General Comments

Twilight Acolyte has an extremely powerful effect as long as you have a Dragon card in your hand. The ability to reduce the Attack of a powerful opposing minion while developing a minion of your own with a high Health total should not be underestimated. Due to the Dragon condition, the range of archetypes in which the Acolyte works is pretty narrow, but within those archetypes it is a very strong card.


Constructed Play

In Constructed play, Twilight Acolyte is very powerful due to the fact that you can control how many Dragon cards are in your deck. For the Acolyte to activate consistently on Turn 3, there will need to be roughly seven Dragon cards in the deck. However, it is not always important that this is played on curve. It can be held back as a way to nullify a minion's power in the late-game, and as such can be played in Highlander Priest variants with very few dragons, as well as in the more obvious Dragon Priest.



In Arena, Twilight Acolyte is a poor card due to the Dragon restriction on its ability. However, if you have 6 or more Dragon cards, it is actually a very powerful card and you should change your evaluation accordingly should you get a Dragon-centric draft.
