    So Cabal Shadow Priest and Convincing Infiltrator have a baby now, good for them!

    The RND will be questionable on things.  the Cabal Shadow Priest still often gets utilized and I can see in priest mirror matches this being a great tech card to disrupt rez potential for things like Convincing Infiltrator, but will be really situational.

    If you played on turn 5 this card and a 1 cost spell, maybe minions of 2 attack will not exist anymore.

    Thought for a second there was Kabal acolyte, then I read a remembered well, sigh

    Fun card, and flavorful. Much less likely to get value than some of the other Spellburst cards, but could be swingy if it does. One fun thing is that it can target the enemy's copy of itself (in a mirror match or from a Mirror Entity), which could be fun or tilting.

    A weird card. But very flavourful. Also it can still another Cabal Acolyte from opponent.

    I doubt anyone will actually run it in their deck, but the ability to randomly get it from invoke is cool
