Sarmoth is an excellent Warlock pet for one reason:
Opponents HAVE to attack Sarmoth before anyone else.
Sarmoth protects all your allies while the Warlock
and his army destroy the opponent. This is a great
ability, though I still hold a grudge against
Sarmoth from one fateful night. 5 of my friends
decided to take on Onyxia one night and I was
elected to play as Onyxia since I know all the rules
to the card game better than they do. Anyway, it was
me against a Warrior, Shaman, Druid, Warlock, and
Shadow Priest. At one point during stage two I had
no hand(thanks to 4x Mias the Putrid in three of the
decks, Shadowform + Mind Blast and Mind Spike, and
Brain Hacker) and was facing down a Sarmoth on
Steroids. When the raid threw Sarmoth a few good
abilities(namely Power Word: Fortitude, 2x Mark of
the Wild, and Primal Mending) every turn I HAD to
attack a monstrous 5/14 beast that would heal 1
damage at the end of EVERY player's turn. After a
few turns of topdecking(and going into Stage 3) I
finally drew my ability that destroys all opposing
abilities and equipment, then proceeded to rain doom
upon their allies. In the end, I won, so things
turned out all right, but I'll never forget how much
of an advantage they had with Sarmoth.
Limited- 3.5/5- An ally that keeps your weak allies
Constructed- 4/5- Solid.
Raid- 4/5- Allies don't last long, but if you limit
the dragon to topdecking and throw a monster Sarmoth
her way, it's worth the investment.
SARMOTH! SARMOTH! This guy sees play big time. He is
known to be the greatest protector in the game.
What's that? He doesn't have protector? Quite right,
he doesn't but he's got something better. No matter
what position this guy's in, he'll always redirect
the attack. The sheer power in that alone is
endless, and he's so tough that just one attack will
rarely bring him down. Any additional power to this
guy makes him broken (chasing a-me 01, healing,
attack bonus, etc). A must use in any warlock deck.
sealed: 5/5 (the best protector)
constructed: 5/5 (need I say more?)
raid: 5/5 (will protect everybody for a good while)
Play Cost: 3

Opposing heroes and allies that can attack Sarmoth
an attack Sarmoth only.
My favorite Warlock pet. Sarmoth serves as a solid
defense for a couple turns. His high defense
protects and kills off low health weenies. The way I
like to use this card is in combination with Leeroy
Jenkins or Chromie.
Bring out a Sarmoth, and bring out a Leeroy in the
same turn. It'll make up for Leeroy's 1 health.
Usually, when Chromie is brought out, attacks are
targeted torwards her to avoid the extra turn. But
with Sarmoth on the field, they will have to
overextend with abilities and attacks to get rid of
In a raid deck, Sarmoth will last a little longer
against Whelp tokens. Sarmoth has the potential to
defend and kill up to 5 Whelps. Not bad right?
