Strategy[edit | edit source]
Mind Blast is one of the only cards which can be used by priests to 'nuke' opponents. Mind Blast x2 can deal 10 damage for only 4 mana; improved with Spell Damage or in combination with other spells or minion attacks, a priest with the right cards can easily take a low-health opponent by surprise.
Easily the deadliest card that can combine with Mind Blast is Prophet Velen; with 9 mana you can drop Velen and use Mind Blast on the same turn to effectively Pyroblast the enemy hero while also adding a 7/7 to the board. Some priest decks are even built around one turn kills involving Velen, Mind Blast, Flash Heal, Embrace the Shadow, and Emperor Thaurissan.
Lore[edit | edit source]
Mind Blast is a core Shadow priest spell from World of Warcraft. It is a 1.5-sec cast spell that deals substantial direct Shadow damage to the target, and grants Insanity, a resource, required to enter Voidform. One of the Shadow priest's most powerful attacks, it also has a lengthy cooldown. In Classic WoW, the spell was available to all priests, and along with many other spells revolving around the enemy mind led players to term the playstyle 'face-melting'.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The artwork for this card comes from the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game "Fields of Honor" series, for the card Charkov.
