    Hey guys does anyone know if the card needs to be in your hand to be upgraded? Or is it like Arcane Golum that is affected anywhere in your deck or hand as long as spells have been cast?

    In Wild – where the only minion in the deck is Angry Rag. Everything else is a spell to control/kill things, Shadow Essence or ways resurrect Rag.

    … concede if opponent has Polymorph or Hex though 🙂

    Finally. I really like these cards. You can build a deck around it. It can work as a new type of quests. Just more secret as the opponent doesn´t know, what you are up to. Not like actual quests, as you have to play them and the opponent can quite easily guess, what cards and gameplay he will be facing.
    Just imagine….mulligan this in your hand, play removals, AoEs, healings. Get Velen out. Play Spellstone turn 9 with Mindblast for 80 dmg!!!
    I know that 4 spells are a quite big amount, but it can be done. 4xShadow Words, 2xHoly Smite, 2xShadow Vision,2xSpirit Lash,2xDragonfire Potion, 2x Greater Healing Potion, Silence, Mass Silence, Shadow Essence to get Velen earlier. And so on (plus Anduin for Big minions AoE).

    Just thoughts.

    PS: Not high tier deck for sure. Not even consistent, but original at least 🙂
    PSS: Currently run “Velen only” deck in Wild and the OTK turn is always surprising for the opponent.
    PSSS: Polymorph Velen = Concede!!!

      It resurrects different minions, so only 1 Velen

    1 word: Mini n’zoth.
    Big priest most likely cant use this too well because they need all the early game removal possible.

    loothoarder, thalnos, crystalline oracle and carnivorous cube + 4 quest progress. Amazing.

    *complains that it’s too expensive, hard to upgrade, and the upgrade only increases it by 1 minion*
    *Remembers Big Priest is a tier 1-2 deck that would happlily slot this in*

    “Seems pretty good.”

    The value from picking shadow visions out from shadow visions intensifies!

    Assuming you have a deck built around this the base form is pretty strong. The upgrade cost is steep but a deck built around this would be spell heavy anyway.
    Other decks… maybe quest priest? The resurect will trigger the quest right? There aren’t a ton of great deathrattles but with this you only need to play the best ones and some spells to survive.

    I think the rarity of the card it’s epic (in the last video it was displayed like that at least)

    Still a good card i guess, but the value in comparison to the others is just not there. Casting 8 spells is the hardest max condition. Guess its good in big priest since they use 25 spells and lyra priest. Also the final form isnt even that much value when you consider the og resurrect was 2 mana so we’re getting 8 mana worth of ressurections. I guess we could argue that each consecutive res is worth more. Im definitely going to have fun with this card, Priest is my favorite class, or was before it became “good” and everyone started using it. I was just hoping for more inherent value.

        Are you talking about the card or the class, if your talking allot the class, can you honestly tell me you’re not sick of seeing priest by now, I still love the class but priests are everywhere.

        if you’re talking about card:

        Hunter, warlock, shaman and warrior can max out in two cards.
        Druid and paladin can max out with 1 card in 2 turns
        Mage can max out using 2 cards and 4 mana with firefly
        Rogue is the only other one that requires you lay it in a specific deck.

          Honestly no this priest meta is far better than the face warrior meta, the jade druid, the midrange shaman meta or even the freeze mage meta. If you think that razakus priest is non-interactive you might not have known freeze mage in it’s early days which the only counter was to play flare( which is terrible) or to play a 100+armor control warrior.

      Yah you’re totally right, being able to resummon lich king, yshaarj, ysera and an obsidian statue for a third or fourth time, all for 7 mana is tootally unplayable right? Easy 5/5 stars

        He didn’t say it was unplayable, he said it was much harder to upgrade than most of the others.

        Do you not know how to read?

      And you have to take account that it’s not “just” 4 resurrects, its Fucking 4 resurrects bundled TOGETHER IN ONE CARD, it’s value goes far beyond 8 mana. Also it resurrects 4 DIFFERENT minions ( in it’s highest rank, which in a deck like big priest that only run about six minions and the rest is spells it’s not hard to do), that’s far better than 4 minons because there is no super low roll with 4 Barnes summoned by this, you’re always GUARANTEED to summon 3 big minions.

      I agree with you on this one. Although quad resurrect could be broken (if only the lich king died, is would cry than concede.) The odds of you fully activating it means 8 spells cast. That alone not bad, but chances you max out the second one are quite a bit lower unless you start with both of them.
      All in all, 8/10, broken when used right but not for everyone!
      (P.S. I’ve always wanted there to be an otk velen priest and I think this helps that goal , I would like to see decklists if people have ideas!)
      (P.P.S I know razakus priest already almost has a velen otk, but i mean a true , all you need is velen and a damage spell combo, something like spellstone for 4 velens then mindblast for 40, if you can get that to work!)
