    I’ve been using a standard Dragon Priest deck.

    Thoughts on what cards to take out? I’m thinking a Cabal Priest and SW:P. Or.. maybe Cabal Priest and a Twilight Drake. Thoughts? I’m thinking Twilight Drake because a lot of the time I’m not putting down at turn 4 because I’m either choosing Guardian Drake or healing up which makes it a 6 turn play with the heal.

      Probably Cabal. I think Book Wyrm is a more consistent version of Cabal. The difference between 2 and 3 attack is huge and often times Cabal steals a minion that’s not that good.

    I like this guy. It doesn’t change a lot in the meta. 6 Crystal bust do something that impac the game in a relevant way, this guy have a good body, and a good effect, but sylvanas is better in both way . i don’t know if it is possible in priest add this dragon, remove swp and reshape the curve for balance, i will give it a shot.

    3/6 body is worth around 4, and 3- att removal is worth 2 and only available to priest, and together they cost 2 cards. And this one is available to anyone and worth only 1 card and same mana, which is pretty good to me. Will be adding at least one of these into my dragon deck for sure.

    The question is, how frequently do you play Shadow Word Pain from turn 6 onwards? The effect might be too late to be relevant, but if there’s still stuff to kill running around, this cards seems statted and costed appropriately.

      the answer is as frequently as you play kodo for a RANDOM 2-att or less minion kill… now you can choose what to destroy (easy kill a doomsayer if your opp has many low att minions -paladin’s hero power etc) and you can destroy more minions than kodo (water elementals, or a 3/5 councilman or buffed minions from argus, wolf etc)… maybe i m wrong, but i think it s better than kodo (while it s not so hard to have a dragon in your hand if you are playing dragon deck)…

    Rend Blackhand destroys legendaries, and no one plays him. Why would anyone play this? If it killed 4 attack or less, it would definitely see play. It just feels too situational.

      Rend’s main problem is that his stat line is terrible at 8/4. 3/6 is much better for the cost. In addition, it turns out that only being able to kill legends is actually kind of restrictive.

      i think you are wrong.. i can compare this with kodo.. for one more mana you have only +1 hp but you can kill 3att or less minion (so you can destroy (more than kodo) water elemental, crazed worshiper, some buffed cards that have 3 att -after argus or after dire wolf- , or even enemy’s book wyrm, etc).. additional you can Choose what to destroy! (ok, you need to have a dragon in your hand, but in dragon decks it s not so difficult).. but we ll see if it will be playable or not..

      In Dragon priest, for example, is better than Cabal!!!!!

        Lol, it’s not better than Cabal, but it is a good card.

    Maybe it will be a good addition to revive priest (what a pun), but with 6 mana maybe it won’t.
