Acolyte of Agony Reveal: Knights of the Frozen Throne

Recommended Posts

A new common Priest minion has been revealed. Its name - though not entirely confirmed yet - is Acolyte of Agony.

Chinese site Panda.TV has uncovered the latest card of the upcoming expansion:

It's difficult to see this card fit into any of the current Priest decks. Priests have a better minion with 3 mana in Kabal Talonpriest. And even the vanilla Earthen Ring Farseer looks better, since its healing is targeted. As far as Arena is concerned, Acolyte of Agony still makes for a mediocre option.

We have yet to see the Priest Death Knight and its new hero power. Perhaps Lifesteal might be important along with DK Anduin, who judging from his artwork seems to have embraced his dark side. Remember that you can't kill yourself with this card and Auchenai Soulpriest, since the interaction between Lifesteal and Auchenai Soulpriest will change.

The card reveals have slowed down significantly the past couple of days and more than 50 cards still haven't been revealed. People are speculating that perhaps August 18 - and not August 10 - might be the release date of the new expansion.

At any case, keep yourselves updated on Knights of the Frozen Throne and all the card reveals by checking out our dedicated KoFT hub.

This card is better than people give it credit for. Far Seer is a fine card, and this can only be better. Buffing this with just pw:s would be naughty vs aggro decks.

Except it isn't.  Farseer can heal minions, and can't die to a frost bolt/lightning bolt, or any number of other burns denying you a life saving heal.

To add to what VaraTreledees said, it can save you from lethal when you need it, while Acolyte of Agony must be played beforehand.

I like it. Might see one in a normal deck but mostly will see this in arena and there it will be a fine card indeed. :)

Hadn't thought of that tbh. Means it is also incredibly easy to "read" before using your big burst, since you know when the heal is coming. Also susceptible to any kind of freeze effect.
