Omedus the Punisher
So it is or it's almost finals week for you college
students, and we all know that this week is going to
be hell. I hope you have time to read my reviews all
week; I know I probably should be studying right
now, but I have a job to do!
Omedus is featured in some very powerful decks. In
card games, hand disruption is really strong because
it forces the other player to make a choice that
impacts the rest of the game. In WoW, it's
especially good because the opponent will probably
start to empty his hand in the first few turns
anyway. Omedus, suitable to his name, punishes your
opponent for discarding. And he hurts. Shadow priest
spells usually come with a discard effect, and cards
like Mind Spike and Mind Blast get better if you
play cards like Shadowform and Chromatic Cloak.
Shadow Word: Pain is a great Damage over time spell,
and once you empty their hand a bit, start the
clock. There are two ways to stop Omedus once he
empties your hand. 1: Fill your hand up QUICK. 2:
Kill him before he kills you. Choice 2 seems easier,
but is Omedus forces you to get rid of your best
cards, you're limited in ways to defeat him.
Overall, an extremely solid card, and my favorite
hero. I'm a Shadow Priest in the game, so I love
Sealed: 2.50 - Even if you get lots of discard
cards, you might not live long enough to use them.
Oh, the woes of wearing cloth!
Constructed: 5.00 - He will PUNISH you unless you
build a deck that rushes or is built to destroy him.
Casual: 5.00 - Shadow Priests are fun to play, and
casual is all about fun!
Raid: 4.00 - He's the Horde priest, and priests
heal. You need heals. And if you build the raid
around making Onyxia discard her hand early, Omedus
can put the game into Stage 3 fast.
Omedus The Punisher
This card is actually one of the most influential
heroes out there, being as the cards put into this
deck revolve from his ability and not the other way
around. The theme that's around this guy is one of
the oldest in card games period: discard. Making him
a very strong deck, at least in the sense that you
disrupt your opponent's strategy by killing their
hand. The hitch lies in the fact that you opponent
can still topdeck their answer/killer and that
spells bad mojo for you. The plan with this guy is
to have them become de-handed, then pop this guy for
Constructed: 4/5 (discard can beat decks that rely
Sealed: 3/5 (some of the better support cards in
this can be lacking, but the opponent using their
hand is still a form of discard)
Raid: 1/5 (quite ineffective, because ony's hand
size is 10 and will always place a resource each
Omedus the Punisher…
The first time I read this character’s effect, I
thought it would become the most popular Hero card
in the game. The support cards for priests include a
lot of discard effects for your opponent. On top of
destroying the opponent’s options, the Omedus player
increases the amount of damage Omedus will do when
he flips for his effect. Add to that 4 copies of
Mias the Putrid, who makes the opponent discard when
summoned, and it is a formidable amount of pain.
I faced an Omedus deck in draft, this weekend, and
was thoroughly destroyed. It wasn’t just a loss,
either. On round two, I got to a point where Omedus
had field presence, was chewing my hand to nothing,
and eventually flipped for 6 and game.
Draft: 4.0 – It all depends on what cards come out,
but if you can put some gain-life support together
for this guy, you are in business.
Constructed: 4.5 – I haven’t put the deck together,
but think it is one of the better constructs. Hand
destruction dominated the last game I played.
Raid: 2.0 – Omedus’s effect will probably be useless
against Onyxia. The dragon’s hand size and draw
power are just too much. But his support cards that
provide sustained damage, ability destruction, and
healing still make him a good support character.
Just don’t plan on being the star player. Let a
hunter pummel the dragon while Omedus absorbs her
Today we review Omedus The Punisher a Horde Priest.
Now Im gonna tell you right now this will be a short
review I don't feel there is much to say about this
His class doe's have some very good discard effects
and I really think the dark priest deck is a very
strong choice but let's talk about Omedus.
His effect is very nice for only 3 resources he
deals 7 minus the number of cards in your opponents
hand which is very good.
So if he's got 0 cards Omedus doe's 7 and so on and
so forth so Id say he is
one of the better heroes.
Sealed 5(Beacuse most of the priest really good
cards are low rarity this is
a great hero to pull)
