Card Mania! #8 – Doomsayer

Sick and tired of those rush decks?

Today in ‘Card Mania!’, we will be featuring Doomsayer, a fiery master of chaos, who brings doom upon the battlefield!

Lore (From wowpedia.org)

The Doomsayers are humans located in Stormwind & Orgrimmar. They were recruited for the Twilight’s Hammer.

Well, basically they are part of an organisation that want to make the world burn.

Stats

  • Type: Minion
  • Rarity: Epic
  • Stats: 0/7
  • Ability: At the start of your turn, destroy ALL minions
  • Class: Any
  • Crafting Cost: 400/1600 (Golden) Arcane Dust
  • Disenchant: 100/400 (Golden) Arcane Dust

Strategy

When the opponent is swarming you with minions, summon Doomsayer and protect it until you reach your next turn!

One way to do so is to pair it with Taunt Minions, such as Mirror Image (if you are using a Mage) or Sen’jin Shieldmasta. Doomsayer will naturally become a high priority target for your opponent since he is risking his entire board control if he were to ignore it.

Therefore, Doomsayer has a “soft taunt” effect in that the opponent will CHOOSE to attack it regardless of the fact that direct damage could have been done to your own hero. Whether your Doomsayer lasts until the next turn, may not matter all too much, if all you need is to buy time!

Another common strategy is to Freeze all of your opponent minions before releasing the Doomsayer, and your opponent will just groan in agony as his board is cleared.

Synergy

That being said, a minion heavy deck does not work very well with this card since its ability affects your minions as well. Conversely, a deck that has minimal minions will suit the Doomsayer better.

Will you place a Doomsayer in your deck?  Let us know in the comments below.
