    Love the concept, but summoning a bunch of 1/1s is pretty weak, even with Lifesteal. Can you buff the board or give them rush? I don't think Priest has a way to do that.

    It gives you a full board if you want to Overheal them all. Maybe we can work with that?

    To me, this card is trash. But Ive stated before that you can never disrespect lifesteal, so Im forced to concede that it might actually see play.

    So you create a bunch of tokens on board, and your opponent scratches their head thinking what are you gonna do with these tokens. And there isnt really an answer, because priest has no wide board buffs so they can indeed just ignore the bugs and go directly to your face. The fact that this card costs 5 mana is added insult to injury, because it neither reliefs tempo nor does it add much to it.

    But again, the fact that it has lifesteal means unless there's an AoE you're gonna heal for 7 one way or another. So as usual its highly unlikely that your opponent can afford to disrespect the board. That said, this card is unlikely to win you games and will be a good card straight out of discovers rather than inclusion.

    I'm curious if you don't have enough board space to fit everything from the bottle, do you just lose the rest, or do they go back into the bottle for you to reuse later (and spend another Mana on)?

    Guess any excess from the Bottle will be wasted then.
