Mind Blast is a priest spell card, from the Basic set.

How to get[edit | edit source]

Two copies of Mind Blast are automatically included in all players' collections upon unlocking the priest class.

Two Golden copies of Mind Blast are a reward for raising a priest to levels 15 and 20.

Mind Blast is uncraftable and cannot be crafted or disenchanted.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

While Mind Blast may seem cheap for such a large amount of damage, remember that it is locked to the enemy hero, and unlike Holy Smite cannot be used to affect any other target.

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. Mind Blast is the core of one turn kill combo decks involving Velen, using many varying setups such as Flash Heal, Embrace the Shadow and Emperor Thaurissan or Lesser Diamond Spellstone, Radiant Elemental, and Vivid Nightmare.

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'.
