With the start of the Year of the Phoenix, Divine Spirit has rotated to wild, making Coombo Priest a wild-exclusive archetype. For more information, see Game format.

Combo Priest is a Priest deck type with a focus around its Divine Spirit card to create a hugely buffed minion, followed up by a card like Inner Fire to convert it into massive burst damage. Despite the name, it's often not a slow OTK setup-based control deck, but plays more like a tempo or aggro deck that turns its board advantage into lethal burst damage, and is one of the faster Priest decks overall.

Various forms of Combo Priest existed through Hearthstone's history, but it reached peak popularity in Saviors of Uldum with powerful synergy and tempo cards like High Priest Amet and Psychopomp.

Patch 17.0.0.44222 removed the Divine Spirit/Inner Fire combo from Standard format by moving Divine Spirit to the Wild-exclusive Hall of Fame set.
