King Togwaggle

King Togwaggle is a 8 Mana Cost Legendary Neutral Minion card from the Kobolds and Catacombs set!

Card Text

Battlecry: Swap decks with your opponent. Give them a Ransom spell to swap back.

Flavor Text

Management of the Kobold Empire requires a careful balance between a lack of social services and fiscal irresponsibility.

King Togwaggle Additional Information

Here’s the King’s Ransom spell card:

Possible King Togwaggle Combinations

The King’s Ransom card is added to your opponent’s hand, so it would be possible to fill your opponent’s hand with cards and burn King’s Ransom making it impossible for them to switch the deck back. Naturalize would be one of your best options for this because you could play it alongside Togwaggle.

This card could pair with Explore Un'Goro and make it so your opponent would either have to keep your deck or swap back to a deck filled with Discover cards.

    This card is broken

    double cold light oracle, double shadow step

    as a miracle rogue/mill when your opponent has a full hand play King Togg.

    POOF…no ransom and no deck

      Actually expiramented a lot with this and it works, especially against priest. It takes a lot of stall cards like doomsayers vanish and sap, and I like to include evasion as well. Some giant wasps to stall big cards etc. Been expiramenting with hemet jungle hunter as an alternate mill with limited success. Its really good if you bounce after with vanish cause you can drain them pretty hard.

    I don’t think this card is a total joke. I think it could work as a comeback card like Yogg. What if you are losing – you steal their deck. They play the ransom to get their deck back but they just wasted 5 mana. So it could just read “reduce 5 mana from your opponent’s next turn”. It’s like Loetheb except not just for spells. Am I wrong?

      Just like that, you win.

    With the druid weapon this can really destroy the enemies decks. have the weapon at 1 charge, use this guy, with ultimate infestation in hand. use the rest of the 5 mana if you can (if at 10 mana). proc the weapon. use ultimate infestation. draw some of the key cards from the opponent.

    imagine drawing antonidas from exodia mage, or shadow reaper anduin from razakus

    I have an idea, play a crazy draw fast tempo mage that runs either no spells but counterspell/manabind (you could avoid spells by playing minions only + mage weapon for draw) or one with more spells but still counter spells and manabinds (less safe), tempo your deck into fatigue as quickly as possible and then play your counterspell/manabind, after that turn then you can use King Togglewaggle to switch decks with them and your secret to prevent the switch back. you are left with cards while the opponent is left with no deck and no way to switch back.

    I was thinking about ways to counter the king’s ransom as not many people seem to be taking it into consideration in these posts.

He’s just not very good, I mean, you’d have to build a deck to suit him unlike the lich king or Dr.Boom, and even so your opponent can just pay five to give your deck right back!
    Pls make a better neutral legend…. please!

    Tbh this card sucks really much and not for the competitive reasons but as a meme card. There is no fun in letting your opponent pay 5 mana next turn to get their deck back and I really wished this card didnt allow that but it does because otherwise its too ‘broken’ but if they just balanced it more without that spell or just make the spell cost more mana, I would see great meme potential but this is just not as memery as people see it right now. Ofc I am going to experiment with the memes and hope to find something that works but for now I don’t see it and this meme is for now just a dream ๐Ÿ™

    I like the card design even though I think that a far better design would have been making it a 10 mana card 5/5 without the “give your opponent the card to swap back”. This way you can’t just build a shitty deck to make your opponent unable to do anything cause you have to survive till turn 10, but you still have the possibility to have some pretty funny games and combos/interactions.

    King’s ransom reminds me of Curse of Rafaam, but curse of rafaam had a niche job which is to proc an ice block. King’s ransom is totally useless.

    I presume my opponent plays king’s ransom right away. I simply get myself a 3 mana 5/5 body. Unfortunately 3mana 5/5 wouldnt matter on turn 9.

    Step 1) make a shitty deck (Probably druid for Naturalise)
    Step 2) fill your opponents hand with cards (Coldlight Oracle, Naturalise)
    Step 3) Play King Togwaggle and burn the King’s Ransom card due to overdraw
    Step 4) Enjoy your opponent’s deck while they’re stuck with your shitty deck

    And Just in case you can’t fill they’re hand play Cho to keep swapping decks if your’e going to meme you need to go all the way

    People are underestimating this card. I can see this in a mill deck. I can see rogue using this with self mill or even Hemet. You just need to get your opponent to 10 cards then play him. Rogue now has 3 bounce cards in standard.

    Could work with exodia also. You’d just have to stick Mana bind.

      That could work too well! If you take out the blade that makes you immune Mill Rogue has essentially no won condition. Add a lot of card draw and your opponent is nearly guaranteed to lose.

      The problem I see (as a Mill Rogue fanatic myself) is trying to get your opponent to 10 cards with only two mana. A Shadowstepped would probably be the best bet, with Sap being an alternative if your opponent I still dumb enough to only drop one card from ten. You canโ€™t prep-Vanish since thatโ€™s 3 mana, so itโ€™ll be a bit more difficult to pull off. Then again, Mill Rogue as a whole is pretty difficult to pull off in a non-control meta, so meh.

    Fun card to surprise your opponent but when you swap decks with your opponent you basically do nothing on that turn and when your hit the Turn End button you basically let your opponent draw 1 card from your deck (actually they could draw even more cards from your deck before playing King’s Ransom)

    Unless you play Discard Warlock and after completing the quest you play King Togwaggle and hero power to draw a card from their deck and your opponent hopefully draws a discard card from your deck on their next turn

        Random effects dominate the game if their average outcome is powerful enough.

        Doesnt have much to do with this card, but youre wrong about the meta being dominated by non randomness by default.
