    Well we know from experience that rez priest is an annoying archetype. As for the minions getting resurrected though...I'd say they'd just be stats, kinda like playing The Scourge. You need a lot of undead to die and probably be reliant on your opponent clearing your board to help you setup this minion. I can only really think of Flesh Behemoth and Invincible as valuable undead to resurrect and those are pretty slow minions. 

    Most likely you'd want some specific deathrattle undead to die but I'm not really seeing many minions getting resurrected. On average I'd say maybe 2 - 3 coz the restriction is quite restrictive.

    Done properly this card will very well win you the game.

    Because there are undead cards like Shadowed Spirit, Volatile Skeleton and Brittleskin Zombie that'll do additional damage, while pressuring face at the same time. If you rez some of them out that's just free damage whether or not they're removed.

    But of course, if you're running loads of useless undead cards that do nothing then this card will similarly do the same. So its kinda hard to judge. But still, even if all it does is give you a board of useless stuff its still reload and that's something aggro priest have been lacking for years. So a nice little thumbs up from me.

    IF Priest can reliably flood their board then this could be an amazing refill. Outside of that it's still decent if you have a priority target to rez.

    5-mana is fairly cheap for an effect this powerful

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    I know right, how original! I don't think it would be nearly as annoying in Standard, if it wasn't from the return of all that resurrection's BS .. oh well!

    I don't think Priest is lacking in board clears. I imagine this would be good after playing Clean the Scene in a deck with mostly undead minions to bring them back. Though both cost 5, so not the best for curving, and I don't see any 4-Cost clears except Shadow Word: Ruin, and that isn't killing many undead.

    Not sure about this card, but i think it might see play in a bunch of priest decks. Shadow priest can use this as a reload after their board gets cleared, and maybe control priest decks include this in order to ress a big undead? Probably sees play, but won't be the best thing ever.

    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'm giving this guy a 5 star if only because I want Rager Priest to be an actual deck name.

    Doesn't seem insane, but might work great with the new Ragers. Time will tell, though!
