      You don’t even need Justicar. Coldarra + Raza = insta win from ping

    Have you noticed the subtle difference in wording compared to Reno. No double Shadowform in these decks – I reckon these new highlander cards will only work in ‘true’ single card decks and not in ‘I’ve used all my dupes, so now it activates’ decks.

    For all those of you wondering, a blizzard employee replied to the question of wether this works with justicar and whatnot, and it does. So thats a good thing to know, definitely increases my hopes for this card!

    imagine this with justicar upgrade, and then playing auction master beardo with corrupted healing, with all the flash heals and everything, could probably otk with just a few spells and 4 dmg hero power, or use forbidden shaping on turn 8, cast corrupted healing first to get 6 mana and then gg

    Will RenoPriest work? I doubt it. Why not create a strong legendary card that I can put in any priest deck.

      Iยดm already playing it for a few months and its pretty good, almost as good as reno mage.

    Ya it’s strong but any highlander deck is going to struggle with consistency especially priest who has barely any draw options. Doesn’t stop me from playing it, Reno shadow dragon priest are all some of my most favorite decks blizz really coming through on the fun scale

    If u can get somehow Coldara drakefrom discover with it and any dmg effeckt on hero power its insta GG ๐Ÿ˜› on turn 6 with shadowform/finlley/ auchenai on table still with garnison comander is alot of dmg and with berado and bunch of cheap spels still can seee it OTK enemy ( probably with velen too)
    i like that contept perfecktly desined card

    I wouldn’t bother with Justicar in a Reno Deck…..if you can get double Shadowform thats a free Darkbomb every turn and with a Garrison Commander thats a 2 mana Fireball…or just a free fireball next round if you can manage to get him to stick.

    You pull a Coldarra Drake from Shifting Shade after playing this card….

    November 18, 2016 at 12:25 pm

    Okey so this would be one of the most powerfull cards if it was neutral, yes. But how often do you need every 10:th, 9:th etc of mana. Priest is a class that often have nothing to play

      It’s an Etheral. The same race as Rafaam and Etheral Conjurer and Peddler. However this one is made of chains instead of cloth, hence the name.

    This + Coldarra Drake+ShadowForm = GG

    With the discover mage cards (since no one is playing the drake really, you won’t thought steal)… lol someone will post a video of it though

      November 18, 2016 at 9:57 am

      It’s the first thing that came to my mind. This kind of thing can’t exist in the game – too broken.

      • CarnivoreApple

        Coldarra is tgt, will be removed soon enough (even though it is rare to achieve already, no duplicates)

        True Casino Mage: 28 legendary cards, prince Malkazar and Codara drake. Pray for Raza to be added by Malkazar and draw Codara on turn 6 to win.

          You can only get neutral or your class legendaries from malkazar.

      November 18, 2016 at 10:17 am

      Sarad, Beardo, and Paletress all seem like good cards for this kind of deck.
      Plus the crazy new spells for priest

  19. Ispep
    November 18, 2016 at 8:40 am

    This is definitely one of the most unique cards, and I think will be an autoinclude in all priest decks just due to the fact it can mean you dont have to choose between heal and playing on curve

    • Darknes386
      November 18, 2016 at 9:06 am

      It’s just a vanilla 5-5 if you don’t have a reno style deck though

          Play it on the off chance you draw the doubles in your deck I guess

    If you change your hero power after playing this guy (Finley, Justicar, Shadowform etc) will it still cost zero?

    • Evident - Author

      I’m going to check on this, but I believe it will still cost 0.

        It’s confirmed, your Hero Power will remain 0 mana regardless of if you change it or not: https://www.reddit.com/r/hearthstone/comments/5dmt79/amaz_new_card_revealed/

          That makes Raza quite powerful. On turn 6 you can restore 6 health to your hero with your normal hero power and Justicar’s upgraded version. Even though this is a very powerful card I don’t think it will be worth sacrificing multiple copies of cards. I think Reno priest will be fun while Dragon and Control will be more competitive.

  21. David Cruz Conesa

    Can we have any Hope about Reno beeing traded to classic? I feel really bad about All those single copy decks because of that. Who is gonna Craft a card for just 4 moths? They also reveled fantastic cards for warloks that Will Be unplayable without Reno or anything similar. To many cards from this expansion are died without Reno.

    • Clay
      November 18, 2016 at 8:49 am

      They better move Reno because this expansion will suck without him I hope they don’t think Kazakus is good enough to replace him

        Reno will still be in Standard until early next year.

        League of explorers came out in early 2015 so when the first new release comes out in 2017 all cards the came out in 2015 will be cycled out of standard

    So since it’s a battlecry and the wording says “this game” that means its from the rest of the game on. Effect doesn’t go away when he’s removed, right?

    • TimeToDuel
      November 18, 2016 at 9:05 am

      I think it’ll be mostly a fun card, but I doubt it will actually be “OP” for consistency. Priest relies heavily on comboing cards (auchenai, potion+cabal/SWP/Shadow Madness etc.), having 1 card of each almost never works for priest.

      • CarnivoreApple
        November 18, 2016 at 11:35 am

        You will be proven wrong.

        • Chef

          No, he’s 100% Right.

          Everyone who says this Card is Broken has Never try to Play Reno Priest, its absolutely bad and inconsistent.

          After 2K Priest Matches i can say, priest without combos is Garbage. Priest is not Mage.

          This Legenary/Effect is OK on turn 5 (5/5 + 2 heal), Great in The Following Turns 6-10, and just obsolet Turn 10+, priest Never Ever hat a Problem to manage The 2 mana for heropower After Turn 10. Most of The turns you in lategame you wont Play more than 1 Card, entomb pe whatever, Cause priest lack of Carddraw especially in Reno priest.

          I dont beliebe The Hype

    Seems pretty good but I am not sure single cards decks Will Be good enough when Reno leves standard. Other cards that have good synergies like Justicar and the 5/4 inspire summon a legendary are out At 31dec, less that a month after the relese. The curve this in 5, Justicar in 6 and the legendaris summoner in 7 seems insane. 2016 has been a hard day for priests and they Will have they Revenge in december.

    • Moohlord
      November 18, 2016 at 9:10 am

      The standard rotation changes with the first new release in 2017, not on January 1st. So Reno will leave us around March or April.

        No thaurissan needed, just turn 8 and some cheap spells
