    Interesting take on the Bless gameplan. Buff a minion, send it face, then play this to wipe the board. Unfortunately you can't win that way, but hey, it's funny at least.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Silence Priest, never give up! One day, you'll be a real archetype!

    But honestly, this card is perfect against freeze.

    This is like Purify if Purify was actually good (on a related note, why no Purify in Core, Blizz?). Should be strong with 4 Mana 7/7. It could even do work with the Hermit, since that combo is fairly cheap and could come down early enough to answer the board. I mean, it could make Silence Priest at least an OK deck.

    I have spoken.

    I kinda like this. But i also always liked Silence Priest so i guess i want to see this work. Could be decent with the 1 Mana 4/4 or even the 4 Mana 7/7 etc. ... 

    I think this will work !

    So... maybe good with Selfish Shellfish? I have doubts this will see a lot of play but maybe a more midrange shadow priest could utilize it

    Obvious synergy with silence priest. But realistically this is more powerful in control/quest priest builds.

    In silence priest, not only do we have to assume our minion would stay alive, its also easily played around because there's simply very few targets to choose from. There's Selfish Shellfish, Helmet Hermit, and maybe Package Runner. Its main function is not swing, its to simply silence something so your deck can function, and for that it'll see play assuming silence priest is even worth running at all.

    In control however, this is more interesting because you can easily play minions off curve and clear board that way. You're not saving it up for the silence, and dont have to bother curving out, making the secondary clear effect more attractive.

    If nothing else, self silence is still a niche priest rarely ever get cards for, so for this reason it'll see competitive play.

    Seems good in a silence priest deck, or in Shadow priest as some kind of Fireball bursty way of doubling damage. This seems really good even outside of silence priest decks. Thank YOGG it doesn't work with Bless, because the damage comes AFTER the silence. This will see plenty of play i bet.

    Also i love it's flavor text! (For those wondering it's: "And in the darkest of depths, the sailor heard a command from inside his own mind? You will also buff my original card to 9 Mana.") 

    But i do want to take one quick moment to kinda complain about something that is... lacking in this set. N'zoth. Whispers of the Deep is the only N'zoth card in the set, despite N'zoth being the one that created the Naga race AND we saw Fish of N'Zoth in the expansion trailer. Also it's a shame N'Zoth, God of the Deep isn't in the core set. They kept Barrens Stablehand in the core set cuz barrens was the next expansion, but the creator of the Naga's AND "God of the deep" wasn't good enough for a underwater expansion? I really hope the mini-set will make up for this, otherwise that would be very dissapointing i.m.o.

    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.

    I still don't know of any minions Priest would actually want to silence, but at least this will still be good if you target a big minion, perhaps one with a battlecry that would've been used. Less great is that this won't hit face.

    The other half of Priest's 5 mana 7/7: deal 7 damage divided randomly to enemy minions.

    This is a very strange card. Will Silence Priest finally be an actual thing? I doubt it, but it would be a nice change!
