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
