    Strong versatile card that has good synergies with deathrattles and reborn. It’s the exact type of card that midrange priest needed.
    I wonder tough how does this work with Recurring Villain, Zerek, Da Undatakah and minions summoned from Psychopomp. Do those minions keep their enchantments and added keywords? My initial guess would be that no, otherwise the card would be even better than already is.

    Terrorscale Stalker for Priest, plus more versatility? 5/5

    It curves nicely after Thalnos/Hoarder/etc against greedier decks too

    Peter Whalen just confirmed on Twitter that if you hit the second half of a reborn minion with this, you get the original minion back at full health with reborn. So this card is even stronger than I thought

      But it does not count as healing right? XD That would make the card even more OP for the priest quest…

    Wait, if you use this on a reborn minion, does the target reborn minion not just lose it’s reborn because it dies? Reborn is not the same as Deathrattle. Yes you would get a full health version and a 1 health version, BUT I think booth wont have reborn anymore.

    I guess testing to find out…. Unless someone can confirm this?

    Pretty epic, summons you a reborn copy of a minion and triggers deathrattles. I like.

    Aside from the obvious reborn minions as a target, it can also be used with Leeroy like shadowstep.

    Oh, wow, yeah. 5 Stars. You can use this for Mech Priest, or just Most Priest decks in general. You can even cheat out for more card draw with Loot Hoarder or even your Treasure (if you want to go that far off), and destroy it with Wretched Reclaimer. I am very surprised that this isn’t an Epic. Normally, a card like this uncommon to be a Rare (Even though Priest used to have Drakonid Operative, and that was a crazy card on its own.) Looking forward to seeing if Priest can Shift the Meta, and faces against Warriors, Hunters and Mages. (Oh and Paladins and some Rouges here and there.)

    This will be a cornerstone of Priest Tempo decks. 5/5

    I would say “broken i hate it”, but i need to see how is the interaction between this and reborn first hand.

      you cant call this card broken – look at warrior right now.

        meh, warrior is already a tier one, why care for how broken is his broken-ness, i rather hate new cards, than falling sleep while playing against a new MAYBE broken warrior, rather than an already broken warrior?

    More sheanigans with Amet, play a 3/7, destroy any reborn to bring 2 more x/7 copies on board, plus the reborn one… And you toss in the deck 2 divine spirits and Inner fire, just in case you get the “oh, i won now draw”…
    Oh boy Amet will totally be abused…

    Great for reborn you can use it on a minion that died to reset it’s reborn effect. You can also use this as a manual trigger for deathrattles

      Dont know if it will work that way… if the reborn minion will regain its “reborn” effect.
      If its the case then yes, its an incredible strong play with any reborn minion

        If look up reborn mechanic it states that if a reborn minion died even this one that came back with 1 health it would still be ressurected as if it was the original with its own reborn tag. This kills a minion and brings it back so if you were to use this on a reborn minion that had died once this would bring it back at full health with a new reborn tag on it.

          Reborn is not Deathrattle so dont assume it works like Deathrattle just because it’s similiar.

            I never said it was like it the use with reborn is that when it dies the first time and comes back with 1 health you can use this to kill it then it would come back as full health version with reborn on it again.

            I’m taking this from when looked up how reborn will interact with ressurects mechanics.

    Nice with reborn, except we still haven’t seen a decent reborn card.
    However this card combines really well in combination with Embalming Ritual and Psychopomp.

    At this point of the Reveal Season, Priest is the clear winner and we even didn’t see the Quest. This card is awesome. 5/5.

    Bonkers with reborn. I love how Paladin got the reborn quest but Priest gets all the best reborn cards and synergies lmao. 4/5 cause it always requires another minion on board.

    In addition to good synergy with reborn, this card would be fun to try with Spirit of the Dead or any decent deathrattle. This card has potential.

    The issue is will the Saviors of Uldum meta allow for a deck like this to prosper. That I don’t know, but I am sure this card will see experimentation and even constructed play somewhere down the line.

    thats like the 3/3 deathrattle trigger from hunter.
    but can also trigger reborns + heals the minion + resets divine shields
    very good

    Reincarnate on a Stick. And we all know how OP Reincarnate was.

    OK, this is dust.

    • Sealbinder

      The issue is that you are comparing this from one meta to another. Reborn does make this a lot better. Also the body attached to it makes for a much better play, especially with reborn or deathrattle. The body is not great, but the stats are okay for a three drop with an effect. It is a much more effective tempo play.

      Not going to say the card is going to define a meta, but I think it has much higher potential now especially in the priest class vs the shaman class. Reincarnate was in the wrong class, since Shaman could not properly use deathrattles.

        No, no, no, it’s ok. Let tardisgreen dust all the cards he doesn’t like and then get beat by them in competitive. His loss

    Seems like a solid card that will see play, does require other cards on the board to be good but it’s only 3 mana so not hard to play one on same turn in later game. I give it 4 stars since it’s very powerful but not good on it’s own. Also that art looks like the Golden Version will be awesome with the swirling portal.

    wow good synergies with reborn, 5/5
