Dr. Morrigan Card Review

This card just seems… bad. Theoretically you can go for the “infinite loop” with Baleful Banker, but you need to build an entire deck around it, and it’s still not consistent. Not to mention that if it just gets Silenced or Transformed, that’s it for the infinite plan. No, it’s not a combo you build your deck around.

So maybe build a deck around big minions only? This will have 100% chance to pull something good then. But what’s the point? It costs 8 mana, that’s not much of a cheating. Just look how weaker Possessed Lackey got after nerfing it to 6 mana, and it’s still 2 mana cheaper than that. Playing 8 mana to pull a 10 mana minion doesn’t seem like the most efficient thing ever.

And running it in a regular Warlock deck seems outright terrible. Even the non-Zoo Warlock decks run multiple small minions – Kobold Librarian, DoomsayerPlated BeetleGnomeferatuVulgar HomunculusStonehill Defender etc. Those are terrible pulls. The card can also be Silenced before you pull anything and you spent 8 mana on a 5/5 minion. And even if you high roll into a Voidlord for example, it’s still not very impressive. You had to pay pretty much the same mana cost, and got an extra 5/5 body for one card.

You theoretically can do some Carnivorous Cube shenanigans on this card, but you can’t play those two together and it’s incredibly vulnerable to Silence, like I’ve mentioned before. If it works, then you can either pull a bunch of high value minions or just more copies of Morrigan. But the question is – how consistently will it work? My guess is that not consistently at all.

So unless I’m completely missing something, this card is just bad. Might be played in some meme deck, but I don’t see it seeing play with the current pool of cards. But Blizzard will probably troll me and reveal some sick synergies after I’ve already said that this card is trash.

Card rating: 2/10

    I know it’s really tricky but if you have

    Umbra + augmented elekk + knife jungler and empty deck

    playing Dr. Morrigan = infinity dmg

    Please correct me if I’m wrong.
    Swap = Recruit a minion + shuffle a copy of this minion into your deck.

    The entry at the top says it has 7 health accidentally

    If only it was a priest, then it could actually be good.

    This card needs 2 effects to be broken. A card like Gang-up that’s rogue-only, and a card like Molten Reflection that’s mage-only. If warlock gets a card that has both effects combined, than this card could see play, just for the fact that you’d have multiple unkillable-unless-silenced 5/5’s.

    This card is trash 1/5
    The only two ways i could see this card being played are cubelock , but it’t to inconcistant.
    The second a deck which is based around this card.You can dublicate this card (for example with cube) and the it summones itself the whole time but it is risky because you can draw the one from your deck (so the loop ends) or it just gets hexed, polymorphed. Silenced etc.
    But we haven’t seen all cards yet so i am waiting for it, maybe this even turns out to be good with n’zoth.

    Well, this seems absolutely horrible.
    It’s madam Goya 2.0, except it’s somehow worse because it costs 8 and you can’t really choose who to switch, an it’s warlock.
    Warlock did get the soularium though, so it isn’t really being hated that much, and it has been very broken in the past couple months.
    The best thing about this card is that, if you get it as a golden, you can scrap it to choose something nicer

    Oh well it’s kinda weak. But it would be fun shuffling a bunch of these into you deck (baleful banker) so that they would go inifnite until you draw the last morrigan. Idk still looks bad
    1/5

    Dr. Morrigan is alright, but like many Warlock Legendary minions, it’s just a little too weak to see play. I understand Team 5 wouldn’t want to get a repeat of Cubelock format, but the pool of cards in any Warlock deck is probably too varied to be able to consistently pull out Voidlords, Lich Kings, and Yseras. This could have easily been priced at seven mana, and it wouldn’t create an issue.

  14. GlosuuLang
    July 31, 2018 at 9:32 am

    Even if this has the potential to “go infinite”, an 8 mana 5/5 without a meaningful impact is hardly worth playing. The only way this can be useful is if you could attack with it, get it killed and pull something like Malygos with all mana from your turn to cast spells. Seems too farfetched. 0.5/5 stars.

