doc Today we look at the rare Arcanist character Odius Diva.

Cher, Madonna, Odius…they hang out together.

This two cost 2 threshold character with 1/2/3 stats is a sight to behold. In a manner of speaking that is. Why? Because while Odius Diva is in play your opponent must play with his hand revealed at all times. Wow! Just wow!

Then there’s her good ability, “Disapprove”. For the cost of 2 you look at their hand (I guess that’s in there just incase they can counter her first ability?) name a card and your opponent must put the named card on the bottom of their deck. They do however then get to draw a card. Isn’t that special? 

With Arcanist’s mass bounce ability and hand disruption, Odius Diva will be right at home. And with a life of 2, she’s not the easiest to kill, but she will certainly be an instant target.

The “Disapprove” ability is quite simply the bomb of hand disruption. And since her ability doesn’t involve depletion, as long as you have 2 more unattached resources, if you don’t like the card they draw after using “Disapprove”, you can “Disapprove” it too! And so forth and so on.

Removing the card that is your biggest threat is just amazing. Remember though, if you pick a tactic and they can afford it, they could play that tactic in response to “Disapprove”.

In limited, where your opponent could have almost anything in their hand, Odius Diva is almost like cheating. In constructed, seeing what’s in your opponents hand should be a confirmation of your suspicions, but being able to remove a key card in their strategy will win games.

Limited: 5/5
Constructed: 4.5/5
Ian Spiegel Odious Diva

Odious Diva has the awkward resource cost of two, with a two obessession threshold. It sports an unimpressive one strength, two life, and three speed.

This card personifies control to me. It requires your opponent's hand to be revealed at all times and for the cost of two, it allows you to name a card and force your opponent to put it on the bottom of their deck. They then draw a card.

This can be done as many times as you can pay for it. Opponent has that game winning Deadly Striker? Not any more! Schproingmajig gotcha down? Send that shizz to the bottom!

It is a very cool card that I suspect will be a near staple in every constructed control deck for atleast a while. In limited it is a rather subpar body, and I therefore give it a subpar rating.

Constructed: 4
Limited: 2
