Getting tired of my cards being used against me by priests
Of coarse, saying I'm getting tired of it is like saying having your arm taken off with a rusty spoon stings.
The number of cards priests have that either take control of your cards or copies them from your hand/deck is ridiculous.
Priests are using every single one of their cards that do these and it's just beyond moronic.
Take a recent match of mine as an example.
Mind Vision into a True Silver Champion
Shadow Madness on a Loot Horder, swung it into one of my minions, killing them both and drawing him a card
Thought Steal into Gaurdian of Kings and Sword of Justice
Cabal Shadow Priest a Leper Gnome
Thought Steal into a Tirion Fordring and Sunwalker
Mind control Tirion Fordring
I can deal with the stupid Cleric, all the healing, all the buffing and all the instant kills they have but this constant bs of using your cards against you is getting out of hand.
Thought Steal is the worst by far because it increases their deck size by 1 per use without effecting their card draw and it stands a good chance of getting them class specific cards. As a stand alone card it is the most broken card in the game.
Yeah I know how you feel I get what I know to be unreasonable irritation or anger every time a priest pulls cards from my deck..
"Go use your own minions you frickin thief!".. though change some letters there. Priests in Hearthstone are just a bunch of criminals and mind rapists.
I'm getting sick and tired of getting:
Fireballed/pyroblasted to the face.
Double rockbiter + windfury.
Divine sheild trades.
Double innervate+coin turn one.
Murloc or Giant @###%@!%
And you're worried about priest? And what they are clearly designed to do?
So according to you a 6 mana 4/5 that takes control of a 2 or less attack minion is overpowered.
If you think those cards are great. Go build a priest deck put all the control cards in (as you claim priests do) and go ahead and play it. You will get the crap kicked out of you, and then you can come back to the forums to demand nerfs for every class that beats you (which will be all of them)

Idk about you man, but I'd much rather have ANY of those you listed happen to me(other than Murlocs, these need to BURN). Priests stealing is just... immorally wrong, which I don't care for, but the fact that Priests has to steal to win? Ridiculous. I don't know what it is, but there's something about priests stealing your cards and using it against you. It's upsetting. That combined with their annoying SW's, ughh.
I know your pain, I honestly think they should buff priests, make them rank-worthy so many people can play it, I don't mind that. But like do something about Mind Control. Like many suggested 8 mana, is a buff, can be silenced and returned to original owner, but it's silenced of course, so no more effects.
MC is possibly the reason I hate every priest, most of the time, sure I play around it, like others. But if they get you to that corner.... and you gotta summon that big guy, welp, no coming back, cause MC will save the day.
It's not "I think" it's "I know from experience"
Was working my way to rank 5 in ranked mode and got taken down to 7 mostly from priests stealing !@#$. These priests working with these decks are getting in the high end ranks so it's obviously working.
I refuse to build decks like Unleash the Huntard, Giant or Mulorc Warlock, Priest or to the face warrior because these decks just piss people off. While although I'm here to win I'm here to do it without a jackass deck.
Fireballed/pyroblasted to the face
Have yet to see the first happen
Have yet to see the second come even close to winning
DS trades are annoying but manageable
Innervate is broken but not as bad as stealing imo
Sapped? More concerned about shadowstep
Unleash the huntard is indeed broken
Murlocs and giants don't win that often against me
Yup, SS. It was a typo.
Grom combo is how warriors win games now, so yeah it happens all the time.
But the point is, all of these combos/functions are way more terriffying than anything a priest can bring to the table.
Priests are one of the bottom 3 classes right now.
Most of the cards you mentioned are too situational/random. It's pretty awesome Thoughtstealing Deadly Poison or Shield Slam. Cabal Shadow Priest ends up worthless against Druid decks, there's nothing to steal, same with Shadow Madness.
I personally like it when a priest uses his janky copy/steal cards against me. even more so when its my pimped out paladin control deck and I have to be terrified of what he got since mathematically it was probably a rare/epic/legendary!! OP just needs to check his pride at the door....
there will always be decks that are top of the meta, that's the way it works.. sure you can let some super inflated imaginary ego stop you from using those, but you have zero right to complain when you lose to them! I too go jank with all my classes and decks (except paladin control, that will have some similarities to a lot of the other pally control decks out there). Especially with a small card pool. if you don't like it you should probably take a break for a while. Let the meta shift or an exapansion hit.
Like Starving Buzzard, Poison Blade, Unbound Elemental... there are so many cards that are pointless for priests. Also 90% of the time you get standard crap like Harvest Golems.
If you think Priests are so good, I invite you to try them. Most of the cards you mention are in the basic set anyway. You wil see it is not THAT good.