  15. grenga23
    July 31, 2018 at 8:46 am

    people think the swap makes up for it…… but that makes it even worse…. it means you have to draw this trash a second time

  16. Piterno
    July 31, 2018 at 8:22 am

    We’ve only seen 4 cards from Warlock this expansion, lets not jump to conclusions, they could still ave some epics/rares/commons that make this absolutely insane

    Wait what if rogue gets this through pick pocket or something… all the trigger deathrattle cards coming out in boomsday can allow morrigan to pull a leeroy Jenkins or something worse to pull off a disgusting lethal

    • Killy
      July 31, 2018 at 9:20 am

      Then you would play a 8 mana 5/5 with deathrattle get a 6/2 charge. Still a card you don’t wanna play unless you don’t have anything else to do.

    • Riptide
      July 31, 2018 at 5:27 pm

      This was my thought. Love playing my thief rogue. If you can send 3 of these into your deck, you could have 3 unkillable (except silence) minions. Each deathrattle triggers individually, shuffling one, pulling another, and so on. Fill your board with these and your opponents will be pulling out their hair trying to get rid of them.

      • Riptide
        July 31, 2018 at 5:33 pm

        Curious what happens if there is no minion to swap with. I suppose it won’t just go back into your deck without a card to put on the board. Thus ending the chain.

    Madam Goya, is that you?

  19. SqueezyBear
    July 31, 2018 at 8:06 am

    So when I saw this card I was instantly relieved of a burden I didn’t know I had… that warlock wouldn’t be getting another broken legendary. This one is balanced. For people that say that this is as bad as Madam Goya, Goya just is a 4 mana swap. Morrigan provides a body and then some when it swaps.

    Ok hear me out:
    At first glance I thought this was bad. 8 mana 5/5 that could pull out a 1 mana minion is bad. Too slow to really mean anything even in a big warlock deck.

    And then I realized that it says swap.

    There are MANY more implications to this. Essentially this card never actually dies (but it technically does) and can continue to pull things out of your deck when you get it. There could be so many future cards that could play on this ability including cards that fish out deathrattle cards from your deck and lower the cost of cards in your hand and/or the battlefield.

    and correct me if I’m wrong but if it says swap, doesn’t that mean that this card will keep whatever buffs it has?

    I just have a strong feeling that this is the card that everyone initially thinks is awful, and then it becomes an essential part of a meta deck in the distant future. (similar to Possessed Lackey)

    • Decycle
      July 31, 2018 at 8:17 am

      When a minion changes its place (from battlefield to deck), it will lose all the buffs.

      • Riptide
        July 31, 2018 at 5:29 pm

        This. Moving backwards a zone will remove buffs. Board to hand, board to deck, or hand to deck.

    Oh come on cut the crap at least its better than the priest legendary. And considering lock has better cards overal this is a good legendary. And it is a support card for the glinda beleful bankers. Its kind of better to have 5/5 that replaces itself with itself or another free glinda.

    • Birdmammal
      July 31, 2018 at 6:40 am

      Because if that’s the case then it might be viable in cubelock

      • Ehss
        July 31, 2018 at 7:06 am

        Great idea…. This could potentially be great, until silenced. But if you kill it with cube, you get 2 more in the cube and one more in the deck, AND it pulls one from the deck anyway. Not too shabby.

  24. TPKPatchy

    There, fixed that for you Team9.

    • TPKPatchy
      July 31, 2018 at 6:29 am

      Still just outright worse than skull of the manari, because lets face it, you want voidlords and doomguards.

  29. Squelar
    July 31, 2018 at 5:38 am

    Wait so you basically never fatigue if you get another copy of this card? (exc. silence)

    I’m not sure how this works so I might be wrong

    • Squelar
      July 31, 2018 at 5:40 am

      wait nevermind the opponent doesn’t kill it when you have one on your board so when you draw the other one there is not a minion in your deck to shuffle with.

      wow this card sucks

  30. OlafBiggles
    July 31, 2018 at 5:31 am

    The only way I could see this being played is if biglock becomes a thing… warlock might have enough control tools to make it viable…

    Augmented Elekk + Baleful banker = infinity mode?

    • mrB
      July 31, 2018 at 5:31 am

      I think it is just “swap” and no “shuffeling”. So this card wont be 2 times in the deck. Cause u need two minions to swap, but the deathrattle just works one time when

      • Schmoozie
        July 31, 2018 at 5:33 am

        Unless you shuffle more in with Baleful Banker, and then it will infinitely swap out with itself when it dies.

