I like that Priest is largely reverting to its old identity of “loses to 4 power minions”. That said, I don’t really buy the hype on this card. It’s almost never going to be infused, so basically 5 mana to kill all 3 power and below minions is what you’re looking at. I get that it fills a gap for Quest Priest at 5 mana, but I don’t really think this is as good as people are saying. That 4 mana dragon does pretty much the same thing; this just full clears like Xhilag for 1 more mana?
Insane AOE Card for Priest and finally Priest get a good 5 mana card to make quest priest way better, also it is a holy spell.
Just an autoinclude in every control priest. Wheter Infused or not Infused. 5/5
I get the infuse makes it stronger. But stronger to destroy all minion?
You sacrifice your own friendlies just so you can destroy all better? Very weird design.
I would make it so that infuse part only target enemies.
The baseline version of the card is already pretty good: similar to Shadow Word: Horror, but better because of how important the 3 attack check is for minions as a whole. The infused version is, of course, insanely good, pretty much being a Twisting Netherfor 5 mana most of the times, but this card fits in a deck which has very few minions. Is that going to be an issue for this card? I think not, and that is because control decks, especially Priest decks, do tend to run a good amount of minions anyway, with stuff like Mi’Da even resummoning themselves without you paying anything for it. The other upside of running Infuse cards in control decks is that you don’t care that much about the topdeck scenario, since control usually relies on well maintained value and not on cheap card draw to look for answers.
All in all, this looks like a control priest stable going forward.
