You will not survive till turn 5 to get ANY aoe in the game. Weak aoe cards like whirlwind won't do a thing, cuz of blood imps and buffing murlocs.
Since the blood imp isn't going to be used for attacking, I'm wondering how you are dying in essentially 4 turns?
a picture from someone else on that forums:http://i.imgur.com/tN3SVYF.jpg
so which magical AOE will help this pries on his turn 4?
lets assume the PRIEST can use FLAMESTRIKE! that costs _4_ mana on that turn, even then he is !@#$ed up :D And its not even possible.....
Best AOE you can get is conesceration on turn 4 which deals 2 dmg and uses all your mana and it would just kill the imp and the gnome.
Everybody suggesting AOE, should specify the name of that AOE spell, because after playing about 1k games, i am not sure what you guys mean with it.
Which AOE deals 5 damage to wipe that board, killing both the stealthed imp and every other buffed minion and lets you play something on board so that you will not get overrun next turn?
