Dare I say it? Another pretty decent anti-aggro tech choice for Priests.

Definitely looks like it could be a great choice for dealing with any aggro decks this xpac.

Ghoul seems good.  0 mana 3/3 agaisnt aggro is pretty good.  Also might see play in control shaman.  But playing this + the 2 mana life link priest spell seems pretty good.  The dreadlord looks kind of bad.  You can compare it to Dread Infernal, and it compares pretty unfavorably, 1 less mana for 3 less stats, so you need to get atleast 2 ticks with this for it to be around that power level, and it really doesn't see play.  There is something to say for the effect not hitting you or your board, but in a control deck that tends to matter less.  Seems really underwhelming.

Dread Infernal does damage to every minion, including your own.

IMO it isn't a bad card, especially for arena. Mage has a weaker counterpart with 2/2 stats for 3 mana and you see him played sometimes.

And that the Dreadlord deals damage every turn can be very nice too. End of the round is a drawback obviously.

Do not forget that Dread Infernal also deals damage to both heroes, which is often a strongly unwanted effect when playing a control card, as you want to stay at a high total health.

Even though it gives the opponent an opportunity to trade better and forcing you to possibly trade unfavourably into taunts, you have to bear in mind that the first AoE cannot be avoided by the opponent, making it more reliable.

Hmm...Happy Ghoul might also be quite useful as Warlock. With Earthen Ring Farseer for example: heal yourself up by 3 and putting two 3/3 bodies on the board...why not?

Also Iam a big fan of Dreadlord. 4/5 for 5 is decent enough and having half of a Maelstrom Portal attached to it? Sign me up! This is definitly an option for Zoolocks and Control-Warlocks.

Drafting the Mirror Image cards that are popping up might help with keeping him alive to clear, though. There seem to also be a fair few taunts available this expansion.

Watch for 2 more hours and you’ll receive another one! Twitch has updated how drops work on their end, and this is Hearthstone’s first time utilizing Twitch Drops since these changes were put into place. Here is what you need to know:
      You’ll now be able to see your watch time progress towards any given drop. You will no longer receive drop rewards automatically. You must instead claim the drop on the channel you’re watching or in the Drops Inventory menu on Twitch within the first 24 hours of earning it.  You will need to claim your first Twitch Drop reward BEFORE you can earn progress towards a second. Twitch users can now earn rewards before linking their Battle.net account to Twitch. Rewards will expire 7 days after they’ve been claimed if a Battle.net account has not been linked. After you’ve claimed a reward on Twitch, please make sure you’re logging into the region you’d like to receive the drop(s) on, as the first region you log into will be where we deliver your packs. It can take up to ~30 minutes to receive your reward(s) in game after claiming. You must link your Twitch and Battle.net accounts before you can receive a drop.
      Link Your Battle.net & Twitch Accounts
      You'll need to link your Twitch.tv and Battle.net accounts to receive Twitch Drops. Here's how:
      Log in or create an account on Twitch.tv. Navigate to the Settings menu by clicking your account name in the top-right corner of the home screen. Navigate to the Connections tab of the Settings menu. Find the Battle.net section, then follow the instructions after selecting a region and clicking Connect. When connecting accounts, be sure that you're currently logged into the Battle.net account on which you'd like to receive your rewards. More Just Around the Corner
      We’ve got expansions, seasonal events, Battlegrounds updates, a new game mode, and so much more planned. On the roadmap below, you can see the massive amount of content we have coming this year! Click to open in a new window.
