Card Mania! #4 – Void Terror

CM004 - Void Terror SmallLooking to, or already playing a Warlock class deck? We will be featuring the Void Terror, a Warlock-only card in this week’s ‘Card Mania!’

A 3/3 minion with 3 cost, it looks like an average card. Its ability, though, allows for endless possibilities!

Lore

Void Terror seems to be a more powerful Voidwalker, a shadowy demon from the Twisting Nether.

Stats

  • Type: Minion
  • Rarity: Rare
  • Class: Warlock
  • Crafting Cost: 100/800 (Golden) Arcane Dust
  • Disenchant: 20/100 (Golden) Arcane Dust

Strategy

Do not think lightly of this card’s ability. While you are sacrificing your own minions, it transfers the stats over to the Void Terror, basically making it become a super-minion with stats the sum of the sacrifices and its own. The major benefit of doing so is to reduce the impact of ‘sweep’ spells; spells that deal damage to multiple minions such as Arcane Explosion or Consecration.

To highlight the ability, minion buff cards such as Power Overwhelming can be used in conjunction with the Void Terror to achieve, perhaps what even the Gurubashi Berserker could not! Apply Power Overwhelming on the minion that is to be sacrificed before summoning the Void Terror next to it. Voila; a Void Terror with a stats spike. Isn’t that amazing?

There are naturally setbacks to this of course. Firstly, if the opponent is holding onto a single-target disable card, such as Shadow Word: Death, he would be more than happy to use it on your Void-zilla! Whats worse; if it was a Mind Control card? YOURBASEAREBELONGTOUS!

Synergy

Since it generally reduces the number of allied minions on the board, it synergies poorly with cards that build on minion count such as the Frostwolf Warlord. It works well, though, with cards that buff minions, like Power Overwhelming.

If you are playing a Warlock, will you put it in your deck? Let us know in the comments below on what you think of the Void Terror, and any cards that you will like us to highlight!
