Divine Hymn Card Review

Wow, I think that this card is very good. Paladin cries in the corner with its Holy Light. 6 healing to all friendly CHARACTERS means that it will heal all of your minions and your Hero. Yes, you could already do something similar with Circle of Healing – for 0 mana! But it also healed your opponents’ board, and didn’t heal your Hero, which is a big deal. Priests have been commonly running Greater Healing Potion, since the meta was aggressive enough that some sort of healing was just necessary. Now, while healing yourself, you can refresh some health on your minions, possibly draw cards or even summon 3/3’s in the late game.

It will be a great replacement for Greater Healing Potion, I can totally see Control Priest wanting to run two copies of this card. Other decks probably won’t want it, since it’s a slower card, but it looks like a great fit into a Control build.

Just remember that it won’t work like Circle of Healing with Auchenai Soulpriest – this combo will most likely destroy your board and possibly even kill you.

Card rating: 8/10

    I would hardly call this broken. It will quite often restore all of your guys back up to full health and the six health to your hero will help out against aggressive decks and in the late game, but this will be about as much playable healing as Priest will have access to since there’s no Reno or Greater Healing Potion.

    A lot of the time this won’t do much more than Binding Heal will at least without health buff cards like Kabal Talonpriest. I’m not doubting this will be a widely played Priest card, but I don’t think this will be gamebreaking with all of the good cards Priest will be losing to the rotation. Unless Spiteful Priest sticks around in some form, Priests just can’t really go wide.

        There has been some speculation for a Spiteful Elemental Mage to play Book of Specters because it is such a powerful draw effect. Maybe Spiteful Priest would do similarly for this card, but you are right in that they’ll usually have to choose between them.

            Neither does Book of Specters unless you get really lucky and combo it with a legendary two cost minion.

            Granted, this and Northshire Cleric on a damaged board would still draw a few cards.

        So, steering people towards slowing down and thinking about the card within the context of the Priest class as a whole, is a bad thing? I never called anyone an idiot, I just asked questions or brought up flaws in the class that stop this from being a problem or relatively easy ways for other classes to counter this.
        This will end up seeing play in most Priest decks since it is rather good, but it is far from the OP nightmare people are thinking it will be. Priest just won’t have the same minion base or focus in The Witchwood as other classes will.
        Almost every single Priest card from this set has received an outcry of “OMG OP!!! OMG OP!!!” because they do things cards in Hearthstone have rarely done before if ever or they have really big effect. None of them are bad, they’re all pretty decent, but that doesn’t stop measured approaches to new cards rarely resulting in people getting burned on the mythical new OP legendary or deck being a total flop like a handful of decks from Un’Goro and cards like Professor Putricide and Sindragosa were.
        I know one of my friends is really looking forward to building a full Lady in White deck with Lightwells and other low cost, high health minions, but he admits it’s probably not going to work.

      That’s a rather late game combo, and if it happens often enough, Warlocks will be sure to save a Twisting Nether for just that.

          Outside of Spiteful Priest, the match-up is only slightly in favor of the Priest as a whole at the moment, and with the class literally losing half of their good cards and maybe getting four of them replaced, Warlock will be in a great position comparatively.

    It’s not a bad card by any means, but it depends on the deck, if your gonna run Auchenai (which you probably might with netherspite historian and drakonid cycling out and the synergy with the new squashling card) you’re probably just better off running with circle of healing.

      Priest is hardly a minion based class. Typically, it can’t go wide enough to get that much value from the card.

    It heals your hero too right ? So you don’t even need to build a board or do anything to take advantage of it, the cost/efficiency is great already. It will be good against aggro or control, whether you’re winning or losing. No downsides.

      Doesn’t that all also apply to Binding Heal, card that costs 1 and heals for 1 less health? That card may only affect one minion, but how many damaged minions do you typically get on a priest board?

        Are you trying to justify this power-up somehow ? Binding heal was far from a bad card already, even by Priest standards.
        It’s very easy to get several minions on board with Priest, many of them have tons of hp, and it’s not going to change with the expansion (Lady in white synergies, the new beast with 12 health).
        And 1 more mana doesn’t really mean much here. You can still combo it whenever, play it whenever needed. It’s litterally the perfect control tool. A straight upgrade from Binding Heal, definitely.

        You don’t even need to play it optimally as you imply. Just 1 minion and you get good value. More than that and this 2 mana card can carry the entire turn.

        Honestly I’m not sure what you’re trying to say here. Do you really think this card was needed ? Do you think it’s good for the game to have 1 card so far above anything else, from any other class ? Especially on one of the strongest class atm ?

          With the loss of usefulness of the Dragon Package, Kabal Talonpriest, Priest of the Feast, Barnes, Y’Shaarj, and a few other minions other than the core a couple of classic Priest minions, Witchwood Grizzly, and say some of the stuff from Un’Goro, what sort of minions will Priest have to consistently full the board and survive long enough to get healed?

