Description
The Auchenai know the end is coming, but they're not sure when.

Auchenai Soulpriest is a Priest class minion card. Its effect is that your cards and powers that restore Health now deal damage instead.

Strategy[edit]

The Auchenai Soulpriest's ability turns healing cards like Circle of Healing into strong board-clearing spells. For example, playing the Soulpriest on turn 4 with Circle of Healing deals 4 damage to the whole board, which can easily neutralize a board filled with low-cost aggressive minions. If there are any friendly minions on the board, the downside of also damaging your own minions can be avoided by trading them out first. The Soulpriest turns the Priest's hero power Lesser Heal into a stronger version of the Mage's Fireblast for the same mana cost. When facing Paladins or Druids, healing spells such as Holy Light and Healing Touch also become very efficient damage spells, if they have been copied into the Priest's hand with Thoughtsteal or Mind Vision.

On the other hand, Holy Fire and Holy Nova don't work well with this card since they will damage friendly characters.

Lore[edit]

The Auchenai were the original guardians of the draenei grave-city of Auchindoun in Terokkar Forest. They were called "death priests". The Auchenai have been in charge of taking care of the monumental necropolis for not more than 200 years. During the Orcish campaign against their kin, the Auchenai seemingly retreated to their grave-city. Years later, the priest Nemuraan helped the Alliance Expedition to rescue Kurdran Wildhammer from the hands of the Horde.

Sadly, the Void energies emanating from D'ore turned mad this priory. No longer believing that the dead should be left alone to rest, the Auchenai leader Exarch Maladaar started to experiment with necromancy. He even allied with the eredar Levixus, helping him to bind souls to his will.

Even before their fall into madness, the "death priests" were able to see the dead after drinking a potion during a rite of initiation. They were able to summon their fallen kin using the Light, but this was later replaced by enslaving the soul with necromancy. They seem to have abandoned the Light in favor of the Void. [1]
