With Desperate Prayer it can be 10 AOE, but even outside of that pretty solid

Cool art, mediocre effect which needs help from support heal cards.
"If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck... but not always though."
Very strong effect! Aside from that, the card is soooo pretty. Probably the best looking card in this whole set.
Desperate Xy controlling the board at 4-mana!
Great looking card. At least when priests wreck me with it, it'll look good.

It is a shame Divine Hymn isn't in Core2021.
Desperate Prayer seems a lot better now.
Dang that's a strong card. Lots of cheap ways to get a decent bit of AOE, and several slightly more expensive ways to get a large AOE.

Incredible with every single priest card revealed. Think this archetype will be nuts

this with lots of cheap healing spells can be a huge comeback, loveit
Very good card. Amazing board clear. In wild it's going to be oppressive with greater healing potion
Its going to be honestly one of priest best card for some time. With a simply card like flash heal this card does 5 damage to all ENEMY minions. So if you have board, all it takes is 2 cards and 5 mana to immediately swing.
It does help that most of the removals from priest are gone, so this one stands unopposed, in standard anyway.
... ! That can be very terrifying to play against ; a huge healing would result in your enemie's board washed : ouch ..!*5 Stars for sure
*On average, my predictions are dead wrong :P
Struggle with Heroic Galakrond's Awakening? I got your back :
Oof! More Priest board clear, though at least this is more situational.
Way too much set up for a single use aoe
I love this! Not only is it beautiful and strong, it makes you reevaluate every Priest card in the set - other folks here are already talking about Desperate Prayer. That's good card design! Flash Heal and Renew also exist, of course, as well as Crimson Clergy.
I'd also like to try out a control version of this deck, rather than a tempo one. Have Raise Dead, select powerful minions like Xyrella and Sethekk Veilweaver, and a healthy amount of the spell synergy package that we received in Scholomance and Outland. That would be fun, certainly, perhaps even powerful.
this is a good card with good synergy!
Priest is always looking for board clears and they have access to plenty of efficient healing effects. I don't know why any Control Priests wouldn't want to run Xyrella. Heck, just a Renew plus HP and you have a Flamestrike plus a 4/4 and five healing for seven mana. Xyrella is super efficient and will be a staple in Priest I am certain.
For glory, honor, and gold!
The worst case scenario here is that you use your hero power to heal for 2, then drop Xyrella for a 2-damage AOE. That's pretty weak, but it's probably comparable to Shattered Rumbler, which was playable.
But realistically, this is much better. Typically you'll play this alongside Desperate Prayer or Renew or even Flash Heal to get a sizable AOE effect alongside the 4/4 body. Or you pair this with Holy Nova or Lightshower Elemental for a massive late game AOE. The fact that this can be effective at multiple points of the game makes Xyrella a very compelling card.
