    Yeah this looks kinda weak. The plain copy is really awkward because against a buffed target you're essentially just paying extra for a silence, while against a big minion you need extra removal to take care of it.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Silence Priest hasn't worked better than a tier 2 in the past and I don't see this doing much more than that.  The only real potential it has is if the copies are not silenced and you can steal your opponent's minions

    Knock knock? Who's there?

    I said, "Who's there?"

    Oh, I see. It's Silence Priest.

    Could be a fun time, especially if you can dredge that Sunken half when you've got a primo-Big Boi to Silence and copy twice. We'll see.

    I have spoken.

    We've seen this card before. Its called Unsleeping Soul, and that card came out in an expansion focusing on silence priest. And that card still saw a total of zero plays.

    The sunken variant is good. But the base variant is so unbelievably slow that I cant see it happening. The only way it'll even have a shot at all is that team5 have printed some crazy 3 cost 7/7 minion that can't attack. But I doubt it.

    Outside of a hypothetical silence priest, I expect this card to simply not exist anywhere else.

    Silence priest hasn't seen play in forever, and this alone wont be enough support. Silence priest has always needed card draw, which it does have now thanks to Handmaiden, but the other problem was that they never found their silence cards. Sure you can Dredge the other silence card out easely, but it's 4 mana while silence priest is generally a aggro deck.

    I don't see silence priest returning without more support and maybe a few core set cards. However i do think that if they keep supporting silence priest in future expansions the deck might have a tiny chance.... by the time this expansion rotates. 

    RNG is only fun as long as there is a 50/50 chance of getting something really good or trash level of bad. If RNG always results in something good, then it's not fun.

    What minions are there that Priest would like to silence? We haven't seen everything, and there is the Core set as well. This could also be support for future expansions.

    The harmonious silence surrounding the ritual was unceremoniously <i>BROKEN</i> when <i>HAROLD</i> began eating stale potato chips.

    Outright powercreep over Unsleeping Soul. Blizzard really want to push Silence Priest to be a thing? Might have to wait till the mini-set or next expansion for it to really shine I feel.

    Doesn't seem great. Not that it's necessarily a bad card, but I can't see what its purpose would be with the cards we currently have available.
