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.
