How to get[edit | edit source]
|Golden Immortal Prelate||1600||400|
Notes[edit | edit source]
- If an Immortal Prelate is destroyed and then resummoned on the board (such as through use of Desperate Stand or Carnivorous Cube), the resurrected copies will not keep their previous enchantments. Rather, the Immortal Prelate that is shuffled into the player's deck is the only copy that keeps its enchantments.
- Enchantments are only kept if Immortal Prelate has died; if it is returned to hand through effects such as Sap, or transformed by effects such as Polymorph, the enchantments are lost.
- PENDING FOR TEST: Deathaxe Punisher will buff Immortal Prelate when she obtains Lifesteal.
- If she obtains Reborn, the second one will not keep her buffs, but will work as a normal Immortal Prelate.
Fixed bugs[edit | edit source]
- A bug (as of 12-12-2018) allowed you to benefit from Spell Damage buffs cast on Immortal Prelate (such as Ancient Mage or Tuskarr Fisherman), even when she was in your deck. This bug was fixed in a later hotfix update.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Immortal Prelate is a power curve card. She has a great late game potential, but can be a serious threat even in early stages. Her Deathrattle can delay your fatigue as long as your opponent does not have any hard removal (Polymorph, Silences, "Return to Hand" and The Amazing Reno).
She can keep all kinds of buffs (Rush and Charge whenever is possible, Poisonous, Lifesteal, Stealth, Ressurections, Spell Damage, Taunt, Divine Shield, Hand Buffs and Reborn if it is possible). However, she will not keep cost readjusments. Bonus from Secrets (Never Surrender!, Avenge, Competitive Spirit) works too.
While not being stated, her effect does keep negative effects like Shrink Ray and any other stats readjustment effects.
Since she will always return to your deck, force draws and Recruit are the best options to use along her. The more the better, and, as long as the game keeps going, she will become stronger and harder to dispose. Along with Recruit, you can use Duel! for a force summon. For force draws, consider using Call to Adventure.
You can create several copies of her by using just one Desperate Stand. As mentioned before, she keeps the summoning Deathrattle, adding more Prelates as long as you have the buffed one. A similar effect occurs when combined with Gift of Luminance. Divine Shields will be kept.
Despite her slow initiation, Immortal Prelate is a serious threat that can fit in several kinds of decks. Her effect has a wide variety of very cool interactions. Prelates are very independant cards, that can provide everything (from Lifesteal to infinite buffs), below here will be a list of strong buffs and special interactions that fits specially well with her Deathrattle:
- Rafaam's Lantern of Power is the strongest buff in the game. Even being a late game card, the +10/+10 buff is absurd for a immortal card.
- Libram of Wisdom becomes an infinite buff while used along her. She keeps the buff and the Deathrattle. Offering more and more buffs.
- Shield of Honor works really well. She will keep the Divine Shield and the +3 Damage.
- Adaptation provides early flexibility and useful buffs. Everything works good.
- Sword of Justice gradually buffs her. Every summoning will be stronger than the last one.
- Coghammer instantly transforms her into a very good tank.
- Blessing of Authority is mandatory for a Prelate deck.
- Don Han'Cho is a no risk +5/+5 buff.
- Dinosize is not really a buff, but is really powerful.
- Lightforged Blessing, as a Twinspell, gives you two strong minions with Lifesteal
- Val'anyr gives an absurd amount of potential. This combo provides an insanely strong buff cycle.
- Bonemare is a taunt/+5/+5 buff that works really good, speacilly with more than one Prelate.
- Pharaoh's Blessing is extremely powerful, providing infinite Divine Shield and Taunt.
- Blessing of Wisdom gives you the infinite drawing effect. She keeps the buff, and will always gives you more cards to play. And since she too can delay the fatigue, this way gives you a really strong field/deck/hand combination.
Quotes[edit | edit source]
- Loa, hear my call!
- Forgive me.
Lore[edit | edit source]
Prelate is a title used for paladin-like warriors among the Zandalari trolls, with the prelates of the devilsaur loa Rezan being the highest order of holy warriors to serve any loa in Zandalari society. Much like overall the association between paladins and Shirvallah, prelates sworn to Shirvallah are unique to Hearthstone.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- During playtesting, some members of Team 5 would jokingly internally refer to Immortal Prelate as "Pre-latte".
- Immortal Prelate's flavor text is reference to the "He protec but he also attac" internet meme.
