No, it's not meant to be highly competitive. But it's not quite a joke deck.
And yes, it's based on Day9's idea.
Basic idea is to mimic Miracle Rogue's burst damage and card cycling. The burst comes from Northshire Knight, Divine, Divine, Inner fire, similar to Leeroy/Shadowstep/Shadowstep.
Right now it's in Alpha. the goal was just to make it so that the basic strategy can even happen: get enough card pull to force the combo, which Is tricky since Rogue normally has their spells to pull it off. As such I mimicked it by, right now, dumping nearly EVERY CARD DRAW MINION that's low cost. Beyond that, have removals to survive to the turn 9 you need to get there.
Holy Smite x2
Inner Fire x2
Power word: shield x2
Northshire Cleric x2
Divine Spirit x2
Loot Hoarder x2
Novice Engineer x2
coldlight Oracle x2
Gnomish INventor x2
Stormwind Knight x2
Holy Nova x2
Azure Drake x2
Again, it's alpha. however, it does work. You just need to get 10 damage done to the opponent. If double Knight or inner shows up then it's not a dead card: just use it to, say, change a 4 health minion to set up for PW, or get a threat to delay with.
I'm thinking of getting another HOly fire, but I'd have to craft it and not sure I want to really do that investment.
Mass Dispel is probably going to go, but not quite sure what to replace it with. First instinct is to combine it with shadowform as I benefit more from damage than healing myself.
So other than "OMG fail priest" any ideas either to improve it a bit or to add lol fun to it?
No to thoughtsteal/mind vision. Trying to remove RNG.
