Hearthstone: Knights of the Frozen Throne to address OP Auchenai Soulpriest and Mistress of Pain Synergy

With Hearthstone’s next expansion, Knights of the Frozen Throne, Blizzard is introducing the new keyword “Lifesteal.” As the word suggests, it summarizes the previously existing card text “damage dealt by this also heals your hero.”

Two cards that currently have a “very interesting relationship” in the current game are Auchenai Soulpriest and Mistress of Pain. As Blizzard puts it, “Their current interaction results in a continuous loop of healing and damage that results in a rather grisley end to the current game.” And that’s putting it kindly.

Good news, Knights of the Frozen Throne will address this, as it will change the interaction between Auchenai Soulpriest and all minions with Lifesteal so that the Auchenai Soulpriest ability will only trigger once.
