Topsy Turvy Priest

Recommended Posts

Guest mep

Seems too many people focus on this specific combo, using Test Subject,etc. but really there are many powerful decks for Priest using Topsy Turvy and Divine Spirit. And many other varieties aren't as fragile as the Test Subject version. Yes, Test Subject gives you the maximum potential for OHKO, but there are lots of other good cards to play with TT and Priest, like Witchwood Grizzly, or any number of 4 and 5 cost cards that have 7 or 8 health. It's even interesting with Gurubashi Berserker as it gives you a lot of flexibility. Lucifron is another good option. Gives you a wipe and a card you can easily get up to at least 18 data very easily.

This strategy requires the minion to survive at least one turn, which is not a strategy you can really rely on. Even then, you would be better off with Inner Fire.

This deck is highly matchup-dependent, on top of having a high skill floor. Liberal use of resources to keep the board clear is one the most common mistakes I see, so focus on resource management and see if that brings you any improvement.

I am not seeing how this is much of an improvement over inner fire combo priest. 1 less mana needed at the cost of no health? I guess that is fine for OTK'ing, but this feels like it is putting all it's eggs in one basket to me.

At least with inner fire priest, if you don't manage to make a minion big enough, the health is so high the enemy may not be able to remove it before you hit him in the face again...

Commonly played Inner Fire priest variations require you to keep a minion alive for at least a turn, and it cannot deal with taunts that easily. On the other hand, as you say, if the combo fails, then Topsy Turvy priest do not have any other win condition, and they do not have any real proactive plays. There are reasons to play one over the other in both cases, so the choice should depend on the meta.
