Very powerful, especially in combination with freeze or small taunt minions. Will I be able to use it in the turn that I get it or must I wait for one more turn?

Asking the real questions here... I can't seem to figure this out hehe :)

Considering the other "gain control" cards let you use the minion that same turn, I'm thinking this works the same way. See Shadow Madness or Potion of Madness

I'm going out on a limb and saying this is just a worse version of Mind Control and won't let you use it the same turn you get it.

Honestly? It's not that hot. Simple removal is almost always going to be better, this gives your opponent a turn to react in many possible ways. It's not nearly as good as Entomb was.

I think this card is a strong contender for the lyra style control priest.  They tend to run only a few minions and if you aren't getting ran over by aggro you can use this to steal one of their mid rangy minions at the cost of a little health.  I feel this, while not as university useful as entomb was, is still quite strong in decks that only run a few minions.  ON top of that it offers a very strong answer to Ysera, a card priests have a ton of trouble dealing with, as well as a lot of those pesky deathrattles like Savanah highmane.

It's one of those cards that isn't strong enough to include in your deck but would be nice to get from Lyra the Sunshard

Yep. Can't see myself putting it in a deck normally, but I'm sure it will save me at least once when Lyra drops it.

      The latest Hearthstone community contribution allows you to train the skills needed to master Combo Priest: quick thinking, fast mouse movements, strategic decisions and on-the-spot calculations. What's more to ask?!
      Combo or OTK or APM Priest is a reiteration of Combo and Vivid Nightmare Priest that was born with The Boomsday Project thanks to two cards: Topsy Turvy and Test Subject. Dog is credited as the creator and true master of the deck:
      Many have subsequently tried and failed to pilot the deck, which can require almost 100 moves during the 75 seconds of a single turn. Pro players like Trump and Thijs have hilariously failed, while others like Disguised Toast and Kolento kept trying until they got the hang of it.
      Right now, you might be dreading that you don't have the IQ to play this deck. Fear no more: everything can be practiced and Patashu has made the tool for it! Combo Priest Simulator allows you to practice the OTK combo on your browser, while also timing you. You can change the parameters of the starting gamestate, too.
      In all seriousness, the deck's winrate is below average and it's honestly too much trouble for too little gain. Then again, slamming your opponent's face for 100+ damage is quite satisfactory. It would be awesome if someone was brave enough to bring this deck at a tournament: it would be the casters' nightmare!
      Apart from Combo Priest Simulator, we have a guide for Topsy Turvy OTK Priest here on Icy Veins; the guide breaks down the necessary steps of the combo in a useful priority list. Alternatively, you can listen to Aleco trying to explain how the deck works to Patrick (and actually succeeding) in the latest Icy Veins Podcast!