          If you hit one minion with this, you’re only getting as much value out if it as Binding Heal. Hitting multiple ones with Northshire Cleric would definitely be good. This is a good card, especially in control match-ups.

          This card was in some way needed in Standard to replace greater healing potion as a bigger healing tool for Priest in general.

          This card is not anywhere near game breaking as it is most useful against control decks, which might be able to consistantly bait this out to get the value removed with Brawl or Twisting Nether, and often too insignificant against aggro decks that’ll usually be able to beat you down before you’d get too much out of it if the current match-up Spiteful Priest has against aggro is anything to go by.

          Priest is a pretty strong class at the moment, but it is going to be one of the heaviest hit by the rotation along with Druid, and given the lackluster core Priest cards, a powerful but not broken card like this will be what Priest need to remain competitive outside of the Spiteful variant.

    How can people be so bad?
    This is clearly the change for greater healing potion which is going to wild. Greater healing potion was an important card for the priest theme and decks, it was pretty clear that they had to make something similar for the HEALING CLASS.
    How much times priest has a full board (considering that big priest is dieing with Y’Shaarj and barnes rotating)? In quest with N’Zoth? Or some type of injured blademaster deck?
    Yes, it’s a decent card, but in no way broken or meta-defining. In more than 50% of the cases you’ll just use this for 6 heal against aggro. I swear these days anything a priest card would do people will say “OMG BROKEN” and when the meta starts still cubelock, otk and aggro decks dominate.

      You should probably play priest more often because this card is by no means broken.
      It’s unplayable in spiteful priest because it’s a small spell.

      It’s good in combo priest but the issue is that combo priest probably won’t see any play in standard because you lose talonpriest, potion of madness, netherspite, and operative.

      So the only deck that will be seriously playing this deck would be control priest. But even in control priest, you won’t have a huge board where 6 AOE healing will be crucial. Yes is it a good card, but no it’s not a broken card

        Its cute how you apply this card to current meta decks to see if its will be used. Think of it this way: Even if you only have three minions on the board who are damaged including your face, you are healing face for 6hp (half of Healing potion) and you pretty much completely heal all your minions on board for only TWO MANA. That is the same cost as using your hero power once. It is ESSENTIAL for control priest and for any deck that runs a northshire cleric honestly.

        But I don’t know why I’m arguing with a Mill Shaman about this. You’re already lost.

        i dont know what r u talking about man.
        i play priest and it was my favor deck since the heartstone came to arrp store about 5 years ago.
        i always remmeber inner fire deck was a priest deck in any meta it was there without or with operative.sure talon priest is gone but we have some replace for them. like the new elemental or some other big hp minions.
        its not nesseccery to have a wide board to get full heal of this.
        u can combine this clreric and draw 2 or 3 cards thats insane and u get face heal.
        even if u heal 3 minion for 6 and priest minions are big that still is a sick turn for u.
        the good point of this card is this is 2 mana u can combine it with velen and heal 12 everything and thats more insane u cant do this with healing potion.this is best healing card ever.

      Priest has better ways of dealing with a wide board than Soul Priest at the moment. Otherwise it would play Soul Priest + Circle of Healing.

            Dude, i know everyone is entitled to opinion but did you really have reply to every single comment to prove you are right and nobody else is? Most of these were initial reactions to this card, not long thought opinions.

            Meta is going to change there are very likely going to priest other than spiteful wich is going to want to run this.

            It’s better than binding heal for sure. I’ts not like you are going to have only 1 minion injured on the board during the game and it restores 1 extra health wich is nice.

            Priest is a control class and you are likely going to have big board present at some point in the game. iIt allows you to trade very greedy while also healing your face. And just because it does both , it works against aggro and control. With the new lady in white deck coming up your midions are bound to have alot of health and this well definetly see play there.

            Second though given it might not be broken but still a great card and a total powercreep to that paladin heal.

            Soup is right. 1 more mana for that slight minion healing difference is not worth it. You need 1: multiple minions and 2: for them to be damaged. Add the fact that that binding heal can combo with auchenai in some situations and you have a cheaper and overall mote flexible card. If you want to heal minions, vircle of healing is MUCH better. Hymn is just a redundant mix between the two

    This… it’s difficult to rate this. It can be very powerful with a high-health board. With Velen your Hero restores 12 health. But those case scenarios will probably not occur often. So in worse case scenario, this could be read as 2 mana: restore 6 health to your hero. It can definitely be included in Big Priest, now that Greater Healing Potion is rotating. And if you get to heal two minions with Cleric on board, you get insane value. I’m gonna go with 3.5/5 stars, I think it’s worse than Greater Healing Potion as Hero heal, and can’t combo like Circle of Healing for damage with Auchenai Soulpriest. But in the scenarios where you do have a board, this can be very useful.
