Devour Mind is a new Priest Card that costs 5 Mana and allows you to copy 3 cards in your opponent's deck and add them to your hand. Glacial Mysteries is a Mage Card that makes you put one of each Secret from your deck into the battlefield.

...it feels like Glacial Mysteries is paying a "glyph tax"...that's way too expensive and arrives way too late.

I agree, seems way too slow. Even at 6 mana from Glyph this seems too slow. I don't think the benefits outweigh the cost. I'd rather play Kirin Tor Mage for free secrets and a body on the board.

Well...at least Glacial Mysteries gets rid of all the bad secrets in your deck...but on the other hand you are maybe better of not putting them in your deck in the first place.

Mysterious Challenger this ain't.

I hope there are no broken mage secret incoming, with current set of secrets I can't see Glacial Mysteries  being viable even in wild with Duplicate

There are some interesting applications of glacial mysteries in wild with exactly Duplicate + Mirror Entity + Effigy, however I feel you have to water down your deck too much to make it truely viable, it is still something to consider.

 

Devour mind seems bad.  Like really bad, like why would you ever play this card bad.  2 mana for an extra card on thoughtsteal just ins't worth it, and that card only really sees fringe play.

+1 on devour, but I just can't see Glacial appearing at all. Even in Wild - it's just so unbelievably easy to make it so incredibly bad, especially considering you have 8 turns to draw the secrets and make it even worse.

I don't think glacial will be competitive either, but anything that gives you upward of a 7 mana discount and draws you upward of 5 cards is worth some experimentation.

Of course and I'm sure people will experiment with it - I just can see myself drawing all my secrets and playing an 8-mana Mirror Entity or something.

      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!
