Witchwood Imp Card Review

It’s a pretty average card. Not great, but not bad. 1/1 for 1 will rarely kill something, but because it has Stealth, you will most likely be able to dictate how the trade goes. For example, on Turn 2, you can buff it with Demonfire or even Dire Wolf Alpha and potentially get some nice tempo by clearing a 1-drop.

+2 health on a random minion is a solid effect for a 1-drop, but nothing exciting. The stat-line and the effect are similar to Zealous Initiate from WoG, but this one is clearly stronger thanks to its extra advantages.

What’s going on for this card is Stealth + Demon tag. For example, if Bloodfury Potion didn’t rotate out, it might make sense to play it, as you could nearly guarantee a Demon going into Turn 3. It’s better than Blood Imp in that manner, as you actually want to reveal it and attack with it (unlike Blood Imp, which you often prefer to keep Stealthed).

In the end, I feel like it’s okay. Zoo will have to fill some gaps, and this might be one of the ways to do that, since no new busted 1-drops will be available.

Card rating: 5/10

    Blood Imp tends to be better and this would be a rather poor thing to revive off of Bloodreaver.

    In a different class I could see this seeing play, but Warlock already has much better 1-drops.

    It’s a Pretty nice Card.

    Being able to choose when you want your +2 Health.
    I see this as Blood Imp 2.0, for me.

    USeful for Zoo? I mean, Warlock already has very good 1-drops: Flame Imp, Librarian and Voidwalker. Also, this is a Demon, and very underwhelming to resurrect with Gul’Dan. So I think it will be cut from Zoo, just like Possessed Villager was powercrept away. 2/5 stars.

      I think I’d rather have the other stealthed Imp :/

        I don’t know which of those is better, to be honest. They’re not bad cards, it’s just that Warlock has other, more aggressive options. In Arena I’d probably also go for Blood Imp, since AOEs are also not that common. But having 1 attack can make the difference in many situations.
