Rise from your grave!

Resurrect Priest (Also known as "Big 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 Knights of the Frozen ThroneShadow Essence, and resurrecting them with cards like Knights of the Frozen ThroneEternal Servitude and Kobolds & CatacombsDiamond Spellstone after being removed. The deck's goal is to outvalue the opponent with huge minions late game or dominate and end the game early with Madness at the Darkmoon FairePalm Reading and Knights of the Frozen ThroneShadow Essence on turn 5. In Wild, this deck gains access to Rise of ShadowsArchmage Vargoth, giving them access to resurrectable minions much earlier, as well as access to larger threats like Madness at the Darkmoon FaireBlood of G'huun and Ashes of OutlandScrapyard Colossus.
