    At worst, it’s a 1/2 with Reborn, so a 1/2 followed by a 1/1; that’s substantially worse than Hench-clan Hogsteed.

    At best, it’s that plus two +1/+1 buffs, which are worth two mana (Extra Arms). I think the payout promised by this card is large enough to make up for the weak initial body, especially since this is a turn 2 play and you have plenty of time to capitalize on Grandmummy’s long-term promise. 4/5

    Don’t understand where all the 1-star ratings are coming from. The people that compare this with Fire Fly have to remember that Fire Fly was insanely broken and played in nearly every deck until rotation, and you still see it in Wild. Just because there’s a better card in Wild doesn’t mean this is a 1-star card. Priest has almost zero early game options in Standard right now, this is the card it needs to push the early game. Definitely a 4-star card.

      i rly rly think that only none-priest players rated this higher than 1 star.

      4 Star card ? no way

      Push the early game ? with a 2 mana 1/2 useless deathrattle if your 1 Mana drop is still alive when your opponent kills Grandmummy ? do you want to play this on curve without friendly minions on board ? this is super crap dude imho

    In theroy, this is a Better Shadow Ascendant from The Knights of the Frozen Throne since that card dies too quickly, even with both of those cards budding each other to make themselves 3/3s. But now with GrandMummy, especially for someone like Tempo or Zoo Priest, so It will be interesting to see what this deck can do.

    Zoo Priest was once a thing before it became completely forgotten, but now may be Reborn back from it’s own grave. (Pun intended.)

    On a serious note, however, I would consider looking forward toward this card, as Zoo and Tempo Priest are getting some decent cards. Maybe not a complete Tier 1 deck, but I can see it being Tier 2 / Tier 3, for sure. Giving it 4 stars, because when you think about it, the “Reborn Mechanic” for something this early feels like It’s own version for Zilliax, where the card has value and does do it job pretty well, unlike Shadow Ascendant, were it just tried to buff your minions and that was it. Not giving it 5, because I’m not confident enough.

    It’s actually a nice card and if you really think about it this is basically almost a Firefly that has you pay full Mana cost up front and buffs a minion you may have on the board.

    5 stars for the name and art. The little mummies are adorable!

    In standard, with just the cards currently revealed, maybe a 2/5. I think it has potential due to the reborn effect with deathrattle. I would prefer if it had a Lost Spirit type of effect that effects the entire friendly board. Even if it only gave attack or better yet health it would be much better.

    ok this is a 2 mana 4/6 worth of stats

    How is this ever bad

      i think it’s 4/5, but you need a second minion on board (twice) for the full stats. The opponent can kill the second minion first and then this one. Where as with shadow ascendant you have the + 1/1 immediately (garanteed).

      That’s the worst way you can evaluate a card. Like, SN1P-SN4P is not “effectively a 4/5 minion” (even though I’ve seen him called one many times when he was announced)… It can’t hit for 4, it doesn’t add +4/+5 on Magnetize etc. Summing stats of minion + Deathrattles/buffs/other effect it provides is very misleading. The stats are often delayed, spread across multiple bodies etc. You can’t just add them together and call it a day. An extreme example of it would be calling Devilsaur Egg a 3 mana 5/8. It just doesn’t work like that.

      In this case, if your opponent has a 4/4 minion on the board, you can’t kil lit with this card and won’t have a 4/1 on the board left. If you have no other minion when it dies, the buff is wasted. Heck, you can’t even kill your opponent’s high priority 2-drop (e.g. Sorcerer’s Apprentice) on curve. How is that a “4/6” (which is really 5 if you add all the stats)?

    Definitely not a 1 star card
    Can be very good, it’s sticky and a strong followup to northshire cleric.

      why is this not a 1 Star card ?

      even a firerly was 1/2 + 1/2 for 2 Mana. .. Where did you see the value ? how is this better than Shadow Ascendant wich gives a friendly minion +1/+1 in the same turn – every turn ?

      Grandmummy cant buff itself btw, Deathrattler trigger before Reborn.

    1/5 Rating.

    sorry, but this card is completely trash 100%.

    the stats are terrible, you cant even trade with aggro, the card has zero pressure on board and even if it dies once, you’ve played a 2 Mana 2/3. So it has to die twice + you need to have minions on the board to get value…and value means, a random minion gets +1/+1…..plus your opponent can easily play around it. I would say this is one of the worst 2 drops priest ever had.

    This is a SUPER SUPER BAD Shadow Ascendant (2 Mana 2/2. At the end of your turn, give a firendly minion +1/+1).

    Priest NEEDS a 2 drop wich is playable on curve asap.

    Aggro priest anyone? Hahaha.. no.. if this was taunt it would be incredible but in most cases you can just remove the other minions and this becomes nothing much. I’d actually love if this could buff itself after death so you’d be left with a 2/2 in worst case scenario but I don’t think that quite works?

    If you have two of these on the field it creates some shenanigans but that’s about it. A solid 3 star card I’d say
