    Thank the fucking gods Bloodweaver and Palm reading is gone...but we did get Radiant Elemental back so who knows, something cringe is gonna happen with this abomination, I can just feel it.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Ah, there it is. The payoff for spell vomit Radiant Elemental Handmaiden Lyra Valishj degenerate Priest decks. The very large minion that they can play after playing a bunch of spells, drawing with Handmaiden, getting more mana with Valishj and playing more spells. What are the odds Priest can make a big one turn 5 or earlier? Good? Pretty good?

    I have spoken.

    Well with Lyra and the other Elemental this could get out of hand pretty fast. Also with the new 0 Cost Mana and for example the coin you could play this turn 1 with +2/+2 ...

    Well this naga will be good in a miracle deck that utilizes Radiant Elemental and Lyra the Sunshard and at such a low cost of 2 mana it should slot in as a random minion with big stats.

    If Ive got to be honest, its not very good.

    A theorectical lyra deck, probably control, would never hold the trigger just to build up a big minion to go along with your Lyra the Sunshard turn. At its very best you can go turn 7 into an incredible lyra turn followed by Priestess Valishj and create a couple of monsters. But since your monsters have no taunt and cant rush, what is all this in aid of? Not to mention that its a turn 7 play, where most tempo decks will more or less destroy you way before then.

    The best thing this card has got is in shadow priest where a coin into this becomes a good spidertank on 2, which can easily be good enough to win the game outright. Or its played solely because its a naga and priest may actually need those.

    In any case, it has potential but priest never really need stuff like these.

    Lyra the Sunshard + Radiant Elemental chain into Priestess Valishj + Queensguard seems really strong. This has quite a bit of potential, and if priest gets any other kind of mana cheat in mini sets or future expansions Queensguard will become very powerfull.

    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.

    While it's fun to imagine getting this guy big in the end game I don't think that's his strength.

    This with the coin is just a strong early play. The new 0 mana spell too can help when off coin. This is a strong early body to stick around for buffs or to trigger "if you played a naga" spells.

    This looks like it will be a good payoff in a Miracle Priest deck.

    The Naga/Spell synergy could be an interesting add to Priest playstyle.
    Kinda looking forward to try it out

    At least it's only a battlecry, I do not want to see the damage this could've done if it was a Questing Adventurer effect instead.
