Dragon Soul Card Review
The first ever legendary weapon and wow, what a powerhouse of a card it is! At 3 mana, it is extremely easy to play. More importantly, it’s yet another “spell activator” for Priest, akin to Lyra. It looks like Spell Priest is getting more and more support and Kobolds & Catacombs might be the peak of that archetype. Currently, Highlander Priest is very heavy on cheap spells and multiple payoff cards – from the win condition of Shadowreaper Anduin to value generators such as Lyra the Sunshard, draw engines like Gadgetzan Auctioneer, Priest of the Feast, Wild Pyromancer, etc. I feel that Dragon Soul slots effortlessly into that deck (among a potential new Priest archetype that might come out from K&C) and is primed with potential for greatness. As far as we are currently aware, it activates for every three spells you cast, including multiple times per turn. 5/5s are relatively big minions and even if they don’t measure up well against your average Deathwing, they are still a threat that must be answered. There is something to be said about utilizing the power of cheap spells (that do very little on their own) to generate extra resources. Adding on top of their value, however more or less it may be, and turning the downside of filling your deck with them into the upside of also generating threats is a powerful and scary thing.
It could also be a completely separate build around card, together with some of the already mentioned, that doesn’t want to be in a highlander style of deck. The added consistency of two copies of all of the cheap spells, multiple Shadow Visions and activators does sound like a deck, and if that deck is churning out 5/5s like crazy, then maybe it’s even a good deck! Time will tell, but it’s certainly an option worth exploring.
