    Mostly a tech card vs Revive shenanigans.

    There’s various ways to (try to) exploit it, either by removing the tokens or using them as synergy (Psychopomp/revives? Cheap AoE? Sea Giant/Rabble Bouncer/Mogu Fleshshaper? Desert Spear? Mossy Horror?) but it all seems meta-specific rather than “heck yeah, can’t wait to make that play”.

    Eeeeeehhh… I like it. It’s interesting, to say the least. Assuming that the opponent will have at least 1 2 Attack minion, this is Arguable a 4 Mana 3/3 at the absolute worse and a 4 Mana 3/6 at the best. so It’s a 3 Mana 3/5. … Huh. Ooo-kay, maybe it’s not as good as I assume of it. Looks like we need to be more creative then that, because the Stats are really good, but the Drawback is what we want to draw and Cheat out, if possible. And as of right now, we don’t have any recruits other than Warrior, and a bit of Paladin here and there.

    So I think the idea is that, To gain the full potential of Zuldrak Ritualist (Other than using it to destroy your opponent with Divine Spirits and Inner FIres or Topsy Turvy, It wants you to “solve it’s puzzle” by also getting rid of those minions. Purchase you use something like Mage with Flakmage and Playing a Secret. It’ll cost 9 Mana, sure, but You’d have a 3/2 that interacts with spirits and a “free” 3/9 body, because you got rid of those minions, making it a 9 mana… 6/11 with a taunt in terms of stats… Yeeeah… It’s … it’s alright. Like I said, It’s a card that we need to be creative with if we want the full potential. I can see this just being a filler card and then just calling it a day, but as of right now, I don’t think we have enough tools to make Zul’Drak work other than Priest. so 2 Stars Overall because I don’t think players will use it, but they will try and meme with it here and there.

    I see a few uses for this card. First is in combination with Mind Control Tech to give your opponents tokens and then steal one, or with spreading plague to get more plague tokens. Also has niche use as a counter to Resurrect Priest, but that deck is garbage in Wild now, and with N’zoth leaving in Standard I’m not sure if it will be a good game plan for Priest. You can also use this in an Oaken Summons deck, but Hecklebot was eventually cut by the best players because the battlecry was often a liability, and I feel like this card will suffer a similar fate.

      On note of hecklebot liability it was because against some decks it could pull out powerfully cards in this case no matter what opponent gets it WILL be 1 cost minions.

    This is a res priest counter card however it’s also a card res priest would run because of that huge health on a 4 cost minion. So it would definitely make mirror matches between priest more interesting. There are a few 1 costs that it’d suck for opponent to get though so there is that. Overall this is a card that will see a lot of play merely for fact it practically shuts down one classes most common current deck.

    Goodbye, Big Priest!

      Indeed my first thought too. Maybe a techcard in wild for classes that can’t transform minions. Otherwise 1 star.

      Big priest has been garbage since the Barnes nerf…and was arguably not that good (though frustrating to play against) before that nerf.

    Probably a filler

      a tech card not a filler.

      Tell that to the res priest / big priest. This card both kills and helps priest decks depending on who’s using it.

        But res priest Will lose N’zoth, (so probably wont make meta unless The priest galakrond is better than it looks for res priest) and i havent seen a res priest card yet in DoD, but yes, in wild this Will be a pretty good tech card

          There was a res priest before Nzoth was added Nzoth just broke it even more.
