    That doesn’t have a deck. It doesn’t fit in res priest, combo priest doesn’t run any dragons, and there aren’t enough dragons for a dragon priest deck to form. It’s a good card, but no place for it right now.

      In Wild, though… Dragon Combo just got better (it needed it, to be honest 😉 ).

    Perfect card for Inner Fire Combo Dragon Priest. Should be a very strong deck in future.

    Ok I can already tell someone is going to try making an otk with this and it will probably involve galakrond due to cost reduction dragon. But the biggest perk is this can be used to add a removal card to your hand when needed depending on what spells you bring along.

    Obviously you don’t want to play this in a deck with tons of spells. Not only would the variance on what you’d get be absurd, but you’d also need to run dragons and I’m not sure what the pay-off would be.

    But in a creature-based dragon priest… say, oh, a midrange build, this is EXACTLY the kind of thing it wants. Running a few select spells for different situations (Breath of the Infinite, Time Rip, and maybe Silence, Mass Hysteria, or even a healing spell against Face Hunter) alongside all the dragons allows this card to nab exactly what you need in a given situation. Considering midrange priest’s worst matchup is aggro (at least, my build’s was) being able to guarantee drawing a board clear is HUGE. It lets you survive to the midgame where your own bombs and threats start to shine. This is the kind of thing midrange priest needed.

    I only have one criticism, and that’s WHY DO THE CHAPTERS HAVE TO BE STAGGERED??? I need all my darling midrange priest cards right this instant because I’m an impatient boi

    Arf so sad it doesn’t generate a copy, would have been a mini shadow visions

      That’s exactly what discover means. It doesn’t draw it, it gives you a copy of it.

        Incorrect. It’s worded like Master’s Call, which draws even if the all-beast condition isn’t fulfilled. If this made a copy of the spell it would be worded like Shadow Visions, which explicitly states “discover a copy of a spell in your deck.”

          With that logic, it would state “discover a spell from your deck and draw it.”

          Do we have any solid proof how it operates? This is very important because it could either be amazing or sh*t.

            Unfortunately we’ll only have precedent until the next chapter comes out next week, but honestly either option is still solid simply because you’re able to guarantee the spell you want.

          In fact, Master’s call specifically says “draw cards”, this does not. You are however correct that Shadow visions says “copy”. Hearthstone has been quite inconsistent for a very long time.
          I am 60% confident that it still works like Shadow visions.
