Lord Godfrey Card Review

The other Warlock Legendary (Glinda Crowskin) is a bit more… meme card. But this? Oh my, this is CRAZY! Remember how Abyssal Enforcer was actually a decent card? This is so much better. It’s a 2 damage Defile, which would already be worth about 5 mana, with a 4/4 body attached to it. We all know how good Defile is when you can set it up. This is so much easier to set up, because instead of 1, 2, 3, 4 etc. health, you can skip every second one and it will still clear everything. You can have a 2, 4, 6 and 8 health minion on the board and this will clear everything.

This feels like a better AoE clear than Twisting Nether, to be honest. Of course, Twisting Nether doesn’t need to be set up, but just like Defile, this gets tons of extra value when you face Deathattle minions + it has a 4/4 body and costs one mana less. Clearing those pesky Voidlord boards should be easier now in the mirrors.

The 4/4 body doesn’t seem like much, but this part shouldn’t be ignored. One of the biggest downsides of Twisting Nether is that you usually start your next turn behind, as your opponent has time to fill up the board again. Starting with nothing vs having a 4/4 minion to trade into something or deal damage is a big difference.

There’s just nothing bad about this card, maybe except the mana cost. 7 mana is quite a lot in the faster matchups, but Control/Cube Warlock games to definitely last that long, even against Aggro. This should be an auto-include in this archetype, and basically any slower Warlock deck. I would be absolutely surprised if this didn’t see lots of play. Hands down the best Witchwood card revealed so far.

P.S. The only thing I don’t get is – why is this a WARLOCK Legendary? I mean, those pistols don’t really seem like a great fit in the class…

Card rating: 9/10

    This card is amazing. I see some people saying that it is just an OK card, but I think it’s pretty broken. People consider it a situational card an say it’s cost is too high, but as a wild mode fanatic I must make a stand and say that my usual turn 7 are almost dead turns, the best I do is sylvanas + dark pact. Let’s take cubelock for an example: we have to admit that there are a few “movable cards” in the deck that we might change at will, so why no put Godfrey in the deck? The 6 Mana 3/6 oldwoman triggers it’s true power almost never and it’s still a card we see from times to times.

    Big deal about Godfrey, you don’t need to wait for a perfect setup on the enemy board, U CAN FORGE ONE. Cubelocks on wild have gnomeferaru, master of mixtures and void caller(it’s the 3/4 deathrattle pulls a demon from your hand, not sure the name is right) which allows you to reduce enemy minions health to fit just right in the Godfrey’s kill range.

    Second big deal, Godfrey is a standalone card, so u don’t need to build an entire section of the deck just for him as we do with Voidlord.

    I agree that Godfrey isn’t all shinny against aggro decks, but it definitely crushes mid-range and some slower archetypes. Warlock acts pretty much as this: stay in shape and play a couple low price guys + set up demon synergy cards + if something went wrong on the last step, RESET THE BOARD. Godfrey does that with style.

    My review is, a strong standalone card that does it’s job amazingly. And isn’t that what most warock cards all about? Check other cards from the class, some of the most used don’t see play because or just because they have good stats or are slightly better than others, they see play ‘cus they’re practical. You play them, they do just what u need and then the match keeps going. That’s the reason why Renolock was such a great deck( and the only one from it’s archetype to really go for it’s name), warlock bases it’s power on cards that can take care of whatever your opponent throws at you until your in control of the match.

      “Cubelocks on wild have gnomeferaru, master of mixtures and void caller(it’s the 3/4 deathrattle pulls a demon from your hand, not sure the name is right) ”

      I think it’s funny out of the three names the only one you actually did name correctly was void caller.

    Part of what I love about this card is that it doesn’t require specifically a 2, 4, 6, 8 health minion (like defile does with 1, 2, 3, etc.) but that it can work much more flexibly with a board. if your opponent has a 1, 4, 5, and 7, health minion it will still clear. So long as there is at least 1 minion in each category of 1-2 health, 3-4, 5-6, etc, the board is gone. This is certainly deserving of its five stars, and could easily see some really cool warlock decks made around it

    Unlike defile, looks like this card will create infinity loop with grimm patron. Imagine 3/3 and 3/1 patron on a board.

    At worst it’s a consecration for 4 mana with a 3 mana 4-4 body, which is really good value in one card. Being able to clear boards with deathrattles and divine shields just makes it better. If it goes off twice it’s a better flamestrike with a free minion. Any more times and it’s OK as hell. And counterspell is useless.

    I hear a lot of people saying this is too slow against aggro. That might be the case if this was the only board clear Warlock had but there are lots of ways to survive against aggro into the late game: Doomsayer, Defile, Stonehill Defender, Hellfire, Amathyst, Siphon Soul, Lackey/Dark Pact into Void Lord…

    Control Warlock is my go to when aggro decks start running rampant on ladder. I think this card will complement Warlock’s removal package nicely.

      March 28, 2018 at 6:25 am

      overrated i think :p sure its good, but 7 mana 4/4 is slow and is way too reliant on have a 2 hp drop. Twisting nether guarantees full board clear, a consistent board clear when you are behind can literally make or break a game. It only works in certain deck against certain archetypes imo.

