Rise from your grave!

Resurrect Priest (Also known as "Ramp Priest", "Big Priest" or "Summoner Priest") is a Priest deck type. It utilizes a spell-heavy deck with a small number of powerful minions with ongoing effects, with the intent of "cheating" out these minions earlier with cards like Shadow Essence and Eternal Servitude, and resurrecting them with cards like Eternal Servitude and Diamond Spellstone after being removed. The deck's goal is to outvalue the opponent with huge minions late game, with the intent to set up one-turn kills. In Wild, this deck gains access to Barnes, giving them access to resurrectable minions much earlier, as well as access to larger threats like Ragnaros and Y'Shaarj. In both formats, it generally relies more on playing a heavy control game using priest's multitude of removal spells.
