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
