Shadow Word 4 attack exemption?

Target Minion takes 1 dmg per turn
Target Minion dies after its next attack
both would be worthless. Look at corruption and see how much that is used. Priest needs the hard removal to be in line with mages/shamans removal.

Bad priests then, true control priests need a ton of removal (about 15-18 spells) to be successful. But even then you are right, you need minions to back it up.
And yes, DS/IF combo blah blah, but a simple hex or poly or what have you in a match with a competent player will be waiting. If they didn't clear it the round before and you have the opportunity to buff and attack same turn, then they are falling prey to the same problem of lack of minions.
those two spells, paired with your minions in play, would direct the opponents choice, and heavily influence the next turn, potentially, of course.
the flavor of the priest is mind control, isn't it?
It hardly "forces" people to play a specific way - if anything, you WANT priests to be able to remove your early drops with their Shadow Words so that they can't use them on your stronger, later drops.
It hardly "forces" people to play a specific way.Which is why we don't currently have a meta surrounding strong 4 attack drops, right? That's why many legendaries don't have 4 attack? I want you to think, for just a moment, what would happen to the card pool if 4 attack cards were freed up. Then try to tell me that Priests aren't strongly influencing the meta, underpowered though they are at the moment.
