Da Undatakah Additional Information

Da Undatakah Card Review

Unlike N'Zoth, The Corruptor, Undatakah seems to be a bit too inconsistent and easy to counter to build an entire deck around it. However, I can’t imagine a world in which he won’t be a mainstay in Deathrattle-heavy Midrange or Control decks until the 2020 rotation, because his effect is absolutely powerful. If a Deathrattle deck already exists, or is close to being viable, Undatakah might push it in the right direction.

Of course, I could come up with dozens of overpowered combos with 3 specific Deathrattles, but it’s not even necessary. Just take a Deathrattle Hunter deck. Let’s say that by the time you’ve played Undatakah, two of your Devilsaur Eggs and a single Spider Bomb died. Now, this is an 8 mana 8/5 that Deathrattles into two 5/5’s and destroys a random opposing minion on death. There you go, it’s already quite insane and it’s the most basic scenario. And you know what’s the best thing about it? If you now Play Dead it, you get all three Deathrattles at once.

Deathrattle Rogue is also an almost viable deck, and this would be a huge play in that build. It runs both Devilsaur Eggs and Mechanical Whelps, and getting any of those Deathrattles is massive. Of course, the class also has ways to trigger the Deathrattles, which would create a massive board that your opponent has to remove. But wait! If he does remove it, Undatakah summons all of them again. So he first needs to single target remove it or Silence it and THEN AoE everything, which might not be an easy task at all.

And those are only the current decks that could use it efficiently. Any deck running a high density of Deathrattles in the next year and 4 months will probably at least test this card out, since there is pretty much no downside to it – you just replace a single big threat with it.

Card rating: 9/10

      Immortal Prelate’s text is
      Deathrattle: Shuffle this into your deck.

      notice the period. THEN
      It keeps any enchantments. The “it keeps any enchantments” is NOT part of the deathrattle effect.

    If it keeps the deathrattle effects like they are enchantments, then would silver vanguard and immortal prelate mean it just keeps recruiting itself from the deck when it dies?

    The card text is very specific. It says Deathrattle EFFECTS.

    In my thinking the effects are the “enchantments” that appear if you hover over a minion, eg. Cube’s payload.

    If this is the case, Da Undatakah does NOT gain the Deathrattles of 3 friendly minions that died this game. Da Undatakah would only have the “enchantments.” This is still a powerful effect, but not as broken as currently believed. It means it won’t be infinite with Immortal Prelate/Astral Tiger since those are Deathrattles.

    If this is the case, the implication is bigger. It means you don’t “trigger” Da Undatakah by killing it. All the effects activate on Battlecry. So Cube’s payload, Steeds, etc. would come out immediately when Da Undatakah is played.

      Actually, idk about the last part I wrote about things coming out immediately. You may still need to trigger Da Undatakah. I just feel like they wouldn’t have overlooked Astral Tiger + Immortal Prelate if it works like everyone things.

      Thought about it some more and guessing it goes like this.

      You gain Cube’s payload on Battlecry. But since Da Undatakah has no Deathrattle itself, you can’t “trigger” Da Undatakah with cards like Play Dead. Therefore, Da Undatakah actually has to die to unleash its “effects”.

        The cube has no Deathrattle effect, it only has a battle cry, cards like this don’t pull deathrattles that were created from battlecries, it should work with going infinite, since prelate says put this card into your deck with all its enchantments. Same with weasel tunneler like Danes video said. The effect isn’t an enchantment, it’s an effect that is on the base card itself, not something added later.

    This has to be the most broken card in the game. Like what previous comments/reviews said, Hadronox druid will be insane. You basically will not even need cube anymore, play with one astral tiger and you will have an infinite combo (unless silenced)
    For paladin you can just use Immortal Prelate and it is broken. If you want a good laugh you can even add Mechano-Egg.

    Even if this card gets silenced, you can add more copies of it into your deck with various cards, like Baleful Banker or Lab Recruiter.

    I honestly do not see how this card will be balanced

    Not sure Deathrattle Hunter wants this. Egg and spider bomb deathrattles are good on this guy; Kathrena and Cube deathrattles are not (you probably have no beasts left in your deck after Kathrena dies, and Cube deathrattle does literally nothing when this guy copies it).

