Favorite and Least Favorite Cleric Subclass?

Content of the article: "Favorite and Least Favorite Cleric Subclass?"

Like all the rest. What is your favorite CLeric subclass? What is your least favorite Cleric Subclass? Why?

So Ranger, Paladin, Druid, Warlock, and Artificer are my top 5 favorite classes in 5E (yes, in that order.) After those, I get increasingly less passionate about the options presented. Of the remaining classes, I think Cleric is my next favorite.

There are so many domains. I'm gonna be hella basic here and say that my favorites are Life and Light. I know Clerics don't have to be played as healers…but I really like to play them as healers, so Life drew my attention from the start. Especially fun since they already automatically have most of the biggest healing spells in the game, so I get the fun of choosing other support/utility spells from my spell list without having to worry about it. Light is the other side of that coin. When I think of 'holy warrior', I think of healing and radiant nukes. Light fulfills the fantasy of being Micaiah from Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn and I just love it so much. I'm also a big fan of duality, so I love the cleric subclasses that are mirrors of the above two. Death as a counterpart to Life (although maybe that's Grave?) and Twilight as a counterpart to Light. I haven't had the opportunity to play those yet, so this is all purely theoretical. Also, just on principle, I like the Tempest Domain.

In terms of least favorites, I'll have to go with Trickery, Nature, and Arcana Domains. I know they're mechanically distinct and have their own mechanical identity that sets them apart, but I just cannot get it out of my head that they are just clerics cosplaying as Rogues, Druids, and Wizards (respectively.) And…if I wanted to do any of that, I'd just play a Rogue/Druid/Wizard. Again, empirically I know there's enough design space for them to all coexist…but I just personally don't like it.
