Alliance Dwarf Priest
Health 26
X, Flip Boris Brightbeard: Boris heals X damage from target hero or ally.
Use only on your turn.

Priests have a mix of abilities for both dealing and healing damage. They
can do decent Burn, but they rely on Allies more than say, a mage. They've
got a good toolbox of abilities, from destroying abilities to bouncing
allies...with Psychic Scream, use the fact you have to bounce your own to
your benefit...who cares if you had to return allies to your hand if you
returned, say, Parvink?

Boris' ability is exceptionally flexable. heal as much as you can pay for
from whatever you want. Just not on your opponent's turn. His Talent,
Spiritual Healing, lets him get in healing on things even when he's using
other spells, encouraging you to use Holy spells over Shadow. Both Chastise
and Smite deal damage and are Holy, making them more cost efficient, though don't neglect the non-holy abilities...especially since you're never
guranteed to draw anything.

Constructed: 3.5/5
As much as I like Boris, Priests don't do anything but heal WELL. If you
want to do a 'face melting' priest deck, you're better off with Omedus,
leaving Boris as one of the Heroes I might recomend trying to build a Magni
and Ironforge Dwarves deck around.

Sealed: 4/5
Inversely, little need to combo and liking Allies makes him do better in sealed. Heal whatever you want with his ability, whee.

Draft: 3/5
He can make good use of the allies he's got, but everyone wants the best allies in Draft...
