Thoughts on the Void Terror lock card?

Posts: 85
Wanna know your thoughts about it, i really like it. you have two strong cards that will die but you pop this in and you soak up their stats and put it into one big package.

sucks vs hex/polymorph etc tho

but you play this card late game and hopefully those cards are already been used by the enemy

I feel as though it's really bad unless it's combined with certain mechanics. Here are a few:

  • Ancient Watcher - Normally a terrible card by itself. But it can great demon food.
  • Power Overwhelming - Allows a weenie to kill an enemy minion and donate his stats to the Void Terror before normally expiring.
  • Sylvanas Windrunner - This legendary and other deathrattle cards allow for easy card advantage.

Only good in combination with Sylvana and Cairne, everything else will just be silenced and then it's a waste of a lot cards.

If you can do an EARLY pair up with Power Overwhelming it's very good, otherwise kinda meh. Power Overwhelming something cheap and expendable (Flame Imp, Succubus, etc.) and use it to either hit the hero hard or to take out an important target, then drop the Void Terror.

Unfortunately, this opportunity doesn't arise anywhere near as often as you would think it would. Reason being you have to :
1. Have some minions on the board
2. Have something that needs killing
3. Have something that needs killing and is worth spending Power Overwhelming and losing a minion on board
4. Have the Void Terror
5. Be on turn 4 or more

Then most likely it'll get killed by something, sheeped, hexed, shadow word deathed, executed...but at least it will soak up one of those cards.

It's basically another good example of how the HARD counters in this game need serious work. If you throw that down even just between a couple of Flame Imps and the enemy can't deal with it quickly, it's GG. If they can, you probably just gimped yourself and a now going to lose.

Sylvanas + Void terror is epic combo.
Cult master + killing weak minions with Void terror is very good combo too.

Think outside the box, there are a lot of useable combinations for this card. It's a late game option, I know, butif you have Void Terror + Shadowflame, it's not going to take big minions to to feed it to do some seriously heavy damage to all of theirs.

In this case, you used 4 cards for a board clear AOE. That is not an efficient combo.

You ask me, they should lift the cost for the card to 8, then give it charge.
Make it a finisher card.
(I may or may not be serious).

It's a fun card, but sadly inefficient.

Rampaging worgen + power overwhelming. Kill a minion, hit the hero, suck up the worgen. my Favorite combo

It is too easy to be silenced. I never use them!
maybe in the late game but I don't get to that point,

Shadow Madness your opponent's minion, Thoughtsteal their Void Terror (because you are playing a priest), and then Void Terror their minion. Done!

Not 4 cards at all, you can choose where you put it. What I like to do is if I need to use power overwhelming to take out a heavy 5-6 cost taunter is over power, kill the taunter, then use your void terror to eat the taunt killer. you get to keep your overpower spell and have a minion that they *must* deal with and burn a removal for, or take good damage

He should regurgitate the minions if he's silenced.

It's weak to silence and single-target removal, but it does serve as a way to protect your damage potential from AoE or weapons, as well of course as preserving Power Overwhelming and making pro-active use of Deathrattle as mentioned before.

I think it's fine in and of itself, but rather that it is too much of a specialist card that doesn't quite fit into the current meta well.