      • Anton Wilzewski
        March 28, 2018 at 7:56 am

        You don’t understand:
        +certainly kills all minions on board
        ->as good as twisting nether
        +kills also deathrattle summoned minions
        ->better than twisting nether at board clear
        +is battlecry-> no counter spell
        +one mana less
        +free 4/4 Body

        This card is so broken, you may even play it in aggro.

    It’s a warlock minion because it’s undead, raised by the forsaken (ie sylvanas and a couple dreadlords) after he killed himself, not wanting to follow Darius Crowley after he turned Worgen thanks to Arugal.

    • MattH
      March 27, 2018 at 8:24 pm

      but undead is a race, Warlock is a class. Not all undead are warlocks and not all warlocks are undead.

      he looks more like an undead hunter if anything.

      Besides, warlock is Demon themed, he doesn’t appear to be a demon.

    Look, I love Control Warlock. I’ve played huge amounts of it over the course of Hearthstone, from Handlock to Renolock to the tier 3 Controlock of Knights of the Frozen Throne to the top tier Voidlord N’Zoth deck we have now. I love Control Warlock. And I have to ask…

    Why the hell is this card allowed to exist?

    Seriously. Warlocks do NOT need another AoE on this power level, and I don’t think it’s going to lead to a fun experience, even though I’m likely going to end up playing it (because you’d be an idiot not to). Blizzard really needs to put a bit more effort into balancing cards’ power around the power level of a class going into an expansion release. They seem to pay virtually no attention to that as is, which is how we got Purify when Priest was down, and Psychic Scream when it was dominant. Ugh.

    • Soup And Salad
      March 27, 2018 at 9:29 pm

      Unlike Defile and Hellfire, this doesn’t really do a whole lot for the aggressive match-ups since it comes out so late.

      While comparable to Twisting Nether and often better than it if because it will often at least damage tokens summoned off of deathrattles, it is a difficult card to justify including. The only match-up this will end up being good in is in the mirror, midrange, and other minion based control and combo deck.

      This’ll end up usually being a tech card for the deck or a replacement for one of the Twisting Nethers.

      Also Psychic Scream is really only okay at the moment, it’ll get better as the format slows down, but it usually ends up only being a temporary solution to the problems on the board when you play it unless you’re playing against a token deck.

      • Stonekeep - Site Admin
        March 28, 2018 at 1:57 am

        But it does a lot in Aggro matchups too. Have you played against Dude Paladin or even Murloc Paladin? Games often last until Turn 10, or even beyond if you don’t get a good N’Zoth/Gul’dan.

        Yes, it would be bad against e.g. Pirate Warrior, which goes all in, but some Aggro decks have refills for days. Paladins, Zoo Warlocks, Token Shamans (not EXACTLY Aggro, but you get my point) – those decks can still flood the board in the mid/late game.

        Of course, you don’t replace Defile or Hellfire with it, as those cards are crucial to not die early. But having more premium AoE is not bad at all for the deck.

        • Soup And Salad
          March 28, 2018 at 6:37 am

          I have played over 300 game of Cube Warlock at high ranks over the last two months. If you can get a Voidlord out on turn 5 or 6, you will usually be in pretty good shape, unless they pull a Spellbreaker out of no where, and if you managed to get two out, the game is almost certainly yours, outside of the occasional adapt shenanigans.

          Having two or more Voidlords on the board will make so you can ignore a late game Call to Arms
          or Stand Against more often than not unless it is used in combination with Sunkeeper Tarim, and even then you’ll still have a couple turns. As far as not having N’Zoth or the Death Knight come turn 10, that’ll usually never happen if you’ve been drawing cards every turn its safe to do so.

          You are right that its not bad for the deck to have more board damage, but you’ll still usually have the game won or lost against aggro by the time it come out. It is more useful in the mirror match or against slow minion based decks.

        March 27, 2018 at 9:32 pm

        Turns 5 and 6 are the make or break turns for Cubelock during aggro match-ups. This comes out too late for that particular match-up. The effect is incredibly powerful, but unless midrange decks come back into the forefront of the format or the mirror match become the norm, this will end up being a tech card to help deal with middle to late game minion boards.

    People are overreacting to this card because warlock is broken but he is gonna be nerfed and after that you will find out that this card isn’t even that good.
    It’s kinda like a conditionated flamestrike with a 4/4 body that affects both bords btw.
    If let’s say it clears the entire board then it’s a 1 mana cheaper twisting nether with a 4/4 body not that insane. Good but not insane.

      Tell me which warlock will be nerfed??? Mybe cubelock???

    I think people are forgetting that this is a 7 mana cost card. Meaning it’s harder to combo with damage spells to set up a clear. In addition it’s legend you only have 1 Godfrey so it’s less likely to have this in your hand compared to twisting nether, hellfire, or defile.

    I think this card is fair. But it’s unfair that warlock has so many total board clear cards. Even mage board clears start to feel rather weak compared to the amount and power of the warlock board clears.

