    Zailen Scholar



    Zailen Scholar - 1cc Priest Ally - 1arcane/2HP - Templar
    When Zailen Scholar is targeted by an ability on your turn, 1 of your resources is renewed. When you end your turn while Zailen Scholar has an attachment, draw a card.

    Wow, pretty cool. Hook it up with a Strength of Conviction or Spirit of Devotion (basically free with its effect) in order to get some great early draw, and late game really solid draw when you have board control.

    Nice card indeed.
    I believe the last full stop is missing from the description, though.

    Thinking about this card, have a feeling it will be heavily nerfed before release, or very quickly afterward.

    Think of this combo:

    T1:
    Summon Zailen Scholar

    T2:
    Play Arada Jewels (effectively costs 1, makes Scholar 2/3).
    Play Spirit of Devotion (effectively costs 0, adds +1 HP, 2 card draw if ally is killed, AJ gives another +1/+1, Scholar now 3/5).
    Play Strength of Conviction (effectively costs 0, gives +2 ATK itself, plus another +1/+1 from AJ, Scholar now 6/6).
    Play For Unaxio! (also costs 0, gives another +1 ATK, and another +1/+1 from AJ, Scholar now at 8/7).
    For Unaxio! returns to hand.

    T3:
    Play For Unaxio! (free again, back to 8/7).
    Play Assumed Command (for 2 cost, gives +1 HP and Steadfast, plus another +1/+1 from AJ, Scholar now 9/9).

    Somewhere in there you could throw down Tome of Blessings for some damage reduction as well.

    Bit ridiculous is it not? Of course this would be on a perfect hand, but in a deck built for it, getting any good combination of these cards would still result in an insanely strong ally at T2. Better hope you're a Warrior that can use Crippling Blow, or you can Retreat! it before the Assumed Command gets down.

    realistically, scholar t1 then devotion + scriptures on t2 sets up a priest templar deck with some nice early draw - rng permitting.

    ^ Yes, is very much eggs in one basket, point is it could be done, and even if you don't have exactly those cards, any combination would allow for a much stronger 1cc ally than I think is a good idea.

    Guess the good thing is that at least this is a Priest ally not Mage. Can you imagine rush Mages having this? lol

    this guy already seems op, given you can use 3 different attachments in t2 for free and then cast chalice/divine connection and draw a card at the end of the turn. or you can cast soc and mystic and do 6 dmg in t2 and cast another attachment on scholar to get draw.
    priests already have attachment discounts (divine connection and zailen crusader), with this combo they could cast th for free and alr for 1cc. I think this may lead to very fast attachment decks

    I milled fat Garth with rush Loest. Twice.
    I stalled Moonstaller with Rothem.
    I played Ter with monopoly cards and 4x toll bridge and managed to win a tournament.
    I cast Portal and Kris in one turn and lived to tell the tale.