    3/5

        I can read just fine. I don’t think the other combos I’ve read (Hadronox, Lab Recruiter, Astral Tiger, Immortal Prelate) are strong enough to justify the setup, or in the case of Hadronox, I’m not sure it’s better than Witching Hour + Cube.

        Maybe there is some combo I’m missing which makes this card very strong, but I haven’t seen anyone spell it out here.

          I’m putting it in a buff paladin deck with Mechano Egg and Immortal Prelate. Thing is, I’m not building the deck around it. I was already playing those cards, so I put Undatakah in there. Its a massive threat that if it goes unanswered will probably win the game. I think the card is excellent in a situation like that. It also gives buff paladin another solid win condition like Lynessa. And the opponent will not be able to answer both of them in most situations.

          My point is, I don’t think its a build around card. I think its more of a cherry on top card, that can push an evenly matched game into a win. You put it in a deck where it happens to work well already to further push your win condition.

      He can’t copy the cubes Deathrattle, since it is an enchantment added from a battle cry, not an effect. having 3 5/5s or even two or one is amazing, and being able to kill a minion is also insane, kathreeena is a low roll but it is worth the other two death rattles

        Nvm misread the cubes text disregard that first part, but still just one extra five five and the Deathrattle itself is super good, since you might still have activators for it, also with the mech based deck without Kathrena it would be even stronger since you get rid of a dead roll and add two very high rolls to its pool.

    the real question is how would this work if it had pyros and weasel tunnellers deathrattles?
    i know if u have an unearthed raptor with 2 weasel tunneller effects it will shuffle itself into ur opponents deck then ur deck. so if the undertaker triggered its weasel effect first it should try to trigger its pyros effect for ur opponent.so then would it try to add itself to ur opponents hand from their deck as a 6 mana 6/6, that would be pretty weird.
    Also if the pyros effect triggers first would it continue with the other deathrattles, I’m guessing it would be consistent with Tess rather than yogg and continue

      the 1/1 demon u mean is dreadsteed, which says:deathrattle summon a dreadsteed, so u would just get more dread steeds. with zerek I believe it would work like zerek normally does but would revive without the deathrattles so it wouldn’t go infinite.

      2 Astral Tigers with Hadronox. Save your other naturalize for Da Undertakah so then it shuffles 2 into your deck, allowing you to have a backup just in case of silence. I don’t know, but it seems like an interesting alternative to the typical Witching Hour Cube shenanigans.

      Tech cards doesn’t prevent strong cards from being oppressive and meta defining. Skulking geist wasn’t good enough to block kotft jade druid. Cube lock was the best deck in the game even if every deck had 2 silences and a weapon removal. And sometimes the decks are so strong that you just don’t play tech cards because you know that you’ll lose even if you tech against.

    My question is – how does it interact with Cube? If you’ve cubed something else, then play this – if it copies Cube’s Deathrattle. Will it remember what the cube copied? Or just waste that Deathrattle? I would have said no, but there are so many weird things with HS’s card ID system that confuse the shit out of me. Like how if you Azalina a Floop – it keeps copying minions your *opponent* plays. Idk – not sure what I’d rather, as if this thing becomes an either/or include VS Cube that would likely be more balanced. If it *does* mysteriously remember what the Cube ate then, yeaahh. Meta is gonna look weeiirrd come release.

      It’s a good question, I was wondering this too. The fact that it says “Copy the Deathrattle effects of Minions that died” gives me the vibe it WOULD copy what the Cube ate, similar to how Faceless Manipulator will copy the deathrattle. The Cube has the “deathrattle effect” of “When this dies, summon two ____” and so this gains the Deathrattle effect of “summon two ____”. Could be wrong, of course.

      The fact that they word it kinda weird and specific (“Deathrattle effects”, not just “Deathrattles”) strikes me. Makes me think it will interact with spells/minions that give Deathrattles as well, e.g. Big Bad Voodoo.

    Powerful card love the art and name, but I dont like that this has a near 5 star rating as though it outshines everything else this set. Immediately compared to N’zoth (which saw lots of play). This cost 2 less, but has a slightly worse stat distribution. More importantly, it doesn’t summon any minions as its played, meaning no extra stats and bodies, no much needed taunt, it is slower, and only one target needs to be silenced. Furthermore, its 3 deathrattles instead of 6. I wouldn’t say 5 stars, but it is at least 4.
