    pretty good with brann dragon priest. Don’t think it’s nearly as good in control priest.

      If somehow you play it with brann thorisan (unlikely) it’s gg.

    To be fair, I am the last person to be a fan of this legendary.
    But seriously guys, am I the only one seeing Blood of the Ancient One synergy?

    I really like this legendary and I think people fail to properly judge this card. You have to look at the best case, and normal case scenarios.

    Best case is playing this when a crazy legendary is still alive on your board. This will usually be instantly game winning. Any card which instantly wins the game let’s say 2/10 matches is really good already.

    He gets even better when you think of the more common case scenario, all you need is a single card which will draw you a card on the board. Just having a loot hoarder, or acolyte of pain makes him a 6 mana, 6/6 draw a card. That’s still pretty amazing and you can very easily pull this off at least the games where you can’t get him on a legendary.

    In the right deck, this guy will be at LEAST a 6/6 draw a card for 6 mana, wheras at best he’ll instantly win you the game. Very strong card.

    I think this could be insane, with most of the deathrattle minions being rotated out, museum curator has a good chance of giving you a bigger more powerful one such as cairn/syllvanas, both of which your opponent will ignore if they don’t have an entomb/recycle/polymorph/hex type card. Museum curator is a crazy way to ensure value and most priests already run 2!

    It looks like they introduce a good amount of new deathrattle cards and synergies with deathrattle. So in my opinion Herald could be pretty strong!

    Turn 8 leper gnome, leper gnome, this. Guaranteed 8 dmg?

    OK, so this card is decent. Not as good as you think. Tell you why ( if I’m wrong tell me))
    OK so first of all we get for 6 mana up to 3
    1-1s which probably die to AOe. Maybe not. In order to make them op, they have to have deathrattle or spell power. Let’s say Malygos or a good deathrattle card. Well if you played malygos turn 9 and he actually stayed alive you probably won already!!! And if you think a 5-5 summon a 1-1s with deathrattle is better then hunters feign death- you are wrong too. As you can double the deathrattle effect immediately with Rivender for the same cost and get 8 states with the effects you get out of ur deathrattle. And then. Do you see legendary players playing feign death hunter?

      hmm maybe if you got 2 BECKONER OF EVIL and Twilight Elder on the borde. in a c’thun deck (i know it not easy) but it is + 10 to c´thun and with 8 mana can you play beckoner of evil + Herald Volazj and give c’thun + 4 (only godt in a deathrattle and with other cards that benefit from herald volazj and c’thun)
      but there are also many other missing cards so maybe more godt cards to herald volazj

        Battlecries won’t activate from this.

      it’s going to synergy with the new cards. Don’t keep all you’re focus on the old ones. I do understand where you are coming from but the newer cards that supports C’thun is very likely going to work. it may also be played earlier than you think because even though its a 1/1 if you have lets say a sludge, it copies the taunt and the deathrattle so it can save you. Yes i’m aware it can easily be cleared with an aoe or a ping. BUT that’s either one aoe removed from their hand or 2 mana off their play (ping). Theres a lot of potential in this card.

    What I don’t understand is does he put a 1/1 token or is he gonna become the 1/1?

    • Evident - Author

      He creates 1/1 tokens of minions you have on the board.

    Hitting a tirion off this could be really good too

      Unfortunatly thats a really low chance since the card is for priest.

  12. CleverName

    Synergy with Validated Doomsayer, Deathrattles, Auras, and End/Start turn effects.

    Could make for some fun decks, competitive or not.

    Whether the card is good or not will be determined in practice, not debate. All i do know however is that blizzard made a really cool card and im excited to try it (god knows priest needs something good)

      This is a bit like a strange Dr. Boom. 5/5 for 6 is pretty standard for strong effects, and this has the potential for some very strong effects. Even with a Harvest Golem out, it starts getting value. It is a bit win-more, but even if you have only decent creature out, it can still be pretty good. As such, with its potential to go bonkers with things like Cairns or Ysera or Sylvanas (assuming Standard is a bit slower) means it just mind find a home in many Priest decks. I like it a lot.

      • Usurperlord
        March 21, 2016 at 1:57 pm

        I agree, i think if you have one or two cards with a crazy effect (ie sylvannas, alexstrza, rag, or even cairne) this could be something that seals out the game

    If you play this with brann would you get 2 1/1 branns plus the original one? Then play something like twilight guardian next turn and make him a 5/6 if they all survive

    • rockermj
      March 20, 2016 at 5:31 pm

      yes you would get two branns but i do not think that branns effect stacks with himself

      • TvojeMama
        March 21, 2016 at 4:20 am

        It does… 3 branns means that battlecry applies 4 times

        Also if you have brann already on the board and play Volazj for 6 and play Gormok the Impaler for you 4 deal total 16 damage to target

        • Svartsol
          March 21, 2016 at 9:12 am

          Brann effect is that “Your Battlecries trigger twice” it means that i will trigger two times

          and if you have two or six it’s still the same, battlecries will only trigger twice. noting more

          it does not say that “your battlecries will trigger an extra time” then it will stack

          i have tried more than once

    This card will get nerfed, new text will probably read summon a 1/1 copy of a random friendly minion.

    • IckyThumb
      March 20, 2016 at 1:51 pm

      I don’t think so. This would be a much worse Version of the Faceless Manipulator. More expensive and crap stats. This legendary probably won’t get nerfed.

    My initial thoughts were also: omg, what a cool card. But what you really want is good deathrattle minions to play this along the curve, which almost all are leaving standard. If any of the named cards stays for longer then a round on board, it is mostly “GG” anyway. In this sense this might be a “win more” card. Hard to say, I think this card is amazing by design and probably balanced.

    • Jafar
      March 20, 2016 at 11:14 am

      “named cards” being: Ysera, Ragnaros, Thaurissan, Paletress, I might also add Velen, Malygos, etc.

      • rockermj
        March 20, 2016 at 3:28 pm

        sylvanas? Also thaurissan is rotating

        • lennon255
          March 20, 2016 at 7:45 pm

          No, Thaurissan is not.

        • DisGuy114
          March 20, 2016 at 7:51 pm

          Thaurissan isn’t rotating, only Naxx and GvG.

        • TomBombadil
          March 20, 2016 at 7:52 pm

          Thaurissan isn’t rotating. Black rock is staying in Standard. Just GoT and Naxx.

  17. Ch1cken Slayer
    March 20, 2016 at 11:06 am

    wait; of each other minion in my hand or in my deck?

  18. IckyThumb
    March 20, 2016 at 10:52 am

    Ysera, Ragnaros, Shredder, Sky Golem, Sylvans, Thaurissan, Paltress and pretty much every good deathrattle card. Guess this one could be really good.

    • Poison
      March 20, 2016 at 10:57 am

      or fucking OP

    • DrToxic
      March 20, 2016 at 12:11 pm

      Shredder and Skygolem will not be part of standard (which i think is the mode everyone is evaluating the cards for) and the rest has the problem that they have to stick on the board to be used in combination with this card. And if one of the cards you named stays longer than one turn, your chance of winning grows drastically already. Like someone said before, its a “Win more”-Card. At this moment i would say, it will be fun to use, but not competitive.

    • rockermj
      March 20, 2016 at 3:31 pm

      too bad most of those are rotating

      • Svartsol

        You can use all card in Wild mode
