And what happens if the minion can attack the same turn it was buffed?
Isn't it a bit unrealistic to expect everyone facing a Priest to make sure they never, ever, ever, ever have a minion on the field for more than one turn?
... And if it IS possible for most people to keep Priests from ever, ever having a minion set and ready to attack, doesn't that mean priests rely way too much on a "Do or Die" mechanic? The average Hearthstone match is supposed to be a back-and-forth between both players deploying minions, attacking, defending, etc. It's not supposed to be a game of "Stunlock the priest - OR YOU LOSE!"
Not to mention that you can use Power Word: Shield, 2xDivine Spirit, and Inner Fire on a minion with Charge. If your opponent does not have a Taunt card in the field, that's an instant win, pulled right out of a hat.
It's not the only Massive Nuke Out Of Nowhere priests have, either. You ALSO have to make sure you don't have too many cards in your hand. Otherwise, a Priest only needs six mana (Auchenai Soul Priest - Greater Heal) to go upside your head.
