Has Hearthstone Mean Streets of Gadgetzan officially resurrected the Priest class? The perennial bottom feeder of the metagame has a lot of buzz around it these days, thanks to some exciting new cards introduced in the upcoming set.
Has Hearthstone Mean Streets Of Gadgetzan Fixed Priest?
From Raza the Unchained to Dragonfire Potion, Anduin definitely has a lot of new weapons in his arsenal. But could this latest reveal be the card that officially cements the class? place as a force at the top of the ladder?
One of the class? main drawbacks throughout previous expansions was its lack of any impactful turn-2 play. Priest?s best class-exclusive two drop minions, Museum Curator and Wyrmrest Agent, pale in comparison to those from other classes because they don?t impact the board right away. Then of course, we have the Priest hero power, which is often a dead action on turn 2.
Enter Mana Geode, Hearthstone Mean Streets of Gadgetzan?s attempt at correcting the mistakes of previous sets. With 2/3 stats, it falls in line with other 5 stat point minions at the 2-slot. Its effect, which could potentially spawn you an army of 2/2 minions, definitely has high value.
Mana Geode?s 3 health means it can easily be removed before you get to heal it up. But given the lack of options the class has, this card should definitely be a popular play on turn-2. The obvious synergy is to follow Mana Geode with the new?Kabal Talonpriest on turn 3, potentially giving you a hard time to remove 2/6 that spews out 2/2 tokens.
Does this card excite you? Will this be Priest?s bread and butter play once Hearthstone Mean Streets of Gadgetzan hits? We?ll have to wait and see. For more Hearthstone news and updates, keep it right here on The BitBag.
