    I feel like we don’t know enough of the other cards yet to know whether or not this is good. I mean you could use it with Shrinkmeister to kill a Ysera but you could just steal it with a Cabal or you could just use Entomb which is just one card and is an autoinclude at this point..

    Its pretty decent card, i think its very strong with shrinkmeister since that creature doesnt die to the horror.\

    On its own, i dont think the card is very strong, as priests tend to have low attack, high health minions.

    Might appear in a few control priests, but more combo potential might probably arise from it. With cards like abusive or dark iron, you can lift some of your creatures out of range of the horror. (Of course, your abusive will die)

    Finally tho! We needed another counter to maexxna!

      I advice using cabal over this card to ‘deal’ with meaxxna. isn’t shrinkmeister leaving the standard mode?

    This card is garbage. 1) It destroys your own creatures 2) the number of creatures with two attack that are also a threat are few as is in most matchups, and a simple four drop creature would do better 3) turn four is too late to be dealing with them 4) it’s super easy to buff a two attack minion to make it bigger, so even against zoo, tempo mage or aggro shaman, you’re looking at a useless card in most situations. I would not even draft this card in arena.

    How good is this card…. well priest becomes the most controlish and boring class in hs!
    More boring is maybe control warrior.
    So turn 2 shadow word pain, turn 3 shadow word death, turn 4 kill all minions with 2 attack, turn 5 kill all minions with 2 health, aka holy nova, turn 6 lightbomb. I guess in the next expention will get “shadow word smorc” for 7 mana just kills ur opponent))

    Actually guys, I remember hearing from Blizzard that this expansion will have spells and effects that debuff minions, so it may be very easy to use this card to handle big minions.

    Would be cool if Priest got some sort of card similar to Eadric The Pure.

    Doesnt kill knife juggler, buffed tunnel trogg, and not even patrons. Not sure how good this will actually be.

      I agree, it might only be good against token decks.

        Now that I think about it more, it would be pretty good against early game Secret Paladin in Wild. You can take out Shielded Minibot and Muster tokens with it. It’s also good against Imp Gang Boss and Imp-losion… It should also be noted that it destroys your own minions, so you’ll have to be careful with your Deathlord and Northshire Cleric.

          I was talking standard, but it seems alright for wild I guess. I can’t see this making a huge impact on the competitive meta though.

            since it kills your own minions holy nova is just 1000 times better

      Can’t even kill murlocks on its own picture, because they buffs the dmg each other 😀

        haha all it takes is murloc warleader and none of the murlocs can be removed with this, also the grimscale oracle gets most other murlocs out of range and can’t kill puddlestomper, its a very bad card against murlocs
