Strategy[edit | edit source]

Archbishop Benedictus is a slow Legendary minion that can seriously tip the game in the Priest's favor in the right matchup. In most situations, the card's effect will be insignificant, however in some games, especially against long-game control decks or fatigue style decks, its effect can almost guarantee a victory if the game reaches fatigue. Combined with effects such as Amara, Warden of Hope or Reno Jackson, immense amounts of time can be added to the game in favor of the Priest.

If played before you get the cards you need drawn from your deck, it makes it harder to draw certain cards from your deck. For example Reno Jackson or Kazakus since you now have more cards in your deck which reduces the chance to get them. If you want to play it, try to wait out until you have the cards you need.

In Arena, however, its poor stats cause it to ultimately be a poor card, especially since Arena games very rarely reach fatigue.

As such, he was a high-ranking lieutenant of Deathwing and the Old Gods, and aided them in their efforts to destroy all life on Azeroth. He was slain at Wyrmrest Temple while attempting to waylay the orc shaman Thrall and his allies.
