How will this card work vs. Single Player adventure bosses?? Steal their deck?
i will play this just to get the new Paladin Hero as a priest
Edit: Ofc the golden Version, cause i ever wanted a golden Paladin Deck
btw, yesterday i beat Exodia mage with her own Quest, stole it and finished it first, hahaha (Zoth Priest)
Cool card design I guess buts that’s best u will get 20 cards I feel u play on curve. However unlikely deadmans hand, this can’t go infinite.( usually warrior has one deadmans hand and jade Druid would have better ramp.). Even then that’s the best case.
Wow, this card is seriously overrated. I even saw an article comparing this card to yogg and call it “broken”. In which universe this card is good? Why would you even want an enemy deck? This ability is really crappy, you get random cards that you probably won’t even need. Only situation i can imagine this in play is some weird fatigue scenario. Overall statwise this card is bad and ability makes it even worse. I mean even if it would be 7 mana 8/8 it would still be unplayable.
The meta is slowing down. It is just a situational card.
If you are against a control/fatigue/slow deck, this card is pretty good when the enemy has 10-15 cards left. If you are against any type of aggro you just don’t play it.
It’s true, priest should get a better legendary than this situational card, but it’s not unplayable.
Have you ever been building a control deck and said, “Damn I wish I had more deckspace to include early game.”?
Here’s your answer
Early game after turn 7 (best case scenario)? Yeah, right ^^
Honestly… I hope the hero priest will be more effective : for a legendary this one seems to me doomed to oblivion
Its a lot of value packed in one card. That its useless vs aggro is obvius, as it is Ysera, Mediv, Mind Control, both the Elises, Pyroblast and almost any high value card. This card can win by itself the value game if it is played. My only though against is you can already do that in priest with new Elise and shadows. The desing is cool lets see if its competitve, anyway would create nice spots and will be fine.
Looks like now even control priest will be playing pirate warrior
I literally called this card when they were revealing things for old gods. Surprised it took so long.
Welp, Fatigue Priest is now a thing.
My Brain exploded.
Imagine mirror matchup.
I am wondering if it steals what is left (Late game you get less cards) Or the whole thing. And if it steals the whole thing does that include the starting hand/ quest card? I think it will only copy what is left and that disappoints me slightly. Still will be fun to see what combos people do with it.
