Shadow Essence has been revealed. It is a 6 Mana Priest spell and is the eighty-seventh card revealed.

The final Priest card to be revealed was given to French streamer, Tars, to unveil.

When analysing this card, we have to bear in mind that Cairne Bloodhoof is our marker. The card seems to fit best with N'Zoth, the Corruptor, but other cards with permanent effects such as Radiant Elemental or Northshire Cleric will also need removing immediately. It seems as if this will need careful building around if it is to make a big impact.

For a full list of previously revealed cards, as well as all of the information about the new expansion, check out our Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion hub.

Another card on my list of "Try out". Could be big if you can hit the right minion. 

5/5 acolyte, the draw potential is beautiful

Yep. I'm also looking at Northshire ClericRadiant Elemental and Wild Pyromancer. Hell Doomsayer wouldn't be that bad of a pull as he would kill a minion or two as they trade into him. 

I'm waiting for some kind of OTK deck to pop up with this - summon a 5/5 charge, double HP buff, Inner Fire, nice.

I'm definitely going to try that out.  May need a Radiant Elemental in there to bring down the spell costs, and a silence or two to get rid of a pesky taunt minion.

I ended up having more success with the Velen/Malygos deck with this, but at least it was fun to try :p

My attempts didnt work out too well either, too difficult to pull the pieces together. But fun to mess around with, and gave me some other ideas.

Yeah, the struggle is that you cap out at 20 damage, whereas you can do far more by using the spell damage deck.

      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!
