Have the idea, now need the deck list

    So, I had the very simple idea for a giant spell priest:

    It revolves around the following infinite card draw machine:

    1) You play Test Subject

    2) Than you drop Radiant Elemental

    3) Now you are ready to pull endless amount of cards and discount spell giants by applying  on the Test Subjectthe following:

    Embalming Ritual => Power Word: Shield => Topsy Turvy.

    I tried different variations of deck lists, but could not find one that works. Any suggestions?

    The drawing combo:

    Test Subject Card Image

    Radiant Elemental Card Image

    Embalming Ritual Card Image

    Power Word: Shield

    Topsy Turvy

    The Cards You want to Discount:

    Arcane Giant Card Image

    Grave Horror Card Image

    Why bother with test subject? You can easily accomplish this with Sethekk Veilweaver or Nazmani Bloodweaver, or even both. Playing 12 spells by turn 3-4 isn't exactly all that hard for priest, especially after a Palm Reading discount, so you dont necessarily need the Radiant Elemental either.

    I dont have list for you, but you can start by looking out the old rally priest from the previous meta before rotation. Add in some good spells like Embalming Ritual and it should be good enough.

    If you really want Test Subject shenanigans, run Dragon Soul instead. You then don't need to run PW: Shield nor even Radiant Elemental. Just run Seance - it will let you actually have some infinite value that Ritual does not provide even though you will get more 5/5 Dragons initially with Ritual (three 5/5 Dragons each turn is still plenty). Instead of PW:Shield, run Regenerate to actually get 3 spells for Dragon Soul to proc.

    Nazamani lists are too slow. With the Test Subject you can start endlessly drawing as early as turn 2 (with a coin) or 3 (without a coin).

    Thank you! I will give it a try.