        • mrB
          July 31, 2018 at 6:19 am

          Mnah, only to the point you shuffle it and draw it.. When you draw it the infinity is over. And this will happen.

    Madam Goya 2.0

  33. Kaleidio
    July 31, 2018 at 5:18 am

    At best worth it’s mana with a little extra, maybe a relatively bad way to cheat out some demons. Can’t go into stuff like cubelock due to it having the possibility of pulling… well the cube. Handlock maybe? Not really.

    If warlock had any real way to shuffle cards… maybe?
    It’s just… hm. If it wasn’t legendary it could have made for something interesting, I personally think it could be exciting with gorgonzola. Sorry, I ment Gorgon the Zola.
    Still not right. Anyway, if you get another copy of this into your deck it turns into a weird cruel dinomancer.
    Just even less reliable since you can still draw the card. So yeah.

    I don’t see any real uses for this tbh.
    It COULD be run for value, but there are just better cards.

  34. Schmoozie
    July 31, 2018 at 5:18 am

    Everyone thought Possessed Lackey was garbage too. Inb4 this is in every warlock deck pulling out huge dudes constantly.

    • Mambaman
      July 31, 2018 at 5:24 am

      Possessed Lackey doesn’t just draw any minion man… it draws demons.. so its draw pool can be controlled. This guy pulls them out at random…

      This card will only be usefull if you can make a deck with Zola and Baleful Bankers and such even than it seems like memes

      • Schmoozie
        July 31, 2018 at 5:29 am

        So control your pool by having huge minions? Big Warlock is not an entirely foreign concept, and certainly would have more than enough removal to make it work.

        • Stonekeep - Site Admin
          July 31, 2018 at 6:11 am

          The thing is, Warlock can’t get rid of all the small minions. Cube Warlock runs lots of stuff you don’t want to pull out with this, e.g. Kobold Librarian, Stonehill Defender, Doomsayer, Umbra, Faceless, Cube. You can’t get rid of all of that stuff. Even Warlock also NEEDS the early-mid game minions – some 2-drops like Homunculus, Doomsayer or Sunfury Protector, as well as 4-drops like Shroom Brewer, Hooked Reaver (it will be a 4/4), Twilight Drake (it will be a 4/1).

          You CAN remove all of the small Demons and still have a proper deck. You CAN’T remove all of the early-mid game minions in the same way. I mean, you can, but it will be just bad – it’s not worth it. You have to ruin your early and mid game for a free 5/5 body and up to 2 mana gain (if you pull a 10 mana minion) in the late game, that’s if you draw it in the first place and you survive that long…

          Not saying that this card is useless, but the strategy you’re thinking about simply won’t work.

    • KOTHOGA
      July 31, 2018 at 8:27 am

      I agree with you. Possessed lackey was underated too by everyone. Perhaps not a meta breaker but will see play for sure. Overall if its not silenced or tranformed its undistructible

  35. sylvanas
    July 31, 2018 at 5:16 am

    It seems really bad but maybe we can see a viable deck with:
    – The Soularium
    – Cruel Dinomancer
    – Dr. Morrigan
    – Dollmaster Dorian

    It will not be top tier but for sure fun to play.

  37. Ganger
    July 31, 2018 at 5:10 am

    We all know how powerful Madam Goya turned out to be… and she at least had battlecry. This is deathrattle and can be silenced/transformed/violated in many different ways. I rate this as “hardly even meme potential” 0.5/5

  38. Beachloop
    July 31, 2018 at 5:10 am

    At first I thought this card was awful and boring, but I think it’s actually a pretty cool card. It’s a minion that recycles itself back into your deck and pulls out other minions, meaning it adds like 2-5 cards to your deck depending on how many times you can play it. I think this card is awful and is a 1/5, but I think it’s a cool design.

    • Daweed
      July 31, 2018 at 12:34 pm

      This costs 8 mana.Are you sure younwant to play a 8 mana 5/5 5 times?
      This card is bad, it’s the hard truth.
      Maybe (as many cards of this expantion are going into some endless cycles) this one is planed to be one if you dublicate it (through cube) and then it summones itself the whole time but it is to risky because of silences and polymorph etc.
