable in combo decks, but they are also good for just finding answers.

    If you want to draw your deck faster because of a combo Shadow Visions is not better, but I see your point.

    Tutoring is such a powerful ability, and it fits in perfectly for Priest to continue to have it.