  33. PPAP
    March 27, 2018 at 10:52 am

    I think that this card is actually balanced. I don’t mean that it’s weak, but that Lord Godfrey wouldn’t break the game. If you count the value, it’s similar to Azure Drake + Defile, but a little bit better (because the body isn’t likely to survive with Drake). The same thing can be seen in Nightblade (4/4 + Hunter hero power that’s values as a 0-mana card) that doesn’t see play. I think it’s a solid 5-star card, but it’s not the meta-breaker that everyone makes out of it.

    • Anton Wilzewski
      March 27, 2018 at 11:42 am

      This is actually a lot better than azure drake + defile, because you are talking about a combo and this single card is better.
      It is easy to kill minion with one and then two health, but This card is a powercreeped twisting nether.
      It is better killing deathrattle minions, cost 1 less and has a 4/4 body on cherry top.

      • An0minous
        March 27, 2018 at 2:34 pm

        Not to mention that azure drake + defile potentially kills the azure drake, leaving no presence. This card leaves a unscathed 4/4 body guaranteed

        • MattH
          March 27, 2018 at 8:34 pm

          plus after the second hit of defile the azure drake would die meaning that the next defile hit would only do 1 instead of 2. This card continues to do 2 damage every time something dies.

        you clearly never played control warlock against aggro, do you?
        It’s an easy win 8 out of 10 games atm, and one of the reason of those 2 lost is you rarely have any minions after using your board clear, allowing aggro opponent to put another pressure next turn

        but this card? even as heavily control warlock main, I also think it’s way too OP. Like warlock need another overpowered board clear..

    March 27, 2018 at 7:50 am

    This can probably be slotted into the current Cubelock decks to fill in a spot opened up by the rotation as is and works with Baku much like the rest of the Cubelock Core. The only issue I can see with the card is that it might come out too late in Aggressive Match-ups since turns 5 and 6 are usually the turns that make or break Cubelock in the aggro match-up, and if Secret or another form of Tempo Mage is viable during The Witchwood format, it’ll be completely useless come turn 7 against whatever that deck may be.

    This seems to be a late game anti-aggro tool more than anything else, and its stats are awful for its cost. It’s great for what it will do, but outside of minion based match-ups, it’s usefulness will drop off badly.

    Unlike Defile, this will probably come in and out of the Control Warlock decks depending on how the format is shaping up. In when stuff like aggro and midrange decks are the main competition, out when Mage and other control decks are more popular.

    • doraemon1992
      April 6, 2018 at 6:42 am

      I think it’s more fit in heavy control+rin warlock rather than cubelock, since it’s like the card is designed for that kind of deck.

      one of the weakness of Rin controlock is having no body after heavy board clear in late game (hellfire+defile or twisting nether), allowing opponent to put more pressure first.

      but this card? with a 4/4 body, you can safely play your seal spell while still putting pressure or trading geoffrey, or in worst case kill it for 8 health. but whatever the case, the value is really high and probably bit broken.

      tbh, I would not put godfrey in cubelock, as the ideal playstyle of cubelock is putting enough pressure (giants and that charge demon) and using board clear that will not potentially kill your own big minions.

    not a fan. blizzard just created a class where playing minions against them doesnt matter in a mostly minion based game. board clears were designed as a comeback mechanic. not so that you can just sit back and remove stuff so that nothing your opponent does matters.

    Blizzard somehow thought that warlock was not good enough aaaaaaaaaaand they made this card.
    Another great control card! Absolutely competitive and playable. LORD GODFREY VS Haggatha the Bitch = EZ

          I think 99% of your braincells didn’t work properly before deciding to make this personal

          The reason why I wrote to Epoch was because of his wording not because of his opinion. I thought people get that 😉

            Lol such a hostile response to someone calling you a wacko.
            Toughen up man. No need to be so thin-skinned.

            But yeah I think we all agree with OP.

    Battlecry is insane for board clearing, but turn 7 is a little late versus aggro decks

      Not really when it comes to warlock, this card sends warlock over the top because of it’s amazing ability to beat midrange and finish off aggro.

        I do think its a 10/10 card. Still, Paladin can deal a lot of damage before turn 7 and refil his board on turn 8 with relative ease.

          Which is why Defile and Hellfire exist to deal with stuff before Godfrey

      Turn 7 is absolutely NOT too late for aggro, before that you’ve got Defile, Hellfire, Stonehill Defender, Possessed Lackey, Mortal Coil, Spellstone…there are a ton of ways to stall for this card, and it cleans up Divine Shield to boot. God-tier AoE in a class that decidedly didn’t need it (I say this as a huge Control Warlock fan).

        as another control warlock fan, I agree. even without this card, I can win 8 out of 10 games against any aggro opponents. not to mention on turn 8 and so on, warlock still has twisting nether, voidlord, and DK to exhaust aggro opponent in late game. This card is just kind of last nail to make 8 win become 9 against aggro..

    Does it kill itself? Like it’s a battlecry so technically it’s not on the board…
