The latest spell in Kobolds and Catacombs offers a new way to clear the board.

Priest is at its best with strong removal options and strong finishers that consistently put the game away late. Shadowreaper Anduin has proven so far to be just the finisher the class needed, and now the class may have yet another tool to ensure it reaches the undead hero.

For seven mana, Psychic Scream clears the entire board. Instead of destroying minions, however, it shuffles them into the opposing deck. While the opposing player may get to reuse important Battlecry triggers from their own minions, they may also have to draw through your own, diluting the power of their deck. Psychic Scream may provide the late game pivot for Priest to cast Shadowreaper Anduin and start ending the game.

Priest is already one of the strongest classes in the format, and this card may go a long way in keeping the class’ standing in the new meta.

Kobolds and Catacombs releases sometime this December.
