This Hearthstone combo is so deadly that it kills you and your opponent instantly.
Hearthstone‘s Auchenai Soulpriest is big trouble. Most Priest players know, this card swaps healing powers for damage, setting up a devastating Hearthstone combo if used correctly on the enemy. In the case of this week’s Tavern Brawl (The Battle of Tol Barad), this Hearthstone combo is particularly insidious.
Players who use a 9-cost card will get the spell Tree of Life, which returns both combatants to full health. Except, when the Tree of Life spell is combined with the Auchenai Soulpriest, it instantly kills everyone.

Now, for some reason, killing yourself to defeat your opponent results in a loss? That doesn’t seem right. If anything, a win is still a win even if you die in the process. That’s my view of the matter anyway. Shame that Blizzard doesn’t see it my way.
As this video gets more plays and shares, I’m sure we can expect a nerfing of this Hearthstone combo. Too bad because it’s the ultimate troll.
Just remember, until further notice, Auchenai Soulpriest and the Tree of Life are must-have cards when assembling the best Hearthstone deck. You should always have the option of killing yourself to take out your opponent. You die on your own terms and you impede your opponent from gaining any rank. Call it dishonourable if you must, but I prefer to think of it as “by any means necessary.”
