Void Contract Card Review

But why would you ever do that? I’ve seen someone saying that you might play it in Zoo. Another guy was trying to argue with me that it might fit into Even Warlock… The answer is no, twice.

As for the Zoo, I don’t think I have to explain it. It’s a 8 mana card that does nothing. It’s one of the last cards you would ever want to put in Zoo.

As for the Even Warlock, the argument was that it counters combo deck and your opponent is on average losing more cards than you are. Well, yes, it counters combo decks – that’s the only reason why you would ever consider running it. But Even Warlock doesn’t struggle against combo decks – most of the combo matchups, e.g. Shudderwock Shaman, Malygos Druid, Kingsbane Rogue are 50/50. And even if it did, why not tech in Demonic Project instead? It’s enough to improve your win rate in a combo-heavy meta. I could see running Void Contract only if literally 70-80% of the ladder were combo decks.

Yes, on average it destroys more cards in your opponent’s deck, but what does it accomplish? Against Aggro, it does nothing. Literally nothing, they don’t care that you destroy half of their deck. Same thing against Midrange. Both of them will be happy that you’ve basically skipped a turn. So maybe Control? Well, that’s also not a good idea. If you’re ahead in fatigue, you will still be ahead after playing it (e.g. 10 vs 16 will turn into 5 vs 8). Sure, you will be LESS ahead in fatigue, but it’s not that big of a deal, especially since you’re skipping turn just for that. And as an Even Warlock, you don’t want to hit fatigue anyway. Most of the time you want to have as much time to kill your opponent as possible, you want to run your opponent out of removals, stick some threats and kill them. THEY want to get to the fatigue faster. Oh, and if Bloodreaver Gul'dan is still in your deck, you have 50% chance to get rid of your biggest threat.

It makes even less sense in Control, where you just want to run Rin, the First Disciple instead.

I honestly have no clue what’s the deal with this card, maybe we’ll get some synergy for it, or maybe it’s just a meme card. But at this point I can’t seriously give it more than 1/10.

Card rating: 1/10 unless the entire ladder starts running combo decks

      Oops cut self off what was going to say is this would have been a better card in priest decks in fact worst case scenario is I’d your a warlock with this and priest copies it.

      Play benedictus right after this and your opponent on a timer till burn. Even a good card for a thief rogue due to academic espionage.

      All saying is ATM there’s no obvious deck.

    I’m imagining a deck with baleful bankers, the warlock loa, augmented eelek, omega agents, hand buff tools and this card. Demolishing decks, reloading yours. Probably won’t be super competitive but it should be fun.

    This card purely exists for the situation where combo decks get too strong. Otherwise its bad.

    Giving it 5 stars not because its good, but because its the kind of card that needs to exist, as I feel that this sort card is good for the health of the game.

      5/5 for a situation that *might* happen, in which a form of a deck that this *might* counter, *might* get out of hand.

      That’s generous.

      You know how Thanos wants to wipe out half the life in the universe, and has memeable quotes such as “Perfectly balanced, as all things should be”?

      Anything that has anything to do with halving things is now a Thanos reference, bonus points if it’s a symmetrical effect.

    It’s fun to absolutely destroy combo decks. Besides that, I can’t see how good this is; Warlock doesn’t have really any shuffle synergies (outside of Baleful Banker, which is optimistic at best), so you can’t win the fatigue game really outside of Gnomeferatu mill and DK hero power.

    Also need to keep in mind whether the opponent already has their combo or not. If they already have combo in hand (say Druid with plenty of ramp and 4-mana “Draw your combo”), then it’s pretty useless.

    All in all, an EXTREMELY situational card. Idk, there’s probably going to be some sort of wacky Togwaggle deck I forgot to mention somewhere in there. But meh.

    Honestly I’m kinda disappointed they didn’t opt for “Discard half of each player’s deck”. Woulda been a lot more interesting in terms of bing a late-game swing for Discolock, and actually might have given the card a use outside of combo-breaking. Idk, I’m probably missing some broken discard synergy somewhere in there, but considering how most of the broken schtuff is in wild, I wouldn’t be sad to have Discolock be a viable alternative.

    Unfortunately, we have neither Tournament mode, nor sideboarding in HS. I hope we’ll get a viable neutral combo breaker this expansion and rate this card 1 out of 5.

    This card is either going to be the most useful card in your deck or completely not worth playing. It can kill combo decks, but those decks already want to churn through their decks as fast as possible already.

    However, in any other match-up, it’s eight mana, do nothing. Aggressive decks won’t care and will likely win the next turn, Midrange and Tempo decks will just play through it, and Control decks might just appreciate knowing the game is going to end after thirty minutes instead of a full hour.

    Aw, someone beat me to Thanos Click.

    Also, I don’t like these control “instant win against combo” cards. Demonic Project and Gnomeferatu were bad enough, winning games on turn 2 and tilting many players.

    But this one also hurts you. In a control matchup, you want to savor your cards. Demonic Project you can wait to play and destroy the combo without risk. This will see no play.

      Idk if that is the case here

      Demonic Project is this rotation’s equivalent to Dirty Rat, a tech against decks that depend on specific minions, with a severe penalty for playing it the wrong turn (Dirty Rat would summon a stronger minion than you could deal with and Demonic project removes one important minion from your hand) while both have the chance of getting the wrong minion, thus requiring them to be played in the right moment

      Gnomferatu and this card are not like that exactly, Gnomferatu is just a decent 2 drop with the chance of burning an important card, the high number of combo decks nowadays gets Warlock to use it because of the high chance it has of burning an important card, by itself it is not a good card for that purpose and it is only used, again, because of the high number, were this not the case and were it similar to previous metas with strong combo cards that relied on less key cards and weren’t many in total, it wouldn’t see play, as it didn’t when it came out

      This card however I agree won’t see play, if you want to get rid of your opponent’s deck you might as well wait for Azari, and it is too slow and too much of a backlash for you to be used as tech against combo, this’d only see play on a deck that benefits for milling the deck, like Mecha’Thun

        Look at any one of the most recent “Hearthstone Daily” videos. IT is almost guaranteed it will include a game where someone used Gnomeferatu turn 2 to get a free win on a shudderwock shaman.

          Yeah, because we have hundreds of games being played all the time so you are bound to get a good discard from her at one point

          but it is stil at worst (played first turn with coin) a 1/26 chance of burning the exact card you need to burn, and every turn that passes and every card the opponent draws, the chances get higher, but so does the chance that the opponent draws it, and then you have no way to interact with it be it not Demonic Project, that’s why that specific card is used as the tech and Gnomferatu is just a support and a decent 2-drop witha decent battlecry (also since the opponent is playing a combo deck, they’ll be making sure to draw as much as they can wich just makes it harder to play her and get a good result)

            Gnomeferatu isn’t especially good against combo because the chance to kill, say, malygos with it is 1/30 and that’s it. It’s better in control mirrors that end up in fatigue, where it both kills a card and makes you win fatigue.

    This card remembers me the projects cards from boomsday. The only reason why demonic project saw some play is that is just 2 mana for a possible combo breaker. This card is surely decent against combo decks, and even there if they drew their combo cards before or if you are not lucky you just make it easier to them to draw the remaining cards and kill you. In a control matchup is just bad because it affects both players and then is just 8 mana for nothing. I don’t know, this just seems bad.
