While the first Dragon-related cards were released in Blackrock Mountain, including the priest-specific Twilight Whelp, it was the release of The Grand Tournament which caused Dragon Priest to explode in popularity, as Wyrmrest Agent and Twilight Guardian filled in gaps in the curve. The deck slowly declined in popularity with later expansions until Mean Streets of Gadgetzan, when Dragon Priest experienced a sudden revival with the release of the powerful Drakonid Operative. This new card, along with Netherspite Historian in the previous One Night in Karazhan adventure, made Dragon Priest one of the most dominant decks in the Gadgetzan meta. Dragon Priest made a return in the Year of the Mammoth meta after Kobolds and Catacombs added new Dragon synergy cards.
These are some of the core cards currently seen in Dragon Priest.
