This Priest card eluded our radar yesterday, so we are doing a catch-up article on it.

The reveal was made by Lalala on Douyu.com.

This looks like a strong card, but definitely when played at a later stage in the game. It can fit into some of the currently popular Priest archetypes like Big Priest (imagine bringing back Obsidian Statue) and the N'Zoth variation of Highlander Priest. It's also possible to see it in a slightly altered version of Dragon Priest, with cards like Bone Drake and Deathwing, Dragonlord.

Moreover, Twilight's Call can mainly support Quest Priest, which has had an average performance in Standard. In Wild, Deathrattle Priest has been doing exceptionally, and let's not forget that N'Zoth, the Corruptor can bring back the 1/1s with their full stats. Perhaps we could see this card in a more aggro-ish version of Priest (if there ever is one) along with Devilsaur Egg, for instance, or in a sick combo with Mistress of Mixtures and Embrace Darkness. People are definitely going to experiment with this and we'll see if it will become a staple in any of the aforementioned Priest archetypes.

Twilight's Call joins the rest of the revealed cards in our Kobolds & Catacombs hub. As the release date approaches, don't forget to tune in for the final card reveal live stream on Monday!

If by average you mean T5 deck, then yes, definitely.

 

I'd call an average deck somewhere between T2-3. And Quest Priest was not one of those.

I agree more or less, I just didn't want to be too mean about it in a news article :p

      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!
